3. Your union foolishly raised wages and benefits to a point where it priced itself right out of a monopoly market -- really fucking hard to do, but as we have seen, possible if you are absolutely committed.

Instead of willing to be a nail fungus they were trying for ebola status. They are at least up in tapeworm territory. Yeah. I know. Too rough on tapeworms. Tapeworms don't try to tell your children what to think.

A true parasite will never kill its host. If the host will dies then so will the parasite. WI teacher union crossed over, such that, over time, the government would die. For Scott Walker, the choice is simple.
