Bureaucrat of the day.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.

It was nice of him to finally pay off his debt.

Taxes have consequences?

Who knew?

Bob Wirch, liar.

A very strong statement by Uline denies a claim made by Bob Wirch.

So Wirch led Uline to Kenosha but I am sure he had nothing to do with Chrysler leaving Kenosha.

Sandy Pasch, liar, criminal.

Media Trackers is all over this.

The only problem is, as usual, the left doesn't care about how their candidates win only that they do win.

The media might get around to covering this seriously..... late next week.

Why is the Racine school district trying to suppress the attendance of the poor, elderly and minority groups?

I demand attention from Eugene Kane and Wisconsin Democrat Party!

How is that change working out for you?

From email today...


After two years of Obama... Here's your change!
THE PRESIDENCY
SOME WILL APPRECIATE THIS AND SOME WILL NOT.
HOWEVER, ALL OF IT IS TRUE.

Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.  Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.  27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH! Sources: (1) U.S. Energy Information Administration; (2) Wall Street Journal ; (3) Bureau of Labor Statistics ; (4) Census Bureau; (5) USDA; (6) U.S. Dept.

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?  Can't think of anything?  Don't worry.  He's done all this in 24 months - so you'll have one year and ten months to come up with an answer. 

Bureaucrats of the day

The Racine City Council (excluding Bob Mozol and Keith Fair)

Question: If a citizen had underpaid their taxes for years would the city only look to collect for the most recent year?

Answer:  Obviously not.

August 1, 2011

Why government is broke.

Racine spent $510,000 to buy and rehab a property they sold for $111,000.

They did this in an attempt to become Paducah, Kentucky.  Paducah revitalized their city by appealing to artists which Racine tried to copy.

This artistic endeavor?  A Chinese restaurant.

Is there any wonder my taxes go up every year?

Go ahead, try.

Ribs for votes?

The left doesn't give a damn about fair and legal elections.  They prove it time and time again.

MRQ, yeah this is all I've got this week....

Push this button to hear a message from The President.

Happy Birthday.

I was going to put together a pictogram like Fred usually does, but today is *his* birthday, so I'm guessing he would get it right away. We cant have him just winning like that.
I did, however, find a photo that summed everything up:











Happy Birthday, Fred.
