    His special interests are whatever the Koch Brothers and other out of state Sugar Daddy's tell him his special interests are.

    But if you're following the walker Plight you may know it all might be a mute point soon. Rumor mill has it that he may have bigger problems than the recall. Stay tuned.....

    By the way, who on this thread is from Wisconsin? Those who aren't, all due respect, but mind your own goddamn business. This is a WI state issue and Walker may need your out-of-state help, but we don't. We will handle him in our own way and put the brakes on all this out of control rightwing hogwash.

    Lets say you get rid of Walker, then what? How will a democrat replacement handle your budget problems?

    Well, let's not be too certain that Walker's a goner yet. There are some that still stand beside him. Not to mention that we reasonably expect Walker to get a LOT of corporate sugar daddy money from out of state because this, truth be known, is much bigger than Wisconsin. This will set the ball in motion as to how Americans, as a whole, take to the opposing ideas of government for the people or government for the rich and powerful.

    Nobody wants to take money out of their pockets and send it elsewhere. Right, left, we all feel that way. But as the old saying goes, "Only two things are sure in life. Death and taxes."

    But if it is a forgone conclusion that we all must pay taxes. The problem, it seems to me, lies within that some folks prefer said taxes to go to roads, education, healthcare, defense, and other means of supporting the people who are paying those taxes.

    Then there are Americans, equally as valuable, who prefer to take that tax money and give it back to big corporations and big CEO bonuses, send it overseas to buy corporate and political influence, squander the assets of our defenses, (thus requiring more defense spending in building the defenses back up,) by conducting unnecessary military operations around the world. They seem to prefer to continue the "rinse and repeat" perpetuation of the war machine, for the good of the economy, rather than invest in alternate energy solutions. These sort of Americans also tend to have a higher proportion of citizens who think it is their right to mandate their version of values upon the masses as a whole and expect the government to back their opinions of how you and I should all live.

    There is the problem as it appears to me. That's what this vote means to Wisconsites.

    I identify with the first bunch of people I mentioned. That's why you will see me casting my vote for whoever is running against Scott Walker.

    I appreciate the candor, but that doesnt really answer my question.

    Re: Wisconsin governor won't challenge recall signatures

    Dammit! I just typed a 4 paragraph response and the damn thing did not submit. I'll try this again. Oy vey!

    I wrote:

    You are correct sir. I did not answer your question. All apologies. I do tend to get sidetracked. I am having more senior moments than I seem to remember.

    But to answer your question directly, to be honest, I am not sure. The first thing the dem's might do is undo all the crap Walker has screwed up. That will set us back on an even keel. of course, that means that corporate taxes Walkers erased, that sent the state into tailspin, might have to go back in place. I'm sure our Koch Brother types will be none too happy about that. I don't have all that much faith in democrats either so it should be interesting and telling to see how they handle it.

    But it's like this, if you are out in your boat and you lose a rudder, and your boat crashes into the rocks and water is rushing in, you're first objective is to repair the hole and THEN work on your rudder.

    Scott Walker is the hole.

    I'm sure you realize, but this isn't goig to be possible. Even if they happen to recall Walker, they will not have numbers to undo anything.

    Oh brother.... Not the big bad Koch Bros. again...I am disappointed Cap, from supposed 'Independent' to full fledged lefty complete with regurgitated union crap eh?

    How about the 'special interests' that are invading your state to lead you by the nose? Unions, bussed in agitators, thugs to intimidate state legislators....etc....And you just lay down for them eh? Real principled guy ain't ya?

    But if you're following the walker Plight you may know it all might be a mute point soon. Rumor mill has it that he may have bigger problems than the recall. Stay tuned.....
    You ain't got bupkis. If you thought you had something you'd list it.

    Imagine going to McDonald's and you order a Big Mac. You come home and there are 2 Taco Bell tacos in your bag instead.
    Union shills, and pension leaches didn't vote for Walker in the first place, so y'all ought to be happy you still have collective bargaining.

    He pulled the wool over the eyes of Wisconsites and we are none to happy about it.
    Nope, he campaigned saying exactly what he would do. You just thought he never would get it done. Now you're crying like the cheese ran out.

    By the way, who on this thread is from Wisconsin? Those who aren't, all due respect, but mind your own goddamn business. This is a WI state issue and Walker may need your out-of-state help, but we don't. We will handle him in our own way and put the brakes on all this out of control rightwing hogwash.
    Um, no. Free country for the moment progressive. WI obviously can't handle their own business otherwise they wouldn't have had to have a governor resort to this in the first place...See Union boy, that is what greed gets you cheeseheads. You thought you had a sweet deal, a cush job, nice pension, full health care...But your greed made you the target in hard times, and now you have nothing but tears of regret, and self imagined tough talk on an internet message board. How laughable.
