The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

All Aboard... Maybe Not KRM

Cudahy, KRM, Metra, Taxes, Wisconsin

The Mayor is still banking on the KRM, probably at the insistence of VandeWalle and Associates.  Pigs flying have a better chance of happening, before KRM.  His view of Utopia for Cudahy does not include Wal-Mart.

 

McCue, Smith, Pavlic and like types, have no intentions of having their name on the Wal-Mart.  That is it period!

The Real Mistake We Made In Iraq

History, Military, soldiers, World, Iraq

History will show that we won the war, but lost control in Iraq.  When President Bush declared that we had won in Iraq, he was not lying.  We won the military war!  It was the ensuing civil unrest that we lost in the public eye.  Iraq became a police state and our troops have not been equipped to deal with this.  The problem with Iraq is Iraq.  This country has been at war with itself and its neighbors for over a thousand years.  The Shiites and Sunnis have thus far been unable to put their ancient hatreds aside in order to work together to create a rule-of-law constitutional democracy.  We would not and could not just swoop in and fix this state of affairs.

The United States, under the direction of President Bush, vowed that we would help rebuild this war torn nation.  I am a Republican and support President Bush, but we did not learn from history.  Rather than of the U.S. taxpayers footing the bill, we need a ???Marshall Plan??? like the one used after World War II.  Here is a case where history did not repeat.  Too bad we did not learn from our history.

Internet Child Predator Stereotype Changing Study Shows

Crime, Culture, Health, Internet, Kids, Police, Safety, Talk Back

The typical online child sex predator is not a person posing on a social-networking site as a teenager, claims a new study, but rather an adult who identifies him- or herself as such and plainly states a desire for a sexual encounter with a minor.

Their victims tend to be youths who believe they are in love with their suitors rather than teens duped into thinking the predator is another teen, according to a study by the Crimes Against Children Research Center in New Hampshire.

To Copy or Not To Copy

Culture, Education, Life

Plagiarism – Most people do it every day without even knowing about it.  You hear something on the news or in talking and now you accept it and state it.

 

One of my writing instructors told me that all words and thoughts get plagiarized.  While having a discussion with one of my friends we talked about Copernicus and his “The Revolutions” on how he was not the one who discovered it first.  Yet he gets the credit.

Updated 7:19pm - Thank You for Voting Against Wal-Mart Mayor McCue!

Cudahy, Economy, Leadership, Master Plan, Milwaukee Wave, retail, Wal-Mart, Wave

Directions before reading - Please when you see the word Wal-Mart you may substitute any of these words – nasty, unlikable, unpleasant, grubby, sleazy, grotty, or Unsavory if you are a Wal-Mart hater.  That will make reading my post easier on your eyes.  I wish I could sugar coat it more for you like you are use to, but reality is harsh and cold sometimes.

Wave may look to Oak Creek for training academy

The Milwaukee Wave and Continental Properties Co. Inc. may be looking to Oak Creek as the site for a soccer training academy and Wal-Mart Supercenter.  The Cudahy Plan Commission rejected the Wave and Continental's proposal May 5 to build a 60,000-square-foot indoor soccer facility at the abandoned 26-acre Iceport site that also would have included a Wal-Mart Supercenter, a hotel and other retail stores.  The proposal to build the project in the Cudahy tax incremental financing district was defeated by a vote of 4-3.  "We were stunned, but there's plenty of land available in Oak Creek in tax incremental financing districts," said Mike Lafferty, president of the Wave.  Lafferty declined to reveal specific sites in Oak Creek.

More Childish Actions

Crime, Cudahy, Law, Mayor, Milwaukee Wave, Police, Recall, retail, Safety, Wal-Mart, Wave

Here is how some Cudahy people react to the Recall of Mayor McCue and/or Support of Wal-Mart/Wave.

 

Sue’s yard was vandalized last night (5-28-08).  In the front yard, doughnuts were thrown all over the place.  She called the police it took them 45 minutes to get there and the officer said he was sorry twice for the delay and for the vandalized action.  He shook his head and said “How childish.”  So a report has been done with the police.

K9 Unit Thanks!

Crime, Cudahy, K9, Police, Safety, Thank Officials

I would like to thank Alderman Joe Mikolajczak, Police Sergeant Chris Blunt, and Police Chief Thomas Poellot for all the hard work and time they put into making this K9 Unit a possibility in Cudahy. 

 

I am sure the scumbags do not thank you, but the rest of the citizens of Cudahy and I do.  As Alderman Joe Mikolajczak likes to say, "What good are quality developments and a great park system if people are afraid to go to them"?  A K9 Unit is a tool in reducing crime in Cudahy to make those who live and work here safe.

Is this really what Cudahy is about?

I have been called a whale, fat, fatty, big, balloon, round and big ball by people in email or the public forum for my support of the Wal-Mart/Recall.  Did it make you feel better to call me names?  Does it make you look better in the eyes of whom you are looking at to impress?  Such a big person you are with name-calling. 

 

Do I have a weight problem?  Yes.  I suffer from a metabolic disorder.  It doesn’t matter what I eat for my diet, I don’t break down the foods correctly.  I have a rare genetic form that affects my thyroid.  That’s funny isn’t it?
