    Defensive? I answered your loaded question.....


    A question is just a question. It's relevant because you said 'they should cut civil workers across the board', not 'they should cut unionised civil workers across the board'. You need to learn to say what you mean, Bub.

    I figured my audience was smart enough to understand I was talking about state workers in the civillian populace.





    I have no idea whether US military is well-paid or poorly paid. On first glance, the British forces are paid poorly in comparison with civilian public employees, but when you take into account all the services and facilities that are provided for them, the comparison is much more balanced.

    We have troops on food stamps. Thank you for admitting your post came out of ignorance.

    except for the fact that every poll I have seen (even rasmussen) points to the public siding with the unions on this one and walker's approval declining. But keep going on with your fantasy world.

    Actually Ed, we are standing pretty tall and proud these days. Your boy Walker just gave us a massive shot of adrenaline and we are energized and ready for the next election cycle. We should send the Governor a nice bouquet..... of what... I will leave to others to decide upon.

    So it's not the unions fault, it's the not simple minded poor folks fault....


    Actually, I agree that the parents are part of the problem, so are the unions that don't base thier employment on merit.





    So that means the teachers can then not care and slack off, all while protesting for getting more for doing less....





    You see now where you went wrong with this comparison, no?
    Once again, simple-minded people come in all forms. I went to the University of Chicago and my professors always told us this in many different ways. They taught us/forced us to evaluate every idea, no matter how familiar or unfamiliar, from as many perspectives as possible. Some of them were liberal, conservative, libertarian, socialist, you name it, but even when we disagreed on an idea, I could tell that they had evaluated it from a multitude of perspectives.

    I don't get the same vibe from you. Like I said, you don't have to see yourself in the image I've painted of you. I mean, we're talking on a message board. But I will say this, the image you're painting of unions is wrongheaded and if it ever manifests itself in policy, very damaging. But luckily for everyone, I believe in action and I probably won't let that happen.

    How is evaluating teachers on the performance of somebody else evaluating teachers?

    And what makes you think those standardized tests are any sort of accurate measurement of what is taught in that classroom, school, or school district?

    If you want that, you must insist on a national curriculum where the mandated curriculum is perfectly dovetailed into the tests. Japan does that and is very successful at it. Other than that, each district would have to both develop its own curriculum and its own perfectly dovetailed tests to accurately measure student learning.

    Do that and then come back and we can talk about accurate measurement of classroom learning.

    So you have seen me post a couple of times, and have come to the conclusion that I am simple minded?


    Ironic, no?

    Action? what, are you going to not work, put an inflated rat on my lawn and show me what's up?

    I thought on a board about politics, you would know that action meant participating in the political system through exerting the influence I am able to have a citizen (i.e. through voting, money and finding ways of getting people to evaluate this issue for more perspectives than a convenient one). And trust me buddy, as someone who raised by hardworking parents and who survived the endurance test that is college (particularly a college where students, not me, regularly have breakdowns because of the pressure), 'not working' is not an option, even if that's the idea you have of those who support the hardworking members of unions.

    Oh well, it seems as if I'm going against my own signature- in multiple ways.

    Wisconsin's Senate Democratic leader wants to meet near the Illinois border. Sen. Mark Miller didn't say which side of the border. There's obviously the risk of being taken into custody on the Wisconsin side of the border since all Republicans need is one warm Democratic body to pass their bill.
