Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my dears!  How are you?  I'm doing well.  The winter has been relatively mild so far, although we've been hit by storms on the last three weekends.  None of them lived up to what was predicted, but that didn't stop Racine from declaring a snow emergency before a flake hit the ground.  As it turned out, just a few flakes hit the ground and a "snow emergency" it wasn't.  When will the city and RUSD learn that weather predictions are less trustworthy than even my predictions?  Oh my.

Who's going to win the Super Bowl?  Who cares?  The Packers aren't playing, so I'm not watching.

Mr. Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason announced plans for a $48 million hotel and convention center adjacent to Festival Hall.  He's so proud of this idiotic scheme.  It will cost us only $21 million in incentives.  That's nearly half the cost of the entire project.  Of course, once our money has been dispensed, this thing will "fail," leaving the taxpayers holding the bag.  Just another way for local government to rip us off.  I'm so sick of these city schemes.  Why can't a developer and the city be honest about a project for once?

Look at Foxconn.  I know that it's located in Mount Pleasant, but it serves to instruct.  When first announced, Foxconn was supposed to be a state of the art facility producing LCD screens for TVs and smart phones.  They made all sorts of predictions, including "innovation centers" all over Wisconsin.  As it turns out, a lot of these things were inaccurate, if not outright lies.  Foxconn is building in Mount Pleasant, but nobody knows what.  As Foxconn misses its building and employee targets, it sounds more and more like it will never live up to its promise.  Goodbye tax dollars, hello scam.  Don't you get sick of this?  How much more money must be stolen before taxpayers wake up?

How about RUSD's proposed $1 billion referendum?  One billion dollars.  They must be insane.  They have been given millions and millions of dollars in the past to repair and maintain school buildings.  Instead, they have taken the money and given themselves raises and more benefits.  Now they want to squander $1 billion more.  The voters of Racine just might be stupid enough to give it to them.  One of the worst school districts in the state gets rewarded and rewarded by taxpayers.  Why should they change?  The scam has worked well in the past.  Why wouldn't it work this time?

On and on it goes.  The taxpayers work and sweat while government steals their money and pees it away on crooked deals.  As long as you're willing to let them pick your pockets, they will continue to do so.  Only you can stop this.  But, I know, you're too busy making money for the criminals in government to stop them.  You're too busy being ripped off to stop and think.  That's OK.  That's how the thieves in office carry on.  You will continue to give them your money while you sit over a beer complaining about it.  'Butterball' thanks you for being a drone.  All of the criminals in office thank you.  Stay stupid.  Stay a slave to crooks.

Oh my.  I didn't mean to scold you, my dears.  It's just that I get so frustrated with the rip off artiste in government.  It seems that if you're a criminal, 'Butterball' will welcome you with open arms.  What a pig.

Thank you for reading my blog today.  I love you all.  Never give up on yourselves.  I won't.

Please be sure to respect one another.  It's our best hope for peace.
