Fond du Lac´s Don Gorske
eats milestone 30,000th Big Mac

Fon du Lac Reporter, by Sharon Roznik

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 5/7/2018 10:47:12 PM

Don Gorske gobbled down his 30,000th Big Mac Friday at the same McDonald’s where he got his first taste of the beefed-up burger in 1972. “At the time it was the only McDonald’s in town and I had just gotten my driver’s license,” Gorske said, just prior to setting a new world record for “Most Big Macs consumed.” The popular fast-food chain promoted the Big Mac enthusiast´s monumental ingestion, held at 3 p.m. under the “golden arches” on Military Road and attended by McDonald´s Fox Valley´s franchise owner D.W. Rause. “Don has a passion for Big Macs like no other," Rause said. "He

In lib-logic (to paraphrase Rush), this proves that eating Big Macs prevents heart attacks.

I went to live with my Mother in Sacramento, Ca. in 1959. Sometime in 1961, my little sister came home from school hollering about a new burger joint that had opened called McDonald’s. “Could we go? They said it was delicious!”

So, that Saturday Mother packed us kids up in her maroon 1954 Plymouth Belvedere and away we went- clear across town! There it was. A little indoor-type burger stand. I was absolutely amazed. All they served were the stripped down 25 cent burgers and the best darned French fries anyone had ever tasted and colas and their trademark “mucous milkshakes”- which us kids were totally enraptured with. I could not get enough of the burgers. I had come from St. Louis and was a huge White Castle fan (we had a WC just two blocks from our house- 5 cent sliders- no kidding!). But, McDonalds totally captured me from WC- I never thought a burger could be better! Mother even liked the food. Yes, we were just one class above trailer trash- but, it was all it was promised to be. And we could afford it!!

I dreamed about McDonald’s when I was in the Army. Coming back from Vietnam, the first big lit advertising sign I saw was the Golden Arches just outside of Travis AFB and it made me realize, I was really home at last.

But, McDonalds is no more. Not the good McDonalds. Now they are all about some kind of twisted up health food bar burger joint Coffee house salad shop. “Fast Food” there does not exist! I have not been inside a McDonald’s or at their “second window” in more than 12 years! Yeah- I really miss McDonald’s. It was a great little burger joint once.

I had to do the math. 652 per year or 1.79 per day for 46 years. That´s a lot of beef.

I really like what´s on a Big Mac. I think it´s pretty darn good, my complaint is the meat. I just don´t like the way it´s cooked. I highly respect #2, and can see how going from sliders to McD´s is a bit of an up grade, but I´d wish the patties were more like Burger King.
The fries are awesome and I really like the way the Chicken Nuggets are breaded and cooked ( MUCH better than BK)
So scoot over white trash, save me the occasional seat.

Romney calls for ‘disturbing’

Washington Post, by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 6/19/2018 12:53:19     Post Reply
Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

“There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party,” John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.” Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party’s pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. It could be comatose. Consider: that GOP was dedicated to free trade, open borders, amnesty and using U.S. power to punish aggressors and “end tyranny in our world.” That GOP set out to create a new world order where dictatorships were threatened with “regime change,” and democratic capitalism was the new

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert will join U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at Mitt Romney´s annual political retreat this week. The invitation-only event that started as a fundraiser during Romney´s 2012 presidential bid will also feature business and health care leaders, including Intermountain Healthcare President and CEO Marc Harrison. About 250 people, including big-money GOP donors, are expected to attend what´s known as the Experts and Enthusiasts Summit, set to start Thursday and end Saturday at the Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley.

What’s Next for Conservatism

Conservatives tend to be skeptical of joining great political movements because they tend to be skeptical of both politics and movements that are great. They prefer the little platoon, the shire, which they know to be safe—or at least probably safer than what lies beyond. Not all politics may be local, but all politics that isn’t local tends toward the totalitarian, however far short of it it may actually fall. That sounds almost like a philosophy of government—though not a government that any American alive today has experienced. But times can change, and they have with the election of Donald Trump.

Salt Lake City - Mitt Romney, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah, is set to host his annual gathering of top Republicans, wealthy political donors and powerful business leaders. The guest list at the three-day, invitation-only event beginning Thursday in Park City, Utah, is largely under wraps, but Gov. Gary Herbert has it on his schedule. U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is addressing business leaders in the area at a separate event over the weekend, is also expected to attend the summit. The gathering at Stein Eriksen Lodge has traditionally been a summit of Romney allies closed to the public.

Antifa and Patriot Prayer

Dueling demonstrations faced off Sunday in downtown Portland, marking the first large street protest of the spring. The rallies drew hundreds to a pair of parks near City Hall, including right-wing Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson of Vancouver, his supporters and counter-protesters, including black-clad antifascists, known as antifa. The rallies began peacefully and escalated with shoving, a small bonfire on the antifa side of the gatherings and punches thrown. Portland police stepped in to quell the fights and asked people to stay away from the area as Patriot Prayer supporters started marching. Portland police said officers with the Federal Protective Service and a

If only conservatives were kinder, gentler and more "with it." Who could stop us? Certainly not Democrats. So the secret to conservative political success today is to act more like liberals, and they will like us more, too. Anyone who has spent more than ten minutes with any Republican functionary attached to some aspiring Republican office-holder knows the pitch: Trump? He has no right to be here.

Like the McCarthy Era, but with
No Communist Threat to Support It
National Review, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 6/2/2018 8:38:49     Post Reply
How many divisions does the Deep State have? During the so-called McCarthy era, a single question cut across all partisan and philosophical lines: Were you on Senator Joe McCarthy’s side or not? McCarthy’s conspiratorial, bullying, blunderbuss anti-Communism and “red-baiting” was either defensible or it wasn’t. Remarkably, for many on the right, the question of whether you were “with” McCarthy almost completely crowded out the question of whether or not you were right-wing or left-wing, Democrat or Republican, or even where you stood on the question of Communism itself. The pressing issue was whether McCarthy went too far

Republican Utah Senate hopeful Mitt Romney said in a new interview that he does not see President Trump as a good “role model” for his grandchildren. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts and the GOP´s presidential nominee in 2012, made the comment during an interview with NBC News on Monday, ahead of a Senate primary debate. “I don’t think that I would point to the president as a role model for my grandkids on the basis of his personal style,” Romney said. “He has departed in some cases from the truth and has attacked in a way that I think is

Is Saudi Arabia’s 32-Year-Old

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the 32-year-old media-savvy leader of the oil kingdom, has been unnaturally quiet recently, so much so that some in the Middle East media couldn’t help but wonder if he is dead. Bin Salman hasn’t been seen in the public eye since his meeting with the Spanish royal family in on April 12. On April 21, heavy gunfire was heard near a royal palace in Riyadh, the kingdom’s capital. Although Saudi Arabia’s state news agency claimed it was a security force shooting down a toy drone that had gotten too close to the royal property, some wondered if the gunfire was in fact a coup led by Saudi

A day after her great-great uncle Jack Johnson was pardoned, Linda Haywood, returned to his gravesite Friday with her daughter and the Rev.

We have walked the last mile and you are the victor.”

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights.

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email
