Illegal Immigration – Un Problema Creciente

Thursday, March 17th, 2011 says that’s how you say “A Growing Problem” in Spanish. Our writer took French in high school and college, and that wouldn’t have made much sense (unless we’re talking about our border with Quebec), so the free translation will have to do. If we just butchered the Spanish language, somos arrepentidos. Illegal immigration is […]

Budget Battles – Follow the Money

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

We’ll do a double post today to make up for it. Again, we’re sorry. We love answering questions and comments from our […]

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Let’s face it, for the vast majority of Americans, the extent of your knowledge on the inner workings of a nuclear power plant come from this man: Amazingly enough, nuclear catastrophe can’t be avoided by playing “Eeenie-Mini-Minie-Mo” or by using one’s own buttocks as a cork on a nuclear waste tank (both of which Mr. […]

Madness in Madison – Obama’s Lies

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Progressives are sometimes written off as liberal lackeys, falling step in line with the democratic party. It’s a stereotype, but like all stereotypes, it has its roots in fact.

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Over the past few months, it seems the mantra of the Republican Party has become “Elections Have Consequences”. Repubs across the nation (but especially in Wisconsin) have been using the slogan to justify governmental atrocities across the country, such as a new Michigan law which allows the governor to dissolve local governments and replace them […]

Madness in Madison – Scotty Doesn’t Know

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

We know some of you are probably sick of hearing us (and others) discuss the budget crisis in Madison, WI. We have had quite a few posts on the subject, so expect us to wrap that series up sometime in the next week. We’ll be doing an endgame analysis for both sides, and we have […]

Madness in Madison – The “Compromise”

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

We originally had created a post to go up yesterday praising Wis. Gov. Scott Walker for the first time since the creation of the blog. hasn’t been the most supportive of the Republican Governor over the last few weeks, and we felt it was fair and necessary to commend him on an act of […]

Thursday, March 10th, 2011 will do our best to provide you extensive coverage of the day’s events in Madison (before our writer passes out from exhaustion).  As you know from our previous post, the Republicans, led by Wis. Gov. Scott Walker, attempted to pull a fast one on democrats, the state of Wisconsin, and democracy as a whole […]

Madness in Madison – That Just Happened.

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Wow. I had a post all lined up and ready to go congratulating Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker after it was announced that he was actually making concessions to Democrats in regards to his Budget Repair Bill. I think I’ll share that post tomorrow, but given the events going on in Madison right now, such a […]
