    Funny I thought it said the governor gives ultimatum ,not offers deal.

    Sarah Palin "ummm, wait a minute, the name sounds familiar" oh yeah wasn't she governor of Alaska till she quit?

For Walker—and the sections of the capitalist class for which he speaks—the central target is not simply the trade unions. His real aim is to wipe out any form or possibility of organized resistance by the working class to the dictates of the financial-corporate oligarchy and the capitalist state."

    "The response to this attack by the trade union organizations in Wisconsin and nationally—AFSCME, the NEA and the AFL-CIO—is cowardly, duplicitous and politically bankrupt. From the outset, they act as if there is no connection between Walker’s assault on the organizational interests of the union—such as his demand for the elimination of collective bargaining and the end of the automatic dues check off—and the attack on the wages"

    How can unions trade off benifits and wages on jobs by cheap foriegn labor?

    So Governors make demands now huh?
    I thought they had to pass laws before they could do that.

    Unions have got to go.
    Uh check your history
    In 1999 we America had a surplus not much but a surplus.
    In 2000 the Republicans took control in 2008 after the Republicans left America was 3 trillion dollars in debt.
    Just in case you don't know the differance between fantasy and reality.

    Surplus have money
    Debt owe money.

    I have a question, you say you want proper checks and balances so do I.

    Are these checks and balances for the upper class, middle class, or all American people?

    Wether they be liberal or conservitive, independant, union or non union top or bottom??

    Re: Wisconsin governor gives Democrats ultimatum

    Excerpted from “On the road with Gov. Jerry Brown (VIDEO): Flying solo on Southwest Airlines -- peanuts, no entourage” Posted By: Carla Marinucci, “Politics Blog,” San Francisco Chronicle, February 10 2011 at 12:35 PM
    Passengers did a double take on Southwest flight 896 from Sacramento to Burbank today, seeing Gov. Jerry Brown sitting among them -- and flying completely solo -- for his first official gubernatorial road trip to Los Angles Thursday.

    And the Democratic governor was very much in budget-cutting mode, sitting in an everyman's seat (he didn't want to pay the $16 extra for Southwest's "business select" seating), no press aides, no entourage, no security -- not even his chief adviser, wife Anne Gust Brown.
    Gov. Brown is leading by example these days.
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    It makes no difference whether it's to advance liberal or conservative agendas. I don't get your point.

    My lady, my point is simple the advacement of which you speak should be the American people all the American people.

    It is the politicians job wether president or governor to serve the American people, all the American people is it not?

    If he chooses just to serve just the elite WELL?
    If he just serve just the poor WELL
    If he just wants to popular with a certain group and not the other. WELL?

    Ha! You've just indicted 14 Democrats hiding out in Grayslake, Illinois. They are hiding out why? To support public-sector employees who make up, perhaps 5% of their constituents. At the expensive of the other 95%. What don't you get about that? How could you even type that last line with a straight face?

    Re: Wisconsin governor gives Democrats ultimatum

    I just LOVE how democrats are making it look like the evil corporations are out to destroy the middle class. HA!!! Its the freakin UNIONS that are part of the problem erroding the middle class by sucking up the TAX PAYERS money! The unions are hurting everyone!
    Hey I dont even know upper middle management that has such sweet deals as 100% paid health care.... HUGE pensions.... and a salary that is 2x what they should be getting!!!! PLUS...... PLUUUUUS teachers get 3 months off and its in the summer!!! And its not like good teachers are hard to find either. Heck I would say 2 out of 10 parents would make excellent teachers.

    DESTROY STATE UNIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CORPORATE GREED AND UNION GREED
    DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS
    DESTROYING THE BEST OF AMERICA ONE DAY AT A TIME

    This is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against ME! ~ Bender
