Posted: July 11, 2008

Madison - The Menasha Corp. and other Wisconsin businesses won a huge victory Friday when the state Supreme Court ruled that they are entitled to an estimated $265 million in sales tax refunds and interest - money state government doesn't have now. " JS Online: Business wins big in high court

Where is the state going to find the $265 million they just lost.

Can we all say "bigger state budget deficit".

The Truth About Tax Cuts
Updated 7/10/2008
A few facts about lower marginal tax rates which Dems would prefer you not know

1) Lower marginal tax rates have not produced lower revenues.

In fact, dropping the marginal tax rate from 91% to the current 35% has, by virtue of The Laffer Curve, slightly increased real tax revenues (meaning tax revenues as a percentage of GDP).

And, as is evident in the following chart, the Bush Tax Cuts have produced one of the more significant increases in real tax revenues:" SBVOR

The U S government keeps taking in more and more money and we keep spending more and more. Top chart show income from taxes.

And what do the lib's and the left keep telling us?

We need more! The rich need to pay more! Wrong! The top 1% are paying almost 40% of all tax to the government. The bottom 50% of taxpayers are paying 3.1 % of all taxes. second chart shows tax income.

Tax cuts work, and what does Obama want to do? Take the tax cuts away.

People, please wake up!

"Cremated remains part of fireworks show

July 3, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS—One of the fireworks bursting above the city this year will contain a bit of cremated remains -- a fitting tribute, organizers say, to the man who ran the annual event for 40 years.

Meredith Smith died in February at age 74. About a half-teaspoon of his ashes will be in a fireworks shell that will create a white burst in the sky for the finale of the show, set for Thursday night.

"I can't think of a better way," said family friend Kevin Moss.

He also will be memorialized through hundreds of T-shirts referring to the tribute as "the last shot."" Cremated remains part of fireworks show -

According to Indiana law, cremated remains may be disposed of on the property of a consenting owner, uninhabited public land or in a waterway.

Private Grant Money

Low and behold good news.
This is what private donations and not tax payers money can do for education. Nice the UWGB reported this. Good for the students that are receiving the PRIVATE grant money

All this money gone, spent and nobody knows what happened.Does anyone care? Read the whole article to get the full story of this example of government waste.

The bottom line, this corruption, over paying, waste by our government happens all the time. And what does the average person in this country thinks about this?

Nothing! One, they don't care, two, most don't know. Our politicians are voting all the time to fill somebody's pockets and leave their constituents holding the bag. Children aren't being educated, we need more money. Voting no means no band, no football, no girls basketball in school. Use compact lights or the planet is doomed. We need to reduce the speed limit to 55. Why? No we cannot drill in ANWR, it would take 10 years to get one drop of oil. We have to mandate ethanol as the corn farmers and ethanol plant owners take bags of our money to their banks.

The time people will care is when they will wait for months for health care. Fill their compact cars with $6.00 gasoline. Pay $5.00 for a loaf of bread. Our politicians brag about what program they got for their district and who is paying for it? The tax payer

Here is a local grant from the Green Bay P G. Why, do we really need to study bed rock in Green Bay? $109,000 grant helps fund study of area bedrock Could we spend that money better? God forbid maybe not spend it at all? Saving money isn't cool in Washington.

This happens all the time and most don't see, don't know and don't care. The last 50 years people have been so brainwashed and have become dependent on government it just makes you sick.

So who's fault is all this? To most ,"I don't know, happens all the time,no big deal, pass the sweet corn.

Kagen Approval rating 9 %

This is from Tuesday but thought you might want to know if you missed it or if the MSM didn't tell you.

Congress' approval plunges to 9 percent
1st time ever rating for lawmakers sinks to single digits
Posted: July 08, 2008
8:35 pm Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDail

A major tracking poll for the first time shows Americans' appproval of Congress has dipped below 10 percent.

The most recent Rasmussen Reports survey calculates a mere 9 percent say Congress is doing a good or excellent job, while a majority of Americans, 52 percent, believe it is doing a poor job, which also ties a record high." Congress' approval plunges to 9 percent

Just some questions for Steve Kagen.

Are you in the U S Congress?

Are you a congressman from the 8th district from Wisconsin?

Is congresses approval ratings in the latest Rasmussen poll at 9%?

If Congress is at 9% then your approval numbers are at 9 %.

Mr Kagen, this tells everyone in the 8th district only 9 out of 100 people think you are doing a good job.

Where are the other 91 out of 100?

Mr. Kagen, they are filling their gas tanks with $4.00 gasoline, $4.50 to $5.00 a gal diesel fuel. Paying more for food, paying more for bread, paying more for everything they touch. Where are the businesses that are paying higher costs? Higher costs means less business, which means less work, which means less pay for the hard working people of the 8th district.

That's 9 out of 10 disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress.
91 ot of 100 disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress.
910 out of a 1000 disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress.
9,100 out of 10,000 disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress.
91,000 out of 100,000 disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress.
910,000 out of 1,000,000 people disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress. .

How many more people in the 8th district are disappointed in Steve Kagen and Congress?

When Steve Kagen took office in 2007 he promised things would get done! He promised things would change! What has he done , specifically? The change he gave us, we do not want.

In the 70's under Jimmy Carter it was the "misery index". Remember 15 to 20% mortgage rates

In 2008 under Steve Kagen it is the "PAIN INDEX"!
We call this " KPI", the "Kagen Pain Index"!

The pain of paying more for everything in our everyday lives. The pain when Steve Kagen listens and promises and talks and promises and listens and still after a year and a half has done nothing to help the people of the 8th district!

People are sick and tired of the PAIN of paying more for everything.
The PAIN of filling their tanks everyday with $4.00 gasoline.
The PAIN of truckers filling their trucks with $5.00 diesel fuel!
The PAIN of a mother buying everyday food items for her children. The PAIN that mother feels at the checkout trying to squeeze every penny she can!

Steve Kagen can listen all he wants, but for all the hard working people of the 8th district, it is results that count. A phrase from Bill Clinton, Steve Kagen is not feeling your PAIN!

The people of the 8th district are tired of empty promises, tired of an empty suit. Tired of Steve Kagen caring more for environmentalist then the people of the 8th district.

If you don't mind high gas prices ..
If you don't mind high diesel prices.
If you don't mind high food costs.
If you don't mind higher soda prices,
then you must be the happy few.

But if your mad as hell, then call Steve Kagen and tell him you have had enough.

For starters,
tell Steve Kagen to drill in ANWR now!
Tell Steve Kagen to drill off our coastal shores now!
Tell Steve Kagen to act like our congressman and not take care of the special interests groups that are giving him campaign money.

Here's how to contact him.
They may not answer but leave a message anyway.
Remember to tell him who you are and where you live, His office will get the message but Steve in his own simple way will not understand.

So if you care about a do nothing congress then call him!

Obama Outsourcing NASCAR

From Breitbart
"Obama in talks to sponsor car in NASCAR race: report" Obama in talks to sponsor car in NASCAR race: report

Jul 11 01:25 PM US/Eastern

They must have a whole lot of money to pay for this themselves.

US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign officials are in talks to sponsor a stock car in an August 3 race in Pennsylvania, Sports Illustrated reported on its website on Friday.

Should the deal come off with BAM Racing's car No. 49, it would mark the first time a major US presidential candidate has been a primary sponsor on a vehicle in the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) series.

Ken Schrader would drive the Toyota-powered entry at Pocono in a state thought to be a battleground for US electoral college votes in November's election between Obama and Republican rival John McCain.

Kenny, what are you thinking? Holy cow! What a reach for Obama.

Why is he sponsoring a Toyota, What about American owned companies like G M , Ford or Dodge? What are the unions going to say? Has he given up his made in America stance. Would you say Obama is outsourcing his NASCAR position?

Bet he backs out at the last minute.

I won't believe it till I see it.

Kagen, Up To Our Necks In The 8th District

From the Green Bay Press
"Gas prices pump up state political contests
Voters rank them among top issues

By ELLYN FERGUSON • Press-Gazette Washington bureau • July 11, 2008 " Gas prices pump up state political contests | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

WASHINGTON — Controlling high gas prices promises to be a major issue in the 8th Congressional District race, with voters nationally and in the state naming it a top priority.

Recent national polls have shown a majority of Americans now favor increased oil exploration in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and along coastal areas.

Psst, not too loud, did anyone tell Steve Kagen about this?
In the 8th district race, Republican challenger John Gard of Suamico held a town hall meeting Wednesday in Green Bay to discuss his plan to help decrease gas prices, and his opponent, U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton, has spoken out on the subject. Many residents Wednesday said the issues surrounding oil prices will factor into whom they vote for.

"This is a top priority for me," said Lois Halonen of Green Bay. "Gas prices keep going up, and nobody's doing anything about it."

Jay Kumm of Green Bay echoed Halonen's concerns.

Lois, you are so right. The "nobody's doing anything about it." is do nothing Steve Kagen. Can you believe this. Even Ellyn from the P G staff is finally doing some accurate journalism. We are finally hearing what real people are saying about higher gas prices. It takes John Gard to open peoples eyes. Good going John.

Wait a minute, this gets better, read this. This is from our do nothing but talk 8th district congressman

Kagen and other Democrats are calling for the Bush administration to sell a portion of the oil in the government's Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Kagen and the dems say we have no supply problems, then why do they want to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve? What the H E double L are they talking about.

And now, the quote of the day from who else, Steve Kagen!

"It's not a long-term solution, but it's something to help people keep their heads above water," Kagen said.

Say what?This is a home run commercial for somebody to run. even nationally, a liberal dem telling you to keep your head above water, HOLY COW!

People of the 8th district, your in water up to your neck, your hands are above your head, In one hand you have an empty red gasoline can, in the other you have a gas pump with no hose!

Steve Kagen is standing over you and does nothing but talk to you! Can you just hear Steve Kagen say, You'll be o k, you stay there until we get other environmentally safer solutions. Now don't worry. you won't drown, I'm your congressman. Remember my campaign slogan, "Together We Will" get through this.

Steve Kagen has been talking lately about more drilling.

O k Steve, as my father would always say, S _ _ _ ( crap ) or get off the pot"

Will anyone in the press ask him two specific questions?

Steve Kagen, will you vote yes to drilling in ANWR?

Steve Kagen, will you vote yes on off shore drilling along our shores?

Somebody, anybody, please ask him!

People of the 8th district, Steve Kagen will do nothing but keep your head above water. John Gard will get us lower fuel prices while we work on other fuel alternatives. John Gard will vote yes to AVWR, vote yes to off shore drilling. If you give Steve Kagen your vote this fall he will watch you drown in higher fuel prices and smile all the way to Washington.

It's time to send Steve Kagen back to private practice.

Weekend Recap

Just a few comments about our holiday weekend.

Friday,great time on the lake with a bunch of good friends. We will miss them all next summer.

Friday night,oops, sleeping by 7:00, yes we had fun.


My grandson had tons of fun in the lake.

The lake association had a boat decorating contest. Anyone on the lake could decorate their boat for trophy's and prizes. Some one dropped the ball on the contest. Out of 8 to 10 contestants, (who knew) only three boats went past the people on the eastern half of the lake. For years, someone would lead all floats around the lake so all residents could see the hard work people put in and gave the smaller children on the lake something to look forward to in their future. All floats used to be given numbers to place on their boats. Well not the case in 08. What a disappointment! Either the people on eastern half of the lake aren't important or they should discontinue the annual boat parade decorating contest. And you wonder why a lot of people don't participate in other lake functions. I must give credit to the three or so floats that did go past the eastern shore, they should of got all the prizes. To the young children on the lake, don't worry, it' must be all about the adults.

Saturday night, Great fireworks display. It rivals most towns fireworks in quantities and performance. Hats off to all that put the fireworks show on, especially the main man, awesome job, Thank You.

Sunday, R & R all day. Out of commission.

All and all, a great weekend, hope you all had a great one too.

Didn't See That

From the Appletonian who talks about Steve Kagen's real base of constituents and who his real friends are in a recent Steve Kagen visit to Milwaukee.

"In holding a fundraiser with Conyers, Kagen is basically thumbing his nose at constituents who elected him as a Democratic moderate who promised to work pragmatically across party lines. He owes Fox Valley residents who may not share Conyers's--and apparently Steve Kagen's--extreme views an explanation.

As if holding the fundraiser with Conyers to begin with wasn't enough, Kagen held it in Milwaukee. Doesn't seem to me like he wants the good people of Appleton to know the company he keeps." The Appletonian

Did anyone see any articles from the Appleton Post Crescent or Green Bay Press Gazette on any of this?

Shouldn't these two large (unbiased)?, newspapers inform the people of the 8th district about Steve Kagen?

A fund raiser in Milwaukee? How come not Appleton or Green Bay?

Campaigning with Congressman John Conyers from Michigan?

Conyers sits down with local impeachment advocates reported by Greg J. Borowski from JS ONLINE?

I did a search of both papers and as of this post did not see any articles about the Kagen Fundraiser. Are they covering for Steve Kagen again? You see here how the local MSM hides what it wants from the people of the 8th district. It takes a Milwaukee newspaper to even bring it up? Can someone please point out good professional journalism!

"Didn't see that" in your local newspapers seems to be happening a lot lately. Oh, that's right, the MEDIA is just helping their guy Kagen.

Thanks to the Appletonion and others for keeping people informed.
