Good. Maybe now that democracy is dead, perhaps we can get back to the original business of being a republic.

I suppose Wisconsin doesn't have a `sore loser' law, so they demanded another election and lost that as well, even with their resurrected zombie and bussed-in supporters. So now Democracy has died for them. That's too bad. Too too bad.

These Democrats are near suicide. They must actually believe the nonsense they hear on MSNBC.

In that world : One minute Barret is going to save WI from the evil big business empire run by the Koch brothers (they control everything you know) with a massive 'get out the vote' and the next Barret is conceding the election and now all elections are bought by Koch empire and we are all serfs again so there no point in getting out of bed anymore.

This would be sad if it wasn't so funny... jump, jump OOOPS LOL.

Actually, it’s ironic that our good _Republic_ took a step towards restoration via a state _democratic_ election.

The fathers of our Republic would be trilled!!! Some semblance of proper government spending and curtailed group voted self benefits was achieved.

Years ago (before I was born), union thugs beat my grandfather to the point where he was never the same. I never had one conservation with him. Union thugs stole that from me. He was in the hospital 3 weeks and nothing, nothing at all was done to the men who did this. Everyone said they did not see anything. My grandfather is in heaven now, but one day those men, if they did not or do not repent, will answer to the ultimate judge.

Democracy or ginned-up-mob-ocracy?

It is so transparently corrupt it is to laugh. “Democracy” as ballyhooed by these union idiots isn’t even anything like it was practiced in its Greek birthplace, which had more or less fair plebiscites and managed to survive admirably for quite a while.

The collective bargaining by government workers was given to us by then Gov. Gaylord Nelson(D).

Earth Day 1970 was brought to you by Sen. Gaylord Nelson (D-WIS).

Earth Day 1970 was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin.... Conincidence? Not a chance.

Filthy F’ing communists every last one of them.

It appears the Union Brotherhood’s Wisconsin Spring thing didn’t work out. LOL! Well, this isn’t Cairo. The goons can’t complain though, they got free pizza out of it from their Egyptian brothers in Cairo when they invaded the state capitol with their signs and drums.

These people do not care what grief, loss, and chaos they wreak upon families and lives so long as their pillows get the proper number of feathers.

Especially today — in days of yesteryear employer corruption was a genuine problem and things could get life threatening in either direction, but that is not accepted in the USA under modern standards, unions or no. Unions have virtually worn out their useful existence in the USA. 85% of American workers aren’t union.

What goes around comes around, to some measure on earth as well as perfectly in heaven.

'Democracy Died Tonight'

Bullshit. They didn't like the way the original election went down so they abused the recall process. Now after this recall election, they still don't like the outcome so "democracy" must be dead. It doesn't occur to these self-centered assholes that maybe, juuuust maybe people are tired of parasites like them and want their liberty back; hence the "process" worked as designed. The losers are just that, two time losers.

So how come federal workers don't have that "right?" Even FDR thought that was too crazy....

The Leftist media leads these folks astray so effectively. Getting spoon fed on campuses by their professors, and Democrat leaders in public, it’s actually surprising more people don’t wind up wigged out like this.

We have got to get our universities back on the right track.

If you want federal funds, get your staff somewhere near political party or else.

It's right next to the ‘right to marry’ amendment that forces states to issue marriage licenses to LGBTs.

They still get CB for wages.

MSNBC tells them that it's a right and the word ‘right’ was poll tested to resonate with voters.
Problem is much time went by and some WI voters actually figured out that the government worker's benefits comes out of their own (taxpayers) hide’s after MSNBC claiming that they were all in the same boat being denied those 'rights'.

Meanwhile, in the WI High Schools:

The latest evidence comes from Milwaukee Teachers Education Association President Bob Peterson, who boasted this week about his union's efforts to sway voters, including high school students, to recall Walker in today's election....Specifically, Peterson bragged about a district-wide program to put flyers of union propaganda in the backpacks of students. He also claimed credit for the union's effort to physically drive parents and students to the polls to vote.

As Dems keep whining about how much money was donated to Walker, why don't GOP talkers mention this kind of power Walker was fighting aganst?

I agree. One sign that Walker is politically astute is that he exempted police and firefighters. If he had not done that, the odds of one of the goons' subsequent campaigns (senate recall, Prosser election, Walker recall) would have been higher.

Haha, I have been waiting for this video to be posted on FR all day! Thanks for posting it.

On a serious note, this idiot wouldn’t know what America really is. What he wants is to be able to legally steal property for the people that earn it. He is to damn lazy to go earn it himself and now he is weeping over having to care for himself.

The NEA has accomplished exactly what Marx envisioned.

Unions have virtually worn out their useful existence in the USA

My uncle has a basic HS education and no real marketable skills. He's a custodian who belongs to a Union. For him, and people like him, I can see why they join.

I also worked for a company where the hourly people were all unionized. I don't know all of the details (wasn't a member) but my understanding was that they had no real negotiating power with the company - they were "collectivized" more for benefits than anything else. In general, the arrangement worked to both the company's favor AND the union's.

So - there are places where unions make some sense, or at least I can see why people belong to them.

In general, though, they're useless remnants of a system designed to resolve issues that disappeared decades ago.

Traditional management can’t coordinate something like that?

Count me skeptical. Such management might include cleaning ladies (and gentlemen) who made it good. They wouldn’t have to be ignoramuses.

Or maybe you are talking about something like a contract house?

A real union wouldn’t allow much, if any, competition.

I gotta tell ya, I only worked with them peripherally, so I don't have all of the particulars.

But a large percentage of the people worked unusual hours. The company required a lot of "ramping up" and "ramping down" of their employee base - for instance during their busy time the facility would be working three shifts, all out, for a month or two. Then within a matter of a week or so, the facility would be back down to basic 8-5 operations, or even just a skeleton crew over the holidays.

So, all of these "part-time" (I guess you could call them that) employees joined a "union" and paid dues into it. The union maintained benefits for all of the people on a year-round basis, regardless of whether the employees were on a full time, part time, or "no time" status. And that eliminated a headache for the company as well, and maintained a solid base of workers locally.

I probably don't have all of the specifics, but it made sense to me when one of the managers I was working with explained it.

Sounds almost like a union in name only. There are janitorial contract houses that do something similar, except they wouldn’t have exclusionary privileges in a geographic area like unions generally do. And the workers, however grunt and lowly, would be considered “management.”

I recall times/days in the early 1930s when my mother was working for 3-4 dollars a week. My father had died a few years earlier and left a mortgage for our home. My mother would come home all torn up emotionally because the union organizers were on her back giving her a hard time because she was doing piece work to get some food money. I have never forgotten the thuggery of the union organizing members. This is not to say that workers in those days did not need some organization to better their working conditions. However, I saw the need for unions fading out in the WWII when the need was for national survival instead of setting up socially destructive union bosses. Times have changed and there should not be any unions that operate outside of public, not administrators or crooked politicians, authority. This applies to all public unions including firemen, police people, and so called government employees/servants.

So sad when people are just trying to feed their kids (my grandfather had 10). So many of those thugs have no compassion; “it’s all about me” Many of the teachers care only about getting all they can for themselves and couldn’t care less for the people who are really suffering. I have a cousin who has worked for Kelloggs and make unbelievable money, yet every few years they have to ask for more; it’s never enough.
