I know, I know,
Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi issued a temporary restraining order Friday, barring the publication of a controversial new law that would sharply curtail collective bargaining for public employees.But that will now go to the Courts and they will lose. The Unions that is. Not to mention, that this very Ruling in illegal. But it will play out, and Wisconsin will win in the long run.

All that in just a second. First, the unions are losing big time, all across this country. The popular opinion of most Voters is that unions, which is just a siphon for Cash to the democrat Party, have over stayed their welcome. Most feel that Performance should dictate everything from Salaries, to actually keeping your job. Not "Collective Bargaining." You want proof of this. Check this out. According to the NY Post - Majority of New York City voters think teacher layoffs should be based on performance: poll. Yes New York City Voters. You can't get a more Liberal Town than New York City.
LIFO must go!Unions are WAY out numbered. But did you catch that one part? Read that again.
A whopping 78 percent of New York City voters said teacher layoffs should be based on performance, not the seniority-based "last-in, first out" law, a poll released today found.
Even 63 percent of voters in union households agree that layoffs should be based on merit, not LIFO, according to the Quinnipiac College survey.
Meanwhile 73 percent of voters said layoffs of cops, firefighters and other government workers should be determined by performance, not seniority. And a majority of voters in union households agree.
The results mirror the findings of a statewide poll released last month, which found that 85 percent of voters backed the elimination of LIFO.
Even 63 percent of voters in union households agree that layoffs should be based on merit, not LIFO, according to the Quinnipiac College survey.That is rank and file Union Members. Even THEY say Unions must go. New York folks. If New York Liberals feel this way, imagine, well, you don't have to. According to this, "85 percent of Voters backed the elimination" of Unions. 85 percent.
I know, LIFO stands for Last In, First Out. Or Seniority. But that IS one of the first things Unions fight for. They want Tenure for Teachers, Police, Firefighters. They want "Collective Bargaining." Which means they want to keep the ability they have to strong arm both the Private and Public Sector Employers to LIFO, Salaries, Medical Coverage, and Retirement Plans. They WANT total control over the Employer, and of course, all that money. The People are starting to see this for what it is. The People are saying ENOUGH.
Going to fill my cup. Be right back.
