  • Wisconsin. The state that brought us MacCarthyism is now truly in the throes of Walkerism. For a small moment I thought we might get a reprieve, but big outside money and total naivety has given us the government we deserve.
    I’ve tried to stay mute on this argument, but having lived through the egotistical regimes of Nixon and “Dubyu” when the crap gets up to my nostrils I have to yell out “enough”! "No Mas"!
    Walker has been bought and paid for. There are way too many favors he owes to outside influences. The little guy has no place in his future plans. Only the rich and powerful.
    And speaking of the rich and powerful, whatever happened to the idea of noblis oblige? The idea that if you had “it” you were obliged to further the lot of your fellow man. Instead, they are like jackals fighting over the corpse of society.
    “Me next!”
    “No me!”
    It sounds like children on a playground. Shame!
