We're all gonna die!!!!!!!!!!

Because, ya know, 12 hours ago it was dark and now it is light, and in the dark it was colder and now it is warmer.

Really, St. Al Gore said so.

I think it is time for Gore to be put in a nursing home.

From the Troglopundit...  No offense to Fred, but when I read that I thought: nope, that’s wrong. So I checked and: yep, he’s right.

May 8 Partisan Primary Rules.

There has been much conjecture about the rules for the partisan primary on May 8.  I have confirmed you MAY cross party vote.

For example in Racine you may vote for Scott Walker on the Repulican ticket and vote for Tamra Varebrook on the Democrat primary for State Senate. 

Here is a copy of the ballot, the only restriction stated is that you can only vote for one person for each office.  I have confirmed this with the City of Racine Clerk.

Get the word out folks, this is important!

How do enviromentalists leave a park on Earth Day?

Barrett Blames Caterpillar Layoffs on... Walker?!?

I just came from the unionista candidate forum over at the Bray Center, and was I ever glad to escape.  The inanity, self-serving arguments, whining, and pledges to again make the state safe for public employee unions to run roughshod over the taxpayers got old pretty quickly.  Neither Barret, nor Falk, nor LaFollete, nor what's her name (It's Vinehout, but don't bother remembering it because it won't matter in two weeks except as a question on the Belling New Year's Quiz), nor Arthur Kohl-Riggs, the Moes look-alike from "The Office" running as a fake Republican had any connection to fiscal or economic reality whatsoever.

Falk and Barret, the only two of the candidates who mattered, both were equally strident in their calls to return public employees to their previously pampered status, and equally evasive in how they were going to pay for it.  Falk kept repeating her mantra of repealing the "Walker Tax Cuts" - which, it should be pointed out, were enacted to repeal taxes passed by Doyle in the last year of his administration, which almost cost this state two major employers, Mercury Marine and Harley-Davidson.  Those taxes included the controversial "combined reporting" tax which would have created new Wisconsin tax liabilities for Wisconsin-based companies for all income earned worldwide - yet another attempt to make Wisconsin businesses less competitive globally.

The best denial of reality, however, had to come from from Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who was lamenting his receipt of a mass layoff notice from one of the city's major employers, mining equipment manufacturer Caterpillar.  He was quick to blame Governor Walker for this and other job losses, but failed to explain exactly how Walker's policies were responsible.  Let's see, what did Governor Walker do that might have harmed the mining equipment industry?  Did he obstruct the construction of a large iron mine in Wisconsin, that would have created thousands of jobs, both directly, and indirectly through sales of mining equipment?  Nope, sorry Mayor Barrett, that was your party, the democrats, who killed the mine, just like it was your party who killed the Keystone pipeline, just like it was your party whose anti-business choke the golden goose strategies have killed or driven off so many other Wisconsin companies, and with them the jobs that support the Wisconsin taxpayers that make the public sector possible.

So Barrett blames Walker for something directly attributable to the democrats in the legislature - and the crowd of unionistas wiggle their fingers occupy-style in glee.  That is what passes for critical thought by the left in Wisconsin - and that's exactly what we saw on display at the Bray Center this evening.
