The August 17 Baltimore conference is sponsored by B4U-ACT, a group of pro-pedophile mental health professionals and sympathetic activists. According to the conference brochure, the event will examine “ways in which minor-attracted persons [pedophiles] can be involved in the DSM 5 revision process” and how the popular perceptions of pedophiles can be reframed to encourage tolerance.
Researchers from Harvard University, the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Louisville, and the University of Illinois will be among the panelists at the conference.

The new tax scheme, designed to help fund transportation spending, would determine your mileage by installing electronic equipment on your car. This would involve monitoring your location and how far you’ve traveled.

The sexuality of Bert and Ernie -- perhaps the kid show's most popular characters -- has long been debated since the roommates sleep in the same room and constantly bicker. The petition also asks that "Sesame Street" producers consider adding a transgender character to the show, which premiered in 1969 on Public Broadcasting Service. The online campaign also has a companion Facebook page that has attracted as least 350 supporters as of Wednesday.

For Wisconsin liberals, who expected to knock out at least three Republicans, it was a tough vote to swallow. Leading up to yesterday's recall, Democrats had thrown everything they had at the six swing districts, knocking on some 200,000 doors and outspending Republicans by a two-to-one margin. Local officials say that more than $25 million have been pumped into the races from other states--but even that seemed to have little bearing on the outcome. Apparently, outside money couldn't buy inside influence. "Voters gave us a mandate last fall... They back us up again [Tuesday]," the GOP's John Hogan said, "Voters told us loud and clear, 'Stay the course. Things are working.'" ....

WisPolitics just reporterd that there are 29 different groups spending $30 mllion dollars around the current recall elections. In most cases, Club for Growth is the only truthtelling group on the other side. We're OK with those odds. But the left gets their money from out of state groups like the AFL-CIO. We don't have an endless supply of forced union dues, we must rely on individuals who voluntarily contribute.............
There’s been good news about the results achieved in the brief seven months since the Walker administration took office. Next Tuesday, August 9th, will determine whether the good news keep coming, or whether Walker's limited-government agenda will itself be limited to what we’ve seen so far.................

So there’s nothing surprising about the campaign emails of Shelly Moore, a Democrat hoping to unseat Republican State Senator Sheila Harsdorf in a recall election on August 9th. What’s noteworthy is that Moore, a teacher in the Ellsworth School District, sent and received these emails using school facilities, allegedly on paid, school-district time. The very existence of these emails demonstrates contempt for taxpayers.

Soros had a friendship with Ginsberg, the beatnik/hippie who campaigned with Leary in the ’60s and ’70s for the legalization of drugs. Boyer said Soros credits Ginsberg with educating him on why drugs should be legalized. “Soros and Ginsberg became friends in the mid-1980s,” explained Boyer, “so much so that Ginsberg was a regular weekend visitor over at Soros’s East Side penthouse, right up until his death in 1997.”
It was his money that funded the original California ballot initiative back in the 1990s to create the so-called “marijuana clinics” that have now popped up in scores of other states. Soros has continued to support liberal causes, including hate crime legislation, taking away churches’ tax-exempt status, and removing the prison system entirely in favor of rehabilitation over incarceration.
Alinsky’s second book, Rules for Radicals, published in 1971, lays the groundwork for how to gain power through undemocratic means, like stuffing ballot boxes, shaking down corporations for money through guilt, or protesting in front of banks because they don’t give out enough mortgages to the poor.
Boyer said Alinsky also coined the phrase “social justice,” a sort of Robin Hood idea of stealing from the rich to help the poor. “Alinsky wasn’t as noble as Robin Hood,” Boyer said. “He wasn’t giving to the poor. He was giving to himself.” Alinsky helped bring about Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty, and over $300 billion of taxpayer money was spent. “A lot of that money didn’t go to the poor,” said Boyer. “A lot of it was funneled into Alinsky’s – quote – ‘social organizations’ back in Chicago.”
Later as the hippie movement took hold and hair grew longer, Alinsky was appalled. He wrote Rules for Radicals as a means to show the younger generation how to effectively make change. The first rule was to get a haircut. “Alinsky said you need to blend in in order to infiltrate the society,” said Boyer. “One of the key places he wanted to infiltrate was the church. He said radicals needed to penetrate the churches, pretend to be Christians, but then start spreading the idea that the church isn’t doing enough for these particular social groups.” It was through this that the Christian left was born.

Representative Jeff Stone is working on the final draft of the Voter ID bill. Even though this bill accomplishes a lot of necessary reforms it is still lacking in IMPORTANT REFORMS that must be included:
1) MAKE THIS BILL MANDATORY FOR THE RECALL ELECTIONS ESPECIALLY VOTER ID AND 28 DAY RESIDENCY.
2) People assisting voters at the polls should be required to show their IDs, sign the ballot and poll book.
3) The clerk should have the right to hire qualified poll workers from their county not just their municipality.
4) The sharing of our personal information should only be with border states, not every state, to help stop "border jumping."
5) The request for an absentee ballot should be for each election not for an entire year.

This is likely the last chance to express your opinion, as the Transportation committee has not moved on AB 36 and its joint bill in Senate SB -25. Please call/Email the R's today/tomorrow morning.
Use your own words and ideas here's a few also:
Budget Bill - History and action
The RTA bill was pulled into the 2009 Budget Bill and passed with little discussion- it is a poorly written bill and should be Repealed the same way it was created- in the 2011 Budget bill. Repeal now and let those that favor RTA's use the normal legislative process for the future. Prove via referendum there is local support for specific types of Transit and taxing themselves to pay for it before making a new statewide law allowing it.
Dane county- Unelected, appointed pro-train RTA Board still has taxing power to raise up to ½ % sales tax to pay for commuter rail- still in their Phase two plan. Also has condemnation and bonding ( borrowing) power at this time. This would raise taxes in Dane county approx. $32-36 million a year forever and increasing each year the economy grows. No new taxes, no new borrowing, no new taxing authority is needed in Dane county or the state.
New County Exec. of Dane Cty, Parisi is on record strongly in favor of commuter and "Car speed Rail. County Board on record in favor of commuter rail. OPPOSITION to Comm. rail shown in county board hearings, on Nov 2, 2010 44 or 45 Dane municipalities rejected commuter rail- voting no 72% and higher with a specific referendum on commuter rail for Madison. Most of the Madison MPO area has still not had a referendum on commuter rail for Madison.
Budget- The Kenosha-Racine- Milwaukee (KRM) RTA for commuter rail has $100 million in bonding authority now and would jack car rental fees to outrageous levels hoping to cover the subsidy levels needed for rail. The state is $3.6 billion in debt, no need to borrow for a train that duplicates the existing Chicago- Mil Amtrak, the bus and highway system at a much higher cost per passenger mile.

A program touted as “a bold, nationwide, social change effort” is being launched by Planned Parenthood to alter family dialogue about sexuality and encourage parents to ease their children’s transition into a sexually active lifestyle.
Entitled “Real Life. Real Talk,” the program was first used in Connecticut, New York, Maine, and Arizona between 2004 and 2008, and its nationwide distribution is now being funded by groups that include the Ford Foundation.
The stated goal of the program is “to positively change the social climate in communities” with “more open, honest, and balanced talk” about sex; it targets parents and guardians of children as young as 8 years old.
“A more positive social climate will, over time, help to ensure that people — particularly young people — have adequate information and services to enable them to make healthy sexual choices,” states Planned Parenthood, noting that “getting people to talk openly ... about ... sensitive or stigmatized” issues is always “a critical step in making social change happen.”

Christopher J. Nelson, administrator of the New Holstein School District, worked in Madison for five years and left citing health reasons and disagreements with administrative proposals to eliminate athletic positions, according to a 2005 report in the Wisconsin State Journal. But the source said the discovery of pornography on Nelson's computer in the Madison district "led to … parting ways."
The source noted the images were not child pornography, so no criminal investigation was done and Nelson was allowed to resign his post. Nelson was the district's coordinator of physical education, health and athletics.

2. Madison Emeritus program only pays 19% of salary but the retirees get to be retirees and not work for the money that is paid on top of their regular pension.
3. Milwaukee Teachers Union has collectively bargained regular pension and “supplemental pensions”
4. Milwaukee Teachers Union sacrifices 482 jobs rather than take a cut for its members. Among the victims is a teacher of the year who didn't have the seniority to stay.
5. Teachers Union fights Cedarburg School Board over their attempt to fire a teacher for viewing porn at work.
6. Madison pays bus driver 159k via collectively bargained overtime rules.
7. Wausau Union fights allowing a man to be volunteer crossing guard. Principal Steve Miller says, "He said, you know, this gives me a reason to get up in the morning to come and help these kids in the neighborhood."
8. Prison guards use loophole of pairing extra shifts @ OT pay and calling in sick to scam taxpayers out of extra pay for the same (or less) work. http://www.jsonline.com/news/wisconsin/29511574.html
The good news is that Governor Scott Walker's reforms have been worth the fight on the policy merits. The conventional media wisdom is that Mr. Walker "overreached" by proposing limits on the ability of government unions to bargain collectively for benefits. But before he offered those proposals, Democrats and unions had refused to support his plan that public workers pay more for their pensions and health care. Only later did they concede that these changes were reasonable and will spare thousands of public workers from layoffs.

Our religious traditions speak clearly about the fundamental right of workers in the public and private sectors to be organized into unions which can defend their interests. We are pleased to see that Methodist Bishop Lee, Catholic Archbishop Listecki, Rabbi Biatch and ELCA Bishop Burnside are among those who have spoken out against the radical policy changes being proposed in the “budget repair” process, which would take away long-established rights from many Wisconsin workers.

"An undesirable result of dual affiliations could be that a conflict could place our parishioners in a very difficult position of having to choose between their Catholic Church authority and another parallel organization," Ricken said in a statement. "Therefore, I am directing our parishes to withdraw their corporate membership in these organizations, effective July 1, 2011."
The directive will affect 15 of the diocese's 157 parishes, including eight in Brown County and seven in Outagamie and Winnebago counties. The order won't preclude individual Catholics from belonging to either group, and parishes would still be encouraged to work with those and other groups on specific projects consistent with Catholic social teaching, Ricken said.

In addition, Gabriel noted the spread of Islamic radicalism, and the sheik’s threat the world eventually will succumb to Shariah, is fueled by the Muslim Brotherhood, as part of a master plan.
Piven and her late husband, Columbia social-work professor Richard Cloward, are best known for having outlined, in 1966, the so-called Cloward-Piven Strategy – a tactic which seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading government bureaucracies with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into "a profound financial and political crisis" that would unleash "powerful forces … for major economic reform at the national level."
In 1966 Piven was a panel member at a Socialist Scholars Conference in New York. There, she and her husband presented a paper proposing that the poor should engage in "irregular and disruptive tactics" designed to overburden city and state governments with demands for welfare money – the ultimate objective being to force those governments to turn to the federal government for assistance. Such “disruption of the system,” said Piven, would result in a situation where:
“Welfare rolls will begin to go up; welfare payments will begin to go up – the impact will be very, very sharp. The mounting welfare budget will increase taxes, force cities to turn to the federal government. We have to help people to make claims; for this they will organize and act."
Beginning in 1967, Piven served as an advisor to the newly formed National Welfare Rights Organization.
On a strategy call organized by billionaire liberal George Soros, Planned Parenthood asked its allies to try and deflect some of the negative attention away from the abortion industry by ramping up their attacks of Lila Rose. Now that Planned Parenthood is vulnerable, liberals are circling the wagons, understanding that any more slip-ups could mean the end of their federal gravy train. This week, 27 liberal groups came out swinging in the press--led by Soros's Media Matters, which quickly organized a letter of support for Planned Parenthood's new outreach to pimps. "Right-wing groups are once again attempting to destroy an organization dedicated to providing crucial primary care services to Americans that need them most..."

Officials of the China National Machinery Industry Corporation have suggested developing a technology zone occupying 10,000 to 30,000 acres south of the Boise airport for industry, retail centers and homes.
A key argument of Corsi's book, "America for Sale: Fighting the New World Order, Surviving a Global Depression, and Preserving USA Sovereignty," is that China will not long continue to subsidize the Obama administration's trillion-dollar annual federal budget deficits without demanding U.S. assets in return.

Chinese President Hu Jintao, the guest of honor at the dinner, surely recognized the melody. The song has been a favorite anti-American propaganda tool for decades. Lang apparently knew exactly what he was playing.
Todd Spencer, executive vice president of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, explained what this means: "U.S. truckers would be forced to forfeit their own economic opportunities while companies and drivers from Mexico, free from equivalent regulatory burdens, take over their traffic lanes." We wonder if Mexico has any regulatory standards at all.
Mexican trucks are known to be overweight and lacking in safety regulations we consider essential, such as anti-lock brakes. Mexico doesn't have national databases that track drivers' records, background checks, drug usage, and arrests, and it's known to be easy to get a commercial driver's license with a bribe.
"I have a DREAM," Phillips responded. "That is, no more United Methodist Church." He recalled having left Methodism as a teenager because the denomination is "little more than the first Church of Karl Marx" and the "'religious arm' of socialism."
Phillips notes, not inaccurately, that the Methodist denomination, officially, is "pro-illegal immigration" and "in the bag for socialist health care," opposed U.S. force after 9/11, is big on Global Warming, and is anti-Israel.

Gosnell and his associates are charged with eight counts of murder for the deaths of seven babies and one adult woman. According to Williams, "A doctor who with scissors cuts into the necks, severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies who would survive with proper medical attention commits murder under the law." He went on to add, "My comprehension of the English language can't adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr. Gosnell."

With this goal in mind, religious leaders and many political powerbrokers alike, are scrambling to support efforts aimed at uniting the world's religions. For the month of February alone, at least five major interfaith events are being planned. Four of the five will target Americans, while the fifth event will have a global audience. Here's a summary.....
Two of the four candidates have met the arcane qualifications for public funding. One who did not, liberal bureaucrat Marla Stephens of the state Public Defender’s office, spins her decision not to take the tax money this way: “we want to have the resources we need to get our message out to the whole state. This is a campaign to bring justice to all of us, rich people and poor people and everyone in-between."
......Three other freshmen governors plan to make that clear right off the bat. Governors John Kasich (R-Ohio) and Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) have announced that their states are joining Florida's massive lawsuit against ObamaCare. Oklahoma's Governor, Mary Fallin (R), said the Sooners will file their own case--bringing the grand total of states now suing the law to 25, or half of the entire country. Elsewhere, former Governor Tim Pawlenty is fighting another law--Congress's repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." During an interview earlier this week with our friends at American Family Association, he refused to back down from a position that three of the four military service chiefs share, which is that allowing open homosexuality in our ranks will devastate national security. "I have been a public and repeat supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'" he said. "There's a lot of reasons for that, but if you look at how the combat commanders and the combat unions feel about it, the results of those kinds of surveys were different than the ones that were mostly reported in the newspaper, and that is something I think we need to pay attention to. But I have been a public supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and I would support reinstating it as well." Those are the kind of leaders we need in Washington--people who aren't afraid to stand with voters and reflect who we really are as a nation.

1. America is, and has for decades been, engulfed in the flames of a Culture War;
2. The Constitution has long been a white-hot center of this War and we therefore must Revive the Constitution!;
3. The Courts continue to be the major "weapon of choice" of the forces fighting against the Constitution and the culture in the Culture War.
As a part of their anti-Constitution, anti-America campaign, some of these enemies try to deny that there even is such a thing as a "Culture War." But Judge and jurist Robert Bork decisively eliminates this argument: "Despite the denials by some that any such conflict exists, the culture war is an obtrusive fact." As Roger Kimball observed in 2000, "[a war within a culture] results first of all in a metamorphosis in values and the other conduct of life." And, continues Bork, "Courts inevitably assume the role of moral teachers."
