President Barack Obama is coming to Milwaukee today to celebrate the number of Milwaukeeans enrolled in Obamacare. At the MacIver Institute, I explained what the president is likely to see and why we really have nothing to celebrate: Those poor souls who entered the Obamacare exchange to buy health insurance found the insurance pickings a […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I explain that we have no responsibility to Donald Trump as the GOP nominee for President and we actually have an obligation to oppose him. We are not bound by the pledges of Trump’s erstwhile opponents to support the party nominee. We are bound by our consciences to oppose a demagogic egomaniac […]

Waukesha Freeman Thursday, 25 February 2016 Page A06 Opinion Water most important issue last 10 years Tuesday was my tenth anniversary of officially writing a column for the Waukesha Freeman. The Lovely Doreen from Waukesha and I had pizza. I would have shared but it was Tuesday and you’re reading this Thursday, so no pizza for […]

Judging from the most recent interview by Mike Gousha on his Sunday morning yack fest, it’s like Russ Feingold never served in the Senate. Gousha asked Feingold about Senate Republicans like Ron Johnson refusing to consider President Barack Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, but as I explain at RightWisconsin Gousha never asked a follow-up […]

I’m sure it’s just an amazing coincidence that the critics of Waukesha’s application for a diversion of Great Lakes water are all suffering from a form of hysterical convenient political amnesia. Over at the MacIver Institute, I wrote about how State Rep Cory Mason and his environmentalist friends must have forgotten they helped draft the […]

A friend of ours is a hairdresser at a men’s hair salon. She does a great job on my hair and, as I have an appointment on Monday, I went to the salon to get a haircut. Over at Ricochet, I posted some fun observations of the experience. To wit: But a haircut is a […]

Waukesha Freeman 1/18/2016 Page A06 Opinion Bradley, Abele in trouble Rough night for incumbents A lot to cover here this morning so hang on. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Is state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley in trouble? In 2011, Justice David Prosser actually got over 50 percent of the vote in the […]

The death of Justice Antonin Scalia puts the center-right majority on the Supreme Court in peril. Instead of 5-4, the court is evenly split depending on what happens to President Barack Obama’s nominee or possibly the presidential election. On the MacIver Institute website, I explain why Scalia’s death is important for one case that will […]

The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was discovered the same morning as the most recent Republican presidential debate. Unfortunately, the gravity of the responsibilities of the office of president did not affect the debate the way it should have. At RightWisconsin, I wrote about the importance of Scalia’s death and why it is […]

“Justice Scalia was a patriot and a hero of American legal jurisprudence. A lion of the justice system, he stood for the letter of the law and did not allow politics of the day to sway his dedication to the constitutional role of the judiciary. Justice Scalia served our country with honor and distinction. Tonette […]
