    You were all so OUTRAGED that Wisconsin Republicans were working to eliminate collective Bargaining. Why not a peep when Massachusetts does it?

    “We are going to fight this thing to the bitter end,’’ Robert J. Haynes, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, told the Boston Globe last night. “Massachusetts is not the place that takes collective bargaining away from public employees.’’

    Why do Republicans hate American workers having rights?

    Oh, I forgot, Republicans are "owned" by corporations. Hope that helps them get jobs. Hasn't worked so far.

    Yep. Only Republicans are "owned" by corporations. Meanwhile...the CEO of GE/NBC sits on freakin' Obama's admin board!! And just so happens that GE/NBC paid ZERO dollars in taxes this year. Hmmm. But I'm sure Obama is absolutely uninfluenced by GE/NBC, right?


    GySgt, I'll answer your question: Because a right winger did it in Wisky. Thats why. Liberals are open to ANY idea so long as a Democrat proposes it. The "Mandatory Kick a Puppy Day" bill would be supported if Obama was the one proposing it. The "Ban on Kicking Puppies in the Balls" bill would be called racist if a GOP member proposed it. Simple as that.

    Wonder what these liberal moonbats are going to say when Gov. Moonbeam Brown here in Cali tries to do it?

    'cause he's been talking about it!

    Because liberals are inconsistent and partisan.

    But that doesn’t undermine or negate the serious issue of destroying collective bargaining rights.
