Progressives, Let's Get Focused

I don't get to blog everyday, but I get here when I can. It's been about a week since I've been out here, and today I look at all of the blogging that's going on right now, and it's a little scary. Individual comments about everything under the sun all over the place. While there are a lot of good blog topics going or right now, such as issues in Indiana and Wisconsin, there's also a lot of meaningless crap. It's also clear from a lot of the comments that right wing hacks are cluttering up the scene.

Views from Indiana

I am a public school teacher in Indiana, not a good place to be right now. Thom talked about the Republican destruction of the Hoosier middle class and I am sad to report that Mitch Daniels has just about finished what he set out to do on the day he was sworn in to office in 2005. First executive order from Mitch was to eliminate collective bargaining for state employees. Union membership for state employees has dropped to an all time low of less than 10%. Throughout his tenure as governor of Indiana, Mitch has made it difficult for the teachers' union, the Indiana S
