Scott Walker caught in the Zoo.

How can you post something that is just an outright lie?

Tom Barrett in favor of roads? No one is drinking that disinformation bilge.

Tom Barrett opposed the zoo interchange reconstruction constantly:

Milwaukee Mayor Barrett: Thanks Governor for Zoo Interchange Veto
7/21/2005--Tom Barrett press release.

“Milwaukee city officials, citing environmental concerns, want to put the brakes on the fast-track schedule for reconstructing the Zoo Interchange. Patrick Curley, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's chief of staff, is pushing the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to complete a full environmental impact study of the project instead of an abbreviated environmental assessment.” October 2006 WI Business Journal.

To say that Tom Barrett was in favor of roads and Zoo Interchange reconstruction is like saying Bill Clinton favor marital fidelity!

Is this what we call a liberal "whopper" of a lie? I've never seen such an obvious example before.

Kevin, if you'd stop pushing blind people off the curb the way you did all through high school, you'd know better than to ask a question like that. :^)

Kevin Scheunemann said...


I'm shocked that you didn't include my fictional puppy unkindness in college... :^)

Kev - how is slowing down a fast-track schedule to preform a full environmental analysis equal to opposing reconstruction altogether?

Logical arguments, try them sometime.

Mpeterson said...

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 continues to prevent me from making any comments whatsoever about your activities or performance while a student at UWWC. ;^)

Mpeterson said...

...plus I have no evidence that you abused puppies while you were in high school. ;^)

Kevin Scheunemann said...


Tom looks pretty dumb opposing the fast track now.

This bridge needed fast track replacement. Everyone seemed to know it except for Tom Barrett.

Environmental study? Its already a concrete jungle, just what environmental study was Barrett (and Doyle) hoping for that justified this transportation disaster?

Is this a native mating site for UW-professors or something?

This disaster is a perfect example of why government cannot be trusted with dedicated fund accounts like the Transportation fund. Doyle's been raiding it like candy.

Local_MLIS_Student said...

Kev - you didn't answer my question.

You said "Tom Barrett opposed the zoo interchange reconstruction constantly"

Yet the evidence you site indicates he opposed putting it on a "fast-track schedule", which is NOT the same as opposing the construction itself.

See the difference?

Kevin Scheunemann said...


No, I don't see the difference.

When you take into account Tom Barrett's almost drooling, rapid religious support, of putting in a money wasting choo choo train...

There is precious little emination from Tom about taking time for "environmental study" on the Madison to Milwaukee train issue!

A Madison to Milwaukee (or vice versa) has 10,000 times more environmental issues than a set of bridges at one major intersection of interstates!

So when its a project Tom wants, the environmental study be damned!

So based on this, YES, Tom has not supported the zoo interchange.

His religious zeal for roads is non-existent by comparison to choo choo trains.

If you can justify this, then I can take your argument seriously...otherwise it just make me chuckle, like the claim Bill Clinton believes in marital fidelity!

"otherwise it just make me chuckle, like the claim Bill Clinton believes in marital fidelity!"

Or the claim that you are a fiscal conservative ;)

Kevin Scheunemann said...


I always considered myself a "fiscal Libertarian".

Free Lunch said...

Fiscal libertarian: someone who wants all of the benefits of a well-ordered advanced nation without having to pay any of the costs. See selfish fool.

Kevin Scheunemann said...

Free Lunch...

Your definition is that of a "welfare advocating progressive/liberal".

Free Lunch said...

Yes, Kevin, I do care about the welfare of the people in this country. I am proud to do so. I cannot understand why you do not.

Kevin Scheunemann said...

Free Lunch,

The welfare of the people in this nation are best supported by freedom and liberty...and that includes economic liberty.

You do not support economic liberty if you support punishing savings, investment, achievement, and responsible behavior by taxation in favor of rewarding the irresponsible. (I include government, corporations and some citizens in this definition.)

When you do that, you turn the country into the hell that is France, Greece, and Cuba where there is a disincentive to work, a disincentive to do a good job, and a disincentive to achieve and take risks to create jobs. This leaves less resources for all and an unavoidable social crisis that makes these countries unstable from the lack of economic freedom.
