I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Let’s look at a few statements and logically reason them through.
Public sector union workers remember you work for The State of Wisconsin, county, or city and NOT the UNION!
Those on the left and many public sector workers think and say, “Removing the Collective Bargaining Privileges is wrong, but if you are going to do it, it needs to be fair and the police and fire need them removed as well.”
Remember - It needs to be fair! They believe in fairness!
What about fairness where the private sector has virtually endured all the cuts?
Those on the left and many public sector workers think and say, “That is just too bad, that is the price you pay for being in the private sector.”
So it is fair for all public sector workers to suffer in removing the Collective Bargaining Privileges, but not fair for all to endure cuts meaning it isn’t fair for the public sector to endure cuts even though the private sector has.
Translation – Cuts are fine as long as they don’t apply to ME!
Remember - It needs to be fair! They believe in fairness! Not so much here!
It was fair when Doyle passed his budget (MASSIVE TAX & SPENDING INCREASES) but not fair when
Not so much here either!
If it really was about fairness, wouldn’t the union dues have been spilt 50/50 to republicans and democrats? So fairness is NOT the point.
Having a dissenting opinion isn't something to be concerned about, unless someone points out massive holes in your logic and you stick to it anyway.
The line between perception and reality can get pretty blurry depending on how close you're standing.
A fish does not know it is wet, no frame of reference
When one is short of money at home one has 2 choices.
1. Cut back, use store brand rather than name brand, wear a jumper and turn off the heating, turn off lights when not required, cook more / eat out less and so on......;
2. Sell all your furniture for a few hundred dollars & keep eating salmon & steak. When times are better, borrow a load of money to buy some new furniture.
Buy low, sell high. The basic principle of capitalism and retailing.
Freedom from unions does not equate with totalitarianism. If anything, union restrictions on job movements and time, down to the minute, approach totalitarianism in the workplace far more.
Totalitarianism is forcing some one to join a union to work at a place of business.
