Funny how a lone Illionois Tea Party member can find the Wisconsin Senators that CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and ABC can’t/Don’t want to find, eh?

So ... why doesn't the GOP separate the collective bargaining provisions into a new bill, pass it through committee, and vote on it without the Dems present?

That seems to be the big sticking point, and it has nothing to do with appropriations. A quorum isn't needed to vote on a collective bargaining bill, is it?

Thanks. I’ve been jumping all over the place trying to keep up. Links to breaking stories and cross-posts can be posted here. It worked well with the Egypt mess.

I heard on Vicki McKenna’s show (a local WI conservative talk show) today that these derelict Senators could be charged with a Class 1 felony under WI law for not performing their key legislative duties (such as showing up for votes).

That's excellent news. Things are getting out of control enough that this sort of thing needs to be punished severely and made very unpleasant for anyone engaging in these marxist tactics.

An "undisclosed location" somewhere near the capitol. I think they are not out of state anymore but I do NOT know for sure. There is so much conflicting information out there and the media is helping them hide.

Maybe this thread can help pull together scattered information and we can get to the bottom of some of this stuff.

A quorum is 20. There are 19 republicans. They need at least one democrat to pass any financial bills.

It would be nice if ALL the Democrats left the COUNTRY!!!

Maybe this will set a trend.

They can go to Egypt or Great Britain. They wouild be happier there. I think even the Russian Federation is too “conservative” for them. After all, they rejected Communism.

At what point are the Senators considered unfit to carry out their duties and relieved?

If someone was really sick or in surgery for weeks on end they would be booted out of the position no?

I heard a radio report claiming that since the Wisconsin State Patrol members belong to a union, they would not be doing a very thorough job of trying to find any Rat Senator who is in hiding out there. No way to confirm that obviously.

Thank you for starting this thread...needed a place to vent!

Watching these spoiled brat union leaches & rent-a-mob protesters in Wisconsin makes me so mad I could spit!

It's time for the productive segment of the population to put a stop to this crap! The country has been bled to near death by these parasites and we're running out of time to save the Republic. What are we waiting for?!

Light the torches and break out the pitchforks! LET'S ROLL!

I say keep them away for at least 60 days.
In the mean time,

1)pass every other single non-quorum legislation that can be passed.
2) start a recall petition for the closest 3 to 4 senators from the last election. You only need 25% of the total vote from last election to recall
3) Turn off their state cell phones, withhold their salaries, withhold their staff funding, cancel their per diem, etc
4) have session every single day and pass one more rule / law that you know will just piss them off.

Thank you sooo much- I was getting DIZZY from all the threads.

I am trying to understand how it’s legal (clearly it’s not ethical) for a president of the United States to send out his own political organization (Organizing for America) to stop a vote in a STATE legislature.

This is mindboggling:
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0211/49804.html

Also- for what it’s worth- a poll shows 64% of the country is against unions for public employees. And there’s info here also for the rally to support Gov. Walker tomorrow:

I’d like to find out if they are paying their bills with govt credit cards, then let them know that doing so is misuse of govt funds. Then fine them on top of making them pay it back, after they get out of jail.

That seems to be the big sticking point, and it has nothing to do with appropriations. A quorum isn't needed to vote on a collective bargaining bill, is it?

And while they're at it, make Wisc a right-to-work state, and pass Vermont-style CCW and a stand-your-ground law.

You can pass a Senate rules change with 2/3 of members present, with just majority quorum. Pass a rule that provides a fine of $5,000 for evading a quorum call. Per day.

I’m all in favor of that. But can we hold off till we get a couple of recall petitions going? If we can just replace one of the run run run dems, then the republicans can do what they want.

This is truly one of the most humorous situations I run across in my lifetime.
I’ve never seen such a bunch of cowards. I’ve seen equally greedy groups but not to the extent that they were willing to make total fools of themselves in this manner.
The unions and Democrats have no conception of leadership.
My question is how do they expect to pay for what the teachers want?
The whole world is laughing.
