Reality Checkarena

Reality Checkarena will appear from time to time, but first a comment on this weekend in Oshkosh.

War protesters are back on Fridays at the sundial in Peace Park. There is a slight shift in attitudes. Folks are beginning to realize that our country's (mis)leaders are flatly refusing to give any indication of an end to the quagmire in Iraq. The rummage sale at Peace Park was in full swing when I drove by this morning. Farmer's Market opened today. A freebie at the Leach Amphitheater grand opening. The monthly Art Walk downtown tonight. The Art Walk is a great way to spend a Saturday evening. I think the owners of other businesses are missing the mark by not being open during the Art Walk, which brings a lot of foot traffic into the area.

Now for the Reality Checkarena...

Are you a conservative? 'Mall-Wart'-the place to buy cheap plastic junk, is openly conservative. The owners make it no secret that they support Republican candidates with their wallets and their endorsements. Every time a big box 'Mall-Wart' opens the County Dept. of Social Services needs more money to help pay the Dr., Clinic, and hospital costs of 'Mall-Wart' employees who lack proper insurance.

The Walton family preyed on the taxpayers of Wisconsin to the tune of $2.7-Million last year. The Waltons and friends are staunch conservatives.

This is the reality of being conservative in Wisconsin.

Are you a conservative? Are you possibly something else?

When this was first published, I wasnt hardly anyone, I was new to the game, I didnt know about Gary's blog, but now, six months later,(and bored :) I am going back and reading up on what he's written and I find this!

Also happened in the last six months(well few...) is that I have decided to take up Anti-Walmart protesting and I have 2 sites up dealing with it.
