Harry's right!, His wife is a brainwashed idiot. Unions have no place in the public employee sector and are the main reason why most manufacturing jobs are no longer in the U.S.. The unions haven't been about the workers for 25 to 30 years. It's about the power and greed of the upper echelons of the unions. Richard Trumpka head of the AFL-CIO said it himself, "I'm not in it for the workers, I want to bring socialism to America". Teacher unions are destroying our educational system and unions like SEIU have a marxist agenda to destroy America. Support Governor Walker and stop these communist SOB's.

Nothing to add, Bird. Couldn't have said it better myself. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
