Late breaking Wisconsin election news – April 6

Comments

214 votes and declare yourself the winner? As vain as Obama.

Loon. Listen to this clueless lefty talk.
I’m so happy that my neighbor State, Wisconsin, is waking up to the nutjobs who want to destroy their way of life.
Go Packers!

Professor: Please continue on as you’ve been doing and God Bless you for that. If the final result is that Obama wins re-election, it will be because too many citizens want the Socialism he promotes; a free lunch and for someone else to pay for it. I find it almost impossible to believe that Obama will be re-elected yet that is possible. I for one will not fight against that result yet feel that Obama’s thugs will fight against his defeat and I would resist that aggression.

What I’m trying to say is that an Obama victory this fall is in fact a possibility even though that would seem to be a totally irrational result in a fair and open contest.

I would have hoped that my new grandson would inherit an America like the one I inherited, that’s still possible only if Americans decide they want to keep our Constitution as the premier charter of our country.

Someone said, many years ago, that our country is a republic if we choose to keep it. And, that democracies last until the people realize that they can vote themselves other people’s money.

I guess Kloppenburg really, really, really didn’t want to be another one of those “unelected” higher court judges that Obama has a big problem with.

(Someone tell me. I thought that most judges were elected before they are ever appointed to a higher court?)

    That’s funny, Sally
    I’m surprised she didn’t just demand to be judge and show up in court. She sounds so unhinged she probably doesn’t even know where she is.
    How do these kinds of people get ahead in life? Anyone?

    Yes, most judges have held elected office at one time in their careers.

    But, sometimes, you don’t.

    Sometimes, you don’t even have to ever been a judge to reach the pinnacle of your profession.

    Kagan came to Harvard Law School as a visiting professor in 1999 and became Professor of Law in 2001. While on the faculty, Kagan taught administrative law, constitutional law, civil procedure, and seminars on issues involving the separation of powers. She was appointed Dean of the Law School in 2003.

    Kagan was appointed solicitor general of the United States in March of 2009, and appointed Supreme Court Juctice the following year.”

      And if I’m correct in assuming that as Solicitor General, she played an advisory role with regards to the “affordable health care law,” why didn’t she recuse herself from this case?

      Oh wait, the anointed one must be served regardless of legality…

Over at Hot Air, conservative Tina Korbe has a post up:

Law school refuses to hire professor who embraces politics the rest of the faculty “despises”

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/04/06/law-school-refuses-to-hire-professor-who-embraces-politics-the-rest-of-the-faculty-despises/

She writes…

While I sympathize with Wagner’s plight and respect her decision to sue the school (especially because the school purports to be committed to fair hiring practices), I’m more generally against the forced imposition of diversity than I am in favor of her lawsuit. Freedom of association, anyone?

WTF?

Now, I had always considered myself as a conservative. Why?
Because the principles that are attributed to conservatism I also share.

If that statement by Korbe is conservative, then I’m off the reservation.

Maybe I should seek counsel with Ann Coulter, so she can clarify for me what is, and what is not, conservative.

    From Peter Wood’s book, “Diversity, The Invention of a Concept” comes this point:

    In his Letter From Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King offered a striking image of human imagery. He wrote:

    Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

    Page forward to January 2002 and from the mouth of babes – in this case a seventh-grader’s winning essay for Martin Luther King Day entitled “A Single Garment of Destiny,” comes a new interpretation:

    It is unrealistic to think that our country is like a perfectly woven garment. There are many loose threads.

    Peter Wood observes that “these loose threads, presumably, are the people not fully woven into the fabric of American life: individualists, outcasts, whole groups that go their separate ways, the excluded, and the self-excluded.”

    Which brings me to wonder if conservatives are among the “whole group” or “the excluded” or perhaps “the self-excluded.”

Wisconsin Court of Appeals District IV–JoAnn Kloppenburg was unopposed for this office. I know for a fact that she did not receive 100% of the vote as at least my husband and I did not vote for her. I have nightmares that this person is a judge–however, I guess persistence pays off.

    If the unions are able to crush Walker, your nightmares are just beginning…

      Hope Change in reply to Browndog. | April 7, 2012 at 3:53 pm

      Hi Browndog — of course, that’s what the unions want to do.

      But actually, Wisconsin is awakening from the nightmare — the nightmare of unions running the schools, running the local municipalities, the mayors, the schools boards, overcharging for insurance premiums, manipulating work rules, sucking the treasuries dry. THAT was the nightmare.

      The reforms in Wisconsin are working. More and more people have seen “THE CARTEL” and “WAITING FOR SUPERMAN.” (– which I think are on netflix, for anyone who hasn’t seen them — they’re life-changing, IMO.) A new resolve is being born, to get out from under the corrupt influence of the unions.

      From across the nation, of course unions are pouring money, activists, “enforcers” and other resources into Wisconsin because ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY, they want to run our schools, our states, our municipalities. BUT ALSO, from across the nation, people are supporting Scott Walker.

      Because as everyone knows, it’s not just Wisconsin. As Newt said at the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Forum, if Scott Walker wins in June, it will change behavior across this country.

      Because of Scott Walker and the courageous Republicans in the State Legislature, Wisconsin is beginning a Renaissance. Scott Walker saved Wisconsin. Increasingly, people know that. Scott Walker is likely to win.
