Waiting for a progressive

From now on, Wisconsin Democrats should run real progressives in high-profile races, not corporate hacks like Mary Burke. I think the Democratic Party of Wisconsin would be far better off if they ran actual progressives for every office.

Larson leaves leadership

“I called Jen Shilling last night to let her know I would be voting for her and would be encouraging my supporters to unite behind her, as well. I hope for a united caucus as we prepare to take on the incredible threat ahead. We will do well under her guidance and leadership,” Larson wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday.

Tate’s Eleven

….nearly half of the money ($1,381,500 out of a total of $2,822,626.66 in receipts, or 48.94% of the total party receipts) donated to the DPW between July 29 and October 20 of this year comes from only 11 individuals, 6 of which are Wisconsin residents. By effectively controlling the purse strings of the party, those 11 individuals effectively control the DPW and how Mike Tate and other top party officials run the party….

From the top

The most clear example of how far the Democrats have drifted from their origins is presented that when one considers how Tate led them to yet another bloodbath in the same election that several referendum questions that included raising the minimum wage, expanding health care and lowering costs and getting corporate money out of politics all passed with resounding success.

Conservative reflections

….9.  To my fellow conservatives, it was a great week to be us. But there are no permanent victories in politics and winning is only worthwhile if we make something of it. Expanded school and parental choice. Regulatory reform. An end to crony capitalism. A fresh approach to strengthening our urban areas. More economic freedom. Reform of the campaign finance laws. An end to John Doe gag orders….

Obsessed thief gets the pen

A Milwaukee man whose attorney said he had become obsessed with the idea of stealing a Stradivarius violin was sentenced Monday to seven years in prison for robbing the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster of his instrument after a performance in January.

Salah Salahadyn, 42, fired a Taser at Frank Almond as he walked to his car. Police traced confetti left by the weapon to Salahadyn’s barber, who had purchased the Taser months earlier. He led police to Salahadyn, who eventually led police to the instrument.

The Deer Czar’s Rules

Many times Secretary Cathy Stepp repeated, “The rules have changed, but the tradition remains.” Hunters whom I’ve spoken with wonder if all we’ll have years from now is the fond memory of what used to be Wisconsin’s very equal deer hunting tradition. Many things are changing. New rules could hasten the loss of our populist deer hunt.

What about drunk driving?

Yet when it comes to known, harmful nationally-leading drug abuse practices and events in Wisconsin, Walker and Vos have steadfastly refused to lift a finger to deal with known, data-proven facts about drug use in Wisconsin – – impaired driving – – and have blocked many serious attempts to make the most minimal of reform – – joining the other 49 states and the District of Columbia and making a first-time caught drunk driving a misdemeanor rather than the mere ticket is is now.

Enbridge – – a pipeline company with a grim record of breaks and spills in Wisconsin and across the nation – – continues to face grassroots and governmental opposition to pipeline expansion across our state despite the politicized regulatory pass announced by Gov Walker’s pollution-tolerant DNR.
