    As most of you know, there has been an ongoing union protest in Wisconsin because Governor Scott Walker wants to curb union power by limiting collective bargaining to wages and end the 'Forced Union' state. This will help create a better business environment (Right-to-work) for Wisconsin by being more attractive to businesses. This is a direct hit to the Union 'cashcow' because they can no longer force anyone to pay them dues.


    The majority of Union members, including Democrats do not believe their dues should be used for politicking yet the Unions spend millions upon millions of their dollars to elect and campaign for Democrats per year.


    Unions across the country are having rallies to show their support for the Wisconsin Unions. Many Tea Party and other Conservative organizations have decided to show their support for Walker with counter rallies.


    WILL YOU JOIN THEM?


    Below is a list of where all of the rallies will be taking place across the country by date, location and time. Some Walker support rallies may have already been planned, some will be up to YOU to plan. Will you do it?

    Don't see a time/place for the counter demonstration in Illinois.

    Must be because Quinn has already promised his union cronies a thousand new state jobs while the state has a $13-$17 billion deficit. Now wonder they're quiet. This week he'll likely try to borrow the money to pay their salaries too.

    Just remember, if you leave your job to attend these protests, or counter protests, you should be fired, and replaced.

    I beg to differ, stlfln, but tea partiers don't need to steal from the taxpayers to attend rallies. You seem to have them confused with your fellow liberal teacher union pals. It's all about the children- LOL

    I fail to see how a rally held in support of the Wisconsin governor can help if it's not held where the voters in Wisconsin can see them. What you t-partiers need to do is send money. Make up a good collection say equal to the amount of money you spent on Palins ghost written book and send it to the Wisconsin governor to help with the debt. Those chedder heads need some cheese and cold cuts to go with the crackers on their plate so they can plan the next stratedgy to rid the world of unions and all the extra expenses they incurr on a state government.

    Shelly,

    I was just repeating the BS on these threads. I understand the point of taxpayers money!

    DO NOT ASSUME ANYTHING!

    I am not a Democrat! I am not a Republican! I am anti-union!

    DO NOT CATAGORIZE ME!

    I have no "PALS" because of political affiliation, or any other BS!

    Politics suck! Government sucks! Most people suck!

    This is why I hate talking about politics, it brings out the worst in people!

    Its all about the people- LOL. People do not care about other people, unless they know them!

    Politicians are all about lining there cronies pockets with OUR money. It does not matter what party!

    I do not believe in politiclal parties (Categorization). People should be elected on there views only, otherwise they are influenced to vote down party lines. That is wrong!

    You probably did not notice. I did not call you any names, or reference you to anything deragatory, or even say I disagreed with you. Now you know why most people suck!

    Whats the matter Shelly, get called out on your typical degrading posts so you delete them so you don't look like a bad person ???????? LOL

    It doesn't matter if your union, non-union, a liberal or a conservative if there is no money in the coffers you need to make concessions. No one is any better than anyone else.

    It is not individual though is it? Human nature in general seems to be to defend our opinions and beliefs by degrading, or belittling someone that they disagree with. I'm sorry for shouting, but that is why I find political talk irritating. Political views are exactly that. Nothing one person can say to another person is going to change there view anyway, as far as politics are concerned. It is the blame game. These things are what I am referring to when I say "Most people suck". I am done, have a great day, really.

    DAN,

    What does Palins "ghost written" book have to do with Wisconsins union demonstrations?? Please feel free to blame Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Tron's kitty for some of this. I'm sure your 10 cent logic can make it all relevant somehow.



    Geeezzzz.

    Daddy-- read the post I made and you will see that what I was referring to was the amount of money you should collect and send to support the Governor of Wisconsin. I don't care what you spent on her ghost written book that is a mute point. my point was that the legislature can't operate without a forum and since the democrats are absent those boys can sit around and have a little picnic and you guys can support their cause by supplying the cheese and meats for those crackers. In other words "Put your money where your mouth is and pony up a donation for those anti-union anti-labor and anti-fair law makers. Like i said if the law they are about to pass goes thru the court system I doubt it's get past the first level. Dan

    How can anybody on here be stupid enough to think that cutting wages for the middle class can POSSIBLY get this economy going? By all apparent posts no one here is old enough to remember the great depression where we sat for 5 years until FDR and fellow crooks finally figured out that people need to have money in order for an economy to work. The solution was a JOBS PROGRAM FOR MONEY. Dont get me wrong because Obama took millions from special interest groups, look it up here:
    http://www.opensecrets.org/ and we know that Mcsame took millions in bribe money too look it up.
    Here, I will post this again so everyone here can stop with the bs about "their" superior candidate http://www.opensecrets.org/ Do you think ANY of these crooks support anybody but the corporations that bribe them? Give me a break !!!

    Deeg, There are a lot of economists that feel FDR's actions prolonged the depression by merely circulatiing money in the economy without promoting private growth and GNP.

    It doesn't matter what we say on this site anyway. There is no money left. If they don't control it, massive layoffs will follow. Who does that help?

    You don't see where there is a rally in NY because they will raise your taxes if you go to such a rally. Besides, you'll freeze to death out there.

    Heres the bribe money Mcsame and Obamanocio took. Scroll down and look at the bribe money Obamanocio took. There is no difference between these corporate spokesmen. By the way the peoples "tea party" is bank rolled by the billionaire Koch brothers. These published facts are courtesy of OpenSecrets.Org. This is the "democracy" the democrats and republicans have foisted on most Americans who are to lazy to do a little home work. And we think casting a vote for these paid off crooks makes a difference? CNN our "most trusted news source" dosent publish these facts. Now why dont we working class stop calling each other "union members and lefties and right wing nuts" and get real and do what the Egyptians have done.
