Winter wonderland double-whammy

First we hear this.

On top of that, we now get this news.

And we stay here, why?

Union fool, you will vote the way we tell you to vote!

When you belong to a union, you are expected to do what you are told and when and how to do it. You are not expected to exercise your own judgment. You will pay your dues and then perform like trained seals.

I Thank God I don't belong to a union, that I have a mind of my own, and that no one, no one coerces me on how to think and how to vote.


Wacky news from the DNC in Denver

The host city is defending its secret jail built just for the event.

And we all know that on the patriotism scale, Barack Obama is at about a “1.” Take a look at the credential to see him speak at the Convention.

And the doggone thing hasn’t even started yet. Oh, I’m sure it’ll get even better.

So, what happened to that "Dream Ticket"?

Nebraska's Safe Haven Law not at all like Wisconsin's

Topics talked about on WISN

Wisconsin has a Safe Haven Law designed to prevent the abandonment of infants.

From a column written by state Senator Sheila Harsdorf:

“On April 3, 2001, Wisconsin became one of 14 states to adopt a safe haven law.  Under the legislation signed by Governor Scott McCallum, newborn children believed to be under the age of 72 hours may be surrendered into the custody of a law enforcement officer, emergency medical technician (EMT), or hospital staff member.  If a parent is unable to travel to such a location, the parent may utilize the “911” emergency telephone number wherein a law enforcement officer or EMT would be dispatched to take the surrendered child into custody.  The parent who surrenders the child is given complete anonymity and confidentiality, provided that the child is unharmed in any way.  The newborn is then placed for adoption.

According to a study by the National Institute of Health and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, between 1983 and 1991, approximately 1350 infants were killed before reaching 4 months of age.  140 Infants were killed in their first day of life, with 130 of those not being born in hospitals.”

The Safe Haven Law is no longer unique. All 50 states have one, with Nebraska becoming the 50th state to put one on the books last month. However, Nebraska’s law is far different from the other 49. I talked about it on WISN Friday.

Read how Nebraska’s Safe Haven Law goes much too far.
