Come and visit Wisconsin... the cheese really stinks.

OK.  The State of Wisxonsin.... is really working hard to repair it's budget.... cause we are broke, see.

"The budget committee also voted Friday to ban using state money for abortions at the Madison Surgery Center, which is operated by the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority.
No abortions are done at the facility." Green Bay Press Gazette

Well that is hunky dory...Let's ban something that wasn't there... saves a lot of money... but it makes it seem like the STATE WAS DOING ABORTIONS... SO THE RADICAL RELIGIOUS WILL SUPPORT THE GOVERNOR... HE DONE BANNED ABORTIONS!!  What a crock of bullshit.

Plus... there is a new rule that would mandate contracting certain road to private companies. Oshkosh Norwestern
One of the committee's last votes was to approve a tax cut for manufacturers that eventually would cost the state $128 million a year. "..requires counties and municipalities to hire private companies to do any project that costs more than $100,000 and end equipment-sharing efforts that local officials say have kept the cost of local road maintenance down."  well, tax dollars SHOULD go to the highest bidder!! It is a shame that local and county governments provide services!!!

One of the committee's last votes was to approve a tax cut for manufacturers that eventually would cost the state $128 million a year.

So... let's ban abortions, where they are not being done... let's take state, county and local governments out of the road repair business, roads that were built with tax dollars... and give that away.  Let's give more breaks to businesses that are already paying little taxes..... in the high hopes that they may even pay less in the future.

Wellllll.... some good folks in Wisconsin are not taking this lightly.  Teachers, Unionists, public workers, firemen, prison guards... have been protesting since this shit started... they have now erected a tent city by the capital to keep the protests going.  It's called "Walkerville"

 Well,,,, there is another provision in the budget that would give tax breaks to , get this, Phillip Morris, see, cause they really really create jobs in Wisconsin.  More info at MADISON.COM

"Dear Editor: The Joint Finance Committee voted Tuesday, 13-3, to change taxation on smokeless tobacco products from one based on price - where the tax automatically follows inflation - to one based on weight. This move would make some smokeless tobacco much less expensive and give a competitive edge to the tobacco giant Philip Morris USA.
That vote coupled with the committee's decision to double cuts to the state's effective and popular Tobacco Prevention and Control Program is devastating to the health of Wisconsin and sets the state up for a future with more needless addiction and higher health care costs."

There is just too much shit... wading through it all becomes a full time job.  These folks in Wisconsin are no longer legislators, they are thieves, liars, cheats and crooks.  Another proviso in the "Budget" would limit the amount of personal income a legislator needs reveal.... Holy Conflict of Interest Batman!!"  And... upset with the recall effort, six state Senators are facing recall, the state GOP is toying with the idea of running fake candidates.

But... you see, it is all about creating jobs, balancing our budget..... and paying back your corporate sponsors.

update from JS Online:

"The head of the state Republican Party today acknowledged that it is encouraging fake Democrats to run in recall elections this summer.

Stephan Thompson, executive director of the state party, issued a statement justifying the practice because Republican senators have been too busy in Madison to prepare for the recall elections.

"The Republican Party of Wisconsin has advocated that protest candidates run in Democratic primaries to ensure that Republican legislators have ample time to communicate with voters throughout their districts after the state budget is approved," Thompson said in his statement.

The Journal Sentinel disclosed that the party is hoping to run "protest candidates" as Democrats in the recall elections for Republican Sens. Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac and Luther Olsen of Ripon. Hopper has said he had no knowledge of the matter.

If a primary is held for either party, that would push back the general election by a month, thereby giving the incumbent lawmakers more time to campaign."

and to continue to pass bullshit bills.

Don't leave the cretins in the Tennessee legislature out of your rollcall of shame... Jeez, they work hard to bring dishonor upon the state every legislative session!

We're making Sharia Law illegal (like that's sweeping the court system in the Volunteer State), requiring photo IDs of students (who usually have drivers licenses from their home towns, not the university addresses where they hope to vote), have just passed a law making it illegal to say "gay" in Tennessee schools ("Don't Say Gay, Y'all!"), and now want to defund Planned Parenthood because nothing says we love women more than cutting off their cancer screenings, pre-natal care, and breast exams.

The entire nation is infested with these teabagger morons, and we sit back and ignore them at our own peril...
