By now, everyone will have heard or seen the transcript of fake phone
call to Gov. Walker from someone successfully masquerading as one of
the infamous Koch brothers of Texas. Walker gave away the store about
his REAL motivation for trying to take away the collective bargaining
rights of the state's public workers.
Of course Jon Stuart was right on it. Hilarious!
Soooo, Gov, next time you get a call from one of your corporate
masters, be sure to check their ID before opening your "heart" to them
Those greedy Unioners agreed to go along with everything the Guv asked
them to except the right to collective bargain in the future.
The Gov, on the other hand, considered sending in troublemakers to
blend in with the protesters. Recon they were too peaceful for him. He
decided not to do it but not because it was wrong and somebody might
get hurt but because it might backfire on him.
The Guv is a skunk!!
Heh! The unions can give up EVERTHING, but as long as collective bargaining
remains, they can get it all back in a week.
As for sending in "troublemakers," it may have been considered, but
Republicans just don't do that sort of thing.
The core of the problem is the collective bargaining, which is totally
unsuited to the public sector. In the case of the private sector, you
have two sides which have seperate interests. In the case of the
public sector, you have two sides which have common interests.
These unions contribute to the politicians campaigns and control
voting blocks that can mean the difference between them getting
elected or voted out of office. Does the union at a company
get the CEO elected? Contribute to his campaign? Of course
not. But in the case of public workers, that is exactly what is
So, the politicians give away the store to keep themselves in
power. And even worse, much of it is done by giving away
benefits that only show up as a financial impact 20 years later.
You want to be able to retire at 50 with 80% pay? Wink, wink.
My campaign could use another $200K and make sure your
union guys all vote for me..... And so it goes, with the taxpayers
drowning. That's the real story, not some BS fake call.
The unions are so arrogant they are running a radio ad in NYC
that makes demands of the mayor. In the process they bich
about how they claim they will have to work unitl 65. Then it
continues on that next the govt will make the rest of us work
to 75. WTF? Isn't that unbelievable? I mean right there in
their own ad, they are setting themselves up as better than
everone else. It includes crap like unions built this country.
I suppose those of us that worked elsewhere, for
companies like Intel and Apple did nothing at all..... And
if we can do it without unions, why should I give a rat's ass
about a union hog?
