By Patty On March 10th, 2011

It’s not pretty. They lost the November election. They’re in the minorityin Wisconsin. They are trying to force their will with mob-like tactics, intimidation and death threats.

  1. The bully boy tactics should hurt them for a long time.

    You don’t get your way by a permanent occupation of the voting chamber, or by hiding out in another state to avoid your elected duty to represent your constituents in the legislature.

    I don’t know which tactic I dislike more.

  2. Did you see the latest trick pulled by the repuli baggers, they do cover themselves with glory

  3. Expliquez, s’il vous plait

  4. I agree that the tactics of denying a forum by hiding out out of state are improper and occupying the chamber also counterproductive.

  5. They ignored the laws of Wisconsin and tried to pass th bill anyway, watch your local lawyer

  6. Which law of Wisconsin did they ignore?

  7. Seems Canada has no desire to pollute it’s airwaves with bullshit

  8. The law of public meetings


  9. Rachel Maddow? 🙂

    Here. Let’s see what someone other Keith Olbermann’s replacement thinks, shall we?

    Even Ezra Klein – no conservative, he – thinks that what Walker did is legitimate. And fair…demonstrating that democracy works:


  10. section 13 of the Wisconsin, allows the legislators to remove senators and reps for abandonment of their seat. At anytime all the democrats could have been removed.

  11. Looks like an American version of the State funded leftist fascist goup UAF (Unite against Fascism)?

  12. Oh the utter irony of it all, i just love this bit .. ” They’re in the minorityin Wisconsin.”

    I thought the Left loved minorities, well now they are one? it was only matter of time, ‘First they came for the Jews, and all that ‘

  13. Ronald Reagan 1980 “These are the values inspiring those brave workers in Poland. The values that have inspired other dissidents under Communist domination. They remind us that where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost. ”

  14. Fews: This is about Public Sector Unions – not all unions….PUBLIC. Public Sector unions.

    1. Private sector unions get their benefits from management. Both management and employees have a place at the negotiating table. Not perfect, but an equitable arrangement.

    2. Public sector unions get their benefits from elected representatives who decide how much public employees should be paid. Public Sector Unions – with money given to them by the taxpayer – finance and elect these representatives who pass laws granting Public Sector Unions bigger and better pieces of the the taxpayer pie. In the case of the Public Sector Unions, the private taxpayer has no place at the negotiating table. It’s unfair.

  15. In the case of the Public Sector Unions, the private taxpayer has no place at the negotiating table.

    Do you know what the phrase elected representatives means.

  16. In the case of Wisconsin an elected Democrat representative means

    someone who takes campaign contributions from the party he is supposedly negotiating with

    And they ” represent ” their constituency by avoiding votes and hiding from their fellow legislators

    That’s not democracy, and these guys could not have picked a worse strategy.

  17. You honestly can’t discern the difference between publically funded Unions – and the resulting monopoly of power and influence over tax dollars – and private unions?
