Ron Kind Supports Incompetence

It is such an embarrassment for Western Wisconsin when Congressman Ron Kind goes on the record supporting the continued incompetence that the White House is exhibiting on a daily basis.

Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Egypt have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.

Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Syria have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.

Never mind that Obama's foreign policy blunders in Ukraine have weakened the United States. Kind supports Obama.

After so many years of Obama's foreign policy blunders weakening the United States around the globe, is it any wonder that a real world leader like Putin would take advantage of the situation and pursue his conquest of Eastern Europe?

Let’s Get Educated

Karen Schroeder a teacher with 36 years of classroom experience will be speaking on the values of and problems inherent with “Common Core” (CC), next Monday afternoon at Logan Middle School starting at 3:30. There is no charge for this presentation and it is important for parents and taxpayers young and old to learn what this program is all about.

Contrary to what some are saying, it is a federal program that provides few or no options for parents and teachers in the classroom. This is against our Constitution as the Feds are not supposed to direct curriculum as that is to be left to the states. With this program a set of materials is provided for the teachers by unelected Washington bureaucrats, which must be obeyed as to what is to be taught, when it is to be taught, and how often tests are to be administered, often daily.

"Members of Congress need to start listening to the people..."

Ken Van Doren recently said, "Members of Congress need to start listening to the people..." People I chat with agree that there is too much corruption in Washington. This is because we keep electing the same people even after they stop listening to the people. Politicians all start off with good intentions and are quickly corrupted by Washington. Party bosses pressure them into voting for bad legislation in return for campaign fundraisers. K Street lobbyists bribe them into supporting amendments to legislation disguised to help people but only benefit a few. The list of corruption goes on and on.

Ten years ago I started to observe this from Ron Kind. It is disappointing to watch his moral decay as he votes against the will of the people including the Wall Street Bailouts and Obamacare. In return for betraying us he was provided with special access to fundraisers with Hollywood and Washington elites. Just look at his recent campaign funding reports.
