Milw North Branch Mtg on Tue May 24

We will start at 7pm at our regular meeting place, Kam’s Thistle & Shamrock on 84th & Lisbon.
After talking with Orland Owens we have decided to have a joint meeting with the Milwaukee North Branch and the Black Conservative Coalition. Many are already members of both groups, but we wanted the maximum amount of discussion on the Juneteenth outreach.
The meeting should be interesting as we will get an update on the happenings at the Republican Convention which was held last weekend.

I’ve invited State Rep. Jessie Rodriguez who serves the 21st Assembly district to attend this meeting. She has a tough re-election coming up and is in the cross hairs of area unions. Since we don’t have any North side legislators, we may want to adopt her campaign.

Juneteenth will be our major focus of the meeting.

I renewed my library card, wait til you hear what I had to do . . .

To renew my library card:

1. I had to show my driver’s license.

2. I had to sign on an electronic signature capture device.

3. I had to have my PICTURE taken.

All this for a library card. But they didn’t ask for my birth certificate.

And there are people criticizing Arizona for enforcing federal laws and national borders??

RWGM Coffee Klatch on Sat May 21

We know you’ll also enjoy the social time with like-minded women from the area, and we have a great speaker: Susan Hitchler. (See below for more information about Susan!) Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. at the Chancery, 7615 W State Street, Wauwatosa. Although an RSVP is not necessary, it is appreciated to rwgminfo AT .

Susan Hitchler will share her chilling story of overly aggressive prosecutors with a political agenda – and what really happens with “plea bargaining”. Susan forgot her firearm in the bathroom of her Church. Three witnesses confirm the gun was there less than five minutes, no children were present, and two adults picked it up. Nevertheless, this lifelong, law-abiding, great-grandmother was dragged through the Criminal Justice System on two separate criminal charges. Susan’s presentation includes examples of prosecutorial misconduct and what’s really involved with “plea bargaining.”

Susan Hitchler is a veteran keynote speaker and training consultant, ran her own professional speaking and corporate consulting company for 20 years, and is certified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She also worked for the State of Wisconsin for 10 years placing special needs children for adoption. Join us to hear how Susan “refused to cede [neither] her constitutional right to self-defense for the rest of her life, nor her private property…when she had committed no crime,” as Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry, Inc.) so aptly puts it.

Efficient Government Agencies

A method to cut government spending where bureaucrats will WANT to cut!

It is a well known and quite understandable reaction of any bureau to make sure that the current year’s budget has been spent by the end of the fiscal year, even on unnecessary projects, else they lose it. Personal interest should have every employee watching for any possible waste of the taxpayer’s dollars.

A new budgeting policy for each bureau should be established, where any unspent budgeted funds at the end of the fiscal year shall be equally divided up and paid out to all of the employees in that bureau. Then the lower budget figure, pre-disbursement, would be used for the next fiscal year, with, again, any unspent surplus being distributed to the employees who made the surplus possible.

No money would be saved the first year, but from then on every department would have continuously lowering budgets. Could the cost of running the state be cut in half in three years? I think so. The bottom line would be far more efficient and less costly state services.

(Idea from Wayne Green)
