I have been following the developements in Madison over the past few days with dismay. I am very upset about the pure hate many consevatives have been spewing towards Wisconsen teachers protesting Governor Walkers union busting tactics. I take this personally because I am part of the Madison Wisconsen Sweet Valley High School graduating class of 1990.
I got a qualitie education in Madisen. The teachers were top notch. They cared about me 1st and there well being second. When my teacher called in sick I was pretty sure it was because she was sick. Almost all my teachers never carried a flask. And those that did told me that they had filled it with Yoo-Hoo.
As you know, certain moments you share with teachers in high school you remember for the wrest of you’re life. I remember my 9th grade history teacher, Mrs. Fauxcher. After about a month of hearing how America was discovered and eventually colonized by white devils, I had a question about Christopher Columbus.

Imagine if you will, it was the best of days–it was the worst of days. A labor union is paying a man (who we will now refer to as Lefty) to protest a right wing extremist group…or something.
Lefty and several of his comrades are riding in a sweet Greyhound bus on the way to the protest. Sure his flask is already empty, but he still has half a pack of Kool menthol cigarettes and a full can of Red Bull. Lefty is riding high on a whiskey, tobacco and sugar buzz. He feels unstoppable.
Meanwhile on the other side of town, Tabitha Hale of FreedomWorks is just wrapping up her lunch hour Bible Study group. She looks out the window and sees an old lady, struggling to cross the street. Tabitha runs outside immediately to help the old spinster. How could she not? It is her way.
This week I released the first chapter of my graphic novel, The Infidel, as a pdf download (which can be read on computers and most eBook readers). The Infidel is my artistic response to the atrocity of 9/11. It is a story about twin brothers Killian Duke and Salaam Duka, whose Muslim background comes crashing to the forefront of their lives on 9/11. Killian responds by creating a comic book featuring a pigskin-clad superhero named Pigman, who takes on Jihad. Salaam’s response is full submission to Islam. Pigman’s battle against his arch-enemy, SuperJihad, echoes the escalating conflict between the twins.
Try to imagine a Law and Order episode where a gun-loving, Sarah Palin supporter is revealed to be a Tea Party member on the stand, in a trial where a radical Left attorney is using a charge of racial bias to sue the police for wrongful prosecution.
What are the odds that character would be the most heroic recurring character on Law and Order?
But that’s still not good enough for Newsbusters, which slammed the excellent CBS drama The Good Wife, for even allowing the antagonist on the show to make the charge– even though it was effectively shown to be false!
In an article entitled, “Prime Time CBS Drama ‘The Good Wife’ Impugns Tea Party as ‘Racist Organization,” the usually reliable Bret Baker “impugns” the show’s writers– and his charge is false.
It’s not even a close call, or open to interpretation. The charge is flat out false.
There seems to be some confusion over the spelling of the Libyan dictator’s name:
Gadhafi? Gaddafi? Khaddafy? Kaddafi? Qaddafi?
Allow me to be of assistance. It’s M-u-r-d-e-r-e-r.
And his first name isn’t Moammar, Muammar or Moamar. It’s M-a-s-s.
