Why Capper Is a Monomaniac

Capper's adventure in blogging has become dull, indeed. Every day, two or three times a day, it's bash Walker. Once a week it's butterflies; once a month it's go-up-north-and-bitch about Bush.

Or something.

Well, there's a reason that Capper and his masters at AFSCME are fixated on defeating Walker.

The central battle in our time is over political primacy. It is a competition between the public sector and the private sector over who defines the work and the institutions that make a nation thrive and grow.

Henninger's right, and the unions know it.

What's the big deal? Well, in Massachusetts:

...spending in specific public categories there skyrocketed the past 20 years (1987 to 2007).

Public safety: up 139%; social services, 130%; education, 44%. And of course Medicaid Madness, up 163%, before MassCare kicked in more Medicaid obligations.

Most likely, the Wisconsin numbers are comparable; it's possible that they're even worse.

And when FOUR mayoral candidates from a "conservative" area have already rolled over to Big Government without a peep, it's going to be worse.

You don't have to read his blog to figure out that the guy is pathetic. Read some of the comment "droppings" he leaves here on this blog.
