WALKER WINS, HITLER RAGES!!

Republican Governor Scott Walker won a decisive victory in Wisconsin yesterday; defeating Democrats and the national labor unions attempt to throw him out of office.

Walker has led the country in turning back the overweening power and privilege of Public Employee Unions. Bloated salaries and benefits payed-out to State and Municipal employees is bankrupting the States and cities. Successive Democrat Governors and Legislatures have made the Devil’s Bargain, giving away gilded benefits and salaries to Union workers (on the average far higher than those paid to private-sector employees) in return for Union campaign donations and support.

Civil Servants are supposed to serve the public; not lord it over them. But over time, the roles have become reversed; with the public seen by Unions and their hand-picked politicians as a cash-cow to be milked till dry.

Well, in most states the cow has run dry!

Walker earned the ire and brought down upon himself the wrath of the national labor establishment by daring to balance the budget by scaling back some of these benefits to reasonable proportions; the only fiscally responsible way. Democrats screamed for raising taxes on the citizens of Wisconsin yet again. But that well has been sucked empty!

Last year, the national Unions turned out their members in record numbers to protest Walker and the Republican State Senate’s legislation. For months, the protesters nearly shut down the Wisconsin State House; essentially “occupying” the building!

But what Walker did to restore fiscal solvency was hardly draconian. Walker called on Public Employee Union members to pay a small co-pay on their lavish insurance packages; less in fact than the co-pays demanded on average from the rest of us in our own private employer sponsored health care plans. Even more controversial was Walker’s actions to strip the Unions of their collective bargaining rights; necessary to get rid of non-productive teachers and civil servants in over-staffed and over-funded bureaucracies. It should be noted that Federal Employees do not have collective bargaining rights; something not often pointed out when President Obama decries Governor Walker’s actions.

Walker’s victory will embolden Governors (and, hopefully, our next President) to take on the entrenched power of the Unions and the Democrat establishment; and restore fiscal sanity and solvency to our State governments.

Congratulations, Governor Walker! You have won the first great battle to save our future!

Word of Walker’s victory has reached the Devil’s General Staff in Hell!  See Hitler (Satan’s ground commander) rage as word of the Democrat’s  defeat in Wisconsin reaches his subterranean/subterrestrial headquarters!

  2. Barry, it was the collective bargaining which was the sticking point, not the co-pay.

    and i am not sure i can call a plan that seems to revole around reducing aid to the poor to give tax breaks for the rich and no raised taxs, no matter what, exactly sane. pretically not when i watch how poorly asuterity has worked in europe, and in US history.

    • Austerity has been working in Europe, David. Germany and Sweden have greatly reduced their social spending and balanced their budgets. Countries like Greece and France, which resist the pain of austerity, are (in the case of Greece) spiraling into fiscal disaster; while France will soon follow, I predict.
      There are no “tax breaks for the rich”, David. That’s Democrat talking points, and are specious. Especially when talking about Wisc.’s state budget…
      You can’t tax the rich enough to pay for what progressives want: even if the so-called Buffet Rule were imposed, it would collect only $30 billion more; hardly enough to pay for the Democrats/Obama’s $1 trillion a year budget increases… It would barely pay for the tuition reductions Obama has proposed!
      The problem with Socialism is that it only works so long as you have other people’s money to steal. Once that is gone, it collapses under its own financial weight. That’s what has happened in Europe…. And will likely happen here if Obama has his way. Which, I predict, he will not.

  3. “Austerity has been working in Europe, David. Germany and Sweden have greatly reduced their social spending and balanced their budgets. ”
    Gemany didn’t have a problem to begin with, and sweden tried it while the rest of the world was booming (oh and just counter your later arguement about Socialism… yeah puting one of the more Socialist countries in europe as a success story kind of nukes that arguement) what about oh i don’t know Ireland, which was doing everything right until this hit, with the decline went into red, tried austerity like a good little soilder, yeah guess what happened next.
    also germany is starting to run into problems

    “Countries like Greece and France, which resist the pain of austerity, are (in the case of Greece) spiraling into fiscal disaster; while France will soon follow, I predict.”
    ummm, Greece tried Austerity, you know part of that whole deal to get loans, suppost to boost market confandenice and all… yeah that didn’t happen, in fact if anything the oppisite has happened and things have gotten bad enough people voted in a fringe party to and reverse it (which is now going back to elections as that party couldn’t manage to govern)

    “There are no “tax breaks for the rich”, David. That’s Democrat talking points, and are specious. Especially when talking about Wisc.’s state budget…”
    I agree on the Wisc. state budget, the only cuts he made where some business tax cuts, but those where rather minor (under 200 million),

    “You can’t tax the rich enough to pay for what progressives want: even if the so-called Buffet Rule were imposed, it would collect only $30 billion more; hardly enough to pay for the Democrats/Obama’s $1 trillion a year budget increases… It would barely pay for the tuition reductions Obama has proposed!”
    nore did i ask too, and i can see cuts being made with out objection, but when that is ALL your policy is made of, when the only option you concider is too slice the safety net poeple are counting on more then ever, while fighting regulations to try and stop this from happening again, trying to push a pipeline through areas which could cause catastrophic damage if it leaked, and blocking even minor, by your own words, tax increase on millionares… i think there might be something wrong with your priorities
    and quite frankly as 93 percent of income growth in 2010 went to top 1 percent, asking them to pay a higher percent then their secretaries isn’t something i would call truely unreasonable. hell i am not going to be radical and ask them to pay what they would have in 1986! (sarcasm)
    also concidering the increased cost for the tuition reductions Obama proposed is 7 billion…i am pretty sure 30 billion covers it, heck covers it 4 times over

    “The problem with Socialism is that it only works so long as you have other people’s money to steal. Once that is gone, it collapses under its own financial weight. That’s what has happened in Europe…. And will likely happen here if Obama has his way. Which, I predict, he will not.”
    as for the cause, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-16290598, and if it is “Socialism” for the richest country on earth to give a damn about its own people in need… that is saying something about the values of the Republican party.

    oh and 1 more bit, if it is all about government spending and borrowing… why is spain in so much trouble and germany one of the strongest?

    • Ok, David, riddle me this: If you agree that taxing the rich more is not the answer (and it isn’t); and you aren’t for cutting the budget (austerity) and living within our means: then what is your solution?
      Greece never did try austerity. The government proposed it, as part of the agreement whereby the EU would continue bailing them out; and the Greek people immediately started the current civil disorder.
      Germany and Sweden are not socialist; Sweden has become increasingly free-market capitalist over the last two decades. Both are the most productive countries in Europe because their people are hard working; something no one has accused the Greeks of Spanish of being.
      Cutting spending isn’t about destroying the social safety net: that’s just Democrat/”Pogressive” talking points (again). Its cutting wasteful, redundant, unsuccessful programs that have drained the treasury and done nothing to help people out of poverty.
      The safety net was never ment to be a hammock; yet that’s what it is for millions who would rather collect a government check than go out and get or create work.
      The Eurozone may collapse as an economic and political entity, because the southern Europeans are unwilling to give up living in their hammocks; and the northern Europeans are increasingly unwilling to subsidize them. Much as, in Wisc., working taxpayers are tired of do-good liberals giving their money away to those who won’t work…

      • “Ok, David, riddle me this: If you agree that taxing the rich more is not the answer (and it isn’t); and you aren’t for cutting the budget (austerity) and living within our means: then what is your solution?”
        no, i said ONLY taxing the rich and ONLY cuting programs for the poor is not an answer, go after waste but go after all waste (incluing in the militery), cut down on the earmarks, raise taxs on the rich back to clinton levels( pertically trading gains taxs) and if you think food stamps are such a massive luxary, i dare you to try and live on them like several local politicans have, guess what they all failed. or did you mean job training, cause i mean how could that be useful in a stagment job market? or maybe it is pell grants that are the waste? or is it medicare that is the problem? what with its lower cost per person i can see how republicans don’t like it, while i agree that there is a danger of fraud in it, that seems to me a problem corrected better by ensuring more adutits then a straight 10% cut of funding.

        “Greece never did try austerity. The government proposed it, as part of the agreement whereby the EU would continue bailing them out; and the Greek people immediately started the current civil disorder.”
        government PASSED it which is the reason for the current civil disorder you mean, but yes they are deeply unpopular

        “Germany and Sweden are not socialist; Sweden has become increasingly free-market capitalist over the last two decades. Both are the most productive countries in Europe because their people are hard working; something no one has accused the Greeks of Spanish of being.”
        ummm Sweden is less socialist then it was yes, but is still more socialist then the US by good margins. also Germany isn’t stupid enough to pull counter productive layoffs. and yes both people are very hard working.

        “Cutting spending isn’t about destroying the social safety net: that’s just Democrat/”Pogressive” talking points (again). Its cutting wasteful, redundant, unsuccessful programs that have drained the treasury and done nothing to help people out of poverty.”
        really? again why don’t you go ahead and name these “wasteful, redundant and unsuccessful programs” ..i think you will find they all deal with low income people.

        “The safety net was never ment to be a hammock; yet that’s what it is for millions who would rather collect a government check than go out and get or create work.”
        yes because there is so much work out there to find. you do have a point that there are times when it is in a persons self-interest not to return to work as they can’t make as much working as they would if they stayed home

        The Eurozone may collapse as an economic and political entity, because the southern Europeans are unwilling to give up living in their hammocks; and the northern Europeans are increasingly unwilling to subsidize them.”
        …wow. ok A northern europe were never pertically willing to help subidize south europe, hell the only reason they helped as much as they did as it was their own necks on the line as well. the Eurozone will collapse as it was incrediblely poorly thought out. while it proved a great boon to germany, it was incrediblly foolish move for southern europe and its inflexiblity is giving ireland problems.
        and lets point this out, it is SPAIN that was clean coming into the crisses, NOT germany which was the FIRST (well along with italy but italy doesn’t count) to break the rules about how much it could borrow, this is a major point austerity plans don’t adress.

        “Much as, in Wisc., working taxpayers are tired of do-good liberals giving their money away to those who won’t work…”
        yes so happy they pulled a recall less then 2 years in, he defeated it but that doesn’t make him excatly a picture of success in my book.

  4. Great summation of yesterday’s victory! My favorite line from the video was “Let’s go to Sacramento, it’s the last bastion of imbeciles. They’ll give us free hookers and cocaine as long as we say it’s for the children.” Reminds me of the story of GM workers getting the union to provide a stripper trailer so they could get lap dances on their breaks.
