    Here is what Mr. Walker a REPUBLICAN Gov. did :" Walker's law, passed in March 2011, only allowed for collective bargaining on wage increases no greater than the rate of inflation. All other issues, including workplace safety, vacation, health benefits, could no longer be bargained for."

    Part of the response from Judge Juan Colas:" the judge said sections of the law "single out and encumber the rights of those employees who choose union membership and representation solely because of that association and therefore infringe upon the rights of free speech and association guaranteed by both the Wisconsin and United States Constitutions."

    May Scott Walker [republican] rot in Hell............

    And it will get appealed.

    Once again, a judge attempts to change the will of the people by making a partisan judgement of the Constitution, which by the way makes no reference to Union agreements/contracts.

    Hey mid a lake,
    Maybe you should rot in hell.

    My governor was elected not once, but TWICE! As hard as you union jags tried to get rid of him, as much money as you all wasted, he is still here. Despite all of your crooked tactics, despite dragging homeless derelicts to the polls,despite the lies, governor Walker still stands.

    Smarten up dummy, the hard working taxpayers of Wisconsin are finished with you and your ilk.The scab has been peeled back and the wound is exposed. That wound is public employee union benefits. We have had enough and were not going to PAY it anymore!

    One last question, hypocrate. Since act 10 went into effect and you are no longer required to pay the union dues, do you?

    C,mon guys! Mid is the victim of a cold, cruel world and we all know how bad it sucks to be a victim. Show some compassion. The next time you have a Pity Party, invite him over.

    Dear Steve

    "As we have said from day one, Scott Walker's attempt to silence the union men and women of Wisconsin's public sector was an immoral, unjust and illegal power grab," said Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.


    Steve this is why we are a country of laws for people that think like you. I wish you well in the future but I do hope you change the bitterness you harbor on workers rights. Also your anger for someone who might make a few more greenbacks than you do. It really is not very American and is disgusting.

    GS

    PS to Steve Glad you know more than a sitting judge and a 27 page ruling. Please note where he refers to the law breaking state law and rights provided by the Constitution of the United States of America.

    PS to mid a lake,

    Remember, judge Juan Colas is just another liberal activist Dane county(Madison) judge. He will be overturned like all the others.

    Sidebar to those of you unfamiliar with Wisconsin politics in the Scott Walker era.

    Duly elected legislature passes law

    Governor signs law

    Union crybabys file lawsuit in Dane county

    Piece of s**t Dane county judge strikes down law

    Ruling by piece of s**t Dane county judge overturned, and on we go.

    Anyone who receives one red cent of taxpayer money, in the form of a paycheck or bonus, SHOULD NOT be allowed to unionize or strike. If you do, YOUR FIRED!

    Just look at the crybaby's in Wisconsin and Chicago!!

    Many judges attempt to legislate from the bench, mostly with limited success.

    This one is no exception. A noted Dane county liberal with a history of taking sides rather than interpreting the law.

    It ain't over till the fat fireman squeals.

    THIS STATEMENT IS THE PURE TRUTH OF IT ALL!!!

    "The people spoke." "The majority voted for Walker."
    The majority passes laws, that does not mean they are constitutional. The majority of the South wanted slavery and unequal rights. That did not make it constitutional.

    From Reason.com about the decision:

    "The Illinois Policy Institute suggests that the point Judge Colas concedes — that collective bargaining by public employees "is no constitutional right" — is likely to get him reversed.

    In fact, the Supreme Court has recognized that public-sector unions are in a separate and more powerful position than private-sector unions largely because of the "special character of the employer" which is usually politically divided and divorced from the economic concerns of your average for-profit business. As such, they can be subjected to greater constraints.

    If Judge Colas' decision is politically motivated — and Governor Walker's office insists it is — so might be any higher-court ruling as the case is appealed.

    And while we know that public sentiment isn't supposed to enter into judicial decisions, it's worth noting that Reason found generally favorable opinions toward restrictions on public-sector unions among residents of the Badger State when we polled them earlier this year, and many respondents were disappointed that police and firefighters were exempted from its provisions.

    Oh, and since Judge Colas is so concerned about "distinct classes," let's not forget that there really are two classes in this country: those of us who produce, and the public employees who feed off us. The Wisconsin court decision was just the latest round in America's own version of class warfare."

    That sound like what I said to midalake when he was railing against Paul Ryan.

    -
    He also said:

    "The majority of the South wanted slavery and unequal rights. That did not make it constitutional."

    Perhaps not, but the SCOTUS said it was not unconstitutional when they wrote:

    Dred Scott v. Sanford, 60 US 393(1857).

    It took a civil war to end slavery, not a court.

    midalake, glad you took my advice to celebrate when I informed you of this setback for the people of Wisconsin, just don't get the idea it is over.

    Curious about one point of the judge's opinion where he said:
    "sections of the law "single out and encumber the rights of those employees who choose union membership and representation... .
    .
    Help me out here, perhaps my information is out-of-date. Last time I checked, Wisconsin was NOT a "right-to-work" state. For those not familiar with it, what that means is that if you are offered a job with a company that has been unionized...you are FORCED TO JOIN the union and subsequently...FORCED TO PAY THE UNION to keep your job. (FORCED....NO CHOICE).
    Has that changed in Wisconsin...???
    If it hasn't, then it would seem the basis for the judge's opnion is FALSE in it's inception since employees AREN'T ALLOWED TO CHOOSE UNION MEMBERSHIP....rather it is FORCED upon them.
    What did I miss....????

    I only hope for the people of Wisconsin that they remember in November how this liberal judge in all his liberal wisdom is trying to overturn the will of the people because "HE" knows better what's best for them. This same scenerio could happen again in the next four years if the state decides to vote in another four years of BAMI! You are a swing state and have a chance to make a big difference this year - DON'T lose sight of what could happen - get to the poles and vote him out!

    Once again it comes down to the takers vs the makers. At some point the makers will get fed up and quit making. And then there will be nothing to take!

    Is it "constitutional" that every time YOU want a pay increase, I have to pay for it?

    That is some very very rural judge trying to make law.

    We will see how far the "trying" goes

    Think that is bad. Just wait and see what happens if the Democrats ever take control of all factions of the state government. Then you will really see some pissing, and moaning.

    Hey mid a lake,

    Since you profess to be such an expert on our constitution, why don't you tell us all which ammendment guarantees anyone the right to collectivley bargain.

    Oh, let me guess, the same one that guarantees a woman the right to murder her unborn child?

    Madison hacks have never had, nor will they ever have the last word in anything!

    FYI to you out of staters. This judge, who is ruling on state and federal constitutional matters, is the same one you would face if you were charged with disorderly conduct in Dane county. And, if you signed the Walker recall, you would probably get off.Trust me, Antonin Scalia this lightweight aint.

    How Christian of you. What do you do next, strap on a suicide vest? Because someone disagrees with you, you become a raging beast and wish them all manner of harm. You are great Muslim material.
