When WI Gov. Walker Cracks the Whip Everyone Jumps! Or not.

Click for news updates straight from Mad-City

According to a statement posted on nbc15.com this Saturday online by Democratic State Senator Jon Erpenbach the workers as willing to concede everything BUT are NOT willing to give up their COLLECTIVE BARGAINING Rights.

Now the “ball” is in Rep. Gov. Scott Walker’s court. Previously he has absolutely and publicly REFUSED to negotiate at all with anyone. Erpenbach won’t call Walker a “dictator” but I sure will. What kind of democracy is this when one man cracks the whip and everyone else is supposed to jump his way? Well 40,000 protestors in Wisconsin aren’t jumping. They closed down the Milwaukee school district on Friday. Oh yes, children are getting an education–a lesson in politics and government and news coverage and civil disobedience.  Despite all the “child care” problems this causes the fact remains that this is EDUCATION in American state government that can’t be gotten from any corporate created TEXTBOOK.

Oh if you’re so inclined you too can email Gov. Scott Walker at  govgeneral@wisconsin.gov   According to Scott Walker, 19,000 emails supporting his Bill are more important than 40,000 people protesting in Madison.  This is an example of Walker’s deliberate inability to recognize which number is larger than another. (See “A Concerned Madison Parent Vents” to learn a tad more about Scott Walker.) 

The best Scott Walker has been able to do is send out state troopers and demand that the Democratic State Senators “come home” to work HIS way. For Gov. Scott Walker “HIS” way has been the “ONLY” way so far.

And my rant continues:

Why do Republicans apparently have no regard for the working classes?  Hey, for that matter neither do many Democrats in Washington either it seems. Actually it appears most polticians abhor the working class people. Does anyone care about people freezing to death–literally–by having fuel assistance cut off? apparently NOT as this is “shared suffering” according to Washington D.C. Oh yeah? Let’s turn off the heat in EVERY government building in our nation’s capitals and see how much money that saves everyone. Don’t like that notion? Consider this–cease waging war everywhere. Close down the Green Zone in Iraq where THE LARGEST Embassy in the entire world has been built by the USA. How much will that save  the budget? Cease all covert operations and let’s see how much that balances the budget. Quit sending billions of dollars in military funds to everywhere in the world in order to assist in killing people. No more tanks. No more guns. No more drones. No more tear gas. No more exporting or importing any of these items. Alternative—green our economy, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, create a public education system that provides quality learning environments for EVERYONE–and I do mean EVERYONE. Clean up all our toxic waste dumps and waterways. Oh I’m sure there’s work for everyone to deal with America’s needs. It just requires a redirecting of focus, will power and funding.

Gee–what would Headstart do with all that money spent just on tanks?  

Oh yesterday I received an invitation from Nancy Pelosi in my email box–an invitation to CONTRIBUTE $5 for a chance  to “win” an evening dinner with our President and revel in his vision for a grassroots revitalization of America.  Why would I give any politician any money at this point in time? Would you?
