Transpo Fund Amendment Will Not Deliver!

Posted October 6th, 2014 @ 5:30 AM by

So the proponents of Wisconsin state referendum question #1, a constitutional amendment to protect the transportation fund, put out a video to convince the public why the measure is in their interests.  If you go to the section on what people want their transportation money spent on, you see: Repair the streets. Improving quality of […]

Worth a Constitutional Amendment?

Posted October 1st, 2014 @ 5:30 AM by

On November 4th, the people of Wisconsin will be asked if they want to “protect” the state’s transportation fund.  The motivation, proponents say, is the $1.4 billion “raid” on the transportation fund during the Doyle administration. The implication is that the people who pay gas taxes have been shortchanged and that their interests need to […]

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

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 […]

D-Day for Public Education

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 […]

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, […]
