Ginny attacks Holy Angels' principal, Cabrini's reverend and St. John's pastor - all in one post!

If anyone needed further evidence of just how far out on the wacko fringe Ginny is, just click here. Ginny, you realize that if you take out all the West Bend residents who aren't afraid of homosexuals, who don't think gay kids should be bullied, don't think magic should be taught in science class, thinks a charter school proposal shouldn't be a cut-and-paste job and don't think taxpayer dollars should go to a school that teaches magic as fact, you will end up with like, a dozen citizens left, right?

Anyone think maybe her whole blog was hacked in an attempt to make her look like a 9/11 Truther? Dan, can you please ask her? I know she doesn't come here too often ;)

Oh and Ginny, why didn't you post video of Mary Weigand talking last night? I thought I saw you taping her as well. Can you please post it? It was flipping amazing.

Common sense FTW!

It was great to see the community come together last night and call the proposed charter school what it is - a baptist school in public school clothing. Everyone from regular-joe parents to Mike Sternig from Holy Angels came out to call it like it is. I really can't wait for Ginny to post her video from last night because, holy crap, Mary Weignad was ON IT! Enough with spending tax dollars on stuff like this. If there really was a market for Bruce to start a school he should invest his own money, not come looking to the already tapped out taxpayers of West Bend looking for religious welfare.

And shame on you Tim Stephanski, Dave Weignad and Randy Marquardt for trying to slide this by the taxpayers of West Bend. How dumb do you think we are?

Well done, West Bend! You got'r done!

This is for you Ginny

Please watch with an open heart.

Finally someone who makes sense on the charter school issue

Posted by Charlie Hillman over on B&S:

"This is a parochial Baptist school.
One can make the very legitimate argument that the money should really follow the child and should be able to be used at any parochial school. If that were true, I’d much rather my tax money go to Cabrini, St. John’s, or Holy Angels, who are not only more representative of our community, but also have proven themselves capable of providing a good education at a bargain price.
I also think we don’t need another organization that uses public money but has no accountability to the taxpayers. The governance of this school could not be recalled, unelected, or subjected to open records.
Any chance this can be put to the voters in some sort of referendum?"

If there is a market for a parochial Baptist school, why doesn't the church invest its own money in one? Where are all our CSCWC with their "free market" signs now?

Proposed charter school curriculum would include "Intelligent Design"

So here we go. According to the paper "Ted Caucutt, curriculum consultant for Crossroads Academy, said Intelligent Design would also be taught, but only along with other theories of origin...".

Also from the paper today: "Christian themes appear in reading and language arts, as well as social studies... Proposed reading includes "A Certain Small Shepherd" for third graders and "Joel a Boy in Galilee" for seventh graders. Subject matter covered in social studies includes "Religion and the Rise of Christianity," "The Roman Church," and "The Heathens Become Christians" in seventh grade".

I'm sure Ginny will fight to make books by ex-Christians available too, right?

Ginny Maziarka just can't stop!

In a pretty much incomprehensible post on her blog today, Ginny (in a leap that would make Evel Knievel proud) jumps from a story about someone soliciting sex in a library bathroom in Washington State to how the "West Bend Library Board "stick[s] it" to the parents of West Bend's children"

Ginny in her own words

Now, I'm assuming this wasn't posted during an hour when Ginny's other Facebook account was hacked, but I'm sure Dan Kleinman will be here shortly to claim otherwise. Her post below is more interesting than ever given the current debate about the proposed charter school. Ginny is after all, besties with Mary Weigand, her husband and school board member Dave Weigand and a huge Tim Stepanski fan. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Reader Submissions

I've gotten a bunch of emails lately asking me to address certain topics. Fact is I'm busy and can't address everything I'd like to. That said, I'm more than happy to post guest submissions. Just email your piece to fearandloathinginwestbend@gmail.com and I'll post it.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster comes to West Bend

Excellent column today by Mark Peterson illustrating the folly of the proposed charter school in West Bend. Read it here.

Why do these people even act like they care about education? They call anyone with a college education an ivory-tower elitist...
