Guess what?

I did this for Mother’s Day. And now, just in time before Father’s Day. Now for every father in the building have a great Father’s Day to you all. But before that happens, I’m about to scratch my head again of the most recent events. By the way, there will be no same neckties! Not in that order.😉

Father’s Day falls of Juneteenth Day this year. Who’s down going after church?

AGAIN: If all lives really matter, again what is up with the still hate of Black Citizens?

For those watching Voltron: Legendary Defender, can you catch up on the 80’s version that Gen X knows?

For the LGBT folks: would you fly this flag?

Milwaukee: are you ready for Summerfest?

Still can’t stand the hypocrites in church huh? Do those have hypocrites in the workplaces also? Even at your owned business? Or the Hangouts? Don’t worry I’ll wait. Especially if you are on Facebook or Instagram talking comments.

Is Lebron James ready for another ring, or will Chef Curry have the final say in Game 7?

Look America: so you still can’t stand bathroom issues with the Transgender folks. My question is, when you were using the bathrooms at public places or at your JOB, haven’t you noticed that for years?

I need to ask: why many people think that the Steph Curry Under Armour White Shoes is ugly? Are we back in High School?!!! I can hear this now: Look at the white shoes! Look at the white shoes! Look at the white shoes! Lord.

 

The GOP is imploding. Good! Have they learned their lessons, yet all the mess out of Donald Trump?

CALLOUT: Why isn’t Children’s Day is acknowledged more like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day? And Children’s Day is on June 12th.

Has the United Methodist Church listened to the concerns of the demonstrations of the Black Lives Matter movement out at the General Conference in Oregon? And WILL that same influence impact on every UMC Conference, and specifically at EVERY BLACK UNITED METHODIST CHURCH?

Donald Trump is still taking it to hole. A black hole. Will you supporters actually pull out of the hole?

It’s stupid. Those that hated Muhammad Ali for years all because he didn’t join the military, or being so radical. So what? Just because those didn’t serve, doesn’t mean they don’t get a pass.

If Milwaukee just now getting to the bottom of the lead pipes, why wasn’t this discovered WAY before 2015? And you know what I’m talking about.

Black folks: We should adopt the montage “Never Forget” in regarding slavery, or concerns or anything that those might say get over it. Just like jews with the holocaust. Can we?

We know the Orlando shootings made the worst list of massacres in US History. But…..you know there been others, right? Wounded Knee, Black Wall Street? Just saying.

August 9th is coming Milwaukee. Who is really ready to vote?

Wisconsin Democrat contenders Russ Feingold and Jason Fields want their seats back. Could this happen?

Is America really that great, that can be great again? or will we be down with the HRC?

Where are the “I Love Dad” Pics on Facebook?

Will the United States finally adopt “International Men’s Day” overall?

Will BET actually Bring it for it’s Prince tribute?

Sheriff David Clarke will fully endorse Donald Trump for President. OH REALLY?!  That truth will rear it’s ugly head.

MAJOR QUESTION: They say June is Men’s Health Month. I knew this years ago with the light blue ribbons. Why is this occasion is not as popular as breast cancer awareness month?

Dang what is up with these folks still trying to get folks hooked up in the wrong places?!

Can the Single folks have a national day or month without all the marriage hassle talk? Same stuff everyday.

I like seeing all the rainbow stuff glow on buildings in honor of Pride Month. Will this be more of this every year? Not just for those whom passed on.

Can Milwaukee have real meaningful jobs like of Chicago, DC, New York, LA, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, NASA, Instagram, WWE, or Facebook?

Again, no offense but why is Mother’s Day is slightly higher than Father’s Day?

Will the workplaces and the churches finally accept introverts? As well as more Seasoned Vets who can still be available to work and do more techie stuff over 40 years old like the Millennials?

Is Milwaukee ready to go through another missing element of African World Festival, AGAIN? You really can’t have a “City of Festivals” without black folks!

Midtown and Northridge haven’t been the same as usual in Milwaukee. What is it gonna take besides talking?!

I know it’s past, but can the sports universe remind Ayesha Curry that when Golden State beat OKC in the playoffs was considered “Rigged?”

We know the Milwaukee Streetcar is coming. AGAIN. But why there are those in the Black Community still think it would not benefit them? I need ask, are those IN the black community willing to work on the Streetcar project and later ride it in 2021 in Bronzeville? (Without complaining)

wp-1466277326667.jpg

Everybody is still tripping about this “Father’s Day for Single Mothers”. Are we in the black community that sensitive about a darn greeting card from 2011? If I recall, I blogged about this 5 years ago. Go back and read it.fathers-day-card-for-mothers

Or is it we knew someone that was or is in that category?

The first time I heard “Happy Father’s Day to the Mother’s” was around 1996. And it was in church and there was no complaints. So look, we know that Father’s Day is for the Fathers. The Grandfathers, Uncles, Male Mentors, Single Dads, Male Cousins who are Fathers, Foster Dads, Godfathers, and anyone that looks out like a Father (yes this includes single mothers), Community Fathers, etc.

If you are single black man WITHOUT kids, does that make you a father?

 

Other than that, enjoy your day Fathers.


This is just for the current residents of Wisconsin. Just today, one of our State Republican Representatives, Janel Brandtjen had this idea that about cutting funding to the city of Milwaukee in order for her district of Menomonee Falls to be free from time. From the crime that is going on.

What is she talking about, you ask?

I was reading the Urban Milwaukee Webpage about this “idea” and from the looks of it, in my opinion: she is in denial. Plus check out the story below:

Last week homeowners in Washington County were held hostage in their homes by the actions of 5 young criminals from Milwaukee. All night long the Milwaukee Police, SWAT teams and law enforcement from Washington County combed the darkness for 5 youths with guns. Families were forced to unlock their gun cabinets and instruct their loved ones to shoot to kill.

The violence and the crime that has plagued Milwaukee for decades has now begun to spill over into Milwaukee’s suburbs. I lay the responsibility for this growing and out of control problem at the door of the Mayor’s office. Mayor Barrett may not care about the safety of his family but I certainly do care about mine.

Mayor Barrett, the people of southeast Wisconsin will not sit by and watch your administration destroy the entire region with failed liberal policies and a 10 second “Tommy Tough Talk” sound bite. If you do not fill the hundreds of vacant police officer positions, apprehend and arrest car thieves, demand prison for repeat criminals and start standing up to the judges who let repeat offenders off easy you will be in my opinion “assisting and enabling” the very criminals who are responsible for the record number of shootings, car jacking’s and murders.

I will be openly advocating for funding cuts to Milwaukee unless steps are taken to dramatically cut crime in Milwaukee. I will no longer sit by while you destroy Milwaukee and its flourishing suburbs. I cannot justify financing your failed policies in Milwaukee until you take public safety seriously.

I got to say this and I’m going to be unapologetic: WHITE WOMAN PLEASE!

Seriously, State Republican Representative  Janel Brandtjen?! You obviously think that the dollars that you “somewhat support” would be cut off from Menomonee Falls to Milwaukee due to Milwaukee’s problems with the young black folks that hid away in YOUR COUNTY from the police? And you believe that the crime from Milwaukee is harming Menomonee Falls! You must be, and I must say, “STUCK ON STUPID!”

How many times have I heard and read about in the Milwaukee Suburbs about drug crimes and also many types of assault that occurred in YOUR AREA?

How many times, have I heard and read about racism in YOUR AREA that kept popping up?!

How many times have I heard about the concerns of ALCOHOL or Drinking and Driving that has occurred not only in the suburbs, but also IN YOUR AREA?!

And you honestly think that cutting funding from Milwaukee will solve this problem and just go away without any harm or concern. Like it’s nothing. REALLY?!

Don’t worry I’ll wait!

You said in your “commentary of denial” that Mayor Barrett needs to do something about this crime thing that is not only harming Milwaukee but also the suburbs. Well let me say this as a Milwaukee RESIDENT: We all know that Mayor Barrett is handling his “Mayor Business” here in Milwaukee. We know this. We know what is going on a day by day basis. Good or bad. By the way, excuse my French: What the hell have you done? What the hell have you done to fix or curb the problems with employment that disrepects the VALOR of African-American Applicants that want to work IN YOUR CITY? Out of Milwaukee? I demand the answer to that instead of you making this demand of you pulling dollars from Milwaukee. If the dollars you demand to be pulled from Milwaukee and if concerns the safety part of it, that would be trouble. Oh, I don’t agree with Gov. Numb Nuts, but even he feels that pulling dollars from Milwaukee due to crime is a bad idea. WOW Scott Walker, the Marquette University Dropout made one little sense that this idea is bad. Now if Scott Walker would have got his brain straight about 5 years ago about the High Speed Rail, we would be in business NOW getting from Milwaukee to Madison faster than clunking cars. Open for business, probably?

State Representative Janel Brandtjen: If you really want to share your “fighting crime” techniques so bad, then go get your crew. Mayor Barrett will get the Milwaukee crew. Either meet in Milwaukee or Menomonee Falls, or even at the State Capitol. Let’s be like “Real Wisconsin folks” and bring all of our ideas to the table to bring in stopping the violence in the Southeastern Part of Wisconsin. Not only that, don’t be surprised if any of the Black families from either side will show up!

Hey State Rep: your move if you want it. Put down that conservative mantra like a bad rash of hate, and meet up. And that goes for ANY rep that has a dislike for Milwaukee. Are we Wisconsinites that carry the motto Forward also?

Put the money where the mouth is.

 

 


It’s time for a Double Take:  This is the post Easter Edition. If your belly is full from all that Easter Dinner, then it’s time to hit the track. Get out and jog. Ok back to the thing: Here we go. Time to put the world events on play and talk about Milwaukee and part of Wisconsin.

Take one: Us folks in Wisconsin are scratching our heads about the attitude of Senator Chris Larson. May I add, he running for office in Milwaukee County. Via the County Executive seat held by Chris Abele.

In the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Black Radio Stations 860 WNOV, there have been a distain message about the words like this to Senator Lena Taylor in regarding this:

“Are you on your meds today?”

Meds? What Meds?!!! Really?

And the last thing that our Senator said that “Enjoy your last day here!”

This was made public and also via Text.

For the last couple of days the news of this incident has hit not only WNOV,  but also the Black Milwaukee Newspapers. The Milwaukee Community Journal also picked up the story in a long sentence via the title, “The World According to Chris Larson” and all this stuff that has been noticed and publicly summarized is coming out. Matter of fact, it’s really out. It’s been out. It’s been out since day one. Now we got this election coming up on April 5th, and yes we got decisions to make. However, I will NOT support any candidate that has personal gut check thoughts, mean spirited feelings toward another person, like Senator Lena Taylor. I’ll say this, I’ve seen her work and ideas plus accomplishments as a State Senator. And a black mother woman! Now also, another scene in regarding Chris Larson, is about former State Senator Nikya Harris-Dodd’s Hair. Really?! Being all nappy. Seriously?! And I’m reminding myself that this is a Election Season.

For all you Chris Larson fans, that you probably casted a vote for him, I know he’s your pick. But if he is really your pick, YOU BETTER HOLD HIS ACTIONS VERY WELL like you “checked” Lena Taylor. And you know who you are! Speaking of that, let these videos do the talking in which has everyone paid attention:

Exhibit A: This one was on March 20th, and yes there were some folks who felt that an apology was need to commence.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/pv9jsag9yjpv7vk/20160320_154114.mp4?dl=0

 

Exhibit B:  This is the most recent one.

 

In this clip, it was like fireworks about to be set off! With this “apology” coming from Chris Larson to me was kind of weak. I don’t think if he’s sincere with an apology that has the black community on high alert. I don’t know if he knows that his “apology” is coming so late after all of this. All of this about Lena Taylor, Black Hair, and anything that black period in Milwaukee in a negative effect is so dumb. And also may I add that this on the side of the Democrats in Wisconsin? There are those in the state, that has been widely pointed out, that like Republicans, Democrats can be jerks and racists too. Especially those who are “Progressives”,  “Liberals” and so forth. Just saying. Now for you Republicans and Independents folks, don’t come to me and say I told you so! I’ve been knowing this! Thanks to the black radio stations and networks.  Like I said, I’ve been knowing this. And also, I’ve been knowing that there are some who are willing to “Sellout” to get their jobs saved for endorsements. Trust me, I’ve read about it. Even it concerns black politicians and yes black reps. That is what is happening here! And that makes the community even more scarred like those who don’t like working with black folks at the jobs. Or placing the black kids in other schools, or yes even the church, and also that particular group that they think  wouldn’t fit in. Trust me! I’ve seen it and read about it. What this angle of Chris Larson, Sen. Lena Taylor, or many others who aligned themselves to be saved up for that safe box for him or anyone else to go against things, will be realized, it was all dumb and stupid!

And again, an election is coming up.

Take two:  This hat though. REALLY?

As I was eating my dinner on Easter, I turned to this pic of Lalah Hathaway wearing a bucket hat that had the Greek Letters of Alpha Phi Alpha on it.

This is the pic that was deemed upsetting straight from Instagram.

image

I need all of you Alpha Phi Alphas to settle down. I need all of you A Phi A’s to help me to understand while your mottos and quotes are: “Onward and Upward”, and “Ice Cold”, and saying the numbers of 06! And being in the first of the Divine 9 that also says “First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All” with the seven jewels booming, why the HELL are you upset about Lalah Hathaway wearing her father’s hat of your Fraternity?! Many of you I bet didn’t know who Donny Hathaway was until you read his name!

CALLOUT: Like my mother used to say, I’ll give you something to cry about!

All she was doing was paying respects to her father. What is wrong with that? Nothing! I can understand the rules and regulations that the attire you wear is only for you. And yes, you worked hard for it. Some of you were “pledged harshly” for it. Admit it. But why the uproar of this? Have the lessons of your founders influenced this to be idiots of a hat?!

If I see you per say, wearing the Cross and Flame of the United Methodist Church (my denomination) and you wear like it’s nothing, I will call you out on it. I will school you no matter you had no knowledge of it! Or if see you wearing a UW-Stout shirt like it’s nothing, don’t expect me to get at you guys and asking do you know where the college is? Hint: its in Wisconsin. And that goes for the rest of the Divine 9 groups. You all supposed to help the uplifting and inspiration of the Community in all, but with this like any other groups, anyone can be a jerk and cry all because of an attire like a hat! Good Lord!!!

I still respect you. All of you have done work in the community, nothing but respect. And if I was part of that with this outburst, I just shut my mouth. It is pointless. That is not what I would agree to joining up.

Can I get an Amen?

I”ll bet many are laughing at this and saying that this “incident” is nothing more than a non-issue. What is a real issue: try voting. Try going to a doctor, both men and women who haven’t got one yet and fear of going. (Hint, it’s not just men fearing) Try clearing up a reason why Pfife Dawg’s death at 45 should not be a lone reason, but others like him should be mad because they’re names aren’t being mentioned the way they’ve checked out with precautions of Diabetes! Try going out and get lost folks back into Church. Try educating our young boys(and girls) not to drop out of school. Try finding a trade, a job, a house, start a family, raise/adopt kids, and I’ll bet many are not doing those because they don’t wanna be soft. Should I start a license to ill? Hell no! Or even tell Introverts like me that its alright not to apologize for being quiet.

Some of you, whom probably put Lalah Hathaway on blast over a f*ing hat must be those young frats. Older cats know well. Yeah I got respect for the Divine 9, and maybe probably getting a spot, but this you need to work on your skills! Lalah is not the problem. Nor probably didn’t know the rules. Who is the problem you ask? Alphas: Look in the mirror.

Get it together. You got kids watching.


Can I just vent a little? Sheriff David Clarke’s freaking head needs examination!

Yeah I said it!

I hate to say it Milwaukee County, but what were we thinking in which this dude got in again. Now I know the sympathizers might come and say, “oh at least he’s telling the truth…..” Don’t know what I’m talking about? Look at this video footage:

You see this BS? Seriously?!!

You talk about Sub-human creeps?

In the video, he also said that about police brutality: ‘There is no police brutality in America’. He also said that the President is playing the race game, in his regarding the subject of #BlackLivesMatter. Oh, he also claimed like after January 2017, when he claims that the “nightmare” will disappear.

I call the B.S. Card on this one!

Sheriff David Clarke, the second black sheriff in Milwaukee County is nothing more than a misguided dude. I’m sorry he is. I thought he was “voteable”, but I was wrong. I feel that those whom voted for him the most probably got more votes in the outline suburbs surrounding Milwaukee than in the Metro Area of Milwaukee! And those of us in the Black Community IN Milwaukee probably got the worst mistake by accepting that in voting for him by being a black man in office. Is that the reason? I’ll never forget the acceptance speech after he won. And I’ll never forget what the late Annette “Polly” Williams said that she voted for Clarke because he’s a black man, whom also supported the Sheriff’s vote to stay in office. She said that on her own radio segment in Milwaukee awhile back. Now I know what you’re thinking: “Hey man, she was a black woman voting for a black man, and served her district well in her tenure”. I get that. That was her viewpoint. But  I also realized that others like Polly probably felt the same way in Milwaukee’s Black Community. With all due respect to her and her legacy, and have nothing against that. But right now, I hope that folks are beginning to wake up with the truth stating that the Second Black Sheriff in Milwaukee County History is not really out for black folks!

And also, why wouldn’t Sheriff Clarke wouldn’t go on black talk shows like Roland Martin’s to talk about #BlackLivesMatter? Just like all the Bill O’Reily fanatics, the Rush Limbaughs, Ann Coulters, Glenn Becks, and others of that so-called right wing media mess of The Blaze and Fox News, that talk a lot of their game being anti-black this and that, to not having a sit down convo with someone like Roland who pulls no punches in talking about the real deal about the purpose or goal of saying and displaying #BlackLivesMatter. But they won’t! They are scared to death of black media folks who want to challenge them on their commentary! And lately, Sheriff Clarke said this tweet about the movement joining up with ISIS:

image

Really, Sheriff Clarke? The Black Lives Matter movement will join up with ISIS?!!! How stupid and pathetic of this high ranking COUNTY OFFICIAL thinking that this would happen?!!!! Yo, if anyone voted up for him last year, or endorsed him in your Milwaukee radio spots last year, you should have thought twice! Polly Williams has turned over in her grave like crazy right now. SMH! I have to ask this Milwaukee County: Is electing Sheriff David Clarke (yet again) plus what he said here, a real conclusion that really will get Milwaukee’s long shot of jobs?  I’ll say it: No. Not a chance. This is an embarrassment!

In regards to President Obama’s stance on the Black Lives Matter movement: it got a boost. Last week as we all know, The President did indeed nodded that there are issues that the African-American community faces each day that goes unnoticed. In the interview, he said this from the article of the Washington Post:

Sometimes, like any of these loose organizations, some people pop off and say dumb things but … on the other hand though, it started being lifted up as ‘these folks are opposed to police, they’re opposed to cops and all lives matter,’ so the notion was that somehow saying black lives matter was reverse racism or suggesting that other people’s lives don’t matter or police officers lives don’t matter,” Obama said. “And whenever we get bogged down in that kind of discussion, we know where that goes, that’s just down the old trap.”

Obama went on to suggest that organizers of Black Lives Matter — which he declared a “social media movement” — do value all lives and do support good law enforcement. But he added, repeating a line he has used often when discussing issues of race and policing, that concerns about policing and profiling in minority communities are real and valid.

“I think that the reason that the organizers used the phrase Black Lives Matter was not because they were suggesting that no one else’s lives matter … rather what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that is happening in the African American community that’s not happening in other communities,” Obama said. “And that is a legitimate issue that we’ve got to address.

And guess what, ladies and gentlemen: we are still addressing the legitimate issues! It doesn’t matter what year or era it is. Even if it’s Police Brutality! I’ve seen scenes of police videos in Milwaukee of the Police Department punching a black woman in the back of a squad car. Even a California Highway Patrolman punching a black woman on the ground in broad daylight! Remember in Milwaukee in 2004 when Frank Jude Jr was beaten up by the police way back? That happened. Tell me I’m wrong! Beatings. Brutalities. And Sheriff David Clarke thinks it’s been handled in the 60’s and it’s gone? Obviously, he had forgot about Rodney King!

It is no wonder that the head of the County Sheriff himself needed to be examined. And to those that voted him into office yet again, your heads need to be examined! It’s coming like a evil Halloween smile on a Jack-O-Lantern.

WAKE UP!

Oh, and Happy Halloween by the way.


In a recent 21-10 decision, the Wisconsin State Senate has passed a funding bill that will effect the ongoing process to build a new arena in Downtown Milwaukee. Yes, I’m referring to the new Bucks playhouse. Not just for the team, but also for the future concerts, events and maybe a future WWE Pay-Per-View. The Reaction of the news were mixed. Some should say that the owners of the team should have paid for the full tab instead of the tax payers. WAIT A MINUTE: remember how Miller Park got started? Same thing. Taxpayers. Probably the same taxpayers who first complained and partially will like the investment. I think the same thing will happen here.

Now there was a talk of Seattle or Las Vegas in taking the team, (in which NBA Commissoner Adam Silver dismissed it)if Milwaukee had done the deal to fail. BUT this first hurdle of the State, probably sent a signal to those cities that Milwaukee actually got something done. BUT this is a first hurdle. Now if the second, third or a fourth deal is done offically, the start of the construction could start in the fall, between October and November.

So yes, Bucks fans. The deer is staying thus far.


Yes. I know. It’s the day after the Midterm Elections and yes majority of the Red Squad from hades got not only the House and the Senate, but it’s all about one thing: getting at Obama. All of this was just a ploy of them to get back at all those executive decisions that the President made in all. And the Republicans themselves had to say all that jazz to say no to the nation’s first black president from the very start. And partially, those in the Democratic Party who ran in the midterms, and went away from Obama for support, you are NOT real Democrats! That’s what you get. Oh, Republicans don’t make a fan of yours! And to those that didn’t vote, oh I got some words for you!

Dear Democrats, and those who didn’t vote:

It’s me Stephen, a black blogger from Milwaukee. You know the city.

First for the Democrats: are you happy now? Are you really happy now? You shouldn’t be. After that drumming from the elephants that most are despised got you again in a Election Midterm! What is up with you?!!! I’m a Democratic fan in all, but this loss is just another example of you losing in elections like this. But also I have to ask this question: Why did some of you or many of you had to run in the midterms and also ran away from the support of the President of the United States? Some of you probably admit that not liking Obama is one thing, but running away from his support in favoring some of you who ran like cowards per say, got you out of a job to those that most in America don’t like. The Republican Party. I had to be like, why would the blue squad who all for the ACA, the jobs, additional Civil Rights, and many others that Obama proposed and got done so far, many of you had to run scared! And you call yourselves “DEMOCRATS?” Really?!!! Mary Burke didnt run away, but yes she lost. More on that later. Just today, I got a mailing from the Obama’s group, Organizing for Action. And in the envelope, it was a bumper sticker that read this:

Change Only Happens When You Organize

I looked at that today, and I had to wonder if any Democrat that lost ever had to read that message? Or in this case to remind those the only way you aren’t going to get anything done if you don’t organize. For those Democrats that lost big and even in Obama’s Illinois State, ask yourself that question in the mirror, did you really made that decision of running and not getting the POTUS Support? Really?! Now let me comment of the voting factor. If you voted up yesterday, or ahead of time like I did, you can have the hand patted on the back. But for those who didn’t feel that voting wasn’t all that important or it’s just a waste of time out of you going to the club getting your boogie on, or your hair done, or worrying about playing your video games or still being “socially active” on Social Media and not doing a darn thing of getting your communities better in all, you are at fault! I mean I could blame the blue squad and Wisconsin Democratic Leader Mike Tate for not stepping up in all, but for the voters (or those so-called non voters) that refuse to cast a ballot, don’t you realized that there were those who fought and died for your right to vote?

Take a look at Wisconsin. Yes. Scott Walker beat a woman. Mary Burke got beat by a guy who still has a proud moment of a High School Diploma, dropping out of Marquette University, whom probably wasn’t that likable at Marquette anyway. She also got beat by a guy who ran an campaign of getting 250,000 jobs but only came up with 133,000 plus jobs netted in the state. She also got beat by a guy who thought having a rail system was a boondoggle between Milwaukee and Madison, and also she got beat by a guy who would like to privatize schools, take money away from the large cities to the small towns and above all else, the next time if those want to go on unemployment or food stamps, make sure you got your urine samples ready! Make sure your benefits change is straight under this guy. That swift action of slash and burn 2.0 is coming. Plus also Mary Burke got beat by a guy that may have an idea in the next two years to get the chair the White House. If that were to happen: GOD HELP WISCONSIN! Why Wisconsin? Ask those in the 50% that think that Walker is a good guy in which many trust. To be honest, I don’t trust Walker since his days in Milwaukee as a County Executive cutting bus routes, raising bus fares, and cutting out the poor folks stuff that don’t have access to health, food banks or even getting to work.

Thank you non-voters for wasting your excuses of keeping Walker for the next four years. Most of us tried to warn you! But, nah, you had to be one of the 2/3 per say in the state or county that didn’t vote. This what happens. Now many of you are already complaining about all these law changes and these extreme demands out of Walker and also those who feel that the Republicans are holding safe zones by which they stand for. They’re not! And for those who are Independents that sided with Walker in all, no disrespect but what was you thinking? Now there are many of us who are disappointed in all the canvassing, campaigns, GOTV, and many others  including voting of the Democratic side that just failed. But for the next two years, I think the momentum and the engagement of this loss, should rebuild the next players to be, to make the Democratic Party (and yes this includes the Wisconsin Democratic Party) a valuable player in the game of Midterms, Governing, and yes events. But in between that, they need to change the culture! Do you get me Democrats? It’s time for you in the blue squad and the blue squad to be, you all need to change the culture for strong players. Reference the quote above.

Yes, for us in Wisconsin who felt disappointed that Mary Burke got beat, we know. But I think that partially the main source of her loss was the plagiarism thing for her jobs plan. That one thing got the Walker folks talking that jazz for their win. Just saying. All of that came close to the Election Day. Yes, Mary Burke (unlike Walker) has a college degree, educated and also her family made the Trek Bikes well known. Speaking of that, not to ask in all, why aren’t any Trek Bike factories or shops in the metro Milwaukee area? Um….Hello?! Just asking. And yes, this was the same Mary Burke who tapped into the black vote in Milwaukee. Plus appearing on WNOV more times than any of the Republican reps period. Oh, just to ask, how many times Scott Walker got on the black radio in Milwaukee during his tour of trying to get re-elected? Oh I forgot, ZERO! Now there might have been some black republican “surrogates” of the Wisconsin Republican Party might have chimed in on black radio or the black newspapers, but none of the appearance of Walker himself.

For all you Walker folks, yeah your boy got his third win. But if I were a real Walker supporter, in which I am not, and never will, I would hold him accountable of everything he does. No matter if it’s showing off his High School Diploma or getting those new bills done with Voter ID. Yes Walker folks, Scott is on watch. And even the detractors are closely looking of him and any other Republican known in this era.

Sincerely,

Stephen

P.S. – Next blog will focus on the mentality of non-voters plus racism. I kid you not. I will go deep.


Another Episode of the Three Way Dance. Where I take three different dance cards of some sorts of different areas of enjoyment or seriousness. For this, it’s all about the Ebola Virus, Raven-Symone’s comment of being colorless and a local comment of Wisconsin’s Governor Race between Scott Walker and Mary Burke. It’s time to go in!

First Take: I want to talk about this whole thing of Ebola. We’ve been watching the news and reading about it online about this deadly virus that killing many in Africa. For those who are effected by the virus either in Africa or America, prayers are sent. Now after reading more about the disease or virus that is a continued plague, I have to ask this, mainly in America of those who are “freaking out”, since Ebola is freaking us out like crazy to get to the doctors, why are we not freaking out when some of us we know gets Cancer of any kind, HIV, STD, AIDS, and I dare say Diabetes?! Where is the freaking out of that notion? And where is the freaking out of the notion of Flu Shots?!!  Now in the past in regarding flu shots, especially around the Fall Season, we’ve been told to “get a flu shot”. HERE IS MY QUESTION: And I’m speculating here and it’s not an opinionated piece. And if you’re a real doctor or nurse in the medical game I would like this to be answered in your knowledge: In regarding flu shots themselves, is it mandatory to get one, or is it optional? Let’s look at the word “mandatory” in meaning that it must be done, usually by law. I haven’t read any laws or restrictions that guarantees of getting a flu shot. Never read one. Again, if you are in the medical game, point me in a direction or a site, or a reference that backs this up. We know it’s mandatory to get checked every year, and it’s mandatory to get our teeth checked every six months! But where is the mandatory written for flu shots?! As far as optional is concerned, it’s basically by choice. Either you get it or you don’t. There are some folks that I know that don’t get flu shots and they stay away from folks who have deadly flus that pop up like a pimple on prom night. Just want to know. Plain and simple.

As far as Ebola again, look Americans. We know it’s here. And yes we had doctors that went to Africa to help fight the cure and came back affected with the virus. And we read about the NBC Cameraman that died in lieu of the virus took place. And also there is an individual that is clinging on to life right now in Texas, that is being watched constantly due to the virus. Whom is now just recently died.  Mainly it’s coming from the air, and we need to be prepared for the next outcome. So don’t’ act like it’s a modern day of the red plague!

Second Take: Raven-Symone.

I know the anti-Negropeans folks are out in full force. Oh, you didn’t know? I know that many in the African-American Community aren’t taking Raven-Symone seriously about her comment on Oprah’s Where are they now? show.

That was the clip was setting off the firestorm. Matter of fact, I’ve heard some black folks say this most of the time, in terms of rejecting their black side and try to get to that Human side per say. But how in the living you know what are you going to get to that human side without acknowledging your side  of being black? I kind of calling that shaming. Really I do. I’m going there. I heard these song lyrics on stat like: “Black is beautiful” and “Say it Loud, I’m black and I’m proud!” I know I’m not the only one heard those lyrics. In a church sermon one day, I heard my pastor talking about those who are acting as “house negros” that do alot more sucking up than those who don’t. Even some black Christians too. Believe me I know. Me, as a black man, African-American call it what you want, I do interact with different folks, but I don’t EVER FORGET what got me to the dance in the first place! What that means is I don’t hide, nor turn down my black side. Yes, we all are supposed to be on that “Human Race thing”, but don’t forget what got you in the human race in the first place of your origin of ethnicity. I’m just saying. For Raven, yeah she may have had her say, and she’s a bright young woman, who once lighten the room as Olivia on the Cosby Show, and “That’s So Raven”. I get it. But I don’t think she realized that there are those whom are young fans of her’s of African Decent, have probably asked the question based on her commentary. So, is it was feeling ashamed or just non acknowledgement?

And plus why do at times that black folks (as least some) don’t want to acknowledge to be black or had to cringe when to talk about the ethnicity when they were born with? Zoe Salanda commented this years ago about her cringing when talking about her ethnicity. WHAT?!!!! This is the same actress who wants to play Nina Simone in a movie, and previously played Columbiana, a younger Lt. Uhura, and many other roles. But this “in cringing being black” must be real silly! I think that it’s time that yes to explore the humanity side, BUT NEVER EVER FORGET: what got you in the humanity side first: Black folks who feel this way, you gonna learn today! This goes for my Gen-X folks, the Gen Y’s and Millennial folks: you’re in this too! No hiding. No cringing! Stop being ashamed!

Third Take: A Bump in the Wisconsin’s preliminary polls for Governor. Plus also a mixed bag. 

Well, it seems that the Mary Burke – Scott Walker race is setting up. Preliminary wise. According to the preliminary polls previously, (via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) Walker lead Burke in a 49% – 46% lead among likely voters. For the preliminary polls in August during we were all summered out, Walker lead Burke 47% – 41% among registered voters, while at the same time, Burke herself taken the lead with a 48% – 46% among likely voters at the time.

After the so-called “plagerismgate” of Mary Burke’s Jobs Plan, the Walker folks took a 5% addition over the Burke camp. Really?! All because of the sampling of Job ideas from other Democrats?

Now we’ve all seen the first debate between Walker and Burke. And by the way, the second debate will be in Milwaukee. The very same Milwaukee that Scott Walker didn’t mention in his State of the State Speech. The same Milwaukee that Walker doesn’t particularly like that much. Yeah I said it! During the debate, Walker got stumped. Really he got stumped by a woman! In that first debate, Walker dodged all bullets pertaining to the now blocked-Voter ID option for November 4th, and mostly as we all know: the amount of jobs he wanted of 250,000. If you are a Walker fan, I’ve told you once, and I’ve told you again, he will not get that far and according to the latest numbers: it’s about 130,000 jobs already pumped into the state. And Walker is near the end of  his first term. So where’s the 250,000 jobs again?! NO WHERE! And plus, did I mention that Talgo is gone from the state? And the results of that, you guessed it.

Now we also know that Mary Burke won the first debate. That’s good. BUT Mary must get at Walker for a round 2. Don’t just settle for Round 1 and that’s it. Plus that debate got Mary’s 5 points back to get even with Walker.


Haven’t done this in a while, but I think it’s time for me to get back to do these “I told you so” things about the Badger State Politics per say.

Plagiarism in Politics, broken campaign promises. Oh and these “Militia-like threats” in Poll Watching.

More recently in the current Wisconsin Politics, there was an act of plagiarism that took place between Mary Burke, and the current Governor Scott Walker. The Walker folks recently spotted a flaw in the Burke campaign in relation to the jobs idea to get the state further up. They claimed on their part that Mary Burke stole ideas from other democrats in order to get her jobs plan idea to show. Mainly also since then, the person, Eric Schnurer whom Mary picked as her Campaign Consultant, was fired from his post in this recent story. And yes the Walker folks went all ham on Burke for this. Even sometime after that, Scott Walker himself commented his “I say I believe” speech that Mary Burke can’t be trusted.

Oh, wait a minute!

What most folks realized in the four years that Walker has been in office, he can’t be trusted either! Oh, let me count the ways why:

1) The ongoing phrase of putting 250,000 private sector jobs by his first term. – I told you Walker folks then and I’m tell you now. That was not going to happen. I told you.

2) Slashing folks off of BadgerCare, especially those who are really needy for some sort of healthcare. And still being anti-Obamacare.

3) Act 10 and Collective Bargaining. 

4) Education money was slashed.

5) Voter ID – don’t get me started on that.

And the most obvious: Refusing to accept over $800 million dollars to construct a High Speed Rail route which would have linked Milwaukee and Madison. And the jobs were almost in ink, but was thrown away by Walker, his administration, and also his so-called fans who thought it was a boondoggle that would not work. Really? And also that project, could have been a lifesaver for not only jobs, but also for getting to those hard to reach areas in getting to the jobs. I said this alot and I’m still saying it: Not everyone in Wisconsin doesn’t have a Driver’s License nor a vehicle!

Now that was just a sample that Walker himself can’t be trusted. Heck, I didn’t trust him when he was County Executive of Milwaukee County. Cutting bus routes, raising bus fares. And he came in after the late Tom Ament was existed due to the Pensions Scandal.

This political bull of the stories that rocked Plagiarism like a bad habit, I think and will assume that the Walker folks need to watch what they say because according to the Journal Sentinel, Walker kind of “stole some ideas” per say from other Republicans that got him competing. Oh, what are they you asked? Let’s see:

The “Wisconsin Comeback,” a phrase frequently used by Walker in his re-election campaign manager, comes from the “American comeback” campaign of the Republican Governors Association. The phrase is used by a few other GOP governors such as Sam Brownback,” who has talked in his re-election campaign about the “Kansas comeback.”

And here’s another:

In his successful 2010 race for governor, Walker used a theme of brown bag lunches to emphasize his frugality. That reprised a campaign theme of former U.S. Sen. George Voinovich, an Ohio Republican.

So what does that tell?

If done legally, sampling the words or phrases from other politicians, isn’t bad as long as it’s been done legally with reference. Back in school when we written papers or documents and used words quoted from famous writers of people, the teachers always told us to give the authors credit. Give them credit for sources. I mean that goes for anything. When I cite articles for my blog stories, I give the author or the publisher credit because that is the rule of law regardless.

How is this plagiarism talk is supposed to get people the jobs, health-care, education, infrastructure to better transportation, safety, and many other needy factors that mostly concerns the public? And those who are anti-Mary Burke with this plagiarism talk, is that the ONLY reason why you think Walker will win?

And just recently: there has been groups forming in Wisconsin. To clarify, this is what the “groups” have posted on Twitter:

SERIOUSLY?!!!!!

Oh so these dumb idiots want to show up with guns and to make a threat to those in the African-American/Democratic Areas to vote on November 4th? These fools are so dumb! Having those guns, eh? Is that going to solve the problem? Really? Oh, now you want to get guns? Now you want to get those scared? You want to play this game?!!!!

GET THE BLANK OUT OF HERE!

I want to address the Wisconsin Black folks here. If you saw this post on Twitter, or any other platform, these fools are just looking for a fight. That’s all they are. These fools (like many others) don’t want you vote. Don’t want you to show up with your registration, your ID’s or any other right to cast your ballot in which our ancestors fought and died for in order to express and choose our vote respectfully. If you go to the polls, GO! When you go to the polls – GO! Don’t let these so-called militias scare you out of your right to validate your picks to vote!

As far as these so-called militias: they are asking for trouble! That’s all they are. And plus, if the real Governor himself Scott Walker were a real man, or a real citizen of leadership in his “I mean what I say” speeches, then he should condemn these groups and tell them to stand down. PERIOD! All you Republicans fans in Wisconsin, you Tea baggers Badgers who like guns in all: do you condone this? Coming from those who say “I got a lot of black friends” in all. Your black friends might be in danger in the Democratic areas of the Milwaukee area that you are friends with! Also: where is Sheriff David Clarke in this? Uh-huh Where’s the Sheriff in this? Is he and the County Sheriff Department is aware of this?! They should. We know the MPD might be in effect, and don’t be surprised if AG Eric Holder would be in effect also.

This stunt that these militias are asking for will backfire. Everybody all over town will have their names, address, credit history, criminal records, Social Media Pages, and pics to be on the lookout. Even if you are fans of black Wisconsin media. We got the names!

So for the 25th time: I told you so!


Oh I got a four way stop for y’all! And I’m about to go in my way.

First: For all of us Milwaukeeans in the greater area that have a love/hate thing for Scott Walker.

We know the issues and concerns. But the biggest concern and the biggest story that hit was from the New Republic, and it concerned the well being of Scott Walker, and most of us living in Milwaukee with the whole case of segregation, the issues of polarized politics and many other concerns that would make those interested to freak out on Facebook. More on that later. If those in Milwaukee or any in the “WOW” counties of you know who you are, you might want review the New Republic’s article on the Toxic Racial Politics of Scott Walker. Oh, if you’re a Walker fan (which I’m NOT!) you will be moved with the truth that many here in Milwaukee or the Greater Milwaukee Area has been saying for years and even when Scott Walker was just trying to sneak up his way to the top of the Wisconsin food chain.  The author, Alec MacGillis highlighted many issues to the point that the Greater Milwaukee continues to face. The Voting areas, the ongoing talk of Mark Belling and Charlie Sykes and their disdain of blacks, Gwen Moore and other “majority white and less black issues” that the state continues to grasp. If those believe that it’s all smoke and mirrors or just a bunch of hooey, then you’re sadly mistaken. From the article about Walker’s beginnings, yes he was a PK, a preacher’s kid if you will. And yes he had those in his classrooms, hallways, and doorways that he talked smack against those weren’t on his side of the viewpoints.And he had the nerve to say to compare himself to Martin Luther King just because he’s a preacher’s son? Really Walker folks?  If Dr. King were alive, he would school Scott Walker in the radical and revolutionary game. And even Dr. King wouldn’t like the things Walker did or currently doing to the state right now anyway. Also in the article that had some or most of the “conservative Wisconsin regime” reacting like crazy, remember those racist emails that many downloaded from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel? Well from the excerpt it went like this: But what was most striking was the casual racism of many of the conversations. One anonymous e-mail, forwarded by Walker’s then–chief of staff, went like this:

“THE NIGHTMARE … ‘I can handle being a black, disabled, one armed, drug-addicted Jewish homosexual … but please, oh dear God, don’t make me a Democrat.’ ”

Another compares welfare recipients to dogs:

They are “mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who the r [sic] Daddys [sic] are.”This message was forwarded around by Walker’s then–deputy chief of staff, who remarked that it was “hilarious” and “so true.”

Last year, Walker also fired two aides after reporters exposed offensive comments they had made on social media. His campaign’s deputy finance director, for instance, sent out tweets that included references to “half-breeds” and one in which she vowed to “choke that illegal mex cleaning in the library.”

Does that refresh some reviews?

Many here in Southeast believe that the whole area is not segregated politically. Actually it is. Based on this demographic from 2012 as a reference from history. And yes, we’ve seen this in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Look at this from this angle:

A Guide to Scott Walker's Hyperpolarized Home Base

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This has been the talk thus far. Now normally you would think that, “oh this is a map, big deal”. But look at it closely. Look at the Metro Milwaukee Area in comparison with the Counties of Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington. Those are the “WOW” counties in which it’s Republican fueled. Those same counties by the majority have been filling up Scott Walker’s pockets with all the propaganda per say with the cuts to medics, educational aspects and I dare say the High Speed Rail  that would have rolled through Waukesha. Now for you in these counties, this is what you get.

Everyone in Wisconsin should darn well know about this. And the legalities behind the fuel of those of like Charlie Sykes and Mark Belling. For me, I don’t listen to  their spin and bubbles because most of what they say don’t mean a thing to me in my viewpoints. None. They think they know the black community, but they really don’t know squat in the black community. When was the last time Charlie Sykes or Mark Belling ever visited North Division High School in person full of black students? Nope! Never seen it.

Now since the ongoing case of the John Doe situation is currently in progress, it’s not closed or resolved like Walker wants it to be. It’s still open and it still being under view. And this is not going away. If he were to be beaten by Mary Burke in November, I would laugh. Speaking of Mary Burke, she’s been in the black news in Milwaukee lately for her campaign trail. And she’s been to black talk radio more than Walker, plus recently went to Juneteenth Day to make an appearance. Mary Burke is tapping into the black vote. In which that Walker is not.

The Second Stop on the list: Iraq.

We know about this country do we, Americans? The last time we went into this was when George W. Bush was ruining the country into ground on a freaking credit card. I want to say this and I’ll say it here: America has no business in Iraq’s backyard. In terms of the war over there. Now recently the President has sent about 300 Military Advisers over to the U.S. Embassy to provide support. But none of them are not going to be involved in the ongoing war between the Sunnis and Shiites. Or the ISIS factor. Frankly, yes it was a tight spot for the president to be in, but Obama knows that he does not want to be a repeat of what happened with Bush’s controls. Many are now just questioning about whether do I send my son or daughter to Iraq this time. Um, didn’t we asked that question like over 10 years ago when the U.S. should have focused more on Afghanistan/Pakistan in getting Bin Laden than Saddam Hussein? And the risk of losing more than 4,000 plus of our American Troops to do that? If you are a infinite follower of George W. Bush and support that, shameful. That even got the folks like Dick Cheney and Rand Paul talking. Oh we’ve seen the debate right?

After that commentary I thought I would never say this, one of the GOP’s of Rand Paul had the balls to tell Dick Cheney that he, George W. Bush, Condi Rice, and many others in the Bush 43 Administration were wrong about going into Iraq. With all the crap that the GOP is bleeding out to the American and to President Obama, this statement about Rand Paul makes sense of not invading a country that should have remained untapped in begin with.  Don’t get me on the GOP Train of favoritism. Oh no. At least this guy out of Kentucky is admitting the fact, Cheney was wrong. My question is, why can’t the other GOP folks admit the truth about the war in Iraq and ADMIT the fault of it on the part of the United States invading it? That is what I want to know! And again, I’m not a fan nor a supporter of the GOP. And that goes double for not being a fan of the so-called Tea Party. Now I know that many are going to say, “Bush is not in charge anymore. Why are folks and you talking about him after about 5 years he’s been out of office?” Well, it’s the truth! Everyone in the GOP Camp keeps talking about that President Obama should be impeached in all. I have to ask: IMPEACHED FOR WHAT?!! Just because he’s black? The main reason for that is because of ignorance and racism against this man since the day he sat foot in office after beating Sen. John McCain and the escalation of hate after Mitt Romney got whooped in 2012.

Even Senator Harry Reid agrees. In terms of the proverbial, “thanks but no thanks” mentality. The Bush 43 regime was blunderous at best, but it’s up to the Obama Crew to fix the mess.

 

Third stop: Wisconsin’s Gay Marriage is temporarily “halted.”

Here in the Badger State, folks of the LGBT were lined up outside of courthouses and statehouses to get married legally after the ban was lifted. And plus the ban ended a 8 year streak being unconstitutional. It was getting good for awhile, BUT……….Wisconsin’s AG JB Van Hollen had to whine like a wuss yet again to the federal judge of his appeal in the then-definition of the marriage law between a man and a woman. So there has been a temporary stop in which the idea is paused due to the resolution from 2006. Oh, even Walker is not saying anything, but he’s backing the word and resolution based on it. But SURPRISINGLY: RoJo or Senator Ron Johnson commented in his words, that if the voters wanted the Marriage Equality thing, he would not touch it, but leave it to the voters to decide. Ok, here’s the actual quote from the Journal Sentinel:

I’m a pretty traditional guy,” Johnson said. “I’m almost 60 years old. I think marriage is between a man and a woman. But again if the voters decide that they want gay marriage, I’m not going to oppose it.

I know that many are saying “that’s what he was put in office for! I see why we took out Feingold for him.” Really Wisconsin? Don’t fool yourself. Let me remind those who may have forgotten. Remember the Patriot Act after 9/11 when many in the senate and house voted up for the idea for the government to tap our phones in all to screen the terrorism acts? Many have voted up for it, BUT……………..Russ Feingold didn’t. Because he knew that would be a problem, and you “so-called Wisconsinites” voted him out for RoJo! Yep. He tried to tell you, but nope that Tea Party Mentality was just that: dumb. Now imagine if Russ Feingold were to back Marriage Equality now even more in a sense of passion per say, then this wouldn’t be a factor. Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see if the official resolution of this matter does indeed pass for those who want the idea of Marriage Equality to continue. I said before and I’ll say it again. I don’t care. If the folks of the LGBT want to marry equally on their thing without all this harm to world domination, then hey. I’ll bet that the haters of it probably are going to be well in doubt of not getting that extra cash in the state. And speaking of that, if the state houses were to have that continually, there better be more jobs popping up, and also more notaries. And yes, proof of marriage via photography.

And finally on the stop: This is a mystery but I’ll dive in on the “private way of  the All Aboard Wisconsin Rail Idea.

Here is the thing that most of us Wisconsin folks probably don’t know. The talk of rail is still here. And we all know about the situation regarding Talgo, and the debauchery of the folks thought it was a boondoggle and wouldn’t ride it. But what most didn’t realize in the eyes of those voters that was a set up of additional segregation. Now for those who wanting to know where I’m getting this from, pay attention to Milwaukee Black Talk Radio, like WNOV. The commentary that is on there will not be heard on the dial of Mark Belling, Vicki McKenna, or Charlie Sykes. But Sherwin Hughes will talk about it. And many others who call in or have special guests will chime in and the guests who chime in on it know the deep reasoning behind the segregation. No matter if it’s activist, senators, congress representatives, journalists, police officers and veterans all of African decent. That’s just something to think about.

Just recently, on Facebook and many others like Madison’s Newspapers, I’ve been reading about an idea of resurrecting passenger rail. Oh, you didn’t know? From their webpage , there was a proposal talk about having a passenger service from Madison to Chicago and the idea of using rails already in use for that project. However just to be clear this is just talk of ideas. When would it be available? That remains to be seen.  From the excerpts of the article, it states:

Goyke and Mike McCoy, president of All Aboard Wisconsin, said details of the operation — including route, costs and potential ridership — have not been formulated.

Donna Brown-Martin, who oversees railroads and harbors for the state Department of Transportation, said she has not been contacted by anyone involved with plans for passenger rail service from Madison to Chicago.

Any plan to use a state-owned rail line would need to be approved by the state and the railroad that leases the line from the state.

The state of Wisconsin owns a rail line operated by Wisconsin & Southern Railroad that runs through McFarland, Stoughton, Edgerton, Janesville, Walworth and to the southeast to the Illinois border.

Wisconsin is served by two passenger Amtrak routes, neither of which includes a stop in Madison. The Hiawatha train runs between Chicago and Milwaukee, while the Empire Builder is a long-distance train operating one round trip a day between Chicago, Seattle and Portland, Oregon.

Its closest stops to Madison are in Columbus, Portage and Wisconsin Dells.

Goyke’s invitation drew excitement from business and political leaders Wednesday.

Madison Ald. Scott Resnick, 8th District, said he plans to take part in the informational train trip and wants to know more about costs, what type of participation might be needed from the city, the exact route and plans for a Madison train station.

 

Seems like an idea, eh?

If this idea were to pursue as an alternative in order to get moving, then it seems a good thought. BUT ALSO, that good thought must include Milwaukee, more jobs, and also to connect to where the jobs are. Let me remind those who are various clueless of having cars: NOT EVERYONE IN WISCONSIN DOES NOT HAVE A CAR!!!! Be clear. WNOV talks about this all the time, and to those in Madison need to know this! It’s the truth. I see it and read about it here in the economic engine all the time. There was a point in my life I took buses to work and school in Milwaukee alot. But when it comes places where the buses can’t go, yes I learned to drive. But I’m speaking about those in the areas who couldn’t afford a car had to take buses to get to work. I’m speaking this also from experience. And if those in the background can see that, then it would be a challenge to accept, change, and pursue.

 

 


I’m sure many in the country has been asking: What’s up with Wisconsin now?

Not much as usual on this end, except the weather, and having a Milwaukee Bucks rookie making waves. Plus also gearing up for spring training with the Brewers.

BUT: as many of you know by now, Scott Walker is back in the news.

Remember those things that we’ve been hearing about him having those secret email messages about doing work on company county time, and the denials of it. Remember all of that? Remember about the smoking gun that came blazing out of the Walker camp of denial? Remember how us Wisconsinites had to beat our drums and protested like hell in the capital of Madison, even in the rotunda, even on tractors all trying to get this “Governor” out of the chair in Madison?

Well we tried. And partially failed. The reason why said partially failed because the main reason, Walker is still working. And the Republicans in the State still have the majority. And the Democrats on the other side are trying to get a plan to get of using the 2014 vote to get their power stroke back on track.

The extra red alert of all of this pain of emails: there were 27,000 plus email messages that was taking place when Walker was gunning for the chair. According to the rules of government and I’ve heard this before: that was going against the rules. Not using political or acknowledging political stances while working on county time. Those of us had or currently have those working in government know all that to well. Apparently, Tom Nardelli, and Kelly Reindfleich should know that. Partially, if Kelly wasn’t that well, “dumb” of what she did, then probably she would have not done that. Does this make sense?

Well now the governor has given his commentary and feels that its all behind him. It’s doesn’t mean nothing. In the eyes of the Wisconsin Democrats, One Wisconsin Now and many others, this was something that was brewing for a while, but those didn’t want to hear it. Well its time to confess! Again were in midterm election mode. And again if Walker goes out of Wisconsin with this email trail behind following him in which he cannot escape, THEN GUESS WHAT? There is no escape. That would adding embarrassment onto the citizens and the state! This is coming from a guy who promised to campaign on a imaginary goal of getting 250,000 jobs by his first term. The same guy who threw away 800 million dollars for high speed rail that would connect Milwaukee and Madison and additionally with other cities and towns for jobs. But did that happen? No! And a hidden thing in all this? More segregation! Don’t lie Wisconsin! And additionally of slashing those off of Badgercare, and Act 10 concerning Collective Bargaining. Plus slashing education. I’ll bet Mayor Tom Barrett had to be looking at those emails and be like, “I had to lose to this man in all of this?”

When I was a teen at Milwaukee’s John Marshall High School, in the Band mind you, we used to go down to Northwestern University for their annual band day shows. This was in the 90’s by the way. We had met with some band students from Illinois, and they were asking us where were from and we said Wisconsin. Their comment: “Oh that’s the Dahmer State!” They kept saying that over and over again. Plus also Jeffery Dahmer was killing and consuming young boys at the time as a serial killer. Well now, Wisconsin can be known as the Worst Walker state. And his work of “damaging the Badger State” thus far, proves it.
