Politics in Wisconsin as they roll up to every level... and some other thoughts that may cross my mind are explored here from my lefty point of view. My values shape my opinions. You'll always find them in here. Let's have some fun exploring why Liberal values are American values!

What a Day/Night!!!

First it starts out with the most landmark decision on same sex marriage rights ever in the history of the United States.

As if that wouldn't be a great enough day, the Senate voted overwhelmingly to overrule the FCC's rule that would have expanded media's ability to consolidate even more than they have so far.

Then the House passed a new GI bill that would actually HELP GI's.

Finally, as if we needed ice cream with our cake, Congress defeated a $165.5 billion war funding bill. 141-146 with 132 REPUBLICAN congresspeople voting present (i.e. I don't want this job anymore...)!

Big thank you's to Mississippi for finally proving that if you refused to listen to the people of this country, they will eventually vote you out of office.

People spoke earlier this week in LA, MS and IL. Finally Congress is beginning to listen!

I love election year politics! It may be the only time really good things get done!!!

Thanks to all who did the right thing today and the people who worked to force them to... We ahve a lot more work to do, so roll up your sleeves!

It was a good day all around!
