    This is a little too "sloganistic" for me to really comment. It sounds like just a reworded way to say you support the Race To The Bottom.

    If you could expand slightly on which entitlements specifically, I would be able to better understand where you're coming from.

    All entitlements that last longer than six months...

    I'm gonna have to pull teeth I see,

    Unemployment benefits then? I can agree with this up to a point.

    The problem I see is that our safety net is about 5 feet lower than rock bottom. I'm not talking about those who try to game the system I'm talking about individuals who go to work, pay taxes, and through no fault of their own find themselves in a predicament.

    As far as I'm concerned, there could be a bridge in health insurance, food and housing subsidies, as well as unemployment insurance in those six months. We get very few walk-in applicants in our business (we employ entry level through PHD level technical professionals), and I get even fewer knocks at the door for any type of domestic services. The truly needy will be and generally are taken care of through charitable services...

    You ought to hear what our local firefighters have to say about Herr Walker. I pray his mansion never catches on fire.

    Maggie, I know what some propaganda outlets are saying. But I live here. My neighbors live here. From Hurley to Kenosha and Eau Claire to Green Bay..... Scott Walker is a poopy-head. Wisconsin has gone downhill since he walked in with no bottom in sight. But, soon enough, with the help of good folks such as yourself, he will be a national problem and we will be able to recover on a state level with him out of the way.

    I think you picked a losing horse in this debate. Have an awesome weekend.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
