    while obama still searches for those comfy shoes...

    FLASHBACK: Obama campaigned to walk picket line as president if collective bargaining rights threatened - Yahoo! News

    mainstream michael moore matriculates to madison

    Moore: Protesters have 'aroused a sleeping giant'

    the millionaire movie maker, earlier this week, on the topic of rich people---that's not their money, it's ours, it's a national resource

    RealClearPolitics - Video - Moore On Wealthy People's Money: "That's Not Theirs, That's A National Resource, It's Ours"

    obama won't touch it, but mainstream michael embraces like a mother

    very revealing

    Moore's an idiot. Obama...well...anyone actually surprised that he's not keeping his promise to "walk the picket lines"?

    Ah, hostage-taking. Republicans are just beaming their principles out for all to see.

    This isn't about the budget. The unions had already agreed to cuts. This is about busting the unions, so that a teacher can be fired without cause, without a hearing, by an administrator, who just might not happen to like that particular teacher, or that teacher's political viewpoints.

    In every era in our history, it has always been about finding a new boogeyman to demonize. This time it is the Irish the Chinese Italians African Americans Union workers.

    Let's hear some more Yankee Doodle Dandy bullcrap!!

    This is about ratcheting back the Wisconsin Teacher's Union so that they have still more bargainning rights than Federal workers. On DP, this is about every person on a public pension cryin' like little babies, denying truths, and being perfectly willing to **** the taxpayers to sustain their own selfish, bloated pensions and benefits. Well, Walker's sayin', "**** you back." I sure hope he prevails.

    Which is BS. The unions already agreed to the cuts Walker demanded. This is about dismantling them.

    Now, I dislike unions probably as much as you do. But what I would not do if I were a governor, is use dishonest tactics, lie to my constituents, and use a scorched earth policy to get rid of them, which is exactly what Walker is doing.

    No good choices here for the unions or the politicians who work for them.
    This before Nancy Pelosi showed up with staff in hand and somberly stated, "let my people go."

    Did you even read what I wrote? He's not dismantling unions. He's asking that they have their bargaining rights changed...and with those changes, they will still have greater bargaining power than every single Federal worker in the USA. That's not dismantling. That's curtailing. That's putting a little more power back into the hands of the taxpayers. Right now, it's whacked.

    As to Governor Walker's tactics, I expect a compromise. My common sense tells me it's being discussed as we speak.

    I agree with your position, but just as an FYI, the bill resticting some collective bargaining rights of WI's federal employees will allow WI's public sector union employees to have more collective bargaining rights then most federal employee unions - not all. At least according to most of the info i've read or seen.
