    I'd just add "anti-public sector union." I don't care about private enterprise. Those demands are met from the perspective of "can we afford it?" Public sector union demands are met from the perspective of "**** the taxpayers, give it to 'em."

    You'd just suggest how it should be done if one was going to do it....

    You know...kind of like a Don who would never tell someone to Whack a Guy, but might suggest that said person may need to stumble into some bad luck.

    I'd find the type of mentality, even though I don't buy that you'd have the gall to do such in reality instead of a forum, coming from a person that works for an elected official a bit disturbing...but perhaps speaks to the mindset of said elected official rubbing off on you. I wonder if he's saying similar things to his contacts in the near by state......

    The success of Walker in Wisconsin:

    I don't see it as indoctrination. I don't like the way Walker busted the unions, but this week the fiscal numbers came out, and Wisconsin had a surplus, and I believe that was all the difference. Now, we wait and see if there is a price to pay in the way of jobs, education, etc. I will wait and see what happens, but in this election, Walker got his message across better than his opponent did. The money had a lot to do with it, but just as much, Barrett did not tell anyone what his plan was, because he didn't really have one, and that, along with the budget numbers which show a surplus, is what killed him.

    I don't think this just hurts democrat workers any more than I thought women's rights only effected democrat women, so I don't really understand you here.

    Nor do I think union workers are the only kind of workers. But, the attack is on workers, and what happens with unions will have a trickle down effect. Balance between the work force and the employers is important, and it is bad when either side gains too much leverage. This could have been done in a way that sought balance, but instead it was done to push one side of the equation down, the worker. This leads to an imbalance and one that will effect the worker most of all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I find your posts disturbing. I find your gross dishonesty disturbing. I find your ideology disturbing.
