    You are correct. I do have easy buttons to push. I am easily angered when I feel I am being attacked. My fire gets lit very quickly, but turns to a slow smolder rather quickly as well.

    I know I don't have any friends in Walker's state, but didn't he turn around the states economy? And isn't the state operating from a surplus for the first time in a long time?

    The ones that he scares the hell out of are the non-management, front line workers. You know, the ones that actually produce the products that make the businesses so successful. He started with the public workers unions, and since he got away with that, he will eventually go after busting the private sector unions as well. Driving wages and benefits down, or at least stagnating them, while the whole time making the CEO obscene amounts of bonuses and salaries.

    That is patently unture.

    Show one shred of evidence to support this claim.
    You can't, it doesn't exist!


    IN regard to obscene bonuses. look no further than the recent revelations about the bonuses for the VA and IRS management!!

    Let's see. Reagan broke the air traffic controllers. Public sector union. Shortly thereafter, companies such as IBP and John Morrell started breaking up the master agreements within the meat industry. 1980s, meatpackers were making $11 to $13 an hour. IBP and morrell broke the master agreements and went from these wages, to $6 and $8 respectively. Meatpackers today are making $13 to $15 dollars. 30 years later, wages are just getting back to 1980s levels. These union busting companies were supported by Governors just like Scott Walker. I know lots of people around the country in the meat industry, and they are scared of Governors of the same mindset as Walker. It's only a matter of time before big corporations start lobbying governors like him to help them bust up the unions. Some here have said that history repeats itself, i'd say that is a fair assessment. BTW, I lived through the entire IBP and Morrell union busting. How's that for ya?

    look at bonuses of private sectir company CEOs, those are obscene. My question is this. How can a company pay millions in bonuses to the CEOs, while telling the blue collar workers that the company is losing money and the workers neednto take concessions in wages and benefits to keep the company competetive.
