Laws are only words written on paper, words that change on society’s whim and are interpreted differently daily by politicians, lawyers, judges and policemen. Anyone who believes that all laws should always be obeyed would have made a fine slave catcher. Anyone who believes that all laws are applied equally, despite race, religion, or economic status, is a fool.

Rush Limbaugh is all nerved up about some conservatives who don’t like Sarah Palin. Of course Limbaugh thinks that Palin would be a good president. Then he goes on to say that President Obama and the Democratic Party, are destroying this country. No Rush, it’s not president and the Democratic Party that is destroying this country, it is you, and likes of you with your garbage filled mouth and hatred for the president, and anyone who is a Democrat, Liberal and or Progressive.
What’s been going on in Wisconsin, and a couple of other states, with their GOP governors, and Republican led state assemblies, is unconscionably at best, at what they have done to the unionized workers, the teachers, firefighters, police, trash collectors, and who ever else has jobs with the city, town or state. These people give it their all, and they are not breaking the bank, as far as wages, pensions, etc., etc. Shame on those Republicans who were voted into office, to serve and work with their respective constituents, instead of sticking it up their asses, and think nothing of it.
The reason why this country is in deep shit, is that we had eight years of Bush and Company, with the tax breaks and give away to the idle 1% percent, while the rest of the people get the crumbs. The Republicans keep saying that if you keep giving tax breaks to the idle rich, and the big corporations, then the jobs will be there. So far, that has not really happened. What has happened is that health care premiums keep going up, more foreclosures, more people going on food stamps, and whatever help they can get, and the Republican Party keeps turning a blind eye, like it will just go away by itself.
Do the Democrats want to cut and/or abolish Social Security? Of course not. The Republicans want to do away with it, because they think there is no need for it. So, what is a retiree to do, if the Republicans got their way, since most IRAs went into the tank, and are virtually worthless. It’s just a sad situation right now, and it is going to get worse, if we keep listening to the GOP, Limbaugh, the neanderthals at Fox “Propaganda” News, and any other right-wing jackasses who don’t know any better.
Rush Limbaugh, don’t be blaming the Democrats for destroying the country. Its you, and the crazed bullshit, you spew out of your mouth on a daily basis. If this was Canada, or a few other countries, you would no be allowed to be talking like the way you do now. You would be called on the carpet, and yanked off the air. You’re lucky that dosen’t happen here, but I wish it would.
The protesting that is being waged in the Wisconsin state house, which by the way is respectful and peaceful, is what I call democracy in action. For firefighters, police, city and town workers, whether they pick up the trash, fix the pot holes in the streets, they’re for the most part union workers. They love their jobs, out there to serve and help the public. It is great that they’re united in backing the protesting teachers, for what the governor is wanting to do is, do away with collective bargaining. All he wants to do is just allow them to get raises, and no bargaining as far as insurance, pensions and whatever else they get. Its not right what the governor wants to do, and he thinks he can get away with it. I hope the hell he don’t, because if he does, he will be a one term governor.
Then of course we have the right wing loons: Limbaugh, Beck and the rest of Fox News siding with the governor, who is a Republican. No surprise there. And speaking of Limbaugh, Friday this fat ass moron, called the union workers, “freeloaders”. Here’s a guy, who never finished his first year in college, who has other jobs, and now has been spewing right wing garbage on a daily basis, and he has the balls to call good, hard working union people freeloaders? Give it a rest, Rush.
Lets not forget the propagandists on Fox News being against the peaceful protesters, but yet when the Tea Party whack jobs show up with their misspelled signs, and their mind boggling nonsense they are good at throwing out too, Fox News makes sure that the Tea Partiers get due respect. Case in point. Back in 2009, when members of Congress was having Town Hall Meetings, to explain, and to take and answer questions, at most of the meetings, it was disgusting to watch these Tea Party jack asses, scream and shout, sometimes endlessly. Of course Fox News never called them out on that. On that point, Fox News is not a “Fair and Balanced News” channel. Never was. Never will be.
However long it takes to hopefully bring the Wisconsin governor to come to his senses, then the teachers will have the backing of union members from Maine to California. To all the teachers in Wisconsin, hold on to your convictions, and whatever you do, don’t cave in. Let your governor do that.
