Poor incoherent William. You know, I'd be hate-filled and angry too if I'd gone through all thoseRead More years of government education and yet I couldn't string together clear and persuasive thoughts in a sentence. Think of the impact that has in your life. I think there are a lot of people your age that have a sense that they have been royally screwed by the educational system and yet they follow the guidance of the propaganda they learned in government schools and in the media to hate the right. You want the government to be your mommy because that is how the schools treated you as you were growing up. But William, government is a bad Mommy. It doesn't have mommying love and concern at its core, it has Power. I'm a patriotic American William, but I'd like you to google 'japanese intern camps, tuskegee experiment, waco and Detroit bankruptcy to see that sometimes government does bad things to individuals. To keep government from doing bad things we have to watch it very carefully. The father of our country George Washington said… "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." Conservatives want government schools to be better so people like you can be more coherent and reasoned. We think that will make you more likely to be able to make your way successfully in the world. Liberals want you to be their little child and depend on them for life and well being. But they will turn on you to keep you dependent. Years of anti-bullying efforts, bullying getting worse. Let me put this is pop cultural terms. Remember Will Smith in Enemy of the State? How do you think that kind of state came about? What about Hunger Games? Was that a good mommy government having kids kill each other? Try and really think this one out, ok William?

@ Catherine C. Catherine...Are you friggin kidding me? You'll sleep better if some unnamed peeper isRead More tracking (cyber stalking) your kids? This sounds like a scene from the SyFy channel or a new 'Freddie' movie. Frankly...I'd sleep better if I knew people with ideals like that couldn't have kids. Is this what raising kids has come too??? Substituting a spy network for parental guidance and caring????

Should the Indian logo and nickname be removed at Mukwonago High School? (Photo: WISN 12 News)
Mr Lundt August 16, 2013 at 04:24 pm
Again incred---there are Indians on BOTH sides of this argument. The Indian community is not aRead More monolithic group that all bends exactly the same way. Give them credit for being human being with minds of their own.

I am sure they can't sleep at night after seeing a Logo of their culture. Everytime I seeRead More lederhosen I cry all night in emotional trama. I've spoken with sucidial Norwegeens after they saw the Vikings play. Then I informed them there were local schools With the same logo. That was it, they jumped off the bridge. I've seen PETA members tremble uncontrollably after learning of all the animinal mascots and logos in sports. This must be stopped. We must be respectful to everyon's individual emotion at all times no matter how many it will effect and in turn cause them emotional harm and financial loss.

Lundt - how DARE you use the "I" word - you've offended every Native American with thatRead More offensive, racially charged word. Your hate speech is offensive and evil - knock it off!! We need to change EVERY Native American word in use throughout Wisconsin that ANYONE claims offense to - just like changing the "I" word for Mukwonago HS because one student complained.

@ Come on Already-You can thank Alberta Darling, Don Pridemore and Scott Walker for the taxRead More increases. They took money from public education to fund their plan to eliminate public education by taking our tax dollars from Menomonee Falls and giving it, as vouchers, to families who's children are already attending a private school, leaving the residents of Menomonee Falls to make up for the cuts in state funding. The system for funding public schools was already not working and Walker, Darling and Pridemore have made it worse by taking money from districts like ours that are succeeding and giving it to families of students attending private school. They cut so much of the state aid coming to MF that cutting 10-12 classroom teachers barely made a dent in the $2.4 million deficit the Walker budget left us with this year and another $2.1 expected next year. You will be seeing even bigger increase in our taxes or the board will propose a referendum.

Put every teacher and every administrator on Obummer care. We dont pay one more cent to theirRead More health care. And they start putting in at least 25% towards their own pensions.
Tom McMahon July 1, 2013 at 05:05 pm
Just follow the money on this one: 1. The Wisconsin Teachers Union provides massive funding to TonyRead More Evers campaign for Wisconsin State School Superintendent. 2. Evers win puts him in charge of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). 3. The Wisconsin DPI funds the Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RtI) Center. 4. The Wisconsin RtI Center hands out meaningless awards to schools staffed by members of the Wisconsin Teachers Union. 5. The Wisconsin Teachers Union and their ilk point to these meaningless awards as proof they're doing just a wonderful, wonderful job. 6. Pretty slick, eh?
John Wilson June 28, 2013 at 09:08 am
Gov. Walker's agenda for schools: "Privatize them all, along with every other currentRead More government operation, and let the taxpayers of Wisconsin pay for it... "State aid to the district has fallen 48 percent since the 2007-08 school year, and the local tax has risen 19 percent." This is not about unions, education, children or what is best for Wisconsin; it is all about "privatizing" everything so Gov. Walker and his "friends" may rape, rob and pillage the entire state with impunity. "You're doing a great job, Brownie!"

Libruls agenda for schools: "Continue to prevent innercity kids from learning enough to supportRead More themselves so they will be dependent on the taxpayers and vote for liberulz. Use the school system as a protected jobz system for average intellects with predisposition to union thuggery" Menomonee Falls School Tax raised 20 percent three years in a row... Superintendent Marty when is it going to get better? "Oh we're just getting started!!!!!" ---re Walker -Rape robbing and pillaging ---- when you are of below average intelligence every argument is an emotional one. You want to see rape, robbery and pillaging look at what da unions have done to Detroit.
Lyle Ruble July 1, 2013 at 07:10 am
I don't understand the position of the conservatives in regards to truthful statements. If itRead More doesn't agree with their preconceived beliefs, they reject it as an emotional 'only' response. The conservative troglodyte intellectuals need to read and research and not depend on their right wing think tanks to tell them 'how it is'. A full understanding of how education is financed is in order before throwing grenades at the messenger. Certain people who have responded, have an overall awareness somewhere equal to a well worn rock.
