    I overheard a guy who someone told me was close to Gov. Walker, that his next thing he going to push for is transferring the cost of busing the school kids to the teachers since it's about proving them with an oppertunity to have a job, so they should bear the cost of getting the kids to the schools.

    The state pays for the busing in MN?

    Where I'm located, the individual school districts pay for that. Always have.

    As heresay goes, pretty ridiculous. You should carry a video camera with you at all times! :lmao:

    So you have no evidence, but don't have problems making claims based on hearsay from someone who may or may not actually exist?

    Sounds very responsible. There are ways of inquiring about it and bringing up the topic in order to find out the truth if you really were concerned about it. The way you do it seems like you just want to create gossip.

    you should have stopped at "I heard a guy..."
    DO you have any clue how preposterous that is?
    This is typical. Once a sacred cow comes under attack the chicken little conspiracy theorists allow themselves to go into the frenzy fearing some kind of radical precedent has been set.
    You should have forgotten this guy 30 seconds after you heard what he said...
    No back to THIS universe..
    Ok, let's suppose for a moment this ridiculous notion came to pass. How long do you think it would take for an army of attorneys to flood the courts with challenges and lawsuits?.
    Stop it....

    I think this is supposed to be sarcasm, irony, satire.

    If it is, don't give up your day job to be a writer.

    I've lived in 4 states....SC and NC , the buses are owned and operated by the State. In NJ school bus service is privatized. Each district or municipality has a contract with a private bus company. In NY the buses are operated by the respective districts.
