    and LePage, Walker, Kasich and their appointed lackeys are just following the strategic plan.

      ...the Kochs sponsored some kind of strategery retreat for movers and shakers in various walks of life around the country to formulate a plan for moving forward.

      One of the people in attendance was the conservative CEO of HGTV, which to that point had been a successful DIY home-improvement network with lots of good programming. Almost immediately after the conference, HGTV was transformed into the Churn Real Estate network focused, as it remains to this day, on flipping houses.

      The current political environment in this country appears strongly to be the direct outcome of a coordinated plan of attack in states across the country, taking liberal bastions like Madison into uncharted territory and places like South Carolina, where unions have already been busted, even further down the road to oblivion.

      This is the time to fight, because if we don't it will be over for this country as we have known it, and if the past is prologue, we won't like what these fascist oligarchs have in store for us.

      This is all part of a larger master plan. You think multiple dumbasses in multiple states came up with the same shit at the same time by coincidence?

      Look, they see the future the same way we do. Demographics and voting trends are breaking against them. They know next year, with Obama running, is not going to be a good year for them. They'll lose some of the seats they won last year. The trends worsen from there. 2014 all these thug govs may be gone, but by then the damage's dome.

      This may be their last great chance to ram through this kind of legislation. This is their last great chance to drag it all into the bathtub and drown it.

      They're going for broke. They know that it will take us years to rebuild. Hell it took us years to build it in the first place. In the meantime ALEC, the Koch, the Princes, and the rest of the plutocracy enjoy the spoils.

      •  You are right about their motivation (0+ / 0-)

        and desperation.  If we could just cut through the media boloney and get some serious discussion in this country of how huge corporate dollars are going into taking over state governments for these very radical purposes.  People need to wake up and see through the tsunami of BS attack ads and fake grassroots organizations.  It's time for every American to question any slick deluge of information they get from any source, especially on the state level.  "Is the funding for this coming from inside my state?" "Was this piece of legislation written by someone inside my state?  Was it designed for the good of the people who live and work here?"

        I also love your sig line.  If you ever get to Wisconsin, come on over!  Madison rocks.

        •  I'll be there on Patriots Day (0+ / 0-)

          or April 18th to the post-revolutionary states.

          p.s. those huge corporate dollars own the media (Comcast anyone?). No media coverage on this isn't a coincidence either.
