    For the second time, a Wisconsin judge has ordered WI officials to stop implementation of Gov Scott Walker's controversial union bargaining law. We'll see how it plays out in the state Supreme Court; but for now, the law is on hold.

    Walker is TRYING to play nice. He doesn't wanna take the asshole option, but he could: That judge is a COUNTY judge. Appeals go UP, not down. A state law can't be overturned by a county court. Walker can at anytime say "Screw you bitch, you're a county judge, this is a state law" but he's trying to lay low now that it's passed and not do that.

    That would be like the state passing a 70mph speed limit, then a county judge saying "Thats not constitutional, our county will have a 150mp speed limit on all highways." Well, guess what? The speed limit is still gonna be 70. The county can't overrule a state law. Just like a state can't overturn a federal law. We learned that in Arizona, right?

    Obama's situation is different. At least one federal judge ruled on Obamacare. Federal judges can rule on federal laws. But county judges can't overturn state laws. They can make any ruling they want, and whine about it all they want, and demand all they want. But they simply can't do it. A county can't overrule a state speed limit, for example.

    Personally I think Walker should ignore her just like Obama ignored his two court orders, and one contempt order.
