Thought I'd give this a bump and say that Ohio was mentioned last week. And someone also told me Colorado might be next. Any word from any other states? I think things may be percolating in a whole lot more places than we're aware of yet. I know Christie has pissed a lot of people off in NJ too.

I can understand Union's demanding better wages etc in Corporate Business.

But in the Government? Holy Cow!



The Corporation's blue pills are working well on you. 'Holy Cow', to paraphrase you.

The BIGGEST Corporation of them all is the US gov. Drop the blinkers from your eyes now!

They are the biggest employers, instituted as a corporation, run as a corporation, and have far more powers and influnences than the all corporations combined, with presidential Executive Orders that have impacts upon a nation to boot since the early 1900s!. The sacred Constitution was only a piece of paper, as the moron and war criminal Bush had admitted.

The current fight by the Unions are but a first salvo upon the biggest corporation of them all. They are not demanding higher wages. They are only fighting to prevent more teeth being pulled out from them. If they EVER become toothless, the nation will be lost to corporations, and every citizen a perpetual serf.

With their powers, they had enacted NAFTA, 'Free-trade', 'Globalisation', as well as a whole host of policies that had benefitted their corporation masters unawared by the common masses, selling them out to others as well as enslaving the rest of the world that even the foolish UN believed was 'uplifting' the poverty levels of 3rd world nations, without realizing they were worse off working under such conditions and would have been better off as farmers if they had not sold themselves and the land to work in sweatshops.

If the Unions fail in this battle, then there will be NO hope to battle the smaller horns of the corporate facist horns, for the dominant power, with its federal gov host and state executives acting in unison to cheat the working man - the backbone of all progressive economies - blind, will always have the backing of the bigger beast in charge. Institute martial laws or more HSA/gestapo-patriot acts to deem Unions as domestic terrorists.

WHEN!!!!, Oh when will you senile middle aged men be weaned of the blue pill addiction??????

It looks like Indiana maybe close to, according to this on Drudge.

Appears that the out-numbered Dems plan on leaving the state-too. They deserve to be voted out-if not arrested.

See what happens if you take off to another state-to avoid doing your job!

And why did corporations move over seas?

Cheaper labor.

Why?

Because of Unions.

I find it hypocritical and ironic that the Tea Party and other conservatives that are always so in favor of "Freedom" and less govt. control;
want to take away the rights of some people to gather together, organize and work for their own best interest and inturn give government even more control over those citizens.


How is my belief that government workers coming together as a whole to insist on the best benifits my tax money can offer, when all our tax money together is not enough to pay the bill, hypocritical? As long as these rules apply to all government workers including the gov. it is NOT hypocritical.



Without my union representation, I would have no health insurance, no retirement and no recourse if I'm hurt on the job. AFTRA/SAG Kickinass for the working class.


Ok, where does the money come from to pay for those things? That is a GREAT and wonderful thing, but what happens if the company, like most others, has a huge loss of income and has to choose between laying people off and cutting benifits? What do they choose? Or do you believe that they should just close their doors if they can not give everyone everything they want?


Working people can see that this isn't really about busting public service unions; it's about the GOPs plan to bust all unions and give control to the government and Big business so they can have absolute control over the citizens and institute corporate fascism. www.fascismusa.com...


I disagree. Working people understand BROKE means BROKE. They understand how to balance a check book, and even more so now than ever they understand how to reduce a budget.

There's a bit of information in this article about Ohio, as well as about Indiana and New Jersey.

dailycaller.com...

This is pretty interesting...


Walker said during a CBS interview last friday, “There are 314 fire and police unions in the state. Four of them endorsed me. All the rest endorsed my opponent.”

Yeah. Conciderimg the DNC helped bus people in…

I can see the connection.

I wish everyone had Texas's union laws.

In Texas, Unions can't donate anything to any political party.

That would solve the problem-or at least 75% of it. IMO.

Nail on Head!

Does not negate the fact that 310 unions supported the Democrat candidate.

Does not negate the fact that these same unions are protesting.

I don't have union representation, yet I have health insurance, retirement and recourse of I'm hurt on the job. You must live in a terribly oppressive country. Where is that, so I know never to move there?

This whole issue is going to get messy and clearly the left wing minions did not get the message to tone down the rhetoric.


Sometimes it's necessary to get out on the streets and "get a little bloody," a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.

Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.

"I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."


If they keeping pushing like this they are going to get way more than they bargained for. I hope they all lose their jobs and their coverage. Enough sucking off of the taxpayer tit.


Capuano made his remarks before a crowd of union members in Boston, along with other members of the state's congressional delegation. Massachusetts has an influential union population that could loom large over the 2012 Senate race. Capuano is considering getting in that race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next fall.

“This is going to be a struggle at least for the next two years. Let’s be serious about this. They’re not going to back down and we’re not going to back down. This is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” Capuano told union members.

Does he realize that he is speaking to an ever decreasing audience?? Amazing!!!!
