The recall effort is still going strong and my hat is off to all those hard working individuals who are out there gathering signatures for the cause. Keep up the good work. It's your efforts that will eventually win this for Wisconsin.
Now that I have a little time on my hands to reflect on all that has been going on recently I decided to google my name this morning and see what people have been saying about the hunger strike. It was stirring to hear about the different fasts going on around the nation to show dissent for different class war agenda's around the country. Then I noticed a couple of sites and postings from people who are obviously quite opposed to my hunger strike and the unions/people's cause. So to address that quickly I would like to say to the haters out there at this time:
Yes I agree with the point that there are worse things happening in the world. But I don't see how initiating a hunger strike in opposition to a tsunami would be very effective.
Yes I agree that there are worse examples of government human rights abuses in the world. But I don't see how flying to Libya and starting a hunger strike in the middle of a battlefield would be very effective.
Yes hunger strikes are physically devastating. But I don't see how people can keep quoting this rule of 3 about me. After 3 minutes without air or 3 days without water or 3 weeks without food, anyone will die!
I don't think there is a single medical professional out there who will tell you that a person on hunger strike will automatically die after 21 days at precisely midnight. There are numerous health factors involved in such things.
Yes I know independent/rational thought is a complicated thing and that the haters are being simple. Which is why we shouldn't let emotions overcome logic and hate the tea partyers and nay-sayers. They are not the enemy but rather more like our little brothers and sisters with developmental disabilities.
On Wisconsin ! FORWARD!!!!
