DOMA, The Civil War, Scott Walker and Kathy Nickoulaus

The GOP is paying $520.00 per hour to Republican Solicitor General Paul Clement to defend the blatantly unconstitutional DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). Aren't you glad your taxpayer dollars are going to good use?

This year is the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and according to a recent CNN poll 42% of Americans and 54% of T-yranny Party fanatics believe that slavery was not the main cause of that war. They've misconstrued it to be some kind of a states' rights thing. Speaking of the Civil War, why didn't we let the south secede? Is it too late to reconsider?

Sly Scott Walker is now not only taking away paid sick days from workers, he is trying to pass legislation similar to what Michigan governor Rick Snyder has bamboozled. He wants the power to take over districts and replace elected officials should the "budgetary need" arise. Of course, he would be the one to determine that need as well as the appropriate replacement for those officials.

In Michigan this financial martial law has taken over Benton Harbor Michigan a poor (average income $10,235 a year) predominantly African-American (85.5%) town to build a new golf course on what once was their lake-front park. Membership in this exclusive club will cost $5,000 per year.

Magician Kathy
And there is a supposedly non-partisan committee now looking into the Kathy Nickolaus sleight of hand shell game with the Wisconsin election results. Not only does she have a 13 year history of working for in the Republican Caucus for David Prosser ( the candidate she uncovered 7,000 new votes for to change the outcome of the election), her track record of screwing with vote counts in previous elections is absolutely astounding. A true magician, she can make votes appear out of nowhere. It's time for a serious challenge to this level of hanky-panky.
