So the Unions were out in force in Madison yesterday protesting Gov. Walker's attempts to keep Wisconsin fiscally solvent. Since most Union members in Wisconsin are Leftists, they have no clue how an economy really works, and they're more than happy to watch Wisconsin go into debt rather than accept one iota of cuts to their public pensions. Speeches and rallies have been predictable in nature - inane, bumper-sticker chanting and threats of violence to Walker and others. Michelle Malkin has a round up of posts. It's disgusting. This state is billions in the hole, but the public labor unions can't be bothered to care about that. They want their fucking money, and they'll gut this state to get it. They want their fucking money, and they'll fuck over every private tax-paying citizen in order to get it. Fuck them. Fuck them with a chainsaw.
And what really chaps my hide is the teachers unions. I guess about half the teachers called in sick in order to go protest, and more teachers pushed their kids to go protest, even though the kids don't even know what they're protesting for. Given the state of Wisconsin schools and the "education" the kids get, I'd love to see every one of those teachers fired. I can't remember where I saw it, but someone else pointed out that given the fact each child represents $10,000 per year in government spending, that means a classroom of 25, which is reasonable, represents $250,000 a year in spending. One quarter of a million dollars.
Where the fuck is all that money going?
