    Plus extremely low interest rates and companies make money using those low rates.

    Re: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survives recall effort, NBC News projects

    This issue was a huge waster of our time and money. Both politicians should be ashamed of their immaturity and their smear campaigns. Barrett especially with his "Scott Walker is a rock star" gimmicky attacks. All of this time and energy was wasted, over $50,000,000 spent, for nothing.

    Both politicians don't seem to give a damn about the rest of us. They seem far more content to waste money to keep themselves and their party members in power.

    The only good thing about this drama is its end.

    What exactly should Walker have done? He didn't initiate the recall!

    That means nothing. It was still a major waste of our time and money.

    Any of those three that you mentioned would be a better President than Obama or Romney. Much better.

    Your point has been that a person's union dues is not their money. Once it goes into a paycheck, it is theirs, and they can do what they please with it.

    You're just moving the goalposts because you can't win.

    You are grossly misinformed. And apparently not aware of one of the major reforms Walker enacted, and which is the one that most pisses off the Unions.

    This is how it was:

    1) Public employees were made a part of the Union upon employment.

    2) The law mandated that the government automatically deduct their Union dues form their paychecks, and to deliver that money to the Union.

    3) 95% of Union political contributions went to Democrats.

    Walker eliminated step #2. It is now voluntary.

    Then put the blame where it belongs, on a union temper tantrum

    It does appear that you need a reading comprehension course as that is what you want to believe. I have never stated that, only that the public unions are paid by the taxpayers. that is a fact that you want to ignore and my point has always been that the taxpayer who funds public employees should have a say in their pay and benefits directly and not through a paid Representative many of whom keep their jobs because of support from the various entities

    It is sad to me that a hell of a lot partisans view it like a supporting a sports team. Winning is all that matters. I'd venture to say with a choice between Romney and Obama winning doesn't matter all that much.

    I'm jazzed about Gary Johnson as the LP nominee. He makes a great deal of sense and he has a great track record. What a breath of fresh air.
