Teachers Staging Sick-Outs To Protest in Madison…So It’s Not Really About The Kids

Sorry, not the best video work…Some of the teachers are proud to admit they called in sick to protest.  They are proud to admit they shut down their district.  Some districts even colluded with the teachers unions to facilitate their districts teachers participation in the protest as two teachers admit in the video.  It is wrong for the teachers to use their students as they have, and the sick-outs are even against the law.  It sends a terrible message to students.

If you want to find out how many teachers in your district called in sick, submit an open records request to the district and see.  Remember this in April when referendum time comes along.  School District Open Records Request

Patriots Support Evan Wynn At His Home In Whitewater

Patriots showed up in Whitewater to support Rep. Evan Wynn in Whitewater.  The call went out late yesterday when we learned that AFL-CIO unions were going to protest in front of Rep. Wynn’s home in an attempt to intimidate.  Thanks to all the patriots who got up very early and helped support Evan and his family.

Below is a picture of the Unionists that showed up.  Unlike the papers reported, there were only 11 people.  Here are the links:

Wisconsin High School Teachers Bring Students To Protest

I think the video speaks for itself…Funny they have to let kids out of school to get enough protesters.  Now that’s Astroturf!

Here is one of the more comical signs we saw in Madison today in the capitol building.  The protester holding this sign was an active participant in the protest.  I think he may have smoked his pipe a little early and thought this was a legalization rally!
