    There are no winners--just taking money from one institution and dumping it into another.

    What is clear is that the union leaders failed their members miserably. Politics is a game where the only meaningful goal is to WIN. If the union leaders had any muscle, they would've played dirty, i. e. starting a fund for women who had an affair w/Walker to come forward in exchange for a reward. It's well known that most all pols have extra-marital affairs yet the unions failed to exploit that to their advantage.
    And your type of libertarian never gets elected because......because people are just mean. Carry on with the two party bashing festival.

    How out of touch can you be? So you realize people have to work until into their 60's and 70's and even longer, and you retired at 45. Public unions are a parasite which allows members to retire at 45.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What many miss here, you canbe a corporate slave, where what you produce goes to other countries. There is no need for American slaves to be consumers, just be docile slaves like the "Company Store." And exist in the greatest land of resources.
    corporate America isnt striping away anything of the sort.
    your argument is 70 years old. times have changed. Corporate America realizes that they will treat people right or their product wont sell, or in most cases people wont work for them. this isnt the 1930's.

    What corporate America needs is for government, and union thugs to get out of the way and let them run their business, let others start new busineses and put the country back to work.

    Union IS government today, they are lockstep with the democratic party and getting away with it.

    wake up

    Hooray for Wisconsin using the force of law to negate a lawfull contract! I sure am glad the legislature has the power to renig on binding agreements.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Yeah, cause contracts negotiated on bad faith should be upheld, right?

    How is it that the contracts in question were negotiated in bad faith, and if they're legal contracts to begin with why should that make a difference?

    Some contracts agreed upon in bad faith or under duress can be nullified.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
