That's pretty sad when over half the people, who are responsible for choosing the future leaders of our nation, don't even know who the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is. That's exactly how biased media outlets can push so many falsehoods about the court so that they slant to their own views.
It makes you wonder if there is any hope for our country.
The assault on workers and organized labor taking place in Wisconsin has been all the talk this week, but it looks like what we are seeing there will start popping up in more places. Here in the buckeye state yesterday, a similar protest broke out:
Hundreds of union protesters again packed the Statehouse in protest on Tuesday as government officials from around the state lined up in support of a bill that would wipe out Ohio's nearly 30-year-old collective bargaining law and make other union changes.
A crowd of firefighters, police officers and other public employees overflowed the hearing room, packing cat walks and filling the Statehouse Atrium and Rotunda to standing-room-only capacity for much of the afternoon. It was the second week that hearings on the bill drew such crowds.
The Senate bill, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Shannon Jones, would eliminate collective bargaining rights and salary schedules for public employees across the state. GOP Gov. John Kasich has expressed his support for the bill in concept, but he has also signaled he may bring forth his own plan that could go even further — including banning public employee strikes.
In Ohio it appears the only way to get a raise is to actually work for the Governor:
Strickland’s Communications Director Keith Dailey, for example, currently makes $89,003. While Kasich’s Scott Milburn is getting a bump to $120,000.
Press Secretary Amanda Wurst currently makes $69,992. Rob Nichols will get $90,000.00.
