Journal mcgrew's Journal: .Tea Party hypocricy exposed 9

The furor and fury over Scott Walker's busting the public employees union isn't over; voters have been submitting recall petition for the legislators that voted in favor. Walker claimed that public employees (we're talking clerks and janitors here, not high level bureaucrats) made too much money and were the reason his state was bankrupt. So why did he hire a kid in his twenties with no college degree, little management experience, and two DUIs on his criminal record to oversee environmental and regulatory matters and be boss to dozens of employees at a salary of eighty grand plus per year? Simple -- he's a lobbyist's son.

There's more at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. If you can stomach the hypocricy.

If you're a tea partier and you work for someone else, you are woefully and pathetically following those who want to ruin YOUR way of life. The tea party was started by the Koch brothers, some of the richest people in the world, who want everyone else to be poor. Stop falling for these evil men's lies.

Here's more on the depths of slime these people will stoop to in their zeal to destroy America. And make no mistake about it -- these people are NOT patriots. They only love themselves and their own money. You're just a tool, sucker.

  • In Wisconsin, I'm not sure you can even get your unrestricted driver's license until you've had at least two DUIs...

    However the rest reeks to high hell of cronyism. Unfortunately, that isn't anything new to them, either.
  • I know we've got some exceptionally crooked politicians here, but they at least make *some* effort to cover up their favoritism. This is crooked, right on its face. It would be impressive if it wasn't so frustrating.

      I guess the difference between there and here is Illinois politicians seem to be proud of how damned corrupt they are.

        So, what to do, then? I'd say burn it all down and start over, but then they'd outlaw matches.

          Try not to think about it. It will only give you an ulcer.. Spend the afternoon at Wrigley with some friends.

            Wrigley's a three hour drive... and that's after I reach the city limits! Better that I just walk down to the neighborhood bar. The beer's a hell of a lot cheaper, too.

The way to make a small fortune in the commodities market is to start with a large fortune.
