Walker Is Running

Until further notice he’s my guy.

Meanwhile, the earliest I could get an appointment was tomorrow afternoon, so unless there is a cancellation earlier it’s Orajel and Advil/aspirin until then.

    Jazz Shaw:

    Remember, these aren’t just Greek citizens getting up in arms here. There are liberal cheerleaders all over the world who are watching this spectacle and rebelling against the idea of the Greek government having to suffer under any form of “austerity” or make cuts to its spending habits to save itself from economic implosion. One of the common themes you are seeing is the accusation of how Germany and the rest of the surviving Euro neighborhood is trying to punish or humiliate Greece with their overbearing demands. That sort of thinking is truly revealing of the mindset that we’re dealing with not only in Greece, but in the United States as well.

    Nobody is trying to punish anyone. This is a business deal and it comes with all of the caveats which surround any such financial negotiations. The Greeks have put themselves in the position of needing a huge favor and they have very little to back up their promise of making good on returning said favor in the future. In fact, given the results of their recent referendum, any creditor would be justifiably dubious about sending more money their way since they clearly have no national inclination toward paying back their saviors. The base problem here probably comes down to the national attitude of not only the Greek citizens but their elected leaders as well. They have managed to go for a very long time expecting the government to pay their way and care for them with little or no concern for where the money is coming from. And now that the piggy bank at home has run dry, they would like the rest of the members of their relatively recently formed European community to continue to support them so they don’t have to take responsibility for their actions. Unfortunately for them, the world doesn’t work that way.

    As to the charge of humiliation, it’s not being done intentionally but the result is understandable. I’d be pretty embarrassed if I were Greece. For that matter, speaking strictly as an American, if any Europeans were unsportsmanlike enough to come over here and point out how we’ve racked up this many trillions of dollars on our national credit card in such a short period of time I’d be pretty embarrassed myself. It’s nothing to be proud of.

      Germany, which already practices “austerity” in their national budget, is the successful economic power in the EU. They are the major creditor in any of these bailouts. Greece has already been given supportive funds which have been pissed away on national budget that seems to be constantly in deficit. Thatcher said it best that socialism only works until you run out of other people’s money.

      Krugman loves to point to Iceland, which did default on their creditors, as an example of it not being so bad. The problem is that the people in that country ended up with huge credit card interest rates and Jimmy Carter levels of mortgage rates.

      Scott Walker’s path to the 2016 presidential race is littered with the bones of vanquished opponents.

      Since 1990, the Wisconsin governor’s name has appeared on a ballot 14 times, and he’s failed just twice — a winning record that’s central to his pitch to Republican primary voters. Along the way, he’s left a trail of defeated challengers, many of them gripped by resentment toward a foe they recall as crassly opportunistic, loose with facts or blindly ambitious.

      Yet for all the lingering enmity, as Walker prepares to announce his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, his rivals also grudgingly respect him as a rare and exceptionally canny politician who’s constantly underestimated and always outperforms expectations.

      He’s a sneaky-smart campaigner, they say, a polished and level-headed tactician, a master at reading crowds. He learned the value of ignoring uncomfortable questions, rather than answering them. In hindsight, the many politicians he pancaked on the road to the national stage — in races for the state Assembly, county executive and governor — almost invariably see his career as an elaborate practice run for the White House.

      To David Riemer, who fell to Walker in a 2004 bid for Milwaukee County executive — a nonpartisan race — Walker’s wiles can be summed up by a single moment during one of their debates. Riemer, sensing Walker’s desire to run for higher office, recalled placing a sheet of paper on Walker’s lectern that included a pledge to fulfill an entire four-year term. Sign it, Riemer demanded.

      Walker sensed the trap right away.

      “He just let it sit in front of him. He didn’t get it back to me. He didn’t rip it up. He didn’t turn it into a paper airplane … he ignored it,” Riemer said. “He understood very well, one of the key lessons in political life is they can’t print what you don’t say.”

    Right now I think Walker/Rubio would be the best ticket. I like Cruz but Rubio might pull Florida into the R column. Perry/Rubio or Perry/Walker would be my next choice.

    I almost violated one of my cardinal rules and listened to a politician give a speech. Phew! that was a close one.

    Meanwhile, this ROCKS:

    ATLANTA, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Dear Vegetarians;

    We respect you. We respect your life decisions. With that in mind, we want it to be abundantly clear that this letter is not meant to sway or convert you. We’re sharing this to offer our support.

    Nearly a year ago, we embarked on a journey to tell America about our meats. By now, you’ve likely heard the Arby’s tagline: We Have The Meats®. It’s tough to hear, but it is what it is. We have many meats. And we have quality meats.

    It is understandable that you disapprove of our meat-bravado. Your voices have been heard. Letters, emails, voicemails, Tweets and Facebook comments – we hear you. We love our meats, but realize they’re not for everyone.

    Then on Sunday, June 28, we launched a meat innovation that has likely tempted you: Brown Sugar Bacon. It’s our pepper bacon, glazed in-restaurant with brown sugar and then cooked to perfection. It may be hard to resist…even for you. Hardcore vegetarians likely won’t budge, but for those of you who are on the fringe or new to the game, avoidance can’t be easy.

    We, at Arby’s, have created this temptation. So, we’d like to help.

    We’re giving you a number to call: 1-855-MEAT-HLP. This is a Vegetarian Support Hotline. When your nose betrays you and alerts the rest of your senses to find and devour this sweet meat, please call 1-855-MEAT-HLP. You will receive the support you need to resist this gateway meat and get tips on how to avoid temptation. Delicious. Sizzling. Temptation.

    Be strong. We’re here for you.

      But David, he won the first and recall elections with same opponent, a well liked Democrat -Barrett, by almost the same percentage points approx. 6.5. The last election was a joke running Mary Boo Boo Burke who ran away to South America when she was fired from the family company.

        We had two couples – four school teachers in all – move into our condo community after they deserted Wisconsin. Then they found out what it was like to actually live in heart of their perceived heaven of fellow kool- aid drinkers. Between the cost of living, the taxes and the fact that they could not deal withthe school systems in this area including the attitudes of the administrations/school boards/students/parents, they high tailed it back in less than a year.

  19. Myiq2xu says:

    Who is Scott Walker? He is supposed to be from Wauwatosa. Some say his father was a Baptist. Nobody believed he was for real. That was his power.

    One story the guys told me, the story I believe, was from his days in Madison. There was a gang of labor thugs that wanted their own union. They realized that to be in power, you didn’t need guns or money or even numbers. You just needed the will to do what the other guy wouldn’t. After a while, they come into power and then they come after Walker. He was small-time then, just running numbers, they say.

    The union thugs knew Walker was tough, not to be trifled with, so they let him know they meant business. Then he showed these men of will what will really was. After dissolving the union, he lets the last member go. He waits until the recall is over and then he goes after the rest of the mob.

    He fires their kids, he fires their wives, he fires their parents and their parents’ friends. He forecloses the houses they live in and the offices they work in, he fires people that owe them money. And like that he was gone. Underground. Nobody has ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook story that Democrats tell their kids at night. “Rat on your shop steward, and Scott Walker will get you.”

  23. Haha! I like him, I do. His lack of a college degree makes him number 1 in my Hierarchy of Voting rule book. Hillary would be the first choice based on her vagina, except there’s that “in the absence of fascism” clause. I don’t think I can pull that level, but time could change things I suppose.

      I will give this one to o. They were commutations not pardons and under todays sentencing all would have been free by now. Two did involve guns that were not discharged maybe more I just skimmed the list. One guy got 200 plus months for growing pot. I can see the rationale.
