Step 1: Elect a bunch of dumbass teabaggers.
Step 2: Watch in shocked (Shocked I say!) amazement as they govern like a bunch of retarded spider monkeys

Wisconsin is getting everything they deserve. See also, Ohio, NC, Florida, etc. Maybe next time their voters will pull their thumb out of their asses and do some modicum of research into who they're electing. This shiat is predictable as the rising sun.

BigBooper: trotsky: You know, you are an idiot. Even many moderate Republicans are sick of Walker. Only the moronic "stick it to the libs" contingent gives him support. He's really, really farked up Wisconsin. He's also divided the state so badly that it's splitting friends and family. Booting his ass out of office would begin the recovery.

/See folks, THIS is Union Derangement Syndrome in action. This idiot is willing to cut off his nose to spite his face just so he can "stick it to the libs".

Do you live in Wisconsin? Do you remember what eight years of governor Doyle was like?
Wisconsin is at a cross roads, we will either become another basket case state that slowly disintegrates financially like Illinois or Michigan, or we can work with businesses to bring jobs back to Wisconsin.

We can't all be either on government support or working for the government.

Oh, fark you and that stupid argument. No, we can't all be on Government support or working for the government, dipshiat. We also can't be selling off our goddamn public utilities to the Koch brothers or selling ourselves out the free market. There's a balance and Walker and his cronies are screwing the pooch. Why does Wisconsin and how many other states need to pass the same goddamn legislation? You know what attracts good companies? A good work force. When you cut everything to the bone, sell off the public utilities and make it so one group of billionaire donors get first choice, that will attract appx. zero jobs.
If you think Walker is doing Wisconsin any good, you are a sucker. Bringing jobs back to Wisconsin doesn't farking mean destroying the middle class so the Koch Industries can have a ready made underclass of minimum wage employees.

You are a farking idiot. Not just an idiot, a farking idiot. Go vote for Scooter. Maybe he'll contract with Koch Whorestm so you can get a knob job as a reward.

BigBooper: Because People in power are Stupid: BigBooper: Lets see:

Step one: have one of the biggest political tantrums in decades
Step two: Attack and threaten any business that might move to Wisconsin
Step three: Blame Walker for the effects of step three

Yep, Damn that Scott Walker!

/can we blame him for Wisconsin being cold?

You are sooo bad at trolling. You've got to be more antagonistic towards particular individuals.

Next time work Obama Fartbongo into the equation.

I live with my mom troll attempt.

My post may have been incoherent, but it wasn't an attempt at trolling.

Unions have organized and threatened boycotts of companies if they appeared to support Walker in any way. That includes small business who tried to stay neutral, and wouldn't post pro-union flyers, and businesses that were looking to move to Wisconsin. There is a toxic political atmosphere in Wisconsin, and much of that is fueled by national Union money as they attempt to not only make an example of Scott Walker, but the entire state of Wisconsin. It's obvious that many of the groups operating here couldn't give a rats ass about the state or the people in it. They are working to secure their own power base; in this state and nationally.

Is it no wonder that companies would avoid Wisconsin like the plague? And no, I don't blame Walker for what's going on here. I blame desperate union thugs who are hell bent on holding onto a system who's time has past. They are the ones who would sacrifice not only the people of Wisconsin, but Wisconsin Union members to maintain their power.

Perhaps this makes me an idiot in your mind, instead of a troll. So be it; I'm proud to ride the short bus!

/here's a depressing thought: my vote counts as much as yours

Yes, vilify the unions, that's what companies want.

They want you to forgo the protection and power collective bargaining grants the otherwise powerless worker.

Why is it, instead of people trying to get the same protections and benefits the union guys have, they direct their hate at unions, instead of the bosses with 100x-300x the salary Joe Blow is getting?

I have little problem with the boss getting a lot more than the guy working the line, as long as the guy on the line was getting pay commensurate with his productivity.

This is not sustainable, and is the source of much of our woes, especially when you couple the easy availability of credit people were using to make up for the wage gap.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: They seem pretty southern to me. What's the difference?

Dixie has something of a genteel pompousness, where Texas has more of a yee-haw megalomanical narcissism.

CSB time.

My girlfriend is a food scientist and had to visit one of her company's processing plants in Wisconsin. The plant is in the middle of nowhere and the only place to grab some breakfast is a truck-stop style diner.

So my girlfriend, at a somewhat average height and weight, decides to get some breakfast one morning at this diner. She sits down, and within a few minutes, someone asks her, "You aren't from here, are you?". "No, how did you know?", she asked. And he replied, "Because you could fit through that door. We like to fatten our women up so they can't leave the house."

She said she felt like Liz Lemon when she went to Cleveland.

SkittlesAreYum: How did Wisconsin get the rap of being full of fat people?

When your cuisine is based around beer, brats, beer, cheese, beer and breaded cheesy beer brats, people tend to assume the obvious.

I thought the governor taking away the right of gay people to visit loved ones in the hospital would lead to thousands of jobs. What happened?
