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 […]

Another Victim

Governor Scott Walker and his Wisconsin legislative cronies have claimed another victim in their war on the locally owned “Mom and Pop” store!

D-Day for Public Education

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 […]

We All Must Oppose The Expansion of School Vouchers

Posted March 10th, 2013 @ 8:29 AM by

The Monona Grove Board of Education, building principals and district office administrators, and teachers (Monona Grove Education Association) join together to urge legislators to oppose any expansion of the voucher program for schools. Perhaps the most important reason to oppose voucher expansion is that research of the 22-year voucher experiment in Milwaukee shows student performance […]

Permit Occassionally Required!

As the Cartoonish Chief Erwin sends his minions all over the state to issue tickets for singing in the Capitol, (purportedly for gathering in groups of four or more) yet he is selective in who gets these tickets! H/T Rebecca Kemble for this picture from Inauguration Day: I checked Ccap and none of these people […]

MINE

Governor Walker promised us(among other things) that his administration would help create 250,000 jobs. After two years(of a four year term) the Governor has once again failed miserably, as his total to date of 37,011 leaves him 212,989 jobs left to meet his promise! After two years of republican led civil war on our state, […]

Desperate Times, Call for Desperate Measures!

Summer 2012, the Wisconsin republicans had the world by the balls. They had control over the State Assembly, the State Senate, the Governor and the Supreme Court. They were virtually untouchable(except for a recall). Then something happened, they tried to Govern. We all know the mess of ACT 10 and the turmoil and lawsuits that […]

New Rule: When the Wisconsin Republican Party, prosecutes BS likes this: n the town of Albion, new residents and young people who have just reached voting age usually drop by the town clerk’s office to register to vote. But this year, the town’s part-time clerk, Julie Hanewall, has received about 30 registration applications by mail, […]

New Rule – part 2.

This should be a given, but here goes. New Rule – Staff from really bad politicians make really bad politicians! While there are too many examples to name (Robin Vos and Cottage Grove’s own ex-appointed president being a couple. Sun Prairie is also finding that out with Mayor John Murray who was formerly paul ryan […]

Rules for Thee, Not for Robin Vos

Ahem: The lawmaker who introduced a bill to cap attorney fees in consumer litigation never mentioned that he, as a landlord, faces a pending claim of $20,000 in such fees from a case over a student house in Whitewater. Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said he wrote the bill capping fees at three times a plaintiff’s […]
