Olbrich Gardens in May

Looks a little greener in May than in January, doesn't it? You can barely see Lake Monona for all the foliage.

We dare trod the forests of Wisconsin!

They whom we shall not name, they are attracted to red, and they dwell in the forest. They are not here yet so we trod the forest and here we have some photos of the outings during this brief safe period against them:

The woman who wouldn't listen

Not one single economist thinks that the gas tax suspension for the summer is a good idea. There are economists who will support anything, left, right, up, down. But NONE will support suspending the gas tax hike for the summer. Hillary Clinton isn't listening to the 'elite opinion' of economists. 'Elite opinion' of economists. She isn't going to listen to people who all agree despite any other differences they might have. Left-wing, right-wing, she won't listen to people who have thought about these sorts of things and think its a bad idea. And if she become president through her magic she'll make it save us all and buy us a puppy too!

Why should we elect someone president who will not listen to experts - even when all of the experts regardless of political persuasion agree??? We already have a president who believes in magic - do we need another?

Suspending the gas tax will save us all something like 30 cents a gallon so be like $30 over the summer. Great... And we'll be in even more debt too! McCain supports this crap too. At least Obama doesn't support this bull.

Here's the Daily Show on this:

Here's Hillary via CNN:
In a fight that could also influence working-class voters, Obama and Clinton have sparred over Clinton's proposal to suspend the federal gas tax during the summer.

Clinton says she backs the tax holiday despite the "elite opinion" of economists who have widely called the tax holiday an ineffective method to lower record gas prices. 

"I'm not going to put my lot in with economists," Clinton told George Stephanopolous on ABC's 'This Week' on Sunday after he asked her to name a single economist supporting her plan. "If we actually did it right, if we had a president who used all the tools of the presidency, we would design it in such a way that it would be implemented effectively."
