When businessman Governor Julius Heil was in office, it is my understanding that he was rarely in the Capitol so the Cap Times began picturing a flag every day. It was at half-mast when the governor was out of Madison and full mast when he was in town. Apparently people got a kick out of it.
Well, the state flag is at full mast so Walker must be home from another fundraising trip. Better start collecting gov; you are going to need all the right-wing-out-of-state money you can stuff in your pockets.
Thanks but no thanks, governor. You claim your bill will help the disabled, elderly and minorities vote?Well, thanks but no thanks.
Here is a test. Yesterday, a public figure said: "If you find people who are not corrupt it is largely because they have not had the opportunity." Was he talking about this country or Afghanistan or both?
Governor Walker promised 250,000 permanent family supporting jobs if elected. As that promise, like fool's gold, slips from his grasp, the MJS and the Walkerites are stating as a political "fact" that the so-called death of the mining bill was the centerpiece of his jobs, jobs, jobs promise. Really? A full .28 percent of 250,000 equals 700 mining jobs! Hardly enough to be the centerpiece of any program, not to mention a promkise to create 250,000 jobs! Who is kidding whom?
Limbaugh. Good lord, how could anyone defend Limbaugh? Let me narrow that a bit. How could anyone with a mother, wife, daughter, niece, grand daughter or sister let Rush get away with his outrageous war on women? Mitt? Not ready for prime time, Romney said he would have used other words. Good night, Mitt. I hope your dog nips you if he gets off your car roof.
Do not doze. The mining bill sponsors are playing possum.

I guess I'll give a crap about what Rommney thinks about Rush when someone asks your President what he thinks about his pal Bill Mahr. He has no problem accepting a cool million for a super pac from him. He has called conservative woman way worse things than slut. Maybe Axel Rod will give back the money when he is on Mahr's show this week. I won't hold my breath.

Only a liberal from Madison wouldn't think that 700 jobs (union ones at that!) is not a big deal! Like "The Kathleen" will do any better! LOL

In response to the two previously posted letters, Bill Maher (correct spelling) has actually said Limbaugh has the right to spout off, which the more he does, probably the better for Obama's reelection chances in the fall. Secondly, as Ed Garvey points out, the 700 mining jobs are a tiny percentage of the quarter million the Guv promised to create during his term.

A point of correction for Tom in Racine. The 700 jobs were not guaranteed to be union jobs. At the final mining hearing in Madison mine officials under questioning about whether the jobs would be union or not stated they operate four (4) mines all of which are NOT unionized. They stated workers at all four mines voted not to unionize. So what do you think will happen in this mine that would be any different from the other four? No officials spoke in favor of unionization. I would bet management won't be promoting the union prior to the vote.
No Madison liberals involved here, just corporations ruling people. Something that doesn't happen when workers have strength through union representation.
