You are living in dreamland and making up stuff.

One minute liberals claim Bush caused massive losses for peoples pensions and you tell us you made a killing.

Which way is it? Or are you the only smart liberal who made money in the stock market?

Disney World awaits you.

It will never stick and if they tried I can see the lawyers grinning from ear to ear thinking about how much they can sue the State of Wis for. Looks like the Repubs are getting even more desperate than they already were. I think they never thought the issue would bring so much negative attention and would have to assume several are thinking their own jobs may be in jeopardy.

They dont have the authority to arrest them, but they do have the authority to bring them back to do their job.. This is standard for all states, and the federal government..

There have already been previous court rulings to this fact.

Fitzgerald also cited a Wednesday circuit court ruling in Oconto County that found Democratic Sen. Jim Holperin had violated his duty to attend Senate sessions, but that only the Senate had the right to enforce the rule that he be there. A citizen in Holperin's district, who was also represented by Troupis, brought the legal action.

The sergeant at arms of the Senate is authorized, under the state Constitution, to “take any and all steps, with or without force and assistance from police, to bring the senators back.”

He is not, i am one of those that lost big in my retirement under Bush including almost half in his last few months. The first 7 seven years under Bush my funds did grow but very slowly. Now under Obama, in 2 short years I have regained most of what I lost.
