Anyway, with Democrats complicity and the seeming ambivalence of an EPA in upheaval, Walker’s Extremist Mining Bill readies Wisconsin for the Grand Liquidation of its endowments.

Sadly Wisconsin’s destruction will most likely be carried out just to concentrate the wealth of an out-of-state entity as a favor for a campaign contribution. Any wages generated in the boondoggle will be a temporary drop in the bucket in comparison to the long-term environmental remediation costs the State will be stuck with.

Obama\Fracking\$222,000 Bathroom?! Walker\Mining\$500,000 Kitchen?!

Who’s your enemy?

Sign the Petition to stop Walker’s Mining Disaster.

Plus by signing the Petition you’ll be helping to make Republicans look like even bigger even than they already are!

Get the Chris Hedges/Joe Sacco book from Amazon. Amazon has a good summary plus a video with a few Sacco drawings and Chris Hedges speaking. Reminds me of James Agee and Walker Evan's book "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" from years back.

Book Description

Publication Date: June 12, 2012

“Two years ago, Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges and award-winning cartoonist and journalist Joe Sacco set out to take a look at the sacrifice zones, those areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, and technological advancement. They wanted to show in words and drawings what life looks like in places where the marketplace rules without constraints, where human beings and the natural world are used and then discarded to maximize profit. Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt is the searing account of their travels.”
