That’s how Scott Walker and Chris Christie sounded yesterday on their tour of Hudson, Wisconsin – on the same day, First Lady, Michelle Obama came to Milwaukee to campaign for Mary Burke.
Poking fun at her economic plan – even though Walker’s was an “impressive” two pages with pictures – and bringing up her Harvard education in a way only a college dropout can.
Ginsburg knows how to frame a question, but so do I. Here’s mine: When that question falls on the ears of people close enough to Ginsburg to hear it and they make no sound, what does their silence mean?
The criminal justice system reform group WISDOM is holding a news conference and awareness raising event Wednesday at noon on the State Street Capitol steps. The rally by the group including some 160 faith-based organizations will include a replica of a solitary confinement cell.
The United Nations says more than 15 days in solitary is considered torture. In 2012 Wisconsin kept four thousand inmates in solitary at least 30 days. Some have been in solitary for years. It’s unjust, immoral and inhuman. It has to stop.
We like to say America is a place for second chances, but if you are a black man with a record today, the chances of you living the American Dream — legally — are essentially over.
….on Good Friday, April 18, he said he received a phone call from the mother of a student he knew on campus. His reaction, he believes, cost him his job and has harmed his chances to continue his career.
“She was very emotional and she said, ‘You know that recruit you had here yesterday. (He) sexually assaulted my daughter,'” Fader said. “I called the police and said, ‘I’m Tim Fader. I’m the wrestling coach. I have a sexual assault allegation. What do I do?'”
Fader said the Whitewater police officer he spoke to suggested he get the recruit to the station for questioning. Fader did that, sending the recruit with an assistant coach to meet with detectives
“He is, arguably, the most conservative governor in America – a guy who, should he survive the spirited reelection challenge he now faces, could emerge as proof that appealing with uncompromising intensity to the passions of archconservatives can still win you elections in purple states. Or, in defeat, Walker could provide the latest cautionary tale of GOP intransigence.”
Long-time political activist Eric O’Keefe, a director of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, on Monday sent a certified letter to Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm demanding that Chisholm ask the Milwaukee County Circuit Court to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the conduct of the DA and his office.
Pick up an M-4 and go over there yourself. Take McCain and Graham with you.
Since no reporter will dare ask Scott Walker or Chris Christie about their scandals or their lack of respect for public workers, maybe they can ask Scott Walker this question –
Mr. Walker, how many times today while talking to Mr. Christie did you say “Why didn’t I think of that?”, so we know exactly how scared we should be for a second Walker term.
Whether Roenicke also will have his contract honored in 2015 remains to be seen. Melvin said there was no timetable for making judgments on the manager or his coaching staff.
1. What’s the theory behind “respect” for me? Am I supposed to feel like Joe Biden will withdraw his respect if I don’t pony up? Is this email for women only or do they throw this “respect” business at men too? (I’m about to give you all of my money… Not.)
It was an encounter of the Third or Fourth Kind. An irascible conservative, self-confessed gun nut, and Walker supporter (all in the same corpus) appeared at a liberal-progressive-socialist gabfest on Madison’s Willy Street Friday night like a job recruiter at an Occupy demonstration.
“Hong Kong is China’s Hong Kong,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying defiantly told a news briefing in Beijing.
The unrest, the worst in Hong Kong since China resumed its rule over the former British colony in 1997, sent white clouds of gas wafting among some of the world’s most valuable office towers and shopping malls before riot police suddenly withdrew around lunchtime on Monday, after three nights of confrontation.
“This officiating crew is having a rough day,” Fox game analyst John Lynch said charitably after yet another questionable call in the fourth quarter.
The dairy CAFOs are a nightmare with many rooms of horror and one wishes this were hyperbole.
One of the worst terrors is the deranged, systemic dynamic that Wisconsin’s former DNR runoff chief, Gordon Stevenson (2001-2011) terms “medieval”: Vectoring millions of tons of liquid cow manure into the aquifers and Wisconsin surface waters, including the two largest Great Lakes.
