    What's the record of unions intimidating employees into organizing? Is Wisconsin a right to work state? Can a public employee choose not to join a union? Can a union member choose to not allow his union dues to be laundered and given to a political campaign? While we're talking about all this freedom and ****.

    "The meeting leader said, 'I am not telling you how to vote, but if the Democrats win, this bill will pass and you won't have a vote on whether you want a union,'" said a Wal-Mart customer-service supervisor from Missouri. "I am not a stupid person. They were telling me how to vote," she said.
    Wal-Mart may be walking a fine legal line by holding meetings with its store department heads that link politics with a strong antiunion message.

    There are many documentaries, articles and websites that deal with this. That's one of the reasons so many people protested having a Wal-Mart in Chicago.

    Taxpayers don't fund tax breaks as tax breaks aren't an expense to the govt. It isn't the government's money first.

    We've been through this before. You are referring to a nationwide problem not one unique to Wisconsin. How do you suppose less funding will improve it? How does giving that funding in corporate tax breaks improve those minority population's reading and math scores?

    Nobody has crushed me with facts. Nobody has provided me with the apparent 30 year record of unions continuously preventing meaningful education form. I asked someone for a list of those reforms and explanations for why we should consider them 'worthwhile' since that's a subjective word. I have pointed out over and over again how many of the very things teachers unions fight for also benefit students.

    I have given you so many facts - but you call them talking points and liberal rhetoric because you don't like them. Every single fact that I have given has been called that. In fact, now that I'm writing this...why am I even arguing anymore. Why am I arguing with people who won't accept facts. Goodbye.

    How many gazillions have we continually pumped into the nation's school systems and things don't get any better? Obviously, a lack of funding isn't the problem.

    For the second time in this thread, corporate tax breaks have nothing to do with any of this. You have such a hard-on for private enterprise, that you fail to see the reality.
