Who's Going to Jail Now?

Democratic Headquarters?
To the chagrin of impassioned activists in Columbus Ohio, Kasich's anti-worker bill passed Wednesday in the State Senate, 17 to 16. To become law, Senate bill 5 still has to clear the Ohio Statehouse where Republicans hold a majority (59-40).Aside from all of its other attacks on workers bargaining rights, benefits and pensions, the proposed bill makes going out on strike a crime punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 or up to 30 days in jail!

AND speaking of misguided, T-(otalitarian) Party mishegoss, Scott Walker's latest prank, aside from blanketing Wisconsin workers with layoff notices, is signing an order declaring that if the missing senators don't return by 4 pm today, they will be declared in contempt of court and face possible arrest. So, if we don't get our butts in gear to stop this tsunami of tsupidity we may alll meet in "the place where there is no darkness," that Orwell alluded to.
