Where's the civil discourse?

    The head of the Wisconsin education union made some very unsettling statements.  Had this crowd been tea party advocates they would have been attacked mercilessly about not being civil, about trying to bully legislators!  The media would be all over them and several posters here would have been attacking them!
    Where's is the civility, where is the softer more gentle discourse?

      Obama is responsibile for inciting these protesters... his campaign organization bussed people there. Apparently civility doesn't apply to the left, the radicals!

          Think of her as a talking bobble head with a pre-programmed list of answers, and only about 5 of them...all of which blame Obama. I tripped this morning while walking my dog...asked LALO about it...Obama put that rock there.

      Had this been a tea-party protest, it would have been front-page headline news from day one. On ALL stations!

      And Fox would be canonizing them as hero's of Democracy.

      Teaches in Madison call our governor Hitler, Musollini... Is it good example for our children? No wonder our children get crazy.

    Whether this is true or not, Americans would do good to take note of what is happening there.  They will get around to other states for sure until teachers may be no more.

    Hey Logic,

    Too many people for too many years have been fed misinformation. The average person is only concerned with their survival, much more than worrying about other people's problems or survival.

    Not to mention, the average person, also has trouble discerning truth because of the amount of distortion that politicians love to spread, as well as, those who support those politicians. hmm
