Scott Walker gets drowned out at opening of Wisconsin State Fair. Love it!
When Florida Governor Rick Scott refused to take money from the Obama administration for high speed rail, he said that it would ‘create Palinsque like death panels’. He’s the same governor who said ‘that if Florida accepted the money, and built the rail line, there would be a catch to it.’ In essence, the state of Florida would end up paying for it, which was not true.
Walker of Wisconsin, came up with some lame excuse not to take the money, to improve the rail system between Milwaukee and Madison, so as to cut down on the length of time.
So the money they refused to take, along with Ohio, some of that money was awarded to Massachusetts, Maine and a couple of other states, that want to improve their rail lines.
I’m hopeful that the voters in the Republican states, either recall, or vote them out in 2012, and never to be heard from again.
Be warned. Andrew Breitbart throws a lot of bull shit, when he appeared on MSNBC. He calls himself the Upton Sinclair of journalism, and Dylan Ratigan sucks it right up.

Did you know that Jesus was a fiscal conservative? That’s a new one to ponder, as the Religious Right seems to think so.
There’s a plan in the works to merge the Religious Right with the Tea Party. This ought to be interesting. Two different sets of whack jobs merging.
Its an interesting read, and you may end up shaking your head when your done.

This smells a lot like what happened in the 2000 Florida debacle. The Waukesha County clerk announced the results in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election was mistaken, and she came up the new vote tally for that county. The DOJ should be looking into her shenanigans, as she has been in deep shit before, and to me she is not one to be trusted.

Nice job by the firefighters in Madison, Wisconsin! Hopefully, the Republicans are finding that the union and other working people are sending them a message, that is: “Enough is enough”!

It is a total shame what the Wisconsin Legislators did last night. One person said it has turned into a “Banana Republic”. I can sympathize with that.
There will be recalls and I hope everyone of those Republicans gets tossed out on their asses.

The sham that was pulled off by the Republicans in Madison, Wisconsin was uncalled for and unethical. Their sole agenda is to rid of the public and private unions, and if the Democrats, Liberals and Progressives don’t stand up and put up the good fight, all will be lost, and we’ll be back to the sweat shop days of the early 1900s, in which time the workers finally rose up, and stood up to the mill owners in Lawrence, Massachusetts that happened in 1912.

Scott Walker want’s to do away with the state run insurance, that costs the state of Wisconsin nothing. Its been run since the late 1800s, and it provides low cost premiums to any and all Wisconsin residents.
What this guy will do to wreak more havoc on its citizens. Its time for him to do the job helping them the best way he can, instead putting the screws to them.

It looks like Scott Walker opened up a kettle of fish with some of the statements he said to the ‘prank David Koch caller’ from the Buffalo Beast. Read and watch the video from last night’s Ed Show, courtesy of Crooks and Liars.
A liberal blogger posing as David Koch, pulls off a beautiful prank phone call with Scott Walker. There are two You Tube videos that run 10 minutes each. A must listen.
