Fired again...

The new job is history. I was not fast enough to absorb eight year's worth of six different engineer's design, I guess.

I'm going to look for a job as a plant maintenance man or mechanic - that's the job I like best, and damn the salary. Money is not worth killing oneself. I'll also keep running my little consulting / jack-of-all-trades business.

I sure won't miss the daily 150-mile commute into the belly of the beast - suburban Chicago...

Wisconsin Carry

Wisconsin --( Wisconsin Carry takes an “all of the above” approach to protecting and advancing the right to carry in Wisconsin.

In the past, individual members, and WCI as an organization have had success in getting stores who post signs prohibiting carry to take the signs down and allow carry as state law provides.

We don’t have the resources to get involved every time a store or business posts a “no firearms” sign, but we do look at situations on a case by case basis and if we believe there is an issue that affects a large number of members where we can make a difference, we may get involved.

This is one of those situations.


Go read the whole article.

My comment to :

I understand that your corporate office has decided to make Wisconsin Farm & Fleet stores "gun free zones" by posting signs advising that legally carrying a defensive firearm is prohibited in these stores.

As a private business, Farm & Fleet has every right to make such a decision - but is it the correct one for today's world?

The only persons who will be affected by this rule are the law-abiding customers who would never cause a problem. Criminals are likely to see these signs as an invitation to commit an armed robbery, knowing that there could be no defensive response by the customers or employees.

Wisconsin may soon join the other 48 states that do not prohibit their citizens from carrying a concealed weapon for defense. Open carry is already legal in Wisconsin, and many of the restrictive laws now on our books may be repealed by our new legislators. Will you still prohibit law-abiding folks from being able to protect themselves in your parking lots if these laws change?

I understand one of your customers was attacked in the parking lot of a store near Madison. If you prohibit your customers from having the means to defend themselves, you may find your stores losing business to other companies without this kind of restriction.

Please rethink your decision. If one of your customers is injured or killed because he or she could not defend themselves on account of leaving their gun home so they could shop, you would bear some of the responsibility for the crime, as an enabler of the criminal.


Let 'em know this is not a good idea...

Woman arrested at ABIA after refusing enhanced pat down


Posted on December 22, 2010 at 9:38 PM

Updated Thursday, Dec 23 at 9:39 AM

Early Wednesday morning, a computer glitch shut down a security checkpoint for a couple of hours at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The line snaked out the door as many travelers waited for more than an hour and some missed their flights. One of the first people in line after that shutdown never made it through. She was arrested and banned from the airport.

Claire Hirschkind, 56, who says she is a rape victim and who has a pacemaker-type device implanted in her chest, says her constitutional rights were violated. She says she never broke any laws. But the Transportation Security Administration disagrees.

Hirschkind was hoping to spend Christmas with friends in California, but she never made it past the security checkpoint.

"I can't go through because I have the equivalent of a pacemaker in me," she said.

Hirschkind said because of the device in her body, she was led to a female TSA employee and three Austin police officers. She says she was told she was going to be patted down.

"I turned to the police officer and said, 'I have given no due cause to give up my constitutional rights. You can wand me,'" and they said, 'No, you have to do this,'" she said.

Hirschkind agreed to the pat down, but on one condition.

"I told them, 'No, I'm not going to have my breasts felt,' and she said, 'Yes, you are,'" said Hirschkind.

When Hirschkind refused, she says that "the police actually pushed me to the floor, (and) handcuffed me. I was crying by then. They drug me 25 yards across the floor in front of the whole security."


As the video by that pilot shows, the bad guys can plant bombs with immunity, while women like this get raped again by the "authorities".

The War On (some) Drugs - Logic need not apply

There is now a Scientific Integrity policy that all federal agencies must obey - about time.

EXCEPT - ONDCP. When it comes to drugs, let's not get science, or anything other than the quest for ultimate power, get in the way.

ONDCP specifically exempted from Scientific Integrity policy

This is, while merely a memo, refreshing, and the kind of thing that has been sorely lacking from the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and its director.

There’s much more in the memo which, if followed, would open the door to a realistic and open national conversation about drug policy.

But there’s one catch.

At the end of the memo…

Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) authority granted by law to an executive department, agency, or the head thereof…

And, of course, the current law authorizing the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy specifically states:

Responsibilities. –The Director– [...]

(12) shall ensure that no Federal funds appropriated to the Office of National Drug Control Policy shall be expended for any study or contract relating to the legalization (for a medical use or any other use) of a substance listed in schedule I of section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812) and take such actions as necessary to oppose any attempt to legalize the use of a substance (in any form) that–

  1. is listed in schedule I of section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812); and
  2. has not been approved for use for medical purposes by the Food and Drug Administration;

If the science says that legalization is even a viable option, the Drug Czar is required by law to ignore, obfuscate, lie, or whatever else is necessary to oppose any attempts to legalize.

By definition in the memo, scientific integrity requires an open analysis of the issue, including looking at best and worst-case scenarios. Yet the law specifically prohibits that kind of openness.

The law trumps the memo’s guidelines, leaving the Drug Czar and the ONDCP specifically exempt from the government’s Scientific Integrity policy.

Scientific Integrity: Fueling Innovation, Building Public Trust

On March 9, 2009, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum on Scientific Integrity emphasizing the importance of science in guiding Administration decisions and the importance of ensuring that the public trusts the science behind those decisions. In it he highlighted six principles of scientific integrity that would be at the core of this Administration’s approach to policy making. And he asked me, in collaboration with other Federal officials, to craft recommendations for ensuring scientific integrity throughout the executive branch.

Today, in response to the President’s request, I am issuing a Memorandum to the Heads of Departments and Agencies that provides further guidance to Executive Branch leaders as they implement Administration policies on scientific integrity. The new memorandum describes the minimum standards expected as departments and agencies craft scientific integrity rules appropriate for their particular missions and cultures, including a clear prohibition on political interference in scientific processes and expanded assurances of transparency. It requires that department and agency heads report to me on their progress toward completing those rules within 120 days.

Comments to Kohl and Lame Duck Feinglod

Still sending emails that probably never get read by humans, at least humans with any real power.

To Kohl:

2012 is coming. You have yet again ignored the commands of your employers, and voted for a bill we did NOT want passed.

Thank God enough other employees followed the orders their bosses gave them.

You are on thin ice here, bucko. Watch your future votes, or you might be enjoying that Senate retirement plan in two years - a plan, in my view, you have no right to.

Vote as we tell you, or resign, if you have any honor left.

To Lame Duck:

Again, you ignore our instructions.

I realize that you, as a lame duck senator, have no reason to follow the commands of the people who sent you to Washington, but common decency would dictate that you at least make it look like you care.

You are going down in the history of Wisconsin as a liberal fool who tried to muzzle political speech and consistently ignored the people he was elected to serve. Congratulations. Enjoy your unearned federal pension, and remember that every penny you take there is stolen from those you swore to serve.


I know it's useless, but it sure feels good to vent. Next month, we can look forward to Wisconsin becoming irrelevant in the Senate, at least, and voting for what's right, at best. It all depends on how much Kohl cares if he's re-elected in 2012. If he's planning on retiring, he might just negate Ron Johnson's vote, but not actually cause any damage to our country.

Or, he might have an attack of conscience, and start voting as the majority of productive Wisconsinites would have him vote.

It backfired.

13M get unexpected tax bill from Obama tax credit

WASHINGTON (AP) — About 13.4 million taxpayers may be getting unexpected tax bills because they were awarded too much money under President Barack Obama's Making Work Pay tax credit, a government audit said Thursday.

The tax credit, which expires Jan. 1, was designed to increase take-home pay by about $8 a week through new tax withholding tables. The credit was capped at $400 for individuals and $800 for married couples filing jointly.

However, the credit put millions of taxpayers at risk for not having enough taxes withheld from their paychecks, resulting in a tax bill when they file their returns, said the audit by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.

Those at risk included people with multiple jobs, married couples who both work, Social Security recipients who also work, and young workers who are also claimed as dependents on their parents' tax returns.


So - the people who needed the help most might not only NOT get refunds this year that they were expecting, they might have to skip on eating to pay the extra tax.

Why can't these idiots keep their mouths shut and their bill-writing hands in their pockets?

Wisconsin's Handgun Hotline

These folks are protecting us from ourselves.

Here's the instructions for our wonderful, duplication of effort, Handgun Hotline, that has not prevented one criminal act, and possibly has resulted in injury or death to innocents barred from picking up their freedom tools at the time of purchase. $13.00 per "inquiry" to the Criminal Information Bureau. Click the image to embiggen and read the fine use of the English language.

This was Page 1 of 6. The rest are not as entertaining.

Not quite sure why one would be "improssoned" if one leaves a loaded gun within the "rech" of a child. Personally, I would put the irresponsible person who writes crap like this while receiving my tax money as pay in the "prosson".

12/19 addition - let it be said that every person at the "Handgun Hotline" that I have had dealings with was pleasant, helpful, and efficient. It's sad that competent people will be hurt when the government finally sheds itself of duplicate bureaucracies, but them's the breaks.

Osama's DREAM has died!

For the foreseeable future. Good riddance.

They could only muster 55 of the 60 votes needed for cloture. This bodes very well for when we take over the reins in January.

Now, if they can also not pass the public union free-ride bill...or the wimpy START treaty...

The chickens come home to roost!

Mr. Osama has made fast friends among our former allies with his impeccable statesmanship - so...

Snub for Obamas as Royal sources reveal they will not be invited to Prince William's wedding

By Fay Schlesinger

Last updated at 10:09 PM on 17th December 2010

  • American President left off the guest list as it is not a 'state occasion'
  • Royal couple eager to ask ordinary citizens to attend rather than VIPs
  • Heads of State who may attend include Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni

President Obama and his wife Michelle will not be invited to Prince William's wedding next year.

Because Prince William is not yet heir to the throne, his wedding to Kate Middleton is not classed as a ‘state occasion’ – and the couple feel under no pressure to fill the 2,000-strong guest list with heads of state, the Mail understands.

More useless emails.

To ex-employee Feingold:


Here are your orders:

Vote NO on the "Dream Act". Let the next Congress do this according to the wishes of the people - your bosses.

Vote NO on the pork-laden Omnibus Spending Bill. Now is not the time for another "we have to pass it in order to find out what it has in it" 2000-page monstrosity with over 6300 special perks for fired former civil employees.

Vote NO on the "tax compromise". Again, this needs to be addressed by our current employees, not those who we have fired due to their incompetence.

Follow your orders, and have a Merry Christmas.

The same to soon to be ex-employee Kohl.

To Tammy Gay Baldwin, re-elected by union pressure by a nose:


Remember that you have been re-elected mainly by the pressure of unions and other special interest groups, and that you and your fellow left-leaning liberals and socialists are now in the minority. Try a little restraint and "bipartisanship" during the next few years, and really try to follow the orders of the majority of your Wisconsin constituents who did not vote, or did not vote for you. You just might get another chance after this if you are good.

Wisconsin union contracts!

The Beloit Daily News had this today:

Dems race to OK union deals

Published: Wednesday, December 15, 2010 11:01 AM CST
Aim to ink pacts before Walker, GOP take over

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Democrats scrambled Tuesday to set up a vote on new contracts for thousands of state workers before they lose their legislative majority, taking the unusual step of going around one of their own leaders.

** The money quote: **

But Democrats control both the Assembly and the Senate until Jan. 3, when Walker takes office and Republicans seize control of both legislative houses, and they’ve been pushing to complete the deals before they lose power. The conflict grew even more heated last week when Walker suggested he might consider abolishing state employee unions.

“Bring it on,” Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, which covers about 22,000 state workers, said Tuesday. “If he wants labor unrest . . . bring it on.”

Beil didn’t elaborate.

** Sounds like a threat of violence to me **


My reply to the Letters to the Editor page:

I guess we know how much respect all those lame-duck senators and assemblypersons have for their constituents - they are insisting on jamming expensive union contracts down our throats, knowing full well this is their last chance to pay off their political debts to the unions.

I hope Governor Walker makes good on his promise to outlaw public unions in Wisconsin, As far as I am concerned, anyone who wants to work for a governmental agency should accept whatever pay the people, through their elected representatives. judge is proper for their job, and not complain. They are free to seek real, productive jobs in the private sector, where they are free to join a union if they want to.

If you work for the people, you should not be threatening the people, like Mr. Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, does in his statement. I believe what he is quoted as saying could be construed as a threat of violence.

"Kill switch" in new Intel processors?

Just saw this: December 14, 2010

Remote `kill switch' added to Intel's newest processor
Jason Douglass

Lauded as a security feature, Intel's new Sandy Bridge processor can be remotely disabled by a hardware/software combination known at Anti-Theft 3.0. Systems can be disabled over 3G networks, even while the OS is not running. Even when the hard drive is replaced, the critical systems will still be terminated.

At first this sounds great: if an owner loses a laptop it can be remotely disabled to ensure no sensitive data is compromised. But essentially we are giving up control of our computers and putting that control in another's hands.

With the Patriot Act in place and and legislation like the `kill switch' bill, many of the rights we took for granted are threatened. It is well within reason to fear this type of technology as it could be used as a means of control and censorship.

The CIA recently created a `honeypot' on a hijacked mirror site associated with Wikileaks and used it to identify people who download the sensitive data.

University students have been warned not do download Wikileak's documents under threat of being blacklisted from government jobs.

Homegrown terrorism is the new buzz being cultivated by DHS and various other government agencies. In publications like MIAC report, authorities identify patriots as dangers and label them probable terrorists.

Even Geraldo Rivera has begun to see through the thin veil of false flag terrorism, identifying patsies planted by the very agencies meant to protect us.

We have lost control of our government and soon we will lose control over our own health. Constitutional rights are continually under attack and we are losing the war. With PR spins like Intel's it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep things in perspective.

The TSA responds

Recently, I sent these clowns a note - reproduced at the bottom of their response. As usual with any governmental agency or public servant, they totally ignored the content of my comment.

I wonder who writes these? Is it just an "Eliza" program? A badly written one?


Thank you for your email message regarding the delays you have experienced while traveling through our Nation's airports.

As part of its airport security procedures, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires airlines to verify the identity of all passengers to ensure that persons on Federal watch lists who are known to pose, or are suspected of posing, a threat to civil aviation or national security receive secondary screening or are denied boarding on commercial aircraft. The Federal watch lists are maintained by the U.S. Terrorist Screening Center in a consolidated Terrorist Screening Database, and are compiled from information provided by Federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The Federal watch lists include a No-Fly List and a Selectee List. Individuals on the No-Fly List are prohibited from traveling on commercial aircraft. Individuals on the Selectee List are permitted to fly but receive secondary screening at airport security checkpoints.

DHS recognizes the frustration that individuals may feel when they experience delays at airports due to security procedures. To help alleviate delays, DHS has developed the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP) to assist individuals who believe they have been incorrectly delayed, denied boarding, identified for additional screening, or have experienced difficulties when seeking entry into the United States.

Travelers may outline their concerns in a single request to DHS TRIP via the Internet. The information received will be shared with applicable DHS component agencies, such as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as with the U.S. Department of State and, when appropriate, with airport and airline operators. Information will be shared in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a), and as established in the Privacy Impact Assessment published for DHS TRIP.

To participate in the program, please submit a completed Traveler Inquiry Form and requested copies of identity documents to DHS TRIP at or by completing the enclosed form. DHS will review the information submitted and work with other Federal agencies, if necessary, to resolve individual concerns. DHS TRIP will inform you in writing when review of your inquiry is complete.

DHS can neither confirm nor deny whether an individual is on a Federal watch list because this information is derived from classified and sensitive law enforcement and intelligence information. In addition, DHS cannot ensure that your travel will always be delay-free. Airline check-in procedures must still be followed and other security measures remain in place at the airport. For example, an individual may be selected for secondary screening to resolve a walk-through metal detector alarm or because of random selection. Because airline procedures for screening passengers against Federal watch lists vary, an individual may still be required to check in for flights at the airline ticket counter and be unable to print a boarding pass from a home computer, airport kiosk, or curbside.

When you submit an online inquiry, a control number will be assigned to you. The control number will be displayed on the Traveler Inquiry Form acknowledgement page along with your name. Please print the acknowledgement page, sign it, and send it to DHS TRIP along with the requested copies of identity documents. If completing the enclosed form, please sign it and send it to DHS TRIP along with the requested copies of identity documents. Please do not send original identity documents as they will not be returned.

To send your completed documentation to DHS TRIP, you may e-mail it to or mail it to the following address:

DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP)
c/o Transportation Security Administration
601 South 12th Street, TSA-901
Arlington, VA 20598-6901

To check the status of your inquiry, go to and enter your control number. If you do not have a control number and wish to check the status of your inquiry, contact DHS TRIP by e-mail or the address above.

If you have questions, please contact the TSA Contact Center at (866) 289-9673 or (571) 227-2900.

If you enter their "control number" on their web site, you get a message asking you to enter a number. Stripping all the non-numeric stuff results in it being accepted, but nothing happens.

Sort of like the TSA's record on finding real terrorists. I saw somewhere that they miss something like 65% of the "fake bombs" sent through to test security.

So, if Osama - the one over in Ashcanistan - wants to blow up a plane here, he only needs to send 40 bombs through, and he's almost certain one will end up on a plane. Of course, his bombmakers have shown great ineptitude lately, for which we should all give thanks.

Random thoughts on the law

If someone is enough of a danger to the community to need to be "registered" as a sex offender, WHY the hell is this person still loose in the community?

Registration of any kind has never prevented a single crime - it just makes for employment for more bureaucrats to maintain the records.


What's with sentences for crimes? HUGE fines and long jail terms for copying a copyrighted video - but much less for aggravated rape or even murder. Is the government telling us that CDs and DVDs are worth more than human lives? Guess so.


I commute to Elgin, IL for work, and on the backroads I drive, I've been seeing new sign at every small bridge over a wet spot: "NO LOITERING OR JUMPING OFF BRIDGE".

Who is the brainiac that mandated these? Most of the streams are less than a foot deep during the spring thaw, and who exactly has been loitering? The trolls from the Illinois Trollway System?


What's with the people who mount those solar powered warning lights along highways in Illinois? They mount many of them with the solar panels facing NORTH. This kind of stupidity has got to be taught - no natural idiot is that dumb!


Pet peeve - if someone has "done their time" and is ready to be released back into society, WHY can they not be trusted with a gun? If they are that dangerous, like the "sex offenders", why are they out of the can? Perhaps we need to build Heinlein's "Coventry".

Enough for now..

Government stupidity

I know, redundant.

I just got a bill from the Wisconsin Department of Justice for three "transactions" for the "Handgun Hotline" - Wisconsin's totally redundant Brady check just for handgun transfers. $13 for each "subject" to check if they are naughty enough to be denied a transfer. This used to be much less - our Demonrats in Madison figured gun buyers are an easy mark for fleecing.

We pay taxes to the feds - and part of that money is used to run the FBI E-Check system, that does the same thing, unless the individual state has it's own system - like Ill-Annoys has its' FOID system run by the Illinois State Police.

The "Handgun Hotline" inquiry requires a phone call to the Department of Justice Crime Information Bureau, where a nice (really!) person takes your customer's information, and gives an answer within a day or so via phone call. Once approved, the transfer can happen after a 48-hour delay, to give the customer a chance to cool down - since we all know gun transfers are always in the heat of the moment. It's nice to know the State assumes we all are criminals until proven otherwise, isn't it?

Wisconsin is in serious financial trouble. An easy thing to do to both help the debt and more closely follow the Constitution would be to eliminate this bureau and the insane wait, and let the already-paid-for E-Check do the job. The E-Check is all computerized, and gives results in a couple minutes in most cases.

Once we've shed ourselves of the "Handgun Hotline", then we need to repeal the Brady Act to get the feds out of the business of infringing on the Second Amendment by requiring we ask Big Brother "pretty please may I" before buying a freedom tool.

More probably useless emails, again.

Another email to Kohl.

Here are your orders for the week.

!. Vote NO on S. 3991. Public employees serve at the pleasure of the people, and should not be allowed to form unions or strike, let alone get special treatment on a federal level. If they don't like their working conditions, let them get real jobs in the productive sector of society.

2. Vote NO on any and all bills that either spend more money stolen from us, or expand federal power in any way.

Simple enough. I'm sure even a career politician like yourself can understand that your continuing obedience to the wishes of your masters is the only way you can continue to serve us in the Senate.

2012 is coming.

Let's see what bullcrap he responds with.
