It just gets better and better. The Supreme Court is supposed to be our highest level of justice. They are supposed to be blind to all but the legal issue at hand. Now though our State Supreme Court is filled with immoral and unethical people. It is shocking to me that such people could make the court. After such a quick decision in the collective bargaining case, I have my doubts about the impartiality of the court. Then I hear a rumor and read a news story.
There is a news story that our newly elected (you know the guy who – in my opinion – stole the election) choked one of the other Supreme Court Justices (http://www.jsonline.com/news/wisconsin/124551874.html). This of course is just the news story and I’m sure it will denegrate into a he said she said situation and of course because women have so little value in our society people won’t believe her.
Here’s the thing. This man has admitted to calling the chief justice a bitch and threatening to destroy her. Now this report comes out. He says (from the article) that she attacked him and he was merely defending himself. I don’t know about you but when someone attacks me I don’t put my hands around their neck to defend myself.
This man needs to resign and apologize to the entire state of Wisconsin. He does not represent what a good judge should be. He does not appear to set aside politics and look at the legal issues. He seems to be out of control and is turning violent. This is not the type of person we need or want on the highest court in our state.
There is so much going on in politics I cannot believe it. Oh a lot of the hoopla seems to have quieted but really there is a lot we need to be watching.
Supreme Court Recount is going on. There has been extra drama from that arena with votes left unattended and unaccounted for, extra bags or mismarked bags. It makes me wonder if there is some mischief going on to ensure the outcome. You can go to the GAB’s site and see how the recount is coming. There is a county by county breakdown with some interesting info on the home page or if you go into the recount page you can see the HUGE spreadsheet that is used to track the numbers for the recount. http://gab.wi.gov/
Recalls – go out and look at all the signatures. There has been some hinky things there. Apparently on the democratic recalls, dead people signed. Go check out the signatures and see if you catch anything odd. There’s a section and you have to click on each individual group… http://gab.wi.gov/
On a national level I just want to say – WHAT THE FUCK???? I’m outraged that Paul Ryan is my representative. I’ve written to him numerous times on multiple topics and get these idiotic responses. It is very repetitive and impersonal. The bill they just passed is HORRENDOUS. It isn’t up to the government to decide what a woman does with her body but they are once more trying to penalize and prevent women from having a choice.
Every time I hear Paul Ryan’s name on the news, I think what the hell has the idiot done now. It is embarrassing. I’ll be doing everything in my power to get him voted out next. His budget bill was a slap at everyone but the rich. The Republican party used to stand for something but now I think they’ve all been bought. They don’t stand for anything except greed – in my opinion…
