US 41 Corridor Could be the Key to Wisconsin Election

As folks head to the polls today, it could be the evenly split voters in Fox Valley who make the difference.

In an article in the Appleton PostCressent, Lawrence University political scientist Arnold Shober said, “Barrett will do wonderfully in Dane County, just like Walker will carry Waukesha and Washington County, but up here in the Fox Valley, we’re truly one of the few areas that is split 50-50.”

The Fox Valley is made up of many union-represented public employees who feel abandoned by Gov. Walker’s public sector union reforms, and by many business people who have cheered on his efforts.

Over 206,000 absentee ballots have already been cast in the contest, but when the polls close today it may well be those voters from Fond du Lac to Green Bay who swing the election.

Democrats Force Elections in Wisconsin .. and Lose

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker(R) was elected on the idea that he would take care of the taxpayer’s money. In short, he would balance the state’s budget without asking the taxpayers to come up with more cash. He did it.

One of the casualties of frugality was the unions. They would no longer have a dictatorship-like ability to force workers to pay into their coffers and no longer could government workers collectively bargain with the very people that would want their support in future elections – an obvious quid-pro-quo situation.

Union leaders went after the seats of the six Republican senators eligible for recall – an early re-election vote – and failed. As The Washington Post put it:

If these results stand, its an undeniable defeat for labor and for progressive activists.

Democrats and their allies are arguing taking down two incumbents is itself a victory, given that recalling an official is in­cred­ibly difficult and rare. But they invested very heavily in taking back the state senate and fell short.

Despite tens of millions of dollars being spent by special interest groups on the left, Republicans maintained control in the Senate by losing only the two most-vulnerable seats – and three Democrats will have their recall elections in coming weeks which could mean a net gain for Republicans should the Democrats be defeated.

The vulnerable Republicans were Senator Robert Cowles, Senator Alberta Darling, Senator Sheila Harsdorf, Senator Randy Hopper, Senator Dan Kapanke, Senator Luther Olsen. Only Kapanke and Hopper lost their seats while the remaining four Republicans held firmly to their positions in the state senate.

The message of the recall should be clear: Americans oddly want politicians that will take care of their money, not spend it like it’s lottery winnings.

Since the heavily union-financed effort has failed, it is likely that similar efforts in other states will also be met with the reason of fiscal sanity.

Predictably, big-labor funded Democrats are crying foul. While no specific accusations were made nor evidence produced, Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate accused Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus of “once again tampering with the results of a consequential election” and that a “dark cloud hangs over these important results.” That will mean more expenses for Wisconsin taxpayers as left-wing special interest groups demand that the results be dragged into court.

Progressives have been claiming that they would also be recalling Gov. Walker as soon as the law allows. It remains to be seen if their funding partners, big labor, have the stomach to throw millions more of their members’ dues at another possible loss.

 

General Letter to Wisconsin Citizens

Dear Fellow Wisconsin Citizens,

Praise God for those majority elected or minority unelected politicians who have unwavering support for their leader when he or she strives to do what’s best for the entire State of Wisconsin – and not only for a small subset of the population.

It is totally irrelevant that past governors, regardless of party, left a budget deficit for their successors to deal with. What matters now, is that there is an elected majority of officials who are attempting to do what’s absolutely, financially necessary for this state – in spite of the opposition minority; whining, union bought and owned, politicians (and their out of state union ‘masters’.)

  • It’s not better for Wisconsin when a minority of public union employees have more privileges than Wisconsin tax-payers.
  • It’s not better for ALL Wisconsinites that the state has to significantly raise property taxes to support union perks over Wisconsin tax-payers’ needs.
  • It’s not better for Wisconsin to raise the rate of business taxes so communities can continue to build Taj Mahal-like schools.
  • It’s not best for ALL Wisconsinites that a few get better pay and unreasonable ‘perks’ at the cost of other public employee jobs. Where’s the ‘love’ of fellow union ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ in this selfish reasoning?
  • It’s not better for Wisconsin that this state be controlled by a rebellious minority group of  politicians and union thugs who are more concerned about votes, fat wallets and ‘their own’ causes than the well-being of this great state.

It’s never better for ANY part of the Federal or State governmental/judicial system when the few ‘decide’ for the many.  As evidenced in our own states’ liberal judicial system. Wisconsinites have to put up with a lone judge, functioning as a dictator, who is deciding what is ‘best’ (for all) even when she knows the majority of voters disagree with her decision.

If the majority of people in Wisconsin now decide to turn their backs on the very politicians they voted into office in November, by recalling them – shame on them. Those flip-flopping voters falsely elected politicians that they did not agree with. Those flip-flopping voters misled the politicians they voted into office into believing that they really did want an economically righteous change in Wisconsin –when they really did not! If this flip-flop vote happens, it will show that a majority of Wisconsin voters really are more concerned about the union privileges of a few, rather than what’s right for the State.

On the other hand, if the majority of law-abiding Wisconsin tax-payers really do believe that the majority of the politicians that they voted into office must do what’s best for Wisconsin – ALL of Wisconsin – they had better show it at the upcoming April elections. They had better show it when these selfish, self-centered, ‘union owned’ liberal voters get these recalls started or even implemented.

Here’s what fiscally responsible conservatives need to do:

FIRST: let those selfish, self-centered, liberal recall leaders or instigators know that you are not in favor of recalling a politician who was simply trying to do what they were elected to do by a majority. Talk to those anti-Wisconsin invaders in-person; call or email them.

SECOND: fiscally conservative, law-abiding, tax-paying Wisconsinites better show up at the polls and show that they’re really serious about getting this great State of Wisconsin back on financial track.

And as much as I love this state, I do not have to live in it. If a majority of Wisconsinites decide they want to substantially raise property and business taxes, I’ll move to a state where its citizens care more about the good of that state then they do for the good of a few. If a majority of ‘flip-flopping’ Wisconsin voters decide that they want to continue to make this a ‘tax-hell’ state for retired people, business owners and people who are wealthy, I will move. I will move to a state where the majority of the people in that state encourage retired people to reside in that state because it’s ‘tax-friendly’ to those older people who’ve been faithfully paying their fair share of taxes all their lives. I’ll move to a state that encourages businesses to flock to that state because of great tax breaks and/or tax incentives. If Wisconsin becomes a state where the majority of its voters decide that the law-abiding wealthy business owners of Wisconsin need to be excessively taxed (simply) because they’re wealthy, I’ll move. I’ll move to a state that encourages wealthy business owners to come to their state; use America’s great system of free-market capitalism and make as much money as you want; we won’t ‘hammer tax’ you in our state.

There was a time when this great country was once split over the rights of an individual to own people and the constitutional rights of a man to be free. Imagine it; American citizens willing to kill fellow citizens just so they could have the ‘right’ to own a person. This country was so divided over this issue that one family member was willing to kill another family member for each other’s rights. (Very similar to today’s union/non-union ‘rights’ split.) The problem with America’s Civil War was that one side was wrong. Greed ‘drove’ people ‘over the edge.’ Selfish, self-interests ‘pushed’ the hidden ‘dark side’ (a side we all have) to the surface in America’s Civil War. Personal, self-centered desires drove every-day Americans to the point that they were willing to destroy this nation before they would give up their (unconstitutional) ‘rights’ to own fellow human beings. So you tell me which ‘side’ was wrong?

Now I know that not all union people are selfish, self-centered, union owned sheep. Some union people do think and act for themselves.  Now is the time for ALL Wisconsinites to ‘stand up’ for citizens rights—– not union perks. As I go through my daily life I going to remind people that I would be willing to give it all for the America, with all her wonderful freedoms and liberties.  I am also going to remind people that I would have been willing to fight and die to protect the constitutional rights of Black American citizens. Citizens held against their will. Citizens who were even being told how to think and act! But I’m also going to remind people that I would not be willing to fight or give my life for a labor union. I am not willing to destroy this state so that public workers can continue to live a life of pomp. I find it kind of ironic though that labor unions do ‘deny’ free human beings the freedom to think and act for themselves, and ‘hold’ (some) of their people against their will. You would think an intelligent free people would not once again allow themselves to be ‘owned.’

Wisconsin citizens, you need to see that the budget ‘war’ going on today in Wisconsin is not the ‘people’ against the governor. It’s a ‘war’ between a small, selfish minority of lawless tax-payers, and a majority of selfless tax-payers who care about the economic well-being of this state more than their jobs. (I find it sad that wise, intelligent union people and union leaders can’t see that what’s best for all Wisconsinites: good jobs, good family environments, and low taxes, is the very things Governor Walker is proposing.)  What’s going on right now in our state is a ‘war’ between Wisconsin tax-payers who care more about this state then they do about the collective bargaining ‘rights’ of a few.

Fellow Americans, we need to wake up. We need to see how far our fellow citizens were once willing to go to ‘feed’ their selfish, evil, self-satisfying desires. We best not make that mistake again. We must squelch this anti-American, anti-State, anti ‘what’s best for all’ movement before these people become like ‘rabid’ dogs—–a people out of even their own-control.

Wisconsin Judge Puts New Union Law on Hold

Judge Temporarily Blocks Wisconsin’s New Labor Law- FoxNews.com*

Judge Maryann Sumi listens to arguments during a hearing Friday, March 18, 2011 in Dane County Curcuit Court in Madison, Wis. (AP)

Published March 18, 2011 - Milwakee Journal Sentinel

Judge Maryann Sumi, a Dane County Judge in Wisconsin listens to arguments during a hearing Friday, March 18, 2011 in Dane County Curcuit Court in Madison, Wis. (AP)

judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state’s new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, a measure that drew thousands of Union organized thuggish protesters to trash the state Capitol building and sent some Democrats fleeing to Illinois in an illegal attempt to block a vote on it.  Judge Sumi has now scheduled hearings on this ruling for March 29th. In the meantime, the recent law limiting Union bargaining power in the State of Wisconsin will be temporarily put on hold. I find this action to be very hypocritical and to be nothing short of  ludicrous posturing and Liberal denial of true democracy in action. Where was this reportedly far far left Judge, while the Wisconsin Democratic Senators blocked the state legislative process from being implemented while hiding out in Chicago like spanked children running away from their responsibilities? Elections have consequences, and when Democrats lose, ( see Al Gore in the 200 elections) they refuse to accept the election results time and time again.

This is the exact same Union vote-buying sucker-puppet, pay for play Liberal Judge, that refused to order the Madison School District’s Union schoolteachers back to work last month, while ignoring the fact that said Union teacher’s de-facto strike was against Wisconsin law. Here you have hundreds of Union teachers refusing to show up for work for weeks because they do not like what the winning party in the 2010 elections are doing, and this far left *Judge* ( I use that term for her quite loosely) doesn’t call it a strike ?  That is ludicrous!

I also do not agree with Fox News reporting that this will be a “major setback”  for Republicans in Wisconsin. The rule of law will prevail, and to emphasise that point, there should be a recall petition to remove this far left Judge Sumi immediately. It has become very obvious that this Judge has delusions of grandeur concerning the stated authority she holds in her very shameful attempts here in interpreting Wisconsin State laws as she feels fit, instead of as they are written. This Judges misguided ruling will be proven to be a waste of time and money in the end, leaving her exposed as a Union puppet unworthy of sitting on a bench in any courtroom in America, period.

Judge Sumi ruled on this at the request of another Union owned Democratic puppet, District Attorney Ismael Ozane. In another note of irony here,  Wisc. State Senator Erpenbach,  (D) the winner of the CDN Jackass of the Week award** put his hypocritical two-cents in here by stating:  “I would hope the Republicans would take this as an opportunity to sit down with Democrats and negotiate a proposal we could all get behind,”  Oh really? Just how does Democracy work in a state legislature when every single childish Democratic Senator is hiding in a hotel in Chicago ?  It is kind of late to start talking that game, and it is pretty nothing short of ludicrous to mention working together, when you hid out for weeks on end to block Democracy for being implemented in the first place.

Stay tuned, this is far from over, and we will see this self-important Judge and her Democratic co-conspirators made to answer for these kinds of childish, Democracy-ignoring actions. Start the recall petition for this far left Union puppet Judge today, send them a message.

   Update:

The State Journal reports:  Amid uncertainty about a state law that sharply curtails collective bargaining, Madison officials on Friday announced tentative contract extensions with more labor unions and promised a special City Council meeting to approve them next week  The city announced an agreement with its biggest union AFSCME Local 60, on Tuesday, and on Friday announced deals with other AFSCME bargaining units, bus drivers and mechanics, Streets Division and other laborers, stagehands, building and trades and fire supervisors.  The unions ratified the contracts this week.
 
   BINGO ! Play for pay UNION Judge delaying the law so UNIONS can suck more from the taxpayers.
 
Update2 Shes baaaack! Union puppet Judge Sumi puts law on hold again!

Stand With Scott Walker

We at Conservative Daily News have taken up Governor Walker’s cause. Now it’s your turn.

Help send the following message to the Wisconsin Senate and to Governor Scott Walker:

Union dues should be voluntary, and the state should not be in the business of collecting them. Union certification should require a secret ballot. Collective bargaining should not be used to force extravagant pension and health benefits that cripple state budgets.

These common-sense reforms have made the union bosses desperate to disrupt Wisconsin government and overturn an election. They must not be allowed to succeed. In fact, every state should adopt Governor Scott Walker’s common sense reforms.

Democracy Hypocrisy in Madison

I encountered an article over at Townhall.com by Debra Saunders titled, “The CheeseHead Rubicon” that once again shows us just how hypocritical the Liberal Socialists of America ( that hide behind the Democratic in name only party of today) truly are.  In that article* we see another very interesting fact about the State of Wisconsin politics today:

“In 2008, 56 percent of Wisconsin voters supported Barack Obama for president. In 2009, Wisconsin’s Democratic governor and Democratic Legislature passed legislation that raised taxes and fees by about $1.2 billion over three years. State lawmakers approved the bill on the very day it was introduced, with no public hearingRemember that ? ” (emphasis mine)

Fast forward to this past week in the Wisconsin State Assembly, where we saw a totally disgusting display of rudeness by the minority Democrats after the budget bill was passed. The majority of the Democrats were all dressed in red as some kind of intimidation tactic to begin with. Then after the bill was passed, they all started screaming and pointing fingers at Republicans as they filed out of the room. It reminded me of a 3 year old who had been told he had been a  rotten kid all day long and therefore he would not get the ice cream he had asked for. I believe this is unethical conduct for State Legislators, and hope that the disrespectful offenders in this case will all be brought up on  ethics charges.  If that display doesn’t show a lack of proper ethics,I don’t know what does. Put these disrespectful clowns up on stage before the entire Assembly and  play the video for everyone to see. I am very disappointed in the entire State of Wisconsin and  their State Leaders  for allowing this political circus to reach new levels of  ridiculousness in recent days. This has got to be stopped. Make examples of these clowns. Let’s go ahead and put a link of the video of these people in here for all to see. Take a good look at the Wisconsin reps here:

What makes this situation even more disgusting and reprehensible, is the fact exposed in the above quote of how Democrats used their Majority power to pass a tax increase onto the people of Wisconsin of about  $1.2 billion over 3 years back in 2009 with no debate!   They introduced the bill and passed it one the very same day with zero public hearings. A tax increase over a billion dollars was done by the Governor and State Lawmakers with no input from the rest of the Legislators or the people of Wisconsin. The Governor and both houses were under the control of the Democrats at the time. That is hypocrisy to the tenth degree folks. What say the good   folks up there in Wisconsin about that?  Surely the whole state can not be so ignorant as to not call the Liberals on these truths here, can they?

Minority leader Peter Barca proves just how pathetically hypocritical these Democrats are when he stated: ” “The governor and Assembly Republicans are so out of touch that they are willing to resort to these extreme ends to achieve their legislative goals,” Minority Leader Peter Barca said at a news conference.”  Extreme ends Pete? What would you call the episode back in 2009 that we have documented for our readers here? FYI the vote this past week that passed the budget bill was passed at 1 a.m. after 60 hours of solid debate!  Your liberal Democrats and Governor rammed through a billion dollar tax increase after allowing  no debate!

So  here we see a group of extreme hypocrites from the Democratic Party blocking the State Legislature from functioning as the law dictates, while at the same time    rallying  a bunch of  Union cronies with cries of Democracy. Throw in the fact that the majority of the media misfits are strictly on the sides of the Unions here,and we have a hell of a nasty situation.  I  am willing to bet the Wisconsin farm here, that even with all the proof before them, the good people of Wisconsin will take no action against the Democrats, such as recall elections for the Senators illegally hiding to avoid doing their sworn duty. They refuse to open their eyes to the fact that Governor Walker is trying to balance the budget for the sake of all citizens in Wisconsin. We have proven the Democracy Hypocrisy of the Democrats up in Wisconsin right here for all of them to see.  Will they stand behind their duly elected Governor Walker in installing some fiscal sanity for the benefit of everyone, or will they become the next irresponsible State to have to resort to begging for Federal bailouts due to impending bankruptcy?

Wisconsin Protests Go Nationwide: The Radical Agenda

Today we are being told that the Union protests will spread across the nation. I believe this could be the start of what Glenn Beck has exposed as self-professed Communist activist Van Jones’  top down, bottom up, inside out theory of radically transforming America. Remember that these people follow the mantra of , “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”   Mr. Jones was injected into our government as the “Green Jobs Czar” by one Barack Hussein Obama as an appointee with the approval of longtime Chicago confidant Valerie Jarrett, who is now in our very own Whitehouse as a senior advisor  to Barack Obama also. Her prior qualifications to be directly involved in our government today? She is a known Chicago slumlord who was once the Chief of Staff for the King of Chicago corruption, Ex-Mayor Richard Daley. His youngest son, Bill Daley is also Obama’s new Chief of staff in our Whitehouse. Mr Jones can be seen in the photo to the left promoting riots in trying to free a convicted cop killer. This man  certainly gives a  new meaning to the term,”community Organizer.” Mr. Jones is calling for nationwide protests against All state governments starting today, in conjunction with Obama’s heavily State government embedded, UNIONS. This is seizing upon the manufactured crisis in Wisconsin and their mantra of not letting a good crisis go to waste.

Lisa Gras, a very dedicated and informative writer, has put together an excellent article on billionaire economic terrorist George Soros  that should be read  by all Americans who are not familiar with the puppet-master, government overthrowing economic terrorist Mr. George Soros.  http://lisagraas.com/2011/02/05/five-revolutions-backed-by-george-soros/ Soros backed the Liberal Democrats back in the 2008 election, pouring millions into the campaigns of  BOTH  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One way or the other, Mr. Soros was guaranteeing that he would have a place at the Whitehouse dinner table and he succeeded. Without Whitehouse support, this word re-known economic terrorist would certainly find himself rotting in an American prison today. Soros was found guilty of insider trading after a 14 year investigation in France* and was fined 2.3 million dollars. This is a man who is also famous for breaking the Bank of England , and was  caught by the SEC here in America  in a stock trading scandal back in 1979, and agreed that he wouldn’t do it anymore. No criminal charges were filed there. The laws about insider trading differ greatly from one country to another. Unlike American law, French law does not provide for civil enforcement actions in insider trading cases; they may be pursued here only as criminal matters. Mr Soros is also known as a man without a country today, yet he is now spending most of his time here in the United States.

In the above referenced article by Lisa Gras, that well-researched and very informative article shows us how George Soros has been undermining governments across the globe since 1984, leading right to the doorstep of the recent Middle East upheaval. What does this have to do with  the current Wisconsin protests, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and Barack Hussein Obama and now the Communist Party USA ?  Apparently more than most people currently know in this country today. Every one of the countries that George Soros was involved in written in Lisa’s article have one thing in common:  The overthrowing of governments through George Soros financed quasi-covert political operations. This also always involves the corruption of the Media, as Soros has poured millions of dollars into newspapers, Tv stations, media networks, etc. He recently gave huge amountss of s=csahs to leftist groups, such as MoveOn.org and The Huffington Post. Here you can see how they have signed up today to promote the protests across America. http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/index.html?action_id=238 This is a bid to protect the progressive movement’s power base for the 2012 elections, folks, nothing more. These puppets could care less about the American people and their quality of life.  Soros also seems to monitor political situations worldwide , and then has shown the uncanny ability to sow the seeds of discontent among the people of those countries at just the right time, resulting in “the fundamental transformation” of those countries and new governments being formed. With our States rights blocking the Federal Government’s intrusions into their own governments, the George Soros funded Liberal agenda can not advance their plans and they know this. Thus they are desperately trying to turn the Wisconsin budget crisis into a national issue. For those of you blindly worshipping Mr. Barack Hussein Obama still today, I shall include a very relative direct quote from Mr. Obama right here and right now:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America

While that now famous statement, uttered at the beginning of candidate Obama’s speech at The University of Missouri, on Feb. 19th, 2008, seemed relatively harmless at the time, when we look at the Soros pattern of undermining governments across the globe, coupled with what we see happening in America today, that statement should be very disconcerting to even the most naive of Americans today.  For the Liberal deniers of reality that want to say Obama didn’t say that,  here is the video link, provided  just to prove it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ffwY74XbS4 The problem that I have with the Obama/Soros transformation of America motto, is that it is as Anti-American at it’s roots as another group, cpusa.org , that is being rallied to join the protest today by the Communist Van Jones. Right on their homepage they announce their participation in today’s protests.  His rallying cry across the leftist stratosphere here in America to join with their Union brothers today in the protests contained another covert codeword for ratcheting up these protests across America: Solidarity. These radical Anti-Americans are now trying to turn this country into another mish mash of Communists/Socialist power brokers just like in the dysfunctional Afrika we see today. The divide and conquer theory is being heavily applied here and it is being ratcheted up today across America in the attempted dismantling of State Sovereignty. Thus the importance of Governor Scott Walker and others, in standing their ground against the Unions, Liberals, Socialists and Communists marching to the beat of George Soros, Barack Obama, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and their very clear Anti-American agenda.

I pray there will be no violence in these radical, State government protests today that clearly represent a clear and present danger to America and her people. These paid George Soros puppets, Unions thugs, Liberal Socialists and Communists will be out in force today with the direct support of todays Democratic Party. Remember this in 2012.  Since Barack Obama has not denounced this form of domestic terrorism upon the working taxpayers of America, we must only conclude one thing:  He supports it 100%. This is how he plans on “Winning the Future” here in America, starting today.

Wisconsin Protest: Jackass of the Week Award.

Wisconsin State Senator Jon Erpenbach (D- of course) has been all over the news this past week, as he is one of the Democrats in Wisconsin that ran out on their duly sworn oaths of office that mandates that they show up in the Wisconsin State Legislature and actually do the job they are being paid to do. For this type of action, plus his total denial of reality in his press statements, (provided below) I have bestowed upon him the dishonor of the Jackass of the Week Award!

There is your Jackass of the Week folks. Let me be clear on one point before I lay out the criteria as to why he gets this dishonor. I see other websites and online news groups being pressured and bullied when putting up public information on our elected representatives.This game of childish hide and seek from the people they serve has to stop. The people have the right to know who is doing what, and how to identify them so when they see them they can address the issues that concern them.

We have thousands of elected Tyrants across the land that refuse to answer their taxpayer funded telephones, refuse to answer emails and letters and think they can just hide from them. If you don’t want to talk and/or listen to the people you serve, then get the hell out of government, it is that simple. We will not tolerate this kind of oppression any longer. We will be heard and you will not stop us from sahring information that shows your true colors. Clear enough?  So there is the Jackasses picture for all to see, in case you run into him while he is hiding in some hotel, bar, restaurant, or wherever these sad examples of the Wisconsin Senate Democrats are hiding.  Tell him to get back to work, or recall him and the rest of these self-important obstructionists.

I found a very interesting article over at  FOX6NOW.com* that contained a quote from Mr. Erpenbach. In reading this quote, I discovered that this man is the same age as me, and I found myself wondering how he could make such misleading and false statements on national TV. Is he really this out of touch with reality, or just plain ignorant ?

“Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach said he and his colleagues wouldn’t return until Walker compromised.” and went even further into his complete denial of reality with the statement, “It’s not so much the Democrats holding things up,” Erpenbach said. “It’s really a matter of Gov. Walker holding things up.” (Emphasis mine)

How could  it be that Governor Walker is holding things up, when you are the ones acting childish and irresponsibly, in running and hiding out in another state?  Talk about twisting the facts around there. When we hear ridiculous statements like these, we must always consider the source. This man was born in 1961, grew up in Wisconsin, then did 2 years at a college in Oshkosh. ( no degree mentioned in his bio) After that, he worked for 3 Wisconsin radio stations, then went on to work in the State Assembly and Senate in media relations and as a communications director. Yes that is in bold type, because that is an amazing bit of information considering his recent statements that earned him the Jackass of the Week award here. Media relations and Communications Director? Can you say spin doctor? How about propagandist?  This guy must be a hell of a spin doctor to get elected to the Wisconsin senate with what I view as zero real world accomplishments or any proven skills in anything other than media propaganda artistry, which is also a nice word for being a skilled liar.

Now that we have taken a closer look at this man’s accomplishments in life,( or lack thereof) take another look at his face up there. Here we see nothing more than a petty propagandist who represents the Democratic Party of today, nothing more.  How in the hell he got elected to the Wisconsin Senate was truly a mystery to me at first glance. In seeing his background in media spin, and the Liberal  Democratic Party he represents today, it certainly doesn’t seem like such a mystery any more.

Congratulations Senator Erpenbach, on winnng the Jackass of the Week award. We will be watching for your future media spin interviews from wherever you are cowering down these days to hide from doing your sworn duties in the Wisconsin Senate. Who knows, maybe you will win the Jackass of the Year award before your irresponsible actions come  to a head up in Wisconsin. Now grow up, get back to your duly sworn duties in Wisconsin and stop acting like such a disgusting, pathetic,disingenuous two year old !  The people of Wisconsin deserve better than this. And one more thing,  your party LOST the elections. Elections have consequences, as we have all been told for the last four years of tyrannical Democratic rule in this country. Remember that?
