ICYMI - Some Days Others Say it Better - Paul Adair on Gov. Walker

If you're like me, the days before Christmas were pretty much a blur. So, in all likelihood you missed an excellent community blog posting on the Germantown NOW website by Paul Adair. His theme? Gov. Walker acts radically, but talks moderately.

You can read his epic take down of Gov. Walker's rehtoric HERE. 

It's true. 100% true. The same can be said for what I mentioned yesterday with the Common Core, and how in an interview with the Journal-Sentinel Gov. Walker and Rep. Vos talk moderately, but by their actions of even convening the Common Core Committee's and seeking legislation, their true intents can be seen.

But it is in the column's closing that I think myself, and everyone who disagrees with Gov. Walker, needs to work at with voters:
Don't listen to what Scott Walker says, watch what he does. He must be held accountable for the radically anti-worker, anti-women, anti-public education, anti-environment, and anti-growth agenda that he has imposed on Wisconsin. Next November, Wisconsin voters should hold Scott Walker accountable for his actions, not his rhetoric.

  1. Scott Walker remembers creating jobs as assemblyman in Wisconsin . It was easy with ALEC. 32000 UNION public sector jobs. It is not as easy this time with out using your tax dollars. Scott Walker has created ALL Wisconsin`s budget problems working for ALEC. In 1997 Walker and Prosser as state assemblymen championed for ALEC with truth in sentencing telling the legislatures it would not cost a dime it was to give judges not parole boards the control over sentencing. Then Walker filibustered to stop sentencing changes after the fact misleading ALL the legislatures. With out the sentencing changes Wisconsin`s prisons quadrupled over night. Most people sentenced to 2 years now had to serve as much as 6o years. It shows Wisconsin has wasted 100 billion if you add the numbers to the state budget since 1997. Not including the building new or remodeling of 71 courthouses & 71 county jails & 441 police stations and dozens of prisons 28 billion plus interest. The total is over 28 BILLION plus the 60 Billion spent by social services to support prisoners families because the bread winner was a political prisoner as US Att gen Eric Holder explained. Then farming out prisoners in several states until the courts realized it was not allowed in the Wisconsin constitution. Wisconsin then hired 32000 union public sector workers to fill the jobs housing the prisoners from deputies , judges, district attorneys all owe Walker for creating there jobs. 32000 UNION PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS. This cost taxpayers over 3.8 billion or a half million per day to house these EXTRA prisoners per day in Milwaukee county alone. Wisconsin claims it has 24,000 prisoners compared to Minnesota`s 5500. Wisconsin`s corrections population is 104,000 with many in half way house and county jails and county prisons that are not counted.
