I Didn't Know My Neighbors Were Into S&M

Over the last year we have all been forced into a sadomasochist-type relationship with our elected officials, public servants, neighbors and our own spouses (okay, that one can be fun sometimes).

Even though the FBI is hot on Walker's tail and has arrested just about every single member of his inner circle from his County Executive days . . . and even though we are losing jobs left and right in the state and have no shot in hell at reaching Walker's goal of 250,000 jobs in four years, my neighbors still have their damn "Stand With Walker" yard signs up.

These people who still hold Walker in such high regards musts be the masochists in the relationship, while Walker, who insists upon pitting parents against teachers, congregants against church leaders and neighbors against neighbors, is surely the sadist - the one who enjoys inflicting the pain upon others. (Tonette, I had no idea you guys were so kinky! Where do you and Scotty hide the whips and chains from your boys? In the closet - the long, dark, ugly closet with all of those skeletons that are just starting to be found is my best guess).

But it is not just rampant Walker supporters caught up in this destructive relationship - it is all of us. Innocent bystanders like students, poor people and the elderly (often poor themselves) are victims of this S&M style of governing that the GOP and the Tea Party have forced upon the state because the far right loves inflicting pain by denying certain people basic rights like health care and affordable education - and the right to vote.

Even head sadist, Scotty Walker himself has been victimized by his own aggressive and vindictive agenda. The latest poll from the Public Policy Survey shows that Scotty would likely lose a recall election to numerous Democratic candidates:

  • Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett leads Walker 49 percent to 46 percent (not even running yet)
  • Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk wins against Walker 48 percent to 47 percent;
  • U.S. Rep. Ron Kind of La Crosse comes out ahead of Walker 46 percent to 45 percent;
  • And Russ Feingold, who is not even running, beats Walker by 7 points.

It should also be noted that only Falk is actively campaigning for Governor - just wait until the Dems start to advertise and push full force.

But Scotty seems to indulge in the weakened and cracked state of the state. He seems to enjoy having half of the state HATE the other half of the state. He seems to thoroughly enjoying forcing all of us into a destructive and painful sadomasochist-style relationship.

So, a few questions to my S&M-loving neighbors?

Will you still "Stand With Walker" when he is sitting in County Jail and facing felony charges? Will you still vote for Walker during the recall election even if he cannot himself cast a ballot because he is a felon? Will you still stubbornly keep your yard sign up or will you swallow your pride, regain your sense of right and wrong and throw that blue eyesore in the dumpster next to the Walker "Brown Bag" that is oozing old stinky dog shit?

And if you think Scotty is innocent or a victim of the "left-wing propaganda machine" whatever the hell that is - think again.

Either Scotty knew nothing of the secret emailing campaign, or the ghost-internet routing system that was in place in his office, or the work being done on county time for his gubernatorial campaign - all in his office and all around him for months while he was the County Executive (making him a complete moron), or he knew what was going on and did nothing about it (which makes him a felon).

The reality is that he is probably both a moron and a criminal and it is time we end this destructive sadomasochist relationship.

See you in June for a recall!

Lyle, Remember, there's strength in numbers. Imagine everything everyone finds annoying about the elderly - now multiply that by about 50 times. The entire nation will be in a constant state of "hurry up and wait" as we clog up grocery store aisles, sidewalks and traffic with our walkers, Rascals and late model champagne colored Buicks. Not to mention the back to back funeral processions as we collectively start to drop like flies. Vengeance is ours - always.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 02:02 AM
Darn it Bob, here Lyle had me craving some Soylent Green until you came along with your talk of champagne colored Buicks, Rascals and such - thanks for ruining my appetite ;-)

@CowDung--The statement can't be libelous in legal terms because Scott Walker is a public figure.
Jrock March 09, 2012 at 02:16 AM
@Alfred--You do know your Second Amendment rights were never revoked right? Please don't shoot Cranky Al while reaching for your wallet.
Jrock March 09, 2012 at 02:18 AM
How is your girl Noelle any different?
mau March 09, 2012 at 02:20 AM
@Lyle, we may be on opposite sides of the fence politically, but I agree with you 100% here and on other issues. We may have made a lot of mistakes but we also did a lot of good. I will say there are a lot of good citizens in our children's generation too. They are the ones who aren't vocal because they are too busy working and succeeding. But one problem with their generation is they got too much too fast and now expect it and were treated as our equal rather than as our children. And now it is backfiring on us. I have no intention of going anywhere anytime soon. I have two canes and a toilet riser so I am good to go. And spending so much time at my mother-in-law's new apartment, I am getting a first hand edumacation on how to be a pain in the arse senior. Glad you mentioned those movies. I need to check Netflix if they are available so I can watch them again. The next generation will have that and Brave New World. I think we will still make it to the drive-up funeral and ashes down the drain stage.
Jrock March 09, 2012 at 02:22 AM
Don't get too excited. Even if Walker let's his cronies take the fall for their wrong doing, those folks are too close to him for Walker ever to vetted as presidential.
Lyle Ruble March 09, 2012 at 02:32 AM
I personally prefer open carry to conceal carry, much better deterrent. A 1911 colt .45 is my favorite, none of those wimpy guns for me.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 02:37 AM
@Jrock - Excuse me - how and why are you bringing Noelle into this?
Lyle Ruble March 09, 2012 at 02:49 AM
@mau...When the death panel decides it's my time I want them to transport me to the north woods and just leave me there. I'll die of exposure or starve to death and my remains will feed the local flora and fauna. Now that's the way for a tree hugger to go out.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 02:59 AM
@Lyle - Nice choice! Personally, I only own a scatter gun myself - kinda hard to conceal one of those, but not impossible.
Lyle Ruble March 09, 2012 at 03:01 AM
@Jrock...Why in the hell are you bringing up Noelle and asking JRH how she is doing? I haven't seen her on any of the blogs for several weeks now. Why would he know anyway?
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 03:02 AM
@Jrock - Just for the record, Noelle Lorraine is of the utmost class, character, and integrity and has never "suck as much off of the teats of taxpayers as possible." I hope that helps clarify the issue for you!
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 03:06 AM
@Lyle - Reportedly, wildflowers were growing where bodies were once strewn over the ground in and around Jonestown. http://www.corbisimages.com/stock-photo/rights-managed/U1983203/flowers-growing-by-jonestown-pavilion
Lyle Ruble March 09, 2012 at 03:14 AM
@JRH...A scatter-gun, I'm impressed. Remind me if we ever meet to make sure you don't have a rain coat on.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 03:19 AM
@Lyle - Actually, I think that Jrock originally addressed this to Alfred. BTW - Thanks for giving me a break ;-)
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 03:24 AM
@Lyle - I'll be sure to do that :-) I've only ever fired the gun a dozen times max, and never at anything living.
Lyle Ruble March 09, 2012 at 03:28 AM
@JRH...Probably the kool aide.
Jrock March 09, 2012 at 03:34 AM
@JRH--I was just illuminating the point that Jason's drivel is no different than Noelle's drivel, just from a different paradigm. Spades is spades my man. The second part your reply is confusing. Jason has been crushed by commenters, and he has never once stooped to the level of personal attacks that Noelle has leveled at anyone who disagrees. You can just say that you have a crush on her, and drop the class, integrity and character bit. She's a hack, just like Jason. @Lyle--I'm confused. I don't think you read to well.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 04:00 AM
@Jrock - I beg to differ. I don't recall Noelle ever bringing family into the mix the way Jason has done here. Not to mention that Noelle never desecrated a classic from a true American rock legend the way Jason has done to Tom Petty in this blog! Also, Noelle only ever got personal when it became personal against her, and she actually pointed that out if I recall correctly. Here, a majority of the attacks are aimed at Jason's ideology and actions, and not at him personally - there's a big difference with this spade my friend! I'm just surprised that you singled out Noelle when there are other conservative bloggers here on Patch that have been far more active recently than Noelle has. As to my previous statement about Ms. Lorraine - I stand by those assertions to my dying breath as well as into the afterlife!
Lib Hater March 09, 2012 at 06:42 AM
When he wins the recall and he will... I hope to God he enacts the level of revenge fitting for the crap that has been pulled. I 'd start by firing ALL teachers and make them re apply for their jobs- TO HIM
Jason Patzfahl March 09, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Sorry, I have been too busy "baking my wife cookies," driving around in my "Kia," practicing S&M with my neighbors, and scrubbing the toilets of local conservatives to respond . . . but at last, I have found the time. - If you can't take a little sarcasm get off my blog! If you are so easily offended, take your time machine back to 1951 - but by all means, keep listening to Rush (go figure huh?) And last but not least, I have every right to drag Walker's wife and kids into this since he has dragged my kids, (and all of our children) who either attend public school, drink water or live near neighbors with itchy trigger fingers, right into this big stinky cesspool of a mess we now call Wisconsin. And the sexuality and reproductive cycles and choice of contraception has been dragged into this GOP-created mess. The only time a Republican cares about someone else is when it is a woman and they are trying to seize control of her uterus. Once the GOP keeps their hands off of other people's bodies, I will keep my vindictive words to myself - until then . . . I will be posting again probably on Monday.

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 09:01 PM
So, the Hyundai turned into a Kia, and it's still running, eh? Still can't spring for something that's union built though?
Alfred March 09, 2012 at 09:16 PM
Jason gets more creepy every time he opens his filthy mouth...God bless anyone who lives next to this cretin.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 09:21 PM
@CowDung - Loving the Master Yoda!
CowDung March 09, 2012 at 09:24 PM
Sorry to disagree with your opinion, but I think some evidence came out recently about Wisconsin gaining 15,000 jobs in January. I guess you were just being sarcastic...
Michael Scott March 09, 2012 at 09:29 PM
Jason is clearly not familar with the old "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt" adage.
James R Hoffa March 09, 2012 at 09:38 PM
