The Beer: California Common and IPA are bottled; the IPA is ready to drink. I have ingredients for something, but I haven't decided what. Pilsen Malt, flaked corn and Biscuit malt. Saaz, Hallertau, Amarillo and Cascade hops are available to me. What to do?
The Bicycle: 40-or-so miles tomorrow with the neighborhood. Catching up quickly. The goal is a ride to and from work on June 10. 80 miles round trip.
The VRWC: As we were leaving Atlas Shrugged last night (see my next entry), it dawned on my that the people chanting "This is what democracy looks like" in Madison the last few months are displaying not democracy, but hypocrisy. The elections haven't gone their way, so they have taken to the streets, introduced recalls and attempted political extortion against businesses. That is not "democracy" or anything resembling it. It is political thuggery of the worst kind. Whatever side of the fence you are on, you should be condemning this type of political behavior. Recalling elected representatives because you do not like their political stand while calling those who have committed an illegal, immoral and unethical act by running from the state "heroes" is just more rank hypocrisy. A SCOWI candidate running on the platform of stopping the legitimate legislative function and a union-bought-and-paid-for county judge doing exactly that mocks the law and the court system.
In the end, no matter. The Conservatives of Wisconsin are wide awake and at the ready. We won in November, we have won in April and we will win in recall.
Get used to living under our rules.
