Governor Walker can find a better solution: A fly that has no one to advise it, follows the corpse into the grave

The protests in the Arab world have certainly inspired the people of Wisconsin. The dispute over a controversial budget bill that will affect teachers and public employees has brought thousands of people in the street to protest. American politics is so polarized that the politicians aren’t working together. The Democrats have chosen to hide instead of participating in the vote. It is unfortunate that, in bad times, those who pay the price are those who give the most: teachers and fire fighters, for example. For sure, Governor Scott Walker is not Mubarak or Ben Ali, but he can be forced to step back and find another way to solve this crisis. Vox populi, vox dei. Otherwise, he will pay heavily during the next governor elections. As the Soninke of Gambia say, “A fly that has no one to advise it, follows the corpse into the grave.”
