GOP Denies Jobs Creation Bills, Wastes Taxpayer Money, and An Open Letter To Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs!

In this meeting several issues were raised. The Democrats argued that if they can pass redistricting and several other bills in extraordinary session, they might as well pass some old bills that had bipartisan support and had the sole purpose of creating more jobs. Of course, the GOP said they did not want to work on the jobs creation bills they would rather work on quickly pushing through bills that hurt people rather than help.

Jeff Stone Admits to Disenfranchising Students and GAB Suspicion

So, I got out of the hospital earlier this week and back off to work. On one of my first days at the Capitol I got a rare interview with Assembly Representative Jeff Stone, who introduced AB7 or the Wisconsin Voter Disenfranchisement Act. One aspect of this bill that was not very widely covered was the disenfranchisement of students.

Update on the Memorial Union and Disability Harassment

This is about selectively targeting and enforcing policies they never care about on solely me. And it all started just because I want to live a normal life and not let my cardiac condition hinder my life so therefore use a Segway for mobility. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.

Dr.’s Getting Away With Murder and Disability Harassment!!!

The funny thing about Wisconsin Legislative Committee meetings is that the GOP is trying so hard to sneak as much as they can without publicity that you barely ever know what is actually going on. Today was another one of those days and tomorrow I will post video of the committee meeting, but please do share this blog post so that everyone know’s what is going on.

Great News: America Is Not Broke!

Great News: America Is Not Broke!

The Republicans keep peddling the lie that Democrats spend too much, which is laughable when you consider how much the last Republican administration expanded government and spent money. They used to tell us their bad decisions were all okay because we were ‘at war.’ Now they tell us that their bad policies are okay because we ‘are broke.’

The Tea Party Lies

The Tea Party Lies

I have always considered the Tea Party to be a little suspicious. Maybe it’s because I am originally from England, and cannot get over the naughty colonies dumping our precious tea into the sea in 1773. But in all seriousness the Tea Party, as we know them today, sprang forth soon after Barack Obama took office, and suddenly started protesting our terrible tax burden and seemed to believe that they had something in common with the colonists of 1773.

Evangelicals are the most conservative group in America and are the founding backbone of the Tea Party. However, evangelicals have still impacted liberal policies and some have been supporters of leftist movements. How could this be?

No Way Out: Private Prisons Or Conservative Sponsored Gulags?

Ever heard of private sector prisons? Up until a couple of years ago, I had always assumed that prisons were owned and operated by state and federal government. It was only while researching the Arizona death panels that I discovered the existence of privately run prisons.

Destroying Republican Myths on the Debt Ceiling

I’m beyond sick of Republicans on the debt ceiling. They claim to be the fiscally responsible ones, but earlier this year they voted to pass the Ryan Budget which would not only end Medicare, but would also add $5 Trillion to the national debt over the next 10 years. And now they’re perfectly comfortable with risking another economic catastrophe and recession just so they can keep tax breaks for a bunch of rich people.
