I didn't post the donate links, I don't like to interfere with the freepathon but did want to get the info about the ads out there.
Can I help you? I’m a Wisconsin resident, so I’m planning to vote June 5th for Gov. Walker. Does anybody have information about voting absentee, please?
Florida’s much more salubrious this time of year.
You probably have to get voter info from WI voter registar office.
Someone from WI may chime it with info though.
Watch my posts, the TPX is coming to WI in the near future.
If you have donated the max to FR, you can go to the link and donate to the ads.
Isn’t it about time to go back to the Great White North from that salubrious Fl?
Great word, sounds icky but is actually the defintion of something nice!
In 1860, Wisconsin and Illinois were part of the western border of the United States. Known as the most rugged and capable soldiers in the Union Army, many of these soldiers were outdoorsmen already proficient in the use of firearms and experienced horsemen.
Once they were trained in military drill, these men always held their ground in spite of their circumstances. Recent immigrants of good German, Irish and Scottish stock, they made formidable opponents for the rebel armies of Robert E. Lee. The Wisconsin brigades went into battle with typical Union battle flags and a unique symbol of liberty, uniquely their own; a bald eagle tethered to a small perch that was held aloft by enormous specially trained soldiers.
Depending upon the story you like best, this huge bird was found by a group of Wisconsin soldiers as they were training to become soldiers in the Union Army. 'Old Abe' became the Wisconsin Brigade's official mascot.
These were the dark early days of the conflict when Union leadership was continually broken. Bobby Lee, Stonewall Jackson and the Confederacy were rolling up tactical victory after victory. The enormous Union Army, was primarily made up of the Grand Army of the Potomac. At every occasion of battle, the Wisconsin soldier's were led by "Old Abe' sitting on his perch right next to 'Old Glory'
When the fighting grew increasingly intense, Union officers could point at the big bird and chide their men for their having less bravery than that 'old black bird'
Even after his broken wing had mended the soldier's wouldn't part with their old friend, 'Old Abe'. Sometime after the Battle of Gettysburg, the big bird expired from shock, or battlefield injuries. From that point forward until the end of the war in 1865, 'Old Abe's body was wired to his perch. Everyone behaved as if the old bird was alive.
Go to your city, or village, hall and apply for an absentee ballot. I do not know if they are ready yet, but you can put in an application and they will mail you one when they are ready. Be careful about filling out the envelope. You must have somebody sign that they witnessed you filling out the ballot. If you don’t have all the blanks filled in they won’t count your vote.
If you wait until your town hall has the ballots ready, you can vote right there. You can also register right there, if you are not already registered, as long as you’ve lived here 28 days.
Wisconsin Scott Walker Money Bomb ping
FReep mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Here's an update:
The Washington Post just reported that a day after Wisconsin Democrats aired their frustrations with the Democratic National Party for not providing substantial financial support to the senseless RECALL, the Democratic Governors Association has announced that they will be pouring in another $700,000. The money has been designated to fund an advertising campaign to smear the name of the conservative Gov. Scott Walker..The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) is pouring another $700,000 into the Recall.With just 19 DAYS until the Recall vote and poll numbers still very close and fluid, we need to match their support at every turn and defend Gov Walker and the conservative Tea Party principles that he is being attacked on...
.We must see Gov. Walker all the way through to the finish line and send a message to the rest of the nation!We have been making the point that the Recall of Governor Walker in Wisconsin is the first major election of 2012 and the winner will take tremendous momentum into the fight for the White House. The lines have been drawn and it is the union bosses and liberal left vs. conservatives and the Tea Party supporters..This election is not only a fight for Wisconsin. It's a fight for our conservative values nationwide. A win on June 5th will be a referendum on those trying to stifle the voice of the people and hand power back to the big-government public union bosses that want nothing more than complete control of a states budget..
