Re: Unions took a hit

River Rat, once again, stop trying to put words in my mouth or assuming you know anything about my views. Feel free to voice your own opinions on issues, but do not assume you have my permission to state mine! As for some of the other comments. I totally agree both parties (and just about everyone e...

Re: Unions took a hit

Wow, River Rat, it's amazing how well you know me. The fact that you know I automatically disagree with all Republicans is amazing! Some fun facts for you before you assume you know anything about me in the future. I lean conservative. I tend to vote republican more often than not. I voted for Walke...

Re: Unions took a hit

Larry, Walker also said (on video) that he would work with the unions to get the budget cuts needed just before the last election. That would be very shortly before explaining his "Divide and Conquer" plan to his largest supporter. Based on his track record, I'd say he's going to say what ...

Re: Unions took a hit

And as far as the "cost" of the recall election. It's estimated that the recall could cost as much as $17 million. Considering Walker has raised $14.9 million from out of state sources (about 60% of all of his funding and despite commercials criticizing "out of state influence")....

Re: Unions took a hit

We've all heard you make the argument many times that a recall should only be done when someone has done something illegal, the basis I'm sure for your argument above that we should, "Wait for the next general election if you don't like him." However, a little research shows the authors of...

Re: Unions took a hit

I'd bet a lot of the union members voted for Barrett as well. That's already been shown to be the case in Dane county. And I wouldn't be quite so quick to claim Walker isn't like his cohorts in Illinois. A number of people that worked in the same office as he did are already charged with felonies an...

Re: Campground in Bradley Park?

Old Scout, I think one of the things that has been really hurting Tomahawk businesses is that so many of the campgrounds and resorts have closed. Not because they aren't making money, but because it's more profitable to sell of the land in individual chunks than as a whole. That's basically what hap...

If Walker was certain enough we wouldn't have Health Insurance Exchanges to turn away federal money to set it up why did he just sign a bill that makes it illegal for abortions to be covered by policies in said exchanges??? http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/govt-and-politics/walker-signs-slew-o...

Re: Gannett newspapers jounalists repremanded

We don't need to monitor spending of stolen union dues. The Wisconsin public employee never had it, never decided what to do with it, and they don't have it when they're at County Market. They don't have a choice. As I pointed out in the last message... Your line of thought means I should be able t...

Re: Gannett newspapers jounalists repremanded

I believe in empowering the public employee by giving them a choice, by making the money theirs. And once again, the employees control the union. They have rights within the union. It's an awful lot like how our government works. There are some people who don't want it and don't believe in taxes, e...

It is extremely OFFENSIVE to say otherwise. Again, based on your reasoning, YOUR employer should be able to control how you ...

Also, if they were just trying to make personal cases there would be a lot more coverage over the kid that got shot in Wisconsin. It's another unfortunate case, and realistically, one that no one should have been shot. An underage adult ran from a party that be was being broken up by the police. He ...
