in 44th place for job development. Meanwhile the new Republican hero Walker is following exMinnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty’s lead by preparing for a run for the next presidential nomination.
Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker wasn’t mentioned in this story yesterday on the failure of Wisconsin to make good on its financial pledges to the fledgling Kestral Aviation of Superior. Maybe Klapmeier is afraid the Governor will punish his company if he blames the Governor personally rather than the state for reneging on his word.
I’m going to speculate about Governor Walker who has impressed me with his Carrie Nation like zealotry. I noticed something odd about his eyes in a recent television interview. They looked as though he was averting his gaze from a reporter by tilting his head a bit. I’d noticed it before but this time it […]
After I was nearly finished scraping and painting the sides of my house this summer I began thinking that I should have at least worn a mask while scraping to avoid inhaling lead. Then I thought it was probably not that big a deal because lead was removed from paint a long time ago. Well, […]
Disclaimer First the Unions in Duluth pushed the Red Plan for construction jobs at the eventual expense of a hundred teaching jobs. Now the Public Employee Unions are flexing their muscle to prevent ISD 709 from getting back some state money for its useless Central High School. Its as though they are telling local pols: […]
Snake in the Grass’s defender writes intelligently and I can fault few of the arguments laid out. But the flaw I think is this and it comes in one of the longer paragraphs. It says: “Now we have buildings and nothing else. My granddaughter attends East High School and is very disappointed with her education. […]
… and I’ve been looking for the ball outside the stadium in the parking lot. Virgil Swing is an old editor for the Duluth News Tribune. Retired now he offers practical editorials for the Little DNT called the Budgeteer which is published each saturday. He offered up a lot of information about the school board […]
This morning I got a very brief peek at the news after waking up at 4AM to head to the Ft. Lauderdale airport and my frigid return to Duluth. I was very impressed to see the Strib far ahead of the Duluth News in covering the sorry plight of the Duluth Teacher’s pension. Here’s the […]
…clowns. Mitt Romney leads a gang and scissors off the long bleached hair of a lonely lispy kid back in his high school days. Can’t remember doing it but sorry now if he did. Michelle Bachmann applies for Swiss dual citizenship for her kids who think it would be cool then cancels it when fearing […]
Its hard to believe that its only been a couple days since I got waxed last Saturday. I’ve been in non stop school board related meetings since Monday and when I wasn’t doing that I was doing yard work and gardening in the sunshine. I generally woke up in the middle of each succeeding night […]
I gave up trying to fall back asleep at 3 and padded downstairs to read the third chapter of Dark Money. The first two chapters gave me the background of the 800 pound gorillas of the big money movement to turn us back to the Middle Ages. They covered the Kochs and Richard Mellon Scaife. […]
. . . are busy alienating the people who elected them last year.
…until Republican Scott Walker was elected Governor. I asked Vic to tell me if he knew whether Governor Walker campaigned on a platform of repealing the collective bargaining rights of public employees. The answer seems to be not really or maybe just barely if you could read between the lines. Thanks for the link, Vic. […]
