A Liberal Meltdown in Wisconsin [The First of Many Dems Nightmares]
ATR ^ | 2011-02-17 | Joshua Culling

The Wisconsin State Capitol is currently locked down. Pro-union protesters are intimidating legislators by pounding on windows, screaming insults and vandalising public property. Above is a picture of union protestors, many of whom are teachers who called off sick to storm the Capitol. Teacher strikes are illegal in Wisconsin.

The Senate needs 20 members present for a quorum; there are 19 Republicans. Sen. Roberta Darling (R) told the media today that all Democrat Senators are on a bus heading out of the state so as to avoid quorum. The police have been dispatched to find them and drag them back to the Capitol to represent their constituents.

The events unfolding in Madison today completely validate SB 11 itself...

Take this article and others I found to the fight to the Libs on their own turf; put the Left on the defensive at at Digg and at Reddit and in Delicious and Stumbleupon

The worse they get the better. Here are some of the most well paid and job secure people in the country doing this while we go down the tubes.

Let’s see, when those that call evil good experience evil, is that good? Maybe so.

Now is the perfect time to debate and pass the legislation. Perhaps the zombies will finally gain some shred of understanding that the dems could care less about them.

Confirmation of violence at the capitol other than from a blog? I’d like to share but I have been burned before.

Lol! You’re so right, we need a new tone, eh? (Let’s hear their tone when public sector unions aren’t causing chaos.)

Proof that democrats are communists. Unions are communists inspired and are showing their force to take over government. What fun.

I would love to see a governor fire every single teacher that went on strike and replace them with non-union teachers. I guess that is why I will never be in a position of power like that. Normal hard working people that won’t compromise on values are very rare in public life. Not so rare in the working class.

You got that right! It’s all in his plan to make us all fight and he puts us under Martial Law. We go from a Republic to Dictatorship overnight.

“the teacher’s broke the law as teacher strikes are “ILLEGAL” in Wisconsin.”

Yet, most teacher’s union contracts allow paid-days off for “lobbying” at the statehouse....

My (very conservative) wife is a college professor in WI. I told her that whatever happens, she must NOT go on strike. I guarantee Governor Walker is reading up on how Reagan handled the air traffic controllers.

If there are pictures of people who called in sick there, that would be fraud and cause for dismissal IMO.

I think he has already called them “good people doing important work” if FOX played the right clip.

You’re free to speak all you want. You’re free to protest. You’re not free to spend the taxpayers money to pay you to protest, and you’re not free to lie about the reason you’re not showing up for work.

When I ran my company if you lied to me about why you were not coming to work your job was toast. No ifs, ands, buts or maybes, and no second chances.

Ever.

Either go back to work or get fired and replaced.

End of discussion.


love Denninger ...

This kind of meltdown is good. It needs to happen on a national scale.

Semi-anarchy is like a good puke after a drinking binge that makes you feel better almost instantly.

They ended up shutting down the schools, so it’s hard to say whether the ones protesting were the “sick leave” ones, or the ones who got out of school because of the “sick leave” ones.

I think those who show up protesting in pictures should be fired.

Fire the ones who called in sick and were in pictures, there are records.

If they didn’t take vacation time and called in “sick”, yes.

This isn't the first time a minority party in a legislature has done this ~ usually the absentees will be portrayed as having left in a group. In reality you'll always have a couple of members "at home" or "in the office".

All you have to do is go pick one of them up and he'll go quietly.

So I suspect you are absolutely correct ~ somebody showed up!

GOVERNMENT UNIONS WILL SEE AMERICA DEAD ON THE FLOOR BEFORE THEY GIVE UP THEIR FAT GOVERNMENT SALARIES AND LOTTERY STYLE TAX PAID GOVERNMENT PENSIONS

Private sector

The private sector is being robbed and gang raped by those in government

Some Twitter-capable FReeper should be able to find some of these people and communicate with them. I don't twitter, it confuses the heck out of me...

"Teacher strikes are illegal in Wisconsin."

Arrest them.
