Haven’t done this in a while, but I think it’s time for me to get back to do these “I told you so” things about the Badger State Politics per say.
Plagiarism in Politics, broken campaign promises. Oh and these “Militia-like threats” in Poll Watching.
More recently in the current Wisconsin Politics, there was an act of plagiarism that took place between Mary Burke, and the current Governor Scott Walker. The Walker folks recently spotted a flaw in the Burke campaign in relation to the jobs idea to get the state further up. They claimed on their part that Mary Burke stole ideas from other democrats in order to get her jobs plan idea to show. Mainly also since then, the person, Eric Schnurer whom Mary picked as her Campaign Consultant, was fired from his post in this recent story. And yes the Walker folks went all ham on Burke for this. Even sometime after that, Scott Walker himself commented his “I say I believe” speech that Mary Burke can’t be trusted.
Oh, wait a minute!
What most folks realized in the four years that Walker has been in office, he can’t be trusted either! Oh, let me count the ways why:
1) The ongoing phrase of putting 250,000 private sector jobs by his first term. – I told you Walker folks then and I’m tell you now. That was not going to happen. I told you.
2) Slashing folks off of BadgerCare, especially those who are really needy for some sort of healthcare. And still being anti-Obamacare.
3) Act 10 and Collective Bargaining.
4) Education money was slashed.
5) Voter ID – don’t get me started on that.
And the most obvious: Refusing to accept over $800 million dollars to construct a High Speed Rail route which would have linked Milwaukee and Madison. And the jobs were almost in ink, but was thrown away by Walker, his administration, and also his so-called fans who thought it was a boondoggle that would not work. Really? And also that project, could have been a lifesaver for not only jobs, but also for getting to those hard to reach areas in getting to the jobs. I said this alot and I’m still saying it: Not everyone in Wisconsin doesn’t have a Driver’s License nor a vehicle!
Now that was just a sample that Walker himself can’t be trusted. Heck, I didn’t trust him when he was County Executive of Milwaukee County. Cutting bus routes, raising bus fares. And he came in after the late Tom Ament was existed due to the Pensions Scandal.
This political bull of the stories that rocked Plagiarism like a bad habit, I think and will assume that the Walker folks need to watch what they say because according to the Journal Sentinel, Walker kind of “stole some ideas” per say from other Republicans that got him competing. Oh, what are they you asked? Let’s see:
The “Wisconsin Comeback,” a phrase frequently used by Walker in his re-election campaign manager, comes from the “American comeback” campaign of the Republican Governors Association. The phrase is used by a few other GOP governors such as Sam Brownback,” who has talked in his re-election campaign about the “Kansas comeback.”
And here’s another:
In his successful 2010 race for governor, Walker used a theme of brown bag lunches to emphasize his frugality. That reprised a campaign theme of former U.S. Sen. George Voinovich, an Ohio Republican.
So what does that tell?
If done legally, sampling the words or phrases from other politicians, isn’t bad as long as it’s been done legally with reference. Back in school when we written papers or documents and used words quoted from famous writers of people, the teachers always told us to give the authors credit. Give them credit for sources. I mean that goes for anything. When I cite articles for my blog stories, I give the author or the publisher credit because that is the rule of law regardless.
How is this plagiarism talk is supposed to get people the jobs, health-care, education, infrastructure to better transportation, safety, and many other needy factors that mostly concerns the public? And those who are anti-Mary Burke with this plagiarism talk, is that the ONLY reason why you think Walker will win?
And just recently: there has been groups forming in Wisconsin. To clarify, this is what the “groups” have posted on Twitter:
Oh so these dumb idiots want to show up with guns and to make a threat to those in the African-American/Democratic Areas to vote on November 4th? These fools are so dumb! Having those guns, eh? Is that going to solve the problem? Really? Oh, now you want to get guns? Now you want to get those scared? You want to play this game?!!!!
GET THE BLANK OUT OF HERE!
I want to address the Wisconsin Black folks here. If you saw this post on Twitter, or any other platform, these fools are just looking for a fight. That’s all they are. These fools (like many others) don’t want you vote. Don’t want you to show up with your registration, your ID’s or any other right to cast your ballot in which our ancestors fought and died for in order to express and choose our vote respectfully. If you go to the polls, GO! When you go to the polls – GO! Don’t let these so-called militias scare you out of your right to validate your picks to vote!
As far as these so-called militias: they are asking for trouble! That’s all they are. And plus, if the real Governor himself Scott Walker were a real man, or a real citizen of leadership in his “I mean what I say” speeches, then he should condemn these groups and tell them to stand down. PERIOD! All you Republicans fans in Wisconsin, you Tea baggers Badgers who like guns in all: do you condone this? Coming from those who say “I got a lot of black friends” in all. Your black friends might be in danger in the Democratic areas of the Milwaukee area that you are friends with! Also: where is Sheriff David Clarke in this? Uh-huh Where’s the Sheriff in this? Is he and the County Sheriff Department is aware of this?! They should. We know the MPD might be in effect, and don’t be surprised if AG Eric Holder would be in effect also.
This stunt that these militias are asking for will backfire. Everybody all over town will have their names, address, credit history, criminal records, Social Media Pages, and pics to be on the lookout. Even if you are fans of black Wisconsin media. We got the names!
So for the 25th time: I told you so!
