Police, Fire, Teacher, Unions Extort Local Business In Wisconsin For Political & Financial Gain (W/Update)

This will be used in other states if it isn't already.


Mr. Tom Ellis, President

Milwaukee, WI 53202
Dear Mr. Ellis:
As you undoubtedly know, Governor Walker recently proposed a “budget adjustment bill” to eviscerate public employees’ right to collectively bargain in Wisconsin. Collective bargaining has maintained labor peace between public employers and employees for more than 50 years, and according to every poll taken in the last few weeks, it enjoys overwhelming public support. In refusing to accept the willingness of many of the unions to be flexible on economic matters, Governor Walker has made it clear that his bill is really aimed at union busting, rather than “putting the state’s fiscal house in order.” This revelation has caused Wisconsin citizens to hold massive demonstrations at the State Capitol and throughout Wisconsin in adamant opposition to Governor Walker’s attempt to destroy collective bargaining. Never before in our State’s history have we witnessed such a massive and continued outpouring of opposition to any governor or issue.
As you also know, Scott Walker did not campaign on this issue when he ran for office. If he had, we are confident that you would not be listed among his largest contributors. As such, we are contacting you now to request your support. The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor Walker’s efforts to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public employees in Wisconsin. While we appreciate that you may need some time to consider this request, we ask for your response by March 17. In the event that you do not respond to this request by that date, we will assume that you stand with Governor Walker and against the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, and other dedicated public employees who serve our communities.
In the event that you cannot support this effort to save collective bargaining, please be advised that the undersigned will publicly and formally boycott the goods and services provided by your company. However, if you join us, we will do everything in our power to publicly celebrate your partnership in the fight to preserve the right of public employees to be heard at the bargaining table. Wisconsin’s public employee unions serve to protect and promote equality and fairness in the workplace. We hope you will stand with us and publicly share that ideal
In the event you would like to discuss this matter further, please contact the executive Director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, Jim Palmer, at 608.273.3840.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Many of us live near or shop at the Sendiks in Shorewood and were told that Nehring was not giving funds to union busters, unlike the other Sendik owners, Balistreris. Please go to the Shorewood manager this weekend and tell him he needs to tell John Nehring that he either pulls his support from Jeff Stone or we will have a serious boycott of Shorewood. Tell him you shop ther but no longer unless he pulls his support–publically. Monday, there will be a protest in front of 2300 E. Kensington in Shorewood where. The fundraiser for Stone starts at 5:30 or please plan to be there by 5:00. More details to follow.

These people are not only padding their own pockets through increased salaries and benefits with our money they are also using our money to crush their opposition. Their opposition is us, the ones paying them.

UPDATE: Now the little children are super gluing Sendik's doors:

Famine, earthquakes, wars, teachers being cruelly hurt, unions having their basic human rights abrogated.

It's just not enough for Democrats. They need a kicker. They'll save us from ourselves!

The Dead Jap Fundraiser For Big Gov

"make Professor Friedman spin in his grave … and the Tea Party be damned."

The lie is falling. The lie is falling. If only we had big government to stop this deadly rain of destruction. If only! If only we had a law, another bureaucrat and an all encompassing government to meet every contingency of every problem that just might come our way. Maybe we need comet commissars to prowl our streets and homes to ensure we are properly prepared for the day. You must see that it is only logical.

Laissez-Faire Earthquake Lessons

Let’s hear it for building codes, health and safety regulations, mandatory standards for public education, and all sorts of helpful government intervention that would make Professor Friedman spin in his grave … and the Tea Party be damned.

This piece, from the Chronicle of Higher Education, merely a defense for their actions in Madison, Columbus and an ever growing list of capitols that have grown weary of their childish demands that they be treated as an equal, but super special group within our dying economy, is indicative of just how entrenched they believe they have made themselves.

So they chant, dance and play drums bolstered by articles such as this to raise "awareness" to their plight. Plights take money and this article is nothing more than a plight-fighting money raiser.

There should be a teachable moment here, but how do teachers teach when they are refusing to be taught by their employers. Their employers have gone broke being taught how special special groups they are. We have no more money.

God have mercy on the Japanese suffering, but Higher Ed doesn't want the dead to waste their deadness so they are just borrowing them for a little lesson-pep talk and a fundraiser.

These are your teachers. Learn from them.
