I moved to Ripon about 12 years ago and I"m sorry I did. I hate Wisconsin, period. I have never had to deal with so much pettiness and stupidity in my life. It's not like I have no friends here, I do. It's not "the people", it's the people in charge, the people that have had some control of my welfare and best interest. They care about neither. From supervisors at work, to incompetent doctors at Affinity and Affinity itself. To the stupidity of the people in charge of this town. Yes Ripon is possibly the epicenter of stupidity in Wisconsin. Maybe it has something to do with it being arguably, the birthplace of the republican party. Way too many dumbed down right-wing Americans around here and I hesitate even calling right-wingers, Americans. They know not what Democracy is about.

The Republican Party that was born in Ripon was founded by PROGRESSIVES. Just an FYI. Ripon--the city--was founded by socialists.

Ripon went to Obama in 2008.(By a margin of 500 or maybe even 1,000 votes.)

This town is about as diverse as a small town can get (I'm talking diversity of ideas). If you want the epicenter of stupidity in Wisconsin, it's not this town.(you must not have traveled in Wisconsin very much?)

So after 12 years of misery, posting your pain on the web is the answer?

Yes and soon I will be leaving. It's not pain by the way it's anger. Would you like to know more of what has made me angry?

Ok Got me there. lol Maybe there is a town that's more stupid than Ripon, I hope I don't find it. I'm not really a democrat either but it would be nice if more repubs were progressive and not brainwashed morons. The true meaning of what republicans stood for has been forgotten by these neo-con republicans.

This is my version of "going postal" I'm by no means crazy, just extremely angry. I can vent here and tell the truth and give my opinion. If I told everything that has happened to me and some things I know that happened, you would be a bit angry also.

Well, how would you like your civil rights violated by a health care company and it caused great loss. Or to be told by a company that your starting pay is less than they promised, quite a bit less. Or a misdiagnosis by three MD's, that later I proved them wrong and they refused to help. Leading to more loss. I have to pay child support for a child that is not mine because I can't afford a divorce and that will make it harder. Giving a company months notice in advance that I'm leaving to join the Army and on my return same company won't rehire me because I left with out notice. Banks changing SS#'s and the time it takes to prove it. Health ins company changing gender on you and refusing to pay due to their own mistake. All this plus other things, some of them personal and that I chalk up as $hit happens. Would you be sort of angry if all this happened to you in a relatively short period of time. And I know being mad at this are is not just the problem, it's the whole crazy system. It's broken. But there is a whole lot more human error around here that I have not experienced anywhere else. Plus some things certain public servants around here have gotten away with that just makes me mad. Oh and not to forget a supervisor that slandered me to other businesses and prevented me from being employed. The worst part is no one will do anything about any of it. Time to run, maybe more later.

WOW, pretty sure the city or the state were NOT responsible for your misfortunes. I was not aware that an employer was obligated to hold a job if an employee decided to JOIN the Army. I thought only if you were in the reserves and were called to duty. Isn't JOINING the Army the same as taking a new job and leaving the other one behind? I admit not to know this system well, so please correct me if I am mistaken

I did not expect them to hold the job. What I said was, I gave them notice when I left, when I came back to apply again their records said I left without giving notice and that's just not true. That was the same company a plant manager got caught cheating on his wife in the plant on the clock. He's still there. Same dude fired a bunch of people because they were getting sick from the fumes and new it and complained, they shut down some of the ventilation system to save money. An officer was caught doing the same thing and he's still an officer. I'm sorry, I have higher standards then that. And it's not the fault of the "state" or "city" it's the incompetent people in it. And Wisconsin sure does have a plethora of incompetent people.

TO THE EDITOR:

Please consider running a public service announcement dismissing the Topix Ripon Forums as a waste of time because, lets face it, this forum really sucks.

I hate Ripon, because of Lee and Jed Stellmacher, they took my laptop computer from me and took my belongings and have keep them from me for over 4 years now, if you have any information please contact me @ polyureapro@hotmail.com

This is why they keep changing company names and locations trying to hide from me, they also are doing the same thing to Jason the gentalment from Extream Auto Body per Jason

Thank you
