Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is a sheriff who's been called-out by the bad guys so many times it's a wonder he's still walking.  But he is, and the floor is littered with dead union thugs who tried to kill him.  What we have here then, from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,  is the familiar Liberal contrivance of offering advice to the guy who's just kicked your ass.

Is Wisconsin better off with weaker unions?

Some conservatives think so. Legislators will consider the question when right-to-work legislation is introduced early next year. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said members in his house would begin debate within weeks.

But I think Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican leadership should tread carefully. There is scant evidence that right-to-work laws boost job creation; there is evidence that weaker unions hurt working people. And there is no doubt whatsoever that a fight over right to work in Wisconsin will be bloody. Remember Act 10?

Under right-to-work laws, workers in unionized shops cannot be required to pay dues as a condition of employment. That creates a "free rider" problem for unions as workers calculate that they can benefit from representation without paying for it. As a result, unions have a harder time organizing and less clout. Twenty-four states have some form of right to work including Michigan and Indiana.

Walker says right-to-work is not a priority but he hasn't said whether he would sign a bill if one reaches his desk. If a bill gets to Walker, I don't think there is any question what he will do. He will sign it.

Conservatives have long argued that workers should be free from the coercion that comes from forced union dues, and they believe that right-to-work gives workers more choices. I understand their arguments. Years ago, I was approached to organize the newsroom where I was working at the time by a rep from the typographers union. I declined. As a young reporter, I wanted the freedom to work as many hours as I needed to learn the craft and felt the union might limit my ability to do that.

But that said, I don't think workplace freedom is the real objective here. This is about weakening unions.

James Sherk of The Heritage Foundation, the conservative think tank, wrote in a 2011 paper that right to work "makes unions less aggressive and encourages business investment, creating jobs."

Does it really encourage job growth?  (OMFG, YES). 


Every mother must fear ....

I don't think so Lucy

My photochopper eyes suggest that this is no 'shop.  What I've learned from this whole Ferguson deal is there are great numbers of Black Americans who feel the way Frederick Wilson II  (also from Metzger) does, and are finding a voice.  How ironic if this Helter Skelter fueled event is responsible for finally awakening the Black community to how they've been manipulated by the Democrat Party?

Mohammad's Giant Penis

   ISIS's latest killing machine: 10-foot sniper rifle that can
 fire bullets three times the size of a normal gun
  • The fearsome weapon is thought to fire 23mm calibre bullets
  • 'Gun could be effective against lightly armoured vehicles,' says expert
Cuzzin Ricky writes, "How accurate could it be at long distances?  No scope....."

I'll leave analysis to experts like Kim, but one must fear that the Islamos have found Gerald Bull's secret diary. As for the scope, yes!  A glaring short fall.   At the risk of being, like Bull, targeted by the Mossad, I've solved  that problem in the rollover. Don't worry, this is a secure site, so there's no way the ISISes can use my idea.

What sort of effect this gun would have remains open to debate, however, according to firearms expert David Dyson.
He told MailOnline: 'The problem with identifying the effect of this gun is firstly that we don't know for sure what the calibre is, although there wouldn't be a lot of point in building something like this if it wasn't of a significant calibre. Secondly, and probably of more importance, we don't know how well it is made: is the barrel accurately machined and rifled?

'The effect will also depend on the type of ammunition used. These rounds exist [23mm] fitted with high explosive incendiary or armour piercing incendiary projectiles.They will be effective against personnel and vehicles including lightly armoured ones.'
The picture emerged after a show of force from al Qaeda's Nusra Front, a rival group. They toured in a convoy around villages they said they had captured from Syrian rebels.
Dozens of pick-up trucks bristling with anti-aircraft guns and men armed with heavy machine guns drove through settlements in the southern countryside of Idlib.
