Randy Family values.......

Wisconsin State Senator Randy Hopper District 18, age 45, shacking up with 25 year old lobbyist.

Wowzers!!  read about it from the Chief.

Issues of legal residence, per diem fraud, and plain old stupid have arisen.  These are not flaccid arguments.  He may be up for recall, and no one is pussy footing on that, but in the mean time he is still giving everyone the shaft.  Word is that some of his family members, no longer under wraps, have also signed the recall petiions.

It should be noted.... he only won by 164 votes in the last erection.... not a huge issue.... only inches.

Scott & Eric

What has been most absent in the last few days..... is Scott Walker.  Not very visible.... almost as if he was thinking of something to say.  Maybe I can help him with a few quotes.

Those in possession of absolute power can not only prophesy and make their prophecies come true, but they can also lie and make their lies come true.
Eric Hoffer

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
Eric Hoffer

An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head.
Eric Hoffer


"Stuff FROM MI"


... But the focus is shifting... On April 5th we vote for a new Supreme Court Justice....

And what has happened in Madison makes this a big vote with the oft mentioned illegal, unethical and scurrilous, carpetbagger  conduct of some State Republican  legislators and Scott Walker.  One candidate, running against a conservative incumbent "deserves attention " 
Not that a name like JoAnne Kloppenburg is easy to forget........


Her opponent self describes.....

"I am the only judicial conservative in the race.  The April election will determine whether the court continues a common sense application of the rule of law or whether it will turn back to the judicial activism that Wisconsin voters have repeatedly rejected." David Prosser.

"Here's another opinion of "   David Prosser from a Wisconsin Blooger

And Slate.... weighs in :

Three Electoral Tests in Wisconsin

David Dayen makes a point about Wisconsin that lots of folks are missing.
"The matchup between David Prosser (R) and JoAnn Kloppenberg (D) for the state Supreme Court on April 5 just got very interesting. It’s a statewide vote, and the balance of power on the state Supreme Court is at stake. Right now there are 4 Republicans and 3 Democrats on the court, but one of those Republicans is Prosser. Expect lots of organizing and millions of dollars poured into this election, which is much like a political election, with debates and everything. If Democrats win, the legality of what took place tonight may be put in greater question.
I saw homemade "Vote Kloppenberg April 5" signs when I was in Madison last month, carried by people protesting in the Capitol. Her campaign website is fairly staid, with not many news updates in the last few weeks, and a message that will limit what liberals can do for her.
Because we are taking public financing, we cannot accept financial contributions from any source.
But that's an election third-party groups are going to want to look at. Another election to look at: The May 3 ballots for three vacant Assembly seats, emptied out by Gov. Scott Walker as he built his administration. A third election to look at, of course, will be the recall of senators that can happen in early Summer if petitioners, on the Democratic or the Republican side, succeed. Greg Sargent reported
yesterday that Democratic petitioners are 15 percent of the way to the signature requirements on the eight recalls they're attempting; there are rallies across Wisconsin today where, presumably, more people can sign up."

beep beepbeep. beep beep beep

Last night the Wisconsin State Senate rushed a measure through that effectively ends collective bargaining in the state.  After a month of declaring that the "Budget Reform Bill" was about balancing the budget and not endlin Unions.... they removed the 'collective bargaining portion from the spending bill, a move that eliminated the quorum and thus eliminating the approval of at least one of the elusive fourteen Democratic State Senators.  It was over in less than 30 minutes, no discussions.  It apparantely also violated rules established under the Open Meeting Law.
At Least the truth was finally out in the open.... this IS about Union Busting!  The State Republicans slammed it through and then fled the Capital. The Governor was no where to be found... The vote was, amongst the Republicans, 18-1.  The Democrats are still in hiding. There was one Republican with a conscience.  Today at 11 it goes to the State Assembly, which has shown some dessent amongst the Republican majority.
It was late afternoon when the news hit.  The Capital was immediately deluged with rejuvenated crowds of protesters.  In my little chunk of beautiful Wisconsington the rallies are at the Monument Square, the busiest intersection downtown.  There are about forty of them there now as I type this at the coffee house... soon, ... at least forty one will be there.  There will be more there tonight.
It's peaceful.  Cars driving by honk in support.  Now, there is a code to the honking.... a series of short and long beeps, not unlike a Morse code.... it means.... "This is what Democracy looks like".  I think it started in Madison.... but you can hear it here.  And the small crowd chants along.  And the city bus drivers honk it..... and so did a garbage truck driving by.... and a fire truck.

It's not over. MORE NEWS HERE

 Wow! Sometimes  I  just have to stand back and admire Sahara Palin.... and her seemingly endless array of articulate thoughts!  I AM IN AWE OF THE WOMAN!!!  "They are not doing their job!"  Gees, lemmee see, I think she quit her job, the one she was elected to do,  so she could make a lotta money being a professional shill .... dip into the oil pipeline of Reality TV.  Gees, SHE IS ASTOUNDING in her display of political acumen and common sense.  From her RESIGNATION speech....

"I wish you'd hear MORE from the media of your state's progress and how we tackle Outside interests"

Now, then she was talking about Alaska.... where they don't need 'outside influence", but obviously Wisconsin does.... and she is IT ????   What gets me is how she comes up with this shit!  I mean, it's not even entertaining.  C'mon.... I have more fun listening to my toilet flush, which just goes to show what a fun guy I am!  OH Boy!
A Sahara Palin Panel of peers

Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
Cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more
Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep cheep
Pick a little, talk a little, cheep!

I will trade one Scott Walker for a box of Rocks... the rocks have more intelligence

So.... a Corporate CEO, a Teabagger and a Union Guy are sitting around a table with a dozen doughnuts in the middle.   The CEO grabs eleven of the doughnuts and then says to the Teabagger......

"Hey... that guy is trying to steal your doughnut!"

Adapted from I, Splotchy  but of course he adds his own wry humor to twist the ending.
But the deal is, Scott Walker still refuses to negotiate, mediate or discuss.  the guy is getting to be a real piece of shit.... and more and more moderate Folks are starting to see through him. His poll numbers are slipping..... recall petitions are filling the air like tree pollen........  nerves are on edge, Fox News is lurking behind every bratwurst, the Republicans are waiting for the folks to get tired and go home.  I don't think it will happen.  Four Weeks of protest at the Capital with no abatement in sight.  Like someone pointed out...."Determined people in Wisconsin.... they fish through Ice."

And the Fool Pushes on

Sunday Morning coming down.....


Well she drug me down
Tossed me 'round
Slammed my name all over town
My good gal ain't no good to me
She makes true love more like misery

 Now I'm walkin' hunched
I get drunk a bunch
So would you sucker up and take a punch
My good gal ain't no good to me
And I think I've acted reasonably

Ah, but I miss her
And all that I wish from her

Is the time of day
Don't go out of your way
Just a-leave me with a stack of them bills to pay
My good gal ain't no good to me
And she don't have the courtesy

To shut the door
When she's been playin a whore
I don't wanna see his rags out on the floor
My good gal ain't no good to me
And I only wish that she could see

That I miss her

Ah, but I miss her
All I have is a picture... of her

It was taken years ago
I was a kid, you know
Just a-leanin' up against that El Dorado
My good gal ain't no good to me
And the final word belongs to me

Because I drove her out of town
And I shot her down
And I left her there in the cold, cold ground
My good gal ain't no good to me
Not even in her memory
