What gets me is that these teachers, most who probably voted for Obama don't want to

Share the wealth,


Tighten their belts,

While I will have to pay or get fined by IRS
edit on 112828p://bFriday2011 by Stormdancer777 because: (no reason given)

You should have health care insurance or access to REAL medical care, you are a human being and we are the richest nation on this Earth.

You seem to think the way to solve the problem of health care is to make it a luxurious item.

We had the option to make a public option here - Obama did what he did to appease you and other conservatives who fear socialistic solutions, you watched it happen.

No we are NOT the richest nation on earth. We are a nation kept kept afloat by a decades old ponzi scheme. Spending trillions upon trillions of dollars we borrow but can never pay back. At least in our lifetime....

Wisconsin legislators aren't the first to walk out, leave town

(CNN) -- This week's bitter budget showdown in Wisconsin isn't the first time state legislators have fled a state, left a building or refused to show when votes were called.

The "Killer Ds" and the "Texas 11," for example, skedaddled from Texas in 2003 to prevent consideration of a redistricting bill.

In 1839, a young Abraham Lincoln, serving as a Whig in the Illinois House, jumped out of the building in a futile bid to prevent Democrats from getting a quorum to vote on a banks bill.

Members of the 1891 Florida Senate went to Georgia in a bid to prevent a quorum for the election of a U.S. senator.

And in 1994, Republican members of the California Assembly refused to show up for floor sessions in an effort to prevent Democrats from electing Willie Brown as speaker with less than a majority vote.

Nothing all that new here

If I told my boss to #%! it and didn't show up i'd be fired.

My advice to both of you is to join a union so that you can have health insurance and your boss can't screw you over. It's really that simple.

Wisconsin Constitution

Article IV, §28
Oath of office. Section 28. Members of the legislature, and all officers, executive and judicial, except such inferior officers as may be by law exempted, shall before they enter upon the duties of their respective offices, take and subscribe an oath or affirmation to support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of Wisconsin, and faithfully to discharge the duties of their respective offices to the best of their ability.

Impeach the lot of them, for violating their oaths of office.
