My first reaction to news that the police in Madison went back on their intention to clear the state Capitol of overnight protesters was one of indignation. This certainly seemed like a manifestation of the police union intent to side with their fellow union protesters against state authority.
But let’s keep things in perspective.
The unions and Democrats got trounced in November at the voting booth. The paltry turnout around the country despite a call by MoveOn.org and the unions for massive protests Saturday demonstrates that nothing has changed.
The voters understand that we cannot continue along the path we are on, and those who stand in the way of the voters have little chance for success.
The public sector unions and their supporters control the rotunda at the state Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin, but their control over state finances is coming to an end.
They are the Kings of Nothing, and they know it.
(As an aside, watching this video reminds me how great it was to grow up in the 70’s.)
