Even the other Republicans in the clown car are aghast by this.

2. All you have to do is look at public sector pay in NC where they did that in the 50's

 

to see where that leads.

Sure, we could still have a "union" but collective bargaining for all state and local employees of any kind is banned. So the union is just a professional organization or club with no power.

And, sadly, Democrats in our legislature are just as much for this as Republicans- they had a solid majority and the Governers seat until just a few years ago and chose to keep that ban in place.

3. Except that Snot Wanker will never be president.

He is no longer anything but a tiny blip on the political radar, and he'll soon disappear altogether, never to be heard from again. Sort of like Tim Pawlenty - another right-wing Midwestern governor who, as of 2008, was supposed to be an up and coming star. Where is he now? Well, he is a lobbyist for banks (Quelle surprise!), but at least we don't have to look at or listen to him any more. I assume when Wanker finally gives up because nobody is paying him any attention he will find a sweet job with the Koch cartel, or maybe cleaning the Koch brothers' swimming pools.
