My Birthday Wish List

My birthday is coming up in ten days. In light of that, I was going to start a begathon today, asking people to donate to the old tip jar so I could buy a new monitor and printer/scanner to go with the People's Computer.

But as I was thinking about it, there is something I'd like more for my birthday, and it's something that each and every one of you could help with.

So here is my birthday wish list:
I want my state back.
And the only way that can happen is if we get true progressives elected into office. Sadly, the true progressives are running against people that have sold their souls for the chance to sell us out and are all running with big corporate/PAC money.

And that, dear friends, are where you come in.

I would like you to donate to these people instead of giving me your money. Furthermore, any money I receive between now and on my birthday will be divvied up among the following four candidates, unless you specify otherwise:
  • Laura Hauser-Menting is running for the 71st Assembly District. One of her opponents in the primary is taking money from one of these national PACs, which she just "coincidentally" works for. We need to keep our state ours. Please help Laura out.
  • Scott Michalak is taking on Joel "Honey Wagon" Kleefisch (and he's earned that nickname in more than one way, if the stories are to be believed). Kleefisch is on the take big time and is receiving the help of people like the Bradley Foundation and the Kochs. Please help Scott out.
  • Mandela Barnes is taking on Jason Fields, a corporate Democrat who has sold out his city and his constituents to the education profiteers who would throw our kids under the school bus if it would help their profit margin. Please help Mandela out.
  • Tanya Lohr is taking on the slimy, mysoginistic, utterly hateful Glenn Grothman, who just wants to watch the world burn, using Wisconsin as the kindling. He too is the beneficiary of people like the Bradley Foundation and the Koch boys, Please help Tanya out.
In advance, I thank you for the wonderful birthday present of giving these four people a fighting chance to give me us my our state back.

  1. My birthday is in just a few days. I know that it won't happen until long after that but I want to see Scott Walker making a fashion statement wearing an orange jump suit and shackles.
