We often refer to Democrats as the Party of Adolescence, but today they truly earned their name. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is trying to close the state's $3.6 billion budget shortfall, which is what he campaigned on. Addressing the issue means taking on t public unions, which has led to massive protests in Wisconsin attended by thousands of morons over the past three days. To avoid the issue, state Democratic lawmakers fled to the Best Western Clock Tower Resort in Rockford, Illinois, essentially playing hide-and-seek until they were caught. This seriously is not a joke. These cowards actually fled the state.
Only Democrats would stoop to such a pathetically low level. It's as if they didn't think anybody would find them. Maybe they were wearing sunglasses that kid in Big Daddy!
The issue comes down to the liberal sense of entitlement. Cut back on everything, but don't touch the unions is the mentality of a drone. Public sector unions also happen to be one of the biggest problems facing America. The protests in Wisconsin are coming from the teachers union, namely the National Education Association, which has a staunch history of promoting radical liberalism. Governor Walker's pushing to have union members, excluding police and fire fighters, to actually contribute to their Cadillac health care and pension plans that are bankrupting Wisconsin - and America.
Shuttling in the union thugs were non other than the Soviet Employees International Union (SEIU), the NEA, the AFL-CIO, and, wait for it, the undocumented President Obama's campaign arm, Organizing for America (OFA)! The group of agitators want better working conditions for their members. Translation: Unions care about one thing: the unions. This isn't the early 1900s in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle; there is no need for public sector unions. They even throw in the Scott Walker dressed as Hitler every once in a while.
The fun started when a bus left the capital building today. It was short bus filled with the Democratic state senators and they were fleeing the building to avoid voting on the measure. They needed at least one member to be present for the vote to take place, which didn't stand a chance of passing. And for their next magic trick, they disappeared. Wisconsin police had to pursue them.
Enter the Best Western Clock Tower Resort in Rockford, Illinois. This is where the group of degenerate Democratic lawmakers were found, likely quivering underneath the covers. They claimed to have left Wisconsin because "there are some jurisdictional issues that we're dealing with." That's a true statement - the Wisconsin lawmakers were in Illinois!
"The Senate is now under a call of the house, and we will try to find the members who decided not to show up for work today. We will stand informal pending the resolution of the call of the house."
The people of Wisconsin did not and are not standing up to Governor Walker's plan. A majority of these union thugs are Democratic operatives that seem to have all the time in the world to do everything except work. They really shed new light on the stereotypical lazy government bureaucrat. The insurrection in Wisconsin accounts for less than 1% of the state's population. The liberal media has done a good job of spinning the story, though.
Liberals have taken a few cues from Greece and France, both of which faced union protests over entitlements last year. For America, this is only going to get worse, especially with Obama as president because he supports the unions - they helped get him elected. These unions are violent, out of control, and, worst of all, private sector, productive citizens pay for their massive benefits and salaries, which are nearly double the average private sector employee.
Fire these thugs, every damn one of them. America's underemployment is about 19% and you can probably find someone who will actually be happy just to have a job. Many of the 25,000 no-talent ass-clowns are teachers. Is this really who parents want teaching their children? Worse yet, 1,100 teachers lied and called in sick in order to protest. That's a great example for the children.
