What's the average pay of the average Chicago policeman today? Chicago public school teacher? Average clerk employed by Cook County. Compare that to what police were paid vs the average wages in say 1970. Next compare the average "wage" and "pension" of public employees vs the overall private sector average today and in 1970. I haven't done this and don't know where to find accurate information - but - we all know what the results are. It used to be that public employees were paid a bit less but had far better benefits. Now they're paid vastly more and have far better benefits.
There was a time in this country when the words of Voltaire: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" actually had meaning to us. We've forgotten the Enlightenment in which we were born and too many of us have instead demanded the conformity and social enforcement of the Third Reich. God help us all if the mob that currently infests the party of Lincoln don't wake up to the wisdom of Lincoln.
