An Idiotic Proposal From a Wisconsin Stae Legislator

(Do I even need to explain why this idiotic and avoiding the issue?)

MADISON, Wis. - In the wake of school shootings in Wisconsin, Colorado and Pennsylvania during the last two weeks, a state legislator says he plans to introduce legislation that would allow teachers, principals, administrators and other school personnel to carry concealed weapons.

Rep. Frank Lasee, a Republican, said Wednesday that, while his idea may not be politically correct, it has worked effectively in other countries.

"To make our schools safe for our students to learn, all options should be on the table," he said. "Israel and Thailand have well-trained teachers carrying weapons and keeping their children safe from harm. It can work in Wisconsin."

As for calling you it was to give you the results from our latest corporate adventure. They made all mid-upper mgmt. take some tests, critical thinking and psychological profiling. i was never a believer in what I felt was mumbo-jumbo assesments from random questions but, DAMN!!!!, they were in the 90% accurate range. It was kind of spooky.

My director did admit to one thing. He said in the 125 of these he read I was the only one that actually had the words "politically incorrect" used in their eval! BAWAHAHAHAHA
