Hey, I'm new here...

By way of introduction, I am a new contributor. Let me just say that I rely on this site for my sanity ( which remains questionable at times ). There are lots of great posts and threads to appreciate here. Thanks to all who contribute and add to the discussions.

I live in Wisconsin on a small hobby farm with chickens and gardens. We are one of the states that tossed out the REDS this last election. Now those same REDS are trying to put limits on the incoming BLUE elected officials. Imagine that!

1. Welcome and congrats on the successes towards turning WI back to the progressive state it ONCE

was. I only hope the courts ultimately stand up against the blatant power plays that the state legislature is trying to enact during the lame duck session.

2. Back in the days Wisconsin was known as a oasis of progressives and liberals

I remember looking northward from Kansas (Jayhawk) and wishing I were in Madison. Not sure what happened in the 40+ years since.

What are your thoughts about if and how the new government/people can repair the harm done by Walker and the smash-and-grab gang?

Welcome! I'm still pretty new here myself.

8. Your profile says that you've been here since July 2017.

Is that a typo?

9. Welcome from another Wisconsin dweller.

I just called Walker’s office 3x to demand a veto on the slimy bill they dumped in the dead of night. First I got a busy signal. The next two calls rang over 30x with no answer—not even a recorded message or vm option. If anyone else wants to try, the # is 608-266-1212.

13. Isn't DU great!

I always get so much from this site. The news from all over the place and people from different backgrounds with good minds and memories help me in understanding politics, the law and history. I always go to this site for up to date news and how it is related to other things that never would have crossed my mind.
