    If depriving public sector workers of their collective bargaining rights is the solution, why do 8 of the 13 states that have adopted this approach face "larger budget shortfalls" than Wisconsin?

    I already got this information from some email lists and organizer friends. Unions from all over the country are organizing phone drives.

    I'm gonna bet that you're gonna hear "This mailbox is full" every time you try to call.

    if you don't live in Wisconsin, it really is none of your beeswax imo.

    the guy walker ain't running for a National gvt job, like president, is he? Why does he need to get pats on the back from you? You want him to do what you like and the HELL WITH the actual citizens affected in his state that he is suppose to represent?

    so what's the purpose of getting all of these emails from your " r.w. bosses", telling you to email the guy Walker and praise him? Is this like busing people to Florida from other states to protest the recount in Miami?

    sheesh....

    It's really none of your business to tell people what they should or shouldn't do.

    Didn't Unions across the country come out to support the Union in WI? Why, yes, I believe they did. Well, if they can - so can we. I've emailed the Gov. to tell him I support him. And... I'm about to forward it out to friends and family.

    that's exactly what it is. they know that 60% of people in wisconsin are opposed to union busting. they know that a campaign has started to remind the state legislators of that. they know that walker's approval rating is in the dumpster.

    they just can't stand it.... because as usual, the big mouthed, ugly deadenders on the radical right hate not getting their way.... you see how they've acted for the last two years. *shrug*

    they're nothing more than noise.

    The people of WI voted him into office, on a stance of a fiscal clampdown. They did do that, right? Elected him? On the policy that he is now implementing?

    The right have acted differently to the big mouthed, ugly droolers from the left did for the previous eight? How, exactly?

    Balance, mo chara, balance. Don't bitch about the right for doing what the left spent the previous 2 admins doing. It looks hypocritical.

    1. he lied. he never said he was going to bust the teachers' union while rewarding the unions that donated to HIS campaign. Had he done so, he'd have lost.

    2. this has nothing to do with the budget. the unions have already agreed to give-backs. this is about union busting.

    i could go on and on about the differences in how MAINSTREAM democrats acted for the prior eight years, but that would allow you to deflect from the actual point of THIS thread.
