We so can breathe!
June 2? Dane County/Madison Public Health says we can take off our masks two weeks from today (05-19-21)? Are you kidding !!!
Uh, unh. Blaska is done being Mr. Nice Guy (for the 415th time). Already got the Moderna good goo coursing through our veins! (Chocolate mint flavor.) You don’t want my business, Mr. Madison Shopkeeper Restaurateur, Barkeep? Just say so. Blaska is so immune from the Wuhan woo woo that he cures people just by walking into a room.
Buy stock in placard printshops — The U.S. Supreme Court will rule a year from now on a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks — a direct assault on the poorly reasoned Roe v. Wade 1973. “Only 29% of Americans think that abortion should generally be allowed after the first three months of pregnancy.”
“I do know beyond doubt that the political and cultural environment will verge on the hysterical,” says attorney David French. Bet on it.
Know what The Nation magazine calls us “pro-life” people? “Forced-birth activists.”
Trump’s bitter enders — That election recount in Maricopa County AZ is over. It found Al Gore beat Dubya! Just kidding, but the county board of supervisors blasted fellow Republicans for pushing additional audits of the 2020 election results as “conspiracy theorists and grifters.” (The 2020 election is the Grift that Keeps On Grifting.)
Phoenix AZ county’s top election official, Stephen Richer (a Republican), called new claims of irregularities from former President Donald Trump “unhinged.”
GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia recently likened the chaos on January 6 to a typical day at the Capitol, with the rioters acting like visitors on a “normal tourist visit.” Then why was he photographed barricading the door on the House floor to stop the attackers? — The Dispatch. (Or maybe it was Nancy come-a knockin’.)
Why is New York losing a congressional seat? In New York City, shootings and homicides rose by 97% and 44%, respectively, in 2020. Felony assaults are up 25%. Yet seven of the eight candidates running in the Democratic primary for Manhattan district attorney have pledged to cut the police budget or prosecute fewer suspects. The New York Times endorsed Kathryn Garcia for mayor who will address the city’s crime wave by “reforming the New York Police Department,” which “begins with speeding up and strengthening the disciplinary process” for officers. — The essential Jason Riley, Wall St. Journal.
The Werkes predicts NYC voters will nominate Brooklyn Borough president Eric Adams, a former cop, in the June 22 Democrat(ic) primary.
Why is Idaho gaining a House seat? Because the state has banned critical race theory in its public schools. — National Review.
The Kenosha Effect: Rioting after the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha last August “resulted in increased support for Donald Trump. A similar level of rioting in say, Milwaukee, might’ve cost Joe Biden the state,” The Dispatch reports.
Cop haters say police voluntarily signed up for a job that could kill them. (89 died in the line of duty last year, nationally.) One could say the same about criminals.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: If Crime is a public health issue the county should put up billboards advising: “Resisting Arrest Is Dangerous to Your Health.”
Regardless of the June 2 date, there’ll be “super-spreader” events across Madison throughout the Memorial Day weekend.
Spreading good cheer and common sense that is.

Why Idaho is gaining a House seat?
Because Californians have been fleeing there for years. Naturally they are taking their political attitudes with them, just as they did to Colorado back in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The Boise area is already becoming more liberalized.
I just spent $50 on food and drinks for the wife and I last night in Iowa County. It was a bit of a drive but I refuse to spend money in Dane County (or any business, actually) that requires me to wear a mask going forward.

Driving across county lines for unmasking purposes, isn’t that a crime of some sort or other? If not, I’m surprised some Progressive hasn’t proposed it.

Does it really surprise anyone that Dane County would choose a date for ending the MM that guaranteed it would be the last in the state to do so (beating out Milwaukee by one day)? It must be sheer hell to abandon a prop that generated so many opportunities for virtue signaling.

Channel 3 had a piece including an interview with a psychologist on how ditching masks is going to be traumatic for some.
People are so fragile and weak these days. Plus the ugly ones are probably legitimately worried about their ugly faces being visible again. Those ones can keep wearing their masks, I say.

Leftyism isn’t only just a mental illness, … it’s cult, as well.
Mask Covidians are bitterly clinging to to their face diapers and their power over you.
Scratch a Lefty and a control-freak fascist is just dying to escape.
How Covid Put an End to Your Right to Due Process, 05/18/2021, by Daren A. Wiseley
First three paragraphs:
Over a year ago, the covid panic shook the world. We were told it would only be “15 days to flatten the curve” as businesses were locked down, “nonessential” employees were forced out of work (I’ve written about the myth of the nonessential employee here), masks were mandated, and individuals were not allowed to gather in groups or attend religious services.
In typical fashion, a government-mandated “temporary” usurpation of liberty turned into an indefinite infringement, as shown by the fact that we’re still under covid orders four hundred days later. Regardless of the length of time, the question remains that few have asked: What authority does the government have to lock us down and force us out of work?
This brings us to the issue of due process, which at minimum requires the right to appear in front of a judge and represent oneself to a jury of his peers before being stripped of essential liberty. Did the thousands of businesses closed and millions put out of work get this opportunity? Of course not. They were unilaterally stripped of their ability to put food on the table and pay their bills without any opportunity to object.
Yay ! 2-3 masks hung over gearshift lever (& still likely to forget to grab), 4-5 inna glovebox, and 1 or 2 in my pocket (so after some scary looks, I don’t hafta run back to the car in shame (or fear…).
That said, it will be a long time until June 2nd, especially since The Mandate coulda been lifted some weeks ago.
But let’s not look a gift Hippopotamus in the mouth -Mayor Satya duly protected us all, except from Covid related obesity. Misery loves company !
Mask “gun” in California. Maybe Dane County could adopt this, attach it to Tasers?
