I assume he is referencing WISCONSIN EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, INC., Wisconsin corporation, Entity ID W034666

Fprawl said...

I'm not saying that these protests are boring but i am reminded of my Reporter friend that had to go to EVERY city council meeting in our 15,000 pop home town for 30 years.

Now the disclaimer.

Gentle commenters, do not construe this as a call to quit covering it. This is a personal opinion, not a value judgement. It is a humourous aside.

You pay your dues when you are the press. Maybe something exciting will happen again.


Are they still getting free pizza?

Original Mike said...

Man, the grass on the capital grounds is going to be trash this year.

MadisonMan said...

@Original Mike, I was surprised when I went to the Farmers' Market on Saturday how nice the grass looked. It's at its worst nearest State Street. But even there it doesn't look bad for early Spring.

Isn't corporate propaganda just called marketing?

The corporate media lets you see the ugly protesters and union plebes.

You don't see the financiers and corporate yids in their skyscrapers or silicon valley chateaus, humping cheap ho du jour or spinning around in porsches.

I see the small creature has left its burrow to once again scream, “I am here and I DO matter”….after having, no doubt, posted several entries in its blog, but of course no one can be bothered to visit, so instead it comes here.

The small creature's you, Joe the piglet. --you can't write, scum--at least..oink

yr heroes Kissinger and Hillaryberg were on TeeVee! Oinking in good corporate-AIPAC fashion.

They seem short on specifics. I am not quite clear what our tax paying, employee hiring Wisconsin companies are doing that is bad.

Can some ask this guy what his problem with private employers is. Please be specific.

Original Mike said...

They're evil, Chuck. What more do you need to know?

MadisonMan said...

I look at that sign and all I can think is: Not very practical when walking through a crowd.

Most of the corporate propaganda these days is from the welfare-industrial complex, underwritten by all those terrible banks people like J say they hate.

Nice little bit of anti-Semitism you got there, especially right after the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Rising.

Say, "Hello", to your buddies Adolf, Heinrich, and Reinhard (not to mention Josef and Lavrenti) next time you see them.

PS Anybody wondering why Little Zero wants the Feds to divest GM at this particular moment?

We were told how urgent it was to save those 3 million jobs 2 years ago.

Chuck66 said...

Rhetorical Question? Gas prices rising, Volt a failure, GM losses likely…worse in Summer 2012….better to sell now, that way you may forget the pain inflicted on you in 2009 by the bail-out and its subsequent failure. It’s politics, Obama doesn’t even think GM is going to make it.

Being opposed to zionist-WASP rackets and KissingerCo does not imply approving of nazis, except to pathetic irrational morons such as you, Edu, and the A-haus trash. Some of us keep it real, and that might mean unPC at times--funny how the teabuggers have become the PC sobsisters they once hated.

Of course not. You just got caught with your pants down (not a pretty sight) and you have to try to weasel out. Some defender of the People.

Some of us keep it real, and that might mean unPC at times--funny how the teabuggers have become the PC sobsisters they once hated.

Real for you is a long read of the Daily Worker, the New China Daily, and off to the message boards at Kos to get your talking points. And then you have to wank off to make yourself feel tough enough to come here.

PC Nothing PC about standing against anti-Semitism. All you Lefties are such dhimmis (or dhummies, if you prefer) anymore, so afraid the Moslems will come after you, you'll do anything to try to appease them. PC these days is worrying about offending the "Muslims", and siding with Hamas and the Dinner Jacket against Israel.

You know what I don't get? Why those who are said to love working people, hate corporations who employ the greatest number of working people under their roofs. I mean, who do they think work at corporations? Clay animation figures?

Leftism, when reduced to its most basic logic, simply doesn't make sense.

@vbspurs: let's not forget those righteous watchmen and watchwomen on the tower at MSNBC and the New York Times, who's sole raison d'etre is to keep alive the vision of a just and humane society, and point out the next danger facing our beloved citizens.

But first this word from our sponsors, and please turn to page A23 and continue reading the column next to the advertisement from an evil company.

Not only are both entities corporations, but they rely on other corporations to continue to exist, all the time they rail on the evils of corporations.

The gig is up.

People will do as they will, but I find it’s pointless to argue with a small voice who’s major goal is provoke a reaction and so prove its own existence…it’s arguing with a fool.

The ARGUMENT is the reason the small pathetic voice is here. No one notices the voice otherwise, and no matter what it does to improve its blog, apparently, the result is the same, silence, in its own life. To relieve that silence, to prove its relevance the small voice wanders by a real web site in order to feel “real.”

I try to avoid arguing with a voice that has no other reason to be, other than to prove, to itself, it is….

vbspurs said...

They were the first corporate sponsors to pull advertising from Wonkette yesterday. I surmise that because PJs are a large, well-known company, the matter gained a lot of traction instantly with other corporations, like Huggies.

After I tweeted yesterday, two others replied back that they were looking into the matter. Macmillan Cancer in the UK, and Broward Health in Florida.

Original Mike said...

Thanks, Victoria.

That's why I get all my news at Althouse!

Fprawl said..."I'm not saying that these protests are boring but i am reminded of my Reporter friend that had to go to EVERY city council meeting in our 15,000 pop home town for 30 years."

I don't say it every time, Fprawl, but regular readers know: A "café" post on this blog is an open thread. You can talk about whatever you want. I just put up a photo to make it look interesting on the front page. The photo does not restrict the topic.

Sometimes the term isn't "café" -- you'll also see teahouse, restaurant, tavern, hotel, etc. etc.

But these are open threads and should be treated as such.

Sorry, it comes over me every time I see a protester carrying a "Corporate propaganda" sign.

AJ Lynch said...

Wonder where this kid buys his sneakers and clothes? Home-made perhaps but looks corporate to me.

bagoh20 said...

Madison, Wisconsin, the now world famous home of the beta male. Come visit and see them in their natural habitat. Watch the mating ritual complete with flamboyant displays to attract the females, and hear their strange mating calls of "fuck you", and "go home". All part of their simple yet endless vocabulary of chants and taunts designed to entice the opposite sex into a disappointing mating, culminating in a state funded medical procedure. Come see it all wrapped in the beauty of the Wisconsin springtime.

MadisonMan said...

BTW, I'm digging the new Union South. Very convenient for coffee, although I have quibbles about door placement, but then the old Union South was also kinda hard to get into from the direction of the building I work in. I think the walk is about the same distance for ice cream.

AJ Lynch said...
"Wonder where this kid buys his sneakers and clothes? Home-made perhaps but looks corporate to me."

My reaction, also.

If the expressed anti-corporation sentiment is not exactly disingenuous, it's at least a bit misguided. It's almost as if Nike, Adidas, Apple, Amazon, Gap, J Crew, Abercrombie and the other fab outfitters and suppliers of the "proletariat" have been given some kind of dispensation.

Hagar said...

Hoosier,
Will you also call for an investigation when the prices fall out of sight?

I do not pretend to know how it works (and I am beginning to think no one knows), but as far as I can see "The Oil Companies" get to ride with the prices just as we do, except that the effect on them is inverse to ours.

AJ Lynch said...

John J:

Agreed. But we have to give him credit for at least one home-made thing - his sign.

Depends on whose mouth.

"Bordello" or "Bagnio" will also work, a tad more elegant. "Den of Iniquity" or "House of Assignation" for the verbose.

SGT Ted said...

Unions are greedy corporations only interested in money. You can tell by the way they act.

Paddy O said...

"Will you also call for an investigation when the prices fall out of sight?"

Of course not. As consumers we can and should pursue our interests, it is in our interests to have lower gas prices for all kinds of reasons, and it is the broader interest because the money that goes into gas would otherwise go some other direction

Not that this is even likely to ever happen again for about 100 years, but if gas prices do bottom out you can absolutely bet that the oil companies will push for some kind of investigation and response, because that is in their interest. So checks and balances are made in the context of competing interests.

Right now, the consumer is getting hammered in every direction because it sure does seem that some corporations and industries are allowed to abuse the system while the government ignores or fosters their abuse. Like with banks.

Phil 3:14 said...

I was listening to excerpts from Obama's Facebook online meeting/Q+A. He's in campaign mode. It got me thinking what will be his key messages (I assume Hope and Change aren't going to do it anymore.)

What I came up with is:
-Healthcare Its gonna work
-I'm not beholden to those radical Tea Partiers like my opponent (the 2012 version of "I'm not Bush")
-The economy is moving up (of course, the critical elelment there is what the economy will be in 2012)
-Win the Future

In short, I can't imagine a strong message for his campaign.

(I know "Its morning in America" won't work.)

"BTW, I'm digging the new Union South."

I plan to enroll at the University this fall and I'd never actually been on the campus, just driven around the edges of it. It's beautiful. I don't know if they just did new construction or if I'm confusing UNM with some other university, but they've got theaters and bowling alleys, etc., and all sorts of impressive facilities. Not to mention awesome landscaping. I don't think there is any more impressive gardening than at universities.

And it's all sort of conflicting. On the one hand it's excessively pleasant. On the other hand I'm thinking of how much everything costs and who ultimately pays for it.

"Of course the big corporations who give $$$ to Obama are all clear."

Obama was just in Palo Alto and San Francisco yesterday campaigning for big money via his favorite Silicon Valley corporate financiers, like Facebook, and Salesforce.com. These corporations must be the "good" corporations so they're a-okay. All the other corporations that don't give big bucks to Obama are propagandists. (sarcasm)

Synova said...

In California I liked Round Table Pizza. In Albuquerque there is a chain called Dion's that is good. I like the artichoke and pine nut one the best, but in the category of regular red-sauce and traditional toppings they're pretty good, too. Everything-with-green-chili is very good.

But mostly we get take-and-bake from Papa Murphy's.

Best thing about Waterloo Station is the EuroStar to Paris. Not cheap but then again nothing in either London or Paris is ever cheap.

And RIP Elisabeth Sladen (1948-2011) known to fans of Dr. Who as Sarah Jane Smith, companion to both Jon Pertwee's Doctor and Tom Baker's Doctor and star of her own series "The Sarah Jane Adventures" for the past four years. They did one season of that one here on Syfy or BBCA.

You know what cracked me up about this Hannity Muslim caller? That he had the audacity (oft-heard) to suggest the State of Israel exists because Christians used the Bible as justification for putting them there.

Because these idiots have never heard that Israel is where Hebrews come from.

Also note that Helen Thomas shares the view that Jews should go back to where they belong -- Germany, Poland, New York.

It's incomprehensible to me.

Go see it at 8-9 PM, in as full a possible a theatre. It really will make all the difference, trust me.

Oh my. I wonder if my kids know.

In a way it's sort of funny; the major stars who passed so recently they wouldn't have known or cared about, but they'll probably care about losing Elisabeth Sladen.

They were really effected when the Sham-Wow guy passed... at the same time as Michael (who?) Jackson.

If you think oil companies make easy money, why don't you invest in oil company stock? I did about 20 years ago. You can start with a couple hundred dollars and $50 a month in a dividend reinvestment program (DRIP). I feel good every time I fill up, no matter how much it costs. I have some of both Exxon Mobil and Chevron Texaco. Right now any commodities are a good bet.

It's interesting to see just how much influence the Tea Party will have in 2012.

The problem with the Tea Party, for Obama and his ilk anyway, is that it is an amorphous, leaderless group. Criticism becomes shadow boxing. The Left were flailing like flounder until they went after the Koch Bros' billionaires meeting, but to most Americans, that still sounds like Glenn Beck's Soros obsession -- weak, paranoid, bizarre.

Bush was a much more effective counterfoil.

I remember when my grandmother used to send the Queen a wire of congratulations on her birthday. Today, I tweeted my good wishes (@BritishMonarchy). Somehow, the former seems more meaningful, and permanent. Let me explain. Maybe one day, after the Queen's time, when there'll be an expo showing all the telegrammes received by the Queen in her lifetime. You can't do that with tweets, Kimsch.

Many moons ago people used to congregate to watch movies. Even if they entered one-at-time. Going to a movie (at matinee prices), took care of people who were going stir crazy at home.

No downside.

In psychiatry, the term neologism is used to describe the use of words that only have meaning to the person who uses them, independent of their common meaning.[2] This is considered normal in children, but a symptom of thought disorder (indicative of a psychotic mental illness, such as schizophrenia) in adults.[3] People with autism also may create neologisms.[4] In addition, use of neologisms may be related to aphasia acquired after brain damage resulting from a stroke or head injury.

(or maybe J is actually wv out of control.

or maybe Skynet!)

You know it just occurred to me with that protesters sign. Notice how wide it is, as if the intention was to include long words or a longer phrase. Is this an example of not not planning ahead

"Bordello" or "Bagnio" will also work, a tad more elegant. "Den of Iniquity" or "House of Assignation" for the verbose.

Jeez, what the hell is wrong with "cathouse"?


Oh, no, mum. This is no roadside dive. You want people to think Harry Reid slept here?

This is a parlor house. Think Charles and Belle Cora.

Kimsch, I don't see Ann as a Madam.
Synova maybe, or DBQ possibly. Freeman is too fertile; she must be protected. Possibly Beth, who is used to cathouses populating New Orleans. Me, I'm bad with money, and wouldn't know how to deal with crabs, so I'm out.


Call Ann Madame because she is a married lady, but, yes, I can see the good Professor in a fitted, off-the-shoulder, black velvet something, wearing a picture hat and some very expensive jewelry (gifts of admirers) explaining the delights in store ("Let's take a closer look at those breasts").

PS I see what you mean about DBQ (no offense, ma'am), but I think you would make a splendid countess. It's all about display and your charm and saucy worldliness would make you an excellent inducement to step through the front door.

In any case, you call a doctor to deal with the crabs and let your accountant having grazing rights on the place

Cat house talk (not to mention any sort of PC offending talk) seems flat post-Deadwood.

"Kimsch, I don't see Ann as a Madam."

Didn't mean to start something.

Actually, that's exactly what I meant to do.

And, you, a... translator?

Needless to say, there's a difference between madam and Madame, but a woman can be both.

PS If I see Ann in black, you would be in your heliotrope boa (matching evening gloves and hose, naturally) with a glass of champagne in your dainty hand.

Don't forget the 10 carat cocktail ring. She must have that.

You know what cracked me up about this Hannity Muslim caller? That he had the audacity (oft-heard) to suggest the State of Israel exists because Christians used the Bible as justification for putting them there.

Because these idiots have never heard that Israel is where Hebrews come from.

Also note that Helen Thomas shares the view that Jews should go back to where they belong -- Germany, Poland, New York.

It's incomprehensible to me.

Of course its nuts.Its all nuts. I was quoting you quoting that moron J to get a rise out him with his own crap inverted back to him. Just to see what he would sputter. I guess it didn't come across that way. Same as with my other nasty comment to get a rise out him as well. Shouldn't feed the trolls. My bad. Sorry.

London Times, 1891: On the death of the showman P.T. Barnum:

"His name is a proverb already, and will continue to be a proverb until mankind has ceased to find pleasure in the comedy of a harmless deceiver and the willingly deceived."

The above is part of an interesting, extensive NYT obituary:

And at one point, a strange choice of words: "The scene at the deathbed was deeply pathetic."

well shit.
Dealt the fucking Jew card.
Hang on to it - 'cause these are the chosen ones.
Discard - as they are oppressors to the righteous hard working Palestine peoples.
Hold - because when led correctly, they act in self interest.
Discard - because the liberal
American Jews are not in alignment with any notions of self preservation.

J - well played!
