The recall is lost and the Democrats still don't get it

The Democrats are saying that the loss to Walker was because they were out financed and out organized but that is foolish thinking.  The election was lost because WI resented the recall and its cost to taxpayers.  They saw it as a stamping the feet, childish, temper tantrum by people who did not vote in the first election and now were costing the state 36 million dollars in recall costs.  But more importantly, the election results were all about policy.  

The Dems must get over their contempt for their opponents. No, the opponents are not motivated by fear, stupidity and hate. They are motivated by their own financial interests which have been subordinated for years to the wants of public unions who are organized and who elect their legislator negotiators.

Property owners are not organized and, working 2 jobs, do not have time or energy to organize. They do not have staff to do it for them. But they understand that the wants of public unions is money out of their own pockets. All the stupid Dem arguments that non govt workers should be happy that others are making $60,000 a year plus extravagant benefits are falling on deaf ears.  The fact that the teachers insisted on teacher controlled health care insurance instead of insurance companies that offered the same benefits at a lower price was the death knell for any sympathy from the voters.

Why didn't Obama come here?  Because the natural question to Obama would be; if you support the right of public employees to organize then why won't you let the federal workers organize?

I am a Democrat despairing at the ugly, closed minded attitude of the Dem party and the liberals who think they are on the side of the angels. Doing the same policy over and over despite loss is insane - not recognizing the needs of your own base is insane. The public unions need to unite with the low income workers even if that means loss of some perks -- or they will lose everything to the anger of the oppressed.

Tax payers accept public workers we all use, police, firefighters, sanitation workers, some municipal workers, water dept., parks, etc. But state workers in public unions and the schools are unacceptable tax burden to those who are not using them (and who often object to the way they spend money). 

Democrats should consider advocating that the teachers and schools be removed from the property tax roll and the school be supported by parents of attending children. Until the Dems do this they will have no chance against the property tax arguments.  Until the schools are supported only by the people who use them, there will be no incentive to keep costs reasonable. 

Most people love the private sector unions as long as they are actually controlled by the local workers and not organized robber barons and crooks. And as long as they respond to the needs of the companies' customers, unlike GM workers who insisted that gas guzzler cars were what the people wanted.  But even private unions will suffer if they join with the public unions.  Pay attention AFL-CIO workers.  Support policies that are good for the people who are your customers or they will not support you.

While the Dems refuse to change their policies and stand with their base, the environment and women suffer from Repub policies.   The Dems think the crumbs they offer women will bring them into the Dem fold despite their economic conflict of interest.  But it is not working.  The Dems have to change their policy about public workers and illegal immigration and voter ID.  Their current positions are unacceptable to the non-public union working class.

Good! I was worried about you and me -- I hate saying the things that alienate me from the people I like and with whom I want to be together. But I am Cassandra in Spades - compelled to give warnings no one wants to hear or believe.

Don't worry! I am not so thin skinned that I would be upset by the truth. Nor am I too weak to stand up for what I believe in. And, I would never let politics ruin a wonderful friendship. I think I shall call you Cassandra from now on! :)

Which reminds me – you should Read "CommComm" by George Sanders here

It is only 9 pages.

His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper's, McSweeney's and GQ, among other publications.

I read it and found it disturbing. Did you enjoy it? I love satire, but this had a very real dark side.

I loved it, especially the references to positive thinking to cover up real things that ought to be faced. I laughed at the training I imagined which was actually a part of conformity anti-stress training. And the double speak of the PIDs which is actually used on us all the time -- laughed and laughed --

But the end was very uplifting to me - like a hymn -- a reminder not to reduce the WHOLE into the petty details that we think are so important and mean nothing really -- When I remember the movement I realize it was sisterhood that made it so important not the petty factions and policy divisions which mean nothing now.

The ending was beautiful and what I believe death really is. Of course I am the one in the family that always gets the visit the day after a death, even when I do not know the relative -- I know by the dream that they have died. So it was .. like a story about something that always happens to me. But I have no one to whom it also happens that understands so the story was a recognition and affirmation.

Process identifier

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

In computing, the process identifier (normally referred to as the process ID or just PID) is a number used by most operating system kernels (such as that of UNIX, Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows) to (temporarily) uniquely identify a process. This number may be used as a parameter in various function calls allowing processes to be manipulated, such as adjusting the process's priority or killing it altogether.

In Unix-like operating systems, new processes are created by the fork() system call. The PID is returned to the parent enabling it to refer to the child in further function calls. The parent may, for example, wait for the child to terminate with the waitpid() function, or terminate the process with kill().

“You killed him?” I say.

“An unfortunate thing transpired, after which he died, yes,” Rimney says."

I cannot explain why lines like this crack me up -- as a working class person I guess this is how I see the verbige of the upper middle class -- it is better explained in the book "Limbo".

Book Description
Publication Date: February 22, 2005 | ISBN-10: 0471714399 | ISBN-13: 978-0471714392 | Edition: 1

In Limbo, award-winning journalist Alfred Lubrano identifies and describes an overlooked cultural phenomenon: the internal conflict within individuals raised in blue-collar homes, now living white-collar lives.

These people often find that the values of the working class are not sufficient guidance to navigate the white-collar world, where unspoken rules reflect primarily upper-class values.

Torn between the world they were raised in and the life they aspire too, they hover between worlds, not quite accepted in either.

Himself the son of a Brooklyn bricklayer, Lubrano informs his account with personal experience and interviews with other professionals living in limbo. For millions of Americans, these stories will serve as familiar reminders of the struggles of achieving the American Dream.

I read CommComm. I thought it was pretty funny, crazy. I like all the titles. The nonsense. But the ending fell flat for me. I don't life after death redemption stories or regret stories or any life after death stories. None so far have moved me. But I'm going to read it again. It may be a fantasy or dream, the death parts. I may have missed it. I'm not that great of a reader the first time around. I get impressions, mostly, unless I'm really pulled in, then I get more. There's a lot to get out of life after death fantasies or dreams. Not much to get out of life after death realism.

GC NOTES-----------------------

dead id dead but that is not the point of the ending at all – the ending image is only a vehicle to say what the author wants to say about life which is more important than the image of life after death –

the point of the ending is about not reducing the WHOLE to our life of petty details and factions but to try to feel the Whole and the Connections rather than the divisions
