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 [...]

Kshama Sawant responds to Obama’s State of the Union Address

You gotta love the sheer moxie and courage of Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant, who took it upon herself last night to give the socialist response to President Obama’s State of the Union address.

 

Defender of Free Speech: Governor Scott Walker

After the hostilities and arrests and mistreatment of Wisconsin citizens under the dome in the Capitol Rotunda this past year…over citizens exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and free association, whoda thunk that the Governor was such a protector of the right to Free Speech. I bet it’s a big surprise to the Solidarity [...]

The False Nation of Afghanistan!

It’s been out of the news for a week or so now…but the US and Afghanistan finally completed negotiations on the continued presence of US troops in Afghanistan past the official end of American participation in hostilities at the end of 2014. I don’t think I need to recap all of the back and forth [...]

Latest Job Numbers Are a Boost for the Democrats in 2014, But Not for the People of Wisconsin

Scott Walker had a bad week. Or course he is too self-absorbed to admit or possibly even acknowledge that things are not looking very good for the state of Wisconsin.

The latest jobs numbers are out from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, and they look pretty good…for the Democratic candidate for Governor. From June [...]

Breaking: Is Bill Williams a wanted man?

Posted just this morning on the Facebook page of Citizens Concerned about the proposed Penokee mine is a potentially game changing article from a Spanish publication, lainformacion.com, suggesting that Gogebic Taconite president Bill Williams may be wanted in Spain for crimes against the environment and damage to public property. Here’s the Google translation directly from [...]

Ron Johnson’s Approval Rating at 28%

The latest Marquette Poll shows that Ron Johnson’s approval rating is at a meager 28%. Johnson rode into office on a wave of anti-incumbent, anti-progress Tea Party voters in 2010. He defeated three-term Senator and progressive icon Russ Feingold in a stunning upset. Although Johnson was leading in the polls, many progressives and media figures [...]

Polling Gives Democrats Several Angles

The recent polling out of Marquette University should give hope to those who want to oust Scott Walker in 2014. The polling is about two weeks old and shows that the race is a statistical tie. Mary Burke, the only declared candidate, polls at 45% compared to Walker’s 47%.

Just days after Burke declared that [...]

Governor Scott Walker and Abbie Hoffman

I know that many of our readers can hardly wait the remaining week until Governor Scott Walker’s book, “Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge,” is publicly released. If you don’t want your anticipation undone, don’t click this link to Bill Lueders’ (Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism) view of the book at Urban Milwaukee…but [...]

So what’s going on in Cudahy? Don’t ask Ald. Randy Hollenbeck.

Back when he was running for Alderman, ultra-conservative Randy Hollenbeck assured his potential constituents that if elected he’d use his blog on CudahyNOW to inform residents of what was going on within Cudahy’s city government.

I will still keep “the people” informed of what is going on in the city. I will come home after [...]
