Fiscal TAR success! Wisconsin gives citIzens internet access to its checkbook

As this writer's regular readers are aware, this writer has pressed for Fiscal TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) since the Summer of 2009. Wright County Minnesota refused to adequately respond to this writer's request for County financial information. Said information is supposed to be a matter of public record. This request was prompted by large Property Tax increases in a short few years. The limited and poorly formatted fiscal information the County finally provided was only after prolonged and repeated requests as well as a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) demand. My full requests have yet to be provided. What happened to Government Transparency?

Among the snotty explanations County Apparatchiks provided was they did not have to provide the data in a usable format. This writer's request that Wright County just post their budget, actual revenues and actual expenditures on the internet was met with recalcatrant laughter. The Minnesota State Auditor, Attorney General as well as State and Federal Legislators were unwilling or unable to help.

In response to thus situation, in 2010 and 2012 this writer proposed the following Caucus Resolutions and Legislation in Minnesota:

All Minnesota Municipalities (Counties, Cities, Schools, etc.) are required to post their budgets and actual expenditures and revenues on the internet In terms understandable by the average high school graduate with no aggregates greater than $100.00.
That said records shall be maintained on the internet for 10 years and be easily downloadable to fully functioning spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel
June 2011 - Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, Pro-Wresting & the US 2 Party System 2/2 (see Heading "Financial Reform"

I suggested they should post it all on the internet in a format the lay person could understand but that has not happened either.

Jan 2011 - TEA PARTY - Planning the 2nd Enlightenment Part 2b of 3 (see heading, "Rise of Modern Feudalism")
I ask each of my fellow citizens to ask all State Senator, Representative and Gubernatorial Candidates to support legislation requiring all municipal governments from this point forward to post and maintain on the internet the last 5 years of their budgets and actual expenditures. I call for this information posted in laymans terms with no aggregated amounts exceeding $100 dollars.

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
