    If you want to see pure, unadulterated greed, take a look at the Wisconsin protesters

    Protesting for your rights as a citizen is un-American

    WI's governor should issue the ultimatum:

    Go to work, or lose your jobs.

    I'm sure he's having a staff look into the Worst Case Legal Implications.

    Yes, he should.

    The teachers are defauding the state by claiming sick leave and then showing up at protests. All of them should be fired. Period.

    And the doctors who are providing fake written excuses should be fined or loose their licenses. They are in violation of the standards which require proper evaluations and records of exams.

    I understand the anger at public employees. For many, such as Willow Tree, are too stupid to pass a civil service test and lacking any skills are green with envy.

    Others have bought the propaganda, and joined the herd bleating the emotion stirred by the power elite. An elite motivated by avarice and aided in this coup by NewsCorp and the GOP, pitting working people against working people, in an effort to divide and conquer the hoi polloi - their enemy.

    Thinking, rational and non-callous people understand our nation's, and the world's, economies are in trouble - only in the United States is the cause of this ecomomic malaise blamed on one group of people. It is easy to scapegoat, but the RW should be careful of the goat chosen and the consequences should they actually get what their emotions desire.

    Public and private sector unions have been on the radar, a target of the 'conservative' movement since Reagan was elected and thus far been successful. The success has resulted in a shrinking middleclass, an increase in the numbers of Americans living below the poverty line and the creation of a class of billionaires insulated from 98% of the American People.

    This is not sustainable. As Amercians we all need to pull together. Public unions have offered consessions, yet compromise is not in the lexicon of the New Right; divide and conquer in a zero sum game is the plan of elected Republicans and those who control them.

    Whoa, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here. The taxpayer is well served by a public employee who has sufficient job security to do his assigned work well and fairly, without regard to the political ties of the member of the public he is dealing with. Nobody wants a "to the victor goes the spoils" system. We had such a thing here, and as a result, there is very little Democratic-owned property in my county now paying its fair share of property taxes.

    I say EITHER union protection OR civil service protection -- but not both. Frankly, civil service makes more sense to me.

    I love these stupid little liberal comments that have nothing to do with anything. Basically they are a giant neon sign pointing to empty space

    Bull shit.

    Even FDR realized that unions for public employees are a very bad construct.
