    What I most enjoy are these idiots attempting to portray THE PEOPLE of WIS(CONED)SIN as some EVIL FAT CAT CORPORATION they can declare class warfare on, the same for all the PEOPLE of other states who have been taxed into economical exhaustion that must now attempt to balance their budgets, as the goose that ****s gold (BIG BROTHER) is now crapped out....there can be no further bail outs when there is no more money. The UNIONS are now being exposed as FAT CAT SOCIALISTS who steal from the people, and they are taking to the streets in panic....just like in GREECE. Its just a matter of time until, as the GREAT CIVILITY LEADER from the great broke back state of Taxachusetts (Capuano)....WE NEED A LITTLE BLOOD IN THE STREET.

    Yea, that sounded like a serious offer and serious acceptance between two guys who had never met

    Maybe they're back

    Ever check out Trumka? He sure reminds me of a mobster.


    HowStuffWorks "How the Mafia Works"

    One of the most notorious Mafia schemes was the infiltration of labor unions. For several decades, it is believed that every major construction project in New York City was controlled by the Mafia. Mobsters paid off or threatened union leaders to get a piece of the action whenever a union group got a construction job, and they sometimes made their way into the ranks of leadership themselves. And once the Mafia had its grip firmly on a union, it could control an entire industry. Mafioso could get workers to slow or halt construction if contractors or developers didn't make the right payoffs, and they had access to huge union pension funds. At one point, the Mafia could have brought nearly all construction and shipping in the United States to a halt. But the last 20 years have seen the federal government crack down on Mafia-union connections to a great extent.

Only an idiot progressive makes national news of their own intellectual dishonesty...but then again we are speaking of PROGRESSIVE who believes that lying is the same as breathing.

    And what is to explain? The governor talking to a political supporter? Not hardly as funny as the PREZ giving an audience to Richard Trumka at least 3 times a week in the middle of this situation. How many millions of dollars has the Prez taken from Trumka and the other union bosses through this money laundering scheme known as UNION DUES?

    First, the citizen gets taxed, and with those taxes they pay the salary of the Public Service Union members....then that money is turned around and placed directly into the coffers of the Democrat Campaign fund. Same old tactics being used by these mafia types. The people are being cheated to purchase their own votes with the money conned from them in the first place. Look at the Stimulus Bill, 75% of that total went to keep these public servants 100% employed...and with that salary they pay dues...which gets turned into Campaign Contributes and the membership nor the tax payer gets a say as to how their tax dollars are being spent.

    You can tell when the left is losing a battle....they must FAKE something and report it as news. The old tactic of using class warfare will not work this time around as its not some supposed giant evil corporation fat cat the union is attempting to demonize and declare class warfare on....its the PEOPLE who make half as much as these pompous fat cat union members who pay their maffia bosses millions of dollars in CEO salaries. The tables are turned...so they make something up...that is not news in the first place.

    Question, what's wrong with any Governor taking a call from someone he was conned into believing was a political supporter when Prez does the same thing almost every day of the week?

    Ah yes, that's James O'Keefe you are talking about, right? It's not? But he did the same thing. Why did you support him misrepresenting himself, and editing a conversation he had at an ACORN office to make it look like a crime had been committed, when it hadn't? Why did you support Andrew Breitbart editing a speech that Shirley Sherrod had made in order to make her look like a racist, which she isn't?

    You see, this kind of crap works both ways. I see many on the right supporting these kinds of actions when it's against their opponents on the left, but when it's done to them by the opposition, the faux rage is unbelievable. And yea, the Liberals do the same. So, I have one question to ask. No, make that two, one for the Liberals and another for the Conservatives:

    1) To the Conservatives: When are you going to repudiate O'Keefe and Breitbart, and stop supporting him?

    2) To the Liberals: When are you going to repudiate what was done to Governor Walker, and stop supporting that?

    Come on, folks. You can't have one standard for yourself, and another standard for your opponents. Those who do this kind of crap, are either scumbags who deserved to be shunned by all, or they are heroes to be supported and adored. You can't have it both ways, where some are heroes and others are goats, depending on whether he is a Democrat or Republican. That's hyperpartisan BS. But, in the end, I am sure that some are going to tell me that what I am posting is BS, and explain to me the circumstances in which they CAN have it both ways, and how it's only right that SOME people who do this are heroes, and others are goats, depending on political affiliation. Believe me. I DO want to hear this, just for the LULZ I will get from it. So who wants to go first?

    In short, if you supported your own people doing crap like this, then just STFU when it's the other way around.

    Yeah I was pretty amazed that a conservative actually said: You can tell when the left is losing a battle....they must FAKE something and report it as news. How long ago was that Planned Parenthood infiltration story? We just got done talking about it and now conservatives are claiming that pretending to be someone you aren't in order to expose your opponent is solely a liberal tactic? As a left-leaning American, let me get in line and say that this whole "call up your enemy and pretend to be a friend" thing is BS journalism. It's fine for a prank, but this guy was supposedly trying to report a story, and tricking somebody into taking a personal phone call immediately makes any information gained virtually useless. It would be one thing if Walker had admitted to some grand conspiracy or referenced a secret tactic or a transexual prostitute, but this was a pretty ambiguous conversation.

    The call does further my distaste for Walker. He's awfully comfortable having a lengthy and friendly conversation with somebody urging him to crush the innocent people who wholeheartedly disagree with what's happening in that state. What a typical jerk. And I think that Barb's comment that Walker didn't know Koch donated to his campaign is ridiculous. That's like you not knowing how you got home last night.

    Let me quote myself:

It's sad when done by some on the right to go after their targets, and it is equally sad here. We should be condemning any one who stoops to these types of tactics, on either side. How you win is just as important as winning.

    I'm not a fan of Breitbart, and generally am not fond of entrapment situations. That said, as I've said on all sorts of issues, the world isn't black and white. There is a different level of dislike with regards to directly misrepresenting yourself as a specific person and something eneric.

    For example, in this case, if the person just put himself forth as a wealthy republican donor rather than attempting to impersonate a specific person I'd have less of an issue with his action. Still not "no" issue, and I wasn't completely without issue with Breitbart's guy either, but I think pretending to be a specific factual person is a bit worse than a more generalized deception as you're not just assuming a new identity but stealing someone elses essentially.

    I think often you have to look at what is being uncovered as well, as again things don't function in a vacuum. For example, if what he did on the phone regarding donors was an actual legitimate breakage of the law (and not just some left wing blogger speculating it MIGHT be) then I have far more issues with him because he actually did something illegal. On the flip side, a lot of what he said is as likely to be bluff and bluster as legitiamte strategy and until he actually ATTEMPTS it its not something I would get upset about. This is in part why I'm not fond of these type of styled "stings" when its just to get information, because the fact the information is being gained in a fraudulent way causes the legitimacy, hoensty, and seriousness of things it finds out to be called into question thus making it more useful for propoganda than any kind of honest reporting.

    Come on, folks. You can't have one standard for yourself, and another standard for your opponents.

    I support both... it's fair for O'Keefe to do it and it was fair when these bloggers did it to Walker. Difference is, the O'Keefe stuff actually found out very damning truths, and it's reverberations were felt all the way to Washington --- so much so ACORN no longer exists. The Walker phone call --- was boring, nothing really new here and he's said everything on that phone call that he's said in public to the press.

    It's a fair tactic no matter who does 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.
