Re-imagine there’s no courage

It’s easy if you try!

Like any blowhard congress … person, Blaska reserve the right to revise and extend his remarks — those being published in today’s Wisconsin State Journal.

If Madison’s next mayor is chosen on the volume of virtue-signaling, Woke buzz words, challenger Gloria Reyes has taken the early lead. 

In Ms. Reyes’ op ed of Sunday 11-27-22, G.L.O.R.I.A. (GLO-REE-AH!) promises to “reimagine public safety.” How? With “a collaborative approach,” is how! She would incorporate “best practices” through “an equity lens” to “uplift communities” so they don’t suffer “unintended consequences.” She will be “innovative,” “inclusive,” and “equitable.” 

Order of the Snowflake

What she will not be is courageous. In the absence of real leadership, Madison has been spinning its wheels for years on two of our most pressing public safety issues. Reyes will not venture an opinion on our community’s need for more humane jail space despite a $180 million price tag or whether Madison police should wear body cameras. But neither will our equally timorous incumbent mayor, who has managed alienate police AND social justice warriors.

Lacking courage, Gloria Reyes cowers. As president of the Madison school board Gloria Reyes caved, surrendered, stood down, and capitulated to the vandals demanding school resource police officers — black, brown, and female — be expelled from our public high schools. She allowed superintendent Jennifer Cheatham to railroad Mr. Rob out of Whitehorse middle school, a pattern that led to this semester’s three-month defenestration of principal Jeffrey Copeland at Sennett — both for trying to restore order in the classroom.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Incumbent mayor Satya Rhodes Conway is already “reimagining” public safety. Some of us still remember what actual public safety looked like.

You might say I’m a dreamer.
Am I the only one?

    With shots fired almost every night, you don’t hear of all of them as the police don’t release every shots fired incident. A stabbing.

    The catch and release program we now operate in Madison and Dane County which puts dangerous criminals back out on our streets.

    Little thugs that are allowed to become big thugs with no consequences to bad behavior in our schools.

    Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that many people have come to think of the Beltline as the Indy 500, as they are passing me up at 90-100 miles an hour as I am doing 60+ miles an hour. Go any slower and get run over!

    Yeah, I’d say we need people with courage to recognize the problems and come up with solutions to them.

    Seriously; as catastrophically counterproductive, as developmentally destructive, as profligately purposeless, and as laughably Low Brow as the Woke Buzz Word approach is, the self-aware will ask:
    Which…um…demographic actively seeks it like stink seeks $#!t?

    And how mind-numbingly STOOPID do the handlers of the Woke Buzz Word approach deem their targeted audience?

    On a more positive note, the Bi-Polar bares NOW possess a PERFECT RECORD over the last six (6) games.

    Come to think of it, they (heh!) OWN a PERFECT RECORD against the 13 Time World Champion Green Bay Packers both this season and over the LAST_NINE_GAMES.

    What’s not to like about that, am I right?

    Anywho…somewhere……a Blogge Idiot TROLT gently weeps……………

    One more thing:

    AFTER FURTHER REVIEW, THE midgets of the midway STILL SUCK

    People rightly mock linkedin users for this type of profile.

    Congratulations to Mayor SRC on another 4 years.

    C’mon Blaska; ignore this important back story at your peril:

    Has Toriana Pettaway sufficiently learned to count to the extent that SHE_MAY_BE_ON_THE_MAYORAL_BALLOT?

    While math being RAYcist is a given, the ability to add isn’t the only challenge hampering the talented Ms. Pettaway; proper English usage appears to have eluded her…um…skill set, as well.

    In a 01/04/2019 email to the clerk’s office and local media: “I am being told I can’t run for Mayor […] Do (sic) to being Short (sic) two signatures on the Nomination (sic) Sheets (sic). I am reviewing them now. Always some White Supremacy BS.” (bolds/italics mine)

    Must we now include being cluelessly unaware of one’s tenuous literacy to the far reaching effects of White Supremacy?
