Why you should be paying closer attention to ISIS/ISIL

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

The front pages of our newspapers are not filled with good news these days. There’s Ebola to worry about from Africa. Domestic abuse scandals with the NFL at home. But while those two issues seem to be occupying the public’s attention for now, a larger threat looms: the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (or […]

More Questions About Ferguson

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

In our last post, we were pretty harsh on the police officers of Ferguson and St. Louis. And, to be fair, understandably so. Our police officers are trained to protect and serve us, and the fact that they have taken several steps which seem to indicate they’re more interested in protecting themselves than protecting is […]

John Stewart and the Epic Fox News Takedown on Ferguson

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

At Political Progressives, we have a mixed opinion on The Daily Show. We’re disappointed that people are increasingly using his comedy show (and The Colbert Report) as their source of daily news. This is frustrating because Stewart and Colbert would be the first to tell you that their shows are not news shows at all. […]

Paul Ryan’s GOP Convention Speech: 4 Things We Learned

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Yesterday while our writer was at his local game store, he was pleasantly surprised to find that the Republican National Convention was playing on the small TV usually reserved for Packer games or other life changing events. The conventions are always fun to watch, and it’s interesting to listen to the myriad of speeches made […]

Ryan Blames Partisanship on Wrong Person and Party

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Paul Ryan’s selection as Mitt Romney’s Vice President made a huge splash in the media and political worlds last weekend. It was very unexpected, and everyone had to quickly analyze the new candidate because he was so far down on most people’s VP lists. Ryan played things smart over his first week as the new […]

Paul Ryan’s Budget and Why It’s Flawed

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Yesterday, we made a somewhat surprising post detailing why we think Mitt Romney’s selection of WI Rep. Paul Ryan was a good thing. Some of our readers initially thought that we meant that the selection was “good” for Democrats and that we were bashing the pick for Republicans. Not true. We really do feel that […]

Paul Ryan Is a Good Choice For Romney’s VP

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

At PoliticalProgressives, we’ve made some pretty bold (and very far-out, timewise) predictions about the 2012 Presidential Race. Many have been wrong, and we’ll fess up to it. But we definitely predicted (almost a year and a half ago!) that this race would come down to Romney and Obama – and that Obama would win. We […]

Wisconsin Gubernatorial Recall – Was it All For Nothing?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

As some of you who follow PoliticalProgressives know, our writer works for an educational camp during road construction season (or for those who live out of state: summer). While he enjoys the students very much during the eight weeks he works with them, they’ll be returning home very soon, and so after our summer recess, […]

What Wisconsin State Senator Pam Galloway’s Resignation Really Means

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Political Progressives was so disheartened when the Democrats fell just short of taking over the Senate in last year’s recall elections. It’s not like we bemoaned the fact that the Democrats were able to wrestle away two seats from Republicans in the middle of a term, but we weren’t ecstatic, either. 17-16 looked a whole […]

Wisconsin Republicans Attack Women With Multiple Pieces of Legislation

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Perhaps it’s a sign we’ve been involved in politics for far too long, but we’re actually not surprised at how little the average person knows about politics. The fact that the vast majority of our country’s citizens could not pass a citizen exam is old news; the fact that a majority of GOP voters in […]
