    The mayor has a most interesting take on the banning of Republicans from the Labor Day Parade. Taxpayers money is used to pay for the event. I assume that R's pay taxes as well as D's.

    I love his line "it's a parade for God's sake".:clap2:

    Labor leaders must pay for parade if GOP banned, mayor says

    MILWAUKEE | Tue Aug 30, 2011 6:04pm EDT

    MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - The mayor of a Wisconsin town said on Tuesday a local labor council would have to reimburse the city up to $2,000 for a Labor Day parade if organizers exclude Republican lawmakers from attending.

    The move in Wausau, Wisconsin, came after a county labor official said last week that Republican politicians were not welcome at the event due to their party's stance against collective bargaining when state lawmakers voted to curtail it earlier this year.

    Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple told Reuters on Tuesday that the decision to exclude elected Republicans "flies in the face of public policy."

    "This is not a political rally, it's a parade, for God's sake," Tipple said, noting that taxpayer money is used by the city to pay for staging the event. Tipple's office is nonpartisan, and he claims no affiliation with either political party.

    Would it be too much to ask that you stop being an idiot? Or if that's too much trouble, at least stop identifying yourself as a conservative?

    Yup! You guys have got to cut morons like him from your herd. It makes it way too easy to slam Conservatism when attitudes like his are on full display.

    The Dems are the ones who made it into a political thing.
    Repubs are still in power, so they ban them from the parade and then expect for them to release the funds to pay for it?
    What in the world did they expect?

    Sure...just as soon as the people that put on the St Patrick's Day parade reimburse Boston for the years that parade has been going on.
