Madison Tea Party Protestor Should Thank Unions

February 20, 2011

Just when I thought there were no more amusing signs to be seen from the past week of union protests at the Wisconsin State Capitol came one my way in the newspaper.  There it was blazing across the front page, above the fold, in the Sunday edition of the Wisconsin State Journal.

A 40-ish looking man with a sign that read “We Protest On Saturdays-To Busy Working M-F Paying For Union Greed.”  The photo was taken Saturday when less than 3,000 Tea Party members came to protest unions on the Madison isthmus.

Well, how about that!

I guess he told us!

Problem is this man is not connected to history of  the labor movement.  It is because of unions, and because of the men and women that he protested against, that he was able to be off on the weekend in the first place!

Who does he think brought the weekend into being?

Corporate America?

The need for education in this land is great.  I have stated that over and over on CP.  But this past week has again demonstrated that those who need it the most are the ones that never want to listen and learn.

    The Tea Baggers usually aren’t from the state they’re protesting in. The outcomes have nothing to do with them. The get back on the bus and never have to worry about any of the things they claim to be in favor of. I’ll bet they’d be on the protesters side if it was their lives being affected.

    I hope Scott and Mr. Teabagger have a safe drive to work tomorrow after the freezing rain tonite and the plow drivers clear the roads, and if there’s an accident, that the nasty public workers, like EMTs, Police and Firefighters don’t bother them and that they don’t have to go to a public employe staffed emergency room, or have county paid home health nurses attend to them. Maybe they can “opt out” and walk

    I am thankful for that Tea Party protestor showing up, because he is right.
