Capper and I are true progressives. We do not like the turn our state has taken, in terms of working class, education, elderly, mental health services. etc... We are here to shine some light on that, give our opinions and hopefully spark discussions. Civil discussions(we know we get hyperbolic at times but we do try and stay civil).
Unfortunately that is not where we are at in WI at this point. Ever since this moment in time, WIsconsin has changed for the worse:
Unfortunately, Scott Walker is most successful when he relies on rallying the least common denominator of society. As an example, we have trolls, that literally. 24 hours a day leave the stupidest comments and do it all anonymously(its unfortunate that the way our blog is set up that it allows anyone to post anonymously).
For example, here is a typical post that we get.
Glad to see you're back posting again, Jeff. Say, how's the Chinese Shoe peddling gig going? I saw capper posted a picture of you wearing your brand in front of the xmas tree alongside of some homely creature I'll assume is your wife. Do the rest of the cogdis crew know that while you're posing as a true blue-fist, look for the union label crazy, you're actually the front man for Chinese goods?We literally get these comments around the clock.
Quite the contradiction, if you Democrats had enough brains to detect it. Ta-ta!
It is like there is a small undercurrent of society, who have never won at anything in their lives and have been unleashed with each of Scott Walker's victories. I used to think that the Knot's were the leeches of society but I think now the "Walker base" is one that is not only sick and disturbed but dangerous. The person(s) whose life revolves around leaving these types of anonymous comments are cockroaches!
Do we really want this nationwide with a Walker Presidency? IS this what we want to live with going forward as a state? I would ask for someone on the elected Republican side to denounce this hateful crap but they like walking the line of this unleashed and pretending it is not there.
Bring all of your comments and debate here, even do it anonymously. However if your life is one where you think the above comment is ok, please seek help. You are a menace to society and a coward.
Thank you again everyone for your well wishes, I hope to be back blogging soon.
