New Diet Pepsi

Though we have yet to try the new Diet Pepsi, we wonder if the taste has changed.

Diet Pepsi's move to replace its artificial sweetener -- from aspartame to sucralose -- in August has prompted a flurry of negative comments online from customers who aren't big fans of the new taste, but it's not the first time a soda company has taken a risk by making a change to its recipe.

Aspartame, also found in NutraSweet and Equal, has been a source of controversy, even though studies have yet to link the artificial sweetener to negative health effects in humans.

Have you tried new Pepsi? How does it taste?

What Is Scott Walker Waiting For

 What is Wisconsin Governor waiting for? Who is Scott Walker trying to impress? The Media? The democrats?

WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL STOUGHTON — Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday he may appoint a new justice to the state Supreme Court this week.

Walker said he interviewed the three applicants on Wednesday for an opening on the state’s highest court after the death of Justice N. Patrick Crooks on Sept. 21. 

Read more at the Green Bay Press Gazette.

First, former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle would of appointed someone with in days of the Justice being buried. And the media would be praising Doyle for making the decision so fast and appointing a liberal left judge that he wanted. Oh, that's right, Doyle appointed Louis B. Butler back in2004.

And why is Walker interviewing two other people for the opening on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Just appoint Rebecca Bradley. What is he waiting for?

Walker screwed up his presidential aspirations and now looks like he is messing up being Governor of Wisconsin.

As Walker has told everyone, he was elected three times in four years. The people who put him in office want him to do what they elected him to do.

How shall we say this, Gov. grow a pair or crap and get off the pot!!!!!!

Wisconsin 8th Rep. Ribble Showing True Colors

 This is no surprise, yaaaaaawwwwwwwnnnnnnn.

WASHINGTON – Rep. Reid Ribble, R-Sherwood, has dropped out of the secretive Freedom Caucus, the conservative Republican group that upended the election Thursday for House speaker.

Ribble has always been more moderate than many of the caucus’s members. He voted to fund the government in 2013 without requiring changes to the Affordable Care Act, something more conservative members refused to do, triggering a government shutdown.
Full Story from Green Bay Press Gazette.

First, as the article states, Ribble is from Sherwood Wisconsin. Remember when Ribble was running for congress. He gave a DePere address, an apartment while his wife lived at his home in Sherwood. We called it at the time, he was and will always be a CARPETBAGGER.

Second, when was Ribble ever conservative? Ribble, more moderate, pleeeeeeaaaaaasssssseeeee!

He has been a RINO ( for those in Pleasant Valley, RINO stands for Republican In Name Only) since he was elected. Ribble and other elites like Boehner and McConnell in Washington is why we are in the trouble we are in. Ribble would rather cozy up with liberal democrats than straighten out the trouble with this country. It is too bad the voters of the 8th Congressional District are not up to speed on Ribble's charlatans ways.

The problem we the voters have is, Ribble was and will always be a RINO! He will keep getting more campaign money from the Washington elites. Ribble leaving the Freedom Caucus is not a surprise.

Ribble is showing his true colors. 

What do you think?

AFT Dropping Big Bucks On Politics/Clintons

 A whole lot of union member dues going to politics on the left. Oh, to the Clinton's too!

The 2015 American Federation of Teachers annual report shows a left-wing political machine humming on all cylinders — with teachers buying the gas.

For the fiscal year ending June 30, the union reported $37.6 million in political activity and lobbying expenditures, a $12.7 million increase from the previous year.

Even more political spending was tucked away elsewhere in AFT’s annual U.S. Department of Labor filing, reported as “Contributions, Gifts and Grants,” “General Overhead” or “Representational Activities.”

AFT paid union president Randi Weingarten, one of the nation’s most prominent “progressive” activists, a total of $497,118. The union reported only 2 percent of her time as political activity.

AFT donated $250,000 to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation in February, $125,000 to Clinton Global Initiative in April and another $125,000 to Clinton Global Initiative in May. In December, AFT paid Clinton-allied opposition research group American Bridge 21st Century $100,000. 


How long can the AFT keep shelling out this kind of money to the left and the Clinton's? Do they really have an endless stream to dump this kind of cash on democrats and Hillary?

McDonalds All Day Breakfast Not What You Think

If you go to McDonald's and they are now serving all day breakfast items, shouldn't you have the choice of their morning breakfast menu? 

The long-awaited menu for breakfast fans will vary by location. For those who love McGriddle sandwiches, you're out of luck. That item isn't a part of the all-day breakfast menu in any markets, so you'll be skipping on those 450 to 570 calories. Bagel sandwiches, cinnamon melts and "Big Breakfast" platters aren't included in the all-day menu either. 

See more at ABC News.

Is this false advertising? If they say all day breakfast, shouldn't they offer all their breakfast items? Shouldn't they advertise limited breakfast items served all day? What would Ray Kroc say or do?

Where's my bagel steak and onions sandwich?

Guess we go to Hardee's or Burger King for breakfast.

U.S. Employment For July, August Revied Down

 Economy booming????????????????????????????????????

Something you didn't hear or see in the main stream media last week.

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised from +245,000 to +223,000, and the change for August was revised from +173,000 to +136,000. With these revisions, employment gains in July and August combined were 59,000 less than previously reported. Over the past 3 months, job gains have averaged 167,000 per month.

Nothing here, move along.

Hillary, "I Didn't Do It, Nobody Saw Me Do It, There's No Way You Can Prove Anything"

 Interesting, Hillary Clinton is trying to act just like Bart Simpson about Benghazi.

Two questions.

In a nationally televised New Hampshire town hall event broadcast on NBC’s “Today,” Clinton accused Republicans of exploiting the deaths of four Americans in the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, to score political points against her, crowed about her national and early-voting state polling leads and made impassioned liberal arguments for gun control and income equality.
 Clinton’s strongest moment came when she was angered by a suggestion from co-anchor Savannah Guthrie that if the roles were reversed, she would investigate a member of the Republican administration for using a personal email account and server.

 “I would never have done that,” Clinton shot back. “Look at the situation they chose to exploit to go after me for political reasons, the death of four Americans in Benghazi. I knew [Ambassador Christopher Stevens]. I identified him. I asked him to go there. I asked the president to nominate him.” I identified him",

Read more at The Hill.

One, no she wouldn't have gone after a republican if they had their own server, etc., etc., she would have other democrats do her dirty work.

Two, what did she mean by "I identified him"? about  Ambassador Christopher Stevens?Did she ID the body?

Republican Candidate For More Green Energy Mandates


Ohio lawmakers looking to extend a freeze on state “green energy” mandates will have to find a way past Gov. John Kasich.

Kasich immediately shot down as “unacceptable” a legislative study committee’s Wednesday recommendation the state extend its current two-year mandate freeze indefinitely.

When Kasich signed Senate Bill 310 last year, he agreed to pause the phase-in of energy efficiency and alternative electricity generation mandates adopted in 2008 — and to create the Energy Mandates Study Committee, whose guidance he seems set on ignoring.

The governor’s public opposition to an extended freeze isn’t the only sign he’ll fight for increased mandates. Kasich reportedly threatened to veto a version of SB 310 that would have locked the mandates at 2014 levels.

More at Ohio Watchdog.

If this is his stance on green energy, what will he want if elected president?

Another reason for not Kasich in 2016.  

UW Oshkosh Students Need Construction 101

Seems the students building this house for World Habitat Day forgot to use treated lumber for the bottom of the house.

Following from UW Oshkosh Twitter.

Regular lumber will rot from moisture in contact with the ground or cement.

As some friends would always say, any job, do it right or don't do it at all. Who was guiding these students on the construction? Unless the house will be inside another house.

Just trying to help.

Hillary, Is There Trouble In Paradise

There seems to be some unrest towards Hillary Clinton. The teachers union members are not the only ones questioning following Hillary over the cliff.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is a dear friend of a fiery teachers union leader, she speaks out against the bombardment of standardized testing that dismays educators, and she never misses a chance to say how enamored she is with those who teach.

Many teachers are less enamored with her, however.

One of the most hotly debated issues among rank-and-file educators this week is whether Clinton deserves their support. Many are saying no — or at least, not yet — and calling upon their state leaders to resist a move by the president of the union representing 3 million teachers to endorse Clinton.

Afghan Strike, Children, Doctors Killed, "Nothing Here, Move Along"

The story about an airstrike by US / NATO forces. Doctors and children killed!

Where's the outrage?

U.S. officials have launched an investigation after 12 local staff members of Doctors Without Borders and at least seven patients, three of them children, were killed after an explosion near their hospital in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz that may have been caused by a nearby airstrike.

 In a statement, the international charity said the "sustained bombing" took place Saturday at 2:10 a.m local time. Afghan forces backed by U.S. airstrikes have been fighting to dislodge Taliban insurgents who overran Kunduz on Monday.

Fox News.

What would the news cycle look like if the President was Carson, Cruz or Fiorina. Would the left be calling for war crime investigations? The president should resign? Would there be massive protests in front of the White House?

Of course all from above and more would be true. But with a democrat president, chirp, chirp, silence, "nothing here move along" from the media across the land.
