I don’t ever want to hear Madison right-wing radio host Vicki McKenna lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility:

Vicki McKenna can't pay her bills

For what it’s worth, Vicki McKenna, aka Vicki Pyzynski, also hates paying her utility bills, as she’s been taken to court twice in the past two years for failing to pay her utility bills.

    Oh, you don’t have to deal with medical billing under your cushy healthcare insurance, do you?

    I have friends that were sent to collection, and I was threatened, when the insurer and the billing group couldn’t come to agreement on a code. I’m not saying that’s what happening here, but I will share a banker once told me years ago no one looks at medical bills/suits in determining credit because the system is so flawed.

    Now, you mentioned utility bills. Care to document/expand?

    • Zach W says:

      Cindy, I have to deal with medical billing, despite what the talking points tell you.

      Further, do you know what it takes for an unpaid bill to end up going to court? It takes an awful lot.

  2. Cindy K,

    No one looks at medical bills when determining credit? Care to document, expand? Maybe name the alleged banker?

    Are you sure the person you spoke to is really a banker? Maybe he/she is actually a loan shark, or a sub-prime lender?

    Pardon the redundancy.

  3. observer says:

    They’re right in a simple ccap search, Cindy. One judgment against her, one filed but then dismissed upon receiving a letter stating she paid her bills. Oh, and one other judgment against her from a bank. This is all in addition, of course, to her drunk & disorderly.

    “a banker once told me years ago no one looks at medical bills/suits in determining credit ” – Cindy K

    Wing-nuts will believe most anything.

    So typical of the tea party fiscal conservatives do as i say not as i do crowd. This is the same person who applauds as cleat channel lays off thousands and makes fun of erpenbach for not being rich. She typified the talk radio hate triumverate that are helping shape the state republican party platform. Good catch zach.

    IOKIYAR.

    This concludes another edition of simple answers to simple questions.

  7. squidknuckle says:

    So let me get this straight. You are dismissing the need for fiscal responsibility?

    • Zach W says:

      No, I’m dismissing Vicki McKenna’s credibility on issues of fiscal responsibility, given her own inability to keep her fiscal affairs in order.

  8. Whippet says:

    All of you, including the author, Cindy K is right, partially and the rest of you talking points liberals are wrong. Are any of you in the financial industry or are you just talking about things you know nothing about because you just think you’re all so smugly intelligent? 35 years in credit, collections and finance says she’s right about medical bills. Suits/judgments are taken seriously, medical collections are not. The only way they affect your ability to get credit is if they lower your credit score too much. Otherwise they are disregarded. Now, this concludes another edition of complex answers to something you obviously know nothing about.

    • JCG says:

      Suits/judgments are taken seriously…

      Uhhhhh. Yup. And the issue of the post is a suit/judgement (pssst…that’s what “judgement for money” in a circuit court lawsuit means, if you feel inclined to go back to the top and check the context that Zach posted).

      …medical collections are not. The only way they affect your ability to get credit is if they lower your credit score too much.

      Uhhhh, I suppose, sure, yes. The only way collections items affect your credit is if they affect your credit score. Indeed.

      “Donnie, you’re out of your element!!”

  9. Whippet says:

    Now, about that documentation on utility bills?

    • That’s certainly authoritative. A picture of a dog lecturing everyone about how things are in the financial industry.

      Well done, Fido.

    • observer says:

      Whippet, do a ccap search. The utility bill cases AND the other judgment by a bank against her are right there for you or everyone else to see. This was offered up before.

  10. John says:

    I think it is pretty pathetic of Blogging Blue to be such a stalker.
    When running a blog, you need to leave personal information aside.
    But Zach, what is your full name so we check on your records and personal information? Maybe like a criminal record for stalking?

    • Zach W says:

      I’d love to hear you explain how posting public information about a public figure on a blog constitutes stalking.

      As for my criminal record, it’s clean as a whistle, which is more than can be said for Vicki McKenna.

    • Zach W says:

      Oh, and if you’re going to come here and make demands about my real name so you can check my record, maybe you shouldn’t hide behind a pseudonym.

      Thanks Dan!

    • Jan Tessier says:

      What’s pathetic is right-wing lying nutjobs who continue to post bullshit on lefty blogs while hiding their identities. You’d wet your pants if one of us met you face-to-face.

  11. Whippet says:

    I thought I’d send Fido so that maybe you could understand. But alas, Fido’s intelligence surpasses yours.

  12. Jan Tessier says:

    I wish that I had saved the e-mail exchange between Vicki McKenna and myself that took place a few years ago. There was a news story she was ranting about, and it became clear, after about 30 seconds into her rant, that she knew nothing about it. Not only did she not know the facts of the story, but she (Surprise! Surprise!) lied about the particulars of the case. I e-mailed her the facts, along with several links of attribution, and explained to her that it makes for a better argument if you actually know what you are talking about and don’t make shit up about it. I received a series of short, stupid, SOPHOMORIC, and just plain idiotic responses from her—complete with typos, misspelled words, and the occasional capital letter misplaced here and there. It was like reading a text message from an angry 13 year old—only without the intelligence of a 13 year old.

    • Whippet says:

      Rich. You say “don’t make shit up about it” and you claim she is “sophomoric?” And you make these claims with no proof of the exchange. classic.

      Also, how do we know this Vikki Pyzynski is Vikki McKenna?

      • Zuma Bound says:

        @ Whippet[Good]

        First of all, Whippet[Good], why do you care so much about McKenna?

        If you’re asking questions like, “[H]ow do we know this Vikki Pyzynski is Vikki McKenna”, you clearly aren’t a local. So, why do you care so much about her to demagogue Jan in the way that you did?

        Second of all, it appears that your partisan blinders got in the way of accurately reading what Jan had to say.

        Jan said the following about what she had written in an e-mail to McKenna:

        “I e-mailed her the facts, along with several links of attribution, and explained to her that it makes for a better argument if you actually know what you are talking about and don’t make shit up about it. I received a series of short, stupid, SOPHOMORIC, and just plain idiotic responses from her—complete with typos, misspelled words, and the occasional capital letter misplaced here and there.”

        In pertinent part, dawg, Jan was telling McKenna that it would make for a better argument on her part if McKenna didn’t just make shit up. It wasn’t a self-reference.

        So, Sir Barks-A-Lot, reading comprehension must NOT be a strong suit with you, huh?

        Then, in an exercise of truly misplaced sarcasm, you connected that misreading/misunderstanding of yours to the fact that Jan, in part, called McKenna “sophomoric”.

        Given Jan’s desciption of McKenna’s series of e-mail responses, “sophomoric” seems an apt adjective. Do you have ANY understanding of what “sophomoric” means, Whippet? It doesn’t appear so. Your “point” was entirely misplaced.

        In any event, Whippet, if you have trouble “keeping up” with the big boys and girls when you read something, maybe you should reconsider speaking up about what you have read. Well, you might, at the very least, want to keep the misguided, arrogant, wingnut sarcasm in check.

        As they say, “It is better to be thought the fool/douchebag, than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.”

        Words to live by for someone like you, Whippet.

        Jan had an e-mail exchange with McKenna which, for understandable reasons, she didn’t hold on to. Inasmuch as she has always been honest and straightforward here, on what basis, other than rank partisanship, do you question her veracity and integrity now?

        The only “classic” thing here is your knee-jerk defense of someone with whom you are clearly unfamiliar for no better reason than the fact that you and she share “citizenship” in The Wingnut Nation.

        Jan is a Rhodes Scholar compared to you, Whippet. Keep that in mind that next time that you leave the echo chamber, and feel your wingnut oats.

        Try to remember, no matter how much it galls you, that the progressives whom you encounter “out here” are far more intelligent than the likes of you.

        Jan Tessier is a case in point.

        • Whippet says:

          Wow, that’s some major rationalization! You do know what rationalization is, don’t you? I didn’t think so.

          And I see that asking questions of such an intelligent group of people is just too much to ask. After all, when you have no answers you typically resort to the “progressives are so much smarter than everyone else” talking point. Yeah, how’s that Hope and change progressive working out for you? Got any better ideas on how you can do it so much better than Marx, Stalin, Fidel and Huuuugo? You’re intelligent? Based on what? Dreaming of a Progressive America based on what model? California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan, etc? And until recently, Wisconsin? Wingnut? Talking points much. Face it, the lefts ideas are proven failures. Got anything new smartypants?

          And can someone answer the question?

          • Zuma Bound says:

            @ Whippet{Good]

            It’s always entertaining when a wingnut froths at the mouth like that.

            All that comes out is an incoherent word salad.

            Well, dude, you didn’t really address what I had to say about the unfortunate remarks you directed at Jan, did you? All you did was deflect, and end up spewing some indecipherable, stream-of-consciousness, rightwing tripe that began with a big word that I have a feeling you don’t understand and the suggestion that I was guilty of it.

            Since I didn’t “rationalize” anything, I have absolutely no idea where you were going with that first paragraph of yours. But I suppose that you get that a lot, don’t ya, Whippet[Good]?

            You were off base with Jan. You’re off base with me.

            Care to try making a coherent point, Whippet[Good]. Come on, push your clearly significant limitations, and give it a shot.

            Start with addressing my point about how wrong-headed the comment that you directed to Jan Tessier was. Then, try explaining my purported “rationalization”. What was I rationalizing, and how did I rationalize it?

            Honestly, I suspect that you just used a big word that you truly don’t understand in a not unusual display of defensive and uninformed wingnut arrogance.

            But, hey, I ‘d love to see you prove me wrong.

            More erudition, Whippet{Good], less froth, a’ite? Maybe we can have a “rational” exchange. But first, you owe Jan an apology for the arrogant cluelessness you showed in responding to her comment.

          • Whippet,

            A progressive model based on North Dakota.

            They have the only state owned bank in the United States of America, which is socialism, and they have the lowest unemployment rate in the nation.

            And they have a budget surplus.

            Thanks for asking.

    “IOKIYAR.

    This concludes another edition of simple answers to simple questions.”

    As always. Vicki’s just a typical GOP with projection issues. Her 15 minutes are fading fast, because the whole “woman mouthing macho items for Viagra addicts” thing is soooo 2000s.

  14. Whippet says:

    “I received a series of short, stupid, SOPHOMORIC, and just plain idiotic responses from her” which of course means that Ms. McKenna is stupid, SOPOMORIC, and an idiot since that is the description of her responses.

    Her own use of the word “make that shit up” is evidence of Jan’s own SOPHOMORIC behavior. I didn’t think she was using a self-reference but it turned out to be when she resorted to using it to describe what she felt to be lies. Maybe you need a course in reading comprehension and a dictionary, but then people as smart as you need not bother with such unimportant things because it’s easier to just “make shit up.”

    So I can continue dissecting your imagined take-down but it isn’t worthy of my intelligence. See, two can play at your little game. Too bad your game only makes you more the fool.

    No answer to the question yet?

    oh, and I love you tolerantly intolerant liberals who claim to be such free thinkers and instead all you spew is vile and name calling at those who disagree with you. But then that what people do who are desperate and devoid of new ideas and solutions.

    By the way, you appear to have no idea what a rational conversation would exist of. Bye Bye. Your little cocoon seems to be quite closed off from reality. Sure you’re not a Ron Paul supporter? 🙂

  15. Zuma Bound says:

    @ Whippet[Good]

    “So I can continue dissecting your imagined take-down but it isn’t worthy of my intelligence.”

    (*laughing*) Objection. In legal parlance, your statement assumes facts not in evidence. You have yet to demonstrate that you possess any real intelligence.

    And, by the way, I wasn’t trying to “take [you] down”. Just trying to straighten out your bullshit.

    That said, dude, trying to understand most of what you have to say is like trying to nail jello to a tree.

    One thing is clear from what you have written, though. You definitely suffer from a delusional sense of self.

    So, Whippet[Good], we’re done here. I’m not going to waste any more of my time on the likes of you.

    I doubt that anyone else here is buying what you’re selling, but, hey, at least you’re still a legend in your own mind, huh?

    HA! This was a very entertaining read. You are all idiots.
