Congressman Dennis Kucinich gave the keynote speech Saturday March 12, 2011 at the historic Barrymore Theater in Madison, Wisconsin. Speaking to a packed house Kucinich time-after-time brought the audience to it’s feet responding to the passion of his words. Once again Kucinich is in the forefront of the battle to take back America for it’s citizens. When others hold back like Feingold and Obama Dennis takes action.

Recall the Walker 8

by , posted on Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

The clock started ticking on March 2, 2011 when Wisconsin citizens initiated the recall of eight Republican state senators who back Scott Walker.

After filing the papers, pro-recall activists will have 60 days (that is 55 days from this posting) to collect almost 15,000 signatures per district.  Party activists have narrowed down the top six districts that are most likely to recall their senator. You can see the chart below.  It is true that District 8 is slightly closer to Chicagoland, but I am planning on spending my weekend in District 14; supporting the Wisconsin14.



We are Wisconsin!

A Friday layoff check, a tank of gasoline, my buddy Joe, and my “Stand with the Wisconsin 14” sign put me in the heart of the fight to protect the middle class of America this past Saturday.

It felt like democracy – more so than Grant Park on election day in 2008.  Many of my friends are probably already following the fight between Scott Walker, the corporate-backed governor of Wisconsin, and state workers (teachers, firefighters and police) who are fighting to protect the very right to bargain in unity (instead of individually) for fair wages and benefits.
