So the GOP pulled a fast one. Watching Rachael Maddow squirm and whine last night as this story broke was priceless. She described it as "pulling a rabbit out of a hat". Thats right. The GOP is full of winners, not whiners. The Dem's refused to come home and do their job, and instead fled and cried like angry 16 year old girls for a month. So....the GOP got it done and won. The union is busted, and likely will help the financial stability of the state of WI for decades. Also to follow....Idaho, Michigan, Ohio, Jersey, and others, are gonna follow. Maddow showed a chart in which something like 15-20 states have union-busting legislature ready to go, and some already passed it. This will not only break up the thuggish, parasite-like unions, but it will do two other great things: 1- FINALLY, the workers in those states will have a right to work. In other words, they'll have the FREEDOME TO CHOOSE to send union dues or not. Freedom of choice is a wonderful thing. The discriminatory, intolerant unions refused to work next to a non-union "scab" for decades. Now, the "scabs" will have the right to simply show up and do their job....unlike Wisconsin Democrats. 2- Without the mandatory union dues, a huge percentage of the people won't voluntarily send money. Why would they? The Dept of Labor ensures fair labor conditions now. Unions are obsolete. They are ONLY in place as a fundraiser for the Democratic Party, and soon that is gonna be over. And #2 is the reason Dems and MSNBC types are so enraged. They don't give two craps about a 30 year old math teacher. They care about the Democratic Party becoming drastically under-funded over the next 5-20 years and the GOP, with new allowances for corporations to spend money on candidates, having a massive financial advantage in the future. This spells doom for the Dems. And they are terrified. I said 1.5 years ago that regardless of ideology, just pure tactics, Republicans are just better at this shit. They're better politicians. They're better at just winning. They are the types who were the high school football captains. Dems are the types that played art and music games through high school. 2 different types of people. And it's showing. The GOP won, and quite possibly set up victory for decades to come. We shall see. But this is a huge first step. Bravo to the WI Governor and Senate for having the guts to stand up to the hordes of whiners and get the people's work done.
