Russia: US Satellite Shot a Weapons Test

US Satellite Shot a Weapons Test
Feb 16 05:45 PM US/Eastern
Russia said Saturday that U.S. military plans to shoot down a damaged spy satellite may be a veiled test of America's missile defense system.

The Pentagon failed to provide "enough arguments" to back its plan to smash the satellite next week with a missile, Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement.

"There is an impression that the United States is trying to use the accident with its satellite to test its national anti-missile defense system's capability to destroy other countries' satellites," the ministry said.

If it works it sure would put a scare into the ruskies!

I'm game, go for it.

U S superiority!!!!

The Left and Right

I just want to let everyone know I spent this morning with my mother in the emergency room for three hours. Thanks for asking, she's O K, just gave her family a scare. It's always a trip to be around some of my family.
Some comments being with the left for half the day!.

Almost all in my family is on the left! That in itself is a hard pill to swallow (get it,Monica, swallow).

My sweet mother comments,"did you know that the United States has the worst health care in the world! Say what?
"The rest of the world is more advanced in medicine than the United States!" Holy Cow Batman, I would never have known that going to that hospital this morning, You fooled me!

Ann Coulter is a BITCH, WITCH, I'm not sure which one she said but my mother doesn't like Ann! You think she's a fan of Condi? Naaaa, don't think so.

Your buddy is in Time Magizine, (Rush). O K, your right he is my buddy.

My mother and sister are both voting for Hillary. We'll leave their reasons to another post some day.

Bottom line, being with the left is just too much to take. I always wonder why does the left think what they think and say what they say. It's always the same, dribble, crap , dribble.

Spending time with the left can drive a person to's Miller Time!

I still feel dirty!

Tuesday Wis. Upcoming Election

I just was going through the numbers on last Tuesdays Potomic Primary elections. Here's the numbers.
Maryland Dem total votes 777,675
..................Rep Total votes 292,217
Virgina Dem vote total 980,382
.................Rep vote total 487,854
Wash D C Dem vote totals 113,746
.......................Rep vote totals , 5801.
For God's sake, we have a republican President and we can only get 5801 votes? What the heck?
Total three states Dem 1,871,803
....................................Rep 785,872
Can someone help me on this?
There were 1,085,931 more democratic votes then republicans.

Why is that? This was only in three states. What is going to happen in November? What chance in heck would a right-winger ever have? The answer is if we had a true conservative it would be a world of difference! Conservatism whenever it is tried always wins!

Is this cross over votes? If it was, why did we not hear about it? Is this the right not voting? If it is, what happened, why did the MSM not report that? If the”right" base doesn't show up, does it really matter? I am not trying to start anything but, why is there such disparity on vote totals?

Look at the numbers and tell me what the heck is going on?

I'm just a simple guy from Gillett! Even if Johnny Mac can get some of the moderate and left vote, why is it not showing up in the primaries? In other primaries why were the exit polls wrong? Were people lying to the exit poll people? Was the voting a part of voter fraud?

I am asking these questions because I am conservative first and party second. Can the people who know, know better than I, and who should give me my marching orders set me straight. It's getting a little fuzzy. What will happen on tuesday in Wisconsin?

What Is All This Cr_ p

As I was looking up our fine library cash grab I went to the guts of the bill.

This one bill has 352 amendments, HOLY COW Cape Crusader!

In the hundreds of the 352 amendments it only says,

Purpose will be available when the amendment is proposed for
consideration. See Congressional Record for text.

This is what I would guess are earmarks slid into the bill in the dead of night! I'm not sure, but it will give me someting to look into.

If they are wasteful earmarks,

We need to take our Country back!

As Charlie says , "What a bunch of crappy, crap, crap!"

Link to earmarks. Amendments For H.R.2419

Library Earmarks in Farm Bill

Received this news alert for all libraries to take action, from the
Americans for Library Association Washington office. Wow, didn't know they had a ASS.

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED: Ask Farm Bill Conferees to Keep Libraries in Rural Telecommunications Section of H.R. 2419
Link to alert

This is in the farm bill, what is this? A farm bill is for FARMERS not LIBRARIES!

Farm, Nutrition, and Bioenergy Act of 2007 H.R. 2419), Section 6302, to include “libraries” in the rural telecommunications program:
Background Amendments in the Senate version of the Farm, Nutrition, and Bioenergy Act of 2007 (H.R. 2419) add libraries serving rural communities into Section 6302: Telemedicine, Library Connectivity, and Distance Learning Services in Rural Areas. This amendment acknowledges and would support the important role
that public libraries play in providing rural areas access to broadband services, leveling the playing field for rural residents. It also promotes partnerships with other participants in this existing program - such as community colleges and K-12 schools.

This amendment acknowledges and would support the important role that public libraries play in providing rural areas access to broadband services, leveling the playing field for rural residents.

First, I know alot of farmers and they all have computer access, what the heck is someone trying to load into this bill? Are we now going to give rural america free broad band networking? How many farmers go to the libraries any more? We used to having hitching posts for horses. Now we will have to have larger parking spaces for giant tractors. We have three libraries with in 10 miles of us and that is two two many. What the heck are our taxes paying for?

Oh I see, looky here it says;

a) In General- Chapter 1 of subtitle D of title XXII of the Food,
Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 950aaa et seq.)is amended in the chapter heading by striking `AND DISTANCE LEARNING' and inserting `, LIBRARY CONNECTIVITY, PUBLIC TELEVISION,AND DISTANCE LEARNING'.

The old Public television money grab through the back door amendment earmark trick!

And I like this one;

i) in the matter preceding subparagraph (A), by striking `financial
assistance' and inserting `assistance in the form of grants';

The old slight of hand trick , oh my, it's now assistance in the form of grants.

And who is getting some of this money, ah shucks it's the;

`(C) libraries or library support organizations;
`(D) public television stations and the parent organizations of public television stations;
Wow , talk about our bloated budget. See what AFP Wisconsin is doing to me, I never looked at bills before!

Well please contact your representitive and tell them NO
to H.R. 2419), Section 6302.

Americans For Prosperity

Saturday I attended the AFP "Americans For Prosperity" Summit in Waukesha.

If you don't know about AFP you will soon.

Just wanted to make some comments about attending my first conservative event. Yes it took me 50 years to finally get involved in politics. The order of my comments is the way I seen and wrote about my day. It was one GREAT day. If I leave anyone out I apologize. The 400 plus people there was just too good to be true. An old dog from Gillett hanging with some of the GREATEST minds of our time and from our GREAT state of Wisconsin. I couldn't of felt more at home than with all those great people, all with great conservative ideas and values.

These are only random thoughts; don't get in a tizzy over this!
Oh Well, enough of my rambling, Let's go!
But I do have to say, IT WAS AWSOME!

Opening Ray Charles, Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem. Short clip Of Ronald Reagan. Brought a lump in the throat to hear his voice and to see my hero on the big screen. Really moving. How can anyone say Reagan Revolution is over. Hog Wash!

Mark Block - What an honor to have him work so hard for the people of Wisconsin through AFP. Need to follow through and build membership. It's worth it! "Keep us growing Mark!"

Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity - What a job he and his group has done. It's a grass roots effort. We need to grow! If you hate earmarks, AFP is the place!

James Klauser - I guess Tommy Thompson’s right hand man in years gone by. Introduces,

J.B. Van Hollen - Kept thinking of Mark Belling saying, empty suit, empty suit, empty suit!

Steve Moore Wall Street Journal editor. Kept thinking of Rush saying the Wall Street Journal is for Illegal immigration!

Mike Gableman - Yea, we need to get him elected. Send campaign money. Not much, but every little bit helps

Steve Lonegan - It goes to show what you can do after people tell you can't. Great guy. Hope he keeps pressure on Jon Corzine! Steve, get him replaced.

David Clark - I will vote for him when I get the chance. Even being a dem. What a GREAT guy. Dem in name only. Hey we have RINO's and DINO's. We need more David Clark's! Want's to pass Pay Check Protection Act.

Dan Schnur - Too much focus on the November election. Wasn't sure if he was going to tell me to vote for Johnny Mac! He did not use Mc Cains name but came awfully close! Not my cup of tea.

Dinesh D'Souza - What a great conservative. Talked about Renaldus Magnus. Ronald Reagan did what he believed. I don't understand all those east coast republicans. We cannot let go of our beliefs. We need to start another party. Sorry let me get back on track. I get too emotional thinking about Ronald Reagan. Great speaker. Buy his book.

Paul Ryan 1st District of Wisconsin - Received Ronald Reagan Award from AFP. Crowd yelled out Paul Ryan for Governor, Paul Ryan for VP. I could vote anytime for Paul Ryan. He is standing up for the people of his district. Federal taxes for our children will go from 18% now to 40% in 20 years! That’s .40 on every dollar. That’s not even state or local taxes.

Scott Walker - Can't wait till he runs for Gov. We need conservative Wisconsin assembly and senate when he's gov. Wow, can't wait. Send him campaign cash. Even a little bit will help. No I can't afford it but even a couple bucks means something!

Leah Vukmir - Wow, she needs to be Gov and when she is, Leah will be one of our greatest politicians of Wisconsin. I bet she tells it like it is in Madison. I wish I could be a fly on the wall. She seems like she could p_ _ _ those libs off. Leah, go for it, we're with you! Send any money for campaign.

Vicki McKenna - We need more people like Vicki. WISN, you made the right move bringing her to Milwaukee. Vicky, you need to go statewide.

A couple of side comments. The theme was non-partisan; the theme was Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan. How can McCain even be brought up in the same sentence with Ronald Reagan. Less government not more. Less taxes not more, Let the people of this great country enjoy prosperity. It's the American Dream.

Afternoon breakout meeting

First, New Media vs Old Media. Was walking in and introduced myself to Jo Egelhoff. Wow, what an honor and pleasure to meet one of the heavy hitters of the Wisconsin blogs. What a great and knowledgeable person. Ran part of the breakout.

Seen Patrick McIlheran from the Journal Sentinel. Good guy, Does great work. Wondered after seeing him live if that was his brother on his home blog page? I should e mail and ask him.

Leslie Graves - gave some good points on starting a blog.

Kyle Duerstien - UWM -Great ideas on what you can do with a blog. Sorry Kyle , I don't have that much time. You sure do GREAT work!

Second Breakout- "the AFP Voice, how to make yours heard. Mark Block opened meeting - again great guy, need to grow AFP numbers.

Brian Schimming - director of Madison news talk station. I think WIBC. Mark Honadel (state Rep) Dan Vrakas (Waukeha County Ex) Ted Kanauas ( State Senater)

Need to call talk radio, need to keep in touch with all your elected officials. No matter good or bad, contact them.

Waiting for supper, a diet 7 up and introduced myself to Owen Robinson of Boots and Sabers .One of our Icons on the Wisconsin Blogs. Owen and Jed have done so much for a lot of bloggers in the state. Oh yes, there are a lot of GREAT blogs out there. I wish I could meet all you out there on the cheddar sphere. Not enough time. Asked him why he doesn't run for office, I said he'd be GREAT. He said he didn't want to take a pay cut. Yea I guess so but Owen sure is a straight shooter. I may not agree all the time (Cowboys) but have a lot of respect. Great guy.

Looked out the window, snow flying like mad and decided to get on the road, wished I would of stayed for the end. Jim Sensenbrenner would have been worth the wait. As it was, it was hell driving home, glad I left. Maybe someday I can attend a Drinking Right party. Not sure if I can get an invitation.

What a GREAT DAY. I'm just sorry I didn't bring the whole family.
