Wisconsin Union Busting: Mission Accomplished
Thank God the Wisconsin Kochsuckers were able to rig the State Supreme Court election earlier this spring. The Court has upheld, by a 4-3 vote, Scott Walker’s Operation Castrate Working People. Just think, if JoAnne Kloppenburg had been elected to the State Supreme Court — remember, she was ahead by about 10,000 votes until Walker’s thugs “corrected” the situation — justice would have prevailed.
While Scott Walker and his fellow Koch Whores shared a group orgasm, Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson dissented. She said the majority:
“…set forth their own version of facts without evidence. They should not engage in this disinformation.”
And the president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO called the court ruling “an affront to our democracy.”
Oh well, win some lose some. In the Win column, California’s gay marriage ban is still deader’n a doornail.
Last year a U.S. District Judge struck down California’s ban on gay marriage, Proposition 8 (commonly referred to as Proposition Hate). A band of snake-handling inbreds known as “Protect Marriage” appealed the ruling when they found out the judge was gay and was living with a partner. Their “reasoning” was that his judgment could not be impartial.
WTF??? The judge couldn’t make an unbiased ruling on gay rights issues because he’s gay and lives with a partner?!?!? As opposed to: Gay and living in a monastery? Gay and hitting the bar scene and coming home with a different partner every evening? What rock did these Taliban wannabes crawl out from under???
Anyway, Chief U.S. District Judge James Ware has upheld the earlier judge’s ruling. Protect Marriage can go back to the 13th century. And Proposition 8 — like Generalissimo Francisco Franco — is still dead.
