JUST IN: a progressive win in Wisconsin.

because anyone who can drive a stake the least little bit into the heart of Betsy DeVos deserves all the support we can give them.

10. "Betsy":The crappy life of being a bored old billionaire harpy

Kids take this book home and read it to your family to get proficient at reading.

Hey DeVos you bide your time deconstructing public education for god knows why. Is it really about money? Or, does your ennui of super wealth make you yearn to set upon ever one of your whims. Anyway, get another hobby.
