On Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport tower could close
Dal- why are you calling this Republican short sightedness? The house has passed 2 bills that would deal with the sequestration. The Democratic controled Senate will not take up those bills. It is the President that started the sequester, and the Democratic Senate that is not dealing with it.
On Milton City Council asks for estimates on Shaw building renovation
Milton has always had the ability to spend every dime that it can wring from it's citizens. Where is the long range plan. Buy, spend, re-locate, spend again, re-build again. It seems more like keeping up with the big cities that are spending money they don't have. Way to go Milton!
On Zerban reacts to Ryan announcement
I am so glad you on the left keep calling Ryans budget radical! The Democratic party and the Obama administration have not even tried to pass a budget at all. And, as far as Medicare ending, you, the Democrats are doing nothing to keep it from ending due to running out of money. Radical change is what we need. Obama promised it, but has not delivered! We need solutions to Medicare and other problems. At least Paul Ryan has provided one solution. Obama has provided none!
On Unions’ recall race snub surprised Cullen
Liverpool. What makes you think that the unions "owning" a candadate makes them somehow better than your claim of out of state billionaires "owning" a candidate? In either case, the person, when elected does not represent the people. That is the problem with the whole idea of this recall. It is one small group of people (union supporters) that think they have the right to tell elected people what to do. If you think otherwise, you are not being honest.
On Janesville area residents join Wall Street rallies
Gandolf. You make some very good points but they are out of proper frame of reference to how the 50s and 60s differ from today. Projects you mention, NASA, Interstate system, ect. were job creators. I will not dispute that! But, and this is very important. They were paid for, not with borrowed money, but with current (at the time) budget spending. Not deficit spending. The current proposals are borrowing money, deficit spending. Much differing frame of reference.
On Local residents join Wall Street rallies
If the article is accurate in regard to what the local protest is supporting, they should remain a local protest. The need for our government to get beyond the partisianship and get to work is correct. But, to claim to support the Wall street bunch is dubious at best. They (the wall street protesters) are for all sorts of stupidity that has nothing to do with getting our government to work.
On Sheriff: Taser use on Wisconsin student justified
Many people who responded to this are way out of line. Being a past law enforcement officer, let me state a few points. Tazers are not in fact to be used in place of deadly (use of gun) force. There is an escalation of force guideline for most departments. Tazers have been proven to be used in place of other force (night stickes, PR-24, ect) more safely for the officer and the other person. The idea that an officer should always try to negotiate is just plain stupid. Use some common sense folks. This "student" was throwing over desks and clearly stating an intent on not cooperating. Should the officer tried to physically restrain this person? The tazer ended the problem for everyone safely.
On I want to see Barack Obama ANGRY today! Do YOU?
There are some times when one cannot compromise and truely gain the appropriate goal. This country (both parties) have spent money that we did not have, could not raise through appropriate taxes, yet could not seem to stop it. To compromise and raise the debt limit without actual reductions in spending will only ensure nothing really is going to change and we will approach bankruptcy. We must reduce real spending, period. If not now, when?
On Walker promises swift action on Wisconsin budget
It is time for the Wisconsin Democrats to get a new script. It is getting boring to hear the same lines everytime they are interviewed. "Give more to the haves' and take more from the have nots' " Boring rhetoric. The taxpayers of WI have grown tired of giving to the work nots, and do nothings, but spend more money on us. Finally the taxpayers and not the "takers" are being represented.
On Walker to sign photo ID requirement into law
There is nothing in this law the will keep any legal Wisconsin resident from voting. there is no one that does not have a proper photo ID. How can they. You cannot receive Social Security or Medicare/Medicaid without an ID. You cannot receive any form of public assistance with proper photo ID. You cannot legally drive with a proper license. Who is being kept from voting?
