Wisconsinites Interests Now, sponsoring organization of the Recall Doyle Exploratory Committee, is announcing a protest in the Capitol Rotunda at noon on Tuesday, June 23rd.
Vince Schmuki said "WIN- Wisconsinites Interests Now, as the legitimate voice of the WI people, has a duty to provide a counterpoint to the pressure of the lobbyists and special interest groups seeking special legislative breaks and offering large campaign contributions in return. To this end, "we can not we must not and we will not" allow the conference committee sessions to go forward without a protest in the Capitol to take place on Tuesday 6/23 at 12 noon in the Rotunda area. The protest is to take place for approximately one hour and will feature a piggish theme that will highlight the low-life pigs that are posing as Legislators and gorging at the public trough of taxpayer money! And as we all know pigs get slaughtered -figuratively of course. In real life they will suffer the shame and disgrace of the Wisconsin recall process. Please join us for a colorful expose of the barnyard antics that pass for legitimate politics in Wisconsin!"
With an overall apporval rating of just 34% and a disapproval rating among independents of 69%, Jim Doyle is among the least popular Wisconsin governors of all time. After declaring "We should not -- we must not -- and I will not -- must raise taxes" - Doyle's tax, fee, and spending hikes in the 2009 budget have proved him unfit for office in the eyes of thousands across the state who are organizing to conduct a statewide recall.
Over 4,400 residents from 71 of 72 counties have signed up to help at Rallies and organizational meetings have been held in Green Bay, Chilton, Manitowoc, Oshkosh, Richfield, Menomonee Falls, and Milwaukee; and events are currently scheduled in Appleton, Fort Atkinson, La Crosse, and Waukesha.
Wisconsinites can join the Doyle Recall by logging on to, or calling 414-801-0800.

The Socialists are going after food next

Legislation approved by Congress and  gleefully signed into law by President Obama gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority over tobacco products for the first time……ever.

Tobacco is a legal product.

Doesn’t matter.

In this tsunami of unprecedented government takeover of American industries, it’s no surprise that the socialist who now run everything in our country would set their sights on the most evil commodity on the planet.

What does it mean?

The FDA can now set far-reaching limits on tobacco advertising.

There will be enhanced and larger warnings on tobacco products because as we all recognize, nobody, I mean nobody knows that smoking is dangerous, so the more “education” the better.

Please. Everyone on the planet knows smoking is bad for you.

How much more does more education mean? Warnings will cover at least half of tobacco packages. Ads could only be in black and white. The First Amendment? What the hell is that?

Candy-like tobacco lozenges and sweet-flavored products will no longer be sold.

Please. Is there anyone on the planet who doesn't know smoking is bad for you?

Uncle Sam can also restrict the levels of nicotine and other ingredients in tobacco products.

On the surface, oh my goodness, that sounds so, so, so, wonderful!!! The Obamessiah, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank et al will able to essentially control Big Tobacco.

Sorry, but this news doesn’t thrill or excite. In fact, it scares me. Why? Because I am a pool player. I don’t look at the ball I’m shooting at right now. I plan my next shots, two, three, four balls down the table.

I worry about the next ball in the sights of our fast-growing socialist government and I see food. Food that’s considered bad for me.

Don’t laugh. I see one national columnist brought up an example of a food item I enjoyed just this past week: a Big Mac. I don’t fancy
Two All-Beef Patties Special Sauce Lettuce Cheese Pickles Onion on a Sesame Seed all that often, but when I do, I gotta admit that baby goes down real nice. Oh, yum!

I’ve also read the news (actually it’s no longer news, it’s pretty old stuff) about how God-awful the Big Mac is because it has all that sodium.

Does Big Brother intend to regulate nasty foods just like they intend to control nasty tobacco? You betcha!

Lots of non-smokers are deliriously happy about the trampling of rights brought on by heavy-handed smoking regulations. Why? Simple. Because they don’t smoke! What happens when those non-smokers who eat and drink like crap are the next targets?

I love this. Even those who have been pushing for more government interference when it comes to tobacco aren’t happy. Researcher and anti-tobacco activist Stanton Glantz at U.C. San Francisco Stanton Glantz says about the new law signed by President Obama, “It's kind of like trying to push a balloon into a box that isn't quite big enough.”

The crowd that wants government to step in and control everything (generally liberals) is NEVER satisfied. That’s why they refuse to back down and just go after something else.
