We’re Thankful for Global Warming

Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.

We’re talking Ice Age. During the several (yes, more than one) ice ages that Wisconsin has experienced, glaciers reached as far south as southern Illinois.

This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.

More glacial maps from NationalAtlas.gov and UW-Green Bay.

Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?

Walker for President? WI Gov’s Rise Has Similarities to Reagan

He isn’t the great communicator, but his record, abilities, and the opponent’s situation mimic the 1980 race.

The “elephant in the room,” now that Scott Walker has won a remarkable third election as governor of Wisconsin in only four years, is the presidential election in 2016. Well before the 2014 midterms, speculation was rife about Walker’s possible presidential ambitions, and his several trips to neighboring Iowa did nothing to quell it. It is widely assumed that Walker’s possible presidential ambitions are a major reason the national Democratic Party and its various third-party interest groups expended enormous resources in the unsuccessful attempts to defeat him.

There are many reasons for the Democrats to be terrified of a possible Walker candidacy for president. Most of those reasons can be summarized with two words: “Ronald Reagan.”

Should Governments Be Allowed to Steal Your Property?

I’ve already written about the despicable practice of “civil forfeiture,” which allows governments to confiscate the property of innocent people who have not been convicted of any crime.

And I’ve cited great columns on the issue from George Will and John Stossel., as well a sobering report on the topic from the Wall Street Journal.

Now the Institute for Justice has a video that should outrage any decent person.

It’s examples of government thuggery like this that make me a libertarian. You should be one as well.

Wisconsin Moves Forward!

It’s an exciting time to be a conservative Republican! We now have the opportunity to show the citizens of Wisconsin that once again, they have chosen correctly. Republicans will now deliver on our promises to create jobs and reform government.

Once again, I have been honored and humbled by the constituents in the 63rd Assembly District to serve on their behalf in the Wisconsin State Assembly. It has been a privilege to represent Racine County for the past decade and I will continue to fight for the hard-working taxpayers of our area.

Thanks to the amazing turnout of conservatives across the state and the great Republican team lead by Governor Walker, Assembly Republicans grew its majority. The GOP won 63 Assembly seats, the largest Assembly Republican majority since 1957. All of our incumbents won re-election, Republicans won all of the former GOP seats, and we defeated three Democratic incumbents. Our incoming class of freshmen legislators stands at 18 representatives. That’s the second largest class since 1977. The largest was in 2011 with 25 new representatives. Together, we will work across the aisle to improve Wisconsin without compromising our conservative ideals. The 2015-2016 legislative session begins on Monday, January 5, 2015 with the inauguration of the 102nd Wisconsin State Legislature.

Red Wave Sweeps Wisconsin

Walker voters definitively rejected all statewide opposition to his policies.

A massive rebuke to the state Democratic Party, its statist policies, and the unrelentingly vicious, negative campaign in which they engaged was delivered last night by the voters of Wisconsin. They re-elected Governor Scott Walker — by the largest margin yet — for the third time in four years.

Yet the win was much more substantial than that. Every Republican incumbent running in the state was re-elected. All but one statewide office (the largely ceremonial secretary of State) up for election was won by Republicans. The GOP picked up two Senate seats in the state legislature (giving the Republicans a 19:14 majority) and three seats in the state Assembly, where they had already enjoyed a more comfortable margin. And the new members make the majority considerably more conservative than it had been previously.

Here are the results with additional commentary:

Burke Campaign’s Last Refuge: The Nazi Card?

Her final ad is a shameless exercise in mendacity.

Yes, a swastika ad. First, the background.

Mary Burke’s thin résumé could only be highlighted with one claim: as an executive of the Trek bicycle firm, she managed their European operations so brilliantly that sales rose exponentially under her watch. Surely such an exemplary manager and problem-solver was just the ticket to serve as Democratic Governor Jim Doyle’s commerce secretary, and is now the person to end the political divisiveness which has characterized Scott Walker’s first four years.

Racially Incendiary Burke Flyer Seeks to Rally Black Vote

A new low has been reached with a flyer targeting the black community.

With Democrat Mary Burke increasingly desperate to the point of panic, given the recent revelations of her mendacity concerning her career at her family business, and the embarrassment of President Obama’s flop at North Division High School in Milwaukee’s inner city, both of which preceded news that the prestigious and generally very accurate Marquette University Law School poll shows her trailing Governor Scott Walker by a full seven percentage points among those voters who will walk over broken glass, if necessary, to get to the polls, a new flyer exploits the deaths of three young black men and perverts history in an attempt to shore up her numbers in Wisconsin’s African-American community.

Desperation: Ad Claims Scott Walker Would Taint Your Kids’ Water

The Wisconsin left satirizes itself with an ad for the ages.

The Wisconsin gubernatorial race is receiving huge amounts of cash on both sides. In addition to the direct spending by the campaigns themselves, various outside advocacy groups have pumped significant money into the race. Mary Burke has received support from expected groups such as the SEIU, AFSCME, the AFL-CIO umbrella organization, the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), EMILY’s List, and other left-of-center operations.
