David Brody: What kind of stories have you seen about some folks really kind of getting in your face about this?
Governor Scott Walker: “Well, even more so my personal home where my kids, my parents still live. I have thousands of people bussed in to my home in Wauwatosa where I’ve got two high school sons living, and I’ve got parents in their 70s. Last year, my 16 year old and my mother in her 70s were at a grocery store and got yelled at. I’ve had my kids targeted on Facebook; we’ve had all those sorts of things. Now, thankfully for every one of them, there’s tenfold people that come up to me at a factory or a farm or small business and say, hey Governor, me and my family are praying for you. That never makes the news.”
Here you have a politician that is doing the peoples work with great success. What are the consequences he faces when he minimizes the stranglehold of public sector unions who have corrupted the system at the cost of all taxpayers, even their own members, ridicule and demeaning demonstrations by groups who are aligned with the liberals/ progressives. If you believe these groups are not funded and directed by the DNC you’re delirious at best. Walker has brought Wisconsin back from the road to Greece and he is vilified for his efforts. He ran on this and did what he said he would do and everyone seems shocked. Personally I think this country would be a whole lot better off if we had more public servants with the fortitude of Walker. I hope he wins the recall and is voted back into office for a couple of terms.
Sure the Tea Party supports him as do many Conservatives that want less government. One thing he’s being able to do is get the state back in the black. The Unions are the ones making the demands on the state. They have been spoiled and have fat pensions. And they are fat pensions by my standard. Where is the state going to get the money to pay those benefits and pensions?????
What doesn’t make any sense is that you liberals think that we can borrow and borrow and borrow and borrow. What happens when the loans are no longer available, what do we do, tax the rich at 100%? Maybe we should print money, but then the dollar goes way down in value and we have inflation like in the Weimar Republic.
If a bunch of Tea-Party people went to a Democratic Governors home and protested and terrorized that governors children, the press would be on it like white on rice. Newsweek and the New York Times, ABC, NBC CBS, CNN, MSNBC and Even FOX NEWS would make it a major frigging issue, implying felonious harassment and violation of civil rights… You’d have the Democratic Governors children crying on camera.
Your governor is the most hated governor in the state because the media, the unions and Democrats cater to the dumb.
In fact there are more teachers presently employed, their union made concessions to improve healthcare because of the change of status. Nothing that was passed was onerously serious as all the fart-wagon hysterics at the capital all said it was going to be.
De-elect this governor and become the Greece of the Midwest… All that Wisconsin charm, the lakes, the beer, the forests, the businesses, the industry become a part of a leftist state where taxes will continue to rise and every time a union is told it might be getting out of hand, it will shut down the capital, infiltrate, stink it up like they did the last time and hold the taxpayers and students hostage…
Rewarding bad behavior perpetuates it…
Here’s to a Free Work state where if Unions charge you and represent you, they do it by the individual’s choice, not by force of law and thuggery.
I hope Walker survives this recall election and takes the next step to get the state on the road to be a right to work state. You know what a right to work state is??? You know what the Weimar Republic was???
