If you can’t beat ‘em, lie to them!
Progressives never say, “That’s it. Our work here is done.” No, the nation, their state and city are in permanent crisis mode, demanding massive spending, court-packing, protest marches, and ever-escalating “demands.” Which is why our Progressive … acquaintances reflexively raise their fists, as if responding to Dr. Pavlov’s command. (Remember their logo for the Act 10 insurrection?) Somehow, their raised fist beats our arsenal of AR-15s and bear spray. This ain’t rock, paper, scissors!
Still, they keep getting elected here in the Emerald City. Besides cheating, our strategy for taking back city hall, the schools, and Dane County is to out-do Madame Brenda, Ald. Benford and the other crazies with our own misleading campaign promises for:
A more Progressive Madison WI:
• Teach restorative drivers ed at the juvenile detention center. If kids are going to steal cars, at least they could drive them safely.
• Install drop boxes for spent firearm cartridges at strategic street corners. Keep Madison neat!
• Heated benches on roadway median strips for the comfort of panhandlers. Bonus idea: ATM machines.
• Alarm pulls next to school fire alarms to alert Ali Muldrow when implicit bias breaks out.
• Signal your virtue with ready-made plywood at Menard’s and Home Depot pre-painted with trite racial justice slogans and caricatures of police as pigs.
• Offer Nikole Hannah-Jones, principal author of 1619 Project, the job as the next UW-Madison chancellor.
• Officially recognize the “residents” of the Dane County Jail as a Madison affordable housing neighborhood with the right to object to residential in-fill proposals.
• Retrofit the ever-spinning revolving doors at the courthouse to generate clean, renewable electricity.
• Place Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion kiosks on Capitol Square and at Hilldale, East Towne and West Towne. Free tote bags emblazoned with the word “GUILTY!”
• Surgically attach permanent Covid face masks for the virtuous at drive-thru clinics.
• Levy a 2 percent surcharge on property taxpayers afflicted with white privilege.
• Signs at the city limits: “Welcome to Madison, named after Oscar Madison of the Odd Couple, not that slave owner.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: We would suggest decriminalizing crime, but they’ve already done that.
Picnic point is one big phallic symbol and rape adjacent.
Why hasn’t the University brought in bulldozers??? I am beyond disgusted with the phallus advocating Chancellor.
re: heated benches …. at least UW is finally divesting itself of the WHITE supremacist benches:
1.) “Living wage” for protesters. (wage for being alive)
2.) “Equity Branch.” (fourth branch of government to oversee the other three)
3.) Recognition for the “Confederate Rest” ward. (all residents faithfully voted for Democrat candidates, and, no doubt, some still do)
4.) Replace one stall in every women’s restroom with a urinal. (this is TRULY woke, and I’m sure, will be appreciated by all)

Excellent suggestions, both, but, (#4.) has an immediate and very uncomfortable impact, while being so-o-o virtuous.
Did Pete get milk yet, inquiring mind here wants to know, wasn’t chocolate I hope.
The State Capitol is a symbol of white female supremacy (big white woman boob, just look at it!)
White supremacy and matriarchy gotta go.
Either paint it Black or tear it down. We cannot wait any longer for this injustice to be addressed!

AdamC: “..big white woman boob”, you said. Sounds like you’ve never been weaned.
Incidentally, matriarchy has never been influential in the American culture, certainly not overtly.
BTW: Do you prefer Black tits?
Tell me again how our society is run by all white men.
Schools and universities are dominated by matriarchy.
Madison is mostly matriarchy. Look around.
2 years of hysteria is prima facie evidence of the matriarchy at work. Safety > Liberty and all that.
But tell me again how white males run Madison schools, Madison police, the University, City Hall, etc.
I mean, duhhhhhhh.
I did not make the blanket statement that society is “run by all white men.” Those are words you attempted to put in my mouth.
You have not proven that the power structure locally and elsewhere is a matriarchy. WI politics is currently dominated by the likes of Vos, Gableman and Ron Johnson, white men in service to that old white fart Donald Trump who still influences the Republican party.
I mean, duhhhhh!
BTW, Adam, Jay Rothman has been selected by the Board of Regents to be president of the UW system. Tony Evers is governor, last time I looked.
I would not call this matriarchy.
Also, the UW Board of Regents is majority male.
The Madison, WI police chief is male.
And gee-whiz, the mayor of Madison, WI is a girl. Women do occasionally win elections.
Ahhh dear Blaska, nobody can ever accuse you of not having a singularly great imagination. Kudos to pushing that WHITE envelope even further. You make me feel oh-so-much-more clever every time I read your columns.

Nicely done David.
All your suggestions are only slight exaggerations of the realm of self-parody, where Madison progressives reside.
Lowering the age for concealed carry to 18 so some high schoolers can bring in their guns for “protection”. Oh wait; that was the gop. Sorry.

FALSE SMEAR WARNING!!!
No one no matter what their age is can take a concealed firearm into a school in the State of Wisconsin, period, end of discussion.
Only a blithering idiot, a political hack internet troll or an inebriated old fool would write that nonsensical comment; I suppose it could be all three.

If that’s the case then why the new legislation? State the law that says anyone can enter a school armed.

Knowing your complete lack of logic and your pattern of commentary, this inquiry from you is clearly sealioning but I’m going to answer it anyway just to see what you do next; choose wisely.
The law is because 18 year old’s are considered an “adult” in our society and all adults should have the same rights and responsibilities unless those rights are legally stripped of them on an individual basis in a court of law.
In my opinion the “18 year old is an adult” policy should be extended to the purchase and consumption of alcohol too. Either 18 year old’s are considered adults in ALL aspects of our society or they aren’t an adult for any aspects of our society. The double standards being applied to those between the age of 18 and 21 are borderline constitutionality. I would have absolutely no problem with ALL the laws changing and making the age of an adult anywhere between 16 and 21 but it must be 100% across the board for all aspects of our society and that would including voting rights.
I would be in favor of an amendment to the United States Constitution that permanently defines the age that a person is an adult across the board and protects their rights as such. That said; after being around people of all ages for many years, I personally would choose 20 years old as the age a person becomes an adult.
Now, choose wisely.
This is just gop BS. If Evers signs it they will be screaming about putting guns in schools. If he doesn’t they will be screaming about gun rights and freedom. If I were Evers I would sign it and then let Vos deal with the police complaints, parents bitching, teachers raging and the bodies piling up.

Who’s this “they” you speak of?
Creating an environment where children now NEED to provide their own “protection”?
