Why Don’t We Vote?

These two photos are Afghans waiting to vote despite the threats of death from the Taliban.

Gov. Scott Walker on Friday proposed freezing the University of Wisconsin System tuition for another two years, adding on to a similar hard cap enacted last year.

That should give him just about enough time to finish his degree…we wouldn’t want him saddled with thousands in student debt going into the 2016 Presidential election cycle!

Here’s the lead into the story:

Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) announced Thursday he will challenge longtime Republican congressman Tom Petri in the 6th Congressional District.

That Didn’t Take Long: Supervisor Bowen to Run for Rep. Pasch’s Seat.

Just a day after Representative Sandy Pasch’s announcement that she will not seek re-election from the Wisconsin 10th Assembly District, County Supervisor David Bowen throws his hat squarely into the ring.

Rep. Sandy Pasch Is Not Running For Re-election.

Most of you have probably heard or read about State Representative Sandy Pasch’s decision to not run for re-election.
