We know what the song was, we don't know why he was singing it or why he was calling a radio show from jail. And Eugene we don't need you to make excuses for him, masking this in attempting to give us the "origins of the song". So the man sang a gospel song, his actions have been nothing Christian.
And putting up the official looking responsible photo Eugene? Everyone else is running the more appropriate photo, the mug shot. The only reason to put that picture up is that you are trying to present a different image.
Hate's apologist, Eugene Kane, will not stop until McGee is out of jail.
It is deplorable that the major newspaper in this market continues to pay this racist apologist.
Will someone please fire this idiot?!?
Four people have been charged. One is in custody in New York. Three suspects are thought to be overseas.
Sources said one suspect is thought to be a former parliament or government official in Guyana.
Taxpayer-Funded Lawyers for Illegal Aliens: The Senate's bill would force taxpayers to foot the bill for many illegal aliens' lawyers. Under current law, illegal aliens are not eligible for federally funded legal services. Section 622(m) of the bill would allow millions of illegal aliens who work in agriculture to receive free legal services. Every illegal alien working in the agricultural sector would have access to an immigration attorney to argue his case through the immigration courts and federal courts of appeals—all at taxpayer expense. This provision alone could cost hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

Mark, the day after Vos cast the deciding vote to kill the 650% increase to fund the KRM commuter rail line you should have been praising the man instead of calling him out as a possible target for recall. As much breath as you have expended over the years fighting light rail how dare you call out Vos for something he has not done, but something you fear he may do.
Robin Vos is the real thing, a conservative who fights for conservative principles, you are barking up the wrong tree.
Tuition Subsidies for Illegal Aliens: The Senate bill incorporates the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (DREAM Act). The DREAM Act effectively repeals a 1996 federal law (8 U.S.C. § 1623) that prohibits any state from offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens unless the state also offers in-state tuition rates to all U.S. citizens. Ten states are currently defying this federal law. Section 616 would allow these and all other states to offer in-state tuition rates to any illegal alien who obtains the Z visa and attends college.
The injustice of this provision is obvious. Illegal aliens would receive a taxpayer subsidy worth tens of thousands of dollars and would be treated better than U.S. citizens from out of state, who must pay three to four times as much to attend college. In an era of limited educational resources and rising tuitions, U.S. citizens, not aliens openly violating federal law, should be first in line to receive education subsidies.
Further, legal aliens who possess an appropriate F, J, or M student visa would not receive this valuable benefit. Nor would they be eligible for the federal student loans that illegal aliens could obtain by this provision.
"Before I left, I knew that it was made clear to me, that in order to fight this, I had one shot, and that was going to be in Denver," he said. If doctors in Europe tried to treat him and it went wrong, he said, "it's very real that I could have died there."
Yes he had to get away from Europe's socialized medicine where he believed he would die, so he came to the best place in the world, Denver.
The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee deadlocked Thursday on a funding mechanism for the proposed Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee commuter rail link, rejecting a locally endorsed plan to boost a rental car fee by 650 percent.
Rail backers said the KRM is far from dead, however, as several steps remain in the budget process in which lawmakers could agree on the local funding source needed to build and operate the $198 million rail line.
"We're going to have an elongated budget process here," said Assembly Minority Leader Jim Kreuser, D-Kenosha, "so I'm not getting too excited about it."
State Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine, a Joint Finance member, floated the rental car increase motion Thursday as the committee scrutinized the state's 2007-09 transportation budget.
Lehman's motion went down on a partisan 8-8 vote, effectively stripping it from the budget proposal Joint Finance will present to the full Senate and Assembly.
Kreuser noted that the rental car fee increase - or any other KRM funding plan - could be added by the full Assembly or the Senate, or in a conference committee that will become involved if the two houses pass differing budget plans.
Backed by the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority in January, the proposed rental car fee hike would increase the amount now being charged in Kenosha, Racine and Milwaukee counties to $15 per rental. The current charge is $2.
Fee increase backers say it would generate the amount needed to cover local operating and bonding costs for the train system, while taxing primarily out-of-area rental car consumers. As proposed, the bulk of the rail line would be paid for with federal funds.
State Rep. Robin Vos, R-Racine, a Joint Finance member, is among those who have vociferously opposed the fee increase; he has said he believes the matter should go to a referendum.
I'm with Robin, I would LOVE to see a referendum on this thing. The backers are wrong though, this tax will in no way generate enough revenue to cover the operating shortfall (a shortfall at this projection at 82%), their projections (270+ riders per train) are just waaaaaaaaaaay too high. Plus any commuter rail line that ignores the airport is just plain DUMB.
Amnesty for Gang Members: Under Section 601(g)(2) of the bill, gang members would be eligible to receive amnesty. This comes at a time when violent international gangs, such as Mara Salvatrucha 13 (or "MS-13"), have brought mayhem to U.S. cities. More than 30,000 illegal-alien gang members operate in 33 states, trafficking in drugs, arms, and people. Deporting illegal-alien gang members has been a top ICE priority. The Senate bill would end that. To qualify for amnesty, all a gang member would need to do is note his gang membership and sign a "renunciation of gang affiliation."

McGee's uncle charged with buying votes
A man believed to be Ald. Michael McGee's uncle was charged today with bribing people to vote for McGee in the April 3 recall election which McGee won.
Garrett L. Huff, 58, was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit election bribery, the complaint said. It arises from a secret John Doe hearing that has been held at the Milwaukee County Courthouse over several months.
The complaint says that Huff paid voters $5 per vote.
Innocent until proven guilty, oh and here is the money phrase...
The accusation that McGee was shaking down constituents who wanted to do business in his district is troubling
Oh now that is some stinging insight Eugene... Troubling.
Would someone please fire this idiot?!?

First shooting in 72 hours reported.
A 22-year-old man was shot in the upper right arm on the city's north side overnight while sitting in the bed of a pickup truck with friends, Milwaukee police said today.The man told police he heard shots, felt pain and realized he had been shot in the arm about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 4600 block of N. 52nd St.No one is in custody.The case was the city's first reported shooting in since late Sunday night, according to police. The weekend saw five people shot, two of those being homicides.
It is pathetic to report in a headline that this is the first shooting in 72 hours. It is now apparently newsworthy to go 3 days without someone being shot.

Enforcement of Amnesty, Not Laws: The bill would transform Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from a law enforcement agency into an amnesty distribution center. Under Sections 601(h)(1, 5) if an ICE agent apprehends aliens who appear to be eligible for the Z visa (in other words, just about any illegal alien), the agent cannot detain them. Instead, ICE must provide them a reasonable opportunity to apply for the Z visa. Instead of initiating removal proceedings, ICE will be initiating amnesty applications. This is the equivalent of turning the Drug Enforcement Agency into a needle-distribution network.

He does take time today to blast Jessica McBride for removing some blog posts.
He fails of course to mention that Jessica McBride moved those comments and put them all into one post.
Placing things completely out of context attacking an innocent while ignoring a real criminal, now that is the Eugene Kane I know.
What a complete and total lack of any responsibility.
Kane's employer, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, does come out with an editorial calling for Jr McGee to resign. (about 4 scandals too late Ricardo)
I can tell you Kane will eventually say. Innocent until proven, people with a vendetta, his district supports him, yadda yadda same crap different scandal same corrupt politician.
In other news, this has gone national already...
Let us not forget this little reminder of where Michael McGee Jr is coming from; maybe we should bring in Rosie and Cindy Sheehan to prop him up, I hear they have some time on their hands. (Thanks for the memory jog KM)
What in the heck do worldwide profits have to do with Wisconsin income taxes? So the new standard is you when you are not headquartered in Wisconsin and you have profits in East Uzbeztekenstaninburgia you somehow owe extra Wisconsin tax?

Questions stream into the mind...
- Did this have anything to do with the recent recall election?
- Who will fill-in for the fill-in for Hate-Dad?
- How will Eugene Kane blame this on everyone but Jr McGee?
- How fast will Fox 6 get a camera in front of Sr?
- When will the riots begin?
- How fast will Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett hide under his desk?
- How will he get acquitted this time?
This is going to be the story of the summer kids, hang on.
UPDATE: McGee is due in court at 8:30 Tuesday morning and is being held on $250,000 cash bond... That is a whole lot of cash bond, they must be serious.
Update II: Extortion and Bribery, 30 years in prison with more charges to come.... Two people were arrested with him.
Yeah, but what does the middle finger tell them? Jib

Reverse Justice: The bill would effectively shut down the immigration court system. Under Section 601(h)(6), if an alien in the removal process is "prima facie eligible" for the Z visa, an immigration judge must close any proceedings against the alien and offer the alien an opportunity to apply for amnesty.

SCIENTISTS have bred cows that produce skimmed milk and hope to establish herds of the cattle to meet the demands of health-conscious consumers.
Cyber Dad says he would rather see cows give ice cream, or better yet blocked cheese.
Seriously though, why would health-conscious consumers want milk from genetically altered cows?
