Fighting over posters... it's like something that would happen in a dorm room

But it happened in the Wisconsin legislative assembly.

"This is a sham," cried Brett Hulsey.

I read that aloud and Meade went "Sham! Sham! Sham!" — which is amusing if you know your Wisconsin protest references. (If you don't, look at this and this and this.)

Thumbtacks leave holes.

Hulsey -- a vocal opponent of the measure -- brought to the hearing room large posters showing a photo of a mine and facts about it

Ewwwww! Facts and stuff!

Big Mike said...

I agree with Hulsey and garage. Wisconsin shouldn't do any mining or drilling for oil or whatever.

You should all freeze to death in the dark.

Didn't Hulsey learn anything from Meade?

Whenever I want facts, I look at edited and doctored photos.

Mining is bad. mkay.

Screw the workers, that's the Democratic party.

Hulsey and garage have jobs, why should anyone else need one?

What a petulant little man.

Hulsey. 'nuff said.

Dan from Madison said...

Those shameful Republicans for letting that debate go on for a mere 72 hours.

Vos, or Hulsey?

Original Mike said...

Has Hulsey molested any kids lately?

I didn't know Hulsey was part of Scott Walker's inner circle that was trolling for underage boys in a van.

Yes.

The only people that will get jobs from this mining bill are lawyers. As written, it's almost guaranteed that it will never built. But I don't think they ever intended to build that iron ore mine anyways.

At least Hulsey's posters weren't enlargements of creepy photos he took at the beach.

Hulsey's Madison liberals are 100% against mere mortals that dare to blasphemously invade Mother Earth's bowels and extract Dirty Stuff.

This is fantasy land 101 for the super cool Phd's. One must learn to obey the rules of our highly educated fools.

It's not popular with a lot of people, and surely not the people that live near the proposed site either. Not surprisingly:

With only one exception, DNR would have no authority or power to prevent the mining company from drying up lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, springs, wetlands or wells, so long as the company was willing to take steps to improve groundwater anywhere else in the state.

The only exception is that DNR would be required to include conditions to protect “privately owned high-capacity” wells (i.e., private businesses) from mining company drawdown of water (or the mining company must pay them out), but would not have any power to protect municipal water sources or private residential wells.

Get that? A mining company can draw down and/or pollute any water source they please and there is nothing the DNR, a municipality, or private well owner can do about it. With one exception: a private business.

If somebody harms you, like making your well water taste bad, you can sue. It does not matter who they are or who you are.
