It’s not a real Fuck You Friday; more intensive on links and less on profanity. But you should have gotten your fill of profanity from the Pope song, amirite?
Look, those of us who lived in the City have known that he was an extremist, anti-democratic, anti-public welfare kind of guy. He killed the public park system, one of the best in the country, and did his best to cripple the public transit system, and did because it played well in the suburbs. Fuck the darkies, you know?
Over the past couple of days, I have watched rumblings of BAD THINGS, and decided not to pursue them over here; sounded like scuttlebutt at best, and didn’t feel like getting anybody worked up.
But this week, the FBI raided the home of a former walker aide in Madison. She worked closely with him in Milwaukee, and when he moved to Madison, went along; but she almost immediately went on indefinite leave, and the Powers that Be will not let us LOUSY CITIZENS know whether she is receiving pay for her leave or not. Cuz, you know, Republican Politicians are perfectly justified in paying their minions for no work at all, while destroying the support of public employees like teachers who actually, you know, work. Turdwaffle is lawyering up and refusing to talk about it. Mainly because he’s an egregious squeezebag who figures normal fucking people have no right to know what he is doing as an elected official, but also because he is a straight up oligarchical taintlicking asswipe. He professes to have no knowledge of anything. Sergeant Schultz Walker.
OK. yeah. Is anybody surprised that Turdwaffle’s administration is, and his previous administration has been, rife with penny-ante cronyism, feather-bedding and corruption? Fuck, not to me; I saw it during his misbegotten tenure as County Exec.
That cross-eyed motherfucker has been bent since day one. He makes Nixon look like a trustworthy car salesman. The bats cannot descend on him soon enough, and while I do not expect it (because the reach of Kock money is far and can buy forgiveness for everything but finding a dead girl or a live boy in his bed) I am watching these developments with interest.
Also, FUCK YOU TURDWAFFLE.
Wife Sublime just received this email from our Represenative Jon Richards:
This week, I signed onto a letter to the governor of New York urging him to reject a proposal by Governor Walker to relax that state’s ballast rules which protect the Great Lakes from aquatic invasive species.
Right now, New York has very strict regulations on discharging of ballast water, which ships carry to maintain stability on the open ocean. These rules directly impact Wisconsin because any overseas ship traveling to the Port of Milwaukee must pass through New York waters on its way through the St. Lawrence Seaway.
I strongly oppose Scott Walker’s attempt to weaken New York’s ballast rules. Ballast water contains invasive fish, plants, insects and other organisms that are not native to the Great Lakes and Wisconsin’s inland water. These invasive species destroy local ecosystems and pose a serious threat to Wisconsin waterways that support a $7 billion recreational and fishing industry.
The Great Lakes are one of our greatest natural resources. Milwaukee is fortunate to have some of the most beautiful and accessible shoreline to this vast body of fresh water. Ballast water discharge rules must be strengthened—not weakened—to protect this natural treasure for generations to come.
What. The. Fuck.
There isn’t even a pretense that this is for economic growth or jobs or anything like that. If anything, as Richards points out, it will COST the state money and business. This is straight up environmental vandalism for vandalism’s sake. There is NOT A FUCKING THING to be gained by this, other than pissing off liberals and hippies and tree-huggers. And zombies.
And it is FUCKING WORKING.
Fucks sake, I hate this fucking Turdwaffle more with every passing day. I am sure he is happy about that and I hope it backfires on him in a big way.
LeftNut WingJob also posted on this story, although without the entertaining profanity. The Empire is Value-Added! Also, she was later to it than I was. Probably out buying weed.
