Using legal chicanery during the absence of 14 Democrat senators, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and the Republican legislatures successfully busted the collective bargaining rights of the Green Bay Packers.
"Since they are the only team in America to be owned by the public," Walker said, "they are therefore public sector workers, who now have no more bargaining rights than Girl Scouts at a bake sale. I don't know how much more money this legislation will save the tax payers, but, in case of a lockout, it guarantees the Packers will repeat as NFL champions."
When questioned about the latest legislative stunt pulled off during the the Democratic 14's absence, Senate Democrat leader Mark Miller said that they didn't really care about the passing of the new bill one way or the other, adding. "We have been staying in Illinois for so long we have actually become Bears fans."
