On this week’s Off the Grid, I react to Republican Presidential contender, Scott Walker’s punitive anti-abortion bill that makes no exceptions for victims of rape or incest, and on Walker’s move to cut $250 million from the University of Wisconsin to put toward funding a new basketball arena. Tune into this all new edition of #WTF to hear my advice, governor to governor.

Do you think Scott Walker still has a chance at the GOP nom?

Does Scott Walker have a chance?

Depends. If the system is as rigged as it appears to be, the person that is backed by the most dollars will win.

Who knows how this all will turn out except for those with sway over the various media outlets to make it appear that we still have a choice in the matter.
Last I checked, Walker has some deep pocketed people behind him.

It is true, what a fool.

Why Did Scott Walker Commit $400 Million for a Pro Basketball Arena?

There goes any support I might have had for Walker, only cronies do crap like this, Trump too.

The Koch brothers and all their reactionary buds at ALEC, that's who. Plus the owner of the Menards chain and Diane Hendricks, Wisconsin's richest woman.

Beat me to it. Some deep pockets and corporations that are people as well. Thank you, United States Supreme Court for Citizens United.

I believe I blasted Walker on another thread already. In my view, he’s one of the worst of the current crop of clowns running for President. Strictly bad news.

IMO, of the 17 or so Republicans running for the nomination, there’s not a single individual qualified to be our President. Pathetic.

As a general note, Donald Trump is currently the uncontested front-runner for the Republican nomination. He continues to dominate the airways and sets the general tone for the Republicans on the issues. When Trump makes outlandish statements that make headlines, all the other 16 candidates sheepishly fall in line. Even when Trump violates standard Republican ideology, the other candidates lack the balls to stand up and call him on it. They’re all afraid of Trump and unwilling to challenge him.

If for no other reason, this in itself should disqualify all the other Republican candidates for President. If they don’t have the nerve to contest Donald Trump, how can anyone expect them to be successful on the world stage when confronted by hostile and aggressive foreign powers? Benjamin Netanyahu may not always be around to hold their hand...

Just my 2 cents...

Really who gives a two cents about whatever scot walker says.
Is this supposed to be attention grabbing or relevant?

Get with the Trump train.

Well, we all know education takes a back stage when it comes to sports. We all know how he attacked the teacher's union in his state. So this doesn't really surprise me in the least.

As for the rape and incest thing, most pro-lifers who have never been a victim of incest or rape, or faced the emotional trauma of realizing they're pregnant from something they'll live with the rest of their life, really have no business deciding for those that have. They need to stop being judge and jury and leave it between the mother and her maker.

Jesse,

Masterful takedown of Walker and those of his ilk. I am too far to the left to consider voting for Trump, but I greatly appreciate him taking the limelight away from guys like Walker. That makes me very happy. I also appreciate that he is taking a moderate-to-progressive (i.e. anti-regressive) stance towards women. I have a very strong suspicion that there are many (perhaps a majority of) conservative folks who are NOT pro=life, but moderately pro-choice.

Abortion was LEGAL when America was founded and allowed up until around the fourth - fifth month (or 'quickening' of the child). link

The modern history of the religious right's intensive involvement with abortion began around 1980. It was a POLITICAL move...

Just as influential, however, was pressure from Republican party operatives to form a movement that could steal socially conservative voters from Democrats. As Linda Greenhouse and Reva B. Siegel have written:

[F]eminist support for abortion rights had imbued the abortion issue with associations that could be tapped to mobilize a wide array of cultural conservatives… Strategists for the Republican Party approached Falwell and encouraged him to organize evangelicals as a ‘Moral Majority’ that would promote a ‘pro-family’ politics.
Once formed, the Moral Majority and its allies mobilized evangelicals to join Catholics in the fight against abortion by advancing a novel and tendentious interpretation of the Bible.
link

History is a most interesting teacher.

The country needs to move forward towards a society that is compassionate, educated, and where opportunities for work exist beyond sub-survival and survival-only wages, where education actually does equal opportunity, and where a playing field of social equality of men and women and "races," etc. can be coupled with personal merit to allow all of us a chance at self-determination and success. We can't all just "pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps" in an economy of corporate welfare where the individual is left to fall mercilessly off the high-wire created by corrupt banks, austerity politics and greed. Meanwhile, we have a corporate elitist class that buys our politicians and seems to be desperately lusting after the days of Robber Barons and the horrors of pre-union labor conditions.

Anyways, enough of my soapbox speech! I just got riled up after watching your video and am posting to cheer you on with this one...

Bought and paid for by the Koch brothers. That is all.

Tread carefully. Don't forget who writes your cheques, Mr. Ventura....

Political figures does the darnest thing,

I believe in Karma, people that take stances on certain issue with no regards for the people that their influences will affect, will get to live themselves what they condemn others to endure.


He have no chance in hell to get the GOP nomination.

Now I understand why trump is popular, when you stand him next to the alternatives. All the conservatives in America and you can't even field a sane politician.people are so quick to talk about things like cultural Marxism on this site, people fail to recognise the damage of evangelical Christianity and the dumbing down of politics has done to the culture. Your now at a stage where non other than Donald Trump looks like the only one the right can vote for. Good luck with that I guess. Should be interesting as a spectator.
