Why Spend The Money, "U.S. 41/Wisconsin 29" Interchange

From the Green Bay Press.

Why Are we spending all this money and make all these changes if we all will drive the Obama cars.

"U.S. 41/Wisconsin 29 interchange to get 8 roundabouts
DOT holds public meeting on project, set for 2011

By Malavika Jagannathan • • May 28, 2009

About 50 people attended a public meeting Wednesday evening to see the changes proposed by the Department of Transportation for the interchange of U.S. 41 and Wisconsin 29, including eight roundabouts.

The interchange is pegged for major reconstruction between 2011 and 2015 to separate regional traffic between the freeways from local traffic on Shawano Avenue.

About 160,000 vehicles will travel through U.S. 41 and Wisconsin 29 in 2035, according to the DOT.

Hobart resident Tuf Zimmer, who lives in the Indian Trails neighborhood, said he feels more positive about the project after seeing the information presented at the meeting but is concerned with the eight roundabouts being installed at intersections and ramps.

"I'm going to have to go through seven if I want to go to Fleet Farm, and that's my concern," Zimmer said.

"But 10 years from now it'll be good."

Eight interchanges along the highway in Brown County will be reconstructed as part of a massive U.S. 41 reconstruction project.

The improvements on Wisconsin 29 will occur concurrently with the interchange work. That work is planned for 2011, although the exact schedule has yet to be mapped out, U.S. 41 communications manager Kris Schuller said.

Other changes include a frontage road between Brown County J and Packerland Drive, an interchange at Packerland Drive, a free flow interchange between Wisconsin 29 and U.S. 41, reconstruction of Taylor Street between Dousman Street and the railroad crossing south of Shawano Avenue and roundabouts at various intersections.

Keith Schuch of ELS Escort Limousine received a letter from the DOT about the meeting and came with the concern that his business's larger vehicles and stretch limos wouldn't fit around the roundabouts.

But Schuch, who lives near Wisconsin 29 and whose business is located on Hinkle Street, thinks the project will be a nice addition to the area.

"I think it'll be great when it's done, but it's going to be a headache while it's being built," Schuh said.

Gasoline Futures Up

Does this mean we have inflation on gasoline? Just checking Bloomberg and this is what it showed on wholesale gasoline prices.

This morning I thought it was around 1.86 gal on the wholesale market.

Shawano Hwy 22 Bridge Rebuild

From the Shawano Leader.

"By Donna Hobscheid, Leader Reporter

A six-month closure of the Highway 22 bridge into Shawano may be two years off, but businesses are already concerned about access.

Reconstruction of the bridge is expected to run from April to October of 2011.

“It’s going to be a major impact on us,” said Dave Slaughter, general manager of the Comfort Inn & Suites just south of the bridge.

He was also concerned about any temporary closure of Riverbend Road, which leads to their driveway.

“We can’t close our driveway. We’re a 24-hour business,” said Slaughter, who was among about a dozen business people, municipal officials and residents who attended an information meeting Wednesday at Shawano Community High School."

Link to article

Why not just build a new bridge next to the old bridge and keep the old one open till the new one is completed!

Da, sorry, that would just be too easy!

But it would cost too much! Do you really think a bridge built in 2011 will not cost more money?

Where's the stimulus?

Start building it now!

Crap or get off the pot!

Where is Steve Kagen on this?

Pravda See's It, Are Americans Blind ????

From Pravda.
"It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters. "

Reply Letter From A Grandfather

Got this from an e mail. How True, how true.


John is 63 years old and owns his own business.
He is a life-long republican and sees his dream of retiring next year is now all but
gone. With the stock market crashing and all the new taxes coming

his way, john knows he will be working for a good number more years.


John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She

drives a late model car, wears all the latest fashions, and also

likes going out and eating out a lot. Ashley campaigned hard for

Obama, and after he won the election she made sure her grandfather

(and all other republican family members) received more than an

earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that

Obama won the election.


Ashley recently found herself short of cash and cannot pay her

bills, again. As she has done many other times in the past, she

e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.        


Here is his reply:




I am replying to your request for more money. Ashley, you know I

love you dearly and am sympathetic to your financial plight.

Unfortunately, times have changed. With the election of president

Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new

economic plan of our own....The  'Ashley Economic Plan'. Let me



Your grandmother and I are highly productive, wage-earning tax

payers. As you know, we have lived a comfortable life and in return

have forgone many things like fancy vacations, luxury cars, etc. We

have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But this

plan has changed. Your president is significantly raising our

personal and business taxes. He says it is so he can give our hard

earned money to other people. Do you know what this means, Ashley?

It means less income for us. Less income means we must cut back on

many business and personal expenditures. One example is, we were

forced to let go of our receptionist today. You know her. She always

gave you candy when you visited my office. Did you know she worked

for us for the past 18 years? I can't afford her anymore.


That is a taste of the business side. Some personal economic

effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than

you. You know very well that over the years your grandmother and

I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food,

housing, clothing, gifts, etc., Etc. By your vote, you have chosen another

family over ours for help. Judging from your e-mail requesting more

money, I recommend you call 202-456-1111. That is the direct telephone

number for the White House. You yourself repeatedly  told me I was

foolish to vote republican. You said Mr. Obama is going to be the

people's president and is going to help every American live a better



Based upon everything you have told me and things we heard from him

as he campaigned, I am sure Mr. Obama will be happy to send a check

or transfer money into your checking account. Have him call me for

the transaction and account numbers, which by now I know by heart.


Perhaps you now can understand what I have been saying for all my

life: Those who vote for the president should consider what the

impact of an election will be on the nation as a whole, and not just

be concerned with what they can get for themselves (welfare, etc.).


What Obama voters don't seem to realize is all of the "government's"

money he is 'redistributing' to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying

Americans (deemed "less fortunate") comes from tax money collected

from income tax-paying families.


Remember how you told me, "only the richest of the rich will be

affected"? Guess what, honey? Because of our business, your

grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich.

On paper, it might look that way. But in the real world, we are far

from it.


But, as you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have

to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper. You

understand what that means, right? It means that raising taxes on

productive people results in them having less money. Less money

for everything, including granddaughters.


Congratulations on your choice for "change".   For future

reference, I encourage you to attempt to add up the total value

of the gifts and money you've received from us over the years,

and compare it to what you expect to get over the next four years

from  Mr. Obama.


Remember, we love you dearly... But from now on you'll need to call

the number referenced above when you need help.


Good luck, sweetheart.

What If Hillary Won

From Dick Morris.

Just asking, would today be different if Hillary won?

"By Dick Morris

Published on on May 26,2009

Asked why he was naming some of his rivals to top administration jobs, President Lyndon B. Johnson said it best: “I’d rather have them inside the tent pissing out than outside pissing in.” President Obama seems to echo Johnson’s management style in his handling of Bill and Hillary Clinton." THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING CLINTONS at

Later in the article.
How long will Hillary subject herself to this discipline? Likely as long as Obama is popular. Should his ratings fade, she might move away from the president and could even consider a primary contest against him in 2012.

I Second That

Ol' Broad on Republicans.

I agree!
"Conservatism works, and you dipwads forgot about that! You think the Party lost because the tent wasn’t big enough? Give me a break! Y’all lost because you forgot that sound principles will bring in more folks to that big tent. Y’all go right ahead and keep compromising yourself into non-existence, but you can leave me out of your tent! Too many piles of poop, too many flies, and way too many fleas!"

Please stop playing John McCain talking about hero's!

I give John McCain credit for being an American, but I stop short and say he has sold out his COUNTRY in his political life with McCain Fiengold etc, stc, etc.

Enough said.

You know my pick to win.

With republicans like Powell who needs the democrats. That's right, they are one and the same!

Living With The Liberal Left, Rape at Two In The Afternoon

"Officer Moses said Thomas is a known panhandler in Spokane, but does not have a history of sexual assault or rape. However, he does have record with the police department.

"He has minor infractions for trespassing," Moses said.

Although witnesses were disturbed and shocked having seen a rape play out in broad daylight, Moses says a rape like this is extremely rare. " Rape at Riverfront Park in broad daylight - News, Weather and Sports for Spokane, WA and Coeur d'Alene, ID |

How long will we put up with the liberal left. So "he does have record with the police department", really!

We are expected to live under their rules and where does it it get us? Panhandlers raping in broad daylight. I am assuming Washington State has concealed carry! Someone should of reacted!

How much will we have to take.

Not much more.

We need to take our country back, and soon!

Wisconsin has court rulings offering some protections for reporters in Wisconsin, but no state law." Bill aimed to protect journalists introduced in Wisconsin | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

Dave Hansen's Whopper Of The Weekend

From WBAY.
"Sen. Hasen said, "The other side has the ability to say we should be spending more money at a time when there is none and it seems kind of different that way, but we've got to be conservative" Working the Weekend to Fix the Budget - WBAY-TV Green Bay-Fox Cities-Northeast Wisconsin News:

First, It's H A N S E N not Hasen. It's not my spell check mistake.

Second, who in the republican party is saying "we should be spending more money at a time when there is none" and Hansen is now saying "we've got to be conservative"! That's a WHOPPER!

Shame on Dave Hansen for trying to spin, twist, deceive, no matter what you call it, lie to the people of Wisconsin concerning the budget shortfall. It's Diamond Jim Doyle, Hansen himself and the democratic party that is taking the people of Wisconsin to the cleaners and he blames the other party!

Shame on WBAY for not calling him on it.

Will anyone else in the MSM call them out on their ponzi scheme to rape and pillage the people of Wisconsin of their own hard working money.

Won't happen! Well maybe when the MSM get's used and abused like the people of Wisconsin and maybe, just maybe start reporting the real news about those democratic carpetbaggers in the state of Wisconsin.

Dave Hansen, You and your party are out of control so please stop telling WHOPPERS!
