    LOL. So you're wondering why no "righters" are criticizing a Republican governor for doing something that there's no evidence of him doing?

    Nice.

    This is my thing with this. Unions flat out lied on there TV commercials here in Ohio over SB5 which was Ohio's version of the Wisconsin bill.

    All these laws said was it gives the elected people the power to control what unions can get paid in salary and benefits.

    Some of the union guys I work with don't think the voters or the elected officials should have the say in what they get paid only the courts or (collective bargaining which is tipped in the union favor)

    So Red Reign and Warhorse:

    What is wrong with treating a union how the private sector is treated? That is all these laws are doing. Making it a level playing field.

    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” - Gamalie the Pharisee - Addressing the Sanhedrin regarding the new group called Christians

    No evidence?? The cold hard fact is that Walker certainly has been running all over the country drumming up outstate donations. The only question is...has he been doing on the Wisconsin taxpayers' dime?

    900,000 people signing a pettition doesn't mean they all think Wisconsin is in the process of being destroyed....you know that, right?

    Exactly! You want righters to criticize him for traveling at the expense of the taxpayers, yet you admit there's no evidence of him doing so. So, what exactly are you wanting righters to criticize him for?

    Sorry I thought you meant there was no evidence of him traveling at all.

    You do know that you and Chi seem to have overlooked that I originally said..."Wisconsin is being destroyed on a number of different fronts." If people don't agree with that in general, why would they have signed the petition?

    1. Because they are partisan hacks.
    2. See number one.

    Something is not right on this poll headline and I call BS on this one. Real Clear politics reports the poll finding as 48-47 walker leading.

    Additionally as far as I can remember whenever a Republican is even in a poll where it is 'registered voters' rather than 'likely voters' they usually are ahead by 3-5 points come election day. Also if you try and link to the Marquette polling website you can't (at least I can't get the thing to load) so i cannot figure out the methodology on the poll.

    Here is the link to RCP

    150 bucks proudly came from me and once the dem primary is settled Walker will proudly get more from me, if I can help hammer the final stake into the heart of the Wisconsin Union Thugs I will do what I can.

    Some because they believe WI is being destroyed, see #1 above.

    Others because they are libs and want the pub out, see #1 above.

    Others because they are public union members and don't like what Walker is doing, despite him being elected fairly and doing what he said he would do, see #2 above.

    The facts from FBLS say he's on the right track and economic indicators support that.

    What "other fronts" are you referring to?
