I agree that the people need to take their government back from the politicians. That is exactly what the bill to remove the bargaining rights of government unions is.

The inflated benefits that have been granted to these unions is a direct payback for their help in getting politicians elected. Now the taxpayers of WI, who get nothing like these benefits or job security, are finally represented by somebody who respects the work they do earning the dollars that go to pay government workers. If the government has to BEG people to take civil service jobs, then their employees are underpaid. I doubt that is the case.

I wonder how many of the ED Majors from the University of Wisconsin who are, no doubt, involved in this protest are guaranteed a job when they graduate. I doubt very many. This is because the State can`t remove the worst teachers to make room for them due to the tenure system.

End the political favors and give the power back to the people who

As someone who lives in downtown Madison and has followed the protests closely, I wonder where you receive your information from. There have been ZERO arrests for violent behavior and the protests continue to be highly organized (although an inaccurate Fox News story cited them as being violent).

Your comments about the teachers are uncalled for and almost certainly baseless. I know and have worked with many Madison teachers and I can assure you that they are not "disgraceful" in any way. Wisconsin is rated as above average for education so again I wonder where you are getting this from.

For everyone`s sake, I very much hope that you are a troll and that your comments are not in earnest.

The Wisconsin union protesters are violent, messy, self-righteous, self-centred, they (with the Democrats) have shown no respect for democracy, they have broken the law and been dishonest role models to their students. There is no defending these disgusting people. I am in the UK, and know how disgraceful WI teachers are. Great impression to give, eh?

"While politicians take away working conditions ... to gi9ve money to their corporate buddies"? How about so as to not go broke? How about to save the taxpayers from funding Union political power, which works against their interest?

Whoever write this is a certified idiot. He also has no idea of the history of the strength of free people against those subject to tyranny, religious or otherwise.

I agree with both of your statements entirely. As far as Charlie Sheen goes, I still maintain that he is deliberately creating satirical situations that is ALWAYS lost on Celebrity news shows and politicians. Neither of those two groups know what satire really is, hence why political cartoons are always so popular.

megrendel - the Winsconsin protesters were camping out in the state capitol and then were removed forcibly, so yes there was trash left. The majority of people on both sides denouce the idea of comparing our political figures with nazis or whatever and there are NO verified reports of violence in Wisconsin, except for quickly discredited reports from fox and an arrest of one person trying to get sneak into the legislative session. Why are you trying to demonize anyone? We are all americans with common goals that dont need your help or the gov of wisconsin`s help trying to divide us. thank you.

Thing is, things aren`t so clear cut in the US. It`s not as simple as "the people vs the government". There are dozens of opposing factions, all with their own distinct idea of "how things should be". The only thing people agree on here is that it`s all f`d up and things have to change in a major way. The problem is exactly how and what kind of change needs to happen.

Once the powder keg blows, and it will eventually. The US will go fifteen different directions. The US is the most diverse nation in the world, and everyone here have very strong opinions about everything. For that I am proud. But that also makes change extremely difficult.

Other nationalities can rail on us all they want about how fat and lazy we are, haters gotta hate.
But you don`t live here, you have no clue how fubar this nation is. It`s not a simple black and white, people rising up against an evil dictator situation. It`s not even as simple as voting our way out of this mes

I see very well, thank you. Of course there are angry people shouting at both protests, as they are `protests`.

But you will find numerous examples of violence and attacks by union thugs, and very few by tea party members. Any `Hitler` signs that appear at a tea party rally are kindly asked to leave. Ask D.C. sanitation workers which demonstration they DIDN`T have to clean up after.

Nancy Pelosi and group intentionally walked through a rally of tea party protesters in an attempt to cause a scene. When that didn`t happen, they `claimed` they were spit on and called the `N`-word. Although there were DOZENS of cameras on them, they could not confirm this. There is an uncliamed $100,000 reward for anyone that can.

But, flash to the Wisconsin rally:

We have democratic process, the vote. They do not.

Protesting and rioting is the LAST resort for effecting change, not the FIRST.

If you let your country`s policies be dictated by the tiny percentage who are willing and able to get to the major population hub and protest, then you`re letting your country be run at gunpoint by a minority.

Sure, it might seem appealing when it`s for a cause you support. For example, in the UK there were student protests recently over funding cuts and increased fees.

But if it works for the "good guys", then it works for the "bad guys", and you have the English Defence League (ultra-nationalists) or the Westboro Baptists getting their way too because they were able to kick off in the street.

When the democratic process is missing, then you need to protest. But when it isn`t, the running of the country CANNOT be decided by protests, as it suberts democratic representation.

They are trying to correlate the protests in Wisconsin with protests in the Middle East, which is absurd.

On top of that, this gets put on I-A-B the day that the protesters get owned first by the Wisconsin legislature, and then by the police:

unfortunatly for the naive author of this, even if we protested (or rioted, or whatever) it wont be enough to "claim back my country". this works in the middle east where they have autocratic dictatorships, and one person is in control (topple that person and it resets the country).
In America, there is a lot of bureaucracy and a system of checks and balances that keep this sort of violent uprising from toppling the government. you would have to overthrow all three branches. Also, you think civilians have any influence in lawmaking? of course congress is going to side with their corporate interests, because that is where the campaign money is. unfortunately for us, the only option left to the common folk is to "keep calm and carry on"

Gerry1of1-"`What do you call the Tea Baggers and their rallies?"

From the evidence, Tea Party Members are hard-working, respectful, ethical and non-violent (and leave the area MUCH cleaner than their liberal counterparts) but entirely fed up with the direction the government is going.

While liberal demonstration tend to be rude, make a mess of the place and full of violent revengefull people.

The press talks about the VIOLENT, RACIST tea-party. But the only think close to violence they could show from a tea party was one guy carrying a gun. But they had to be REAL careful to show JUST the gun, as it was being carried by *gasp* a black guy attending a tea party rally.

But the Wisconsin rally has been full of threats, damaged the grounds and the building and had REAL VIOLENT RHETORIC (signs with Walker as Hitler, or `Wanted Dead or *****" signs). And yet they are portrayed as `heros`.

Except to face facts; Americans simply do not have it that bad. We lead a very wealthy, privileged existence. As a working class / middle class American I have it better off than the vast majority of the people on earth. In our hearts, we Americans know this and aren`t going to risk years of prison to try and bring down the government.
That`s why when Americans protest, they just stand around, shout some meaningless phrases, hold up funny signs and then when the time comes, they let the police arrest them. And there is your problem; they let the police arrest them, they simply give in, get handcuffed and hauled away knowing they`ll be out in a day.

In Iran, Egypt, Libya today, in Romania twenty years ago, and in France or Boston two hundred years ago, the people didn`t let the authorities arrest them. They fought the authorities. Fighting the authorities is very risky, many people will die or be injured, some risk years, if not life in prison. The protesters and revolutionaries were willing to give up their lives, not just in death, but willing to give up their lives in the sense of risking their personal well being, comfort and safely.
Usually only desperate people are willing to take so drastic a step. Americans may one day be that desperate, but right now we are still comfortable, well fed and happy. Too happy to risk losing anything to attempt a change in government.

And that`s probably a good thing, because a collapse of government in America would probably lead to chaos and possibly civil war and if you want to see how that works out for people go look at Sierra Leone. We don`t know what`s going to happen in Egypt or Libya and they may be thrown into chaos and end up as theocracies or dictatorships or they may be thrown into decades of civil war. We simply don`t know because freedom and democracy are not always the result of a revolution.

So it can make us feel good to say "Get out there, lazy Americans! Turn off the computer, turn off the TV and get out and protest!" But that`s a simplistic, poorly thought out and trite message that undermines the real desperation of truly oppressed peoples throughout the world.

@imna Police and Firefighters are exempt from the bill actually.

Lets not forget that this was exactly how the Democrats force fed us an unpopular healthcare bill when they realized they wouldn`t have the majority needed to pass it. Can`t call foul on a trick that you have used yourself.

Unions are as outdated and unnecessary as affirmative action. Just another program that was necessary when it started but useless in today`s day and age. With 24 hr news networks and more `social media` then you can shake a stick at, the slightest abuse of employees can be known internationally in 15 minutes.

Until our education stops falling into a ditch and we are in the top three again (or even showing progress), teachers can stop with the holier than thou attitude. Their union rights haven`t done anything to help that.

There is little more in American Democracy I hate more than this style of over-reactionary exaggeration. What, pray tell, are we claiming back? The offices we elected? No one has stolen our Country, we put them there. There is no giant malicious plot, on either side of our mainstream political spectrum, to subvert Freedom. We`re lucky enough to live in a stable government, where we actually have a voice and input (however small), and how to do we respond? By accusing people we`ve never met or seen of actively trying to ruin our lives. It`s childish. Yes, horrible malicious people exist, but they don`t all share the same ideology or income level. I don`t see it as that outrageous to say that the world`s jerks are distributed rather evenly.

My main point being, just appreciate what we have. Take a moment to love what we, as a county, have accomplished instead of clawing for more power and creating more strife in our already vicious political climate.

While unions have abused their powers and original intentions, that doesnt take away the fact that they have the right and necessity to collectively bargain on all the issues that the republicans are trying to strip them of. When the gov. of Wisconsin was asked hypothetically if the unions were willing to give up any amount he wanted from their benefits, but still keep the right to negotiate, would he be willing to work something out, he flat out said "NO". He is trying to take away teachers/police officers/fire fighters right to bargain as a group, key parts that are fundamental benefits of their chosen careers.

It`s the end of the world. As the population grows, we will have a shortage of food (famine) and shortly after, a disease will spread across the world (pestilence) we already have war everywhere, and all those equal death. It`s a comin`.

"Why protest? I am pretty happy with my current living conditions. I have a job, a home, and am not worried about money."

Exactly, and that`s why until it gets way worse no one will do anything about it. Oh but it will get worse...

Meh, I didn`t go to the student protests because it was in the middle of a school day... (Which was very strange)
So I`m happy with just my videogames and internet, thanks.

Those are pictures of the Wisconsin protest, right? Yeah, that doesn`t really show how people pulling together works. The Democrats ran away from their state and the bill still got passed.

This speaks the truth, these people who ousted their dictators and used the Internet to organize. That is the real power of the Internet not some idiots looking at stupid pictures of cats. Makes me want to delete my IAB account and join them.

I use to have a setup like that. But then I replaced the bed entertainment system with a wife.

Meh... I don`t want to start the poostorm but no amount of a good moral/story makes up for the bullpoo here. If you are going to compare something, you have to actually take pictures that show the same situation, not ones that are obviously picked to emphasize your point. It cheapens the message. Like the first picture... the American one is obviously at some location, like a game, where violent rioting = bad. Why not use a picture from the million man march or something where it really showed the fighting spirit?

Anyways, I like the message, but I think it could have been done better.

I`m quite happy with the country actually - I`m training myself everyday, eating well, attaining good grades at my university with a secure part-time job to help keep me and my family through money troubles.

It`s not like we are under oppression or anything. Well maybe not me but what about you?
