The race for the 87th Assembly district. 

In the upcoming election in the 87th district there are two candidates, Mary Williams, the Republican incumbent and Democrat, Dana Schultz.  As a rural district dependent on agriculture and tourism the economic situation is at the forefront of the issues in this election. 

Mary Williams has a track record of supporting agriculture, both large and small.  The economic stimulus bill she sponsored for rural areas was line itemed vetoed by Governor Doyle and ended up being used in the suburbs.  Mary voted for the raw milk bill despite dairy industry claims that everyone would drop dead from consuming raw milk, having been raised on raw milk, Mary knew better.  

She co-sponsored the voluntary premises registration bill with the hope to end prosecution of Wisconsin producers; producers who were resistant because of religious or constitutional reasons.  

A future proposal of a legislative committee regarding fraud and abuse of government programs was spurred by fraudulent activity surrounding alleged day care centers in and around Milwaukee where recipients receiving grants had not even cared for children at all, one of which was actually a house of ill repute.   More

Destruction of Largest Wyoming Wild Horse Herd Underway Despite Public Outcry

Wild horse mare dies in costly and unnecessary roundup 

Rock Springs, WY (October 12, 2010)—Amid nationwide protests, today 122 more healthy wild horses were rounded up by helicopter in the Adobe Town/Salt Wells Wild Horse Herd Management Area Complex. The current three-day roundup total is 320, not including one mare who died on the run yesterday. The National Academy of Sciences will begin it’s Congressionally-requested investigation of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) wild horse and burro program in 2011 but it will too late for the Red Desert herds without an immediate moratorium on roundups

This removal is estimated to cost at least $3.5 million in taxpayer dollars and will leave the celebrated Adobe Town/Salt Wells Wild Horse Range—already populated with oil and gas wells—nearly devoid of mustangs. Some 40,000 cattle per year are allocated to graze on the 1.5 million acres Complex as well, leaving little room for wild horses according to BLM’s multiple-use interpretation. The BLM plans to continue their operation for six weeks in order to roundup 1950 horses, removing 1580 of them permanently from the Complex. The majority of horses removed will be shipped to the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City which doubles as a holding facility for thousands of captured mustangs.

Carol Walker, author/photographer of Wild Hoofbeats: America’s Vanishing Wild Horses, has been documenting the mustangs of Wyoming’s Red Desert for seven years. “I am witnessing the end of the wild West here as family after family of wild horses are driven into the trap, the majority of which will never return. These are magnificent animals who deserve to live their lives in freedom with their families. They should not be stockpiled with the more than 40,000 wild horses and burros now in government holding.” More

Mind Control & “Full Spectrum Dominance”

Most of us have heard the military’s term “full spectrum dominance.” We have heard it defined, basically, as “a military concept whereby a joint military structure achieves control over all elements of the battlespace using land, air, maritime and space based assets.” However, those in the military are rarely poetic and are not given to using metaphors, as a rule. They are very blunt, very direct. Given that, could it be the use of the word spectrum is more literal?

Dept. of Defense 
The electromagnetic spectrum “is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation,” according to Wikipedia. I submit that it is this quite literal spectrum the Department of Defense is referring to.

 
The reason I believe this to be the case is because the global dominance of land, air, sea and space isn’t enough for full control of the world, which is, of course, the real objective referred to by the term “full spectrum dominance.” But, that control, in order to be absolute, must also – must especially – include the full control of the electromagnetic spectrum and all that is affected by it.
