Here they come!
Bill Berry's post on weirdos in Wisconsin got me thinking. Berry focused on our weird college drop-out Scott Walker, who is worried about an accurate deer count rather than counting the new permanent, family-supporting jobs he has created. (He is behind as of today by 6,372.) "Hi, ho, hi ho to count the deer we go, hi-ho-hi-ho hi-ho, hi ho!"
Under his administration, Wisconsin "will take politics out of the woods, putting the deer back in." What the hell is he talkimg about? Reminds me of Bob Kasten, who once earnestly pledged to "make Wisconsin, Wisconsin again." As a friend chuckled, "What have we been? Cheese? New Jersey?"
Then yesterday, Assemblyman Voss, from my home town of Burlington, made infamous by the "Burlington Liar's Club," announced that Wisconsin should become a so-called "Right to Work" state to help create jobs. Huh? I guess more corporations would settle in our woods because if we are "union-free" we can boast of lower wages and benefits" by paying working people less! Give him the Liar's Club certificate and send him back to work. Where? Where else, his very own Rojo's Popcorn stand in Burlington. (Lots of butter, please.)
Vos probably will urge us to stop playing "On Wisconsin." The preferred song will be Dixie! Break the news to Mike Leckrone slowly.

Finally got a chance to watch Michael Moore's "Capitalism, A Love Story". I usually don't like horror flix, but this one moved right along. Toward the end was footage from one of Roosevelt's final addresses wherein he presented his Second Bill of Rights (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Bill_of_Rights):
Employment, with a living wage.
Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies.
The commentator mentioned that Japan and Europe already have them. The US does not. I wonder why.
Unfortunately for Walker the Talker, counting deer never made the list. Heaven help us if we someone even suggests livable wages. I'm beginning to have greater empathy for Republican'ts.

I hardly know where to begin. Not to defend Little Scotty but having a college degree does not make you smart. As proof I give you our current Dems and their Affirmative Action President. So.., be careful on that. Like my daddy always said, "When you don't have an education you just have to use your brains." As proof of that I give you Truman. He didn't have a college degree either.
As for the Deer Czar this is nothing more than Little Scotty playing the bucket biologist crowd. They will do it with fishing too. In fact, if the enviros had been paying attention they would have noticed it by now but I guess you have to be a group like Trout Unlimited to get that info.
Frankly, a lot of these deer hunters are a bunch of lard butts. Just got some photos from my friend in Idaho. He packed into the back country for his cow elk freezer filler. He and his pals were packing out the quartered animal down steep snow covered mountains. Around here the Beer, excuse me DEER hunters want to sit on their (heated) duffs and shoot a trophy buck and then get it out of a twenty acre field on their four wheeler. Hmmm, another issue to watch, more "access" for four wheeled recreation in the "healthy outdoors".
Face it. Liberals need to do some soul searching. They have mocked, denigrated, and otherwise poked fun of the conservatives yet they keep losing the political game despite all the college degrees. Seems they are book smart but ordinary stupid. Little Scotty and the GOP didn't win because they are smart. They won because the other side was stupid.
By the way. Is there any way to get spell check on this site? My college English is starting to wear off.

Why do Republicants hate labor so much?
Were Wisconsin voters thinking, "that they were not labor"?
Laborers who did not vote, did not vote for Democrats will suffer the consequences.
Once Walker figures out how to steal from Union Pension Funds he will whistle a different tune about putting unions out of business.

Walker doesn't have to make Wisconsin a Right to Work state, it already is one. That means you get to work and the boss is always right, no matter how bad he wants to shaft you.
This is really pathetic and frankly, I don't see any kind of solidarity among working people or even between unions. When there is a strike in Europe the other unions go out if the issue is really a major one. We have none of that and until we do workers are going to be picked off.
The Tea Party picked up on "Don't Tread On Me" but maybe workers should pick up on the line of all hanging together or they will be hung seperately!
