    Breaking the Law? You mean like going awol while the UNIONS pay for your out of state luxury accommodations for the past 3 weeks? That's not unethical in the least, but forcing an up or down vote is an unheard act of contempt. Just a little hypocritical..no? Again...funny as hell, most enjoyable....now that the unions have been hit across the head with a 2x4 in getting their attention perhaps THE PEOPLES representatives will take their heads out of the union leaderships asses long enough to do the job they were elected to do...represent the Peoples Best Interests instead of siding with special interest groups.

    Sure, the unions love to tout any reforms that will increase the membership of the union, like small class sizes. It's the OTHER 90% of reforms that they block.

    I'm sure that most teachers go into it to help children. That has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that teachers' unions are cancers on society that protect bad teachers, inhibit education reforms, and overcharge taxpayers. Society would be far better off without them.

    Are you trying to say that every single person in WI is in a union?

    them?

    what, the 3% of the population that belongs to a public union.

    maybe you come visit the state before pretending to know what the residents think?

    Don't be so shy. When a libertarian comes out of the closet, its always worth a listen.

    No, they aren't. Read FDR's take on Public Sector Unions.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    One thing I always thought conservatives could understand was that people don't like it when you take away their rights - aren't they always whining about gun rights and the like - they're done.
    314 Police and Fire Unions in Wisconsin........

    .......out of the 314.....4 of them endorsed Walker.

    Please cease and desist from your liberal talking points......
