    Notice how unions not impacted by the proposal to strip rights (pensions, pay, etc.) are standing WITH the protesters. Police, fire, teamsters... who else? Just like in the good old days, when big union strikes pretty much shut down everything, and people paying attention refused to cross any lines.

    General strikes are the only thing that can work in a country as big as this. We can't all show up on the Mall at any given time. We can play the "shut down" game even better than Repukes in Congress threatening that very thing right now.

      and what's nice is it clearly redefines 'power'....there's actual power that runs the system and political power that leads. But you can't have political power without some 'actual' power--no matter how much moolah the corporate swine shovel into your bucket.

      Walker just got a big fat fuck you.
