An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

….so even union members can understand.
Teachers’ unions and representatives of every liberal interest group in the country may have taken over the streets of Madison for demonstrations, marches and speeches, but inside the Wisconsin governor’s mansion its chief tenant remains calm and resolute. The Badger State’s budget will be balanced, Gov. Scott Walker (R) assured The Heritage Foundation in a one-on-one interview. The stakes in Wisconsin are high not just here, but across America.
“I’ve said all along the protesters have every right to be there, but I’m not going to let tens of thousands overload or overshadow the millions of people in Wisconsin, the taxpayers of the state, who want us to do the right thing and balance the budget,” Gov. Walker told us. (Click here to watch the interview.)
….while trashing the building owned by the taxpayers of Wisconsin. Real class acts, as always. Honestly, I expected to see the stoners sliding down the the banisters…..naked.
But didn’t I hear on the news somewhere Gadaffi said Libya was all stable and such? Guess he was wrong, eh?
I get the impression that GOPers have a bit more faith, and hope, in Reince than they did with the previous head. Just an impression. Still haven’t coughed up any bucks in support cuz we’re at that ‘wait and see’ mode’.
I’m sorry, but I don’t want a junkie nurse taking care of the Mr, or anyone else in my family….or ANYONE at all, period! If they get help, and are clean for a certain period of time, fine….let them work. But until then…. Oh HELL no!
I still think it was a good idea to drop those bombs to end that war. If we hadn’t, what would these experiments have yielded and how many more would have died?
Don’t tell me….this will be Bush’s fault, too! Or Scott Walker’s?
It shouldn’t be just the ‘hopefuls’ supporting Walker’s bill. Every single THINKING person should be out in support of this move. The state is broke. The country is broke. And much of that can be laid directly in the lap of the feckless unions. It’s long past time to tell the selfish children NO!
Well, it’s about bloomin’ time!! Hopefully, other states will follow Texas’ lead, instead of the clucker types out in la la land!
Until groups like this stop focusing on color, there will be no equality, for anyone.
I just really hate it when so called Republicans show their true colors as RINOs. Grow a backbone dude, and retrieve your balls from the back pocket of the unions.
Chuckie needs to remove his head from his hinder! Social Security is unsustainable, in it’s current form. Phase it out! It was NEVER meant to be a retirement fund, but a supplement….IF needed.
Why? To what purpose is a “National Institute on Public Discourse” when there are nothing by lies upon lies upon lies being spread? I, for one, wouldn’t mind civility, but I think we are past the point of no return on that. And, just who is paying for this phony institute?
When they say ‘world’, they mean mostly the U.S. We all know that their fellow Arab countries aren’t exactly generous to those in need in their own countries.
Sometimes, it rather interesting to see what other countries are doing to attempt to fix similar problems to ours. Looks like there might be some new leadership coming soon in Ireland. Looks like conservative ideas are really growing.
Let’s face it, we think he sucks. We’re right. He does.
So much for all that ‘freedom’ our military brought to Iraq.
Seems to me, if you tax a person for doing a particular job, wouldn’t you have fewer people actually doing such a job? Doesn’t seem terribly logical.
We have ships in the area, right? A couple of well placed torpedoes would definitely solve this particular problem, wouldn’t it?
Aren’t teachers suppose to be reasonably intelligent? Evidently, it’s not a requirement anymore. The big difference….giving businesses a tax incentive, brings in businesses, which in turn, provides jobs, which in turn, brings in more tax dollars. What do the teachers contribute to the coffers with their Cadillac health care, and “free” pension plans? Instead of whining, as they are wont to do, they should be praising Walker’s plan to actually bring in more money to the state, which pays their freakin’ salaries!
I wouldn’t swear to it, but I don’t think bombing your own citizens is a real good way to calm ANYONE down.
The mob mentally is alive and well in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
