Attorney General Kaul Begins Term with Partisan Attack

Here we go. Keeping it classy.

MADISON, Wis. – New Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul is criticizing Republican lawmakers in his inauguration speech.

Kaul took the oath of office Monday along with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers during a ceremony in a packed state Capitol rotunda.

Kaul delivered a short speech, ripping Republican legislators for passing lame-duck legislation in December that weakened both his and Evers’ offices.

Kaul said such a move was unprecedented and was designed to hinder both him and Evers. He warned Republicans the state Justice Department’s priorities will still shift during his tenure with a sharper focus on environmental and consumer protection.

    “I’m coming after poor people”!

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    How is environmental enforcement and consumer protection twisted to mean, “I’m coming after poor people!”  ??  More untruthful hyperbole on your part.

  3. dad29

    As usual, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, you have no clue.

    Enviro regs always, always, always, cost the under-class more (as a percentage of income) than it does State employees/retirees.  The poor slobs who scrape and scratch to buy a 1995 car usually wind up paying a LOT of money to get the car to pass the Enviro-Green-Weenie ’emissions’ regulations imposed by the Democrat-Fascist Imperium.

    When they can’t come up with the hundreds of dollars to repair the car, they simply run with expired registration, inevitably getting ticketed for that.  Since they cannot obtain registration, they ‘skip’ on the fine and risk another arrest.  Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.

    Then, when they lose their license for driving without the blessing of the Green Fascist Machine, they drive without a license, too.  That’s so they can keep their job and the hope of purchasing a compliant car.\

    Further, all the Enviro-Green-Fascist regs which impose costs on utilities actually impose them on ratepayers (consumers, LeeeeeRoy.)  So those people who can’t afford to fix their car also pay more for electricity, yanking that noose just a bit tighter.

    It’s what we call a Green Fascist Lynching, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy.  Get into the real world and learn.

    Any proof?  You are certainly entitled to your opinion, however misinformed it may be, but not your own set of alternative facts.  In seconds I found all sorts of data refuting your claim.  You could as well.  Or are you relying strictly on what kevin tells you to say??

  5. jjf

    For extra credit, let’s have Dad29 share his knowledge of other government edicts that disproportionately and unjustly affect the poor more than the rich, and his explanation of whether he opposes those laws for this reason.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann

    “environmental” enforcement, generally, falls upon municipalities as UNFUNDED mandates!

    Who pays in municipalities?  Water and sewer rate payors and taxpaers through property taxes.

    MS-4 storm water permitting being an obvious environmental reg that hurts the poor the most!

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    ““environmental” enforcement, generally, falls upon municipalities as UNFUNDED mandates!”    You are truly delusional.  Why do you have to be so dishonest about things where you are so easily proven wrong?  It must be a pathological inability to tell the truth.  No wonder you are a big 45 supporter.

  8. Jason

    > Why do you have to be so dishonest about things where you are so easily proven wrong?  It must be a pathological inability to tell the truth.


    Says the bum who has been proven wrong countless times.  Ironic.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    I bet you have no clue what MS-4 permit mandates are.

    You showed your total ignorance of MS-4 permitting with that response.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Try again. This time think a little bigger.

    The issue at hand was your claim, ““environmental” enforcement, generally, falls upon municipalities as UNFUNDED mandates”.   There is a lot more to EE than an MS4 permit.

  11. dad29

    Says the bum who has been proven wrong countless times.  Ironic.

    Yah, I’m past bothering to refute his lies.  Typical State union-shop employee, used to getting whatever they want because Authority.

    Adding 1+1 is beyond him.

  12. jjf

     used to getting whatever they want because Authority.

    Whew, spit my milk there, for at least two reasons.

  13. Le Roi du Nord


    FYI; I was never in a state union.  You missed again.

    jjf: That is just another indication of how clueless ole dud is now-a-days.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who do you think MS-4 mandates, and the horrendous costs to implement stormwater, mosquito, disease producing bio-filters fall upon the most?…the poor! …in more ways than 1!

    Do you need a diagram?

  15. jjf

    Kev, care to show us how your business pays its fair share of wastewater treatment, and why you know that business better than the people at the wastewater treatment plant, or at a hypothetical DNR where they care about clean water?

  16. dad29

    Kevin, they don’t really care if the poor–or anyone else–is ground to smithereens though regs which “save the world and the whales.”  They only care that now they Feel Good.  As to leeeeeeroy’s status with the State:  it’s worse than I imagined.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    We were talking about hateful lineral proposals, like the AG.    If you want to talk about how middle income people, like myself, cannot afford MS-4 mandates, fine…but why to you calously ignore the burden it puts on the poor?

    Very insensitive.   Like Nord.

  18. Le Roi du Nord


    A diagram would be great.  Show where in the process the poor are taxed more than those better off to pay for storm water management. Include the part in the tax code that allows that to occur.  And how about the part where those disease-producing bio-filters are mandated.  And where the pollution that MS4 requirements controls is good for the poor, or anybody for that matter.

    Even better would be a specific example that proves any of your claims.  Factual representation of that example would be a plus.


  19. dad29

    K, he’s just a troll…..don’t feed the trolls…..

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    He is a typical liberal, no cost/benefit analysis for the most damaging, ineffective, regs.

  21. jjf

    Again, Kevin, how did you assess the true cost of what you want to put down your drains?

  22. Le Roi du Nord

    So you chickened out on the diagram, eh?  Those darned facts keep tripping you up.

  23. Kevin Scheunemann


    Your question shows your ignorance of MS4 permitting and it’s cost to the poor.


    I have to go to store and get more silly putty to dumb it down enough for your comprehension.

    Sorry about the delay.

    However, if you chose not to be ignorant, dumbing debate down would not be necessary.

  24. jjf

    Kevin, the smartest guy in the room!

  25. Le Roi du Nord


    If silly putty is your choice, it matters not to me.  What does matter is that you follow through, and use facts.  Betcha don’t do either.

  26. jjf

    Shorter Kevin:

    K:  The regulations are onerous!

    Me: How?

    K: You obviously are ignorant!


  27. Le Roi du Nord

    k determines who is or isn’t ignorant based on some arbitrary absolute truth known only to him.  He has a pathological need to always present himself as the smartest person on each and every subject.  Introspection and self-analysis are not in his lexicon.   Once we all realize those traits he is easy to deal with and have fun with.  Keep up the good work, j.

  28. jjf

    It’s far more interesting to talk to a truly smart person, no matter whether I agree with them on a point or not.  I can always learn from a smart person.

  29. Kevin Scheunemann


    Let’s start.   do you know what Ms-4 permiting and mandates are?

  30. jjf

    A liberal conspiracy, hell-bent on destroying private enterprise but especially the retail vendors of ice milk?

  31. Kevin Scheunemann

    10% right.

    Keep going.


  32. jjf

    Godless communism religion sapping your precious bodily fluids?

  33. Le Roi du Nord


    See the EPA link above.  k doesn’t really understand MS4 either.

  34. jjf

    Kevin, I have no doubt that you have much more experience with the wastewater permitting process than I do.  That’s why I asked you why you think it’s onerous.  I am sure I can learn from you.

    There are other topics I might know better than you.  Do you think you could learn from me?
