Weird Hal: A constitutional republic or conservatism: pick one because you can't have both.

Conservatives are the enemy.

Ruin them all.



true

and the Dems are starting to pick up the Big Money virus in the same way the republicans got infected by it in the Reagan 80's.

Tomoko: There should be no such thing as one party controlling a supreme court, I don't think judges should even belong to a political party period. They are supposed to be fair and unbiased.



shushhh!

LeoffDaGrate: I live in Illinois, about 20 miles from the border.  You ask any Wisconsinite and they'll say "Illinois sucks" and visa-versa.  Up until the Trump era, it was a friendly rivalry, but lately it's just downright cruel.  Animosity and hatred of both states.  Illinois has strict stay at home procedures and Wisconsin... well, Wisconsin is what you just read. 

Yet Illinois has the 3rd worst Coronavirus stats in the nation, and Wisconsin, for now, seems to be about 1/8th of that.  Is Wisconsin just not keeping track of their stats or what?


Chicago is a way more dense city, with a massive airline hub that sees a lot of arrivals, bit more importantly, layovers than Milwaukee ever will.  It saw some of the earliest cases before our guard was up, and a few days of anticipation can make a huge difference with exponential growth.

dennysgod: What happen after the lock-down order was lifted in Wisconsin will be repeated across the other 49 States, residents will have learned nothing, run out en mass, maskless and gathering in crowded and by the end of July the death count in the US will have doubled all in the name of freedum.

I doubt whoever coined the phrase "Freedom isn't free" had this in mind.


Excellent.....blood for the Blood God will be achieved!

blatz514: LarryDan43: Take away Madison and parts of Milwaukee and it's Trumperland.

My city and Appleton lean pretty blue.  The Minority leader in Madison is from here.  That guy rocks!


Kimberly (Appleton area) here.  Appleton and some of it's suburbs lean blue. But you go five minutes out of town in any direction, and it gets red quickly.

Same just south of you in Oshkosh. Once you get into Algoma (the town, not the city), Vinland, etc. it's a lot more "but mah freedoms".
