On Pridemore won't force schools to drop mascots
A vote for Pridemore is a vote AGAINST public education. Pridemore appears to be so incompetent that even at THIS point in the race he is unaware the superintendent's office can't alter the school mascot policy. A trained monkey would be a better choice for State School Superintendent.
On Mukwonago district refuses to drop Indians nickname
The decision to allow schools to continue using Native American “mascots” SHOULD be made by the Native Americans whose images and vocabulary are usurped by schools like Mukwonago, NOT legislators, parents, school boards or courts. Native Americans should have the right to determine how their cultural heritage is portrayed by public entities.
On August tapped to chair two committees
Obviously, based on Rep. August's lack of experience and intellect, Republicans place a greater emphasis on lap dog like obedience above an individuals character or substance. I'm sure August will fill the role of a brown nose as he's expected to be.
On Walker defends his count on jobs progress
donnaw, good to see that you finally admit Walker is using lies to deceive voters in Wisconsin. I'm sure you won't make the same mistake twice by voting for Walker in the future.
The average politician has little credibility these days. Walker just lacks more than the average. Its even more disgusting when they actually make attempts to defend a stance or number that has been proven to be incorrect. I find it insulting when politicians, like Walker, believe the average voter is too stupid to notice when they blatantly lie.
On Concealed carry: one year report card
“high profile tragedies in Milwaukee”.There haven't been any. -How about high profile tragedies in Slinger, MKEGal. Evidently, the fact an unarmed young man was shot to death by a homeowner doesn't count as a tragedy. It's appalling that some individuals have such little regard for human life. Your attempt to compare a vehicle purchase to a gun purchase is completely illogical. Many items can "kill" if used incorrectly but why shouldn't the intended purpose of the item determine how it's commerce is regulated? Background checks should be performed on all individuals buying a gun no matter how the gun is obtained. Your argument against law enforcement using a database to determine who has a conceal carry permit is feeble as well. It's ludicrous to think law enforcement treat every person as though that individual is carrying a loaded weapon. I firmly believe gun ownership should be legal but I totally disagree with the general lack of oversight. Those who do not provide for proper storage of their weapons by keeping them locked and unloaded should be held accountable for crimes committed or deaths attributed to their carelessness. Civic rights come a sense of responsibility. If your intentions are indeed to be law abiding, then the law is not a burden.
On Walker doesn't support arresting federal officials
Wow, those Republicans get whackier everyday! Imagine - arresting Federal officials for doing their job. Next thing you know there will be crazy talk of secession from the Union.
On Loudenbeck, Schroeder spar over job creation, Act 10
If it works so well to cut the wages and benefits of those whose earnings are paid by taxpayers RAF, then why don't our Legislators and Governor cut their own benefits and pay?
On Wis. GAB: 545K have requested absentee ballots
Gee, mikeforgacs, it appears you're wrong.
On VP Ryan? Prof. Ryan? GOP nominee's future unclear
