Look Who’s Being Violent! Wisconsin Unions! I Thought Libs Said it was the Tea Party that was Violent!

After learning the state Senate passed the collective bargaining portion of the budget repair bill without the 14 missing Democrats, the Capitol erupted Wednesday evening as protesters flooded the closed building against a court order.

The hearings where the Senate passed the bill lasted less than a half hour, prompting the building to officially close around 6:30 p.m. Protesters outside chanted in frustration, “Let us in.” 

After about an hour and a half, protesters stormed the building’s entrances, forcing themselves past police blockades.

Protesters who remained in the building past the hearing’s conclusion ran the risk of being arrested for disorderly conduct because of a March 3 court order that declared people could not occupy the Capitol after hours.

Now this is funny stuff, because THIS is what liberals accused the Tea Party of being like.  But, the Tea Party has never behaved like this.  Liberals make all kinds of lying accusations against conservatives.  But, when liberals don’t get their way, look who behaves violently.  It’s very hypocritical and very funny! Bravo for Wisconsin Republicans who stuck to their guns!

Victory! Wisconsin Senate GOP Votes to Strip State Workers of Collective Bargaining Rights

Apparently, state legislature Republicans have more spine than Republicans in Washington:

Bypassing Democrats hiding out in Illinois, Wisconsin Senate Republicans voted Wednesday night to strip state workers of their collective bargaining rights.

Republicans voted 18-1 to pass the stripped-down budget bill in a hastily arranged meeting. None of the Senate Democrats were present.

The State Assembly is expected to vote on the bill Thursday.

All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker’s so-called “budget repair bill” — a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall.. 

The Senate requires a quorum to take up any measures that spend money. But Republicans on Wednesday split from the legislation the proposal to curtail union rights, and a special conference committee of state lawmakers approved that bill a short time later.

Wisconsin Senate Democratic leader Mark Miller said Wednesday Democrats will “join the people of Wisconsin in taking back their government,” but he refused to say when.

The lone Democrat present on the conference committee, Rep. Tony Barca, shouted that the surprise meeting was a violation of the state’s open meetings law but Republicans voted over his objections. The Senate then convened within minutes and passed it without discussion or debate.

Spectators in the gallery screamed “You are cowards.”

No, sorry!   The cowards were the Democrats who thought hiding out was going to get them off the hook with the taxpayers who foot the bill for greedy, demanding unions.  Republicans decided to call their bluff and do an end run around them.  This is great.  Maybe Democrats will think twice before pulling another “run for the border” move in the future.  I applaud the Republicans in Wisconsin for doing the right thing.

High Schools (and America) Have Lost that “Lovin’ Feeling” for Obama

Poor Obama.  A couple years ago, he arrogantly told Democrats the difference between Hillarycare and Obamacare is “you’ve got me.”  Well, apparently, that isn’t enough, anymore:

The White House is ramping up an effort to promote a nationwide competition to decide which high school wins a commencement speech by President Obama.

 An internal White House memo indicates that the White House is facing a shortage of applications less than a week before the deadline.

The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11 after few schools met the original application deadline. CBS News has learned a White House Communications Office internal memo dated February 22 noted “a major issue with the Commencement Challenge.”

“As of yesterday we had received 14 applications and the deadline is Friday,” the memo said. The memo also urged recipients to, “please keep the application number close hold.”

A follow-up memo on February 28 reported receipt of 68 applications. Noting the competition among more than 1,000 schools last year, the memo said, “Something isn’t working.” It called on staffers to ask “friendly congressional, gubernatorial and mayoral offices” to encourage schools to apply. 

Officials were unable to explain the reason for the apparent lack of interest, beyond pointing to possible procrastination by school systems.

It’s extremely easy to explain.  After more than two years of disastrous policies which have bankrupted the country, Obama isn’t the “one,” anymore.  What high school kid wants a commencement by the guy who threw mom and dad out of work?  Nope, sorry!  Obama, the country doesn’t have that “you’ve got me” feeling for you anymore.  Here’s a video, in Obama’s honor, that sums up the situation nicely.
