As a 12 year old, I volunteered for Nixon. Need I say I've altered my views slightly?

The Republican party--the party of small government, the party of the power of the individual to make their own decision, the party of "keep government out of my medicare"--continues to serve people chicken crap and try to convince them it's chicken salad.  In Kansas, women that go to their doctor to discuss abortion will be read a script by their health care provider that is (1) mandated by the government and (2)false.  Here in Wisconsin, a doctor's written prescription that was discussed and agreed upon in the privacy of a closed exam room can be overruled at a crowded public counter if the pharmacist objects to distributing it.  That's right...if he objects to the medication and the use, he can legally refuse to give it to you.  And the list goes on.  

The best, most rewarding teaching job I ever had was at a small alternative school in Milwaukee.  I knew when I took the job that I had 2 years to move there.  The city of Milwaukee is one of 2 cities in the nation that has a residency requirement. The problem was that our house wasn't selling.  So, another job came up, and I left rather than get fired in November when there are no teaching jobs to be had.  So I hate the residency requirement with all my being.  

Now, presidential candidate (What?  You say he's also the governor?  When?)  Walker wants to end residency in Milwaukee.  My feelings on this ran in this order.  "YEAH!"  Followed within seconds with "Oh my.  I agree with Walker on something.  I think I'm going to throw up."  That feeling of ick lasted a few seconds and I suddenly went into emotion #3.  Disgust.  I hate the residency rule.  But it is MILWAUKEE'S rule.  Keeping it or getting rid of should be THEIR decision, not the decision of Scooter and his merry band of hayseeds that have a grudge against any place that has more than 3 stop lights.  Governor Alfred E. Newman and his band of bozos SAY they are for smaller government, but I have yet to see an example of it come out of Madison...or Topeka...or Montgomery...or Little Rock...or etc, etc, etc...

Maybe in the very near future, the masses will come to the realization that the chicken salad they have been eating is not all that tasty. I'll be there to welcome them when they do. 

Thanks for listening.
