KESHENA, WI (WTAQ) - Now that a big casino in Kenosha is out the window, a Menominee Indian lawmaker has a new idea to help the impoverished tribe -- growing marijuana.
Craig Corn tweeted Friday that it's time to move forward on what he calls a "new economic endeavor" and he declared ... "We are gonna fast track an effort to legalize marijuana."
Last year, the U.S. Justice Department told federal prosecutors not to prevent tribes from growing or selling pot on Indian lands, due mainly to the legalization of the drug in Colorado.
Susan Schaffer, Eau Claire County Clerk of Courts was the official who gave the orders, saying that the Wisconsin Statute on “Insufficient Jurors” allows them to forcibly pull people off the street to serve in juries.
So there has been quite a bit of water cooler conversation about the motives behind Riyadh's policy to keep the oil wells a pumpin'. Most foreign policy folks have been quick to blame middle eastern conflict, conflict between Russia and the west etc... Those who know anything about credit generated industrial finance, know that it is only a matter of time before an industry gets too big for its britches. What no one can deny is that the policy is being driven by Ali al Naimi, the Saudi oil Czar, and the rest of his ministry. I offer some speculation as to why:
Im ten years vested in my current pension which is Vanguard Mutual Funds. I have no control of that. I do control which portfolio(s) i put my money in listed as follows: lifestrategy growth, lifestrategy moderate growth, lifestrategy conservative growth, lifestrategy income, short term US treasury, index trust 500, growth index fund, internation stock, and vanguard prime money market. I lost a lot in 2008/2009 while in lifestrategy growth (which im still currently in). But with current events I am concerned with both the US market and the US dollar.
I have. More times than anybody deserves.
My brother in-law was a good man. Father of two. Cared about his two boys like you wouldn't believe.
Every day we would send one text or another to each other. He would send pictures of the boys playing soccer or winning some race. Or a picture of his wife sitting across the table from him, at a restaurant or bar, having a great time. He was fairly stoic. When he enjoyed himself, you could tell by a faint smile.
He was a sports fan. He didnt have sports in his life growing up. He learned to love them when he had kids.
I recently started a website while living in Shanghai, China.
Check out one of my first articles.

Of course the media hides this one. "A stray Bullet"
Media calling racist murder by black gang members a "stray bullet" accident instead of a hate crime. The black youths walked up to a white household and began shooting into the house. A 5 year old child sitting on her grandfathers lap was killed. Zero national media coverage and local media censorship of the actual event shocks. Police chief gets pissed...and lays out the FACTS in his city.

Students within the Eau Claire, Wis. area school district had a different Veterans Day today. Since the 1930s, local veterans came to the school and did a program that include a 21-gun salute. That didn’t take place, because of a disagreement over firearms.

...Over the past few decades, Walker’s home turf of metropolitan Milwaukee has developed into the most bitterly divided political ground in the country—“the most polarized part of a polarized state in a polarized nation,” as a recent series by Craig Gilbert in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel put it. Thanks to a quirk of twentieth-century history, the region encompasses a heavily Democratic and African American urban center, and suburbs that are far more uniformly white and Republican than those in any other Northern city, with a moat of resentment running between the two zones.
