Unions will lose big and GOP Governor Scott Walker will win big this Tuesday in Wisconsin. Heres why.
Government employee unions are a real threat to national security, far worse than the unproven fraud called global warming. Government employee pensions threaten our childrens future. They will destroy the American Dream and wipe away our quality of life. America is doomed to follow Europe off the cliff, if we dont dramatically reform public pensions today.
Here in my hometown of Las Vegas, we have some of the most clueless, delusional union members in the country. A recent Letter to the Editor to the Las Vegas Review Journal sums up the reason why unions will lose big on Tuesday in Wisconsin. The letter writer decided to comment on all the letters attacking unions in recent days- including complaints about their bloated salaries and obscene pensions.
This letter, from a Las Vegas Teachers Union member, hits a new level for clueless and delusional. Let me paraphrase. He said, For those who dont understand why we are making so much more money than you its simple. Were unionized and youre not. Those of us that work for government make so much more than you because we were smart enough to join unions. Only 6% of you in the private sector belong to unions. Youre all fools. Instead of attacking us for our bloated salaries and insanely high pensions you should be joining a union and getting the same bloated salaries and insanely high pensions. So stop trying to tear us down. Instead, get the same deal for yourselves.
You want to know why private sector taxpayers are angry? Why we wont take it anymore? Why Governor Walker will win big on Tuesday? This letter is Exhibit A. This one teachers union member showed why unions are a disaster for the economy, taxpayers, and the America we love. He just killed the goose that laid the golden egg. Say goodbye to that pampered privileged class life youve been living, by sucking off the rest of us like a leech. As Donald Trump would say,Youre fired.
Can you imagine being this delusional, ignorant, and clueless? Even if you think this way (and I have to believe many government union employees do), to say it publicly makes you a moron. A moron who believes that money grows on trees, there are endless trees, and pigs fly. But pigs also go to slaughter.
The cold, hard truth is that America is bankrupt, broke, and insolvent. Just like Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, France and soon add UK to the list. Europe is facing an economic Armageddon that will go down in history as the Big One. Why? Because they have too many government employees, let them retire too early, give them bloated pensions for more years than the employee actually worked, and of course they all get free healthcare for life. Unions killed the EU. Its all over for them. The question is can America still be saved?
In Las Vegas as firefighters reach retirement they are making just under $200,000 per year. In Orange County, California lifeguards are making over $200,000. Bart employees in San Francisco average over $100,000. Education administrators throughout the state of California are retiring on over $200,000 per year. In NY the Port Authority cops average $100,000. Toll takers are retiring on six figure pensions. In Illinois, there are dozens of retired government employees and union bosses sucking $400,000 per year from taxpayers. In Wisconsin the bus drivers are making $100,000. Its happening all over the country: Government Gone Wild.
Stop worrying about a few CEOs, Wall Street titans, and bankers who receive $100 million compensation packages. First, those high fliers are few and far between. Second, youre being purposely distracted by the union bosses and their friends in the liberal media. Those CEO's are in the private sector. What they make doesnt cost you one cent. Taxpayers dont pay for private sector salaries. Their compensation is a problem only for shareholders, not you. But the bill for 21 million government employees, many making $100,000 (or far more) in retirement, adds up to far more than a few $100 million CEO's. And the bill goes directly to you- the taxpayer and onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.
The unfunded liability for federal employees is now over $5 trillion. Unfunded Postal Service pensions are $2 trillion. Its almost as bad at the State and local level with unfunded liability of $2 to $3 trillion. One state- California- has an unfunded liability of at least half a trillion dollars (and growing). Its all madness. Its unthinkable. It is so big it will drown us all. In case you dont know what Im talking about, an unfunded liability is something politicians promised to retiring government employees, but with no money set aside to pay it.
A typical government employee receiving $100,000 per year, retiring at age 50 has, for all intents and purposes, been promised around $4 million dollars if he lives to 90. Thats before cost of living increases and, of course, free healthcare. Add it up. One employee is getting somewhere around $6 million as a golden parachute. One educator. One fireman. One toll taker. One lifeguard. How many of you taxpayers have a $6 Million retirement fund?
Are you angry yet? When clowns like the Vegas teacher, who wrote that letter to the editor, start telling us that money grows on trees and pigs fly, youd better get mad very mad...and let them know your hard earned taxpayer dollars did not grow on trees...and that it doesn't ever end well for pigs.
Now you know why Scott Walker will win big in Wisconsin on Tuesday.
However, we must remember that “they” have Holder and his House O’Failed Lawyers in the Just Us Depravement.
We don’t need no stinkin’ voter ID.
Hey, cracker, let that dead body into that voting booth.
WI Recall Ping!!
One day to go!!
Between Holder and the Absentee Votes...Im not going to cheer until all the numbers come out! I put NOTHING past the corrupt Holder and the union thugs, and the Black Panther punks!
I hope he wins big, if nothing else but to shut the pie holes of all the liberals with their Pruis and Subaru sticker laden vehicles who are always in your face. The angry Blue Fisters.
I hope that the Wisconsin vote is a resounding win for Walker and a kick in the nuts for the thugs of uniondom
I hope this is right but frankly I am VERY WORRIED about this election.
Harry Reid was behind by from 1 to 3 points just before the 2010 election, where the union “get-out-the-vote” effort was probably comparable to this one. He ended up winning by 6 points!
Walker is, on average, about 6 points ahead. this could be close.
If anyone on this bulletin board can help tomorrow please do so. And if anyone has concrete suggestions for where to help please post it!.
In any event, I agree with Wayne Root that the public is waking up and realizing that these 'public service' employee unions and their insane salaries, benefits and pensions are killing us, financially. That being the case, I also believe that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will win the recall election, decisively, despite the vote fraud that will be accomplished with the help of Eric Holder's DOJ.
I can't wait to see how the leftmedia will spin that. Probably by screaming about voter 'improprieties' and demanding an investigation. However, if Walker has a big enough margin of victory, that phony claim won't fly. Let's hope that happens.
The unions are making so much noise that they will wake the dead, which is their intention.
I live in Michigan and today I got an email request from my union, the MEA, requesting that we make GOTV calls on behalf of the unions in Wisconsin to recall Gov. Walker.
Many of the Vegas hotels make it very plain that all union members need to vote. They extend “lunch breaks” and bus the workers to the polls. The pressure applied by the union bosses is relentless and intimidating. A large numbers of these workers are apolitical but fear retaliation. Obama and Reid have benefited greatly by this coercion and Nevada may decide the 270th electoral vote.
Please, Wisconsin,restore my faith in America’s voters.
If not, no more orders for Seroogys chocolates!!
I don’t just want a victory. I want this to be 55-45 or “worse.” I want a demoralization. Waterloo.
WI public union members now have a choice to pay or not pay union dues, and about 40% are deciding that those funds belong in their own bank accounts. I can’t see them voting for the rat and in effect saying they’d rather go back to the old ways where the funds were automatically taken and they had no say in the matter.
In Scott Walkers presumed victory speech he better take advantage of the moment. By that he I mean should take a shot or 2 the man in the White House. He should inform the voters that the unions should be ashamed of themselves for not waiting until November to express their displeasure.
I’m still delivering Walker/Kleefisch doorhangers yet tonight. I don’t trust any polls and want to have a clear conscience tomorrow that I have done everything I could to fight the good fight.
Tax it all back.
Great job! I am from MN but go back to WI every weekend to help care for my elderly (95 yr old) father. I just contributed another $25 to Scott Walker. It's never too late to work - call - handouts - contribute. I pray that God will intervene in this spiritual battle and decisively defeat the satanic, demonic demoRATS & unions.
I want to listen to a good local Wisconsin conservative radio station tomorrow. Which streams live and which do you recommend? I appreciate this. Go Walker!
You’re a real “on the ground boots kind of foot soldier”
Thank you for your service to our Country!
