It is good news.
Does My Wallet Make Me Look Fat? It shouldn't because Obama is taking all my money.
Didn't the state congress have enough votes for a veto over-ride?

Good luck to all of you good folks in Wisconsin.

Some of Wisconsin's politicians wanted to play both sides of the fence. Several voted for the CCW law, but did not vote to override the veto.

The Greek poli meaning many.
