divide and conquer Scott Walker has effectively created the biggest partisan divide in our state’s history. His goal was to “divide and conquer” and he has masterfully pitted people all across Wisconsin against their own family members, friends, coworkers, etc… In this era of bitter partisanship it is nice to see two people come together […]

Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it!
