Shock Doctrine, U.S.A.

If you have been following the national news at all lately, you know that protests against Gov. Walker of Wisconsin, the man who is trying to abrogate collective bargaining rights for state employees, have been getting all the attention for the last few days.

As Paul Krugman wrote in his post in today's New York Times, titled Shock Doctrine, U.S.A., collective bargaining is not the only target of Gov. Walker's budget plan: privatization by edict of the state's resources is another, just as worrisome target.

Please stand with the protesters in Wisconsin, as the International Association of Fire Fighters has done. It's not their future alone that is at stake.
