    An operative? Christ, you make it sound like there is that much skill involved with these posts.

    Why don't you ask Haymarket what he does? He is a Democrat operative.

    You claim that you know the difference and that you understand both federalism and the separation of powers. Anyone with that understanding knows that is the end of it and the question is answered.
    So you mean it is ok for a democrat to take away bargaining power with a wage freeze but what is going on in Wisconsin is bad because it is the GOP.

    You'll notice that, as your link's name implies, 66% of Wisconsin 8th Graders read at a basic level or below....that's as compared to the 32% that are rated proficient.

    Obviously, this can't be the fault of teachers???
