Raspberry Razzle Dazzle
by Gabriel Constans
This is a favorite and legendary thirst-quencher from Wisconsin in the 1960s and 1970s. Folks used to drive long distances to obtain this sweet, fresh drink. Raspberries are reported to help cleanse the body of toxins, and also contain vitamins C and A.
Yield: 4 cups
1 cup fresh raspberries (or frozen if out of season)
2 cups vanilla pudding
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup filtered water
Place all the ingredients in a blender, and mix on medium speed for 50 to 60 seconds.
Your Broadway hands will come alive for the old razzle dazzle, as you pour this luscious drink into containers of your choice and serve with pizazz.
Scott Walker is at it again.
First the radical right-wing Wisconsin governor launched a surprise attack on workers’ rights, drawing a massive backlash from Wisconsin voters. Now he’s trying to roll back the clock on women’s rights in the workplace.
That’s right – just this Thursday, Walker repealed an Equal Pay law that made it easier for victims of wage discrimination to have their day in court.
Sign the DGA petition right now to tell Governor Walker that we will not let this latest assault on women’s rights prevail without a fight.
You might think a million signatures on Walker’s doorstep demanding a recall election would make the Koch brothers’ favorite governor think twice before pushing a radical right-wing agenda – an agenda that makes it easier for employers to discriminate against female workers and other groups.
You might think that Walker would care that Wisconsin women make 75 cents for every dollar that their male counterparts make.
You might think that, but you’d be wrong.
Join the thousands of people who – like me – are outraged that Governor Walker repealed this important Equal Pay law.
If we don’t stop Scott Walker right now, Republican governors across the country will follow his lead. Add your name and help us fight back.
First it was workers, now it’s women. Governor Walker’s rolling over our rights and on June 5, he’ll have to face the music.
We cannot let up now.
Thanks for your support,
Democratic Governors Association
