The Koch Brothers think it’s hilarious when their dumb puppets have to go face huge, angry crowds of political opponents. Remember the movie Trading Places?

A Wisconsin judge has temporarily blocked Scott Walker’s anti-workers bill from taking effect, saying the Wisconsin legislators’ passage of the law was likely illegal as it violated the state’s Open Meetings law. In other words, Walker’s errand for the Koch Brothers seems to have failed, at least in the short term. The judge also said [...]

Here’s the news bulletin: “Wisconsin lawmakers have voted to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from [...]
