I had hoped to have the site up by last weekend, but it took our tech guy until today to get to it. I should have it ready to go by tonight, or tomorrow morning at the latest. The site is ready to go, I just need to fill it with content, which I’ll work on after dinner. Obviously, I have a lot to work with.
Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse was the top vote-getter in my poll. Hubby’s been helping me with the header – tell me what you think of it, (so far):
Oh, I see some of it got cut off. Here’s a smaller copy:

The site is now live, but it’s still a work in progress: Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse.

Hey, Maybe It’s Time For a Conservative Counterpart to “Tea Party Tracker”
Oh my goodness… how big are this guys’ gonads? Watch to find out:
Note how our conservative friend smiles and makes valid arguments, while the Koch-obsessed union protesters respond by hurling profanities, and then try to drown him out by chanting or booing.
Shut up, they said.
Wondering why the guy’s smiling?
Maybe he understands this is the last gasp of the left-wing’s union stranglehold on the economy:

While some members of the GOP are getting wobbilly, I say man up. The reason why the left and the unions are screaming so loud is because they are losing both the argument and the visuals: as Powerline puts it:
I agree with Roger that this is a watershed moment. I think it is George Will who supplies the appropriate term for what we are seeing: “reactionary liberalism.” The petulant public employee unions and their associated goons swarming the Wisconsin capitol remind me of nothing so much as George Wallace blocking the schoolhouse door against integration, or the scenes, played out on national television in the early 1960s, of Democratic politicians whipping up mobs and setting dogs on civil rights marchers in the South. It was a clear sign the old order, also dedicated to preserving illegitimate privilege, was collapsing.
These protests aren’t a sign of strength, they are signs of weakness as the union bosses can’t quietly slip in the goodies they want. Or as even EJ Dionne acknowledges (and deplores) the Tea Party is winning.

Chris Kobus, otherwise known in the right-wing blogosphere as The BlogProf, was interviewed over a week ago by a reporter from the Oakland Press, which Kobus notes is one of the bigger papers in the Southeastern Michigan area.
The idea of the interview apparently got going after the severe snow that we have gotten here in Michigan, especially in the month of February. So Carol contacted Oakland University where I work and media relations contacted me.
Watch parts 2 and 3 at The BlogProf. You’ll be glad you did.
That interview lead to the same article hitting several different papers with different headlines:
The Oakland Press: The climate debate rages on
The Macomb Daily: OU professor says stormy winter has nothing to do with global warming
Daily Tribune: OU professor says stormy winter has nothing to do with global warming
The Macomb Daily: OU professor calls global warming ‘a hoax’

When Republicans outsmarted Dem Reps in Madison, last week – finally breaking their 3 day long filibuster, and passing the budget repair bill, all hell broke loose on the Assembly floor. There was wailing and gnashing of teeth not heard of since the notorious Siberian Dig punched a hole through to hell.
Proceed with caution, the sounds you are about to hear are very disturbing indeed:
*Yes, I know the Siberian Dig story is an urban myth.
Unfortunately, that outrageously cacophonous uproar made by Wisconsin Democrats on the Assembly floor, is not.
The new civility means conservatives are supposed to shut up and let liberals have their way, apparently. This isn’t a climate of hate…. it’s a climate of righteous indignation, you see, because being “anti-union” is “deplorable”. (Some guy told me that in the comments.) Free speech isn’t for fascist, non-liberal points of view. “Union busters” and Faux News are just getting what’s coming to them.

“One thing I think should make clear – the people coming after us from every live shot here, these people hate,” Tobin said. “These are people who don’t respect diverse viewpoints. In fact, they’re so afraid I’ll present a diverse viewpoint, that’s why they try to heckle me and shut down every live shot. They’ve made it clear, that what they want to make it harder for me to do my job. They are proud of that when they disrupt a live shot, when they really trample over the First Amendment rights or the First Amendment’s obligations of a reporter. Now, I am not saying that’s all of the people. Those are the people that come here and heckle and try to disrupt things. I look in their eyes – there is hate in their eyes. They don’t want to hear any kind of viewpoint that is different from their own. That’s why they do what they do.”
Later on, Fox Anchor, Greg Jarrett spoke with New York Post Columnist and Fox News contributor, Michael Goodwin about what we’ve been seeing in Madison. Goodwin nails it when he notes that the ugliness as evidence of the entitlement culture:
Oh, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how the MoxNews Video viewing lowlifes responded to that last video at YouTube—-all class as you can imagine:
Jes*s H. Ch**st, this is some serious f*cking propaganda. F*CK FOX!
F*CK YOU FOX NEWS!! AND TO THE F*CKING RETARDS WHO SUPPORT WALKER!! FASCIST F*CKERS AND F*CK YOU OLD RETARD FOR TWISTING HISTORY!
Lefty thugs have no self awareness what-so-ever. They obviously have no idea how they look to normal people, which is why this stuff keeps happening. This works in our favor in the long-run, but it doesn’t work for the poor older woman who got shoved in the short run:
Watch as one of the thugs violently assaults a Tea Party Patriot from behind:
Tea Party Patriot, Bill Greene, the man who was violently thrown to the ground by the union thug, explains what happened in this video. He says he tripped over the older woman’s walker, after the thug swiped him.
If you still can’t see the thugs after this weekend, you are willfully blind.
