Walker 1- Unions 0

A federal judge has ruled Republican Gov. Scott Walker's controversial law stripping most public workers of nearly all their union rights is constitutional.

U.S. District Judge William Conley's decision Wednesday comes in a lawsuit Madison and Dane County workers filed in July 2011 alleging the law violated their constitutional right to freely assemble and equal protection because it imposes wage limits on union employees but none on non-union workers.

Conley wrote the law still allows workers to assemble and lets them speak; it simply doesn't allow employers to listen. As for the equal protection argument, the judge said the government can treat represented and non-represented employees differently.

Katy Lounsbury, one of the workers' attorneys, disagreed with the ruling but said she'd have to consult with her clients about an appeal.

Teachers in Kenosha, Wisconsin have voted to decertify their union, putting a halt to the organization's ability to bargain with the state on behalf of educators.

Kenosha teachers took advantage of the opportunity to jettison the union after Governor Scott Walker's successful implementation of Act 10, a law that limits what unions can bargain for on behalf of members.

In accordance with Act 10, unions must re-certify with members each year, and the deadline for recertification was August 30. Teachers in two of the state's other large districts, Milwaukee and Janesville, successfully re-certified, but members shot down the Kenosha union bid.

Kenosha, a city just south of Milwaukee, is the third largest school district in the state.

Since Act 10 took effect, union membership in Wisconsin has dropped from 13.3 percent to 11.2 percent.

As a result, union operatives have dragged Act 10 into court numerous times, but it has survived the legal challenges, the latest of which just concluded on September 11.

Governor Scott Walker successfully fought a recall effort in 2012, and much of that win was built on his successful budgeting policies, especially that of the Badger State's schools

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Where you been? Your union find out you been posting Libertarian crap on here while at work?

Scott Walker's Koch Connection Goes Bad

Goes bad? is that what you really posted mrignorant? Goes bad? The latest poll shows he will beat a Democrat challenger, he beat back the recall, union membership is falling, one union is voting to decertify, and the courts just upheld the law. I'd say that's a win-win-win for Walker.

And don't forget he's been mentioned as a possible 2016 candidate because of his success.

And for those unions who do such a good job and have people lining up to be member... the Wisconsin teachers union has continued to decline statewide.

I hadn't bothered to look at the links mrignorant posted because I recognized them as being years old, but this morning I looked at the one about the Koch connection going bad. As expected iit's from February of 2012 and has nothing to do with any new developments, in fact it includes this quote "Walker’s desperate attempt to defeat the recall election that more than one million Wisconsinites have demanded." Obviously the "desperate" attempt worked as Gov. Walker beat back the recall and since then has continued to flourish. So even without the Koch influence he seems to be doing okay. The same can't be said for mrignorant who continues to post stupid videos, links, and poorly done photoshop pics to only prove what an asshole he is.

60 highway bridges in Wisconsin listed as 'structurally deficient'
http://wsau.com/news/articles/2013/sep/16/60-highway-bridges-in-wisconsi...
Libertarian paradise!

FYI- I never photo-shopped any pictures (Too time consuming). Fred you started that here on SwampBubbles. You opened that Pandora's box. As for the videos the two posted here are actual recordings of the corrupt things going on in Wisconsin. Now as a child-of-Liberty I'd think you'd be concerned of what a few billionaires are doing to our Democracy.

The rest of the story......60 bridges in Wisconsin listed as "structuryally deficient" according to wol/Mrignorant , he refers to that as a LIbertarian paradise as though the deficiency happened just since Walker has been in office which is of course not just ignorant but ludicrous. According to Transportation For America Wisconsin ranks 36th among states with deficient bridges by percentage. Now which Libertarian paradises do you thing have a higher ranking? Well let's try Pennsylvania that bastion of Libertarianism which is #1. New York, Michigan, and the District of Columbia all rank higher than Wisconsin. http://t4america.org/resources/bridges/

I find it funny that to attack Gov. Walker he had to look for something as insignificant as structurally deficient bridges.

I would then ask why didn't the Obama stimulus back in '09 fix them? After all those were "shovel ready" jobs that "fixed our aging infrastructure".

Remember how that "saved or created" over a millions jobs?

I enjoyed hearing about it because I love fairy tales.

The "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" (AKA the Obama "stimulus package") PLAINLY SAID it's "objectives were to provide temporary relief programs for those most impacted by the recession and invest in infrastructure, education, health, and renewable energy. The approximate cost of the economic stimulus package was estimated to be $787 billion at the time of passage, later revised to $831 billion between 2009 and 2019"

"Invest in infrastructure"? Where did all those billions of dollars go? Why did American taxpayers foot the bill for billions of dollars to "invest in infrastructure" and all those bridges in Wisconsin are "structurally deficient" still? And the Obimbo Slush Fund and Union Payoff Package of 2009 happened TWO YEARS BEFORE WALKER WAS ELECTED!

ANOTHER SPECTACULAR FAILURE BY THE EMPTY SUIT, GOLFER-IN-CHIEF TOTAL FAILURE.

And, like a good little mindless butt sucking zealot, Wolfie IGNORES facts and tries to blame someone other than the Dimocraps.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

There's no such thing as the "right" to force your employer to come to a negotiation table and then to submit to terms established by anyone else (via arbitration).

The idea that that's a "right" is pure union propaganda from the age of the Baby Boomers. And it's dying off, just like they are. It can't happen fast enough. I'll leave you to wonder which part I mean.

Don't look now Fredo but I think you've been exposed as a fraud over at Toledo Talk.

I Know!!!!! That's really something. Anonymous people on the internet don't like what I do. What they heck will I tell my grandchildren? It's so embarrassing? Some guy calling himself hockeyfan doesn't like my show and thinks I'm a ratings whore. I may have to take tomorrow off since I won't be able to sleep tonight.

1-0 on the internet, quite an accomplishment, and unable to tell people who you are because you are afraid
