A rare moment...

A rare moment of scientific honesty....

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".

Grocery prices are soaring...

But there is no inflation and no COLA adjustments for social security.

How cool is this?

I'm sure all this was all due to government intervention....

My Profound Thanks.

In two short hours I report to MDA jail for Jerry's Kids.

I am humbled to report that through this effort we received 58 individual donations totaling $2,770.  That's enough money to fund 3 & 1/2 summer camp scholarships.

You helped make a difference, I thank you for that.

Hey brother, can you spare $430?

ONE DAY LEFT!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I know, I bet you are all sick and tired of me begging for money for Jerry's Kids. 

We are just $135 short of fully funding a third kid to MDA summer camp.  In four short days I report to jail and I'd love to be able to fork over enough bail to send 3 kids to camp.  (Do I hear four?)

Can you help?????  If so please click this link and give a little joy to a kid that has struggles that most of us could not imagine!

UPDATE:  Hey brother can you spare $615 $585 $555 $525 $430?  We smashed that $135 and are well on our way to sending a fourth kid to camp!  You guys & gals rock!

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!
