The main reason why I have avoided talking about the WI union bill is the over the top rhetoric from both sides. The vast majority of union members are not "thugs," and the stereotype of connecting unions to organized crime are largely overblown. My mother has been a public school teacher in New Jersey for decades, and she is not a thug. On the other hand, comparing Walker to the Eastern Bloc regimes or Nazi Germany is incredibly asinine. Walker, the state's executive, passed asked the legislature to pass a bill regarding how government in his state will be run. Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union violently crushed all opposition and got rid of private, as well as public unions.
