Grothman to MPS: Leave Arizona Alone and

Focus on Solving the Problems in Your Own School District

Today, Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) told the Milwaukee Public School Board to focus on the quality of their schools and stop second guessing other states’ laws. The Milwaukee School Board is considering waging economic warfare against the State of Arizona because of their new immigration law by boycotting Arizona’s goods and services.

Newspaper articles in the past month once more showed Milwaukee as one of the worst urban school districts in the country as determined by the National Assessment of Educational Progress. Dave Gordon, superintendent of the schools in Sacramento, said Milwaukee’s lack of achievement stemmed from its lack of urgency for a coherent plan for reading.

“It’s scary – MPS kids can’t read but the MPS Board is going to use its billion dollar budget to stop doing business with Arizona and instead transfer those sales to companies in Mexico, China, India, or other states,” said Grothman. “Wisconsin’s taxpayers are flooding money into Milwaukee which spends about 15% more per child than the state average, and we hear stories about high school graduates unable to read. I hope more citizens, parents, and high school students would question this action as an unconstitutional interference with interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”

“After reading about MPS grand plan to boycott Arizona, I frankly would be scared to send any child into a school district run by such intolerant, mean-spirited radicals,” said Grothman. “It’s time to focus on getting MPS students to read, not throwing Americans living in Arizona out of work.”

“It’s clear the State Legislature must again focus on the governance of MPS in January,” said Grothman.

  1. The Tea Bag Party are just “haters not debaters” or as others have dubbed them “screamers not dreamers”, with their failed attempts at stopping Healthcare reform, they say they respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors (no one voted for this crazy) who only cares about getting elected Governor, on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster.

    Brewer signed into law;

    1. S.B. 1070,
    2. No permit conceal weapons law,
    3. The famous Birthers law,
    4. Banning Ethnic studies law,

    5. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
    6. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

    7. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
    8. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

    Well Arizona, you can boycott new holidays and keep passing crazy laws and the rest of us will continue to challenged them in a court of law and continue to add cities to our Boycott of your state.

    I real cannot believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (war ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right! No one voted for you for Governor, yet you keep listening to the tiny brains of the crazies and signing into law everything that comes into their feeble minds, it only make you look dumb, stupid or racist, or maybe all three.

    As for the Tea Bag Party, their phony patriotism is sickening; they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, energy (remember Cheney’s secret meetings with oil companies where loosening regulation and oversight were sealed), climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions).
