In Wisconsin, the Tiffany is not a gem

There was a time not that long ago that it would have been bad form in Wisconsin politics to be as openly subservient to special interests as is State Sen. Tom Tiffany, R-Hazelhurst, and this added, under-the-table example involving private timber cutting in state forests on top of his water carrying for Scott Walker, or conservative State Supreme Court justices, or wolf-for-sport hunters, or iron and sand mining interests - - here, or here, or here- - shows that Wisconsin under the GOP's complete control is now wide open for political business that undermines - - no pun intended - - core democratic, citizen-focused governance.

These legislators definitely need to become part time. They no longer openly legislate during their session and rarely meet in full session on bills or hold public hearings. They simply throw everything they want into the budget usually behind closed doors and during the wee hours of the morning! Their pay must be cut as the hours they spend in floor sessions in each Chamber is minimal.

We could use the state forests and parks to make toilet paper, lots of @sswipe and this could pay for having public parks. I support the Charnin-Andre State Park, Beach, & Campground!
