There were just over a million signatures on the petition to recall Walker. Those people who signed will surely vote. Then add on the others who would vote against Walker and when all the votes come in, there should be at least a million votes for Barrett. I would imagine the majority of the people who signed plus another hundred thousand, if not more after so many teachers have been fired, would vote for Barrett.
Amanda Radle, 30, wanted to vote for in the gubernatorial primary, and she supports the effort to recall Walker, who has infuriated the state’s unions with his initiatives to cut benefits and limit collective bargaining.
Basically, Amanda and her husband, Jeffrey Radle, 36, were arguing in front of their Chippewa Falls, Wisc., home about who she was planning on voting for. Jeffrey and his brother, Mike Radle, are staunch supporters of Walker. When Amanda went to leave, her husband stood in front of her SUV and refused to let her pass. Eventually she found a “hole” and attempted to escape – but Jeffrey (stupidly) jumped in front of the vehicle.
That’s right. You read the title correctly. Senate Bill 507, introduced by Senator Grothman (R-West Bend) on February 23, 2012, would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect. Single parents make up a third of all Wisconsin parents. Once again, I am livid! What the hell is going on in our country? We seem to be going backwards in time as people’s rights start disappearing.
It is just now over one year since Wisconsin State Governor Scott Walker introduced a bill to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public labor unions, and who required state- and local-government employees to begin paying into their own pension accounts. For this, Walker faces an almost certain recall election this summer.
