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, […]

Elizabeth Coppola in the 21st!

Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it! Broken deals, petulant behavior, single-minded focus on an extreme social agenda at the expense of legislation to put Wisconsinites to work and move our state forward… If you watched last night and this morning on WisconsinEye, read about it in the papers this morning, […]

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 […]

Vicki Mckenna’s Peer Group

Posted September 2nd, 2013 @ 11:46 PM by

I recently wrote an article about why I personally left the Catholic Church. What summed it all up to me, was a picture of Bishop Morlino, celebrating Vicki Pyzinski’s radio show. See today, Vicki and 6 of her friends, decided to use their Labor Day off(that the unions were able to secure from them) to […]

Singing for the 1st

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 […]

Another Victim

Posted June 2nd, 2013 @ 7:29 AM by

Governor Scott Walker and his Wisconsin legislative cronies have claimed another victim in their war on the locally owned “Mom and Pop” store! Johannsen’s Greenhouse, a Madison establishment since 1960 will be closing at the end of the summer! Karen said the family had no immediate plans to close shop, but then an unsolicited offer […]

Posted May 29th, 2013 @ 8:43 AM by

Today is the day that we have been discussing for weeks. Today is the day that the legislature starts discussing public school funding. Unfortunately for the children and the future of the state it doesn’t look good: As we know the privatize our schools lobby is well funded and staffed with incredibly unethical people. The […]

Others Weigh in on Privatization of Schools.

Posted May 13th, 2013 @ 11:41 PM by

It’s not just me pointing out that the republicans, led by Scott Walker, want to privatize(and profit from) public education. Let’s take a look: 1. Bruce Murphy from Urban Milwaukee: The word was out last year that Republican Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald intended to retire and make the big money working as a lobbyist. Two […]
