Something stinks big time.

GE gave the Milwaukee School System money and Barrett defeated Union efforts to take control of the Milwaukee Public Schools (arguably the single worst school system in the Nation):

" the Wisconsin Education Association Council and Service Employees International Union. WEAC has had an uneasy relationship with Barrett since it fought his unsuccessful effort to take control of the Milwaukee Public Schools in 2009. AFSCME officials have charged that Barrett used the legislation that kicked off the protests against Walker -- Act 10, curtailing public employees' collecting bargaining rights -- to drive a hard bargain with public employees in Milwaukee."

For more information on how Barrett used Walker's Act 10 to "balance his budget on the backs of the workers and went further than Act 10" according to Rich Abelson executive director of AFSCME [the statewide public employees union] in Milwaukee see http://www.isthmus.com/daily/article.php?article=36584&sid=f23284a739992553d8ae49bd4abcae34 When reading the article you will also see mention of Barrett's buddy Obama's Rahm Emmanual who stiffed his teachers in Chicago.

Is GE trying to take over the public school system or something?!?

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
