    Re: Senate Moves To Bring 'Wisconsin 14' Back, Possibly By Force

    Senate orders arrest of missing Democrats
    James Troupis, a private attorney hired by Fitzgerald, contended Thursday that the move is legal. He cited a portion of the state Constitution that provides that each house "may compel the attendance of absent members."

    Its about time. Its really sad the democrats think you can run away from a "problem" and it will get solved within your absence.
    Ecclesiastes 10:2: "A wise man's heart directs him toward the right, but a foolish man's heart directs him toward the left."
    Government is not the solution to the problem. Government IS the problem.-Ronald Reagan

    Hehehe. It seems like Republicans are increasingly resorting to force to impose their agenda. Gee, I hope they don't start shutting down the Internet and issuing rambling Gaddafi-esque speeches. The GOP is circling the drain, and they think they're in a position of advantage. I love it when despots misunderstand the calculus of power. The Tea Party is the GOP's "anger" stage of grief. Can't wait to see Depression and Bargaining.

    How are they holding democracy "hostage" by acting out for the people?

    By refusing to do their jobs. They are not just affecting the people on thier side, they are affecting every single person in that state. And what is going to happen if the budget isn't passed? ...you do the math.

    Because Rosa Parks should have just moved to the back of the bus as was told to because she was making everyone else late.

    Because children should have just kept working at low hourly wages 12-14 hours a day because they were affecting production.

    Because slaves should have just continued doing their jobs since not doing so would affect the society because white men would actually have to pay them for work.

    Because women should have just accepted their position as second rate citizens in society because that's always been what was expected of them instead pursuing equal rights.

    OK, Drama Queen. Slow down.

    Union workers are virtually impossible to terminate. These folks are getting packages most people can't imagine, despite the fact they are compensated solely through taxpayer dollars.

    Why can't they negotiate for themselves like the other 88 percent of American workers do? Why should they be able to unionize against the taxpayers who pay them?

    Another union member weighs in with hystrionics. Bravo.
