    a nutball or two sending an email is one thing

    but how long do you think the thousands of seiu's will be able to maintain decorum

    ie, restrain themselves

    good luck with em

    stay up, or we'll getcha on civility too
    please stop this nonsense. we've been over this type of thing in other threads. fringe members of both parties do crazy things. i mean, even lady gaga gets death threats. it's embarrassing when someone from either side tries to frame members of the other party as savages. please.

    fillibuster: obstruct deliberately by delaying

    By definition, what they did was a filibuster.

    I'll say again this had to be done. It's like tough love. It hurts initially but it is better in the long run. Just like the healthcare bill had to be passed despite what current polls said. It is for the greater good. The Democrats are just angry because it intrudes on "their" turf and will probably cause them to lose a hefty portion of campaign financing. The unions will either have to be dismantled completely or seriously restructured. I'm in favor of throwing it out and starting over entirely.

    No, what they did was run out on their obligations, a lot of bills were voted on while they were running. That just shows how childish liberals can be

    I don't know if they're cowards, they just risked a massive recall to carry out the agenda of a few billionaire GOP supporters...

    I'd say they're just dumb cheeseheads.

    so what does that make the Dems for failing to show up for work? I know that if I told my boss to get stuffed and left town, I'd last about 5 minutes before I was fired.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    They found a procedural loophole and took advantage of it. Both parties do that all the time.

    The fact is.....The democrats where notified on FEB. 20, 2011 about the vote that happened last night if the AWOL 14 continued to choose not to engage the democratic process they were elected to preform. They were simply "out maneuvered". Walker called their "bluff"....he was holding a full house, and the democrats who were drawing to an inside straight went ALL IN.

    It isn't so much childish as it is inflexible.

    You are diverting from the FACT that Democrats ran and shirked their responsibility to the electorate. They were not there to represent their constiuents on other legislation debated and voted upon.

    They threw a temper tantrum as did their followers many of whom are from out of state. they failed to represent their constituents on other votes while out of state.
