Question for court knowledgeable people re Wisconsin hearing.

My expertise stops at the old Perry Mason in the 60's. I am very frustrated with WI supreme court conservative justices for being a pain for Tony Evers and making covid here much worse than it needed to be.

But the conservatives judges seem to be interrupting the lawyers a lot and are coming across as condenscendong. Just want some feedback before I email feedback as to the ridiculousness of the court once again. The one I sent to them last night let them know what a laughing stock they are and that they should not have used the WI Tavern league as a source to put all our lives at risk.

I may be biased...

Just throwing this out. Covid 19 will hit 10,000,000 cases in the USA today.

I for one will not forget, nor will I forgive.

My sisters response to Trumpists.

She is as liberal as anyone on DU. She is also very kind, and relocates insects and critters to the outside when she captures them. They have a bit of a mice problem at their cabin, and she will only deal with them humanely.

Now she's has admitted moving the mice into peoples yards with Trump signs. That may not be humane, but it made me giggle.

Recall effort on Governor Evers

From what I have read is being led by a woman from Burlington. That is a town of about 10,000 people. Burlington is also the town Robin Vos is from. There is some question as to the validity of the signatures she has gotten, based on local new reports. Maybe I am getting paranoid, but I don't believe in coincidences when it comes to Wisconsin Republicans.

Sorry, I don't know how to transfer sources on my Kindle. Google Misty Polewczynski if interested.

I have been catching single news stories on YouTube. I was not aware this newscast existed, and I am so excited to watch a news program that does not cause me to yell f*** you or flash my middle finger toward the tv. Just thought I would share. Maybe lots of you already know about it, but I figure there may be others, like myself, who do not.

Powers that be have been looking for the cause of the current Wisconsin covid outbreak.

Trump last came to Wisconsin September 17, drawing "thousands" to northern Wisconsin. When I watched the news of that visit, those thousands were not wearing masks and were penned
Closely together. That was 14 days ago.

A note for Donald, about his upcoming visit to Green Bay.

Hey Donald.

Don't know if anyone told you, but Wisconsin has been averaging 2500 new cases of covid a day.

Brown county has been adding 150 to 250 cases of covid a day.

About 20% of the testing done is resulting in positive cases.

Our schools are shutting down right and left to try to slow down the spread of covid. Just a side note, I have been remote learning with my grandson. I guess I have you to thank for the quality time I am getting with him.

Our football team, you may have heard of them when you tried to buy into the NFL, they are known by the name the Packers, cannot open games to the public yet, and will not do so for the near future because of the covid numbers up here.

We have a lot of hospitals, but they are filling up, yup, covid.

You can come downtown to have a beverage, our state republicans have made sure that the bars stay open. But if you want to eat at one of our fine establishments you may want to call ahead as so many have shuttered. And the many people who used to work at those shuttered establishments would ask you to get Mitch to get some help for them. Many have been out of work for a long time.

I would come to the airport to share my views with you, but you bring your fans of maskless racist cult members, and that just isn't my thing. Seeing them on tv turns my stomach. I think seeing them in person would make me vomit, made all the more uncomfortable as I do wear a mask.

Not only that, it is hard for me to get around and I have a questionable immune system and am over the age of 60. I guess to you I am a nobody, so it will not matter to you if I get sick and die, but my husband and daughter and grandkids and numerous brothers and sisters and their families might miss me. By the way, we were raised Catholic in a Milwaukee suburb. And we do not like your choice for supreme court. To be honest we do not like you either. None of us voted for you last time and none of us will vote for you this time. So that is about 50 votes for Joe.

I am hoping others in our usually reliably red area will be sharing their views with you. If not, as I said, most of your cult will not wear masks if they follow your example. It may be a little chilly Saturday evening, but its good clean air. And you will he surrounded by very good people. So shake hands with those good people and make sure to breathe in deeply.

Say hi to Vos and Fitzgerald. Please thank them for our covid explosion. And if Mike Gallagher is there don't forget to thank him for his service. He hasn't really addressed your comments about service members, which I find surprising as a Marine. I guess he agrees with you.

Oh, and if you were wondering, I did vote, dropped off at our polling place, already received. We checked.

To he honest, I do not welcome you to our community. You have done a lot of harm up here. I am just hoping you will take with you what we have left to offer. Cough.

So I just heard that Fitzgerald and crew took all of 30 seconds to shoot down taking immediate actio

on police accountability act, which is what the Bucks asked for when they did not play. The Bucks did the right thing, Governor Evers did the right thing by calling a special session, and then once again the Republicans did the wrong thing. I really dislike Wisconsin Republicans.

Can anyone recommend a good book on the Ojibwe Nation? My new granddaughter has a

Ojibwe father. We don't have much disposable income, and there are many books to choose from.
