Blog interest in 2018 signals 2019's focus

Some feedback for you, and thank you again for the readership.

These items were the five most-downloaded in 2018:

*  Foxconn Fever, a primer
This posting is a running archive over a year-and-a-half with more than 260 separate items.
*  Walker's eight-year war on the WI environment. 21 parts. 1 post.
This posting was a series and covered a lot of topics.
*  Water pollution in Wisconsin skyrockets during Walker reign

*  "#Scottholes" land on Twitter, Wausau "STOP" billboard

*  Walker gets the blame for poorly prepping Foxconn

And, by the way, since Walker's defeat, this is the single most-downloaded blog item, so I think we can see in what direction

you and I are headed:
The disrespected, manipulated Wisconsin electorate, 2.0
As we watch Vos and Fitzgerald - - obviously with Walker's approval - -

scheming to restrict Evers' governorship and essentially extend the defeated Walker's influence after being given the boot, I want to post another reminder - - I say "another" because I added this earlier today - - about what Walker had already put Wisconsin through before launching his ill-fated, egomaniacal presidential run in 2015.

This was the item's title:
The Disrespected, Manipulated Wisconsin Electorate
My point is that they're doing it again, big-time.

As you comb through this list which I was aiming at out-of-state media and potential primary voters, never forget that Walker actually bragged in his failed memoir about what he read to his senior staff in the early days of his first term, and know that no Democrat elected Tuesday would ever comport herself or himself this way, as I wrote in 2015:
Most politicians like to please as many people as possible.
Few Governors would read a snotty Top Ten Public Employee Insult List to the senior staff, including:
"On a snow day when they say “non-essential” people should stay home you know who they mean. 
"You know by having a copy of the Holy Koran on your desk your job is 100% safe. 
"You have a Democratic congressman’s lips permanently attached to your butt."
This is the sort of garbage that finally caught up with Walker on Tuesday, yet his legislative henchmen want to further embed his disrespectful and damaging legacy into the Wisconsin political environment.

Tell them "no!" And organize.

Keep it coming in 2019, James. You do a major public service that will continue to be needed as we clean up the mess Walker has left us in.

Thank you, Jake, and big props to you for the scrutiny you give the budget and other money matters.
