    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.

    Even if they turn the Senate, I wouldn't worry too much. They have another election coming up. The only people on the ballot this time were recalls for republicans. I am suprised no one tried to put the democrats up after they refused to come to work or even enter the state for months during the union bargaining rights vote.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    no good reason that government workers should be sheltered when nobody else is.
    To your point Thrilla, it's only a "shared sacrifice" if it's one side or the others majority of sacrifice. In this case, Unions were being shielded and when the shield was lifted, Wisconsin had to endure the stupidity of feeble unions trying to flex no muscle and getting soundly trounced in the process. Walker did the right thing for Wisconsin and the voters overwhelmingly agreed with him, to the chagrin of the Dems, union thugs and wannabe socialists.

    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.
    You complain about the rich, but the unions have been raping the state of Wisconsin as the facts identified. I get that taking things away from the unions was unpopular. It does't change however, that it had to be done and the voters in Wisconsin agreed by a landslide. As I stated to you some weeks ago, hope does not equal reality. Either we're all sharing the "shared sacrifice" including the unions or we're not. Wisconsin is now on a more level playing field than they were and now they can get back to the States business. Hopefully Walker will continue his actions.


    It a great day!

    Not really. the Colonials had been engaging in irregular warfare for decades before they turned it on the British. Ditto for the VC and NVA.

    But hey, if you think middle aged hippies angry about having to pay into their pension funds are going to be a match in urban guerrilla warfare against younger, trained personnel who grew up playing that game against much more dangerous opponents...

    well, it wouldn't be the first time that the Lefts inherently dictatorial tendencies led it down the path of violence to its' own detriment.


    In reality, turning the current left/right divide violent would be a horrible decision. Thus far lefties have generally gotten away with the scatterings of outbursts (longshoremen taking hostages, failed plots to blow up bridges) because they haven't had serious impact and haven't been widely known. If it were to become Part Of The Fight, however... you would eventually see retaliation. Someone would decide if the left wasn't going to play by the rules, then neither would he - and the likelihood of that someone being able to network people who would prove to be much better at directing violence than those who had originally sparked it is relatively high.

    Incidentally, it occurs to me - if the unions decide to turn violent, they are entering a poker game whose ante they can't buy.

    The Koch brothers, after all, can afford the worlds' best in security.

    What can you afford?

    All too typical I'm afraid. Those who are the quickest to point fingers at the other side for their misconduct are also the quickest to revert to hypocrisy and emulate that misconduct as a spoiled child throwing a tantrum throws themselves on the floor screaming and kicking when they don't get their way. Such lack of character speaks volumes and damages any credibility in grown up. With kids, they just need some discipline. I'm sure there will be some reports of violence today in Wisconsin - there's always a few who cannot cope.

    Psst. Public employees in Wisconsin already have the right to opt out of the union - and most of them are doing so. But good luck locking that barn now the horse is out.

    Probably. Meanwhile, the next time some guy in a Don't Tread On Me t-shirt talks about a revolution in Washington, we'll all have to hear about how Angry And Violent The Right Is.

    Walker just won more votes than he did in 2010 - but hey, good luck with that.

    Funny, the associated press through FNS states this...

    "The GOP swept all the contests except in Racine's 23rd Senate District. Democrat John Lehman led incumbent GOP Sen. Van Wanggaard by fewer than 800 votes with all precincts reporting, making the race too close to call."

    Now, just as it would be if this were the reverse with a rep leading by such a few votes, we need to look closely to verify the votes thoroughly...I wouldn't be surprised if some absentee ballotts showed up in a Union van at the last second.....
