I have a Facebook politician page left over from my campaign for Milwaukee School Board back on 2011.

Walker Should Be Going to California Instead of Europe

Where he should be is in drought ridden California. As that state continues to impose water use restrictions and experiments with sea water desalination, Wisconsin is still a safe water haven (well ignoring the DNRs lack of over […]

How Wisconsin Should Select Its Chief Justice

Early last week I wrote a piece here on Blogging Blue about the proposed state constitutional amendment to change how the chief justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court is selected: Selecting A Chief Justice In The State Of Wisconsin.

Selecting A Chief Justice In The State Of Wisconsin

Bucks Are More Important Than The University?

This morning’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel features an opinion piece by Alex Molinaroli, the chairman of Johnson Controls, Todd Teske, chairman of Briggs & Stratton Corp, and Tim Sullivan, former CEO of Bucyrus International. They were touting the proposed Bucks arena as an important asset for Milwaukee and Milwaukee regional firms and why government should get […]

Insanity: Doing The Same Thing In Iraq And Expecting A Different Outcome

Because of the bull headedness of the President George W Bush administration, the Iraqi Army of the Saddam Hussein era was disbanded after the US invasion of Iraq. Water over the dam except for it’s recurring costs to the Iraqi and American people…

So we reconstituted the Iraqi Army and armed and trained them and […]

Governor Walker Continues To Run Against The Predecessor

Just as he did in the 2010 election, the 2012 recall election, and the 2014 election when he ran against FORMER Governor Jim Doyle, in his stump speech in South Carolina, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is waging his presidential campaign against the incumbent, President Barack Obama!

In his Columbia appearance, he talked up his union […]
