Jan 4, 201604:46 PMBlaska's Bring It!

with David Blaska

War on cops succeeds! Crime wins!

(page 1 of 2)

Let’s quell this rumor: the Policy Werkes does not pay Annoying Mouse and his friends to lob idiotic softballs to make Your Humble Squire look like a genius. They do it for free and he would without them.

One of the mice exercised its right to self-incrimination on Dec. 24 with this typical inanity:

Yay for [State Rep.] Bob Gannon! Why do something with the office to which you were elected (likely unopposed in a gerrymandered district) when you can talk tough and call names?

Is there any doubt that crime is getting worse? Count me among the doubters! Fact, the U.S. crime rate is half of what it was in 1990 … Please do the homework you should have done before writing such a thing.

Leave aside the imbecilic incredulity that a Republican could get elected in Washington County. (Note to Anonymous: Venture outside Madison’s Isthmus some time!) Our mouse is on message.

Presidential statement after police officer killed in line of duty

The Left is in full-blown denial against mounting evidence that its War on Cops has engendered a surge in crime.

It’s called “The Ferguson Effect” after racial arsonists burned much of the downtown over the “Hands Up/Don’t Shoot” lie. (Michael Brown, fresh off a strong-armed robbery, never raised his hands and tried to wrestle the officer for his gun.) The “Black Lives Matter” protests, the cowardice of elected officials, the battering from the mainstream news media, the open hostility of the Obama administration and his attorneys general are causing police to stand down. Here in Madison, Young, Gifted and Black demanded police vacate “their neighborhoods.”

It also demanded that Madison PD officer Matt Kenny be fired and convicted — well before the officer was cleared after thorough investigations conducted by Democrat(ic) district attorney Ismael Ozanne, himself a person of color.

You know where people aren't fearful? The places where guns are hardest to come by. Why, they're so brave in places like Germany they basically invite in Syrian refugees. It's almost like they feel like their confident way of life can win over even the most troubled souls.

You're jiggering the stats to have them say what you want. I'll rely on the FBI, just like the cops you claim to stand up for (except when they want to collectively bargain for higher pay and better benefits) do.

I'll also refuse to ever be afraid. Fear is like an odor that you can't wash off once it's on you. It's not a good look. Guess I'll never win a Republican primary. Or have a blog.

Wow, that remark really got under your skin. Mission: accomplished.

Mouse? How about a reader and a customer of your employer? You sure fired a few shots, not sure you effectively countered my point (no link until page 2 and even then to a commentary, not a factual report).

Dear Anonymous 10:27: The "brave" Germans who invited hoards of Syrians and other mid-Easterners into their country are starting to see the consequences of their actions. Yahoo News reported today that roving gangs of "Arab or North African" men sexually assaulted several women at Cologne's New Year's Eve festivities. Naturally, German political leaders were "shocked" at such developments. "Troubled souls" indeed.

Seriously, 10:27 p.m.? Germany? Isn't that where a thousand "Arab" men launched a mass sexual assault on New Year's Eve? One that the media is accused of covering up out of political correctness? You gotta keep up here.

Right, step out of Madison and into the REAL WORLD, the Republicans like to tell us. Because they're all living in the real world, which is outside places like Madison? Don't you write for a Madison-based media outfit that makes its money from Madison businesses who make their money from Madison residents? What's not real about that? Check the books, Blaska: Madison liberals increasingly drive the economy of this state, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not.

Great job, Blaska! Another stunning blog post further elevating your lack of common sense, fact checking and general intelligence. This time your blog post includes the facts and you just blatantly disagree with them! I actually consider this a bit of an improvement from previous blog posts in which you just manipulate the facts to meet your agenda. Albeit your agenda is usually weak, ridiculous, and more often then not invalid. Speaking of invalid opinions, how is Carly Fiorina working out for you as your GOP presidential nominee?

Otherwise, congrats on actually posting the facts in your blog arguing the facts are wrong. Was this your new year's resolution for 2016? It's no wonder you can't write for a respectable newspaper any longer. Generally, information on a story that includes "facts" and "evidence" is a good thing. Maybe next year you will resolve to actually believing the facts as presented?

Happy new year by the way! I am sure for an old curmudgeon like yourself it's just a drop in the pond of the continued failures of our society. Regardless, try to keep your chins up!

It appears to me the crimes against police officers seems to be slowing down a bit. I think shooting enough of these criminals like Michael Brown and Tony Robinson, justified or not, has made them look to another venue to continue their crimes. And they are meeting the business end of firearms owned by homeowners. Everyday there is a new report of a person having to shoot a scumbag trying to kill or rob them. And now Resident obama wants to again empower the thugs. Shame on him.

Darn. My wife and I should have invested in Smith & Wesson and Sturm/Ruger. We'd be rich. I guess there will never be a firearms manufacturer in Madistan that we could invest in.

You display a stunning ignorance on our economy.
Nobody "makes" money. Businesses offer services that we buy by our own free choices. Take a minute and Google "competition. Do the same for "free market".

Liberals drive nothing but cost.
Liberals add feelings in lieu of value.

Obamacare comes to mind

You seem to have missed Anonymous 1:10's point. This entire state benefits GREATLY from Madison's "liberal" residents. Not sure how you missed that point.

Furthermore, not sure how "Obamacare" drives nothing but cost in lieu of value... Are you not intelligent enough to understand how large the rate increases and lack of coverage health insurance companies provided BEFORE Obamacare? How about the whole "pre-existing conditions" change? The current problem with health insurance in this state is Walker has continually refused the Federal funding for health insurance recipients (just like all the states with the largest rate increases). Based on your comments from Anonymous 1:10's post I am sure all of this is well above your reading comprehension level.
