On State Assembly approves junk food stamps bill
Excellent example of the typical liberal mentality. We now have them considering government provided, taxpayer financed "free" food as a right and something that they are entitled to.As far as your comment regarding small government is concerned, I agree with you there. The program shouldn't be micromanaged, it should be completely shut down. That would fall under your defition of promoting smaller government....no?-------------------These programs are nothing more than people getting back a little bit of what they payed in to help them through a hard time. This is the exact situation that the program was designed for. It has nothing to do with your money. I suppose you'll whine about social security until you're on it, then you'll whine that it isn't enough. Do you actually think most people like having to use these programs? They don't.
On Kewaunee nuclear plant closes permanently
ozzman99, we can store the contaminated stuff in your basement.
Typical move of republicans. Always taking peoples rights away. So much for small government & all that. They are so very fascist.

On Janesville church builds symbol for community, travelers
I like the pentagram idea though. It is a religious symbol & has nothing to do with what the wacky christians say it does.
On SS Badger carferry kicks off sailing season
Natural gas, yeah sure. Why not use natural gas. Trading one evil for another. Natural gas production called fracking causes even more pollution.
Natural gas is the worst thing they could use.
On Wis. air show canceled after Blue Angels grounded
Don't blame the cancellation of the airshow on anyone other than the people running it. This was their decision. The fact that a few of the planes are not going to be there is a pathetic excuse for canceling.
On Hometown pride: Paul Ryan speaks at Forward Janesville's annual dinner
On Five things to know about Janesville's new trash collection system
I have a question. How much is Rock Disposal making off of the old bins? Are we, the city & the tax payers, going to be cut out of the profits? This better not be a freebie for the cities contractor.
On Janesville parks remain off-limits to dogs in summer
I think this is dumb. People are much more messy than the dogs. People that don't pick up after their dogs are the worst. Or the morons that can't control their dogs. I had one incident in a park with a dog owner that couldn't control his dog. Just one. My son & niece & nephews were walking our dogs on a local trail. All of the sudden this big yellow dog was running down the trail right at them. It start jumping on my niece & son & nipping at them. One of our dogs stuck its head under this unfamiliar dog & flipped it, & then held it by the throat (not harming it in any way) until we got the kids away from it. Our dog released when commanded & the dog ran back to its owner, who was running down the hill at us screaming about controlling our animals. This guy had the audacity to complain about what our dogs did to protect the kids. One dog just stood & watched by the way (the other dog had it under control). The strange dog had no collar, no leash, no tags. They were all in the guys hand. Then the guy says I hope I get you in court sometime. He must have been a local judge or something. So we did the responsible thing, we got pictures of him, his dog (loose with no leash, collar, or tags), his car, his wife, & and his license plates. We told him not to go anywhere & that we were calling the police. We reminded him that leaving the scene of a crime was illegal. Needless to say he got the heck out of dodge. These are the types of people that give responsible dog owners a bad name. One lady purposely lets her dogs leash out (& her dog will sometimes do it's business in my yard, which she leaves there) when she goes by my house just to antagonize my dogs. There are 2 sides to this debate. But you can't punish all for the misdeeds of a few. If people took personal responsibility we wouldn't even be having this discussion. If you see somebody not cleaning up there dogs mess, call the police. They will not be leaving anything after they've gotten a ticket for it. Wow, that was a rant.
