Greedy Pigs....

Just about every time I decide to waste my valuable time on this earth discussing anything with a Progressivevik fingersniffer, one word invariably comes up: "greedy".

"CEOs are greedy. The rich are greedy. People who oppose Obamacareless are greedy. The United States is greedy...." Blah, blah, blah, 2+2=5, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's as if their little minds can't come up with another concept. It's fairly apparent that when God was passing out brains, the libs were too busy taking bong hits to care. Critical thinking is certainly not a liberal concept to say the least, since it is the libs, not the rest of us, who are the greedy pigs.

For further proof of the above stated hypothesis, one needs to look no further than the current hubhub created by the public sector unions in Wisconsin. You want to see greed ? Just look at the Badger State's current round of civil unrest.

For those of you who were living under a rock for the last week, the situation in Wisconsin is as follows: The state of Wisconsin, after years of Progressivevik mismanagement, is broke. Thus, the people of Wisconsin elected Conservative Scott Walker as governor to fix it, hoping to avoid the same fate as other failed Progressivevik dystopias like California and New York. Governor Walker immediately set his sights on the state's largest financial problem-- the greedy public sector unions. He and the state legislature drafted a bill to limit the right of the state's government workers to collectively bargain (Or as I like to say, engage in Mafioso tactics.) and force government workers to actually pay a touch more for their benefits. (A measly 8% more.) Needless to say, this was as welcome as a surprise visit from the mother-in-law to the unions. The unions, especially the "teacher" unions, did their best Egyptian imitation and headed to Madison, calling in sick, disrupting public services, and having schools closed. As of this writing, Governor Walker is sticking to his guns (Yes, I said "sticking to his guns". Deal with it, CNN.) and not doing his best John Boehner imitation and folding his tents right away. The protests and counter protests continue.

Is that not greed, Dear Reader ?

If you'll note, Govwernor Walker isn't laying off anyone. Governor Walker isn't furloughing anyone. He's not handing out IOU's like the Jerkinator (hat tip: The Great One, Mark Levin) did in California. Governor Walker is doing what he was elected to do: fix Wisconsin's finacial mess, which has the state in a 3 billion dollar hole. ( ) Walker is doing what any sane person in his situation would do: curtail expenses. If you'll note, he's doing so in the most humane way possible.

But that's just not good enough for the greedy pigs in the public sector unions, is it ?

These lowlifes couldn't possibly care less if their unemployed neighbors who have children are struggling as is. These lowlifes could care less that those of us work in the private sector go to work everyday hoping they still have a job when they arrive. These lowlifes could care less that we in the private sector pay an arm and leg for our health insurance. (You know, the health insurance that Chairman Obama promised would become cheaper if his Obamacareless scam became law. Another rant for another time, to be sure.) These lowlifes couldn't care less about their neigbors. Their neighbors owe them.

Well, guess what, bottom feeders: your neighbors owe you nothing. They're YOUR bosses. Start acting like it.

God help us all.
