Happy belated birthday, America, and welcome to Insanity Wrap, your daily dose of the best of the worst. That a federal court slaps down Biden tax mandate is today’s big crazy sanity!
We partied like any year other than 2020 or ’21

Before we get to today’s big story, here’s a short video to make you lose whatever little regain however much faith you might still have need in humanity.
This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006
It’s been a pretty great weekend, right down to the friends, the grilling, and maybe drinking a little too much with the friends and the grilling.
Insanity Wrap has joked for years that the modern super-state has turned the notion of “paying the Danegeld” on its head.
Pay the Danegeld, they used to warn, and you’ll never be free of the Dane.
But when you have a multitrillion-dollar government using a combination of big bucks, regulations, consent decrees, mandates, incentives, etc., to push uniformity on a polyglot federal republic, we need to rethink that old saw.
“Take the Danegeld, and you’ll never be rid of the Dane.”
With those tasty federal dollars comes the slow poison of federal control.
But not this day:
U.S. District Judge Douglas R. Cole from the District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has issued a permanent injunction to block a vague tax mandate in Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, the Washington Examiner reported.
Cole’s ruling blocks the Biden administration from preventing Ohio from using money it got from a federal coronavirus relief bill to pay for tax cuts.
Cole also stated that he was concerned the Biden administration’s tax mandate violated the separation-of-powers principles from the Founding Fathers.
Cole is another one of those many Trump appointees helping to rein in federal power — that’s as fine a legacy as any oath-abiding president could hope for.
