Waukesha Carnival – Super Bowl XLIII edition

by thoughtfulconservative

Let’s get right into this week’s Super carnival. As usual, these are my choices, although you are certainly free to put yours in the comments.

Let’s start with posts about what’s going on nationally. At Practically Speaking, Kyle Prast wonders if Republicans will say no to pork. The governors seem to have capitulated with a couple of exceptions.

Tom Gehl also gives us some plain talk on the “stimulus” package over at Brookfield Basics.

In a related story, the Asian Badger has some thoughts on that CITI bank jet.

Silent e speaks and points out a little hypocrisy at the White House.

Cindy Kilkenny had a proposal on “Drill Here, Drill Now” at Fairly Conservative. The expected result?

Tax revenue and a move towards energy independence from one simple decision.

Sounds simple to me. Cindy also thought that long term contracts such as the one Charlie Sykes recently signed should put an end to talk about the Fairness Doctrine. I disagree, but linked because of the discussion generated.

Dad29 gives us a snapshot of an entitlements catastrophe in the wings. And he kicks off the posts on Wisconsin section by helping Judge Koschnick in adding to the list of Abrahamson “activist” decisions.

Sen. Mary Lazich says the taxpayers deserve answers on Wisconsin Shares. You can read her post at Conservatively Speaking.

Rose Fernandez is getting serious about blogging and posts a few questions and answers. She’s blogging at her campaign web site Change DPI.

Over at Wigderson Library & Pub, James Wigderson looks at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction race and Dr. Van Mobley’s stands of some issues like increasing the sales tax (to offset a cut in property tax).

The best post on Gov. Doyle’s State of the State speech can be found at Spring City Chronicle, where our good friend Huckleberry Dumbell uses the technology of the “internets” and Google Translator to sort it out.

Randy Melchert, whom I’m adding to the blog roll soon, has a report on a pro-life demonstration in Madison and has video.

Within Waukesha County, Jeff at Five Points Blog informs us of a new direction for the blog and the addition of a co-blogger. Since it is now devoted to eating, drinking and recreation in Waukesha, if you would like to blog there, get in touch with him.

Alexander muses over at A Little Off Main about traffic control at five points during special events. While they’re at it, Alexander would like another “five points” intersection looked at.

Mayor Larry Nelson has published another in his series of Mayor’s Memos. Sure looks busy. Maybe he’s trying to convince us he’s worth all that money we’re paying him.

Linda Richter at Inside New Berlin lets us know about some voter forums taking place for various New Berlin offices.

Bryon Houlgrave has several new pictures posted but I liked this one best because it reminds me there are only 11 days until pitchers and catchers report.

James Rowen at The Political Environment congratulates Waukesha for cutting water consumption, but raises a question on the diversion sought.

Darryl Enriquez posted about a fight at the men’s homeless shelter downtown which started quite a discussion in the comments at Waukesha FYI.

The anonymous blogger at Ocono.com seems to object to Huckleberry’s characterization of their fair community in a recent post.

Scott Feldstein shares his frustrations with video news, especially on the CNN.com site.

That’s the end of this week’s super carnival. As always you can leave a comment suggesting a post for this week or next week’s carnival. Or you can e-mail them to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Waukesha Carnival 11/16/2008

by thoughtfulconservative

Let’s jump right in to this week’s posts.

Where to begin?

OK, general stuff first. Land Savers posts on what is called a farmer’s last crop, disappearing farm land. You have to get through some messed up code to get to the post.

Tim wrote a very moving post at The Other Side of My Mouth for Veterans Day.

silent e does the public a service by giving driving lessons at silent e speaks. Here’s lesson 2.

In case you didn’t know, concernedcitizen tells us at Skeptics Anonymous that Dish Network Subscribers Get Screwed.

Nationally, we have Huckleberry Dumbell starting off Thursday Morning Coffee Time with a nice little rant about the credit crisis at Spring City Chronicle.

Alexander at A Little Off Main comments on Laura Ingraham’s interview of Rep. Paul Ryan on O’Reilly.

The Asian Badger contends that the markets are not too impressed with Obama.

Scott Feldstein gives us his suggestions for the GOP.

Closer to home, Josh has a post with pics on the Christmas tree at Bayshore Mall at his place, Blog Waukesha.

Jeff at Five Points give his thoughts on downtown Waukesha developement and apartments.

Statewide, Sen. Mary Lazich (or aide Kevin Fischer) posts at Conservatively Speaking that TABOR survived another vote in Colorado. I guess some people (Hmmm, 55%) think it’s beneficial.

Dad29 informs us that Gov. Doyle hopes to take care of the $5 billion (with a “b”) “structural” (Don’t you love political speak?) deficit by telling agencies to flat line spending. He gives some suggestions for cuts.

Cindy Kilkenny notes it’s tough to be a girl in this business of political opinion making. You can read about it at Fairly Conservative.

James Wigderson writes at Wigderson Library & Pub that the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board disenfranchises everybody.

That concludes this forty second edition of the carnival. If you’d like to have your post or someone’s else’s post included, submit using our this handy form. Or you can simply e-mail me the link at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com. Past posts and future editions can be found here.
