Eau Claire High Speed Rail Route Meeting 12/1/2010

This is a short video of the press conference that preceded the High Speed Rail Routing informational meeting in Eau Claire last night.  Members of various organizations spoke in support of extending the high speed rail network through Wisconsin, as it has been being planned for the past 15 years. The meeting was very informational and explained what the process will be for determining the route the rail system will take through the state.  Approximately 220 people attended the meeting, showing a large support for high speed rail through the Chippewa Valley.

Schoolhouse Rock for our Republican Friends

Eugene Kane that the GOP apparent confusion about how laws are actually made (and how they're not made) may be caused by their not having watched the right cartoons when they were young. In our never-ending attempt at education, we present this as a public service to governor-elect Walker, Ron Johnson, and the new incoming class of Republican legislators.

I'm Mad as Hell

One of my big complaints about my fellow citizens is how no one seems to be listening, watching or observing what is happening in this country. Now here's a guy who is 'informed' and got mad. :-)

Poor guy from the Town of Vermont, Wisconsin just couldn't handle it that Sara Palin's daughter, Bristol made it another night on dancing with the stars. See my related link below for the entire story. 

I hope those Tea Baggers vote her all the way up to the top. Love to see these reality shows go to shreds. Although I think we'd have better voter participation if we voted for our president on TV. Perhaps a cross between, "who wants to be..." and American Idol. Like, "Who wants to be an American Idol." -saw-

New Gov Elect Flip Flops on Rail

Scott Walker was a supporter of then Governor Tommy Thompson's rail initiative. This federal funding is going to be spent but it appears like it will likely happen in Florida, California or on the East Coast. Does this go in the "Jobs Lost" column? -saw-

Honoring the conscience of our veterans

From Rethink Afghanistan:

Today is the 10th Veterans Day since the Afghanistan War began.

The burden of this brutal, futile war falls heaviest on a very small slice of the population: military members and their families. Many of them think that this war is immoral, and that makes fighting in it a weight they'll have to carry their whole lives. This new video features the voices of some of these veterans, urging us to rethink the burden we're laying on troops.

is partnering with the Truth Commission on Conscience in War to help lift some of this burden. We're pushing to expand the rights of veterans who refuse to serve in specific wars on moral grounds. Right now you have to oppose all wars, ever, to be granted conscientious objector status. That's silly--you don't have to be a pacifist to think it's morally wrong to be fighting an endless war in Afghanistan.

Ron Johnson Goes on Upfront and Pulls a Bait & Switch AND Becomes First U.S. Senator to Ever Say "Pfffft" in an Interview!

I am shocked.  Shocked!

Ron Johnson went on Upfront with Mike Gousha yesterday and for the first time focused on tort reform, cap and trade, and tax cuts for the wealthy.  He also mentioned that a focus of his will be to kill card checks, which he never bothered to mention once during the campaign. 

But the best part is that right before he says, "I wish I could take a magic wand and completly wipe off the Obama agenda," he becomes the first U.S. Senator to ever say "pffffft."

Stay classy, San Diego.

Breaking: Ron Johnson Plagiarized Lloyd Christmas Speech!

I knew when I first heard Ron Johnson's brilliant "when you're in a hole, the first thing you've got to do is start digging" line, that it was wayyyyyy to brilliant to come from Ron Johnson.

Turns out, I'm right:  Lloyd Christmas was the first to make this insightful declaration in the movie Dumb and Dumber:
