Elizabeth Coppola In the 21st! Our public schools depend on it! Broken deals, petulant behavior, single-minded focus on an extreme social agenda at the expense of legislation to put Wisconsinites to work and move our state forward… If you watched last night and this morning on WisconsinEye, read about it in the papers this morning, […]

Watching Captain Phillips recently, my wife turned to me and said “I’ve found someone who has a harder job than I do”. I pointed out that, that is because the pirates have found a legal way to steal your money! The fight to protect our public schools is getting harder and harder by the day. […]

UGGG. We all know that Scott Walker is in trouble. His poll numbers are tanking. His absolute love of cronyism at the expense of the Wisconsin taxpayer was perfectly defined recently. Add to that, almost daily we get stories of how Scott Walker is spending unlimited Wisconsin taxpayers money on his presidential run. This slow […]

Posted August 17th, 2013 @ 1:25 PM by

The truth of school Vouchers is slowly starting to come out and its not pretty. While Scott Walker, Robin Vos, et al. will tell you that they have “reformed” education, they will not be telling you the truth. Let’s start in Wisconsin where the republican minority have greatly increased the public education money that is […]

Apparently in today’s Wisconsin, random “tweets” are now what is classified as news!

I recently attended the Educate to Elevate Conference in Madison, and I was very skeptical going in. While I left the conference just as skeptical, I think there were a few good things that came out of it. It is never bad when people get together and discuss ways to improve education. I also had […]

We all know by now that Sly in the Morning and the local news team, on 1670 WTDY was ambushed and fired the day before Thanksgiving by new General Manager Rick Mccoy. Thus effectively ending any local voice that progressives have. Also ending any chance that people have of actual real time news coverage. With […]
