I live in Wisconsin and my sense is the populous is 50/50 on Gov. Walker's performance. The guy is a bit of a prick, not that it bothers me, but it does bother others.

My sense is the populous is 60/40 in favor of Act 10, the law cracking public unions.

My sense is the populous is 70/30 or maybe 80/20 against the concept of recalls, turning the state into a quasi-parliamentary state.

do ya think that the unions have just a little too much power??? They certainly do, and their followers are of the intellectual level that they too might “feel the power”

We’re armed to the teeth and waiting.

And if we're going to do this, I say sooner rather than later. I don't want to leave this for our children and grandchildren to have to fight.

Well Dick....better check your resources before declaring victory.

There are folks poised to stomp on your fingers, if you should be perceived to over-reach.

More like chocolate covered bacon and a bucket of KFC and a tall glass of warm gravy to wash it all down.

I don’t know if the name Lavrenty Beria still sends cold chills up the spines of younger Americans, but in the 1960s-70s it scared the hell out of most of us. He was Stalin’s most ruthless hatchet man. Stalin introduced him to FDR at Yalta as “Our Himmler.” It looks to me like Trumka is trying out for Obama’s American version of the Beria/Himmler role.

A lot of conjecture that Beria poisoned Stalin, because he caught wind of Stalin planning to purge the entire Politburo....then Khrushchev had Beria killed soon after he took power.

Of course. He was taken to the basement of the Lubyanka and shot, the same way he’d disposed of so many of Stalin’s rivals. That’s the usual fate of useful idiots but of course their egos are high on power and they never see it coming.

To communicate a threat of physical harm to another is a crime...even if you have no intention of acting on that threat.Such a threat made against an elected official may well be a Federal crime.If I'm right I wonder if Trumka’s ever been to Kansas....Leavenworth Kansas?

"debilitate Walker if he should win,",

Ok...

Is that a threat against the Governor?

If so, can he send his State Police or Sheriff's across State-Lines to question Trumpka and or detain him?

IMHO that was serious as a heart attack, tell me where I am wrong FR-er law enforcement officers and legal eagles...
