A Vote for Barrett is an Act of Selfishness

Will you enter the voting booth on June 5th for selfish reasons?

Are you a Barrett supporter?  Do you find that balanced budgets stir rage within your normally sensible existence?  Has lowered unemployment in Wisconsin caused you to bang your head against the wall?  When business groups say they favor a state run by conservative policies rather then one run by liberal policy, do you bury your head in the sand?  Does making public employees contribute toward their own benefits cause your skin to crawl?  If you answered yes to the questions above, you might be suffering from Selfish Voters for Barrett syndrome.

SVB is an affliction in which a liberal voter acts on the personal desire to have a Democrat in office rather than what is best for the state.  It causes a disconnect between facts and logic resulting in an inability to make a rational decision.    This disconnect leads to fits of anger and the urge to march around buildings banging a drum.  In extreme cases a person may become drawn to animal scat as a form of entertainment.

Most people who suffer SVB no longer care about the state and its ability to succeed; rather, they are committed to the single purpose of returning a Democrat to power.  They are not concerned with the track record of the Democrats, nor are they concerned with positive course Wisconsin has been on since the election of Scott Walker.  Instead, this is a single minded self serving effort to win the seat for their candidate.  A motive not based in what is best for their fellow citizens, but a motive based on what best fills their own needs.

SVB is highly contagious and people who are suffering with these ailments should be isolated and monitored for possible disturbing outbursts.  In one instance a teacher having been entranced by the banging of a drum was only capable of repeating the phrase ‘FOX lies’ over and over.  Lucky for him, they had doctors on site providing written excuses that people could submit to their employers until they regained most cognitive abilities. 

There is little that can be done to save people with SVB.  Most of them have become so close minded that no amount of truth can break the grip that SVB has on their psyche.  The selfishness associated with SVB has become addictive.  Like junkies, these voters received their liberal fix with every policy that Doyle and Democrats enacted.  Having been high on over spending and excessive legislation for eight years; the past year and half of conservative legislation has forced withdrawals in Democratic voters jonesing for liberalism.  They are willing to steal the state and sell it to the unions for a quick hit of progressivism, no matter how damaging it is.

If you want to help stop the spread of SVB, here are some precautions you can use to protect yourself and your family.

1)      Stay educated on the state of Wisconsin.  Ignorance is the leading factor to contraction of SVB.

2)      Vote for Scott Walker and the positive future of Wisconsin on June 5th.

3)      Go to iverifytherecall.com and look for family members or friends.  The people listed here are in serious trouble and need our love and support to get through the next 2 weeks.

4)      Lastly, forward this blog and tell others of the damaging affects of selfishness.  Only by placing the needs of the state above our own, can we break the hold of political greed that has plagued this state.

Tosa720 - wow, you hit the college drop out and double down on intellectual - and his supporters are the same caliber? As a woman, you should be ashamed of yourself. Um, was Steve Jobs a college drop out? Bill Gates? You? I suspect you have some unresolved educational guilt and no aspirations. Weak comment 720, very weak.

That would be Bren rocking back forth to the slow motion tune of ALEC.

@j.b. , what is fair about public employees or any other working person having to py higher health care rates when several so called job creators or buisiness owners won't even buy health insurance? then, when they get sick, they side step the bill and let the rest of us pay for it! this is why there is a need for national health care! even if i was self employed, i would still buy some catostrophic coverage of some type! but unfortunately, i know quite a few entrepenuers that do not have any coverage! who pays for that? the people who have coverage! that's who! that is why insurance premiums are up! but yet, those same people have new vehicles, big houses, and plenty of vacation money because the rest of us are footing the bill when they file bankruptcy on their medical bills, but their company owns their property and vehicles, so those don't get touched in the bakruptcy and the rest of us pay for their defaults!

@ craig, you have told me before that you yourself are disabled and living off of disability! how dare you attack those who work and pay your bills! your a hypocryte and an idiot! so stfu!

@John Wilson...When I made my first post in this string,that you started: ""@ J. B. Schmidt....You stated: "The state never set equal pay......."", it was clear that the scope of the discussion was 'Employment Law' not 'contract law'. You will further note that my posts make reference to employment or equal pay. Your last post, with the link to the changes in punitive damages in 'contracts law', indicates that you do not understand that only specific 'employment laws' apply to 'employment';the law changes that you cited,on the 'statutory limit to punitive damages', are not germane to the discussion on 'equal pay' laws. The rules for awarding punitive damages in business litigation are distinctly separate from the employment discrimination laws. You should further note that I didn't take a side or express my personal opinion regarding the Wisconsin’s Fair Employment Act ;I asked questions or stated facts and you attacked, without any provocation on my part. Generally, I dis-engage from those that spend their time on the attack or out doing Joseph Goebbels in beating the same dead horse. I don't post/read blogs on patch to convince others why my opinion is right and theirs is wrong. I'm trying to find the chink in the armor that protects my own opinions.

LOL...wow...extremely clueless.
jt May 25, 2012 at 05:18 AM
really craig? prove me wrong! you know that what i just said is true. c'mon craig, let's hear an intelligent retort from you for a change, not just name calling or fox news soundbites!

bella you seem to have an anger problem.... maybe you should get some help for that....
Cynthia May 30, 2012 at 05:10 PM
bella did President Bush sign it? NOPE. Who was the majority of President Bush's congress at the time? So easy to try to point blame.... but you fail. Ya, amazing the integrity and leadership one shows to ask for an investigation of his own administration... unlike barrett and other dems that hide and deny.... Seems barrett will be in his own john doe soon, not 1, not 2, but possibly 3........... LOL

Also eliminating the first in last out will cause the Teacher of the Year not to be laid off again which happened in MPS in 2010. Also, because of Act 10... The Neenah Board of Education wants to attract “top talent” to its district, so it recently raised the base pay for its teachers by 18 percent.
Cynthia May 30, 2012 at 05:14 PM
You are ok with malhon mitchell never attending college?
Cynthia May 30, 2012 at 05:16 PM
Only a fool would vote for barrett with no plan, no accomplishments in his political career, and a poop dumper.............
Cynthia May 30, 2012 at 05:17 PM
What campaign promises did barrett ever complete? How many did he break?
Cynthia May 30, 2012 at 05:20 PM
How do environmental special interest groups endorse him when 2 of his beaches are in the top 10 polluted beaches in the Nation and he has dumped over 10 Billion of raw sewage into Lake Michigan... a campaign promise he made in 2004... 8 years later there is still raw sewage being dumped....
Sean Lee June 01, 2012 at 03:00 PM
Is it ironic that this blog demands people become less ignorant and more educated, but this blog has very little to no real information in it? It seems this is just a humor filled post that name calls democrats. You accuse democrats of being selfish but provide very little evidence. Blindly following your words would be as dumb as voting for Barett without being informed.
Craig June 01, 2012 at 03:23 PM
jt: Not to be mean but you have a $10/hr job. If you don't like how much you are being paid to lean on a broom, go somewhere else to work. Don't assume you know about people's finances, and don't assume that those who share that info are truthful with you. Regarding your comments about ObamaCare- you do know that ObamaCare still includes the evil insurance companies and make the US government the premium payer? You allow the Government to buy $700 toilet seats, imagine what they will end up paying in insurance premiums. It is a doomed system, and will fail. It may take a decade, but it is unsustainable. The insurer, being the middle man, will keep increasing his cut at our expense and we will not notice it until it is too late.

Leave it to J.B. Schmidt to sociopathically try to completely twist everything 180 degrees, but so unsuccessfully. It takes tremendous skill to flip a belief on its head, that being that it is the Republicans that are the selfish minority, always lobbying for lower taxes (on themselves only) and corporate welfare.
Alfred June 01, 2012 at 03:29 PM
Get a job Dirk. Republicans, working hard so you don't have to.

@Craig...The problem with healthcare, whether privately funded or government funded doesn't address the real issue, double digit inflation of medical care, big pharma and medical device manufacturers. Healthcare displays all of the negative characteristics of an out of control monopoly. Even shopping around for lower fees and costs leads to nothing. There is price fixing that no self regulating industry will or can effectively control. The last arbitrator available is the Federal Government. If we are going to involve the government, then let's not mess around and go to a government run healthcare service. It will be cheaper, more efficient and more beneficial in the long run.
Craig June 01, 2012 at 04:07 PM
@Lyle: That is exactly my point. I am not in favor of NHC, but a true NHC would be better than ObamaCare for the exact reasons you listed. Under ObamaCare, the medical costs will continue to rise without anyone noticing. With a true NHC system, you would have big pharma and medical device manufacturers, along with Dr's, clinics, and hospitals all under the control or employ of the Government. Correct?
Lyle Ruble June 01, 2012 at 04:13 PM
@Craig...You are correct.
Alfred June 01, 2012 at 04:15 PM
healthcare would be like any other product if the government would simply exit it. Anytime the goverment becomes the biggest customer of a product, prices skyrocket. Pick any product where government is the biggest consumer and you see the same thing. Government is the problem, not the insurance companies,not the hospitals, not big pharma...gubmint.
Lyle Ruble June 01, 2012 at 04:50 PM
@Alfred...Since the government can't manage to control costs where it is the chief consumer, does that include the U.S. military?
Alfred June 01, 2012 at 04:54 PM
Lyle of course, there is mucho price inflation in all military purchases, remember the $100 toliet seats?
Lyle Ruble June 01, 2012 at 05:01 PM
@Alfred...What do you purpose as an alternative; a free market military?
James R Hoffa June 01, 2012 at 05:30 PM
That's very nice of you Steve! ;-)
James R Hoffa June 01, 2012 at 05:32 PM
WOW - How did I miss this blog entry? GREAT piece J.B. - LOVE IT!!!
Dirk Gutzmiller June 01, 2012 at 08:36 PM
