Politicians are like diapers or maybe handwriting on the wall?

Schachtner beat Jarchow-R in the state senate race and scared Walker into not allowing special elections. Now he’s not even running for his assembly seat. His excuse is that “politicians are like diapers”. Interesting simile. 😄

Not Screnock!

February 19, 2018

I shut up an NRA right winger yesterday in church.

He started asking me about arming teachers before I even got my coat off. I said, “Look at me. Many students in the middle school and high school could overpower me in a matter of seconds, grab my keys and get the gun. Then what?” He then started muttering about armed security guards. I asked about funds. (He has complained in the past about new school hires) He then muttered something about volunteers with guns. I gave him an incredulous look, and said, “What could go wrong with that?”He shut up. His daughter is also a teacher! I just don’t understand these people.
