cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
I awakened this morning to newspaper stories telling me that a Dane County Judge who signed a Walker recall petition has declared the voter ID law is likely costing some 220,000 people to lose their right to vote because they do not have ID cards and therefore has ruled that it cannot be enforced in the coming April elections. I also read of the decision by Democrat Senators in conjunction with one Republican "moderate" Senator who have decided many people in Northern Wisconsin will continue to hover near poverty. I read that Gogebic will withdraw from its efforts to develop mining operations that would employ several hundreds of Northern Wisconsin folks and uncounted hundreds more in Southeastern Wisconsin who would've built the mining equipment.
Where to begin?
Judge Flanagan is biased and should've had the moral decency to not take this case...but he just couldn't help himself when confronted with what he seems to have thought was his golden opportunity for fame and glory amongst his Madison elites.
Senator Schultz, RINO from Richland Center, has had his big day now that he cast the deciding vote to kill thousands of jobs for Wisconsinites Those Democrats who are from that area of the state are just as guilty, if not more so, as they hide behind various concocted 'bogeymen' to justify this purely political vote designed to assure that Walker can't brag about jobs in Wisconsin as he faces his recall election.
I watch and listen as President Obama sidesteps Congress with this and that stroke of genius as he marches us toward socialism. And, the field of Republican presidential candidates continues to be muddled.
We have been in worse places before and always managed to find our way out of the predicaments. I just wonder sometimes if we'll get to a place from which we cannot find our way back. Other so-called 'modern' societies have done that to themselves.
My faith is more important to me every day.
