Wisconsin's Teabag Governor About To Have National Guard Shoot Employees
America's leading producer of cheese products, Wisconsin, elected a Teabagger governor in November, and it's not a coincidence that said cheese products are now all at least 10% meth byproducts by weight. This Scott Walker fellow has decided that it's time Wisconsin purges the unions from state and municipal governments, and if those union people decide to make any funny business now that collective bargaining is illegal, he will call in the National Guard to shoot them or whatever. The stability and benefits of a government job are sort of the only reason why somebody would subject themselves to the indignities of working a government job, so it's understandable they are upset, but things will all be a lot better for the proud homeland of Joe McCarthy when their government consists of nothing other than the skeletal remains of our founding fathers dressed in period fashion and propped up in chairs.
Walker's special session bill begins: "Under current law, municipal employees have the right to collectively bargain over wages, hours, and conditions of employment under the Municipal Employment Relations Act (MERA), and state employees have the right to collectively bargain over wages, hours, and conditions of employment under the State Employment Labor Relations Act (SELRA). This bill changes MERA and SELRA with respect to all employees…"
It continues, "This bill limits the right to collectively bargain for all employees who are not public safety employees…"
In other words, only the armed union employees who could conceivably shoot back at the National Guard are allowed to have a union. This is shaping up to be a reverse Egypt, if you will.
We guess the Green Bay Packers have failed to win the peace. We need to have another Super Bowl to stop these cheesers from killing each other. [ The Awl ]
