rudemix: What a great morning to have the realization that instructing my children to emulate those who lead us would probably be a death blow to their lives, socially and professionally. We've honestly begun to elect people to lead us based on how much "free stuff" they promise us things without tangible proof or substance, people that most of us would shiat bricks at having to work with daily. Can you imagine sitting next to this guy day after day and not wanting to kick him in the balls?


FTFY

enry: Isn't the WI Senate out of session until after the next election? What difference does it make who holds power if there's nothing to do?



If the Repubs are not the majority they'd be precluded from certain shenanigans like calling special sessions on short notice.

I'll admit this is hypothetical, but feel free to speculate whether or not it would be in character for WI Republican legislators to do something like that if they held the majorities and it looked like things could possibly flip after November's elections.

karnal: Yeah yeah yeah - and when a Democrat posts on Fark - nobody listens.


Presumably because they're busy reading.

Oh, this is too funny. After Walker survived the recall, all the little Fark Liberals were crowing about "bu... buh... buh... we got the Wisconsin Senate!" Which was stupid to begin with since the Senate wasn't going to be in session and it's likely that the Republicans will retake the majority in the November elections. And now the Democrats don't even have that.

And the idea that a Democratic win means that the Republicans couldn't call a special session isn't even right - under the Wisconsin Constitution, the governor can call a special session as a matter of right. And more importantly, there's absolutely no evidence that was going to happen.

So what started out as a meaningless victory for the Democrats is now even more so. But hey, they wasted $81 million dollars to get it! (Money which could have been used in races that Democrats and their allies might have actually won...)

Just like there was no evidence that Walker was going to enact the radical union-busting bill before he got elected, nor evidence that the radical union-busting bill would help the state's deficit.

So what started out as a meaningless victory for the Democrats is now even more so. But hey, they wasted $81 million dollars to get it! (Money which could have been used in races that Democrats and their allies might have actually won...)

So by that you mean that Democrats wasted $23 million while Republicans wasted $58 million.

PS: Notice I don't need to say "$58 million dollars", because the "$" already means "dollars". The More You Know...

Is he sparkly?

Craptastic: A) WHO?

B) Sounds like he's just mad that the other Democrats in Wisconsin don't like him very much. When a group of coworkers dislike you, it's usually because you're difficult to work with.


He's a non-Madison or Milwaukee Democrat, which is getting rare these days. He also gave them their now vanished majority in the Senate. And it's more that the Madison Democrats (namely mark Miller) don't seem to be able to play nice.

France, 1917. Europe lies torn by three years of bloody war. Private Standish has been in the trenches from the beginning. Sullen, truculent and peevish, he has alienated every surviving member of his regiment; nobody can stand his presence.

"I'll show them," he tells himself on a November moonlit night, hoisting himself up over the trench wall. "I'll go out there in no-man's-land and then they can both sigh to themselves about how badly they wish I could come into their trenches. They'll be sorry!"

I can understand his reasoning. I have for the most part voted democrat all my life except for a few times even though I'm not registered to any party. I don't feel like I'm reallly represented by either group. It's disheartening really.

Good for him, we have too much party bullshiat anyway
