I Took It All Off In The 1980's

Wisconsin politics is always interesting.   Not much different than high school, the cheerleaders can sometimes be the nastiest.  While that uniform may still fit, it will never go back on. To me cheerleading belongs in childhood.

Being attacked by cheerleaders is nothing new of course but the age of these cheerleaders in Wisconsin is a little strange. 😜

My views on politics are individual. I read bills, watch VOTES and executive actions both nationally and locally down to school board.  If you choose not to take the time to do so and would like to simply blindly champion somebody because you got your picture taken with them that is your choice.  Hey I was there once, remember?

If you ever decide to run for office you may be subjected to me and many others like me. People who want the best for their families, children, parents and friends. 

My issues may not be your issues. Some are definitely not important to me. The ones that are I don't care if you are Republican, Democrat or libertarian it's about your words actions and VOTES.  

I have many times thanked democrats for voting the way I believe is best or voicing their opinions. Such as every single state legislator in the assembly and Senate and Racine and Kenosha Counties supporting the Hard Rock entertainment tourism destination that Gov. Scott Walker refuses to allow to be built near the Illinois border and my house.  At NO cost to the taxpayers.  So to all of you cheerleaders blindly defending the governor saying we don't have all the facts etc., are you now off the ship with all of your more local legislators?  How about Congressman Paul Ryan?  Because every single one of them on BOTH sides of the aisle supported it.  

I also believe in government by the people, do you all realize that Kenosha overwhelmingly voted by referendum TWICE to use this decrepit old piece of land, and eye sore, to build an entertainment destination. Bringing millions possibly billions of dollars into the state of Wisconsin right over the Illinois border.

If it's a moral issue for you, my politics aren't interested in your morals.  I'm Catholic, GO BINGO!

If you call yourself conservative, tea party or whatever, and support a $200 million replacement Bucks sports venue bond from the taxpayers in the state budget I don't understand you. Simply because of who the author is?  If you say you don't want our kids raised under common core but look blindly that it is simply being replaced WITH common core in Wisconsin, what do you stand for?  Scott Walker ran in 2010 on repealing the smoking ban, leaving it up to the establishment owners who risk all to do business and make money in and for Wisconsin. Once elected it never happened. I personally like there not being smoke in establishments but if it were left up to the owners, the risk takers, the investors in Wisconsin, I could choose which ones to spend my money at.  I want choice for myself and freedom for all.

Some great things DID happened in Wisconsin and 2011 and 2012, it's 2015 stick with the present. There are dozens of new issues at hand.  If our gun rights start to be removed would you say "Don't worry the Government knows what's best for us."  Not me.  Are you all on board with having your DNA stolen from you without being convicted of a crime?  Yes, that's coming to you April 1. 

Do you pay attention or just cheerlead.  Me, I took that uniform off in the 80s and it's not going back on....ever.
