So, have you no sense of decency, Paul? We now ask our brother, Rep. Paul Gosar, that same question. Although his colleagues in Congress and others in the media seem to only recently be paying attention, we have been aware of his unhinged behavior for years. So, have you no sense of decency, Paul? For starters, you repeatedly lied about the election results and achieved the deplorable distinction of being the congressman with the most tweets devoted to election lies and instigating the riot.

Forget the suburbs, the 'exurbs' are the place to be
  + stars: | 2021-08-01 | by ( Ben Winck | ) www.businessinsider.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
Exurbs were the hottest destination for white-collar Americans fleeing cities during the pandemic. The areas are more rural than suburbs and offer cheaper housing and more space for those escaping the city. The biggest population shift was from urban areas to rural neighborhoods and exurbs, Jefferies analysts said in a note citing USPS mail-forwarding data. Still, exurbs and rural areas are the only regions that added households in May and June. At the same time, suburban occupancy fell for the first time since the pandemic began, and cities continued to shed households.

Location, location, locationAs the virus raced across Wisconsin in the spring of 2020, officials in Milwaukee County became concerned about its unequal toll. “We wanted to make sure that we were equitably distributing this vaccine,” said David Crowley, the Milwaukee County executive. Then the officials displayed the results online on a color-coded map. In mid-March, when the county first released it, much of the city of Milwaukee was colored dark orange, signaling that the area had high levels of social vulnerability but low vaccination rates. On the other hand, the suburbs, where the population is wealthier and whiter, were shaded a pale yellow, indicating that they had low scores on the vulnerability index but climbing vaccination rates.

GOP Sen. Ron Johson said he would support a vaccine mandate only for an "incredibly deadly" disease but not COVID-19. COVID-19 has killed more than 613,000 people in the US and more than 4.2 million globally, per Johns Hopkins University. "No," Johnson said during a Friday evening appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" when asked whether he would ever support any sort of vaccine mandate. Over the past week, vaccine mandates have become more commonplace as cases of the disease rise. Still, Walensky said Friday there would be no federal vaccine mandate for Americans, Reuters reported.

A Wisconsin man has been reunited with his missing dog nearly two years later after he spotted the dog on a TV news segment about adoptable pets, according to UPI. The owner, who identified himself to the news station as Dwight, called in about the dog after recognizing his long-lost pet named Payday who at the time had been missing for two years. Dwight's family was still devastated over the loss of their beloved Payday, according to UPI. Dwight's mother, Melissa, went to retrieve Payday in what turned out to be a joyful reunion for both the family and the dog. Dwight told the Wisconsin Humane Society that "it only took one glance at the picture for (him) to immediately recognize Payday," according to the WHS.

A Distorted View of Wealth Inequality
  + stars: | 2021-07-30 | by ( The Editorial Board | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
That’s the takeaway from a recent working paper by five economists from the University of Wisconsin and the Federal Reserve, which adds to standard wealth measures by including Social Security and pension guarantees. As the authors write: “Our estimates show that the value of DB pensions and Social Security are significant relative to other forms of wealth—throughout the wealth distribution but especially at the lower half of the wealth distribution.”There are strong reasons to include pension and Social Security guarantees in wealth calculations. Most workers forfeit 12.4% of their income annually in payroll taxes in return for Social Security payouts starting in their 60s, but that wealth is ignored in standard inequality measures. It’s true that Social Security and some pensions are political promises rather than property rights. But as anyone who has tried to transform Social Security or public-employee pensions into private accounts has discovered, they are politically similar to property rights for beneficiaries.

It is true that the landmark civil rights bills of the 1960s were bipartisan (although to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, supporters had to neutralize a Southern filibuster in the Senate). But the two parties were not yet, at this point in their histories, defined by a single ideology. We are living in an age of high partisanship and deep polarization, where one party has an interest in a broad electorate and an open conception of voting rights, and the other does not. “State House Speaker David Ralston,” reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, proposed an investigation “to look for irregularities and fraud. And Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Fulton’s elections supervisor should be fired.”

Trump has recorded a robocall for Carey and he had the former lobbyist up on stage with him at a Trump rally in Ohio in June. The Ohio primary has seen big dollars spent on several candidates, including $220,000 in opposition ads against Carey, paid for by a group called the Conservative Outsiders PAC. A January statement from Save America, another Trump political committee, captures how the president's political operation views the power of his endorsement. "President Trump's popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time," the group said. Trump headlined a fundraiser in Dallas earlier this month to raise money for the Make America Great Again Action PAC.

Milwaukee County Judge Glenn Yamahiro said probable cause existed to charge Joseph Mensah with homicide by negligent use of a weapon in Jay Anderson Jr.’s death. Mensah said he shot Anderson after Anderson reached for a gun, but Anderson's family disputes that and the judge on Wednesday said the evidence did not back up Mensah's version of events. Anderson was the second of three people Mensah shot to death during a five-year stint with the Wauwatosa Police Department. A judge who finds sufficient evidence for charges can file them directly, leaving prosecutors out of the equation. Mensah should have been aware that pulling his weapon on Anderson created an unreasonable risk of death, Yamahiro said.

A Wisconsin judge has ruled that police officer Joseph Mensah can be prosecuted for the 2016 killing of Jay Anderson, a black man whose fatal shooting sparked protests last year. Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Glenn Yamahiro said Wednesday there was probable cause that Mr. Mensah operated a weapon in a manner constituting criminal negligence. On the night of the shooting, Mr. Anderson was asleep in his car in a park in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa after a night of drinking with friends in celebration of his birthday. Police say Mr. Anderson lunged for a gun on the passenger seat. Mr. Anderson had a one-year-old baby at the time with his girlfriend.

The change was met with relief from experts who said masking up again is essential to combat the highly contagious delta variant. "This new science is worrisome and unfortunately warrants an update to our recommendations," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Tuesday in a news briefing. Some experts have been critical of the CDC, saying the agency was premature in lifting its mask mandate for fully vaccinated people in May. Mokdad has been vocal on Twitter, saying the agency needed to reimpose its masking guidance earlier, particularly before the delta variant became the predominant strain circulating in the country. Still, while masks will be critical to slowing the spread of the delta variant, experts said it's important to also focus on increasing vaccine uptake across the country.

Meanwhile, the Consumer Price Index, a measure of inflation, jumped 5.4% over the same period — the most since August 2008. Consumer behaviorThe Consumer Price Index also doesn't account for shifts in the behavior of consumers, who may change what they buy to avoid these higher costs. But in May, the PCE index was 1.1 percentage points lower than the Consumer Price Index annual reading (3.9% versus 5%) — which indicates consumers bought lower-cost goods. For example, consumer prices fell early in the pandemic. It's unclear whether higher consumer prices and wages are temporary or longer-lasting, according to economists.

Jackie Mason, one of the last borscht belt comedians, dies at 93

Comedian and actor Jackie Mason, shown in 1963, died at age 93 on Saturday in Manhattan, New York. The one-man Broadway outings that followed included “Jackie Mason: Brand New” in 1990-91, “Jackie Mason: Politically Incorrect” in 1994-95, “Love Thy Neighbor” in 1996-97, “Much Ado About Everything” in 1999-2000 and “Jackie Mason: Freshly Squeezed” in 2005. His final one-man show, “Jackie Mason: The Ultimate Jew,” skipped Broadway. (Comedy Central, which hosted the Maher program, was unhappy, however, when Mason came out with his 1994 one-man show “Jackie Mason: Politically Incorrect” and sued the comic, seeking unsuccessfully to force a name change.) His career hit its stride with his first solo effort on Broadway, “Jackie Mason’s The World According to Me!,” in 1986.

A liquid nitrogen leak at a poultry plant in Georgia killed six workers in January. Federal officials said Friday their deaths were "entirely avoidable" had the proper precautions been taken.
