Right vs. Left in the Midwest

It's a workers' paradise. Better get up here Hank.

Shouldn't those events be built into the budgets of the plethora of state agencies that deal with these issues?

Are they? Did anyone check with them? Did they all get their full budget allocations?

Are there any other issues besides alien invasions that might benefit from a contingency fund? Is it possible to foresee every problem that might arise?

The state will be fine if the honest working people get their un-spent tax money back.

Walker's truly a man of the people.

Other proposals will PROBABLY include re-instating capital punishment, mandating a seven-day work-week, and bringing back indentured servitude.


O for 4 but thanks for playing.

As you know, as in other parts of my life, I have a bi-state lifestyle.

It's complicated. I'd rather not go into it without an attorney present.

I thought our state deficit and debt was crippling to our economy.

Why don't we use the money to pay down the debt?

No, it will be more beneficial to the greater good if everybody gets seven bucks back from the state.

$7.00 ? Where you getting that?

Property taxes cut $101 on a median-valued home worth $151,000. Income tax cut would amount to $44 to $58 per tax filer. Total: $145 to $159, accd. to Milw Journal-Sentinel.

If you don't want it, pls. sign over to me.

I got that from the last wonderful surplus check we got.

If I could sign them all and put them in a state emergency fund, including yours, I'd do it. It's an irresponsible attempt to buy votes.

How about that sex offender on the stage with Scotty? Fits right in with Richard Russell and his former employer.

Um, so, Walker is full of shit and hoping people are not paying attention to what he is really doing. As usual.

Unfortunately, that's been working pretty well for ol' Scotty so far.
