Book Club Meeting: “The Crash of 2016: The Plot to Destroy America – and What We Can Do to Stop It”

“The United States is in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression look like child’s play. In THE CRASH OF 2016, Thom Hartmann argues that the facade of our once-great United States will soon disintegrate to reveal the rotting core where corporate and billionaire power and greed have replaced democratic infrastructure and governance. Our once-enlightened political and economic systems have been manipulated to ensure the success of only a fraction of the population at the expense of the rest of us.” [itunes.apple.com]

This book is widely available through iTunes, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. Read the book on your own and join other concerned citizens in discussion and plans for action.

This meeting will be held in a private home and space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot by calling 262-945-2091.

Badgered State Blues (not from here anymore)


This is what happens when your misperceptions are swept away and you suddenly discover that the fellow citizens of your beloved Badger State are either half "Rascals" or don't know one from a hole in the ground.

Shame on Seth & Sony


I say this not in deference to North Korea or the current dictator of their brutal regime Kim Jong-Un, but I hope that Sony Pictures takes an absolute bath on this movie. I will not be seeing The Interview.

I'm aghast! With all the discussions of this movie amongst the pathetic punditry that I seen and heard, there's not been one single talking head that has brought up what should be a central point to this controversy. That being, that it is TOTALLY inappropriate to make a film about killing a real, non-fictional, living human being.

Just imagine the reaction if someone made a movie about killing one of our leaders! President Obama, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, even the war criminal GWB . . . The Dick Cheney.

O.K. probably not The Dick Cheney - Torturer-In-Chief.

They could have used a stand-in character that everyone would have known was a representation of The Dear Bleeder or someone like him, but making it about him literally, crosses the line. This is not about freedom of speech. I'm not making the argument that those involved in making this picture don't have the right to do so. It's just that they are wrong to do so. Disgustingly wrong. And it certainly isn't going to make the world a better and safer place to live. Bad move dudes!

Attention Members!

NOTICE: This is your Democratic Party Membership Chair, Rollin Pizzala. It has come to my attention that we are losing a quite a few renewal memberships through the oversight of members not checking to see if their current credit cards used for membership renewal have expired or changed numbers. For the past two years, as I have screened names for up-to-date membership, I have approached members who thought that they had automatically renewed by credit card, but the transaction did not go through, because either the card had expired or the account number had changed. This can happen to all of us, and it seems to be happening more frequently as banks issue new cards at unexpected times. Please check your credit cards to see that they are up to date, so that your membership does not expire.

Meanwhile, I will try to work with the State so that we can come up with a better system to get a handle on renewals. We need to keep the party strong, and without membership we can not accomplish this.

Thanks for your cooperation with this matter from your Membership Chair!
