For those of you who don't know the festival is named after Robert "Fighting Bob" LaFollette, former governor of Wisconsin back in the day and the creator of the Progressive party. The progressives did more good for this state in a week than the democrats could do in a year. Today the LaFollete family is still represented by Douglas LaFollette who is now and will be, the last secretary of state for Wisconsin. Scott Walker eliminated the entire office of the secretary of state as a personal attack on the LaFollette family who fought for years to help people in need. to create jobs with fair pay and safe practices, to level the playing field in general for the great citizens of the badger state.
Walker of course hates and despises all such notions as a radical right wing corporate tool. People often ask me where does all his hatred and spite come from. The answer is a simple one, Scott Walker fits the psychological profile of a psychopath, that being a person without conscience or emotion who is free to behave without the burden of ethics or morality. But that is the subject of a future posting.
Speaking of Scott Walker it seems our radical governor after promising to add a quarter of a million jobs to the state, and then causing us to lose over 30,000 positions, has created his first job. The lucky recipient of this position is none other than former U.S. Attorney Steve Biskupic, that might be pronounced 'bisquick' I'm not entirely certain. Bisquick is what came up on the spell check under his name. Mr Biskupic is a very busy man indeed in his new position as defense attorney for Scott Walker. It seems that Walkers past is catching up to him rather quickly this week. Apparently our governor in his previous position as Milwaukee county executive, hired some cronies of his and paid them with tax dollars, to work on his campaign illegally and that was their only job. Told you he has no moral or ethical cognizance.
Anyway yesterday the F.B.I. raided the Madison home of his Walkers former chief executive and confiscated materials and computers from her home. The former chief staffer Cynthia Archer is the third person involved in the 'John Doe' investigation of Walkers campaign practices so far. For over six months now thousands and thousands of us have worked tirelessly against the inhuman radical agenda of Scott Walker and we are on the brink of recalling him and lieutenant governor Rebecca Kleefisch. And now it seems if this investigation continues on the logical path up to Walker he will be removed from office by the fed before we can even recall the soon to be, state's first one year governor. Well as long as he is gone I suppose we will all still be overwhelmed with joy.
Of course there is the small possibility that some extreme promises will be made clandestinely to the other defendants, and they will perjure themselves to defend Walker. That would take some very serious money and I don't see how it can be funnelled to them at some future time without attracting notice.
Anyway that's the news from the capitol today, we are all anxiously waiting for further information and details to be made available to us. Insiders in Madison are cautiously stating that Walker is likely to be politically doomed for life by the end of this year. Lets all pray that they are correct. Solidarity forever.
On Wisconsin! FORWARD!!!!
