What goes around, comes around. Oh, the truth the words speak!
When the shoe is on the other foot, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court Justice can’t handle it.
Conservative Republican Justices have controlled Wisconsin’s Supreme Court for 15 years. The majority recently switched. The Democrats now in power.
On their second day in power, the Democratic majority fired the director of the State’s court system. It was within their power to do so.
Conservative Chief Justice Annette Ziegler called it a “raw exercise of overreaching power.”
Makes me laugh. The conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court has been “brutal” over the years. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, they can’t take it!
David Brooks’ Opinion Piece in the New York times yesterday: What If We’re The Bad Guys Here?
Brooks wrote re Trump: “Why is this guy still potentially viable, after all he’s done?”
Brooks answers by quoting North Carolina political scientist Thomas B. Edsall: “Republicans see the world changing around them uncomfortably fast, and they want to slow it down, maybe even take a step backward. But if you are a person of color, a woman who values gender equality or an L.G.B.T. person, would you want to go back to 1963. I doubt it.”
Brooks followed up with: “The Trumpers are reactionary bigots and authoritarians. Many Republicans support Trump no matter what…..because at the end of the day he’s still the bigot in chief, the embodiment of their resentments, and that’s what matters to them most.”
Key West had a no tipping law in 1936. Tipping was considered un-American.
Try it today! All hell would break lose! Tipping is an inherent respectable part of wage earning in all parts of the U.S.
Our reefs are dying. Extremely hot water the cause. Nothing to joke about. However a Citizens’ Voice comment this morning makes practical though not realistic sense: “Maybe someone could tow one of those big icebergs down here and anchor it over the reef.”
Dinner last night at Brady’s with Cindy and Steve Thompson. Steve and I wanted the lasagna special which is normally featured wednesdays.
Not last night. No lasagna. I must have been the only one eating it. The cook said no more for a while. Ergo the specialty last night was chicken parmigiana. As good as the lasagna was!
Enjoy your day!
