    Can anyone answer the question about the handcuffing of people? The caller didn't answer the quesiton and I am wondering – who was handcuffing whom? Were the police coming into Madison trying to enforce the law being handcuffed by fellow officers in Madison? Were police coming into Madison cuffing protesters? If you know, please share!

    FDR was right. It is often quoted, but 100% correct, when he said:

    "All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.

    Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of Government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable."

    (Source: http://www.conservativeblog.org/amyridenour/2011/2/19/text-of-fdr-letter-opposing-public-employee-government-union.html I note the source as many on the Left ar trying their best to deny the leftist liberal icon FDR ever said this.)

    Time to fire the striking officers, IMHO. In Madison, the Republican majority needs to take advantage of these obstructors' absence and pass some laws while the "fleebagger" Democrat Senators are striking (which is what they are doing by fleeing the state).

    For example: make it grounds for firing and/or removal from office if a public servant (not "government worker") obstructs justice and government functions, thus violating their sworn oath when taking their position as a public servant.

    This could result in a lot of progress, in the right direction!
