"...and to the Plutacracy for which it stands"


"I pledge allegiance to the logo of the Corporate States of America, and to the plutocracy for which it stands, one nation under surveillance, incorporated, with literal injustice for oil." ~ Jim Hightower

Wisconsin's legislature met to day in an "extraordinary session", which near as I can tell is an almost-never used format to pass emergency legislation such as stripping state workers of collective bargaining rights with little interference from the pesky opposition (or the damned nuisance public). Tomorrow will reveal the bastardy to which we have been subjected, but I am confident that it will not be pretty.

About the only good I see coming out of this is an entire generation of activists is being raised.


Of course, how they will get an education as the Republicans gut funding for all levels of education is not readily apparent. It will take a decade to undo all that this administration is doing in weeks. What stuns me is the lock-step manner the other Republican Legislators are marching along. Do they really all think this is a great plan for Wisconsin? What's in that Tea?
