What is that? A brewery?No cows?Are we still in Wisconsin? (I know I had to ask. "Are we there, yet" was one of those sentences that would drive my dad good and crazy.)
So, it looks like Anthohy Weiner has been caught cheating on his taxes too. What is it with these Democrats? It's no wonder they want all these tax increases. They're cheating on their taxes ... so what do they care!
"Are we still in Wisconsin?"Look closely. The Capitol is in the picture. This is the eastern vantage point.
No, Carol Herman..this is the abandoned Royster fertilizer plant on the eastside of Madison.
I thought the most interesting story of the afternoonn was that NBC (GE) decided to edit "Under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance in 2 different spots in a patriotic promo for US Open."Huge Fail"
If you have to claim "it's still cool to like Obama" then no, it's no longer cool to like Obama.You know what's still cool, though?Jobs.Teen unemployment has soared to 33% in Washington state.No wonder it's not cool to bring up Obama any more.
Saw Super 8 last night with my son. Fun movie. Spent the day cleaning out my garage. Not so fun.
"Spent the day cleaning out my garage. Not so fun."Really?I spent the day cleaning out GarageMahal and his union buddy AlphaLiberal. Had a great time.
Drudge was just tweeting about Rufus Wainwright, adorable!
NBC cuts out "under God" from video of students saying the Pledge of Alliegance in the lead-in to their coverage of the US Open. They've been forced to issue a non-apology apology.
Thanks to Freemarket, which is sort of like Craigslist, except that everything is free, I got rid of a pile of limestone I never seemed to get around to using.
Thanks, Ann. I see it!Wow, for an abandoned plant there's no graffiti. Nothing is busted. Litter doesn't enter the scene. Why did the Royster Fertilizer Plant go under?
@Drill SGTFlorence King had some interesting comments on the pledge issue back in 2002.I don't get very worked up over it, since the "under God" phrase is a relatively new addition.@JasonTitus would like Rufus.
abandoned Royster fertilizer plant on the eastside of MadisonSome might say the production of fertilizer has moved into town
Windbag, It may not be a huge deal to you, but it was done twice in 2 different spots in the same promo, that makes it purposeful IMHO and in the minds of many others and we ask why?It wasn't an accident, so why was it done?and who ordered it?
You mean, Nevadabob, that you can't have $40,000 in deductions, on a $156,000 yearly income?I'd bet "the bulge" could'a been all the daily receipts weiner saved up. That he thought he was pushing into his pocket.You know, if some of those deductions are medical, they'll be larger next year.
That the Peacock did it, but apologized without saying for what specifically (what I heard earlier), shows a cowardice somewhat surprising, given the arrogance of the Lefties WRT religion.And, yes, it was deliberate.nevadabob said...So, it looks like Anthohy Weiner has been caught cheating on his taxes too. What is it with these Democrats?Apparently, the Demos think only the taxpayers should pay taxes. The Weiner joins Geithner, Terrible Tiny Tommy Daschle, and a good many others, although he may pay for it.He left a lot of people hanging in the wind.PS Interesting photo, Madame, an old factory backed by clouds on the horizon?A metaphor for the US economy?
Unscythed dog pic.
"Under God" was added by Eisenhower, back in 1954.I learned the Pledge, which was recited daily, while I went to elementary school. So, my tongue always skips over "Under God." It's not how I learned to say it.At least, back in 1942, when I was only 3, school kids had been saying the Pledge, using a Nazi salute. (Whew. I never even saw it done that way!) But school kids in the 1930's did.Oh, at Ebbets Field, men would take off their hats, and hold there hand over their hearts. Because a ballgame didn't start until after everyone stood for the flag salute.
"You mean, Nevadabob, that you can't have $40,000 in deductions, on a $156,000 yearly income?"Experts say it's extremely suspicious and indicates probable tax fraud. Additionally, Anthony Weiner refuses to allow anyone to examine his fraudulent tax returns even though we pay his salary, so that's also highly suspicious and goes to his credibility.It's pretty obvious what's going on here. He's cheating on his taxes and the NY Post has caught him.He's a fucking tax piker in addition to being a pervert.
Carol_Herman said... I'd bet "the bulge" could'a been all the daily receipts weiner saved up. That he thought he was pushing into his pocket.On the other hand, a deduction on your personal taxes has to be an actual personal expense, not one that you already paid via you campaign funds or a Cingressional expense account. For example, let's say your home address is listed as your offical political address. You pay part of the expenses there with political funds, well then you can't double claim those expenses as personal...
The Pledge is stupid, June 3 1999 John and Ken show real audio 31 minutes.It starts slow with an interview with a lawyer and mom whose kid didn't want to recite the pledge, but after 10 minutes angry callers call in and it gets good.I think the Pledge is stupid too. Who would think conservatives would have that as any kind of litmus test.
"For example, let's say your home address is listed as your offical political address. You pay part of the expenses there with political funds, well then you can't double claim those expenses as personal."And let's further say that's a fraudulent claim.Now, you're not only cheating on your taxes, but you're committing a felony.Which is precisely what Anthony Weiner is doing.He's claiming his local Congressional office is in his home in Forest Hills, when it is not.He's lying on his tax return and cheating us taxpayers out of what he owes us.He's a common criminal and he needs to be investigated and prosecuted by the IRS and Justice Department for his tax crimes.
"Who would think conservatives would have that as any kind of litmus test."The litmus test has nothing to do with the pledge.It has to do with liberals like NBC removing the "under God" part from it.Our nation was founded, under God. The Declaration of Indepence says the word God in the first paragraph. Preamble: When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. Democrats want to erase "God" from the Constitution, the Declearation of Independence and the Pledge.They're God deniers. That's the hypocrisy. That's the litmus test.Now why would liberals be constantly caught doing this? What's their motivation? Why do they always apologize when caught? As if they've done something wrong?Why do they act guilty?
Plants that can't compete, that don't make money, close.Owners and workers can "wish" all they want, but wishing never paid a single bill.
NBC gets economics wrong and knows it, so as to keep their moron audience.That's what to judge NBC for, not some flag etiquette drivel.
"Thousands in Portland take to bikes for naked ride"Thousands? Thousands? Madison, you should be ashamed of your pathetic little showing. "Shame, shame, shame" is right."I am going all the way" nude, said Xandi Silvaggi, adding, "it is all about saving the environment."Oh yes it is, sweetheart. I bet a naked girl named Xandi is lots of fun!
I went to my parents cottage for Fathers Day. It is on Lake Delton.Drove through the Dells-that place is such a red neck tourist trap. It is just so absolutely horrible but I was loving gawking at all the undersirables, so hideous and non exempt and uneducated....but I loved it in a fucked up kind of way. Also, I saw more colored people walking on the streets of Wisconsin Dells then I have seen the past 9 months in Madison. The thought of dipping my manicured toes in the same water as the vermin is enough to make me barf.Went to a fabulous, yes fab restaurant callled The Cheese Factory-no not Cheesecake Factory. It is vegetarian...in Wisconsin Dells...surrounded by Paul Bunyon and Pizza Warehouses.All the employees in the Wisconsin Dells are of eastern european persuasion-definitely some hot ones too. They are the thin ones too.The rest of them are fatty cheese heads and minority Chicago trash.
"I bet a naked girl named Xandi is lots of fun!"What is it with Democrats wanting to be naked in front of children doing child-like activities like bike riding?Bunch of pedos.
All the fattys have fat little kids do.Never ceases to amaze me that someone would fuck those hideous fattys.How to they even find the hog and cooch?
Here's what I am noticing. Well managed companies work really hard at lowering their fixed expenses. Most have long been partnering with suppliers who are also interested in keeping costs down too. When they all put their heads together, they might try to start up in a new location with less regulation and taxation that makes better sense to the manufacturer and the supplier, but more importantly, satisfies their customers...Quality product at lowest cost.From what I've been reading in my local paper, these companies are offering nice relocation packages too. These companies really WANT to take their experienced workers with them. The comments section seems to support this as fact.
The Lefties usually get their way when someone's been "offended" at something everyone else has been doing for years. Either that or a couple of parents decide their little darling will be traumatized for life if (s)he has to at least stand respectfully, if not join in, on something like the Pledge.Litmus test? When Teddy Kennedy pushed to have MLK's B-day made a national holiday, anyone who didn't want Veterans' Day demoted from being a Federal holiday or who thought making one ethnic observance a national holiday was a bad idea was automatically raaacist.So much for "stupidity".
"How to they even find the hog and cooch?"Ha haThis really made me laugh.Just something about you, Titus, you little pervert.
Trust me. I could find your hog in the dark.
But the really FUN part of "finding your hog in the dark?"Well...hm? How to put this exactly?
Actually, that is the MG&E power plant just a few blocks east of Downtown, located in the Capitol East District (a slowly but assuredly an area that will see much economic development activity in the future). This plant is converting from coal to gas later this year, early 2012. The nice wall you see was put there to help keep dust from the coal piles from blowing into the neighborhoods and bike path.Royster-Clark plant is a 2-3 miles further east from this location along the bike path.
OK! It seems like Althouse is throwing up a picture and the rest of us are "improvising" as it suits our current mindset.Either that, or she is quite the businesswoman, who has in fact figured out that Andrew Sullivan's returning series "View From My Window" shouldn't be missed by anyone with an on-line connection, regardless of personal politics.Don't misunderstand, I LOVE Althouse's photography of Madison. Frankly, it's one of my primary reasons for coming here. But honestly, you have to see what Andrew Sullivan has going on with his commenters who submit pictures taken from inside their homes around the world.
That is the Blount Street power plant, which is 140 thousand years old. They take State Capitol protestors there and blend them with shredded auto tires and coal, which burns really clean.
The struggles from the past are ghost stories.The struggles ahead are unknown-unknowns.But the present is to be enjoyed.Including what my dad loved ... just a day driving around. Destinations didn't matter. He just loved being in the driver's seat. In a car that had both a brake and a clutch. Neat memories for a Father's Day. You know, Ann, you make Madison look so inviting!
Well, at least Weiner FILED!Timothy Geithner didn't even do that much.Maybe, for the next go-round, Weiner can be hired by Turbo Tax to be their spokesman?We're talking about the 2010 tax return. By then Weiner wasn't even single! Maybe, Weiner just wrote off his wedding expenses, because he had to invite so many politicians?
Why is it that NO ONE seems to want to talk about jobs?
"Timothy Geithner didn't even do that much."Geithner did file. He just lied about his sources of income and left off income he'd received from his employer.Illegally.It was felony tax evasion ... not merely tax avoidance.Timothy Geither should be in jail. He is a criminal. And I won't be voluntarily paying my federal taxes again until he is in jail.If THEY don't have to pay taxes, then I REFUSE to.
... we're so far from all the struggles of the past.That's kind of the problem isn't it? I mean we are but to many people we aren't and never will be. I was around back in the 1960's and 1970's, and I know what race relations were like and I know how badly polluted the environment was.Note the "was."Maybe the biggest problem with liberalism is that it was successful. Why have unions declined in membership, if not the fact that they really aren't needed anymore?But if you read the African-American columnists who publish in the Washington Post the United States in 2011 is no different from Mississippi in 1951 (the reality that there is a genuine African-American as President notwithstanding). And the earth is as polluted as its ever been. And deep down inside every goy is a snarling anti-semite just waiting to burst forth.One gets tired of all the drama, but let's face it -- drama is fun. For the liberals anyway, not for the rest of us who have to pay for their fantasies and then clean up after them.
Here's your fun girl (I think). The name is spelled Zandi on Facebook. I doubt there is someone in the U.S. named Zandi Silvaggi and another one named Xandi Silvaggi, but I could be wrong. I don't have a facebook account so I couldn't look further. Someone who does might find something interesting.
"was that NBC (GE)"As far as I know, GE is out and Comcast is in. I think that deal went through a month or two ago.
And the earth is as polluted as its ever been.The really horrible pollution has simply been shifted to China and other 3rd world countries. These are the externalities of our 1st world standard of living - to pollute the hell out of some other place, sight unseen.
The factory is symbolic of America's lost manufacturing base. It's pretty fucking poignant if you ask me.

The Silent Majority Walk and the Naked Bike RideLoverGirl - Teena MarieHave you ever seen the guy with his car seat as far back as it can go, right hand barely hanging at 6 o'clock on the steering wheel while his head and whatever is bodily available leans as far as it could to his right where the passenger female happens to sit with her foot either up the passenger dashboard or out the window.. both uncomfortably looking anyway.Let not be surprised when politics goes theatrical.
Nothing, and I mean nothing sends me straight to Fox Network faster than Jon Stewart suddenly appearing on the Comedy Channel. Then when those bolsos de duchas grandes at Fox have the tremendous stupidity to poison their own well by interviewing Jon Stewart over there, and make a BFD about the interview with all kinds of followup analysis, it's enough to put me off the teevee altogether. But first I end up hearing Guy Fieri croaking "looka'thaaaat" 15 million times in the span of four minutes. With his trademark gaudy bling and bowling shirt combination, short pants and sneakers. Guy, your colorist called and said, "Make an appointment." * click * But that's okay. Here, have yourself some mango salsa and homemade tortilla chips.

Royster-Clark was bought out a few years ago by Agrium, a huge Canadian fertilizer company, that seems to be trying to lose R-C's business here in the Southeast. My employers used to buy most of our product from them, but service is down and prices are up, and the Agrium rep is a damn yankee jerk.

"Remember, you were young once and you had a heart and you loved everybody."(You're Puttin') A Rush on Me - Stephanie MillsThe forces against Walker cant wait until the regular election cycle to do their bidding.

Chipper,Everyone's going on about Jon Stewart's criticisms of FOX, and getting angry, while I'm happy because he also admitted this:“The conservative movement that has risen up over the last 40 years,…has decided that they have been victims of a witch hunt. And to some extent they’re right. People on the right are called racists and they’re called things with an ease that I am uncomfortable with and homophobic and all those other things. I think that that is absolutely something that they have a real right to be angry about and to feel that they have been vilified for those things. And I’ve been guilty of some of those things myself.”See? The Left are a bunch of bigots - and so is Jon Stewart. He admitted it. Now cheer up and spread that puppy around.Also, here's a few videos of some of the bands/artists I've worked with over the years. I'll be putting them up, occasionally, as my friend sends them to me.
Crack - fact is many on the rights are bigots and homophobes. I mean admit it, homophobia is absolutely rampant among conservatives.
The NYT goes after Clarence Thomas over "an unusual, and ethically sensitive, friendship."Justice Thomas, 62, was born and raised near the cannery overlooking the Moon River, where it was not uncommon for babies to rock in bassinets made of crab baskets while their mothers shucked oysters.The Times is reaching out to Thomas.. they believe that because Thomas is black he cannot possibly think for himself. So they want to know.. "necesito saver y quiero saver si me amas tu, si puedo ser tu amor?".. because that is waht you are supposed to do.. Thomas?.. wake up Thomas! you are supposed to be one of us.I've read that racism is incapable of taking in and adjusting to new information.I submit that the New York Times has never and will never accept that Thomas is a conservative.A more deceptively acceptable racist rag is impossible to find.

it's like waking up in a cold tent alone, instead of in his arms.It could happen to youThe next election shall not and it will not be defined by none of that dreamy stuff that so conclusively defined the Obama election.
"I mean admit it, homophobia is absolutely rampant among conservatives."It pales in comparison to homo-homphobia among liberals.

@alex"Crack - fact is many on the rights are bigots and homophobes. I mean admit it, homophobia is absolutely rampant among conservatives."MEDIA MEME ALERT!!!!Alex, have you lost your mind? Wow. Homophobes? I do not see conservatives as 'homophobes', rather, I see a certain type of person that simply doesn't like the in-your-face 'you must accept my sexuality and teach your kids its fine' types. Big difference!!!Painting conservatives as homophobic is completely asinine and I hope you either had too many Guinness on Father's Day or my sarcasm detector is broken.God save the Queen!!!!

Mea culpa, mea culpa. I was wrong, that is the MGE plant, not Royster. Good eye for picking up on that, folks.
Thanks for the Courtney Pine, Lem, it's great.
Now a word from the Casey Anthony courtroom:Judge Belvin Perry's dance-card is filling up with reversible errors. So much so he's been given to second-guessing a potential ruling of the Florida Supreme Court - predicting the court will side with the state and against Casey Anthony's right to a fair trial.Which suggests that Judge Perry may be seriously considering taking to the dance floor with Ms Margaret Mistrial and waltzing right out of court. Moral: The benefit of doubt always accrues to the defendant, Your Honor.
I grew up a few blocks from Royster's. It does not have smokestacks like that. That's MG&E.
Alex,Crack - fact is many on the rights are bigots and homophobes. I mean admit it, homophobia is absolutely rampant among conservatives.Why would that be your take away from Stewart's quote?
