Canada adds 27,100 jobs, unemployment edges up to 8.7 percent

* By Rob Gillies, Associated Press Writer

TORONTO (AP) -- Canada added a better-than-expected 27,100 jobs in August, one of the biggest gains since the recession began in the country last fall.

But according to Statistics Canada all of the jobs are part-time.

The agency said Friday that Canada's unemployment rate edged up to 8.7 percent from 8.6 percent in July, as more Canadians began looking for work.

Still, the addition of 27,100 jobs is well above the previous month's 45,000 job retreat. The result also beat consensus expectations of a 15,000 job loss month." Canada adds 27,100 jobs in August - Yahoo! Finance

HWY 41 / 29 Bypass Roundabouts

"Are roundabouts dangerous? So far, yes
Moorland Road roundabouts have two of city's three highest crash rates although severity has decreased

Posted: Sept. 1, 2009

New Berlin — After negotiating his way through the Moorland Road/Rock Ridge roundabout to take in a movie at the Ridge Cinemas, Steffen Smith didn't mince words when asked about driving through the circle of asphalt.

"I don't like them," he said. "They're not as safe as they wanted them to be. People don't know if they should yield or go, and that creates a hazard."" Are roundabouts dangerous? So far, yes - NewBerlinNOW
There were 2.08 crashes per 1 million vehicles through the intersection, the highest crash rate among the top 25 New Berlin intersections in 2008.

New Berlin's other roundabout, at Moorland Road and Interstate 43, had the third highest crash rate with 1.43 crashes per 1 million vehicles.

Those figures are based on accidents reported to the state - those that involve injuries or more than $1,000 in property damage. Eight of the city's top 25 intersections had crash rates more than 1 per 1 million vehicles in 2008, an indication that the intersection should be looked at for safety improvements, city officials say.

Feingold's fiasco, Kennedy's death: What they mean for health care reform
Richard Moore
Investigative Reporter

Surely U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, Democrat of Wisconsin, had no idea that he was about to create an international firestorm when he walked into the Mercer Community Center Aug. 19 and started to mouth off about the current condition of health care reform.

There won't be a vote on reform legislation before Christmas, Feingold told a passionate crowd. Not only that, the senator quipped, there might not be any reform legislation, period." Feingold's fiasco, Kennedy's death: What they mean for health care reform
The senator's words brought applause from the crowd, but the liberal Feingold seemed rather depressed. We're headed in the direction of doing absolutely nothing, he said, and it's unfortunate.

A few days later, Feingold issued a statement retreating from his Mercer remarks. He was just frustrated because of all the public opposition to reform he had encountered, he suggested, and in the days since his Mercer appearance more supporters had shown up and bolstered his spirits.

Here's what almost certainly did happen in those six days: The Democratic congressional leadership (Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi) and the Obama administration gave the senator, as John Lennon might put it, a damn good whacking, and told him to make things right.

And so he issued his "walkback" statement, as weak as it was. In politics a walkback occurs after you have spoken an inconvenient truth that you can't take back, so you walk back to it and try to somehow explain it away.

Then, too, over this past weekend, Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu said she did not support a public option. So it seems like the Russ we heard in Mercer was telling the truth.

As for the public, every poll shows a majority of Americans now opposing Obama's and the Democrats' plan. Even far-left liberals such as Dennis Kucinich recognize the public sentiment, again, just like Feingold did in Mercer.

Wild horse roundup in Montana, Wyoming planned

BILLINGS, Mont. — A federal judge has rejected a request to halt a roundup of about 190 wild horses in the Pryor Mountains along the Montana-Wyoming border.

The roundup had been delayed since Monday as U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan considered an injunction sought by two Colorado-based advocacy groups.

Sullivan denied the request Wednesday. The Bureau of Land Management, which operates the 38,000-acre Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range, says the roundup will begin Thursday.

The roundup will capture the range’s entire population, with 70 adult horses and their foals to be kept for adoption. The remaining horses will be freed after some of the mares are given a contraceptive vaccine.

Opponents say the roundup could end up ruining one of the most genetically pure herds of Spanish colonial horses in the country."

DNR ignores Lakeland Times open records request Even after court victory, paper waits for names, salaries
Richard Moore
Investigative Reporter

Hardly a month has lapsed since the state Supreme Court ruled against a claim of confidentiality for the names of unionized state employees, but for more than three weeks the DNR has ignored another Lakeland Times open records request asking for those records and for other information.

In the wake of the court victory, Lakeland Times publisher Gregg Walker sent the request Aug. 6 to DNR secretary Matt Frank. As of Saturday, Aug. 29, the newspaper had not received any response or acknowledgment.

The law requires agencies to respond to open records requests "as soon as practicable and without delay," which the state's attorney general's office has long interpreted to mean within 10 working days.

Walker said he was shocked by the agency's brazenness.

"Here we have the state Supreme Court saying the DNR cannot withhold the names of these public employees, and the DNR just goes on about its business as if the Supreme Court did not exist," Walker said. "They are not only ignoring the newspaper, not only ignoring the courts, but they are breaking the law, both by not releasing the names and by ignoring our new open records request.""

I'm not sure but I thought it said, Public Option" Remember the chants from the union crowd for public health care. You have to feel sorry for all these people.

"Under fire, President Obama shifts strategy

Aides to President Barack Obama are putting the final touches on a new strategy to help Democrats recover from a brutal August recess by specifying what Obama wants to see in a compromise health care deal and directly confronting other trouble spots, West Wing officials tell POLITICO. "
Under fire, President Obama shifts strategy - Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei -

And although House leaders have said their members will demand the inclusion of a public insurance option, Obama has no plans to insist on it himself, the officials said.

On health care, Obama’s willingness to forgo the public option is sure to anger his party’s liberal base. But some administration officials welcome a showdown with liberal lawmakers if they argue they would rather have no health care law than an incremental one. The confrontation would allow Obama to show he is willing to stare down his own party to get things done.

Public Option off the table.That's got to hurt! How does Congressman Kagen and the unions feel right now?

President Obama just threw them under the bus, Obama and Kagen on a plane going down and Obama jumps out with the only parachute, Kagen and the unions are on the titanic and Obama took all the lifeboats, their president just cut the wind from their sails, they got blind sided, they just got screwed, or how about their President just peed on their shoe from the next urinal in the men's room. They fought hard for the public option and today, gone. How do they feel? OUCH!
I have to give Congressman Kagen and the union's credit for standing up for what they were told and today they have to feel like crap. I hope they know what the president did today. You have to give them their due. I don't agree with them but I feel their pain.

Wait a minute, wait one dog gone minute. I just remembered being called a right wing mob, a nut, I got a post the other day that said I was a "F@#$%^ something", I take it all back. If Steve Kagen and the unions are that stupid for letting someone tell them what to do, what to say, where to go and then get left out in the cold, It's their own fault. They should know better.

"Clunkers boosts Ford sales; Chrysler sales fall
Sep 1 01:39 PM US/Eastern

DETROIT (AP) - The popular Cash for Clunkers program boosted Ford Motor Co.'s U.S. sales in August by 17.2 percent over last year, but shortages of smaller vehicles weighed on rival Chrysler Group LLC.

The program, which ended on Aug. 24, drew hordes of buyers into quiet showrooms by offering up to $4,500 toward new, more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. The hefty rebates gave automakers and dealers a much-needed lift, spurring 690,114 new sales, many of them during August, at a taxpayer cost of $2.88 billion.

Other automakers are expected to release U.S. sales figures later Tuesday. Combined, the results are likely to mark the first year-over-year monthly sales gain since October 2007.

Ford sold 181,826 cars and light trucks compared with 115,117 in August 2008, when high gas prices and growing economic uncertainty kept people away from showrooms.

Two of Ford's vehicles—the Focus and Escape—were among the top selling cars under the clunkers program. Sales of the Focus rose 56 percent while those of the Escape crossover vehicle climbed 49 percent. "

On Wednesday, Aug. 19, at a town hall meeting in Mercer, U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold was sounding downright disheartened in assessing the prospects for passing substantive health care reform this year.

A bill would not be voted on by Christmas, Feingold declared, and one might never happen at all, he added.

But by Tuesday night, Aug. 25, after national news outlets picked up The Lakeland Times story reporting his remarks, the senator was suddenly in a much more confident mood, saying he would work "to make sure" a reform bill passed by Christmas." Feingold backs away from Mercer remarks

Please, will someone run against Russ?

He gave news today that he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

It sounds like his is a slower, very treatable form. There are varieties that rage. My father was diagnosed with one of them a few years ago, and he’s still around to pester.

Go American health care!

And good luck to Mr. Sensenbrenner."

Steve Kagen, Dave Hansen and Local Union's Against Seniors?

Last Wednesday night August 26 at 6:00 pm, they were late, let's say 6:15, Congressman Steve Kagen and Wis. State Representative Dave Hansen had a health care rally with twenty plus union groups. After the opening prayer they showed a You Tube video called "Sick for Profit" by Robert Greenwald. Below is the You tube everyone watched at UWGB that night.

"Fight back against health insurance lies."

If you watched the video, one factor was the evil health insurance company "United Health Care". The evil health care group and it's CEO having lavish houses and making tons of money while people in this country suffer without health coverage. You could just feel the hate and anger against United Health Care and other insurance companies. The left can always bring real hate against those they choose to destroy.

By showing this film we can now say that Congressman Steve Kagen, Dave Hansen, the AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME and the other seventeen plus unions that were involved in the health care rally are against evil rich "United Health Care".

Got home from work and sometime after 1:00pm I'm watching CNBC, catching up on the markets. I see an AARP commercial on supplementing health care for seniors. At the end of the commercial it says AARP works with United Health Care to help with your health care costs. That's when I remembered Kagen and Hansen's union rally and the video they showed. I cannot as of yet find a you tube of the commercial but if you go to the following PDF at AARP you will see they indeed work with United Health Care.

AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance 866-654-9836 CODE ZDW
Supplemental coverage for members on or eligible for
Medicare. Insured by United HealthCare Insurance Company

So if Steve Kagen, Dave Hansen and the twenty plus unions who back them are against United Health Care, and if United Health Care works close with AARP, then Steve Kagen, Dave Hansen and local unions are against AARP! Can we now say Kagen, Hansen and the unions are against



One can only assume.

Will anyone from the MSM ask Kagen, Hansen and the unions if this is what they believe or are they being disingenuous? Also, can we ask AARP why they are for Obamacare/ Kenneddycare? Why is AARP in bed with Steve Kagen, Dave Hansen, the unions and the left? Can we ask AARP why their pals on the left bash insurance companies that they work with who help seniors! Which is it? Your either for or against United Health Care!

Can we call all this Hypocrisy? Sure looks like it!

Seniors, Steve Kagen and Dave Hansen are telling you one thing and working with their political groups who donate to their campaign something else. Seniors, Kagen and Hansen will sell you out with health care. Kagen and Hansen only care about being reelected.

Seniors, you cannot trust Steve Kagen and you cannot trust Dave Hansen with health care or your vote.

Believe it or not, your health, your happiness and your life may depend on who is elected in future elections!

Steve Kagen and Dave Hansen are against (you) the senior citizens who gave us this GREAT country!
