Rebecca Kleefisch is a former television news anchor, turned right-wing politician, and is currently
serving as Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin. She was elected to the position on November 2, 2010,
as the running mate of Republican Governor Scott Walker.

Today, now that more than 100,000 signatures have already been collected to recall her Governor boss,
Governor Scott Walker has sent in his Lt. Gov. to try and convince people NOT to exercise their rights
to sign the recall.

She would rather you simply look the other way and forget the high crimes committed against human decency
by the republicans.

Life in the Wisconsin Capitol on the day the state's new concealed carry law went into effect.

Guns are now permitted in the legislative chambers, but cameras are not.

I wonder- if you carry a camera into the State House Chambers, disguised as a gun, would that be legal?

If someone brought a gun into the Wisconsin state capitol that was disguised as a camera, but they had a concealed carry permit, would they have to allow it?

Scott Walker tried to give a speech at a college celebrrating it's 100th Anniversary. However, he quickly learned that cutting Higher Education funding by 30%, and then banning collective bargaining by the staff of the college, doesn't make him a welcome guest.

College ceremony turns into Walker protest

by WRN Contributor on July 13, 2011

in Education,Politics & Government

It’s not what organizers of Gateway Technical College’s 100-year anniversary planning committee likely envisioned months ago, but in light of the current political climate and with Governor Scott Walker invited to Racine, lots of protesters to his moves on collective bargaining showed up.

The Governor was there to celebrate the birthplace of the technical college system while speaking of the past, present and future of the system. His five minutes of comments were being drowned by chants of “shame” and “recall Walker.” Walker pressed on, his voice elevating for those audience members there to celebrate the centennial milestone.

(I found the video elsewhere and uploaded here).

The Wall Street Journal is running a poll, "Should state employees have collective-bargaining rights?"

Right now poll results are saying no by a wide margin. The website is listed below.

After completing the poll, consider sending to your email distribution list, if friendly of course.

In Solidarity,

Twenty-one years I serves in our nation's armed forces.

Places around the world.

Met people on three different continents.

Yet, today, I miss it so.

I miss being places where history is being made.

Now I am old. But youth carry on. Changing the world.

Tunisia. Now Egypt. Where next?

It is wonderful watching democracy being made.
