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.

It seems like the news story TWW has been hearing lately dropped the 'unarmed' part of the story

Perhaps this explanation is why but TWW doubts it. "Let them who have ears hear" but they don't really want to listen :) There is value in exploiting tragedies or confirming one's own beliefs regardless of the 'facts'. 

"FERGUSON PART V: WHY OFFICER WILSON WAS JUSTIFIED IN SHOOTING AN “UNARMED” MAN

Friday, November 28th, 2014
Much of America, including CNN’s Attorney Sunny Hostin, can’t seem to grasp how Officer Darren Wilson could have been justified in shooting an ostensibly unarmed man.  If Ms. Hostin got through law school without learning the definition of “disparity of force,” well, she wouldn’t be the first to do so.
DISPARITY OF FORCE is the legal principle which recognizes that even without a per se weapon, a violent attacker may have such a physical advantage over the intended victim that if the assault is allowed to continue, the totality of the circumstances indicate that the victim is likely to be killed or crippled. This authorizes the victim to use an actual deadly weapon in self-defense. That situation would exist if the attacker was significantly larger and/or stronger than the victim.  It would exist if the attacker had complete freedom of movement and leverage, and the victim did not, a situation known as “position of advantage.” Another element that could create disparity of force would be that the victim was already handicapped or injured, even in the course of the instant assault, impairing the victim’s ability to fight back, escape, or evade or block continuing blows.  ALL OF THESE WERE PRESENT WHEN THE 292-POUND MICHAEL BROWN WAS SMASHING OFFICER WILSON IN THE HEAD WHILE WILSON HAD VERY LIMITED RANGE OF MOVEMENT INSIDE THE PATROL CAR."

So why aren't the people in Milwaukee rioting like in Ferguson? They may have a bettter reason to do so given the case.

Two bowl series

The first series is the original TWW working class bowl type made of cheap popple meant for the tourists or people who have to buy gifts for people they do not like that much. 


The new series is chic bowls made of aspen (like in Colorado) for upscale gift giving where money is more important than what the gift recipient gets. 




Who says there is no equal opportunity in Ferguson?

Notice the skin color of the people in the photo. More than half are white.

Should he be punished ? Another woman accuses Bill C of sexual assault

"No one knows, of course, whether the 20-year-old accusation is true. But several witnesses have come forward to say Ms. Broaddrick told them..... One friend also says she saw the grossly swollen upper lip blamed ..."

Is she for real or paranoid?



"So a government-related entity has infiltrated my computer, email, and likely my smartphones, and that included illegally planting classified documents in a possible attempt to lay the groundwork to eventually entrap or frame me . . . or someone who talks to me ? As it begins to sink in, I think of the whistleblowers and sources who have spoken to me over the past two years, often confidentially. By having well-placed sources help me discover this infiltration, did I just dodge a bullet? Did I get them before they got me?"

2nd (?) storm of the century of the year





Trailer awaiting broken snow blower.


Snow blower awaiting trip to emergency room after TWW broke it after only  using it for 1.25 hours.




People at the emergency room said they could weld it to fix it or put a new impeller in but they were back ordered at the factory and not available for who knows how long.

What ever happened to fairness in this country?

"ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl reported that according to WH officials “the president will move forward with an executive order on immigration reform “no matter how big a shellacking Democrats get tonight” during ABC’s Election coverage on Tuesday."



Commentary: Remember when people stood in line, filled out all the proper forms, took classes on what it meant to be American,   learned English and then were sworn in as citizens?  Now all some people have to do is walk across the border and they get in for free it seems. Is it fair?

TWW's election commentary

Thank the heavens America does not have a parliamentary system.
