TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Innovative approach to WI voter ID law

"APPLETON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin officials are working to better serve the rapidly growing Hispanic community in the state, with a little help from the Mexican Consulate in Chicago.
A mobile version of the Chicago-based office issued passports and consular identification cards to hundreds of Mexican nationals at an Appleton church last week, Post-Crescent Media reported. About 800 people took advantage of the services at First English Lutheran Church from last Wednesday to Saturday, according to Alfredo Gomez Sepulveda, a coordinator of the consulate’s mobile program.
About once a month, the mobile office visits a Wisconsin city to renew Mexican passports and consular identification cards, saving thousands of people from having to take a trip to Chicago. The consulate has served more than 9,900 Mexican nationals so far in 2014 by offering services in Appleton, Beloit, Green Bay, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Racine and Waukesha, according to Sepulveda.
“It’s more than a three-hour trip to Chicago and the passport is the primary form of ID. So it’s a service that the Chicago consulate provides … to attend to Mexican nationals over here,” Sepulveda said."

What changed?

After several years of expecting to be called racist when criticizing the policies of our beloved first African American President something has changed. Now people are getting disillusioned that the image the media creating did not match reality but there is more. There is a crack in the armor or something.  It used to be people with liberal values were like union reps for the Black Criminals Union.  When a black person was accused of a crime the union reps were quick to take the side of the poor young black man.  He would not be a criminal if he had a well-paying job. It was his environment and on and on.  Say "personal responsibility" and you are a racist.  So why now do the good people with liberal values want to ban someone for life in their chosen occupation? and fire the people who run the companies who would hire the young black men?  And when a DA decides to put a first time offender into a diversion program like we used to hear about for the other black criminals why isn't that enough?  After being banned from making a living the offenders are sure to go back to a life of crime.  It is all sort of interesting but that's football.

A fall morning on Garbin Moraine

Remember this blog is about gullibility so it is up to you to figure out if the photos are true.

We are hoping the frost holds off long enough so this is all yellow but it is iffy.

Immigration rant of the day

The politicians tell us we live in a nation built by immigrants. The liberal brand of politician also likes to tell us how unfair the nation built by immigrants is.

So are immigrants all wonderful people and we should let lots more of them in?

Some of the earliest immigrants in the country were the slave owners wonderful people that they were.

Then there were the slaves who were minding their own business back in their homelands until they were kidnapped and brought to the US  and their culture destroyed and a new slave culture based on violence created.  Fortunately many of the former slaves were able to overcome their pasts and adopt to the surroundings they ended up in and are good citizens but some aren't and our tax dollars pay for that.

Finally, their are the immigrants who fought with the native people here first, won and took their land and put them on reservations and also destroyed their cultures. Nice work immigrants.

This is rant is something to remember the next time someone tells you about how wonderful immigration is. It depends.
