Yeah, yeah, I've heard it. Look, you asked me what I meant by characterizing the workers' side as the "good side". It was obvious, but I explained anyway. Now do you understand what I meant?

This is obtuse. We all know they did it to draw attention and rally support. It worked fine.

... I also think it's a stretch to call these 'rights'. It's simply a law that defines what can and cannot be done.
So, you don't know what "good side" means, violating the spirit of a law becomes "subversion", and now a legal right is no longer to be referred to as a "right". You seem to be inventing your own little language.

So, if the Republicans do it when the Dems are in power, I guess you'll have no problem with that? Good to know for the future. FYI, this "fleeing" has never been done in the history of Wisconsin, which was founded in 1848.........

Round and round the poltical bush we go.

We think any real relevance to FIRE has now gone in the thread.
