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 […]

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 […]

Let The Battle’s Begin!

Posted January 7th, 2013 @ 1:03 AM by

Today, the newest Wisconsin legislature will be sworn in and then they get to work(which is good because the Wisconsin legislature has not worked since March)! While Scott Walker has said he wants to stay away from such divisive policies as before to focus on jobs(thus proving that his first two years he cared about […]

Worst. Column. EVER!

By now everyone knows that Scott Walker promised as part of his campaign, that he would “create” 250,000 jobs. “get government out of the way of employers … who will then help Wisconsin create 250,000 jobs by 2015, and as we create those new jobs, we will be able to add 10,000 new businesses.” We […]

An Open Letter to Christopher Mertes

Posted December 28th, 2011 @ 10:38 AM by

Christopher Mertes, managing editor and far right wing idealogue, of the Sun Prairie Star, recently wrote one of the most ridiculous editorials I have seen this side of Christian Schneider. In his editorial, Mertes accuses democrats of hate speech, based on a few different facebook pages and comments. In mid-November, the Federal Bureau of Investigation […]

Prosser Cleared?!?!?!

Posted August 29th, 2011 @ 8:08 AM by

Cross Posted @bloggingblue, because, in lieu of the right wing attack on Justice Bradley and inexcusable defense of Justice Prosser, this story needs to be told. Justice David Prosser, through official marionette, Brian Schimming, had this to say”“I was confident the truth would come out – and it did. I am gratified that the prosecutor […]

Scott Walker was right….

Posted June 7th, 2011 @ 1:22 PM by

Governor Scott Walker appears to have been correct when he said: “We’re Broke and Can’t Negotiate.” Unfortunately the members of the legislature did not get that memo. The legislature continues to collectively bargain with that union of businesses better known as Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC). In recent days, the Joint Finance Committee, chaired by […]
