Just about every time I decide to waste my valuable time on this earth discussing anything with a Progressivevik fingersniffer, one word invariably comes up: "greedy".
"CEOs are greedy. The rich are greedy. People who oppose Obamacareless are greedy. The United States is greedy...." Blah, blah, blah, 2+2=5, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's as if their little minds can't come up with another concept. It's fairly apparent that when God was passing out brains, the libs were too busy taking bong hits to care. Critical thinking is certainly not a liberal concept to say the least, since it is the libs, not the rest of us, who are the greedy pigs.
For further proof of the above stated hypothesis, one needs to look no further than the current hubhub created by the public sector unions in Wisconsin. You want to see greed ? Just look at the Badger State's current round of civil unrest.
For those of you who were living under a rock for the last week, the situation in Wisconsin is as follows: The state of Wisconsin, after years of Progressivevik mismanagement, is broke. Thus, the people of Wisconsin elected Conservative Scott Walker as governor to fix it, hoping to avoid the same fate as other failed Progressivevik dystopias like California and New York. Governor Walker immediately set his sights on the state's largest financial problem-- the greedy public sector unions. He and the state legislature drafted a bill to limit the right of the state's government workers to collectively bargain (Or as I like to say, engage in Mafioso tactics.) and force government workers to actually pay a touch more for their benefits. (A measly 8% more.) Needless to say, this was as welcome as a surprise visit from the mother-in-law to the unions. The unions, especially the "teacher" unions, did their best Egyptian imitation and headed to Madison, calling in sick, disrupting public services, and having schools closed. As of this writing, Governor Walker is sticking to his guns (Yes, I said "sticking to his guns". Deal with it, CNN.) and not doing his best John Boehner imitation and folding his tents right away. The protests and counter protests continue.
Is that not greed, Dear Reader ?
If you'll note, Govwernor Walker isn't laying off anyone. Governor Walker isn't furloughing anyone. He's not handing out IOU's like the Jerkinator (hat tip: The Great One, Mark Levin) did in California. Governor Walker is doing what he was elected to do: fix Wisconsin's finacial mess, which has the state in a 3 billion dollar hole. (http://www.comcast.net/slideshow/news-StateDebt/22/ ) Walker is doing what any sane person in his situation would do: curtail expenses. If you'll note, he's doing so in the most humane way possible.
But that's just not good enough for the greedy pigs in the public sector unions, is it ?
These lowlifes couldn't possibly care less if their unemployed neighbors who have children are struggling as is. These lowlifes could care less that those of us work in the private sector go to work everyday hoping they still have a job when they arrive. These lowlifes could care less that we in the private sector pay an arm and leg for our health insurance. (You know, the health insurance that Chairman Obama promised would become cheaper if his Obamacareless scam became law. Another rant for another time, to be sure.) These lowlifes couldn't care less about their neigbors. Their neighbors owe them.
Well, guess what, bottom feeders: your neighbors owe you nothing. They're YOUR bosses. Start acting like it.
God help us all.
That public sector unions can make lavish campaign contributions to very politicians who determine their salaries and benefits is a huge conflict of interest if not all out bribery. Let them have their unions, but make it illegal for them to make campaign contributions of any kind. That would make the unions impotent.
OOORAH! I love it!
That’s not a bad idea, either.
Welcome to FR. Blog pimp much?
Excuse me ?
If I wanted to “pimp” my blog, I’d have excerpted. Now, if you don’t like my blog, feel free not to read it. It’s a semi-free country, after all.
Huh? What’s your prob? He didn’t “pimp” his blog, he posted the article in its entirety.
Aah, pay no attention. Some people carp about blog pimps with the same obsessiveness as liberals carping about greed-one and the same, if you ask me.
The libs are the worst kind of greedy: they demand from others and don’t care about who they harm along the way, much like their hero, Boy George $oros.
Also noteworthy are the Ten Commandments. Not one condemns greed, but cautions against envy!
Ten Commandments talk...QUICK GET THE ACLU OVER HERE, PRONTO!
Just kidding. You know, the world wouldn’t be the cess pool that it is if it just TRIED to follow the Ten Commandments or God’s Word. Instead of just ignoring Him, the world should listen to Him.
As much as I was unable to change a single mind from yesterday’s rally, it was helpful to understand the ‘union’ mindset. Broadly speaking, thier definition of the private sector is: greedy corporations and greedy individiuals. They don’t understand that we are middle class working class people too. It is impossible to convince the rank and file brainwashed people otherwise. That’s why we should ignore all the noise and PASS THE BILL.
I think since the Dem’s left the State instead of doing their duty & voting, they should be fired for “Dereliction Of Duty”!!!......They should have to forfeit their salary also!!
Regan fired the Air Traffic Controllers in the 70’s... There was an uproar; but, Regan came out on top.
I wish Governor Walker well........ He has more backbone than the worthless politicians who walked out!!
He sure does.
