Do You Recall what prominent Democrats said about Wisconsin?

Postby Marty » Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:38 pm

When Occupy, unions, and other groups stormed the Wisconsin capitol building earlier this year, victory over their capitalist oppressors was finally imminent.

Now in the wake of Scott Walker’s historic triumph, suddenly the recall election that they asked for doesn’t matter.

What gives?

Unions lost big even in California – in San Jose the pension reform Measure B won with 71% of the vote. In San Diego Proposition B, Comprehensive Pension Reform won with 67.68% of the vote. The State of California can’t do it because Moon bean is supported by Unions so the cities of California has to do!

"I often troll on liberal Web sites or listen to liberal radio and all I can say it that it is HILARIOUS to see how miserable Democrats are tonight. Talk about vitriolic rhetoric, vulgar name calling and hate speech. I can't help but laugh -- If they are this miserable and mad about Scott Walker, then wait for Obama loses in November."

? I'm all for getting out of debt. I'm for stopping abuses of the system. I also think politicians should cut back their pensions and medical benefits too in line with those government workers they want to cut back.

I just spent 2 months of my life working with a conservative supervisor in Lake County to defeat a marijuana initiative that would have opened up Lake County to marijuana growth that would make Humboldt County look like a growers prep school.

Last night it fell 66 to 34 ?%.

I think the government has been horse **** negotiators with unions from the beginning and the wife and I often shake our heads when we hear they are not satisfied with what they have.

Ours differences arise when you middle class guys defend the uber wealthy and say they pay their fair share. I have difficulty as to why you buy into that.

"Envy is a powerful emotion. Even more powerful than the emotional minefield that surrounded Bill Clinton when he reviewed his last batch of White House interns. Politicians use envy to get votes and power. And they keep that power by promising the envious that the envied will be punished: “The rich will pay their fair share of taxes if I have anything to do with it.” The truth is that the top 10% of income earners in this country pays almost 50% of all income taxes collected. I shudder to think what these job producers would be paying if our tax system were any more “fair.”

“You have heard, no doubt, that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Interestingly enough, our government’s own numbers show that many of the poor actually get richer, and that quite a few of the rich actually get poorer. But for the rich who do actually get richer, and the poor who remain poor .. there’s an explanation — a reason. The rich, you see, “keep doing the things that make them rich; while the poor keep doing the things that make them poor.” Voting Democrat!

Interesting Greg
You're for getting out of debt?
Then why would you vote in a President who clearly ran on a Socialist agenda?

You then indicate abuses in the system, but then supported/voted for Obama
Who clearly supports redistribution of wealth.
If that not abuse I don't know what is...

Tax the wealthy?
Look up the distribution of tax revenues and who pays what/percentage and
You'll have your answer.
This class warfare B.S is a result of poor leadership, and clearly doesn't define
A path communicating what's fiscally wrong in this country.
