Not only did this liberal activist judge deliberately misread Rule 93, she refused to order the teachers back to work, claiming their illegal strike was not a strike.

But it's all "for the children", right?

The "entitlement mindset" that permeates not only the U.S. government but also much of the voting public was clearly displayed recently when a union protester in Wisconsin asked a Tea Party activist the following question: "Why do you have a right to your money?"  Of course with politicians such as Howard Dean publicly declaring that it is the "job of the government" to redistribute wealth this is the kind of nonsense that you are going to get.(This was forwarded to me and I thought it an appropriate addition here).

This is all working as planned…

This law will be knocked down because these right-wingers couldn’t wait the required number of hours to vote on that un-American bill; and by that time enough republicans will be recalled to prevent it from going through again. And then Gov. Walker will be recalled next January completing the full backlash in Wisconsin…

Then we’ll finish the backlash in 2012 by reelecting Obama and taking back the House.

"Republicans, who hold the majority in both the State Assembly and State Senate, counter that the official Rules of the Senate and Assembly waive that notice requirement during Special Sessions of the legislature, like the one in which the budget repair bill was considered.

Senate Rule 93, which provides that for special session bills,“no notice of hearing before a committee shall be required other than posting on the legislative bulletin board,” was actually authored in 1983 by Democratic State Senator Fred Risser (D-Madison), with current Senator Tim Cullen (D-Janesville) the first co-author. The rule’s Assembly counterpart was also implemented in 1983, and supporters included Madison Representative Midge Miller, mother of current Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller (D-Monona)."

I cannot believe the born again Christians who do not believe in unions and pensions, etc. Thank God for the Catholic church which believes in a living wage etc. Not all Christians are more concerned about the afterlife than making heaven on earth. I find the born again types extremely selfish.
