jan6-insurrection-wdcMADISON - As this July 4 weekend approached, I got to thinking about the platitudes we’re taught about our country from the earliest age, and how Trump’s coup attempt – and the failure, so far, to hold him and his accomplices accountable – pokes big holes in those platitudes. Here’s what I wrote on this:

This July 4, Who Is Above the Law?

I also wrote something on yesterday’s really bad decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court in the case about Fred Prehn, Walker’s appointee to the DNR board who simply refuses to step down even though his term expired more than a year ago. His outrageous behavior – and the ability of the Republicans to flout the people’s will – was upheld by this outrageous ruling, as I note here:

In “Absurd” Prehn Decision, Wisconsin Supreme Court Reinforces Gerrymandering

We’ve had a spate of really bad rulings lately, from the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court. They only reinforce the urgency of voting.

Between now and November 2024, we’ll see whether any of the platitudes about our country still hold up.

I’m hoping we all can refresh ourselves over the holiday weekend, and then, recharged, we fight on.

Have a safe holiday!
