It takes an education to value an education/It takes losing an election to devalue election results.

P1060921

That might look like Russ Feingold is thumbing his nose at Scott Walker, but enlarge and see that it's just gesturing. Teacherly gesturing. The sign says: "Russ teaches at Marquette/Scotty dropped out/It takes an education to value an education." Let's rewrite that: Russ was voted out of office/Scotty was voted in/It takes losing an electoral loss to devalue election results.

Yet another group of white racists demanding even great white skin privilege!

A veritable Klan extravaganza!

So, in 1776 Liberals fought for Liberty? Cool.

So, does this mean that the modern day liberal wants to be an evil white wealthy slave-owner (which is how many of them seem to view those 'liberals' who fought for Liberty back then)?

Awesome...we have Walker being compared to Nazis and conservatives being compared to the British redcoats.

Its truly amazing to know how many truly stupid people there are in this world, and how little they know about history, much less politics.

And its ironic that the guy standing right next to him chides Walker's lack of an advanced education as a reason why he is an idiot.

Is conservatism quite simply the free market? That's what the National Review editor Emmett Tyrell said last weekend on BookTV.

Hey, if you don't understand revisionist bullshit history, blame a teacher.

Big Mike said...

Am I the only person who has noted how completely the positions have switched between the parties?

Once it was Bill Buckley and conservatives who vowed to "stand athwart history, yelling Stop." Today it's the Democrats, liberals, and unions who are trying to derail history, by fair means if they can, by lying and cheating if they can't.

Hey! Didn't Democrats say they wanted change? How much more change can we get than for liberals to be the ones who want the US frozen in time like some Cretaceous insect caught in amber.

Yes, noticed that too. Didn't know that the Puritan militia at the battle of Lexington of Concord was a liberal force. But I'll take that sign as gospel, and be glad to have learned something new.

"It takes an education to value an education."

This premise is flatly wrong. There are innumerable uneducated people who value something they do not have, in fact, overvalue it outside an education bubble.

Yes, but did Scotty end up going to a better school and is Russ teaching because he can't do anything else?

PS If you remember the Carson show, the guy with the Feingold sign is a dead ringer for Floyd R. Turbo.

In conclusion: the first sign shows elitist condescension (liberals truly at their worst), and the second sign is a historical, self-serving fantasy; unintentionaly funny and chuckle worthy.

It is true. In 1775, the Republican Governor in Boston decided to pass a law that forbid unions form organizing.

One unions - Ye Olde Teachers Union Local #2 in Concord - refused to disperse, and the redcoated state police was sent out to break up the assembly.

The state police were soundly defeated, and driven back to Boston.

And thus, the war began. This is just the latest battle between organized labor, and the forces of evil arrayed against them.

It's true! You really have to go through the public education system to appreciate its true worth. Until you do, all you've got are unconfirmed suspicions.

I wonder if he made fun of Palin's 1773 comment?

I'm sorry... on the ballot in Wisconsin, did it say next to Walker's name.. "Vote for him, he'll bust public sector unions"

Unless it did, this isn't devaluing the election results.. its protesting an egregious change in working conditions for thousands of people.

In the U.S., unless Walker also changed the Constitution, we have the freedom of assembly.

Lisa,

You should be sorry. Partly, that involves having the decency to shut up. It's (see that apostrophe?) possible if you shut your mouth long enough, you might learn something and not be as stupid. As it is, you didn't listen to Scott Walker campaign and now don't like him following through on his pledges, which makes you ignorant.

Again, you are a sorry excuse for an American and you should be sorry.

Thanks.

I suspect he could have gotten even more votes if it had.

What "egregious changes in working conditions" are you referring to?

Also, no one is challenging freedom of assembly. That's a bizarre reaction to arrive at from people simply disagreeing with you.

I thought that whigs( but for patriots, that is rascal last refuge) were against the revolution. Lord North was a whig , that is a liberal .

It was the Democrats who were against civil rights and formed the KKK. That means that the liberals are KKK members and racists. See we can all play the History game - and I didn't have to twist the truth to do it.
