    It certainly is

    How many conservatives stated they would not buy GM because of the bailout? A boycott in other words, how many conservatives boycott various stores for selling what they consider offensive music/videos. Religous groups boycotted Volvo for placing adds in magazines for gays.

    Yet I doubt you were upset by those boycotts now were you

    How soon we forget.

    There's a big difference between private citizens choosing not to purchase a product and an organized union sending out threatening letters to local businesses.

    Personally, I think the unions are shooting themselves in the foot with this stupidity.

    Are you talking about the business owners, or the workers that will be unemployed thanks to the efforts of public employee unions looking out for workers's rights?

    Unions putting people out of work for political reasons? The days of the big unions are over.

    Talk about being "Civil" and losing "gracefully". I enjoy the hell out these "flat nose", "no neck" democrats exposing their TRUE NATURE.

    When a snake is cornered....what other than a snake can it be? It will strike out with all the venom it has available. In this case they are attempting to instill fear when in reality everyone is enjoying a good laugh at their expense.....ITS OVER. There will be no successful recalls, no shut down of businesses....ITS ALL TALK and HYPERBOLE..the only tool available to LOSERS. Want to see a comparison?

    Something interesting I just noticed. Of the 7 unions undersigned, 5 of them are or either police or firefighters, unions that weren't targeted by by the Wisconsin cons.

    Unions are private citizens.

    Yeah....its no big deal......."simply boycotting".....

    .........maybe the Wisconsin MOB should paint "Juden" on all the store fronts that dont abide by their will. It worked for the National Socialists.....

    Well perhaps you should look beyond Media Matters and THE MOB Talking points/outright LIES......

    Wisconsin Police and Firefighters Didn’t Endorse Walker

    There are 314 fire and police unions in the state. Four of them endorsed me. All the rest endorsed my opponent
