Legislator Remove-and-Replace List on Marijuana Legalization: Northern WI NORML

Credit: Northern Wisconsin Norml

Wisconsin Assembly and Senate Committee Member Target Districts will change and vary from session to session, but there are some familiar names on this list.

“RED” symbols are the Republican Legislators

Anyone who is listed as a Sponsor or Supporter of Marijuana Reform probably does not need as much work in their districts as do these other people.

We are not here to point fingers or say these people are holding a medical marijuana bill hostage or that they are going to let marijuana legislation die in committee, but someone has to. A few names on this list do not even want the ballot question to reach any conversation, let alone a vote by the citizens of Wisconsin.

Good luck, we have our work cut out for us.

Mike McCabe’s points on a Clean Government for Wisconsin

Mike McCabe is one of many candidates to be running in the Democratic Party Primary for Governor of Wisconsin. Here are his points on moving towards clean and open government in this state:

” * Create full disclosure of political donations and election spending, and set tighter limits on campaign contributions that are a quarter of what current state law allows.

* Update Wisconsin’s conflict of interest law to prevent state public officials from taking actions benefiting donors who have contributed more than $1,000 to their campaign committees or spent more than $5,000 on election advertising favoring the officials.

* Take redistricting out of the hands of elected officials who stand to benefit from the legislative district boundaries they draw and assign the task to an independent, nonpartisan legislative service agency in a process modeled after Iowa’s system.

* Restore independent oversight of elections and government ethics by replacing party-affiliated elections and ethics commissioners with a nonpartisan agency headed by a board whose members cannot belong to a political party and cannot endorse or financially support candidates for partisan office.

* Bring back civil service protections for government hiring to ensure those getting state positions are chosen based on what they know and not who they know.

* Repeal discriminatory voter suppression measures such as Wisconsin’s Voter ID law.”

– Mike McCabe, Wisconsin governor candidate’s “plan for freeing state government from the clutches of cronyism, corruption and what amounts to legal bribery of state officials.”

Robots wipe out the UAW – General Gordon Baker, Jr., LRNA Genl Secretary

General Baker on Robots Wipe out the UAW

“And lo and behold, Chicago, by the time we finished most of those battles, then we’re confronted with this thing where uh, where all the robots began to enter the plants. And all the work that you’d done to advance your cause, and the tactics for jobs and things, are now being eliminated in mass by robots. And uh, the whole struggle for equality and stuff in the workforce, been transferred to the struggle for survival. Survival, plain and simple, because we got, we not no way, we got no way to live.

So that poses the question we got now. Really, I mean, without jobs, how we supposed to live? There are no jobs on the horizon. But does that mean, does a job mean, that’s your ticket to livelihood? I mean, you can’t live without a job? Is that, is that the kind of contradictions in the world we fighting for? Uh, because it’s clear to us now, that the robots were so much more productive than we were, so they don’t need us in the workplace.

So now we gotta pose the question about, how we gonna live, in the current world? So you’re talking about a real change in the system that we’re living under, and the people’s perspective of it. I mean, a job has been a, it’s used as a discipline in the family. You know, the kids get old enough, you say, ” get out and get a job!” Now, how you gonna do that now, when there ain’t none? You know I mean, so this whole question of jobs, and how we live, what kind of society we’re gonna have, and who got a right to live and who doesn’t? Who can eat, and who can have a home and who can’t? All those questions are being thrown into–it’s a moral question, that we got to deal with. And even though we fight to resist the acttacks that are put upon us, we gotta have, kind of a vision of, what kind of a world do we want? You know, what direction we want to go in?”


If you see somethin’, say somethin’ – watch WI Senate not-hearing on wolf poaching

“If you see somethin’ – say somethin’.”

WisEye.org should have the Wisconsin State Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage today Jan 16th, doing a Not-Hearing on Toxic Tiffany’s Wolf-Poacher Enabling bill.

Watch for signs of Walker Cult extremism on the part of the bill lead author, Toxic Tom Tiffany. If you see these signs, please report them to .

Working together we can all defeat the eco-terrorism of the sinister Walker-MAGA Cult. Here’s an old meme someone made, to inspire you. We are not the memetic engineers on this meme.



How haste empowers the “Shadow Legislature” (Wisconsin) by Sen. Vinehout

β€œWho put all this policy in the budget?” I whispered to my colleague the night the budget passed. β€œGroups,” he said glumly. β€œI call it the β€˜Shadow Legislature.’”

These groups are often from outside Wisconsin and often funded by large donors. Behind the scenes, they push for policy, added at the last minute, which is unrelated to the state budget but changed laws.

Recently, these groups came out of the shadows to directly ask for what they wanted.

It was a busy week in the Capitol. Forty-nine committee hearings and 150 bills moved in three days. Lawmakers scrambled to research complex bills.

Letter by Kerry Beheler.

Please copy and share, send to the Senators! Hearing is Tues 16 Jan, tomorrow. Thank you! “Senate Committee on Sporting Heritage, Mining and Forestry: SB602 as proposed would prevent Wisconsin law enforcement officers from enforcing or attempting to enforce any federal or state law relating to wolf management or the illegal killing, that is poaching, of wolves. This would make it illegal for law enforcement officers to enforce state or federal laws.

By forbidding both the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and federal US Fish and Wildlife Service agents from investigating WI wolf poaching, or other deaths, SB602 essentially allows those who wish to harm WI wolves to do so without fear of any consequences. Poaching, the illegal hunting or capturing of wild animals, of WI wolves should be investigated and enforced.

SB602 as proposed would also prevent the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources from expending any funds for the purpose of wolf population monitoring or management. These bills would only allow for the paying of depredation claims for damage caused by wolves.

SB602 seek to eliminate the ability to manage WI wolf populations. These bills ignore the vital role of WI to manage its wildlife, monitor wolf populations, disseminate information to the public, and show an inability to understand conservation. When discussing WI conservation issues, it is important to have all the facts. Species should be managed using the best available science in accordance with criteria established under the federal Endangered Species Act, or under proven state regulatory frameworks.

It is essential that WI maintain a scientific system to ensure the safety and management of all our wildlife, which are held in trust for the public.This is the public trust doctrine. We must scientifically monitor WI wolves to have knowledge of possible disease potentials, and to resolve possible conflicts between wolves and livestock producers.

Wolves are blamed for decimating the WI deer herd. This is simply not true. Weather and poor deer habitat have a far greater impact on deer populations than wolves. Research suggests that wolves actually strengthen deer populations and may limit the spread of diseases such as Chronic Wasting Disease by removing sick animals from the population. The northern WI deer herd is recovering from recent past severe winters. Wolves have not had a negative impact on the northern WI deer herd. The buck kill was up 28% in northern WI in 2016 despite record wolf numbers. Preliminary 2017 WI statewide deer harvest data indicates that all regions reported reduced deer kills EXCEPT the northern forest. This is where the wolves live. The Northern Region had a 28% buck kill increase for the second consecutive year. The wild free-ranging deer of northern WI do not have Chronic Wasting Disease. This is where the wolves live.

Management is crucial to WI wolf long term population survival. It is absolutely necessary for the WDNR to closely monitor wolf populations especially if a public hunting season again begins. The impact of combined mortality factors including disease and human taking, through legal hunting and illegal poaching, on the WI wolf population must be addressed, or the adequacy of state regulatory schemes will be challenged in the Courts.

I believe it is imperative the WI Legislature fulfill it’s responsibility to wolves as a public trust natural resource by supporting the further development and implementation of scientific wolf management practices.

I urge the members of this Committee to oppose SB602. Thank you for your consideration and protection of our WI natural resources.”
