Two thoughts on the Wisconsin debacle:
The media would like us to believe that Wisconsin Democrats and public employee unions are replaying Cairo in Madison. One big difference: the protesters in Egypt are pro-democracy, while the Wisconsin Democrats and unions are anti-democracy. How else can you define their trying to prevent a vote in the legislature (including state senate Democrats literally running away from their constitutional duty)?
The teachers’ union is one of the public employee unions going on strike in Wisconsin. The graduation rate in Milwaukee public schools is 46 percent. The African-American graduation rate in those same schools is 34 percent. Shouldn’t Wisconsin citizens be going on strike against the teachers’ union? Better yet, as their employers, shouldn't Wisconsin citizens fire them?
