World Wide Turmoil

Posted By on February 20, 2011

Things are coming unglued in the Middle East as revolution is spreading like wildfires.  The U.S. isn’t immune from this as we are seeing large protests in Madison Wisconsin over budget cuts that effect unions, entitlements and retirements.  Just imagine what happens in California (if) the special election to extend temporary tax increases gets voted down in June! Massive budget cuts in California if that happens!

 

Protests Spread to Morocco

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Morocco on Sunday to demand sweeping changes to the nation’s constitution, defying predictions that this thousand-year-old monarchy would prove an exception to the demands for greater democracy that are sweeping the region.

China rounds up 100 activists to rapidly quash pro-democracy ‘Jasmine Revolution’ …..Chinese authorities moved quickly and with force to quash a pro-democracy ‘Jasmine Revolution’, believed to have been inspired by the recent uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

And the word “Jasmine” has been banned from the Chinese Internet!

Libya… Death Toll Surges, Protesters Shot, 100’s Killed!

Iran …….For a second time in a week, Iran’s opposition drew tens of thousands of supporters to the streets across the nation on Sunday calling for the end to the Islamic Republic’s rule.

“This was the most violent protest we’ve had by far, and people were also really angry and fearless,” said one witness from Tehran, adding that the public seemed resolved to stay on the street.

Wisconsin….Budget Protests in Wisconsin for Fifth Day

Thousands of protesters gathered outside the Wisconsin Capitol Saturday for a fifth day of demonstrations against a budget bill that would strip public employees of most of their bargaining rights.

To combat a $3.6 billion deficit, the governor has proposed legislation that would require most public workers to pay for nearly 6% of their pension costs, up from none now, and around 12% of their health-care benefits, up from 6% today. He argues that the changes would merely put public employees in line with most private workers.

But the bill would also take away the unions’ right to bargain for anything other than pay. Wisconsin was the first state, in 1959, to pass a comprehensive collective-bargaining law. When protests erupted this week, the governor threatened to call out the National Guard, if needed, to man prisons and take over other services provided by unionized employees, a move that amplified anger among unions.
