So I just heard on the news michelle obama is visiting Watertown high school on Thursday to promote "drinking more water" . How is this going to mess up traffic around the area and on 94? I can just sense she's going to make my whole county a freaking mess.

The TV report said the event wasn't to be open to the public.

So it seems like only the party faithful can worship

I am glad I moved to another park of the county years ago.

I was working on the north side of Eau Claire when Bush came through years ago. In the construction zone we had to keep clear of bridges, stay a few hundred feet from the roadway, and trucks had to be on a side road not the shoulder. Secret service then checked under every single orange barrel, putting a piece of tape over the bottom edge and onto the asphalt, as some sort of seal to see if they were moved. They also put this on all the manhole lids.

My condolences to anyone that is affected by her prescence there. I wish she would figure it out that she's not wanted here.

Really, Watertown to profess the greatness of water. Going to stop by Appleton on the way back to talk up the Red Delicious? Egg Harbor for Eggs?

One serious question I do have is how much does it cost the county to have an unwanted passerby like her come through and speak?

no way is it that cheap. secret service will pull out all the stops for her too.
then her travel time, her aides, friends, backup motorcade in case hers fails, local LEO over time.
its in the millions of dollars wasted.

I wouldn't doubt it's 7 figures. Background checks on anyone who is going to be close to MO, motorcade, local police. This event most likely took weeks of planning.

The 2013 budget for the Secret Service was 1.6 Billion, that's 4.3 million per day. I bet it's pretty hard to actualize what the total cost of an excursion is.

Well let's all at least agree that regardless the exact number, it is a lot of money for a service that shouldn't even be provided. If a politician wants protection, they should be legally required to follow all the same bullshit rules and restrictions as any normal citizen and carry a gun to provdie for their own safety, no matter who they are, what their job title, or where they go.

Secret service is a lot of waste money for a lot of wastes of oxygen.

Your argument is fallacious.

We, by violating the principal of equal protection under the law, elevate these people to a place of privilege. Do you know the origin of that word? It means "private law." You want both ways that which you cannot thusly have. If they have to follow the laws that we do, then they cannot be afforded special protections, whether physical or legal.

It is a binary system: choose if you want a zero or a one, because both can not exist in the same bit.

First Wookie is completely irrelevant.

When it gets behind a cause ..... so what?
