  •  This reeks of the DeVos Family (9+ / 0-)

    Betty DeVos is tight with Alberta Darling, and both are very enthusiastic about Special Needs vouchers. Maybe they hatched this latest attempt during Happy Hour at a Mequon watering hole.

    When Alberta was young she was a teacher who served on the board of Planned Parenthood. Now she's a scary wingnut, very shrill and nasty. She is my state senator and her newsletters send my blood pressure soaring.

      When Act 10 was introduced, unions thought she'd be against it.   That's the time she completely turned around and became a total wingnut.

      I remember going to her office with some messages from her constituents and finding the hallway leading to her office completely blocked off for access.  Nobody was getting in and nobody was answering her phone or email.  The people who sent those messages with me during the first day of the protests were horrified.  These were Republicans - faithful people who not only voted for her, but 1 who also worked on her campaign.

      They remain baffled at how she could turn so completely extremist.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

        back in the day.

        I'm glad we got that done during the Doyle admin.
