A failed state is one that can no longer claim legitimacy or perform a government's core function of protecting the people's basic security.

You can stretch this definition to apply to almost any government you want...

LarryDan43: Take away Madison and parts of Milwaukee and it's Trumperland.


I think it's weird that Madison is a girl's name but Milwaukee is not. Madison is a total dude-sounding word. The suffix is son, ffs. So why is Madison considered pink and cute and pretty but Milwaukee, with a petite "ee" suffix, (Sheri, Terri, Brandee, Trixie, Daisy Lee, et al), is not?

YabbaDabbaDouchebag: So... relocate the Packers, Brewers, and Bucks - and the educational institutions - to solvent states and nuke the site from orbit?

I think there's a lot of good in Wisconsin, but if the GOP want to burn it to the ground, take away the productive parts, push them into the middle and glass-parking-lot the place.

At least it'll be warm there for a few minutes.

/s


You'll have to nuke it anyway if the giant spiders get out of control.

Because Milwaukee means beer, and the only male Madison I know was that wimpy guy from TISCWSLABMUZ.

Frank N Stein: SoupGuru: Everyone needs to vote. The stench needs to be eradicated from our houses of government. And not politely, either.

How do you vote out someone impolitely? Are they suppose to go to the polling stations with sour looks on their face or something?


Something like this?

dennysgod: What happen after the lock-down order was lifted in Wisconsin will be repeated across the other 49 States, residents will have learned nothing, run out en mass, maskless and gathering in crowded and by the end of July the death count in the US will have doubled all in the name of freedum.

I doubt whoever coined the phrase "Freedom isn't free" had this in mind.


Excellent.....blood for the Blood God will be achieved!

I'd say most of the UW system cities have a healthy liberal population, when they're sober.

Tomoko: There should be no such thing as one party controlling a supreme court, I don't think judges should even belong to a political party period. They are supposed to be fair and unbiased.


So you want humans to be replaced by AI? 'Cause that's the only way that's going to work. Judges are lawyers, and lawyers are (a) educated and curious about matters of public policy, and (b) opinionated. The judiciary is one of the branches of government. It's always political.

The lines were no joke. 175 of Milwaukee's 180 voting locations were closed. 5 were open. It's about a third of a mile from the corner down to the poll entrance at the high school off in the distance.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: As intended.

REPUBLICANS WANT GOVERNMENT TO FAIL AND TAKING CONTROL OF IT AND DELIBERATELY DRIVING IT OFF A CLIFF IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO DO THAT.


Heh.
No government means money has 0 value.
No government means intellectual property belongs to everyone and no one in particular.

They didn't think their plan through at all.

Technically Wisconsin is starting to become a failed state when Evers became governor. Why? Well, before he was elected the republican controlled legislature held a lame duck meeting to pretty kill any power a governor has. I know some of those issues were are in the courts. Second, the republican controlled legislature is pretty much doing to Evers what congress did to Obama. Not let him do shiat. Evers wanted more road funding, he didn't get it, so transpiration had to up registration fees for vehicles. Wisconsin had a vote to see if we wanted legalized pot. It passed. Evers said he would be happy to sign that into law. Republicans were like fark no. The sad thing is, the people that vote for republicans are glad this is happening. Yesterday, Evers said small businesses were able to up to $2500 in aid. People were pissed about it, and it was coming from federal grants. The only way to combat this is if democrats in Wisconsin are pissed enough to outvote the idiots and gerrymandering.
