When Republicans in Wisconsin meet for their annual convention next month, one of the topics on the agenda will be whether the party supports seceding from the United States if necessary.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Wisconsin Republican Party’s Resolutions Committee voted earlier this month in favor of a proposal that says the state GOP “supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin’s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede.”

Fringe Republicans managed to defeat more moderate members of the party who were hoping to reject the proposal at the April 5 meeting. The proposal was adopted on a split vote with only a few changes.

Delegates will get the final vote on whether the so-called “state sovereignty” resolution is included in the party platform at the convention in Milwaukee on May 2-4.

" Duke Investors Urged to Reject Directors on Coal-Ash
By Jim Polson Apr 14, 2014 10:02 AM GMT-1000

Duke Energy Corp.(DUK) shareholders should vote against four board members for lapses that led to a February coal-ash spill that fouled a North Carolina River, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System and New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer said.

The four directors -- G. Alex Bernhardt Sr., James B. Hyler Jr., James T. Rhodes and Carlos Saladrigas --“have failed to fulfill their obligations of risk oversight as members of a committee overseeing health, safety, and environmental compliance at the company,” Anne Simpson, senior portfolio manager for Calpers, and Stringer wrote in a letter filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission today.

About 39,000 tons of ash spilled from a pond at a shuttered coal-fired power plant near Eden, North Carolina, on Feb. 2, triggering investigations and subpoenas. The incident, the third-largest coal-ash spill in the U.S., coated 70 miles (113 kilometers) of the Dan River, according to the letter.

A federal grand jury is probing the state’s oversight of the company’s 33 coal-ash ponds in North Carolina. Governor Pat McCrory, a former Duke employee, has asked the company to remove coal from riverbanks to prevent a recurrence.

The state regulator, the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources, last month cited Duke for violating pollution permits when it pumped 61 million gallons of coal-ash pond wastewater into a tributary of the Cape Fear River. The state is also seeking to revive lawsuits filed last year over pollution from ponds at two plants. Duke has denied the permit violations.
‘Deafening Silence’

Calpers and the New York City pension funds own a combined 3.9 million shares in Duke. The Charlotte, North Carolina-based company had no immediate comment on the letter.

“The board’s silence has been deafening in the lead up to and aftermath of the Dan River spill,” Stringer, a Democrat, wrote in an e-mail.“ We intend to hold accountable those directors most responsible for these costly oversight failures.”

The annual meeting is scheduled for May 1. Bernhardt has been on the board for 23 years and Rhodes for 12. Saladrigas and Tyler, who both joined as part of Duke’s acquisition of Progress Energy Inc., have been board members for 13 and 6 years, respectively...."

You can't pay Mexico to buy land in a state, you moron.
When Nevada became a state, the land within the boundaries of the state of Nevada belong to the state of Nevada or the existing land private land owners.
The defense of any argument the government has concerning ownership of land in any state is written in the agreement between that state and the government as conditions for admitting that state as a state into the union.
But, let's examine your logic. You're saying the government owns the strip in Las Vegas, right?
Do you listen to yourself?
You're sssoooooo ignorant.

Who hasn't heard ad nauseam that our state was admitted to the Union on October 31, 1864 because its silver and gold production were needed to help finance the Civil War. Anyone who has attended Nevada's schools has heard the story from a teacher or read it in a textbook. It's a wonderful tale, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Our state's history has too often been embellished and transposed into myth, and the claim of Nevada's mineral wealth triggering statehood ranks as one of the most pervasive fictional stories in the annuals of the Silver State. The reasons for Nevada's statehood were political, not economic. Earlier writers were so caught up in romanticizing Nevada's role in the Civil War they decided to re-invent history.

FACT: Nevada Territory was a federal territory, a part of the Union, and President Abraham Lincoln appointed Governor James Warren Nye, a former Police Commissioner in New York City, to ensure that it stayed that way. Governor Nye put down any demonstration in support of the Confederacy, and there were some. The federal government bought much of Nevada's silver and gold bullion to support its currency. What federal taxes there were at the time that could be effectively collected went into Union coffers. Therefore, Nevada's creation as a TERRITORY on March 2, 1861 by the United States Congress ensured that its riches would help the Union and not the Confederate cause.

Nevada was formed on Union Land. Where did Nevada pay the Union for the land the Union clearly owned by treaty with Mexico? Eh dummy? And the Union retained ownership of much of it. This has been upheld in the courts, so you lose.

----------

You can now resume your nutcase protestations of Federal Authority. It was so funny when you claimed to be a veteran. You've proven yourself to be a traitor and anarchist with contempt for both Gov't and the Courts, as you so ably demonstrated today. You cite the Constitution, but refuse to accept it's Constitutionally granted authorities.

Not only the same agency, the same BATF agent in charge, Larry Potts. After he tried to assassinate the Randy Weaver family in Idaho, they moved him to Texas so he could invent fraudulent evidence there, too, and mount another illegal assault.
Then, Bill Clinton nominates that mass murderer to be the number two man in the FBI, in charge of the domestic agenda.
That's what the Democrats have planned for us.
There's your paranoid schizophrenia at work, Dweeb.

You laud criminals, hate the Gov't, want to dismantle the Courts, we understand. You're a certified unAmerican nut job. At least you dropped your pretense of being a veteran.

Funny how a communist lover like you defends Putin for invading Ukraine yet claims your own Gov't has no authority to keep cattle off their land without permission.

Seek help, you're way off the reservation.
