WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Even with anti-incumbent sentiment on the rise among voters, Kagen Tuesday dismissed the idea his race would be affected.
“Anger leads to anarchy, and anarchy to poverty for everyone. Take a look south of our border, you’ll see what anarchy brings you. Thousands of people being murdered, no rule of law. I believe in the rule of the law, not the rule of the jungle,” Kagen said.
Sounds like Rep. Kagan wants to deport Tea Partiers to Mexico.
Though the economic environment of the region, state and nation has taken a dive the past year, that didn't mean the time wasn't right.
That was the feeling of Gregg Walker and his wife, Kim, the owners of Walker Communications LLC, when they announced this week that they will purchase The Rhinelander Daily News effective Sept. 30.

Wonder if the school board needs her expertise to borrow more money? Get more taxpayers money from Washington or it's good to have a lawyer on the board in case they run into a legal situation. Wonder if all the taxpayers were in the loop on the appointment? Oh sorry the tax payers were not involved. It was the teachers union who had to give their blessing.
Like I said the P G was vague on the news report and I just thought, who is she?

The Pulaski Community School District is seeking a 2 percent increase in the levy for the 2010-11 school year.
Residents attending the meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 15 will be asked to vote on the increase from $13,635,965 to $13,926,276.
The general fund budget, which is the budget that contains most of the district’s revenues and expenditures, shows a slight increase of 3.1 percent.
Because property values in the district are not projected to increase and may actually decrease, the small increase in the total levy may yield a tax rate increase somewhere between 2 to 4 percent, according to superintendent Dr. Mel Lightner.
“With a normal property growth rate increase we would have seen a tax rate decrease,” he said. “However, since there may be a property value decrease, the small levy increase will produce a small tax rate increase.”
Residents of the Pulaski Community School District are invited to attend the annual meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Ripley Performing Arts Center in Pulaski High School.
“As challenging as this year’s budget was to balance, the forecast for next year and beyond is even more challenging,” Lightner said. “The Pulaski Community School District does a great job educating children and serving the community, however, it looks like tough choices will have to be made in the future. The state of Wisconsin projected a substantial budget deficit for the next two years. They will most likely give less money to school districts.”
For the 2009-10 and 2010-11 school year, the state reduced the amount each school district could raise in revenue. This has caused most school districts to make cuts in personnel and programs. The Pulaski Community School District balanced the budget by instituting employee layoffs, reducing hours, reducing benefits and freezing administrator salaries.
“Tough decisions had to be made in order to balance the budget. We were able to make cuts without raising class sizes or cutting programs for our students,’ said Dr. Lightner.
At the annual meeting, the 2010-2011 district budget will be presented, and various funds within the overall budget will be explained. This meeting offers an opportunity for residents to learn how the district allocates the money it receives from federal, state and local sources.

At its meeting Sept. 8, the Suring School Board cited too much red tape and too little funding when it rejected the federal government’s recent gift to the district.
The district was awarded $183 in Federal Education Job Act Fund money to rehire staff, but board members voted to reject the gift and send a letter expressing their disappointment in how the money was distributed.
The state allocated funds based on the school aid formula, which takes into account land values, but doesn’t favor land-rich districts like Suring. Because of the high value of its resort properties, Suring Schools receive more of their operating revenues from taxpayers than through state aid.
This is the opposite of the neighboring school district in Gillett, which relies heavily on state aids. The Gillett School District approved two full-time and one part-time staff position with the $127,540 it was allotted from the Federal Education Job Act Fund.
Board members complained that while neighboring districts received six-digit awards, they received less than $200 — an amount that wouldn’t even cover the staff time to file the nine reports required by the government, if the gift were accepted.
The only one who is shocked about these results is the establishment. The American people are fed up with business as usual in both parties. We are not going to take the scraps from the table anymore. We want our Republic back. You can either get on board or be left behind.
PULASKI — A 17-year-old Pulaski High School student is facing disciplinary action and possible court fines after he allegedly streaked across the high school football field during a varsity game Friday night, authorities said Monday.
"The Republican Party has lost its way," O'Donnell said. "They get behind candidates like my opponent who don't even support the Republican platform, who continue to support the Democrats' agenda, lock-step-and-barrel."
Belittling the honorable contribution of military men and women who don't happen to be in the infantry is bad enough.
I do live just a couple miles outside the district. I have stated this from the beginning of my campaign and who knows, with all the gerrymandering that goes on I may be smack dab in the middle of the 8th district after the next census. As a lifelong Fox Valley resident I have lived in and out of the 8th district several times. As you may know the southern border changes a lot. (At one time it was as far north as Green Bay)So he says, "the U.S. Constitution isn't concerned where I sleep at night I think the voters might not be concerned either." Huh!
I grew up in the 8th district, went to high school in the district, my business is in the district, most of my work and projects are in the district, I coached high school volleyball for 20 years in the district. As a lifelong resident of this area, I know this district and the issues facing it, and I have a vision for Wisconsin and America that I believe matches this district's values. I have the background and roots in this district that makes me exceptionally qualified to serve the residents of District 8 and that is what I will do each and every day in Congress.
Additionally, if the U.S. Constitution isn't concerned where I sleep at night I think the voters might not be concerned either. Since you are a conservative, I am sure that you appreciate the U.S. Constitution’s take on this and know that there is no requirement to live in a district - just the state. Let's not get distracted from seeing the big picture issues facing all Americans. The economy, jobs, taxes, two ongoing wars, etc, etc. Hopefully this answer satisfies your concern about where I sleep at night. Would it now make a difference if I choose to move to Kaukauna where my business is? Would the accusations go away or be worse? Unlike many candidates I have been honest and forth coming about where I live instead of renting an apartment or living in a hotel as some others did. In fact I have lived in the Fox Valley all of my life and made my career there and since Congressman Kagen seems so out of touch with what this country, state and district needs I am happy to campaign for real change.
Half a dozen students from Horlick High School showed up to protest. One teen criticized the tea party's politics as too right-wing.
