On Should we move to year-round k-12 education?
Yes. I've know several families from the United States and abroad who attend school year round and love it. While year round education has more days off per year the breaks are two to four weeks off rather than three months in a row. All parents report the kids return rejuvenated with no skills or knowledge lost. It makes sense but we are reluctant to change.
On Republicans negotiate changes to Wisconsin budget
The republicans are at it again. Creating a shortfall of $500,000.00 at the end of 2017. This is the debt this administration will pass on to the future. The Tommy Thompson administration passed along the same debt and you see where it put Wisconsin, this administration is doing it again. They are creating a society that encourages the rich to become slum lords, puts violent criminals on the streets as the rich profit on the bonds (not to mention cutting public safety which puts us all in danger), takes DNA from innocent people and forces the DNR to restrict/ enforce no protesters at mine sites. This is a dispicible budget and sickens me. If your not sickened your not paying attention!
On Assembly delays budget debate until Wednesday
The republicans are up to it again. This budget passes along a $500,000.00 debt to the successor and the taxpayers of Wisconsin in 2017. The Tommy Thompson administration passed along the same debt to the future of Wisconsin and it grew to $4B. As this budget does not address roads and infrastructure it does address allowing big business to become slum lords without conditions, collect DNA from innocent people, allows the wealthy scum to profit on bonds that allow violent criminals to return to the streets (let's not mention the cuts to public safety which would be our only net to protect us from the released violent criminals). Robin Voss and the Republicans are "proud" of this budget. It's sickening!
On About those saggy pants
To each their own. I hate seeing obese people in tank tops yet its their right and I see it all the time.
On Milk money: Farm bill could hinge on dairy vote
More pork to the farmers at the consumer/ taxpayers expense. If a gallon of milk cost $7 to produce mark it up so you make a profit, don't make an insurance policy covered by the government/ taxpayers offset your expenses.
On Many Abes a-running in Lincoln-Tallman event
That's awesome and that the starter was dressed as John Wilkes booth was even better.
On Does secrecy at state Capitol bother you?
YES! It should not be legal and this scum needs to be removed!
On Senate passes half-trillion dollar farm bill
This is corporate welfare.
On It’s time to end our failed war on marijuana
Check out Jamen Shively. From recent TV interviews he appears to be an expert on the marijuana legillazition trend and business. He recently said after 2015 elections twelve more states will have legilaized marijuana. Time to set up business.
Very good article. The waste of money to fight the war on marijuana is a senseless waste of taxpayer money. Every drug czar the president has appointed states that marijuana is a war that cannot be won, yet we spend hundreds of millions fighting it. Embrace it, tax it, create an economy around it, save hundreds of millions to fight a bigger battle.
