"Senate Republicans spent hours going over the compromise plan Tuesday morning in a closed-door meeting, Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said. He acknowledged that pressure was increasing on the senators, saying the recall efforts launched against eight Republicans was "on everybody's minds."

"Everybody's obviously receiving a lot of pressure," Fitzgerald said. "I had people on my front porch before I left this morning.""

[UPDATED] Breaking: GOP replaces TWO members of Commerce and Labor Committee to ensure SB 5 passage


by ModernEsquire on March 8, 2011

"According to a house source, Republicans have on the first day of hearings replaced a member of the Commerce and Labor Committee in order to ensure passage of SB5. The makeup of the committee is 9-6 Republican. There are two freshman on the committee and what they are apparently doing is letting one freshman vote no to avoid electoral fallout, but they can’t let two people vote no or SB5 will not make it out."

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Proposes Union Compromise BY: Richard Long Published: March 08, 2011


Richard Long writes, "Under the compromise, state workers would still pay more for health insurance and pension plans, saving the state nearly $330 million in two years.

“It’s not a done deal,” Rick Newhouse, a political analyst in New York, told Politically Illustrated, adding, “but they’re working hard to end the stalemate.”"

"It’s almost over and the Democrats have won.”

How Dems are winning: Mark Miller keeps his cool, Scott Fitzgerald blows up


"Sometimes, it is simply best to let the members of the Wisconsin Senate speak for themselves about the dispute between the Republicans and the 14 Democrats who have refused to provide a quorum to pass Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill.

Early Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller, D-Monona, wrote a letter offering to negotiate with Walker and Republican legislative leaders.

Within hours, the governor had held a press conference in which he dismissed and derided Miller’s offer. Then Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, replied to Miller with what seemed to us to be one of the crudest letters seen in modern political discourse.

But we’ll let readers decide who is serious about resolving the impasse and who is playing politics."

TPMDC Ground Shift: Are Wis. Republicans Now Getting Worn Down?

Eric Kleefeld | March 8, 2011, 3:25PM

"But with the GOP's efforts to wear the Dems down now stalling out, is it in fact Republicans who might be getting worn down? It appears that more Republican state Senators have been becoming critical of the package. This, too, could very well sputter out -- but Dems only need three defections out of the 19-member GOP caucus to defeat the bill.

State Sen. Dale Schultz has been publicly undecided since a week ago. Late last week, he sounded awfully critical of the bill -- and indeed, tired of the whole controversy -- in a radio interview: "All I know is, we're not talking. We're wasting valuable time about collective bargaining, which I don't ever remember being a part of the last election whatsoever. But most of all, you know, to me, this just looks like the classic overreach we see every two years." Eric Kleefeld

Scott Walker: Could he be the most polarizing governor in America? By Craig Gilbert of the Journal Sentinel

http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/117577493.html (full article)

According to Craig Gilbert of the Journal Sentinel "When Republican Scott Walker got elected governor last fall, most Wisconsinites didn’t have very strong feelings about him.
But in a matter of weeks, that’s all changed. Walker has not only become a far more polarizing figure than he was last fall. But his polling numbers are beginning to set him apart from other governors around the country.
What does it mean to be polarizing?"

Anonymous: the new face of cyber-war

Anonymous, or Anon, is a movement made up of a number of nameless internet activists from around the world.

For many, the 'hacktivist' group has become the face of the new cyber-war against oppressive governments and all-powerful corporates. Others say the group's actions are reckless.

Describing itself as "the freedom of speech, the freedom of information and the freedom of expression taken to a logical extreme," Anon says it breaks laws, but only for the greater good.
