The Party of Lincoln?

I imagine some of you caught Bill Lueders’ article about the retirement of State Senator Dale Schultz (R – Richland Center) that was published yesterday at Urban Milwaukee titled ‘Say Goodbye to the Party of Lincoln’. Part of the article relates the story about the resolution passed at the Wisconsin Republican Party’s 6th Congressional District [...]

“The New World Horror” Fundraiser – A Film About Tea Party Zombies

So, we’re making a horror movie this summer about Tea Party zombies. Yeah, I know. Zombies are everywhere. Well this zombie movie is, hopefully, going to be different. It will have blobs, demons and of course, patriots. So unlike those Rants Without Pants videos you may have seen me on, we have decided to actually [...]

Sex, Lies and Common Core

I am working on another post related to the opposition of Common Core…but decided to put it aside after I got the email embedded below on Monday.

Common Core should be a boon to education in this country. It will set some standards on student achievement that make sense for math and English…the only [...]

Sean Duffy voted to cut heating assistance for low income Americans

Hey all you folks shivering up in the 7th congressional district and beyond, when you’re turning your thermostat down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit today and trying desperately to figure out how in the hell you’re going to pay $5.00 a gallon for propane, if you can find it at all, remember that Congressman Sean Duffy [...]

Outstanding Ignoramus of the Month.

This month’s award recognizing an outstanding achievement in rank ignorance is given to state Rep. Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton).

Loudenbeck, in response to a bill put forth by state Rep Melissa Sargent which would allow individual counties access to federal Affordable Care Act money to expand Medicaid for their respective residents, said she needs to [...]

Freedom of Speech vs., well, Freedom of Speech

This is indirectly about the Duck Dynasty ‘controversy’…and I was going to just let it play out because I don’t feel that pop culture and reality TV have much relevance to political discourse. But then two things happened: Leonard Pitts came out with an Op Ed piece that absolutely nailed the faux controversy surrounding Phil [...]

The States Must Unite

The November jobs report shows that the country exceeded expectations by creating 203,000 jobs. The stock market continues to set record highs and private industry is sitting on $1.6 trillion dollars.

The economy is clearly coming back from our low in 2009, but we could be doing far better. The people of the United States [...]

Strengthen our Safety Net to Strengthen our Economy

Congress has missed their first deadline in the budget negotiations that were constructed after the government shutdown. Paul Ryan and Pat Murray are co-chairing the committee, and Ryan is peddling his usual cuts to entitlement programs. Republicans persistently talk about cutting entitlement benefits under the guise of cutting the deficit and encouraging people to pull [...]

2014 Will Mould 2016 for Scott Walker

Many Wisconsin Progressives are extremely unhappy with the candidacy of Trek Executive, Mary Burke. Nary a day goes by without Facebook posts about Burke’s lack of a progressive outlook and Vinehout’s expected announcement.

Most recently a member of the Solidarity Sing-A-Long put up a post stating that “Burke is among the one percent” and “she [...]

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 [...]
