Mittens comes to town
Romney likes our voter suppression law. Nice.
Even better, James Sensenbrenner and Ron Johnson (he is our other senator) have endorsed Mittens and, here is the really good news: Johnson will campaign for Romney in the general election! He should cost the GOP lots of votes.
Paul Ryan, with so much egg on his face he might become known as "old omelet face," stood with Mittens and rambled on rather incoherently introducing Romney, for longer than Romney spoke, about, What, you ask? Oh just hell fire and damnation if we follow Obama into the fiscal abyss.
Ryan's omelet came as he challenged the Joint Chiefs on their testimony on the Obama defense budget. Obama, with support from JCS, said a $614 billion defense budget is enough. Ryan, in essence, accused the JCS of lying because Ryan thinks that is not enough! Yikes! That is a big no-no. JCS cannot permit partisan politics to enter in. Ryan apologized.

I think Johnson and Ryan are vying for a position in the Mitt Romney administration. Johnson's would be Secretary of Mediocrity and Ryan the new Secretary of Mass Destruction. Let's hope the Romney ship sinks and takes the scum down with it.

Are Police and Firefighters contracturally prevented from striking?
In his recent decision on the constitutionality of Act 10, Justice Conley found that the plaintiffs failed to show there was no rational basis for the state to grant broader collective bargaining powers to the public safety unions. Justice Conley said the state's claimed reason, to "prevent disruption of essential government services", met the test.
If Police and Firefighters are prohibited from striking, how could the argument that they were excluded from the law to prevent disruption of essential government services have merit?

I hope the scum goes down the drain too, but sometimes it leaves a ring around the bathtub. I hope that whomever the options are to replace these people, that they are really for the people and not being swayed by big money.
