Mark Neumann and Scott Walker 08 17 2010
These two Republican candidates do not understand money and have a Stone Age mentality with regard to how to pull an economy out of a downturn. When I first heard that Newman was a former math teacher I was optimistic about his candidacy because both my parents were teachers. However with regard to math and how it applies to money, when an economy is down you do not pull out by counting how much money you have every day.
Why kind of a role model tells us that we cannot do something? Should not our political candidates also be good role models for our young people? What is the first thing Scott Walker did when he became county executive; he closed all the county parks. I wonder if Scott Walker even knows what kind of fertilizer is used on our golf courses and what its impact is on our water quality, you know the stuff we drink that is required for life, and not the stuff that you know when you drink it you will likely become cross eyed or lazy eyed. Are these the two role models that tell us we cannot do something? Part of government responsibility and those seeking office is to ensure progress. Neither of these two candidates have the authority or nature of government understanding to do this. Nor do their comments express optimism in Wisconsin or our future. Expressing optimism is the true nature of a leader. And leaders lead by example. What poor leaders they are for us already.
I find it odd that they think they are going to appeal to their well educated Republican base by cancelling a program that links the State Capital of Wisconsin to our heavy populated shore of Lake Michigan city Milwaukee. If Scott would become governor what would he then say sitting in his office in Madison, “The first thing we will do is close Milwaukee?” Typically the wealthy and higher grade point average students of Milwaukee and High Schools of communities near by it seek as a goal to attend the University of Wisconsin in Madison, as it is still considered the preeminent University of Wisconsin. Does not Scott Walker understand the value of a sound education? Would not a high speed rail system between Madison and Milwaukee facilitate a greater intelligence level in Wisconsin? Would not Milwaukee benefit from a quicker and more convenient commute to the State Capital? Would not this facilitate greater change and improvement to our state as Madison is our Capital and a source of funding for other programs in the state, Milwaukee being one of the two largest cities of Wisconsin. How come Walker as the Milwaukee County Supervisor does not realize why faster travel to our states capital is important for our states future? Faster streamlined travel would better facilitate a state wide community of communication and understanding that would address the needs of this State’s future. The change that we see in the world has already surpassed the capabilities of either Scott Walker or Mark Neumann.
Beware of political candidates that have a negative stance. “We can’t afford that train.” I heard one of these two say on the morning radio. An optimistic candidate would say we could and the reason why and make it happen. An optimistic candidate would also revoluntionalize our state in terms of clean alternative energy and infrastructure. Do we want to put into office a candidate that says, “We can’t do that?” What good will a pessimist do for us? When they make all the way to the position of President of the United States they often take us to war. Not only should we put that high speed rail train to Madison but we should also run it straight west to the Mississippi River. Believe me the Mississippi river is another one of Wisconsin’s great natural resources that we are ignoring and polluting just as much as Lake Michigan.
Scott Walker or Mark Neumann would not have a clue as to how to plan, organize, staff, oversee, fund, bring to fruition any such programs. They are a negative influence on the state of Wisconsin’s future already.
As third graders these candidates should have been sent home for bad behavior and setting an example of bad behavior.
Once again I have said too much and now fear of getting shot by a member of the mongoloid race, i.e. today’s new Republicans. But I’ll continue on anyway.
Another Republican on this morning’s radio program mentioned that there are only three ways to make social security work, 1. Raise the retirement age. 2. Decrease benefits, 3. Increase taxes. This snake is very pessimistic and indeed misled the population of Wisconsin today. What he needed to say is that we need to grow the economy in order to create a higher tax base. How come he did not think of saying this? Because he is a pessimist. He knows already he has no ability to grow our economy. Large programs of change, improvements in infrastructure, clean and renewable energy programs, and programs that clean and provide for clean lakes and rivers are required to do this. Neither of these two candidates would have the ability to successfully conceptualize these.
Another Republican candidate said that we need to fund our deficit. Who was he kidding? Republicans do not know how to pay down a deficit. Once the money goes into the treasury the first thing they try and do is give it back to taxpayers in the form of tax cuts. I paid as much as, if not more in taxes than the average Wisconsinite last year. And I do not believe the role of government is to put me through the time and hassle of filling out tax return only to give the money back to me. That money goes to the Treasury to keep the country up to date on an international scale and protect us from the inequalities that lead to a lack of repair and maintenance. Much of the oversight that government provides was lost by Newt Gingrich's smaller government program. This country needed the checks and balances that were eliminated. Those checks and balances would have seen that the SEC was in fact doing the job it was intended to. Those checks and balances would have ensured that the Federal Reserve that regulates the banking industry would have done its job. Those checks and balances would have ensured that our education system kept on “TRACK”. That larger government is for our future. Republicans view their political positions appointed in government as a chance to more of a dog eat dog world, an everyman for himself world where those who already have money Republicans do well. This country no long has the power or infrastructure to regulate and take action against those that are crooked. Why? Because that is the way Republicans want it because they are themselves crooked. Our founding fathers of immense capabilities would have nothing to do with or any association with their ilk at all. Our country was founded by those who could not stand the likes of today’s Republican Party. They would have regarded them as useless, crooked, lacking any real skills, of little true intellect and poor role models.
Another Republican candidate mentioned that nuclear power is our only option for this countries energy needs. This is a man that offers no future for our country. How can we make more nuclear power plants when we never really truly addressed the issue of how to deal with its radioactive waste? And these nuclear power plants are run by human beings just like the oil well in the gulf. Does anyone remember Three Mile Island or Chernobyl?
The cumulative effect of increased focus on alternative energy would solve our countries energy needs. If every building in the United States had a solar array on its roof that would do it right there. The air and water would be cleaner to. No Republican could ever conceptualize the cumulative effect of such good programs. It is just not part of their mental framework. They do not even understand what a high speed rail system from Milwaukee to Madison would mean to this country.
I would like to consider Wisconsin a Green State. Isn’t this what most of us like about it? The lakes, rivers and forest, the (County Parks…shooo don’t tell anyone I said this parentheses part.) I would like to think that our actions today would leave a viable future for our residents. First and foremost this relates to a clean environment. Our water is loaded with Mercury. Now this Republican candidate who dared to express his opinion on public radio professed that we should rely on nuclear power. Why doesn’t he hire the workers from another large player in industry to man it BP Amoco. Why doesn’t he privatize it like utilities are, and staff it with those responsible BP Amoco workers? I can see it already the plants implode and we have to rely on foreign oil AGAIN. After forty years of mistakes in this country and being wrongly influenced by the Republican Party when is this country going to wake up. They don’t belong in office. And we should not have to put up with their counterproductive tactics and policies. They way they have subverted our bureaucracy to stagnancy and then wars is a crying shame.
Our water is loaded with Mercury and now they want it to be radioactive in the future also. Mercury is a heavy metal like the lead. Lead paint that was banned in the early seventies. Mercury water has yet to be banned yet. But there should be a national program that would lead the world by example to ban Mercury water. Now the short sighted Republicans are setting us up for a future of radioactive water. How well are our children going to learn as their skin is peeling off, their teeth are falling out, they are glowing in the dark, and maybe they are a good shade of gray too. It is a little known fact that children tend to act up in the classroom when the barometer is falling. This is because there is more pressure inside their skulls on their brains. This is made worse when Mercury is present in their bodies, why because it is highly toxic to cells. And when cells expand as they do when the barometer drops they are indeed more vulnerable to Mercury that might have been kept more distant from them in our bodies. It is a great source of inflammation that no Doctor would ever address or be a vocal advocate against on a national scale.
Disposal of nuclear waste has never been addressed. It is usually buried or held on premises. Our nuclear power plants all use water as a source of cooling. And that is what makes nuclear power inherently a risk too great to assume more of today. What happens years in the future when contained nuclear waste corrodes out of its containers and it reaches the water table? There are other risk scenarios where it could leach into the water table also. For example, human error like that that occurred on the gulf oil rig. Terrorist attacks. It’s been about thirty years since Reagan stole the election from Carter who was going to lead us down a better path. Bush stole an election through duress also. When are we going to wake up and embrace solar energy? WHEN? How many wars and oil spills and corrupt oil men skinning all aspect of this country’s infrastructure out will it take for the United States to Wake up. If you think an oil spill is hard and costly to clean up and ruins our national resources and causes a food supply that is now more cancerous, what do you think radioactive water would do for your health? You won’t have any. There won’t be much of the human race left. If they are they will likely be mutated and not for the better. If we follow the path the Republicans take us on will likely be the lesser apes in the future if any descendants live at all. We can’t adapt to Mercury in our water you fools. We can’t adopt to radioactive water either. Doing the right thing means you start going in the right direction, the Republicans of my lifetime have never taken us in the right direction.
The best way to handle nuclear waste is to design energy systems that uses the nuclear waste as fuel and drains its radioactivity to ZERO in the process. We need to develop the science and technology to use nuclear waste like a disposable battery, but better. And we need to learn and implement this before anymore nuclear power plants are built. THIS IS JUST PLAIN COMMON SENSE. Why didn’t Republicans learn this? I doubt they ever learned a thing in school. I bet they were all disruptive child or the high school whores. As a matter of fact that is what all the ones I know have come to be, that or bratty children that were raised in an evil way. (But that is another essay I have written).
Republicans are so dumb in terms of their lack of “INSIGHT” and “VISION” that I often think they are members of a lesser species. In terms of money they are of the “TAKERS” and “COUNTERS” mentality that usually takes us to war and we then count our dead. A lot of us are sick and dying already because of them and their policies of inherent failure. A “taker and counter” of money (Republican of today) will never pay down a deficit. Who are they kidding? A taker and counter gives it back to taxpayers and that subverts the power of the government as there is no money for vision, change and progress. Republicans have lessened the power of government so much so that it cannot even protect us from the. We are now powerless to the way of their faulted idealism's. There delusionary governance has created a society that is blind to its own problems. You see them on television and they never offer a viable solution to this countries problems. The reason for this is because they are this country’s biggest problem today. Today’s problems require the ability to think about and spend money appropriately. Republicans do not have this ability. And indeed they are counter to this and therefore people. Without vision what are they running for office for????
One looks crossed eyed and the other has the beady cold eyes of a rendering vulture.
No one is better at creating fear and selling panic that feeds the profits of Wall Street than a Republican administration. Incidentally, Wall Street is said to be strongly Republican. Anyone besides me got the link between the Republican policies in avoidance of change for the better? How fear and panic just seem to happen during Republican administrations? (1987, 2001, 2007) Fear and panic all cater to the profits of Wall Street. Why? Because Wall Street thrives on the volatility created by fear and panic. They are always standing ready to take a counter position to profit from fear and panic. They short sell long before there is fear and panic and then profit from it. If you disagree with this you do not know of the record bonuses that are doled out to employees after market downturns. Go to your library and research this. They profit from the detriment to the rest of the country in many ways. Not only do they profit from the souls of individuals they steal they have also stolen the SOUL of this country. Wall Street and some larger financial institutions are just as if not more underhanded than organized crime in terms of their negative influence and impact on this country. Wall Street is said to be predominantly Republican.

PS I’ll tear up their stance on health care in a future article, if I haven’t implied enough about them already for you to not want to vote for them.
