So...Wisconsin...the dynamic has changed?

The John Doe case is headed for the Supreme Court no matter how many obstacles the Wisconsin Supreme Court throw in its path....

The 5-4 dynamic of SCOTUS did not bode well for the chances of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin being overturned.

but then....

Justice Scalia dies...

It's 4-4 and that means deadlock until and unless a new justice is confirmed...will the case be put on hold in SCOTUS? or will it die? What the new dynamic?

John Nicholes asks "Which Shall Rule?"

link here to a great editorial..

Favorite quote:

"...who shall fill public stations educated and patriotic free men, or the feudal serfs of corporate capital?"

I nominate Charles Pierce to be an honorary Wisconsinite!

This guy said it clearly...no mealy-mouthed weasel words..he calls Walker and his ilk for what they are...

Wood County passes resolutions for referendas in November

Wood County voters will have the chance the ask the state to approve expansion of BadgerCare and approve raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour in November. Both resolutions passed the Board at their meeting last Tuesday.

The vote on Badgercare was 12-5 (with two Supervisors absent)

The vote on the minimum wages was a nail-biting 9-8.

We did our part....now the voters have to do theirs.

Walker "Quietly" signs voting restrictions...

and Beloit news reacts...appropriately..

Well, well, well.....

This could be a very interesting late summer/early fall...maybe a special election?

So...the Joint Finance Committee (JFC)

...voted to reject expansion of Medicaid and to endorse WALKERCARE.....

It costs the state $29 Million more.

It deprives thousands of health care.

Everybody from the Hospital Association, Legislative Audit Bureau, and the Rand Corporation say the state would be better off WITH the expansion...

but they voted it down anyway...

WAY TO GO BONEHEADS!

Hey Walker!

Suck
on
this!!

Knew this was coming

Looks like two more Central Wisconsin Paper Mills are in jeopardy. We knew there was trouble brewing when the Brokaw mill was closed. Looks like the source of the problem is "a Manhattan-based hedge fund" called "Starboard Value"...not port or home value...OFFSHORE value.... here's the link
