Waukesha Freeman January 15, 2015 Page A6 Opinion Scott Walker’s STATE OF THE STATE for an Iowa audience Governor Scott Walker’s State of the State address was shorter than normal. In less than a half-hour, Walker managed to say they cut taxes, grew jobs, improved the schools, helped disabled people and “Go Packers!” I actually […]

So the paranoia primary begins. Jim Geraghty at National Review Online wrote an unflattering article about Dr. Ben Carson’s unsavory endorsement of a suspect supplement company.  It got the expected reaction, which is, “How dare you criticize Saint Carson?” Jonathan Bernstein at Bloomberg View puts the Geraghty article onto the Grassy Knoll by saying some […]

Confessions of a Cowboys fan It’s not easy being blue in a green and gold state I called my mom the other day asking if she had any pictures of me when I was little wearing clothes with my favorite football team on it. She told me she didn’t, and even if I had clothes […]

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 […]

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 […]
