    We won the battle of Madison boys!!! Unions are going bye bye!! Wisconsin is the start. Many states will follow with this first step already having been taken by the courageous Gov. Walker, a man who will go down in history as one of the many political heroes who went up against the violent union thugs for the sake of the nations financial stability.

    We won, and now, as unions diminish, so will the billions they flood into Democratic fundraising, setting the state for countless victories in the future for conservatives!!!

    Celebrate!!!

    We havent won anything. The Democrats in the State Senate are still on the lamb. Just because the State House has voted on the measure doesnt mean we've won anything.

    True, it isn't official yet. But really, whats gonna happen? The Dem's gonna stay gone forever? Are the Republicans gonna let their childish tactic work and give in?

    No. The Reps have the momentum and support. They even have the sympathy of many for trying to balance a budget.

    This is like a Super Bowl where one team is up 52-7, but there is still 5:00 on the clock. The result is settled, but the game isn't quite over. That is all.

    You may win the battle in Wisconsin and lose the war

    Republicans are firmly establishing themselves as anti-worker in a time when Amercans overwhelmingly support the right to collective bargaining

    Even Chris Christie supports collective bargaining

    What have the Koch brothers won?

    "American politicians don't care much about voters with moderate incomes.

    "Princeton political scientist Larry Bartels studied the voting behavior of US senators in the early '90s and discovered that they respond far more to the desires of high-income groups than to anyone else. By itself, that's not a surprise.

    "He also found that Republicans don't respond at all to the desires of voters with modest incomes. Maybe that's not a surprise, either.

    "But this should be: Bartels found that Democratic senators don't respond to the desires of these voters, either.

    "At all."

    It took quite a bit of work for unions to get the 40 hour workweek, child labor laws, workplace safety and hundreds of other worker rights that we now take for granted

    Couldn't have done it without collective bargaining

    Well, it is 1/2 of a victory and a certain defeat as soon as the Dems return.

    i imagine that when 90% of the population is living on slave wages in a shanty and are forced to buy over priced goods at the company store and they all get black lung from working in the coal mines without any protection and their kids are forced to work 16 hours a day in ill-lit factories with rats running around and companies (to save a few dollars) go back to dumping toxic waste in oiur back yards conservatives will be REALLY HAPPY!

    If the Democrats were certain of victory, they wouldn't have run away from their jobs.
