The State of The County

Walker - the blind.


Walker is blind to the future, perhaps that is why he stand in front of a 48 star flag on the Milwaukee County web site. Apparently he thinks he is living before August 21st, 1959.

The County Executive reveals his inability to be either pragmatic or capable of empirical thought through his transit policy. Perhaps this is the product of believing at face value reports produced by the big oil funded Cato Institute and the Reason Foundation. The public should be suspect of these "Libertarian" organizations funded by people seeking their own advantage regardless of the impact on the health and welfare of our society. After all, the Laissez-faire society these "think tanks" advocate is the perfect place for keeping the lower and middle classes under the thumb of big oil.

Walker's ideological posturing has been an impediment to the progress of Milwaukee County. He is a roadblock to fixing the problems at Milwaukee County. This is why the Milwaukee County continues to decline under his "leadership." As the 'ol Harry Truman quote goes: "How many times do you have to get hit over the head before you figure out who’s hitting you?”

Good transit brings wealth to communities. Transit is a logical and necessary investment in a world of increasing population, diminishing oil supplies, and climatic change.

The below PBS NOW episode features a conservative Mayor with vision. An example to show that not all conservatives are blind to the future.
