Hip hop, hijackers and other turkeys

Time to catch up with the hip hoppers in Madison city government. A task force on “Equity in Music and Entertainment” composed of (what else is new?) — advocates — proposed taxpayer subsidies to rescue a form of music known as hip hop, of which gangsta rap is a constituent. That includes a $60,000-a-year administrator of hip hop.

As with everything in Madison these days, the task force fingered Racism as “the Number One barrier to maintain diverse entertainment catering to patrons of color.” 

The Council kicked this hot potato up to its Executive Committee where, one hopes, it will languish due to an attack of common sense brought on by impending council elections. Why form these task forces in the first place?

Which reminds us: the Council still has not adopted a single one of the 146 recommendations proffered by the policy boutique paid $372,000 of taxpayer money to ferret out evidence of racism in the Madison police department. A report that came out 11 months ago.

But Madison city government is digging its hole even deeper. Its MPD policy & procedure review ad hoc committee sent out letters to 22 individuals and groups soliciting still more comment. And got nothing back. So the deadline has been extended to December 20. Use Paula’s form to weigh in. They need to hear from someone other than the usual social justice warriors.

As Paula Fitzsimmons observes, “the list of recipients, much like the Committee, is mostly comprised of those who are, how shall I put this, Not crazy about cops.” Like Freedom Inc., Young Gifted & Black, Justified Anger, State Rep. Chris Taylor, etc. (Full list at sidebar.)

Can we get one in Madison?

Cover me, I’m picking up our little one at the daycare!

Sign of the time: Madison Police now offer useful tips on How to Avoid Car Jacking. 

We hate to say it, but they missed one tip: Don’t park your kids at a Madison daycare center. (After two cars were jacked on the west side last week in front of daycare centers. With deadly firearms.)

What to do after an attack:

If you are threatened with a weapon, give up your car – your life is worth more than it is. Try to note as many physical characteristics of the carjacker as possible so that you can provide a detailed report when you call the police. But as always, avoiding a potentially dangerous situation is the best way to prevent an attack. Always carry a cell phone with you when you exit your vehicle and use your best judgment when driving and parking in unfamiliar areas.

France goes Green, red in the face, and yellow: Is anyone getting this? France’s “gilets jaunes” are protesting a fuel tax President Macron imposed to fight global warming. Motorists in France already pay $4 in taxes for every $2 of gasoline. 

Social media we are following: “Segway Boy Exposed.”

Beware the Ashwaubenon turkey. It’s coming for you.

    A few weeks after President Macron lectured President Trump and the Brexiteers on the joys of globalism he looks around and asks ‘Why is Paris burning?’
    The Deplorables in France wear les gilets jaune. Their government has 57% of the national economy. Governance is increasingly outsourced to EU bureaucrats in Brussels. Immigration is dictated by Angela Merkel.
    No growth, no babies, no faith, no nationalists, no France. (Very similar to California whose time is coming for largely similar reasons.)
    The Deplorables outside Paris, London and Washington DC are getting angrier.
    President Trump got China to drop US auto tariffs from 40 down to 15%.
    See the difference?

    Word on the street is that you are not woke and some even define you as un-woke.

    What’s wrong with hip hop.
    There is never enough hip hop, sheesh!

    We note that Rahm proposes a THIRTY or FORTY cent/gallon tax increase in Illinois. Too late! I already have the Yellow Jacket franchise for that State.

    As to MPD’s thoughts on picking up the kid at daycare: why NOT both parents, one with the 9mm drawn and in the “low ready” position, the other fetching and securing the tots?


  4. Batman says:

    Freedom Inc. and their ilk have openly declared their loathing of people with fair skin.
    So does it follow that this hate group secretly cheers when whitey is abused.


  5. Bill Everley says:

    But how about the news that (David) Pecker conspired with The Donald to pay off the pelts, bury their stories, and, get this, freely admits that it was done with the full knowledge of the Trump Campaign? Orange is the new orange!


    • richard lesiak says:

      Trump just got Peckered. Stone, with the cheap hair-plugs, will be the next to flip. Cohen gets 3 years. The cherry on top is the newly elected AG in NY said she is going after the whole trump family. It’s like the Ellen show at Xmas…you get indicted, you get indicted, everyone will get indicted.

    Macron is simply the latest arrogant globalist to get his comeuppance. If Trump gets hounded out of office, the liberal elites in this country had better double their security details. The days when they can impose taxes on the rest of us in order to signal their support for the climate change hoax are over. Speaking of said hoax, has anyone noticed that the climate change discourse has now devolved into a contest to see which group of “scientists” or government agencies can come up with the most apocalyptic scenario? They should really transfer their talents to Hollywood, which can’t seem to produce enough movies on that theme.

      Time to toss a virgin in the volcano and only pay taxes we personally agree with. What do all those academic eggheads know anyway, eh professor?

        ”What do all those academic eggheads know anyway”

        Enough to secularly preach cultural Marxism to intellectually malleable idiots in order to create useful Cannon Fodder while successfully pulling off’n the Big Gubmint teat.

        Pretty sweet gig for Those Who Can’t, am I right?

      • Gary l. Kriewald says:

        One thing the eggheads know all too well is which side their bread is buttered on. Despite what the left tells us on a daily basis, scientists are not by definition paragons of virtue incapable of anything but “objective’ inquiry. Like every other academic I’ve ever met, they know what kind of “research” will rake in the big bucks and which won’t. If you believe that the Chicken Littles of climate change have no stake in the conclusions they reach (and relentlessly publicize), I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.. There’s no other field of study that so consistently buries and/or diminishes any research that might point away from the apocalyptic scenarios so beloved by the media and the partisan organizations that fund their research. I’d like to see a study that catalogs the many “scientific’ predictions of the end of the world and the human race the CLs have made over the last couple of decades–you know, the ones that didn’t quite pan out. There should be enough data to fill a hefty volume–assuming you could find anyone willing to publish it.

          (Can’t remember where this was excerpted, but it’s not mine)

          And what happened to the “fragile planet” that was supposedly on the knife’s edge of permanent destruction?

          *Global supplies of clean water have increased. In 1990, 76% of the world’s population had reasonable access to drinking water. By 2010 that had increased to 89%, according to a report from the Food and Agricultural Organization at the U.N.

          *The per-capita supply of fish worldwide climbed roughly 30% over those years.

          *World hunger and poverty have dropped dramatically. The share of the global population that is undernourished declined more than 40% between 1990 and 2015, U.N. data show. The share of the global population living in abject poverty went down by more than 35%.

          *Land has gotten far more productive, not less. In fact, the share of land devoted to agriculture hasn’t budged since 1990, according to the U.N. report. Think about that for a minute: We are able to feed 34% more people, and feed them better than ever, using the same amount of land!

          *In the U.S. at least, air pollution is down since 1992 for every single pollutant the EPA measures. And our CO2 emissions are down since the mid-1990s, thanks not to government regulations, but because of the fracking innovation.

          *That massive deforestation predicted by scientists? The amount of forest land in the world declined by just 3% from 1990 to 2010, the U.N. report says. (In the U.S., it’s increased.)

          *How about the warning that we were cutting off new medicines by destroying species? The pharmaceutical industry is in a golden age of innovation, with more than 5,000 new treatments in the production pipeline.

          It gets worse.

          The Old Testament prophets delivered their predictions of doom at the behest of God. Today’s prophets of doom deliver theirs at the behest of Science, which aspires to fill the great gaping void where God used to be. Of course, the left accepts their predictions enthusiastically because, well, if there’s one source of infallibility in our secular culture, it’s got to be Science, unsullied and objective. And what about those left-wing universities, foundations, associations, etc. that fund the scientists? Only a flat-earther, know-nothing yahoo would ask such a question.

      “No, wrong as usual”

      We both know that misses the mark by a WIDE margin.

      ”my pleonastic pal.”

      Sent me to the dictionary for that one, but we both know that’s where youse found it, am I right?

    Highly credentialed geniuses, towering expertise, peer reviewed brilliance, beloved of the Left like Jonathon Gruber, architect of ObamaCare, Paul Krugman who certified the wonderfulness of Enron’s business model and the certainty of the Depression that would follow President Trump’s election. Jon Corzine who Joe Biden said he and Barack called when they needed an explanation of the US economy.
