What was garage mahal's most memorable moniker for Scott Walker? "Ol' Dead-Eyes"?Walker is a dead ringer for a great WI Governor during challenging times.
Competence is cool
I wonder what ever happened to the gay guy from Milwaukee who made videos dissing Walker? Then there was the guy who cried on TV and spoke of the end of the world in a trembling voice.
I stand for Walker if for no reason other than he gives garbage a stroke.
Good times, goodtimes... Can't wait to get to work tomorrow and learn how Walker is still the Worst Person in the World. This makes the Proggies apoplectic, you know.
And at its next opportunity the State which just voted for Obama and sent whasehernamethelesbian to the Senate will do its best to throw him out and get back on the road to bankruptcy.
He's starving the children. It's a good thing WI's public pension is #2 in the nation as to funding.IL is 50th.We starve the children down, here, too, and load them up with debt.It's for their own self-interest, tho.OTOH, the comcast news thingy said Madison was in the bottom 5 in real estate values, dropped 4%? compared to the rest of the country.
I don't mind Walker.How is the job situation in Wisconsin?Our governor has just produced a huge tax program.I hate paying for other people's kids schools.tits.
Projected Surpluses != Surpluses.If I had a dollar for every time budget projections were correct, I'd be broke. It is better than a projected deficit, however.Gov. Walker also says 250K jobs will develop by the time his term ends. How's that working out?
The real estate here is booming. A place in my building had 16 offers above asking price.I am now getting cards from realtors with amazon and starbucks 50.00 cards saying they have a buyer that will pay 20k over the last offer in the building-sight unseen!I don't drink coffee or tea so I went on their website to see if they had any other shit to buy it is was all coffee and tea related with the exception of a hoodie. Guess I will have to regift them.
I use linkedin for everything, especially recruiting.I sometimes check Madison and Milwaukee and Green Bay for jobs and there is like nothing. Except something at Ray O Vac or some old manufacturing company.While in Boston there are thousands. We are all about start up, VC, new ventures and new products.Do cheeseheads use linkedin? I think it because Wisconsinites in general are much more cautious and don't move around much in their jobs. Wisconsin people value security and complacency.Here if you are in a job more than 5 year they think you are weird.In Wisconsin peeps seem to never leave their jobs.Why can't Wisconsin attract the creative economy? My take at it
Obama could have done that even more betterer.
What?Just some stock photos and no footage of Ann and Meade doing the Hucklebuck or something?I feel so ripped off.PS Remember all those people bused in from Chi-town to stuff the ballot boxes there. That's the only way Little Zero took the state.
Our Governor said today that California has fixed it's budget problems. So they do say crazy shit sometimes. Wisconsin, we could spend your surplus on lunch and probably did today.
This is a really funny post.
Yay! Now what about his proposed higher gas taxes, increased vehicle license and registration fees and a new per-mile-driven annually-collected personal tax? Boy, we'll just be rolling in it...
I wish Wisconsin could turn into a cutting edge creative economy.The midwest doesn't have those industries.As a result the talent that graduate from the UW leave.I am interviewing one of them tomorrow.Sad.
MadisonMan said... Projected Surpluses != Surpluses.Tell that to everyone who talks about how Bush threw away the 'Clinton Surpluses'.But, What difference, at this point, does it make?Oh, also, I hear Scott Walker is going to be indicted any day now......
It would help if Wisconsin had a decent gay scene and was a gay destination.Alas, it is gross.All the the motivated and intelligent fags leave. Which leaves Wisconsin with some fag retail things, a few nurses, some priests, social workers and a few academics-not good enough Sconi!
$484 million, what is the big deal? It's over 10% less than Obama's payback to sugar daddy Kaiser's Solyndra.
(Do you have any idea how much this annoys our fellow Madison citizens?) Yeah, but that's only one reason why I get a kick out of that song. Sometimes you've just got to enjoy someone doing what he loves, in service to what he believes. Plus, the idea of you two dancing to it reminds me of when WI went to the Rose Bowl shortly after I was married to my wife. She (who is not a sports fan) put on her "5th Quarter" CD and we polka danced to "When You've Said WIIIISCONSIN, you said it ALL!" Good times.
garage, when is that indictment coming down ? Probably right after Jerry Brown balances the budget, instead of talking about it.
but you probably should be careful about what you eat and drink around the campus.And don't be there after dark.
If he **really** wants to make the liberals mad, he'll use the money to pay down debt. He'll refuse to spend it.
Unassailable proof that Walker only cares about keeping the banks flush with cash. Women, children, minorities, and gays are most affected by Walker's refusal to fund the social safety nets that are desperately needed by the disaffected peoples of the state. A grassroots movement to impeach him should be started. It would succeed for sure.
And I bet once Democrats get back the governorship and congress they will piss of money again like tomorrow till you are in the same fix again.That is just their nature.
Titus - based on what I read her, most WI commenters seem decent and smart and reasonable. You, on the other hand, seem like a self-absorbed jackass. WI is way better off without you.
Demos don't like budget surpluses
Now what about his proposed higher gas taxes, increased vehicle license and registration fees and a new per-mile-driven annually-collected personal tax?Did he propose that? Or did some blue-ribbon commission propose it? I read about it this morning, but I guess not carefully enough 'cause I don't remember!
AAAARRRGGHH....You made me click on that video!
Thanks AJ, I left when I was 17 looking for brighter horizons and have been fairly successful.Six digit salary, international husband well into the six digits, and we are hiring others into six digit incomes where we live. We are growing the econmoies in our markets.We are doing fine-we couldn't do that in Wisconsin.Overall I am happy and making an impact in the market-we are building something and growing.Lastly we have hot bodes!
Titus said...Six digit this...six digit that...Lastly we have hot bodes!What if your kids are born with six digits?
Massachusetts is hip. Mitt Romney lives there.
Rofl that song is about 3:00 minutes too long. I thought it was parody at first.@TitusWhat's a creative economy?
A creatative economy? That is where people come up with the term "gender studies" and get millions of dollars of state cash to teach it.
(Do you have any idea how much this annoys our fellow Madison citizens?)From the size of the group, I'd say "not much."
Good, Wisconsin needs a rainy day fund for down times.
Lordy, that's a terrible song! The lions are hilarious!
This seems like good news. I'm surprised I haven't heard more about it in the national media.That was a joke.Must be time for Walker to start gearing up for another election, though, right? Isn't he up again in 2014?
...with new estimates that show a surplus will grow to $484 million...chickens.......hatch......
A grassroots movement to impeach him should be started. It would succeed for sure.Or maybe a recall?
I don't really buy into the projected surplus myth for any office-holder.The job growth still sucks, too.
garage mahal said... This is a really funny post.Remember how you were here saying the budget reforms wouldn't work and were screeching about teacher pay?Yeah, it has to suck to be wrong about pretty much everything.
But think of the children!
Job growth sucks everywhere. There might be some hot sectors in specific markets, but it's not widespread yet. The best thing Walker can say is that it could be worse. Contrast Wisconsin with Michigan and Illinois. Illinois is running annual deficits in the hundreds of millions, and will be shifting tax money from core services to pension obligations of state union employees.
Unemployment in MI is 8.9%, and 8.7% in the land of Lincoln.
"Contrast Wisconsin with Michigan and Illinois. Illinois is running annual deficits in the hundreds of millions, and will be shifting tax money from core services to pension obligations of state union employees."I think we should use the surplus to build a wall on our southern border.
We're going to need it.
Hey! We non-leftist FIBs need someplace to flee the PRI, you know.On second thought, you guys have Madison.As long as the wall is made of cheese, I have no objections.
Am I supposed to post a second comment now?
garage: "This is a really funny post."Clearly garage has not yet received his soros-funded talking points yet.Garage, do you feel alot of tension or anxiety while you wait to be told what to write on blog sites? I imagine it can be disconcerting for you.
David: "Am I supposed to post a second comment now?"I'm afraid a second post is a necessary precondition to getting to your third post.
Titus' children have six digits?!LOLHis "children" are flushed away.He keeps plowing his husband's ass but so far hasn't managed to get him pregnant.
thanks man very niceابراج يوم الاحد
