Bishop Dolan of New York.

From Dad29, Rocco and the New York Post.

Our Catholic faith is our family and we cannot give up.

Steve Kagen, Tea Party Wake Up Call

From All American Patriots
The projects total nearly $34.5 million.

Quote from Congressman Kagen
"What we need in Wisconsin are jobs, jobs and more jobs and these investments to Green Bay’s transit will help strengthen our local economy. " Wisconsin Governor Doyle Approves Green Bay Transit Projects for Federal Recovery and Reinvestment Funding | All American Patriots: US politics, domestic and world news, science, environment, energy and technology

How do investments in buses give us jobs? How does this strengthen our economy? Did he tell you how much all this is costing? Just a mere 34.5 million dollars!

The Green Bay projects, worth $2.9 million, include the following:
Four clean diesel buses ($1,440,000) that will operate more efficiently and reduce emissions.
Are the buses made on Wisconsin?
A new smart-card system ($720,000), which will make bus fares easier and more convenient.
What state is manufacturing the security system?
A security system ($500,000) that will put passenger safety first.
Improvements in maintenance, radio and support equipment ($240,000).

Who is making the security system? Are they a Wisconsin manufacturer?
For the small urban transit systems – cities with populations between 50,000 and 200,000 – the next step is for each city to work with the Federal Transit Administration to submit its application and have its project certified by the U.S. DOT. Funding for these projects totals $23,154,677.

How many cities in the Wisconsin's 8th district is between 50, 000 and 200,000 population?
Projects for non-urbanized transit systems were approved by the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance yesterday. The next step is for the state Department of Transportation to submit funding applications on their behalf to the federal government. If fully funded, these projects will total $11,299,461.
So Pulaski, Lena, Gillett, Oconto, Peshtigo, Rhinelander, Eagle River and all the other towns in the 8th have to fight for the scraps?

Sorry, I don't see one job for the people of the 8th! So for 34.5 million dollars where are the jobs Mr. Kagen! All this money spent, where are the jobs! Where are the JOBS!

Oh by the way did you see the March unemployment numbers?
BROWN 8.6% Last year 4.6%
OCONTO 13.6% last year 6.6%
MARINETTE 11.9% last year 6.1%
SHAWANO 10.4% last year 5.7%
DOOR 11.8% last year 7.5%

Wake up people!
Those that were at the tea party or if you want to ask Steve Kagen these and other questions, feel free to call. Where are the JOBS!

Big Whoop

From Drudge and Yahoo Finance
"The thrifty measures Obama ordered for federal agencies are the equivalent of asking a family that spends $60,000 in a year to save $6."
SPIN METER: Saving federal money the easy way - Yahoo! Finance

Those Are Ours

From Dad29. Need to go Dad for the full story.
"Two California Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on I-15, just north of the Marine Corps Air Station at Miramar . One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the crest of a hill. The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour." Dad29

Martin,, All Day, All The Time

From You tube

Old Man's Club


My God, the old man won one. Were talking my driver here! It's been a long time coming.

"Martin became the oldest driver to win in the series since Morgan Shepherd won at age 51 on March 20, 1993 at Atlanta. Martin's victory was his first since Oct. 9, 2005 at Kansas and his first since joining Hendrick Motorsports to start the 2009 season." NASCAR.COM - At 50, Martin scores first victory in nearly four years - Apr 19, 2009

It just doesn't get any better then this!
