If you have not heard by now, one of Scott Walkers closest allies, Cynthia Archer, was recently promoted to a civil service job where she received an almost 12% raise and is making $31,000/yr over her predecessor. To make matters worse, she was “promoted” to this job despite the fact that she did not apply […]

Tony Galli – updated

We brought the recent story of WKOW, and their employee Tony Galli, making the Bradley Foundation’s day and attacking a local elementary art teacher. Galli’s “reporting” consisted of regurgitating a very poorly written piece by the far right, Bradley funded “news” organization – Wisconsin Reporter. Then to make matters worse, the ONLY person who Galli […]

Good Meeting Tweet, Brings Bad Journalism

Apparently in today’s Wisconsin, random “tweets” are now what is classified as news! We have one of the most extreme budgets in our history being passed quickly through the Wisconsin statehouse, major cuts to education, an abysmal 2 + year Abysmal economy in Wisconsin and our paper of record is combing through random tweets! Honestly! […]

Governor Scott Walker and his Wisconsin legislative cronies have claimed another victim in their war on the locally owned “Mom and Pop” store! Johannsen’s Greenhouse, a Madison establishment since 1960 will be closing at the end of the summer! Karen said the family had no immediate plans to close shop, but then an unsolicited offer […]

More About School Choice!

Posted May 3rd, 2013 @ 6:56 AM by

We recently brought you the story of how much money the public school privateers are willing to spend in order to profit off of our children’s education!

The (Public Schools) Profit Motive

We have brought you the story before that the current round of “education reform” is a myth, that its just a ruse to try and privatize education so certain people can get their hands on our education money!

Desperate Times, Call for Desperate Measures!

Summer 2012, the Wisconsin republicans had the world by the balls. They had control over the State Assembly, the State Senate, the Governor and the Supreme Court. They were virtually untouchable(except for a recall). Then something happened, they tried to Govern. We all know the mess of ACT 10 and the turmoil and lawsuits that […]

Why Cottage Grove Desperately Needs a Library!

So the people in the village who so adamantly oppose the library, will not make a fool of themselves when they try and write letters to the editor! Goodbye Fiscal Responsibility Destination Imagination (DI) is an excellent after-school program that provides educational programs for students. Participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and […]

Wisconsin State Journal a Division of the MacIver Institute

We all remember what happened last year, the teachers of the state, led by MTI, stormed the Capitol when ACT10 was introduced. Their actions gave power to the Wisconsin 14 to head to Illinois, thus denying the republicans a quorum and delayed the actual passage of ACT10 months when it was slated to pass in […]
