"Waiting for Superman", an "Inconvienient Truth"

“Waiting for Superman”, an “Inconvenient Truth”The truth hurts, sometimes the truth is so “Inconvenient” and Hollywood is having none of the truth.  Last night the groundbreaking, jaw dropping devastatingly sad and absolutely truthful film “Waiting for Superman”, directed by Davis Guggenheim (the liberal director of “An Inconvenient Truth”) was not nominated for an Oscar.  Five gripping documentaries were nominated for the big prize; they included: Restrepo, Inside Job, Waste Land, Exit Through the Gift Shop and Gasland.  All of these gripp

Doing the Right Thing on Spending

Though no one would think it by watching the media’s coverage of Wisconsin, reining in out-of-control spending on public employee unions is a bipartisan issue.  Though only the Republicans have taken reforms far enough in an effort to limit collective bargaining, but it was not a Republican but rather Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo who stated in his inaugural

Waiting for Superman...

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to watch “Waiting for Superman,” a heart-breaking documentary about America’s failing public school system.  Sitting with my wife (who is a teacher herself) I could not contain my emotion.  Sadness, anger and utter disgust are a few that come to mind.  The movie covers failing schools throughout the country, and profiles the brave children and few educators that are doing everything they can to improve the system. The prevailing theme of the film: the status quo will do anything to hold on to their power.  Teachers u

What Harrisburg Has to Do with Madison

Public union supporters in Wisconsin have tried to portray the controversy as though limiting their union’s power is an assault on the notion of any union, whether private or public, while Conservatives  and moderates and

Failing More Expensively or Succeeding with Less

Some voices support any sort of domestic government as long as it’s bigger—sometimes so much so that they will believe that any facts available confirm their case.

Wisconsin Defenders of Status Quo Out of Touch with Reality

It was inevitable that attempts to trim government at the state-level as well as the federal level would offend some sensibilities.  What was not inevitable was that the offended parties would do such a poor job making their case.  In a recent op-ed in The Washington Post, Harold Meyerson resorted to hyperbole, comparing Wisconsin’s new governor, Scott Walker, to Hosni Mubarak and writing: The real goal of the American right is to reduce public employee

Sometimes Cutting "Wasteful Spending" Isn't Enough

The Tea Party members of Congress demonstrated Thursday that bipartisanship is possible when used to cut wasteful spending; against all odds, they and Democrats joined together to cancel the second engine for the F-35 which had long been a symbol of government excess (being opposed by both the Bush White House, the Obama White House and the Secretary of Defense).  The Tea Party Caucus also sent an important message that—with the budgetary crisis the nation currently faces—no department ca
