Last week, former Governor Tommy Thompson endorsed Brad, saying, “The people of Wisconsin deserve an Attorney General dedicated to the public safety of our great state… I’m proud to call Brad my friend, and I’m happy to endorse his candidacy for Wisconsin Attorney General.”
Please see video of the press conference with Governor Thompson in the link below:
In 1993, an in-depth 200-page report was delivered to the Milwaukee County Board highlighting critical flaws with the county’s mental health services program. This report, which is referred to as the master plan, laid out a blueprint for desperately needed reforms to a program that provides some of the most important services the county is charged with delivering.
At the time, consumer groups, advocates, service providers and local elected officials agreed that serious problems existed within the program requiring major reforms to the delivery of mental health services in the county.

January 2012. In the ad, Governor Walker takes his message directly to Wisconsin voters by laying out a number of the promises he made during his 2010 campaign, how those promises have been fulfilled, and the positive results the state has seen as a result of what the campaign is calling, “bold and necessary reforms.”
A new year will bring in a new agenda for Governor Scott Walker, who has plans to overhaul the state’s tax code. His major priority in 2014 will be laying the ground for work tax reform in 2015. Walker says eliminating the state sales tax could hold the key to job creation.
“I made a clear objective that every year I’m in office, I want to see the overall tax burden in the state — I want to cut taxes,” said Walker. “Every year I’m in office I want to continue to see the overall tax burden go down.”
Walker says he’s looking at everything from eliminating the state income tax to drastically reducing state property taxes.

Dear fellow Republican,
My name is Scott Feldt, and I am asking for your support. I wanted you to be one of the first to know that I am considering a run to be your next State Treasurer. I am the current Deputy State Treasurer, and have worked in the Treasurer’s office for more than 10 years - that means that I have the experience it takes to serve the people of Wisconsin.
The people of Wisconsin need a State Treasurer who will be a financial watchdog - and that’s what you’ll get if you elect me. I know how hard you work for your money, and you deserve a Treasurer who will keep an eye on your money.
I’m asking for your support because I know how important local county parties are. As a member and former chairman of the Rock County Republican Party, I know how many hours we put in, and how strongly we believe in our principles. I want you to know that as your State Treasurer, I will always approach the job with fiscally sound, conservative ideas - the kind of ideas that keep our state moving forward.
In the next two weeks, I will be announcing my campaign, and launching a website. In the meantime, I want to give you my e-mail address in case you have any questions about me or my campaign. My e-mail address is email@example.com.

Not only is the Kyoto Protocol technically flawed, the so-called science behind it is utter twaddle. Never mind complicated things like non-linear mathematics or, indeed, mathematics of any sort. The alarmists can’t possibly know how to predict the future of Earth’s climate because they can’t explain its past.
At one point the UN’s famous Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change tried to tell us the climate story was pretty simple. Their infamous “hockey stick” graph showed temperature constant for 1,000 years, then shooting up sharply in the 20th century as Industrial Man started pumping CO2 and other GHGs into the atmosphere. On top of the technical jiggery-pokery, this account brazenly misrepresented the past.
As the IPCC itself admitted in 1990, we’ve long known about a “Medieval Warm Period” starting around 1000 AD followed by a “Little Ice Age” from about 1600 until the mid-19th century. The former explains why the Viking settlement flourished then perished in Greenland. And slower tree growth producing denser wood during the latter may account for the superb resonance of Stradivarius violins. But whatever made the Medieval Warm Period warm, it certainly wasn’t manmade GHGs. Nor did we cause the Little Ice Age.
So ask the warmers with their spuriously precise predictions of a “greenhouse effect” involving floods, famines, hurricanes a’blowin and a bad moon rising: Can you plug in known year 1000 data and have your computer model produce a Medieval War Period then let New Yorkers walk across the ice from Manhatten to Staten Island in 1780 and drop snow on Dickens’ London Christmases? If not, why should anyone believe you can plug in year 2000 data and predict 2215 or 2875?

Go to a Wisconsin State Park and ask a naturalist. They will say that back then MILE-THICK glaciers covered this state 15,000 years ago. Not just 6-12 inches of fluffy white stuff. MILE-THICK ICE!
I’m glad that the Native Americans who were here at the time did something to make all of that ice disappear!
We are looking for volunteers to test it and provide some feedback. We are just looking for an hour of their time, and the application is very simple to use.
