Tom Tiffany wins ” Lie of the Week “

Hurley blogger and former Iron County district attorney Tony Stella has awarded tantrumesque Tom Tiffany his ” Lie of the Week ” designation for poor Tommy’s whiny insistence that the Environmental Protection Agency killed GTac’s always questionable and unlikely open pit iron mine in the Penokee Hills. Missing from Tiffany’s weepy lamentations is the fact […]

The Big Tent Party

Great news everyone! I’m told there are still hotel rooms available at the Potawatomie Convention Center in Milwaukee, where the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will hold their annual convention in June, for only $159.00 a night!

So if you’re driving to the convention from northern Wisconsin, like I am, and you can take Friday […]

The Political Consultant Class

Ever since Jason Rae announced his run for DPW Chair, Nation Consulting, the firm Rae works for, has come under fire from a variety of bloggers, Facebookers, and other social media mavens disgusted with what is viewed as extremely poor messaging on the part of Democratic candidates.

Hey Kids! We Could Open A Thrift Shop And Save Our University!

This Is What Democracy Looks Like

How many media outlets in the United States reported that last month, December 2014, 12,000 Chilean Walmart workers went on strike? Yes, you read me correctly: twelve thousand of them. Did any of you hear about this from CNN, Fox, NBC, ABC, The New York Times, anywhere in the media?

Look, I get it that […]

FDA Advises Against Keepsake and Elective Fetal Ultrasounds

No one is really sure what the effects of ultrasounds are on fetal development. Although considered safe the FDA is now advising against keepsake and elective ultrasounds.

So what is the State of Wisconsin’s liability if their forced ultrasounds convince a woman to give to a child but later congenital defects or illnesses are blamed […]

Ending Ted Cruz’s Presidential Campaign Right Here:

For the past seven or eight years we’ve been told that an American male born to an American mother and a foreign born father in a foreign country is ineligible to be President of the United States. Without the largesse of Mr. Donald Trump, few of us would know this simple fact about America.

What The Heck Is This Doing In A Budget Bill?

From Bloomberg:

Congress is considering adding to a year-end budget deal a provision to roll back safety rules aimed at ensuring truck drivers get enough rest, a measure U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said should be rejected.

What the heck is this doing in a budget bill? I thought Congress wasn’t going to pull this […]
