Eric Genrich: Look back to move progressive politics forward

At the risk of getting a little fixated on the subject, this is a great opinion piece by Democratic State Rep. Eric Genrich on how to move the Democratic Party in Wisconsin forward in the face of further losses in the 2014 general election. So how can we turn the tide and restore our state’s […]

Scott Walker’s WEDC CEO resigning

As reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Reed Hall, the chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is leaving his post.

Scott Walker Is Not Ready For Prime Time As Proven By John Kasich

At the Republicans Governors Association Conference, a little preliminary bout for the 2016 GOP Presidential Primary Campaign found Ohio Governor John Kasich showing just how shallow and how ignorant our Governor Scott Walker is. And hopefully the national media won’t be quite as complacent as the Wisconsin media has been during Gov. Walker’s three gubernatorial […]

Scott Walker’s adminstration facing $2.2 billion deficit heading into 2015-17 budget cycle

But remember, Gov. Scott Walker and Republicans in the legislature have our state budget on the right track… Gov. Scott Walker’s administration is projecting a $2.2 billion deficit heading into the 2015-17 budget cycle.

That’s a sizable hole for Walker, who is contemplating a 2016 presidential run, to climb out of as he crafts his […]

Scott Walker thinks he’s a Wisconsin progressive

What a load of horse crap… Newly re-elected Gov. Scott Walker tells the Wall Street Journal’s hotshot editorial writer Joseph Rago that he’s confident he fits into the progressive tradition of Wisconsin’s Robert M. “Fighting Bob” La Follette.

I kid you not.

It was right there on the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper’s opinion page in a […]

Scott Walker’s higher speed rail boondoggle

This is worth a read. Walker won and trains lost. He quickly moved to kill the Milwaukee to Madison part of the project, but he claimed to support upgrades to the Hiawatha line. Meanwhile, Talgo was already well along in the construction of two sets of trains to serve that line. In fact, the state […]

Another Desperate And Irresponsible Attempt To Smear The GOP

Apparently I am not the only desperate liberal blogger who wants to smear the GOP in their own words…about that grant to UW-Madison to study the sleep habits of fruit flies and mice. Just today Bruce Murphy in his column Murphy’s Law at UrbanMilwaukee.com wrote just a bit about Representative Robin Vos’ (R – Burlington) […]

Breaking! Shock! Scott Walker to consider run for president in 2016

I’m actually surprised it took Gov. Walker this long to admit he’s going to consider a run for president in 2016. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday he is seriously considering whether to get into the race for president in 2016, but he hasn’t decided yet whether he feels the call to run.

“My personal […]

Scott Walker’s Public Service Commission approves fee increase, penalty for residential solar power

Looks like Gov. Scott Walker’s Public Service Commission wants to stick it to Wisconsin energy consumers in the name of higher profits for WE Energies.

We Energies customers will pay a larger fixed charge on their monthly electric bills, and the utility will pay less for the power that customers generate with solar panels, state […]
