TIT FOR TAT

TIT FOR TAT

June 14, 2011

(Tit for tat is an English
saying meaning "equivalent retaliation"
)



I literally love Bob Herbert. I’ve read his columns for years and have blogged on a few. He possesses a wealth of wisdom and along with that, enormous intelligence. And even with all that
talent he, believe or not, is a humble man… a rare trait these days.

His comments on Rachel Maddow's Show give good reasoning to why Anthony Weiner has to go and makes mucho sense. Yet many liberal voters have embraced the question, why is Anthony Weiner being thrown under the bus by Democrats when Republican miscreants were left off the hook.

Even Rachel Maddow has weighed in on the side of the angry liberals who would like only a TIT FOR TAT action concerning Weiner. If there are Republicans who have descended into perversion and stayed in office then why are Democrats holding Weiner to a higher standard?

Listen to Herbert explain this with so much casual integrity. "I think that there's a lot of reasons he should leave. First and foremost, I don't think Democrats should be behaving like Republicans. I expect Republicans to be hypocrites -- I expect politicians to be hypocritical, and I expect Republicans to be at a heightened state of hypocrisy than most politicians.”

RIGHT ON BOB!

Rachel, I love you too but on this one YOU ARE WRONG! thinkingblue

Divided Wisconsin Supreme
Court upholds anti-union law

June 15, 2011


Is this the beginning of the end for WI and our nation? When FACTS can be manufactured to affect the outcome of a very POLITICAL debate then there is nowhere else to go but UP for the GOP and its Koch Brother Tea Party offshoot. Even if this decision doesn't end in the WI Supreme Court and goes to SCOTUS... The political imbalance there, will only allow it to stand... Why even bother to spend the money for this to happen?



It is a sad day for WE THE PEOPLE and for our nation. The people, The facts, The Truth are no longer important. Where did the SILVER PLATTER come from that was under the OUR FREEDOMS which was handed over to Scott Walker and his Tea Party? Never mind, I know THE KOCH BROTHERS BOUGHT IT! thinkingblue


Divided Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds anti-union law

MADISON, Wisconsin (Reuters) – A sharply divided Wisconsin
Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a controversial measure that
curbs the collective bargaining rights of public workers in the
state can go into effect.

In what was essentially a 4-3 decision, the high court overturned
a lower court, which had ruled Republican lawmakers violated the
state's open meetings law when they passed the measure in March.

"Access was not denied," the Supreme Court declared in
Tuesday's decision. "There is no constitutional requirement
that the legislature provide access to as many members of the
public as wish to attend meetings of the legislature or meetings
of legislative committees."

But Tuesday' 68-page decision was a thicket of concurrences and
dissents, reflecting the sharp divide the measure has created in
the state itself.

David Prosser, whose recent reelection to the state's high court
had been hotly contested by opponents of the union measure, wrote
in his eight-page concurrence that GOP legislators had good
reason to rush things they way they did, given the ugly mood of
protesters at the Capitol.

"The circuit court concluded that the legislature should
have provided public notice of the special session conference
committee 24 hours in advance," Prosser wrote.

"The court did not acknowledge that thousands of
demonstrators stormed and occupied the state Capitol within a few
hours of the notice that a conference committee meeting would be
held." MORE HERE
