Cancel Culture? Mike Gableman Understands How To Use It!

I have gotten used to the GOP lies and misinformation and misdirection…and then moments later moving in the other direction when they sense a wind shift. But it’s always amused me when they go on and one about cancel culture while they are doing precisely that. This article is behind…

Tommy Thompson Just Trashed All The Good Will He Earned As Interim UW President.

And for me, as a UWM student, I really appreciated the work that former WI Governor Tommy Thompson did to protect the student body during the COVID pandemic and protect the University in general from the reckless nut cases in control of the Wisconsin Legislature. But this news report blows…

What A Bunch Of Self-Serving Assholes In The US Senate

I have only listened to a bit over two hours of the Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmation hearings. But I have heard at least two Senators ask a question to how she might rule if violation of laws that they had authored and gotten passed would come to the Supreme…

We Do Redistricting All Wrong!

And no, this post isn’t a rant against gerrymandering or other bias in district distribution. This is more an observation on how ass backwards the system seems to be. This all comes from a newspaper article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel stating that the City of Milwaukee had to wait…

Eleven Months Into The Pandemic, Andrea Palm, is still only the secretary-designee of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

This makes little to no sense…yes the biggest number of Biden votes came from Milwaukee and Dane counties…but yes…they are Democratic strong holds and always go Democratic. The Trump campaign needs to flip 11,000 votes to possibly negate Biden’s lead of nearly 21,000 votes. I don’t think that’s likely to…
