Since the announcement by retired Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim that the John Doe investigation around members of Governor Scott Walker’s former County Executive staff was closed, we saw exaggerated weeping and gnashing of teeth on the left and gloating on right…well nothing in the statement from Judge Nettesheim would indicate that either party is [...]
Though this has nothing to do with our typical politically-based commentary, this is definitely worth taking a few minutes of your time to read. A few weeks after their first encounter, Richard returned, this time alone. He explained that he and his wife had divorced, but he was ready to move on. Then he asked [...]
On Friday, Milwaukee County Sheriff (and general laughingstock) David Clarke released a new public service announcement advocating for residents of Milwaukee County to arm themselves because 9-1-1 is no longer their best option.

I can’t own a nuclear weapon. I can’t own a rocket propelled grenade. I can’t own a machine gun.*
So when you tell me that prohibiting the sale or ownership of another classification of firearm is severely restricting your rights to bear arms under the second amendment…well…I say baloney! Banning semi-automatic weapons or assault rifles [...]
Friends of mine were shopping at a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Kenosha yesterday when they noticed employees removing guns from the shelves. Certain guns are coming down from the shelves in other Wisconsin locations, too. Staff at a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store in Madison confirmed they will no longer sell Mrs machine rifles, but [...]
From Jud Lounsbury at Uppity Wisconsin comes this little gem of Republican Gov. Scott Walker claiming ignorance of the felonious criminal political activity of his Deputy Chief of Staff during Walker’s time as Milwaukee County Executive.
Scott Walker’s claim that he was completely ignorant of Kelly Rindfleisch’s criminal political activity – activity that Walker’s gubernatorial [...]
This is worth a read… Investing in addiction and mental health treatment, instead of prison, for nonviolent offenders would likely lower crime, strengthen communities and save the state millions of dollars annually, according to a study released this week by a coalition pushing to expand Wisconsin’s drug courts and other alternatives-to-prison programs.
