A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party and a CEO are sitting at a table.

As I knew, Karl was originally from Wisconsin, so we have actual people from Wisconsin in on the debate - from his FB friends, so farm they are on the wrong side, but I am posting their side, not just my raging spiels.

A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies, looks at the tea partier and says,"look out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie".
With thanks to Craig

    • Sandra Kuehn Gregoire Actually the union guy would grab the whole plate demand all the cookies or he would destroy them and the plate and file grievances against the other two for trying to take what was 'rightfully' his. :)

    • Gershon Wolf Actually the union guy would have let the cookies burn in the oven because he got off at 5:00 on the button, but of course, I still support the unions. (literally) The GOP, the CEOs and overpaid scumbag apointees, the tea party and the governor DO NOT have the workers' best interest at heart. They are pigs. The unions, in general, also get greedy, like anyone else in a negotiation. But that is what negotiating is all about. To remove someones RIGHT to negotiate is FASCISM.
      Remember, they brought us overtime pay, the WEEKEND, equal pay for women and minorities, decent hours for truckers so they don't fall asleep behind the wheel and die and kill others, and got your grandma out of the sweat shop, fire safety code at the workplace is from them (remember the shot of the sweatshop girls jumping out of a burning building because they were locked into their workplace by the boss?) Thank God for the unions. Fire fighters, cops, garbagemen, teachers, have a right to negotiate and strike. Obama is busy right now talking about "the best and brightest" in public service. That is a negotiation. Not forcing someone to accept whatever comes form the pigs who have proven themselves over and over to be greedy pig scumbags. i.e. the CEO from AIG who had his own petting zoo and private jet while he was denying claims that were suppose to save the lives of people who had been paying their premiums regularly. These governmental, tea party and GOP pigs are cut from the same cloth.

      Teachers union in WI sitting on $316 million slush fund culled from premiums paid by state under 'cost of healthcare' and used to fund candidates of their choice. I'm a teacher married to a police officer and neither of us support the union thuggery holding WI taxpayers hostage. Property taxes in WI are outrageous and most of that goes to finance these golden benefits state employees have. If you think corporations are greedy, you should listen to these union workers. Unions and colluding school boards/municipalities are slamming through contract negotiations for massive wage/benefit increases before municipalities get option to control costs. But they're all SAYING they are willing to pay their share; however, their ACTIONS are the direct opposite.

      Gershon Wolf So the alternative is to revoke their negotiating "privilege"? Isn't it a democratic right? My Dad was a teacher all his life, and he made shitty money for the work he put in, while piggies became millionaires on his insurance premiums and taxes. Even so, I didn't hear him complaining about the unions. I think he appreciated that they were negotiating for his retirement fund. And making sure he didn't get replaced by a young teacher willing to work for less, the moment he had his first medical issue? Don't you read the papers?
