The election in 2010 has given the conservatives the majority in all branches of Wisconsin state government, including the State Supreme Court.
During this time, certain legislation has been passed on a majority vote and in some cases, with little or no discussion or hearings. Presently, the Senate has lost its majority by one seat that may be overturned in the November election.
That is not to say whether the legislation passed was good, bad, or otherwise. Rather, it was the manner by which it was enacted, implying
it’s my way or the highway policy.
Our public officials have all taken an oath of office wherein they have sworn to uphold the state and national Constitution and to serve ALL
the people of Wisconsin.
If that is the case, why is such a large segment of our state population unhappy with the way the 2011 legislation was introduced and enacted?
Many voters are puzzled over who our legislators are really representing.
Many of us here at the King Veterans Home are concerned about the removal of our door locks.
No doubt, it means our loss of privacy and security is at stake.
There is little evidence to support the need for this action, but powers at the state level have decided that it is for our own good, whether we like it or not.
I was under the impression that when I was honorably discharged in the mid 1940s that I had left that unquestioned authority behind.
I never minded then because there were valid reasons for those orders.
Careful thought will resolve the necessity of removing door locks.
