Wisconsin Democrat State Senator Gets a Care Package From the Unions

Well, they're not completely sure the source is the unions, but it seems pretty clear the message comes from them:
An envelope full of feces was sent to the office of state Sen. Lena Taylor, D-Milwaukee.

Taylor spokesman Eric Peterson said the envelope was discovered in the state Capitol mail room Friday morning because of its smell, and staff members alerted him.

The return label read, "Milwaukee Trade Unions Want The Iron Mine."
Democrats who have gone environwacko, as many of them have, have placed themselves in a precarious position with a lot of their union base. Their opposition to good union jobs such as mining in Wisconsin, or the 20,000 jobs that would be generated by the Keystone XL pipeline, are taking money right out of the pockets of union members...and union dues right out of the pockets of the union thugs. At some point the unions will figure out that environmental radicalism as practiced by many Dem politicians will kill their livelihood.

But in Wisconsin that brings extra difficulties for the unions because the mining bill is supported by Gov. Walker, old Beelzebub himself according to the lefties. But Gov. Walker knows the mining can be done with relative safety and the state needs the jobs. The unions are going to have to figure out a way to straddle the fence - a way to support the mining bill without explicitly supporting Gov. Walker.

At least until they wise up and change parties.

This demonstrates one of the problems of playing 'identity politics' -eventually you're going to have two constituencies who's interests oppose each other, and a choice between them must be made. governor Walker is trying to do what's in the best interest of the state -as he should, and as a result, he's NOT the one getting sent poop-mail.

If you're mayor, do what's in the best interest of your town.

If you're governor, do what's in the best interest of your state.

If you're president, do what's in the best interest of the country.

It's a split between the private-sector unions and the public-sector unions. Public sector is bigger.
Private sector pays taxes all over the place.
