        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

11/6    Four more years!
        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.
           \_ Can't argue with that.

        \_ I'd never considered Romney's campaign as an ad for Revolution,
           but I guess that makes as much sense anything else.
        \_ The tax cut removal is ill timed.

sell off their Christmas gifts so that they can pay their bills. They also told their workers to cut up their food into little bits to make it last longer. They, like Walmart, will do anything to help their employees as long as it doesn't require paying them a living wage or giving them benefits. Walker's campaign sent out a fundraising email on Friday that really takes the cake (emphasis mine): Friend, Instead of venturing into the cold this Black Friday, stay in and give your children a gift that will keep on giving. This year, we are celebrating the Holiday Season with a Black Friday special that is better than any deal found in stores. Donate $5, $10 or $25 to help Governor Walker get reelected and save your children from a future of double-digit tax increases and billion dollar budget deficits. Instead of electronics or toys that will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season, help give your children the gift of a Wisconsin that we can all be proud of. Governor Walker is helping Wisconsin move forward to a future where your children and grandchildren can experience: * Economic Prosperity * Improved Schools * Freedom From Government Dependence The Governor wants his sons to grow up in a Wisconsin as great as the one he grew up in. When asked why he never stopped fighting for Wisconsin during the Recall, Governor Walker says he has two reasons, his sons Matt and Alex. With your help, Governor Walker is enacting reforms that are securing a strong state for the future of Wisconsin's children. This Black Friday, donate $5, $10 or $25 to help Governor Walker win reelection so he can continue to help Wisconsin move forward. Respectfully, Taylor Palmisano Friends of Scott Walker Yes, you read that correctly. Walker is telling people to not bother buying their children any Christmas presents. Instead, they should give the money that they would have spent on their children and give it to Walker's campaign. Besides using it to jet around the country schmoozing the big money campaign contributors who would help him buy another election and pay for his legal cooperation fund, not much. And if he were to be reelected again, you can count on him making life even worse for our children. He would finish privatizing education, he would kick more kids off of Badger Care and he would loosen child labor laws. Nothing shows the Christmas spirit like denying your kids their gifts so that you can give the money to someone who would only screw them over again. I wouldn't be surprised if Walker comes out with another book soon - a spin off of A Christmas Carol. Except in Walker's version, Bob Cratchett sells Tiny Tim's crutch and gives the money to Scrooge. ADDENDUM: There are some people that are questioning the veracity of the email cited in this post. To belay those concerns, here is a screen capture of the email. November 30, 2013 at 8:13 AM What I find hard to believe is that my fellow Wisconsinites fall for Walker's bullshit and continually put up with his lies and antics. December 2, 2013 at 5:03 PM I still see those "Stand With walker" bumper stickers and lawn signs. At least, they let me know who the sociopaths are so I can avoid them. December 4, 2013 at 10:08 AM It is because he and his wife pray for the people in Wisconsin. You know when you are a Christian in leadership you can do whatever you want and people think it is what God wants too. November 30, 2013 at 8:23 AM If this and his book doesn't end his political future nothing will. We all know that he will disavow knowledge of this fund raising letter if the shit starts to hit the fan. If Wisconsinites don't rebel against this crap we have no future. This is the worst warm, heaping pile of shit that his troops have brought forth yet. November 30, 2013 at 9:04 AM The Governor's mansion has been opened up for the holidays so that the plebes may view the splendor of Tonette's Christmas decorations. I recommend a hearty breakfast of beans, sauerkraut and beer before the tour. Taylor Palmisano appears to be a dumb white college kid who doesn't have any idea how stupid she sounds. Perhaps when she learns how much of her clearly insufficient college education is subsidized by taxpayer dollars she will study harder so as not to embarass herself or her good friend Scooter. Plus she called it Holiday Season, so she has war on Xmas problems on hrr right. November 30, 2013 at 2:19 PM He's really opened Wisconsin up for business.... denying retailers the chance to make some profit by telling people not to shop but rather give the money to him. PUT A LTTLE MUSTACHE UNDER HIS NOSE AND PUSH HIS HAIR FLAT, LISTEN TO HIS RHETORIC AND THE POLICIES THAT HE HAS PUT FORTH AND YOU HAVE ADOLPH STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU. November 30, 2013 at 5:16 PM Capper, have you watched Walker's speech to the Federalist Society on November 22nd in Washington, DC? org/publications/detail/address-by-scott-walker- event-audiovideo What BS -- spinning himself as a moderate. November 30, 2013 at 5:22 PM In the video, he actually tells a story about people in his brother's church attacking public employees -- nice Christians in Walker family churches. He was introduced by a moderator who said Walker is on track to achieve 250,000 jobs by the end of 2014. And the media didn't call the Federalist Society out on that blatantly wrong statement? December 3, 2013 at 9:43 PM HE SAID NO SUCH THING, YOU LIE or YOU MISUNDERSTOOD - you wrote: In the video, he actually tells a story about people in his brother's church attacking public employees -- nice Christians in Walker family churches. November 30, 2013 at 5:24 PM With this clown it's all about him. He'll even through kids and Christmas under the bus to get what he wants. Pretty soon he'll use his majority to legislate away Christmas. November 30, 2013 at 5:31 PM What the poor, without good jobs or healthcare, in Wisconsin fail to realize is that Walker took the "totality" of workers' wages & benefits and cut them. They still don't see that this has caused average wages for ALL Wisconsin workers to drop by about 10% since Walker has been in office. And the poor Walker supporter schmucks are shooting themselves in the pocketbook. December 2, 2013 at 11:03 PM Obama For America, the president's re-election campaign, introduced its Obama Gift Registry in June 2012. The organization asked Democratic voters to 'register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift' for their birthdays, bar or bat mitzvahs, weddings and anniversaries. December 3, 2013 at 6:38 AM Thanks for admitting you're a sucker or a paid hack, so we know to ignore you. Hmmm, given the recent comments by trolls, sounds like this story has real damage potential, doesn't it? To you LIV's (Low info voters) a donation suggestion of $5-25 is equivalent to not buying any presents for your children? And let me guess, you were just fine with Obama suggesting people forego wedding, anniversary, birthday and bar/bat mitzvah gifts and ask their friends and family to donate to him instead, right? December 3, 2013 at 8:45 PM Yes, because asking people to ask those giving them gifts to donate is the same as telling people not to give gifts but donate instead. December 3, 2013 at 9:06 PM Anyone asking for anything that takes away from the family is an ass!. The difference between Obama and walker is Obama actually tried to work for us little people, whereas walker says f**k u too it's time and again (only cares about those who are better off). So yeah, I stand with Obama, and would beat the shit outta walker if I saw him in person. And no, it's not cuz I'm more afraid of the president either (yes, I would've thrown a shoe or brick at Bush too like that one guy lol) yup, I got balls!
