MTASTATEMENTFORSTATEBILL 95 MILW CO CORPORATE TAKEOVER MADISON, WI – 4/24/2013 4/11/2013, revised 4/24/2013 Good afternoon, Madame Chair, Ladies and gentlemen. Move to Amend of S.E.WI is completely against state bill AB 95, because we believe in democracy. We feel you are having the so-called hearing about the bill in Madison, not Milwaukee, because you DON’T […]
One thing that is sorely lacking on our current Supreme Court is brainpower. Fallone’s intellectual depth would change the dynamic of the Supreme Court in a positive way. If Roggensack is re-elected, we will maintain the status quo, which is not beneficial for the average person coming before the court. One simply needs to follow […]
The attack on students in an elementary school in Newton, Conn. made the country stop and take notice of a long-term problem. There are too many guns in the hands of too many criminals. Like so many long-term issues, this one has been addressed with short-term fixes, small attempts at regulations, and a lot of […]
Grass Roots @ South Shore is pleased to be endorsing Ed Fallone for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The Capital Times carried a news article with a quote from the candidate that pretty […]

This is it. On June 5th, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will face off against Scott Walker in the governor’s recall election. This is our moment to reclaim Wisconsin.

The February meeting of Grass Roots @ South Shore spent a good deal of time this week on how large an impact the new voter registration and voter ID law will impact both the community at large, and voter groups in general. We have ascertained two important ideas. Voter registration is best done on a […]

I have been publishing articles of interest to the Grass Roots @ South Shore group, as well as informational postings for meeting times, agendas, and more. One of my postings was about the fact that we are working with the Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort (WAVE). This group is attempting to get enough signatures on petitions to support President Obama’s agenda on Gun Control.
Because it has been a busy electoral season, I know some people have forgotten to sign the petitions, or forgotten to follow through on the links. It is my greatest wish to get 50 signatures on the following three petitions so that I might print and send them to Senator Ron Johnson. I know our Democratic Senators and Congresspersons already support this agenda.
Here are the links:
Universal Background Checks
Ban Assault Style Weapons
Tougher Penalties for Gun Traffickers
After you have signed any or ALL THREE of these I would ask you to email this to your friends and relatives who support this agenda as well. The more voices heard, the more power in the wind!
I definitely look forward to your help and participation!
