From
AP. The Wisconsin Republicans, by separating the anti-middle
class/anti-labor component from what had been the Budget Reform Bill
into two separate bills -- 1.) a budget bill that requires a quorum and
2.) a non-financial bill that does not require a quorum -- the fascist,
corporatizing Republicans and all who vote for and thus support their
intentions have declared open civil war on all workers in the state and
on the democratic process itself. They passed the two, including the
latter one which strips the state's employees of their bargaining
rights.   





Perhaps the only method immediately available for those of us who
support the middle-class, those in the lower economic strata, and
democratic principles to demonstrate our anger and applied resistance is
to make it clearly known we will be spending zero vacation time in
Wisconsin, and to the limits we can, will not knowingly purchase any
Wisconsin product or commodity.





Reread Reverend Martin Niemöller's poem that begins: "First they came
for the socialists, but I did not speak out -- Because I was not a
socialist. then they came for the Trade Unionists, but I did not speak
out -- Because I was not a Trade Unionist . . ."





Friends . . . they have now come for the Trade Unionists. They,
including everyone who votes for them, have declared war upon us all! We
either stand up . . . or we lay down with the pigs, to also eat their
slop.

 

An "Old Army Vet" and liberal, qua liberal, with a passion for open inquiry in a neverending quest for truth unpoisoned by religious superstitions. Per Voltaire: "He who can lead you to believe an absurdity can lead you to commit an atrocity."
