Former Milwaukee County Supervisor

Deanna Alexander announced that she wasn’t running for re-election to the Milwaukee County Board via Facebook and a press release.  It has been awhile since I laughed this hard.  Her reasoning is complete and utter bullshit.  At no time have I or anyone I know involved in politics ever heard her say that she “promised” self-imposed term limits.  What is funny is that she can’t even get her story straight.

First, she states that she would serve no more than eight consecutive years.  Then she changed her story saying she would serve no more than three terms.  Here is what is hilarious about these two statements.  She says her “promise” came when she first ran in 2012.  At that time three terms would have meant twelve years; she has served eight.  State law changed in 2013 reducing the length of supervisor’s terms from four years to two years.  Deanna didn’t know this was going to occur when she made this “promise” and any reasonable person wouldn’t fault her if she wanted to run again.

The reality is that she isn’t running again because she knows she would lose.  The reason is simple.  Not only did she file a bogus lawsuit against me, but she also sued former Governor Walker 5 days before his election.  I know for a fact that there are many Republicans who are still very upset about her stunt.  If you read the lawsuit you would understand why these prominent Republicans want nothing to do with her.  So, her rationale about some “promise” being the reason for not running is an outright lie.

Lastly, she didn’t run as a conservative.  She ran and looked for support wherever she could get it.  I met her at a Republican Reagan Day Dinner in February of 2012.  She introduced herself as independent and told me that she recently had been to a Democratic Party function looking for support.  When I think about Deanna all I think about is tofu.  You see, tofu has little to no taste itself but when combined with something else it takes on that flavor.  This is who Deanna truly is.  She morphed into whatever suited her best.  She is a “conservative” without conviction and finally that fact caught up to her.

Today’s highly interesting read (11/20/19): Dealing with Anti-Hunters

The annual deer hunting season in Wisconsin begins Saturday. I’m not a hunter but a strong supporter for lots of reasons.

Here’s a previous post worth repeating.

Today’s read is from one of my all-time favorite columnists. Doug Giles is also a minister and avid hunter.

“…if you believe that hunting and providing for yourself and others high protein, low fat, yumminess; and you’re ok with being hands on via hunting with your conservation of land and animals, then according to the Daily Mail you’re a “poaching, murderous mook who’s culpable for the mass eradication of lions and elephants all because you sport a small male appendage,” or something to that effect.

Sadly, this is our reality here in the United States of Whiners.

So … how do we, the hunters, traverse this tricky milieu of political correctness that has been foisted upon us who hunt this 3rd rock from the sun?

Herewith are My 10 Commandments for Dealing With Anti-Hunting, Doe-Eyed, Tree-Humpers.

Today’s highly interesting read (11/19/19): ‘Trump Is …’ — News Channel Descriptions Since 2015

No photo description available.

There should be no doubt that media bias is real, and it’s running rampant. Today’s read is incredibly revealing from Real Clear Politics, based on rather solid, astounding evidence. Let’s tee this up.

As Democratic impeachment fervor continues to grow on Capitol Hill, the media’s descriptions of Donald Trump have become ever more colorful… How have the media’s descriptions of the president evolved since he first rode down that Trump Tower escalator four-plus years ago?

The descriptions show a news media that was at first dismissive of Donald Trump, rapidly hardened its rhetoric as he raced towards the nomination, then has become ever more negative as his presidency has worn on.

Thorough material here, an utter indictment of anything but objective journalism.
