    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    The WI legislature should find those who fled in contempt, impeach them and eject them from the legislature. Quorum restored!

    This fleeing of legislators has happened before (was it TX?). Anyone know what the makeup of that legislature is today?

    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    wisconsin is becoming greece

    ohio, pennsylvania, new jersey, michigan, minnesota are becoming wisconsin

    it'll be in california by friday

    this was so beyond predictable it was actually inevitable

    could be seen coming by open eyed adults twenty years ago

    there was no avoiding it, no way out

    we're turning into greece

    this is shaping up as walker's, indeed, all america's AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS moment

    so much is known---the gub's cards, the carriers', the media's, the president's...

    how will america react, that's the only card worth concern

    madison is going down as---the TAXPAYERS vs the SEIU's and AFSCME's

    our public employees are overpaid and overpensioned---for times like these

    how will america react, which way will the broad sentiment of the roots lean---the only card worth watching

    History has proven...
    You can have great credibility for years N' lose it within one day.
    Like wise you can no credibility for years N' gain great credibility within one day.

    Rome isn't built in one day but all it takes is one moment in time to be a hero.

    Anyway what's important my friend is you enjoy the journey N' don't worry be happy.

    from the Prof

    madison is going down as---the TAXPAYERS vs the SEIU's and AFSCME's
    You seem to be under the false impression that members of unions are NOT taxpayers.
    You also seem to be under the impression that no other citizens are against the Governors efforts.
    Both are serious errors of fact.

    our public employees are overpaid and overpensioned---for times like these
    I stand ready to look at your objective and authoritative independent evidence on both of these charges.

    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    big picture, baby

    public pensions vs public underwriting of same

    thursday, february 17: State Pensions Scramble to Avoid Bankruptcy

    "multi trillion dollar shortfalls"

    early in the decade, "generous benefit increases and reduced contributions"

    but "suddenly the plan was unsustainable in the long term"

    read the link, every wonky word, heed warnings

    And somebody should tell those stupid protesters that, duh, the state cannot afford to pay all of you, so either you take a cut in your fat, union-inflated salaries or a whole bunch of you spoiled fools (who should be damned happy just to have a job in this economy) are going to join the ranks of the unemployed.

    I just hate this "I've got mine, I don't care what happens to them" attitude. It sucks.
    And why can the Republicans in the Senate just vote "no" for all the federal judges they've been holding up. Why couldn't they just vote "no" on the more than 140 bills they filibustered?

    The only people who are playing the "I've got mine games are the CEO's and Financial Industry tycoons who profited off this whole mess and were never forced to sacrifice anything as a result.

    Walker fudged up the numbers to create a crisis, anyway. This is nothing but a lie in an effort to take workers' rights away.

    I just think it's idiotic that people who probably make the same or less than government workers cheer on the further destruction of workers' rights. Screw yourselves, why don't you?

    Explain to me please why it is that these government employees deserve to have free health care, and free pensions? Why should I pay for their health, and retirement? It's supposed to be civil service, not a golden ticket.
