"China blasts US tire duties as protectionist blow
Sat Sep 12, 2009 2:35pm EDT
By Chris Buckley and Doug Palmer

BEIJING/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China decried a U.S. decision to impose added duty on Chinese-made tires, saying the move sent a dangerous protectionist signal before a G20 summit and could stoke reactions impeding global recovery.

But the White House played down the dispute, saying it was simply "enforcing the rules of the road" and did not expect the matter to escalate into a trade war." China blasts US tire duties as protectionist blow | Reuters

If a trade war starts, I have a question.

Who will ultimately pay for it? All of us. You were warned.

DC Tea Party, All Are Welcome

From Drudge and the Washington Post
"Jeff Mapps, 29, a stagehand and labor union member from South Philadelphia, left home about 6 a.m. to come to the protest. He said he hadn't been involved in previous Tea Party demonstrations, but he watches Fox News host Glenn Beck "all the time" and he wanted to be a part of something he thinks will be historic. Beck has been drumming up support for the march.

Holding a sign that said "Preserve, Protect, Defend" on a Red Line Metro train packed with conservative activists, Mapps fretted over a "blatant disregard for the Constitution." " Anti-Government Demonstration Draws Tens of Thousands to D.C.

The union management and hard core radical union members will have a hard time keeping real Americans union members away from the tea parties. It's their money also that the dems and Obama are throwing away! This is a sign of hope all Americans are fed up with what is going on in Washington DC. No bets but the 2010 elections should be interesting!

"Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count
Sep 11 06:29 PM US/Eastern
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Census Bureau on Friday severed its ties with ACORN, a community organization that has been hit with Republican accusations of voter-registration fraud.

"We do not come to this decision lightly," Census director Robert Groves wrote in a letter to ACORN, which was obtained by The Associated Press.

In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count. " Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count

This doesn't mean they won't hire ACORN people to do the census. The administration already has the names of every ACORN member now. ACORN people will be doing the census, it just won't be coordinated through their main headquarters. What's the old saying “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." How long will people be fooled by this administration?

Teachable Moment

First, why won't the MSM cover this, I am SHOCKED! From Dad29 and Gateway
"Gateway has pics of hundreds of MD's protesting ObamaCare in D.C. yesterday.

They had to take time out from performing unnecessary tonsillectomies and amputations. " Dad29

Second, off topic but these doctors remind me of my day yesterday. It a teachable moment to my inner circle of the seven most important people in my life.

The rest of you can move on.

I was parked in Appleton listening to talk radio off of Ballard Rd at my doctors office waiting for the dreaded every two year snap the glove, turn your head and cough check up. God, you know I hate the snap the glove part. JFYI, I have one GREAT doctor. Don't want to lose him to Obamacare and I told him that.

I first hear and then see a fire truck approaching. Hum, where are they going. Sure as God is my witness they pull into the MD complex. What, is there a fire, don't see any smoke? Is this something for hazmat? The fire truck stops and four, five firemen grab a couple bags and in a nonchalant manner walk towards the front door and go in. I guess from their walk there was no emergency. Next thing I know an ambulance pulls up by the front door and they pull out a gurney and take it in. No fire, something must be up, it's a doctors office.

Time to go in to get it over with. Check in, go to the left around the corner to the ( I think) blue section and have a seat. You ever notice in the doctors office there are a lot of magazines with the mailing address labels cut out? Low and behold out of my doctors office door come seven fireman, EMT people and one guy going out on the gurney. I overhear one say, your lucky it happened in a doctors office. Poor guy must of had a hard attack and they had to take him to the hospital. Did you every ride in an ambulance? It's kind of neat watching all the cars and trucks getting passed on the road. Sorry, back to yesterday.

Family, bet your wondering where I going with this? Here's my teachable moment. Observe and think about things in life. Don't take things at face value. Never believe all the MSM or what people tell you. Observe and try to see the bigger picture, read between the lines. After what I just observed, I had to ask myself a couple of questions.

Why did the Appleton, Grand Chute, not sure which, fire dept send a truck and numerous fire fighters to a possible heart attack victim. The doctors complex has to have over twenty five physicians there. Hello?
Is this where I say the lights are on and there's nobody home?

Does the fire department respond to every emergency call? How much does that cost the people of the area?

If the doctor called for an ambulance then why did the fire department show up?

Did the fire department not trust the twenty five doctors and maybe more nurses that were in the building to save the guy?

Do they have to respond to every emergency?

Was the fire department present because of liability issues in this country?
Can we all say we need tort reform in health care?

Can we say to Appleton or Grand Chute residents, you wonder why your taxes are high?

Is this what is called bloated big government? "Hello family", you have to pay taxes on all this!

Will the guy with the heart attack have three charges? A charge from his doctor, a charge for an ambulance ride and a charge from the fire department for showing up?

Is there no common sense in this world today?

For crying out loud it was a doctors office, why send the fire department?

Family, I have a few answers to the lunacy of life today but that is for another day. Observe, question and learn from life. God gave you five senses to use while here on earth. Use them and then use your God given mind to think things through. I know most of you think of me as the CRAZY OLD MAN but life will always have teachable moments.

Battle Line Drawn

With all the talk of health care, the word is out there but will Americans hear and believe it could happen? I speak here of Union management, leadership and some, maybe most but not all in today's unions and the future of health care. From Federal, state and county workers, to teachers in our schools, how far will they take this.
From the Marquette Warrior and the Wall Street Journal.
ObamaCare and Forced Unionization
"In the heated debates on health-care reform, not enough attention is being paid to the huge financial windfalls ObamaCare will dole out to unions—or to the provisions in the various bills in Congress that will help bring about the forced unionization of the health-care industry.
" Marquette Warrior

Here are some of the details.
Tucked away in thousands of pages of complex new rules, regulations and mandates are special privileges and giveaways that could have devastating consequences for the health-care sector and the American economy at large.

How strong will the SEIU get? Forced Union Membership?
The Senate version opens the door to implement forced unionization schemes pursued by former Govs. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois in 2005 and Gray Davis of California in 1999. Both men repaid tremendous political debts to Andy Stern and his Service Employees International Union (SEIU) by reclassifying state-reimbursed in-home health-care (and child-care) contractors as state employees—and forcing them to pay union dues.

HR 3200, don't worry, we're here to help you.
The current House version of ObamaCare (H.R. 3200) goes much further. Section 225(A) grants Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius tremendous discretionary authority to regulate health-care workers “under the public health insurance option.” Monopoly bargaining and compulsory union dues may quickly become a required standard resulting in potentially hundreds of thousands of doctors and nurses across the country being forced into unions.

Doctors will be forced into unions? So the union will twist (break) arms and then will send you to their doctors. You don't need death panels if the union boss has your life in his hands.
The House bill has a $10 billion provision to bail out insolvent union health-care plans. It also creates a lucrative professional-development grant program for health-care workers that effectively blackballs nonunion medical facilities from participation. The training funds in this program must be administered jointly with a labor organization—a scenario not unlike the U.S. Department of Labor’s grants for construction apprenticeship programs, which have turned into a cash cow for construction industry union officials on the order of hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

Where's the bailout for the other health care providers? Why not just take the $10 billion and pay for the uninsured, or pay for pre-existing conditions?
There’s more. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus has suggested that the federal government could pay for health-care reform by taxing American workers’ existing health-care benefits—but he would exempt union-negotiated health-care plans. Under Mr. Baucus’s scheme, the government could impose costs of up to $20,000 per employee on nonunion businesses already struggling to afford health care plans.

So give the unions a pass and impose charges of $20,000 to small business?
Americans are unlikely to support granting unions more power than they already have in the health-care field. History shows union bosses could abuse their power to shut down medical facilities with sick-outs and strikes; force doctors, nurses and in-home care providers to abandon their patients; dictate terms and conditions of employment; and impose a failed, Detroit-style management model on the entire health-care field.

Abuse power, shut down medical facilities, sick-outs and strikes, just what you want from your health care. If Americans let this pass, it's easy to imagine the consequences.

The battle lines will be drawn between two groups of people. It will have nothing to do with race, nothing to do with skin color, nothing to do with religious preference or nothing to do with your heritage. It will not matter how much you make or what your name is. The tensions between members or groups of different social classes will be but a memory in history.

For the people of this country, there will be only two groups of people, union and non union.
Union people will have free health care the non union will pay for free health care. Union people will be first in line and same day visits for health care, non union people will be in waiting lines for days, months and God forbid years for care.

Union people will have access to free prescriptions of the best medicines and the rest will have to buy generic Tylenol. Unions will see the best medical experts, non union will talk to death panels. Unions will get surgery and non unions will get a blue pill and will be told to go somewhere and die.

It will pit unions against employers. unions against non union workers. It will pit fathers against their own sons. Mothers against their own daughters. Union members will be for their brothers and sisters in the rank and file and diss their own blood brothers and sisters of their own families.
A mother or father will be on their death bed in some hospital and their son or daughter will be walking the side walk on strike for a longer break time. Cities will be divided with union members on one side of town with their nice homes and green cut lawns and the rest will live in shanty towns we read of the past or high rise complexes with broken windows and infested crime areas.

The days of racism and prejudice will be a page in history. Some will wonder and ask, "how did we get here, didn't see that coming." There will be no freedom of speech and no freedom to assemble. If you are non union, you will be told what to say, what to think, what doctor to see and what pill to take. Health care is not free. In the end, the history of the greatest country in the history of this world could be lost forever.

All this will happen in the disguise of health care for all. All this will happen before people even realize it even happened. The union bosses and the liberal left (most democrats) are seeking as much power and wealth they can get their hands on. Nothing will stop them. All for the sake of absolute power. If you want one example, I can only point to Merc in Fond du lac and how three worked to get a third vote when union management pretty much wrote off the workers of Mercury Marine.

The battle line has been drawn and a battle it will be. There is no telling what will happen

God Help America Wake up people.

The eighth-anniversary memorial ceremony at Ground Zero will include a reading by Vice President Joe Biden, accompanied by a long list of local elected officials.

In addition, each of the 115 Sept. 11 relatives expected to attend will be paired with a local volunteer to read off the names of those who perished.

Other remembrances are planned around the region, but Ground Zero will be the focal point for the families who -- for the first time -- will be let on the partially constructed Memorial Plaza.

Bagpipers and drummers will open the invitation-only get-together at 8:40 a.m., and Mayor Bloomberg will call for a moment of silence as church bells toll citywide at 8:46 a.m. -- the time the first airliner hit the north tower.

Other moments of silence will be observed at 9:03 a.m. -- the time the second airliner hit the south tower -- and at 9:59 and 10:29 a.m., to mark the towers' collapse.

The televised ceremony will be held in Zuccotti Park, across Church Street from the World Trade Center site.

As for the annual Tribute in Light, the two massive beams will return, recreating the towers' image, from sunset, about 7:11 p.m., to dawn.

"Pittsfield referendum on exceeding levy limit set for Tuesday
September 10, 2009

PITTSFIELD — Township voters will decide Tuesday whether to increase the levy beyond the state-imposed cap for ongoing road maintenance and construction needs.

The special referendum asks voters to decide whether the town should be allowed to exceed this limit for the next fiscal year and on an ongoing basis by a total of 38 percent or about $200,000 to pay for road repairs and construction.

At its annual meeting this spring, the town approved a motion to put the question on a special referendum in the fall.

The levy limit of 3 percent set by the state has restricted the town’s efforts to address its roads, said town chairman Keith Deneys. The town budgeted $66,000 in 2009 for road construction and borrowed $132,000 to cover the cost of resurfacing Brookside Drive, an arterial street that needed repair.

Ah, excuse me, Congressman Steve Kagen is a partisan, blue blooded democrat and he stands with republicans? Just goes to show he has no idea what he is doing. He's not for curbing lawsuits and doesn't like Bush. Remember this from Jo at FoxPoitics and his stories at the white house.

"So Rep. Kagen finds a rest room in the White House and lo and behold, “who walks in, Karl Rove… After Rove washed his hands (‘At least he’s a hand washer,’ Kagen said), he attempted to leave, but Kagen prevented his departure by holding the door closed and said, ‘You’re in the White House and you think (sic) your safe, huh? You recognize me? My name’s Dr. Multimillionaire and I kicked your ass.’” " - Appleton, WI News - What's really going on in the Fox Cities

And now from last night from the Hill.

"There was some confusion about when to stand – such as when Obama talked about curbing lawsuits against physicians. Rep. Steve Kagen (D-Wis.), a physician, leapt to his feet with the Republicans. But the rest of the Democrats looked around sheepishly, not sure whether to applaud a priority of former President George W. Bush. Goaded by Republicans, about half the Democrats rose to their feet."

Roger Wiegand of Trader Tracks Newsletter finally says what I always figured: "Cash for Clunkers was a real clunker. One out of four auto buyers using this program is having buyer's remorse as they just signed up for so many new payments they cannot afford."

Thanks, Roger! I always had a hard time believing in the unbelievable "Cash for Clunkers" program, where the United States government astonishingly gives up to US$4,500 to people who buy a new car! "

Poor devils that bought these cars and now can't afford them. Who's idea was this? Save this for the 2010 election.

90909 Beatles

Since today is the release of the re-released Beatles music, thought I would throw this out from my past.

"Today is 90909. For Beatles fans it's the release of alot of great stuff. All the Beatles music is being re- released fully remastered in either stereo or mono versions in two different boxed set. The CDs are all the original England album versions with the two Past Masters discs containing all the singles not o the albums. Imagine that, in those days the Beatles didn't put their singles on the albums not to give the fans any repeat stuff!!! Each disc also contains digi pack mini documentaries for each album."

Belling Neumann Interview

Mark Belling 1130 WISN just interviewed Mark Neumann for Wisconsin Governor. This is some of what I heard and my comments. Just my take. I am paraphrasing a lot of information on questions and answers.

For lower taxes for business to create jobs.

Brought up GE and green technology, translation, need more federal mandates and federal spending to support green technology. Mentioned something about keeping present eco laws or bills in place. Sounds like he wants more federal spending to profit GE, his business, etc, etc.

Ethanol mandates - did not come up.

Wants to negotiate with both parties. Listen to both sides of the table. My translation, will not compel his beliefs. A conservative governor leads and does not follow or negotiate. Done with RINO's!

Didn't really answer to expand charter or choice schools. Said he worked with some in Wisconsin and Arizona but did not come back and say he will expand choice and charter. Carefully chosen words for WEAC.

QEO, wants to sit down at the table. Translation, will let WEAC roll him. Again I say a governor leads and does not negotiate. RINO!

Commuter rail, opposed to it

High speed rail, opposed to it.

Zoo interchange, high priority.

His reasons to vote for him, private sector jobs and negotiator across table. Will he send us deeper in the hole sitting across the table? Looking for conservative leadership.

Couldn't give a reason or example of what Walker did or didn't do in Milwaukee County. Couldn't answer. Came close to blaming Walker for Milwaukee money problems. Alienating conservatives.

Jim Klauser, and insiders, Wisconsin Business Council, does not know Marc Marotta , meet Prange couple times, Klauser, doesn't know beyond campaign (what does that mean). Doesn't know business group. My big question here, shouldn't he know about this group? He's running for Wisconsin Governor, he should know this group or is he distancing himself from them. Is that why they could call them a shadow group?

Too many questions right now to, let me clarify, sounds too RINO for me, especially about the green crap!

Sorry Mark Neumann, can't help you here.

Move along.

Pulaski Obama Speech

"At Pulaski Middle School, a few hundred students watched the speech live in the auditorium. The school district decided students in the middle and high school who wanted to see the speech could come down and watch it." President Obama Speaks to Students -- But Who Heard It? - WBAY-TV Green Bay-Fox Cities-Northeast Wisconsin News:

Update, all of a sudden Pulaski comes out with numbers for the Obama speech. From the Press Gazette.
"About 900 of the about 1,200 Pulaski High School students and 300 of the 850 Pulaski Middle School students chose to watch Obama's speech live, Lightner said.

About 150 of about 1,500 district elementary school students watched."
Pulaski kids take in Obama speech | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

Thats 1350 out of 3500 total enrollment. That's 38% of the total number of children in the Pulaski school district of 3550. Let's break the numbers down.

10% of elementary school children watched Obama. If only 10% of parents opted in , what does that tell you about the parents. Sounds like good parents to me.

35% of middle school students watched Obama.

75% of high School students watched Obama.

This could tell us, more then less elementary teachers knew their students wouldn't understand Obama, a little more left leaning teachers in middle school watched Obama, and most not all teachers in Pulaski high school are left leaning liberals or the superintendent and princapal forced the high school students to watch. Did the superintendent guess at the numbers or did they go out of their way to make the news. Even though Pulaski decided to go the opt-in route, allowing middle and high school students to decide whether they wanted to view the speech, I still think some teachers opted into watching the speech contrary to what the students wanted. This also tell's us that there were at least 300 conservative or absent students attending Pulaski High School on Tuesday.

Still not sure if the Pulaski area is more liberal then conservative. Time will tell.

Steve Kagen, So

An editorial from The Green Bay Press.

"Editorial: We need reform on health care, not party bickering
September 9, 2009

As President Barack Obama addresses a rare joint session of Congress tonight, much is riding on this speech for a nation frustrated over health-care reform." Editorial: We need reform on health care, not party bickering | | Green Bay Press-Gazette
So the Green Bay Press doesn't want party bickering?

who's frustrated?

why do democrats and Steve Kagen need republicans for passing their health care bill?

So they need republicans to blame if it doesn't work?

So why don't democrats and Steve Kagen, pass it?
In Northeastern Wisconsin, we look to U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton, to work with Republicans to find common ground. As he said in Sunday’s Green Bay Press-Gazette, “Today's skyrocketing costs for health care are unsustainable.” We expect him to work in a bipartisan fashion to help bring those costs down.
So why are they telling Steve Kagen to work with republicans?
In his column, Kagen wrote: “We need reforms that guarantee if you're sick or lose your job, you can keep your health coverage. If you have health insurance, it should not cost you a fortune — and certainly not more than the mortgage payments for your home. And insurance corporations should no longer be allowed to take your money and not give it back.”
So in his article, did Steve Kagen say that he would work with republicans?
Some of Kagen’s critics complain that even after hearing sharp complaints about the pending legislation in Congress, he hasn’t changed his tune. It’s true: Kagen continues to talk about the ideas he advocated when he first ran in 2006, when he was re-elected in 2008, and in the months he has served in Congress in between. Whether you like his message or not, Kagen has been consistent all along, and Northeastern Wisconsin has now elected him twice based on that message.

So, Kagen hasn't changed his tune, "continues to talk about the ideas he advocated" but republicans should change their beliefs and work with Kagen?
Instead of finding fault with the other side — which is what most of the debating has been about — lawmakers need to reach consensus. And Kagen needs to be willing to compromise.
So lawmakers (republicans only) need to reach consensus? So, Steve Kegan will not reach across the aisle? So, the Green Bay Press will not blame Steve Kagen? So, the GBP will blame the republicans? So, what else is new?


Tea Parties Their Due

From Camille Paglia. After going to Sheboygan this past weekend it's good to see some on the left are waking up to the fact of what and who the so called mobs at tea parties really are. Liberty and Freedom is not easy but what we are doing is honest and true to the future of this country. Were finnally getting our due.

A good read.
Too late for Obama to turn it around?
By Camille Paglia

"Why did it take so long for Democrats to realize that this year's tea party and town hall uprisings were a genuine barometer of widespread public discontent and not simply a staged scenario by kooks and conspirators? First of all, too many political analysts still think that network and cable TV chat shows are the central forums of national debate. But the truly transformative political energy is coming from talk radio and the Web -- both of which Democrat-sponsored proposals have threatened to stifle, in defiance of freedom of speech guarantees in the Bill of Rights. I rarely watch TV anymore except for cooking shows, history and science documentaries, old movies and football. Hence I was blissfully free from the retching overkill that followed the deaths of Michael Jackson and Ted Kennedy -- I never saw a single minute of any of it. It was on talk radio, which I have resumed monitoring around the clock because of the healthcare fiasco, that I heard the passionate voices of callers coming directly from the town hall meetings. Hence I was alerted to the depth and intensity of national sentiment long before others who were simply watching staged, manipulated TV shows. " Too late for Obama to turn it around? | Salon

Rad Not, Just Plain Stupid

From Pine River World News
"Trapped girls updated Facebook instead of calling police
Police in Australia have voiced their concern about the growing use of social networking sites after two young girls who were trapped in a drainage well system updated their Facebook profiles instead of calling the emergency services for help.

By Bonnie Malkin in Sydney
Published: 10:45AM BST 08 Sep 2009

The girls, aged 10 and 12, used their mobile phones to access the popular website and update their statuses, alerting friends and family that they were lost in a storm drain in Adelaide's southern suburbs. Their exact status updates have not been released.

The girls were rescued at about 7.30pm on Sunday night after a friend, who was online at the time, decided to call the police. Ambulance crews wer" Trapped girls updated Facebook instead of calling police - Telegraph

I Thought Obama Speech Was A Deer In The Headlights

"- selected newswatch item -
Facebook video leads to deer shining charges
By Mike Johnson of the Journal Sentinel

Sept. 8, 2009 5:06 p.m. | Waukesha — President Barack Obama told schoolchildren in Virginia on Tuesday to be careful what they post on Facebook.

"Whatever you do, it will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life," he said.

That's advice adults Adam M. Frame and Dustin J. Porter could have used. Frame, 25, of Mukwonago, and Porter, 24, of Sullivan, found themselves in trouble with the law and state Department of Natural Resources after they posted a video on the social network Facebook showing them shining a light and shooting a gun at a deer.

That's illegal.

The case was the DNR's first-ever arrests based on a Facebook video, although it has built cases from information found on other Web sites - such as Craigslist and eBay, Conservation Warden Supervisor Rick Reed says in a news release about the case. »Read Full Article" NewsWatch - JSOnline

I see Obama to children, I see face book, then I see the deer shining story. Thought JSOnline had two article mixed up. Had to do a double look.

I'll stand by my comment, the Obama speech to school children was still a deer in the headlights.

Move along.

Replace Dave Obey

From the paper of record, The Lakeland-Times.

Congressman Obey - a man who believes in the golden rule
Joe VanDeLaarschot

We all knew these kinds of kids when we were growing up.

They were the kids that always managed to own a football so the neighborhood kids could play a game.

But they were also the ones who, if we didn't play by their rules, would throw a fit, take their ball and then run home.

Wisconsin 7th District Congressman Dave Obey has to have been one of those kind of "kids" when he was growing up because he is sure demonstrating those characteristics now." Congressman Obey - a man who believes in the golden rule

Let's see, Dave Obey didn't hold town hall meetings on health care didn't think he had to,  doesn't return letters or emails from constituents, thinks he doesn't have to, and doesn't get information that constituents ask for, again he doesn't think he has to. Obey passed the stimulus bill that created how many jobs? Wants to pass cap and tax, wants to pass government socialized medicine. Just keeps voting to take your money and freedom from you.

Is there some good conservatives to run against Obey and replace him in Washington in the 7th district?
