[LIVE THREAD] This is the place to post the ongoing exploits of the good guys and bad guys involved in Wisconsin's continuing constitutional crisis...
Funny how a lone Illionois Tea Party member can find the Wisconsin Senators that CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and ABC can’t/Don’t want to find, eh?
That seems to be the big sticking point, and it has nothing to do with appropriations. A quorum isn't needed to vote on a collective bargaining bill, is it?
Thanks. I’ve been jumping all over the place trying to keep up. Links to breaking stories and cross-posts can be posted here. It worked well with the Egypt mess.
Its time to stand up to and show the Unions that they are not going to control America any more.
Yes, please put all your cross posts and any other useful information here. That’s what it’s for.
Glad to be of service. :0)
Right on! Thanks for the thread. We need it. There’s so much information to digest.
Must be something to it.
I heard on Vicki McKenna’s show (a local WI conservative talk show) today that these derelict Senators could be charged with a Class 1 felony under WI law for not performing their key legislative duties (such as showing up for votes).
Pile it on, FRiend!
The link in #7 didn’t seem to work.
Does anyone know where the Demos are holding out?
It’s time for the people to recall all of these cowardly ‘RAT Runners.
Then why hasn’t it been done?
I fixed the link.
That's excellent news. Things are getting out of control enough that this sort of thing needs to be punished severely and made very unpleasant for anyone engaging in these marxist tactics.
Have you heard how close we are to a Quarum?
An "undisclosed location" somewhere near the capitol. I think they are not out of state anymore but I do NOT know for sure. There is so much conflicting information out there and the media is helping them hide.
Maybe this thread can help pull together scattered information and we can get to the bottom of some of this stuff.
One is being interviewed on WLS radio in Chicago right now. All he would say is that he is traveling the highways of Illinois....
A quorum is 20. There are 19 republicans. They need at least one democrat to pass any financial bills.
It would be nice if ALL the Democrats left the COUNTRY!!!
Maybe this will set a trend.
They can go to Egypt or Great Britain. They wouild be happier there. I think even the Russian Federation is too “conservative” for them. After all, they rejected Communism.
At what point are the Senators considered unfit to carry out their duties and relieved?
If someone was really sick or in surgery for weeks on end they would be booted out of the position no?
No..We need government Fat Cat Union Employee Riots first. Government Union Fat Cats are the new Evil Greedy. Robbing the poor to give to the wealth gpvernment employees.
I like seeing these posts. These people are to dumb to figure out that now is not a good time to be saying this!
I heard a radio report claiming that since the Wisconsin State Patrol members belong to a union, they would not be doing a very thorough job of trying to find any Rat Senator who is in hiding out there. No way to confirm that obviously.
GOVERNMENT UNIONS WILL SEE AMERICA DEAD ON THE FLOOR BEFORE THEY GIVE UP THEIR FAT GOVERNMENT SALARIES AND LOTTERY STYLE TAX PAID GOVERNMENT PENSIONS
The private sector is being gang raped by those in government
Watching these spoiled brat union leaches & rent-a-mob protesters in Wisconsin makes me so mad I could spit!
It's time for the productive segment of the population to put a stop to this crap! The country has been bled to near death by these parasites and we're running out of time to save the Republic. What are we waiting for?!
Light the torches and break out the pitchforks! LET'S ROLL!
Wis. Senate Adjourns Indefinitely Waiting for Democrats !!!!!
A crowd of 25,000 attend a "Restoring Honor" rally in D.C,
I say keep them away for at least 60 days.
In the mean time,
1)pass every other single non-quorum legislation that can be passed.
2) start a recall petition for the closest 3 to 4 senators from the last election. You only need 25% of the total vote from last election to recall
3) Turn off their state cell phones, withhold their salaries, withhold their staff funding, cancel their per diem, etc
4) have session every single day and pass one more rule / law that you know will just piss them off.
I’m sad to say that this sounds like step 1 of “compromise.”
Thank you sooo much- I was getting DIZZY from all the threads.
I am trying to understand how it’s legal (clearly it’s not ethical) for a president of the United States to send out his own political organization (Organizing for America) to stop a vote in a STATE legislature.
This is mindboggling:
Also- for what it’s worth- a poll shows 64% of the country is against unions for public employees. And there’s info here also for the rally to support Gov. Walker tomorrow:
Only need one more for a fiscal quorum but we have enough to pass other legislation.
I’d like to find out if they are paying their bills with govt credit cards, then let them know that doing so is misuse of govt funds. Then fine them on top of making them pay it back, after they get out of jail.

You are very welcome. I get so much out of your threads. This is my first. I hope it's helpful.
And while they're at it, make Wisc a right-to-work state, and pass Vermont-style CCW and a stand-your-ground law.
You can pass a Senate rules change with 2/3 of members present, with just majority quorum. Pass a rule that provides a fine of $5,000 for evading a quorum call. Per day.
I'd love to be able to keep my "legally permitted" weapon on me when I cross the border. Now, if I am forgetful and cross into Wisc from Minn with it, I am committing a felony.
I’m all in favor of that. But can we hold off till we get a couple of recall petitions going? If we can just replace one of the run run run dems, then the republicans can do what they want.
This is truly one of the most humorous situations I run across in my lifetime.
I’ve never seen such a bunch of cowards. I’ve seen equally greedy groups but not to the extent that they were willing to make total fools of themselves in this manner.
The unions and Democrats have no conception of leadership.
My question is how do they expect to pay for what the teachers want?
The whole world is laughing.
