In my never-ending quest to give you more of me more of the time, I wrote an op-ed piece for the MacIver Institute regarding the budget situation for the City of Appleton. Despite a huge hit in shared revenue and an increase in tipping fees and garbage collection costs, Appleton’s proposed budget does not raise […]

Jo Egelhof asks an important question about the Appleton school district: But here’s the question. If the federal government is having to borrow everything it spends, spending your children’s money and your grandchildren’s money; if the state is in deep budget trouble, still struggling with billions in deficits and revenues that continue to fall short; […]

Jo Egelhoff, candidate for the state assembly, issued a statement today in response to a negative attack campaign by the Greater Wisconsin Committee.

Jo Egelhoff is a blogger and proprietress of She would also make an exceptionally […]

My latest contribution to is up. For the record, I warned Jo Egelhoff ahead of time I might go on a fire pit rant. I actually make a wonderful larger point about society that everyone will agree with even as they succumb to their inner-tyrant. Don’t believe me? Check the comments. Annoying do-gooder busy-bodies.

While Jo Egelhoff is off campaigning for the state assembly, Fred Dooley, Lance Burri and I are pinch-hitting. It’s the least we can do. Really, the absolute least. Fred Dooley has his first installment today, “Big Coffee“. Well, there is one thing you can say about oil, lots of people have made lots of money […]

With the introduction of the Friday afternoon cocktail, pinch-hitting for the Jo Egelhoff on Thursdays, and column writing on Tuesdays, we’re moving the Idiot Politician of the Week to Saturdays.
