    To be fair, I think that obviously the fears are that over time, benefits will erode. I also suspect that federal workers are compensated better than state workers though no idea if that's the case. That being said, I think it is important to realize that despite all the vitriol, hyperbole and hysteria, public union membership with their benefits are starting out at a fairly high point. Given the budget crises over the next few years, I suspect as well that this makes them an easy and juicy target (and rightfully so given their negotiations with highly sympathetic politicians who benefit from their support) before entitlement spending gets tackled.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/striking-the-right-bargain-in-wisconsin-/2011/03/14/ABL7cAh_story.html

    Imagine the outrage if government workers did not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits. Consider the massive protests that would be staged by labor leaders all across the country.

    Think I’m talking about Wisconsin? No, I’m talking about the federal government.

    Contrary to what the Obama administration would lead you to believe, most employees of the federal government do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits. That means the budget reform plan we signed into law in Wisconsin on Friday is more generous than what President Obama offers federal employees.

    WHY would I read an "opinion" piece written by Walker in the WP? I saw the author and clicked off it.

    Pure unadulterated bullshit from the horses mouth.

    hahahahaha! But Bill Gates didn't earn his money, right? He just came up with some grand scheme and sucked billions of dollars out of poor people...

    BTW, if you weren't greedy you'd give all your investments away to the poor. If you keep them, it's proof you're selfish and greedy at the expense of someone who is starving in this world and has nothing.

    The only real difference between you and me is that I'm honest with myself about the sad reality while you choose to go on pretending.

    Be honest about being a dictatorial controlling freak too..

    Wait, so you're telling me that you don't want me to take your will and assets and give it to charity? You are really that selfish and greedy? Where is the love? Where are the flowers?

    But that's just a decoy. The real issue here is why are you unwilling to give those assets to charity or to needy people?

    Because the assets wouldn't be "yours" if you gave them away already. D'oh.

    So back to the question, why are you unwilling to give them away? Is it greed, selfishness?
