Well, that’s pretty much to the point.
A Menards spokesperson says the company no longer plans on adding a store in O’Fallon, Missouri because of the President’s economic policies.
“We are on schedule to open our new stores in O’Fallon, IL and St. Peters, MO this Spring, 2013. For O’Fallon, MO, I’m very sorry, but we are a family owned business and with the Obama Administration scaring the dickens out of all small businesses in the USA at present, we have decided not to risk expansion until things are more settled. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
While this is good, I suppose…
DOA Secretary Mike Huebsch pulled the proposed remodel of two executive residence kitchens from today’s Building Commission agenda.
Huebsch said in a statement the Wisconsin Executive Residence Foundation is in the process of raising private funds for the project. If that effort covers the full $478,700 cost, it will not need Building Commission approval.
...Why don’t we sell the whole thing and be done with it? If we feel the need, we can provide a housing stipend for the governor to maintain a place in Madison, but a mansion on prime property for the governor is an unnecessary expense.
But some Senate Democrats are trying to delay at least for one year the tax on medical device manufacturers, which will raise nearly $2 billion in new revenue in 2013 and $20 billion over the next seven years.
In a letter Monday, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C. and others asked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to work to postpone the medical device tax.
Both Klobuchar and Hagan voted for the ACA and Minnesota is home to one of the biggest medical device makers, Medtronic.
A delay in the tax could be part of the year-end fiscal package. “My guess that it would be part of bigger deal before the end of the year,” Klobuchar told NBC News Tuesday.
The Democrats calling for delay are emphasizing the need for medical device industry jobs.
“We’re focused on this because there’s a number of small start-up companies (which would be affected by the tax),” Klobuchar said. The medical device tax was set to raise $40 billion over 10 years “and then reduced in half without real negotiation about how it would affect jobs and the industry. So this one, above all to me, cries out for a change.”
In their heart, liberals know that Obamacare and its tax increases hurt the economy and kills jobs. They just voted for it anyway.
Kids… this is why the decision to get a tattoo shouldn’t be hastily made.
You may not remember Reuben Foster based on his first and last name.
Foster is better known as the recruit who committed to play for Auburn and famously tattooed the school logo on his arm before decommitting from the school earlier this month.
Foster has since opened his recruiting process back up and said he will keep the tattoo as a tribute to Ladarius Phillip, an Auburn player who was killed in a shooting over the summer.

West Bend high school students will soon have another opportunity to earn a letter for their varsity jackets.
West Bend School Board members unanimously approved the schools’ newest sport at its Monday evening meeting. Students will soon be able to compete in trapshooting in addition to more mainstream sports. “The kids would have to follow the athletic code. They could earn letters, things of that nature,” said Scott Stier, the West Bend West High School athletic director. “We see this as a unique opportunity to perhaps reach some student athletes that we otherwise may not be able to reach.”
According to Stier, the program would not cost the district a penny. Instead, students would pay an activities fee of $25, just as they would for bowling or skiing.
