    GOP pols told they're not welcome at Wausau Labor Day parade

    Community parades often feature local politicians waving to the crowds, but this year's annual Labor Day parade in Wausau may be short a few elected officials.

    That's because the head of the group that sponsors the Wausau Labor Day Parade, the Marathon County Central Labor Council, is telling Republicans lawmakers from the area that they're not welcome on Sept. 5.

    "Usually they've been in the parade, but it seems like they only want to stand with us one day a year, and the other 364 days they don't really care," said Randy Radtke, president of the Council. The Council is made up of about 30 local unions from the Marathon County area.

    In a statement, Radtke added that parade is intended to celebrate working men and women and what the labor movement has given them: weekends, a 40-hour work week, child labor protection and a safe working environment.

    He's talking about private unions, not public. But even Regan can be wrong. Unions are the most corrupt POS in the Country, outside the DNC

    I see you are attempting to blur the distinction between private sector unions and public employee unions by using Ronald Reagan's words about the former. Sort of dishonest of you, isn't it.

    But you may quote me: When public employees are allowed collective bargaining rights, liberty is crushed.

    This is why all of Obama's employees are not allowed BY LAW to unionize.

    FDR did not believe in allowing public unions, what is your opinion on that?
    How is obama working out for you?

    Aw The Unions widdle feelings are all hurt,....Walker is still Governor, Prosser's is still a Supreme Court Justice...so now their Little Parade will punish those evil Conservative Voters...
    ..............................
    Workers of the World Unite! ... against Republicans, conservatives, evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews, Tea Parties, the Constitution, the rule of law, patriotic Americans...
    ...........................
    They should at least be honest and carry the hammer and sickle at the head of the parade instead of hiding behind the flag and calling themselves Americans.
    .......................
    Looks like they will be marching scared this year.
    Kiss your tax exempt status goodbye then!
    ...........................
    No whites allowed for MLK parades?
    No straights for Gay Pride?
    ...and I guess no Dems on the 4th of July.
    ................................
    That's fine.
    If you are not going to be INCLUSIVE, you don't get a permit.
    Done,Next!
    .................

    I think I just heard a collective sigh of relief. An iron clad excuse to not march in another stupid parade.
