In a recent address to the National Governors' Association, President Obama said that, in spite of how some Republicans might feel about the stimulus bill, it definitely helped their states. But if the money the government spent has real value, it will have come out of real labor.
I sent my first “tweet” a few days ago, and must admit, that at first I didn’t “get it”. But now I see the value in this Social Media platform; I guess one must always experience something to really understand it. The value of Twitter is this: Tweets are faster than Facebook, and for high profile, fast moving, and fluid events i.e.
Do you remember filling out your ballot in November 2010? I most certainly do remember re-electing my Governor, and attempting to unseat my Congresswoman. But I also remember that there were lots of less known folks up for election, folks like your School Superintendent, or Treasurer, federal and state judges, your police chief, sheriff etc. And if you are like me, you had no idea how to vote in concern to these smaller posts. But hopefully like me you went to the internet and tried to determine to the best of your ability where these lesser known candi
Do I spot a chink in the Armor? We Tea Partiers can only hope so. Project 21 and FreedomWorks Fellow Deneen Borelli recently wrote a hard-hitting, accurate piece of anaylsis in the Daily Caller concerning the long awaited counteroffensive to President Obama’s war on fossil fuels.Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/07/the-counteroffensive-to-president-obamas-war-on-fossil-fuels-begins/#ixzz1G7BuXncI
For years, public sector unions have hoped that their employers would forget that they were their employers; that they could advance independent of the same demands that workers in the private sector face, such as performance review and a competitive marketplace. November demonstrated that the voters are no longer standing for this, and governors in these states are following through on the voters’ demands. But the voters are not the only ones who recognize that the old way of doing things needs reform. The books say so as well.
“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
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
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
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
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.
