On Venezuela's Hugo Chavez dies at 58
Ya, good riddance. Rest in...Hell
He was fair though! He made everyone equally poor.
Hmm, sound familiar.
On Education helps build awareness of white privilege
"A retired educator". Pretty much explains why todays kids are all screwed up.
Priviliges are earned, not birth rights. When individuals chose to not go to school, have multiple kids by different sperm donors, take drugs, rob,assault, rape, and commit other crimes at a percentile of race greater than any other race or color, what are they to expect.
Maybe some day there will be a minority that will stand up and say: ENOUGH we only have ourself to blame. Instead of a leader(President) that is doing all he can to facilitate welfare forever if you vote for me or my Party.
What happened to: Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For, But What You Can Do For Country"
As a minority, I am tired of my people blaming others for what THEY have done to ensure there fruits/privileges will be govt handouts.
One Big Reservation
On Retire now, teachers union advises
Employees, I would be cautious with this recommendation.
Nothing from stopping the legislature from enacting a law (like Michigan did), that reduces benefits. And mandates past and current retirees co-pay health benefits after they retire.
If there is a large number that retire, I would bet something will be legislated to pay for all the new retirees.
Do your homework! before you make such a big decision. Cause the union isn't gonna pay your bills.
On Janesville School District considering incentive pay for administrators
What a racket. So they are payed a base that assumes, they are ...adequate.
I would think $97,000+, plus health coverage, vacation, and pension for administrators (about $120,00 in compensation) would be enough incentive to do your job in a competent manner!
Solution to the public employee costing taxpayers so much: Give them a base and then deduct benefit costs. If they want benefits.
Teachers are a good example, take average salary of $70,000 gross, add benies and health care. Brings it to about $110,00 yr.
Divide that by days worked per yr, generally about 160-170, then by 6 hr day. Comes to about $75 per hr.
In many school districts both husband and wife are on the dole, as well as in- laws and their former, now retired, ex school employee. Working under contract, these old timers are keeping newer/ younger potential staff from getting hired.
It's all about the kids? Oh yeah.
On Audit: Wisconsin agencies rehired nearly 3,000 retirees
This practice goes on all over the country. It is a good ole boy practice, and from what I have seen (working in the school system) abused by all groups/cliches, not a particular party. For the most part, that is.
The jobs should be going to individuals that are trying to climb the career ladder. Not retirees that milk the system dry.
On Dress code for Janesville school employees proposed
Teachers and support staff, i would think your appearance and character wouldconsists of appropriate attire.
Certainly you must believe a professionalappearance would promote an environment the students would respect. For the most part.
Remember, your there for the kids. Not your union.
On Thousands line up to see Obama in Madison
Dosent take much effort to fill an area with college students, County and State employees. Same Idiots that occupied the Capital.
Poor kids, wait till they graduate and can't find a job. Except at Walmart or Woodmans. Stocking shelves.
But that's ok, cause we all be EQUALLY poor by then.
"Your Among Friends"
On Is global warming at play in “Frankenstorm”?
Mankinds immoral conduct will be our destruction before...Mother Nature does her thing.
Of course, maybe we can get the messiah Barack to put a word in for us.
On The Boss to join the president in Madison on Monday
Grammy award! Ah ha ha. Wouldn't that make Bruce, and Katie rich.
Rich, I thought Barry was against rich people.
Silly me, I guess if your a Hollywood freak, NBA or other rich sports star, your acceptable.
How much will these trips to Wisconsin cost us!
