From my email inbox comes news of the upcoming C.A.R.E. Clinic on August 9 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics will be holding its next C.A.R.E. (Communities Are Responding Everyday) Clinic in Madison, WI on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at the Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center.
The focus of the clinic is to remember that the 50,000 people in Dane County without insurance are actual people who continue to make decisions between seeing a doctor and putting food on the table, and that these people feel left behind more now than ever because so many people think that the problem is solved.
Our hope with the Madison C.A.R.E. Clinic is that individuals in communities throughout not only Wisconsin but across the nation will support their local Free and Charitable clinics and will consider volunteering to give back to their neighbors in need. Our goal in Madison, as always, is for the medically underserved to not only get the access to health care they need but to connect these individuals with important community resources, follow up care and health education, while also giving them something a little bit more, HOPE.
Here is some basic information on the Madison Clinic:
- Both medical and non-medical volunteers are needed for this event. For more information on the clinic and to register to volunteer please visit: http://www.cvent.com/d/l4qxvf.
- Patients can call 800-340-1301 to schedule an appointment.

Earlier this week, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s reelection campaign sent out a mailer touting Clarke’s law enforcement credentials, and as James Rowen of The Political Environment noted, it’s a very curious mailer.
Sheriff Clarke’s efforts to tout his crime fighting credentials are laughable, especially considering how little the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office has done under Sheriff David Clarke to fight crime in Milwaukee County. After all, who can forget this statistic:
Crimes reported in Milwaukee County in 2009-2010: 106,936
Crimes reported by the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office in 2009: 19
And how can anyone forget how Sheriff David Clarke once tried to help a drunk driver with a suspended license get back on the road after said drunk driver had driven off the road. Thankfully, one of Sheriff Clarke’s deputies was able to properly assess the situation and take appropriate action, despite Sheriff Clarke’s incompetence.
While Sheriff David Clarke talks tough about fighting crime in Milwaukee County, the reality is he’s a lawman on paper only. If Milwaukee County’s residents want a Sheriff who will really fight crime, they should vote for Lieutenant Chris Moews.
Meanwhile in Arizona…
After being warned by local sheriff Paul Babeau that buses of immigrant kids were being transported into town, a large protest was organized to block the them. To be fair, another group also showed up to welcome the kids.
Republican state legislator and congressional candidate Adam Kwasman rushed in to take advantage of some free publicity by giving interviews until the approaching bus was spotted. He quickly moved with the crowd to confront the bus, which the sheriff allowed to pass. In another interview Mr. Kwasman spoke of the fear he saw in those children’s eyes as they passed, according to AZFamily.

There have been a hundred things I would like to have written about the past few months. I have an overview of the 19th CD that I started in April that never got finished…and it’s too dated to post now. I was so looking forward to covering that race, the attorney general’s race and of course the gubernatorial contest!!!
But real life has just plum inserted itself in my conscious hours to the point I haven’t been able to do those things…or many of the other things that I do for recreation or relaxation.
I didn’t disappear (yet) and hope to be more visible come fall. I really miss being a sarcastic overbearing blogger…really.
(I forgot…there are some captivating races in the house races in the 1st, 4th and 5th that need attention).
For the past six years the various left and progressive groups have been screaming about the obstructionists in the House of Representatives aided and abetted by Speaker John Boehner. Accused of hewing the company line, being co-opted by the tea party jihad, or out and out racism, the right has done everything in its power to obstruct the agenda of President Barack Obama. And the left wing pundits and bloggers and activists (myself included) have complained ad infinitum. Where’s the co-operation, the bipartisan bills, the working across the aisle we wail? nada, zilch, nothing except more votes to overturn Obamacare or get to the bottom of Benghazi.
Now in one little interview County Board Chair Marina Dimitrijevic says that she as able to work with then County Executive Scott Walker…and the sound of bodices ripping and buttons flying from the shirts of lefties county wide are deafening…the veins bulging from their foreheads or pulsing at their collars brings an unaccustomed red hue to their faces and are visible on Google earth.
One of their supposed one collaborated with the enemy!
So…working with the opposition is good? or it’s bad? Make up your minds!
If this is the point of political discourse nowadays, lets get to some real heavy lifting: what do you think of Marvel’s decision to make THOR a female?
