The Democratic/government-union days of rage in Madison, Wis., are a disgrace. Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan calls it Cairo coming to Madison.

I have a question for someone who acutally lives in Wisconsin and acutally knows what is going on with the protests:

I heard a Sen. Linsday Graham from South Carolina say that during the last election, Wisconsin voters approved a referendum whereby Wisonsin would become a "right-to-work" state. Is that true?

Thanks

Union busting is a disgrace, for a govenor to even attempt. If you think playing Will Horton was bad just wait until election time. The thought of a 10 per cent cut in pay was to much for the govenor to handle.

Your history classes must not be very good. Kentucky supported the Union worth it`s blood and treasure and many of the battles were fought on it`s soil. Wisconsin made a minimum contribution. f course the farmers there exploited the situation to the max and reaped the profits made form the blood of dead Americans killing each other. When you say we won the war, what you are really reminding us is you profited from the war.
Your comment speaks for it`s self. Your schools didn't even teach you which states supported the Union in War Between The States.Good reason in my opinion to chop the pay of the people responsible for your lack of knowledge.

People across the country are fed up with Public Employee Unions. The taxpayer is in revolt. It is not just the teachers it is all public employee unions in all the states and Wisconscin is just the beginning. California is facing the same problems except they are bigger.

http://cl.exct.net/...

Across the country people are finding that public officials have ripped off the taxpayers and frequently these public officials have been sponsored by the public employee unions. People are tired of it and are going to go after the power behind it the public employee unions. It is bigger than just a teachers strike in Wisconsin. It a national move to take the power from those who have abused and misused the power entrusted to them by the public and put the public back in control. It is going to happen. People are fed up.These public employees work for the taxpayer not the politicians who they installed.
Governor Walker should stand firm and the taxpayers should support him . In fact he sounds like a good candidate for president in 2012.

Really? Higher standards? You are joking...right?
Doctors writing fake notes, hateful signs, Democratic politicians hiding, a state in financial trouble, teachers screaming and yelling like animals and spitting in the face of taxpayers because they are being asked to share the burden. And then while keeping a straight face...proclaim this is "for the kids".


Brace yourself union parasites... cause you are not going to be winning this war.

Sorry to explode this particular myth, Outsider, but I'm with the teaching assistants union at the university here, been here since day one of the protest last Sunday, and I'm proud to tell you that WE are behind this protest, WE set up a food bank (since local businesses have been donating food like crazy!), trash clean up both inside and outside the building, a lost and found, information tables throughout the capitol. I'm so proud of my fellow students and how well they're running this. We had been planning this since early last december since we knew what was coming. Did I EVER ONCE here of Organizing for America (this is actually the first time I've ever been to that website)? Did we EVER ONCE get approached by the DNC? Nope. Sorry, but we Wisconsin unions are doing this all on our own, from Valentines day when we mobilized 2,000 people from the University community, TAs, undergrads, and their families, to the following days when union members from all over Madison and the rest of the state joined us. Give us credit where credit is due. We don't need "Americans for Progress" to bus us in.

Yes everyone in in revolt after the Bush years. The rich man tax cuts have ruined this country. Federal funding is no longer there because the damnn republicans don't want their big fat rich peolple to pay their share of taxes. They want the middle class to pay and are pitting people against each other while they suck up the overflow in their big fat pockets. I just feels sorry for idiots like you who are fooled by them.

It does not suprise me that you would be from a union and have students working this. None of you have had to work for anyting in life except how to get it from mom and dad or the taxpayers. Try and work a real job and support a family. Unions are a thing of the past. When I have been unhappy with my job or pay I have searched out a better one or in fact now own my own business so I don't have to supple somene elses tit to make my way in life.

So...you're faulting me for getting an education? Hey Wisconsin parents, don't send your kids to UW-Madison or they'll become free loading egg-heads!! Yes, my parents helped me out with education, and I will love them until the day I die for it. What parent doesn't want to see their child educated and successful? But I've also worked hard to get where I am. Peddle your anti-intellectual hatred elsewhere. And the word is suckle, by the way.

Lawmakers should look at cutting the umbilical cord from welfare recipients before cutting into pensions that workers have based their entire careers on.

Fair is fair. Social Security isn't free... I've paid nearly $80,000.00 into it in my career so far... more than I will extract unless I live to an unlikely age. Same with Medicare... I've paid nearly a $75,000.00 into that... again, more than I will ever extract, and in both cases allowing my government to leverage and invest those monies.

So now my pension may be in jeopardy? My Social Security may be gone?

What the hell are you people thinking and doing in Washington?

We all thought welfare and food stamps and free entitlements was supposed to be a helping hand up... instead, it's become the cycle of despair for the poor, and beginning of a horrible inequity for those people who instead worked for a living and supported these people all their lives.

Oh, I guess legislators hiding out in another state (Texas Democrats hid out in Oklahoma in 2001), abdicating their electoral responsibilities, also seems, to the Democrats, to be a rational tactic to thwart the democratic process.
The Lord God himself is choking on the stench of hypocrisy in heaven, and he don't like it! I've said it time and again. Liberals are all about tolerance, compassion, acceptance, and CIVILITY! SO LONG AS IT'S SOMEONE DOING IT! They are also big on democracy, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights, WHEN THEY SUIT THEM! Let the shoe be on the other foot though, and it's a whole other game! None of those things mattered when they were shoving boondoggles like stimulus, omnibus, Whateverbus, and nobamacare down our throats! Where was their selective moral outrage and concern for civility when the Tea Party, Palin, and talk radio were unjustly accused of inciting the Tucson killer to act? They didn't have one word of chastisement for the CONFIRMED PROGRESSIVE who treatened the life of a Tea Party member at a local meeting, in front of a room full of witnesses! The liberals and their unholy alliance with organized labor have got to go! The sooner the better, and good riddance!

They are also big on taking money other people have worked and sweated for and handing it out to those who never did a lick of productive work in their lives. I also agree with everything you said.
