Conan O’Brien does the useful idiot pose

I may be one of the six people on Earth that occasionally find Conan O’Brien funny, but his trip to Cuba is anything but. It doesn’t take O’Brien long to show that he’s a clueless Hollywood dolt ready to go Commie chic to be “cool.” This iconic Che Guevara image was born right here in Havana. #ConanCUBA — Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien)... [Read more]

Yet another Democrat compares Republicans to Nazis

Sheila Cochran of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council showed she lacked any sense of perspective when, in response to a question about Right to Work from Mike Gousha, she referred to Martin Niemöller’s “First they came…” speech. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain just how ridiculous this is. I also point out that Gousha had an obligation as an interviewer to follow up on that point... [Read more]

PBS Stands for Public Broadcasting Subsidy

One of the more interesting provisions of the proposed state budget is a possible cut to the subsidy for public radio and public television.

We also took day trips to the Grand Canyon and to the Meteor Crater outside Flagstaff. I’ll spare you the entire slideshow, but here’s the Grand Canyon: Photo by Doreen Wigderson © Really, no photo... [Read more]

The right to be melodramatic

Waukesha Freeman February 26, 2015 Page A6 Opinion The right to be melodramatic Protesters take logic, actions to extreme Passage of right-to-work legislation will not mean the end of the world. What it will mean is that workers will have more freedom, the right to choose whether to pay dues to a union that may or not be acting in the worker’s best interests. Of course, you wouldn’t know that if... [Read more]

Not all dinosaurs are extinct. Some hold elective office.

Over at the MacIver Institute, I have a new op-ed regarding our Secretary of State Doug La Follette’s attempt to save his office space, put in danger by the governor’s proposed budget. Not only should his office space be taken away, they should take away the elected office La Follette holds. Print this entry Read More →
