    What "democrat took away bargaining power with a wage freeze "?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Of these nearby states, only Minnesota did slightly better teaching reading to its public school students. In 2009, 39 percent of eighth graders in Minnesota public schools earned a rating of “proficient” or better in reading, and the average eighth grade reading score in the state was 270 out of 500.
    According to that article only 32% of Wisconsin public-school eighth graders earned a “proficient” rating... but of the Midwestern states only Minnesota did better with 39%.

    39%!!! is considered high in the Midwest.... that's pathetic. American kids are stupid.

    I wonder how it compares to private schools...

    Just a little bit of honest searching will show you that Wisconsin is rated 8th in the nation.

    Both parties have a scheme.

    Two sh*t parties successfully wield all the political power. Both have screwed and divided the country, and they have turned the people against each other instead of the people turning against them... And the people remain as hard right and left as they did before we got into this mess. It's a scheme that works for the parties, not the people... it keeps them in power and keeps all the money in their and their lobbyist's pockets

    Too bad you missed my links you just responded to without reading. You would have learned that Wisconsin is rated 8th in the nation in education.
