Default Because it gave me a good laugh

As I'm sure many of you have heard, there'* a bit of a ruckus in Wisconsin about the public unions. It would seem we are trend setters, ground zero if you will and this is the end of the middle class because the law stripping public unions of collective bargaining has been passed. Now, I'm not really sure how we are ground zero, or trend setters, considering there are 24 states with the same basic law, plus the federal unions have had this law in place sense 1978. But I just saw this video, and it made me laugh. Wonder how many public union members can say the same?

Dan, you have times where I scratch my head for just a moment and bust out laffing.........

It'* funny how the media played this out for shock value but we really didn't get to hear what Joe Wisconsin thinks of their Governments workers wanting to lift even more money out of their pockets when the state gov is so poor and the economy there so stale tax revenues continue to slide. The more I read of the whole thing, the more I like this Governor and his grit to take on a real crisis responsibly. Hope the Wis. public begins to see this as well. Their "essential workers" have them all but handcuffed and resort to basically thug tactics.

If you listen to the media, then everyone hates him. But if you ask around, it'* the other way around. Go figure.
