so now you decide who should buy what kind of car? you get to choose how everybody else can spend their money. there is a word for that, starts with 'h' and ends with 'ypocrisy'.

@mike_l - The only true 'HYPOCRISY' is that which is coming from public sector union members who shout things like 'solidarity' and 'brotherhood' while failing to support their domestic private sector brethren by choosing to buy alternative products, such as a Toyota/Honda/Nissan/Kia/Hyundai/etc.! If you're serious about 'solidarity' and 'brotherhood,' you'd make it a point in all aspects of your life and only ever try to support your own - especially where you have the choice to do so easily available to you. My point, based upon my survey, is that about 70% of public school employees across the state don't follow this rather simple to understand and essential concept in actually practicing 'solidarity' and 'brotherhood.' They can say the terms all they like, however, a majority of them apparently need to go back to school in order to comprehend what those terms actually stand for. Instead of just talking the talk, they should put up or shut up by walking the walk! Get it now?

The Recall Scott Walker movement is sure to pass according to current petitioners and volunteers in the Recall Walker Campaign. One volunteer said, “I think we’re going to get 750,000 votes.” Volunteers are all over Wisconsin collecting signatures from students, faculty and everyday citizens. However, getting the votes for the recall election is not the biggest hurdle. Volunteer Carl Silverman said, “Whether we’ll win the election, we’ll see…”
