As Wisconsin unions rally to protest Gov. Scott Walker‘s emergency budget proposal that would get rid of most of the state workers’ collective bargaining rights, video posted on YouTube appears to show teachers pulling high school students into the conflict.
The video, taken by Wisconsin’s conservative MacIver Institute, shows students from Madison‘s East High School claiming their teachers brought them to protests at the State Capitol and also openly admitting that they really don’t know why they’re there:
The Daily Caller: Who is @MayorEmanuel? Rahm wants to know
I don’t follow @MayorEmanuel – too many F-bombs for me.
Libs are getting desperate out there – The Daily Caller reports: Cartoon aardvark joins House Dems to save federal funding for PBS and NPR:
The friendly but silent aardvark joined Democratic Reps. Edward Markey of Massachusetts, Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and others to hit back against Republicans who have pledged to cut the funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in the next budget.
“We need your help today,” Markey said as a person dressed as the character walked toward the Capitol building. “We can’t leave Arthur and all of his pals in the lurch.”
Oh yes we can.
Liberals see a conspiracy to shut them down. “Extremists in Congress have introduced six—yes, six—bills that would slash all funding for NPR, PBS, and other public media,” says the liberal site Politicususa. “In an era of media consolidation, fewer national and foreign bureaus and mass newsroom layoffs, NPR is one of the only media outlets actually bringing listeners more reporting from around the country and around the world. Despite its fulfilling that important need, the United States spends a mere pittance on public media, compared to other industrialized countries,” added the site.
MoveOn has started a petition drive.
Jill Stanek is keeping an eye on abortion funding cuts: Budget delights: Reinstating Mexico City policy, removing taxpayer funding of DC abortions, eliminating UNFPA funding – Wow
Tres bien, but essentially just undoing Obama’s damage…
More good news from Stanek: State employees fired, all PA abortion clinics under microscope in wake of Gosnell carnage
People are going to have to start paying attention and this has to get to the right people who can legislate, go to court, enforce contempt of court rulings, etc. or we’ll be living in caves with no wood, no matches. Only solar panels where there is no sun and windmills where there is no wind.
And to Doc Hastings Chair of House Natural Resources: let me be perfectly CLEAR, I’m sure you are competent and a very nice man, but writing letters to Obama’s minions, doing op-eds in The Hill and issuing press releases is NOT going to get this fixed. Even if Obama does read these letters, which I highly doubt, I am sure he immediately tosses them in the huge trash can next to his desk which also contains wadded up copies of the Constitution. We are losing thousands of jobs. We are losing coal mines, natural gas and oil wells and exploration. Millions upon millions of dollars in revenue and taxes which should be keeping us energy independent from the Middle East especially now when things are so uncertain are going down the tubes.
I am not normally an alarmist, but what I am seeing is truly alarming. A four-alarm fire with no fire hydrant in sight. Gonna lay it all out:
