Pictures from the Racine TEA party

Global Warming, #1 threat to Unicorns....

Proud member of the angry mob, and she votes.





Preach it!

Perhaps we should start on Tuesday in Massachussets.

Speaking of tax torture. Russ Feingold and John Lehman were invited to speak, both declined.







There were Badger Bloggers there...

The Racine TEA Party was AMAZING.

At least 2,500 people (probably more), in the dead of winter at an outdoor rally in the middle of nowhere!

A summary of coverage:

Beer, Bicycles and the VRWC

Badger Blogger has some video.

Racine Post has a surprisingly good over-view.

Channel 12 was under-whelmed.

Channel 4 did a report on the event. They even went out and found Cory Mason to be critical of many of his constituents for the crime of gathering peacefully

Doesn't sound like he is going anywhere....

Neumann will use $1 million of own money

Madison - Former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann said he has decided to put $1 million of his personal wealth into his campaign for Wisconsin governor.

Neumann said his personal investment would ensure the campaign has enough money to be successful.

Neumann is running for the Republican nomination against Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is running as a Democrat.

Neumann is a businessman and philanthropist who served in Congress from 1994 to '98.

Awwwwwwwww

Too cute.

What's going on?

I've been AFK at a Conference for a couple of days. So much is going on.

* 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.

Obama Orders Pave the Way - for What?

Obama promised to create a civilian military force from day one, and he is working to keep that promise, piece by piece. Maybe you have seen his latest executive order establishing a new "Council of Governors" designated to advise on the "synchronization and integration of state and federal military activities in the United States." But as this article states, there already are means in place to communicate with and work in conjunction with the states in national emergencies, making the new order redundant and mysterious.

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."

While the left is up in arms about Fox News hiring Sarah Palin.

You probably did not hear about this bit of hatred from "unbiased" NPR.

Even their Ombudsperson says it is in bad taste, but they are keeping it on their website.

Double Standards.

In the wake of this weekend’s news of racist comments issued by Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid, it reminds me of my favorite all time moment in local talk radio.

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.

Does anyone still wonder why MPS stinks?

They can't even get their homework in on time.

Seriously

What is wrong with this idiot?
