Over at DU they are all talking about some election today, Wisconsin I think?

They seem awfully unhappy with how it went.

It almost makes me feel that German word, what is it, Susan Freud? The feeling a cook gets when their competitor’s cake goes flat in a high stakes baking contest?

Before you're too sure Parrot's goose is cooked, you've gotta know the votes in the slums of Milwaukee haven't been tabulated, er, rigged yet.

Did I hear that a liberal precinct was able to bring in 119 percent turnout?

"Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool." --Clinton presidential aide Paul Begala, July 1998

Public Service doesn't mean you're to be serviced by the public for life

President Kennedy’s Executive Order 10998, allowing Federal unions, is what opened the door for public sector unions at the state and local level, which is leading to bankruptcy from bloated public sector salaries, benefits, and retirement plans. Businesses that offered plans like many governments have would go bankrupt. Gov’t entities will, too, eventually, but it will be much more painful.

This is why unions should again be outlawed for public employees.

When collective bargaining was brought into American schools in the 1960s, it was a revenue stream and power base for Big Labor. Suddenly, union bosses became more interested in building political muscle than educating children.

At that point the battle between unions and school boards became more focused on salary, benefits, pensions and working conditions for adults, and less about students.

Kids are only pawns in the self-serving union game.

What is the purpose of teacher unions? To work for children? Establish new and better requirements? Push their members to better serve parents and children?

"Despite what some among us would like to believe, it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children. And it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power. And we have power because there are more than 3.2 million people who are willing to pay us hundreds of millions of dollars in dues each year because they believe that we are the unions that can most effectively represent them, the unions that can protect their rights and advance their interests as education employees" ...National Education Association's just-retired General Counsel Bob Chanin. (The NEA is the County and State Association's parent body).

NEA General Counsel Bob Chanin Says Farewell:

VIDEO

As legendary New York teachers union leader Albert Shanker said, "When school children start paying union dues, that's when I'll start representing the interests of school children."

All government unions should be banned. The idea that government workers need protection from guess who?? THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, is ridiculous. remember, teachers are government employees. Ban government unions.

I think it was “projected to be 119% if the same number of human beings showed up all day”, but then slowed down to below 100%

Governor Walker: while putting differences aside to work together is a good idea, I think that another good idea would be to prosecute a number of those who committed vote fraud against the people of Wisconsin.

Is that a union job? If so, maybe some cheese and some of that winning Walker water instead.

Did he get in his office yet? Are any keys missing, like a W, from the ocmputers?
