    So much for the national revolution against the rich Michael Moore was talking about…

    16 days was 4 days past their required number of days to work over a 4 week stretch.

    They did pretty good, especially when you consider how lazy and stupid they are.

    That's the folks actually from Wisconsin remaining. Everyone else had to go home to their own state eventually. The unions were blowing their wad on a losing bet keeping that many people there. They have to save some money to try and get their boy re-elected next fall.

    Or we know we are winning:

    57% disapprove of Gov. Walker. A Rasmussen poll so you know he's fucking up huge.

    60% approve collective bargaining rights for public unions.

    57% of independents disapprove of Walker in Wisconsin.

    Facts.

    Another FACT:

    Efforts by governors to limit collective bargaining rights are motivated by a desire to reduce government costs rather than to weaken unions, voters say 47 - 41 percent.

    I wonder how many Cheese-Heads approve of raising taxes to pay for public employee pensions negotiated through collective bargaining?

    It would be great if even a single one of those people got to vote on the budget, or collective bargaining, or Scott Walker, anytime in the next two years, wouldn't it?!?!?
