Some Words Are Meaningless To Scott Walker

Many times when you talk to someone about government, especially an anti-government zealot, one of the phrases most likely to pop up is this one from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address: "...of the people, by the people, for the people..."

This famous phrase is apparently meaningless to Scott Walker.

Caffeinated Politics, based in Madison, is up in arms about some of the draconian measures being taken for Monday's inauguration.

For example, the disabled, the elderly and anyone else that might need to use the elevators at the state capital might as well not show up, since their access to their government is going to be severely restricted.

But Walker isn't being biased against these folks. No sirree. He's against any and all of the common riff-raff, disabled or otherwise, from having access to the government that their taxes pay for.

So why is Walker doing this? Simple, he's not as popular as his mouthpieces in talk radio, the newspapers and on conservative blogs would have you believe.

On his big day, there is already a movement afoot to give him the special salute he deserves. This group will consist of organized labor, high speed rail advocates, the unemployed and anyone else that actually gives a damn about the state and understands how he is preparing to take that all away and give it the the oligarchy that supported him over the years.

It just makes me wonder what he'll do when the real protests start.

  1. I assume that the inaguration is invitation only- like senators and members of the assembly and a few other people. They have an elevator to help those people who need it.
    But mybe you will piss and moan About Andrew Cuomo's inaguration in New York, very small and restricted.
    Most inagurations are invite only, so quit your crying, capper and the ilk who contributed to this piece.
