Unlucky 13

Thirteen states have complete democratic power, some with super majorities. So, the skids are greased and pointed at hell. The idiotic voters will have no one but themselves to blame when each of these leftist Utopias become third world shitholes.

From the Slimes -

NY Times- “For quite a period of time, people were voting for divided government because they wanted compromise, middle ground,” said State Senator Thomas M. Bakk, the minority leader — and soon to be majority leader — in Minnesota. Democrats there seized control of both legislative chambers, creating single-party rule in St. Paul for the first time in more than two decades. “But they’ve come to realize that compromise is getting awfully hard to accomplish. The parties have gotten too rigid. Maybe this whole experiment with voting for divided government is starting to wane. I think that’s what happened here.”

Leftists characterize everything they are against as an “experiment,” as if we are all clueless children that have to be patiently indulged and patronized for awhile, to “get it out of our system.”

Twenty-four states will be controlled by Republicans, including Alaska and Wisconsin, where the party took the State Senate, and North Carolina, where the governorship changed hands.

“The fact is, they can do whatever they want now,” Chris Larson, the Democrats’ newly chosen Senate minority leader in Wisconsin, said of the Republicans in his state. He noted, glumly, that they have been holding planning meetings behind closed doors since the election.

Glumly, the senate minority leader noted that complete Republican control is merely “an experiment.”

Let’s see what is in store for Wisconsin that is making the left so glum:

Robin Vos, a Republican selected last week as the speaker of Wisconsin’s Assembly, voiced a willingness to work with Democrats, but also quickly ticked off plans to press for an income-tax cut, education changes and a “top-to-bottom review” of state regulations.

Tax cuts, education changes and regulation review, OH MY!

Let’s see what the dems are up to with their power:

“We’ll trade gridlock for progress,” said Mr. Dayton, who added that his plans included increasing taxes on the richest Minnesotans and devoting more money to education.”

I never saw that coming.

“I said to my staff, ‘The easier two years are over, and the harder two years are now beginning, because we have the added responsibility to lead,’ ” Mr. Dayton said. “And this is a responsibility I welcome, but given the challenges the state faces and our country faces these days, it’ll be a lot of hard work.”

Raising taxes and spending it? Now, that is tough work.

Lowering the tax burden on the electorate, reviewing regulations from top to bottom and overhauling education? Simple.

    On the bright side, I expect WI to welcome employers from IL and MN over the next two years. Walker just has to roll out the welcome mate and away we go to near full employment.

    Thank you residents of neigbhoring states for sacrificing your jobs for our little ol’ experiment in responsible government over here in Cheesehead country. Perhaps we can ship you some of our progressives as a “balanced approach” to your generous contribution. No need to to thank us for the flee baggers, the pleasure will be all ours.

    Actually, they won’t blame themselves at all … when their own fouled nests have become unbearable, they’ll move to red states and start the process of reforming them too.

    Question 5 – democrap gerrymandered voting
    districts
    Question 6 – gay marriage
    Question 7 – gambling expansion into the poorest areas of the state, so welfare recipients can piss away our tax dollars. But it’s for the children…..

    They sit on their asses in the capitol building all day and call it ‘hard work’
    I suspect most of them wouldn’t know hard work if it shuffled up and got a jaw lock on their backside…

    Someone said the other day on C-Span that States cannot declare bankrupcy. Does that mean that the rest of us have to bail them out when the time comes?

    Sure seems like a great time to open a Moving business that specializes in interstate relocation.

    “Someone said the other day on C-Span that States cannot declare bankrupcy.”

    That’s right, but they can sure as hell default on their debt leaving banks, pension funds, and insurance companies holding a butthurt in worthless paper.

    I live in MN and we most assuredly did NOT vote for the Democrats. The elections were stolen.

    It started with Al Franken. The voter fraud squads have been improving their thieving abilities since then, all supported by no voter IDs (which was one amendment they didn’t allow to pass) and a Democrat Secretary of State in charge of counting ballots – allowing Democrat ballots found in trunks of cars and disallowing Republican ballots from military and Republican majority districts.
