An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 5 July 2012
It’s SUMMER! And sometimes, it gets REALLY REALLY HOT! Then, it turns into winter, and sometimes, it gets REALLY REALLY COLD! Jiminy crickets people! We have NO control over the weather! It’s gonna do what it’s gonna do, no matter WHAT we do. *shakes head* Morons!
This isn’t the type of book I normally read, cuz, well, I hate it when people get killed or hurt, even if it is in a work of fiction. Guess I’m getting to be a major wuss in my old age! But I gotta tell ya, when I started reading, I was hooked! Big time! I’m not a fast reader, but I almost finished it in one sitting. The only reason I didn’t was cuz I fell asleep. I do that now and then, don’cha know. So….I’m gonna recommend…quite highly…..
The Blue Hallelujah by Andy Straka
As is typical for Kindle versions, there were a few typos, but nothing major….for a change.
These days, it’s really hard to come across anyone who has much common sense, if any at all, in the public arena. But Governor Scott Walker, once again, proves that it is possible for a politician to use the sense God gave him! Unfortunately, I’ve no doubt that bunch at UW will do the same sort of whining that the public sector unions gave us last year, when they trashed the beautiful capital building in Madison. Seriously….this country NEEDS more public servants like Scott Walker!
Governor Walker Breaks New Ground in Higher Ed
Governor Scott Walker (R-WI), already well known for his efforts to curb union power, has now set out to tackle an equally big task: busting the higher education bubble.
The problem of college affordability is recognized on both sides of the aisle, but sadly, most efforts to abate the problem – such as increasing federal subsidies – have only exacerbated it. Walker wants to try a different approach for taxpayers and students in his state.
