The part where the guy says "We invited teachers on and they refused", well, no kidding! Everytime anyone who doesnt follow Fox's veiws and standards tries to go on that "news" channel, they get bullied and thier words are horribly twisted. "Guys like this are few and far between in the crowd"?? I saw quite a few anti Fox protest sigsn, there pal. Fox...damn them anyway.

Seems like the most rational possible response to the presence of those dedicated to propagating irrationality. Since dialog is not possible, there are few other options.

I don't like Fox, but I gotta give the reporter some credit. It would be tough to keep a train of thought with that douche being obnoxious.

So Auburn wants Union reform- I don't think anyone can argue with that. The unions have become corrupt and antiquated; they must be forced to modernize.

Taking away the central pillar of what makes a union a union (collective bargaining rights) isn't reform, though.

As a side note; the base annual salary for those top two bus drivers is approximately $75,000 annually. They earned the rest of the money through safety related bonuses (which get bigger for every year without an accident, with no cap) and a union agreement in which the most senior workers get first dibs on any offered overtime. After safety bonuses for decades of accident free driving the bus drivers are earning six figure incomes- then the overtime is icing on the cake.

Incidences like these are rare, though not entirely justifiable. However, reform and elimination are not the same; this is a distinction that has been made, previously.

Salary needs to be based on Merit and Value though.



Hmmm... good point actually. The problem with that though is Merit systems are also plagued with politics.

Did you know that the highest paid (govt.) employee in Wisconsin is not that Governor. Not a legislator. Not a state official of any kind.

It is a bus driver. Because of seniority, he makes over $129,000 per year. Second place?

Another bus driver. $127,000.

"Why is it so unreasonable to ask for higher salaries AFTER a surplus is achieved AND the economy picks up?"

It isn't.

Salary needs to be based on Merit and Value though. NOT seniority or power plays, which is how Unions operate.

If you know anything about Unions, that would NEVER happen.


Sweeping generalization. As DickenMcHunt pointed they already agreed to the first half of my statement. They want to keep their bargaining rights so they can ask later.

LOL Of course the protesters are extremists.

This is basically the argument.

Governor of Wisconsin: Okay guys. We don't have the money to pay all your demands, period.

Union members: Oh hells no. drat dat muthadrata. We wont our handouts muthafudgeka!

Governor of Wisconsin: I'd give 'em to ya if I could, but there is NO MONEY.

Union members: Well cut other programs like ROADS and HEALTHCARE and SOCIAL SERVICES so we can get our $78,000 AVERAGE SALARY FOR 9 MONTHS OF WORK.

Governor of Wisconsin: Are you nuts? We are gonna vote on this. Legislature, you ready?

Democrat Legislators: Can't pass it without us. We will be over here in Illinois, ignoring your call to session, even though we are required by our office to participate. We weren't elected to actually VOTE for the good of the PEOPLE were we?

Governor of Wisconsin: Well poo.

"I was watching Jon Stewart and he showed how Hannity and Beck were painting these protestors as a bunch of extremists."

You CAN support the Tea Party and report news in an unbiased fashion. It IS the most watched network by a LONG shot!

Gladhatter, so you're saying the only station to actually promote and support a right wing group "Tea party" Is less biased than the other news channels?

Really?
