Gee. A celebration of workers and unions not wanting a rabidly anti-worker, anti-union Wisconsin Republican presence, especially after Scott Walker's attacks on worker rights?

Who could have predicted that?

CRY MOAR. Your tears and whining will fall on deaf ears.

Well, if you're going to talk the talk, you have to be willing to walk the walk. What element of Labor Day would Republicans wish to celebrate?

Seriously. Considering the holiday has its roots in the labor unions and didn't become a federal holiday until Grover Cleveland made it one as a concession to the unions after the Pullman Strike, I'm amazed any current Republican would want to be associated with Labor Day at all.

Seems fair.

Seems like a bad idea to me. Makes Democrats look petty.

After Scott Walker screwed workers over? Fuck that. Let the GOP whine. Labor Day is about celebrating workers and unions. The GOP has done anything but that in Wisconsin. They can throw their own parades if being excluded bothers them that much.

Actually Scott Walker didn't do anything that President Jimmy Carter, Union-Buster Extraordinaire, didn't do to Federal Unions a long time ago.

re: #8 Buck

Your attempts at invoking the Magical Balance Fairy fail, as usual.

Scott Walker and the Wisconsin GOP attacked workers and unions, and you want them to play nice and invite the Republicans along to parades meant to celebrate workers and unions? Pfft. Whatever.

So then maybe some gop organization can put together its own Labor Day parade? Why not? Maybe because most tea partiers and Republicans (not that there's really much difference) see the idea of honoring traditional labor as some sort of socialist plot.

Are pro-choice Democrats invited to anti-choice rallies? Of course not. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

If the GOP wants to march, they could organize a Corporation Day parade.

Is Jimmy Carter invited to this parade? If not, please kindly go back under your rock and downding random comments of posters you don't like, or whatever else you do for fun.

Actually, I take that back. Keep crying, wingnut tears are delicious.
