    That link is full of some fantastic quotes. My favorite so far is "Sounds like the fix is in. No way..."

    The conservative scumbags are on a roll...but the roll will end...it always does, when the working class private sector finally wake up and realize all they told them was just another rich mans lie.
    First in Bold. Last I recall it was the Dem's that did not want to pay taxes, does Timothy Franz Geithner come to mind?

    Second in Bold. You can thank Obamacare for that

    Third in Bold. You can thank Wisconsin that voted in Obama for that, after they voted in Obama they saw the error of their ways, and voted Republican

    Last in Bold. And why is that, I'll tell you, because of Obama's failures.

    Indeed it is. And it is a wiser path, too.

    Especially given that conservatives host an extremely disproportionate number of people who are already disposed to being very good at violence. For instance, conservatives have a much larger number of combat-arms veterans like myself who are trained in small demolitions, distance shooting, small unit tactics, urban maneuver; and who have put these skills to use testing them against Al-Qaeda and affiliated insurgent/terror networks in their own backyard. Something tells me it would be significantly easier for me, or anyone with my experience and training (which is not terribly extensive or unique) to track (say) the locations of the leadership of AFSMCE than it was to track AQI cell leadership. It wouldn't exactly be the first time we've snuck into a house at night while armed, or utilized good preparatory collection and rapid tactical interrogation to quickly tear apart entire networks. Unionista's who decided to turn to violence might find the mathematics of that decision turning rapidly against them.

    But that, of course, could only possibly occur if the increased ideological divide (which is occurring from both sides) became violent. Which, fortunately, as you point out, it will not .

    "...the governorís recall election victory sends a clear message that should resonate around the nation: The fiscal cancer devouring state budgets has a cure, and he has found it."

    Perhaps you missed the split decision last night in your fervor to attack unions and their members?

    Yes, THE Republicans held onto the Governors office - one branch of the government. But it appears that Democrats gained in the State Senate and now are a majority. The day of total GOP control of state government and having their way at will is now over.

    No doubt that in 1775 the exact same assessment of strengths could have been made regarding the colonies and the British army. No doubt the exact same assessment could have been made about the power of the US armed forces and the comparatively tiny Vietnamese insurgents in the early Sixties.

    I wonder why both turned out so differently then expected by those kind of traditional evaluations?

    if democrats gained the senate, then walker is effectively neutered....good. i'm betting he will still be only a one term governor.

    With all the votes in, they have about an 800 vote lead in the deciding district which would give them the majority in the State Senate.
