    Nope, have no interest in a one on one with you as you haven't proven yourself worthy of my time.

    Catch up, we were up to $3 trillion in 2008.

    Its bargain decade on wars, now were going in on a no fly zone over Libya…remember how the last how the last one panned out?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

The issue is taxpayer money going directly to the unions and since the union employee doesn't see the money that is exactly what happens. Walker's bill will require the union employees to write a check for their union dues, good for him.
    trust me my friend, you are making yourself look foolish...the dues that are being sent to the union are being sent on BEHALF OF AN EMPLOYEE(S), OUT OF WAGES THAT HAVE BEEN EARNED, WAGES WHICH THE TAXPAYERS HAVE NO CLAIM OVER...just because the government sends the union a check to cover these dues, doesnt mean the money has reverted back to the government/taxpayers, it still is being paid out of wages THAT HAVE BEEN EARNED, AND AGAIN, THAT THE GOVERNMENT/TAXPAYERS HAVE NO CLAIM OVER. seriously, what is so hard here for you to understand? do you go to your local deli, get a pound of roast beef, pay the owner the cost of that roast beef, then turn around and tell him that since the money is coming from you, that he can't spend it how he pleases? do you get to put restrictions on how he spends it? i don't think so.

    Don't give me that neo-Socialist, Columbia glitteratti, Clinton reject. Who the hell care what this piece of trash thinks? The cost of the war's can be argued to be closing in on a trillion maybe, but not $3 trillion. This guy is a hack with a capital H

    No one said he wasn't smart. The best con men usually are.
