Ever since I posted about Michael Moore showing up on the Wisconsin socialist bandwagon, I’ve been swamped with comments from the Union thugs themselves.. I find it somewhat flattering that they would voice their opinions here since changing my mind on this is pretty much not going to happen..
You can see some of the comments if you want HERE (I say some because some were not allowed because they were so “Civil”)
Basically it’s the same “We’re the middle class” B.S we’ve heard across the net during the protests. I fear these clowns will never understand the issue. So let me help you out here.
First off: You are NOT representing the middle class. You are representing your union bosses. Richard Trumpka is very pleased at your temper tantrum in Wisconsin, but MOST Americans see it as ridiculous, childish, and are very happy Scott Walker stuck to his guns.
Secondly: The real issue isn’t totally about your pay package or your “Collective Bargaining” The real underlying issue is your unions supporting a particular party and doing it with ALL taxpayer money. Unions especially PUBLIC SECTOR Unions support DEMOCRATS because democrats are “the Workers Party.” The facts don’t mesh with that assertion. The Democrats have a long history of over reaching when it comes to business. They over regulate, they over tax and they expect the businesses to foot the bill for their pet projects and KEEP STATE UNIONS UNTOUCHED.
What happens as I explained to one comment maker here at A&P is:
Businessmen are going to keep their bottom line if possible, that means when their costs go up, either jobs get cut, salaries get cut, and/or prices go up. Those are all ways to keep a business in the black. Democrats are okay with the government in the RED, but real life doesn’t work that way.
So what the Unions have done is vote for folks that demonize businesses. They have caused unemployment to remain high across the nation. NOW in Wisconsin someone dares to ask them to feel the pain too? How ridiculous is that….Sarcasm.
Third: America has seen this temper tantrum in Wisconsin and they see a group of morons that would rather keep everything they have without question than to keep 1500 of their brethren employed. They would rather see more people unemployed than accept the reality that is a budget crisis brought on by those they elected and offer to make concessions.
Americans also know that this “Collective Bargaining” issue that is called “union busting” by those in the streets of Madison is a faux argument. State unions have in the past offered cuts and to help with health care costs only to “Bargain” for more stuff in other areas. That is NOT helping with the budget crisis and it doesn’t help cut costs. Since the state unions DON’T bargain in good faith, the removal of this “Collective” is paramount in the budget solution.
fourth: Scott Walker had a couple of options, he could have cut welfare, laid off thousands of state workers, and increase taxes on businesses… Cutting welfare would have been pretty messy, would the unions have hit the streets for that? He could have laid off thousands, would the unions have taken to the streets in such mass? He could have increased taxes on businesses, when companies left Wisconsin and took those jobs with them, we would be in a bigger mess in a year. So genius’s exactly what do you want?
This whole thing stinks, but to me, the protesters in Madison stunk the debate up and lost a lot of folks that may have been on the fence. The union thugs, the whiners, and the FLEEBAGGERS acted horrendous and I wish Walker would have fired every one of the teachers. PD, FD and SEIU morons in the square. Lay em all off.
Profit is a bad word for these union thugs ( PUBLIC SECTOR ) Any company that makes a profit and it’s owner owns a big house is making too much money and should be required to give it to his workers. YOU have a right to work for whoever pays you the most for your skill, A businessman has the right to find someone that will work for least amount for the same skill… he also has the right to MOVE his place of business to another state or country if he feels the state or country is hurting his ability to remain profitable.
Ever heard of ROI? Return on investment. IF Wisconsin were a business, The states population would be the shareholders. The shareholders are paying the salaries of the Unions and they are getting LITTLE ROI. Sub-par teachers that are getting large salaries that we can’t get rid of for example. What does that do? that creates MORE DEMOCRAT VOTERS… Bottom line is you clowns were out there to support Richard Trumpka’s agenda and his large salary. Remember folks like Trumpka get paid real well to watch you guys suffer…. Sad really.
