I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Before you read this, I dedicate this MJS article to a lost friend who told me “No way will Walker win again and if the people knew about Act 10 he never would have won!” He also told me his wife would quit her public sector job and go work in the private sector. Well a quick look at the state public sector payroll and she is still on it. We also didn’t see the mast exodus of public sector workers either.
State workers get richer benefits than national average
Some of the Richest Retirees are "Public Pension Millionaires"
Is Bruce Rauner Scott Walker 2.0 For Illinois Unions?
Illinois think-tank wishing their state had followed Wisconsin's lead.
A Racine teacher who was given a congressional award refuses to accept it from US Rep. Paul Ryan because he doesn't like Ryan's politics.
If Wisconsin’s Pension System is "fully funded", how come our unfunded pension liability is 1.9% of our GDP?
WI government employees make more in real wages and in wages and benefits combined than private sector workers
So tell me how much better Illinois is doing raising taxes instead of real reforms like Wisconsin decided to do!
“The Private Sector is doing fine…” and “If You’ve Got a Business, You Didn’t Build That! Somebody else made that happen…”
Well another one of my X-Friend’s predictions isn’t coming true. I think he actually will be mad that it isn’t coming true. I think that is one part of the reason he severed our friendship and burned the bridge since he was so wrong on things that he couldn’t justify things anymore. Burn the bridge, move on and think you were right!
Big labor's contribution to Barrett during the recall? $23 million. Add that to his declared $6 million. That’s $29 Million
I’m not the kind of guy to sugarcoat things and as you’ve seen, that sometimes gets me in trouble, but I’ll be brutally honest here.
Here is the email that people are a buzz about because it speaks volumes of truth about the recall, liberals, and the Public Union Party.
Let’s remember this recall started with Walker winning the election in 2010 and NOT with Act 10. Act 10 just got the rank and file Public Sector Workers to fall in line with the union bosses wishes.
As we sit here waiting for this recall election to be over (I want to remind everyone this started not because of Act 10, but because Walker won in 2010) let’s look at some of the sky is falling items.
"Walker's Democratic challenger, Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, acknowledged this morning that the collective bargaining issue was the "flame that started this" recall election, but Barrett couldn't point to a single public school that has been harmed by Walker's reforms."
Michael Reagan & Wisconsinites Speak Out For Scott Walker
So Backwards Barrett claims Walker and his people are cooking the books on the job numbers, but Backwards Barrett, what about the MPD crime numbers?
As Governor Scott Walker and Governor Chris Christie show you will not be loved or liked all that much to make the hard tough right choices. I just wish my former friend and others would see that. All they see is the little bit of personal money they are losing and missing the big picture that this is good for all of Wisconsin. It is sad that they are like that.
So you will know how the Obama Administration feels the election is going if Obama himself doesn’t come to Wisconsin before June 5th.
Cudahy Alderman Jason Litkowiec files complaint with city over taxpayer's Pro-Walker Sign!
So I hope my former friend who just kept telling me how Wisconsin’s public worker pension costs and that it is fully funded listens to this.
MJS - We recommend Walker; his removal isn't justified
Well, my former friend told me while he was still speaking to me that his wife has had a pay freeze for a few years because she didn’t have a new contract!
So an Extremist, Leftist, Pro-Public Union blogger asked this question and I didn’t change any words or alter it, this is his quote unquote words!
Lowers taxes, the sky didn’t fall, the schools are in better shape (except the ones NOT using Act 10) and taxpayers are back in control!
So a former friend told me that Scott Walker is NOT a conservative and Gov. Walker should have done it like Gov. Christie.
Here is a snippet from a Wall Street Journal Article.
Barrett & Falk Won't Say How They Would Have Balanced WI Budget
So is it a good or bad thing for Elected Officials of Nonpolitical races to sign to Walker recall like Cudahy School Board Member Joan Haske, Milwaukee County Supervisor Patricia Jursik Or Cudahy Alderman Jason Litkowiec did?
Not a Surprise: Pro-Falk group “Wisconsin for Falk” being led by out-of-state operatives
AFSCME would NEVER lie to its members I have been told!! I was told that AFSCME is the GOOD public sector union. Hey former friend and wife, still want to cling to that?
WEAC knows Act 10 is working and they don’t want you to know about it which is why they will not release their own State District Survey Study!
Corrections workers rally for their "right" to cheat the system on overtime
So the PUP and those affected by Act 10 tell me that if it happened to me, I would do exactly what they are doing!
Recently I was told by a Walker Recaller that I need to stop looking at the 2010 election as a WIN for republicans as there are NO winners in politics!
Take notice the money savings, how the school board and teachers are, notice how the union and the school board are, notice how the school board got answers from WEA Trust and notice how the sides reacted to changing health insurance companies.
Figures and numbers don't lie, goes the adage, but liars can figure.

So why would anyone want to stop looking for fictitious signatures and fake names?

Public employee union interviews five Dems for Walker recall
Public State Workers and public workers are not the same thing.
“The public sector should not enjoy special treatment at the expense of those in the private sector. After all, the tax dollars of hardworking families across the country finance the compensation of government workers. Restraining the explosive growth of the federal bureaucracy is critical to spur private sector economic growth and job creation.” – Paul Ryan
The reason for the state government is NOT to provide JOBS, it is to provide services that otherwise in the private sector could not be provided! If it can be done in the private sector, there is NO reason to have it being done by the public sector!
This post is going to start a series of hypotheticals ‘What Ifs” posts and will contain a disclaimer at the end. In no way is this attempting to setup a strawman, this is just hypotheticals to bring about thought and maybe discussions.
Why Would Someone Refuse a Christmas Card? Why not just throw it out?
In the Mind of the PUP, Liberals, and those Suffering from Walker Derangement Syndrome –
Is the GAB going to turn over the circulators names to the DA to prosecute them?
You've all heard about the fact that the GAB (Government Accountability Bd) is NOT going to do their job and that many signatures will be either forged or phony (i.e.Mickey Mouse, Adolph Hitler etc.) and the GAB will honor those as long as there is a valid address listed.
Please note – I took this right out of the comments section and did format it, correct spelling and grammatical errors, otherwise it is exactly how it was that 42BDResident left.
See the eye-popping list!
John Koszarek is a public school teacher in Slinger. He teaches social studies at Slinger High School. He also identifies himself as a negotiator for the teachers' union.
I was told by a few liberal friends of mine that Governor Walker and the Republicans are not serious about job creation in Wisconsin since they are passing laws and budgets that do many other things.
Leaders of the state's largest teachers union and the state employees union met earlier this week with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to encourage him to stay out of a possible recall election next year against Gov. Scott Walker.
Some things below that we are not reading in the Journal or Madison papers.
Brookfield Girl, 16, Signs Recall Petition; Mom Gets It Crossed Out
Recallistas prepare to annoy badger fans in Pasadena, why?
Time for Scott Walker to Start Swinging
So why oh why are the recall groups so worried about a judge telling the GAB it has to look for fraud and throw-out Mickey Mouse? That is what the GAB should be doing!
I get so tired of hearing those PUP and people that suffer from Walker Derangement Syndrome just say that Governor Walker (typically they don’t use his title and name – they name call some vial thing) that Walker did the wrong thing and the wrong way to fix the budget shortfall (they also forget to mention that Governor Doyle gave us the budget deficit).
These should have been taken care of earlier if the Republicans really had any stones, but THEY FEARED the Liberal backlash it would cause. Just like Voter ID and CCW have.
For the Governors Journal:
VERIFY THE RECALL has added a "no sign" registration page. You can enter your name to have it cross checked automatically and they will contact you if it does show up!
One of the jobs that the supporters of Scott Walker will do is type up all of the signatures on the recall petitions and will allow you to search it.
1. DO NOT sign the petition if you disagree with these recalls of the Governor, Lt. Governor, and/or the Senator you are being asked to sign for. Please do not fall to peer- pressure to sign or sign the petition just to get the people to go away!
MACIVER proves Politifact wrong: unions began recall efforts against Scott Walker before he was even inaugurated.
Man Tells 12 News He Has Signed 80 Petitions To Recall Gov. Walker
Simply put to use a football analogy, to use up the clock! Time is precious and of the essence and it is finite. We will call it “The Walker camp will have to be in the hurry up offense down by 10 points with maybe one time out (extension if the GAB and judges in Madison allow it)”
If the GAB isn’t going to catch fraudulent signatures what are we paying $640,000 for and what good is the GAB?
Getting the 540,000 signatures just based on how the 2010 election went should be easy and no need to resort to fraud. They should be able to get: 1,004,303 signatures
Expectedly, AFSCME Endorses Obama, Vows To Spend $100 Million On 2012 Election

Doreen from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections talking to Vicki about all the Union Misinformation and all of the workers spreading that info. Very good!!! Please listen to it on the podcast below.
Governor Walker Sets the Record Straight on Senate Democrat Offers (1/2)
Government Union AFSCME Workers, did you know your union has connections to the socialists? Are you okay with that and if not, are you going to stand up against it or just stay silent and do nothing and let them use your money?
Collective Bargaining is not a right, it is a privilege granted by State Law passed in 1959.

There is a refinancing deadline of Friday February 25th (NOT the June 30th deadline) to allow time to refinance state bonds in order to save the money. If not serious cuts will additionally be made.
