Well, you know Bret and me, we've never been too political. When it came to this Walker recall thing we didn't sign the petitions but we didn't go vote in the recall election either. Bret said, "I can't get excited about this guy. I mean, he surrounds himself with crooks, and beating up on state employees is, like, pathetic." (We used to laugh at state employees secretly—we both have friends who work for the state and they never got to take all-expenses-paid trips to Cancun like we did! And they sure as hell never found a case of Johnnie Walker Black scotch on their doorstep from "Santa Claus" either!).
It's pretty amazing when you think that we got to really live the high life, with a big-ass McMansion and boats and his-n'-her SUVs and paid vacations in the tropics, and state employees never had ANY of that. And yet, now everybody is screaming about their money, and Scott Walker just took a big chunk of it!!!
That certainly would be unfair to those poor state workers who worked for years for those pensions, when they didn't even get to go to the nude beach in Cancun and drink umbrella drinks for two weeks on the bank's payroll.
"I don't know how they managed to piss Walker's people off so bad, but they sure did," sez my hubby. "And I thought bankers were ruthless. Hey, can you fetch me an MGD, hon?"
