What is a Scab?

Incivility is the hallmark of faithful union thugs

What is a scab?
Scabs have been called many things by many people during the course of labor history but Jack London’s description of the scab, “written with barbed wire on sandpaper,” easily dwarfs all others.
“After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, the vampire, He had some awful substance left with which He made a scab.

A scab is a two-legged animal with a cork-screw soul, a water-logged brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue. Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.

When a scab comes down the street, men turn their backs and angels weep in heaven, and the Devil shuts the gates of Hell to keep him out.

No man has a right to scab so long as there is a pool of water to drown his carcass in, or a rope long enough to hang his body with. Judas Iscariot was a gentleman compared with a scab. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A scab has not.

Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Judas Iscariot sold his Savior for thirty pieces of silver. Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commission in the British Army. The modern strikebreaker sells his birthright, his country, his wife, his children and his fellow men for an unfulfilled promise from his employer, trust or corporation.

Esau was a traitor to himself: Judas Iscariot was a traitor to his God; Benedict Arnold was a traitor to his country; a strikebreaker is a traitor to his God, his country, his wife, his family and his class."

Local LSM Turns Against Union Thugs

Badger Unionists Turn Clock Back to 1930's
Say you generally liked Gov. Scott Walker's move to rein in government labor costs but had a few doubts on his method. The last few days should have cleared that up nicely.

The public-sector union tantrums, meant to make lawmakers wobble, have an inadvertent message for the rest of us: Voters can vote all they want. We can elect a cheapskate governor and a Legislature to match. But come the moment, unions will have the last, loudest word.

They'll have it if takes marches. They'll have it if it takes what amounts to an illegal strike, with so many Madison teachers calling in sick Wednesday that the district closed schools. If it takes showing up for a we-know-where-your-family-is protest on Walker's Wauwatosa lawn while he was at work, the unions are sure they can outshout any election result.

This is exactly why Walker is right to limit the unions' power over government spending.

Walker, remember, is not removing unions' fundamental power to bargain for wages. He is demanding that state workers put 5.8% of their wages toward retirement and that they cover 12.6% of their health care premiums, which would still have them paying more than $100 less a month than the average schmoe. He is also proposing that elected officials determine the shape of employee benefits without having to bargain them, and this as much as the added cost has unions crying "unfair."

Overspending Progs Framed In By Reality

Progressives, once again, will set back Dems and America 20 years or more
Democratic senators gathered at a Virginia resort last week to plot political strategy got alarming news from a trusted pollster: Republicans are winning the debate over dealing with the budget deficit.

The Democrats learned that while the public’s top concern is improving the economy, more voters view cutting spending rather than investing as the best way to do so. And right now, they trust Republicans more to do the trimming.

These views were pronounced among independents, whose support Democrats will need in 2012 to hold the Senate, recapture the House and keep President Barack Obama in office.

The data, presented to Democratic senators at their retreat by Geoff Garin, president of Peter D. Hart Research Associates, and obtained by Bloomberg News, highlight a dilemma for Obama and Democrats in the showdown with Republicans over federal spending. They must find a way to show the public they’re willing to cut, and they’re divided over how far to go.

Meet The New Deniers

Debt Deniers wage a rebellion in Wisconsin. Bring it.
Wisconsin unions rebel at the notion, that they, like every other American must contribute to their own retirement. They cry because, like every other American, they may have to pay a percentage of their own health care.

Who is out of touch again?

It’s a rhetorical question, but let me answer it for you: President Barack Obama. He has voiced his solidarity with the unions and Organizing for America, his organization, called Wisconsinites to arms (metaphorically). Does it seem unseemly to you that the President is choosing the unions over the out-of work taxpayers? Another rhetorical question.

Clearly, these unions jerks don’t understand this: Gallup: Unemployment at 10%

While union workers have increased across America, increasing the tax burden on the private sector, private sector employees are out of work.

While union workers bitch about benefits cuts, people without jobs don’t have benefits or a job.

While union workers march because they might have to contribute to their health care costs, small business owners face having their Health Savings Accounts taken away by Obamacare.

Where unions once held a place of respect and honor in America, their collective star falls fast. And President Obama, union stooge and Debt Denier, falls with them.

How long can these people operate in a parallel universe where they suffer no consequences from this horrendous economy? Worse than sucking tax dollars out of the system is their sense of entitlement to tax dollars they take.

Forced union membership. Forced dues. Forced political activity. Forced tax payer pillage. The unions have become a force for all that is bad about the American economy.

The union thugs and their Supreme Leader Barack Obama have decided to Bring It. The Wisconsin Senators run and hide rather than be participants in a sensible way to save the Wisconsin state budget.

Fine. Bring it. Reveal to America who you really are: selfish, greedy, parasitic, overpaid, overindulged, out-of-touch, entitled workers who put your own interests over the interests of your fellow citizens, over children, over common sense.

Debt Deniers will lose.

Obamunists turning U.S. into Ameristan
Crowds of public employees protesting a sweeping Ohio proposal to strip unions of collective bargaining rights are wearing red in an effort to steer public opinion away from the idea that unions are all-Democrat organizations.

The move came as union protests by firefighters, teachers, police and state workers were joined by a smaller number of tea party activists who support the legislation. The measure would end collective bargaining and replace negotiated salary schedules with merit raises.

The second coward is Sen. Robert Rauch.

Wisconsin voters…you now have your targets. These two fled the state because they had no respect for the legislative process or the wishes of the voters. Please give their offices some love. And, start recruiting candidates to take them on. Cowards should be called out.

It's Officially Obama v. America

Astroturfing WH operatives coming soon to your Republican neighborhood
Ben Smith's scoop about the role of Organizing for America in Wisconsin surprised me. Amanda Terkel's follow-up surprises me even more -- Democrats are bragging about their role in protests that are paralyzing Wisconsin's legislature for the near future, and expanding to the rest of the Midwestern states where right to work-style laws are being debated.

A DNC staffer told The Huffington Post that the group upped its efforts in Wisconsin after Chairman Tim Kaine spoke with local legislators last week. OFA then began organizing turnout for Thursday's statehouse rally and running phone banks in Ohio targeting state senators, which are slated to continue next week. This weekend, organizers have set up door-to-door canvassing in key districts that they hope will likewise put pressure on swing lawmakers.
