David Koch’s pick for Republican presidential nomination? Why, Scott Walker of course!

This should surprise absolutely no one… Charles G. and David H. Koch, the influential and big-spending conservative donors, appear to have a favorite in the race for the Republican presidential nomination: Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin State Senate passes bill eliminating waiting period for handgun purchases

I’m having a hard time understanding why eliminating the 48-hour waiting period for handgun purchases in Wisconsin is necessary, except to help further burnish Gov. Scott Walker’s conservative credentials for the extremist conservatives who comprise the base of the Republican Party. The Wisconsin Senate voted on Tuesday to repeal the state’s 48-hour waiting period for […]

Rand Paul touted “nobility of charity” in 2011 as an alternative to Social Security, Meals on Wheels

This is from a few years ago, but it bears mentioning given Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s recently announced campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Mary Jane Koren, a geriatrician and vice-president of the Commonwealth Fund, noted that seniors often suffer health problems and are put in nursing homes after falling down. Poor nutrition […]

It’s clear the intended target of Supervisor Alexander’s idiotic […]

VIDEO: Terrified “Tea Party Patriot” realizes he could lose Obamacare if GOP wins in 2016

There’s huge heaping dose of irony in this story of James Webb, a conservative video blogger who said this week he would likely vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton because he was terrified a Republican president would take away the affordable health insurance he now enjoys thanks to ObamaCare.

Watch for yourselves.

The Trolls Are Already Running Amok Over Hillary Clinton

I have a Facebook politician page left over from my campaign for Milwaukee School Board back on 2011. It’s been a quiet backwater since then…a place to repost my Blogging Blue efforts and articles of interest around politics, foreign policy, economy, education, etc. The sort of stuff I rant about around here.
