    You will have to look to other countries to observe the effects of one party rule. We have never had to worry about it in this country, until now.

So continue with the partisanship and believing the Obama lies. This is "your" President in action.

    What? Man, your partisanship is allowing you to put words into my mouth. Explain were I blamed Bush. I just found it funny that you give them credit for one and not the other. Everyone knows that Obama came into the office long after the recession had begun and that if a crash happens in 2007, the people elected in 2006 can't be blamed. It's common sense.

    Come on man. Are we having a discussion here or are you just blowing smoke? By the way, I believe the crash was a long time coming from, again, a fatal combination of deregulation in the wrong places and regulation in the wrong places.

    And I didn't happen to click on the link because I like my brain cells and it is clearly off topic anyway.

    Which is exactly why the union busting issue is so critical in Wisconsin.

Scott Walker. I regret the governor's decision to 'endorse' the troopers and inspectors of the Wisconsin State Patrol. I regret being the recipient of any of the perceived benefits provided by the governor's anointing. I think everyone's job and career is just as significant as the others. Everyone's family is just as valuable as mine or any other persons, especially mine. Everyone's needs are just as valuable. We are all great people!!"

    Wisconsin firefighters joined the teachers the other night in a show of solidarity as well!

    Re: Walker takes broad swipe at public employee unions

    So just as a glance........
    It seems we could do away with all union campaign donations and the playing field would be pretty level.
    Stop whining liberals. You don't need the unions anyway.

    Are you in a job field that has unions? If not, what is your prerogative? Also, obviously these people like being a part of a union, which means thats what the people want. Why do you think you are better than they are or that your opinion is worth so much more?
