Forum Post: recall Koch's stooge Walker

A new poll from Wisconsin this week has right-wing Koch Brothers puppet
Gov. Scott Walker leading Democrat Tom Barrett by just one point.

This is the second poll in a row to show a one-point race -- a statistical tie -- and the latest in a long line of polls to show there are virtually no undecided voters left in this race.

It's a 48-47 race in Wisconsin and whoever best turns out their base on Election Day wins. It's that simple.

That's why we've put together a massive ground campaign to turn out Democratic voters. We're knocking on doors right now and, come June 5, we'll have knocked on 127,353 doors across the state.

Turning out the base is the most important thing we can do to win in Wisconsin. Election watchers and the media agree --

Opinion about the governor is fixed because most people have chosen sides and dug in. The undecided and ambivalent are few and far between...

Compared to the average incumbent, his public standing is almost impervious to news events, political developments and multi-million-dollar ad campaigns.

The good news for Walker is that he isn't hurt that much by bad news. The bad news is that he isn't helped that much by good news.

-Craig Gilbert, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Simply put: Walker is a hugely polarizing figure in Wisconsin and voters have already made up their minds about him. Now, we need to make sure the people who want him out of office get to the polls on June 5.

Most of the union's retirement plans arent keeping up with inflation, due to the banking cartel.

I'm with you. Walker is at the forefront of a republican war on American workers that is being repeated in many republican controlled states across the country. If the republicans would have some mercy on the american people we would have 4 million more citizens employed. We need public unions. They serve & represent all workers. Support OWS. Vote out anti union politicians

The recall ( booting ) of Walker and his crony's should send a clear message - support the people. Wisconsin is showing the way of insuring proper representation. Let us pray for a successful June 5th in the polls in Wisconsin.

We need all the help we can get.!

Yes we do. That is why I try to stay on issue's and leave politics out of the discussion other than for stating that the people need to fully participate and fully own the process of government. Support or confront issues on their merits or lack thereof. Same treatment and consideration goes for our elected officials.

[-] -1 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

Support the people? Yeah, the entrenched people that work for government. Booting Walker will be a warning to any politician that dares talk reform. The union wants would-be reformers to be stopped in their tracks. Yes, pray for people that work for government. Make those that don't simply dig a little deeper.

7,000 posts = nut, shut-in, or both. Maybe government worker explains it or just someone that barely payes taxes. Which is it, all of the above?

Let's all make ourselves worse off so that we can chip in more taxes so that government workers can increaese their income advantage over us that don't work for government. Makes sense, if you're nuts.

Wow - it took you two hours of thimkin to come up with that reply?

Though it is none of your business - I am retired - I am disabled and so somewhat home bound. This allows me to contribute a lot of time here.

Unions protect the worker by doing what we are trying to accomplish here - uniting individuals in common cause - as there is strength in numbers.

OH & BTW - go fuck yourself - I mean - please continue to do so - but perhaps you would be kind enough not to do it in public - anymore.

[-] -1 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

But government union workers just screw non-government workers that are made to carry them. They use the union private sector words, but in government it is just a scam.

Disabled? Mentally? Well, it does explain your posts. Disability claims are another scam. I guess things much be getting more dangerous because social security claims have spiked. If it isn't be scammed, I guess that is what you would have to think. Ha.

right, non-government workers need to unionize

[-] -2 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

It's hard to replicate the government union model. In the real world, the employees can't chose their own bosses to then sell out the owners. But in government, those supposed to look out for taxpyers don't choosing instead to obey their masters in the union. How obvious does the union in Wisconsin need to make itself?

[-] 2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

haven't kept up with Wisconsin

I am against the current non-union corporate model

[-] -2 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

That's fine. But unions outside government are fundamentally different than unions inside government. Government employees vote themselves their own compliant bosses. That's exactly what Wisconsin is about. The unions are outraged to finally have a boss they can't control. So, the workers signed petitions as voters to get him replaced.

[-] 2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

employee should chose their bosses in private companies

[-] -1 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

I have No doubt people like you think so. But you can do that all you want. Start a business and then turn it over to the employees. Just slide the keys across the table. But none of you are capable of that, so you want to do it with what someone else has already made. Creation comes first, re-distributors follow.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Either way you cut it Walkers still a jerk, that doesn't deserve the job.

"Compliant boss" LOL Yer an idiot.

[-] 0 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

That "jerk" is the only challenge the entrenched government unions have seen in years. Go ahead, have it your way. Elect the union stand-in. That's a great way to ensure government serves it's people and not just it's employees. You deserve to live in a place that's run by a union.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

What happened to his 250,000 jobs?

Ooops, they went negative. He's a lying jerk.

All your propaganda terms are just as idiotic. "entrenched", "compliant", "paying class", " government union".

Pure propaganda, each and every one.

Walkers a useless, lying, asshole, that couldn't win a dog catchers job without the Kochs money..

the san diego government has been moving to pull retire out from under their workers

[-] -1 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

Just another meanie that won't let the union loot the place. Reform doesn't go down easy against a group that developed the sense of entitlement developed by Wisconsin public unions. They'd hadn't heard "no" for so long long they didn't think it was possible.

But the bizarre part is when liberals without government jobs support them. Liberals choose teacher lay-offs to fund the huge retirement advantage of government workers over non-government workers. Maybe they' just too dumb to know it, but that's what's going on. More teachers are in Wisconsin classrooms today doing the actual job of teaching because of Walker. That's just a fact, but one that for some reason deeply upsets liberals.

SFB - any entity/organization needs to be policed by it's members. Any entity/organization is subject to being corrupted.

The thing is - not to deny it - but to fix it.

OH - and ow - you wound me so deeply.

NOT - fucking Brain Dead troll.

[-] -2 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

Public unions need to be policed by US. But that's not what they want. With the recall, the unions are trying to send a message: don't even think about reform.

Government unions ring the "union" dinner bell and dummies like you just thoughtlessly fall into line. It's extra stupid for OWS. Most of them will never work for government, but they want higher taxes and working families digging deeper to even further elevate government workers. It's simply dumb.

But I guessed right, you're barely a taxpayer, so you don't give a fuck. Of course you want bigger government. To you, it's free.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

The only higher taxes being proposed is for those who have been given an unneeded tax break - The wealthy - the obscenely wealthy. As well as cancellation of corporate welfare for things like fossil fuel who is pocketing billions in profits per quarter and systematically are bleeding the economy white.

The rethugs are standing in the way of these issues. They want to see the tax break end for the needy if it means that they don't have to make a change in the break to exclude the wealthy parasites.

Go blind march somewhere else - you are more than obvious in your intentions here. SFB.

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

I can tell you that those that make 350,000 are not part of the problem, and taxing them more is only masking over the deeper problems that got us here to begin with.

[-] -2 points by UnionsCare (-31) 2 years ago

That's funny. Many states have raised taxes, more smaller locales too. Besides that, many many more proposals have been supported by the unions naturally, to raise them even more. Your state has a mentally unstable governor that proposed a 10.9% bracket starting at only $150,000. For more successful people, he'd shove it up their asses for 13.9%. Illinois raised it's income tax from 3% to 5% without touching the unions. The unions ALWAYS side with taking more.

Of course, you couldn't care less as someone outside the paying class. Who wants more from government? Yours is among the first hands in the air because to you, it's free.
