Re: Kavanaugh isn't a rapist. I know. Let's Vote.

Why am I not surprised that an argument about Kavanaugh's fitness for the Supreme Court has devolved into an argument about whether or not a zygote is a person? The irony here is that the Republican religious base was unhappy with the selection of Kavanaugh. They feel sold out. They wanted Amy Barr...

The suspicion came to me last week, and I firmly believe it now.
The NFL has deliberately targeted Clay Matthews.

Re: Monroe street construction

I hope this hiatus isn't a casualty in disguise. Jac's Dining and Tap House posted on Facebook that they'd be closed today. No big deal, it's Father's Day, right? It went on to say they'd reopen in mid-July. I don't like the sound of that..... Jac's is still closed and I think it's permanent. Cat c...

Re: Kavanaugh isn't a rapist. I know. Let's Vote.

A second Kavanaugh accuser has emerged. Someone else who says he was a creep when he was younger. I'm willing to entertain the argument that people change. A 20 year-old Kavanaugh may have been kind of a creep, but a 50 year-old Kavanaugh may be an upstanding citizen, even if I disagree with him ve...

Re: Random thoughts

"You get more conservative as you get older" only worked for the ones who got richer as they aged. The real truth has always been "you get more selfish the more money you have." Having actually gotten older, I see it as one of those half true statements. While I'm not rich, I li...

Re: Shooting on City Bus

I agree. I don't have any great ideas and I don't want them in the prison system. I thought about having some being sentenced to going to the Metro bus barn and cleaning the buses at the end of the day. Kind of restorative justice. Or filling sandbags, since it's a good year for that. I don't know.....

Re: Milwaukee voucher Schools can't vouch for graduates

My guess is jman111. It is just a hunch. One disappears, the other appears, the moniker starts with j kind of hunch. Whatever. Other than for the pleasure of having a sense of the personalities around here being confirmed, I don't care very much.

Re: Floods

That's kind of at the heart of it isn't it? Maybe it won't happen again any time soon. Or maybe the same thing will happen in 2019....only 5 miles east.
We won't be ready for that. There really needs to be a sense of urgency that I don't think I'm seeing yet. We got lucky. And we're out of time.

He can't fire a teacher, but he can revoke an individual's teaching certificate which would have the same effect. He didn't, because at the time the incidents occurred, he didn't have the legal authority to revoke for those specific reasons. Of course the Republicans don't tell you that part, and wh...

Re: Shooting on City Bus

Apparently it really bothers you when an adolescent shows arrogance, and you believe the way to counter arrogance is harsh punishment. I think that just perpetuates the problem, and the whole cycle of opposition between kids and authority gets more entrenched. Kids' brains aren't fully developed an...

Re: The Back-up Beep

People wearing ear buds and staring at their phone screens wouldn't notice backup beeps anyway. We need backup flare guns. I think the piercing tone is designed to be heard through most obstructions, such as ear plugs many construction guys probably wear, hence our ability to hear them from blocks ...

Ok. So we're skipping over my post that shows data that is counter to Reimer's statement. Soglin would not have liked the info that was presented that stated lake levels are not the issue, flow rates are key. That was made abundantly clear. Right in line with this gentleman's opinion: https://madis...

I had that test once, but not for that problem...at least there wasn't any green stuff involved, just discomfort. I could swear they stuck a piece of glass in there, but maybe it only felt like it.
