We’re Thankful for Global Warming

How much colder would it be?

Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.

We’re talking Ice Age. During the several (yes, more than one) ice ages that Wisconsin has experienced, glaciers reached as far south as southern Illinois.

This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.

More glacial maps from  UW-Green Bay.

Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?

Make a difference, Become a pollworker

Make a difference in Milwaukee County.

The Republican Party of Milwaukee County, by State statute, gets to nominate people who want to be pollworkers in their own municipalities in Milwaukee County.

Become a paid Republican Pollworker:

Be on the front line of fighting vote fraud at the polling place.
This is a paid position, you are an employee of your municipality.
You are trained by your municipal clerk.
Besides working on Election Day you also may be offered additional time  prior to the election.
We need you to respond by November 15, so that we can then appoint you to your municipality by November 30.

Being a Republican pollworker in your municipality is an excellent way to help prevent election fraud while getting paid for it at the same time. If you are interested in being a (paid) pollworker, please contact the Republican Party of Milwaukee County at (414) 755-0002.

Volunteer to become an Election Observer:

Become the “eyes and ears” of the Republican Party.
We will arm you with the tools you will need to become an effective observer.
Your presence at the polls will let “would be violators” know that “we are watching”.
We want you to volunteer for the February primary or the April election so that you are an experienced observer for the all important fall elections.
Contact the Republican Party of Milwaukee County at 414-551-4288.

Rep. Jessie Rodriguez explores misconceptions about Republican Party

Rep. Jessie Rodriguez, R-Oak Creek, spoke to College Republicans Tuesday to discuss her work in the State Assembly and common misconceptions regarding minorities, women and those in poverty in the Republican Party.

Rodriguez is an immigrant from El Salvador who moved to Wisconsin from California as a child. She graduated from Marquette University and is currently working on solutions for education, children and poverty.

Rodriguez discussed the common belief that the Republican Party is anti-women and people of color, but Rodriguez said these misconceptions are false and are just used as headlines for the media.
