From Deficit to Surplus—Scott Walker Has Kicked Butt

Yet Scott Walker has been attacked, harassed, and physically threatened for manning up to the unions and doing what had to be done. Why would any public worker believe they have a God-given right to live better than the people who are paying their wages?

An Old RINO, a Convicted Felon and Some Union Goons

Tuesday was a big night for our side. From RINO Dick Lugar in Indiana going down hard in a humiliating defeat after sitting his butt in the Senate for 36 years to Kathleen Falk in Wisconsin, public union handmaiden, getting absolutely whomped in the Democrat primary gubernatorial recall debacle, it was a very good night to be rooting for the conservative home team.

Wisconsin Teachers’ Union Laying Off Staff

The Wisconsin Education Association, the state’s largest teachers’ union, announced that it is laying off 40% of its staff (42 employees). Now that Wisconsin’s teachers are no longer forced to pay union dues to unions they haven’t voluntarily joined, the WEA’s coffers have been coughing up a big deficit for the union bosses. But it’s not just the loss of union dues that is hurting these solidarity shakedown artists, it’s also the loss of the exclusive right to provide healthcare and medical coverage for its teachers.

Governor Scott Walker and the Recall: On, Wisconsin!

I woke up to great news this morning on discovering that the Democrat-controlled public unions had failed in their attempt to take over the Wisconsin State Senate chamber. Hurrah! Power to the People! We have won yet another hard-fought battle in the war to restore America. Despite spending over $30 million dollars and busing in scores of Astroturf agitators from out-of-state, the unions and their Democrat comrades were still unable to bully and belie their way to victory. Continue reading

I guess Council 24 of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees thought all they had to do was lean on the little lady and she’d fold like a house of cards.
