The Sorry State of Wisconsin

In a petulant fit of toddler-type anger, Scott Walker returned to the State of Wisconsin after losing all credibility in the first round of thinning the presidential hopefuls herd and destroyed the civil service code set in place by a truly great thinker, Bronson Lafollette.

Its sad that this one man traveling idiot circus can wreak so much havoc in a State.  First, he vilified all teachers and public employees and convinced the weak-minded people in the state that these people were dangerous and ruining the economy.   Now he made it easy for the same group to never get fair treatment or fair wages by their employers, if they're lucky enough to get hired at all.

There is something terribly wrong with people like Scott Walker; their viciousness and hatred for certain groups of people, their unrelenting need to destroy the middle class; and their overall incompetence in making things better except for the obscenely wealthy 1%.  These things they do are symptomatic of the disease of the brain called Greed Syndrome.   It's a terrible disease that apparently can't be cured.  So we can only hope that there is a fatal element to this syndrome, and these people will die a painful death.

Scott Walker will never win the governorship of the State of Wisconsin again.  Others like him, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, and U.S. Senator Ron Johnson will never win another term.  They have proven themselves to be anti-democracy, and the truth is, as slow as some Wisconsin residents have been to wake up to the lies, they are fully able to see the truth when it is smashed into their faces.

Scott Walker is angling for a piece of the 1% pie after he's thrown out of office - maybe working for a think tank.  Talk about a vacuum.  Abele already has money and apparently suffers short man syndrome to a very dysfunctional degree.  Ron Johnson is your common garden variety idiot.

So go!  Go Russ Feingold.  Go Chris Larson.  And go citizens of Wisconsin in ridding yourself of the people who have run your state into  the ground.

Trump vs. the Pope

In a rare show of diplomacy, Donald Trump didn't respond with his usual verbal slurs against the Pope.  (Must not offend the Catholic vote.)

My big worry is that Donald Trump's wall along the border will do less to keep people out than it will prevent people from leaving.  And as this presidential campaign year proceeds, I think I'd really like to leave this country.  I think a lot of people would like to leave the country.  I think a lot of people are saying, "what country"?

In defense of President Obama not going to Scalia's funeral --- a big who cares.  I admire Obama for not being a hypocrite.  Besides, I heard anyone gazing at Scalia's corpse could suffer corneal burns in a last show of power by the leading dog of useless dogma.

Ted Cruz is still the scariest candidate out there. 

My heart says Bernie, but my head says deconstruct, not detonate.

GOP Today

I have (very few) friends who claim to be Republicans and align themselves with conservative and fundamentalist policies.

I try to have respect for these people and their viewpoints in the only way I know how to do that ---- I don't discuss politics with them.

However, as I watch the country disintegrate into a pile of stinking $hit at the hands of Republicans, my gloves are off.

Here is what I have to say to my "Republican" friends.

You support a plan and a party mired in evil.
You are spoon-fed rotting offal everyday, and you seem to like the taste.
You take no responsibility for finding truth --- which makes everything in your own life a lie.
You have no sense of justice.
You are intimately involved in the demise of a once great democracy.
You are too ignorant to understand any of the above.

You can still be my friend, but I will not mourn your dismay when the karma that is surely headed your way takes you down.  In fact, I will remind you regularly of your own role in your own downfall, and tell you that you do not have my sympathy.  In fact, watching your righteousness fail will be a richly satisfying entertainment for people who actually care about other  human beings.
