Real estate developer Sam Meyers decided to add a splash of color to an otherwise vacant property in his corner of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Businessman and entrepreneur Sam Meyers brightened the corner of Johnson and Chestnut for the summer by planting a temporary field of wildflowers on a vacant lot he is planning to develop. “That little piece of land is a happy place,” Meyer told the FDL Reporter on Wednesday.The momentary meadow was initially motivated by a couple of factors: First, Meyers was weary of the endless maintenance required by the empty 60 foot square lot. Second, he needed to do something with it while

Good to see something other than Trump bashing and anti-America hate or BLM.

Does anyone know of any Antifa or BLM type bringing beauty to the community? Not just in flowers, but in genuine music, art, and craftsmanship? Hmm? Brings to mind this old piece of wisdom: “The Devil finds mischief for idle hands.”

As concerns among Democrats and liberal media outlets rise that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s apparent mental decline would hamper him during debates with President Donald Trump, some are calling for them to be conditioned on ways that would advantage the former vice president. (Photo) In a Tuesday column, New York Times writer Thomas Friedman suggested that Biden shouldn’t debate Trump unless two conditions were first met:First, Biden should declare that he will take part in a debate only if Trump releases his tax returns for 2016 through 2018. Biden has already done so…And second, Biden should insist that a real-time fact-checking team approved by both candidates be hired

CNN’s Chris Cuomo admitted Wednesday evening that homicides are rising, but appeared to place the blame on states reopening rather than ongoing protests calling to defund the police.Cuomo, alongside CNN’s Don Lemon, mocked “right-wing” media just one day earlier for reporting on rising crime in major cities – although statistics show that many cities have, indeed, seen rising crime.

As violent crime spikes in some U.S. cities, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke claims a Republican Party “death cult mentality” is to blame. Speaking on MSNBC, O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, was asked to comment on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott both recently calling for schools to reopen for the fall semester, despite the continuing coronavirus pandemic. The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence. “These are the same people who want us to accept that more people, including children, will die of gun violence this year in America than in any other developed country, bar none,” O’Rourke said,

Judge Emmet Sullivan is refusing to accept the three-judge appeals court ruling – which granted a writ of mandamus and instructed Sullivan to dismiss the Flynn case per the DOJ and Flynn defense unopposed motion. Today Judge Sullivan is asking the Full DC Circuit Court panel to conduct an en banc rehearing of the issues. [pdf here]There is no guarantee the full DC Circuit will agree to the en banc request. However, given the nature of the court, it should be anticipated. What really appears to be the undiscussed background is an effort to keep dragging this issue out as long as possible.

Washington state is considering a plan that would give priority to minority and disadvantaged students when schools reopen in the fall following months of closure during the coronavirus pandemic. Like most state chief executives across the country, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee shuttered his state's public schools earlier in the year as part of a coronavirus mitigation plan. States have lately begun considering how they will re-open their schools in the fall, if at all. Education officials across the country have proposed various plans incorporating alternating schedules, "cohorting" of students, and distance learning programs, while others have suggested the entire upcoming school year may consist entirely of virtual classrooms.

Even in perfect conditions with teleprompters to read from, Joe Biden still forgets what he's talking about. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is barely there. Appearing virtually at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' 2020 Virtual Political Conference on Wednesday, Biden appeared to be reading from a teleprompter when he repeatedly lost his train of thought. "Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber of being, we're opposed," Biden began confidently enough before he seemingly lost his place with the teleprompter. Biden then switched to platitudes about making "it happen" and illuminating "the path forward." "What I propose is, is, it can be done.

[Snip] “My decision to waive these violations is not a statement on the validity of the individual citations,” Kenney said in a statement. “Rather, it is a recognition of the core concerns that caused thousands to demonstrate on the streets of Philadelphia.

A proposed policy platform for the Democrat Party, drafted by supporters of presumed Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), would give asylum to the world’s migrants — inviting them all to the United States to live and work. The document, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship to the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the nation and welcome hundreds of millions of the world’s migrants. The proposed Democrat platform would expand asylum for migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, freeing them into the interior of the nation while they await their hearings.
