That low hanging fruit is always the easiest to pick

Yesterday’s BizJournal ran a story about the “potential GOP presidential candidate”, Scott Walker and some of the other WEDC executives (because he’s the CEO, don’t you know) going to London to talk up Wisconsin as a potential investment site for UK firms. They are planning to “highlight Wisconsin’s growth sectors: energy, aviation/aerospace, water technology, agriculture, […]

A little piece of my heart

What makes the end of the season for Green Bay yesterday particularly awful for me is the loss of solidarity in Wisconsin. For 20 short weeks, all of Wisconsin is pretty much united behind the Pack. Granted, we have differences of opinion about the plays, the coaching, the players and even the weather during the […]

Scott Walker, still not running for President?

Just a few days ago, our Governor was claiming that he might, sometime in the future, take a look at whether it made sense for “us” to run for President in 2016. As quoted in The Hill yesterday, when Governor Walker was asked about the possibility on “The Hugh Hewitt Show”, he said:

Why An Anti-Unionist Would Want A Job In A Union Shop

In the continued discussion around the Right to Freeload bill expected to come up for discussion in Madison this January, when the topic of worker freedom gets bandied about…no one from the right ever seems to suggest that an anti-union employee has the right to find a job in a non-union shop…and there are more […]

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 […]

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 […]
