    Yes it is. That money is paid to the unions to represent its members not to be a political arm of the democrat party

    You picking out a very very very small number of teachers and attempting to pretend that they are somehow more useful that averages of thousands of teachers in information suppled by the districts is really a stretch and I think its not at all useful or even informative.
    It is time to stop the unions inflated wages negotiations and cadilac pension and insurance funds. The state and taxpayers can not afford it. Why do you think unions should have power over taxpayers?

    Your last few posts jump from A to Z without any letters in between and do not make much - if any sense.

    The difference is union money is paid by members to represent the members. What a company does with its profits is their business

    No, because represnting its members may well legitimately include supporting a party that will support them as well. It is no different than business and wealthy putting their money into support for a candidate or party. No different at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    scott walker's only aim is to destroy the unions. in fact, the union is willing to make all necessary concessions. but that's not good enough for walker.

    Thats not true. Walker wants a balanced budget which will take years and the unions do not care.,

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    A one party system is inevitable. The big question is who will it be.
