Forum Post: I hate recalls

Posted 2 years ago on June 2, 2012, 8:52 p.m. EST by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

and I hate having to vote too. Both parties are a joke. Still, I'm fed up. Scott Walker say's he can't remember whether he signed a recall petition to get rid Feingold/Kohl in 1997. He was doing OK in the debate until then but it's obvious this guy can lie with best of them. Walker just couldn't resist using the old Ronny Reagan 'I don't remember bit'. If we're going to do this recall business then let's do it., Recall every single R in the whole damn country.

Recall should be a constitutional right.

Thank you education can as easy as the sharing of resources.

Expand your horizons people. The preceding Statement was directed at those who are not yet looking for knowledge/truth.

If you mean all of the supporters for OWS Occupy and 99% ?

You - Bet!!!!

I also like crew socks. Tube socks even better. But not sock puppets. Except of course Lamb Chop.

Yep - another issue earmarking. Let us get conflict of interest out of politics. {:-])

As reported in Crew.

cool ... missed that one... ok DK, tell me we can't use info like this to start Occupy endorsements &/or Occupy black lists ...?

I can not tell you that. Pointing out what happens inside of and outside of government - showing how things get done or undone is the act of creating awareness.

Here is another interesting tool :

Bookmarked.

There is so much information available.

Communications are so easy to achieve on a world wide basis.

There has never been a better time to educate and communicate.

Why do people outside of Wisconsin think this recall is a big deal? Just because WI has a tradition and history with unions it doesn't mean a precident will be set here because of the recall. What WI really needs is to legalize pot because these people drink way too much. I used to like going to bars until I moved here.

Recall anybody that is in the pockets of the Koch brothers and Karl Rove because they can't be trusted to represent the health and safety of the populace. There is big money in getting preferential tax treatment and repeal of public safety regulations. We got to show them our government is not for sale.

Recall anyone who stood in the way of amending the shrub tax cuts to exclude the wealthy and keep breaks for the needy.

Recall anyone who stood in the way of amending Citizens united and the removal of corporate personhood.

Recall anyone who stood in the way of OSTA - single subject legislation.

Recall anyone who stood in the way of prosecuting WallStreet criminals.

Recall anyone who stands in the way of a strong EPA.

Recall anyone who supports the keystone tar sands pipeline.

Recall anyone who stands in the way of fossil fuel speculation regulation.

This is how we begin to reclaim our government and get it back to working for the people the economy and the world.

Even better yet, don't vote for them in the first place!
