As I was polishing the family heirloom martini shaker, a genie appeared. “Master of the Martini, listen to me. You have freed me from the curse that trapped me in here lo these many millennia.” To which I replied, “I didn’t think they had stainless steel thousands of years ago.” “SILENCE! While I have been […]

RightWisconsin contributors were asked to make three predictions regarding the coming year. I looked into the crystal ball and made predictions about Kevin Kennedy, right-to-work and Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate. CJ Szafir of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty makes the following prediction, and I hope he is right: New laws passed in […]

With the Reverend Jesse Jackson coming to Milwaukee Friday afternoon, I thought a reminder of what I wrote earlier this week for RightWisconsin about the Dontre Hamilton protests would be timely. When violent crime happens in Milwaukee, nobody is going to call the “Coalition for Justice” to solve the crime. Nobody is looking to Jennifer […]

Over at RightWisconsin (where you should be a subscriber by now), I comment on the latest Assembly Democrat appointed to the powerful Joint Finance Committee, State Rep Gordon Hintz. It’s good to see the Assembly Democrats completely abandoning any claim Republicans are waging a ‘War on Women’ as we enter the new year. I realize […]

Over at the MacIver Institute, I took a different perspective looking back than I used in my Waukesha Freeman column, focusing on the public policy debates of the last year. I found 2014 to be an incomplete year, merely a continuation of what came before that will be passing on to the next year. With […]

Waukesha Freeman 12/31/14 Page A7 Opinion A look back at the year that was Walker, Kramer were big political stories; lots of turnover in local politics When the old year passes, sometimes it’s with regret and sometimes it’s with joy. As we gather to toast the new year and drink away the old, it’s worth […]

Waukesha Freeman 12/24/14 Page A8 Opinion Time to stop the protests Left’s rhetoric claims two victims It’s cliché now to remember Shakespeare’s words that this is our winter of discontent. But if it is, then will glorious summer, in King Richard III’s words, be long in coming? Of course they recently dug up the king’s […]

Waukesha Freeman 12/18/2014 Page A6 Opinion Real campaigns need real money Farrow challenger unlikely to reach voters without war chest In case you missed it, the election for the next Waukesha County executive is essentially over. Barring a surprise last-minute entry, state Sen. Paul Farrow will be Waukesha County’s third county executive. Farrow jumped into […]

Waukesha Freeman 12/11/14 Page A4 Opinion Selective outrage Democrats forget recent past to score political points With the sentencing of state Rep. Bill Kramer to five months in jail and the election of his successor Scott Allen, most Waukesha residents probably thought the issue was over. For the Democrats, however, nothing is over when they […]

I believe it’s not too late for young actors to audition for what promises to be a truly awful theatrical experience in Madison, “Greetings From FitzWalkerstan.” As I wrote recently for RightWisconsin, this play is as awful as it sounds. Lest you think I am judging the play by its cover, the main character is […]
