Ronald Wilson Reagan

Thursday was the anniversary of the death of our 40 th President, Ronald Wilson Reagan
"Ronald Reagan

At the end of his two terms in office, Ronald Reagan viewed with satisfaction the achievements of his innovative program known as the Reagan Revolution, which aimed to reinvigorate the American people and reduce their reliance upon Government. He felt he had fulfilled his campaign pledge of 1980 to restore "the great, confident roar of American progress and growth and optimism."

On February 6, 1911, Ronald Wilson Reagan was born to Nelle and John Reagan in Tampico, Illinois. He attended high school in nearby Dixon and then worked his way through Eureka College. There, he studied economics and sociology, played on the football team, and acted in school plays. Upon graduation, he became a radio sports announcer. A screen test in 1937 won him a contract in Hollywood. During the next two decades he appeared in 53 films." Biography of Ronald Reagan

Our oldest son was in Washington D C back in 2004 on a band trip at the time of Mr. Reagan's funeral. I know everyone has a time and purpose in life. I think through hard work my son will accomplish a lot in his life. Him seeing Ronald Wilson Reagan's funeral procession down the streets of D C will go far in his life. I was very proud my son had the chance of being so close to a great man at Mr. Reagan's last trip in Washington DC.

Long live the conservative movement.

We will never forget Ronald Wilson Reagan

With Oil Prices At $138

The part to look for is around 2 min 28 secs.. There is the F bomb dropped so you were warned. Yea it was only a movie but Higgens makes a good point.

In the film Redford thinks we should ask people. We been asking libs for how many years and what has it done for us? Will Obama take charge or will he ask people? Will McCain take charge or will he ask people. If a conservative were in charge we never would of got to this point.

For all you people that voted for the liberal dems and RINO's you got what you asked for. The question is how much more will you take? How much more will you pay ?

The time is now for some conservative to stand up and take charge.

Who will it be? The time is now for a real American to come forward.

DRILL Here, DRILL Now, Pay Less

"Oil rises more than $10 to new record high" Oil rises more than $10 to new record high
Jun 6 02:27 PM US/EasternNEW YORK (AP) - Oil prices have shot up more than $10 to a new record above $138 a barrel after a Morgan Stanley analyst predicted prices could hit $150 by the Fourth of July. Traders were also rattled by rising tensions in the Middle East.

The meteoric surge builds on a huge jump on Thursday and sets the stage for the biggest two-day gain in the history of the New York Mercantile Exchange. A further weakening of the dollar helped keep prices high.

Light, sweet crude for July delivery jumped as high as $138.36 on the Nymex, then eased to $137.81, up $10.02.

"Dear Paul ,

Our "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" campaign continues to gain momentum. Yesterday, American Solutions delivered the first round of signatures - 350,000 - to the U.S. Senate urging them to take immediate action to lower gas prices by drilling for oil domestically.

We delivered the signatures to the offices of Senators Alexander, Clinton, Durbin, Ensign, Kyl, McCain, McConnell, Obama, Reid and Schumer urging them to offer real solutions to our energy challenges, beginning with using more of our domestic energy resources.

But this is only the beginning. It's our goal to have 3 million signatures by both parties' national conventions this fall. Help us reach our goal by forwarding this email to 10 friends and encouraging them to sign the petition.

Watch this video of the first batch of signatures being delivered:

New Research on Domestic Energy Resources

We released new research data this week on domestic energy resources. The data clearly confirms the overwhelming response we've received via emails, letters, and phone calls during our "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" campaign: the American people believe it's commonsense to work here at home to solve America's energy challenges.

In fact, 81% of the American people support the U.S. using more of its own domestic energy resources, including the oil and coal already here, to combat the rising cost of energy and reduce dependence on foreign energy sources.

As the chart below suggests, the agreement is widespread regardless of political affiliation."

Drill here,drill now, buck up people, let's DRILL!

New Blog

Isn't this a nice picture of Mr Kagen! I know I'm late on this but we welcome a new blog site.

Oh Boy

A dem e mail a person sent me. Who will be president and who will be vice president?
I'm not sure.

"It's all over the news: Hillary Clinton will formally endorse Barack Obama on Friday and the campaign for the White House will begin.

This has been an amazing campaign. For the first time in American history, the leading candidates of the nation's largest party included a woman, an Hispanic, and an African-American. As Democrats, we fully understood the deep prejudices against each, but we smashed those prejudices so we could find the very best candidate to lead our great Nation.

Incredibly, we may have realized Dr. Martin Luther King's once-impossible dream for his children: to "one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

So now the campaign to take back the White House begins. And we will have to work from now until November to persuade the rest of America to join us in voting for change, however difficult that vote will be.

Let's start today. Please join me in reaching out to 10 friends and relatives who want to end the disastrous Bush-Cheney-McCain era and start a new Democratic era to create good jobs, achieve energy independence, protect our planet, provide health care to all, end illegal torture and wiretapping, and bring our troops safely home.

If we come together as Democrats, progressives, independents, and thoughtful Republicans, we can win a sweeping victory in November and create a better future for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

This is the most important election of our lives. Please join me today.

Why does it take Hillary so long to concede?

Do You remember When.........

No Call List

"No-call registry expands to cells
Starting today, consumers can add mobile numbers to list
Posted: June 5, 2008

Madison - Starting today, cell phone users for the first time will be able to add their numbers to the state's popular do-not-call list." JS Online: No-call registry expands to cells

"This is in response to consumers' concerns about telemarketing over their cell phones," said Jim Rabbit, director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection at the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. "Cell phone minutes cost money, unlike your hard line minutes."

The addition of cell phone numbers to the no-call list was part of the budget repair bill signed last month by Gov. Jim Doyle. Residents have until the end of August to be added to the list, and a new list will be provided to telemarketing companies in October.

This is from my May 1st blog post.

From Mark Block from April 20th.
I still didn't do it! I always like to procrastinate.

REMINDER….12 days from today ( do by Friday) , all cell phone numbers are beingreleased to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive salescalls.……YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLSTo prevent this , call the following number from your cellphone:

It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time.It blocks yo ur number for five (5) years.You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked.You cannot call from a different phone number.

How many people commented to me including my son that we didn't have to do this! Shows how ignorant the public can be, or is it because a conservative gives people advice, they cannot believe them. IDIOTS. Now the state is getting a soft fuzzy. Thank God we have people like Mark Block at AFP. Mark, what would we do without you.

Dems, Clean as The Wind Driven Snow.

Stabenow's husband caught in Troy prostitution sting, police report says
Jennifer Chambers / The Detroit News

TROY -- The co-founder and former CEO of the liberal-progressive Democracy Radio and husband of U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow was caught in February by a Troy police sting aimed at catching prostitutes, according to a police report.

Thomas L. Athans was stopped Feb. 26 by undercover officers investigating a possible prostitution ring in a room at the Residence Inn near Big Beaver and Interstate 75. Athans paid a 20-year-old prostitute $150 for sex in a Troy hotel but was not arrested, according to police reports obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by The Detroit News. The police report said officers observed Athans enter a room under surveillance and leave 15 minutes later. Detectives followed and stopped Athans' silver 2002 Cadillac DeVille on Interstate 75 near Square Lake Road.

Athans told police he stopped at the hotel to see a female friend he met online. After calling her on his cell phone, he was given a room number and met the woman at the door. Once inside he placed $150 on a counter top. The woman collected the money and performed oral sex on him, Athans told police.

Spitzer , Athans, what are these people doing.

Just have to wonder for the people in Michigan. Bad economy, higher gasoline prices, state wants to pass a energy bill which sounds like another big tax increase and then the govs hubby can't behave. I sure haven't heard much in the national press on this. If this was a republican, it would of been atomic.
Oh, it's no big deal, the poor guy is just lonely.

I'm Back.

No moose Sighting.
Sorry folks for the lack of blogging. Did my Upper Michigan run for work and a meeting in Milwaukee on Thursday. Like in the movie Independence Day, I'm Back. Did I miss anything? From memory on what I heard on the road.

Monday - Run up to Tuesday election- no big deal. Long drive to the Soo.

Tuesday - Big dem election, still no big deal. Janesville losses GM plant. McCain speech, he wants independent and dem votes? What about the conservative vote? Hillary, gracious but not conceding, what chaos. Obama speech, sounds like hope, he cares , no substance.Inventor of Pringles chip can, RIP , buried in the can.

Wednesday- Obama Dem candidate, Gee, I didn't hear that. Michigan governors spouse witness to hanky panky investigation, more on that later.

Thursday- Milwaukee meeting, new launch coming, it's GREAT. 1250 miles, Finally home, oh, off to sons high school baseball banquet.

Seems like a boring week to me.

Just want to thank all my customers in Upper Michigan. What a pleasure working with such good people. Maybe I will see bullwinkle on my next trip.

Weather Icon

RIP Mr Nelson.

First TV weatherman in Green Bay dies at 82
WBAY's Nelson also hosted shows
By Jeff Ash • • June 1, 2008

Bobby Nelson, who in 1953 became the Green Bay area's first TV weatherman and long was one of the area's most beloved broadcasters, died Friday night from complications of a stroke. He was 82.

Nelson started with WBAY radio in 1949, announcing and writing copy. He also hosted a noon show until 1953, when he was recruited to work in a new medium.

Nelson did the weather on WBAY-TV's first live broadcast in 1953.

"The first night we went on the air, the paint was still wet," he told the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Warren Gerds in 1973.

As "Bunkhouse Bob," Nelson also hosted a variety show that aired live at 9:30 p.m.

"When I finished the 9:30 p.m. show, I'd tear off the set, call up the weather bureau, get all the latest information and put it on the board in time to get it out there (for the news block at 10:15 p.m.)," Nelson said in 1973.

Thanks Mr Nelson.
