    You mean after we went to war to remove the Fascists there that dismantled their unions?

    What's that supposed to mean? Threats and intimidation are all you thugs have at the end of the day.

    Only if other states are also willing to shortchange education in favor of more tax cuts for corporations.

    Obviously the problems we have in this country with education is NOT the amount of money we throw at it. But it is amusing to hear you sniveling little class warriors whine.

    it wasn't teachers, policeman and firefighters that caused the states' money problems, it was the recession caused by crooks on Wall Street, a housing bubble that burst and giving away to much revenue in tax cuts for the wealthy.

    Same old crap for everything with you libs isn't it? Rick Maddow says it, and you guy's dance with the same tune over, and over, and over....

    Or, how about they just discontinue the tax breaks that necessitated the cuts to education.
    How about these ingrates get back to work and stop using our kids as agitprop.

    Little late for that since they were lied to by their candidate. Nothing that a reelection can't fix however.
    Hmmm....I wonder....did the Union back Walker? I think not, but nice try.

    So your view is that whoever is willing to have the most stupid kids wins???
    Like I said, throwing money at our schools is not the problem with education.

    You think cutting funding is going to make it better do you?

Attempted to balance what was now a HUGE deficit, due to those tax cuts, on the backs of the teachers.
    The projected costs of the tax cuts - $117.2 to $140 million. The projected WI deficit - $3.6 billion. You really, truly, quite incredulously, believe that the tax cuts turned a smallish deficit into a "huge deficit"?

    I live in N. IL. and I know the tax cuts have worked to some extent, as I know of a couple of businesses that have already moved and some that are planning on moving to WI.

    Edit, in case you doubt the numbers:

    Yes, saving the state approximately 100 million dollars by increasing taxes on business will turn everythign peachy. Just further proof that those on the left have no concept of budgets.

    Not so quick. A majority in WI do not believe Walker should be recalled. I think you may be in for a rude awakening.

    Asked whether Walker should be recalled, 51 percent of respondents said no, while 44 percent said yes.

    I am not sure what you are referring to but, I assume you must be referring to WW2. If this is the case we didn't go to war with Germany because their were union busting fascist. Anyway we are talking about Wisconsin, although if you like I would be more than happy to discuss WW2 with you on another thread. BTW a side bar, in which you are referring to Germany's Unions, you first go back to WW1, this too, I would be happy to discuss on another thread.

    The left's contention is that Hitler disbanded the unions in Germany prior to WW2. Which means that Walker is the equivalent to Hitler, or some such nonsense.
