On the heels of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's history-making recall victory, the governor of nearby Indiana with his own record of curtailing union benefits suggested public-sector unions are past their prime and should be abolished.
"I think, really, government works better without them," Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels told "Fox News Sunday," when asked whether public-worker unions should even exist.
Public unions are inherently a scam. Since they effectively sit on both sides of the table, as they are part of the people who elect management, there is no true adversarial process.
The AFL-CIO needs to go too.
She said the debate should focus on how the private sector can offer better retirement benefits, not on how the public sector can offer fewer benefits.
There is no such thing. The simple fact of the matter is that you (all of us, to one degree or another) have lived a lie, born out of debt-financed leverage, and that what we (and they) tried to "achieve" is a ponzi scheme.
All of these schemes are public frauds as they rely on ever-higher amounts of debt to create "credit money" that is then spendable as if it was actual economic surplus. But it is not and never can be, and for this reason all such attempts are doomed to fail.
It is long past the time where we must hold the fraudsters, including those who made promises like this that were never able to be kept, to public account for their acts. Intentional and willful disregard for basic mathematical facts is not a mistake, it is fraud and it needs to be identified as such and then prosecuted.
