From the state that gave us Joe McCarthy: Scott Hubris Walker

bilde

In a courageous act of self-involved hubris, Scott Walker recently provided us with a glimpse into the mind of the “real conservative” who would be king. Addressing the international terrorist issue, Walker declared, “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.”

Sounds like the Governor is suggesting that his union busting tactics qualify him to lead the fight against an army?

Outstanding! So, the key to defeating International Terror Organizations is to decertify them and cut their funding? Maybe, not allow them to collect dues and make them pay for extra police when they peacefully protest!

Yeah, that’ll work.

The oddest aspect of this notion is that this anti-government lifetime government employee actually believes his own BS. Kind of scary, hey?

Fellow Americans, we in Wisconsin humbly apologize for unleashing another right wing whack-a-doodle upon an unsuspecting nation. Sorry, sometimes we get a little crazy up here. Here’s hoping he does little national damage while providing some quality entertainment.

Sorry…

2014 a Quick Wrap-up

During the course of 2014
We’ve lost friends and partners
Even some dreams

More losses in foreign battles
Others to domestic war

Live free (like me) or die
Screamed the American folk lore

Made it to the wrap-up
Been lucky You and I

Hopefully moving forward again
Let’s kiss this bitch goodbye

Final Angry Little Poem on this topic: Unrealistic Expectations

Unrealistic Expectations

A closing story
Swift and gentle
Consistent with
Her view of life

Moving on
No other option
Expecting time to
Dull pain’s knife

Lulu gently died at home on October 19. Moving on way too soon. Long may she run.

Angry Little Poem: Diminishing Returns

Diminishing Returns

She fades on
The easy times close
Only hard days now remain

Dark choice growing near
How many to allow
Measured time versus pain

Embracing what there is
We patiently
Wait for the sign

Another angry little poem: An Observation

Warning:
The tone of the next few poems will be a bit dark. Perhaps even maudlin. Lulu is moving on to whatever is next; I’m sharing the hurt…

An Observation

Watching her
Once so vibrant
Wilt

Forces a
Sight of frantic
Beauty
