B C Movers and Shakers

Sent to me by e mail

There is no such thing as a free lunch!"

There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some Exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.
In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.
He asked, "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. "You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."
The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.
One should always remember "There is no such thing as a free lunch!" Also, "You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

Brown County Movers and Shakers

I have known since my high school days someone that is on par with being a true political leader for the Brown County area. From time to time we pass thoughts, opinion's or articles through e-mail. Even though the years have passed, they seem to be one of the most level headed people from Brown County . This person also is connected with other key people from Brown County. In years past I have not had high regard for some politicians from that area but now have come to know more good people acting with the voters best interest in mind. No, I will not divulge any names.
For the few times we do trade thoughts, e mails , jokes and or opinion's, their thoughts make more sense than most in politics today. From city, county, state, national, from the Packers to discrimination to religion, property taxes the list goes on and on, they still have logical thoughts and beliefs. They run their local government with logic. They run their local government with common sense for the benefit of the people in their area of Brown County.

Because I don't see a lot of blog sites from the Brown County area I thought I would add something to my blog. So I will now post from time to time some correspondence, notes or e mails from some of the great people of Brown County. Again, I will not divulge any names.

Most will be on the lighter side but still it should give everyone a flavor of the hard working people in politics of that area of Wisconsin. You in Brown County already know how lucky you are that you have fine people working for your better interests.

Hope you enjoy the "B C Movers and Shakers" as much as I do.

Honey, Another Cup Please

World's most expensive coffee at £50 a cup comes to British stores...and it's made from cats' droppings

It might not be to everyone's taste - and that's not just because at £50 a cup it's the most expensive coffee in the world.
The secret behind the special blend about to go on sale at an upmarket department store is that it is made from cats' droppings.

One, 23-year-old Hannah Silver, said: "I was a little apprehensive before I tried it but I actually really liked it. It was very earthy and it tastes very smooth.

Saving The Planet

Airline Mess Spreads, Angering TravelersThursday April 10, 3:45 pm ET By
Harry R. Weber, AP Business Writer

ATLANTA (AP) -- Another day and hundreds more flights grounded.

The financial toll and loss of goodwill among travelers from the debacle that spread further Thursday beyond American Airlines' massive cancellations could be severe -- on an industry already reeling from high fuel costs.

How come Algore or the other spineless environmentalist haven't been jumping up and down for joy about grounded airline flights.

Less flights , less evil oil burned , less CO2 emissions being poured into the atmosphere. They should be doing the chicken dance on every corner. Oh that's right they do the chicken dance daily anyway.

Whooped dee doo, green wienies.

GB Press MIA

To the respect of our vets, this is not about our brave troops who never came home from battle. No you can almost say it's "missing in article"

In a April 8th Green Bay Press Gazette editorial.

Where is Diamond Jim Doyles name. Isn't he a part of the problem with his creative veto's and all. Where is the "raiding of the transportation fund?" Seems like the P.G. just can't bring themselves to blame Doyle by name.

Posted April 8, 2008Editorial:
It's time to cut up state's credit card
The state of Wisconsin is learning a hard lesson that many households have faced over the years: When you max out the credit cards, there's less money available for what you need.

That's the corner our illustrious governors and legislatures have painted the state into.

Notice here how they say governors with an s. How many governors have we had since the problems in 2003? Answer one! OK, I will say it for them"Jim Doyle", See I said it. The P.G. is like a child sitting in the corner holding their breath. Stubborn little brats.

If the Green Bay Press Gazette is such a conservative newspaper like the libs say it is. Why do they still carry Doyles water. We are in this mess because toties like the P.G., the P.C. and the rest of the MSM carries water for the left. They come out and recommend Butler, he looses and then come out last week with a editorial sucking up to the right and the voters who elected Gableman. The MSM are all psycho!

We need to clean up in Madison. Judge Gableman was a start. The road to Madison goes through Milwaukee. The road to saving our state is not a credit card fairy tale. It's someone who holds the line on spending and doesn't raise taxes!

To the Green Bay Press Gazette I bestow the MIA Award.
They truly are missing in action!

New Lords Prayer / Allegiance

From an E mail

Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore Because the word 'God' is mentioned.... A kid in Arizona wrote the attached

NEW School prayer :

Now I sit me down in school Where praying is against the rule For this great nation under God Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites, It violates the Bill of Rights. And anytime my head I bow Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green, That's no offense; it's a freedom scene. The law is specific, the law is precise. Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall Might offend someone with no faith at all. In silence alone we must meditate, God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks. They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible. To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King. It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong, We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls, Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles. But the Ten Commandments are not allowed, No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess, When chaos reigns the school's a mess. So, Lord, this silent plea I make: Should I be shot; My soul please take!
