Dozens of Muslims leave company that limits prayer to scheduled breaks

It’s kind of hard to halt a production line several times a day to accommodate a prayer break. The manufacturing process is sensitive yet apparently the Muslims who work/worked there are more sensitive.
Dozens of Muslim employees at a Wisconsin manufacturer say they are now out of a job after the company changed its prayer-on-the-job policy.
Fox News reports that Brillion-based Ariens Company changed their policy last Thursday. The policy originally allowed Muslim employees to leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of their five daily required prayers. Workers would pray five minutes at a time, assigning their duties to colleagues while they prayed.
But Ariens is now asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks. A company representative told WBAY-TV the “manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.”
The company’s new policy change affects 53 workers. Ten of those employees have indicated they wish to stay in their current positions under the new policy, the company said. Ariens said the company “put a considerable amount of effort into finding a solution that allows for employees of Muslim faith to pray during work hours,” including meeting with members of the company’s Somali employee group and consulting with local Muslim faith representatives.
The company said in a statement, “We are open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy or will look for openings in shifts that do not coincide with prayer time. We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not.”
Of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wasn’t pleased with any of this. They called on Ariens to allow Muslim workers to pray at work using the previous policy until the dispute is resolved. “These types of accommodation disputes can be resolved in a spirit of respect for constitutionally-protected religious rights and for the legitimate needs of both employees and employers,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said in a news release.

Here We Go Again. White Cop Kills Saintly Black Teen….Well Read On.

Here’s the typical Bullshit.

Wis. police urge restraint after officer kills black teen


Protesters march in Wisconsin after black man shot dead by police


And now for the rest of the story.
Here is one line I took from first link From The Perps,  oops, Victims Mother.
Although the victim was not named by police, WKOW-TV spoke to his mother, Andrea Irwin, who identified the 19-year-old as Tony Robinson.
“My son has never been a violent person,” Irwin said. “And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me.”
Got That? Good now read this.

Wisconsin Shooting Victim, 19, Was Convicted Last Year For Role In Armed Home Invasion

MARCH 7, 2015
The unarmed Wisconsin teenager who was shot to death last night during a confrontation with a Madison cop pleaded guilty last year to armed robbery and recently began serving a three-year probation term for that felony conviction, court records show.
Umm, Armed robbery?
According to police, an officer responded Friday to a 911 call about a man who had assaulted a victim and was dodging cars in traffic. The cop followed the suspect into a nearby apartment, where the man allegedly struck the officer in the head, knocking him to the ground. During an ensuing struggle, patrolman Matt Kenny fatally shot the suspect.
Family and friends have identified the victim as Anthony “Tony” Robinson, a 19-year-old Madison resident. “The initial finding at the scene did not reflect a gun or anything of that nature that would have been used by the subject,” said Madison Police Chief Mike Koval.
Robinson’s mother, Andrea Irwin, said that, “My son has never been a violent person. And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me
Robinson, pictured above, was arrested last April following an armed home invasion at a Madison residence,
Oh wait that’s armed robbery while doing a home invasion. I see not violent at all.
according to police records. Cops were called to the scene around 6 AM by a neighbor who “spotted several men, one of them armed with a long gun, entering an apartment building,” according to a police report.
Police arrived at the home “just as the armed robbery was ending” and a group of suspects was fleeing “with electronics and other property.” Cops subsequentlyrecovered a shotgun and a facsimile handgun used during the robbery, as well as some of the stolen property.
Rest of Smoking Gun story HERE!!!
OK, you get my point. Sorry the kid is dead, but to say he is non violent has just been disproved and again Rule number 1 When you hit an armed man especially a Policeman you will likely dead.

“White people did not exist on planet earth until 1681” – Jacqueline Battalora



Walter E. Williams: ‘Average parent has no idea of indoctrination going on in classrooms’

author-image WALTER WILLIAMS


What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation.

The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference.

In one of the workshops, “Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom,” educators Rosemary Colt and Diana Reeves told how teachers can “insert social justice, anti-racist information” into their lessons that “even little kids” can understand.

Kim Radersma, a former high-school English teacher, hosted a session titled, “Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher.” She said teaching is a purely political act and that neutral people should “get the f— out of education.”

aa-kill-whitey-t-shirtShe also explained: “Being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic. I will never be recovered by my alcoholism, to use the metaphor. I have to every day wake up and acknowledge that I am so deeply embedded with racist thoughts and notions and actions in my body that I have to choose every day to do anti-racist work and think in an anti-racist way.”

But the propaganda and lunacy go even deeper. Jacqueline Battalora, professor of sociology and criminal justice at Saint Xavier University, informed conference participants that “white people did not exist before 1681. Again, white people did not exist on planet earth until 1681.”

That’s truly incredible. If professor Battalora is correct, how are we to identify William Shakespeare (1564), Sir Isaac Newton (1642), John Locke (1632), Leonardo da Vinci (1452) and especially dear Plato (428 B.C.)? Were these men people of color, or did they not exist?

John A. Powell, a University of California, Berkeley, law professor, told his audience, “And right now, I’m going to suggest to you that race is driving almost everything that’s happening in the country.” He explained the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans by saying, “They took money away from protecting the levees because the levees were protecting black people.”

Stephanie Baran’s message to conference participants was that capitalism is the cause of racism in the world today. This adjunct professor at Kankakee Community College, who calls herself a vulgar Marxist, added that racism was invented in Colonial America by white capitalists as a tool to divide labor and keep the working class in their place.

Educator Paul Kivel explained what he sees as Christian hegemony, saying, “Very simply, I define it as the everyday pervasive, deep-seated and institutionalized dominance of Christian values, Christian institutions, leaders and Christians as a group, primarily for the benefit of Christian ruling elites.”

Speaker Leonard Zeskind – according to the MacIver Institute, which covered the event – explained that “the longer you are in the tea party, the more racist you become.” He added, “Parents put their kids in private schools because they’re racist.”

University of Iowa professor Adrien Wing gave some of her observations about white privilege, asking, “Does having a black president change that? Has it changed that? Unfortunately, it hasn’t. … (President Obama) ends up being the front man for the system. … He works for the master of the system of white privilege.”

I can’t imagine people being stupid enough to believe all that was said at the White Privilege Conference. There’s something else at work. I think it’s white guilt. That’s why, for almost three decades, there has appeared on my website a certificate of amnesty and pardon that I’ve granted to Americans of European ancestry in the hope that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools.

Wisconsin Marine Corps Veteran, CCW Holder, Draws Gun Stops Man From Beating Woman To Death.

I’ll put this in the “score one for the good guy’s column

—————————————      ~Steve~   ——————————————–

The Huffington Post | By Andres Jauregui
Posted: 03/16/2013 12:35 pm EDT

A Marine Corps veteran with a concealed carry permit stopped a suspect in a brutal beating in West Allis, Wis., on Tuesday morning when he drew his gun and called the police.


Marine Corps veteran Charlie Blackmore stopped a beating by drawing his concealed carry weapon on a suspect Tuesday

Charlie Blackmore, Jr. told Wisconsin Fox affiliate WITI that he saw a man kicking a woman in the head and belly at the side of the road as he was driving to work early the morning of March 12. He pulled his car over and told the suspect to stop, but the man came towards him.

That’s when Blackmore, who served in the Marines from 2005 to 2007, decided to draw his weapon, a 9mm handgun. Blackmore told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the suspect, who he estimated stood more than 6 feet tall and weighed about 220 pounds, proceeded to taunt him, reportedly saying “Shoot me, then.”

According to WITI, audio of Blackmore’s 911 call reveals the suspect tried to walk away when confronted.

“There’s a black male that just beat up a female in the street. He’s walking away from me. I told him to stop,” Blackmore said on the call. “If you come at me, I will shoot you,” he told the suspect.

Although Blackmore kept his cool. When police arrived, they forced the suspect to the ground and asked for Blackmore’s concealed carry permit.

“I put my hands up turned around and said ‘you can grab it out of my wallet.’ Checked my permit, gave me my wallet back, and then interviewed me for their paperwork,” Blackmore told WITI.
Blackmore told the Journal Sentinel that the woman said her an attacker was an ex-boyfriend. The veteran said that the victim’s eye had swollen shut from the beating, and that her nose looked broken.

The suspect, identified as 43-year-old Kenneth Harris, is charged with substantial battery and could face up to three years and a half years in prison if convicted.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., a proponent of the state’s new concealed carry law, who has urged residents to arm themselves and take firearms classes, praised Blackmore in a statement Wednesday. It read in part:

I want to get to a day when acts like this are viewed as a citizen doing their civic duty. Criminals have got to be reassessing things right now. They have to be asking themselves if it is worth it anymore, might they face resistance or be shot? That’s a good thing.
Blackmore told the Journal Sentinel that he owns eight guns and carries one on him regularly, explaining ‘[feels] naked without it.” In an interview with Fox

Wisconsin’s concealed carry law went into effect in November 2011. Some have criticized the law because it does not make applications for permits by convicted criminals and fugitives public information, although it does make that information available to police.

I’m sorry, but the above BOLD seems real dumb to me.

That’s all they have to complain about.  Stupid people.

Sheriff urges you to "learn to use guns"


Wisconsin sheriff tells residents that calling 911 is ‘no longer your best  option,’ urges them to learn to use guns

NY Post: A sheriff who released a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to  handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police said Friday that law enforcement cutbacks have changed the way police can respond to  crime.
In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says  personal safety is no longer a spectator sport. “I need you in the game,” he says.
“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no  longer your best option,” he adds. “You can beg for mercy from a violent  criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. Consider taking a  certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there.”
The ad has generated sharp criticism from other area officials and  anti-violence advocates. The president of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, Roy Felber, said it sounds like a call to vigilantism. “That doesn’t sound too smart,” Felber said. “People have the right to defend  themselves, but they don’t have the right to take the law into their own hands.”
Under Wisconsin’s “castle doctrine,” someone who uses deadly force against an  unlawful intruder to their home, business or vehicle is presumed to have acted  reasonably. A spokeswoman for the state Department of Justice said that as of  this week, there are about 155,000 concealed carry permits in Wisconsin.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Clarke said he just wants people  to know what their options are. While self-defense isn’t for everyone, some people see personal safety as their own responsibility, he said, and they should  be trained properly. “I’m not telling you to ‘Hey, pick up a gun and blast away.’ People need to know what they are doing if they chose that method — to defend themselves,” he said.
But he also said he wanted to call on residents to be law enforcement “partners.” He said he could either whine about budget cuts that forced him to  lay off 48 deputies last year or he could get creative.
People are responsible to play a role in their own safety, with the help of  law enforcement,” Clarke said. “I’m here to do my part, but we have fewer and fewer resources. We’re not omnipresent, and we have to stop giving people that impression.”
“After sitting down and thinking about this, I’m thinking ‘Hey, I’ve got an  untapped reserve over here, and it’s the public,”’ Clarke said.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s office released a statement criticizing the  ad: “Apparently Sheriff David Clarke is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie.” Barrett was beaten up several years ago by someone with a tire iron, and  Clarke said he thought that would make the mayor “a lot more sensitive to people  being able to defend themselves in such instances. A firearm and a plan of  defense would have come in handy for him that day.”
Jeri Bonavia, executive director of Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort, said Clarke took a dangerous position with his ad. She pointed to the case of George  Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida who fatally shot an unarmed  17-year-old following an altercation. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to  second-degree murder, claiming self-defense under Florida’s “stand your ground” law.
“I feel like this is such an irresponsible thing for our chief public safety officer of a county to do,” Bonavia said. “I think he owes this community an apology. And if he really believes that he’s not capable of providing for our public safety he should get a different job.”
Advocating we become “Dirty Harry”? Didn’t sound like Clarke was suggesting we do that. He was responsible in suggesting you take a certified class to learn to use a weapon.
From my research on the web, police do not have a Constitutional duty to protect you. This was based on the 2005 Supreme Court ruling of the Town of Castle Rock, Colorado v. Jessica Gonzales. (Please advise if I am incorrect.)
If someone breaks into my home or tries to attack me, I will take the law into my own hands. Because when seconds count, the police are minutes away.

Romney sues Wisconsin about military absentee votes

Already two thousand of our soldiers have died in the war in Afghanistan.

But for the POS in the Oval Office, our soldiers are good enough to die in wars but not good enough to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

Although the majority of members of our military –an estimated two-thirds — will need to vote by absentee ballot for the upcoming November election, an alarmingly small percentage of military voters are requesting absentee ballots.

This is due to the Pentagon not providing our soldiers with adequate voter-assistance and access. In contrast, civilian voters — including non-English speakers (and many an illegal alien!) — enjoy plentiful voter-assistance through motor-vehicle offices and social-service agencies.

Given the fact that a recent Military Times poll found that members of active and reserve military overwhelmingly favor Romney over Obama 2 to 1 — not because of any particular military issues such as the Afghan war, but because of the economy and the candidates’ character — I don’t doubt that the unusually small number of military absentee ballot requests is due to the deliberate negligence on the part of Pentagon brass who are suck-ups to their disgrace of a Commander In Chief.

(By the way, like active duty military, veterans too favor Romney over Obama by 20% nationwide and especially in the critical battleground states.)

But Mitt Romney is doing something about this, at least in the state of Wisconsin where, according to RealClearPolitics, Obama has a 2.3 point lead. (In 2008, however, Obama won Wisconsin by nearly 14 points, and the momentum in the state is on Romney’s side.)

Tony Lee reports for Breitbart.com, Oct. 15, 2012:

Mitt Romney’s campaign has sued Wisconsin, asking a federal judge for an injunction to extend the deadline for absentee ballots for military personnel and civilians overseas by five days. The Romney campaign alleges Wisconsin election officials were late in sending out absentee ballots to civilians and military voters stationed overseas.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, there are about 6,120 military and overseas voters in Wisconsin.

A spokesman for the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board told the Gazette “27 municipalities missed the deadline for various reasons to send ballots to a total of 44 military and overseas voters” and “all 44 ballots were sent to the affected voters within five days of the missed deadline.”

By federal law, absentee ballots must be sent to military and overseas voters by September 22 and those ballots must be returned by November 9.

The lawsuit alleges Wisconsin “failed to ensure that absentee ballots were sent to military and overseas voters who validly requested them” and without the injunction, “it is unlikely that state officials will receive those individuals’ completed absentee ballots in time to be counted” in time.

That's Some Cloud!

A roll cloud extends far into the distance as a storm approached in 2007 in Racine, Wisconsin:

Image Credit: Pierre cb, Wikipedia

Explanation: What kind of cloud is this? A type of arcus cloud called a roll cloud. These rare long clouds may form near advancing cold fronts. In particular, a downdraft from an advancing storm front can cause moist warm air to rise, cool below its dew point, and so form a cloud. When this happens uniformly along an extended front, a roll cloud may form. Roll clouds may actually have air circulating along the long horizontal axis of the cloud. A roll cloud is not thought to be able to morph into a tornado. Unlike a similar shelf cloud, a roll cloud is completely detached from their parent cumulonimbus cloud.

A Man (GOP) with a Set Maybe.

Stop the presses. I think we have a Repub with a Spine. . ~Steve~


Freshman Republican Ron Johnson, sent to Washington by the voters of Wisconsin, has issued a threat to Senate Democrats:

Do the job you were sent here to do and present a budget or I’ll use arcane Senate rules to shut the place down.

National Review reviews Johnson’s threat:

America is going bankrupt, and the Senate refuses to pass a budget,” Johnson said. “Unfortunately, this has become business as usual in Washington.” If fact, it’s been almost 800 days since the Senate has done so under Democratic leadership.

As a freshman senator, Johnson said he was sent to Washington to reject “business as usual,” and that is exactly what he intends to do. “America is simply too precious to subject out financial future to Washington’s ‘business as usual,’” he said. “So unless we receive some assurance from the Democrat leadership that we will actually start addressing our budget out in the open, in the bright light of day — I will begin to object. I will begin to withhold my consent.”

UNION DUES: It's All About the Payroll Deduction

If you go on Google News and search “Union Dues” and “Payroll Deduction” you’ll see numerous states with legislation introduced to take government entities out of the dues collection loop for Big Labor.  In addition to Wisconsin;  Florida, Alabama and Tennessee are all in the news today.  
The unions are stirring up their  masses about  “worker’s rights” and “collective bargaining” but, I believe the heart of the matter is dues collection.  They simply do not trust their members to voluntarily pay dues —- to gratefully sit down and write out that check and mail it in month after month.
If the payroll-deducted union dues system is lost, what other payment options do unions have?   One that comes to mind is requiring members to provide their Visa/ bank account information authorizing the union to automatically deduct it from their members’ accounts each month or online dues paying with Visa.    That would be a very interesting scenario!
In my opinion, in this day and age, unions are an unnecessary evil.  The federal government established the  Department of Labor in 1913 to address the issues of workers’ rights.  It’s grown exponentially since that time.  They even do random personnel audits of individual businesses to assure compliance with all the federal labor regulations!   A  Dept of Labor auditor once spent a week at a union business  where I  worked, combing through all the employee and payroll files and doing private interviews with minority employees.  In addition, each state has their own complex regulations and laws to protect workers rights.
