At Last

I hope SOMEONE noticed I haven't been around for a considerable space of time (though I sincerely doubt it).

Seems a particularly vicious virus took hold of my computer, and seeing as our coffers are particularly empty right now; repair work was low on the "to get things done" list.

But now it's back up and somewhat running, so I can again grace you with my thoughts on events of the day (worth about as much as a cashmere sweater is to a dog, I know :) )

My tv still isn't working at full speed either, so I'm somewhat limited as to current events, but the one thing I was pleased to learn about was that Scott Walker not only survived his recall election, but that he won it with over a 7 point margin...I thought that it would be a lot closer than that, given Wisconsin is such a Blue state and that the Unions have such a strong hold there.

It was like a super cold glass of water after having spent three days in the desert to hear that Mr. Walker won so handily.

Before the election, the Progressives made out that this was going to be a turning point against the 'vast right wing conspiracy' and that all would be sunshine and Skittles for the Working Man; once that evil Rethuglican, Walker, was booted out, and that the Unions would once again regain their power to provide for the "little guy'; so convinced that this was self evident, and was almost a fait acccompli; the National Progressive machine contributed very little in the way of support and/or money, in the surety that their Union arm could handle this simple little task...and they have had a rude awakening.

The People have started to awaken and look around and see just what has been going on, and they don't much like what they see.

Of course, now that they've lost this round, they don't consider this little dust-up important at all (probably because to acknowledge what really happened is to rock the foundations of their whole world view).

They lost in one of their own secure bastions, and in one of the most Pro-Union states in America...against a moderate Union reformer.

Scott Walker has shown the Progressive litany for the sham that it is; in only 16 months he has turned the economy of Wisconsin around: taking as multi- BILLION dollar state debt town to just over a three MILLION dollar debt (are you watching, Mr President?; this is what a LEADER does), he has put the State Pension Fund back on a sustainable (albeit a lower level of compensation) base.

The Unions were infuriated by this, after all, what right did a State Governor have in cutting their cash cow ?!? Didn't he realize that he was supposed just raise the taxes of every resident in the State to support their ever increasing hunger ? How DARE he oppose Public Union compensation at 2 or 3 times (and ever growing) the level of private sector compensation, after all isn't everyone's goal to feed in ever growing amounts from the Public teat? Just tax more of those rich fat cats !

The gravy train ride is over, at least for the moment, in Wisconsin; now we can only hope and pray that this will translate onto the National scene as well.

Under no circumstances look down on, virtually all you could be distressing, given that you not know the person slipping deeply in love with your own smile.

I intended to compose you that little bit of observation to finally say thanks over again on the awesome suggestions you have documented at this time. This is simply surprisingly generous of you to make unhampered precisely what a number of us could possibly have advertised for an ebook to get some dough for themselves, most importantly considering that you might well have done it in case you desired. Those tactics as well acted as a good way to fully grasp that someone else have a similar dreams just like my very own to realize very much more related to this issue. I believe there are lots of more pleasurable instances in the future for individuals who browse through your site.

I now know giving up smoking is almost impossible. I started tobacco while I was really young. It absolutely was the worst wrong move Ive made. Right now 20 years later and I have emphysema. I experimented with a pile of the quit smoking methods however not one thing helped me. My last hope is a electric cigarettes in the end.
