Left Wingers to Finance Wisconsin 14 – CDN Fights Back

One of my readers forwarded an email to me asking if there was something Conservatives could do to counter a destructive move by the liberals.

Mr. Editor,

My Daughter is signed up on some left wing-extremist web site and sent this to me asking for money. She thinks that because I was in a union that I would support this mess. I was in a union because I had no choice. If I wanted that job, I had to pay union dues. Scott Walker is giving workers the individual right to elect to not have union dues come out of their paychecks and go to causes they don’t support. I wish there had been a Governor Walker in my working years.

Here’s the email, is there a way to counter this?

Over the weekend, I sent an email asking you to support the 14 Wisconsin Democratic Senators who left the state to prevent Republicans from passing a bill that strips workers of their collective bargaining rights. Now, I’m emailing to ask you again.

Please, donate $14 to the Wisconsin State Senate Democratic Committee, $1 for each of the heroic Senators.

There are 19 Republicans in the state Senate, but 20 Senators are needed for a quorum to pass the bill. If even one Democratic Senator returns to Wisconsin, s/he will be rounded up by the state police, brought to the state Capitol, and the bill will pass. If that happens, tens of thousands of workers will lose their rights.

Senate Republicans are pressuring the 14 Democrats by passing bills that require the presence of only 17 Senators. Further, groups funded by Wall Street are running television ads attacking the Dems.

The strain on these Democrats is immense. We must serve as a counterweight by providing tangible support. That’s why at Daily Kos we’ve added the Wisconsin State Senate Democratic Committee to the Orange to Blue 2012 page. The sole purpose of this committee is to support the Democratic nominee in each of Wisconsin’s 33 state Senate districts.

Please, donate $14 to the Wisconsin Senate Democrats, $1 for each of the heroic Democratic Senators. Your contribution will make an immediate, substantive impact on a huge political fight.

In solidarity,
Chris Bowers
Campaign Director, Daily Kos

YES! There is something we can do about it. It’s time to .. Give ‘em Hell!! I haven’t received a response to phone calls and email to understand where exactly we should send the money, so I have included the emails and office addresses of every one of the grandest 19!

We can send $5 dollars to each of the Republican Senators. Spend $20 dollars of your own money and pick four Senators to send it to. Post a comment as to whom you supported so we support them all. As the founder and editor-in-chief of ConservativeDailyNews.com, I will personally contribute $40. First comment will show who I am sending money to. Will you join me?

    Joke of the Day :
    A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party, and the CEO of a large corporation are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies…looks at the tea partier and says, “Watch out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie.”

    Corporate America loves conservative folks for helping to advance their agenda, which they’ve convinced them is also in their own best interests. They are the true enemy of the middle class, not unions which have helped to raise the standard of living for everyone and increased the rights of all workers, something that wealthy corporate donors cannot claim.

    • A more realistic scenario:

      So in your magically, unrealistic scenario, exactly where did those cookies come from? I want to understand precisely what the CEO is taking 91.6% of. Your story is a logical fallacy invented by your union masters.

      “If you choose unity over individual liberty, you have simply volunteered yourself into the company of slaves.”

    I think it’s funny that the left-wing lemmings are saying it is union busting to give workers the right to choose to spend 1,000.00 a year to support an organization who said itself it is only about political power and not about helping people keep their jobs. Funny how Dems call Republicans cowards who are actually doing the hard part and making people get used to the fact that in order for the state to get better you can’t listen to a couple of fat rich people who want to steal money from people’s pockets and call it protecting workers rights when really all they’re doing is making it easier to take people’s money and ignore those who give them the money. It’s funny how the Pro-union people for the most part are Jesse Jackson’s age. All we have to do is wait for the dinosaur’s to move out of the way and the real work can begin to restore login and common sense. Dems are proving time and again that logic and common sense are items that are rejected by Dems as they love to bask in a self-made spotlight and be total hypocrites who feel they can do whatever they want because they feel that they’re entitled to everything and that if you’re a Dem you deserve everything provided for freely by the Gov’t and how dare the gov’t ask it’s people to take care of themselves.

    Wisconsin is, scratch that, was a wonderful state until Scott Walker showed up. A little history lesson. Before becoming governor, he was Milwaukee’s county exec. There he fired workers in Milwaukee, replaced them with out of state workers headed up by a criminal. Long story short, Milwaukee’s been forced to rehire and repay state workers to clean up after Walker.

    Furthermore, if collective bargaining for teachers is such a detriment to students as Walker seems to suggest, why is it that Wisconsin students’ SAT scores are second only to Iowa, another collective bargaining state while the states with 44th, 47th, 48th, 49th, and 50th worst SAT scores are states that prohibit collective bargaining.

    It’s one thing to try to make an argument for your position based on facts. But at this site, most are just making ideological arguments that have no basis in reality.

    I am a non-union, proud Wisconsinite. I would like to retire to a warmer location but haven’t been able to find a southern state that comes close to the high standards for education, integrity, and good government that we have in this state. I’ll put on boots and shlep around in the snow rather than endure the disrespect afforded education and government in many of the more temperate areas of the country. So I applaud and support those 14 Senators who love Wisconsin enough to leave it in order to save it. And for those of you who weren’t lucky enough to have been educated in Wisconsin, you are probably unaware of the fact that Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, did the same thing as the Wisconsin 14. He fled the Illinois legislature in order to stop a vote that would have ended the Illinois state bank. You all should come to Wisconsin. We could teach you a thing or two.
