    Exactly!! We shall see how loyal workers are to the unions when they actually have to write that check. Deducations have a way of being ignored but not checks written.

    Well, I think mandatory unions are completely immoral. I don't know what voting conservative has to do with being a good person, but

    Of course we know unions came into being because the industrialists treated the workers fairly, gave them great benefits, but the unions simply wanted more, Right?

    Neither do I but believe me the thugs that attacked me and my family would do the same thing with another union member that wasn't supporting a union action. The intimidation factor alone is enough to scare people into doing whatever their leadership wants.

    A state worker with ties to Sen. Randy Hopper is being paid $11,000 more annually than her predecessor in a position at the department of regulation and licensing.

    State officials said the woman, 26, was hired to a limited term, communications specialist position last month, with a salary equivalent to $42, 328 annually.

    State officials Friday said the woman’s predecessor left the position in January, with a salary equivalent to $31,200 annually. No explanation was given for the new hire’s higher pay.

    Sources told WKOW27 News the state employee was the same person referred to by Hopper’s estranged wife when she publicly stated her husband started an affair in Madison. Hopper (R-Fond du Lac) and his estranged wife are in the midst of a divorce action.

    During an interview with WKOW27 News, Hopper declined to comment on his relationship with the woman.

    But Hopper told WKOW27 News he played no role in the woman’s hiring.

    WKOW27 News is not identifying the state employee at this time because her hiring or employment is not the subject of a formal inquiry or complaint, and she is not named in civil actions.

    The woman has yet return any phone calls from WKOW27 News seeking comment. >

    Guess which political party Sen. Randy Hopper belongs to ?
    Let's see, I bet Faux News reports him with a (D) by his name! LOL!

    Wisconsin Union Anti-Walker Protest: Stunning Account of Violent Mob Rule at Ironic Surrealism v3.0
    Last night one Senator told me they had been told to clear the Capitol because the new groups coming in overnight are filled with with people “who aren’t afraid to be arrested” and the Administration could not guarantee the safety of the legislators and their staffs. In our Capitol.

    On Thursday, legislators were advised to return to their offices and lock their doors. Mobs roamed the halls, banging on the glass of the doors, pounding on the walls. No one could move in the halls or enter or leave the building. The glass of the Supreme Court’s entrance was broken. Legislators were genuinely afraid. Our elected representatives were afraid. In our Capitol.

    A young female reporter trying to get into the Senate chamber struggled to get through the crowd. She arrived disheveled and upset because she had been roughed up as she tried to get through “Bitch-slapped” the mob told her. A senior senator was spat on. A senator and his female staffer struggled to get into the capitol. He was worried about his staffer because the crowd was grabbing at her and pushing her. University Police were two arms lengths away and did nothing. They, of course, are union.
    thugs.

    You are seeing why it is a waste of time to provide PB with evidence on any issue, he simply ignores anything that refutes his own personal opinions.

    Gee, I didn't think I would have to remind you, since you keep insisting that it didn't work - so I guess all the economists that say it did are wrong - because you couldn't be wrong!

    You need to take the approach of Nigel Gault instead of holding on to your opinion which has been proven to be wrong over and over!

    It appears you are the one that needs to grow up!

    “It was worth doing — it’s made a difference,” said Nigel Gault, chief economist at IHS Global Insight, a financial forecasting and analysis group based in Lexington, Mass.
    Mr. Gault added: “I don’t think it’s right to look at it by saying, ‘Well, the economy is still doing extremely badly, therefore the stimulus didn’t work.’ I’m afraid the answer is, yes, we did badly but we would have done even worse without the stimulus.”

    Private Forecasters Support Claim That Stimulus Worked



    In a new paper, the economists argue that without the Wall Street bailout, the bank stress tests, the emergency lending and asset purchases by the Federal Reserve, and the Obama administration’s fiscal stimulus program, the nation’s gross domestic product would be about 6.5 percent lower this year.In addition, there would be about 8.5 million fewer jobs, on top of the more than 8 million already lost; and the economy would be experiencing deflation, instead of low inflation...
