If putting a corporate boot on the necks of working families to spite his political opponents isn’t enough to convince Walker’s supporters they’re voting for someone who doesn’t care about their own well-being, Walker is also an outspoken criminal who lies under oath. When asked, while testifying under Congressional oath, if he had any ulterior political motives behind his Budget Repair Bill, Walker, of course, said no. Walker argued his bill was written to respond to unions’ proposals submitted in December. But his staff started work on the bill just 20 days after his election, and told a billionaire campaign donor he would “use divide-and-conquer” strategies to pit private and public-sector Wisconsin workers against each other to make Wisconsin “a completely red state.” Lying under oath is perjury, which is a criminal act. And criminals belong in jail, not the Governor’s mansion.

In 2010, the year Scott Walker got elected and the Tea Party took over Congress, the top 1 percent took in 93% of all income growth. Taking everything Walker and his ilk say at face value, the only reason our economy is still struggling is because those in the obscenely wealthy top 1% still don’t have enough money to create jobs. This underlying belief explains contemporary Republican governance. If the rich only had more money, things would improve. Now, 1 percenters and corporate executives from out of state are pouring in money by the truckloads to help Scott Walker beat the recall attempt, hoping such governance will continue. Because workers’ wages be damned, their profits are all that matter.

Wisconsin has become the epicenter of politics right now, and is rightfully seen as a proving ground for all future Republican politicians. If an unlikable, pasty white guy with a personality akin to a piece of wood and a forgettable name like Scott Walker can turn a Northern blue state red by taking a dump all over the bottom 90 percent to reward the top 1 percent, and survive 100,000 people occupying the state capitol and a recall election brought about by 1,000,000 signatures to boot, this Republican strategy can be replicated anywhere. And it will, if Walker wins on June 5th.

I’ll have to assume Wisconsinites who like Scott Walker like him for the same reason Carol likes Mr. Henderson. Even though he calls her a cow, makes crude sexual advances and throws coffee in her face without provocation, Carol still goes to bed at night, dreaming lovingly of Mr. Henderson. Wisconsin Republicans simply must get off on the abuse Walker happily bestows upon them and their children.

Okay, Aye. The CHeese Heads drink a lot of beer, watch sports, run their boats, and go fishing, Aye. They got a lot of things going on in their lives. We all are sort of consumed with self interest. We have to change the culture.

Maybe we need a generation that doesn't watch TV or TV sports or ....something.

June 5th may very well turn out to be a watershed event.

You are are anti 99%!. You seek to destroy OWS. You have been duped to vote against your own interests and advocate for the wealthiest among us. Stand with working American families. Not with 1% Koch funded politicians.
