I stole this picture from some whiny hippie blog crying about union "rights"...
Wisconsin, the land of the cheese, the abode of cows, where beer flows freely and commie hippies are allowed to walk the streets un-punched. What's up with that? You would think a state that is shaped like a closed fist would be all about punching hippies, but alas, it is not. Such sacrilege on this, the official American holiday known as Hippie Punching Day. Well, it isn't official yet, but we're working on it.
Tomorrow is a big day for Wisconsonites, or Wisconsoneers, or whatever they call themselves. Lets just go with "cheese-noggins" for expediency's sake. Tomorrow is the big recall election where the cheese-noggins decide whether or not they should punish their governor for committing not one, but two treasonous crimes against the state: actually doing what he said he would do during his election campaign, and effectively solving Wisconsin's budget woes. You see, people are so used to politicians lying in their faces, that when a politician actually tells the truth it creates riots in the streets.
Sure, most of those rioting in the streets and acting like complete morons are public union lackeys that pretty much only care about themselves and their sweet deal of benefits that Governor Walker kinda destroyed. But rioting there is, which led to a recall of the Governor! That's right, the minority that did not get their guy in office decided that instead of just throwing temper tantrums and hissy-fits in that unique hippie style (which includes drums and off-key chanting and singing garbage), they would take it a step further and put it up to a vote...again.
Now, I suspect that these unionites, or unioneers, or whatever they call themselves...lets go with thieving sons of Karl Marx for expediency's sake...are pretty much just being selfish. I mean, put yourselves in the shoes of the thieving sons of Karl Marx here. Their plight is horrible. They face the prospect of losing benefits that most workers in America could only dream of, all on the tax-payers dime. That is difficult to let go of, so they riot about it. I know a lot of them are teachers and stuff, and supposedly educated, but I don't think a one of them are educated in economics, like, what happens when your employer can no longer afford you? You get canned. I figure that is what Walker was thinking when he said "know what, I can save a lot of your public workers' jobs if I just cut some of your bennies".
Seems reasonable, but in the land of un-punched hippies, the motto is "a job with ridiculous benefits or no job at all! And I expect ridiculous unemployment benefits if you choose the latter option...". I know a lot of pundits are looking at this recall thingy and thinking "ooh, this can tell us how Wisconsin will go in the Presidential election". Yeah, sure, ok, whatever. What this recall really is about is whether or not the voters in Wisconsin want to still be the People's Socialist Democratic Republic of Wisconsin, or if they want to just be Wisconsin and start punching some hippies like true Americans.
