On Benghazi redacted
This is a really good, seemingly balanced article. The author cuts the administration a lot of slack, but that's okay in the interest of being credible and balanced.-The problem in my mind occurs when you go one level deeper. There were highly classified activities going on in Benghazi that we will never know about -- ever. These activities were being done in our national interest, but were extremely sensitive from an international perspective.-So here is my dilemna:1. On one hand, the administration is in a pinch because divulging the real information (classified) could actually hurt our nation. So, there is a valid reason to purposefully lie to us for our own good.2. On the other hand, I fundamentally detest being officially lied to by my Government and the mass media (The Truth Shall Set You Free). This one incident wouldn't be so bad if it didn't seem like our Government was SO corrupt SO often. Most of the people I know are way more afraid of the IRS/DOJ/FBI and Wis. DOR than they are Islamic terrorists.-If WE would vote in a bunch more independent congressmen, perhaps everything that happens wouldn't have to be colored by the two-party system ("Hey, all you mice, stop voting for either a black cat or a white cat. Vote for a mouse for a change").
On Supreme Court adds step to OWI arrests
Uncle_Jesse is right on!! There are other ways to make a legitimate OWI charge stick without forcible taking someone's blood. Do We The People get a vote in this, or do we have to throw them all out? Rock County should trash the electronic warrant idea. Period.
The local response by the Sheriff's office to this ruling is troubling! They are dismissing the whole point that our civil liberties must be protected and have come up with an electronic workaround so they can thumb their noses at the intent of this Supreme Court ruling.-It might not be so bad if we could trust law enforcement, but we can't. With illegal cavity searches being dealt with now after the fact and widespread sex with jail inmates in the news, you have to wonder how much LE misbehavior will never see the light of day?-I hope the public is provided statistics on which judges participate in this sham. I will never vote for Spoden again.
On Should state enact sobriety checkpoints?
I have a proposal that might work but haven't been able to get anyone to listen. They should simply require that bars have breath testers available that charge a nominal fee ($1.00 maybe). I don't think anyone really wants to drive when they are over the limit, but the nature of alcohol makes it hard to determine where you are. The current situation is like killing someone if they bounce a check, but not giving them any way to check their account balance.-All the military officer and NCO clubs have breathalyzer machines. I think people would use them voluntarily if they were available.
On Hail Armageddon
Best article I've read in a long time.
On Mining bill passage disappoints Cullen
Does Senator Cullen have any idea how many freaking acres of wetland we have in northern Wisconsin? Ever drive around up there? Nothing but swamp.
We should be paying the mining company to fill some of it, or at least be grateful. This is a case of using the positive environmental connotations associated with the term "wetlands" in a situation that doesn't make sense.
On Candidate Fallone: Court is 'broken'
The two-party system (not even mentioned in our constitution) is at the root of our dysfunctional Government. Shame on the Gazette for printing an article that names those parties so many times when the topic shouldn't be addressed at all in a non-partisan election!
On Evansville bar makes changes to gain approval for gun show
"An anonymous caller expressed concerns to a 911 dispatcher." What a wus -- made a lot of hassle for this business and extra work for government employees about something that was no big deal. Is that "anonymous caller" from around Evansville or perhaps someone who should move back to where they came from?
On Hacker compromises health care records
Sorry Joe65, hg is right on. That is EXACTLY what happens way too often.
On Flawed ATF sting in Milwaukee draws ire
This has got to stop!! Time and time again, these government agencies CREATE and inspire crimes that otherwise would not have happened - but that aspect always seems to be downplayed by the media.-Enough is enough!
