Umm, because, you know, it’s, ahhh… umm

Watch Scott Walker tie his tongue in knots. Priceless.

What’s the story here?

Congratulations to Zach from Blogging Blue and WKBT Channel 8 News in LaCrosse. Why?

They appear to be the only two media outlets that got the headline correct regarding the recent potential pollution of Trempealeau County drinking water by a frac sand mining company: ” Frac sand mine may have contaminated drinking water. “

The [...]

VIDEO: A public servant shares her story of Act 10’s impact on her family

This is a powerful video.

My own thoughts on the impact of Act 10 on public employees are well-documented, but Monologues of Dissent summed up my thoughts perfectly. This is my boat, and the boat of so many other state workers who were barely getting by prior to the “modest concessions” and cuts imposed [...]

Report: frac sand mine may have contaminated Trempeleau County drinking water

I blame Gov. Scott Walker and his pro-business DNR for this.

There is concern over the safety of drinking water in part of Trempealeau County.

This comes after a frac sand mine near Independence was shut down and is now being investigated for three different violations that go against its permit with the county.

One [...]

So about that woman in the Mary Burke ad…

Despite his longstanding rule that “just because it’s on CCAP doesn’t mean it’s a story,” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Dan Bice didn’t hesitate to report on the story of Erin Forrest, a woman who appeared in an ad for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, despite Forrest having been charged with Battery and Disorderly Conduct stemming [...]

A question for all you conservatives out there

It’s been roughly three days since the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear appeals on same-sex marriage in Wisconsin and four other states, and here’s a question I’m hoping our conservative readers can answer.

How many “traditional marriages” do you know that have broken down since same-sex marriage became legal in Wisconsin?

After all, didn’t [...]

Another Unique Lie In The Sale of Wisconsin Government To The Highest Bidder!

This is just a subscript in a recent article about how poorly the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources had performed under the Walker Administration:

Walker and the Legislature also scaled back the power of state agencies by giving the governor authority to review and approve all regulations written by state agencies before they take [...]

New report highlights widening racial disparities for children in Wisconsin

On September 10, the Wisconsin Council on Children & Families highlighted the Race for Results: Wisconsin’s Need to Reduce Racial Disparities, a policy report recently published by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that found that children of color face immense barriers to success in key categories of well-being, and that the status of African-American children [...]

Roundy’s to close two Milwaukee-area stores, cut 200 jobs

Apparently Roundy’s didn’t get the message that Scott Walker’s Wisconsin is “Open for Business.” Roundy’s just announced that will close two local Pick ‘n Save stores and sell another, which means more than 200 people will soon be out of work.

The two closings are at the store on Brown Deer Road in Milwaukee and [...]

Wisconsin Club for Growth engages in express advocacy in email against Happ

As I’ve mentioned here before, a number of years ago some anonymous hater, whose soul must be a pit of dark matter as dense as a collapsed star, signed me up for weekly emails from the Wisconsin Club for Growth. Most of the time, I just ignore them, as their constant stream of “global warming [...]
