    • I laughed at your comment ” they ran away to Illinois so the vote couldn't take place.” but then stopped as I’m now assuming these are elected by the public members - if I lived in Wisconsin I would be very angry as a voter right now.

      The world is in turmoil and they run away - hope they have their pay stopped !

    • Agreed, Ann!  He is full of hypocrisy and greed.  He is mean-spirited and immature.  I’d love to see him leave!

    • Annie I’m so with you on Micheal Moore. And as I’ve not been paying attention lately thank you for update. I need to get back in the loop of things!

    • Vicki, you‘re right, they should receive nothing for the time they disappeared.  Anybody else would be penalized as such if they failed to show up for work.  But it really doesn’t hurt them much.  Most politicians in our nation are wealthy individuals who wouldn’t miss the paycheck.   Yes, even the liberals are typically wealthy if they are high-profile politicians.

      Ann, I agree totally about Moore.  He is full of hypocrisy and greed.  He is mean-spirited and immature.  I’d love to see him leave the US!

    • As we are in uncharted territory as regards this global turmoil which might be two continents away is effecting everyone’s day to day living as in the price of gas (petrol)- you need people running the show who have a grasp of global and local policies and can see the direct impact on the folk who vote for them not running away and being so out of touch due to money ...
      Personally I think think your election process is way too long which in turn effects the quality of Government you get as you have to have billions of dollars to run for President so it has to be a billionaire who will not understand what it’s to have no job, no money and no future or you get someone who has to have his election campaign paid for by taking money of people/companies who don’t have the countries interest at heart - our election runs for 4 weeks very strict rules on campaign / advertising spend and no playing with lobby groups
      but hey we still didn’t get a real government

    • I see that Wisconsin has made international news. I read that 41 states are considering similar measures. Hopefully, they will not have elected officials crossing state lines and running away from their responsibility.

      Vikki,
      I always enjoy hearing how the rest of the world views our government. I do agree with you. Coincidently, I have been trying to read up on how the British government works. By the way, did you hear that Donald Trump is thinking about running for president?  If he should decide to run, he will make an announcement by June. Just thought you would be interested...

      Mary

    • Oh I do hope Donald Trump runs for President.  It would be so entertaining.  Actually he is a very smart man.  One of my favorite expressions is: “Holy Donald Turmp’s Hair!!!”  Or if I see something crazy and bizzare, I say, “That must be from Planet Donald Trump’s Hair.”

    • Our election process too long?  Why it’s only two years until the election, and they are already campaigning.  Really, should it take longer to elect someone than it does to have a baby?  It’s just a circus.

    • It didn’t make the national news like the Wisconsin stuff did but Indiana had the same problem.  

      My friend and I were talking about this issue this morning.  Both of us agreed that politicians should not be able to vote themselves raises.  To many time you have these people who just go off and vote themselves raises.  Personally they should have to ask if they can do so from the people.  I do think if that was the case they would be apdt to listen to what the people want from them.

      As far as Moore I really wish he would do a report on why Charlie Sheen is a winner.

    • I agree with the election process is too long. I hate having to dodge all of those stupid phone calls!

      If Trump would run, who do you think his running partner should be?
