    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?
    The ELITE!?!?!? Who the hell is paying these state unions? Companies? NOOOO! I am! You are!! They are sucking up OUR money! Taxes pay for these scammers.
    And BTW..... the State of Wisconsin like many other States are beyond broke and State Unions are part of the reason.

    How would YOU balance the budget hmmmmmm?????

    Stakes are being raised:

    Missing Senators To Be Fined $100 A Day
    Senate Also Authorizes Law Enforcement To Help Get Senators Back

    MADISOn, Wis. -- Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate are taking new steps to bring the 14 missing Senate Democrats back to Wisconsin.

    They passed a resolution Wednesday morning on a unanimous vote that would charge each senator $100 each day for every day the lawmaker was missing. They would also make the 14 missing senators reimburse the Senate for any cost incurred to bring them back.

    The resolution also authorizes the help of any law enforcement officer in the state to bring them back to the Capitol.

    The resolution also allows the majority leaders to cease paying expense reimbursements and parking privileges for all staff for the next two years.

    The senators left Wisconsin and went to Illinois on Feb. 17 to avoid voting on a budget repair bill that would eliminate collective bargaining for public workers in Wisconsin.
    Governor Walker sure has a pair, I'll give 'im that. Wow.

    I suspect there are plenty of Americans more than willing to pitch in to help with these fines. I know I will.

    Oh, there'll be no problem there. If nothing else, the unions'll pick 'em up.

    What do I care about Democrats?
    I am an independant now.
    I care not for parties anymore Democrat , Republican, Independant which ever is best for the American people?

    I do dabble in odds though, Bush 1 "read my lips no new taxes" after that he raised taxes
    Bush 2 and McCain who was running for president August 2008 "the American economy s strong" September 2008 American companies started asking for bailouts.
    Here's an oldie but a goodie Bush 2 "there is WMDS in Iraq."

    BY your post I say you are either a backer of Huckabee or Ron Paul, right?
    And the deal is right or wrong they have your support,
    So much for bipartisinship.
    I can critisise Democrats cause in my opinion they are too much party affiliated but are the Republicans any better?
    The only differance is the Democrats are too wishy washy and the Republicans are too power hungry.

    I have a feeling there would be some legal issue with that. Shrug. I'm not certain, but it would surprise me if there weren't.

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"

    Liberals have a way of pretending their fantasy world is real as they ax and spend us into the toilet then blame conservatives for their ignorance.\

    Unions have got to go.
    Really its none of your business. When you sign on to a job you're allowed to negotiate what you're worth. Stop following the lead of RightWing talk radio and think for yourselves, for once.
