Scuttlebutt I heard at a private college in the Milwaukee suburbs that had some ties to Marquette was his grades were so low he couldn't possibly reach the 2.0 GPA required to graduate. There was no point to come back for the final year.
Republican Ron Kramer was caught groping two women during a fund raiser in Washington D.C. He's entered a "treatment" program and refusing to respond to media. Unnamed state GOP leaders are telling media off the record they want him to resign as his offences are pretty atrocious. In other words it's another black eye for Gov. Scott Walker, self-appointed presidential candidate. E-mails from campaign irregularities were released a few days ago. They are loaded with messages disparaging the GOP lieutenant governor and jokes about minorities lead to one Walker staffer to be fired this week. GOP attempts to end a another investigation of illegal Walker campaign funds are being turned down by the courts.
The report from the Department of Silly Wars, previously called the Department of Defense, had it behind Iraq and Afghanistan in silliness so they went there.
There's no hunting license needed to hunt Texans and no bag limit.
I own JNJ the makers of Imodium, Proctor & Gamble makers of Charmin and Pepto-Bismol, and Kimberly-Clark makers of several toilet paper brands. Let the runs begin!
Racine is WE Energy territory so its losing customers. S C Johnson is now claiming letting lose 300 employees and maybe up to 400. WHERE THE JOBS YOU PROMISED, WALKER?
The budget surplus is a projection by economists, in the real world you call them fantasy footballers. Remember when Walker claimed painter's tape did $7.5 million in damage to the Capitol polished granite? Do you really trust him to say there is a surplus? You better not check out the state bond debt, it's at a all time high and under a watch from the ratings agencies meaning possible downgrade.
And where are the jobs he promised? My niece and her husband left Wisconsin because they couldn't find work as vet tech and airplane mechanic. I'm leaving soon for Salt Lake, IT jobs flooding out of Wisconsin, Kimberly-Clark, WPS insurance, American Family, General Casualty all out sourced under Walker watch. Heck, even the retinal researchers at the UW Med School, all 68, have gone to greener pastures. JC Penny shutting five Wisconsin stores, Kmart 3, some 2,700 at the New Page paper plant are waiting for their pink slips after recent ownership change. While the nation has had a reduction in 1% in electrical power demand, Wisconsin's demand is off 5.5%.
Somebody take issue with these facts, bet there will be just the usual Republican name calling. You know, all hat, no cattle.
It also makes sense for suicides. Let your family get a good nights sleep because they have to clean up the mess in the morning (or whenever they get around to it). Of course the family dog could clean it before they found it if a silencer is used, too.
Why do we need 11 aircraft carriers? The Brits found out large ships are easy targets for even budget French missiles in the Falklands. Could be why the Brits only remaining carrier is up for sale to scrapyards. When Obama was rattling the saber by putting a naval strike force together against Syria just before they came clean about chemical weapons there were no carriers in the force. Carriers are easy pickins' for any Assad's missiles. Sinking one of those carrier dinosaurs would blacken the eye of US Navy.
Oh, yeah, the Chinese have a carrier. Scary! Well, its an old Russian hulk slapped together as the Russian empire was falling apart and had been moored unpainted for decades in the Black Sea. Some marine engineers think the hull is to weak for sea voyages hence you may notice the Chinese take it out of port only on nice days and everyone wears a life preserver.
Star Wars! Are you still waiting for all those Chinese missiles to come flying through Reagan's Window Of Vulnerability? I suppose you have to worry about something waiting in your fox hole on Malibu for all those Viet Cong that are going to be coming ashore. A little hint, a third of all US federal debt is owned by the Chinese. Don't try to figure it out why they would through away a couple of trillion dollars of their own money by nuking it and not to think of the radiation that would fall back on themselves, thinking would only hurt your head.
Being in deep seclusion after his disastrous presidency the public would be unaware of his presence on the plane. No doubt he used a fake passport as Malaysia was the first country to bring charges against Bush for crimes against humanity. The pilots of MH370 were forced to turn control over to Bush, who ducked out of Nam flying safely in the Texas National Guard. Being the village it he turned off the tracking systems trying to find his favorite hick radio station. Meanwhile he turned the controls over to his wife, a notoriously bad driver with no flying experience. It was a disaster in the making.
10 employees at the WPS Pulliam electrical plant will be jobless with the closing of two boilers. The lost electrical generation will be replaced by Manitoba Hydro under contracts going out to 2027. Let's take a moment and applaud the late Ronald Reagan for ending federal renewable energy research when he was president. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't be sending our dollars to Canada for power. Let's give Ron's want-to-be, Scott Walker a shout out. All together now, "Scott Walker, where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
Aging infrastructure. Thank Ronald Reagan for cutting federal dollars to local governments for public projects while he forked the bucks to his thousand ship Navy, Star Wars, B-1, etc., etc. etc. As the education president he didn't open any new med, dental or nursing schools. Hence are present 10,000 doctor shortage and high medical bills.
Dog of a stock! I know one BBT employee, he's in a commercial mortgage outfit BBT acquired. Pure jerk named Lund, he speculated on a piece of land across the street from me and we warned him it was a illegally filled in pond so it wasn't suitable for building. He went in added rip rap, more illegal fill and the city nixed his scheme to divide it into four residential lots. I goad the city engineering department with fishing reports from Lake Lund from the flood going into the neighbors yards from his mess.
Took advantage of the high, over priced in my opinion, and sold after 12 years of patience. Made money on paper in the pocket change range, but I lost money figuring in inflation. Never say never, but I won't be back. Already figuring out how much of it to reinvest in blue chips like Proctor & Gamble, Duke Energy, Johnson & Johnson, etc. and if I should be patient and wait for dips or invest right away for dividend reinvestment.
Ice machine production is being moved to Mexico and possibly China. The company is saying the statistic of up the 40% of production may come from outside the US gives the hint more job cuts are in the works. All together now, "Scott Walker, where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
Okay, all together everybody, "Scott Walker, where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
MIDDLETON, Wis. -
American Superconductor says it will close its Middleton plant by the end of the year and transfer the work to its headquarters in Massachusetts.
The plant makes voltage regulation and control devices for use in the electric transmission grid. The company declined to say how many employees will be affected by the closure. But, Madison Gas and Electric's directory lists 100 employees at the Middleton plant.
The State Journal reported the company's operations in New Berlin will not be affected at the present.
The Norfolk base covers more than 6,000 acres and is the home port for 64 ships sucking up billions of taxpayer dollars better used for medical research, adding medical schools to address the 10,000 shortage of M.D.s, road and bridge improvements, housing the growing population of the elderly, paying down federal government debt and national parks. Meanwhile, the 64 ships sit in port or go around in circles at sea giving the sailors time to play with themselves while Putin grabs land and atrocities are committed daily in Syria,
Hutchinson Tech is moving hard drive production to Thailand. No idea when the 480 remaining Hutchinson employees in Eau Claire will be given the pink slips. Gee, aren't these high tech jobs and tech is the future? All together now, "Scott Walker where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
