I should be writing about a lot of other things tonight but I am lazy and watching returns and can’t even motivate to go to one of the five campaign parties I’ve been invited to.

The Boulder Junction Shooting Range, a non profit organization that runs one of the DNR gun ranges in northern Wisconsin blasts the state for changing the rules and starting a ban on alcohol at state owned ranges. I mean beer and guns…what could possibly go wrong! (yes I know they only sell alcohol after a shooter is done on the range per NRA suggested rules but…).

And although the big news about Donald Trump’s appearance at UWM yesterday surrounds the fact Milwaukee Police officers covered their names while patrolling the protests…to me the bigger issue was the UWM faculty attitudes. Several professors complained to the Chancellor in an open letter that the university should not have rented a theater facility to the candidate. That’s utter nonsense. The letter is correct when it states the fact that Mr. Trump is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, fascist…but he is still a candidate for president and he should be heard on campus…AND the campus should come out in protest just like they did.

OTOH: why didn’t the actual protest get any press??

    I agree with you that Trump should not be even considered as a presidential candidate but he is there already. The only thing we can do is protest him anywhere he goes.

  2. Did you just see the debate? A lot of people are really starting to like Trump. I hope to God he does not win.
