Walker's Web of Deceit

By Jeff Simpson

“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar”
Abraham Lincoln

H/T Jud Lounsbury 

Scott Walker, likes to say he loves public workers and has never said a bad word about them!

Scott Walker says a lot of things, unfortunately for the people of Wisconsin, most of them are not true.   This is not the exception.

In his upcoming book, he re-tells of a time that he cracked his staff up by reading the "Top Ten Ways to tell if you Might be a Member of a public sector union":
10.) You take a week off to protest in Wisconsin and your office runs better.
9.) On a snow day when they say “non-essential” people should stay home you know who they mean.
8.) You get paid twice as much as a private sector person doing the same job but make up the difference by doing half as much work.
7.) It takes longer to fire you than the average killer spends on death row.
6.) The worse you do your job, the more your boss avoids you.
5.) You think the French are working themselves to death.
4.) You know by having a copy of the Holy Koran on your desk your job is 100% safe.
3.) You spend more time at protest marches than at church.
2.) You have a Democratic congressman’s lips permanently attached to your butt.
1.) You pay more in union dues than you do for your healthcare insurance.
At some point, you would think that all of his lies would catch up to him and the good people of WI, would have had enough!


 “The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them.
Elena Gorokhova, A Mountain of Crumbs



  1. My husband finished the book, "Mein Kampf" and said one way the Nazis were able to deceive people was by repeating lies over and over, and eventually people believed them to be true because they had not been continually called out as lies. This is the Republican Mantra. I find it extremely disturbing.

    “Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.”
    ― Adolf Hitler

    If that isn't the Republican Mantra today, then please explain differently.
