Mike McCabe running for Wisconsin governor 2018

Letter To The People - June 2018

Publisher's Commentary by Rökker

The last time the stakes were this high most of us in Wisconsin were sleeping. The 2010 election wave that swept in Tea Partiers across the nation hit hard here at home. Just after the Packers won the Superbowl, newly elected governor Scott Walker (whom it seemed no one cared to know much about) announced Act 10 and all hell broke lose. Protests became a daily routine and record size crowds showed up. But governor Walker’s ears were deaf when it came to what the people wanted, though it seemed he was ready anytime to listen to the Koch Brothers and their agenda.

Letter To The People - May 2018

Publisher's Commentary by Rökker

Star Trek has always been at the forefront dissecting the challenges of current culture. The original series from the late 60’s often used the science fiction backdrop as a setting to reflect the dangers of our larger social problems. Star Trek helped us to understand the issues in a new way so that we might use those lessons to better our society. It sure worked with the techie aspect of the show.

Then came the feature films and of course The Next Generation (who can forget the Ferengi and their race of ruthlessly greedy merchants?). But it is 1982’s The Wrath of Kahn that has a quote that I think reflects our current political situation in Wisconsin and could affect our current race for governor.

In this famous scene, Spock has realized that during the battle between starships, the USS Enterprise has been terminally damaged and it’s nuclear core will detonate killing all aboard unless the core can be cooled down. The only way to accomplish this feat is by hand and would surely mean he would not survive the radiation, even wearing a suit. Against all warnings from other crew, Spock enters the chamber and performs the task, saves the ship and is now dying from severe radiation poisoning. Through the glass, Captain Kirk asks Spock “Why?”, as his friend is slowly passing. His answer is (those of you who know can recite it now) “The needs of the MANY outweigh the needs of the few… or one”.

In our reality that statement is exactly the opposite of how our government is working in Wisconsin and federally. We live in a world where government works for a few people at the top but doesn’t work for the vast majority of people. Let’s read it the way it is now, “The needs of the few, or the one, outweigh the needs of the many”. How do you feel now?

What's in your candidate's past?

Letter To The People - April 2018

Publisher's Commentary by Rökker

This issue is dedicated to the Memory of Luke Jorgensen who passed away shortly after playing the Charity Jamboree at the High Noon Saloon last month. A worker and believer in the Madison music scene. He will be missed.

Wisconsin Gubernatorial Democratic Primary: I’m not making this easy for you, am I? You are probably sitting there thinking, “why doesn’t he just tell me who to vote for and be done with it?”

Believe me, I wish I could, but that would only continue our current dilemma of not thinking for ourselves and doing our own “research” on the candidates.
