        You must be a private bus driver who makes $9 per hr and I can understand your outrage. You probably did not finish HS and are stuck in a job that has no future. Teachers, for the most part, go to college for a minimum of 5 yrs., spending vast amounts of money, energy, and time to become certified. Could you teach physics, advanced placement classes? Please, tell me you are capable of this. You would be laughed out of the classroom. And what about those other degreed private professions you did not mention, such as doctors, attorneys, accountants, etc,? Would they work for teachers salarys? I think not. Maybe it's time to be a little more honest about why you are so upset about life.

      • The common denominator of leftist philosophy is that there’s always an enemy who is plotting to overthrow the benevolent socialism that Marx and Engels created. The general name of the enemy of the left is capitalism.

        Even Lenin admitted that socialism wouldn’t be accepted by western nations, that it had to be forced upon society by revolution. The USSR tried in many countries to foment political revolution. In Cuba, it succeeded. In other countries, not so much. North Korea was defeated when it attempted to invade South Korea. North Viet Nam was defeated in 1973 after it attempted to invade the Republic of Viet Nam. Thanks to the Socialist-Democrats in the USA, however, military support was withdrawn from the RVN and North Viet Nam was successful in a second invasion in 1975.

        Met with military defeat, the international socialists continue the fight to defeat capitalism. Obama is, and always was, a socialist. He feels the USA under capitalism is an imperialistic agressor nation and as such, must be “fundamentally transformed” into a socialist utopia.

        Don’t let the “race card” thing mean anything more than a diversion. Obama and his socialist minions are busy creating a hegemonic socialist federal government. The Tea Party understood that. Many Americans understood it in November 2010. What remains to be seen is the efficacy of the union uprising and Obama’s support of that revolution.

    • If there is any cosmic justice, you will spontaneously combust for using the words conservative, principled and Charles Johnson in the same sentence.
      On the matter of ending collective bargaining, collective extortion would be a more appropriate description. Government/public sector unions are a racket and arguably a criminal enterprise. Taxpayers – Republican and Democrat, conservative and liberal – collectively pay the salaries of government workers. Part of those salaries are then siphoned off – by government – as dues to the unions. The unions then take those dues and use them to buy Democrat politicians to give them anything they want – generating more salaries and dues. It’s the perfect racket – a self licking ice cream cone…an endless supply of money supplied largely by your opponents, against their will and without their say. And on the rare occasion they do express their say – as in the November elections – those same Democrat politicians can just refuse to play the game anymore and leave the state. Pretty brilliant strategy if you care nothing for rules or civil governance. Government unions need to be taken down with a wrecking ball.

    • Pay cut by Walker to help out? He's already cutting others' pay!

    • I agree spending needs alot of work and be brought under control. But where was all the deficit outcry before Obama came into office??!!!

      • Ditto...

      • I think this was brought up a year ago, and the answer was there was a outcry by many americans. We went to war and that cost the tax payer alot of money, which brought debt to the national level..the war did bring jobs though but still it doest balance out. But Were the tea party conservitives statred really to scream was when Obama added to the already over debt crisis in a rapid fashion..Most americans are on board with this..but my point is how many Wisconsin people and others around the states that support these protestors , where the ones at these tea party rallies screaming about putting debt on our kids. Now when the chips fall and they have to give up some red carpet deals now whos screaming the other chant!!! These real people that you and i elect to do the hard things like Walker is doing, we the people cruscify him for doing the right thing...People We are in DEBT..NO MONEY...The thing is he made cuts to the us government Wisconsin union employees and now wants to take there bargaining rights away...Well what can you bargain with if there is no money..LOL...These government union employees get better benefits and pay than a private sector union employee and we the tax payers pay for it...I say to the school teachers quit complaining when you make already 70 thousand dollars a yr and with red carpet benefits and pensions...that we the people pay for, when we dont even have that in our work places. Go back to school and teach our children not to act like you guys did in these protests is a SHAME to see some of these acts in the Wisconsin Capital...Crawling through windows to get in a police having to carrying some out...SHAME for our kids to see this..All in the name of MONEY>
