Just Remember, It Could Be Worse

This ties in with the post directly below - I guess our state employees should be glad we didn't elect a total whackjob like Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin, who practically eliminated collective bargaining, and then decided to play big man with the guns:

Gov. Scott Walker says the Wisconsin National Guard is prepared to respond wherever is necessary in the wake of his announcement that he wants to take away nearly all collective bargaining rights from state employees.

Walker said Friday that he hasn't called the Guard into action, but he has briefed them and other state agencies in preparation of any problems that could result in a disruption of state services, like staffing at prisons.

Walker says he has every confidence that state employees will continue to show up for work and do their jobs and he's not anticipating any problems.

But just in case, he wanted to alert his own personal army to be to ready quell any uprising from the citizens of Wisconsin.

Wow. Just, wow.

Now that those Egyptian protesters have some time on their hands, maybe we could get them to show up here in America and help us out...
