What's this Blog About?

Politics in Wisconsin as they roll up to every level... and some other thoughts that may cross my mind are explored here from my lefty point of view. My values shape my opinions. You'll always find them in here. Let's have some fun exploring why Liberal values are American values!

Your comments are both welcome and encouraged!

Wisconsinites have unprecedented voices in the confirmation process of Judge Samuel Alito. Let’s use them! We will have materials by and about Judge Alito to read (or bring your own), to help make it clear why the Senate must not allow him to serve on the Supreme Court. All are welcome to speak out against Alito’s nomination. Speak in any language, all ages invited including high school kids and grade school kids, union, non-union, grandparents, parents, people of all sexual identities, faiths, races, creeds, immigration status', etc... If you are against the Alito Nomination, please tell the world why!

Please join us - for as little as an hour, or as much as 24 hours!!

If possible, RSVP to crwfd@yahoo.com with the time we can expect you - so we can make sure all 24 hours are covered.

PROTECT OUR FREEDOM: STOP JUDGE ALITO

Judge Alito is NOT in the mainstream. He is an extreme conservative who - as a Judge - has written or voted that:

• Making a woman get her husband’s permission for an abortion should be allowed
because it was no worse than making a minor get her parent’s permission;

• Police should have been able to strip search a 10-year-old girl;

• The fiancee of Chinese woman who had been forced to abort their child could not
get political asylum because he had not yet been able to marry her;

• There was no reason to reverse prosecutor’s decision to strike all potential black jurors in a death penalty case;

• Environmental groups could not sue a polluter - even though the company had
violated the Clean Water Act 150 times;

• The government could revoke an employee’s sick leave and then fire him for
taking that leave;

• An employer could insist that a woman who had been severely sexually harassed go back to work with the co-workers who had harassed her.
