The Secretive Scott Walker

Scott Walker doesn't advertise where his campaign headquarters are, for fear protesters or egg throwers, or projectile vomiters might show up.

Scott Walker doesn't advertise his schedule for fear that the crowd, whom his scheduling office has complete control over, won't include any REAL people who can't stand this M.F. and might raise a stink when his boring face actually shows up.

Is Scott Walker building a bunker in the capitol where he can hide?  Sound familiar?  Berlin?  1945?  Are there similar comparisons to be drawn?

I'm sure Scott Walker, as well as his band of zombie followers, think they are cagey.  I would prefer to set the record straight.  Scott Walker is a much-reviled, yellow-bellied coward and he plays it close to his chest because he's afraid of conflict and bad press. 

Too Late.

Thank you, Kathy Nickolaus

The Milwaukee Journal reported today, that Kathy Nickolaus (she of the election debacles in Waukesha County) will not seek another term as County Clerk.  Thank you!  It is, perhaps, the first time I've ever seen someone ill-equipped to handle a government job actually step down instead of get promoted.

In honor of this wise (forced?) decision, I, too, have decided to not do things I'm ill-suited to do.  Like work.  Please send $100 to the CitizenXtrish Not Very Charitable Trust to make this possible.  Your dollars could insure my future as a carefree human being, and you won't miss that money a bit.  In fact, unburdening yourself of excess dollars could easily and in so many ways make your life happier.  Note:  I do not intend to declare any of this money as income, so no receipts will be forthcoming and I will deny any knowledge of all contributions.

I think I may well be suited to the life of a billionaire!

Recall Primary Coming Up

I take a few moments here to remind all citizens of Wisconsin to vote in the next two elections.  Your voice can be heard via your vote. 

Scott Walker is our governor largely because of voter apathy last go-round.  Don't take your rights for granted, and please exercise them through the polls.  Don't expect that others will save the day; do your part to save the state and the country.

Vote as if your life depended on it because it actually does.

The Secret Service

Well, certainly its no secret that these guys are a little sexually frustrated.  Alright, a lot.

But why the HELL is this national news every dang morning?  Doesn't America have more important things to worry about; like the collapsing economy, global warming, fascists trying to take over the country, billionaires not paying taxes......the list is endless.  But the focus, right now, here in America, it is the sexual behavior of a bunch of secret service agents in Columbia, where, by-the-by, prostitution is legal.

Here's the point......I don't care.  Unless these guys were charging for prostitution services on their government-issued American Express cards, I really don't care.  And neither should you.

The Difference

Why would Mitt Romney, or any billionaire for that matter, want to be the president of the United States of America?

There are two types of people who seek high office; those who thirst for power, and those who thirst for justice.

President Obama thirsts for justice, so let's reelect him.  We have enough blood sucking zombie millionaires in America without having one at the helm.

Here in Walker World, the morning headlines said that Scott Walker saved the State of Wisconsin an astronomically large sum of money, a billion dollars. 

Uh huh.  Right.  Scott Walker, obviously, is no dang accountant.  What he is is a lip smackin' lying S.O.B., but he's obviously in political trouble, so the lies need to get larger.  What amazes me is how many Wisconsinites actually believe the things Scott Walker says.  Scott Walker's accounting can't really explain HOW he saved Wisconsin a billion dollars, but that goes hand in hand with how Scott Walker can't explain why Wisconsin lost more jobs than any other state in the union under his tutelage.

Scott Walker is a freak of nature.  Unfortunately, Wisconsin has become a side show carnival for the ultra rich, the wing nut right and the tea bags. 

I can't wait to move --- and I think once I do, I'll give up paying attention to politics and live my golden years in the same ignorant bliss the republicans here in Wisconsin live in.

The Juxtaposition of Scott Walker Policies

Interesting.  Same newspaper.  Same page.  First, the Koch Brothers, those fascists of industry, gave $1,000,000 to the Walker recall election, via the Republican Governors Association.  Obviously, really rich people want Walker and like-minded nonthinkers to stay in power so they can rape and destroy the people and the planet at a much faster rate.  Counting money seems to be their addiction and obsession.  Their organization, Americans for Prosperity, should really be called something that closer resembles what they do.  Like, "F*ck You, I'm Rich", or "Bring Back The Depression".

Second, teachers come under attack again, with Walker finding new ways to screw them out of money, now by not giving them appropriate or fair pay raises.  What the hell did a teacher do to Walker that made him hate this particular group of professionals so thoroughly?  My guess is a teacher actually told him the truth; he was dumb and should maybe go to tech school and become a barber.  Shave something besides budgets at struggling employee's expense.

Next, Walker reinstated the bonus system and big raises for certain public employees, i.e., those certain to support him in his recall campaign.  This from the man who verbally regurgitates wasteful government spending at every opportunity.  Trust me, no public employee goes into public service for the salary.  Unless you're very well-connected via your nose up Scott Walker's a$$, public service is never an opportunity to strike it rich. 

I can only hope that Tom Barrett, who can win the recall election against Scott Walker, gets some big money from somewhere.  But even if he doesn't, his truth is bigger than all the the big lies Scott Walker tells, and people are pretty convinced that Barrett isn't a liar.  In my mind, that is all it should take to win an election.  I have nothing against Kathleen Falk, in fact, I admire and respect her.  I just think Wisconsinites can't afford to take any chances in the recall election; and Falk might be too risky of a candidate.  On the bright side, there will no voter I.D. requirement at the polls for this election, which, hopefully, will bring out the people who can really make a difference in this election, and whom have the most to lose - the disenfranchised.

Scott the Rot Walker in Illinois

Well, it just fits.  All big crooks found money in Illinois.  Dillinger.  Capone.  Walker. 

It's interesting that our delusional governor would speak to a crowd of 250 in Springfield, while thousands of Walker protesters marched outside the venue.

Walker doesn't get it.  No surprise there.  I still don't get how this clown of a human being managed to find himself in a position of power.  The lunatics continue to run the asylum here in America.

The Spending Problem = The Lying Problem

Every dang time I turn on the television, I hear pundits, especially of the republican persuasion, regurgitating the same vomitus, i.e., government too big, cut spending by destroying the safety net for the most vulnerable people, ad infinitum.

Well, frankly, this country went into a recession during the George Dubya Bush era, and Barack Obama did not create the mess we're in, he very intelligently saved this country from the brink of disaster, brought to you and totally funded by republicans.

But republicans are savvy liars, they can lie their way out of everything.  This country is just a collection of wealthy liars.  I really want to develop a device that would expose a lie as soon as it left someones lips.  Like a portable electro-convulsive treatment machine, one would strap it to an ankle, and as soon as the lie was verbalized, ZAP, a potent shock to the prostate or mammary glands would render the liar speechless and panting in pain for, oh say, ten or twenty seconds.  Then, they'd wet their pants.  No more wondering about whose telling the truth.

Of course, we'd have to work out the bugs, like how to deliver a shock to someone without a set of cojones, like Scott Walker. I believe any man who is so threatened by women that his policies reflect a war against the opposite sex is completely ball-less. 

But, I live in a sci-fi dream world, I guess.

New Orleans

Went to visit my next home, so I have been gone for a week!  Louisiana politics --- I won't even get into it, because I'm still a Wisconsinite.  I will say, though, that personally, I enjoyed the drive-thru daquiri stands out in the country.  Passengers can drink alcohol in cars.  I'm sure NO driver ever would buy one. 

So, I need to catch up on Scott Walker's activities.  Heard he said he was a target to the NRA and that getting rid of him will set the country back ten years.  Hell, that's an improvement over the 100 years the republicans want to set it back. 

Anyhow, it was nice to take a break from the Walker Administration nonsense.  Back to reality, though.  I'm going to need a daquiri after I catch up on Wisconsin politics.

I Smell A Rat in Waukesha County

Again, Ms. Nickolaus has failed to deliver primary election results for Waukesha County on a timely basis.  What does this mean?  Ms. Nickolaus is incompetent in her role?  Well, yeah, that's a given.  What worries me is how Waukesha County may just be pivotal in the Walker recall election.......serve up a mess and skew the results.  Are we being set up for a major disaster come June?

Ms. Nickolaus claims that she tested the process for uploading election results, but that it ultimately failed on election eve.  Documentation was taped to the wall and all votes were hand tallied.  Sheesh.  Give me a break.  Ms. Nickolaus claims that she stayed up all night to finish the job.  Here's a question - does Waukesha County have an IT Department that could have resolved this problem immediately?  Did Ms. Nickolaus fail to call them?  What, exactly, is going on in Waukesha County and the election process?   Well, more proof that this County is a huge joke, inhabited by a citizenry that is willing to accept Ms. Nickolaus' ridiculous job performance. 

No big surprises there.  Brain power is at a minimum in Wisconsin's stinkiest county.  I think that Waukesha has proven itself to be incompetent to handle any type of election, and should be subjected to federal oversight come June.  Otherwise, I see the possibility of all kinds of tampering intended to benefit Scott Walker and his band of desperadoes.  Let's not let that happen.

Is Paul Ryan Insane?

I am going to reprint part of an article that recently appeared in The New York Times by Paul Krugman.  This article sheds light on what the House of Representatives did on Thursday, i.e., pass what was surely the most fraudulent budget in American history.

"The trouble with the budget devised by Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, isn't just its almost inconceivably cruel priorities, the way it slashes taxes for corporations and the rich while drastically cutting food and medical aid to the needy.  Even aside from all that, the Ryan budget purports to reduce the deficit -- but the alleged deficit reduction depends on the completely unsupported assertion that trillions of dollars in revenue can be found by closing tax loopholes.

And we're talking about a lot of loophole-closing.  As Howard Gleckman of the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center points out, to make his numbers work, Mr. Ryan would, by 2022, have to close enough loopholes to yield an extra $700 billion in revenue every year.  That's a lot of money, even in an economy as big as ours.  So which specific loopholes has Mr. Ryan, who issued a 98 page manifesto on behalf of his budget, said he would close?

None.  Not one.  He has, however, categorically ruled out any move to close the major loophole that benefits the rich, namely the ultra-low tax rates on income from capital.  (That's the loophole that lets Mitt Romney pay only 14 percent of his income in taxes, a lower tax rate than that faced by many middle-class families.)"

As Mr. Krugman states, the Ryan budget is a fraud and it is the most fraudulent budget in American history.

And for those of us who live in Wisconsin, we continue to be appalled and horrified by Paul Ryan.  Underneath his veneer of good old clean cut squeaky shine of a politician, lies an incredibly ugly monster with a voracious appetite for you - Joe Citizen.  Run for your LIFE!

April Fool's Eve - 2012

I live in Milwaukee.  Last night, March 31, 2012, an unbelievable stench descended on this city.  The wind was blowing from the west, Waukesha County, or as we call it here in Milwaukee, Knobville.

Like the booming and banging currently going on in Clintonville, WI (cluster earthquakes) (REALLY?), no one could figure out what that foul aroma was that filled the air, but it seemed to come right down the interstate into our fair city.

And then, it struck me.  Not one, not two, but three, count 'em, three, major a$$holes were giving speeches to 1,000 Knobs out there in no sidewalk land.  Gingrich, Romney and Santorum were politicking, fundraising, and stinking up Waukesha.  The people who came to support them (can you say dullards with no imagination) stunk just as bad the presidential wannabes. 

No wonder the smell of fecal decay was so prevalent in our city.  You can't put that many red-a$$ed baboons in the same room without fallout.  Give me a pig farm any day of the year.  It's an improvement over the unbelievable malodorous cloud that follows these yokels everywhere.
