and irascible head groundskeeper at the Policy Werkes is David Blaska, former has-been, 33-year card-carrying RINO, recovering know-it-all journalist. Holds the record for banishment on the NextDoor social media app. Aging gracelessly at Stately Blaska Manor on the SW side of Madison WI, the Emerald City.

Why Mark Pocan, D-Madison, voted against the debt limit deal
“Forget the debt ceiling. The Biden-McCarthy compromise is a big deal because it is a spending compromise. An important provision of the deal is that if, by the end of the year, the House and Senate haven’t passed 12 appropriations bills (the long-forgotten way budgeting is supposed to work), all discretionary spending would become subject to an automatic 1% cut. This is what is known as a “sequester.” A sequester is to Democrats what garlic is to vampires. …
“The truth today is this: The modern Democratic Party — the party of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the House Squad — won’t cut or slow spending for any existing federal program, ever. Now, Mr. McCarthy’s negotiators have managed to create a wedge against the left’s massive opposition to spending reforms.”

It is to laugh
“Clarence Thomas, resign or be impeached”

Question of the Day
What ‘Deep State’?
Rachael Rollins, the US attorney for Massachusetts, leaked sensitive Justice Department information to a journalist in an effort to influence a local election, lied to investigators and improperly attended a fundraiser with Jill Biden, according to two critical federal reports released Wednesday. (More here.)
How can anyone take them seriously?
Charles C.W. Cooke asks at National Review.
“Rachel Maddow made a career out of spreading lunatic conspiracy theories on MSNBC, as did Chris Hayes and Nicolle Wallace (who is still, today, rejecting all evidence that contradicts her fever dream). Adam Schiff lied relentlessly from his official perch on the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and is now gearing up to run for the Senate.”

This gun for buy back
(No warranties implied or expressed) The poorly paid, non-union indentured servants here at Stately Blaska Manor are going to cash in next month. Pick up some major coin. A benjamin or two. They’re headed unlocked and unloaded for the Alliant … Continue reading
A good man with a gun
saves lives! A Florida jury is considering whether to strap down the school shooter in Parkland and inject him with poison. Notoriously, the school resource police officer ran away from danger as 17 died. In Uvalde TX, grieving parents are … Continue reading
Permission to defend myself, sir?
If police cannot. It’s spooky that the Independence Day shooter at Highland Park drove all the way up from that north Chicago suburb to Madison WI looking for potential targets. Brings it closer to home. Our little parade in Orchard … Continue reading

Sure, ‘Something must be done!’ But what?
