Invest 10 minutes in a calm rational Reagan like speech on what the Wisconsin Governor ran on, why he is doing what he is doing, and how 5 million or more Wisconsinites lives are going to be impacted positively by his goal of bringing jobs back to Wisconsin or negatively if the vitiolic crowd wins.

Calling in sick en masse is a strike and it’s illegal in Wisconsin.

If the unions keep working to shut down school systems with these efforts they deserve to be prosecuted and fired.

Rape is OK for DEMS. Bill Clinton proved that.

One of the repubs needs to change his party affiliation long enough for the votes to be cast.

Having a Repub change parties won’t matter. They need 20 senators present to debate the bill and there are only 19 Repubs available.

The problem is not the numbers of which party, but the total number of people present. The total needed is 20, there are only 19 Repubs. Thus, the stand off.

They’ve closed more schools here for tomorrow. They’re dragging all the small towns into this as well. I can just imagine the lies the union thugs are telling them to get them frothing. *Rolleyes*

They are totally shooting themselves in the foot. Walker is NOT going to back down. And he’s going to continue to explain his reasons in a calm, clear and direct manner...while these boobs continue to picket and strike and finally burn themselves out.

The alternative is 5,500 layoffs. Now who is THAT going to benefit? The ideology, the agenda and these radical actions by the unions are going to cripple them in the future. If we can’t bust them, we’ll at least hobble them!

Go, Scott! Go!

"If the unions keep working to shut down school systems with these efforts they deserve to be prosecuted and fired."

That's why the NLRB was packed with Socialist/Union-sympathizers.

If it goes to the NLRB (which they fully expect it will, when firings occur), you can bet that The Messiah's Team will stand by the Unions.

I think we are seeing the seeds of the Entitlements' Crowd's discontent, and the last two years of gun sales show that we expected it to come to this.

On a related note, Madison radio talker John “Sly” Sylvester made it onto O’Reilly’s show tonight to babble inane nonsense in support of the unions of course. You might remember his last rise to national notoriety, when he called Condoleeza Rice, a woman with approximately 300,000 times his mental capacity, “Aunt Jemima”.

At least he steered clear of racism and stuck with his usual stock-in-trade, stupidity, tonight.

A young college student showing support for Walker reported that a woman with three small children in tow screamed in her face, "THESE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO MAKE MOMMY LOSE HER JOB!!!!"

Then the woman slapped her.

That’s not what the quorum issue is.

The senate has 33 members, 19 republican. A quorum of 20 members is needed in the senate to vote. that’s why they only need one democrat.

Worse than that, Sly stated on air that our Republican Lieutenant Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch performs sex acts on conservative talk radio hosts and faked cancer for a sympathy vote.

Kleefisch is currently battling colon cancer.

This woulkd probably take a court ruling:
The Dem Senators by leaving the state en masse have abandoned their elected office. Hold a special election to fill their seats.

Well worth the time to listen to.

I wish my State had a gov. that was willing to lead.

In Wisconsin Union teachers are lying and calling in sick. Great role models, eh?

I think it's great!

They are showing that being a teacher has nothing to do with teaching. It's all about being unaccountable and paid for life. Also, I think Pub Gov's are realizing there is nothing good in supporting govt unions that take members money to give to Rat politicians who when they are in power give them better contracts.

Thanks for the link.

Isn't it great how all this media in the hands of the public helps reveal what's going on?

An excellent observation. I know which side is ready. We are right on the edge of Kristallnacht.

There still has to be 20 in attendance no matter the party affiliation I believe. It wouldn’t help the situation.

Aren’t students that repeatedly call in “sick” required to get a doctor’s note? Do the same for the teachers. Those that can’t produce one, or produce a fraudulent one, should be fired immediately.

That could end this illegal strike real quick.

****

On another note: aren’t unions always portraying their members as “tough fighters” who don’t run away from a problem or challenge?

Well, all I see here is a bunch of chickens running and hiding. Let’s be honest, calling in “sick” or refusing to show up for a legislative vote is the cowards’ way out.

Maybe the theory is that each Dem gets to vote more than once — that seems to be the way it works in elections, anyway ....

Its even worse that that. He said that Rebecca was only popular with the Milwaukee conservative radio guys because she performed sexual acts on them. There’s even more that I won’t type.

This is a very sick odious man and it says very poor things that O’Reilly would even get near him.
