Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

Monday Quickies

  • First, whether you think you're in the left, right, or center--or even not anywhere on the spectrum--you should be concerned that they're going to take away "internet neutrality." What does this mean? Your ISP could decide to block, well, anything. Here's more about how you can help.

  • For the record, Patrick McIlheran's links to me have brought, according to the SiteMeter, zero hits. I'm not sure what it means, but I feel the need to say it. Update, April 27: One hit.

  • Carrie Lynch writes a post I never had time to.

  • The best part of this story:
    [T]he reason Wisconsin's Tax Freedom Day is nine days later than when Doyle first started in office is because the federal government has been asking for more money. The Tax Foundation report shows federal spending drove the change--not state or local governments.

    And Green voted for three of the last four federal budgets.
  • Seth tells us about CFAF, which is not the sound of coughing up phelgm, but an "interest group." The discussion raises an interesting point: Since the governor has no say in a constitutional amendment, like the TABOR family amendments, why is Mark Green campaigning for governor on the issue? Why is CFAF running ads against Doyle about it?

  • Read about a conservative whose health insurance company wants her to die. As there are no atheists in foxholes, there are none opposed to health care reform among the seriously ill.

  • Remember when the right Cheddarsphere had a fit about Jim Doyle holding hearings to try to figure out why gas prices were so high? (Fraley is still at it.) Well, let's see if they lay into George W. Bush with the same kind of gusto.
