The hate left's latest target.

Folkbum has put a hate piece out on Kevin Fischer.

In it he claimed, "When a conservative has irritated both Wigderson and Dooley, you know there's something wrong with him."

To set the record straight Kevin Fischer has never irritated me. I have had two posts about his blog, one in which I did a guess the number and one on the over/under of Elvis posts.

Both of those posts were in jest and in neither of them did I say a bad word about Kevin Fischer. I have no issues with Fischer's content at all and he really does a fabulous job of covering issues local to the City of Franklin.

Why Folkbum decided to attack Mr. Fischer is beyond my grasp. Why Folkbum mischaracterized my position is plain, he thought it gave him further proof for his attack. Why, if I was negative toward Mr. Fischer, he must be bad.

Mr. Wigderson has demanded a retraction.

Folkbum knows how to get in touch with me; I would have gladly told him I have no issues with Kevin Fischer had he asked, he didn't.

The rest of the local hate left is dutifully jumping on board in their latest attempt to silence an area conservative.

For the record. Kevin Fischer is a daily read for me. I have no issues with his content and I find it charming how he gets revved up on something, he may post 2 dozens posts on the same subject a day.

As for Folkbum. Nothing new. Just another dishonest attack piece.

You have got to be kidding me.

The Obama camp is pushing the idea of John Edwards as Attorney General.

Just what we need a dishonest personal injury attorney heading the justice department.

This is actually just a move to nudge Edwards out of the race.

Fonz statue moves forward.

By CARRIE ANTLFINGER,
Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 6 minutes ago

MILWAUKEE - Aaaaaaay! The Fonz will be returning to Milwaukee later this year — permanently, and in bronze.


A statue of Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, the leather-jacketed biker from "Happy Days," will be erected in the city where the TV sitcom was set, now that local groups have raised the $85,000 needed to do it, civic leaders said Friday.


85 grand. I'm all for art but isn't there some pressing issue that.......


Never mind.


Can we do Pinky Tuscadero next?

Story.

"Help, help! I'm being oppressed!"

So he grew up in the south Bronx, moved to Orlando and started doing theater after High School. He’s then picked up by an agent and the rest, as they say, is history.

Someone wanna tell me how this guy is being oppressed while being treated like a royalty (well, a star anyway) and gets paid what he does ($13,000,000 for the last ‘Blade’ movie in 2004)?

I always thought he was a straight shooter, but really, he’s just an arrogant S.O.B.

Now he wants to renounce his citizenship and not pay a dime in taxes?
You’re ‘oppressed?’
Well as the eloquent U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard would say, “I don’t care!”
Shut up and pay or leave.

Oops...

Riddle me this:

As of 18:30 tonite, there has only been ONE vote for McCain on the poll to the right.

ONE vote in 21!
I'm not real good at math, but thats less than the 30 or so percent he seems to keep getting in those special states that get to decide who I can vote for in the next presidential election.

Who are these people that continue to see him as the best option, second best or the savior of the party?
What magic spell does he weave in his commercials that swoons so many voters?

Caption this..

Like “Entrapment”…

So apparently after sitting outside in the cold for too long, Fred has bestowed upon me the “take care of this thing while I’m gone” privileges.
I said, “are you sure?”
That was followed with “oh, sure. Just don’t swear.”
Okey-dokey.…I can do that.
I think.
When I told the soon to be Mrs. still Unreal, she was excited and had only one proviso.
And I quote: “NO GLOBAL WARMING!”
Well, there went most of my topics.
Oh well….the things we men do, eh?

Talk amongst yahselves...

Let me give you a topic: Residency requirements.

On the way in to work this morning, I heard of an interesting debate regarding residency requirements for MPS. I’ve only had exposure to this rule years ago when a good friend of mine and her husband both worked for MPS. She loved working at MPS, but had absolutely no interest in living in Milwaukee if she could help it – even though she worked at a school on Vleit street. So their solution was to move to the very southern border of Milwaukee county. She kept commenting how funny it was that if she lived across the street, she would be ineligible to work at MPS.
Fast forward to today, and its still an issue.
I, personally, cant really see the strong positives of a residency requirements.
One interesting question that was posed during a recent discussion was “what if you replace MPS with ‘Brewers’ or ‘Packers’ and enforce that rule?
I am not as hardened on this issue as some others, and would like to hear other opinions.
So please, state your cases for or against and why.

Celeb Endorsements

A friend of mine forwarded to me a fundraising/endorsement email he got from Jon Voight telling why he supported Rudy Giulliani.

At the end of the note he asked me the following...

Chuck Norris, Ric Flair and now Jon Voight. The GOP sure has a star-studded endorsment list :) I wonder who Jon Voight's Lebaron is endorsing?

Great question!

I doubt if Jon Voight's Lebaron runs very well on ethanol so we can add that to the list!

Thompson is withdrawing.

Rumor has it Fred Thompson has seen the writing on the wall and is withdrawing from the race.

The other players in the Troha case.

We know a great deal about the Dennis Troha case. We know about Troha and John Erickson trying to buy influence and skirting campaign finance laws to do so. We know Troha will be sentenced in March.

But what do we know about other people involved in the same activity in the Kenosha area? Not much, the media has not done a very good job of looking at the public record and asking questions.

In Dan Bice's column last week he said the following in reference to the Dennis Troha case,

"When a federal prosecutor says a case is ongoing, it can mean any number of things. The case could be all but dead. Or a massive indictment could be handed down tomorrow. It's anybody's guess." But Matthew Jacobs, an assistant U.S. attorney, is specific about what is happening in the federal probe of Kenosha businessman Dennis Troha. In March, Troha will be sentenced on misdemeanor charges of funneling campaign cash through his family to the state Democratic Party and President Bush's campaign. "There's the possibility of another individual being indicted," Jacobs said Wednesday.

The Troha matter is far from over - you might be amazed at the number of people who ponyed up huge money with connections to Dennis Troha in Kenosha.

Of course we already know that John Erickson entered a plea deal and admitted to a conspiracy to funnel illegal campaign donations to persons who supported the Kenosha casino project.

Dennis Troha's plea was designed to keep other members of his family out of trouble. The thought that he is up on misdemeanor charges is outrageous.

According to the prosecutor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Jacobs, “There is no criminal allegation on the part of politicians in here.”

So the question remains, who had significant ties to Erickson and Troha that also wanted the Kenosha Casino project bad enough to give large sums of money to attempt to sway political policy?

Campaign donations are of course public record, and they tell an interesting tale of who gave what to whom. What those records do not tell you is why those individuals gave what they did and what their motivations were.

The following is a reporting of some individuals with ties to Troha and Erickson in Kenosha who gave very large amounts of money in roughly the same time frame and in larger amounts than had previously been given. Of course this information does not prove anything but if I were Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Jacobs, I'd certainly have a number of questions as to the motivations of these individuals who suddenly opened their wallets so wide.

All of these examples have three things in common.

Each of these individuals’ campaign contributions increased heavily during the time period the FBI is investigating (2002 – 2007).

Some of these individuals had not given any contributions to political candidates prior to the time period in question. However, during that time period they contributed several thousands of dollars.

Nearly every time one of these individuals contributed to a political candidate, either Dennis Troha, a Troha family member, John Erickson, or another potential co-conspirator also contributed, on that same day, to the same candidate.

Frank Pacetti, Executive Vice President, JHT Holdings, Inc., City of Kenosha Alderman .

If you have read this through to the bottom you are a real trooper. I fully expect 90% of readers to have given up on this before reaching this point.

What this pattern of giving appears to show is a more widespread pattern of attempted influence than has ever been reported before. I have no idea how much of this the US Attorney has looked into, but the scale of this appears to be massive.

I believe in the power of math and to my view the coincidences here appear to be something less than random occurrences.

The very fact that this could be misdemeanor activity boggles my mind.

By the way, Governor Doyle has kept every penny.

I don't really have a dog in this hunt, I favor the Kenosha Casino. I fear that the shenanigans behind trying to move the project forward have in the end hurt the chances of this project coming to fruition.

I am also aware that right now no new casino applications are being processed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Might that change? In a lame duck administration maybe yes and maybe no.

In the short term I believe we need to treat persons willing to try and abuse the system more harshly. We don't need new laws, we need to enforce the laws that we already have and perhaps repeal some other ones. The first one I would like to see gone would be 527 PACS where organizations can hide where their funding is coming from.

I'm exceedingly curious to see how this investigation ends up. However, a slap on the wrist is not going to keep this sort of thing from happening again.

January 21, 2008

Looks like there was a decent debate tonight.

A fascinating read about the latest Democratic debate.

Stole this from Joey....


Where'd I put that thing?

Oh there it is.

Better wait until tomorrow though, all Packers all the time today.

Let me get this straight. Fraud here and here but not there...

We reported earlier about how Bill Clinton & Chelsea Clinton say they witnessed voter suppression in Nevada.

Now, Barack Obama's camp is claiming the Clinton Campaign was passing out material suggesting registration was closing a half hour earlier than agreed upon In Nevada. Obama's folks claim they received as many as 300 complaints.

So, having listened to area liberals last week claiming there are no voter issues in Wisconsin we can conclude this.

There are only vote fraud issues when liberals are running against liberals, there is never voter fraud in general elections in Wisconsin, ever...

What the intellectually dishonest left is claiming is that there is no evidence of vote fraud because there have been so few prosecuted cases.

Well the law, as it stands, makes it virtually impossible to prove. We have also had dishonest partisan D.A.'s who have refused to prosecute for partisan reasons (smokes for votes anyone?).

All we are asking is a minimal amount of accountability in the process.


Is not the right to vote worth a minimal attempt at integrity?

No one is trying to suppress anything (well, except the Clinton and Obama campaigns apparently). In fact both parties go to great lengths in get out the vote efforts. (well, unless the tires on all of their vans get slashed).

However, those who would prefer an environment open to widespread and easy fraud are trying their best to spin the debate that massive amounts of people would be disenfranchised; that is simply dishonest.

You can barely do anything in this society without an ID. In most states an ID is required to vote and a minimal public information campaign would see to it that everyone who needed an ID could get one free of charge (that was provided for in the Wisconsin bill) .

My standard has always been the same, every legal vote counted and cast once.

That should be everyone’s goal.

If not, why not?

Come on down to Racine if you would like to see some real fraud. We have nasty drag and drops and bus loads of homeless people being brought in to claim they live in the district and same day register. Oh, and don't forget our friends at Voces de la Frontera who have a history of helping illegals get drivers licenses, registering people to vote and promoting to their illegal pals, VOTE, it's a power thing.

Nah, nothing to look at here at all, move along.

Truth is we have created an environment where it is easy to defraud the vote.

And now a bunch of cheaters are trying to keep things that way as they see it benefiting their cause.

I can guarantee you conservatives would do everything in their power to see that every person legally able to cast a ballot is allowed to do so. We're just not so big on the illegal votes.

MRQ of the week, we have a tie.

Well this is a first, we have a 3 way tie for MRQ of the week.

Polish Sausage.

A guy asks a clerk, 'In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?'

The clerk looks at him and says, 'Are you Polish?'The guy (clearly offended) says, 'Well, yes I am.But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage would you ask me if I was Italian?

Or if I had asked for German bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

Or if I had asked for a Taco would you ask if I was Mexican?

Would you?

Would you?!?

'The clerk says, 'Well, no!'

'If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?'

'Well, I probably wouldn't!'

With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, 'Well then, why did you ask me if I'm Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?'

The clerk replied, 'Because you're at Home Depot.'





(Thanks to my Uncle Bob for that one. He's in Dallas folks and has nothing to do today apparently)

Sleeves.

As your OFFICIAL Packers blog we have spent a great deal of time watching player interviews from the course of the week.

I've seen a half dozen reports from O & D Linemen who say they will not wear sleeves today.

Macho smacho, put on the sleeves.

Look it will be cold enough tonight to easily get frostbite and you are playing for a Superbowl berth. How would you like to miss that game because you have serious tissue damage caused by frostbite?

Not wearing sleeves will not help in intimidating the Giants. This is the NFC Championship, they'll be motivated by that and that alone.

Be safe, put on the sleeves and win at home by beating the crap out of your opponents and winning the game on the field.

The mind game is NOT important.

Fill in the blank.

Camp Obama is complaining about a Robocall that used his middle name...

Why?

If you want to see how nasty Democrats are all you have to see is how they treat each other.

Bill Clinton says he witnessed voter suppression

From the Politico:

Bill Clinton, speaking at a Vegas YMCA last night, made more charges against Obama and claimed to have, with Chelsea, personally witnessed voter suppression by the Culinary Workers:

There is this whole business of the new politics. Well I got a taste of the new politics today. We need a new politics where we all love each other. You’ve heard all that. There’s a radio ad up in the northern part of Nevada telling Republicans that they ought to just register as Democrats for a day so they can beat Hillary and go out and be Republicans next week and vote in the primary. Doesn’t sound like the new politics to me. Today when my daughter and I were wandering through the hotel, and all these culinary workers were mobbing us telling us they didn’t care what the union told them to do, they were gonna caucus for Hillary. There was a representative of the organization following along behind us going up to everybody who said that, saying 'if you’re not gonna vote for our guy were gonna give you a schedule tomorrow so you can’t be there.' So, is this the new politics? I haven’t seen anything like that in America in 35 years. So I will say it again – they think they're better than you.

No Bill that voter suppression never happened, you see there has been no conviction from that activity so it never occurred.
