more commentary from Rivero that makes perfect sense:

This is NOT about unions, even though the media and government are trying to sell that idea.


The protests in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana (as of this morning) are AMERICANS who reject the idea that they must make do with less in order for Wall Street and Washington DC to have more.

Contrary to the media spin, these unions are NOT asking for more money or perks; they are simply demanding to keep that which is already theirs, against a government whose only mantra is, "You must make do with less so that we may have more" over and over, as Wall Street gets a $14 trillion bail out, looted form the people and the states, to save itself from going to jail over the fraudulent mortgage-backed securities scandal.

The government has no right to demand the people accept lowered standards of living so that Wall Street bankers can continue record-setting bonuses.

to give you an idea of the scale of the Wall Street taxpayer bailout - 1 trillion seconds equals 7646 years!  14 trillion seconds is over 104 THOUSAND YEARS! 

do not be duped into believing that we need to cut the pay and benefits of people making $60,000.00 a year - THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!
