    Because I live in the real world and not the right wing fantasy that some here inhabit, it is very difficult to appreciate the rantings of those who willfully try pretend the twentieth century can be repealed.

    I wonder if this kind of thing is helpful...or hurtful to the unions' cause:

    Union Warns of Boycotts in Wisconsin for Lack of Support

    Some members of the State Employees Union are warning businesses in Wisconsin to either support collective bargaining for public employees or face a boycott.

    A letter from Council 24 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees asks businesses to express support by displaying a sign in their window. The letter says failing to support the union will mean a public boycott of the business. And, that neutral means 'no' to supporting the union.

    Jim Haney from the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce calls the union's letter appalling. Haney says businesses shouldn't be forced to choose if they want to remain neutral.

    Council field representative Jim Parrett, who signed the letter, tells the Journal Sentinel that he has gotten threatening phone calls since the letters were distributed, as well as calls of support.

    i hope that they attack all the small businesses they can. after that they should wage a campaign against motherhood and the Boy Scouts.

    Actually the court has spoken and I have no problem with their 20th century rulings.

    ...... Unlike others here who want to turn back the clock before the progressive era.

    Kinda looks like Scotty is getting his hand slapped.

    (Update: Walker administration will comply with judge's order halting collective bargaining law)

    (The state's new law to dramatically limit collective bargaining for public workers has not been published and is not in effect, a judge said Thursday.)

    (State Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch said Thursday he thinks the law is in full force, but agreed to stop implementing it.)

    ("While I believe the budget repair bill was legally published and is indeed law, given the most recent court action we will suspend the implementation of it at this time," Huebsch said. "DOA will continue to abide by the court orders, like the department has)

    Update: Walker administration will comply with judge's order halting collective bargaining law
    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

    right wing fantasy being a desire for less parasites, more independence, less government, more prosperity and less income redistribution

    IE the ideals this country was founded upon

    Haymarket labors under the delusion known as the leftward ratchet of history and jurisprudence. Once things move left, he will howl that any attempts to overturn marxist or socialist nonsense is anti progress.

    true progress is making people less dependent on a nanny state and subservient to Kings, Lords and Dictators. IN that sense, Locke and Rousseau would call Haymarket's Ilk "reactionaries"

    I find it interesting that someone who gets paid by the taxpayer and is dependent on the tax revenue for a salary would talk about parasites, don't you?
