Scott Walker - The End Is Near!

By Jeff Simpson 

Scott Walker, in a recent economic forum speech, put his shades on and gave a speech about the future of Wisconsin.   

MADISON — At a recent state economic summit, Gov. Scott Walker slipped on a pair of sunglasses and quoted the 1980s tune "The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades."
"You think about the future of this state, it really is exciting — not just where we’re at now, but where we’re headed," Walker said as the audience chuckled.
it is a sad state of affairs that when the Governor of your state, at an economic summit, says it is exciting where the state is headed and it is a punchline that draws laughter.   

However, what is even more telling is that fact that Scott Walker quoted a song about impending nuclear disaster.  

 Well I'm well aware of the world out there,getting blown all to bits, but what do I care?
Then there is the last verse of the song:

  • Blowin' up the lab,
  • Torn between two evils,
  • I always pick the lesser.

Knowing Walker's feelings toward education, you see how fitting this is, but I digress.   Scott Walker spent lots of time this summer, drinking and not working, with The Donald, so he knows as well as anyone the impending disaster.  

TRUMP: Let me explain. Let me explain.
Somebody hits us within ISIS — you wouldn`t fight back with a nuke?
  MATTHEWS: OK. The trouble is, when you said that, the whole world heard it. David Cameron in Britain heard it. The Japanese, where we bombed them in 45, heard it. They`re hearing a guy running for president of the United States talking of maybe using nuclear weapons. Nobody wants to hear that about an American president.
TRUMP: Then why are we making them? Why do we make them?


As Timbuk3 also points out in the title track of the same album.

 The future's been bright for so long now, it looks like dark to me
