Who Needs Unions ? They Have The Kleptocrats

By Da King Published: March 8, 2011

How many of you remember that old Schoolhouse Rock video/song called "I'm Still Just A Bill" ? It explained to kids how a bill becomes a law, providing a nice civics lesson for the children about how the democratic process works.

But thanks to Wisconsin's Fleebagger Democrats, the democratic process has changed. Our new democratic process excludes the "democratic" part. Now, thanks to the Democratic party, it more resembles the "democratic process" Patty Hearst had with the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). Thus, the revised version of 'how a bill becomes a law' is presented below:

The Fleebagger link above includes a Rassmussen poll showing 67% of likely American voters disapprove of the terrorist tactics of the Fleebaggers. What is noteworthy is that among Democrats polled, the Fleebagger hijacking of democracy is APPROVED OF by a margin of 48-44%. A majority of Democrats think it's alright for them to hold Patty Hearst hostage if it leads to Democrats getting what they want. Let's only hope the Fleebagger Democrats don't take another cue from the SLA and start robbing banks to make up the Wisconsin budgetary shortfall. This is not out of the realm of possibility, because liberals, being thieves of the same stripe as legendary bank robber Willie Sutton, also know where the money is...and liberals are obsessed with getting their grubby mitts on it. If you don't believe me, just listen to liberals talk for five minutes. All they ever talk about is getting their hands on other people's money, and they become infuriated when they can't, leading them to act out like petulant children, as the Fleebaggers are doing now.

In light of these circumstances, I propose some changes.

1. They can't call themselves the Democratic Party anymore, because they clearly don't believe in democracy.

The name is an oxymoron. To get some truth in advertising, I suggest their new name be the Kleptocratic Party. Listen to the following definition of the word 'Kleptocracy', and tell me it doesn't sound exactly like the Democra...er, the Kleptocrats:

Kleptocracy...is a term applied to a government subject to control fraud that takes advantage of governmental corruption to extend the personal wealth and political power of government officials and the ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats), via the embezzlement of state funds at the expense of the wider population, sometimes without even the pretense of honest service. The term means "rule by thieves"...the term is a pejorative for governments perceived to have a particularly severe and systemic problem with the selfish misappropriation of public funds by those in power.

If that doesn't describe the

Democrats Kleptocrats to a tee, I don't know what does.

2. We need legislation implemented to fire legislators who don't show up for work.

The Kleptocrat Fleebaggers have refused to come to work and do their jobs for weeks now. They should be FIRED, just as you would be if you took weeks off of work because you felt like it. In fact, the Fleebaggers should be fired AND they should have to reimburse the people who contributed to their campaigns. I think there's a great class action lawsuit here. The Fleebaggers have defrauded the public in addition to their dereliction of duty. Nobody makes campaign donations for politicians to NOT do their jobs.

3. Collective bargaining is completely unnecessary in the public sector. Let's get rid of it.

If the actions of the Fleebaggers don't clue people in to the fact that government workers already have strong representation in state legislatures without collective bargaining, I don't know what would clue them in. That representation makes public sector unions superfluous at best, and infringing at worst. Think about it. Under the Constitution, who is authorized to levy taxes ? Congress, that's who. The government. Not the unions. And all the salaries of all government workers are paid for by taxes. So you could say that when public sector unions make demands for higher pay, threaten strikes, engage in mob tactics, and have the Democrats in their pocket, then it's the unions who are levying taxes, not the government. It's at least cronyism, which I could have sworn even Democrats were against five minutes ago.

Furthermore, who are public sector unions collectively bargaining against ? They aren't bargaining against some fat cat corporate board of directors, they are bargaining against all the taxpayers in this country. They are bargaining against We The People, but as I've pointed out before, We The People don't have a coalition representing the taxpayers at that bargaining table. Why should the unions have more representation than the taxpayers who are paying their salaries ? Are they better than the rest of us ? Are they entitled to some special treatment the rest of us are not ? I don't think so, yet the Kleptocrats are acting as if public sector union collective bargaining is some hallowed, sacred, and inviolable right. It isn't. Even FDR didn't believe in it. Neither did labor leader George Meany, former head of the AFL-CIO.

Rather than this coalition and that coalition bargaining back and forth over government employee wages and benefits, let's let our elected representatives do it. After all, that's why we elected them. If we don't like the job they do, then we can elect someone else. That's how it's supposed to work. Everybody always complains about special interests running the government. Well, guess what ? The unions are one of them, and we have a chance to stop it...and we can balance some state budgets in the process.

In the end, public sector union collective bargaining means the voters don't have the final say. The voters should have it, no matter what those protesters with the Hitler signs in Wisconsin are carrying on about ("Waah ! Instead of making $90,000 in wages and benefits, I'll only be making $89,300 ! It's like the Third Reich all over again ! Waaah !!!"...Are ya freakin' kiddin' me ? Go home. Go to work).
