Egypt and Wisconsin

February 19, 2011

It’s been suggested that there are parallels between what has been going on in Egypt recently and what is currently going on in Wisconsin. We must not forget that these are vastly different situations. In WI we aren’t discussing rights, rather the issue is over a very modest request for individuals to pull a small part of their own weight and also to give those workers the freedom to work as independent employees rather than continuing to be forced into union membership with dues forcefully withheld from their pay. At the moment we have no discussion at all mostly because the Dems have fled like cowards, halting any debate in the state senate at all.

In Egypt they were ruled by a dictator. They’ve managed to get him out only to replace him with a military dictator and unfortunately it looks like they’re headed for a caliphate. Lets hope that they instead move toward democracy but thats just not too likely, is it?

We have a true representative republic here, where democratic elections have consequences. Stimulus and Obamacare were rammed through on the federal level two years ago in spite of the massive public outcry against them. Only a few years ago Doyle and the Democrat controlled state legislature forced through a budget repair bill in under 24 hours that raised taxes by a billion dollars! It is the movement that rose up as a result of those events which has turned the tides completely. Now that the other side is playing the same game the libs and unionists are crying foul and stomping their feet. We weren’t listened to two years ago, why should we listen to you now?

The people of this state yearn to be set free. Set free from oppressive taxation. Set free from forced unionization. Set free from the thuggery that has shut down our schools this past week. The voters have spoken and I believe their will is going to be enacted whether the unionists agree to it or not.

MPS Teachers Who Abandoned Their Students Should Be Fired

February 19, 2011

So MPS had to close today, shut down completely and have all the students stay home. Must have been a blizzard? Nope. So many radical unionist teachers called in “sick” and then drove straight to Madison that the district was too short staffed to operate.

This is outrageous! Just who do these teachers think they are? While they are trying to label their actions as justified they are actually tantamount to an illegal labor strike! The names of each teacher who called in sick today should be published for the public to see and they should all be fired!

Word is coming from Madison that their schools may not be back in session until Tuesday. If MPS teachers try to pull this stunt again they’ll have a full parent led revolt on their hands. It’s one thing to have kids stay home for the weather, none of us can control that, but when the teachers launch an assault on our Children’s education we won’t stand for it.

I can’t wait for Gov. Walker to get the ball rolling towards permanently breaking up MPS. When that happens each and every employee of the district should be required to reapply for their jobs if they want to continue to work in this city and this type of behavior should be explicitly forbidden. If you call in sick you’d better be at home or you should face termination! Try pulling this kind of stunt anywhere else and you won’t get far, it’s time teachers are held to the same standard.
