Posted April 3rd, 2014 @ 7:51 AM by

The UW system created a new job- Vice President of University Relations at the University of Wisconsin System. Many immensely qualified people applied for this job, unfortunately we found out that only one qualification mattered….the ability to kiss the ring of the republicans in charge of our state. For this important qualification, they found the […]

Wisconsin State Journal – Getting It Wrong for 100 Years!

Posted March 10th, 2014 @ 9:47 AM by

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Wisconsin State Journal published an editorial on March 9th, 1914 proclaiming “Send Pickles to fight Scurvy“. Are you aware the scurvy is prevailing in our army, and our troops are diminishing every day in consequence? If so, why not try to alleviate their sufferings, […]

Privatization Pirates!

Watching Captain Phillips recently, my wife turned to me and said “I’ve found someone who has a harder job than I do”. I pointed out that, that is because the pirates have found a legal way to steal your money! The fight to protect our public schools is getting harder and harder by the day. […]

There is a scandal brewing in Wisconsin that not only typifies exactly who the Wisconsin Republican party is but what is wrong with Wisconsin the last three years. A quick recap, Scott Suder knew he was going to be one of the first rats to jump the ship, so before he did, he wrote a […]

Tony Galli – updated

Posted September 30th, 2013 @ 7:22 AM by

We brought the recent story of WKOW, and their employee Tony Galli, making the Bradley Foundation’s day and attacking a local elementary art teacher. Galli’s “reporting” consisted of regurgitating a very poorly written piece by the far right, Bradley funded “news” organization – Wisconsin Reporter. Then to make matters worse, the ONLY person who Galli […]

H/T Heather @ Monologues of Dissent! As our children go back to school and you meet with the teachers, administrators and classmates, tour the schools and get caught up in the excitement of a new school year, keep something in mind.

Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper. ~Thomas Jefferson, letter to Nathaniel Macon One thing that is common place in today’s society is the ability of people to have access to something and want no one else to also have that same thing. That being said, it amazes me that […]

The Voucher Scam!

Posted August 17th, 2013 @ 1:25 PM by

The truth of school Vouchers is slowly starting to come out and its not pretty. While Scott Walker, Robin Vos, et al. will tell you that they have “reformed” education, they will not be telling you the truth. Let’s start in Wisconsin where the republican minority have greatly increased the public education money that is […]

Why I Left The Catholic Church

Posted June 25th, 2013 @ 11:53 PM by

They say a picture says 1000 words and this one most certainly does. When the Bishop of my Catholic Church decides to spend his time supporting a person who makes a living selling hatred and vitriol, and has been known to skip on her bills, beat up policemen and try to organize boycotts of businesses […]

Apparently in today’s Wisconsin, random “tweets” are now what is classified as news! We have one of the most extreme budgets in our history being passed quickly through the Wisconsin statehouse, major cuts to education, an abysmal 2 + year Abysmal economy in Wisconsin and our paper of record is combing through random tweets! Honestly! […]
