Don’t miss our heartwarming closing story every week!

From WI Right To Life.

Here’s the latest Monday Update from Pro-Life Wisconsin.

Abortion fight returns to Wisconsin with litigation, new legislation and the backdrop of a key Supreme Court ruling.

Pro-abortion activists are in a state of hysteria.

Biden’s Silence on Abortion Rights at a Key Moment Worries Liberals according to the NY Times.

U.S. Taxpayers Don’t Want to Fund Abortion.

You would think it would be a given for babies born alive from failed abortions would receive lifesaving medical care, right? Unfortunately it is not, because such protections are not enforced. Instead, state legislatures have acted to pass what’s known as born-alive protection act bills to send to their governors, though it’s mostly Republicans signing legislation. Most Democratic governors have vetoed it. On Tuesday, Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) signed such legislation into law protecting these abortion survivors.

Culinary no-no #698


Our family loves going to Disney World. Spent about 10 days there in March.

And we ate well, but at a cost. Because WDW gives away nothing.

For example I thoroughly enjoyed my Tomahawk Veal Chop with Potato-Spring Onion Gratin and Lemon-Veal Jus at Topolino’s Terrace at the Riviera Resort.

Phenomenal. And worth every penny of that $52 price tag in my view.

As a member of a few WDW forums on Facebook I read very often about guests who do off property grocery shopping to avoid expensive meals at the parks and resorts. Not my cup of tea. Never do that. Too much like work when I’m on vacation, and Disney has so much to offer and it’s so good that I’d rather not miss out. But I get it, especially since a Disney trip can break the bank.

(Related is a complaint I’ve heard many times that someone’s FILL IN THE BLANK at Disney was the worst meal they’ve ever had in their entire life. Sorry, that’s absurd.).

So, would you buy a $100 sandwich? The immediate answer is probably no. Not even if Disney princesses serenaded me and danced around my table that offered front row seating for a fireworks show. Well, let me re-think for a bit.

OK. Back to reality. A $100 sandwich. This one’s actually at Disneyland.

But they’re not any cheaper. What pray tell is on/in it?

Salami. Good.

Rosemary Ham. Also good.


Sun-dried Tomato Spread.

All on Toasted Focaccia, served with Marinara Dipping Sauce and Arugula Salad.

Nothing wrong at all if you ask me. Except, $99.99? C’mon man!

But is that really so bad, bad enough to warrant as a no-no?

BJ Thomas has died

B.J. Thomas, Grammy-winning singer who topped charts across genres, dies at  78 | CBC News

B.J. Thomas, the Grammy-winning singer who enjoyed success on the pop, country and gospel charts has died. He was 78.

A Hugo, Oklahoma-native who grew up in Houston, Billy Joe Thomas broke through in 1966 with a gospel-styled cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and went on to sell millions of records and have dozens of hits across genres. He reached No. 1 with pop, adult contemporary and country listeners in 1976 with ″(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.” The same year, his “Home Where I Belong” became one of the first gospel albums to be certified platinum for selling more than 1 million copies.

Just blogged about him last month.

Celebrating the ‘greatest generation’: Re-enactment marks 100th birthday of WWII veteran

Your tax dollars at work: PBS and masks

Full disclosure: I worked at WUWM-FM Milwaukee Public Radio from May 1978- August 1989 when my contract wasn’t renewed. Management at WUWM really showed me. While I enjoyed my entire time there, I went from a station with ratings lower than a gopher’s basement to WTMJ-AM. I have maintained federal support for public radio and TV, given their extreme one-sided liberal political support, must end.

Case in point, this insulting, disgusting public service announcement:

Today marks Day 1 of 7 upcoming bad days for Franklin Alderman Dan Mayer

Over the next few months there will be several days that will torment Franklin’s Alderman NO.

1) Today, May 29

2) June 19

3) June 26

4) July 16

5) July 30

6) August 14

7) August 28

Any or all of these days could find Mayer frustrated, angry, hiding under the bed, in a fetal position.

Why? Because these are dates the Milwaukee Milkmen have scheduled Fireworks Nights (tonight’s show honors our military).

Mayer gets a twisted joy from tearing Franklin down. You can bet any time there’s a chance for the Franklin Common Council to take action to advance the city Mayer will be opposed, especially when it involves Ballpark Commons. Mayer has chosen to side with whiny Franklinites who complain the city’s most popular destination is just too plain (WAH WAH!) noisy.



I say congrats to the Milkmen for scheduling wonderful promotions all season long for their thousands of fans.

Eric Burdon & the Animals answer the musical question, what will be the fans’ favorite sound at tonight’s Milkmen game?
