Regardless of which side you take on the union issue in Wisconsin, calling this a “class war” and an attack on the “working people” is sheer nonsense. State officials are working people. State senators and congressional reps typically serve two jobs or more. A good friend of mine is a state rep. and works very hard for not much money. “Working people” elected fellow “working” citizens who are doing their jobs and trying to have a workable budget. But for Michael Moore to rage against wealthy people is a bit silly. He’ one of them. But as for “working people”? He’s not one of them.
As for subverting the democratic process…well, maybe you don’t like every aspect of this bill. But subverting the process also includes not showing up to vote. Brave.

P.S. Unionized industries are the most inefficient and lackluster of any. Think transportation, education, etc. I’m going to go take a shower now. I feel dirty.
