public and police was opposed by fdr, laguardia, and george meany -- none of them, i would say, is a republican. the reason is there is a complete imbalance when you have a public employee and a private employee. if you have a capitalist negotiating with a union, if he gives away the store he loses his shirt. you have a serious negotiation. if you've got a public union negotiating with the government, the negotiator on the other side of the table has none of his money invested, and in fact, the more lenient he is and more accommodating is to a union demand, the more likely is to be the beneficiary of the largess of the union at election time. that is why you have had these extraordinary union contracts where it is not the wages, it is the benefits. as we saw in wisconsin. they pay zero and to pensions and a quarter of what other people pay for health care. >> nina? >> a graduate of public school and the mother of a public school teacher. let me just say most public school teachers make, back -- by comparison police and firemen -- incredible little money. they do one job security. the

, they heard me... i had a little 'bitty keyboard, and i picked it up by ear. and my mom went, "george, your son has a little talent, there." pretty soon i started playing piano in elementary school. we couldn't afford piano lessons so i took 'em for free in the school district. and my teacher looked at me and said, "son, have you ever heard of the vibraphone?". i said, "no, is that that instrument that lionel hampton plays?", and he said, "yes!" i said, "that's the instrument i wanna play!", and he says, "we're gonna get you a vibraphone." and denver public schools bought their vibraphone. it followed me all the way through school, and that's how i started playing the instrument. [playing vibraphone] all you hear is notes! so, i actually came to sort of a reckoning in my life at a very early age. i think i was 16 or 17 years old, and it was the last time that i worked at a fast-food restaurant. and i remember on that friday before i quit, that i said that was the last time i was gonna ask anybody if they wanted fries with that coke. what do your parents say, or what did your parents s
