Why would we want to go to the parade anyway? While "labor" organizes and protests, we actually work for a living.


I wasn't aware that boffing your sister/aunt was working.

well by broadening "republican legislators" to "republicans and "not asked to be a part of the event's production" into "not allowed to go" subby's made a real fark thread here.
 
2011-08-28 10:34:38 PM
fail subby, on sooooo many levels. First off it was Republican LAWMAKERS, not republicans. and it was all about who were not invited. No one was banned. Anyone who wishes to come and watch the parade can do so, but the article i about who was invited to -participate-. There's a difference. And this pretty much is customary I imagine. Most parade committees invite who they want to be part of it. Generally speaking most parade aren't partisan, but I doubt a gay pride parade would invite a lawmaker who actively called gays a threat to moral society and out to corrupt minor children. Considering Republican lawmakers made the labor issue so partisan, it's not unreasonable to not invite them. Not only would they probably not come, their presence would likely be pretty disruptive if they did come.

That said, I bet if they asked they probably could, in fact come.

Way to manipulate the story to get the headline you wanted. Faux news has taught you well!

On the flip side, the term "illegal alien" did lead to a hilarious episode of Alf in which someone tried to blackmail him for being one :)

patent holder: Wisc union teachers aren't doing a very good job:

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is an annual standardized test given to 4th and 8th graders around the country to measure proficiency in math, science, and reading. Participation is fairly universal; if you've had a 4th or 8th grader in the last few years, you're probably familiar with it. Results are compiled on the NAEP website, broken down by grade, state, subject and ethnicity.

So how does brokeass, dumbass, redneck Texas stack up against progressive unionized Wisconsin?

2009 4th Grade Math

White students: Texas 254, Wisconsin 250 (national average 248)
Black students: Texas 231, Wisconsin 217 (national 222)
Hispanic students: Texas 233, Wisconsin 228 (national 227)

2009 8th Grade Math

White students: Texas 301, Wisconsin 294 (national 294)
Black students: Texas 272, Wisconsin 254 (national 260)
Hispanic students: Texas 277, Wisconsin 268 (national 260)

2009 4th Grade Reading

White students: Texas 232, Wisconsin 227 (national 229)
Black students: Texas 213, Wisconsin 192 (national 204)
Hispanic students: Texas 210, Wisconsin 202 (national 204)

2009 8th Grade Reading

White students: Texas 273, Wisconsin 271 (national 271)
Black students: Texas 249, Wisconsin 238 (national 245)
Hispanic students: Texas 251, Wisconsin 250 (national 248)

2009 4th Grade Science

White students: Texas 168, Wisconsin 164 (national 162)
Black students: Texas 139, Wisconsin 121 (national 127)
Hispanic students: Wisconsin 138, Texas 136 (national 130)

2009 8th Grade Science

White students: Texas 167, Wisconsin 165 (national 161)
Black students: Texas 133, Wisconsin 120 (national 125)
Hispanic students: Texas 141, Wisconsin 134 (national 131)

To recap: white students in Texas perform better than white students in Wisconsin, black students in Texas perform better than black students in Wisconsin, Hispanic students in Texas perform better than Hispanic students in Wisconsin. In 18 separate ethnicity-controlled comparisons, the only one where Wisconsin students performed better than their peers in Texas was 4th grade science for Hispanic students (statistically insignificant), and this was reversed by 8th grade. Further, Texas students exceeded the national average for their ethnic cohort in all 18 comparisons; Wisconsinites were below the national average in 8, above average in 8.

Not only did white Texas students outperform white Wisconsin students, the gap between white students and minority students in Texas was much less than the gap between white and minority students in Wisconsin. In other words, students are better off in Texas schools than in Wisconsin schools - especially minority students.

Conclusion: instead of posting soundbites on Fark, maybe it's time for Wisconsin teachers to take refresher lessons from their non-union counterparts in the Lone Star State.


Tread lightly here... Most folks that bother to putdown their views in pneumatic word here on Fark have this strange verbose denial as to why public service unions should exist... And even worse... Why they seem to think that they are somehow good for everyone who falls victim to their sense and self importance and inherent lack of accountability.

cardex: patent holder: To recap: white students in Texas perform better than white students in Wisconsin,


in 2009 Wisconsin ranked #2 in the nation for SAT scores (new window) Texas ranked #45



Way to cherry-pick your statistics. Here they are in total:


Mean SAT scores by state, 2010:

State Overall Score National Rank Participation Rate
Wisconsin 1778 3rd 4 percent
Virginia 1521 34th 67 percent
North Carolina 1485 38th 63 percent
Texas 1462 45th 53 percent
Georgia 1453 48th 74 percent
South Carolina 1447 49th 66 percent


Mean ACT scores by state, 2009

State Overall Score National Rank Participation Rate
Wisconsin 22.3 13th 67 percent
Virginia 21.9 22nd 20 percent
North Carolina 21.6 26th 15 percent
Texas 20.8 35th 30 percent
Georgia 20.6 40th 40 percent
South Carolina 19.8 46th 50 percent

So only 4% of Wisc students take the SAT (those likely to go ivy) and of course they score high.

Majority of Texas students not ready for college, ACT results show

A majority of Texas high school graduates who took the ACT this year lacked the skills to pass introductory college courses in math, reading and science, according to a report on the college entrance exam released Wednesday.

In English, 60 percent of students showed they had the skills to pass the course, although that figure - like the numbers for reading and science - trailed the national averages in those subjects. Only in math did Texas students (48 percent) beat the national average (45 percent).

A total of 101,569 Texas seniors - 36 percent of the class of 2011 - took the ACT, which measures competency in English, math, reading and science. More than 1.6 million took the test nationwide.

Nearly one in four Texas students hit benchmark scores for college readiness in all four subjects. That was the same as last year but is a gain of 6 percentage points from five years ago. Nationally, 25 percent showed college readiness in all subjects.

Compared with last year, Texas students were down slightly in English and science, up in math and unchanged in reading.

As on other student achievement tests, minority students trailed their white counterparts on the ACT, although some of the gaps were dramatic.

For example, just 9 percent of black students were found to be ready for introductory science courses in college, compared with 43 percent of whites. About 13 percent of Hispanics had the necessary skills.

Minority students did best in English, with 35 percent of blacks and 42 percent of Hispanics showing college readiness. But 80 percent of whites reached the benchmark.

"Too many students are still falling through the cracks," said John Erickson, interim president of ACT's education division.

The college readiness benchmarks specify the minimum scores needed on each subject-area test for a student to have a 50 percent chance of earning a B or a 75 percent chance of getting a C or higher in a first-year college course in each of the four subjects. The benchmarks are based on actual grades of college students who previously took the ACT.

The composite score for Texas students on all four tests was 20.8, the same as last year and just below the national average of 21.1. A perfect score is 36.


Yep...Texas schools are doing stellar.

//BTW: WI's score is 22.2 Link

Yes, Texas' school system is so awesome that they stick to standards that are below the national average. They refuse to adhere to the higher national standards, because they'd rather teach their revisionist wharrgarbl, and therefore are superior.

Makes perfect sense.

Texas does not want to be part of this country. Let. Them. Go.

Yeah well, that argument was put forth by a Texan claiming to be smarter and richer than anyone that might vote for anything other than a Republican. Once numbers started rolling in he abandoned his case to watch "football".

So for anyone else that might want to bring the state of education in Texas into question here I'll just say the guy that used that as his example of Republican intellectual superiority quit defending his position and went off to watch grown men pull other men to the ground and then lay on them in a big man pile.

The Republicans should be invited to participate in the parade. The unions should donate enough resources to line the entire parade route with crates of rotten produce, and let the tomatoes fall where they may.

My comment was more of a thought about Texas in general. Anyone arguing for Texas' superiority when it comes to education is either Tea Party drone, a religious fundie who likes the changes they're making and trying to make, or an idiot - but I repeat myself.

Seriously, Texas seems to do whatever it can to not be part of the union. When they say that "It's like a whole 'nother country" they're not lying, and it's not a good thing.
 
2011-08-29 06:36:32 AM
I have to admit I kind of smiled. Republicans and what they have been doing these past few years kind of pisses me off. But this is not right. They should allow republicans to march like everybody else.... They should be, out in public given a piece of the mind of labor too, seeing how they throw us under the bus for their rich pals and business at every turn.

TruckeeTrees: namatad: Republican Rep. Sean Duffy's office received notice from parade organizers this week that no Republicans would be invited to walk in the parade. Duffy's chief of staff, Brandon Moody, tells WAOW-TV the congressman was hoping differences could be set aside for the family-friendly event.

the rest of wisconsin had hoped that the GOP would have set aside their difference and be family-friendly all year round.

sorry GOP, no one wants to be friends with you now. you have been bad neighbors.

Apparently enough of them wanted to be friends with them to keep them in the majority despite all the recall efforts.

It's a LABOR day parade! Labor. Day. Parade. People who are being honored and remembered for working hard everyday, folks who every other day of the year recieve little respect in most cases. Started out as a day to honor organized labor. It's been diluted to now include even non-union labor.
Republicans (especially highlighted in Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio) are absolutely anti-working people.
"Council president Randy Radtke says they choose not to invite elected officials who have "openly attacked worker's rights" or did nothing when state public workers lost most of their right to collectively bargain."
Sounds entirely copasetic to me.
It's labor's parade - seems like they can invite whomever they choose.

Not very familiar with SCOTUS rulings are you?


Apparently neither are you. This is a parade sponsored by a private entity, just like the RCC in Boston sponsors the St. Patrick's Day parade. They are allowed to ban gays from participating in their parade, and unions are allowed to ban Repukes, Repeat after me--PRIVATE ENTITY. The parade is not being paid for with tax dollars. The SCOTUS can't (and won't) do a goddamned thing.

So did the Democrats get there asses handed to them when they did not lose a single one of their 3 senators up for recall? Or was it when they won 2 of the 6 Republican seats that were up for recall? Seats that were in rather heavily red districts. Or was it when they got more overall votes in the recalls then the republicans?

Are there actual names of people associated with these unions being cited or is this just repeating what you've been taught all these years? And no points for blanketing all unions as evil, provide actual citations of this alleged thuggery. We'll wait.


It's funny that the anti-union people keep throwing out the thug label, which was only accurate in the early days of union organizing while ignoring that the reason the unions used thugs in the early days was in response to the company bosses hiring thugs to break up those unions. Of course those bosses were seen as heroes by the anti-union folks.

kenny's mom: Wisconsin's state-university faculty were prohibited from bargaining collectively until 2009.

I wonder how many "elected officials" of either party went to bat for them over the past half-century, or likewise members of labor groups like the "Marathon County Central Labor Council," the teachers' and municipal unions, much less the statewide private sector unions.


//a not-too-bitter Democrat who nonetheless feels that Wisconsin's sudden labor "solidarity" is at least a tad inconsistent with past practice...


well, actually... the unions (at least the various public sector unions) had been desperately been trying to get the UW System non-represented (faculty and "academic staff") the ability to collectively bargain. now granted, they went about it in a rather terrible way and when they were having problems with the legislature in getting collective bargaining, they started trolling around the UW trying to make a case that all unrepresented academic staff was hired illegally and the UW System needs to have "unit clarification" in order to reclassify the unrepresented's job positions so that they are absorbed in to their bargaining units. which wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, cept the seniority and benefit systems are fairly different and they didn't seem to want to reassure/convince the non-represented staff that they were trying to represent that they weren't going to get farked over by becoming represented.

which... on a related note, man it makes me laugh my ass off when people seem to think that all this noise in WI was orchestrated by these big, powerful public worker unions. some of these dudes can barely organize their way out of a paper sack. the teachers unions, yeah, those dudes have their shiat together... but most of the other unions, esp the ones for "professional" public employees (like lawyers, engineers, IT workers, etc.) have some moderate to severe communications issues. my boyfriend got 3 emails from his union throughout the entire 2 months of protect, occupation, etc. three. not exactly the lockstep marching orders the right would paint it as.

[d2o6nd3dubbyr6.cloudfront.net image 640x433]

Texas is #49 in verbal SAT scores in the nation (493) and #46 in average math SAT scores (502).

seems they're okay until about the 9th or 10th grade and then they start failing,dropping out. (as soon as they're legally able)

so keep your 4th and 8th grade outliers. look at the bigger picture.


If we are not going to cherry pick data we need to look at population demographics and include in factors such as percentage of population that speaks english as a second language or are not lawful residents.

No, I am attempting to point out the hypocrisy.

You cannot be against discrimination when you do it yourself

Why should Republicans be allowed there?
Would you expect neo-nazis to be invited to the Million Man March?
Would you invite an Al Qaeda member to an American soldier's funeral?



Not very familiar with SCOTUS rulings are you?


What SCOTUS ruling applies here? An Al- qaeda member could show up at the funeral, and protest non- violently outside, sure (though he probably wouldn't last long) but if he wanted to come in, the family and funeral home would be allowed to refuse him. Same with the parade- a non- government entity is paying for and holding the parade. They get to choose who participates. This doesn't mean Republican legislators can't attend- they can- but if the organizers want to exclude them from actual participation, they can.

cptjeff: Lamune_Baba: Doctor Funkenstein: Besides, the kid you spit on and bully on the playground isn't going to invite you to his birthday party and you don't have the right to whine about it when he doesn't.

Be lucky you're not in Sweden. You can be sued for that.

/aw, who am I kidding...
//you'd get sued for this shiat in the U.S. too.

You can be sued for anything. Doesn't mean you're gonna win.


It does mean you're going to lose a shiatlot of money defending yourself.

I'm my goal is to fark you I win regardless.

fluffy2097: Molavian: Yeah, there's definitely a lack of mentioning that the Democrats got their asses handed to them in the recall elections in this thread.

It's not fair to make fun of retarded voters.


Only two demographics made significant changes to their voting habits in 2010, from what a friend in the county Democratic Party tells me: The young ones didn't vote, and the LGBT vote split roughly 50/50 (they leaned hard democrat in 2008).

Since Walker trotted out the "suprise" union-busting and the Bachmann's started running their mouths, the tone in the gay bars certainly suggests that the LGBT community will unite behind the Democrat banner again.

That leaves it up to you young folks in 2012.
