Having reposted the vile Chicago Tribune cartoon that compares the state’s public service workers – police, janitors, secretaries, teachers, professors and others to a dog with its sex organs removed, my blood pressure has not yet returned to normal.
Earlier today I posted how this fight was never just about pensions.
It was always about the future of working families at a time when the countries gap between rich and poor was at historic proportions.
You need look nor further than the cartoon in the Chicago Tribune to see the truth of this.
To the rich and the powerful and those in the state legislature who do their bidding, we are no more than fixed dogs.
But that cartoon has it all wrong.
The Democratic and Republican legislators who voted to take away tens of thousands of dollars from my pension are the fixed lap dogs of the 1%.
And those of us who have served the people of this state?
There is plenty of bite left in this old dog.
You watch and see.
