Especially if the “you” happens to be an AWOL Wisconsin senator with a “D” after your name. Somebody stood up and said enough is enough, and now the state police will be getting involved. The somebody was the Republican senators as we see here.
Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate passed a resolution Thursday calling for police to take 14 Democrats into custody for contempt after they fled to Illinois to avoid voting on a bill that would strip public-sector unions of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald signed the orders after Republicans voted 19-0 calling for the action unless Democrats returned to the chamber by 4 p.m. Thursday.
Drum roll please…..
None of the Democrats did, prompting Fitzgerald to sign 14 orders of detainment in dramatic fashion in the center of the Senate chamber. State patrol officers watched silently from the gallery.
No surprises here. As I’ve been saying all week here at the Command Center, stop wasting tax payer dollars Gov. Walker, fire their AWOL arses and appoint replacements!!!
Republicans calculate that the absence of the Democrats has cost more than $250,000 in taxpayer money for the salaries and expenses of running the House during the walkout, which Bosma called “a very expensive temper tantrum.”
And there’s EXACTLY what I’m talking about. That’s just $250k, take a look at THIS!!!
Wisconsin Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch told the court that it would take $500,000 to supervise the removal of the tape, $6 milion to restore the damage to the interior of the building and an additional $1 million to restore damage done from items taped to the exterior.
Gov. Walker, do the right thing….bill each and every friggin union that sent their thugs to cop a squat on the Capitol building. DO NOT make the law-abiding tax payers of your state foot this bill. Obviously if they sent their people there and not to work, then the union coffers CLEARLY can foot this bill.

Robert Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-uh! thinks he’s a pretty tough little shit doesn’t he? Seeing as how he thinks he speaks for the anarchists ‘n all…
CENK UYGUR: Secretary Reich, this isn’t just about let’s get the money from the rich because that’s where it is and they’ve accumulated all the wealth up at the top. It also makes sense for the rich if we had more equal distribution of income because of the effect it would have on the middle class. Tell us about that, why do you think that’s the case? . . . Now if you go buying less cars, less homes, less everything, how are corporations and rich people supposed to make money? I mean, it hurts everybody, doesn’t it?
ROBERT REICH: Not only does it hurt everybody, but it also breeds a kind of anger.
Oh, wook – widdle Bobbi’s stamping his feet and banging his widdle sippy-cup. Inn’t he just so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute?
I mean, so many middle-class people, lower middle-class people, working-class people, are frustrated. They are anxious, they worry about paying their bills.
Actually, we worry about all that while at the same time worrying about Demoscum imposing their Draconian, confiscatory tax schemes on us.
They see people at the very top getting away with, well, the equivalent of murder:
No, what we see are people getting compensated according to agreed-upon contract, and while we wish we could be that successful, those of us who think with our heads rather than our dicks understand that being successful isn’t a crime.
Or at least, it wasn’t, until…
look at what happened on Wall Street. There’s not a single Wall Streeter that’s actually been indicted or brought to justice after that huge implosion on Wall Street. And people get cynical and they get angry.
No, they just had your homie the Ayatollah and his fellow Demoscum in the then-Imperial Socialist Congress decide that they were going to try and tzx their earnings at something like 90%. That’s why we got “cynical & angry”.
And then they see, uh, Republicans are very good at channeling that anger toward what? Government, immigrants, public employees. Well, an angry population and an angry populace could just as easily turn their anger toward the very rich.
No, actually, this time we’ll be turning our anger towards you and your fellow Demoscummic statists & anarchists.
And, given that it’d be your sticks & rocks vs. our .45s, .357 Magnums, .380s, 12-gauges and 30-aught-06s…you might wanna rethink that one.
Again, it is in the interest of the people at the top to actually call for a more equitable distribution of the gains of economic growth and a better tax system: a tax system that is fair.
Bring it, Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-uh!, you pussy. I fucking dare you.
