Well, well, well. It seems that certain bill in Wisconsin has been passed, or sort of. It appears that the Budget-Repair bill has got a screeching halt. A temporary restraining order, that the TRO to most people. For once, I’m glad that the bill that the rookie goverenor did not go all the way through as he thought. I should also say that the withholding of the Wisconsin 14, the protestors who seiged the capitol, farmers and those sporting the Teamsters, AFCSME, SEIU and other union membership gear all helped to get this round 1 victory. Also this would get those who think that bypassing a bill, like this should rethink. This is what Bill Maher reminded me of when conservatives, or Republicans at times likes to “push things through”. Sort of like George Bush. Now Scott Walker wants to emulate that notion thinking “yeah, I’m the Governor and I’m ramming through all kinds of bills that I don’t care if the people of Wisconsin like it or not.”

In saying that, there are consequences that must be faced. Just like the TRO Restraining Order halting the official publication of the bill, and also re-examining the votes and problems that the Wisconsin Republican Senators and Assembly had violated.  They know it. Again, elections have consequences like everyone has been saying for weeks. Hope that the state of Wisconsin has got the message received and copied.

On another note: Scott Walker now wants some High Speed Rail Money. “Things that make you go hmmm…..” – (For those who don’t know what that is, reference the 1990’s, Aresenio Hall, and C&C Music Factory.)  Just remember that he turned away 810 Million Dollars to have the Milwaukee Madison line dead because of politics. And the thought of boondoggles looming in the brain of his supporters. Now he’s pursuing the money again, only this time it’s for the Hiawatha Line of Amtrak, for 150 million. This dude is seriously downsizing. I don’t have a problem with Amtrak at all, but I still think that the cash should have gone to the project slated for the Milwaukee Madison High Speed Rail thing.

So again, that what the state gets.  Open for Business?
