Warren in a comment to this post about the union protests in the Midwest:
There isn't any such thing as collective bargaining with public service unions. It's more like the children presenting a wish list to Santa (the Government) and Santa promising the the parents will pay up (we're the parents).
The more I think about it, the more I realize [that] the phrase "Public Service Union" must be the grandest example of oxymoron ever created — if not an outright example of Orwellian "Newspeak."
Another Quote of the Day below the fold.
From Mike's America:
Remember that Nancy Pelosi called the Tea Party and Town Hall protests "un-American" and only six weeks ago Obama stood up as the great uniter following the Tucson shooting and warned against the use of inciteful political rhetoric.
Now we see the left engaging in behavior that no Tea Party would even consider using and doing so with the full blessing of Obama, Pelosi, and the Dems.
Worse still, these teachers engaged in this illegal labor action claim it is in the best spirit of democracy.
Do we need to remind them that there was an election last November in which the same Tea Party tidal wave which swept the country was also a landslide in Wisconsin? Republicans swept state elections in Wisconsin running on a platform of fiscal responsibility.
Odd that Democrats' definition of democracy is in fact mob rule by a disgruntled minority.
I wonder if the Dems who are supporting mob rule in Wisconsin will also recognize the democratic demands next time a huge protest of Tea Partiers shows up in Washington demanding the ouster of Obama?
