Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
I’m sure he felt about as courageous as the Cowardly Lion. (Kevin’s not here…..now’s my chance!)
Rather than stomp my feet, hold my breath till I turn blue, accuse the entire world of ganging up on me, start a petition, or crawl into the fetal position, I will, instead, resort to the appropriate action: I will respond.
I will post exact quotes that were made and interject my reactions (in red).
Kevin's post about congratulating those who don't vote was as appalling as the concept of putting our students in portable classrooms. (Appalling is a bit strong. And no one is putting anybody in a portable classroom. Earth to genius boy: Franklin school officials lied about that to get you to foolishly vote for the referenda, and you did).To encourage people to NOT vote (I did no such thing. I said I had no problem with uninformed uneducated voters staying home) so his radical group (that would be the liberal code word for “conservatives,” the folks who want honest elections by supporting photo ID…pretty radical, huh?) gets another check in the W column is not only appalling, (Second use of that word in such a short time. Lose your thesaurus, Greg?) but rather disgusting. (Kind of like saying everybody should pay a whole bunch of high taxes when you live at home and don’t pay any. Yeh, I’d call that disgusting. But not getting bent out of shape over low voter turnouts……I don't find that disgusting) By him being so bold (And restless) about it shows that he at least believes no one cares and will accept his slap in the face and the "HA HA!" attitude. (I never laugh when I slap someone in the face).Our Aldermen and School Board members ran UNOPPOSED last April as well, and look at what we're getting - tax increases and a lack of common sense in the case of planning and development. But that's EXACTLY what people like Fischer want. (How true. The very literate Kowalski has obviously read the 754 blogs I’ve written advocating tax increases).It makes me want to throw up. (Would that be mac and cheese, cheesecake, a Big Mac, or all three?)
Here’s another Kowalski beauty:
But see - they NEEDED the portable classrooms...it was (Correct grammar use referring to plural, classrooms: they were) absolutely necessary - there was no schools (“There was no schools.” Any English teacher who read that went into cardiac arrest, no doubt. Kowalski’s blogs are not a positive endorsement for spending lots of cash on Franklin schools) for them to go to.
On another topic when a reader pressed Kowalski, our erstwhile blogger shot back with:
Quick question: Did you have children in the high school, or are enrolled in FHS currently? (Hmmmmm. Do you have children in the high school, Greg? I’m not black, female, a professional chef or football player, but I still feel competent to write about minority and women’s issues, food and the Packers. In other words, the question he raised was really dumb).
And I could go on and on and on.
It’s no surprise he caused a ruckus on, of all days, Veteran’s Day.
And since he can’t go toe to toe in a debate with Janet Evans, his childish mind instructs him to call her “hunny”and “little girl.”
When I was Greg’s age, no matter how I felt about people my age or Janet Evans’ age, it didn’t matter. I called them Sir or Mrs. Evans. I was taught to always show respect for those older.
Maybe Greg was sick that day in the Kowalski household.
Anywho, two quick final thoughts.
1) Keep ‘em coming, Greg. Love those nice, slow hanging meatballs right across the plate.
2) Santa, if you’re reading this, please, no matter what Greg asks for………..get him spell-check instead.
