For all those who wonder what happened to the middle class.

ALEC happened.

"They're not Birthers, wackos, Christian nationalists, or particularly consumed by whether President Barack Obama is a Marxist or a socialist. Nevertheless they are steadfast conservatives hell bent on turning back the clock on the rights of workers; destroying what's left of organized labor, undermining struggles by non-union workers, and eliminating many of the achievements workers have fought for over the past seventy-five years."

No duopoly here folks, just a concerted and on going effort by the right wing.

The Koch's are "right" up there with them.

Why not just let the workers have their pensions, benefits and all and their SS too?

WTF is wrong with these people?

Oh yeah..............pleonexia.

Can we get a pill for that?

ALEC/Koch: busting unions for years!!

Walker even quotes John Engler's anti-union drive from all the way back in the 90's.

Engler, being a "formative" member of ALEC.

ALEC is a corporate lobby intent on turning the country into an even bigger corporate shithole than it already is.

Duopoly would imply that both political parties are in bed with them.

Are they?

The corporations that run ALEC are donating heavily to BOTH parties. Both parties take them with open arms.

Money talks.

We only come to realize this stuff when we dig deeper. But its scary, and its depressing, so I dont blame people from not wanting to.

Gotta be a tough pill to swallow. But the sooner we do, the sooner we can start promoting REAL reform.

Actually?

I think you are.

After all, you fully supported the liber(R)tarian co-option.

You were in agreement with ALEC and Scott's Florida voter purges.

You think the 99% are asses.

I could go on.

Wanna talk about your participation in gangbanger style attacks on this forums posters?

Wanna talk about your PR company?

You talk about how you want community, but you never talk about yours.

Then there's your decidedly anti-union stance on SO many issues.

Yep.........not at all unlike ALEC, or even CATO.
