As Owen will say at B & S

Off Duty.

Time to head to the compound and put up the barricade to the below ground receptacle. May even do field reconnaissance some time this weekend.

Please leave comments but they will not be posted till Monday night.

Picture is a facsimile of compound backyard.

Welcome Allison Jaslow

Around the Marketplace - People Watch for Jan. 13

Allison, my name is Berry Laker and I love to blog about the ineptness and stupidity of your new boss Congressman Steve Kagen. Not sure if you know, I am a proud conservative, "TEA Party" member of Wisconsin's 8th district. Just a few questions for you. 1) does your boss know how to tell time, link from 2006 and JSOnline?
2) does your boss ever read the bills he votes for?

3) does your boss always take orders from Nancy Pelosi?

4) does your boss represent his constituents or just his campaign donors?
5) is your boss that clueless when it comes to health care reform?
6) will your boss retire from congress before the November election?

I will have more questions in the future bit just wanted to say hi and best of luck for accepting your new baby sitting position for our congressman for the 8th district of Wisconsin. P. S., I am moving but will still be in the 8th district. I look forward to seeing your progress in your new job.

Berry Laker

Update10:00am - Let me apologize to Kate and Eric for not welcoming you. We here in the 8th wish you the best of luck trying to keep your new boss focused and on message. You have your hands full. GOOD LUCK!

Another Feingold Hostile (Tea Party) Crowd

Russ seems to be meeting a lot of those evil tea party people here in Wisconsin. Seems also the Shawano Leader, kudos, is reporting the news in Wisconsin.

From the
Shawano Leader.

"Feingold meeting participants vocal on health care
By Tim Ryan, Leader Reporter

Area residents attending U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold’s listening session in Shawano County Wednesday were often skeptical and occasionally hostile about the Senate’s recently passed health care reform bill, which Feingold supported"

OH NO Russ, a H O S T I L E crowd?

Even so, the forum was more orderly than many similar town hall sessions on health care across the country sometimes marked by shouting matches and unruly verbal confrontations.

Opponents of the Senate bill — which is now in committee being reconciled with the House version — were clearly in the majority Wednesday, often punctuating Feingold’s comments with grumbling, scoffing and groaning.

Please, no G R U M B L I N G, S C O F F I N G, and G R O A N I N G!

But the Wisconsin Democrat sought to assure residents they would be more likely to support the bill if they knew what was in it.

“When you hear more about the bill, I think you’re going to be really surprised by some of these things,” Feingold said.

Does he think they are a bunch of dumb asses? Russ, they know more what's in the bill then you do!

Feingold also disputed polls some audience members cited showing most Americans are opposed to the health care reform plan, saying the opposition includes some who never wanted any kind of a bill and liberals who believe the bill doesn’t go far enough.

“This bill is not the government takeover of health care that many people wanted,” he said. “Those who wanted the government system lost. This bill is kind of middle of the road.”

Many in attendance, however, remained unconvinced.

Russ, they don't believe your B S
"I think everybody in this room would agree that health insurance reform of some sort is needed. But there’s a lot of people in this room that say the way we’re going about health insurance reform is not the way to do it,” said Bill Meyer.

“There’ve been votes bought, there’s been things done behind closed doors, deals that have come about with the drug companies,” Meyer said. “Why do we have to pass a bad bill that has some good things?”

Feingold said there are some things in the bill he doesn’t like, but the good outweighs the bad.

Will somebody, anyone run against Russ on 2010?
Among the good, he said, is closure of the so-called doughnut hole — a gap in Medicare prescription drug coverage.

“It will create a 10-year process where it does get filled and, immediately, there will be a $500 credit as well as a 50 percent reduction in all medicines,” Feingold said. “This is a huge thing for every single senior in America. Of course you don’t hear about that on Fox News.”

Russ, 10 year process, sure, starting in 2014?

What about Nebraska? Russ, what about Paul Ryans proposal? From CATO

The comment was met by a round of dismissive groaning from the crowd.

There goes those evil right wing nuts in the crowd.

Several audience members questioned the constitutionality of the proposed legislation.
Come on Russ, what do you think?
Feingold said there may be only one questionable aspect — an individual mandate for people to buy insurance.

“I’m not absolutely sure this (Supreme) Court will say it’s OK,” he said. “If that’s true, the authors of this bill were pretty stupid because the bill’s going to get struck down.”

Feingold said he believed the bill is constitutional, adding he would not have voted for it otherwise.

“The Constitution is absolutely at the core of this, and if there’s anything unconstitutional, I think it would be appropriate for the Supreme Court to strike it down,” he said.
But Russ, you voted for this!
Some raised question about the behind the scenes deal-making involved in the process.

“Why were some of these decisions made on weekends, at late hours and behind closed doors,” said Eileen Spittlemeister, to a round of applause from the rest of the crowd.

Feingold said a lack of transparency is an unfortunate and long-standing part of all law making and one which needs to change. However, he said, several key decisions were made publicly.
Russ, how many is "several"?
“Right out in the open under this bill, in the Senate Finance Committee, televised, we eliminated the ability of insurance companies to deny coverage to anyone who has a pre-existing condition,” he said.
Sure, sure Russ, that's nice to know!
Later, in reassuring a resident the bill would deny health care coverage to illegal immigrants, he noted that amendment, too, was passed in an open meeting of the Senate Finance Committee.
How can Russ Feingold lie to a constituent? It doesn't say it won't cover illegals! Good to the people who attended the meeting in Shawano. Will T T or Paul Ryan run against Feingold?

Sorry for the look of the post, must be having logistic problems from blogger, tried to fix and it didn't happen.

Can We Say Gestapo

From e News Park Forest. Looks like President Obama is slowly taking over this country. Hope and change to a national police force!

"President Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors
Monday, 11 January 2010
Washington, D.C.--(ENEWSPF)--January 11, 2010. The President today signed an Executive Order establishing a Council of Governors to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State Governments to protect our Nation against all types of hazards. When appointed, the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities."
President Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors

What will this lead to? Can we say G E S T A P O

"The Geheime Staatspolizei (German for Secret State Police, abbreviated “Gestapo”) was formally organized after the Nazis seized power in 1933. Hermann Göring, the Prussian minister of the interior, detached the espionage and political units of the Prussian police. And staffed them with thousands of Nazis. Göring became the commander of this new force on April 26, 1933. At the same time that Goring was organzing the Gestapo, Heinrich Himmler was directing the SS (Schutzstaffel, German for “Protective Echelon”), Hitler's elite paramilitary corps. In April 1936, he was given command of the Gestapo as well, integrating all of Germany's police units under Himmler.

Later in 1936, the Gestapo was merged with the Kriminalpolizei (or “Kripo,” German for Criminal Police). The newly integrated unit was the called the Sicherheitspolizei (or “Sipo,” German for Secret Police). In 1939, during the reorganization of the German armies, the Sipo was joined with an intelligence branch of the military known as the Sicherheitsdienst (“SD,” meaning Security Service). After this merger, the Sipo became known as the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (“RSHA,” meaning Reich Security Central Office), and was headed by Reinhard Heydrich. Because of these frequent changes, the functions of the Gestapo became blurred, and often overlapped with those of the other branches of the German forces. " The Gestapo

What will he do next? As Dad 29 say's"
