John Patrick Hunter was a West Virginia native who took Bill Proxmire’s place as a reporter for The Capital Times here in Madison WI. On July 4, 1951, the young reporter circulated a petition on Madison’s Capitol Square — a word-for-word reprint of the preamble to the Declaration of Independence. Only one citizen of the 112 he approached dared sign it during the height of Joe McCarthy’s anti-communist crusade. (There were squirrels in the woods even if Tailgunner Joe couldn’t shoot straight.)
As a young reporter ourselves, we knew John 30 years later — a true iconoclast. Civil War buff, tea-drinking Unitarian (“We pray to Whom It May Concern”), an Eleanor Roosevelt, Americans for Democratic Action-style liberal — but fair-minded. John would pull out his driver’s license and point to the category of race, wherein he listed “Negro.” Thankfully, WI driver’s licenses no longer carry the category.
Which is the ultimate answer to the challenge to race-based college admissions now before the U.S. Supreme Court. Because if you bias in favor of one racial grouping, you discriminate against another less favored. We get it: To hell with white male heterosexuals! Now come those pushy Asian-American immigrants and their constant striving for success! Tell ’em to take a number!
In a 2003 case, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor speculated that racial preferences wouldn’t be needed in 25 years. The former justice did not account for the ascendance of critical race theory.
Anyone who knows anything about the men and women who run today’s universities, and how they believe racism is “systemic” in American life, knows that the schools will never stop using preferences.— Wall Street Journal.
Dane County’s abortion referendum is a lie
The advisory referendum asks: “Should Wisconsin Statute 940.04, which bans abortion at any stage of pregnancy without exception for rape, incest, or health of the patient, be repealed to ensure legal access to abortion care?” But Section (5)(a)(b)(c) of the statute permits abortion “to save the life of the mother.”
The same people who believe (or want to) that Trump tried to dissuade the January 6 insurrectionists have Glomped onto the canard that Paul Pelosi and the intruder were gay lovers engaged in a drunken spat. That tale originated in a website that also postulated that Nancy Pelosi was killed on January 6 (2021) and Democrats are now using a body double!
→ “Fog of Disinformation.” When you choose to believe one lie you are forced to believe all kinds of nonsense!
When the Head Groundskeeper countered that DePape told police he wanted to knee cap the Speaker, he gets accused of repeating “Libtard talking points.” But the prize goes to this guy:
Um, bring your own hammer, Ray Wiese. … Oh, and thank you for playing!
Ending race mongering will also get us away from worrying about this race being “over-represented” in incarceration and that race being “under-represented” in honors classes. Really, what does it tell us that black kids are doing poorly in school as opposed to white? That there’s a genetic black way to learn or that you have to listen to the teacher and accept extra help …
... and quit playing victim and start playing victor!
Blaska’s Bottom Line: U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-FL, proposes eliminating race questions from any federal questionnaire, including the U.S. Census. We so move! In the meantime, if asked your race, enter “Negro.” After all, what is Tiger Woods but golf player for the ages?!

FTR; Hunter was on The Gotch’s Crestwood newspaper route 55 years ago as we speak.
Not a handsome tipper, he…
A tip reflects the service provided.
Crestwood was a notoriously Lefty/Cheap (forgive the redundancy) enclave,
everyone got the same service; some tipped, some didn’t.
Ergo, not necessarily, Blogge Idiot TROLT, however, you’re (sic) every post confirms laughably crippling, generational stupidity.

Watched some law prof. from the U of VA on teevee tying himself in knots while trying to explain that while Supreme Court justices have been saying for decades that there should be a time limit for AA, there’s no point in the foreseeable future that the US would be “equitable” enough to end it (at least as far as he could tell). Can you think of any other bloated, expensive left-wing government boondoggle that just faded away because it was no longer needed? Why should AA be any different? Colleges and universities are still treating women as a “protected” (i.e., professional victim) class even though women students outnumber men–often by double digits–at most institutions of higher learning.
I don’t want to be linked to anything you do. Sober up and take control of your accounts. dumb-ass.
The Blogge Idiot TROLT linked to The Gotch’s WordPress account and got temporarily BANNED from this blogge for doing, yet is now trying to pretend it didn’t happen.
Too bad for the pitiably pathetic Blogge Idiot TROLT that the internet is forever!

NOTE TO DAVID BLASKA
I just noticed that Richard Lesiak has intentionally linked his name to Cornelius_Gotchberg’s Gravatar page. Just click on the “richard lesiak” name on his comment and see where it takes you. This is a more than interesting method of internet trolling that doesn’t require any regular typing, it’s signature significant of a internet stalker trying to provoke confrontation. This is a trolling* pattern I’ve seen before and based on the pattern I’ve seen before it’s my guess that richard lesiak is also the POS that created the false Cornelius_Gotchberg Facebook page and used some of Blaska’s photos on that page.
*TROLLING: verb Posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement.

How could someone who embodies everything which positively disgusts his(?) political affiliation (old, white, uneducated, Y-Chromosomal Unit**) and possess one whit of self-respect?
**It might identify as some…um…other of Lefty’s Heinz 57/58(?)
I find it interesting that You suddenly discovered my name on this account. Create a false facebook page? Blaska’s pictures? And YOU discoved all this? How? When? If you are setting me up then a better job will be required.

I tried to reach out to a number of legislators and my representative clerks about the lie put on the Dane County referendum, and everybody pointed out that they could not do anything as the Dane County Board controls the wording. So the old Twitter can block truths that they don’t like, but we are powerless to stop an outright lie on our ballot?

Hey Squire! You must be loving Joe Biden’s speech last night. He drew a straight line between, broken windows and a whipped up mob assaulting the brave, capable capitol police to the illegal alien Berkeley nudist activist who assaulted Paul Pelosi.
Loose talk on both sides encouraged slime to slither out from under their rocks in Kenosha and DC. Your turn.
A few bad apples defense eh?
It worked in Animal House.
