Obama Wants Control Over Each State AND the Country - What State’s Rights? What Constitution?

This country is becoming one big pot for our usurper president and imminent dictator.  He shows his ignorance and unfamiliarity with the United States Constitution when he starts telling state Governors how to run their provinces which THEY were duly elected to govern.

This man who stole his way into the highest office in this land is either the most brazen, or the most stupid, or perhaps equal parts of each, iconoclast or rule breaker.

His position and statements against the elected authority of the Governor of the State of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, are a violation of states’ rights and the Constitution and are absolutely out of order; a brazen attempt to coddle labor unions as payback for the many millions of dollars of their members’ dues money that they used to get this charlatan elected in 2008.

.

Unions have outlived their usefulness and have become rotten and corrupt to the core by stealing the dues money their members pay for their illicit activities not the least of which is currying favor with highly elected officials in return for favorable assistance from those officials to gain added advantages in the union workplace through strong-arm and illegal tactics.

Just one look at the Black Panthers menacing presence at the voting polls in Philadelphia recently is enough to know where these cretins are coming from. They want total control over all of America’s workers, including the places of business in which they work.  And they’ll say or do anything to make it possible.

With incredible arrogance, the usurper president of the United States has accused Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker, of unleashing “an assault” on unions by pressing legislation that would end collective bargaining rights for public employees and sharply increase their health care and pension payments, according to a February 18, 2011 FoxNews.com online report.

This double talking, conniving, deceiver is falsely accusing the recently elected state governor of “assaulting” unions “by pressing legislation that would end collective bargaining rights for public employees” just by having the public employees increase their health care and pension payments. Wisconsin is not on an island where they pay insignificantly as their share for these benefits.  In private industries, the employees share of these costs are considerably higher than for those on the public payrolls.  But Obama, in deference to his friends in the union leadership roles, tries to pretend otherwise.

FoxNews.com quotes the Governor, “the demands on public employees are ‘modest’ compared with those in the private sector, and are meant to prevent a shutdown, which could result in 6,000 state workers not getting paid. We’re at a point of crisis, adding that he would call out the National Guard if needed to keep state operations, including prisons, running.”

The FoxNews.com report continued that in Wisconsin, Gov. Walker is going for it all—the elimination of collective bargaining rights for public employees plus sharp increases in their health care and pension payments. His plan advanced quickly to the Republican-led Senate, despite several days of protests that drew tens of thousands of demonstrators to the Capitol. But Senate Democrats suddenly fled the state Thursday, bringing the legislative process to a halt.

Many online stories of the situation in Wisconsin have been “blogged” by readers charging the Democrats with being cowards and also of shirking their duties by bolting out of the state to avoid any confrontations on the labor situation in the state government.  Some have insisted that the Governor investigate the possibility of existing emergency governing procedures when a sizeable number of state legislators would be out of contact such as is the case at this moment.  Acting on his own, should such powers exist, would surely create a hasty return to the state of the less-than-diligent legislators.

Walker went “On The Record” with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Thursday night and reiterated his appeal for the senators to return to Wisconsin. “Democracy doesn’t come by hiding out in another state,” he said. “I made a personal appeal for all the senators to come back.”

In a statement he released earlier, Walker said the actions of the lawmakers were “disrespectful to the hundreds of thousands of public employees who showed up to work today and the millions of taxpayers they represent.”

To listen to the lamestream media on this labor union v. state government workers donnybrook, you would think that these mostly overpaid, overcompensated with perks, state employees were the victims of a foreign dictator-like repulsive, life threatening action.

In a Media Research Center (MRC) Alert on February 19, 2011, ABC was calling for a “mutiny in America” on Thursday evening while NBC’s Brian Williams called for Wisconsin public employees to “rise up and say no to some of the most extreme cuts in the nation”.  While of course there was no such thing.

MRC continued, “Though Governor Walker is merely asking the coddled workers

for a slight increase, from six to twelve percent, in the portion of the generous health coverage they must pay, ABC reporter Chris Bury painted it as a dire burden, citing how Walker is “demanding that public employees pay more for their pensions and health care, the equivalent of a seven percent pay cut.”

The corrupt union leaders and their lamestream media cohorts have likened Governor Walker to a Nazi, Egyptian leader Mubarak and even a dictator. They are unable to tell the truth about the situation so they invent lies and innuendos to sharpen the attacks on the appropriate actions to be taken by the Governor.

In these days of record high unemployment all over the country, cities, towns and states are having difficulty making budget projections when taxpayers are struggling to pay their household bills.  The Obama - Democrat free-style spending and union catering has broken the piggy bank for the average household.  Federal government freezes on social security cost-of-living increases have seen seniors and others get less money than normal while watching prices zoom upwards during one of the worst winters on record.

If seniors and others have to cope with less dollars to pay for higher costing items, the fat and happy union employees should at least cooperate by adjusting their demands accordingly.

A period of reckoning will be on us if we don’t adjust.
