By Jove, Wisconsin Really Is Open For Business

http://cognidissidence.blogspot.com/2012/07/by-jove-wisconsin-really-is-open-for.html



Despite having listed over 125 businesses that have closed and/or laid people off, there is one business that has thrived in the economic climate that Scott Walker and the Republicans have created in Fitzwalkerstan - pawn shops:

...

"We're seeing people you wouldn't expect need to be in a pawn shop are coming into a pawn shop," co-owner Brian Zinn said.

He is seeing contractors pawn their tools for a quick loan so they can gas up their vehicles to drive to the next job.

...

I find it rather telling that the only business thriving in Fitzwalkerstan is one designed to thrive off of people who aren't thriving.




A most astute observation.
