La Crosse Congressman Addresses Question about Border Adjustment Tax

February 28, 2017 - 10:56

A constituent asked Congressman Ron Kind (D-La Crosse) to comment about the Border Adjustment Tax that is being proposed in Washington. This new tax would lead to increased prices on many things that come to America from across the border like clothing, school supplies, and gasoline. It is a measure that President Trump called a 'bad idea' but some politicians are working on it anyway. To his credit, Kind states that it is something that he is concerned about and will dig into it further.

The Pit of Moral Decay (Warning: Explicit Material)

I hope every tax payer who sees this story from my friends at MacIver will find out if their local tax dollars are being used in this manner and do something to put a stop to it. Tony Evers must be stopped as just one step to correct this madness. Madison is in the pit of absolute moral decay by actively destroying the innocence of children in their schools. I find this to be so utterly disgusting and outrageous that I'm having a hard time finding words.

Neither WKBT nor WXOW saw fit to report on the real news from Congressman Ron Kind's (D-La Crosse) listening session: the insurrection mentality of the unhinged Democrats. Instead, the local media outlets did puff pieces that could be considered fake or pandering news.

There have been volumes written about the man. Yet, in light of current events, it is worthy to mention just two points that President Eisenhower made more than fifty-five years ago and how those points relate to today.

I was on my way to Luther High School to assist with a small project when I saw a large plume of smoke rising up into the sky about a block away from the school. I quickly drove to the source to see what was going on with my phone ready to dial 911. When I turned the corner I saw that an Onalaska police car and fire truck were already on the scene.

Fire, Ready, Aim

Ever since the November election in which Donald Trump handily defeated Hillary Clinton with 304 electoral votes our nation has been forced to witness constant protests from the Democrat side of the aisle. Without even thinking, they are shooting from the hip in their attempts to cause chaos throughout the nation. In the past, the defeated side of a presidential election used to back off their campaign rhetoric and respect the will of the people by allowing a new president some time to get his administration up and running.

Patriotic Americans around the nation celebrated the birthday of President Ronald Reagan on February 6, 2017.

Participants are invited to introduce themselves and provide their own personal memories of who most consider to be the greatest president in their lifetime. Stories around the dinner table were heart felt and deeply personal.
