    this will be done and over long before any recall.

    Are the people who voted for them recalling them for this "cowardice"?

    I'm personally not a big fan of abuse of rules in legislatures.

    But I doubt their constituents consider them cowards.

    Re: Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law

    the reason madison is not the red hot issue she was, in my opinion, is cuz the collective bargaining brouhaha has kinda been lost in the WAVE of austerity that, inevitable, is sweeping the states and cities

    the ram's the most recent, as predicted, in chicago

    the day he was sworn in as the next daley the ram announced huge cuts

    cuomo led the way, he said it (hard and mean), he meant it, he's doing it---with no new taxes

    moonbeam mumbled his way to multi tens of bils, surrendering in the process his special election for what utopians like moonbeam prefer to call revenues

    in ohio kasich outdid walker

    in michigan governor snyder signed into effect what everyone calls budgetary "martial law," and bing and bobb, dem appointed outside managers, are slashing and restructuring in detroit---unilaterally (rachel maddow was all over it for a week)

    there's chubby chris christie in trenton bullying the blues into submission

    there's extremely democrat maryland, same trend

    the massachusetts state assembly voted, 111 to 42, to cut collective bargaining for cops, teachers and other muni's

    springfield, after raising income taxes two thirds, is now following this overwhelming anti-union suit

    folks like you and me are just so insignificant in the face of forces so, as cole porter might sing, irresistable

    the point is---madison may go this way, may go that, but in the big picture...

    there's really nothing anyone can do about it, it's physics

    one thing no one i've heard has commented---this massive slashing of public payroll is gonna be a huge DOWNER on those monthly unemployment figures everyone always looks at

    i speak, here, as a longtime california public school teacher (math)---i've never seen layoffs so deep and wide, they're just beginning, my industry is gonna be decimated

    Save your fingers the effort Tessaesque, trying to discuss rights with Justabubba and some of these others is a waste of time. They believe that a Right is anything they think their favored group should have.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law

    Are libs really going to bust open the Crystal every time a lib lower court judge tries to stomp the rights of the people? This is headed to the SCOTUS and until then I'd keep it dry.

    Tim-
    Probably the same thing she would say about the GOP filibustering and basically shutting down Washington, holding the nation hostage, while they sat on their hands and pouted thus bringing the business of governing to a screeching halt, because of that muslim, socialist, <fill-in-your-favorite Obama slur here> president from Kenya has made them all look like idiots.

    Or... maybe not.
