[Re. the pro-union protests in Wisconsin.]

The protests in Egypt were ostensibly pro-democracy protests, but we don't know yet how it will all turn out in the end.

The protests in Wisconsin are clearly ANTI-democracy protests against the duly elected governor and legislature doing exactly what they were elected to do. In other words, those protesters have taken up the mantle of deposed Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak. We all know how this protest will turn out - the forces of democracy will win in the end.

when he though he was talking to David Koch, Gov. Walker called the teachers "bastards" and said he would "crush" them. Now, that's going to be an interesting parent-teacher conference.

So, then, the TeaBaggers, protesting against the duly elected Obama administration and Democratically controlled Congress, are also ANTI-democracy, right?

The tea-party protests were clearly ANTI-democracy protests against the duly elected president and congress doing exactly what they were elected to do. In other words, those protesters have taken up the mantle of deposed Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak. We all know how this protest will turn out - the forces of democracy will win in the end.

Democracy doesn't mean that you can never protest what your government is doing. If that were the case, than any protests at all would be undemocratic, including the tea party protests.

That's different. CONSERVATIVES disagree with Obama and we all know that the Constitution gives the right to free speech and public assembly to conservatives and nobody else just as the theo-fascist founding fathers intended. That part must have been erased by some liberal atheist gay Muslim Satanist communist Nazi though.

"The protests in Wisconsin are clearly ANTI-democracy protests against the duly elected governor and legislature doing exactly what they were elected to do."

Just because you're "duly elected" doesn't mean you're not still working for those who elected you. Politicians are employees of the people and, as such, if they don't perform as their "boss" expects they can expect loud complaints and to be booted out the door. Politicians would do well to remember that.

"In other words, those protesters have taken up the mantle of deposed Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak."

Say what?

"We all know how this protest will turn out - the forces of democracy will win in the end."

Probably. That's why they're protesting.

The forces of democracy are what the unions arose from you idiot. The right to protest is essential to a goverment for the people, not the billionaires, the masses.
Why the fuck you people voted these decade failures in, I'll never understand. Why did they think Tea-Party Republicans were any different then the Bush administration?

Yeah, it’s not like the Constitution protects the right to protest or anything.

The protests in Wisconsin are really about the state trying to get out of legal contracts that the government willingly negotiated and agreed to several years ago.

...Whereas the bill to ban trade unions has long been the staple of good Conservative Democracies such the People's Republic of China, Soviet Union and (gasp) The Third Reich.

The right to protest is part of democracy, too.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


Why do fundies and conservitives hate the Constitution so?

Exactly. The Republicans in office keep on trying to portray it as about benefit cuts, but despite the unions agreeing to said cuts, he still pushes the union busting aspect of it. There’s no reason for him to be so stubborn if it’s really just about the budget.

"The protests in Wisconsin are clearly ANTI-democracy protests against the duly elected governor and legislature"

Well, all they have to do is wait until next election time, and do their democratic duty, and vote them out, if they're considered undesirable.

...unless of course, said politicians' policies were to the liking of said electorate, thus they're returned to those positions again for another term (and so on & so forth). That's the way the democracy biscuit crumbles, I'm afraid.

Those protesters in Wisconsin are - as you admitted - anti-democracy, thus if they go further than mere peaceful protests, then they should expect a taste of this:



After all the US Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines have - when they were first recruited into such - sworn an oath to defend the Constitution (the basis of your country) and the United States which it represents from all enemies both foreign and domestic.

If you're anti-democracy, then by definition that's being Un-American. (I'm British, but I fully support the US Constitution, and what it represents: Freedom.).

Short-stroking it over those scenes in Tahrir Square in Cairo much, little Freak Cuntservative? Wished it was something similar outside the White House, eh? Well, because of the above, combined with this:



If wishes were currency, you'd be homeless & hungry, Unnatural-Texan.

Democracy. Freedom. Either you're for it - or against it.

Wisconsin - On the forefront of bringing USA back to the days of Dickens and workhouses.

Prisoners are already used as slave labor for 25 cents per hour and now they want to get rid of unions so the rich fat cat's like the Koch-aine brothers can abuse their employees without consequences.

What Wisconsin is fighting for now, was resolved, once and for all, more then 70 years ago in the first world., USA is still almost a century behind.

But with a crappy union system and no real labor movement, coupled with two right wing political parties - the future does not look bright for US workers.

Then don't complain about the lack of fire services and law enforcement when you defund those departments to fix a problem that your oh so dear tea party candinates cause.

Sweetie the best thing about living in a democracy is that you can peacefully protest whatever the fuck you want.

It's why soldiers have laid down their lives for generations.
