Kleefisch Family Not Quite Feeling the Love

Undoubtedly it’s tough playing the role of a right wing ultra-conservative on the campaign stump and then having something quite the opposite be part of your real personal life. During the last gubernatorial campaign, Daniel Bice, in his No Quarter column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, discussed just such a dichotomy in the family life […]

Update: Where Is Sean Duffy?

One of my favorite items in the Sunday Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is the Congress Following the Vote feature. There is always a short description of major bills voted on in Congress the previous week with a breakdown on how the Wisconsin contingent voted.

Something Overlooked In the Kleefisch Child Support Bill

An Open Letter to Texas State Senator, Jane Nelson (R) – (VIDEO)

Dear “Honorable” Jane Nelson:

It simply amazes me, that folks such as yourself, spent the entire day of testimony regarding this particular bill, (SB 1), denigrating women using every single slur known to man, and yet, when a woman testifies before you, exercising HER freedom to speak, you censor her by calling in the security […]

Assembly Democrats Have No Spine: What Budget?

Although it doesn’t always pay to tilt at windmills, the decision by Wisconsin Assembly Democrats and Assembly Minority Leader Representative Peter Barca to refrain from offering a single amendment to the biennial budget is downright perplexing. On the one hand I can understand the futility of offering up amendments that have absolutely no chance of […]

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR PRESIDENT:

Dear Mr. President:

It is apparent that the Republican party continues to marginalize what can best be described as your historical victory this past November.
