The most unsettling prospect with Gov. Scott Walker is the notion that he might actually believe what he is saying about the budget he is proposing for Wisconsin.Just as president Obama is responsible for the national economy, Walker owns the state economy of Wisconsin. For all of his talk about creating private industry jobs, Walker and the state repugican cabal have failed as miserably as the national repugican cabal, and all of their far-right buddies in Europe. The repugican cabal's austerity is a recipe for disaster – a fact that Wisconsin had to find out the hard way.
When Walker assumed the governorship two years ago, Wisconsin was holding its own economically. Job growth was competitive with neighboring states and the nation.
No more. Since Walker began implementing his austerity agenda, growth has stalled.
The first such picture was constructed with nothing more than pen and ink. Gage’s doctor John Harlow sketched his skull which Harlow had acquired after the patient’s death.Since then, scientists have constructed more and more bizarre images to illustrate the devastation to Gage's brain. See them, with explanations, in a post at Mind Hacks.
This Gage is forever fleshless, the iron stuck mid-flight, the shattered skull frozen as it fragments.
Harlow’s sketch is the original and the originator. The first impression of Gage’s immortal soul.
Gage rested as this rough sketch for over 100 years but he would rise again.
