"My Kingdom Is Not Of This World"

Holy Friday

John 18:

36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

38 “What is truth?” retorted Pilate. With this he went out again to the Jews gathered there and said, “I find no basis for a charge against him. 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release ‘the king of the Jews’?”

John 19

28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Recall Senator Jim Holperin petitions completed and being submitted tomorrow
Madison, WI.- April,20, 2011

On Thursday, April 21, signatures of over 21,000 constituents of Wisconsin's 12th Senate District will be submitted to the Government Accountability Board in Madison to demand a recall election for the state senate seat of Jim Holperin. This total well
surpasses the 15,960 signatures required, a testimony to voter's widespread anger over Holperin's abandonment of their values
and lack of concern for fiscal responsibility in the state.

Holperin is one of the 14 AWOL Senators who left their positions at the Wisconsin state capital last February and fled to Illinois in their attempt to stop the vote on Governor Scott Walker's Budget Repair Bill. Constituents from the 12th District were both angry and embarrassed by the behavior of their elected official who chose to align himself with the unions and a small minority of union supporters, instead of the majority of voters in his district.

When Holperin refused to return to the state and perform his elected duties despite numerous requests by constituents, the
voters of the 12th Senate District immediately set to the task of gathering the needed signatures to recall him. Then, as they
faced severe winter weather and the demands of a huge rural district, they found themselves threatened, badgered, and
intimidated nearly every step of the way by the unions. At one point they were circled and nearly mobbed in a Merrill, Wisconsin,
an incident that resulted in some petitions being ripped up while others were defaced with vulgar language from a angry
union protester. (Please view a video of the occurance.

The voters of the 12th District prevailed, however, and tomorrow will successfully deliver their 21,000 plus signatures to the state capital to recall
Jim Holperin.

Dane County Young Republicans

Way to go the youth of Dane County. I just hope they are conservative and not young RINO's.

Dane County Young Republicans
to Celebrate One Year Anniversary

(Madison, WI) – The Dane County Young Republicans announced today plans for a celebration commemorating one year of sticking it to the Madison establishment.

“We‟re couldn‟t be happier to announce plans for our lavish one-year anniversary party,” said David Summers, DCYR spokesperson. “It has been a fantastic year – from our hilarious „Billionaire‟s for Obama‟ rally to our landmark victory over the screaming horde at the capitol protests, it has been a banner year for conservatism. Our steadfast activism and evangelism in an otherwise blue county has paved the way for victories in statewide and legislative contests alike.”

The Dane County Young Republicans have grown from a quiet band of outnumbered compassionate conservatives to a force for logic and reason in an otherwise irrational and confounding Dane County political landscape. In addition to holding monthly happy hours, the DCYR has held rallies for candidates and bar crawls supporting local establishments.”

“We‟re offering free beer to like-minded folks willing to stop in and help us celebrate,” Summers continued. “Do you see the union moonbats making such overtures of goodwill and fellowship? Though I can‟t blame them, as sour as they must be over their recent losing streak at the polls. We‟ll have terrific new YR tshirts available for purchase if any leftovers from the capitol protests want to switch to a winning team and demonstrate their allegiance to the powers of virtuous good.”

The one-year anniversary party will take place this Thursday, April 21 at Brocach Irish Pub on the square. Find out more

State Senate 14th, Luther Olsen Asking For My Help?

Hell must be freezing over!

I received this e mail from First I asked myself, why would someone send me, Berry Laker this e mail? Mr Olsen is from the Wisconsin 14th Senate District. Why send this to me. I'm just a little blogger from the Nicolet Forest. I think someone made a mistake. You can read my answer if I would send Jeff Weigand an e mail which I will not waste my time with because ...............

Olsen Campaign: Senator Luther Olsen's statement regarding recall petitions

Contact: Jeff Weigand

"I will continue to work on behalf of the hard working taxpayers and
middle class families in our state. The status quo in Madison of
higher taxes and more spending is hindering Wisconsin from growing the
economy and creating jobs." said Olsen (R- Ripon)

“Improving the economy and balancing the state budget will continue to
be my top priorities in Madison."

“While Wisconsin lost more than 150,000 jobs last year the previous
administration raised taxes by $4.7 billion and increased spending by
$3.6 billion."

“At a time when businesses and families are doing more with less, I
believe our government should do the same"

"I am confident the residents of the 14th Senate District will support
my efforts to balance the state budget and grow our economy."

Dear Mr Weigand,

if you represent Mr Olsen, can you answer the following question so I may or may not speak in a positive manner in my ( highly visited, highly influential, and powerful voice in northern Wisconsin) blog? Didn't that sound like I have some pull up here? He, he! Sorry, let me get back to my question.

Mr Weigand, even though Mr. Olsen is a republican and even though he now has said he is against the collective bargaining bill now sitting in the Madison court, can you please reply yes or no to the following question.

Is Mr Olsen against state or federal mandates on corn ethanol? Please reply.

If Mr. Olsen is for ethanol mandates and subsidies then I will fight him tooth and nail to get him replaced in the Wisconsin Senate for not standing up for the people of Wisconsin. One for walking away from the collective bargaining law and two for propping up corn whores in the ethanol industry.

Please answer "yes" or "no" to my question.

Paul Berry Laker,

a small non influential blogger in Northern Wisconsin.

Holperin Recall Goes Forward


From the Wausau Daily Herald

The citizen group seeking to recall state Sen. Jim Holperin said it plans to file recall petitions with state election officials this week.

Bob Rajek, chairman of the Republican Party of Lincoln County and one of the organizers of the Jim Holperin Recall Committee, said the group has collected more than the 15,960 signatures required to hold a recall election. Holperin is one of the 14 Democratic state senators who left the state to block passage of Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to end collective bargaining rights for most public employees.

Rajek said he didn’t know exactly how many signatures were collected but guessed the group had more than 20,000. He said organizers plan to hold a conference call tonight or tomorrow to decide on a delivery date for the documents.

Kim Simac, organizer of the recall committee, first announced the group’s plans on Saturday during a tea party rally in Madison.

NASCAR, We Went To Talladega Alabama

The wonderful and beautiful Mrs Berry Laker and I were married twenty three years ago this past Saturday. Let me back up two weeks. As we were watching the NASCAR race at Martinsville Mrs B asked if I wanted to go to Talladega? She was off from work and we have never been to the dega track. I said Honey, what ever you want we can do. 

So she ordered tickets, $49 a day for tickets and free camping next to the track.So Friday we started our trek to Talladega Alabama. Left at 5:00 m, hit Nashville around 6:00 that night and drove as far as Decatur Al. and stayed at the Comfort Suites.

Got up early on Saturday, at at the I Hop and headed for Birmingham. Headed east on HWY 20 and pulled into the dega track by 10:30. We pretty much threaded the needle on all the tornado's that went through the south. Our prayers are for those who lost life and damage to their belongings. Watched a GREAT Nationwide race but was not happy with the 18 wining.

Our camp site was 10 minutes from the track so all was good on not having a long walk.Meet our camping neighbours from Atlanta and Dayton Ohio. What GREAT people.

Woke up to 45 degree sleeping in the tent, had breakfast and packed for the track. What a race. My 2011 driver Jimmy Johnson wins by  2 , 1000th of a second. WOW!!!!!!!

Packed up and left at 6:00, drove to Cullman Al. and stayed the night. Got up at 6:00, ate and drove strait through Nashville, Louisville, Indy, Chicago into Wisconsin and back home around 9:00 pm.  What a GREAT weekend and what a special angel I have in Mrs B. Love you dear.

Well I talked enough, here's some picks from the weekend.

.................What kind of camp site is this? 

Now this is how to keep beer and food cold. Bring your own frig.and freezer.


Walking into to Dega. That's our seats below the FOX cameras.

.....................................Turn three. 

Looking at the Tri Oval and our seats on row 67.

Alabama mountains to the east of the track.

Hey, two guys from Pulaski Wisconsin. What great guys. lined up before the race.
