Dear Mr. Gou

Dear Mr. Gou,

CEO of Foxconn -

What is the price point at which you can manufacture LCD TV's and still make an acceptable profit?

Those of us who live in this region already know that you have  grossly miscalculated the labor costs - and that Owens Corning - without massive subsidies will not build a local glass manufacturing plant for your company to produce large LCD TV's.

And with the ever increasing cost of Government - and the costs associated with subsidizing your proposed operation - how can workers afford to live and work in the proposed WI Silicon Valley?

All that futuristic artwork and hype is just that - an Artist's rendition.

Your factories in China have - in reality - nets to save Workers from committing suicide.

Jack Ma has already told President Trump - NO!  Alibaba's Jack Ma says it can't create 1 million jobs in U.S. due to Trump's China tariffs

When will you tell WI Governor Scott Walker and MTP President - NO!

What you have done here - and been allowed to get away with - is wrong - and contrary to the long term health of the Human species and Planet Earth.

I "killed" my TV a long time ago - and certainly won't be buying one produced in MTP by Foxconn -

Which totally ignores the question if you can actually manufacture LCD TV's at a profit in MTP.

Instead, 'm betting that:

1. You - Mr. Terry Gou - can't manufacture LCD TV's at a profit - sans massive government subsidizes - in WI - or the USA - PERIOD.

2. Industrial Civilization will spectacularly fail:


The Transient Pulse Theory of Industrial Civilization:

In 1989, I concluded that the life-expectancy of Industrial Civilization is horridly short. This hypothesis was defined in terms of a measurable index, world energy-use per person, and named the "transient-pulse theory of Industrial Civilization." I sketched its maximum point at 1990, followed by a persistent decline (see Note 1). Back then, however, I had no data to support this claim.
The ratio of world annual energy-use to world population gives a robust, testable profile of Industrial Civilization. Over the past six years, I devised a quantitative basis for the theory and gathered several sets of world energy and population data to test it (Note 2). In these pages, the name "Olduvai theory" means the same as "transient-pulse theory," used in previous papers (Note 3).
and that Depletion - on a finite Planet - is a problem....
Depletion is the inevitable consequence of resource extraction. As petroleum depletes it reaches a point where its ability to power the economy begins to decline; as the economy declines our ability to produce petroleum, and its products declines. The objective of this study is to determine when that point will be reached, and how the decline event will evolve.
So - Mr. Gou - can we build a sustainable (future) civilization with LCD TV's?
What if past was future - and we devolved back into Agrarian Society and invoked Contributisism?

It’s high times for soaring marijuana stocks on Wall Street

NEW YORK (AP) — Reefer Madness has gripped Wall Street.
Investors are craving marijuana stocks as Canada prepares to legalize pot next month, leading to giant gains for Canada-based companies listed on U.S. exchanges. Some experts are concerned that the ending will be a buzzkill.
Billions of dollars have poured into the stocks in the last few months, and investors smell green (money, not leaves) in the air as they consider the opportunities these companies might have as the marijuana market in Canada grows, along with the possibility that the U.S. and other countries could follow suit.
The value of one company, British Columbia-based Tilray, has jumped tenfold since its initial public offering just two months ago. The company had $20 million in sales in 2017, but it’s now worth considerably more than Macy’s or Hasbro. With those huge gains have come extreme swings.
Wednesday was a trip for Tilray stock: after closing at $154 the previous day, it opened at $233 a share, soared to $300, and then plunged to $151 before rallying to close at $214. Trading was halted several times because of that volatility.
For some people on Wall Street, it’s bringing back unpleasant memories.
“We just went through this eight months ago with cryptocurrencies,” says investor Ken Mahoney, CEO of New York based Mahoney Asset Management. He said the investors buying these stocks at their current prices are already betting on enormous successes, but even if legal marijuana takes off, some of the companies will fail.

Dear City of Racine Alderpsersons,

A claim to NO - Thing.

Marijuana museum opens in Vegas

LAS VEGAS — A glass bong taller than a giraffe. Huggable faux marijuana buds. A pool full of foam weed nuggets.
Las Vegas’ newest attraction — and Instagram backdrop — is a museum celebrating all things cannabis.
Nobody will be allowed to light up at Cannabition when it opens Thursday because of a Nevada ban on public consumption of marijuana, but visitors can learn about the drug as they snap photos.
It’s a made-for-social-media museum where every exhibit has lights meant to ensure people take selfies worthy of the no-filter hashtag.
The facility — whose founder says has a goal of destigmatizing marijuana use — will likely land among the talking points officials and others use to try to draw gambling-resistant millennials to Sin City.
It will welcome its first visitors almost 15 months after adults in Nevada began buying recreational marijuana legally, with sales far exceeding state projections.

Money TALKS! While the Suckers Walked!

A Better Mount Pleasant sends:

Today the Village of Mount Pleasant Plan Commission approved a new road plan for Prairie View Drive which will replace the current north end of Prairie View Drive, a road that runs west from Highway H into the Foxconn Development Area I. The first portion of the road will be a public street. There will be an intersection at the northwest corner of Prairie View Drive and West Prairie View Drive where current homeowners will be able to turn south and access their properties. The road will also continue west and become a private road that will service Foxconn’s manufacturing campus. East Prairie View Drive will be discontinued. According to Claude Lois, Mount Pleasant’s Project Director, Foxconn will pay for the new road and its contractor will install it pursuant to Village requirements.
Only one property owner in the Prairie View Drive subdivision, Jim and Kim Mahoney, have not reached a settlement to sell their property to the Village of Mount Pleasant. While the Village previously told the Mahoneys and all other property owners in that subdivision that it would acquire their access rights to the new roadway and therefore, acquire their property under eminent domain, it appears the Village has abandoned that plan and will allow the Mahoneys to continue to live in their 19-month-old home.
Kim Mahoney said she just found out yesterday when the Village forwarded to her a copy of the new road plans. She said they have not heard from the Village in almost two months regarding their property. The Village had only made one offer to buy their property back in April which the Mahoneys rejected. They made a counteroffer in the beginning of August to which the Village has never responded. Kim Mahoney is happy that she is not going lose her new home and says she would rather live on the Foxconn campus than settle for a smaller lot or someone else’s home. The Mahoneys now plan to add improvements to their new home including paving the driveway and walkways, and adding a patio but those improvements must first be approved by the Village Board because the area has been designated a “blighted area.”
When asked why she thinks the Village is allowing them to stay, Mahoney said she doesn’t know, but she has been very outspoken, challenging the Village’s authority to deny them access to the roadway and to take their property using eminent domain for purposes of handing it over to another private party. She said since 2006, Wisconsin law prevents the government from doing that to homeowners unless the property is needed for a public use, such as a railroad, a road or utilities. She said the Village has also been unwilling to consider increased costs to rebuild their home on a similar 1-acre lot in a nearby rural subdivision.
The question we now have is would other homeowners have chosen to stay if they had been given the choice? All homeowners were told by the Village of Mount Pleasant that they did not have a choice, that if they did not agree to sell, the Village would take their home using eminent domain and they would be paid less. It turns out, that wasn’t really the case.

In Racine County, a court dispute over access to public records is fought in secrecy

From JSOnline:

The unusual case, now on appeal but also absent from the Court of Appeals web-based index, has only come to light because a maverick Racine Common Council member got tired of what she calls growing secrecy and concentrated power in her local government.
"To me, it’s a huge issue," said Sandy Weidner. "I’m willing to defy the judge's order that it’s sealed."
Advocates for open government are astounded and have never heard of a public records suit being sealed, or any kind of case without some record of who the parties are and why it was under seal.
"Everything I know about this case seems atrocious," said Bill Lueders, president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council.
"These communications should never have been withheld. The trial court judge should never have allowed this matter to be adjudicated in secret. His decision should not have been sealed. The appellate court should not have allowed this secrecy to extend to the appeal."
"These are low-level communications from local residents about local issues, not the  Pentagon Papers," Lueders said.

Our "leaders" are lying pigs.

No Surprise Here!

Dear City of Racine Alderpersons,

It appears that the corrupt Courts and Judges of Racine County are just there to provide cover for the criminal misdeeds of Public Officials and the wealthy – it happens again, and again, and again. Anything goes for those with the right political connections.

Past outrages include:

Racine County Circuit Judge Gerald Ptacek ruling that John Dickert was acting in his official capacity as Mayor while he was campaigning during a radio interview at WRJN. Thus forcing City of Racine taxpayers to pay John Dickert’s S100,000 legal bills? A ruling which any competent Judge or conscious public would know was – at best – LAUGHABLE, and downright contrary to the laws of State of Wisconsin!  Because IF John Dickert was campaigning while Mayor, it would be a criminal act!

Racine County Circuit Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz sentencing convicted child molester Curt Johnson, worth $2.7 billion, to 4 months is the County Jail, and a  $6,000 fine as part of his punishment for two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty to both back in June.He didn't even have to register as a SEX OFFENDER!
Both charges were drastically amended; Johnson was initially charged with repeated sexual assault of a child, which is a felony.
And now the latest outrage, from Racine County Circuit Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz:
...after meeting with lawyers in his chambers (concerning Sandy Weidner’s Open Records lawsuit) , telling others there for the hearing that they had to leave because he was sealing the case.
The judge said recently he sealed the case “because of the nature of the action. It’s one that shouldn’t be open. I made a public policy determination.”
But wasn’t it an open records case? “I’m sorry, I can’t tell you. It’s sealed,” Gasiorkiewicz said.
As for City of Racine Attorney Scott Letteney - it's amazing that he finds for such harassing nonsense since he must also perform his duties as Town of Geneva Municipal Judge. At least City of Racine's part time City Attorney/Town of Geneva Municipal Judge has good connections with the corrupt Courts and Judges of Racine County.
Tim & Cindy
Judge Gasiorkiewicz,

Are you fukking nuts? 

In the past I have documented that the Racine County court system is a corrupt cesspool of scheming and complicit judges, a corrupt district attorney (Michael Nieskes) who engaged in the criminal act of filing a false affidavit into court records and a dirty judge (Gerald Ptacek) who protected the piece of shit Michael Nieskes from being subpoenaed into court to impeach his testimony of his false affidavit.

But - Never in my wildest of dreams would I have expected to see the day where a circuit court case is completely remove from the court dockets to avoid public scrutiny.

To further add insult, a complicit court of Appeals  is also engaged in the egregious conduct  of not docketing the court case. These acts are against the public's right to oversee our courts (however derelict and corrupt they may be).

You judge Gasiorkiewicz have reach another new low - even for the ever corrupt 2nd district circuit court.

How proud 2nd. district circuit court Chief Judge Jason Rossell must be overseeing such contemptible acts upon the public.

I request the assigned court docket case # of your sealed court case involving Sandy Weidner and I want the docket # immediately.

Please see Open Records Request attachment.

Respectfully submitted,
Legal Stranger

Cory & Company make DeGroot & Company look like Pikers.

A Racine County judge said he's only sealed one case in his career. The case he chose to hide from taxpayers and Racine city residents? A petition for access to public records.
The unusual case, now on appeal but also absent from the Court of Appeals web-based index, has only come to light because a maverick Racine Common Council member got tired of what she calls growing secrecy and concentrated power in her local government.
"To me, it’s a huge issue," said Sandy Weidner. "I’m willing to defy the judge's order that it’s sealed."
Advocates for open government are astounded and have never heard of a public records suit being sealed, or any kind of case without some record of who the parties are and why it was under seal.
"Everything I know about this case seems atrocious," said Bill Lueders, president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council.
"These communications should never have been withheld. The trial court judge should never have allowed this matter to be adjudicated in secret. His decision should not have been sealed. The appellate court should not have allowed this secrecy to extend to the appeal."
"These are low-level communications from local residents about local issues, not the  Pentagon Papers," Lueders said.
Patrick Kabat, a First Amendment lawyer in Cleveland who leads a First Amendment clinic at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, said it's unheard of for a judge to seal an entire case without some public record of why.
"This is not a public records issue, it’s a courts access issue," he said, "and state open meetings law doesn’t control that, it can’t be wished away."  
Kabat said his clinic's focus is "reminding courts there are two parties in front of them, but the forgotten third party is the public. And its right is enforceable."

Man accused of biting 3-year-old's face

From The Journal

RACINE — A Racine man is facing charges after allegedly biting a 3-year-old girl in the face and beating her mother.

Timothy H. Monroe, 19, of the 1000 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, is charged with felony counts of physical abuse of a child, intentionally causing bodily harm, and false imprisonment, and misdemeanor battery.


As of Tuesday afternoon, Monroe remained in custody on a $500 cash bond and a $5,000 signature bond, online records show. A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 3 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.

This guy's cash bond is $500.  Once again, Racine demonstrates its antipathy toward children.  Mr. Monroe should be bitten on the face and punched in the eye.  

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, all God's chillun.  Blessings upon you.  You've got great weather for another mass shooting.  But you must hurry up.  A cold front is on the way: 
We've been fortunate that we had few days of real heat.  Not enough rain, but that's true of almost every growing season now.  Climate change can be felt everywhere, but there's not a lot we can do about it.  It's the huge industrial producers, especially overseas, that poison our air and water.  We better start taking care of this planet or the UFOs will,

As Ms. Tender Heart Bear proclaimed in another thread, she is in second place in this week's standings in the Irregular Footbal League.

I'm in fifth place and Mr. OrbsCorbs is in sixth.  Mr. hale-boppremains the man to beat.  Go get him, Ms. Tender Heart Bear.

In professional football, our Green Bat Packers had to settle for a tie with the Minnesota Vikings.  Pretty soon Aaron Rodgers will have a brace attached to every joint on his body.  The $19.8 million dollar man.  I want so badly to believe, but I know that Mr. Rodgers will be further injured.  It's his karma, or kismet.  All those millions have purchased us a porcelain doll.  Watch how easily he breaks.

I remember the old days of Bart Starr and shrugging off an injury.  No prima donnas then.  Those days are long past.  Back then, they played football.  Today, they perform.

My condolences to the family of the Mount Pleasant public works employee who was killed by a car.

And my condolences to the family of Alderman Ray DeHahn.  Not too many are willing to serve like he did.

Indeed, most people don't give a damn about local politics, just so long as their money keeps coming in.  At times I feel that we're a city of idiots ruled over by even bigger idiots.  What does it matter?  Who cares?  Just a few.  Most people are too busy with their own lives to get involved in politics.  The politicians count on that.  Thus they rule the roost.

Junior is back driving again.  I haven't asked SeƱor Zanza about the details, and I don't intend to.  I assume that what they're doing is legal.  If it's not, they'll get busted.  Junior is cursed with the Zoltar curse: an inability to commit crime.  He's gotten around it in the past, but now he seems more mellow and trusting.  He's getting older.

Mr. Trump has been extraordinarily quiet this past week.  Now that most of his key staff members are under investigation, he has quieted down.  Perhaps he knows what's next, what will be revealed.  He might get impeached yet.

That's it.  I love you all and wish for nothing but the best for you.  I love readers of my blog.  We are family.

Enjoy what's left of summer.  We'll still get some warm days even though the nights are cool.  Great sleeping weather. Great weather for a hike or a bicycle ride.  Get out and do something.

Mushroom Clod

All summer long I got my dinky apartment’s windows sprung wide so’s to attract a gentle cooling breeze and soothe my heated brow. And all summer long—morning, noon and night—all I heard was the constant kvetching from a focking uber-flock of winged rats hell-bent on keeping me sleep deprived.
And what do these garbage birds really need to communicate to each other that’s so important—“Hey, I just flew by the corner of Water Street and Juneau and saw some college knob puke his guts out; so beaks off. That vomit is mine, assholes.”
So yesterday, I closed my windows what with the finally weather. I took a stroll around the neighborhood and noticed there was nary a suck-ass seagull to be seen or heard. I rushed back to my dinky apartment for a soothing snooze, the first in months. Mission accomplished.
And I awoke from some stupid dream during which I had shaved half my dome smooth as a baby’s butt and then grew my hair on the other half extra-long so I could comb it over the bald half. I got to tell you, when I start having dreams about fashion, my world is crumbling. I hate fashion. And I hate dreams. For christ sakes, you fall asleep and all of a sudden your brain becomes some kind of focking avant-garde film director high on LSD? Sleep is overrated, what the fock, ain’a?
So I became awake, put on the TV and thought I heard that the History Channel’s going to repeat a show coming up about big-deal historical discoveries and discoverers—probably the usual suspects, you know, your fire, movable type, Tyco Brahe, flight, Albert Einstein, combustion engine, the transistor, Leonardo da focking Vinci—which sounded like a good chance for me to further catch up on my sleep-time and then awaken with restored energy for pissing and moaning.
But hey, I’ll bet you a buck two-eighty one thing they won’t mention on that show is the discovery of the liquor store. I tell you, the guy who came up with that kind of scheme should be in the historical hall of fame. Only a thousand years ago, I don’t know if people even had stores for anything much less one devoted only to good times stored in bottles on shelves that are never empty. I suppose hundreds and hundreds of years ago, if a regular guy had a taste for a little eye opener, he had to go make his own. What a pain in the butt, ain’a? Probably what happened is that breakthroughs in political theory proved that the more time spent making hootch, the less time spent drinking it—an equation that gave rise to wars that could last a hundred years at a crack, I kid you not.
And I’ll bet this show won’t touch on the importance of the discovery of the gentlemen’s periodical and its role in the creation of the modern society we enjoy today. Hard to imagine the hoops you’d have to jump through even 500 years ago just to see a gal buck-naked. Sure, a lot of those old-fart fine-art painters you might’ve heard of in school knew from putting skin on canvas, but during their time in the Middle Ages, most of their paintings were scooped up by some kind of liege lord and locked up for safekeeping in a dank castle, unavailable for the perusal and edification of the common Joe Blow pissant.
HOLD ON! Just read this excerpt from the Stormy Daniels soon-to-be-released book, Full Disclosure. This, from NBC News: Daniels had lingering remorse over the experience for years, writing that any time she'd see Trump on television, she’d think: “I had sex with that, I’d say to myself. Eech.”
So let’s get out of here with a little story: So this little kid just got potty trained. But when he went to the bathroom to go Number One, the kid managed to hit everything but the toilet. So mom had to go clean up every time the kid went to take a leak. After two weeks, she had enough and took him the doctor.
After the exam, the doctor said, “My good woman. The problem for your son is that his, shall we say, ‘unit’ is too small. An old wives’ tale is to give him two slices of toast each morning, and his unit will grow so that he can hold it and aim straight. You may want to try that.”
Next morning the little kid jumped out of bed and ran downstairs to the kitchen. There on the table are 12 slices of toast. “Mom!” the kid says. “The doctor said I only had to eat two slices.” The mother says, “I know. The other ten are for your father.”
Ba-ding! ’cause I’m Art Kumbalek and I “toad” you so.

A Better Mount Pleasant Sends:
 Former Village President Jerry Garski was found not guilty Thursday, September 13, of violating a village ordinance over his home-based business. Wind Point Municipal Judge John Knuteson dismissed the case against Garski, ending a nearly two-year battle with the village that began with multiple complaints filed in 2016 by Trustee Anna Marie Clausen and former Community Development Authority Chair Pat Barlament.
Knuteson ruled that Garski possessed the appropriate permits and licenses approved by village officials in 2011 to operate his business in Mt. Pleasant, validating Garski’s original and consistent assertions that he had not violated village ordinances.
News of the original complaints against Garski were published in November 2016, when four separate complaints about Garski’s properties and businesses were filed within a 24-hour period by Clausen and Barlament.
The complaints against Garski led to additional allegations by Safebuilt, LLC, the independent agency hired by the village to investigate and a State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Review Board investigation filed by the Village of Mt. Pleasant and Safebuilt, LLC.
In November 2017, the Village of Mt. Pleasant cited Garski for operating his business on his property, a violation of his conditional use permit - which could have resulted in a fine of $6,250 - forcing Garski to suspend operation of his business and to retain legal counsel to represent him.
In June 2018, the State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professionals Services Review Board dismissed the complaints against Garski, stated that both Safebuilt and the Village of Mt. Pleasant had failed to provide sufficient evidence of violations.
Following the state’s dismissal, the Village of Mt. Pleasant attempted to offer Garski a deal in which they would dismiss the citation with prejudice, if Garski would agree to pay the village’s legal fees of $1,250. Their offer reserved the village’s right to impose future citations against him if he continued to operate his business.
Garski declined, saying he was not violating village ordinances and possessed the appropriate permits and licenses for his business. He said he would rather go to court.
A few weeks later, the village offered to split the cost of their legal fees with Garski for $650, again with prejudice and the potential for future citations. Garski said no.
Knuteson’s ruling on Thursday represents not just the end of Garski’s effort to defend himself, but also eliminates the waste of taxpayer funds spent by the village by having the following public employees fruitlessly pursue the allegations against him:
- Village of Mt. Pleasant Interim Administrator and Police Chief Tim Zarzecki
- Village Clerk/Treasurer Stephanie Kohlhagen
- Village of Mt. Pleasant Planning Director Sam Schultz
- South Shore Fire Department Chief Bob Stedman
- Mt. Pleasant Village Building Inspector Leonard Hannula
- Mt. Pleasant Clerk’s Office staff
- Mt. Pleasant Police Department staff
- South Shore Fire Department staff
- Mt. Pleasant Building Department staff
- State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional -Services Investigator
- State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Paralegal Staff
- State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Review Board
- Wind Point Municipal Judge John Knuteson
- Wind Point Municipal Clerk
In addition to the municipal complaints filed against Garski, Clausen and others also filed a host of additional complaints against him and asked for public requests related to his time as both a village trustee and village president:
- Hundreds of public records on Garski going back years were requested by Clausen and Sam Wahlen, the son of former Village Administrator Kurt Wahen.
- Wahlen filed a complaint with the Racine County District Attorney’s office against Garski saying he was violating campaign finance laws.
- Village Clerk Stephane Kohlhagen accused Garski of harassment for not getting a bigger raise.
- Garski’s opponent, Dave DeGroot, suggested Garski was involved in the egging of his house, issuing a press release and filing a police report during the April 2017 election.
Please see the timeline of events posted below as evidence that these complaints were fueled by purely political reasons. All complaints were determined unfounded, and all records requested led to no additional action against Garski.
The village has 20 days to appeal Judge Knuteson’s ruling.
