Paul Jacob has an excellent and brief article about the supposedly “non-violent” protests going on in Wisconsin now. Oh, and remember all that hot air about toning down the (tea party) rhetoric when Gabrielle Giffords was shot?
Check out this video of the unions in Wisconsin calling the Governor all kinds of nasty names. I’m not a believer in the media being “liberal,” but they are inherently pro-state and will tend to support those who hold state power with fawning admiration. Don’t believe me? Check out the “New Mexico’s Mr. Smith” article on retiring Sen. Jeff Bingaman.
In order for New Mexico to get out of the nation’s economic basement, Gov. Martinez is going to have to take some tough stands against the unions as well. I hope she is up to the challenge.
