Getting what you asked for

"Anybody can cut from education, health care, and they employees. Any clown can do that, oh wait, one did. WI, #47 in job creation, and contrary to the governor's numbers, my taxes went UP, while he spent $1.2 billion more than the was in the previous budget. We will pay for that credit card bill soon enough."

So said Trykon about my comment this morning about Wisconsin returning Scott Walker to the governor's office.


I do not know, nor care, why some counties are blue and some red.

Walker was the target of a recall because he poked labor unions in the eye. His state budget pretty much stripped government employees from having a union represent them in labor negotiations.

Please note: government employees may still form a union. This is a right. How much influence those unions may have over labor negotiations was the issue, which has been twice settled.

My opinion on unions. In support of them. More support. And a good reason why I detest unions. You can, should the notion strike, look up more of my opinion on unions. Simply google Pork Brains with Milk Gravy and unions and you'll find plenty.

Wisconsin voters returned the governor to office over the objections of unions. 

This I like.

Wisconsin voters got the government they asked for.

This I equally like.


Whether or not it is the government they want remains to be seen. 

This amuses me.


Trykon suspects when the dust settles, a majority of Wisconsin voters will not be happy. I do not dispute that. Rather, he may very well be correct. The voters in Wisconsin may very well have poked themselves in the eye.
Trivedi's platform.


I like this and it amuses me. Immensely.


But didja know there was a 3rd guy running? If you saw my opening graphic, of course you know now, but did you know prior? Probably not.


Hariprasad Trivedi is now an also ran. He was not allowed to participate in televised debates, a decision made by the Cheese State media.

If you bother to look at his website, you'll see that he was the candidate most Wisconsin voters, and certainly the voters capable of thinking for themselves, would have supported. The voters who refuse to think and insist on letting someone else think for them supported the Party of Power, be that Damnocrat or Reboobican.

Political pundits are making much of the election and what it means for the coming Presidential Fiasco, I mean election.

Very few of the talking heads will point out Wisconsin really and truly has determined how the nation will vote in November. A majority of US voters, come November, will vote to continue the present policies of letting corporations run government while rights are slowly eroded. Voting Damnocrat or Reboobican merely puts a D or an R with the elected president.

Nothing else will change. In that, Wisconsin is an absolute predictor of the direction of the nation.

Voters will get what they asked for. That is not what they really want, well the only person to blame is the person in the ballot box.
