Blog Comments

Until now, I've allowed people to comment anonymously on this blog. Unfortunately I will no longer allow anonymous comments as a result of one or more ignorant commenters. As I've always said, I welcome debate and differing views, however I draw the line at flat out nastiness and ugliness.

I wish I didn't have to do this, but as sometimes happens, one or two can ruin things for everyone.

Judge Dennis Barry - Suicide

Well my friends, the rumors floating around are true.
Tom Terry, Racine County Medical Examiner, said the apparent cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, and that so far, authorities have "no reason to believe it was not a suicide."

Terry said Barry's wife reported him missing about 6:30 a.m., and that police on patrol noticed a car in Lincoln Park around 9:00 a.m., and that Barry's body was found nearby, partially in the water.
It's sad to think that a man so admired by so many felt that this was the only way out.

I sincerely hope that Judge Barry finds the peace he clearly couldn't find here.

Breaking: No Foul Play Suspected in the Death of Judge Dennis Barry

In an update...
In a short news release, the Racine Police Department said foul play is not suspected at this time. Police said they responded to a missing-person report at about 7 a.m., responded to Lincoln Park and found the body at about 8:45 a.m.

Police said no more information will be released at this time.
Again - prayers going out to Judge Barry's family and loved ones. He was one of the good guys.

BREAKING NEWS: Judge Dennis Barry Found Dead

I can't believe this!!!
RACINE - Racine County Circuit Judge Dennis Barry has been found dead in Lincoln Park just north of Spring Street.

Barry was the deputy chief district Judge for our judicial district. He was reportedly found dead in his vehicle.

Racine County Circuit Judge Judge Allan "Pat" Torhorst says he was notified by county officials at 9:30 a.m. today.

"I was notified as soon as they could by the county executive and the sheriff," Torhorst said.

Torhorst called the apparent death "a real loss to not only the community but the county."

There are 10 judges in Racine County Circuit Court, and every two years the rotate among assignments. Barry's most recent assignment was to civil court.

Racine County Executive Jim Ladwig said he learned of Barry's death at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday but declined to provide more details.
There are rumors floating around the courthouse regarding his cause and manner of death, but I will NOT repeat rumors until they are confirmed. Suffice it to say I am SHOCKED! Prayers to family and friends.

Normalizing Pedophilia???

Just when I thought that NOTHING could surprise/disgust me, we have this...
If a small group of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals have their way at a conference this week, pedophiles themselves could play a role in removing pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association’s bible of mental illnesses — the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), set to undergo a significant revision by 2013. Critics warn that their success could lead to the decriminalization of pedophilia.
B4U-ACT has been active attacking the APA’s definition of pedophilia in the run up to the conference, denouncing its description of “minor-attracted persons” as “inaccurate” and “misleading” because the current DSM links pedophilia with criminality.
Hmmm - could that be because it IS CRIMINAL????
Child advocate Dr. Judith Reisman, a visiting professor at Liberty University’s School of Law, said the conference is part of a strategy to condition people into accepting pedophiles.

“The first thing they do is to get the public to divest from thinking of what the offender does criminally, to thinking of the offender’s emotional state, to think of him as thinking of his emotional state, [and] to empathize and sympathize,” Reisman said. “You don’t change the nation in one fell swoop; you have to change it by conditioning. The aim is to get them [pedophiles] out of prison.”
I'll say it again - IT IS CRIMINAL. Their emotional state? Who gives a good Goddamn about their emotional state - what about the children they're molesting - any thoughts about THEIR emotional state???
What purpose does calling someone a ‘pervert’ or ‘predator’ serve anyway, other than to express contempt and hatred?” Kramer wrote in a March 14, 2009 blog entry on the website ReformSexOffenderLaws.org. “How is this productive? It certainly doesn’t protect children. I would urge all SO [sex offender] activists to listen to their own message: Stop buying into and promoting false stereotypes. Stop demonizing a whole class of people, and start learning the facts.”
Okay - note to Kramer - we express contempt and hatred because these perverts are contemptable and hated.

There is just SO much wrong with this. How is it "normal" for an adult to lust after a child? How can we decriminalize pedophilia when the children who are the potential victims are in no way, shape or form able to understand, let alone consent, to what these animals want.

I have one question for all these so-called experts. Would YOU leave these pieces of male bovine excrement alone with YOUR children? Would that "relationship" be fine and dandy with you? If so, you belong in prison. If not, you're a hypocrite.

Heartfelt prayers going out to all those affected by the tragedy in Indiana. The pictures and video are horrific.
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana State Police say a fifth person has died after a stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair Saturday, sending steel scaffolding into the terrified crowd below among fans awaiting a performance by the country band Sugarland.

Indiana State Police 1st Sgt David Bursten said Sunday that four people died when the collapse happened and the fifth person died overnight at a hospital.
The onlookers were heroic in their efforts to help those in need. I pray for strength and healing for the doctors, the victims and their loved ones.

Unemployment Benefits Create Jobs

Isn't this awesome news!?
"I understand why extending unemployment insurance provides relief to people who need it, but how does that create jobs," Wall Street Journal's Laura Meckler asked Jay Carney at Wednesday's WH briefing.

Carney responded: "Oh, uh, it is by, uh, I would expect a reporter from the Wall Street Journal would know this as part of the entrance exam."

"There are few other ways that can directly put money into the economy than applying unemployment insurance," Carney said.

Carney answers the question: "It is one of the most direct ways to infuse money directly into the economy because people who are unemployed and obviously aren't running a paycheck are going to spend the money that they get. They're not going to save it, they're going to spend it. And with unemployment insurance, that way, the money goes directly back into the economy, dollar for dollar virtually."

"Every place that, that money is spent has added business and that creates growth and income for businesses that leads them to decisions about jobs, more hiring. So, there are few other ways that can directly put money into the economy than applying unemployment insurance, Carney said.
Are you EFFING kidding me? This dunce makes it sound like everyone who is collecting an unemployment check (and I myself know far too many people in this situation) are out hootin' & hollerin' and having a good ol' time with that money.

Get serious!!! MOST people on unemployment have a home (or did), families, bills to pay. Their unemployment check is a fraction
of what they were making while employed. I'd venture to guess that most of the people collecting unemployment are trying to figure out which bills to pay this month and which they can put off until next month. I know folks who are trying to figure out how they're going to pay their mortgage and whether or not they can cut down on certain insurance coverage. Does this jackass REALLY believe that the money they receive is creating jobs?

Ya know - this sounds curiously like something Nancy Pelosi said about a year ago. Tell me again how many jobs have been created?

Wisconsin Has Spoken

Note to the “other” side:

In the months leading up to the 2010 elections, it became very apparent that Wisconsinites were not happy with the status quo. We were disgusted with the current administration. We were tired of taxing, spending, raiding funds, the unions playing puppet master to Doyle’s puppet. We no longer wanted to be a state which was known as a business owner's nightmare and a trial lawyer’s dream. In essence, we were looking for (to borrow a phrase) change we could believe in.

I assumed, foolishly perhaps, that by November 3, 2010, the message was sent loud and clear. Not only did a virtual unknown beat 3 term senator Russ Feingold, but Republicans took the house, senate and Governor's mansion. It couldn't be much clearer than that, could it?

Since that time, we the people have had to deal with all manner of temper tantrums from the left. They simply DO NOT know how to lose gracefully. We've had to deal with special interest groups sending thousands of people to trash our capitol. Then there were the Senate Democrats who, in a gross dereliction of duty, ran away to another state in order to avoid voting on a bill to which they were opposed. Not to mention lawsuits and recall elections. And during all that, the current administration managed to do its job, and quite well I might add.

In an historic recall campaign, tens of MILLIONS of dollars flooded into Wisconsin from special interest groups to support the democratic candidates. The ads were played ad nauseum, yet not one ad had any substance. They could no longer play the collective bargaining card, as story after story will demonstrate how that is WORKING for school districts and municipalities. Quite frankly, the ads on both sides of the aisle got incredibly annoying.

Well folks, you tried, and you lost. The Republicans retained control of the senate. Y'all gave it your best shot, but it's OVER. FINISHED. Nothing to see here - move along.

So please. I'm begging you. The people have spoken time and time again. We are quite pleased with the current administration. ENOUGH with the lawsuits. Enough with the "recall Walker" garbage. If you care even the tiniest bit about democracy, the electoral process, and a government that is supposed to be of the people, by the people and FOR the people, LEAVE IT ALONE.

Wisconsin has spoken. Please hear her message.

Fair Share?

As most of us are aware, as the stock market tanked, the President made yet another appearance on TV which was supposed to put our mind at ease. Essentially, we're supposed to forget that for the first time in history, our country's credit rating was downgraded. And don't worry your little head about the fact that the Dow closed down 634 points. It's okay - the Prez has our back!! Now doesn't that make you feel better?

One thing Obama said yesterday really stuck with me...
“Our challenge is the need to tackle our deficits over the long term. Last week, we agreed to [across-the-board cuts to domestic and defense spending.] There’s not much further we can cut in either of those categories. We need to couple those spending cuts with two additional steps — tax reform that will ask those who can afford it to pay their fair share and modest adjustments to health programs like Medicare." (Emphasis added)

I'd like to ask Mr. Obama a few questions - who, pray tell, will decide "who can afford it"? This wonderful super committee? And on what criteria will "they" decide who can and cannot afford it? What about the 47% of Americans who pay no income taxes? Can't they afford their fair share?

Secondly, since when is a tax voluntary? Seems to me that if we don't pay our taxes, we can get into some pretty serious trouble. Mr. President, are you really going to "ask", or are you going to demand?

Why don't you say what you really mean sir. You're not going to "ask those who can afford it to pay their fair share"...you're going to demand that the people YOU deem "rich" pay more in taxes.

By the way, in case you haven't noticed, it's policies, or even talk of policies, like this that are keeping the unemployment up and the job creation down. Are you not seeing the pattern?

A Flagrant Act of Patriotism

Head on over to Patrick's place to read the story behind this...
Thanks for putting this out there Patrick!

Thank You Charlie Sykes

As many of you know by now, Charlie Sykes let it slip that Milwaukee's own James T. Harris is leaving the great state of Wisconsin and heading to Tucson, Arizona. What y'all don't know is that he inadvertently screwed up several months of planning.

See, back when there were just whispers of this happening, James contacted me and said if this goes down, I'd get the first interview. He's kept me abreast of the goings on since that time. Now obviously, we didn't want to conduct an interview before the deal was done. Once it was, we set a date to sit down together next week. The plan was for me to put the interview up when JAMES announced the move.

Now JTH, bless his heart, called me within minutes of that airing. The Beautiful Man told me he was going out of town, but in order to keep his promise he'd give me an interview via phone tonight if need be.

I gotta tell you, that made my day. For someone to honor their word like that is refreshing. For someone I consider a friend to prove that he is the man I thought is rewarding.

So James - here's the deal. If you want to wait until next week when we can sit down, no problem. And for the ins and outs of The Beautiful Man's move, the new show and other dirt - stay tuned for James T. - RAW.
