The transcript

City of Milwaukee idling ordinance is just plain dumb

You want to warm up your car so you start it and let it run while you're inside trying not to get pneumonia.


In the city of Milwaukee, of course that's against the law. Why? Because you're just inviting some thug to steal your vehicle.

Once again, the focus is all wrong, punishing the law abiding citizen out of apprehension over what some real crook might do.

Channel 4 has more.

Ready, aim.....ALERT THE PUBLIC!

The village of Hales Corners is trying to figure out how to improve getting the word out when sharpshooters are targeting deer in Whitnall Park. Apparently this exercise is going to take a few more weeks.

I’ve got some suggestions:





Journal Sentinel

Channel 4

Channel 6

Channel 12

Channel 58

WTMJ Radio

WISN Radio

Simple signs at certain park entrances that read: SHARPSHOOTERS OUT TODAY/TONIGHT

Jim Doyle: OINK OINK

Jim Doyle can’t help himself, hand extended, begging without shame for countless federal dollars. He is the ultimate Porky Pig.

It has caught the attention of, among others, national columnist Cal Thomas who accurately says Doyle is among some governors demanding that Washington pay $1 trillion for their pie in the sky programs.

If the governors don’t get what they want? C’mon people, you assuredly know the next line: “People will die.”

Thomas writes:

“Notice the sleight of hand about to be perpetrated on hardworking taxpayers. In the end, it is we who pay for the plans of politicians who are unable, or unwilling, to control themselves when it comes to other peoples' money. When Republicans cut taxes, Democrats scream about growing deficits. But Democrats never worry about the deficit when they spend more than what the government takes in. So it really isn't about the deficit at all. It is about how much of our hard-earned money the Democrats, mostly, will allow us to keep. When you understand this, you understand everything about politics and politicians.

Every program created and sustained by Democrats (and increasingly some Republicans) must be kept. Once created, they must continue, no matter how unnecessary, outdated, or corrupt they become. The proof of eternal life is to be found in government programs, which are harder to kill than a vampire, another blood-sucking beast.”

Read the entire column over the background snorting sounds of governors like Doyle.
