    UNIONS THREATEN BUSINESS

    That's a nice business you got there. Pity if anything were to happen to it if, say, you didn't toe the line and denounce Governor Walker like we're asking nice-like.

    March 10, 2011
    Mr. Tom Ellis, President
    Marshall & Ilsley Corporation
    770 N. Water Street
    Milwaukee, WI 53202
    SENT VIA FASCIMILE AND REGULAR MAIL

    Dear Mr. Ellis:
    As you undoubtedly know, Governor Walker recently proposed a “budget
    adjustment bill” to eviscerate public employees’ right to collectively bargain in
    Wisconsin. ..

    As you also know, Scott Walker did not campaign on this issue when he ran for
    office. If he had, we are confident that you would not be listed among his largest
    contributors. As such, we are contacting you now to request your support.

    The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor
    Walker’s efforts to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public employees in
    Wisconsin. While we appreciate that you may need some time to consider this
    request, we ask for your response by March 17. In the event that you do not
    respond to this request by that date, we will assume that you stand with
    Governor Walker and against the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters,
    and other dedicated public employees who serve our communities.

    Once again, there is no right to collectively bargain. Read the constitution again and cite me chapter and verse where it says so.

    You don't understand the constitution - its a document that limits the scope and powers of the federal government, not a document that enumerates the rights of the people.

    So I'm afraid that the burden is actually upon YOU to cite chapter and verse, where in the constitution it says that restricting the ability of citizens to collectively bargain is a power that the federal government has.

    *sigh* The Constitution does limit the scope of the Federal government, yes, then show me in each states Constitution where it says that collective bargaining is a right. I'll wait. Oh, and to answer your question it doesn't say either way hence it is not AN ENUMERATED RIGHT. Wow you have a thick skull. Collective or individual bargaining is up to the entities you moron.
