How does this article end?

"Tim Wersland, 44, an iron worker from Stoughton, Wis., shook his head as the rally broke up.

"I can't believe these people are for real," he said of the tea partyers. "(Palin) is ill-informed. She's biased."

The shock I tell you...Mrs Palin is biased?....Say it isn't so!

We are all blessed that unbiased folks like Mr J. Jackson, The "Fleeting Democrats", SEIU, AFSME, and the Union Corporations are around to make it "fair".

Also, it is refreshing that the article featured the views of Tea Party supporters in the article, since the point of the article appeared to be Mrs Palin's attendance.

Gee, I wonder where the SPPP stands on the Tea Party?

The law does not effectively reduce employer compensation by 8%, It increased their contribution % by 8 % to a total of 12%. Most employees in the Private sector pay a minimum of 25% of the cost of their health care and many pay more. Reporting such information incorrectly is only adding to the problem. People need to understand that in our tough economy some things will have to fundamentally change in order for the downward slide of the economy to stop and a renewed growth to begin. A renewed growth that is sustainable is the only way out of the current mess we are in.

Why is there no reporting on the "only one person was arrested, for Disorderly Conduct Saturday?"

Dear, Ms. Palin.

Regarding you comments that Governor Walker is just saving public sector jobs by his union busting bill.

#1. I loath people who piss on me and call it a sweet
rain.
#2. I have nothing but contempt for people who piss
on me, call it a sweet rain and then insist that
I agree with them.

Political fortunes change as does the balance of power in government. All Governor Walker has succeeded in accomplishing is estranging public sector employee's from their employer. It will not work out well for either side.

Why don't you people get off the Palin crap, nobody cares. Why not dig into Obama's past a little bit, there's probably a story we all would like to here there. The press is so f'ed now days. Troups of reporters crammed Alaska in an effort to dig up crap on Palin yet left Biden entirely alone. There's isn't a day that goes by where the left nut jobs in the media don't have a negative story on Palin or Bachman, it's getting f'en.

Aside of your crass and vulger imagery you're empty-headed. Governor Walker united the majority of Wisconsin voters. Last week, those same voters reelected Justice Prosser. Elections have consequences and your side lost. Suffer BH!

Palin's right of course. government unions = government corruption.
we can no longer afford government corruption. therefore we can no longer afford the democrat party, the party of corruption. it's that simple.

Palin will support any right wing extremist who will get her back into the spot light. What she has to say about any political issue is not news worthy or interesting. She continues to echo the same old free market drum beat that got us into the economic mess we are climbing out of still today.

Remember folks, it was not big government and over regulation that drove us into the great recession, it was free market trading and lax oversight. Unions, government or otherwise, had nothing to do with the plethora of bad decisions that drove our housing market over the brink. It was private bankers and free market capitalists who took the world into recession. It was the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 that have driven our Federal budget to the huge deficits we have today.

We need to raise taxes and start paying for our wars. A "patriot" who insists that paying taxes is a bad thing is no patriot in my country! Time for that "adult moment" being blathered about on talk radio. Time to stop the whining and get serious about cutting the deficit, paying our way, and maintaining the quality of life we have earned for all of our citizens. Not just the wealthy!

You pay for what you get. Got it!

All so funny.
You subject public employees to a withering fire of denouncements and villification and then you say you are trying to save their jobs.
You jump up and yell to a people to "go to hell", draw a line in the sand, and then accuse THEM of trying to divide the American people.
There has been such a sustained campaign by the right to "spin" facts that I don't believe they even know what the truth is. Blacks become racists. The poor becomes practitioners of class warfare. The sick and unemployed are painted as greatly benefitting from social largesse. Robbing workers of their ability to represent themselves is pitched as saving their jobs.
And things have gone mad today
and good's bad today
and black's white today
and day's night today...
Curiouser and curioser.

Walker did nothing that isn't being done by a lot of other states. The difference is the Wisconsin teachers would rather eat their own, have massive layoffs, then make concessions. There are now 1500 Wisconsin families that haven't been severely affected by the greedy actions of their fellow tenured teachers and the teachers union. Like the retiring general counsel said....It's not about the children...it's about the dues.

Your education was probably in Alaska with Sarah Palin as your classmate. Here??? The word is hear.
Look everyone- Do you want to make $7 an hour like Walker and Palin would like so the rich can get richer at your expense, or should we all be pulling for each other to get fair wages.

Ohh Bob
What do you make at your job?
Greedy teachers? Teachers make a living and nothing more. Eat their own? You are pathetic.
But, you'll be the first to complain when you don't like your school.

She is exactly right on,people are tired of these greedy unions getting everything handed to them on a silver platter while the rest of us are scraping to get by.

The let leaning politicians who are in bed with these people are on their way out as well.

GOOD RIDDENCE!!
