It does not require a government to officially validate, endorse, codify, sanctify and exalt the rule of dog eat dog.

The unionization of public employees serves as a bulwark against all employers' encroachments upon workers' economic security. If the government itself does not recognize democratic labor then there is no beacon to guide the rest of the employment economy and we might just as well giveover to the incessant demands for sacrifice made by rapacious capitalism.

This judge will get overturned and fast. The day of unions running roughshod over taxpayers has ended.

Public sectors unions are a Monopoly within a Monopoly,
and are therefore abhorent.

"Certain business leaders may consider "big government" or socialism more of an immediate threat to their interests than communism. Are they allowing themselves to be deluded by their own propaganda to the effect that organized labor in this country is in favor of big government or the nationalization of industry?

Nothing could be further from the truth. The main function of American trade unions is collective bargaining. It is impossible to bargain collectively with the government. Unions, as well as employers, would vastly prefer to have even Government regulation of labor-management relations reduced to a minimum consistent with the protection of the public welfare..." - George Meany, First President of the AFL-CIO

FDR considered Public Sector unionization, "unthinkable and intolerable."

Since: Nov 08

Very shocking, a judge bought and paid for by the democrats comes down with a decision on their side, hard to believe.

By whatever means necessary, that is how democrats like to get things done. They do not like it when they do not get their way.

When the Democrats resorted to game-playing, Gov. Walker prevailed. Now the Democrats are attempting to use the courts. Gov. Walker will still prevail.

The unions can try to stall the process in an attempt to grab as much as they can while they still can - but in the end, bottom line, it is over for them in Wisc.

Thank you Governor Walker and the Wisconsin Republicans.

"could force a dramatic rebooting of the entire legislative process."

Dramatic? Really? A re-vote is not a reboot of the entire legislative process.

This is like a football team who is down 3 touchdowns with 20 seconds to play...and they call a timeout. Futile and senseless.

Twenty bucks says the judge will lose her job.

Let the layoffs begin and then when this bill is passed do not recall those that were laid off. The unions are just plain greedy and don't care that the taxpayers are broke and cannot afford these luxuries for government workers any longer. They just don't want to give a little for the greater good and they have absolutely no business in government.

The "quotes" are pure out-of-context bs,from the usual right wing propaganda factories. This crap has been floating around the internetfor a month in an attempt to justify the union-busting thugs who have been trying to destroy collective bargaining since Reagan. They won't be happy until they have 90% of the US working at two bucks an hour with no benefits.

I'm guessing you don't have a clue what you are talking about, so you just make stuff up, like all good Republicans.

Yeah, " the unions are just plain greedy". The four hundred richest Americans now own more than the poorest 150 million Americans, and you Republicans just insisted on giving them another 500 billion dollar tax cut. Talk about gluttonous greed, you corporate shill Republithugs invented the word.

i have a better idea.How about impeaching or recalling the corporate thug Scott Walker, and replacing him with someone who represents people instead of corporate CEO-criminals.
