On Wisconsin committee to vote on junk food stamp bill
Wait. Wait. Wait. So I am reading these posts and am honestly getting a kick out of people stating they "buy their food stamps"? If you can afford to buy them then we shouldn't be directing taxes to the program because you can pay for your own without assistance.. Right?? Also, I have an issue with me not having to ask for help but having people in DC that doesn't know me at all telling me that I can't get a King Size Candy Bar when I do work out, stay in shape, and actively looked for work when I didn't have a job. But I can be regulated but you don't feel you have to be REALLY? Oh and btw I do support random drug testing of anyone on State Aid as well as monitoring the number of dependents to claim while on the program. This is fair due to anyone working is subject to random drug testing. Why can't those that are collecting Aide?
On Report: Bill would set an 8-year path to residency
usaret- I hear if you use E-verify to prove someone is a legal resident against an illegal resident you are fined in Federal Court!! Some Illegal Immigrants have more than one Social Security Number and none of them are theirs.
Ok so lets worry about Citizenship when we already have a path in place but we have been operating without a budget for how many years now? Dave Ramsey is right when he says we need to live within our BUDGET! Wait we are STILL WITHOUT ONE!! LET'S WORK ON THAT FIRST???
On Wis official says regulatory loophole causes fraud
Wow! I am disgusted that everyone can sit back and blame the Governor. Let's get one thing straight... The Governor unless he was specifically working on this "fraud" foster care companies books wouldn't know what they were doing. This makes me laugh because we have current politicians in our own state that are taking advantage of us all every single day and have launched a "war" on the middle class but not one person is doing anything about it at all!! NOT ONE!! Instead of crying about something we can't fix let me ask this!!!
On Oops! Local TV viewers hear replay of phony warning of zombie attack
They were wanting their free phones they were promised back in November 2012 if they voted a certain way. LOL
On Are we clearing sidewalks well enough?
Has anyone actually went to Burger King off Milton Avenue? Their parking lot is nothing but ice. There has or ever is any salt thrown down. I asked the manager Tuesday night about this problem and they informed me that they have a contract with a guy out of Northern IL and if there is not 6 inches or more he won't come plow or salt (isn't worth his time and money). This was confirmed by the district manager whom misled me over the phone that she didn't know about the problem, and during the conversation slipped and stated the 6 inch rule that he had told her that day. They are paying him to have an exclusive contract for all 3 or 4 of her stores. That should be a fine or two. We won't be going over to that restaurant anymore!!
On Janesville School District considering incentive pay for administrators
yada... Thanks for stopping by and reading my posts. I am not a Walker Lemming as you have stated. There is a difference between you and I, let me elaborate.. I worked for UAW 95 here in Janesville, WI, where I saw Mike Sheridan and the UAW cronyism at its finest. I saw a man with barely an education get elected to a State office where he made a mockery of all of us UAW 95 members. Also, like any politician I don't blindly follow anyone. There are numerous points that I agree and disagree with about every candidate because we are all human and no one agrees on everything all the time. I do however believe that GOV Walker has done a great deal of good things for the State, better than how Barrett would have done. I AM AWAKE!! I vote by Candidate not play Party Politics.
On LAB: UW System overpaid health premiums, pensions
I think that just like when the State Workforce Development overpays you then they send you to Collections. I think that Retirement is one that they should take back through collections. This is OUR TAXES that we overpaid to the people they knew they shouldn't have received the overpayment.
I say the district should find out a few things first. 1.) What Administrators went to Madison on the taxpayers money to picket, and protest for their own personal gain?2.) What Administrators allowed their teachers to turn in fake sick leave slips to go to Madison to protest and picket?3.) What was done to the teachers that they knew were picketing in Madison instead of teaching our children so much that the school closed its doors?4.) When we look at what is being done to change the lazy tenure attitude within the Janesville School District. This is one thing that needs to be fixed. 5.) Why do they deserve a raise and don't give me the song and dance from the Union. I am a tax payer and these are a few issues that I would like to point out. Yes it was the teachers legal right to do a recall for the Governor, (not during school hours, nor on the sidewalks before school )but they cost the State a lot of money in doing so. In doing so our tax dollars that could have gone to give back to the communities that have been effected by the lack of jobs within our State. These are just a few things that I am questioning.
On Should motorists pay based on miles driven?
I drive 90/94 daily and Friday,Saturday,Sunday I can't tell you how many rude Illinois Driver's I see on Wisconsin Roads. Why not get a Toll System and make them pay like we do when we drive down to Rockford? It would make jobs, and built revenue for the State! Also maybe make Out of State Residence that Vacation here pay an extra tax say at the Wisconsin Dells or State Wide Even!!! It is something to think about.
