    LOL, whatever.

    They'll build statues of this guy one day.

    The chicken is finally coming home to roost for you lazy, hide-behind-the-union misfits, and it's frankly quite fun to watch.

    Jealous? Hardly. All I am saying is that part of the problem is that, and I am positive that you can look around your shop and find these, people that slack, people that don't "put in an honest days work, for an honest days pay" but yet they are protected just like you. They make the same as you, and sponge off of your work ethic. Doesn't it bother you in the slightest that they and you are the same in the eyes of your employer?

    I can't and refuse to support spoiled brats. That's what the protesters are. Nothing more. In the real world we don't get to tell our bosses the hours we want to work. We don't get to name our price. We don't get to dictate our vacation time, sick time, or many other things. Let's not forget the GM workers in the crack house or drinking on break...........

    Randel, people don't have to be jealous to not wholeheartedly support unions. Honest. They don't. If you are fortunate enough to be in a workplace that isn't abused by virtue of union rules, then you are fortunate. And no wonder you have the views you do. But for every workplace that isn't adversely colored because of union rules, there is another workplace that is.

    "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As the result of the War, corporations have been enthroned. ... An era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands... and the Republic is destroyed."

    – Abraham Lincoln, 1864

    You are aware that NOT all of Wisconsin is in that capital? There are other people in that state that do not want this sort of thing to go on.... In other words, they are protesting the protestors.

    and it would be fair to add that the president PUNTED this central relationship between every american and his or her internal revenue service for two years, until his lame duck quacked it a couple days before new years eve
    Huh?

    The winner will not be determined until 2012. Winning one battle is not winning the war.
