Go Brewers! — Oh, is this Brewer bandwagon a fun ride! Guessing productivity suffered Monday in the upper Midwest but, here in Wisconsin, morale got a major boost. Beating the Cubs for the title? Priceless. Jesus Aguilar sent the right kind of message Sunday in Milwaukee: The Cubs should be very afraid. He was correct. We may be facing them in the divisional series. (Brewers? You mean, as in “beer.”)
Confederate Rest — Tonight, the Madison Common Council wants to send the wrong kind of message: it is more virtuous than the one-armed veterans of the Union cause in the Civil War. And Madison residents have been victimized by the astoundingly racist message on the stone:
Erected in loving memory by United Daughters of Confederacy
to Alice Whiting Waterman and her boys.
The addled alders will resume its mission to uproot the first permanent gravestone to mark 140 POWs buried at Confederate Rest. Meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Your Squire will be four square, there. (More here.)
Democrat(ic) quotas — Want to know what happens when Democrats get unfettered control? Visit Chicago for the murder, stay for the autopsy. Or move to California (net migration is going the opposite direction). Gov. Jerry Brown and his Democrat(ic) state legislature is now enacting laws for the express purpose of “sending a message.”
The power of the State of California as expressed in actionable state statutes is being wielded for the express purpose of virtue signaling.
It is now illegal in in that state for your board of directors to be all male (or identify as male, in today’s parlance). It is the ultimate triumph of identity politics, the golden state’s salvo against privileged white men like Brett Kavanaugh.
Even Gov. Moonbeam knows the law is unconstitutional. But so what? A message needs to be sent!
“I don’t minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation,” Brown wrote in a signing statement. “Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C. — and beyond — make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message.”
This triumph of the nanny state requires at least one female director on each board of California-based corporations by the end of next year. Companies would need up to three female directors by the end of 2021, depending on the number of board seats. Because, you know, stockholders would never elect a qualified woman director without the heavy hand of the state. Except that 83% of corporations listed on the Russell 3000 Index already have women directors.
Governor Brown’s “potential flaws” run smack into constitutional guarantees of freedom of association and equal protection under the law. Hey, if you like quotas in college admissions …
(More here.) It is the ultimate in identity politics boofing (newly added to the Manor’s lexicon). Coming next, legislative mandates that half the state legislators and half a state’s congressional delegation be female?
Please help me, I think I am black — Which is why a man in Washington state wants to be black, despite being “visually caucasian.” Says one of those mail-in DNA tests found he is 4% black and 6% native American. He wants some of that sweaty government money it showers on minority races. (More here.)
Spray paint — The party of tolerance sent a message to those retrograde Republicans by vandalizing the Republican party hdq in Rockford, Illinois, over the weekend. The building was spray-painted with the words “rape” and “shame.” A man has been arrested. Oh, did your Squire presume guilt without a fair hearing? Sorry. Must admit, the vandal may be a socialist, not a Democrat. (More here.)
But no, Brett Kavanaugh’s home was NOT vandalized. That is FAKE NEWS!
One presumes that home is under police guard.
If you’re a victim you have an excuse for your life being sub standard.
If you are serving restorative justice you don’t have to teach or keep a disciplined class room.
If you are solving global warming you don’t have to actually govern.
I perceive a pattern.
If your a millionaire you don’t have to pay taxes.
Just ask Fred and the Trump kids! They are the REAL deplorables.
”If your (sic) a millionaire you don’t have to pay taxes.”
DEADBEATS don’t pay taxes, though me & the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch do.
BS gotch(not his real name). I pay taxes out of every check, at the end of every year. That’s the money that supports your deadbeat lifestyle of sitting around sucking of the Social Security Disability Income. Your the deadbeat. You suck up all the services you can and bitch about every penny your forced to pay. K.C. paid $1 in four years. So they are your deadbeats. Am I right? Am I right Gotch? Am I right?
You will never be able to Insult me or belittle me into silence about your BS. NEVER.
“DEADBEATS don’t pay taxes, though me & the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch do.”
You’re admitting you’re deadbeats who pay taxes. We knew that.
“I pay taxes out of every check, at the end of every year.”
Was I referring to youse as a DEADBEAT; guilty conscience?
“You will never be able to Insult me or belittle me into silence about your BS. NEVER.”
Never tried to, nor would I; you’re (sic) posting does more to further the Righty cause than I could ever hope to do on my own.
The triumph of the nanny state in CA is only one of the toxic effects that can be traced directly to Affirmative Action laws enacted in the 1970s. When a government starts operating on the principle that race, gender, disability status, etc. are the only relevant factors in determining your societal worth, it’s only a matter of time before arbitrary quotas get imposed. And even when the perceived problem is solved, there’s no relief from the relentless propaganda that says women and minorities are in need of special help to “level the playing field” (a project that’s taking longer to complete than the Pyramids). Last year, women accounted for 56% of students enrolled in American colleges and universities, but don’t expect to hear cries of alarm from academics. Once you’ve achieved “disadvantaged” status, you’ll never be expected to relinquish that privilege.
Speaking of DNA tests, has Pocahontas Warren ever been asked to take one to determine the extent of her alleged Native American heritage?
“If you’re a victim you have an excuse for your life being sub standard”
That sure worked for trump in states like WV and much of the south.
“If you are solving global warming you don’t have to actually govern”.
And that makes no sense whatsoever.
If you listen to trump and his gaggle of grifters they are the biggest victims in history.
Evidently still no mirrors in the midget’s house.

no mirrors in the batcave? “Alfred; call gotch, we’re being victimized again. Head to the 4th level of our multi-deck backyards. MULTI-DECK4 ALERT. MULTI-DECK4 ALERT. Lock the gates of our gated compound. Alert the neighborhood watch. Make sure the doorbell cameras are on. “
Most of victim hood is optional but satisfying like masturbation though, it too is ultimately pointless.
It is said that man invented self pity because some men need it.
ABob, envy of people with more money suggests you perceive yourself in relative poverty. Which, like victim hood is also relatively optional.
Nah, I’m grateful for what we have, modest as it is. I just resent people who cheat on taxes, thereby cheating all of us, to accumulate wealth. I find them deplorable. You should, too.
I doubt that. Gratitude, like satisfaction and honest, up close generosity could find very little room in a person so angry, vituperative and willing to do evil for a hoped for “greater good.”
“I just resent people who cheat on taxes”
Only someone runnin’ scared posts a lulu like that, but youse’ve proven times too numerous to mention that yer immune to reality and don’t inhabit a fact-based Universe.
Not only that, but the reason for yer self-loathing now becomes abundantly, albeit painfully, clear; why?
“Turns out Republicans have the bigger names—Jack Abramoff, Randy “Duke” Cunningham—but DEMOCRATS HAVE THE MOST TAX SCANDALS BY A MARGIN OF 18 TO 7.” (bolds/caps mine)
Holy DEADBEAT @AnonyBob, Lefties are OVER 100 % more likely to be the type of scum-bag tax cheats you resent? So it would appear!
It gets worse.
“Republicans and Tea Partiers tend to shout the loudest when it comes to tax reform, and THEY’RE ALSO THE MOST LAW-ABIDING–WHEN IT COMES TO PAYING THEIR TAXES, ANYWAY.” (bolds/caps mine)
So, what, Gootch? You LIKE people that cheat on their taxes?
Your data’s 7 1/2 years old. Dismissed. But you still manage to babble, babble, babble.
My-o-My, yer tone has gotten mighty testy since I laid bare yer rather telling grossly hypocritical sliding scale for #MeToo accusers. Curious, that, am I right?
“You LIKE people that cheat on their taxes?”
THAT’S yer takeaway? Small wonder you been getting lambasted by @madisonexpat, et al, tough love?
“Your data’s 7 1/2 years old. Dismissed.”
In yer words; SO WHAT? Dispute it or STFU!
Actually, and I don’t think I’m alone on this, I prefer youse STFU, so The Gotch’ll handle this.
PARADE OF TAX CHEATS JUST HAPPENS TO BE LED BY dEMOCRATS
Read it and weep!
So, what, Gootch?
So what, Gootch?
See the difference?
Try showing me some proof from a reputable source, not one of your many rwnj rags.
Again (Daschle) @AnonyBob’s (Geithner) gross (Rangel) hypocrisy (McCaskill) seethes (Fat Albert) at (Melissa Harris-Perry) being (Toure’) confronted (Sharpton) with (Soros) Inconvenient (Buffett) Truth.
Forget about Lefties leading the known Universe as tax cheats, youse got bigger things to tend.
What might those be?
A SWORN statement from an ex-boyfriend of the truth-challenged Fibber Ford.
Take a read, it ain’t pretty (can youse say FELONY PERJURY)
All I could find to link to was bedrock Conservative (heh!!!) MSN.COM.
Good GAWD it must SUCK to be a Lefty, am I right?
Here’s the letter. I suggest youse secure a crate of tisses…check that…secure a Freakin’ Pallet of crates before linking.
Let us know what youse think.
Correct me if I’m wrong on this, but Madison is run by liberals/progressives or whatever invective you want to attach today on this increasingly muddled document. Chicago’s problems date back centuries at this point, and many of them have to do with corruption and graft that have nothing to do with left-right politics, but personal greed. Madison’s left, on the other hand, appears to be running a very smooth city, your occasional outbursts about crime (it’s down, again) notwithstanding. It would be amusing to see a conservative mayor (when are you running, Sir Blogsalot?) try to continue that trend without dismantling liberal programs that work.
“continue that trend without dismantling liberal programs that work.”
Youse mean like the Lefty Programs that’ve eliminated homelessness, rectified the Achievement Gap, ended habitual teen car thefts, and reduced shots fired and murders incidents to zero?
Thanks for clearing THAT up!
Would that include cops in schools? (Asking for a friend.)
