47of74 posted a topic in Quiver Full of PoliticsThe Chief Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court died unexpectedly last week. Iowans gathered today for his memorial service.
The Iowa Caucuses are being held this evening. Of course the national media doesn't care because we don't have about a dozen idiots wanting to out Nazi each other like we did on the GOP side back in 2016, or the good people on the Democrats side who were running then. They're still on, even though the weather is supposed to be bad this evening. They're good to go to if for no other reason than to hang out with other Iowans who do not think that fuck face is the Lord Jesus Christ Park 2 and that Steve King and Rod Blum are not the greatest things since sliced bread. But still I'm not risking my life to go to one if the weather is bad. It'd be different if I lived in town and was within walking distance but since I don't it's not worth the risk. In a Presidential year I might be more willing to attend even if the weather's bad but this isn't one. We have a primary later this year but I wish we'd have that here for the Presidential as well because having the caucus the weather doesn't always cooperate and people who have to work can't go.

I'd tell these guys you made your fornicating bed, now go lie in the goddamn thing. Republicans made no secret of their disdain of unions from the get go, and cops actually thought it wouldn't affect their unions. They get what they deserve if the Iowa GOP guts labor protections.
