Global Humbug IX-Environmental Madness

Environment, National Issues

Creation took God six days--either literal or not, machts nichts. On the seventh day He rested. Even God was tired from the effort to create a perfect universe--Scripture says "It was good." Since then, man has messed with it, doing nothing but screwing it up. One huge example is the world's greatest scam, Global Climate Change.

The Dogs of War-Scott Walker

Politics, Local Issues

The dogs are in full cry. They think they have Gov. Scott Walker treed, and well they might. The formerly "secret" John Doe documents recently released seem, at least from reading the media reports, to consist mostly of allegations and accusations by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's staff.

Memorial Day 2014

History, National Issues, Perceptions

Well, here we are again. Winter's over and we're enjoying the unofficial first day of summer, at least in Wisconsin. Time for visiting Grandma, or the Dells for the first time this year. Or maybe a backyard get-together complete with brats, beer and friends and neighbors. Perhaps rather just enjoy the three-or four-day--if you took Friday off to extend it--holiday quietly with a good book. Might be a good time to get some yard work done after a rough winter. Holidays are great. But this one, Memorial Day, is special. I wonder how many of us actually think about what it really means.
