    Any takers?
    You are 100% correct on that one. Were you following Operation Burn Notice on Facebook? It was the plan by a lot of assholes to pretend that they were collecting signatures for the recall, and then burn all the signatures they collected. This is why a number of people signed petitions twice. It was to make sure that their signatures were going to count, in light of the fact that some assholes were planning to burn a lot of them, instead of turning them in. To Walker's credit, he publicly denounced this tactic, but it did not stop the tactic from happening. Facebook finally shut Operation Burn Notice down, and there is a criminal investigation going on over it. Whoever gets indicted over Operation Burn Notice is looking at a LOT of prison time.

    That's wonderful news MrV__Sometimes the wheels of justice turn slowly in favor of the good guys.

    Hopefully someday we will live in a nation free of the corrupt, crime ridden, job destroying, socialist unions.

    Someone should do a 50/50 with an over/under on how many dead people, duplicates, pets, etc... are going to on that list. Proceeds go to like the Cancer Society or something....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Frankly, LBJ got more of our sons killed that 10 W's. And Obama has insured that Americans tomorrow will suffer more than anything he inherited.

    But I agree. One state at a time. We are going to show liberalism for being the ethically and financially bankrupt wet blanket that it is. No better place to start than with the dimented selfish "me first" liberals of Wisconsin.

    Well, it you're going to compare deaths in Vietnam to deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, you're going to have to account for the role that technology, environment and other factors played in reducing deaths during the latter wars. And Obama hasn't really ensured any suffering.

    That's probably not going to happen. Liberalism, like conservatism, is a set of philosophies that resonates with a lot of Americans and much of it is based in a set of ethical principles that many people identify with. I do agree that financial restraint could have a larger a place is liberal policies.

    Well, the reason they got 1 mil instead of 540,000 was because they wanted to make sure that they would have enough valid signatures when all the erroneous ones were cancelled out. It seems that a lot of conservatives in this thread are unaware of the fact that those collecting the signatures were well aware that all of the signatures would be thoroughly checked. The Democrats expected some 'duplicates and dead people' which is why they vastly overcompensated. If you're looking for a 'gotcha' moment out of this, you're not going to get it.

    If there's one thing I'm sure of, is that there will be multiple problems with the 1 million list of names... it's just a prelude of what's yet to come. Just wait for the other shoe to drop.

    I was referring to economic suffering right here at home. Courtesy the "food stamp President" Barack Obama.

    LBJ got tens of thousands of our boys needlessly killed. Write a letter to the kids of those men, and blame a "lack of technology". Good luck with that, btw. Then tell it to the kids of the 9-11 victims. Guess that was all the GOP's fault too.

    Like I said, Obama hasn't really ensured any suffering. He's just ensured that your dislike of him which isn't surprising since you disagree with him politically.

    This is has nothing to do with what I said.

    He's such an inept jackass that his campaign them is "don't blame me". Just how much thought do I need to put into considering him for reelection ? Do I come across as some lockstep Obama supporter who is too stupid to think beyond adoration of that buffoon ?
