Forum Post: The Big Money Adds Say Walker's Agenda is Working...What is the Truth?

Wisconsin budget is now 140 million in the red. Walker spent more then Gov. Doyle did in the last two year budget. We have had six straight months of job losses (the only state in the country with six straight months of job loss) as the economy has improved. Walker and his policies have failed here in Wisconsin. But this unethical political opportunist has spent the last 2 months out of state lying and raising unlimited funds to defend his divisive policies. As a small business owner Walker has done nothing but hurt Wisconsin. We need to remove him and move forward with a moderate governor who respects all the people of the state not just his corporate campaign donors. Wisconsin teachers, police, garbage collectors and fireman deserve our respect more then a right wing political opportunist who is just trying to turn worker on worker to advance his political goals.

Wisconsin has been bleeding jobs, since Walker took over.

So, no. It isn't working for anyone but the Kochs.

The important thing is he didn't have to raise taxes on the wealthy to become debt ridden ;)

It is going to take years to turn Wisconsin around as soon as Walker is out. Years. He has literally sold the people of Wisconsin.

If ( WHEN ) we get a handle on the fossil fuel industry, We can use some of the reparations money to help.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

They are going to have to find that money somewhere because they have jacked over everyone. I haven't yet heard about anyone going to jail for when they were collecting signatures and then shredding them.

This is exactly what I expect to see in the beginning. When the mask of society is first pulled off of the face of corruption. It will no doubt get worse before it starts to get better. The thing we need to do is remain strong and continue as we have. Talking pointing sharing educating bringing action items to the population to take part in continue to encourage taking and owning the process of Government to return it to its proper legal use of supporting the people.

Yep.

Well, he did screw the unions out of the 68 million they were skimming from the state on healthcare, bastard!

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 2 years ago

Why defend a scum like Walker? What's in it for you?

[-] 1 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

You mean after he gave his corporate buddies 200 million in tax breaks and subsidies?

Despite the trail of Walker's past appointees getting indited for corruption? You are definitely part of the problem.

I don't know who is brainwashing you, but the Unions provide a base for employees to be empowered. Yes, there are problems. Unions aren't perfect, but neither are bankers or politicians. You like weekends? Thank Unions. You like overtime? Thank unions. You like worker safety? Thank unions. Do you really think capitalists just grant workers rights out of the generosity and goodness of their heart? Better look at working conditions in China then.

Quit your union and work in a right-to-slave state then. If you see real problems in your union then push for change. You don't castrate the union with a police state! That's just fascism. Don't be a coward, PeePants.

I guess staying brainwashed and intellectually comatose is always an option. Good luck with that.

Don't forget Adolf Hitler. He would have gotten your vote too.

Unions were one of the first things Hitler outlawed.

its take a while to recover from being ripped off by the public unions.

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 2 years ago

Like that childhood trauma that made you so cynical? But I have faith that you will recover.

[-] -2 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

you are mean. i guess that you are angry about your failure in life that turned into a jealousy of successful people.

[-] 1 points by HitGirl (2263) 2 years ago

Not true. I love successful human beings. You just don't see that many of them anymore. Gandhi was awesome, Roosevelt, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Warren, Martin Luther King Jr, all people worth looking up to and being inspired by.

[-] -1 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

Elizabeth Warren?? what did she do? Roosevelt (which one?). other choices are good. What about Eisenhower, Reagan, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, George Washington, Patton, John Glenn, Milton Friedman, Hewlett and Packard, all of the brave men and women defending our country, Lincoln, Jefferson, Franklin, James Stewart

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 2 years ago

You didn't ask me for a comprehensive list. I was making a point.

exactly the intellectual mother of the occupy movement who is rich and lives in a 4 million house. hypocrisy showing again that liberalism is a mental disorder.

[Removed]

[-] -1 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

as long as you are a liberal you can be as rich as you like, and most of the occupy soldiers (the elite ones not the unwashed ones) won't care. look at the hollywood stars, supporting occupy. Why don't they give up their money and homes if they hate what is called the 1%. Look at warren buffet, kissing Obama's butt. Buffet can give his money to the IRS if he believes that he is not paying enough. but he doesn't. But the liberals use him as an example of how to be rich and still have the masses like you.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

Wow, that has got to be the lamest argument I've ever heard. It is as juvenile as saying stop hating. You ever heard of tough love. That is what grownups do to children when they want the best for them. Would you stop your parenting if your child said stop hating? I hope not.

[-] -2 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

most occupy people are jealous losers. Oh i mean angry jealous losers. They had some good points but their violence and hatred has ruined them.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

You are simple if you are going to disassociate a whole idea and movement because of a few bad actors. If i was to be so simple, I'd say that capitalism is a terrible economic philosophy because of Countrywide, Enron, union carbide, BP, The dot com bubble, housing crisis, MF global, great depression and stock market crash of 1929. But I ain't that simple.

[-] -1 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

well sometimes the only way to fight simple mindedness, is with simple ideas. Most of the people on this blog are occupy soldiers not intellectual thinkers.

[-] -1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

I think they are like me, disillusioned, discombobulated and disappointed with the direction we are headed and use this forum to vent, share ideas, and debate the different perspectives our news agencies feed us.

But if you are talking about the movement as a whole, well, look at our history, this type of shit is inevitable.

As to them not being as intellectual as you prefer, I prefer this type of environment. I don't do well around pretentiousness.

[-] -2 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

nothing is inevitable. You sound like Karl Marx or some kind of communist when you say that.

[-] 2 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

It happens so many times through history, and because i'm a betting man, which I acquired the talent from my strong American up bringing, this betting man would bet that the other foot is dropping once more, tootle loose .

well you know what they say about predictions, they are difficult to make, especially when they are about the future.
