      of Democrats and Liberals may make you forget what life is like in the other states.  It's not easy when all of radio and nearly all television stations and newspapers are RW or RW leaning.  To get real information, you have to search for it around here.  

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

        disturbing to see that Fox News is on in WalMart, the TVs in GB Austin Strabel Airport, local restarants in my hometown, even my dad's pharmacy that's not a WalMart when I come home!

        And yes it's easy to forget how isolated people in WI can be who simply don't understand or refuse to understand that the main stream media news is mostly slanted to the RW.  Sadly most of my relatives (except for a few of us) are staunchly Republican even though they're deep blue collar or minimum wage workers.  They constantly try to goad me into a fight over politics at holiday gatherings with snyde comments or some nasty comment about President Obama.  I simply smile at them and say, "I don't want to play this game," and
        head over to the buffet table.

        I can't even imagine the fight on a larger scale.

      happens here. I did Kloppenberg recount work, I canvassed for Jessica King. I donated money and time. I went to the Capitol during the protests to add my voice and presence to the crowd

      I have a daughter in middle-school who is being Fitzwalkered-on. Her and her friends are having their futures put at risk.

      I have friends who work for school districts and who are state workers who are in danger of losing their jobs in privatization schemes by the Republicans. I see Walker leading the charge to roll back environmental protections and harm our state parks just like he ruined the Milwaukee County Park System ... once one of the finest in the country.

      I want Walker out.

      I want the state senate and state assembly to be flipped.

      We will work our butts off to have that happen.

      Thanks for listening.

        always willing to be corrected or admonished if need be.  I figure either way I get to learn something.

        It's great that you're so impassioned about local politics.

        I just get sick thinking of how public education is being destroyed, never thought I'd see that in my lifetime.  My folks had a cottage in Northern WI near Eagle River and remember the pristine lakes and forests up there.  It makes me sick to think how Walker could usher in such a period of destruction with the environmental protections under siege right now.  I attended Carroll College for a brief time before moving to New York City in Waukesha and recall the wonderful Milwaukee County Park System as well.  Agreed it was one of the best in the nation.

        I would love Walker out too and contributed to the recall ads efforts earlier this year for the Senate.  I do wish you all the best because it really will be a tough battle going up against all the Koch Brothers money there.

          I lived in Waukesha for about 5 years and one of my friends taught at Carroll College in the 90s.

          It is a pretty right-wing area of the state which is why I am in Dane County now. The Fitzwalkers are trying to turn the whole state into Waukesha County.

          •  Yes Waukesha is very right wing. (1+ / 0-)

            This guy has got to go!  For the good of the people of the state of WI.
