School boards and administrations never tire of pickpocketing


What’s the typical MO of most school boards and administrations?

Citing all kinds of problems, they cry for money.

If they don’t get the money, civilization, as we know it, will crumble.

Money is the only answer to solve the problems they perceive.

How do they get the money?

You know how.

They put a referendum on the ballot.

Then they concoct an end of the world sob story to try to guilt voters into opening up their wallets to say, in between tears, “Here. You can have it. Take as much as you want.”

They will use every tactic and trick in the book (locking voting age students into a school assembly to instruct them on the referendum, handing out flyers in school to take home to parents, talking about how good a YES vote would be right in class, etc.)

Now the referendum passes.

The money comes pouring in from suckers, I mean taxpayers.

And all those problems go away, right?

Yeh, sure.

And then, there’s one more element to this entire process.

Know what it is?

Think about it.

If you’re insightful, it’ll come to mind rather quickly.

You really didn't expect Jim Doyle to do the right thing, did you?

Well, he didn't.


In his weekly column in the Waukesha Freeman, Mark Belling wrote this about the Doyle story:

If you get most of your information from the local mainstream media you don’t know that:

* Gov. Jim Doyle spent six hours in the middle of the flooding crisis to attend a golfing event to raise money for his own campaign.

The Doyle golf story was ignored by virtually everybody, although The Freeman printed a small story on Page 1. The head of the state’s largest political Web site, Jeff Mayers of wispolitics.com, told me he didn’t know about Doyle’s break from flood work to raise money while golfing (I guess "wispolitics" isn’t too connected with Wisconsin politics). The excuse from Madison’s largest newspaper, the Wisconsin State Journal, was even "better." Here’s what the paper’s managing editor, Tim Kelley, wrote to readers wondering why Doyle’s golfing while Wisconsin was flooding was ignored:

"We have a compelling story running in the morning about how and why many homeowners aren’t going to be able to get flood insurance coverage thanks to missteps by local officials who failed to update floodplain maps. That’s more significant reporting than taking a cheap shot at the governor ... "

Cheap shot! The media has apparently moved from ignoring all embarrassing stories about Democrats to now taking shots at those who dare to actually report them.

The answers and some other kissing tidbits from msn.com and
Laura Schaefer, the author of Man with Farm Seeks Woman with Tractor: The Best and Worst Personal Ads of All Time


1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.


2. A simple peck uses two muscles;
a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that’s a rigorous workout!


3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes,
no two lip impressions are alike.


4. Kissing is good for what ails you.
Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.


5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.
 


6. Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.


7. Talk about a rush!
Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.


8. The average woman kisses 29 men
before she gets married.


9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work
average higher incomes than those who don’t.


10. The longest kiss in movie history
was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you’ve beaten that record, it’s time to celebrate!



Now isn't this more fun than looking at some rendering of a site plan for a new Costco in Two Rivers?
