Well there you go Wisconsin.

I am so laughing at all the folks who voted up for Scott Walker.

I am laughing at you!

Your pick to retain the Wisconsin’s Chair just single gave away another job opporutnity that could benefited this whole state. No, I’m not talking about the High Speed Rail and KRM Commuter Rail Projects. He’s already guilty of those. What I am referring to is the refusal and rejection of the proposed Hard Rock Hotel Casino Project in Kenosha. This reminds me of something at the end of 2014 when I asked the question of my WordPress Blog of Review. Where I scratched my head so many times and really had to bust out the real questions in asking?

Let me refresh the memory: Oh, is the State of Wisconsin really serious about bringing the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to Kenosha?

Well just today, that question has been answered with a no. And many guesses that Walker had to listen to the folks in Iowa in due for his so-called run to be the next President of the United States. Oh, and plus he believed that it would be very heavy on the taxpayers and plus have the nerve to blame Former Governor Jim Doyle. SERIOUSLY! Jim Doyle has been out of office since 2011 and Governor Numb Nuts (yeah I’m saying it!) believes he’s still around causing mess. No, from the very start, Mayor Tom Barrett did say hang on to your hats! He’s right! If any Wisconsinite DID NOT listen to the warning of Tom Barrett then apparently the memo didn’t get through to some or many brain dead Badger residents who feel Walker is a God. Personally, Scott Walker IS NOT A GOD! And this “Governor” also recently that made it clear about those who are unemployed or going through unemployment must go through drug testing. Get the Urine Samples out now. Now I know many of you probably read this blog and didn’t believe a word I said that this would happen, guess what: It’s time to fess up! If many of the Wisconsin Residents had VOTED MORE in 2014, we would not be in this mess. But now, you stayed home. Worried about your Music, your guns, your sport tickets, or maybe just too much big words. Oh yeah I’m going there! Over and over again, Elections have Consequences! They do. Plus also Polarized Politics (and sometimes Segregated Communities) can be a dangerous mix. Even as dangerous as the Flu in Wisconsin. Many of you voted up for Walker. And this is what you get.

CALLOUT: I thought “Wisconsin is open for business.” Is it really?

Maybe Wisconsin is open for business, but certain restrictions needed to apply.

And the decision made is another example why Wisconsin can’t really get out of the funk of rejecting this and that. Oh what, is gambling a considered boondoggle? And word also that Potawatomi Hotel and Casino tipped off Walker the warning.

Now those who were wondering, what kinds of jobs would have benefited from this casino project? Via the source from Casino Kenosha Website:

Jobs & Economic Impact
The Kenosha entertainment center and casino will create more than 3,300 good-paying jobs with benefits for local residents, and indirectly support another 1,800 local jobs. On top of that, just building the facility will create more than 1,400 family-sustaining construction jobs. Those 6,500 jobs go a long way toward helping fulfill Governor Walker’s goal of creating creating 250,000 new jobs in the Badger State.

Additionally, the Kenosha casino will make more in state and local government payments than any other Wisconsin company or Tribe – essentially, it will be the State of Wisconsin’s largest taxpayer. Agreements in place with the City of Kenosha and Kenosha County will also benefit local schools, cultural institutions and nonprofits.

Plus the Menominee Nation commented the “ultimate decision” of Scott Walker.

 “It is with great disappointment that I relay the message I received minutes ago from the Wisconsin Secretary of Administration, Mike Huebsch. Governor Walker will be announcing shortly his decision to say no to our Kenosha Casino proposal.

“It is our belief that this project would have improved the lives of the nearly 9000 members of the Tribe. Instead, one Tribe – the Forest County Potawatomi and one goal of Governor Walker – the Presidency has led to a no for our people.

“The Tribe and our partners at Hard Rock International will meet in the next few days to discuss any options we have. Until then – we must remember all the Menominee Nation has overcome in more than 10,000 years – we will continue to thrive as a Nation and will continue to be honorable partners for Indian Tribes in Wisconsin and around the Nation.”

Well, there it goes, Walker fans. All those times I’ve said this in the past, and I’m saying it now: I told you so! And on the flipside, what is Iowa saying to tell Walker to reject the casino? Oh that’s right…..Scott Walker is hinting a run. A Presidential Run for the White House in 2016. I have message for America: DO NOT PICK SCOTT WALKER! For all those “Republicans” who don’t follow Walker and don’t like his ideas or policies, put him on BLAST! I dare you. Put Scott Walker on blast on everything he says and does between now and 2016. I know many of you probably won’t do it. But I’m daring you. No, I’m double dog daring you!

Now I want to direct my attention to the Menominee Tribe in trying to get this Hard Rock Hotel and Casino going. First, I feel you. Really I do. I think you worked very hard for the last couple of years or more just trying to get this off the ground. Yes, I’m not a gambler. And yes I have been to Hard Rock Cafes in New York, Detroit, and Orlando. Speaking of that: I think since this project had been declared dead by Scott Walker, try a plan B. In which, that Wisconsin could use an opportunity to build more Hard Rock Cafes! Build them in Kenosha, Madison, Green Bay, Racine, and mainly the Metro Area of Milwaukee. It’s time I think that Hard Rock Cafe (not the casino or hotel) needs to start up in Wisconsin in terms of future economic growth and get more jobs for those looking for one than the same old mess we’ve been going through since. I say this as a resident and plus I’m saying this as an African-American. This cancellation of the Hotel and Casino really reflects on why Wisconsin cannot get ahead due to blatant polarized politics of the state! And even the fear of competition of Potawatomi Hotel and Casino, and even others of Oneida and Ho-Chunk. That’s my statement. Fight on if you must, but always remember that there is always a “PLAN B!”

And hopefully that Plan B alone can be better for many employment hungry Wisconsinites (even of African Decent) to partake in.
