    RTW is deliberate pure political persecution. The telltale:
    " employer associations themselves refuse to live by the same rules they seek to impose on unions.

    In Owensboro, Kentucky, the local Building Trades Council decided to withdraw its membership in the local Chamber of Commerce, but asked if it could still receive full member benefits even though it would no longer be paying dues. Absolutely not, answered the Chamber. “It would be against Chamber by-laws and policy to consider any organization or business a member without dues being paid. The vast majority of the Chamber’s annual revenues come from member dues, and it would be unfair to the other 850+ members to allow an organization not paying dues to be included in member benefits.”

    "destroy collective bargaining"
    Inaccurate. The fascists want to retain representative bargaining for *only themselves*.

    In general, the Koch Party demands laws and court rulings that grant the KP greater legal rights and social benefits than the majority of persons have.

    I also registered to vote and registered for the draft to support and defend this country.
    I got a job and yes, I began paying taxes.
    If you don't do the same - don't vote - don't stay here -

    Keep up the good work, Mary.
    You're doing Wisconsin, and potentially the entire nation, a great service by continuing to report in a concise manner the many disturbing issues that reveal Walker's unfortunate ineptitude and deceptive nature.

    The only way to truly know what you're getting is to buy local. Most of us in the U.S. have small farmers within driving distance. Find them! It's so much healthier for you and better financially for the small farmers. That way you also know how the animals are being treated. Good luck!
