    No. What this is really about is a teachers' union that has stood in the way of every worthwhile education reform for the past 30 years, with the exception of those that directly benefited the teachers' union itself. **** them.

    She is funny. I've seen her a few times, and have lovingly dubbed her "Rachael Madcow".

    I don't know if they're cowards, they just risked a massive recall to carry out the agenda of a few billionaire GOP supporters...

    I'd say they're just dumb cheeseheads.
    I don't see it that way.

    I think that people who can think about what all of the causes of our current economic problems recognize that Unions are at the center of of some of the problems along with Liberals who go along to get Union support and Conservative who fear the backlash if they oppose the Unions.

    As I have said over and over Conservatives need to grow a back bone and stand up for what is right and forget what is easy.

    We have to stick to the truth and facts and to hell with going along to get along.

    This is so condescending and self-important, I can't believe I'm even responding.

    Paying people and giving them pensions and healthcare is not damaging to the economy. We were doing fine when Clinton was president...and the unions were negotiating then too. I think the problem is electing leaders who let their rich friends take dangerous risks with home loans and every other aspect of the economy and then spend extra money on unnecessary ventures...like war.

    The United States is fully capable of fulfilling the demands of public workers (who despite being called greedy are probably the least greedy in the U.S. considering that many of them chose to take lower paying jobs when they could have been effing up the country on Wall Street).

    Senate Minority leader, James Barca, has just announced that the vote was illegal, and he plans to take it to court, beginning tomorrow, after contacting the Attorney General.

    Like I said, this overreaching and abuse of power is going to be shot down in very short order.

    I would expect a challenge. But then the democrats would have to admit it was about the budget after all, no?

    Overall, pensions aren't a problem. The problem is that tax revenue is down.

    she's entertaining and chipper. I watch her because I feel the need to watch someone I sharply disagree with, and she's the easiest of the lot to like, irrespective of opinion. I think, given a bar setting, we would get along.


    anywho. Let's see now how far this spreads from New Jersey and Wisconsin. let the education reform begin!
