Update 2 – Liberal Alters – Unions

It’s been a whole day since I updated the Union Liberal Alter, but the events in Wisconsin scream for comment.  First off a little recent history.  In 2008/2009 we were repeatedly told that “elections have consequences” and that Democrats won and they could rule as they pleased.  It turns out that the electorate was not very pleased and in 2010 we had more of those election consequences only this time the Republicans swept.  The Republican sweep in the U.S. House was the primary focus of most news reports, but perhaps more importantly was the Republican sweep in the states.  The Republicans now have 29 governorships and have “more seats in the state legislatures than they have had since 1928” and they are itching for real change.

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  Big New York Brother wants to use the occasion of the failed truck bomb to “flood Manhattan” to stop future attacks.  Someone needs to explain how an inanimate object like a video camera will stop attacks.  Will they be fitted with propulsion systems to they can hurl themselves at would be attackers?  It would be more economical to use drones to fly over the city like on the television series “24.”  My prediction is that they’ll buy cameras made in China.
