Bidder 70 Single-handedly Foiled Gas & Oil Exploitation in Utah–Thank you, Tim DeChristopher.

In a very real sense Bidder 70,  Tim DeChristopher, has been found guilty of a lack of premeditation in regard to his effort to save public lands in Utah from gas and oil company exploitation via illegal land sales.  Yes, illegal even according to Interior Secretary Salazar.  Having watched way too much crime drama on the idiot box, I find it strange that a judge would not allow DeChristophers’s MOTIVE for his actions be part of his defense. What was Tim DeChristopher’s motive? To save public lands from illegal land sales to gas and oil companies.  Huh, and that’s a ‘bad’ thing? It’s a motive the judge clearly didn’t want spread about in the media. Such a motive might give people ideas, raise some serious questions, and might incite a huge public uproar? If you haven’t heard of Bidder 70, ask yourself why not? Seriously–ask why information about Tim DeChristopher’s spontaneous action in 2008 has not reached your over stimulated eyes and ears.  Believe me, Obama and friends are very well aware of DeChristopher and his rescue of public land from the shady fun and games of the Bush playbook. Why isn’t all of America debating the issues that Bidder 70’s Trial raise? Why aren’t we all talking about a young man who has NO regrets for doing what he did and is willing to pay the legal price because he knows he did what needed to be done? Why aren’t we all questioning how our public lands are under threat by companies which are responsible for the destruction of our environment–the very environment that supports our ability to LIVE? Guess what America, it’s illegal to engage in ethical, moral, just action to save the Earth.  Would you do what Tim DeChristopher did when he entered that auction and began bidding? Interesting to also note that the judge would NOT allow the fact that DeChristopher actually raised the money to buy the lands he bid on to be part of his legal defence. Yes, Bidder 70 actually was going to play the rules of the game and PAY for the lands he won through bidding at an auction. But the jury was not allowed to know this information.  What’s that tell you?

There’s also coverage of DeChristopher on www.democracynow.org  -Wed. March 9 broadcast. Democracy Now! has followed Bidder 70 ever since DeChristopher’s action became “news.”

AND

On the ongoing Peaceful Uprising in Mad-City–there’s a “rumor” that Dennis Kucinich will speak at the rally on Saturday. I suspect this rumor is true. 

Btw, it’s also tractor rally time in Madison this Saturday as the Farmers protest the “Repair” bill’s cutting consequences for their Badger Care.

Billionaires = “Budget” Busting Buds with Benefits: Beast Bait Banter Beams: Walker Is Koch Cozy

For those of us following developments in Mad-city the Beast Prank is “old” news.  But if you’re trying to catch up on all the fuss, I’m doing my tiny part to help out.  I think we’ve all got Dictator Scott Walker under our belts by now. Walker’s  Koch connection might need a little of that transparency which is the current media byword that seems to have replaced truth, honesty and integrity.  Every time I hear the word all I can think of are see-through dresses–huh? Yeah, go figure how my brainpan spills regarding word associations. Enough of my egocentric language allusions. 

Let’s start with getting some visuals on the Koch Bros courtesy of Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! headline:

If you’re wandering around capitol square in Mad-city, be sure to pay a visit to the Kochs’ lobbyists’ office there. I’m sure it’s clearly marked for tea party tourists and progressives liberals alike.  Shh! Don’t let on if you support Greenpeace environmental actions.

Still scratching your scalp and thinking hard to  place these fellows? Koch who? Wanting more info? No problem, Greenpeace has the goods on the environmental blues billionaire brothers.

Desiring something less esoteric than Greenpeace satire? Perhaps the Turks are more to your brainpan’s liking. The Young Turks clarify the Koch agenda via the Kochs’ own letters:

Oh my, where are the teabaggers when Kochs need them? These folks sure are NOT buying what the Kochs are selling. Some coverage of a recent rally to protest secret meeting of Kochs with other big wig movers and shakers, including Clarence Thomas and Antoine Scalia. Yes, those supreme court justices are Koch cozies.  OMG–is this what corporate personhood is all about???

Ian Murphy of Buffalo Beast poses as David Koch and gets more ear respect  from Gov. Walker than he gives to the people camped in the capital building. Being a Billionaire has benefits, right? The Beast site is back up and running. You can read and hear yourself  Ian Murphy’s prank foreplay and Walker’s shamelessness:

Another quick kick at the Kochs and their billionaire cronies:

So, now is everyone “good” on the elusive Koch Bros? If you’re not a conservative billionaire Republican or a Supreme Court Justice willing to play corporate personhood ball, they could be a tough click capture for your camera safari on the mean streets of Wichita, Kansas. 

BIG picture parting shot.  Does your child have a dark side? Mine sure do. I don’t wonder why. I think they’re in cahoots with this kid. –>

Believe it or not: WI Gov. Scott Walker: Viagra for Teachers

This is straight from news updates online from ground zero in Madison. I did not make this up. I would never have guessed that one of Scott Walker’s top ten reasons for wanting to bust up the collective bargaining rights of unions was because teachers in Wisconsin attempted to get Viagra via their healthcare plans.  According to the ever increasingly delightfully insane  Rep. Gov. Scott Walker this standoff in Madison is partly about Wisconsin teachers TRYING to get insurance coverage for Viagra. Who knew?!!!

 Does anyone else smell burning tea? Whenever they burn the tea leaves at the production plant in Independence, Missouri everyone’s nose tells them so. Burnt tea for a tea party, anyone? Aww, no thanks, oops, down the rabbit-hole for me!  

 Read it for yourself on nbc15.com’s update coverage coming out of the Gov’s office.  

Straight from Mad-City’s own news station’s update for the Crisis in the Capital:

Direct from Governor Scott Walker’s  office at 7:55 am, Monday February 21:

Example #2: Viagra for Teachers

The Milwaukee Teachers’ Education  Association (MTEA) tried to use a policy established by collective bargaining to obtain health insurance coverage that specifically paid for Viagra. Cost to taxpayers is $786,000 a year.

You too can read the other examples of how collective bargaining negatively impacts Wisconsin at–>

Effort to RECALL WI Gov. Scott Walker Underway on Facebook

                http://www.facebook.com/RecallScottWalker

By golly,  Ms. Molly! Looks like the cheesehead public working class in Wisconsin has already had enough of their Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s efforts to sell them out to private business interests, his outright false reporting of a non-existent budget crisis in Wisconsin and his effort to push through a bill while refusing to hear from the people he is supposed to represent.  Want in-depth details? Visit  http://www.truth-out.org/watch-live-blog-wisconsin-protest-rally-madison-wisconsin67866 for a complete breakdown of Walker and his fellow Republicans’ misrepresentation of dollar facts to suit their own purposes and to utterly destroy the collective bargaining rights of the working class.  Plus, there’s  information about some very shady dealings with the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The photos are not to be missed-especially the “goats” sign and the guy wearing only candy necklaces and signs.

Also–Democracy Now! had extensive coverage of what’s afoot in Madison on this morning’s show–www.democracynow.org. 

 You can also catch up on Egypt, Bahrin, the intense crackdown on university  students protesting in Puerto Rico, and the ironic arrest of Ray McGovern while silently protesting as Her Majesty Clinton publically yapped about freedom of expression on the internet. She didn’t even bat an eye as the old man was physically assaulted by security without cause during her speech in the aisle in front of her. Is that oil or iron in her veins? 

Wooha! Round up time for those Demo-doggies in WI! EEEha! Get yer state squad cars a rollin’!

Oh yes–In Wisconsin it’s round-up rodeo time! The police are searching for Democratic lawmakers in order to haul just ONE in order to have a quorum in the capital.  The 14 Wisconsin state senators are AWOL in order to drag their heels regarding Gov. Scott Walker’s ramrod union busting bill efforts. Apparently the Democrat senators have fled the state to an undisclosed location. Something I’ve been told has been done “before”–so they know what they’re doing here rather than AWOL-ing off the cuff. According to nbc15.com, the state police can be sent to round-up the unco-operative senators if they don’t show up and are just simply “absent” for the quorum. Hence the out-of-state migration.  No word yet on how long the senators intend to vacation out of reach of the Wisconsin State Police. I wonder if this round-up would include using those plastic handcuffs on the Democratic-doggies.

Game Wardens Providing Security In Madison? And another dirty word for my list.

As I await email updates from my progressive liberal cronies who reside in Madison, Wisconsin–and who, btw, have NOTHING good to say about Republican Governor Scott Walker who recently cost the state a HUGE chunk of money by killing a light rail project–more money than the project  itself would have cost (apparently he does not comprehend which numbers are higher than others)–I am trying to find news updates of the protest which has closed down the public schools.  I just read that GAME WARDENS are providing the security for the capital building? (*&^????!! Game Wardens? Are they hoping to bag some teachers’ heads for their office walls or what? Or are they just place warmers until Scott Walker calls out the National Guard to defend his office, car and home from the teachers who are hot on his math challenged Republican tail? 

While trying to get news from a Wisconsin online news source I almost died laughing when I read a comment about the “liberal press” not allowing a Walker supporter post his comment.  (*&^!!! the LIBERAL PRESS????? Oh yeah, Amy Goodman covered the Wisconsin protest issues on Democracy Now! but I don’t see any other LIBERAL PRESS doing much to prevent the Walker supporter from posting their comment online.  I think I have a new DIRTY WORD —> Conservative.  Yes, I am fed up with reading and hearing the word Liberal bandied about like a foul smell.  I think the word Conservative deserves equal foul smell status at the very least.  Let the Game Wardens take pot shots at all the whiners who can’t get their comments posted online. OH, but if the comment wasn’t being posted as the Conservative Republican supporter of Scott Walker claimed, then how in the world did it appear online for me to read? GO Figure that one out! Duh.

Have some fun yourself if so inclined:
