  •  Sorry, not on topic. (5+ / 0-)

    I just got back from the north woods where I saw 2 recall Walker signs and 2 million I Stand With Walker signs.  I also read about the 12th person granted immunity.  I don't see anything about what this could be.  Someone recently asked me if I thought John Chisholm has been bought.  If he doesn't come out with more soon I have dark feelings.

          well last summer, remember? Do they like Walker but didn't like Kim Simac? Is it the mining? Or is it just the free signs? Hard to believe they voted for Holperin but like Walker isn't it?

            I have noticed that some signs say "Thank You, Governor Walker"  and they are written on the back side of "Kim Simac for Senate".  At least they recycle.  I remember the two most outstanding comments about Simac (hope she's not planning to run for the vacant seat).  The first was that she was "Hot" and the second was that she attended school.  The propaganda machine just keeps rolling.  A friend just told me how the teachers in Chicago are making over $100K and demanding a 30% increase.  He wants Rahmbo to fire them all.  They just believe whatever they want to believe.  Walker solved all our money problems and didn't raise taxes.  I wonder how they will feel this summer when all those public employees can't afford the gas to vacation in their little towns and spend their money.  DUH!

      Once somebody gets one, they put it in their front yard and consider that they've done their part in campaigning for him.

        and even delivers and sets them up free.  If you want one for the Dems you have to pay cash and pick the thing up yourself.  Walkers peeps have been going door to door with signs offering them to various neighborhoods.

        Remember, signs don't vote, people do.

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

          When Walker get's indicted I am going to the Party Store and buy a convict suit and put it on.  Then I am going to every house and business that has one of those big Walker signs and have my picture taken.  I am considering poses that will make the owners of that property proud.  I will also find a horse and stand at the rear.  Then we can post all those pictures on DK.  Maybe we can have a contest.
