What does Kitty have to say?


 


New Republican powers

I'll admit I don't understand the intricacies of the court ruling made yesterday that allowed that union-busting bill to move forward and become law. But here's what it seems like to me..there is a law that says that governments must give adequate notice when they're going to make laws or set public policy..but that the state legislature doesn't have to follow that law. That seems like dangerous territory to me, and I'm concerned this could lead to even more power grabs by the state legislature. Here are some of the things we can look forward to in the not-so-distant future. 1. All Democratic lawmakers will be required to wear monitoring bracelets so they can easily be located and be brought to the capitol at any time. That way they can be ignored by Republicans who are "doing what's best for the state of Wisconsin." 2. Any one caught rolling their eyes during a legislative hearing or floor session will be immediately shot. 3. Gov. Walker will ask for federal money to build a playground outside the capitol. That way when lawmakers are on recess..they're actually experiencing recess. Democrats will never be allowed to use the teeter totter or the tether ball. 4. In order to save money needed to implement the Voter ID law, henceforth all elections will be canceled, and the current lawmakers will be lawmakers-for-life. 5. The state motto will be changed to "Suck It, Middle Class."

business review
by Marc Kovac Capital Bureau chiefColumbus -- It seems like only yesterday that lawmakers were mumbling and grumbling about the state of Ohios economy about the need to do more to protect existing jobs and create new ones and about the likelihood that budget crunches will continue for biennia to come.Actually it was only yesterday but thats besides the point. In July after a slightly extended opening session of the 128th General Assembly lawmakers left capital city for a long summer break.They return to the Statehouse this week to face continued economic doldrums plus a new slate of hot-button issues that will prompt partisan bickering but likely no shouts of You Lie! across the political aisles .Here are a few of the issues that will take center stage in coming months Gay discrimination The House is poised to act on legislation that would ban discrimination by landlords and businesses against residents and employees based on their sexual orientation.House Bill 176 is sponsored by Reps.

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
