by thoughtfulconservative

An announcement from THE Right Side of Wisconsin

THE Right Side of Wisconsin, recently ranked by BlogNetNews “the most influential blog in the State of Wisconsin” for two weeks running, announces that it is relaunching itself as THE Right Side of Wisconsin Blog Network. The flagship blog THE Right Side of Wisconsin already boasts such contributors as Ambassador Mark Green, Jean Hundertmark, Senator Glenn Grothman, Representative Kevin Petersen, National Columnist Camille Solberg, Conservative Critic Andy Haaf and others, and will now open its doors to any conservative in Wisconsin that wants to become a political blogger. In addition, THE Right Side of Wisconsin Blog Network will host a weekly internet radio program called “from THE Right Side of Wisconsin” which will discuss the best blog content from the previous week along with interviews from Wisconsin’s political news makers…

“Any conservative who want to become a political blogger.” Here’s your chance if you’ve been wanting to blog.

Waukesha Carnival 02/08/2009

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to this week’s edition. It’s gettin’ late and I have to work tomorrow, so let’s get to it.

First sad news, Darryl Enriquez at Waukesha FYI tells us about the Waukesha Freeman layoffs. One of those laid off was photographer and Waukesha blogger Byron Houlgrave, who shared the last picture he clicked for the Freeman.

Continuing in Waukesha city, Jeff reviews the fish fry at Michael’s Italian America Restaurant at Five Points Blog.

James Wigderson went to the Waukesha Common Council meeting and shares his thoughts with us at Wigderson Library & Pub.

Spiralling out a little, Linda Richter at Inside New Berlin finds the security cameras in schools unsettling and it’s not just the price tag.

At peterepublic, Pete Fanning drops by to remind us he’s still alive, just very, very very busy.

Kyle Prast at Practically Speaking reminds us that US Rep. Sensenbrenner and state Rep. Leah Vukmir will have several town halls. One is past, two are upcoming.

In posts about state news, Wisconsin Sen. Mary Lazich (chief aide Kevin Fischer?) points out at Conservatively Speaking that the Wisconsin Covenant program could be costly.

In a couple of miscellaneous posts, Curt Otto gives us the question to last week’s answer, or something like that. Any way it’s all over at Maple & Main.

Meanwhile, over at the Spring City Chronicle, Michael Phelps gets the Bonehead of the Week award. Pretty much a unanimous vote, I would say.

Then in posts on national issues, MommaBlogger takes time out to rant over that Florida case of the botched abortion at Homemakers Guide to the Galaxy.

Dan Deibert shows us how fast government can move when they want to, with pictures at The D Spot.

Alex has some thoughts about Republican votes and raises at A Little off Main.

At The Other Side of  My Mouth, Tim Rock has some thoughts on the Republican vote on the stimulus package.

Silent e tells us why Democrats are unpatriotic at silent e speaks.

Cindy Kilkenny has a two-parter over at Fairly Conservative on building our own stimulus package.

Dad29 points out that the American people seem to be understanding the ramifications of the stimulus package.

Whew, that’s it for another long one. As usual, if you have one you liked add the link in the comments below or e-mail me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com. Same for posts you’d like to nominate for next week’s carnival. It doesn’t have to be one of your own. Links to our archives and future editions can be found here.

Another suburb gets the MMT touch

The burgeoning Metro Milwaukee Today blog adds another “Sub-blog,” South Milwaukee Today, which will be under the guiding hand of Zach Wisniewski from Blogging Blue and a candidate for the South Milwaukee school board.

If you are from or have an interest in that area, here are a few blogs for you to check out, then.

A Waukesha Carnival 06/08/08

by thoughtfulconservative

Well, it’s been a couple of weeks and there may be a couple of more before I do another one, but let’s go ahead and pop a carnival in here.

An Inexact Science is back and calling all readers.

Nationally, The Asian Badger discusses Russia offering to help us build a gas pipeline.

Josh at Blog Waukesha goes political and expresses many of the conservative hesitations about McCain.

Dad29 educates us on the preamble to World War II and a prime topic the last couple of weeks — appeasement.

If you have the stomach to get through them Kyle Prast has posted the letters she received from Wisconsin’s Senators at Brookfield7 concerning the cap and trade bill.

silent e goes on a fine rant on gas.

Locally, Bryon Houlgrave posts some pics of Milwaukee.

Most folks who read this will know that David at Carrick Bend Thoughts tipped Mark Belling about Wiggy’s post on the local Dems misadventures, but what got me thinking this week was his post on politically correct language.

Dean Culver, on the other hand, finds it hard to listen to conservative talk radio anymore, because there’re trashing [my word, not his] John McCain.

The Daily Scoff notes how a UW Madison study promotes drinking and what might be a future finding, if we can dream of such.

Tom Gehl at Brookfield Basics brings one of the good guys into the spotlight.

Spring City Chronicle takes us on a photographic tour of the proposed ball park in Waukesha. More thoughts can be found here.

James Wigderson posts on the new superintendent of the Waukesha School District and the meeting to appoint him.

Cindy Kilkenny notes a problem with the Brookfield East plans.

As usual, if you have a favorite you can link in the comments or send the link to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com. If you have one for next week, you can submit using this submission form. Past posts can be found on here. I don’t know right now when the next edition will be.

It started so innocently

by thoughtfulconservative

Badger Blogger reported

While BadgerBlogger can not independently confirm this, sources close to the Milwaukee Brewers organization tell BadgerBlogger late this evening, in the midst of another horrid road trip, and on the heels of a sweep by the Boston Red Sox, that Brewers manager Ned Yost will be relieved of his duties during the team’s off day Monday, and replaced on an “interim” basis by team bench coach Ted Simmons.

But swelled all out of proportion after Tom Haudricourt, a serious journalist, who probably, like Cuprisin and Kane, only blogs because his masters at the Journal Sentinel (Journal Communications?) make him, threw “the info out there for your consumption” along with disparaging remarks about bloggers on the Brewers blog that he and Anthony Witrado post to on JSOnline. He was obviously told about the post and not wanting to be scooped by these pesky bloggers, made his own post with his own speculations

Then the fit hit the shan, if you know what I mean. and the dust up gets commented on by Michael “I’m no baseball expert” Mathias and James Wigderson, who even drags Mickey Kaus into it.

Posts multiply upon post (and I admit I’m adding to it) charges and counter charges, source added to source, interviews on radio shows (h/t to Wiggy), speculation, innuendo, with all kinds of supposedly famous people commenting.

OK, I exaggerate. Somewhat.

I’ve been known to do so on occasion.

But it’s great drama.

Waukesha Carnival time!

by thoughtfulconservative

After missing last week due to another trek to north central Ohio (where we got but a dusting from the storm that left 10+” here), we have another rather large edition of the carnival. We better jump right into it.

David B. Bohl starts us off with How to Maintain Professional Boundaries posted at Slow Down Fast Today!

Kyle Prast from Practically Speaking posts some statistics crimes at the Brookfield High Schools.

Dad29, who is in favor of the Elmbrook referendum, wonders if the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board will be speech cops.

Cindy Kilkenny is against the Elmbrook school district referendum.

Linda Richter wants us to hold Alderman Ken Harenda accountable.

The New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government shares their April 1 Ballot recommendations.

Curt Otto has some pictures of Harley Fest.

Spring City Chronicle recommends Christopher Hernandez For Alderman in Waukesha District 3.

James Wigderson clarifies things in Which candidate is he [not James but Charles Betker] not endorsing?

I included this post from Jeff entitled Sweeping The Streets: March 27, 2008 because he touched on Mayor Nelson being unfairly blamed for downtown vacancies and because once again we are shown how much the public doesn’t understand TIFs.

Bryon Houlgrave posted a funny picture. While this shot is humorous, this post tells some of the trials of trying to get those pictures.

Josh presents some good thoughts on sex offenders posted at Blog Waukesha.

Pete Fanning gives us a truly disturbing political video.

Wisconsin State Senator Mary Lazich (aide Kevin Fischer?)informs us about taxes in her post, Tax Freedom Day in Wisconsin is April 24 posted at Conservatively Speaking.

Shawn Matson has made some adjustments to his blog now entitled The Case for Milwaukee to his blog. You can now also get to it via this link.

The Asian Badger has a post showing us that not all liberals are completely brain dead.

That concludes this edition, but by no means exhausted all the fine posts this time. It is election time, after all.
