Making U-Wisconsin Strong

I, most strongly, maintain that the best way to return UW to its fullest strength, and that as the useful servant of the People, is to have the Legislature most formally and solemnly declare that the “Public Policy”of Wisconsin is:
  1. The primary goal of UW is to provide the the university ready youth of Wisconsin with a quality and affordable university education;
  2. The secondary goal of that school is to develop new knowledge and views of our world as will be openly known to all AND not to be kept secrete for the benefit of any individual(s) or organization(s);
  3. The ownership and governance of UW belongs equally to all of the People of Wisconsin without regard to any employment-by or enrollment-in that school;
  4. No qualified citizen of Wisconsin may be excluded from student status at any campus of UW in favor of the citizen of another of the Several States and, more specially, of some other nation; And,
  5. . All faculty and other employees of UW, students of that school and visitors to it are entitled to the full protections (As intended by the Authors) of the United State's Bill Of Rights AND like provisions of Article-I of Wisconsin’s Constitution.
I have long maintained that a best way of enacting-and-enforcing such public policy is to:
  1. Have the People of Wisconsin directly elect the UW Regents (As is done in Nebraska), the same number from each Congressional District (To provide for democratic and court-required equal representation) from candidates who receive no benefit from that school;
  2. And, turn over the full governance of UW to those democratically elected Regents.
The financial “problems”of UW could be best resolved by, among other steps, having those elected Regents::
  1. Exclude from enrollment all persons not already qualified for university-level scholarship (eg Eliminate all “affirmative action” and like programs);
  2. Require that all moneys received from patents and copyrights be directly assigned to UW's “General Fund” and not, as now, be given to some under-performing and grossly under-supervised agency;
  3. Require that all of UW's salaried employees turn over to that fund all speaker's fees and other income received (Less reasonable travel expenditures) while an employee of our university;
  4. Assuming that UW's President, Chancellors and other high officials are “well spoken” and fully
    qualified to address the issues of UW, fire all of that school's “spokes critters”;
  5. Have a comprehensive study of UW done: By such organization(s) as is (Are) fully divorced from any person(s) or organization(s) staffed-by or connected-to those “out of” the incestuous world of Academia; To determine if there is any scientific (ie “Reliable and valid”, “with a high level of confidence” and validated by those “with no ax to grind”) to prove/demonstrate the the salaries (And fringe benefits) allocated to UW's President, Chancellors and other high official are “cost effective” and in the best interests of the People of Wisconsin; To, at the same level of proof, determine if “Tenure” serves that interest OR if it blocks the hiring of new and more energetic/productive faculty;
  6. Other than “professors”, library staff, grounds keepers and public safety officers, eliminate not less than 50% of all UW employees whose job title includes such terms as “Assistant” or “Deputy" or “Associate”---Without allowing those employees to be retained in other, probably non-productive, positions.

Communicating With Muslims On Jihad---Updated




The lessons of history and current events demonstrate that the only means of "communicating" with those Muslims waging Jihad is by the application of over whelming and deadly force as at: Tours (732 AD); Las Navas de Tolosa (1212 AD); Granada (1492 AD); Lepanto (1571 AD); Chocim/Khotym (1621 AD); Vienna (1683 AD); The USA's campaigns against the Islamist-Pirates of the Barbary States (1805-1815); Navarino (1827 AD); Israel’s various and defensive wars from 1948 on (Just in case you ask, I am not of the Jewish Faith nor do I have any financial interests in the State of Israel); Multinational mini-campaigns against the Islamist Pirates operating off the Muslim Sudan.

[To these I add the most excellent shooting down of the worm who assassinated a ceremonial guard on Canada's Parliament Hill and by the armed citizen who liquidated the swine who beheaded a lady in Oklahoma. I can now gladly add the lessons of The Sniper!]

Against SCOTUS




A Book Of Note: Chemerinsky, Erwin; The Case Against The Supreme Court;  Viking (Penguin Group); ISBN 978-0-670-02643-5; New York; 2014.

MY FURTHER THOUGHTS (RAVINGS?) ON SCOTUS & LAWYERS

Other Entries: This blog (Under “Law” and other headings) contains related materials.

President Jefferson On “Intent”:  "On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to to the probable one in which it was passed." [Please specially note that the term "trying" was used as in "boiling down" something (eg Whale blubber or the Constitution) to obtain what the actors wish (eg Whale oil or perverse decisions.]

Judicial Abuse Of The Constitution:  The US Courts, on the basis of Marbury Vs. Madison have seized such powers as allow them to “make law” in violation of the exact words and the intent of the authors of the 1789 Constitution and, as needed for the ratification of that, most basic law, the Bill Of Rights (And such later matters as the “14th  Amendment”) as in inflicted on the People by avoiding its constitutional, internal and democratic means of changes.  The following are special examples of that abuse.
1.               The “1st Amendment” declared the right of a “free exercise of religion”. That did not mean that “wall of separation” as mentioned by President Jefferson in a private letter which was taken by a one-time and active member of the KKK to mutilate the real intent which was to prevent only the Federal Government from establishing such a State Church/Religion as was so common, then, throughout the World. (Please note that some of the States maintained “Official Churches” into the 1830s and that without judicial interference.)
2.               The “Inter-State Commerce Clause” has been mis-used to extent Federal power to almost every aspect of life and that towards the destruction of the intent of the “10th Amendment”. As far as I can tell, the intent of that clause was to prevent the Several States from the abuses of “import duties” and other trade restrictions as had under “The Articles Of Confederation”.
3.               The Courts and the other branches of government have danced around (And, sometimes, goose-stepped on) the “shall not be infringed” clause of the “2nd Amendment”. The patriot Founders of our Republic: Were masters of our English language and knew exactly what “shall not” and “infringed” meant; And, were very exact in supporting an armed citizenry, holding modern arms as issued to soldiers, as the ultimate and best safeguard against tyrants and tyranny.
4.               The above-noted expansion of Federal powers has lead to, among other dangers, a plague of Federal agencies who have the practical power to take property in violation of the intent of the “4th Amendment” and are now armed at a military level with the most modern weapons.
5.               As far as I can tell that the “14th Amendment” was created only to provide the, then, recently freed slaves with a certain minimum of political rights.  Since then, the Courts have abused that provision to: Work towards a further destruction of the “10th Amendment”; And, invent “rights” not contemplated by its authors or the Authors of the 1789 Constitution

Proper Charge Against Ferguson's Darren Wilson


The proper charge against Ferguson Missouri's Darren Wilson would have been "LITTERING".

After all, he deposited on a public street about 300-pounds of illegal-drug and lead contaminated garbage.

Which "Radical Islam"???

The real “Radical Muslims” are those who do NOT follow the teachings of Islam as allow or encourage or command the use of murder, genocide, rape, torture, theft, lying (To deceive “unbelievers”), torture, wife-beating and other such horrors to further Islam itself and the individual, perverted, lusts of adult, male, true-believers in that criminal-terrorist ideology.

Those abominations were inflicted on the world by that fellow Mohammed of Mecca and Medina, the inventor of Islam. Muslims present him as the “ideal and perfect man”. Mohammed was, himself, a murderer, liar and treaty-breaker, bandit and the perverted sexual abuser of a nine-year-young girl-child. “Real Muslims” follow that life-example to this day.

Those self-identified as “Muslims” who do not follow the above-noted and anti-civilization teachings and examples are true “Radical Muslims” and, within the community of true believing-and-behaving Muslims (ie The ummat al-Islamiyah) are heretics and may be subject to summary killing by the “True Believers”.

If you continue to use the terms “Radical Muslim” or “Radical Islam” to describe those, claiming to be Muslims, who loyally follow the horrors demonstrated by such as ISIS, Boko Haram, Hamas and other faithful “Sons Of The Prophet”, you are:
  1. Lying in cooperation with Mohammed's commands to deceive; Or,
  2. Forwarding the method of “Telling a lie so often that it becomes the truth”; Or,
  3. Both---To the total destruction of your credibility.

THOSE HORRORS ARE ISLAM!

Communicating With Jihadists---Updated



THE LESSON OF HISTORY & CURRENT EVENTS
AS TO “COMMUNICATING” WITH THOSE WAGING JIHAD

The lessons of history and current events demonstrate that the only means of "communicating" with those Muslims waging Jihad is by the application of over whelming and deadly force as at: Tours (732 AD); Las Navas de Tolosa (1212 AD); Granada (1492 AD); Lepanto (1571 AD); Chocim/Khotym (1621 AD); Vienna (1683 AD); The USA's campaigns against the Islamist-Pirates of the Barbary States (1805-1815); Navarino (1827 AD); Israel’s various and defensive wars from 1948 on (Just in case you ask, I am not of the Jewish Faith nor do I have any financial interests in the State of Israel); Multinational mini-campaigns against the Islamist Pirates operating off the Muslim Sudan.

To these I add the most excellent shooting down of the mad dog who assassinated a ceremonial guard on Canada's Parliament Hill and by the armed citizen who liquidated the swine who beheaded a lady in Oklahoma.

I can now gladly add the lessons of The Sniper!

Weapons On Work-Sites

There are many organizations/companies which forbid the bringing of guns and other weapons into their buildings or even (Illegally/unconstitutionally?) on their open properties (eg Parking lots). This is most specially noted by the many persons entering medical facilities. In most such cases there is a “posting”, by signs at entrances, of that prohibition. With very few exceptions, that also applies to employees.

Those who establish such policies seem to have ignored the following:
  1. The best recent evidence (eg From The Centers For Disease Control) is that the armed person is much less “likely” to be murdered or maimed by a criminal than the “Nanny State Dependent” and unarmed targets of criminal attacks;
  2. The time between a “911” call and effective police action is long enough for a criminal to kill or injure many persons;
  3. There have been cases where the police did not respond to a call for help (In Madison, WI) in such cases or long delayed such responses (In Milwaukee, WI) until the victim was murdered;
  4. Unless a private organization/company has a level-of-security at/above that found at airports, requiring staff (And visitors) to disarm themselves before entering such companies or organizations may be financially liable for damages in the cases of the death-of or injuries-to such weapon-deprived persons; And,
  5. Without exact information, I suggest that there are many more deaths/injuries caused by criminal intruders than by the staffs or law-abiding visitors to such places (Further research needed!).

You might note the possession of a handgun, in violation of employer's rules, by Dr. Lee Silvermann at the Mercy Fitzgerald Wellness Center (In Pennsylvania) as allowed him to shoot-and-kill a mental patient who had just murdered a staff member---And do so before (Alleged) armed security staff and very much before police responded. [Should such an employee be subject to discipline OR honored and that by means including a change in anti-weapon policy?]

Hiring Criminals & Probability Theory

It appears that there are many (Especially the Fascist actors in the current Federal Administration) who are, more-and-more, “leaning on” private-sector employers to not reject persons with criminal conviction histories (Especially before going through other qualifications/factors), especially those as are related to the proposed job duties and, thereby, wasting the limited resources of those who invest their legally hard-earned moneys in such businesses.

It appears that those tyrants require an education in “Probability Theory” and its principles (As based on criminal justice experience and the basics of scientific methods).
  1. The accuracy of any (Probability) statements approaches 100% as more-and-more confirming examples are recorded-and-experienced Vs. those which oppose any such statement.
  2. Those who have been convicted of crimes are more likely to continue criminal behaviors (Although not necessary the same offenses) than those without such convictions.
  3. That is even more so/probable as to non-economic arsonists and sexual predators.
  4. Sexual offenders who begin such crimes in their teen years and have not stopped by age 30-years are likely to continue until death or the gross weakness of very old age.
  5. The vast supply of data demonstrates that Blacks (16 to 30 years-of-age) are very more likely to commit serious crimes than Whites and very, very, more more likely to do so than Asians.

Those who still “push” for such risky employment of others should:
A. Arrange for the hiring of sexual predators or non-economic arsonists in the day-care-centers or schools in which their children or grandchildren are enrolled OR as family-hired “baby sitters” in their own homes;
B. Hire those found guilty of embezzlement to be accountants/book-keepers/financial-officers to manage those “advocates'” own personal funds or the companies in which they have invested or in such organizations (eg Labor unions, political party units) to which they belong.


PS---In large part the above is based on my 34-years of professional work in a State “Department Of Corrections”
