    I had a feeling yesterday's "break" would take a lot of the wind out of their sales, and it apparently has.

    I suspect it will pick back up again tomorrow, as the Governor begins sending out the pink slips. Supposedly 2000 to be laid off this week, unless they get a quorum first.

    And Democrats should be blamed for every single one of those pink slips. If they had not run like children, stayed and voted, those pink slips would not have gone out.

    Democrats are costing the middle class jobs. It's on their shoulders. The R governor found a way to afford these employees without layoffs or higher taxes, but Dem's cried like children about it. Now? Pink slips in the mail. Good job Dems.

    It's going to be interesting to listen to the spin from this episode come the next elections in Wisconsin. Democrats will rail about the Republicans destroying their system and Republicans will rail about the greed of the public employees and teachers. Should be a lively old time there in Wisconsin leading up to the next election. Wonder if anyone will mention the fact that the Democratic Senators all fled the State like spoiled little children... "Let me make the rules or I won't play the game..". I used to hear this on the playground all the time as a kid. Never thought I would see it in action from adult elected officials who only have a job because someone elected them into office. I think they should all be immediately fired if it was possible to do that.

    Has anyone started a recall petition? I know Wisconsin Law allows for it after 1 year of service, and I seem to remember reading that 4 (maybe more) of the 14 met that qualification.

    I already said I expect it to pick back up again tomorrow, as the pink slips begin to go out.

    But there is no question they've taken the morning off today:

    Taking "Rights from Americans??

    Jeeze. I've never seen in the Constitution that Collective Bargaining was a Right??

    You'll have to dig right in and show me where it says that TDM.

    I'll wait.
