  • Iron Mountain Rock Company fired 58 from their frac sand mine in Bloomer. Gee, Klappa, you can't find enough people to sell electricity to, now you're down 58 plus the mine. There's some bald face lies about they well be hired back in 6 months, but astute investors are laughing into their pillows. There is no place to go with the oil now much less all the Saudi crude pumping record amounts. If Iran starts entering the world market again, oh boy!
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
    Unemployed, you need to follow every edition of Wisconsin Job Loss Today to aid you in your job hunting. No need to look for work where it isn't.

  • WE Energy can't sell all the electricity its generating. Poor planning, eh Klappa? Better call your bud, Scotty Walker, and get the Wisconsin economy growing. Anywho, Klappa is filing a complaint against Alliant Energy building an environmentally friendly gas plant next to their existing Beloit plant. Alliant needs to generate more electricity as it's closing its ancient, coal burner Cassville plant and one of it coal boilers in Sheboygan.
    Now Klappa is insisting to the Public Service Commission Alliant should be forced to buy WE Energy over capacity. So much for the free market system, eh, Mein Fuhrer Klappa? WE shareholders look for legal fees among the expenses because Alliant is going to sue as there are no laws to force Alliant to buy power from WE Energy. Alliant will win and WE Energy is going to have to pay Alliant legal bills, too, and any costs delaying the Beloit project. If the judge throws in punitive damages there is no limit to what WE Energy will lose. Wolters, head of Madison G&E, is an attorney, is enjoying this plunder with a hearty laugh.
    All together now, let's clap our knees with our hands, too, "Scotty Walker, where are you and the 250,00 you promised?"

  • What's up Scotty? You've been taunting how you're created high paying welding jobs and they're getting laid off. Hey, what happened to that child molester, welder friend of yours you brought to the state capital so you could applaud him? Have fun looking for jobs former Allis Roller employees now jobless under Walker's watch.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
    Did you catch Alliant Energy's revenue was down? Shades of WE Energy's progressive revenue declines. lol, Great job with the economy Walker!

  • Another demo of Klappa's incompetence. Right after the merger his team figures it out the cost is almost twice what Schrock the Incompetent and his tribe was figuring. Think Illinois is going to have the customers foot the bill? Not likely, pay up WE Energy shareholders. $8 billion is a whole lot of money!

    I'm hitting the silk too, going to reinvest in Johnson & Johnson. Slow grower, but ultra-safe and reliable 6-7% annual dividend grower on a 3% dividend.

    Sure does. It's not just a haircut it's scalping.

    Doesn't take a genius to figure it out watching the Wisconsin economic numbers going south. Surprising the analists in New York can't figure it out, maybe they should hire a college grad, eh, Wisconsin? Revenue fell 5% year to year, residential down 5% and commerical/industrial usage down 1.4%.
    Excuse me, I'm feel a dire need to return to my pillow to laugh in it at WEC investors.

  • 83 full time staffers of the UW two year campus system are now unemployed. No faculty, just staff. Frankly, this haircut is long over due. There are more library administrators in the two year system than books in the tiny, seldom used libraries.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"

  • Both Bureau of Labor Statistics (Feds) and Dept of Workforce Development (State) have figured out between April and June Wisconsin's construction jobs declined 6,300. This is the largest drop in number and percentage in the history of employment number collecting in the state. Experts are stating quietly amongst themselves there's structural problems in Wisconsin, i.e.economy isn't diversified, manufacturing jobs leaving for other states and countries, little technology or resource extraction, and a declining education and infrastructure system with record high state and local bond debt.

    TEG-WEC merger and Computershare

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Computershare. For you investment virgins out there, Computershare is known for screw ups and their "improved" dividend reinvestment plans (i.e. fees). Did you notice it took almost two weeks from the merger date to getting the shares into your Computershare account? Did you try contacting WE Energy investor relations? Forget e-mail, you have to go through the Milwaukee phone book or snail mail. WE Energy is still figuring out this technology thing. As Klapp finds he needs big bucks to correct his mistake of refurbishing ancient, global warming coal plants you can anticipate the DRIP will go to fees.

  • Scotty has handed 57 DNR professional staff pink slips. Under the rules permanent staff can't be fired unless limited term employees are fired. too. Scotty didn't know that, Scotty doesn't know a lot of things college grads know.
    The DNR is finally getting around to Scotty's failed Iron County taconite mine. Seems his buddies owe the state $18,000 and still have not capped their bore holes. Noting is said about the tens of thousands in IOUs the company made to Iron County.
    Might as well fire the DNR dealing with this billion and half dollar non-existent iron mine, Scotty. The mine was just a fantasy in a long line of fantasies.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?" Hey, tomorrow, let's have fun and ask Scotty where all those Wisconsin construction jobs have gone to!

  • Obama would want him to serve a less of a sentence because his crimes were non-violent. Of course, Cosby's a bro, so Obama won't ask him to return his Presidential Medal of Freedom.

  • Associated Bank is closing 6 Wisconsin branches in addition to their previous closure plan. Gee, you think the lousy Wisconsin economy might have a part in it? What's that? In Minnesota the bank is just consolidating two branches because of their proximity to each other. Damn, that Farm-Labor governor in Minnesota where business is ranked number one in the country.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
    Tomorrow we'll turn things over at Wisconsin Job Loss Today to Scotty and let him hand out some pink slips.

  • The whole point for citizens to have military weapons is too use them according to the NRA. So the Muslim extremists are doing just that. You think Isis would have the decency to send the NRA a Ramadan card.

  • National Ace in Milwaukee announced on facebook they were closing as Walker yapped about his success. In business for 65 years they just couldn't make it shelling out high state taxes to support Walker's doling out hundreds of millions in WEDC corruption.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"

  • Strategic Fundraising locked it's doors leaving over a hundred employees going what happened. Now the employees are suing they're out of 60 days of pay and benefits like vacation time. The Republican Party was the company's number one client.
    And you thought the rumbling, bumbling, stumbling of the Republicans ended with Jerry Ford, legendary for falling down. His wife fell down a lot too, dead drunk falling down. lol
    All together now, "Scott Walker, where are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"

  • Unadjusted figures show the week ending July 4 Wisconsin had 8,085 new unemployment claims, the previous week it was 6.,857, for an increase of 1,228. In Minnesota, recently ranked number 1 in the country for business, initial claims were 3,561 less than half of its sister state, Wisconsin. New claims were up only 485. Damn Minnesota for its full time, college grad Farm/Labor governor and Far,/Labor controlled legislature.
    Look for WE Energy to be light in revenue again this quarter, forget any sign of revenue growth, too.
    All together now, "Scott Walker, were are you and the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
