For Those Who Find Climate Hoax Theory Too Complicated:

February 29, 2012




February 21, 2012

I'm just getting started, 45 is a lot.

It is not real encouraging that I want something that Pandora does, and it tops the list.

I also want something that will play a given song when I want to hear it, which Pandora does not.

For right now I just want something to play ambiance whilst I read so I thought I'd share the list in hopes of having help finding the good ones.

Let me know if you find a good one, and why it's good @

Call put out by Madison for the Penokees.

February 16, 2012

Show up for me & my busted transmission

From: Carl Sack – Call put out by Madison for the Penokees.

Sen. Scott Fitzgerald didn't like even the modest changes to AB 426, the disastrous iron mining bill now before the legislature, made by the committee he himself created, so today he unilaterally dissolved the committee and sent the bill to Joint Finance, where it will almost certainly get forwarded to the Senate floor. He sent a message loud and clear to everyone who cares about our state's environment and people: no democracy for you.

On Friday, we're going to send a message to Fitzgerald and the rest of the Senate: It's not about partisan politics. It's about the water.

The Joint Finance Committee will hold a public hearing on AB 426 on Friday at 10 AM in Capitol room 412 East. The previously scheduled Platteville hearing has been cancelled. We are asking everyone who can come to meet in the Capitol Rotunda at 9:30 AM. Please bring a jar of water. This is not a rally, and it's nothing illegal or dangerous. You'll find out more when you get there. Whether or not you can make it in the morning, come to the Rotunda again at 1:00 PM for a different action.

Again, that's:
-9:30 AM in the Rotunda
-1:00 PM in the Rotunda
-Bring a jar of water
That's it. See you Friday.

Barr at 6% in pres. poll, behind Romney by only 5% among 18-29 year old voters (Public Policy Polling / Green Party Watch)

Roseanne Barr at 6% in national presidential poll, behind Romney by only 5% among 18 to 29 year old voters

Third Party Watch, February 14, 2012

Roseanne Barr’s presidential bid has penetrated the veil of media silence so deeply that North Carolina based national polling firm Public Policy Polling has included her in a head to head to head comparison with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama (

Obama wins with 47%, while Romney draws 42% and Barr stands at 6%, with 5% undecided. In a press release issued today, PPP included the following question and answers:

If the candidates for President this year were Democrat Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney, and Green Party candidate Roseanne Barr, who would you vote for?

Barack Obama  47%
Mitt Romney  42%
Roseanne Barr  6%
Undecided  5%

Under current election finance laws, that result would bring the Green Party and it’s presidential nominee millions in funding in the following election cycle, and access to a number of state ballot lines may be secured as well.

Further details of the poll results, are below the fold.

The results also show that Barr picks up a higher percentage at this point amongst men than women, winning 8% of men overall and 5% of women. It further shows that her draw is approximately equal across membership in the two corporate party’s supporters, with 6% or Democratic Party voters choosing Barr over Obama, and 5% of Republicans choosing Barr over Romney.

Barr’s favorability ratings are highest amongst Black, Hispanic and “Other” voters. That support translates into higher support, especially in the Hispanic voting population. Barr garners 7% of those voters, and even reaches into double digits, with 11% of the “other” vote, those who self-identify as something other than Black, White or Hispanic.

Perhaps the most important statistic is to be found deeper into the press release data, with the age break down. The survey showed that 19% of voters between 18 and 29 years of age would vote for Barr, while only 24% would choose Romney.

UnChili-Cajun Powder or Monte’s Chili Powder Base; Vers. 1.0.02 Beta Release

February 13, 2012

I use various types of chili peppers steeped in various types of vinegar to apply heat, some sourness, and/or liquid smoke, as needed.
I also love to use chipotle adobo. So my 'chili powder' has no chilies in it. 
If you are not much inclined to use fresh garlic when you cook, you may want to add more garlic powder.

All ingredients are finely ground dry powders.

1 Part Each: Cinnamon, Turmeric, Gumbo File, Celery Seed, Thyme, Greek Oregano, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Szechuan Pepper

3 Parts Each: Paprika, Fennel Seed, Garlic

4 Parts: Mexican Oregano

6 Parts: Cumin Seed

8 Parts: Coriander Seed

If only the coriander, cinnamon, celery, fennel, or cumin, is significantly more fresh than the others, use less. 
Using more of a significantly more stale ingredient is unlikely to help much.

Future editions may contain: Powders of Onion, Mushroom, Chipotle, Mustard, or Tomato.

Roseanne Brings a Wide Range of Media Attention to GPUS Presidential Race

February 4, 2012

This is a sample of the attention she has received in the last couple days.

More than once she's said she expects Jill Stein to win.
She has been saying she is serious about running this year for longer than
any other but the perennial independents like Bozo et all.

Although Kent did kind of always say he would run too.

We have two candidates with a very early start,
two candidates who are women,
at least one is one of the best speakers I've ever seen.

"Roseanne Barr: Is she serious about Green Party presidential bid? The announcement by Roseanne Barr has given the Green Party the flash of media spotlight it has been lacking as the GOP candidates slog through their primaries."
Christian Science Monitor, Feb. 3, 2012
|| The bid certainly has given the Green Party the flash of media spotlight it has been lacking as the GOP candidates slog through their primaries. "We may be laughing now," says Republican strategist David Johnson, who worked on Bob Dole's 1988 presidential campaign, "but even as this announcement comes out, people are clicking on the Green Party website to figure out if it's for real and to find out more." ||

"I Read the News Today, Oh Boy….."
By Arlen Grossman,, Feb. 3, 2012
|| Roseanne Barr is running for president of the United States as a Green Party candidate. Funny thing is, she has a better platform and ideas than any major party candidate running for the job, including Barack Obama and the Democrats. ||

"I'm running for President, declares sitcom star Roseanne"
The Independent, Feb. 4, 2012
|| At the [Green P]arty's convention in July she will be vying for the nomination with Jill Stein, a long-time activist, who easily wins internal popularity polls. That she might not prevail at the convention has apparently occurred to the actress, whose show Roseanne was one of the most watched in the US from 1988 to 1997. "I run in support of the Green Party and probably of Jill Stein – hopefully I can be of service by speaking on media about a viable choice 4 voters," she said on Twitter. Even if Ms Barr is a non-starter, the Green Party might benefit from her celebrity wattage. ||
