This item was added to the agenda last night: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=18408
Does the City of Bloomington have awards for every local business that celebrates a 25th anniversary, or is it just for campaign supporters? Jan Lancaster, owner of the Bistro, is a huge Tari supporter.
Progressives love to divide people. If various factions need to fight for perceived status they won’t be watching the real show behind the government curtain. We seen a lot of this under Tari. We have been told the police need supervised, hence the PSCRB that has yet to hear a complaint. We have been told illegal aliens need to feel welcome. Luckily this went nowhere or next would be demands for illegals getting to vote in local elections.
Progressives constantly nudge. If nudge doesn’t work it turns to push, it accelerates from there. I bet we haven’t seen the last of the welcoming ordinance, the factions are merely regrouping.
Contrast progressives with conservatives. The first difference is laws matter, conservatives don’t govern on “feelings”. That’s why the welcoming ordinance has gone nowhere. Second, we don’t care what you do in your bedroom. Do anything you want in the privacy of your own home. Parading through downtown Bloomington to nudge residents won’t do anything but be divisive. Progressives like Tari love it.

Origin of Diversity:
Middle English: from Old French diversite, from Latin diversitas, from diversus ‘diverse’, past participle of divertere ‘turn aside’
See the similarity? Diversity is divisive because it encourages tribalism. Diversity can’t exist without clear lines separating people. The people supporting diversity don’t believe “all men are created equal”. Tari epitomizes divisiveness while calling it diversity.
How do other long-time business owners feel today? Where are their proclamations?
Tari’s proclamation had nothing to do with Jan Lancaster owning the Bistro for 25 years. Tari wanted to promote the “pride” parade, and he used the Bistro for cover. See the video of the proclamation below – just hit play. Tari almost forgot this item and had to be reminded, but he was thrilled to read it.
Maybe Tari and Chris Koos saved their sashes from Boston:
