    Re: Poland's Solidarity Aligns with Wisconsin Workers

    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.

    Hey, don't forget. The guys bashing the unions were all born in Kenya too.

    Ditto. You get what you give.

    It's quite disingenuous to peddle crappola yourself and then complain when the favor is returned.

    Kindergarten debate tactic. Show us where she agrees that "unions gone" is what she said he wanted.

    I agree. Union workers dont get up in the morning and consciously think about screwing the taxpayers. They get out of bed and go to work to make a living and feed their families.
    Walker is not a Communist but he certainly was an overbearing I dont want to hear nothing from no one person, who the first thing he did upon being elected was give the corporations and the wealthy a tax cut and the second thing he did was to take it off the workers.
    Its been the same scenario with several Govs...Christie, Walker, Kasich, and others, get elected immediately give another tax cut and then attack the working class. I would have had more respect for them if they didnt give tax cuts and asked for concessions from public workers, then waited until the finances turned around to give another tax cut.

    Paul Ryans budget plan does the same thing...tax cuts for the rich and corporations then takes from the poor and middle class.
    Seriously who is kidding who here.
