    Hypothetically, they might want to unionize to prevent the governor from demonizing them and trying to balance the budget on the backs of gradeschool teachers instead of addressing the real issues, such as irresponsible spending and insufficient revenue.

    Addressing Public sector Unions, IS addressing irresponsible spending.

    So says the governor. The people who are teaching the children and literally putting out fires might have a different opinion.

    Tim-


    You would be correct sir. Bypassing the curse filter is a definite no-no.

    However, I did not bypass the curse filter. I wrote what I wrote and let the curse filter do it's job. There is the result.

    I was told by the moderating staff to just write what I write and let the curse filter decide what is considered to be profanity. You can't go wrong that way. If the computer doesn't recognize a word as profane how could the powers that be expect an everyday poster to? I mean, if I write "mother****er" it seems to work quite well doesn't it? I was kind of surprised the filter allowed it too. But no attempts to bypass were made.

    What WILL get you into trouble, as explained to me, is to attempt to get around the filter and getting unacceptable profanity posted here. Which I made no attempt to do, whatsoever. I would never do that. I gave my word.

    If the mods found that word to be profane they surely must have a way to inform the curse filter, no? And if I offended anyone, I do so apologize.

    Perhaps the powers that be do not consider cocksucking to be that profane?

    Yes, those about to lose their gravy train will always whine.

    All Wisconsinites hate the ****ing Illinois gives us just to drive on their roads. And to add insult to injury, the toll doubles for the last mile or so before you actually cross the border going home.
    I'm on the Illinois side, and I'm with you. I like shopping and doing a lot of entertainment in WI, but they have the tollway crapping things up. If you just exit right before the toll and hop on right after the toll, you can easily get around it with out adding hardly any time. I've begun doing that.

    And how did that work out? Seems the union was worthless after all, no? And why should people that have no desire to be in a union, be required to pay dues and support them? Seems to me that Walker actually made it about personal choice, again.

    But it really isnt a matter of opinion, it should be something that can be proven one way or another. Public pensions and health care costs are a problem in every state. The answer is to either reduce benefits to state employees, reduce the number of state employees, or raise taxes. Or some combination of the three. A governor is not immune from the difficulty of raising taxes, which is why so many are addressing the issue of pensions.

    If Walker is recalled and a democrat elected, he will face the same problems as Walker did. The gravy train is coming to an end.

    Larry Craig certainly believes that cocksucking is not profane.
