But being from Texas, you don't care if the corrupt Scott Walker is recalled, right?
    Just about the entire state senate in WI is probably corrupt or in least it is in dereliction of it's duties, non the less one bastard comes out another one goes in. WI will deserve the government it gets and when the state eventually goes bankrupt, any bailouts should be denied and let the state fail, this will be the best wake up call for it's citizens. One thing about mathematics, it holds no favor to any party.

    And in another thread j-mac is protesting that people aren't giving a corporation the presumption of innocence.

So now any story of any possible wrong doing by Walker, people that work for him, friends, family, or even his dog .. . has liberals pissing in their pants over the story.


    That the only thing I can come up with, personally I'm more concerned with a half billion dollars of our tax money going out the window. But hey I can understand why a liberal doesn't want to talk about that, when they can talk about people using state computers illegally …. To my way of thinking .. . that is when I say .. Hmmmm interesting
    Rightwingers don't understand why anyone would be concerned about anyone else's welfare

    Hey, Washunut, I'm waiting for you to show me where I've been anti-semitic.

    I don't thinkn those are comparable, but no, standing around isn't against the law. No matter what we think about the KKK, it would not have gone to court.

    Sure it is, loitering. You can't just lurk wherever you want.

    And as you will recall, the police came and the guy with the baton went home. Just as any other such event would have been handled.

    The Democrats took 2 state senators from the Republicans despite the huge influx of cash from the Koch brothers and Karl Rove's American Crossroads.
    If only their stated goal wasn't to, you know, take the senate back - and with all of WI supposedly hating Walker and Act 10 that should have been easy - then you might have a point.

    As it is, all you have is justifications. Unions spent gobs of money on Kloppenburg and she kind of sort of came close to beating Prosser, which is supposed to prove that WI hates Act10 and sees Walker as a dictator. Then unions spent even bigger sums of money and promised that the WI senate would flip, but they only took two seats -one by only 1500 votes despite an affair, not living in district and allegations of cronyism -. Obviously WI is on your side - or so the justificaitons of the ridiculous go...

    You don't think white people standing outside a polling place with nooses in their hands would have gone to court under voter intimidation?

    If all they did was stand, no, I don't think it would have gone to court. You rarely go to court for standing.
