On Gov. Walker flirting with presidential bid
TheJoker Mar 25, 2013 at 8:16 p.m.He has my vote! All of us in Wisconsin should be proud of him. He has done great things for our state.
Keep drinking that kool aid Joker. Wisconsin ranks 44th in job growth; yes he has made a lot of people money, just none in the middle class.
On Still standing by: Little happening to restart GM plant
The unfortunate reality is that while this is a really big thing for Janesville, the decision is being controlled at the national level by GM and its union,” said Vic Grassman, Janesville’s economic development director.
Tell me Vic how does the union control whether GM Janesville reopens? I would like to know the answer to that one. I am sure if the union had a say, it would be open tomorrow.
On Ruling leads to call for right to work in Wis.
Hey Whz_bng....that's exactly what I want to see happen in a union factory. Go in and negotiate your wages and benefits; by the time they are done with you, you will probably have to write the company a check they will screw over you so badly.
On National index adds Janesville to improving markets list
Hey Nemesis you want to explain how that 3.8% tax on the sale of a house works. You couldn't be more wrong on your statement. The 3.8% tax is on the amount over and above the allowed profit on a house. If you are married and sell a house you can make up to $500,000 before you owe anything. The profit over and above the $500,000 is taxed at not only ordinary income but a special 3.8% healthcare tax. If you make less than the 500k you owe nothing. All this is the same if you are single other than the profit threshold in $250k.Even then you owe nothing if you make less than $250k per year. You should quit listening to Fox News so much.

On Not looking for the union label
".....That's how I felt when I was a teacher and a forced member of a union, and how I still feel as the wife of a teacher union member. And a lot of others feel the same way, too."
I bet Esther, you didn't have a problem taking those raises and benefits though! You don't want to join the union, fine; negotiate your own damn contract!
On Need for donations echoes with nonprofit
Prime example of why you sometimes "need" the government. Faith based organizations can't always survive to help the needy expecially when those who used to give are now the needy.
On Plans to drug test welfare recipients get momentum
Testing for welfare benefits has worked really well here in florida. We have spent $170 million and so far we have saved $60 thousand. Rick Scott's buddies in the drug testing labs have done even better. 98% of welfare recipients have passed the drug test. Let it go!
On United Alloy ditches conventions—and business booms
You pubs crack me up. $100,000 of taxpayer money for 32 jobs in Janesville is good but a nationwide offer of taxpayer money to employ thousands to repair infrastructure is bad. Hypocrisy at its finest!
