As Obama focuses on....

As Obama focuses on the economy global warming, I thought we should take a look back at the lies of AlGore and the global warming crowd.






But then facts don't matter when you are pushing an agenda.

Racine Mayoral Update

Racine Alderman Eric Marcus is collecting signatures for a run for Mayor.

Update: Penny Sharp has thrown her hat in the ring as has someone named Alfonso Locke whom I have never heard of before.

I know Eric and Penny, they are both persons of high charachter.  I am not slighting Mr. Locke here we have simply never met.

$50,000

That's the fine Brent Favre will pay for "failing to cooperate with a probe into allegations that he sent inappropriate messages and photos to a sports-television personality employed by the New York Jets".

Brent made $1,000,000 for not even holding a clip board on the side lines last night.

I'm sure he learned his lesson.

This will make you appreciate....

New York's snow removal failure really makes you appreciate the services here.

Documented alien with questions.

If I choose not to pay my taxes, can I just say that I want to be an undocumented taxpayer?
If I choose to sell cocaine, heroin or pot can I be called an undocumented pharmacist?
If I choose not to get a driver’s licence, cant I just be an undocumented driver?

If I choose not to buy health insurance that the Federales mandated on the people of this country, cant I just be an undocumented citizen?

Tell me, how is this different?

Ah the gift that keeps on giving...

I refer of course to global warming.

Well... one could hope.

What a wonderful thing this would be.

Pssssst! Psssst! Don't tell anyone but ...

Diamond Jim felt he needed one last junket at our expense, so when the opportunity to have another "free trip" before leaving office presented itself he just couldn't refuse.

Now, before all you Doyle Defenders try to deflect this as a trip to drum up "Green Jobs" business for Wisconsin let's check what took place against logic.

Doyle and his assistant's travel expenses and maybe some hotel and meals were paid by someone other than the state tax payers. But we paid the tab for the two body guards and another person. Over all not likely to be a huge budget busting expense, but still paid by the tax payer.

On ALL of Diamond Jim's previous junkets to get business for Wisconsin he took along a much larger group of people including those from our Commerce department and often a good number of business leaders who were there to assist in looking for ways to gain business for Wisconsin. Why not this time? Was he really seriously looking for more jobs for Wisconsin or was this just as I suggested - one last fling before leaving the governors job? After all the weather in Can-Cun is great this time of year. Did he even attend any of the sessions? Where are the agreements and a report about all the new "Green Job" opportunities he brought back with him?

On ALL previous trips the Governor's office made a HUGE splash in the media ahead of time about the great significance of the trip to wherever - looking to boost Wisconsin jobs and business. On this trip he tried to completely hide the fact that it even happened. Why? It couldn't be because this was just a free trip with no intention of bringing back anything to help out our state, or could it.

In the great scheme of things surrounding our states fiscal mess this is not by itself going to create a lot more ruin, but it is just another confirmation of the TOTAL LACK OF CHARACTER and ETHICAL PRINCIPLES that our soon to be X-Governor has had for the 8 looonnnggg years we have had him in the Governor's mansion doing everything possible to screw up our state!! Good ridance to an absolute failure as our Governor.

Do the math...

Click me to biggie size.

Guess the number game.

0.

I'm going to give this one to you.  0, the number of hearings, amount of testimony and number of amendments offered to the "Dream" act.

That's right folks, for all the scrutiny and for all the sanctimonious headlines written about this bill it skipped absolutely every normal process a bill going through our governmental system usually has to traverse.

Remember this with every headline you read that does not mention this.  The Dream Act was nothing but a political stunt.  I wish the left was willing to have an honest debate about this instead of just posturing for political purposes.

This should start with sealing our borders.

Should Xcel Energy Clean Up Its Act in Owen?

I interviewed Dr. Pamela Jaffke, a veterinarian in Owen, Wisconsin, who is suffering because of the bullheadedness of her utility company, Xcel Energy. They, along with the other state power companies and the Public Service Commission, refuse to take action to improve the safety of their product in spite of the continuous stream of health complaints like Dr. Jaffke's over the years.

It is time for the Wisconsin utilities to stop releasing their voltage trash - known as transients and harmonics - into the ground, and upgrade the system statewide to protect people, and not just cows, from exposure to biologically harmful ground currents. Rather than repost the whole shebang here, here is the link.

Who owns human genes?

For my first Real Debate Wisconsin science article, I have decided to focus on human gene patents. The issue involves the patent protection of thousands of human genes and the elimination of drug development, diagnostics or any type of discovery based on these genes without approval of the patent holders.

Genes, the DNA sequences found in cells, “code” for RNA which in turn codes for proteins, often contain non-coding sequences called introns. Think of a blind person “coding” Braille into words. Cells have to skip over the non-coding introns when turning DNA into RNA. The RNA made by cells therefore only contains the sequence that leads to production of a protein. When a gene is cloned in a laboratory, scientists fish around and create a synthetic gene called a cDNA (c for “complementary”) which excludes the introns and stitches only the coding sequences together. This construct does not exist in nature and can be used for further study. For example, diseases are often caused by mutations in genes that in turn lead to faulty RNA and ultimately proteins, so studying these genes can lead to diagnostics and drugs. It is important to note that the cDNAs contain no information not already found in genes, they are simply versions that have edited out the non-coding parts.

Beginning over twenty years ago, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as universities and foundations, tested the waters at the U.S. Patent and Trade office. They argued that these cDNA sequences were patentable, even though they only contained information already found in nature, because the cDNAs were synthetic products of scientists in laboratories. The PTO agreed. One of the early patent submitters, Myriad, applied for patent protection for two mutated genes responsible for some inherited forms of breast cancer, and these mutations were named BRCA1 and BRCA2. The patents were granted, and from that point on only Myriad could screen for those mutations in clinical tests.

The ACLU and a number of scientists have been challenging these patents for some time, and this past spring the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York invalidated Myriad’s BRCA patents. The U.S. government recently filed an amicus brief which argued for reversal of the original position of the U.S. PTO. I encourage anyone interested in this issue to read this brief (although it is not brief in length) because it provides a wonderful review of the science and explains their arguments extraordinarily well:

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/business/genepatents-USamicusbrief.pdf

I am a strong advocate of the patentability of drugs and diagnostics – without patent protection there would be no drugs or diagnostics available – because they are based upon new chemicals, new processes, and often both. However, I have always found the concept of patenting the information found inside human cells to be an abomination of patent law. One of Myriad’s many arguments is that production of a cDNA is non-obvious and in fact difficult, and does not exist in nature. No it doesn’t – but the sequence information does! As for it being difficult, I cannot patent a rock I find in my backyard, but if I spend lots of money to take an expedition to the Amazon, should I be able to patent a rock I find there?

A series of articles are now being offered by the Journal Sentinel that talk about a little boy who had all of his genes sequenced (no introns, just the coding information). This led to the discovery of a unique mutation in one of his genes and a subsequent treatment:

http://www.jsonline.com/features/health/111641209.html

Imagine if a company (or WARF) “owned” the mutated gene these physicians discovered. That little boy’s doctors would have been unable to do anything without permission of the patent holder.

What do you think?

This year's predictions revisited....

At the annual Drinking Right Christmas Party we take predictions from the attendees.  For purposes of accountability these are the prediction from last year.
**********************************************************

We entered 2009 thinking the Republican party was going to be "whigged". We'll exit 2010 seeing the first stages of the Democrat party actually being "whigged" from within. Shoebox.  All rightie then.


There will be a rebound in the Republican party. The US economy will worsen. We will be more invested in global wars. Expe.    Nice try.

Herb Kohl will leave the Senate. Sam Hagedorn.  Way off

Brewers miss the playoffs, Macha gets fired. Dean.  Nailed it!

Price of gold over $1,700 an ounce. I will not be asked to appear on the Charlie Sykes TV show. The Asian Badger      $1428.57

David Clark will be the next Milwaukee County Executive. Corey.   Wrong!

Scott Walker wins. Jill  Well done.

Scott Walker will be Governor. Da Bears will have a new Coach. I will lose 30 25 20 pounds. Chris from Racine.  1 out 3 ain't bad.

Governor Walker will drive Capper insane. Patrick.   False, he already was insane.

People will spend the $ they have. buy local. Gas will stay around #3.00 / gal (Fair $). Homes will start to move on the market, Barrett will stay in Milwaukee, and the Packers will win today. (They did) Jackie    Mostly correct.
Scott Walker becomes Governor. Lindsay Lohan dies. Mrs. The Chad.  Well, her career died.


Favre will do to the Vikes what he did to the Packers and Jets. Steve  The Egg man is wise.

Ann Coulter will pose for Playboy. James Wigderson.   Thankfully wrong.

Feingold wins re-election, GOP will get majority in house of Representatives, Dems retain majority in the Senate. Bill   Fail

My blog will make a comeback! Walker wins. The Divine Miss J.  Right on both counts!

Hillary will resign her position as Sec. of State in late 2010 and will announce her intention to run against Barrack Hussein Obama in a Democrat Primary. Glenn.   Not yet

Mary Landrieu gets recalled & Nebraska passes a recall law to get Nelson out. Kyle.  Don't try this for a living.

Brewers in the playoffs. The Tea party movement overwhelms the RNC. The Chad.  Chad and Mrs The Chad are well matched.

Packers will win the Superbowl. Doyle will retire out of the State of Wisconsin. JSOnline will charge a subscription fee. George Clooney will marry. Jimi.  I don't even know what to say here.

Mills Fleet Farm will merge with Blain's Farm & Fleet. Tom McMahon.  I eagerly await your next prediction

Kathy Carpenter will be re-elected to Kenosha City Council. Lisa.   Sadly you are correct and of course Kathy passed this year.  She is dearly missed.

Scott Walker will become Wisconsin's next Governor. Republicans will take back both houses of the state legislature. Peter.   Peter knocks it out of the park!


Obama will host a beer summit with Bin Laden... All we be hunky dorey. Still Unreal.  Have another beer

That lousy health care "reform" bill will be forced upon us. :( Marjie  Sadly true

Walker, winner. Joel Kleefish   Kleefish, correct.

Republicans pick up 20 seats in the House, 5 Senate seats. Walker wins. Pete.  Way low

Newmann drops out of race in May! Tom Snyder.   Way early

After the mid-term elections Nancy Pelosi will no longer be Speaker of the House. Me.   WOO HOO!  My correct prediction is the country's gain.

Jail Bird.


Yeah, they put me behind bars on Tuesday!

No new Wisconsin Labor contracts? Blame the leftosphere.

This point has not been made that I have seen...

The left is completely out of their minds over the failure of the Wisconsin Senate to ratify new labor contracts for state workers.

If the left wing blogosphere, the unions and all their left wing pals had stuck with Jeff Plale instead of throwing their weight behind a truly radical left wing primary challenger they would have likely been able to get Plale's vote and had their new contracts.

While they throw their focus on Russ Decker, I say don't forget to blame Folkbum, Capper, Zach and all their left wing blog pals for this weeks completely dysfunctional embarrassment by the Wisconsin Democrats.

Well done.

Progressive Lib Princess Pelosi gets an Economics lesson from Paul Ryan

I heard this on the radio on the Jay Weber show on the way to work this morning. Ryan's comments clearly show his total grasp of what America is about vs. Princess Pelosi and the other Progressive Libs and their belief that the working people of the country should be kissing her ring as she "allows" us to keep a little of our hard earned wages, since in her world view the government is doing us a favor by not taking all our money and then giving us back our "fair share".

Introduction

Thank you Fred for your kind invitation to be a contributor to Real Debate Wisconsin!

I plan to post at least once a week with news, analysis or at least an interesting article that I read. If anyone ever has a question about an issue in science please let me know and I'll do my best to provide more information. I am not an expert in all areas of science, however, the scientific method is the same (at least it is supposed to be the same) whether the field is biology or geology.

While most of you consider yourselves scientific laymen, I am never surprised by the insight that "laymen" often have in science. Too often I hear "well, I'm not a scientist". Really? Have you ever checked the gas mileage in your car? If so, you designed an experiment and analyzed the outcome.

Have a great week everyone!

Guess the number game.

97

UPDATE: 97, the number of people it took to decorate the White House Christmas tree

Stupid is...

Its funny that that most of the "breaking" stories I see lately is because I DVR a silly little talk/comedy show at 2 am on Fox. A show, by the way, that has higher ratings in that time slot than MSNBC does in prime time.
The latest is a topic I've touched on several times - liberals, you are NOT what al-queda and other fundamentalist islamist really like. To wit, this was the hosts (Greg Gutfeld) commentary last nite about idiots that just. Don't. Get it.

[ "So Tom Krattenmaker wrote a piece this week for USA Today, about Portland, Oregon being targeted by a Muslim terrorist. This gist: How could they bomb Portland! We're just a quirky place everyone loves!
Or at least, doesn't take seriously.

After the cliched warning to not rush to judgement, Tommy says, and I quote,

Why would Portland, of all places, be the site of a terror attack? The "People's Republic of Portland" - so dubbed for its liberal ways - seems so utterly different from New York, Mumbai, London, or the other places that one associates with terrorist attacks. Portland is so much smaller, light years from the figurative front lines.This is a laid-back city where the red-hot rhetoric around terrorism, Islam, the "ground zero mosque," and the like runs cooler.

So, because Portland's a leftwing haven with homemade fliers for guitar lessons stapled on every Peet's Coffee wall - terrorists should skip us, and focus only on the big, boring cities without all those great organic cafes. Heck, they probably don't use cloth bags or read Chomsky (stuff jihadists care about).

And since Portlanders find red meat topics like terrorism so unseemly - our enemies should totally dig us! We love Bill Moyers!

Damn, these folks are dumb. They think their behavior is at the root of other people's actions. And that, if you're nice, terrorists won't kill you.

These jacknuts don't get that no matter how liberal you are, you represent everything terrorists hate, and your touchy-feeliness only makes them hate your sogginess more. Your clogs don't help.

Trust me - terrorists have more respect for the "red-hot rhetoric" of Dick Cheney than a naval gazing goof like Tom. And closing your eyes to Islamic jihad, in favor of contemplating the dent in your consciousness is why the terrorists may come for you first.

Because you're annoying." ]

MRQ not this week.

You attention please, MRQ TRQ FBRQ is taking a week off.

Why?  I just spent an hour putting it all together and blipped it into nothingness with a couple of errant keystrokes.

I don't have it in me to recreate it any more today.

Guess the number game.

8

UPDATE:  8, the number of Feingold mentions in my reader today many of them touting him for President  .

On the fourth day of TSAmas my true love gave to me...

Fourth Amendment Wear.

Three pat downs.

Two carry ons

And a low dose of radiation.

7-4

Muslim "Tolerance" in action

Here is an example of Muslim law in action. I am curious why those like Whoopi G. get sooooo upset that they have to leave the set when Bill O'Reilly says "Muslims attacked us on 9/11", because he did not properly separate "Peaceful Muslims" from "Muslim Extremists". Which group is this that plans to execute this Christian convert in Pakistan? Are they extremists? or just "faithful Muslims"? Have we heard Whoopi say anything about this situation? Where is the outrage from the MSM or the Whitehouse. Why haven't we seen protests in the streets in the US against this religious intolerance in Pakistan? What do we do in the US? We get all upset when reasonable people say that it is not right to build a Muslim mosque close to the 9/11 site. Emperor Obama steps up and wimps out rather than stand for what he should stand for and at least try to help work out an alternative and less controversial site for the mosque. We just celebrated Thanksgiving and most took time to remember that it has roots in religious freedom and the many blessings we have as US citizens. When will our leaders WAKEUP?
