Financial Martial Law Coming to Wisconsin?

There’s a vicious rumor that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is planning to import Michigan’s “financial martial law” to Wisconsin.

Walker is denying this. But this is the same lying sack of shit who kept insisting his union-crippling agenda was strictly because of Wisconsin’s budget crisis. He kept repeating this over and over, but then it turned out…

As you probably know, Michigan’s new financial martial law gives Governor Rick Snyder “emergency” powers to single-handedly nullify and rewrite city contracts, and fire city employees — in any city or town where the governor declares an “emergency.”

And now Scott Walker wants to copy this brilliant idea in Wisconsin. The only difference is, Walker wants to do this to counties instead of cities. He denies this. But in a speech two years ago, Walker said:

“For us, we’ve been looking for almost two years at an alternative for county government. Here’s the tease. We’ve looked extensively. I know many others have looked at this. We believe if they don’t — they being the county board, the state legislature, the governor — give us the tools to act on those major reforms, it’s probably time for us to seriously consider looking at the possibility of eliminating county government, and replacing it with something better. That’s a combination of moving assets to the state, moving to municipal governments, doing it other way, that’s totally different.”

But don’t worry. That quote was probably taken out of context by the liberal media.

Let that bastard Walker and his skanky far right Republicans have their fun. Come next January, he and they will all be recalled, booted out into the street where they belong, and every unconstitutional law they have passed will be deservedly overturned and set right. THEN we'll see who has the last laugh!

Jack: The sooner they get recalled -- and their laws overturned -- the better.

I long ago learned to take rumors with a big grain of salt. However, I wouldn't put anything past Walker.

If he were to do that, though, I think it would only serve to fire up those who want him recalled all the more.

SW: I do hope it's just a rumor. Otherwise it will definitely add more fuel to his upcoming recall campaign.
