This reminds me...

In 1981 nearly 75% of the PATCO (Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization) union members went on strike in the midst the nation's worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.  Whatever the merits of their case (and there weren't many), it was obvious at the time to even casual observers that it was really not a very politically wise moment to take it before the American people. 

Now, thirty years later, the members of the teachers union of Wisconsin, well-educated educators though they may be, have apparently learned absolutely nothing from that case.

What's that definition of insanity again?
