Wausau Mayor To Union Overlords: Cut The Crap Or No Parade
Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/30
The city of Wausau, Wisconsin has an annual Labor Day Parade, and the city spends a good chunk of change and uses a good chunk of man-hours in support of the Labor Day Parade. Well, the Union leaders decided to disinvite Republicans from the event this year, due to all the activity in Wisconsin this year.
Since the city of Wausau spends money on the parade, it is a sponsor of the parade and as such, the parade is required to be non-partisan. And the Union thugs (that’s all they are) decided to use the city’s dime to make the parade hyper-partisan. Well, the Mayor of Wausau gave the Union thugs an ultimatum: Either refund all of the city’s costs or re-invite the Republicans to the event, else the parade will be cancelled.
As Ed Morrissey notes, the Unions spent tens of millions of dollars on failure after failure after failure this year alone in Wisconsin. They likely don’t have all the “walking around” money necessary to just pay the city off, so their option truly is: Invite the Republicans or kill the Labor Day parade.
My question: Are the Union thugs going to continue to act like the spoiled brats they are and decide “if we can’t have it the way we like it, nobody can have it” or are they going to act like adults and permit the Labor Day parade to continue being non-partisan as it ever was? I would like to think the Union thugs would be adult for a change, but I’m not so sure they’re even capable of adult behavior anymore.
