No garbage pickup.

Early last evening the phone rang, based on the caller ID I thought it was another political call.

Nope, it was the Racine Department of Public Works.

They were sending out a recording letting Racine residents know that if their garbage pickup is normally on Monday that it will not be picked up until the following Monday due to Memorial Day.

Furthermore if that is your scheduled day for recycling that those items would be picked up in two weeks.

Wouldn't you know it Monday is my pickup day for both.

In the past items were always picked up on the next day.  Now in a new and apparently improved system those of us with Monday pickup will apparently just be ignored every time there is one of these 3-day weekends.

Funny I didn't notice my property tax bill reflecting the new reduction in services.

Oh well, I guess I need to pay them not to pick up the garbage.

A point to ponder.....

Liberals tax cigarettes and alcohol to reduce consumption, so why do they tax capital and job creators?

Does Walking In Your Constituents Shoes Make You Unfit to Represent Them?

The Root River Skank (I will not link to that vile excuse for a human being) has written another hit piece, this time on a Kenosha woman who announced her intention to run for the 22d district state senate seat currently held by that great example of the taxidermist's art, Bob "Fleebagger" Wirch.  This woman, who is otherwise an extremely intelligent, energetic, and imaginative applicant for the job, has unfortunately, like many in this economically devastated corner of Wisconsin, apparently run into some financial problems.  The Root River Skank takes great delight in detailing those problems, based on Wisconsin Circuit Court records. 

Now, according to the Circuit Court website, it is a violation of state law to discriminate against a job applicant because of an arrest or conviction record unrelated to the job in question.  You could argue, I suppose, whether having been a victim of economic circumstance ought to disqualify a person from having a voice in the political process, but doing so might prove a bit inconvenient for the Skank, insofar as many of the signatures she herself helped to gather during the recall process came from people with significantly worse backgrounds than that prospective candidate.  And, if having financial difficulties was a disqualifying factor, will the Skank be endorsing the Republican challenger to the Skank's friend and fellow traveler, Representative Gwen Moore, who has irregularities of her own?

One of the things that makes that woman such a great potential candidate to represent the people of the 22d district is the extent to which she already walks in their shoes.  They're hardworking people, who happen to be a little down on their luck, and resembling her constituents, with their same problems and same dreams, ought not be a disqualification.
