Wisconsin, Wisconsin, it’s a …

Wisconsin, Wisconsin, it’s a …

place where judges act strangely, Judge draws flak for signing Walker recall petition and Judge Flanagan must step aside in voter ID case:

After signing a petition to force a recall of Gov. Scott Walker, the liberal judge had the audacity to issue a temporary injunction against the state’s voter ID law. He signed the recall petition on Nov. 15, the very first day the petitions legally could be signed.

“The very fact that Dane County Judge David Flanagan signed a petition to recall Governor Walker calls today’s court proceedings regarding Wisconsin’s voter ID law into question,” Republican Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Ben Sparks said in a statement.

But not to worry, the decision is solid, he cited to the famous jurist Justice William Scalia.

From the archives of Wisconsin judicial fame:  WI Justice Ann Walsh Bradley’s abusive claim of abuse.

Prof., I’d have to check, but in Texas a judge signing a recall petition might be judicial misconduct.

Wonder about Wisconsin…???

    Wisconsin thinks their poop doesn’t stink, and they are better than Texas. While Wisconsin has better ACT scores amongst it’s high school seniors than Texas, Wisconsin is Whiter, which accounts for the difference. During last year’s public sector protests, mostly teachers, comparisons were made with Wisconsin’s organized teachers, and Texas’s unorganized teachers. Texas students did better. So those snobs in Wisconsin don’t think they need guidelines about judicial misconduct. Apparently even Supreme Court Justices can tell whoppers to the public, with no fear of reprisal. Other than I’m due to collect a teacher pension from Wisconsin, I’d say Texas sounds like a mostly sensible place.

The Chevy Volt as ‘EuroCar of the Year’ ranks right up there with President Obama being awarded the ‘Nobel Peace’ Prize. There is something definitely wrong with the ‘water’ across the pond.

    Motor Trend Car of the Year for 2011.

    Like THAT mattered…

    Silly, gushing press does not a market make!

Mrs. Dweet recently subscribed to Consumers Reports [after four decades of not needing idiots’ advice on household purchases] and Lo and Behold the Volt is one of their numerous “Recommended” buys. I almost choked, until I saw the Pious was favored by their “panel of experts”, too. No offense, professor, but CU is the perfect example of educated individuals being as dumb as rocks. Some say it might be a political payoff to the administration, but no reasonable person would actually believe that, would they?

Here is another Breitbart epose’ (

It’s just as disturbing as Obama’s smug smirking Harvard tape because in the words, and actions of his operatives, we can actually see his tactics …and his heart in action.

As far as I am concerned (as a voter in Wisconsin) the worst part is that the Judge had the temerity to issue the injunction preventing Voter ID from taking effect for the April 3 election when the Judge is running for reelection in that very election (as noted in the article linked at How can there not be a conflict of interest when Judge Flanagan is issuing an injunction setting conditions of an election when he is on the ballot (although unopposed.) If I lived in Dane County, I would write in the name of someone else (perhaps Ann Althouse would be appropriate.)

Perhaps Flannagan was thinking of the departed Antonin Rehnquist, the former chief justice?

there is a ‘William Scalia’ listed at He is an Art Director.

    Damn, Browndog, I thought you were repeating yourself. What a load of shit.

    Doug Wright in reply to Browndog. | March 7, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Now, if the Chevy Volt’s battery is allowed to run down, will that vehicle become a brick? A thing that would require an immense effort simply to push off the street and onto a safe harbor til it could be removed by a wrecker / tow truck?

    Or, if that Volt were to be on a Seattle Ferry, would that presumed disabled vehicle then be usable as an anchor for the said ferry? What would the EPA say about that situation and would that be an environmental violation of the most egregious kind?

    But, still, if the EU likes the Chevy Volt, perhaps the EU branch of GM should be given exclusive rights to make and market the Volt as a reward for upholding Green Energy goals.

    BUT – has it been nominated for a NOBEL PEACE PRIZE???

    Corporal Bradley (wikileaks) Manning has.

“Overall, Gingrich won almost as many delegates (72) as Santorum did (84) on Super Tuesday. That‘s in large part because he did so well in his home state, but it also suggests his campaign is hardly dead.

And now, as the Post’s Krissah Thompson reports, Gingrich is shifting resources out of Saturday’s Kansas caucuses to focus on the Deep South contests.”

    Uncle Samuel in reply to NewtCerto. | March 8, 2012 at 11:54 am

    “having Gingrich win over Santorum would be a pretty nice consolation prize for his campaign going forward.”

    Same old tune. The basic assumption in the media is “Romney is the nominee.”

    The media from Drudge to FOX, all push this assumption overtly and covertly in every story, every sentence uttered, every facial expression, every adjective, every headline.

    This was very apparent even with FOX news coverage of Super Tuesday.

    Romney’s campaign had the gall to say Romney would be the nominee unless there was an ‘act of God’.

    May those involved be forced to eat crow for their assumption, and/or wear sack cloth and ashes for their presumption.

Damn. Didn’t happen. Working on it…

    Looks good.

    It’s currently my screen saver.

    When I turn on my computer, it says “Breitbart is here”.

    I smile, and think to myself–damn straight!

My reason for being Grumpy has little to do with failing eyesight but more to do with contending with stupid people on a daily basis even though I’m retired.

If it’s not a confrontation with an inept driver or a clerk who cannot answer a simple question attempting to resolve an issue with a bureaucrat, it’s the nonsense that comes over the air!

Yep, that simplified life that I dreamed of is, well, er just not turning out that way…

this is kinda off-topic….

but this video

just surfaced…

the Democrats hid this during (even 0bama’s mentor says this was hid from sight of voters) during
the 2008 Presidential election
This is quite damaging….

what you see is 0bama hugging Prof. Derrick Bell
an extreme racist marxist (another one… a man can be judged by the company he keeps…) and he even goes further by saying… we should all embrace Prof. Derrick Bell’s views.

…I dun know how 0bama is gonna win 2012 now, realistically speaking.

This just happens to prevent Voter ID from being implemented in Wisconsin’s open Presidential primary in April 3rd. Normally that wouldn’t be all that big a deal, except that this year the Democrats are openly calling for disrupting the Republican nomination process.

This just happens to be a judge who last year signed a recall petition against Governor Scott Walker. And Flanagan neglected to admit to this event, prior to making his decision.

And this just happens to be a judge who has former Kathleen Falk (and current Wisconsin Education Association Council) adviser Melissa Mulliken as his campaign manager. This is important because Falk is of course running against Scott Walker in the recall election – and WEAC has preemptively endorsed Falk. Also, Mulliken has been prominent in the anti-Walker crusade.

    Uncle Samuel in reply to Ragspierre. | March 8, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Rumors are circulating that our dear leader’s personal attorney, Holder, will slap all 57 states with Voter Photo ID injunctions just before the election.

    We need a national voter photo ID registry.

    And more supervision of vote counting, especially in the caucus states.

I’ll just keep supporting Governor Walker no matter what – he deserves all our gratitude.

BTW: It’s not just Wisconsin where judges act strangely:)

In and of itself methane isn’t toxic, but in a closed space it can displace the oxygen a person needs and cause asphyxiation. If it mixes with other gases, all sorts of dangerous byproducts may result, carbon monoxide being a particularly nasty one.

Wisconsin, as we know, is ‘America’s Dairyland’, a nod to its extensive dairy cattle herds, milk production, and especially its cheeses. A Green Bay Packer fan is a ‘cheesehead’. As we further know, cattle – dairy as well as beef – produce a lot of methane. See where I’m going here?
