Governor Walker VS. Wisconsin Unions

I proudly stand behind the people of Wisconsin and the “Wisconsin 14”. The Wisconsin 14 refers to the 14 democrat senators that have fled the state. The Dems fled in order to prevent a quorum in the Senate, and thus are preventing a vote on the Governor’s financial legislation. The Senate Majority leader has several times sent WI State Troopers to their homes, to bring them to the Senate floor, and thus satisfy the quorum requirements.

Racism in America

“What racism?” people cry, “Didn’t we elect a black guy for president?” (Implying: “Doesn’t that prove that racism is over in America?”).

A few points:

First, on November 4, 2008, the United States did what only one other country that I know of ever has ever done — elect a president from a minority race in a country with a different majority race. (Peru is the only other country I can think of to have done that) That a still predominantly white U.S. would elect a black man as head of state was stunning to many. That historic accomplishment is a sign of great progress and a hope of better things to come for racial equality and justice in the United States.
