Allowing Wiggy column space really diminishes the quality of the overall product, and I would highly recommend NOT being a subscriber to that paper. Jimmy's latest column was one that if you have come to expect lies propaganda and deceit, you would not be disappointed.
Wigderson attempts to try and diminish the craziness of the right of people like Republican elected officials Kapenga and Pridemore! Of course whenever someone on the right pretends to object to republican insanity, they perpetually do it using false equivalency.
in recent years, the theories have had a poisoning effect on politics. Many on the Democratic left and in the Libertarian Party believe that the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center were really controlled detonations by agents of the Bush administration.
Quick question, how many of your left leaning friends, family or acquaintances think that the Bush administration were behind 911? Im guessing your number is the same as mine - 0! (FYI - for our friends on the right who are mathematically challenged, zero would NOT be many).
Part of it is denial. If someone believes that Obama stole the election through fraud, they don’t have to believe that millions of Americans chose to re-elect the creator of Obamacare who presided over $6 trillion in new debt.Another point for our mathematically challenged friends on the right, 9 ELECTED republicans craziness does not equal ZERO democrats who supposedly believe the Bush Administration was behind 9/11.
Some on the right, including a state legislator from Idaho, are even suggesting boycotting the Electoral College vote to force the election into the House of Representatives. It is a strange misreading of the Constitution by people who claim to be strict Constitutionalists.
Then there is the response. If Obama is somehow illegitimate, then his laws should have no force. So we have nine(republican) members of the Legislature who bizarrely believe that Wisconsin law enforcement should arrest any federal agent that attempts to implement Obamacare here.
Among the nine are local state Reps. Chris Kapenga and Rob Hutton, and state Sen. Mary Lazich.
They believe that states have the right to declare federal laws null and void (nullification) if the laws are unconstitutional. It was last tried in Wisconsin before the Civil War to thwart the federal fugitive slave law. However, even the supporters of nullification from that era did not arrest federal officials trying to enforce the law.
Wisconsin’s Supreme Court was overruled by the U.S. Supreme Court, and nullification has not been a credible idea in our state since.
If the failed idea of nullification isn’t strong enough, there is always secession. There are now secession petitions started in each of the 50 states.
Last I checked my history books, secession was effectively dealt with 1865. Some of you may have learned this at the movie theaters recently.
The rest of the article was so poorly written I dont have the time or inclination to correct, just say that I do NOT recommend reading it. Wiggy REALLY needs and editor and a fact checker!
This is the kind of BS yo u get from our friends on the right and also shows that our "media" is anything but liberal.
I recommend contacting the Freeman and asking them for a higher quality product, one that is free of MacIver flunkies.

For the record regarding my thoughts on 911 truthers:
As anyone who paid attention during the 8 years of the Bush Administration knows, that their unbelievable level of incompetence, would make them incapable of performing something like 9/11. If Bush/Cheney had planned 9/11, instead of planes flying into buildings, it would have resulted in a couple guys running their ten speeds into a Dairy Queen in New Mexico.
