If the reports of Banks not foreclosing to make them look better are true what might the real numbers be?



Wolfman Reports!




Once again the Wolfman reports on what he sees going on in the City of Racine

today he is looking at property values

His views are his own


Property Values For City of Racine 07/29/12 per Sales, Page 3C Racine Journal Times


Note that many of the properties are FORECLOSURES – so it is not a valid sale – it is “DISQUALIFIED” and so stated in the record. Most homes in Racine that  are foreclosed upon also have large equity loans attached – note that huge difference between the assessed value and the mortgage.  Some of these are strategic defaults. If you are stuck in a home that is seriously underwater it may be to your advantage to give the keys back to the Bank, or the Mortgage Note Holder. Consult a professional first before strategically defaulting.

Is the Ghost of Joseph Steffens Walking City Hall?





When I stared this Blog and TV Show (You can see show #1:

I never thought it be so interesting for me to do.

I pay attention to what is going on in the City (as I have found out many of you do).  So I thought I be just talking about the typical stuff you know RUSD, Crime, the silly games in Downtown Racine, that sort of thing. Just a way for me to vent.

Then a very strange thing happened I stated getting tips on what others saw going on or knew about.  As much I like like talking to others about this City a good 90% of the tips I received was well confused rumor or even made up stories.  One or two could I think be called planted, as a temptation to get me in legal hassles.

However, there was some information given to me that has checked out as more far more then the above.   As I am not surprised that the local “Media” did not pick them up at the time, these  stories  are very relevant today and IMHO helps to show my idea of the City of Racine being a City in ruins.

As I started looking into some of the possible leads turning into stories, I could not help but think is this City as corupt as this stories may lead you the reader to believe?

That will be up to each of you, all I can do is tell the stories and present my evidence.

I on my Root River Blog and talking about RootWorks kid around and talk about my dieing from a Car Bomb.  Maybe it will be from a robbery gone bad.

There is indeed a lot of interesting games going on.





Fritz Todt comes to Racine!


So let’s see what the news is about the City of Racine and jobs!

From the Journal Times July 25th, 2012:

“The City of Racine’s rate also eased from 13.3 percent in June 2011 to 12.7 percent last month. Racine had the state’s highest jobless rate among cities, just ahead of Beloit at 12.5 percent.

Jobless rates do not reflect underemployment or people who are working part-time but want full-time employment.

While the rates looked slightly better than last year’s, unemployment rates are greatly affected by changes in the labor force, defined as the number of people actively seeking work. From June 2011 to this June, the estimated number of jobs in Racine County declined by 600, from 77,200 to 76,600.”

Wow! What a great job by Mayor John Dickert! Mind you, it’s not his job to create jobs, that is up to businesses to do. Or it would be if it was not for our Dear Leader saying in the Racine paper and on the campaign trail that he would do so much to bring/create jobs. Programs such as the Neighborhood Stabilization Program to help the trades find work and help neighborhoods, I mean that’s the pitch he gave us.

Now, I will be looking into the numbers of jobs “created” and see what the claims are.  I do know this, the City of Racine has spent and is spending money on legal fees; such as Contractors suing over what they see as different treatment for different contractors and a former city worker suing John Dickert (not the Mayor but as the candidate) leading to the Mayor suing his own city. That case alone cost $100,000 if not more. We are still waiting to see who paid the settlement and what that was.

Over the years here under Mayor Dickert we have seen companies/ projects that wanted to come to Racine get turned away because they did not fit the micromanaged ideas from our city government.
Because of this we have a lot of empty space, from the Transit Center (KRM HA HA) to State St that like the Civic center just be bringing boom times.  Now just grassland or maybe better described as “weedland” with trash heaps.

The micromanaging is so bad, that something called Launch Box was created so small business can better navigate all the hurtles of starting a business in Racine. Might this be one of the reasons why so many go to Kenosha?

Racine In Ruins TV


The TV show for Racine in Ruins TV show Take a look!

The Death Spiral

The Death Spiral

The City of Racine is in a death spiral, this city is slowly moving towards a point of no return, if we are not already there.

See, with the numbers of property owners and businesses in a decline, soon the city will not be able to afford basic city services.

We are seeing some of this now as Mayor John “One phone call away from Obama” Dickert is “forced” to turn off city street lights. From the Journal Times dated January 25th 2012; “We don’t have the money. … If we leave the streetlights there, we need to find a way to fund it.” and of course he blames Walker “We wouldn’t be doing this if it was not for the cuts from the state. We have no choice,”

Of course the city has cut other things like the Transit and now the city voided contracts with the city unions, because we have no money.

I understand that there still many houses in foreclosure and more homes going into foreclosure. These are homes that are no longer paying into the city. I also understand that homes in tax arrears are at an all-time high.

We have a huge issue in this City with un/underemployment; it’s hard to pay your mortgage or taxes without a job or a low paying job.

Yet, as I see it, all the city is doing is, well nothing. With the “choice” of Ms. Hall for council with her crazy environmental ideas (she was and still may be a member of a group that wants the job killing Cap and Trade and the end of burning Coal this will also raise our bills ). Not going to be much help in welcoming business to Racine, far better at welcoming higher taxes/fees and more government.

So, more folks will leave the city even if it means walking away from a house. What chose do they have? The high price of gas that will go higher if folks like Alderman Hall get her way, maybe because she is a high paid lawyer she can afford say $3.50+ gal for gas. The rest of us, well we just need to call on the Obama!

This, of course, will force more out of work and more to leave. The City of Racine will continue to see homeowners and business leave. I would not be shocked to see even Case move out of the city. Why should they stay?

Who then will be here to pay for The City of Racine: the illegals, the crack-heads on the corners of the West 6th St area? At  lest we have good tasting water

Will William Mulhollan Zombie Rape Racine?

Ever think of what would happen, if you say, take a foolish mayor running a city deep in debit; so deep that the mayor voids union contracts and that street lights are removed. Combine this, with say, a company from The People’s Republic of China who is looking to “invest” in Wisconsin.Now say that this Mayor sees Lake Michigan as not a great resource for all, but a big pot of money for him to loot.  A body of water that gives Racine the best tasting water! (

What may happen? Well that’s easy! Let’s build a water bottling plant! After all, the PRC has such high standers on water.

Why worry?

Mayor John Dickert knows best for us all, silly rabbit! Next you’ll say that the Mayor sued his own city!

Oh and our Green Mayor might want to know this

He must love his law suits, if he tries this there will be some for sure.



Wolfman is in the House!



Guest Post by  Wolfman


Wolfman has posted on the JTIrregulars,  a site I link to. I recopy his post to further share his idea.

Wolfman know at on what is going on in Racine.


With his permission all views are his own.

I’ll have a lot to say – but I’ve also got a lot to share – and lots to post! Hope you have a lot of bandwidth!

FIRST – you must understand John Dickert – he is, in my honest opinion, a SOCIOPATH. It is plain and evident from his behavior – so you must understand what you are dealing with. These are the traits of a SOCIOPATH:

Profile of a Sociopath

This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.


Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Conventional appearance
Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim’s affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
Incapable of real human attachment to another
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Extreme narcissism and grandiose
May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

(The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare.)

NOTE: In the 1830’s this disorder was called “moral insanity.” By 1900 it was changed to “psychopathic personality.” More recently it has been termed “antisocial personality disorder” in the DSM-III and DSM-IV. Some critics have complained that, in the attempt to rely only on ‘objective’ criteria, the DSM has broadened the concept to include too many individuals. The APD category includes people who commit illegal, immoral or self-serving acts for a variety of reasons and are not necessarily psychopaths.


There is lots more on Sociopaths at the link provided. When you understand John as the Sociopath he is – you understand his actions – and why he MUST be removed from office. Of course, there is no will in Racine to do that!

“The problem with their game is that we don’t often play by their rules. Where we might occasionally tell a white lie, a psychopath’s lying is compulsive. Most of us experience some degree of guilt about lying, preventing us from exhibiting such behavior on a regular basis. “Psychopaths don’t discriminate who it is they lie to or cheat,” says Seto. “There’s no distinction between friend, family and sucker.”

No one wants to be the sucker, so how do we prevent ourselves from becoming close friends or getting into a relationship with a psychopath? It’s really almost impossible, say Seto and Willson. Unfortunately, laments Seto, one way is to become more suspicious and less trusting of others. Our tendency is to forgive when we catch a loved one in a lie. “Psychopaths play on this fact,” he says. “However, I’m certainly not advocating a world where if someone lies once or twice, you never speak to them again.” What you can do is look at how often someone lies and how they react when caught. Psychopaths will lie over and over again, and where other people would sincerely apologize, a psychopath may apologize but won’t stop.”

John is NOT your friend – he’s NO ONE”S FRIEND! You’re just a SUCKER TO CONQUER – in his eyes!


This is an EXACT description of failed real Estate Agent/Chronic Liar/Sociopath John Dickert:

“Psychopaths also tend to switch jobs as frequently as they switch partners, mainly because they don’t have the qualities to maintain a job for the long haul. Their performance is generally erratic, with chronic absences, misuse of company resources and failed commitments. Often they aren’t even qualified for the job and use fake credentials to get it. Seto talks of a patient who would get marketing jobs based on his image; he was a presentable and charming man who layered his conversations with educational and occupational references. But it became evident that the man hadn’t a clue what he was talking about, and was unable to hold down a job.”


John is not very bright, but he is a chronic liar, charming, and conniving. He found an opportunity – Mayor of Racine – and got in. He’s NO FOOL – HE IS A VERY DANGEROUS OPPPONENT! Notice he got the USEFUL IDIOTS on the Common Council to approve his contracts for Tom Friedel and for paying his legal bills. Those contracts MUST be honored now – no matter how rotten they are. The Common Council of Racine is comprised of SUCKERS, FOOLS , PETTY THIEVES and other possible SOCIOPATHS.

Remember, a SOCIOPATH wants to remain undetected – but their behaviors give them away – YES, THEY ARE LIKABLE – WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE DANGEROUS!

Racine will need to declare bankruptcy or be dissolved to end those contracts – which does seem likely. Here is an interesting article I saw on Patch the other day – it has to be a “Trial Balloon” to see if the people will accept a change in our form of government – which I think is needed:

Too Much Government For Good Collaboration?

A new study finds the metropolitan area between Milwaukee and Chicago has far more governmental units than larger — and more efficient — metropolitan areas worldwide.

With more than 2,100 separate government entities in the Chicago-Milwaukee metropolitan area, cooperation — and the efficiency that can bring — is difficult, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting.

The newspaper reported on a European think tank’s finding that the governmental sprawl of the Midwestern megalopolis is bigger than other, larger metropolitan areas worldwide. For example, in the greater London area, the Journal Sentinel reports, “a mere 34 government entities look after all the public safety, services, transportation, zoning and schools.” Toronto has 28, the newspaper reports, and Paris clocks in at more than 1,400. ”


So what’s John’s plan? The same as always – twist, manipulate and lie. He made promises to the public employees if they voted for him – and he fulfilled them. He doesn’t care about the reality of Racine’s finances or the desperate financial straits of many of the residents.


Which is why I advised – over a year ago – to get out, to get mobile – to rent, but no long term committments – get your skills together, get ready to GET OUT!

BUT, you’re underwater, you didn’t realize John was a Sociopath, you’re an eternal optimist, you shut your eyes to the truth – YOU’RE TRAPPED!

You’re in a City filled with Democrat welfare dependent and taxpayer funded dependent people. You’re a Sheep voting with 2 Wolves on what’s for dinner – YOU LOSE. You’ve just learned the trouble with Democracy when a certain segment can vote to increase their pay/benefits or entitlements – they’ll vote themselves raises until all the money is gone.

“At its genesis, the ideal of a socialist society takes hold among the people. Promises are made and the manifesto of entitlement, social fairness, obligation, and social equality infects the populace. The socialist ideal eventually goes viral, and the majority learns to game the system. Everyone is trying to live at the expense of everyone else. In the terminal phase, the failure of the system is disguised under a mountain of lies, hollow promises, and debts. When the stream of other people’s money runs out, the system collapses.”


So how will this play out?

Exactly like the street light fiasco.

NOW, don’t get me wrong – it is a good thing for the City to look at cutting costs – and many of the street lights were unnecessary. I want to encourage the City to look for cost savings like this – what we are looking at is how the people responded –

Yeah, there was some anger, and yes, certain lights being removed, a very few certain – seemed to be, ahem… POLITICALLY MOTIVATED. What was the effect? PEOPLE DEMANDED TO BE ALLOWED TO PAY EXTRA TO KEEP THEM ON.

So to when this is all done and over – The residents of the City of Racine will be demanding John increase fees/taxes, whatever is necessary to keep their services.

Were there other options? Sure – and there still are – but this is the plan – and it will pay out that way – it has every other time so far. It is a successful template John has used to get residents to pay his legal bills, give millions in “payback” to his supporters via unnecessary City Contracts, and continue to unabashedly pay outrageous salaries and benefits to some very incompetent and criminal minded people.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? Are you going to walk away from your home or business and abandon it?


What is happening in the City of Racine? Houses are being foreclosed on and abandoned. Thoughtful people are preparing now and trying to get out or prepare for the next inevitable tax/fee increase. Wise people got out of being a property owner in Racine when the market was at it’s peak – and made a killing!

Racine – more and more abandoned and boarded up houses. A population fleeing. Profit margins for businesses decreasing, costs increasing. Racine can’t compete. John doesn’t care – he just needs some more time and he’s set, along with Tom. They hope to be able to get away. They live high on the hog – and you’re footing the bill!

Would you open a business in Racine? Could you make it profitable? Why does Racine have to offer so many subsidies? What happens to your business when those subsidies go away? How many hours do you have to put in? What type of volume do you have to have? What about your debt load and credit? Can you sell 100 hotdogs a day at $1.00/ea and survive?

It’s punishing to be a business in Racine – so businesses are leaving, closing, unsaleable, or packing and leaving.

Why don’t you look at some of the failed Racine businesses HERE, and see how much they owe in taxes. Most will never pay up – they can’t – the people are just struggling to get by – and the list grows every day.

Hmmm. Mark Eikhorst still owes $20,007.07! Harbor Fest owes $63,100.53! See how many people and businesses you know!


Racine Railroad Products is moving to Mt. Pleasant where, It’s less taxing!

CGA just left Racine, and the empty building is for sale.

Renquist Design is moving to Hartland, where it’s less taxing!

The President of Butter Buds told John “NO!” to the last tax increase, and John passed the cost onto homeowners.

Racine Metal Fab is moving to Yorkville.

Empty business space and buildings is everywhere – FOR SALE is the new name of Racine.

Of course, the greedy fools at RUSD just raised their tax rate by 6.42% and Gateway is demanding another $500,000. John is proclaiming a $2M deficit and saying he doesn’t know what to do if he can’t raise taxes. What’s a business to do? Increase prices? Accept decreased profits? Slash employee wages/benefits? Give John an ultimatem – lower my taxes or I leave? Something’s got to give. Keep your eyes and ears peeled – watch for more business closings – or businesses moving out. That’s your clue! Racine is non-competetive, and John doesn’t care. Now is the opportunity of a lifetime for local Communities to fill their business parks with former Racine Companies.

What is important to remember is that businesses aren’t coming to Racine – they are fleeing. The tax base is shrinking – which means that those left not only have to shoulder any increases, but have the added burden of making up for losses. HOW’S THAT FEEL IN YOUR POCKETBOOK – RACINE? You’re the SUCKER – You’re John’s Bagholder – and he doesn’t give a damn!

So what’s a house worth in Racine today?


Let’s see what a house is worth today in Racine – sales price vs. assessed value; and who might own it. These will be taken from information published by the local shopper on page 3C. – Racine only.

NOTE: Many reported “sales” are foreclosures, and I believe “sale price” reflects the value of the mortgage – many of which had equity loans and other loans attached – note that the sales is deemed “DISQUALIFIED” in the official property record. Lying John – like all Lying’ Realtors really like to see these – for it distorts the true value and brings them more price suckers. A Realtor is a glorified thief in a suit and tie – in my eyes.

All information will come directly from the City of Racine Property Tax Records.

LOLOLOLOL. I think they need to drug-test the Asessor – MAN, I want some of what he is on…..

Are you worried yet?

Who’s paying and who’s not? Why are so many sales labeled DISQUALIFIED?


We can see the Banks are repossessing mortgage PLUS underwater houses left and right. WALK AWAY RACINE!

The only ones left in Racine are John’s BAGHOLDERS AND SUCKERS!

There is an economic earthquake coming – Racine – you have my symapthy, brave residents of Racine.


Yes we have no Bananas and Little Leadership with Email!





So its day 4 of the great crushing of the City of Racine City Unions.  Open acknowledgment that the City is at least 2 million in the Red.  The City has found itself in another law suit that will cost us more money we do not have.

So far that I can see little if anything is being done to find a way out of this mess it may be worse then we think.

The City Hall Bathroom project that stated at about 200K and is now over 300K .  NO one I have talked to has given me a ball park number of the final amount.

I have talk to others who tell me that a Subcontractor is having major issues in their part of the job.

So I sent this Yesterday:

I,  Request a status update with the timeline of completion and where all the subcontractors are in their progress on the City of Racine Bathroom constriction, if they will be on time and if not why
As well any Change Orders due to delay/errors by  subcontractors.
PDF of Documents if any would be fine. I understand that there may be a charge for copies. Please let me know if there may be any before hand.
See if there is an issue with one or more subcontractor should we not know that issue and who the Subcontractor may be?
IMHO every project underway or about to take place that can be stomped by the  City needs to be, until everyone knows how much debit the City is in and how are we going to fix it. Anything less is just foolish.

Unions Hit Back! Tuum hostes claude amicis propius

A number of City Unions struck back today by filing a lawsuit on the City of Racine

read the story here:

There is more coming. As I see it A unique group of forces are uniting for what I see as pay back to Mayor John Dickert.

IMHO a lot of folks who feel Mayor John Dickert done them wrong are coming together to see what can be done to so disrupt his administration (legally of course)  that he will resign or be so ineffective that he will not run again.

This group of folks come I think from not only Racine but I think Madison, Milwaukee, and include folks he thought he could trust.  Tuum hostes claude amicis propius

I expect to see:

This and other lawsuits both on the Union issue and more on the NSP.

Huge pressure put on the new members on the City Council to have them resign.  I expect Sanders Park to be brought up at Public Comments.  I expect Agenda 21 to come up  maybe even Copenhagen.

Groups that pander to the Good Old Boys to be infiltrated by Anti Mayor John Dickert folks and Pro Dickert agendas disrupted or brought to light.

Politics in Racine will become a  Blood sport
