Teachers in the state of Wisconsin, angry over having to pay their fair share via budget cutbacks, stormed the state Capitol building, demanding higher wages, paid vacation and the ouster of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarek.
"We've used a paid sick-day today to show the government of Wisconsin that we need to be fairly compensated," said a spokesperson for the Wisconsin teachers union. "Attica! Attica!"
Alarmed that such reforms are sprouting up across the country, public-employee unions and their Democratic allies are spoiling for a fight. The disruption in Wisconsin is part of a national strategy to halt unfavorable legislation, by any means necessary.
Representatives for the deadbeat unions, who have badly misread the public's support for their position, have organized more protests this weekend, geared to completely alienate the 90% of Wisconsin taxpayers who are NOT public employees, making them look even less sympathetic, and the cuts even more sensible.
"These a--holes are teaching my kid how to act in society?" asked one parent. "Great. Now I know why Wiasconsin is the Ethiopia of the USA."
