Have you seen us, you know, the cowardly 14 Senators who fled the state of Wisconsin because they weren’t going to get their own way? These 14 claim to be representing the taxpayers and protecting us from Governor Walker. What they are really protecting is their own interests and the unions (the minority of the state). If they support this bill they lose union support, and therefore the dirty money the unions give to them and any chance of ever being reelected. They all deserve to be recalled for bailing on this state, but recall laws require 12 months to have passed before this can happen. So in the mean time, look out for them like our Tea Party friends in Rockford and Chicago have been (Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!). Haul them back here to do the job they were elected and also are being paid to do.

I’d also like to personally thank the fleebagger Lena Taylor for praying for my soul for she feels I am misguided, HA. I don’t need her prayers, God and I know the difference between right and wrong, and Lena my dear you are WRONG WRONG WRONG and when the time comes you and the rest will all be recalled.

I am posting their pictures just in case you need a reminder of what the fleebaggers look like. Round em up and bring em home.

Have you seen us?

    So i decided to do a little research on this thing called Google,
    In the 110th congress of the united states, when the democrats were in control with a majority but not a super majority do you know who set the record for Filibuster’s the republicans.
    I have no problem with that, these rules are in place so that the majority controled party in congress (be it deomcrat rfepublican or retard) cannot act as opressors and pass without discussion, or negotiation any bill they want.
    In US congress however there is a way to stop a filibuster using a super majority vote. The deomcrats are simply holding out until someone on the other side is willing to negotiate. Also perhaps you should read the following an excerpt from the bill
    “Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state-owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b).”
    Before blindly supporting either side, facts should be checked. If we are so desperate for money, why then would we put in the wording to allow selling state assets without taking competitive bids. Wheather that means by providing at the lowest cost, or selling for highest dollars is a matter for debate and interpretation, however if we are in dire need of money not trying to get the welfare maximizing value would be foolish and WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

    • Are you drinking the kool-aid? Good God. Is it so much to expect elected officials to show up and do their jobs and earn their salary? How about coming and debating like the WI assembly members did for 63 hours straight. I will give ALL of them credit for not running off like cowards, which is apparently acceptable behavior to you. They are elected officials behaving like my 3 year old.

      • james newby says:

        you must be the one drinking the cool-aid. they aren’t coming back because the gov. wants to be a communist and shove this down our throats and refuses to negotiate. the last time i checked this was still a free country.

    • By the way a filibuster is not the same thing as just taking off. So Google that.

    The 63 hour debate, included ZERO debating. It was a flilibuster. Reading amendments from documents written 150 years ago, and running away both produce the same outcome. Elected officials serving their constituents. Not everyone supports the bill, a little compromise on it, especially the parts that don’t balance the budget would be nice. Saying NO NO NO, to discussion like scott walker has done, thats how a three year old behaves.
    Holding out until someone is willing to talk thats patriotic. THe bill was actually open for debate in the assembly for an entire minute, wow thats cleary some debate.

  3. LAF says:

    Went through Rockford yesterday, and again on our way back home to WI today, kept a lookout for the cowards, but didn’t see a one of them. Maybe they’re getting manis & pedis at the hotel spa.

  4. Filibuster says:

    As a matter of fact i served in the military, and even the greatest generals of all time understand that at times you must fall back and prepare for the battle ahead.
    Doing whatever is neccessary to overcome the adversity ahead of you. For the 14 democrats there is only one way to fight this fight, hold out until the other side decides that they are willing to come to the table. Saying you are not willing to change one line in a 150+ page budget is not patriotic. I fought for this country so that people could negotiate, and i expect my elected politicians to just that.
    The democrats are not running away from a problem they are confronting it head on. By saying we will return as soon as there is discussion willing to be made. If it were the other way around I would expect the republicans to do the same for there constituency, stop the majority party from acting like a dictatorship.
    Our founding fathers also ran when they had to, Guerilla Warfare began in the revolution, we would not be here today if in every revolutionary battle we stood up like idiots in a line and got gunned down by the enemies superior firepower.
    If you want to use analogies becareful who you are attacking.

  5. Filibuster says:

    I didnt know a strong rebuttal was a threat, violence outside of military action i never commendable. I will take your ending of the discussion with me as my argument being a solid win.

  6. Filibuster says:

    I take you insult of my military service more personal than anything you could imagine so my harsh response is an indication of my pride to our country, and what i put my life on the line to defend. Politicians bullying others into voting without discussion is not what i spent 14 months in iraq for.

    • I commend you for your service to our country. I however will not waste time arguing with someone who refuses to see reason. I have looked at this from all angles and I am expressing my right to say how I feel. If you don’t like it don’t read it. You have no idea what my background is or what I am sacrificing to use my voice.

  7. Filibuster says:

    I am saying 1 thing, there should be discussion and compromise. How is that not using reason.
    98% of the bill should be passed as is, and in places i would be harsher, so explain to me how leaving no room whatsoever for negotiation is reason.
    To me reason would be passing 98% of the bill as is and coming to a COMPROMISE that accomplishes what is needed balancing the budget and leaves everything else on the table for discussion in a civil REASONABLE fashion.

    • But what you are suggesting to compromise on is not something that should be compromised. So they make concessions this year, then next year during their collective bargaining session (which typically take months and months) they decide they don’t want to make the concessions and we end up paying for it as a state. So I don’t really see how that works out to end up saving the state money which is the point of this budget repair bill.

      And I’m sorry, but I cannot EVER agree that walking off the job, (or in the case of the 14 fleeing the state) is the patriotic thing to do. They need to come home and face the issue head on. Why is it ok for them to protect the interests of the few while the rest of us are not allowed a voice?

      You and I are not going to agree on this issue so I am calling a draw on it. You can consider it a victory for you if you want, but we are both entitled to feel how we feel on it. As I said, you have no idea the personal sacrifice I am making to speak up for what I believe in. It comes at a huge cost to me, so whether you consider yourself a winner or not is of no consequence to me.
