I believe that the R's are moving it in the right direction. If however there was a violation in the posting laws (brown act) then that is a legitimate reason to place a moratorium on it.

But Joe, darling, you forgot the critical part, as you always do, about this "Breaking News."

This was done by a COUNTY judge with no authority to do this.

You don't have to believe me. Just monitor it.

I guess the question is, will you consider THAT to be "breaking news" when it happens?

These comments pretty much tell the MS story. A reference to a California law called the Brown Act, and an ignorant comment suggesting that the judge in question lacked authority due to his lowly status. Considering that the state's elected officials are talking about doing an appeal, that would rule out the latter argument.

but anonymous, darling, the county judge did indeed have the authority to issue the restraining order. It can now be appealed to a higher court. Try to learn a bit about the judicial system before you spout off next time.

432, I am a member of the Cal Bar.

Let me prove to you that you're a fucking MORON.

The law is a STATEWIDE law in Wisconsin. A STATE judge is the only judge, other than a FEDERAL judge that can do something about a STATEWIDE law. Idiot.

Since you obviously don't know about this, DEAR, why don't you watch CNN or FOX NEWS. They can dumb it down so even you can understand. Maybe.

Unless you think CNN and FOX NEWS both don't know what you claim to know.

4:57,
I can see why you are an unemployed member of the bar. I'll type slowly so you'll understand. The county judge issued a restraining order halting publication of the law. This is within the bounds of the county judges discretion. This decision blocks implementation of the law unless it is overturned by a higher court you stupid schmuck. He is not ruling against the law itself you dimwitted twerp. The GOP is now appealing to a higher court as they are entitled to do you dingleberry of ignorance.

I probably pay more in benefits for my small law firm than you earn in a decade.

Go turn on the news and learn yourself something. BOTH of the news channels say that the judge overstepped.

You sound like a genuinely busy person. Not just posting online, but correcting others, incorrectly. You must be a great earner.

Pyrrhic victory Joe.....it wont stand and you know it. Also, this was a "special session" of the Wisconsin Senate, and is NOT covered under the 24 hr. notice rule. It will either be overturned, or if the lib judges make it stand, they give notice and re-vote...you lose either way Joe!

I certainly don't need a cable news channel to explain the law to me. I'm sorry that you do. The judge's ruling is legitimate and you sir, are a stupid inbred cockroach.

Dear Foolish non-Attorneys,

You're both wrong.

The judge MAY issue a TEMPORARY restraining order, but she doesn't have jurisdiction to deal with the core issues.

That's a state and then federal issue. Morons.

5:53, I am correct. Reread my comments. I just left out the word temporary. The GOP is appealing now to overturn the Temporary restraining order.

The TRO will be gone in the blink of an eye next week.

If not, the Republicans will track the Democratic Senators to keep them from fleeing, redo it, on emergency basis, and the Governor will sign it.

The fools are wasting their union money paying some greedy lawyer to run these writs and for nothing.

I don't know about lawyer's fees in Wisconsin since my firm doesn't bother with an office there, but I'd have at least $100,000 in a retainer before I filed one of these; the time and preparation, plus possible discovery later will eat that up in less than a month.

Whoever is giving counsel to these losers, needs a course in Public Relations 101, Politics 101as well as Litigation 101.

With legitimate recall efforts underway (initial reports are that they are on target to succeed in qualifying for a special recall election), the GOP members may be thinking twice about this legislation. Any way you look at it, it's more bad press for the Governor, the state, and the GOP.

Sorry, Joe. It's not bad press for the Governor, it is good press.

The voters that elected him and the Republican majorities in the House and Senate in Wisconsin want this to happen. Clearly, they are the silent majority.

The vocal minority, with whom you side, are simply re-awakening the sleeping giant that threw them all out in the first place.

That's the trouble with you Liberals, you always assume that you are on the right side of the issues.

This is not a Liberal/Conservative issue or an equal rights issue. It is a greed entitlement issue for the teachers and union members.

Don't believe for a moment that a poll you read today will remain the same in four or five months; that is basic Politics 101.

Joe @856,

Respectfully Joe, I think you're something of a kook to think that this is ONLY bad news for the Republicans.

If anything, it's bad news for the Dems since Ohio and Wisconsin are moving ahead with similar measures.

Joe...your setting yourself up for a huge disappointment, in more ways than one. You guys hit your high water mark in 08, and its been all down hill ever since.

The voters realized what they put in office, and are now correcting that mistake, except for the dummies in CA, who are 2 years behind.

All of your socialistic programs are on there way to repeal, and unions are going to be curbed one way or the other.

Are you going to have stroke when Ohio, and Indiana pass the same legislation as Wisconsin? Are you going to freak out when Obama is thrown out of office?

Your liberal/socialistic dream world is starting to crash down around your feet, and your whistling past the graveyard. You need to see REALITY, not fantasy land. Keep reading one sided polls, and set yourself up for epic fail.
