CNN – Six Wisconsin State Senate Republicans who supported Governor Walker’s bill to curb collective bargaining rights for most public employees will be forced to defend their seats in a recall election today.

If Republicans lose just three seats, Democrats will regain control of the Senate, a rebuff that could send a message to GOP lawmakers nationwide about reelection in 2012.

    Never Bet against the United States, watch out Republicans or the ones that call themselves the Bag of Tea Party, we are coming for you! The win in New York was the beginning but now it’s Wisconsin, next target our nation. The Republicans are like the “Chicken Little’s” always saying that the “Sky is Falling”, like the same ones that were the “Chicken Hawks” (“W” Wars), big talk no courage.

    Generations have worked hard and sacrificed much for the country to reach this point (individuals and collectively as Unions!), and with further hard work and sacrifice (along with our relentless self-doubt) the United States will rise again, we do not tire and we are coming back, no matter what “Standard and Poor’s AKA “Scandal and Snores”, Fake News and the Republicans (especially the Bag of Tea Party) “Chicken Little’s” lackies keep saying about our nation.

    The United States, favors creativity wherever it can be found. We’re apostles of prosperity and defenders of the free exchange of ideas and when more people in more countries are free to rise, to invent, to communicate, to dissent, it’s not the doom of United States leadership, it’s the triumph of the American way.

    You know what this current crowd of GOP liars want is to turn the United Sates into China, where only a few giant corporations run things, they own the factories, the apartments, the grocery stores, the gas stations, the newspaper and magazine publications, the radio stations, the television stations and you pay them and they get all the benefits, and if you do not like it go jump off cliff. Well some Chinese workers seeing that as individuals that they cannot progress have done just that by committing suicide.

    The current crowd of GOP liars want to steal Medicare and Social Security from the elderly, they want to abolish a woman’s right to choose and have control over her own body, they want to abolish collective bargaining rights for our Unions, and on top of it all they want to blame the poor, the middle class, the public sector workers and Unions for a recession that the Republicans created (Thanks to the Dullard “W”), while their beloved “Fat cats” continue to pay themselves exorbitant salaries, bonuses, fringe benefits.

    Many tell me that the economy was great under “W”, but when you are cooking the books and have taken TWO of the most expensive WARS OF CHOICE in our history, “OFF THE BOOKS”, well now you see the results that will be with us for the next three decades. Remember “W” learned how to “cook the books” with his “No Child left behind” program from the great State of Texas (Rick Perry, cooks the books too), but hey the Republicans never lies right (Just about Wars and everything else)? Please, tell me another!
