I really pray so. A bad thing for the country as a whole IMHO. Oh...I forgot...unions are people too.

There's been a few blurbs in the news the last few days or so of Indiana lawmakers putting the Right to Work law back on the tracks again.  Which sparked that last five week walkout.

The Wisconsin governor (and other GOP) recall begun yesterday. Complete with demonstrators marching in his neighborhood in front of his private residence.

Can't say I'm a big fan of these "recall" laws. (And some other "public" voting laws like the one in Ohio over collective barging law.)

One thing I've always appreciated for our form of government versus say England (maybe all of Europe) has been stability for a set period versus popular emotional highs and lows.  I can see it in cases of gross criminal or moral activities.  Why would an elected official even try to do what they think is the right thing because it will anger those dipping into the public treasury.

Walker might be just another politician, but he seems to be trying to do the best things for the right reasons. This kind of stuff, when folks target people's families and especially kids....just ain't right. 

He is right IMHO about who folks want to run government...duly elected folks...or union thugs in cohort with pandering or crooked polyticks (my words..not his exact).

It will not be good if any of those Wisconsin officials are successfully recalled.

What really surprised me was the statement that a recall should only be used for "criminal" conduct. Wow. Maybe they had a conservative temp writing the op-ed.

I'd have to guess that Tom Barrett hacked off somebody at the paper.

Wisconsin unions see ranks drop ahead of recall vote | Fox News

Public-employee unions in Wisconsin have experienced a dramatic drop in membership -- by more than half for the second-biggest union -- since a law championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker sharply curtailed their ability to bargain over wages and working conditions.


I see Clinton is going to campaign for the Democrat in Wisconsin. And here I thought Wisconsin had enough cheese.

I just listened to a Wall Street Journal "video editorial" about the race. Interesting. I think the gal was from Wisconsin.  According to her...you wouldn't know the recall is about "collective bargaining and union rights".  Says this gal, the ads are all about the Republican's (Walkers)  "war on women" and the economy in general. More like a regular run-of-the-mill election.

Why?  Because she says, polls say only 12% of Wisconsin voters say collective bargaining is an important issue.  It's the economy they're worried about.

The dims are putting on a full court press with this war on women thing but I don't think it's gaining any traction beyond the usual suspects.

  Tonight was the first I'd heard they were using that against Walker in the recall.

I hope Walker comes through this ok.  The tactics and imported money and union actions against him have really ticked me off and  built my interest in his keeping his job.  From what I hear he currently looks pretty good for fending off the recall.

I hope he wins big but also that the effort soaks up a huge amount of the libs funds in the mean time.

Yes...they are predicting a close victory, but I'd sure like to see a really wide margin. The bigger the margin, the more the National Dims will sweat!

I predict a margin of 7% unless the dims get out the dead vote.
