Milwaukee County currently pays nearly $300 per day for juvenile delinquents housed at the Copper Lake Girls School and the Lincoln Hills School for Boys. The locations present problems for family visits and have been under scrutiny for alleged indiscretions. County Executive Chris Abele has made the decision to move the Milwaukee inmates to a lower-priced facility in downtown Milwaukee: the Pfister.

Said Abele, “We can put two children per room into the Pfister for an average of $200 per night. That includes maid service and a pretty nice room.” The Pfister has 307 guest rooms, which means it could easily accommodate the young troubled people from the detention centers. For example, Lincoln Hills only has 120 beds, with roughly 90% filled by Milwaukee youth. At two per room, 200 or so Milwaukee girls and boys could be housed in 100 of the Pfister’s rooms for $100 per night.

Abele suggests that the county provide $80 per kid per day in food credits for on-site dining. This means that the youngsters would have to learn how to use budgeting skills in order to eat each day. While one inmate might want Maryland Crab Cakes at the Mason Street Grill, he will learn that the $17.50 might be more wisely spent on $16 Herb Seared Chicken at The Cafe at the Pfister. Perhaps a room-service Brioche French Toast for $11, or an $18 Zaffiro’s “Cracker Style Crust” pizza to share. Subtle laughter at the irony, perhaps.

According to Abele, the rules will be simple: don’t leave. “These kids have a chance to experience the good life. Would you ever leave the Pfister if someone offered to let you live there?” With a full-service spa, indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, and wifi, the answer for most of us would be a resounding “No!” School will be provided through an online charter school and can be worked on in the guest rooms or in the lobby.

Abele believes the atmosphere will be good for the young men and women, and out-of-town notables, especially the Hollywood elite, will appreciate the diversity and culture provided by young men and women attempting to be reformed at one of Milwaukee’s most notable landmarks. In addition, the youngsters will have the opportunity to intern as employees in the hospitality field. Management has said the inmates will not be allowed to interact with guests or enter occupied rooms to provide maid services, but they can learn to change light bulbs, vacuum the lobby, and deliver food to guests. Wages earned can be used for spa treatments and, extra food credits, or convenience items from the Pfister Gift Shop or Boutique B’Lou (fine women’s apparel).

Family members can jump on the 30 and visit in the lobby, but inmates will not be able to invite anyone up to their rooms. “It’s kind of like Shangri-la,” Abele suggested. Some say it’s more like the Hotel California, where inmates can check out any time they want but can never leave. However, even those people would not actually leave if given a sentence to stay. The County Executive’s office has been overrun with applications to work as floor monitors / RAs, who can leave for up to 8 hours per day in rotating shifts. Even Milwaukee Police officers have volunteered. If this Milwaukee Experiment works, similar programs may be established at other top-notch hotels, like the Trump Hotels that currently have empty rooms and plummeting bookings, according to NBC. President Trump would not comment on the idea, but he has said that inner cities are a disaster, so pairing two disasters could make sense.

by Dan Brubus We’ve won against the big Union bosses and fat-cat public school teachers! The rest is spitting in their eyes and pissing on their graves. Some of you teachers are calling the latest measure ironic, but most of us don’t care or care to know what ironic means. I make triple what the priciest greedy teacher ever made and I don’t know what irony is. That goes to show that I’m smart, like Scott Walker, and teachers are dumb, like teenagers. The newest proposal to relax teaching requirements is simply brilliant because it’s wasn’t even on anyone’s radar. Total decoy, thrown in for those high-school-in-a-box companies that want to take over MPS. Station a few minimum-wage guards at the door. Sure, great if it passes, but the idea was take some of the heat off the other proposals. The ones that rip the guts out of school districts after we’ve already hijacked the greedy teachers’ will to fight. No limits on vouchers. The eventual goal is no limits for any income or place or anything. Blank check for mom and dad. Send the kids to a religious school if you want government cheese for God. Send them to Brookfield Academy if you want to spend an extra ten thousand over the voucher. The day is soon on this one, and in the same way Walmart put the local shops out of business, the same will happen in education. Walschool. The drain on the public schools won’t put them completely out of business right away, so a few measures have been inserted in the state budget to help them along. One is to allow all private and home schooled kids play sports with the public schools. Hey, their parents already pay big taxes to overpaid teachers, so their kids should get some kind of benefit. Besides, a lot of public schools are having trouble fielding teams because parents don’t want to send their kids to poor institutions, so they’ll need the players. The budget will end Chapter 220 and SAGE, both measures that tried to fix failing schools through smaller class sizes and integration. Many reputable studies have shown that smaller class sizes do nothing to help learning and that multiculturalism is just a myth. The expansion of charter schools would also be great if the new teacher licensing proposal does pass, but it’s not really necessary, since public school employees make about double what their former co-workers who have been laid off since Act 10 will take to do the same job, so it means more Walschools. Efficient, fiscally-responsible Walschools. Teaching beyond the Common Core and its lies. Teaching America how it’s done in Wisconsin. Showing the nation who’s driving the pickup if Scott Walker becomes the next president. And then it’s on to a national standard for teacher licensure. Maybe a new college standard, too. GED? Teach Women’s Studies. Middle school dropout? Teach economics. The point is it doesn’t matter. I went to college for four years, partied it up, got a job with a wealthy family member making wealth for the wealthy, and that all any of us need. I mean, Scott Walker, one of the great leaders of our time, couldn’t handle the rigors of college so he went on to become rich and powerful instead. That’s the American way, unwanted immigrants and those who would take away my right to own an assault rifle to protect my stockpiled food cache.

Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost joked that Tinder's move to make 37 gender identity options available was why Hillary lost the election. A Romper article made the argument, in majestically ivory towerish tones, that it's unfair to blame the results of the election on "a hurting, marginalized community with a history of collective trauma and erasure from the national discourse, staggering murder rates, and housing, employment, and legislative discriminations at every turn." EXACTLY Jost's point from the outset. 90% of Americans think 37 gender identity options is moronic. HALF of those people still voted for Hillary. 98% of Americans think pretentious articles written by LGBTQ+&# advocates are way more annoying than Donald Trump. 1% did not understand the question.
