An Ounce of Courage

Congratulations to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Assembly for passing In a decisive blow to union power, Wisconsin lawmakers voted Thursday to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from the state's public workers. The Assembly passed the proposal 53-42 Thursday. The state's Senate approved it the night before after using a procedural move to bypass its AWOL Democrats.

Walker said he would sign the legislation as quickly as possible.

As lawmakers prepared for a final vote, at least 100 protesters packed a hallway leading to the state Assembly, pounding drums, while the Democratic representatives gathered in front of the doors, which were opened just before 11:30 a.m. At least 50 protesters were carried out by police, and the building was locked down briefly while officers did a security review, according to Fox News.

The videos of protestors storming the building, breaking through windows, and reports of death-threats to legislatures is a “shame” that the union thugs and Liberals will have a hard time living down. We don’t intend to let them forget it, either. That’s the difference between the Tea Parties and the Liberals’ guerrilla theater tactics. Other governors and legislatures are now considering similar moves to reduce the power of the unions. According to a caller on Rush Limbaugh’s program yesterday, the thugs basically destroyed what was a beautiful building a beautiful grounds. The Morristown Tea Party, after one of their events, donated either some or all of their proceedings back to the caretakers of the Morristown Green to replant whatever grass and foliage might have been ruined.

We have our own N.J. Gov. Christie to thank for leading the way. And Gov. Walker found that extra ounce of courage to see the bill through to the end – they found a way to bypass the obstructionist, AWOL Democrats (how interesting that they chose Illinois as their hideaway). Way to go, Gov. Walker and Wisconsinites!

On somewhat different topics, just an observation about Michael Moore – he seems to regard himself as a reincarnation of Saul Alinsky, urging high school students to boycott school today (I think). Moore seems to want to take on Alinsky’s mantle of negativism and proclaim himself the leader of the common man.

The middle class didn’t fall for it in the 1970s and they’re not going to fall for it now. We can and already have organized ourselves quite nicely, thank you very much.

Which brings me to the last topic of this week, a new movement called “The Progressive Tea Party.” Fox showed a video of their first meeting, with an organizing yelling at an audience that didn’t seem very impressed. They appeared to be more interested in their after-meal coffee than in tea. After the Liberals saw that the Tea Parties weren’t going away, they tried to organize an opposition movement then, which they called the Coffee Party. But it was nothing but very stale, left-over grinds.

Sorry, Liberals, but we own the Tea Party movement.
