I found a bottle of Stoli Cranberi on the buffet as I cleaned up for our feast. It was a gift left over from this year's Smoke Day Party. I couldn't find any decent recipes online, so I created this cranberry sauce inspired drink recipe.
One part Stoli Cranberi
Two parts Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry juice
One part fresh orange juice
Splash of Chambord Raspberry liqueur
Combine first three ingredients in highball glass over crushed ice. Top with Chambord and garnish with whole cranberries and sliced orange.

I was actually happy that there wasn't a back-scatter scanner at this terminal, so I didn't want to press my luck by telling him to mind his own business and bugger off.
What kind of training does TSA give to the former QuikTrip clerks that it hires? Apparently HIPAA is another law that is not applicable to TSA.

Headless bucks turning up in northeastern Wisconsin
Oconto - Conservation wardens say an increasing number of headless bucks have been found in northeastern Wisconsin.
State Department of Natural Resources warden Mike Stahl said investigators don't know why at least a half dozen bucks have been found without their heads since the last week of October.
The DNR said four were found in Oconto County's Little Suamico-Abrams area. One was found in the Town of Spruce and another in Marinette County.
Stahl told WLUK-TV that because of various stages of decay, it's not known how all the bucks were killed, but the DNR has been able to determine at least two were shot.

Step Two: Don't install silt fencing around polluted material.
Step Three: Make sure that debris pile is not located more than 150 yards from navigable stream (click picture for large size panorama).
From your friends at the WI DNR.
Runoff from rainstorms and snowmelt picks up pollutants like sediment, oil and grease, nitrogen and phosphorus, and other chemicals and carries them into storm sewers or directly into waterbodies. Preventing contamination of storm water is critically important or polluted runoff will be discharged - untreated - into the waterbodies we use for swimming, fishing, and drinking water.Of course, those rules do not apply to our municipal superiors.

It's bad enough that I have to fly on Labor Day, but the dipshit in chief has decided to mess with my 5:30 flight to Phoenix (home of the free and the brave). Can someone make the asshole stay away from here?
Obama will be at Laborfest, annually the largest gathering of labor unions in the state, on Monday afternoon. His visit will be brief, but his address is expected to be directed toward working families.
Laborfest, at the Maier Festival Grounds, will be open from noon to 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Gates open at 11 a.m. Obama is expected to arrive in Milwaukee about 1:30 p.m.

I was alone with my company's president for several hours this week and it wasn't long before he started tossing out liberal talking points - "That idiot Sarah Palin," "The failed Bush administration," etc. The man is tremendously successful and a brilliant man in his area of expertise, but his understanding of politics is stuck at a very adolescent level. He's a NPR listening, big city, limousine liberal; and certainly gets more reinforcement of his beliefs than he needs from his circle of friends.
I mostly bit my tongue, despite him saying he doesn't hold anyone's political views against them. Yeah, right!
Did I do the right thing or should I have challenged him, revealed my beliefs, and pointed out factual errors (little things like Congress controls expenditures and the Democrats have controlled Congress since 2007)?
A total suck up

Simple Solution: Teach the students to read. Get rid of whatever latest fad they are using (Riting to read?) and try Phonics. Yes, it means the teachers will actually have to teach, the poor overpaid dears, but the student will learn.
Problem: MMSD water rates are too high because of decreasing demand.
Problem: Waukesha is mandated by EPA overreach to stop using their well water.
Simple Solution: MMSD sell water to Waukesha at current (or discounted) rates, thereby increasing their demand and eliminating the need to increase water rates to their current customers.

Now when Kagen is nominated to the Supreme Court, the Obama regime and his Ministry of Propaganda forbid even the slightest inference to Kagen's sexual orientation.
And you had better not ask. Because she'd not going to tell.
Couldn't Kagen at least try to be consistent on this. Since she limited Harvard students' career opportunities because of DADT, shouldn't she take a stand about being appointed to the Supreme Court until this de facto DADT policy is abolished?
Oh the irony. Or is it hypocrisy?

What is the marching in cadence all about? Practicing for Red Square?
Here's a tip, boys. When in the presence of those dangerous teabaggers, do not travel in close formation. This will avoid having one IED take out the entire unit.

[The Congress shall have power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes;The tyrants in Congress have proven that they cannot control themselves and have abused this Constitutional power. They have been facilitated by the Supreme Court. Take this power away from Congress by amending the commerce clause.
[The Congress shall have power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations and with the Indian tribes;This will cause revocation of all laws and legal precedents flowing from the original commerce clause. Yes that means tossing the baby out with the bathwater. But if that baby is important enough, an amendment to the Constitution can be enacted to reinstate those laws.

The following words have been interpreted to not restrain
The powers not delegated to theCould the 10th Amendment somehow be rewritten to limit the power of Congress?
by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. United States
A century ago, these words meant something. If they didn't, the 18th Amendment would not have been necessary.
Under Obama, Pelosi, & Reid, is there any policy that would require a Constitutional Amendment to implement?

For some perspective, the cost of adding a lane of Interstate highway is estimated to be $1.6 million to $3.1 million per lane-mile. There is something like 45 miles of two lane highway on I-94 between Pewaukee and Cottage Grove per a quick Google Maps computation. Based on these estimates, the cost to widen I-94 from two to three lanes in each direction would be between $144 and $279 million dollars.
That is only one-fifth to one-third of the cost of creating Doyle's "high speed" rail line. A rail line that will have minuscule ridership, be expensive to ride, be extremely inconvenient for almost all riders, and take longer to get between Milwaukee and Madison for any conceivable purpose.
Well done Obama. You cannot help but waste money.

The congressional Dems should fire Reid and Pelosi and elect moderate leaders, maybe even Blue Dogs. They've got to wash that far left stink off of themselves.
Related, a great line from Ed Morrissey.
They (the Dems) seem convinced that the only way to rescue themselves from the trap in which they have caught themselves is to chew off the foot that’s still free.
