People complain about the cost of the wars. But I’m starting to think they were a pretty good deal.

Thefts of catalytic converters spike in Milwaukee and other Wisconsin cities. What you can do to deter thieves.
Verna Taylor always took good care of her 2004 Toyota Sequoia, so when she cranked up her truck one morning to run errands, she knew the loud sound she heard wasn’t normal and drove straight to a nearby muffler shop.
“My truck sounded like a loud tractor or something,” Taylor said.
When the muffler shop hoisted the Sequoia on the lift, the mechanic quickly spotted the problem.
“Someone cut my catalytic converter," Taylor said. "I didn’t even know what a catalytic converter was before this.”
The bigger surprise: a $1,500 price tag to fix it.
While Milwaukee police don’t break out stolen catalytic converters by category, they say stolen car parts — of which catalytic converters are the main target — are up significantly this year. As of April 11, there have been 497 “stolen car parts” reported, up 19% from the same time last year.
“For someone to just violate you like this makes you want to move from the area. I’m sick and tired of it,” Taylor said.

The media is really stoking this theory that Cunt Patrol secretly planned to kill Good Boy on purpose, and staged the thing where she accidentally pulled a gun instead of a taser.

MADISON - A Madison couple sued the state Thursday over a college grant program for minorities that they argue violates the Wisconsin Constitution.
The suit, brought with the assistance of the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, contends the minority grant program operated by the state's Higher Educational Aids Board violates the clause of the state constitution that says everyone is equal. The grants are available to some minorities but not other minorities.
Those bringing the lawsuit want the grants to be given out based on financial need, not race.
Among those bringing the lawsuit are Konkanok Rabiebna and Richard Freihoefer of Madison. Rabiebna is from Thailand and Freihoefer is white. Their biracial teenage son does not qualify for the grant program.
“Government programs must be available to everybody, not just certain racial groups," Rabiebna said in a statement.
MADISON - Republicans in the Legislature won't legalize medical or recreational marijuana, the leader of the state Senate said Thursday.
"We don’t have support from the caucus. That’s pretty clear, that we don’t have 17 votes in the caucus for medicinal purposes or recreational purposes (to) legalize it," Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu of Oostburg said, referring to the minimum number of votes needed to pass a bill in the Senate.
LeMahieu and other Republican leaders for weeks have made clear they will not go along with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' proposal to legalize recreational marijuana.
But some Republicans back medical marijuana and it appeared possible that legislation on that issue could get through the Legislature.
During a virtual question-and-answer session with WisPolitics on Thursday, LeMahieu made clear that wouldn't happen. Legalizing marijuana for medical reasons should be left to the federal government, he said.
Anyone who gets sad about a Mexican boy dying is no better than a QAnon insurrectionist.
Using an electro nic health records network we estimated the absolute incidence of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) in the two weeks following COVID-19 diagnosis (N=513,284), or influenza (N=172,742), or receipt of the BNT162b2 or mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccines (N=489,871).
The incidence of portal vein thrombosis (PVT) was also assessed in these groups, as well as the baseline CVT incidence over a two-week period. The incidence of CVT after COVID-19 diagnosis was 39.0 per million people (95% CI, 25.2–60.2). This was higher than the CVT incidence after influenza (0.0 per million people, 95% CI 0.0 – 22.2, adjusted RR=6.73, P=.003) or after receiving BNT162b2 or RNA-1273 vaccine (4.1 per million people, 95% CI 1.1 – 14.9, adjusted RR=6.36, P<.001).
Wait a second.... you said the vaccines are more dangerous yet the data says that Covid-19 is ten times as dangerous as the vaccine for the same condition. So how can the title of this article be correct?
Simple: For every reported infection somewhere around ten are not reported. Either they're completely asymptomatic (about 30%) or mild enough that the person in question does not identify it as potentially Covid-19 and thus does not get tested.
Yet both of the latter confer immunity just as does a symptomatic case.
Further, you're not guaranteed to get the disease. You are guaranteed to take the risk if you get the shot. Therefore we must adjust for the risk of contracting the disease which is not certain; you may have already had it and not know it and, in addition, you may have cross-reactive immunity.

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - After nearly fifty years, The Pipefitter is closing its doors for good.
In this incredible and outrageous video footage just released on Twitter, a white supremacist male tries to “catch and kill” a good boy who was not doing nothing.
