Walker's closest aide spilled the beans, and in court Looks like justice may finally have caught up

with the slippery eel. It also seems like an indictment can't help but follow.

Update on story of Gov. Walker having a love child.

I googled "Is it true Gov. Walker has a love child?" And below is one of the many
articles on that topic:

http://www.uppitywis.org/blogarticle/walker-love-child-story-updated

Walker's wrong-doings began very early in life. It's said he will very likely face indictment

sometime in the coming months, whether he wins or loses the gubanatorial election on
Tuesday, June 5. Now comes this new development:

http://www.uppitywis.org/blogarticle/university-minnesota-scientist-drops-bombshell-about-walker-says

His wrong-doings began at a very young age. If I had any doubts about his being a
sociopath in the past, I definitely no longer do. Looking at his behavior from his
youthful days and onward, what clearly stand out are his qualities of sheer deceptive
and evil ambition in addition to his naked and pitiless aggression - always profiting
at other people's expense.

Knowing the above, how could any thinking person possibly vote for him?

Here are examples of dirty-tricks that right-wingers in Ohio and Fla., and organizations like

"True The Vote.org.", are doing right now in tampering with the voting system. The right-
wingers aren't very subtle about what they're doing, either. Could the reason be they think
they can do anything, and the Democrats will just take it? Can anyone think of effective
ways of stopping them?

Are we dealing with human beings, or are we dealing with monsters?
Monsters belong in cages.

We have only 8 days left to kick Walker out of office in WI. Barrett is the one to do it. Let's

help him in every way we can. Walker is the prototype of the corporatist who steps
down on the 99% in order to gain scraps from the table of the 1% (Koch Brothers).
Let's all help to give this toady the boot! And many, many Thanks!

What will America look like in 2025? One could guess a little by looking at the

following:

Planning: Businessmen plan for the future. Politicians don't. Politicians just go no
further than planning for how to win their next election. Is it any wonder that they
land up in the pockets of business people?

Savings: Americans have the lowest savings rate in the Western World. Those
who plan for their future usually have some savings for that future they have
in mind.

Manufacturing: Only 30 years ago manufacturing accounted for 25% of our nation's
GDP. Today it accounts for 10%. Almost everything comes from abroad, especially
from China. .........etc..........

What might all this mean?

Those who fail to plan are planning to fail.

We've got to change! And this article makes
a few suggestions as to how to change.

I remember Michael Jackson's death, but not Iceland's change of government and re-writing

the nation's constitution. The coverage of the changes in Iceland must have been smaller
and shorter, even though the importance is greater by far.

Why have we heard nothing about this incredibly important development in Iceland? News black-out?!?

A friend just passed this info on to me about this incredible piece of political development in Iceland, and
I am passing it along to you.



<< ICELAND. No news from Iceland?… why? Why do we hear so much of what happens in Egypt, but no
news about what’s happening in Iceland:

In Iceland, the people have made the government resign, the primary banks have been nationalized, it
was decided to not pay the debt that these created with Great Britain and Holland due to their bad
financial politics, and a public assembly has been created to rewrite the constitution.

And all of this in a peaceful way. A whole revolution against the powers that have created the current
global crisis. This is why there hasn’t been any publicity during the last two years: What would happen if
the rest of the EU citizens took this as an example? What would happen if the US citizens took this as
an example.

This is a summary of the facts:

2008. The main bank of the country is nationalized.
The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market stops. The country is in
bankruptcy

2008. The citizens protest in front of parliament and manage to get new elections that make the
resignation of the prime minister and his whole government.
The country is in bad economic situation.
A law proposes paying back the debt to Great Britain and Holland through the payment of 3,500
million euros, which will be paid by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with a 5.5%
interest.

2010. The people go out in the streets and demand a referendum. In January 2010 the president
denies the approval and announces a popular meeting.
In March the referendum and the denial of payment is voted in by 93%. Meanwhile the government
has initiated an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis, and many high level
executives and bankers are arrested. The Interpol dictates an order that make all the implicated parties
leave the country.

In this crisis an assembly is elected to rewrite a new Constitution which can include the lessons learned
from this, and which will substitute the current one (a copy of the Danish Constitution).
25 citizens are chosen, with no political affiliation, out of the 522 candidates. For candidacy all that was
needed was to be an adult and have the support of 30 people. The constitutional assembly starts in
February of 2011 to present the ‘carta magna’ from the recommendations given by the different assemblies
happening throughout the country. It must be approved by the current Parliament and by the one
constituted through the next legislative elections.

So in summary of the Icelandic revolution:
-resignation of the whole government
-nationalization of the bank.
-referendum so that the people can decide over the economic decisions.
-incarcerating the responsible parties
-rewriting of the constitution by its people

Have we been informed of this through the media?
Has any political program in radio or TV commented on this?
No! The Icelandic people have been able to show that there is a way to beat the system and has given
a democracy lesson to the world >>



I wonder if we Americans are capable of doing the same thing the Icelanders have done. For one thing,
I don't believe that they have half of their country totally brain-washed by their right-wing media. Still, we
do have our Occupy Wall Street........ So, this really keeps me wondering.

Psychologist Robert D. Hare, Ph.D. in his book "Without Conscience" poses the

question: "Is Gov. Scott Walker a psychopath?"

"...We are becoming much more educated these days about psychopaths and as was stated above, there are many more of them than many people had realized - and they are running around free, they are living lives as if they were normal people, yet, still causing us all to live lives which are dramatically different than we would be able to live without them causing us the trouble that they do. Another expression or term that has been applied to psychopaths recently is that they are 'anti-human beings'. In some studies on the subject, psychopaths are described as non-human beings, but beings of a different sort, meaning they may look or have the appearance of ordinary human beings, but that they are in fact, another species - one that preys on humans.

There may be as many as five genes which psychopaths have which are different from normal (real) human beings. This could make them as different from us than an entirely different species, as if they are actually like (land) sharks which happen to look like us. And I think that this is the real danger for us when it come to psychopaths, IS that they look like us. We know to avoid sharks and other dangerous creatures, but what if those dangerous creatures look and act just like us? That, is what I feel that we are really dealing with when it comes to psychopaths.

Some of the items that called my attention to Scott Walker as a psychopath is that he has done many things the same way that I have seen psychopaths do things. One thing that they do is to use 'disclaimers'. That is, that they will tell you (to some degree that seems reasonable) what they plan to do. But they are thinking of things not as a normal human being, but as if this were like a chess game where they are always about 5 to 10 moves ahead of everyone else. they know ahead of time, for instance, what they will be forcing their opponents to do and they have already thought out how they are going to exploit the situation at that point. ........"
