It’s still relatively warm here in Bagwine, Ohio and Schmoop is coming home early today, so it’s gonna be a good day.
And tonight? Schmoop and I will be
Good times. Good times. But with that being said, I have to say something…
The state governments of Ohio, and other states, particularly Wisconsin, are currently launching attacks against the Collective Bargaining rights of their public employees.
The attacks are bullshit and here’s why.
Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) and Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) claim that stripping public employees of their current right to bargain collectively is all about balancing budgets.
It has nothing to do with balancing budgets. It all has to do with eliminating unions…period.
It is one thing to ask for concessions in tough economic times, but to null and void rights that have been in place for years is nothing more than an attempt to emasculate the political power of unionized public employees.
If Walker and Kasich want to take the hard earned bargaining rights away from public employees, they should publicly hoist up their balls and have the courage to say what the reason is.
The reason is not fiscal responsibility.
The reason is that they want no competition in raising campaign funds for their next election and blaming public employee unions for economic woes could help them to achieve their goal.
Walker and Kasich are, to be nice, disingenuous, to be realistic...
They are liars…and in way, pretty damn un-American, and more concerned with putting the fix in on their next election rather than fixing their respective economies.
With that being said, let’s get back to having some fun.
Jayman and I had one helluva good show on I’m With Stupid last night. Our President’s Day Extravaganza was thirty minutes plus of non-stop hilarity.
We had a sexy crowd in the chat room and offered all an entertaining and historical look back on our Presidents…or something.
When you get a chance, you can listen to the show using this handy-dandy BTR listening device:
You’ll be glad you did. Lastly…
We had a guest in the chat room last night that I’d like to acknowledge. Her name is Shannon and her site is Shan’s Last Shred of Sanity.
If you get a chance, look her up…she’s uber-cool. You can go to her site by clicking HERE.
Have a wonderful weekend all, and as always…
