It takes a liberal to raze a village!

Best quote of the month!!

And in the case of the Republican turncoat, “It takes one village idiot to help them do it.”

Doesn’t Schultz always vote with the Democrats? He voted against the public sector union reforms. He is the definition of RINO.

Here is what you need to understand about Democrats.

They possess a Mob Mentality that Common Sense, Facts and Reason cannot overcome. It is part of their DNA, they know they are wrong but it doesn't matter as long as they win the day.

People think Democrat Politicians care about them when in reality the people they elect laugh at them. They are nothing but Useful Idiots.

RINO Senator Schultz knows he is the lynch pin and he is a legend in his own mind. Last year the rumor was that Schultz would switch to the Democrat Party to give them control of the State Senate.

He is a Jim Jeffords without the “jumpin”, at least not yet.

They just want to make sure they own the politics and control the person who represents the north.”

Isn’t that the basis of a representative form of government. The people have control over who represents them. Seems kind of arrogant for him to say that. I guess he just admitted that he had/has no intention of doing what his constituents want.

"...he said in a statement. “They just want to make sure they own the politics and control the person who represents..."

Uhhhhh.... Isn't that what a "government of the people, for the people and by the people" means? What am I missing here?

Slightly more than 15,000 signatures are needed to force a recall, and LaBarre is confident she can reach that in the two months allotted for the process.

That should take a couple weeks with a good campain.

It would have been an iron mine. Lots of that stuff here.

To further my response -

The iron would have been extracted via water and magnets - no chemicals whatsoever..

This company and the GOP compromised, bent over backwards to make this happen - to the tune of 22 or so ammendments to the bill - the Dems never negotiated in good faith and never had any intention of letting this pass..

It’s a real shame, but I think it’s going to backfire on them. Walker will win recall and in November we’ll win back at least 2 of the senate seats...

Gogebic Taconite wanted to create a $1.5 billion open pit taconite iron mining operation in northern Wisconsin.

“While the Pacific Northwest gets all the press concerning lib/sems destroying the logging industry, The Adirondacks of northern NY are filled with towns that barely subsist now thanks to what lib environmentalism and Dem politics did to the logging industry there.”

Off-topic a bit, but until the Adirondack Park is dissolved, and local counties upstate once again can control their futures, upstate NY will continue to stagnate and decline....

In some cases, “forever wild” is the equivalent of “forever depressed”....

OK, I’ll use that as a tagline the rest of the month.
Everybody else is free to use it too:)

Thanks for that additional info. I look for an Obamaphotop with this in the near future.

Again, who do we blame? The politicians? Hell no. Because politicians behave like all politicians. They wet their finger, stick it up in the air, and whichever the wind is blowing that will guarantee their re-elctions, that’s where they will vote. All these Wisconsin voters have to do is look in the mirror. They voted for these politicians. There has to be a lesson here somewhere? Oh yeah, ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES. You voters have to be more careful on who you vote for. Enough said
