Weekend

Two days left in my vacation.  It has been a particularly good one.  I still have to go through my books – probably tomorrow.  Today will be spent running errands and hanging out with the kid.  Tomorrow I hope to go through my books and work on writing.  This is one of my better vacations.  … Continue reading Weekend

Book Publishers Beware!

Governor Walker just repealed the Equal Pay Act.  This is criminal in my eyes.  Women already don’t make the same as men.  The excuses I hear for women earning less is that they are more likely to take time off for having babies.  My answer to that is who do you think put the baby … Continue reading Book Publishers Beware!

The American Public has spoken

The news is good from both Ohio and Mississippi.  Ohioans told the government to leave collective bargaining alone.  Mississippians protected women’s reproductive rights.  Perhaps this will tell the Tea Party and other conservatives that they aren’t really representing the majority but in reality a minority.The leaders who are following the radical right conservative should take … Continue reading The American Public has spoken

Rally

Last night Ken and Alicia stood on the bridge with about 75 - 100 other people protesting the governor's budget and the actions taken by the government.  Mom and I drove by several times, honking to show our support.  Mom took pictures (of course) and then I took her home.  Ken and I went to … Continue reading Rally

Politicians…

I watched the Governor's news conference today.  He tried to convince all of us what a horrible position we are in.  He can say we are broke a million times and every time he does I think about the tax breaks he gave his cronies.  What he really said were half truths and lies.  I … Continue reading Politicians…

Building Wisconsin’s Economy?

Here are a few numbers for people to consider.  Since before Walker took office here are some things he has sent away for us. ·         800 Million in High Speed Rail funds·         23 Million in Broadband funs – WI libraries fought for this and it was supposed to go to schools, libraries, police, fire and … Continue reading Building Wisconsin’s Economy?

Rights in Jeopardy

I’ve been reading the articles and announcements. I’m not one to just believe some of the propaganda put out by one side of an issue.  I will go looking for information until I can get information from the original source.I watched Walker say he was surprised that the protests were peaceful.  He’s called out the … Continue reading Rights in Jeopardy

Money Money Money

I’m looking at an 11% plus cut in my pay due to Governor Walker and that is on top of the 3% I already took with the furloughs.  This is significant as it will put me from making it to not making it.  I’m a public employee and proud to be serving the public.  I … Continue reading Money Money Money
