    Give 'til it hurts to his legal defense fund -- give every penny you would otherwise give to congressional campaigns!

    Or, never mind, just let David Koch do it...

    Daily Kos: Scott Walker establishes legal defense fund

    Forget winning the recall election... he just wants to remain at large in society!

    Yeah he is really chaffing the Union and we know how they hate hope and change, funny thing what Walker has done is helping Wisc. if the Unions don't turn this around they are cooked and they know it that is why they are so hysterical.

    It's not illegal to piss off unions, pubbies have been doing it for decades.

    Why does this one need a legal defense fund?

    He is teasing them in a good natured way?

    Or did you, by chance, mean chafing?

    I'll make a bet of 500$ or less with anybody that the recall effort fails, and that he finishes his term as Gov.
    Any takers? As a matter of fact I'll go 1000$

    Scott Walker is facing millions upon millions of outside Union money in an effort to defeat him.

    In just one year people property taxes have gone down. He didn't have to layoff anybody. And the UP rate dropped to 6.9%.

    Your point? Most of Walker's contributions are from outside influences as well.

    The Badger Herald: Walker campaign nets $4.5M in funding for possible recall



    Wisconsin's total statewide property taxes are up .3 percent in 2012 — the smallest increase in 15 years, according to the Wisconsin Taxpayers' Alliance.

    Read more: Statewide property taxes see smallest increase in 15 years, tax research group says

    A survey by the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators showed a total of 9,000 fewer jobs -- partially offset by 5,600 new hires. That’s the 3,400 net job loss. Again, it would include support staff and non-teaching positions.

    Of those 9,000, we found about 1,500 -- a bit more than 15 percent -- were from actual layoffs. About half were from retirements and about one third from non-renewal of contracts.


    PolitiFact Wisconsin | WEAC says state budget cuts led to nearly 4,000 educator layoffs

    Your unemployment figure is correct.

    One out of three ain't bad.

    Wouldn't that be a cut/decrease in lefty speak?

    That would be saved jobs in Obama speak.
    That would be an increase of about 15000 private sector jobs.The way it should be.Not the phoney baloney government make jobs.

    Do some more homework for me compare it to Illinois situation.

    Oh, I see. You accept lefty/Obama speak when it behooves you to, is that it?

    Do it yourself. That's the way conservatives like to do things, isn't it? Or do you regularily solicit hand-outs from those mentally better off than yourself?

    Everyone hates outside, corporate, special interest money influencing elections. Unless of course it's outside, corporate, special interest money going to their preferred outcome.


    Public employee unions are "croni capitalism" at it's worst.

    I concur sir.

    Its a black or white thing to me.

    Either the ridiculousness that is money in politics is bad, or it isn't. It can't be bad for the goose and good for the gander.

    My opinion is it is all bad, and is the specific vehicle to which 99% of common citizens ills arise from.

    To show how silly it has become Romney has spent on average more than $110,000 on every convention delegate so far.. money is the root of all evil.

    Every donor wants influence for their money...

    It really is sad Darryl.

    Our form of capitalism/democracy has become (or maybe it always was) a form of government where the voice of the people is trumped; merely a facade, by what truly oils the machine, legalized bribery.

    Nothing, and I mean nothing will change for the betterment of the populace as a whole as long as money ; whether it is huge donations from the rich, Corporations, Unions or Lobbyists, is allowed to be funneled in to buy votes.

    Our elected officials vote with the interests of their bank rollers and themselves (after all they want that money) in mind, not you and me.

    Greed has been the downfall of many of the great civilizations throughout Human history....we are just the next in line, unless we demand "true" change.
