Rachel Maddow spells out what’s at stake in Wisconsinstan


MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and her team are exceptional journalists. To wit, they have connected the attempts of Gov. Walker in Wisconsin with his pretext of destorying the unions there.  In the attached YouTube clip, Maddow reports Unions in Wisconsinstan have already agreed to the financial concessions that governor wants, but it’s not about money, it’s about partisan politics and destroying a Democratic base of power.

Maddow and her team have uncovered previous attempts of Governor Walker to fire union workers with a private security company only to have a judge order the union workers given their jobs back with back pay, and the private security company was led by a manager with a criminal record. 

The clip is so worth watching.

    Wisconsin Democrats in the state legislature need go on the offensive. The “Flee-Party” Democrats need to strike a deal with Gov. Walker.

    1) Republican Gov. Walker needs to postpone a vote on the union busting part of the bill for 6 months.

    2) The “Flee-Party” Democrats need to return to Wisconsin and with the Republicans pass Kentucky’s S111 Bill (Resolution).
    “Urge congress to reinstate the separation of commercial and investment banking functions which were in effect under the Banking Act of 1933, and Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, collectively known as the Glass-Steagall Act, to prevent commercial banks from investing in risky investments, and to protect taxpayers from being required to bail out too-big-to-fail financial services companies in the next financial crisis. “
    The 2 page Resolution @ the above link.

    3) When the union demonstrators ask “What’s Glass-Steagall,” why wasn’t I told about Glass-Steagall”, they should then take up the issue with their worthless union leadership.

    4) The union demonstrators should then take their protest to the district offices of the Democrat Congressional Delegation, because unions are the base for the Democratic Party.

    5) Union demonstrators should then unite with the free-thinking faction of the Tea Party and demonstrate at Republican district congressional offices, and demand Glass-Steagall.

    6) Any congress-member, Rep. or Dem. That is afraid to fight for Glass-Steagall should resign.
    It’s O.K. to resign.
