Liberal tantrums have no end

Waukesha Freeman August 21, 2014 Page A6 Opinion Liberal tantrums have no end  Ryan’s book targeted for vandalism I have yet to meet the proverbial white angry male at Republican gatherings or at tea party events. Not even the proverbial white angry female. Or, at least if I have, they seem to have left their anger at home. I’m not saying they’re not out there. I’m sure there are more than... [Read more]

Donovan’s run

Bruce Murphy over at the Urban Milwaukee website is already predicting Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan will not defeat Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the 2016 spring election. Why can’t Donovan win a race for mayor? Let us count the reasons.

Conservatives should be very grateful for the political risk taken by Grothman in challenging and defeating Mary Panzer. I also get the “Grothman gives good quote” argument. That’s probably what Charlie Sykes meant when he wrote, “What... [Read more]

Apparently the state treasurer’s office still has one job

After running four years ago on a promise to get rid of the state treasurer’s office, Kurt Schuller made a half-hearted effort on behalf of the needed state constitutional amendment. After that the office fought a rear-guard action to preserve itself while continuing spending money on things like plastic piggy banks. Now the circle is complete and Schuller has embraced the bureaucracy. I guess... [Read more]

Allen, Rosner top contenders

Waukesha Freeman Thursday, August 7, 2014 Page A5 Opinion Candidates have just five days Allen, Rosner top contenders Only five more shopping days left in the primary campaign season. Have you picked a candidate? As former Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson observed the other night, in a field this large, normally one or two candidates are just filling space on the ballot. In this race, all six have been... [Read more]
