    what corporation? these are public unions.

    you could argue it is power to the people; since they are regaining some control over their own government.

    but corporations?

    One of the goals seems to be limiting the amount of money union donate to political campaigns, something that has been removed from Corporation

    So companies get to buy the politicians, but not unions
    Conservatives believe that the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will ensure it is

There's nothing wrong with withholding your patronage for businesses whose politics are contrary to your own. Conservative groups and liberal groups and groups in between all use economic boycotts to express their displeasure with a business or public entity.

    It's called "reading between the lines".

    No, it would be meaningless.

    Mayor Snorkum doesn't listen to Rush, so he wouldn't hear the advice, and Mayor Snorkum is far to intelligent to listen to any air-headed broad a propaganda network like MSNBC puts in front of a camera.

    Fortunately the unions comprise less than 12% of the American public so their power to extort compliance or punish by boycott is minimal. What is important is that these extortionists are the cops, and they have extra legal means of committing harm not available to the rest of us.

    This must be challenged.

    What rights have been lost by any employee of Wisconsin?

    Hint: The correct answer is "not one".

    Freedom of association means a voluntary grouping.

    Collective bargaining requires involuntary participation, a direct contradiction of the First Amendment.

    Ergo, ending collective bargaining is restoring freedom and rights, not ending them.

    Not one person is forbidden from joining their union under the new law. Nor are they forced to participate.
