Dear Wisconsin conservative bloggers,
Believe it or not, social programs like funding school breakfasts for underprivileged kids can be implemented or (gasp!) receive increased funding without “RAISING TAXES!!@#$!” which combined with “SPENDING TAXES!!@#!@” seems to be the common and predictably overblown reaction to most, if not all, of the proposals in the Governor’s State of the State address by you and your associated media outlets.
I realize it’s fun for you to get all worked up on your weblogs about words like “spending”, especially when the primary beneficiaries of the “spending” or “tax cuts” are minorities and the underprivileged, not the wealthiest citizens or large corporations that you’d prefer be on the receiving end of those two (suddenly) nasty phrases.
It’s easy to toss around the faux rage after all!
And besides, if we’re going to “spending” our “taxes” on anything in this Country, it should be on Olympic size swimming pools for Iraqi Government VIPs, not on making sure Wisconsin kids don’t have empty stomachs when they start school! Don’t worry though, because in two shakes of an elephants tail, your short attention span will have moved on to more important issues like digging into the personal lives of people and “outing” them on your weblogs for saying stupid and regrettable things to members of the U.S. military. You are the true vigilante defenders of justice!
In closing, just remember two things:
1.) Your party had control of the State legislature (not to mention the entire Federal Government) until this year when voters overwhelmingly choose Democratic candidates, so maybe they should have done something about what you call “spending” problems instead of continuously try to push fringe issues like being able to carry a concealed handgun and,
2.) government can spend money on social programs like school breakfasts and not only balance a budget while doing it, but actually produce a surplus. RE: “The 90′s”.
p.s. Please keep doing your best to seduce Sheriff Clarke into thinking he should run for Milwaukee Mayor next year.
