And Obamacare is Apartheid.  Got it.  Hey, White Republicans, those things you don't like are just like other things that help black people, which you also don't like!

So, how's that outreach to the black constituency going, GOP?

No, no, no. Walker meant this 13th Amendment:

To be fair, Lincoln hired the Pinkertons for security during the war, who later committed some of the most vile and atrocious actions against the organization of labor.  So Walker is marginally-correct.

Subby, you ignorant slut.

Walker said his reforms were "similar, NOT THE SAME," as Lincoln's. He would never try and compare himself to Lincoln, it's just, you know, he's similar to Lincoln. And taking away part of the right to collective bargaining is just so similar - BUT NOT THE SAME, YOU LIBERAL SCUM - to taking away people's right to own other people.

Unions are the bane of government. Unless they are police and firefighters. Their unions are good and righteous. *cough*

Here's the official list of things that are appropriate to compare to slavery:

Slavery.

If the thing you are about to compare to slavery does not appear on this list, think twice before making it known to the world that you are an insensitive clueless idiot who has never actually suffered a day in your life.

He was comparing himself to Spielberg,  not that the comparison is any more apt.
 
2013-12-12 06:06:31 PM
Personally I find Walker amusing. He embodies "small government" and has managed to drag an entire state more than 50 years into the past in socio-economic standards.

Good luck Wisconsin, you need it after having a moron destroy your bio industry and education system that supported it.

Considering there are 26 R state houses and 30 R governors, and the 36th placed no time limit on ratification...  Well, it behooves Dems to get out and vote IN THEIR LOCAL ELECTIONS.

Nothing. It's a knee jerk reaction to lash out at somebody when you feel threatened or your insecurity level rises. It's a common trait of simple minded individuals.

Yes, taking away peoples' civil rights is exactly the same as expanding peoples' civil rights. Scott Walker is a shiatstain and so are all of his idiot fanboys.

Republicans, nothing you're doing these days is analogous to the positive contributions of great people from the past. Nothing.

Sort of.  Pinkerton was head of the forerunner of the Secret Service and then went off after the war and founded the Pinkertons.

He'd founded a railroad police agency before the war, which was probably how Lincoln (a railroad lawyer) knew him.

OK, Walker is asked why his book doesn't cover his failed pledge to add 250,000 jobs, and instead focuses only on his successful efforts to limit collective bargaining for most state employees.

Walker says the book's purpose was the collective bargaining aspect of his governorship. He then points out that Spielberg did much the same thing when he made Lincoln, zeroing in on one aspect of the book from which the movie was based.

Far-left Wisconsin blog goes all "derpity, derp, derp, derp, Walker compared himself to Lincoln!"

He didn't.
