I worked on a post last night about the brutal gang rape – let’s call it what it is—of Laura Logan, a lefty CBS reporter who was no doubt shocked to discover that Cairo’s Muslim, “freedom-loving” sub-humans hate her and everything about her. More on that tomorrow.
Like everyone else I’ve watched with intense, well, hope the peoples’ burgeoning anger and action directed at labor unions across the country.
Sparked by the tea party movement, this quiet revolution is now in a real fight, and it isn’t in D.C.; the Lexington and Concord of this rebellion can be found in New Jersey and Wisconsin.
And the opening volleys fired at the union threat to this nation’s economy and political stability have come with great and determined accuracy by Jersey’s Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
A few days ago Walker, Madison Ranger—took on most of the left wing’s state’s government-funded unions by announcing that…
- all collective bargaining rights would be removed for state and local public employees starting July 1 (save wages).
- Future hikes can be no more than the consumer price index, unless voters approved a higher raise.
- Contracts are limited to one year and wages would be frozen until the next contract is settled.
- Public employers are prohibited from collecting union dues and members of collective bargaining units are not required to pay dues.
- Local law enforcement and fire employees, as well as state troopers and inspectors are exempt.
This is like manna from Heaven, a drought-ending rain, Obama with laryngitis…this is exactly what Real America has been craving for the last 50 years—straight talk about a widely-acknowledged crisis of mind-boggling proportions.
And then Walker doubled-down on the issued by executing the best move by a governor in recent memory:
(News item): When asked by a reporter what will happen if workers resist, Walker replied that he would call out the National Guard. He said that the National Guard is “prepared…for whatever the governor, their commander-in-chief, might call for. … I am fully prepared for whatever may happen.”
The left across the country immediately came apart and did the only thing they it’s capable of, carrying signs and banners (union shops of course), marching and chanting slogans that are just as easily at home in Cairo or Baghdad.
But wait, there’s (always) more with unions and their unindicted co-conspirators… democrats.
Whenever they lose, they want to change the Constitution, drag dead people to the polls, break legs, rewrite the rules, or just out and out attempt to thwart the will of the America people.
(Obviously the product a union teacher or one of her “students”.)
MADISON, Wis. (The Blaze/AP) — Police officers were dispatched Thursday to find Wisconsin state lawmakers who had apparently boycotted a vote on a sweeping bill that would strip most government workers of their collective bargaining rights.
The lawmakers, all Democrats in the state Senate, did not show up when they were ordered to attend a midday vote on the legislation. Republicans hold a 19-14 majority, but they need at least one Democrat to be present before taking a vote on the bill.
The proposal has been the focus of intense protests at the Statehouse for three days. As Republicans tried to begin Senate business Thursday, observers in the gallery screamed “Freedom! Democracy! Unions!”
“Freedom! Democracy! Unions!”
Interesting choice of words… never in history has freedom been associated with democracy or unions.
Christie, Walker, Bachman, Palin, Coulter, Limbaugh and very few others are providing the leadership for this patriot’s revolution; because they lead from the front, by example… something the GOP has failed to provide since Reagan’s day.
When do well, it goes a little something like this….
Bergen County (N.J.) Education Association put out an email praying for the death of Chris Christie several months ago; Later a union thugs called the Big Guy to apologize. Christie declined to speak on the phone invited her invite her for a one-one one on his turf.
Let’s get this straight… just because you donate a sizable chunk of your paycheck to socialist union thugs doesn’t make you or your job anymore important in this economy—especially now—than anyone else's.
What I hate most about unions is they, individually and collectively, would rather see this nation destroyed before they would give up one dollar in salary or benefits to help the rest of us save the country.
Based on that… the question must be, are they worthy of the title American?
Like those who refuses to stop at an accident, donate blood, vote, or lie to avoid jury duty... they are part of the problem, not the solution.
So, not just no… but Hell, No.
Being an American, a real American, requires a lot more than merely being born.
