Wisconsin Collective Bargaining Bill Published As Law Today

    The bill the unions fought desperately to defeat was published Friday by the Reference Bureau.  It was published with a footnote about the restraining order which acknowledges the order but also notes that the Bureau must publish laws within 10 days. In a massive oversight by the democrats, the restraining order was taken out against Secretary of State Doug La Follette.  He is not responsible | Read More »

    What’s With Walker and Wisconsin?

    OK, I’m officially confused by what Walker and the Republicans are (and are not) doing in Wisconsin. It doesn’t square with the battle that they launched, and seems to suggest a deal in the works. Gov Walker pushed the budget repair bill through in a late-night session called on barely two hours’ notice. At the time I didn’t see any real reason to do it | Read More »

Imagine that those protesters agitating for a conservative agenda rushed police trying to secure the capitol; smashed windows; broke doors off hinges; locked other doors from the inside with handcuffs; threatened to disallow legislators into | Read More »

    Straight Into Darkness

    2010 became the year many Americans realized that the emperor stood shivering in the nude. Liberalism was dead, the Liberals had killed it; what now would the Liberals do? The impact of this Nietzsche-like revelation has awakened the American conscience to the existence of a major crisis. Namely, America is run, lock, stock, and barrel by a set of governments designed by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. | Read More »

    Walker goes for the trifecta!

    I’ve read a lot of comments from WI union members over the course of the last week and I find it surprising that so many of them seem not to understand the most damaging, to unions, of Walker’s proposed reforms.

As reported by Fox News, the decision that overruled the voters of California was made by openly gay U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker.
