Hot time in WI

Monrovia, CA

#1 Feb 21, 2011
Residents of WI have referred to Walker as "the Mubarak of the Midwest" in reference to the Egyptian leader ousted by popular protest, and accused the governor and unnamed corporate allies of trying to "rob American workers of their fundamental rights."

Last week, 14 Democratic state senators essentially boycotted the legislature and went to Illinois to prevent a quorum from passing the bill. The measure's opponents say they won't allow a vote unless Walker negotiates on the plan to eliminate collective bargaining rights for everything but wages.

Democrats need to draw at least three Republican lawmakers to the block the bill or otherwise renegotiate the proposal.

Walker rejected such a deal Sunday in an interview on FOX News Sunday.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, disagreed, saying that anyone who thinks the bill is only about money and the budget would also think that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was working only for African-Americans to have access to restaurants.

Walker is not setting out just to fix a budget; he's setting out to break a union.

Tea Party activists supporting the bill brought a new dimension to the street demonstration. Wisconsin is ground zero, said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity. I think it is going to determine largely whether the pampered nature of these public employees is finally reined in.

Just goes to show ya, they will not stop at nothing to steal the money from honest residents Union Made and stolen by Republican.

A former associate of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was sentenced to two years in prison after he was convicted of embezzling more than $51,000 from donations intended to help veterans and their families.

These people need to get ride of Scott Walker awnd the Koch Brothers along with Karl rove, Paul Ryan, Grover Norquist and any other scum bag republican I missed.
