Mirror Mirror…..

I’m posting live from Disney.  Just realized the bastards don’t have FoxNews on their channel list.

However, in other interesting news….

Twenty-nine percent of likely voters would blame Democrats for a government shutdown, compared to 23 percent who would hold Republicans responsible, according to a new poll conducted for The Hill.

Whoops!  THAT wasn’t expected.

The results are surprising because most people blamed the GOP for the last government shutdown, which occurred during President Clinton’s first term. A week before the 1995 shuttering, polls showed the public blamed Republicans by a two-to-one-margin.

Hope and change folks….Hope and change!

Sarah Palin and Unions

Okay, okay, ya know the joke about Democrats wantin’ Sarah Palin to run for President…..?

That’s how I feel about Barack Hussein Obama siding with the Democrats in Wisconsin:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 25% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of this tactic [fleeing the state to avoid a vote], while 67% disapprove.

Oh, gawd, oh Pah-leeze, Obama come out and side with the Democrats in Wisconsin!  PLEASE!

Unions: The Other Side of the Story

Some time ago, a ruling allowed corporations to contribute to political campaigns as individuals do.  That is, they can.

In fact, not only can they contribute, but they can actually take out advertising for these political campaigns.  Just like individuals.

And the Left went nuts.

But check this out:

Even more important than the money unions give directly to candidates, the Senate leader said, is the cash the unions spend on their own buying TV and radio ads in support of Democrats. By his count, Fitzgerald said the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state teachers union, dropped nearly $1.6 million in independent spending in four Senate races last fall.

In addition, two national unions – AFSCME and the Service Employees International Union – gave more than $1.3 million since 2008 to the Greater Wisconsin Committee, a liberal group that advocates on behalf of Democratic candidates.

Nice, huh?

And while corporations tend to give in rather equal amounts, Unions give upwards of 94-100% to Democrats.

Just sayin’.

Collective Bargaining and Test Scores

Labor strife continues to captivate the nation as Democrat lawmakers in Wisconsin are hiding out.  Similar actions have taken place in Indiana with their Democrat lawmakers heading to Illinois as well.  Votes are either underway or are being considered in a number of other states.

The movement is afoot.

But is it worth it? Continue reading

North Carolina Charter Schools

There are a couple of topics that keep me in conflict; I admit it.  I have tried over the last few years to resolve the issue but can’t really seem to come to a good conclusion.

Lemme explain.

Only In a Leftist America

Only if you are a Democrat will you give someone the choice to take the life of a child but deny them the choice of belonging to a Union.

Robin Hood

Who knew that Robin Hood was a Libertarian?

Who Is John Galt

There are few books that I consider must read.

Atlas Shrugged is one of them.

Now it’s a movie.

Wherein Pino Channels Barack Obama

Sometime ago a young President wannabe uttered the fateful words:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

In the spirit of that cooperation, I offer you my plan on dealing with the Wisconsin situation.

Obama And Unions

In what is clearly a state issue, President Obama has decided he needs to weigh in on the proposed legislation in Wisconsin.

Long a fan and powerful ally of unions in general, it is no surprise that Obama would come out in favor of the specific debate in Wisconsin.

Further adding to the list of non-surprises is his choice of words and his tactic of rhetoric.
