WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Bob La Follette - Progressive my Butt
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics, Wisconsin Vote Fraud

Wisconsin politics, clean as the driven snow?  Dirty as Lake Michigan after the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District releases millions of gallons of untreated water in to the lake?  Pick one - the answer is Dirty!!!!  Why?  One word – Make that two words, Democrat Party!  Dirt is the legacy of the Wisconsin Democrat Party Machine.  Their answer to everything, “we inherited the problem and it is not our fault.”  Only problem is, they inherited it from themselves.

The Wisconsin Election Commission (Yes, we actually have one) has passed a new ruling regarding Campaign Finance.  The ruling states, no candidate for Office in the state can use funds collected while in Federal Office.  For example, a Congressman who announced an intention to run for, let’s say, the Governor of Wisconsin.  Why do we need such a ruling at this point?  Well, just so happens that Mark Green (R-Green Bay and an outstanding young candidate) has announced his candidacy for the Governor of Wisconsin.  He has available to him $1.3 million from his fund raising efforts while in congress.  This rule would prohibit his use of these funds for the Govenoritorial Campaign.  I can hear the Democrats whining, “its unfair that he has too much money.”

In the mean time, ole Governor Jim (Cue ball) Doyle is out raking in mass quantities of Campaign Cash from the loyal Dems of Wisconsin.  The Ho Chunk tribe (who refuses to pay their obligation to the State for the privilege of operating gambling institutions), the teacher’s unions (who don’t want anything but more money, less work and more benefits from their wholly-owned insurance company), and the ever-popular Ambulance Chasers of America (that means lawyers for all you Dem morons) lead the way.  No matter that the State Supreme Court ordered the agreements ole Cue Ball negotiated with the Ho Chunks rescinded. All other tribes continue to pay based on previous agreements, not the Ho Chunk.  What has the Governor done to resolve this?  Nothing!!!!!!  Why?  The Ho Chunks are his biggest single contributor.  And I might add, his future employers.  And Wisconsin’s $88 million deficit can be related in part to the Ho Chunks.  What has this to do with the new rule?  He is only getting his money in the State?  It is Mark Green that is being unfair.

Well, let’s go back a year.  John Norquist had vacated the Mayoral job in Milwaukee due to scandal.  His appointed successor, Marvin Pratt, was busy buying his son knives and other appropriate tire-slashing gear to get ready for the coming National Election.  At the same time, Congressman Tom Barrett (D – Milwaukee) declared his candidacy for Mayor of Milwaukee.  A large source of his campaign fund was?  His leftover Congressional Campaign Fund (not sure of the exact amount but he was in Congress longer than Mark Green).  No problem for the State Election Commission then.  Hypocrisy thy sting is sharp! 

Tomorrow, a public meeting is being held on the proposed legislation to require Voter ID’s.  The usual suspects will be there to claim any such legislation is a disenfranchisement of the poor, downtrodden, minorities and of course those who by some medical malady are forced to vote multiple times in each election (Kinda like Kleptomania Ya Know).  To paraphrase Ricardo Pimentel, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Opinion Page Editor, let’s not proceed rashly on this.  Just because the election is a mess and it is our reporter documenting the horrors that existed on Election Day there is no reason to try and stop it.  How can we get more illegals involved if they have to prove they are citizens?   Ricardo ……….. Hmmmmmm!  Are you thinking what I am?

Drink Beer and Eat Cheese – See you soon,
