I’ve been trying to get back to some “nice” here at blue cheddar headquarters. Today I say fugheddaboutit. The sensitive should turn away right now if they don’t want to see some R-rated language.
There was a story released by WUWM at 5:58 PM MON JULY 29 called Walker Says Collective Bargaining Limits Could Solve Other States’ Problems in which Walker says it might be time to expand Wisconsin Act 10 to public safety workers.
Then at 5AM today, Tuesday July 30, 2013, I ran into this:
Walker Says He Won’t Push For Ending Collective Bargaining For Police Or Firefighters
Walker is either market testing another assault on worker rights, he got something printed to send to his severely right of center donors, or else he is just being his usual arrogant megalomaniac prick self.
Supposedly what got this newsstory clusterfuck rolling was a query from an audience member where Walker was speaking in Milwaukee [Gee. Who was that somebody who asked the question? I wish the press had inquired.]
The mysterious audience member asked Governor Troll and/or Megalomaniac if “he would consider limiting the bargaining rights of first responders” and the next bits in the WUWM story go like this:
Walker says he feared doing so at first, in case they’d walk off the job and put public safety at risk. But now, he says the climate could be different.
“I think now for those areas, having seen that the world didn’t come to an end for other municipal employees and county employees, there might be a greater opening going forward, because they’d say, ‘hey, you know, things worked out,'” Walker says”
It “worked out” just grand for all the connivers who crave one-party control, no middle class, and public services ripe for shredding and privatizing.
