THE VELVEETA REVOLUTION

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, another Republican politician joining in the current Class War Festival is finding out what happens when people wake up. His proposal to end collective bargaining rights for public unions in his state and in the process continue the program of eviscerating unions in the US, was strikingly reacted to by unions and ordinary people all this week, with even more  scheduled for tomorrow.  Silence is the Republican’s best friend here.  If there ever was a time to get loud this is it. Solidarity!

    Hey Steve.

    Amazing how this total wanker emerged from the slime to suddenly be the top a-hole of the moment, (a position that is very difficult to hold on to right now), by blatantly bullying the remnants of the middle class in his own state. These guys allegiance to their corporate masters/benefactors is perverse and disgusting.

    And as I looked at a photo of the guy today, with the oddly lopsided tide of his head sort of sloshing to the side, I honestly wondered what you might do with him. And voila, my reward for pondering that is here.

    Thanks for highlighting this jerk Steve. He’s so lame, he hardly deserves to be rendered so artfully. But it’s great to see the art nonetheless.

    And yes, Solidarity. We are all cheeseheads now.

    The bill also allows a governor to essentially just give away public property to whoever he chooses, irregardless of remuneration to the state, let alone fair remuneration. It also, I believe, fails to provide a clue why some unions lose collective bargaining and others don’t.

    In the old days, a bill like would be ripe for getting trashed by the courts — you know, checks and balances. Different era now. For the worse.
