Impeach Schumacher

Postby harrissimo » Tue Jun 03, 2008 10:54 am

We don't need screwball fascists like Schumacher on our city council. He is a waste of toilet paper. This guy needs to be removed. Is there anyway to do it? Anyone want to join me in starting a "Get Rid Of Schumacher" movement?

Google "Wisconsin recall procedures". It's a pdf link that I had trouble copying and pasting, but it should be your first google result.

There are a couple of problems with your suggestion Jason.

I don't live in his district and do not want to move.

I have no desire to be an alderperson and probably would be pretty bad at it and I doubt that I could win.

But Schumacher did want to be an Alderperson and from what I have seen so far I do not like.

Tell me Jason, what do you think of Schumacker's performance as an alder?

I don't follow the city council closely enough to have an informed opinion. But I do know this: The most effective way of unseating an alderperson who has not been found guilty of misconduct is to beat him or her at the polls. If you're not willing to do it yourself, there are other ways including volunteering for his opponent in the next election, donating money, helping to recruit an opponent, etc.

Incidentally, one might find using hyperbole against someone with whom you disagree politically, particularly when you don't support your argument in any way, to be a form of fascism in itself. You also might find that labeling someone with a law-and-order agenda as a "fascist" is counter-productive. Crime, particularly the kind that is fueled by alcohol, is seen as a problem in Madison by a large (and, evidently, growing) number of voters. Certainly, engaging in pointed rhetoric to address that problem is expected. But going from zero to 100 is only going to push observers to side with someone who has a more reasonable tone.

Just because it happens doesn't mean I have to participate in it.

Konkel, your willingness to obsess over fact twisting until you think you've "won" does not mean people don't understand what you are up to. It means you sacrifice great amounts of time, typing endless bullshit on blogs and forums, exhausting most people. You participate in forum typey wars and usually just end up exposing a gaping hole. Your own.

So take your smart ass remark and stick it up your ass.

I think open wheel racing is here to stay.
