    Poland's Solidarity Aligns with Wisconsin Workers

    Piotr Duda addressed a letter to the American trade union AFSCME supporting their struggle against the recent attempts to reduce workers’ and trade unions’ rights and cut down wages in the public sector in the State of Wisconsin by Governor Scott Walker.
    In case you don't know who Solidarity is, they are the organization that emerged victorious, after the Soviet style government of Poland attempted to crush their union. Given that Walker's attempt to crush the unions in Wisconsin reeks of Soviet style ruthlessness and tactics, this is a most appropriate endorsement of workers by a union that fought against a repressive government that attempted to force its will on the people too.

    ROTFLOL... comparing Walker with Commies.

    Government workers, those at the tax payer's trough shouldn't be unionized,

    And what if that is what the majority of the people of Wisconsin want? What will you advocate? Letting the people run their government, or advocating that the minority has the right to stop them?

    Will you hum the same tune if the law holds up?

    Organized crime often has supporters who think they can get something and give up nothing. Unions are a very, very lucrative branch of organized crime. Extortion, fraud, bribery, assault, intimidation, theft, and other crimes are their stock in trade.

    Gettin' purdy sick of those saying that Walker's trying to crush the unions...seeing as they will still have more bargaining rights than every Federal employee in the U.S. of A.

    From his infamous telephone call:

    Walker: But in the end, this is, and I even pointed it out last night ‘cause I’m trying to keep out as many of the private unions as possible. I said, this is about the budget. This is about public sector unions. Hell, even FDR got is. There’s no place for the kind of, I mean, essentially you’re having taxpayers’ money being used to pay to lobby for spending more of taxpayers’ money. It’s absolutely ridiculous.
    There's no place for public sector unions - i.e. ultimate goal=get rid of them.

    Murphy (Fake Koch): [Laughs] Well, I tell you what, Scott: Once you crush these bastards I’ll fly you out to Cali (California) and really show you a good time.

    Walker: All right, that would be outstanding. Thanks for all the support in helping us move the cause forward, and we appreciate it, and we’re doing it the just and right thing for the right reasons and it’s all about getting our freedoms back.

    It's about crushing/get rid of public sector unions.

    Walker wants public unions gone - he thinks there's "no place for them". He isn't just about "reigning them in". It's pretty clear.

    Well....fortunate for everyone we live in a republic then. What he wants may make no difference.
