Channel 12 was under-whelmed.

* Haiti just looks to be worse than anyone could imagine.
* Obama cuts an insider deal to exempt unions from the Cadillac benefits tax. And he wasn't going to listen to special interests...
* You may have missed this one but the SE Wisconsin Regional Transit Authority has put out a trial balloon for a 21% hotel tax to fund their choo-choo. This would be the highest room tax in the region. I have an idea, why don't people who ride the train pay for it?
* Scammers are already trying to cash in on the Haiti earth quake.
* Hollywood idiot blames the earth quake on global warming.
* Massachusetts is getting interesting.
* Transparency meetings are closed.
* Tom the Taxer says anyone can do a no levy increase budget.... He's never tried it though.

So, WHY is this president mandating open-ended executive orders giving himself power to pull the strings of the military at all levels? Why has this been his goal from the get-go? And where will it lead with a regulatory czar, who is rabidly anti-gun rights, and a Homeland Security Secretary, who sees the main terrorist threat as American citizens and ex-service people?
Add it all up, and you get a president - an administration - that appears to be paving the way for a domestic military arm that could be used to subdue Americans in a police state scenario. There, I've said it. Tell me it's not a possibility. I would welcome proof it could not be true.
"When appointed, the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities."
Racine, WI – Fired up about high taxes? Come join the first ever “Bonfire Tea Party” in Racine. Not only will the bonfire be a great way to keep warm in chilly nights, but concerned taxpayers from all over Wisconsin and Illinois will be able to make sure their voices are heard by politicians.
The event will feature Joe the Plumber, Vicki McKenna and Dr. Tracey Purath. State Representative Robin Vos and Tim Dake of the Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty will announce the Healthcare Freedom Amendment to the state Constitution. The organizer of the Racine “Bonfire Tea Party,” Lora Halberstadt, says after seeing what was happening in Washington DC and Madison, she had to act.
“The Racine Tea Party movement is concerned that the burden to our next generation is already at the breaking point and is completely unsustainable!” Halberstadt said, “We owe it to our children and grandchildren to protect their freedom and make their America a better place.”

Even their Ombudsperson says it is in bad taste, but they are keeping it on their website.
Several years ago WISN 1130 AM radio talker Mark Belling was facing immense heat from using the word wetback on the air.
Belling had apologized many times but the local left was up in arms seeing a golden opportunity to try and purge Belling from the air.
One of the most outspoken voices against Belling was local Hispanic activist Robert Miranda. He was organizing protests and calling for Belling to be removed from the air.
WTMJ Radio’s Charlie Sykes was interviewing Miranda in relation to the Belling issue when Miranda used the word retard in response to a question. Sykes immediately brought it to Miranda’s attention that many people would find the use of the word retard offensive.
Miranda acquiesced immediately and apologized for his use of the word.
Then Sykes came right back saying that the difference between he and Miranda is that Sykes would accept Miranda’s apology while Miranda would not accept Bellings.
And here is what we are currently facing. The left will never forgive someone on the right for saying something racially insensitive. In fact they use it as a tool to attempt to destroy that individual.
Meanwhile the left never holds their own accountable when doing exactly the same thing.
