union bashing and austerity--reducing government salaries is not a reaction to the depression the feudal elite have manufactured is a fascist/nazi-like agenda.  The plan is to eviscerate the middle-class and upper lower class to 'flatten' the world (outsourcing and globalization is part of that plan)  by reducing salaries, the dictator in Wisconson and the fascists in federal and state governments backed by poerful elite fsscists reduce the prestige of the job--all gov. jobs, and reduce th eposition--all positions to low-income, low-education jobs, even part-time, so that you end up with a slavish mentality in these positions, un-educated, beasts of burden--soldiers--who shooot first and never ask questions, just take orders.  The fedual lords can then do anything they want without internal speculation or debate.  It's nazism.  Smart people rise up, TV watchers don't.  
I think its important ot remebere this is not, never was reactionary policy.  The recession/depression was manufactured as was 911 before it, as is austerity.  Its the long con.  Its an agenda.  Rise up America!
