Walker left the police and fire unions out of the public employee reforms in the last bill. That should be remedied.

FULL Right To Work across Wisconsin!

My favorite from the DUmp:

66. We all were watching Al Sharpton and Ed Shultz and they had us pumped to win.
So then we crashed?
Maybe? Just a theory.

Maybe, just maybe, a DUmmy learned something tonight.

-—Hopefully all states follow Wisconsin’s lead - and toss out collective bargaining just like Walker did.——

It’s also the funding mechanism for the hard core Marxists, so it’s a winner on two levels.

Two fingers are two fingers. Better than nothing. I’m sure it tasted good. I got home a little after 9. On the way back, one of the guys checked on his smartphone, and said CNN was saying “Too close to call”. We talked about that, then spent the rest of the time telling jokes.

I walk in the door, Julie had Fox on, and Walker was declared the winner with 34% in. I go “Huh?” So I had a glass of wine and watched until the tally was at 99%, then hit the sack.

Congratulations Gov. Walker, Lt Gov. Kleefisch and Senators.

Congratulations to the normal, clear thinking people of Wisconsin.

Congratulations to the Tea partiers for their victory over the thieving union thugs.

Breathing a sigh of relief, a grateful America thanks you all.

Is it the VA in Madison? I tied there as well, except I usually see my doctor at the clinic in Rockford. Haven’t been to the hospital in Madison in a year or more.

My parents are buried in Mound Prairie cemetery West of Twin Lakes on 104th St. So we get back once a year or so. Also have relatives living West of Burlington, just North of hwy 11 (NE of Spring Prairie).

I could see tour buses running along hwy 12, but there’s not much draw in the surrounding country (except Lake Geneva, of course). I doubt Twin Lakes gets many, they don’t have the resort structure they once had.

“Meaningless. Republican areas need a certain amount of turnout to make up the heavy Democrat cities of Madison,Milwaukee, Wausau and Oshkosh. These areas are NOT producing what is needed”

“CAN THE MEDIA HEAR THE TEA PARTY, YET????”

The lamestream media has a serious hearing impairment, but last night’s results scream loud enough that even their ears might be ringing.

And today is our day to celebrate with Scot Walker...beer and brats!

This is a 4 minute video where my saying
“My Governor’s a Jedi, Wisconsin for the win!”
originated.

It was a youtube posted on FR by afraidfortherepublic, our WI Ping List holder.

It is an inspriring video, with a Star Wars Theme, and made by a young Wisconsin conservative man. He is AWESOME!

I watch this video regularly, for inspiration, and to see what great young conservatives we have in America. The younger generation, some of them, really “get it”. This guy is awesome and talented too.

Cheers!

Not sure you guys care at this point - but I wanted to follow up.

I was off on the Dane Co. Percentage projections, but there is good news.

Republicans got 31% in Dane Co. last night, up 1% from 2010.(I was looking for 35% maybe 40%dreaming) up 4+% from 2008

I think I was close about the 50/50 split on higher turnout in Dane.

Also of note - there was 110% turnout in Dane Co last night - take from that what you will. haha - basically 10% more people than are registered did same day registration and voted...

I’ll take a small victory over here in Dane Co. up 1% is going the right direction.

We got a big win overall in Wisco last night and can’t complain a bit.

Thanks again, acw. One downer though, looks like the shennanigans paid off for the Dems in Racine. I hope that there is an investigation into the fraud there and that someone(s) finally goes to prison for this BS.

ALL

I have heard today on Mark Belling’s show, that Wanngard (can’t spell his name) the one who lost by 750 “votes”, has NOT conceded.

Too many suspected (we know it happened) fraudulent votes.

I am SO glad he has not conceded.

We have brave and steel spined Conservatives here in WI.

Thank God for them all!

I hope the crimes committed that resulted in that “loss” will be exposed, and further “reward” the evil left, with some jail times and also a reversal of that election result.

Keep on praying, Everyone, we need to win that seat back!

I’m not sure how much the DUmmies have learned. A victory of 53% to 46% is respectable but not huge. If it is true that Walkers supporters injected seven times the money into this race, then it might be a result to be concerned about.

No?
0bama won the 2008 elections over McCain by exactly the same 7 point margin, and the Lamestream media called it a “landslide victory”.

Oh puleeze! By how much did 0bozo(who vastly out-raised McCain in 2008) outspend McCain? Didn't hear anything about that being a “matter of concern” when 0bozo won.

It’s UW Madison. Downside to living here is that if you need comprehensive medical care, you’ve got to travel to Madison or Milwaukee.

Totally agree with you. Herculean is the word. But, never say never. It will take time....what do you say, Illinois? It begins with the first step.

Then you know how great a city it really is with the world’s greatest symphony orchestra, one of the world’s great universities and probably the greatest blues scene in the world. And the food? OMG. You can eat in fabulous rests. every day and never repeat yourself.

The Lakefront is gorgeous and, of course, American architecture was practically born here. Much of America’s great literature and writers were connected to this city.

Sounds like it’s quite possible the 110% turnout had to include an overrepresented sample of Republicans among the same-day registrants? That is awesome, and such a sweetly unexpected result.
