    War has come to Wisconsin, folks.

    This proves that unions are made up of nothing but thugs. M&I executives gave the legal maximum of approximately $182,000 to Gov. Walker's campaign and are now to be driven into FDIC receivorship by withdrawal of union pension funds. If that happens, will cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars. They care about no one except themselves.

    Unions and their membership will stop at nothing to get exactly what they want. Is there any stopping them? I don't know. But I now know that neither union officials nor their membership can be trusted to do anything that doesn't benefit themselves. They are selfish disloyal Americans who will do anything to get what they want -- including bleeding taxpayers dry.

    I guess my question is this...how far are the Unions willing to go?

    Civil War?

    I heard today that they are calling for union members to protest tomorrow dressed in black...Isn't that great? Screw Japan, screw anything else other than their small worlds....What a bunch of crap!

    That's awful. I hope they realize that might hurt a LOT of people and will not turn public favor to their side.

    If what you said were true, the top 0.27% would be getting over 70% of the tax benefit... it's just ridiculous.

    But thanks for the laugh.


    Laugh away, the millionaires really appreciate your good humor about their annual windfall at your expense.

    Question, was that mean or median?

    Why is it that liberals worry so much about what other people earn? Look Cat, if you think that the tax rates are too low, then you can send more money in. They'll take it, I promise.
