    Good for you.
    But how is this relevant?

    I will no longer join a union and good thing is I live in a right to work state where i can't be forced to join a union like workers are in Wisconsin.
    Workers in Wisconsin are not forced to join unions. I dont think anywhere people are forced to join unions. You have the right to be in unions but we are slowly seeing that taken away from us.

    Unions abuse power and are just another arm of the democrats.
    Lame...

    Stop ignoring that you are just factually wrong.
    Please, Im still waiting on that source from how this protest was Union organized, funded, and brought together.

    You need to look up what is meant by a "Right to Work" state or "Open Shop" state, verses such as a "Closed Shop" state. There are 22 of the former, where you cannot be compelled to join a union. Wisconsin is not one of them. Wisconsin is "closed shop". For instance, every state teacher in Wisconsin pays union dues.

    Meanwhile...while retards in Wisconsin and their supporters still believe it is a 'good thang' to pimp out a Special Olympics ceremony, how many other states (including states with democrat legislatures and governors) have followed the Wisconsin lead and recognized that the union contracts have devastated their budgets?

    How does this relate to a group of non-union students who did not disrupt an event?
    Don't work out, work in.

    How "retarded" is it to use a word in a vile disparaging derogatory way to describe protesters who were allegedly rude to some actual special olympian "retards"?

    you are correct, no one is forced ....when you apply for a job, you are made aware then and there if it is a union shop, at that point, you have a choice....if you don't like unions, say no thank you, and walk away.

    The fundamental differences between a "closed shop" state and an "open shop" state could not be more clear. Gotta luv a state like Wisconsin, where if you wanted to be a teacher in the state system, you had to join the union, and then a mandatory deduction was made from your paycheck and sent to the union, and then over 90% of the union's political contributions went to Democrats !!!

    We taking that **** apart Demo-rats.

    And of course, no one mentions that Walker's budget cuts about $20 million in assistance for families with special needs children.

    And that doesn't count the impact cuts to other mainstream programs would have on family's with special needs children and adults with special needs.

    The only asshole is Gov. Walker who would show his face in front of the most vulnerable of our citizens while his budget proposals will actively harm them. Not having read his entire speech, I will take back my accusations of him being a hypocrite as long as he told the kids that his budget will makes their lives suck so that he could give tax breaks away to the rich folks who bought his office for him.

    How DARE they make budget cuts when their mandated to balance the budget! The nerve!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
