University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee officials said they had to use pepper spray Thursday to help break up a rally at the campus after some protesters became violent while trying to enter the building that contains the chancellor's office.

Sixteen people were detained and 15 were arrested during the afternoon rally, university spokesman Tom Luljak said. The rally coincided with rallies at colleges nationwide that criticized the rising cost of higher education.

This better not have been my three children at the protests! I now have three adults attending UWM. I give them more credit than these wackos!

Big News In Green Bay

This is bigger and better news for Green Bay then buying a Zippo roller coaster for 3 million dollars.
From the Green Bay Press
"Actor Harrison Ford had dinner Wednesday night in downtown Green Bay, where he dropped in unannounced at the Republic Chophouse, 218 N. Adams St."

Maybe Ford was in town to be a part of the renaming ceremony for the Roller coaster. My thought is Green Bay and Schmidt must be out of his mind to spend 3 mil on a roller coaster? Is Green Bay running a surplus on their budgets?

Will Kagen Listen To The Appleton P C ?

Looks like the Appleton PC is telling Congressman Steve Kagen what to do with Charlie Rangel's money. Come on, it's only $21,000! But no, Steve Kagen is an ethical person.
From the Appleton Post Crescent.

"Kagen said Wednesday he has no intention of returning the money. But, if only from a public relations standpoint, it makes more sense for him to get rid of it, rather than continue to have this be a point of attack."
Editorial: Money's not worth hassle for Kagen | | Appleton Post-Crescent

Good try PC, save his REAR END with a pr ploy. But really, Kagen has to keep the money. He will need every dollar he has in the upcoming election. On second thought, he can retire and keep the money in his own pocket. There you go Steve, that's a GREAT idea, DROP OUT OF THE RACE and go take care of your patients.

Compound Update.

We finally completed the move to the northern compound. A little cleaning at the Pulaski bunker (apartment) and we are out of there. Here's my update to my four followers to my blog.
Concerning the blog.
Since for the time being we only have dial up it looks like I will no longer post You tubes or video. It takes too long to down load to even watch them so no videos. The customer service rep ( Joey) from CenturyLink told me the nearest DSL line is 37. 000 feet from the compound. That's seven miles away. My gov and congressman spends millions of dollars for libraries that already have high speed internet and people like me are left out in the cold. Nothing like crapping on the people that really need the help. Joey made no promises but I have to commend Centurylink for at least following up on my internet problems. Thank you Joey for the follow through, tell your boss you need a raise for your work.
To get some speed out of my computer I had to delete all documents, pictures, downloads and any programs I don't use on my PC. It's still slow but it's better then before. It was our choice to move here and we will just have to live with what we have. Satellite internet was just too expensive right now so unless we win the lottery were stuck with dial up. Since we are deep in the Nicolet that might not even work.

Been growing a beard for the last three weeks. I'm 53 going on 54 and never had one in my life. Interesting look. It was fun while it lasted but the shaver comes out next week.
It was early morning and seen three deer walk through the land behind the compound. This is truly God's country when it comes to wildlife. Deer, turkeys, blue jays, woodpeckers and even a wolf are truly a sight that made the move well worth it. Can't wait till spring and summer with black bear.
We are 90% completed on reinforcing the shelter. We now have the washer and dryer hooked up so I can now have cleaner fatigues.

As Dad 29 would say, "Buy More Ammo", I picked up some but need pick up at least a 1000 more rounds. Need cash and will look at buying over the internet.
All terrain armored utility vehicle , will have to wait till summer to purchase. Low on funds.
Currently out of work. Because of the move to northern Wisconsin , it was not feasible logistically to keep that job. I do want to thank my old boss (Sue) and all the people I worked with. It was a pleasure that I truly enjoyed. Have had a couple of leads and making the trek to Crivits to scout out employment there. Thought I had one but deal fell through. Thank God Mrs B is keeping us above water. Not worried because of my sales, supervision, management and work ethic, I will find something. Blogging doesn't pay money.
To all, have a GREAT week, remember,
Success - The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will. Vincent T. Lombardi

you can get more with honey then you can with vinegar,

the glass is always half full and not half empty,

inspect what you expect,

work hard, study hard, play hard,


If you tell your mind you want something, your mind will get it for you. Remember though, if you tell your mind you want something bad , your mind will get that for you also. Be careful what you ask for. Keep it positive.

The five most important things in my life and always in this order
1) my God,
2) my wife,
3)my family,
5)everything else.
Have a GREAT day.

Kagen Takes A Stand On Dirty Money

From the Green Bay Press about DIRTY MONEY Steve Kagen took from Charlie Rsngel.
""No amount of money will ever be able to affect my vote, for I only have the best interests of my patients and my constituents in mind," said Kagen, an allergist."
Steve Kagen gets heat over campaign donation | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

Need to add this, Mr Kagen, everyone has a price. Yours must of been $21,000.

I would hope we see this story in the upcoming campaign.
At least 17 Democrats have returned Rangel's money, according to news reports.
By the way, I thought Kagen is no longer a practicing MD? He still has patients?

What Is Jim Doyle Doing

Back on February 18th, the Green Bay Press reports on the health care in Menominee County.
"Menominee County ranked as Wisconsin's worst in University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute health study

By LARRY BIVINS • Press-Gazette Washington Bureau, • February 18, 2010 " Menominee County ranked as Wisconsin's worst in University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute health study | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

At the bottom of the overall state ranking is Menominee County, which also ranks last in the factors that influence the quality of health, such as personal habits, clinical care, social and economic measures and the environment.

Today I read what Diamond Jim Doyle gave to Menominee County last week.
From the
Shawano Leader.

Doyle presents Menominee with $4.3 million
By Tim Ryan, Leader Reporter

KESHENA — Gov. Jim Doyle visited the Menominee Indian Reservation Friday to award the tribe with $4.3 million in stimulus funding for its new transit center.

The event at the Cultural Center at College of Menominee Nation came a year to the day since President Barack Obama signed the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act into law.

“This is a really well-thought out transit plan,” Doyle said. “It’s designed to reflect what the needs of the people are.”

So people in Menominee County are sick or might be dying from lack of health care and Doyle gives them $4.3 mil for transit?

Money for transit and not for health care?

My God, where is the outrage?

No Pay Off Here, Move On

WEAC tops lobbyist spending list - JSOnline
The Wisconsin Education Association Council spent nearly twice as much as any other organization to lobby lawmakers in 2009, according to the Government Accountability Board.

The state's largest teachers union reported spending more than $1.5 million and 7,239 hours lobbying, almost twice as much as the Wisconsin Insurance Alliance, which spent the second-highest amount on lobbying in the state.

And you wonder why the school systems are

As Dad 29 would say, nothing here, move on.
