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.”
