Bordering on Madness

I’m sure that some of you pumped your fist or nodded your head approvingly when you heard that the Pentagon is sending 52-hundred active duty military troops to the US-Mexico border in advance of the “migrant caravan” making its way through Mexico.  Now that they are there, what do you expect them to do?  …READ MORE

LUDKE CONVICTED

A MILWAUKEE MAN IS FOUND GUILTY OF CONSPIRING TO HELP ISIS.  JASON LUEDKE IS CONVICTED IN MILWAUKEE FEDERAL COURT ON ONE COUNT OF PROVIDING MATERIAL HELP OR RESOURCES TO A TERROIST GROUP.  LUEDKE AND A CO-CONSPIRATOR AGREED THAT THEY WOULD TRAVEL FROM MILWAUKEE TO MEXICO AND THEN INTO SYRIA AND IRAQ TO JOIN ISIS.  THEY…READ MORE

Rising Together

It was Winston Churchill that gave us the phrase “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”.  Well folks, we have failed to learn our lessons from post-World War I Europe.  Based on trends in modern politics, it appears I will have to explain.  In the ashes of war-torn Europe–and continuing…READ MORE

HIGHWAY 23 REPORT

Who’s the Star Here?

After three high-profile campaign appearances by heavy hitters in both political parties, I have to wonder what, if anything, our Wisconsin candidates gained from them.  Ostensibly, the visits from Senator Bernie Sanders, President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama were supposed to boost their parties’ respective candidates–but if anything, they magnified some weaknesses–and only…READ MORE

S%*t’s Getting Real

I hope everyone realizes what happened this week.  We saw attempted widespread political assassination on a scale not seen since John Wilkes Booth shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theater, while his conspirators tried to kill Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William Seward all on the same night.  That was done with the…READ MORE

Protecting the Paint

For the vast majority of us, the white lines are nothing more than paint.  A visual representation of the kind of white noise and distractions that we tune out on a daily basis.  To those with the lines in front of their homes, they are a barrier to enjoying the full use of a public…READ MORE

The Employee Caravan

While President Trump wants to send the military to the Mexico border to greet the so-called “Migrant Caravan” from Central America, I think we should send different groups down there to meet them.  Every employment agency and Department of Workforce from the lower 48 states should be on-hand at the border ready to take the…READ MORE

For Want of a Nail….

When I was a kid I read a nursery rhyme called “For Want of a Nail”.  It tells the story of how not having a nail to properly shoe a horse prevents an important message during war from being delivered and a kingdom falling to the enemy.  It was meant to teach us that the least…READ MORE

Concerned Man #2

In the new, new, new economy, it’s important to have what the millenials like to call a “side hustle”–a part-time job to help you make ends meet–because you can’t be expected to pay for your student loans for that advanced degree in a field that you will never be able to find a job in,…READ MORE
