[Excerpt:] - A 21-year-old Summerside man landed in the hospital early Wednesday morning after he fell out of a moving vehicle. RCMP said the man was a passenger in a van coming home from a beach party in Chelton, between Summerside and Borden. Police said he opened the van door to throw away a beer bottle and fell onto the road.

I thought this only happens in Wisconsin. Where's the recycling police, he going to get nailed for littering!

"Departing school chief to receive $153,552
Green Bay district to pay Nerad under emeritus program

By Kelly McBride • • June 28, 2008 "

Departing school chief to receive $153,552 | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

Outgoing Green Bay Superintendent Daniel Nerad will receive more than $150,000 in retirement pay during the next five years, even as he starts his new job as head of the Madison School District.

The money is part of the district's emeritus program, a benefit formula that provides money — but not insurance — for certain departing administrators.

"It's in the (administrator) benefit package," said John Wilson, the district's assistant superintendent for human resources, "and it is based upon your age and years of service with the district."

So is this guy retiring? No, job in Madison!

Is he getting $153,552.00 in retirement money, sorry it's a benefit package ? Yes, he is !

So is this guy retiring? No!

Is he getting retirement money, sorry I keep forgetting it's a benefit package ? Yes!

What a sweet deal.

And you wonder why taxes keep going up.

I can see most people in Green Bay grabbing their ankles and kissing their butts, Money GOOD BYE! Poor saps!

Don't you wish the rest of us could do this.

My Fourth Love

Back in the mid 90's I had the chance to buy this beauty. Since the Supreme court decision this past week it made me remember my fourth love in my life. I sold it to buy a cottage at Berry Lake. It was one of a lot of mistakes I have made in my life. I don't even know if I have the correct picture above. What I had at one time was one of a kind.

Action Type: Traditional swing-out-cylinder double-action large-frame revolver with frame-mounted firing pin
Caliber: .357 Magnum/.38 Spl.
Barrel Length: 5 inches
Frame: N-frame, stainless steel
Overall Length: 9 1/2 inches
Weight: Empty, 44 ounces
Hammer: 1/2-inch wide, polished and chromed
Capacity: 8 rounds
Sights: Interchangeable front sight, Patridge front sight, with McGivern gold bead, fully adjustable rear sight
Trigger: .312-inch wide target trigger, chromed
Grips: Hogue rubber
Safeties: Frame-mounted firing-mechanism lock
Other Features: Chamfered charge holes on cylinder, ball-detend lockup, adjustable trigger stop, tapered and contoured barrel, Performance Center locking aluminum guncase.

To hold the black rubber grip was better then holding my wife, (sometimes, no, not all the time).At the shooting range I have to admit it was almost better then sex, I said almost! From the moment I seen this beauty, it was love at first site. Just wanted to say it broke my heart to sell it.

To any gun experts that knows where I might be able to pick one up, let me know. Looking for one McGivern gold bead 357 Magnum with black rubber handle.

I can't take it. I'm not a lib but I could, I said could but will not cry thinking of what I gave up.

My first love, my God.
My second love, my wife,
My third love, my family.
My fourth love,

The McGivern gold bead 357 Magnum

that's just great..

E mail from a friend. Joke of the day.
Subject: The Nurse

A very tired nurse walks into a bank,
Totally exhausted after an 18-hour shift.
Preparing to write a check,
She pulls a rectal thermometer out of her purse
And tries to write with it.

When she realizes her mistake,
She looks at the flabbergasted teller
And without missing a beat, she says:………

'Well, that's great....that's just great....
Some asshole's got my pen!'

Lefty tin hat kooks, smile, it's a joke!

"North Korea destroys nuclear reactor tower
Jun 27 01:15 PM US/Eastern" North Korea destroys nuclear reactor tower

ONGBYON, North Korea (AP) - The gray cooling tower crumbled behind billowing dust clouds in seconds Friday, reducing the structure at North Korea's nuclear reactor into a pile of rubble. It was a choreographed show by the communist regime meant to affirm an intention to stop making atomic bombs.

From a distance, smiling diplomats from the United States and other nations snapped photos of the blast that destroyed part of the heart of the North's nuclear weapons program.

"As you all saw, the cooling tower is no longer there," said Sung Kim, the U.S. State Department's top expert on the Koreas who attended the demolition. "This is a very important step in the disablement process, and I think it puts us in a good position to move into the next phase."

See what that evil Bush did. North Korea destroyed one of it's reactors.

You left kooks with tin hats are,

mad as hell that it wasn't reactors in the U S that weren't destroyed!

Herb Kohl A Conservative ?

"Bucks trade former No. 1 pick Yi

Press-Gazette • June 26, 2008 " Bucks trade former No. 1 pick Yi | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

The Milwaukee Bucks traded forwards Bob

by Simmons and Yi Jianlian for New Jersey Nets forward Richard Jefferson, General Manager John Hammond announced today.

Can anyone tell me how Herb Kohl can make such decisions for his basketball team that he owns and do nothing for the voters of Wisconsin? Would do nothing Herb not have made the trade today? Does do nothing Herb not make decisions for his team? You dam right he knows everything that goes on with the Bucks!

If Herb Kohl owned land in ANWR would he just sit back and do nothing?

How can he make decisions for the Milwaukee Bucks and leave the people of Wisconsin hanging out wondering where they will find money for higher gasoline prices.

Mr. Kohl, what is more important, the Milwaukee Bucks or the people of Wisconsin?

Typical liberal, he cares about only his money and not yours!

Rights To Bear Arms - Do You Support The Rights To Arms? Vote Yes or No In A 5-Second Poll

Hugh Downs Reports - Little known heart attack symptom many people tragically ignore.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Silent on central questions of gun control for two centuries, the Supreme Court found its voice Thursday in a decision affirming the right to have guns for self-defense in the home and addressing a constitutional riddle almost as old as the republic over what it means to say the people may keep and bear arms.

The court's 5-4 ruling struck down the District of Columbia's ban on handguns and imperiled similar prohibitions in other cities, Chicago and San Francisco among them. Federal gun restrictions, however, were expected to remain largely intact.

The court's historic awakening on the meaning of the Second Amendment brought a curiously mixed response, muted in some unexpected places." My Way News - High court affirms gun rights in historic decision

They Are Taking It Back

From Bloomberg
"Texas Real Estate Slump Lets Mexicans Take It Back (Update1)

By Thomas Black" News
June 25 (Bloomberg) -- More than a century and a half after Mexico lost Texas to the U.S., Virgilio Garza wants a piece of it back.

A ``Texas for Sale'' sign and cowgirls in boots and white hats greeted Garza at the Convex center in Monterrey, Mexico, earlier this month. A Monterrey developer and investor, Garza was in search of foreclosed U.S. property to buy.

``Texas is like our home,'' said Garza, 45, who joined hundreds of Mexicans poring over lists of Texas properties at the four-day event. Garza, who owns manufacturing sites and other land in Mexico, said he and five partners may invest as much as $8 million in Texas. ``We believe there can be some opportunities.''
`Great Time to Buy'

``Many of these people have children who are studying in the U.S.,'' Ramirez said. ``They've been renting or leasing and now it's a great time to buy.''

So their children (could be non citizens) are in our schools that we are paying for and they should come to our country and buy cheep homes!

I'm a Conservitive First

From Rush's show today. I do not know if I will get in trouble for posting the following but as a conservative I have to repeat what Dawn from Indy said. First the set up and then Dawn.
And one other thing? I'm addressing this because Tony might have articulated -- well, in fact, I know he did because I've had similar calls in the recent past from people who have also said, "Take it easy on McCain." And I've even had people out in public when I have not been on the air, "Can you kind of take it easy on McCain?" Why should I have to change? No, I'm serious. Why should I have to change? Why should I have to sweep my principles aside or under the desk, why is that up to me to do that? I know you don't like it when I say "you people." You know who you are. You should have thought about all this when you're out there voting for Huckabee. You should have thought about all this when you saw McCain and Huckabee teaming up to screw all the other nominees in our party.

You're calling me telling me I gotta bite the bullet. Why don't you call McCain's office and tell him to drop this environmental BS instead of demanding that I drop my principles? It's probably easier getting through to the McCain office than it is getting through to me. It will take you a lot less time getting through to them than to me. But seriously, why should I change? I know what you're saying. I have empathy. "Rush, you don't have to change, but you don't have to destroy the guy's chances." We're doing just the opposite here, folks. You think I want Obama elected? Get real. We can't afford this guy. I don't care how you calculate how you afford something. We can't afford our liberty; we can't afford economically; we cannot afford this guy. We cannot afford this guy with the massive majorities he's going to have in the House and the Senate, in any number of ways. But at the same time, it's not just McCain on the ballot. There's a whole bunch of Republicans and conservatives out there who look to get swamped right now unless something's done, and they are Republicans, and do you see any coattails here?

CALLER: Well, what guarantees do I have that McCain is going to do any better than Obama?

RUSH: You don't have guarantees about anything, but common sense here should tell you that Obama--

CALLER: It's going to be bad, I agree.

RUSH: It's disaster. It is going to be a literal disaster.

CALLER: So Obama's fast disaster and McCain is slow disaster?

RUSH: Well (laughing), no. I've not reached this fatalistic point that you have seemed to have arrived at here, Dawn. I'm not there yet. It's not over. Even after the election, nothing's ever over! There is no end. Nothing ever ends. We just think it does. We want it to end, so we say, "Okay, this is over," but it's not over. These kind of things are never over.


RUSH: Even when you lose you still have a chance of turning it around and win. Loss is not final. Defeat is never the end.

CALLER: Except it seems to me we got a lose-lose situation. (laughing)

RUSH: We gotta lose-lose situation?

CALLER: Either candidate, we lose.

RUSH: (laughing) I know. I know. I know.

How many republicans remember November of 92 when Bill Clinton won the election. I remember the place, the time and what I said when they called the race for Clinton. I thought it was one of the worst days in my life for politics.Bush 1 was not conservative "read my lips", where did that get us? How will I vote in November? As Rush said " Even when you lose you still have a chance of turning it around and win."

I am a conservative first, What do you think?

How many of you will bite the bullet? How much more will get shoved down Americans throats before they wake up?

911/ Midwest

"Nearly seven years later, Earwood still thinks about what happened every time he flies to LaGuardia.

"It's something that will live with me for the rest of my life," he said. "I just can't imagine the horror of being on that (United 175) airplane. . . . I think about those people a lot."

One thing he's never considered is to stop flying. He started flying as a 17-year-old in 1979.

"I was not going to let them scare me out of my life," Earwood said. " JS Online: Book details Midwest flight that nearly collided with 9/11 jet

Read the above link.

Makes you wonder what people think about 911 today.
You have to wonder what these pilots went through on 911. To the Midwest pilots that day, we are proud of you.

I put a challenge to all. How will BHO and JM pay their respects to 911 this September. Grandstanding, ground zero, how will their staffs set them up for a photo op of the people that died on 911?

To the people that died on 911, conservatives will never forget you!

Japan In Shawano

Congrats to all the people of Komatsa. From Gary Tauchen and Wis Business

"Komatsu Forest Ships 3000th Tree Feller/Harvester

Shawano, WI. - Komatsu Forest LLC, headquartered in Shawano, Wisconsin, recently announced plans to ship their 3000th Valmet Tree Feller/Harvester machine. This marks a significant milestone for Komatsu Forest, a leading manufacturer and distributor of heavy tree harvesting and loading equipment throughout the world.

According to Nate Burton, General Manager of Marketing, Komatsu Forest has well known and respected brand names and many international customers. “For over 20 years, we have manufactured and distributed our products under the Timbco and Valmet brands from the manufacturing facility in Shawano, WI.,” said Burton. “Although this particular unit is destined for Australia we have many customers in Chile, Brazil, South Africa, the UK, Russia, Canada, and of course the US,” Burton added.

The company was founded in 1979 and purchased by Komatsu Ltd of Japan in 2003. Komatsu is the 2nd largest construction equipment manufacturer in the world, behind Caterpillar. Other Komatsu Forest machines are produced at the company's world headquarters in Umea, Sweden and are distributed in North America through the Shawano facility." wisbusiness
Komatsa. Sounds like a nice Polish name to me. Maybe a German name? Maybe Native American since we are so close to Menomenee County? Oh I'm sorry, it is owned by a company from Japan. Huh, small world.

The point is the dems cry wolf on foreign ownership and the union thugs scream bloody murder and here a company owned by someone in Japan owns a company in Shawano Wis. and it's successful! Who would of thought! Where is Russel and Herbie crying foul on foreign ownership? Where is Steveeeee Kagen on this foreign takeover?

The left uses foreign ownership as a ploy to get sympathy from the voters and more money from the union, poor saps. I bet the employee's are making good money and are happy! Take that union folks!

Psst, I won't tell my family and friends about a Japan company in Shawano! PSSST, quite!

Where is our next gov Baba Lawton on this, maybe she can call them scabs, Huh!

Don't Like It, Change The Law

"Editorial: Supervisors should say if they accept insurance

June 24, 2008

Brown County does have a legal argument to withhold the names of Brown County Board supervisors who have accepted optional health and dental insurance benefits — but constituents have a right to know what benefits they're buying for their elected supervisors." Editorial: Supervisors should say if they accept insurance | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

I think the voters have a right to know but I question the P G for getting their nose bent out of shape here. Brown County is not a little town in Northern Wisconsin. If the law states the county has the right to keep names of covered employee's private , then so be it.

Have the voters change the law in the future (HIPAA). For now it's a closed issue!For now, get over it.

The very people that try to save Brown County money and serve the people get abused and will not run again. Maybe Brown County needs more honest up standing county supervisors like Mr. McGee from Milwaukee and the PG can say how a fine supervisor should act! I wonder how his verdict will come out?

Ooopps, I guess not too good.

God-Fearing Atheists

The study detailed Americans' deep and broad religiosity, finding that 92 percent believe in God or a universal spirit -- including one in five of those who call themselves atheists.

Which means that one in five atheists don't know what the word atheist means.

This might not be all that abnormal. I'll bet there's a percentage of any given group, made up of self-identified members, which has a basic misunderstanding of what actually defines the group.

George Carlin

I'm a little late but thought I would add a part of my younger life to my blog.

George Carlin,

It must of been sometime in 1973 or 74. Some how I went to K mart by Lambeau Field and purchased my first 8 track tape. The Seven words! I remember driving to pick pickle's to make some money at my dads pickle patch. My parents Ford Galaxy 500 with the 8 track player on the floor between the passenger and drivers seat. I would play that tape over and over and over again. When as a young kid, it made me smile and laugh.

I know my mom would of had a heart attack if she knew I had it and played it and my dad used worst words then George on a regular basis but still would of kicked my butt! I'm not sure if I still have it but still was a funny tape! Would I let my 17 and 18 year old sons listen to it today? Well, as long as their mother is not around. I am not a prude and know my boys swear, but I remind them not to do it in front of their mom. As I get older, my life has changed and contrary to what George thought, I have gotten closer to my maker. But Carlin was a comedian and made his money being funny.

So to you George Carlin, thanks for the memories.

"George Carlin mourned as counterculture hero

By KEITH ST. CLAIR – 4 hours ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television. Some People Are Stupid. Stuff. People I Can Do Without. George Carlin, who died of heart failure Sunday at 71, leaves behind not only a series of memorable routines, but a legal legacy: His most celebrated monologue, a frantic, informed riff on those infamous seven words, led to a Supreme Court decision on broadcasting offensive language.

The counterculture hero's jokes also targeted things such as misplaced shame, religious hypocrisy and linguistic quirks — why, he once asked, do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Carlin, who had a history of heart trouble, went into St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica on Sunday afternoon complaining of chest pain and died later that evening, said his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He had performed as recently as last weekend at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas." The Associated Press: George Carlin mourned as counterculture hero
