Some telling quotes recently by some of the people in charge of our state the last three years:
Republican state Rep. John Klenke will not seek re-election:
Rep. Klenke issued the following statement when he made the announcement:Our own Governor Walker:
"Four years ago I ran for Wisconsin's 88th Assembly District seat to support Scott Walker's agenda for Wisconsin. Today, thanks to Governor Walker's leadership and the courage of the Wisconsin State Legislature, budget surpluses are the norm, tax cuts are routine, employment is increasing, and businesses are expanding. I am honored to have served in these historic times."
We’re turning things around. We’re heading in the right direction, but there is more work to be done. Passing our Blueprint for Prosperity will help move Wisconsin forward.
Bruce Ariens, new head of WMC:
“I know that Governor Walker and pro-growth lawmakers are committed to improving our business climate and WMC will play a leading role in developing and advocating polices that create jobs,” Ariens said. “WMC members can provide the day-to-day economic reality of what’s happening in the towns and cities and workplace across Wisconsin, one job at a time.”
Unfortunately, we live in the real world of Wisconsin and not the republican fantasy land these people live in.
The reality on the ground is NOT pretty!
Madison-based appliance and furniture retailer American is announcing plans to close its doors.

The release said the 60-year-old company struggled over the last five years and described the economy as "unforgiving."
