WASHINGTON STATE IS BASICALLY CONSIDERED A BLUE STATE, thus it surprises me that they don't have an state income tax. This puts them on par with Florida for example, however, Seattle - of course - passed a city income tax to buck Washington state law. And of course the Seattle income tax is being challenged.

I JUST REALIZED THAT TODAY, many of the posts you see here actually have titles. Alright yay me!

ALL THIS ATTENTION ON CONFEDERATE STATUES...

...however not enough on a gynecologist who experimented on slave women without anesthesia.The city of New York won't take it down and here you see a very graphic protest.
Here's more on J Marion Sims via Wikipedia. You can also read this article from the Daily Mail.

WAIT WHAT? THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE....

NEWSALERT: Boston Antifa : This is on the Boston ANTIFA page. They're against Conservatives, the Constitution, Libertarians, & Moderate Libs.

Ahhhh, so this literally could be described as a free speech march that was crashed by these so-called "anti-fascists". 
BROKE WHILE I WAS ON MY WAY TO CHICAGO'S AIR & WATER SHOW. Comedy legend Jerry Lewis passed away today at 91. I'm mostly familiar with his muscular dystrophy telethon, but has a large body of work as a movie comedian. And let's not forget there had been a movie theater chain with his name on them.
FROM HENCEFORTH SJW's OR SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS are simply people who look for something to complain about. Case in point over at Instapundit, people are complaining that the USC mascot's name is similar to the name of a horse owned by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Oh man, these poor animals can't even escape the sins of their owners.
THIS HAPPENED YESTERDAY: Massive Counter Protests Overwhelm Boston 'Free Speech Rally' On Common. Did the Anti-Fascists or "Antifa" strike again? [VIDEO]
Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) has called for one of her state's Democratic legislators to step down after she posted on Facebook her desire to see President Trump assassinated.

The Missouri Democrat told CBS News that she thought Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal's Facebook post, in which she said, "I hope Trump is assassinated," was "outrageous."

"I condemn it. It's outrageous," McCaskill said. "And she should resign." ...
"I refuse to resign for exercising my First Amendment rights, even though what I said was wrong," [Maria Chappelle-Nadal] said. 
An irresponsible statement for a public official to make regardless of whether or not this is free speech or even if she wasn't a federal official. Here's a screencap below

BARCELONA: Senior police official: Barcelona van attack linked to explosion previous day in which 1 person was killed

Found this at the Guardian at about 4:45.

Not much to this AP report, however, perhaps there will be more to be found soon!
UNBELIEVABLE: You know I do respect Democrat Jesse White believe me, at the same time it's time for him to hang it up. He's running again for Illinois Secretary of State which means well he may well win with no serious opposition. Doesn't matter if they're a Democrat or a Republican someone else is out there and has a plan for essentially Illinois' dept. of motor vehicles.

He isn't the only politician in this state who has difficulty leaving politics. I can point to Congressman Bobby Rush who floats retirement only to thrown his had back in the ring. Another longtime state executive officer is Lisa Madigan - Illinois' Attorney General and yes a daughter of longtime state house speaker Michael Madigan - who is also running for re-election to her current post. Though in her case her father's unwillingness to retire from his role is largely keeping her in place.

SPENGLER: What Do We Say About Decent Men Who Died for a Wicked Cause?

Indeed, what do we say for those well meaning Confederates who represented a largely dying society that supported slavery?
