Bravery and Common Sense Prevail in Wisconsin
In what Reuters is calling “a confrontation with unions that could be the biggest since then President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers nearly 30 years ago,” the Wisconsin Senate approved a scaled-down version of Governor Scott Walker’s (R) budget-repair bill last night that would rein in government union collective bargaining powers. After securing approval from three widely respected nonpartisan agencies—the Legislative Fiscal Bureau, the Legislative Council, and the Legislative Reference Bureau—Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald removed the appropriations measures from Walker’s budget, thus eliminating the need for any of the 14 truant Democratic Senators to be present for the vote. The State Assembly will take up the new version of the bill at 11 a.m. today, and if it passes, Walker will have achieved a significant victory for taxpayers everywhere.

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes
will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain
to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it
will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit
that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for
more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

This is what the people of Wisconsin are paying their public workers to do? Threaten ELECTED public officials? I wonder if it was the World Socialists urging such vile behavior? They sure seem to be expecting public sector unions to break the state’s laws. But then, what is law when it comes to such thugs. Contrary to what these animals would like to believe, THEY are the minority. Perhaps they will go on strike, and every damn one of them will lose their jobs. There are thousands who would LOVE to have a job, and I’m sure a great many would be happy to move to Wisconsin to earn a living and support their families.
To say I’m disgusted with the garbage coming out of our former state of residence would be a total understatement! To hear the mobs shouting “this is democracy in action” proves the utter ignorance of the thugs.
