with David Blaska

Is Paul Soglin that stupid?

(page 2 of 2)

Highlighted passages:

“Before calling 911, check to see if person lying on the grass is dead.” (Online headline at If they’re not, call Madame Brenda.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell to a patient crying for him to stop the procedure: “Stop being a baby.” As James Taranto elucidated, “You know what we do to babies around here.”

All hail Charles Ramsey, who freed the three abducted girls in Cleveland. “Bro, I knew something was wrong when a pretty little white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway!” (Watch the video.) Now he’s saying give the abductees the reward money; he already gets a paycheck. Stand-up guy!

In Mayor Soglin introducing a resolution to show the campaign contributions and lobbying activities of companies seeking a contract with the city, he goes down a strange path that I will point out by adding some new words to an old speech that Abraham Lincoln gave.
….what will convince them? This, and this only: cease to call progressive liberalism wrong, and join them in calling it right. And this must be done thoroughly - done in acts as well as in words. Silence will not be tolerated - we must place ourselves avowedly with them. Laws must be enacted and enforced, suppressing all declarations that liberal progressivism is wrong, whether made in politics, in presses, in pulpits, or in private. We must join progressives by silencing those who disagree with them. We must pull down our State and federal constitutions and end all references to that evil document, the Declaration of Independence. The whole atmosphere must be disinfected from all taint of opposition to liberal progressivism, before they will cease to believe that all their troubles proceed from us.

And they wonder why many companies don't do business in Madison, little wonder.

Will Havana Paul sometime soon be releasing the names of all who currently serve on the Madison Politburo? I think we would all like to know who is currently working on our five year plans and on Madison's Great Leap Forward.

Gee Dave, even the normal liberal commenters at the Crackpot Times are staying clear of this one.

Yes Soglin is that stupid, yes he is. He's an anti-business policy pusher thats for sure.

If Soglin wants to black list every contractor that wont donate to Barack, Communist Baldwin or the goofy Greens...well who the hell is he going to get to do the work?

Anyone left off that list is raging liberal and, well, Liberals DONT work!

What? Still with the unhealthy obsession over the Koch Brothers? Hey Soglin - the Koch brothers want to buy the LA Times or other Tribune newspapers. How does THAT sit with you??

Okay Dave, maybe I am stupid but I know Soglin worked at Epic for a number of years and Epic is not located in Madison, but Verona. So can you explain how she is buying him? On the other hand, it is obvious how ABC Supply bought Walker (which was on tape) to get rid of unions, or how American For Prosperity (founded by one of the Koch Brothers) ran a 10 day bus tour, Stand for Walker. Or WMC supporting Walker and then the budget suddenly goes towards fixing roads.

I absolutely howled at "Graeme Zielinski berserk". Even funnier than Democrats claiming nothin' wrong with 12 rewrites of Benghazi memo.
While it isn't surprising Soglin thinks like this, it is remarkable that he would state if publicly.
Didn't he realize people from the right are gonna' jump on this?
Is he that stupid or does he merely feel that insulated?

There is no "maybe" about it, Anonymous. Paul ran an outfit dedicated to stripping members away from WMC. It was bankrolled by Judith Faulkner. Does Epic's location in Verona create some kind of force field that would negate the previous sentence, Logan? Otherwise, what is its relevance?

Libertarians state they want transparency, but change their tune when it comes from a democrat. I support the "view" behind Libertarianism, less government involvement, more freedom, but you and many other libertarian politicians, have shown that is just a smoke screen into what is best for me and screw everyone else.

1) Epic is not located in Madison, therefore will not financially gain with exposure of members of the WMC.

2)When ALEC was exposed, members like COKE, Kraft, John Deer, GM, Walgreens all left – looks like a good plan

3) You said unions bought the school board elections, yet you have no problem when WMC actually does buy elections.

4)Soglin uses the term plural clients, and still collecting funds so you can still donate and have your name included.

5)Libertarians state they want less government, yet cry foul when it affects them personally or their “views”.

6) As far as calling anyone who doesn't agree with you Logan, Paranoid Personality Disorder can be treated with treatment and medications therefore even you can be helped.

7)I respect your view on pro life, yet you don’t respect others view on allowing a woman to have the choice based on her own situation. I understand only having one child later in life, to you this child was a blessing. Care net uses tactics like writing Hi Mommy on an ultra sound, or describing in vivid detail abortion practices. Doctors don’t do this inregards to surgeries, even when a patient asks for more information. Care Net advertises as if they are an abortion clinic yet they use the bait and switch techniques. Maybe any man who “looses” sperms without planned sex should be arrested for “child abuse” of a sperm.

Almost two weeks ago it came out that DOJ found Wisconsin Vouchers discriminating, yet those screaming about the race card, or "it's all about the kids", Kaleem Caire, Derrick Connor, David Blaska, Scott Walker, sit quiet while they wait until their puppetmaster "looks into it". Still going to say Blaska that Madison Prep won't discriminate? When is your next libertarian meeting of the minds so you come back with the same stand?

DPI came out a week ago stating that laws are going to have to change, and media over a week ago shared this discrimination. David Blaska, pro voucher stands quiet.
