Note to Gov. Walker: take a page from Reagan.

It's all over the news that there are protests at the State Capitol and the Governor's private residence in Wisconsin. What might also be in the news, but I haven't seen as much, is that the teachers and students present are there illegally. They're taking advantage of sick time to join in a political rally and based on video I've seen they're encouraging students to be truant as well.

I'm not going to advise Walker to arrest the teachers for contributing to the delinquency of a minor (though it is appealing to me). I will, however, advise him to take a page from Reagan when he had a group striking illegally: fire them all. I have no tolerance for people who don't show up to work and I doubt the majority of Wisconsin citizens do either.
