Waukesha Carnival – No football Sunday edition

by thoughtfulconservative

OK, this is late. Google Reader decided to quit working last night. But this is edition 50, IIRC. But let’s not rest on our laurels.

Beginning with posts on national topics. silent e has a question at silent e speaks now that administrations have changed. I can answer it. No. We’ve got at least one more year.

Dad29 opines that Obama calling out Rush Limbaugh a rookie mistake. He’s right. He only increased Rush’s audience. James Rowen has the tack Obama should take.

At Wigderson Library & Pub, James Wigderson has some points to make about living and blogging in the Obama era. That’s what I’ll try to follow. Will I criticize? Yes. But I’ll try not to nit pick. I hope my readers will never find Obama Derangement Syndrome here.

MommaBlogger at Homemaker’s Guide to the Galaxy has some info on CPSIA. I hear libraries will feel the effects also.

Dan Diebert shares at The D Spot a picture that belies the enviro-consciousness of the president’s followers.

Kyle Prast links to a thought-provoking pro-life ad at Practically Speaking.

A little bit closer to home Concernedcitizen lets us know he’s still at Skeptics Anonymous. The usual suspects are at fault for his lack of posting. It happens.

Huckleberry Dumbell crowns his Bonehead of the Day, the Oconomowoc Common Council. You can read why at The Spring City Chronicle.

Dave posts about a lunch at Sprizzo’s at Five Points Blog.

Alexander at A Little off Main has a name for Republicans who are fine with the stimulus increase government spending and want their share–RINO.

Linda Richter at Inside New Berlin notes the return of Jefferson Davis and Ted Wysocki.

The Asian Badger gives some perspective on Flight 1549 and links to FL390 where the Airbus 320 pilot who blogs there gives even more perspective.

Finally, a couple of miscellaneous posts. First, Byron Houlgrave has a nice sports shot.

At Fairly Conservative, Cindy Kilkenny links to a couple of piece’s that would be worth a read by all of us. Unfortunately, the title played havoc with my internet filter as did the title of one of the articles.

And Scott Feldstein brings us home with some nice thoughts on reading to kids.

That’s it for this edition. If you have posts from last week you think should be here, note the link in the comments. Also if you see something for next week’s carnival, place a link in the comments here.

Waukesha Carnival, the 24 season premier edition

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to the January 11, 2009 edition, the forty-eighth. This is where I survey the Waukesha corner of the Cheddarsphere and bring what are, in my opinion, the best posts of the last week. Feel free to add yours in the comments.

Let’s get started.

Taking a look at some local items, over at Fairly Conservative, Cindy Kilkenny looks at the Elmbrook school slates. Be sure to check out the comments.

Alexander wonders at A little off Main if he’s in Madison and Vrakas is a RINO. I don’t go much for the RINO tag, but the post is worth a read.

Has Jeff made his last post at Five Points? If so, be sure to catch his update on downtown Waukesha.

Huckleberry Dumbell has some “lay observations” about the Waukesha housing market in this post at Spring City Chronicle.

You can read James Wigderson’s post about bias is all in the eye of Ricky on State at Wigderson Library & Pub.

Tom Gehl discusses The Denigration of Race in Milwaukee at Brookfield Basics.

In local sports, Tim Rock takes a look at the Trevor Hoffman deal with the Brewers at The Other Side of My Mouth.

Bryon Houlgrave is shooting Northstars. Wrestling pictures. You can find more of Bryon’s sports photos at SportsShooter.com.

Looking about posts dealing with more general issues, Kyle Prast has a post at Practically Speaking showing us that not only is the Homeschooling movement is growing, but so is “unschooling”.

Linda Richter has a post decrying guilt by association by both sides at Inside New Berlin.

Chris from Racine, blogging at silent E speaks has a couple of posts on a recent experience with customer service.

Then concerning taxes and spending, Sen. Mary Lazich (chief aide Kevin Fischer?) makes a correlation at Conservatively Speaking between the fastest-growing states and those with the lowest tax rates.

The Asian Badger thinks Obama may have a one good idea with nominating a “Chief Performance Officer” to monitor spending.

Dad29 has a couple of charts illustrating that our infrastructure spending is already huge.

That concludes this edition. You can submit posts you liked in the comments. If you read something in the coming week, you can either put them in the comments, e-mail them to me or use this handy form. Archives can be found here.

What will it be by the time he takes office?

by thoughtfulconservative

Shoebox @ No Runny Eggs documents the increase of jobs Obama’s stimulus bill is expected to “create.” It’s risen steadily from 2.5 million to 4.1 million.

He’s created 1.6 million jobs before even getting it passed.
