Getting a Holst of myself..... Venus...Bringer of peace...


"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us,"
Charles Dickens

What Would a Republican do???

In August of 2009 Tom Barrett, then Mayor of Milwaukee and the man who ran against Scott Walker for Governor on the Democratic Ticket was leaving the Wisconsin State Fair with his family when he came across a domestic abuse situation.  Full Story Here

Now I am not saying that Tom would have made a GREAT Governor..... but it the wake of what has happened in the last couple of months, he would have made a much better one.  He as at State Park that day without his security..... he immediately went to 'help' someone.
I find it difficult to believe that Scott Walker would have been there alone, with family, that he would have rushed to help anyone.

Unless they CHEAT.......  see helping someone.... really helping someone, other than himself, is not what Scotty Sweetcheeks understands..... BUT HE KNOWS HOW TO CHEAT   there have also been vague rumors that  The 2.3 grade point Walker was caught cheating in college and was asked to leave.... rather that drop out. Hey, it's a rumor that I can not validate.... but like
Scott.... I'll say it any way.... like, when he SAID WISCONSIN IS BROKE  .....

oh gees, I gotzta go buy some rolaids.  I have heartburn and need some help..... I'm not calling Scotty, though.  I wonder if Tom will be around next January

shocking video of extreme violent students at UW -Madison

call their mom's


 oh.... Wisconsin is Sooooooo broke.... we are going to the dogs..... actually.  A provision of The State Budget Repair Bill..... is about selling shelter animals ...... for scientific experiments....

SECTION 2704. 174.13 (2) of the statutes is amended to read:

174.13 (2) Any officer or pound which has custody of an unclaimed dog may release the dog to the University of Wisconsin System, the University of Wisconsin–
­Madison, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inc., or to any other educationa­l institutio­n of higher learning chartered under the laws of the state and accredited to the University of Wisconsin System or University of Wisconsin–­Madison, upon requisitio­n by the institutio­n. The requisitio­n shall be in writing, shall bear the signature of an authorized agent, and shall state that the dog is requisitio­ned for scientific or educationa­l purposes. If a requisitio­n is made for a greater number of dogs than is available at a given time, the officer or pound may supply those immediatel­y available and may withhold from other dispositio­n all unclaimed dogs coming into the officer’s or pound’s custody until the requisitio­n is fully discharged­, excluding impounded dogs as to which ownership is establishe­d within a reasonable period. A dog left by its owner for dispositio­n is not considered an unclaimed dog under this section. If operated by a county, city, village or town, the officer or pound is entitled to the payment of $1 for each dog requisitio­ned. An institutio­n making a requisitio­n shall provide for the transporta­tion of the dog.” 
..... HMMMMMMMM...... this could be a Republican way to, ah, supply 'school lunches'  After all.... who really knows what's in those muttballs.

.....of course.... if you ask Walker..... he would say that this should not surprise anyone..... he was completely honest during his campaign...

Bust Unions.  Sell Dogs.

War... have it Your way!


 ok..... this is old news......

"US soldiers line up to order food from a Burger King fast food shop at Camp Liberty in Baghdad, Iraq, on Monday, Feb. 7, 2005. The Army & Air Force Exchange Service operates 23 fast food franchises at 16 U.S. bases in Iraq, with 25 more approved and under construction. Having a chance to skip the mess hall and go to Pizza Hut, Burger King or Subway - Popeye's Fried Chicken and Taco Bell which will be added this month - makes a tremendous difference, soldiers say."

Now, there is some info that the US Gov is getting rid of Fast Food.... in a slow war.... but why was it there in the first place?  Because America loves to outsource .... even it's war's.

Allison Stanger has a  book on this subject, "One Nation Under Contract: The Outsourcing of American Power and the Future of Foreign Policy."

In 2008, notes Stanger, roughly 80 percent of the State Department's requested budget went out the door in the form of contracts and grants. The Army's primary support contractor in Iraq, KBR, reportedly has some 17,000 direct-hire employees there.

Lately Karl Rove... remember him....  complained in 2009 about the Obama Administration outsourcing to contractors for the War effort...  From Truthout

"Um, excuse me Karl, how about outsourcing an entire war to politically connected war companies? Remember those eight years? While Rove may be using the term "outsource" in a general way, let's remember this fact: never, ever in US history have more government and military activities been outsourced to private corporations than they were the day Bush and Rove left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Obama moved in. For Rove-or any Bush-era official-to have the audacity to blast anyone for outsourcing anything is like a bigger-scale version of Republican Senator David Vitter lecturing the losers exiting Scores "gentlemen's club" about the moral evils of prostitution.

    The real article that should come below a headline "Obama Can't Outsource Afghanistan" would never be written by Rove. Such an article would denounce the actual scandal of Obama's continuation of the Bush-Cheney-Rove policy of radically outsourcing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to corporate criminals like Armor Group, DynCorp, Blackwater, KBR, Triple Canopy, Lockheed Martin and many, many others."

Well the real truth is The NEW REPUBLICANS would like to get rid of government altogether and let ALL OF America be outsourced to private companies.......

...... Then we will really see some efficiencies.....
the fact is.... The war's are still good business, and will never end until America gets out of the WAR BUSINESS..... So the next time some one tells you that the 'private sector' is more efficient... Remeber the wars.

and have a good day.
