On, Wisconsin!

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Plunge right through that line!
Run the ball clear down the field,
A touchdown sure this time. (U rah rah)
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Fight on for her fame
Fight! Fellows! - fight, fight, fight!
We'll win this game.

The goofy-looking, college dropout Scott Walker has been governor of Wisconsin for a little over a month. In a very Republican year, he had 52% of the vote. Now, for Republicans that is a landslide mandate equivalent to unanimity. Often now, even if they are a minority they claim the right to dictate. His desire is to have a fascist state. Where business and government combine as one (just the way Mussolini and his writer Gentile wanted in corporatism, and what the US had before Franklin Roosevelt).

“It’s like Cairo has moved to Madison these days.” -- Cong. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), chairman of the Budget committee.

Ryan is a good looking youngish man. He is a self-contradicting (R, here is redundant) trickle down theory spouter of rubbish. He may have been right on this one, accidentally.
And other people have seen it too. Egypt is sending pizza money for the unionists.

Walker is a catspaw for the monetary royalists. The Wisconsin state budget deficit is a ruse. Walker wants to eliminate unions. He wants reduced wages and rights for the majority. He wants reduced taxes on the rich and the corporations. That increases the deficit. Kasich wants the same in Ohio, he is scheduled for a worker's demonstration on the morrow. Most of the economic troubles of America are on account of the continuous roll back of Jeffersonian and Rooseveltian Democracy, to the greater benefit of the avaricious and their powerful. Is Bernie Madoff the only swindler imprisoned? The banksters got off scot free and are now receiving millions in lucre, eh, bonuses.

One of the things Walker and his crowd object to is collective bargaining. No bargaining, only dictates are desired. Dictatorship not Democracy. Unionisation is democracy. "Conservatism", Republicanism, or whatever they wish it to be called, is corporatism which is fascism.

Recently, Green Bay's football team won the championship. They are the only municipally owned major league sports franchise, is the smallest town to have a major league team. Some players are publicly backing the workers.

We are seeing interesting theatre there. The Democrats in the state senate have left the state, so as not to have a quorum. In 2003 some Texas legislators did this, and Tom Delay (outside his jurisdiction, of course, but not his desire; he has since been convicted for one of his tactics in fixing and rigging government) sent out the Fed. Aviation Adm., and the Texas state police (Rangers) to get them. Also, thousands of Wisconsin's laboring people have come to the capital in Madison, as well as out-of-state teabaggers to counter protest.
