Campaign 16: We The People!

Sometime between the inauguration speech and the first ball, I would start pressuring Congress to replace the current motto, ‘In God We Trust’ with ‘We The People’!

Originally I thought this was just going to be a trivial add on to my thoughts on Campaign 16 and I would throw it out here during a […]

The #TonyRobinson decision – share your thoughts

Earlier today Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne announced his decision not to issue criminal charges against Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny after Officer Kenny shot and killed Tony Robinson, who was unarmed at the time of his death. According to reports, Officer Kenny alleged Robinson attacked him shortly after Officer Kenny made contact, resulting […]

Baltimore Orioles COO John Angelos gives eye-opening perspective on Baltimore riots

This is simply amazing, especially coming from the mouth of a corporate executive.

Read as John Angelos, the Chief Operating Officer of the Baltimore Orioles, responded to Baltimore sports-radio broadcaster Brett Hollander, who took to Twitter to argue that demonstrations that negatively impact the daily lives of fellow citizens are counter-productive. Brett, speaking only for […]

A Redneck Can Dream

I’ll warn you up front that this probably isn’t safe for work due to a whole lotta cussin’ going on, but this is one of the most inspiring rants I’ve ever seen on Youtube. For years my wife and I have been trying to convince Wisconsin Democrats that the white working class isn’t who we […]

How Wisconsin Should Select Its Chief Justice

Early last week I wrote a piece here on Blogging Blue about the proposed state constitutional amendment to change how the chief justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court is selected: Selecting A Chief Justice In The State Of Wisconsin.

The referendum is on this Tuesday’s ballot and I suggest that you vote NO on the […]

Selecting A Chief Justice In The State Of Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Constitution provides for a state supreme court of seven justices, each elected for a term of ten years. The justice with the longest tenure on the court is the chief justice.

In a move that many suggest is aimed at removing Justice Shirley Abrahamson from her role as Chief Justice, the GOP legislature […]

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 […]

US police annually kill over twice as many citizens as FBI reports

An investigation by the UK based Guardian has revealed that previous FBI figures for how many US citizens are killed annually by police fell way short of the actual mark.

While the figures are disturbing: an average of 928 people killed annually over a recent eight year period compared to an average of 383 […]

Wisconsin State Legislature Calls Extraordinary Session To Solve Critical Emergency!

The Wisconsin State Legislature is calling an extraordinary session next week to apparently fend off a statewide crisis. Something called Right To Work (at the expense of your co-workers) legislation demands that it be passed…oh…no…wait. This is an emergency? Isn’t that what extraordinary sessions are for?

Here is a primer on the difference between […]

Saudi Female Drivers Sent To Terrorism Court

In an act of civil disobedience, two women in Saudi Arabia defied an archaic cultural ban that prohibits females from driving a car and were arrested a month ago. They have been detained since and are about to get their day in court…but not in traffic court…or municipal court…but Saudi Arabia’s anti-terrorism court. WTF?

Two […]
