Products & services. / M&W Fabricating & Welding is open...
« on: February 05, 2015, 10:11:52 PM »
After hearing a street rumor (something common around these parts it seems), about M&W being closed, I spoke with the owner today about a welding project & was told that his land & building is for sale but the business is open.  I ask if the business was closing and was told no.  Mickey will be providing services as usual.  If the property sells, he expects to continue operations in the future.

Good thing as I've always received quality work at a fair price.

Politics / So... let's screw the USD 282 taxpayer
« on: June 19, 2014, 10:29:58 AM »
Don't get to issue a $4,000,000 school bond?  Have an elitist agenda and can't win with the voters?

No problem!  Stack the school board with a bunch of spendthrifts, have a meeting within hours of a failed school bond vote, and raise the local taxes by 4 mil!

At least that's what you do if you're in the USD 282 District.  And with increasing property values, the dollar cost to taxpayers in the long run won't be pretty.

Dammit all, cut some costs, fix the roof, fix the AC, pay for good teachers, and focus on education!  The rumpus room can wait.  The majority of our kids won't be making their future livings in the sports arena.  Watering systems for ball fields and new gyms indeed!

And for the board member who was overheard threatening to move their kid to another district... go for it!  You won't be missed all that much.

Learn from recent history, people.  Do some study on education in the US over the last 3 or 4 decades.  Increased spending on 'education' doesn't always result in better educated, or better prepared students.

We finally get the county to begin cutting taxes and looking at better management ideas, and the spoiled brats move their patsies to the school board and keep hijacking the taxpayer for their pet progressive projects.

Recall elections?  I'm in.

Remember, it's the Board of Education, not the Board of Big Spenders.

1 in 4 Americans unaware that Earth circles Sun
AFP 2/14/2014 4:26:04 PM

Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score -- 6.5 correct -- was barely a passing grade.

Congress isn't the only way to amend the Constitution.  This may be the option of last resort to clean up the unconstitutional mess in Washington, D.C.

Article V of the Constitution says:

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution,  or,  on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states,  shall call a convention for proposing amendments,  which,  in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes,  also as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states,  or by conventions in three fourths thereof,  as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress…

Delaware doctor denied stepdaughter food, bathroom use -mother
By Lacey Johnson February 6, 2014 3:15 PM

 GEORGETOWN, Delaware (Reuters) - A well-known Delaware doctor would punish his stepdaughter by making her stand for hours with her arms outstretched, depriving her of food and forbidding her from using the bathroom, the girl's mother told a court on Thursday.

Pauline Morse testified that she refrained from intervening in order not to undermine her celebrated husband, Dr Melvin Morse, a best-selling author on near-death experiences.

Melvin Morse is standing trial on child endangerment charges. He was arrested in 2012 after the girl, then 11, told authorities that she had been waterboarded on four occasions.

TSA Agents Interrogate Jewish Author For Reading Conservative Newspaper
Federal goons assume role of political thought police

Paul Joseph Watson
February 7, 2014

Award winning Jewish author Phyllis Chesler was questioned and had her bag searched at New York’s JFK Airport as a result of a TSA agent’s suspicions over the fact that she was reading a conservative newspaper.

The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon after Chesler’s flight to Florida was delayed due to the recent ice storms.

As soon as Chesler pulled out a copy of The Jewish Press, a popular English language weekly with a conservative political bent, a TSA agent eyed her with suspicion, approached the author and asked to see the newspaper.

After the TSA agent scrutinized the cover of the newspaper and showed it to another security official, Chesler was ordered to open her luggage, which the two agents then proceeded to rifle through.

During the search, Chesler was interrogated by the two TSA workers. As her luggage was being searched, Chesler noticed that a Muslim woman wearing a niqab that covered her entire face apart from her eyes was allowed through security with no questions asked and with no one even bothering to verify her identity.

Chesler was left alone after the two agents found nothing more deadly than a bottle of water.

Politics / Fact-Free Liberals: Parts I - IV
« on: February 07, 2014, 03:17:14 PM »
Sadly, many "moderate" Republicans & Independents fall into the fact-free leftist liberal ways of thinking too...

Fact-Free Liberals: Part I
Thomas Sowell | Jan 21, 2014

Someone summarized Barack Obama in three words -- "educated," "smart" and "ignorant." Unfortunately, those same three words would describe all too many of the people who come out of our most prestigious colleges and universities today.

President Obama seems completely unaware of how many of the policies he is trying to impose have been tried before, in many times and places around the world, and have failed time and again.

Fact-Free Liberals: Part II
Thomas Sowell | Jan 22, 2014

Words seem to carry far more weight than facts among those liberals who argue as if rent control laws actually control rents and gun control laws actually control guns.

Fact-Free Liberals: Part III
Thomas Sowell | Jan 23, 2014

Since this year will mark the 50th anniversary of the "war on poverty," we can expect many comments and commemorations of this landmark legislation in the development of the American welfare state.

The actual signing of the "war on poverty" legislation took place in August 1964, so the 50th anniversary is some months away. But there have already been statements in the media and in politics proclaiming that this vast and costly array of anti-poverty programs "worked."

Fact-Free Liberals: Part IV
Thomas Sowell | Jan 24, 2014

One of the things that attracted me to the political left, as a young man, was a belief that leftists were for "the people." Fortunately, I was also very interested in the history of ideas -- and years of research in that field repeatedly brought out the inescapable fact that many leading thinkers on the left had only contempt for "the people."

That has been true from the 18th century to the present moment. Even more surprising, I discovered over the years that leading thinkers on the opposite side of the ideological spectrum had more respect for ordinary people than people on the left who spoke in their name.
