Mitt Romney likes to rat out his weed-smoking neighbors to the cops. (He also likes to imitate police officers, apparently.)

Fashion designers open up their pocketbook for Obama to the extent it’s apparently a news story.

War on women? Neo-Nazi Greek politicians literally slap them on live television.

Yep, the earth is still well on its way to burning.

Af-Pak to Africa? Jihadists find a new landing spot.

  • “I don’t remember what I said on that particular occasion. But whatever I said, I stand by it now.” — Mitt Romney.

    In truth, how can Romney be expected to remember anything he’s said in the past? As a serial liar, Romney makes up his stand on issues to suit his audience of the day. Since he holds no firm views on much of anything, he can easily shift gears as needed. Fortunately for Romney, his core constitutency is unconcerned about the truth so he’ll be just fine.

      And, for some reason, there are plenty of Americans -with allegedly working brains- who BELIEVE this liar every single time.

    Letter to the Left

    To all leftists, occupiers, unionistas and malcontents,

    Thank you! What an election! We couldn’t have done it without you. Without your tantrums, outbursts and boorish behavior we might have stayed home for this election. Without your filthy, pot smoking hemp -headed minions occupying and violating the Capitol we might have been complacent. Without your obnoxious protests, boycotts and other actions from your union playbook, we might have sat this one out.

    But you couldn’t hold back. You couldn’t restrain yourselves and behave like adults. You couldn’t accept the 2010 election results. We sat and watched as you erupted in a juvenile hissy fit that embarrassed Wisconsin. The spectacle you created is what motivated us. And thanks to your ill-mannered behavior, we won. We turned out. Big time! And now we are organized and energized. Committed. “All in”. And we aren’t going away. We now have our own organizations (no dues required), an army of volunteers and the means to communicate. And countless new sources of funding, including a donor base from all 50 states. And we have “iverifythe recall” to ferret out your infiltrators in our future local elections.

    So thank you Mike Tate, Graeme Zielinski, Fred “Loonie” Levenhagen, Ismael Ozanne, Maryanne Sumi, Noble Ray, Charles Tubbs, Joanne Kloppenberg, Segway Boy, John Chisolm, public employee union members, UW TA’s, WEAC, SEIU, MTI, AFSCME Council 24 in Union Grove and WI prison guards,. Thanks for the death threats, the intimidation, the bullying, belligerence, thuggery and goonish behavior. The lack of ethics and the failure to enforce rules and laws. Thank you for putting your selfish, greedy motives on display for all taxpayers to see.

    Your antics might have made you feel good but they didn’t make you look good. They sickened the rest of us.

    Thank you Shirley Abrahamson and Ann Walsh Bradley. Your petty politics woke us up. Thanks you Miles Kristan for dumping the beer on Robin Vos’s head. Thank you University doctors for writing the phony excuses; Madison teachers for calling in sick or dragging your students to the protests without permission. Thank you Katherine Windels for making death threats against the Governor. The noontime capitol singers who taunted Sheboygan high school students. Thank you WEA Trust for raping Wisconsin taxpayers. Thank you Gwen Moore for your embarrassing minstrel show. And thanks all of you for harassing the Walker family at their private home.

    You have all been exposed. Your tactics have been rejected. Your bad behavior has been forever captured on You Tube.

    Thank you Peter Barca and fellow Assembly members for donning your foolish orange T-shirts and screaming “shame” at legislators just doing their jobs.

    Thank you Mark Miller and all 14 senators for fleeing the state and making fools of yourselves in the process. Illinois need a few more village idiots. Thanks for showing us what democracy doesn’t look like.

    And Mayor Barrett. How grateful we are that you chose one low road after another in your issue-less campaign against the Governor. This was your strike three. You are out. Take a seat on the bench and stay there. I have a hunch this was your final at-bat.

    All of you helped turn Wisconsin permanently red. Your Governor, Scott Walker, will not just complete his first term, he is all but assured as many future terms as he seeks. He will be your governor for a long, long time. Get used to it. And his national “rock star”
    status just might lead him to be your President some day. Just think, it couldn’t have happened without you! So to all of you blue fisters, thank you from the bottom of my happy, red heart.

    Sincerely,

    A Wisconsin taxpayer

      OBozo you weird creep, you are even out voted here. Wait until November 7th if you think you are in the majority.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Ex… you are a racist and a bigot!

        • ExPAVIC

          Haha

          Obozo you are a screwed up creep you American Taliban Party Republican.

          Wait until November 7th after the billionaire scare monger has been flushed down the drain.

          Vote for Mittens? The American public isn’t that dumb no matter how much money the Koch Brothers donate.

          People DON’T LIKE RoMoney’s arrogant, elitist, sexist butt.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ex… you are a racist and a bigot!

          • ExPAVIC

            OBozo is that all you can come up with you deranged American Taliban creep. Just how many people do you think you can fool between now and November 6th when Mittens is put out to pasture?

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ex… you are a racist and a bigot!

          • ExPAVIC

            Obozo

            You are so dumb, but you entertain me in the sense that you are so typical of the American Taliban Republicans.
            This shortcoming will be demonstrated in the upcoming debates where a sitting President which kick the butt of the challenger up around his shoulder blades.

            Like the billionaire Mormon really cares about the likes of you

          • Your inane remarks are that of a petulant bully, in a grade school playground, hurling insults through your blubbering mouth. Not a pretty picture.

    • awakenaustin

      I can identify the writer. Up all night were you? It is your style and the village idiots seals the deal. What’s my prize?

      Love and kisses, sweetie!

      • ObozoMustGo

        awake… if you are female, I will take your love and kisses. Thanks! 🙂 [blushing]

        But it wasnt me. Really. I’m not from WI. A friend emailed it to me and I thought it would be nice to share with the lefty group at The Memo. If I knew who wrote it, I would attribute it, for sure.

        Have a nice weekend, awake! 🙂

    • EdC

      Actually you did it spending 7.5 times as much on lies to the media, then we spent telling the truth.. Now the Wisconsin economy is going to go in the crapper, but even better then that all the NRA deer hunters are going to have rude awakeing, when new year their deer tags wil cost $750.00 instead of $24.00. Walker’s deer hunter czar, is the man from Texas that has put the deer hunting there on private ranges only and you pay to owner of the range. If we would have stepped out it would have been easier for you. and you are right wisconsin will be perminately in the red, Ink that is.

    • joyscarbo

      Get it right….the last SIGNIFICANT gun-related legislation was put forth by your republican buddy and his administration, RONALD REAGAN!!!! The Brady Bill is LEGENDARY.
      Guns are legally owned by ANYONE who wants one. There aren’t really any restrictions on owning a gun. Doesn’t matter whether they’re mentally insane or not. My dad wanted to sell his rifle. A gun enthusist that I worked with offered a decent price and he bought it. No legal paperwork, no waiting period…nothing.
      I have never shot a gun in my life and have no plans to. Those who own a gun are four and half times more likely to be shot…or shot and killed by a gun than those who aren’t gun owners. I’ll take my chances…thanks.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Hi Joy! We haven’t chatted in a while. I hope you are well. I have been very busy in the past week. Hopefully, getting busier.

        I’m not exactly sure where your “gun rant” came from in response to my post of that letter. If you dont like guns, dont have one. Stick to your guns! 🙂 LOL

        Regarding your “statistic” about gun owners being 4.5x more likely to be shot… I can tell you this… nearly 100% of ALL non-gun owners that are threatened by a gun holder lose their battle. And what you NEVER hear in the media are the literally millions of incidents each year where a lawful gun owner defends themselves successfully against another person who intends to harm them. That doesn’t make for good news in the leftist media, however. Here are some of the facts:

        * Guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year — or about 6,850 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.
        * Of the 2.5 million times citizens use their guns to defend themselves every year, the overwhelming majority merely brandish their gun or fire a warning shot to scare off their attackers. Less than 8% of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker.
        * As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse.
        * Even anti-gun Clinton researchers concede that guns are used 1.5 million times annually for self-defense. According to the Clinton Justice Department, there are as many as 1.5 million cases of self-defense every year. The National Institute of Justice published this figure in 1997 as part of “Guns in America” — a study which was authored by noted anti-gun criminologists Philip Cook and Jens Ludwig.
        * Armed citizens kill more crooks than do the police. Citizens shoot and kill at least twice as many criminals as police do every year (1,527 to 606). And readers of Newsweek learned that “only 2 percent of civilian shootings involved an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal. The ‘error rate’ for the police, however, was 11 percent, more than five times as high.”
        * Handguns are the weapon of choice for self-defense. Citizens use handguns to protect themselves over 1.9 million times a year. Many of these self-defense handguns could be labeled as “Saturday Night Specials.”

        Like I said, Joy, if you dont want to own a gun, dont own a gun. Stick to your guns on this principle!

        Have a nice weekend, Joy!

        • joyscarbo

          I’m having a fairly good weekend, Bozo, thanks for asking! Celebrating our second grandaughter’s birth on 6/6/12. She’s here and she’s healthy…can’t ask for more than that!

          Anyhooo…
          What I was responding to was a post you made about Obama enacting tighter gun laws. No such thing has occured. I just wanted to point out that the last “real” legislation passed- The Brady Bill- was put forth by the Reagan administration. I just tire of such paranoid rants from those who own guns- always worried that they may get their precious arms take away. And media doesn’t propose to have people’s guns taken away. Owning fire arms isn’t a left, right or center issue. It’s a personal one. I know people on all sides of the political spectrum who do own weapons and those who choose not to own weapons. I just happen to be a person who chooses not to own a gun. And unlike the NRA fanatics and maniacs, the fact that I don’t want to be armed doesn’t mean I care less for my family or am, somehow, less intellegent or less a patriot. I don’t belong to a militia, I’ve never served in the military and I don’t like violence. That doesn’t mean I want to take anyone’s weapons away. I take very seriously the fact that once a bullet leaves it’s chamber, there is no calling it back.

          I can’t live in fear of everything and everyone. Owning a gun doesn’t make you safer. In cases of domestic violence, you’re many times more likely to be injured or killed if a gun is in the home. Your child is more likely to be injured or killed by the gun that is kept for “protection.” In the area of the country with the highest gun ownership- the south- the murder rate is also higher than any other region of this nation. Our country is one of the world leaders in gun-related deaths.

          You keep your guns. I’d never try to take them from you. I’ll take my chances.

          Have a great weekend, Bozo! I hope that you and your family are all well!
          -Joy

          • ObozoMustGo

            Hi Joy. Actually I think you may have mistaken another’s post for mine. No biggie! It’s always ice to chat with you!

            Congrats on your granddaughter! God bless her and your family!

            Have a great day!

  • ExPAVIC

    What?

    Wisconsin taxpayer sure puts forth much effort to express what the rest of the public considers as a minor effort in a minor argument in a less that minor local. Nowhere has this writer ever seen “as Wisconsin goes so goes the nation.” Note that the exit poll conducted still favored Obama over the Mormon billionaire whack job Mittens by SEVEN percentage points.

    It has long been known, and for what reason escapes the developed critical mind, that farmers gravitate to the American Taliban Party Republicans. So let those who favor the rich, old, sexist, elitist, overly religious, anti-union, bigoted white guys vote for what little that party has to offer. Of course anything above Sara Palin would be an improvement, but so would a pile of doggie do-do.

    • 13observer

      The problem with all that is “Fast & Furious” whistleblowers from the ATF and others telling the story about Eric Holder and the conspiracy to disarm American Citizens. I don’t want a Romney elected but if you believe the exit polls at face value, we are in trouble. American gun owners and the NRA who lobbys for them are pushing the “fast & Furious” issue to no limits and thus implicating President Obama in the conspiracy. We need to get the “gun issue” of the table for Democrats or suffer a diminished capacity.

      • ExPAVIC

        Let’s Clear This Matter Up

        Since the Democrat Party with its stance leaning towards controlling the ownership of certain firearms attributed to state and national election losses in 2000, 2004, and 2006, the question of gun control has been totally removed form that party’s platform.

        When was the last gun control utterance been heard from a Democrat at any level since 2008? In fact, Obama was instrumental in three significant ruling regarding the ownership and use of guns. One ruling signed by Obama was the right to carry a loaded gun while in the confines of a national park. Two other rulings which were ramrodded by him include the rights of District of Columbia and city of Chicago citizens to own firearms for their own protection.

        The NRA in particular has avoided these instances of fact for the simple reason that for them the loss of any such gun ownership causes means a smaller pond upon which for them to float their boats. St Pierre (not sure of the spelling) NRA president has always been a thick head when trying to protect the extent of his influence and importance. Personal interactions with him has left this writer with the impression that there are certain rusted firearms with more brains than he is in possession of.

    Mitt Romney sounds like a clown who is being put out by the circus due to stale and tasteless acts. So if this man gets elected in November America beware .
