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 […]

Here is My Letter to The Editor regarding my observations from collecting signatures. Congratulations to everyone who collected signatures for the recall effort of Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch (and all four republican senators) whether you collected 1 or 1500 or anywhere in between.

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 […]

New Rule – part 2.

This should be a given, but here goes. New Rule – Staff from really bad politicians make really bad politicians!

Today’s Must Read

Posted October 24th, 2011 @ 11:59 AM by

Comes from Dave Zweifel at the Cap Times, with a brilliant way to save money in WI. This kind of vicious and juvenile behavior from Nass’ office has become routine. He’s just one of several current legislators who have never learned the meaning of civility. Here’s my suggestion for saving big bucks: Take Mikalsen off […]

Recall Repercussions

Posted October 20th, 2011 @ 12:15 PM by

The results were in this summer with the democrats flipping two seats in the Senate recalls. While the republicans lost two seats, they still maintained a slight 17-16 majority. Thus both sides declared “victory”. In case your scoring at home and want to see who won exactly( FYI – it was the people of Wisconsin) […]

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Simpson’s Soliloquy on Words of Reason

Posted October 4th, 2011 @ 12:38 AM by

This weeks Herald Independent, the paper of record for the Monona Grove School District, had an interesting column from their latest Cottage Grove columnist Tom Reason. Mr. Reason covered two topics and unfortunately both of them poorly. The first topic that Mr. Reason covered was the success of the “budget repair bill”. I don’t think […]

We have been chronicling how the fiscal conservatives are breaking the bank, now we see it “trickling down” to the Dane County Board. The right wing of the Dane County Board is attempting to throw a hissy fit which could cost the taxpayers of Dane County hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is not like […]
