Responsible? Who, me?

Back in third grade, my classmates and I placed little slips of paper with the titles of books we had read into envelopes stapled to a board in the classroom. We had stars placed on the envelopes for every ten slips of paper. Being of a competitive nature even then, I wanted to see how […]

Solving The Issues With The Veteran’s Administration Medical Care

Since the major combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan started winding down, there have been repeated and unsolved issues with providing adequate and timely healthcare for our veterans. Despite repeated assurances and varied lip service out of Washington, things just don’t seem to be getting better. Even with new rules allowing vets who live beyond […]

John McCain Goes Stone Cold Tone Deaf

Last week President Obama visited a Veteran’s Administration hospital in Phoenix AZ. A hospital that has been the focus of issues with VA hospitals and healthcare. A hospital that is a long way from being ‘fixed’.

Senator John McCain (R – Arizona) was one of the other elected officials present during the presidents visit. Senator […]

Walking the Talk

Ever since Scott Fitzgerald announced his intent to ramrod so called right to work legislation through the state Senate, I’ve seen a lot of social media/blog comments asking where the DPW is in all of this, and while I can’t speak for Mike Tate, Jason Rae, Joe Wineke or anyone else in the DPW Chair […]

Right To Work Isn’t About Freedom In The Work Place Says Fitzgerald!

The proponents of Right to Work (at your co-workers expense) legislation continually chant that it’s about freedom for workers…despite union representation being voted on by a majority of their co-workers…the individual should be able to opt out of that. But we all know it’s about union busting.

And so does House Speaker Robin Vos and […]

Governor Walker Already Reneges On UW Budget Proposal

As part of Governor Walker’s budget proposal to reduce state support of the University of Wisconsin System by $300 million, the university is supposed to gain additional flexibility in operations and the expiration of the tuition freeze in 2017.

Under Walker’s proposal this year, the Legislature would have no ability to stop the university from […]

Serving Wisconsin: Retiring Senators Offer Wisdom From Senator Vinehout

This email missive from State Senator Kathleen Vinehout arrived in my in box yesterday. It’s a little wisdom and maybe a bit of foreboding about our future under the dome in Madison. But as we turn another page on politics in Wisconsin, I thought it worth sharing with you!

“There is a yearning outside the […]

Right To Work In The Badger State

Anyone reading this blog won’t be surprised to hear that I am vehemently opposed to Right To Work legislation. Nor that I am not particularly happy about the events from the past week or so that have lead to this particular blog.

The first shot across the bows of Wisconsin labor came on Monday December […]

The White House Feeds Into the Ebola Hysteria With A Czar

Kow towing to the stench of hysteria on Capitol Hill, President Obama today appointed an Ebola Czar. Really?? He’s a well respected medico well versed in exotic and infectious diseases, right? Well no, not exactly. He’s a ‘respected’ bureaucrat with ties to the White House…no really!

In his White House briefing Friday, press secretary […]

Energy Independence? Bull*lone*y!

One of my post election predictions is that President Obama will approve the Keystone XL pipeline on or after November 5, 2104.

It just seems to fit with the current oil trends in the US:

U.S. Crude Oil Exports Hit a 15-Year Monthly High:

The United States exported 268,000 barrels of crude oil a […]
