  •  My husband plays cards every six (2+ / 0-)

    weeks for the last 20 years or so.  He is the only Democrat in his group.  I sympathize with the diarist.  One of the fellows he plays cards with has two children that are teachers in WI.  He is a huge Walker fan.  His two kids are Democrats.  They're just starting out in life.  You would think he would care about the quality of what their lives as educators in WI will be like.  Nope.  

    One of the other guys he plays cards with drives school bus.  He's retired.  He claims he doesn't need the money, but he just needs something to do(not sure about that).  However, this guy, he makes $13 driving school bus.  The district he works for is having to sell of their buses and subcontract out the jobs to a bussing company.  He says the bussing company will pay the drivers $10 an hour.  He says, you don't need to make $13 an hour to drive bus.  How about this:  DON'T YOU WANT THE MOST QUALIFIED PEOPLE AVAILABLE TO DRIVE AROUND OUR CHILDREN?  DO YOU REALLY NOT CARE IF THEY LOSE THE BETTER DRIVERS AND HIRE PEOPLE THAT ARE LESS QUALIFIED FOR $3 LESS AN HOUR?  I  guess not.

    I don't get it.  I really don't.
