    For those of you who claim the WI recall will have little impact nationwide, please do keep your heads in the sand..........

    This is just the start. No matter how much you whine about the poor abused union member having some "right" [please provide the source in our Bill of Rights for that wrong-assed assumption] to the out-of-control benefits so many now receive, you fail to remember that there's always, always, always a limit. The unions have reached that limit. Now it's the turn of the non-union working middle class who are being driven into the ditch paying for these "90% of income" pension benefits.

    2 California cities voters approve pension cuts
    By The Associated Press

    Voters in two major California cities overwhelmingly approved measures to cut retirement benefits for city workers Tuesday in contests being closely watched as states and local governments throughout the country struggle with mounting pension obligations.

    In San Diego, 68 percent voted in favor of Proposition B while 32 percent were opposed. More than of precincts reported.

    The margin in San Jose was even wider, with 71 percent in favor of Measure B and 29 percent opposed. Nearly half of precincts reported.

    San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed called the vote a victory for fiscal reform.

    So another sector of the American working class gets poorer.

    Why would you be glad about that?

    Shut your piehole idiot.

    Walker's governorship is creating poorer people?

    the worm has turned..........:coffee:


    When your public policy is based soley on good intentions and not results, your ideology ultimately gets its ass booted. Thats what's happening all across the country. Only the minority thinks going deeper into the shitter is a good idea. This is still America and people, on balance, dont want the statists dictating their lives.

    Why don't you start a thread on what you think he's implying.

    Should go as well as your cannon fodder thread, imbecile.

    The same way that the GOP has been creating poor people since Reagan. Holding down the wages of the working people of this nation, cutting taxes for the very wealthy, and starting illegal wars.

    When someone will only get, perhaps, 50% of their salary [instead of 90] in pension benefits [which no other member of the working class gets], I would hardly consider that "getting poorer."

    I would say it helps levels the playing field for ALL sectors of the American working class.

    Sorry 'bout that. I realize you can't hear me with your head in the sand............

    Who are the "working people." Ditch diggers like you? If you're a miserable failure, that's America's fault how?

    The wealthy pay the majority of taxes, shitbrain. Need a chart?

    And speaking of illegal wars Obama has raging - why don't you fucking enlist?
