Bringing Down The HousePosted Friday, February 18, 2011, at 1:16 PM
Now as leftists AstroTurf demonstrations in Madison, and shut down schools, their hypocrisy is glaring. What we have now is the parasitic public sector unions versus the well being of the United States.
Public sector unions are the enemy of free enterprise, the enemy of individual responsibility and the enemy of sanity and fair play.
Three hundred thousand Wisconsin State employees get $22,000 worth of insurance benefits each year at NO CHARGE. Union thuggery thinks benefits like these are free I guess. As most of us, not curled up in the lap of government employee luxury realize, there ain't no free lunch.
In Illinois, the top 100 State workers are "owed" almost one billion in retirement benefits. Yet, you small business people, you producers, are told by these leftists, that you are the greedy.
What public sector union thugs do not seem to get through their thick heads is that THEY WORK FOR US. Not the other way around. Teachers unions, and other public employee unions, have simply become tools of the left. Teachers unions have long ago forgotten about the students, and have placed their personal greed above teaching.
We have far too many people that think they are owed of lifetime of big money and big benefits simply because they attended college. Our Universities have become government worker breeding grounds, teaching arrogance and entitlement, with minds poisoned by leftist indoctrination.
Some will, no doubt, come on here and say that I paint with too broad of brush, that not every public employee union member is arrogant or bathing in a false notion of lifetime entitlement owed them by the taxpayers.
Okay, you government employees that still have love for your country, stop supporting your greedy unions if you don't agree with them. Grow a spine!
Be prepared however, because we know that government employees that do stand against leftists unions may lose their jobs.
Leftists are not tolerant, and they will jump on those that disagree with their Socialist agenda like a rat on a Cheeto.
You union members that stand for sanity may have to go get a a real job, and get your hands dirty. You may have to work more than eight hours a day. You may have to sacrifice to provide for your own retirement and your own benefits.
You may not get thirty to fifty paid days off a year.
Welcome to the real world.
This gravy train that government employees, and their leftists unions have dreamed up, is coming to an end.
Government employees will claim that they are taxpayers. Well, not really. The taxes that you pay, are in reality, merely a very small refund of overpayment that is your too high salary and your too high benefits.
Now don't hate on me just because I tell the truth. Truth can be liberating.
We do need government employees. We need Police, and Firefighters, and teachers, and regulators, and Librarians, and Judges and so forth.
However, it is ludicrous to pay government workers far more than private sector wages. It is nutty to pay government employees for sixty years for twenty five years of work.
That is economic suicide.
These Wisconsin protestors are acting like spoiled brats. They have been pampered for so long they think they are owed all of the finer things in life simply because they are government employees.
And what about the hateful rhetoric coming from these protestors? Wow! What happened to the constant talk of civility?
To Liberals, any talk that they disagree with is hateful.
They, on the other hand, can call the Governor of Wisconsin a dictator like Mubarak. They can call him Hitler.
Liberalism is the very definition of hypocrisy.
The government employee protestors in the streets of Madison Wisconsin all have nice fat pension plans that the producers in Wisconsin must pay for.
They all have fat salaries and fat benefit plans.
And then they dare compare themselves to protestors in other parts of the world who struggle for enough food to eat or basic human rights.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Leftist thought is an affront to rational discussion.
Let us hope that this brave Governor in Wisconsin will continue to stand in the face of the cowardly leftist community organizers bussed in from neighboring States.
Let us hope the Wisconsin Governor, and true leaders in other states, will face down the phony baloney pleas of the over paid and under worked.
