On Proposal would reduce benefits to unemployed
"God commands us to work for our food. And many other scriptures about the lazy and condemning them. So read it before you quote it."
What did Jesus say? Your entire existence should revolve around preparing for eternal life in God's Kingdom, according to Jesus. He says little about working or getting payed to work.
Of course, like every religion, people pick and choose what suits them, this is no different.
@nOOb-a welcomed voice of reason.
The war on the poor continues.
On BTC hopes to expand industrial mechanics program
You have to have the employer base, locally, to employ these people beyond $12-15 an hour. I don't see that happening.
I've never been terribly impressed with BTC or it's programs. You're better off heading to Madison or Milwaukee.
On Panel passes Wis. food stamp work requirement
I think we need mandatory drug testing for Gazette commenters.
On Rock County officials show off $195,000 armored vehicle
Enjoy the militarization of your local police departments. Looks like Rock Co is getting in on the action too. Using money from unconstitutional drug seizure and prohibition laws to purchase military grade armor. Disgusting.
On God's side
It doesn't matter what you say, who you quote, or the validity of the the facts, the believer's mind is locked and loaded.My advice is a simple Bible quote, "...flee from the believers..."
Fixed it for you.
On Wis. lawmaker set to unveil drone legislation
More unneeded legislation that will actually hurt job growth. Right now, China is leading the world in this technology. There many uses for these aircraft:

People are using them in S. America to catch illegal logging, people are using them in Africa to combat poaching.
It is magnitudes cheaper, and safer to get one of these in the air, as opposed to a full sized aircraft with a photographer, and that is the rub. There are powerful interests that DO NOT want you to have access or the legal authority to fly these because of economic interests.
I never seen such a knee jerk reaction to what can be a positive thing. Back just a few years ago, they were just called remote controlled aircraft and there were no problems. Now, we attach the word "drone" to it, and people lose their minds.
It is not illegal for the police or anyone else to fly over your house and take pictures, but they want to legislate whether or not you can by a small flying device, put a camera on it and fly it in your backyard.
Guess what, these things sound like 10,000 angry bees when they get anywhere close to you, so the idea of them hovering over your backyard close enough to see you sunbathing in the nude is a bit absurd.
This is legislation being put forth by people have no idea of what they are doing, or what it's about. Once again, the "less government is better crowd" manages to make more government, Dems and Repubs.
On Janesville church builds symbol for community, travelers
How many times in the Bible does it tell you to worship at a cross?
On New head of troubled agency resigns
So here we have an agency created to handout out taxpayer money to businesses (but, government shouldn't pick the winners and losers!!), and we're shocked to learn it's a complete farce, and on top of that, the person picked to head the agency owes $36K in back taxes AND $8k in fraudulently obtained unemployment compensation.
Oh, that's grand. Nearly every WI dept that Walker appointed his buddies to is now headed by incompetent people who lack either the skill and/or intelligence to tie their own shoes. That's what you get when you let the corporate funded Tea Party in the front door folks. Enjoy.
On Tensions between bicyclists, drivers
I can say that it's not just folks in the Rock co. area that are hostile to bikers and runners or walkers, it's certainly a problem the entire area generally has.
Having lived in bike and pedestrian friendly areas like Cali and the NW, just the road and traffic designs are pretty atrocious and hostile to anything but cars, that's not even talking about drivers.
Rules of the road? That's funny. Try actually exercising your rights as a bicyclist on some of these roads and intersections and see how many horns, death glares and hostile attitudes get thrown your way.
Almost every single country road has absolutely 0 shoulder, so if you don't keep your tire on that skinny white line on the side, you are playing with your life. The Midwest in general has always been about a decade behind either the east and west coast, and this is no exception, excluding some of the nicer cities like Madison and The Twin cities.
On Rhinelander paper mill could close
The paper industry has been slowing down for years, but the average American still uses more paper than nearly any other person on earth, and around 40% of all world wild logging goes into the making of paper. Even though we're much better at recycling, paper is still a huge component of landfills, which is a waste.
Not only that, most of the paper that is made comes from trees cut from regular forests, not plantations, and once cut and replanted, biodiversity is drastically reduced. It's difficult to treat trees and forests as a crop.
Why are these paper plants having trouble? Increased costs and imported paper.
