The reason why these two analogies are necessary is to buttress the shallowness of voters of Wisconsin who did not care a hoot about the consequences of their electoral action and voted anyways in such a cavalier manner for a man who now wants their blood; and for reasons that at best will be considered mundane. Why is Icheoku cultivating these grounds one may ask? It is just to show that it is more likely than not that Governor Scott Walker came into office riding on the back of such voters as mentioned above:- people who were persuaded not by what they heard then governor candidate Walker say or promise; but for such other petty considerations including to "show those Dems?" Now they are reaping the whirlwind which they sowed and should therefore not be heard saying that Governor Walker is a tyrant. Icheoku says the people of Wisconsin should just quit complaining and savor the consequences of their electoral action or lack thereof that produced Governor Walker.
The book of Bible tells us in 1Kings12:11 of King Rehobam who thundered to the people of Israelites who came to inquire how his reign will be that if his father chastised them with whips he will chastise them with scorpions; and that he will add to their burden and so has Governor Walker added to the already laden-workers of Wisconsin; turning them into literally "slaves" of corporate employers who will now toss them around with offer of minimum wages commensurate to Chinese workers or their Mexican counterparts. All these would have been averted were the voters of Wisconsin smart enough to know that election has consequences and that votes count and matter. They had all the time in the world to have mobilized their unions to get out the votes for the more peoples orientated Democratic candidate Tom Barrett to succeed outgoing Democratic Jim Doyle; but no they were nonchalant and apathetic, cowered by Tea Party aggression and now they must reap the resulting tornado.
A Governor Walker who campaigned on "true reform" and proudly told the state's senate that "this is our time" and that his mandate was for a true reform towards solving the state's budget woes. Icheoku believes that Governor Walker has now truly sold out to business as he stated earlier that "Wisconsin is open for business. At least the man keeps his promises and men are supposed to have balls. Icheoku believes that were Governor Walker in the White House, that there would have been "public option" in the Health-Care Reform Law; that Guantanamo would have been closed and that the financial reform would have been more far-reaching. All it requires is the mindset and resolve to go all the way no matter how long it took or put in another way "my way or the highway" as the anti-Union bill soon to become law has shown. Icheoku strongly believes that there is more anti-people initiatives from where the union bursting anti-union bill came and Wisconsinites should better gird their loins and take it through the rear like real adults. Next time Wisconsin, during next election circle, know who your real friends are and vote for DEMOCRATS as they will protect workers and the little guys more than the fat-cat republicans who want both cheap labor and reduced cost of doing business. Remember someone's profit is another's loss and for them to grow fat, some people somewhere have to be on diet; get Icheoku's drift?
Icheoku says the manoeuvre in Wisconsin was not a desperation move, it is rather a well orchestrated rug-pull from underneath the fleeing democrats by a more well geared political operatives and they chose to deem as read a bill which they authored and thus dispensed with the need to read it all over again. To put t in a short terse two-word sentence - THEY WON and the union lost! It is a lesson in electioneering politics which teaches that election has consequences and that unions must be proactive during elections and not to threaten general strike for something that would have been averted by intense and passionate campaign and get-out the votes operations. The people of Wisconsin lost Icheoku when they did not vote in their affable longtime Democratic Senator Feingold and you wonder who these unions now expect to come to their aid or is Michael Moore that influential? They deserve it all, what they are getting int he hands of the Republicans controlling Wisconsin.
