    This is very serious. The LIRC chair who reviews legal decisions from the Equal Rights Division does not have law degree. But her assistants have law degrees. One should wonder how a person without law degree review legal matters and supervise employees with law degrees and experience. Wisconsin is in big trouble. But that explains why Gov. Walker wanted to do away with universities in Wisconsin. His reasoning may be right. If he is now supervising lawyers and people with degrees, why should Wisconsin have universities? Next time Walker may appoint a college drop-out as justice to the Wisconsin Supreme court. But I can tell you having a university degree is worth the trouble. It stabilizes your life and you tend to better oneself and the world. I am not surprised to read in papers and magazines that Wisconsin government is most corrupt in the country. You know what to do in November this year.

    I do not think Georgia is happy at LIRC. Issues have been raised why she was appointed to supervise lawyers when she does not have a degree and is a college drop-out like Walker. To be a lawyer takes to know many fundamentals including published case laws and actual training on the job. Georgia has none of those. Georgia is being paid tax dollars for doing nothing. I hope news people will dig into reasons why Walker appointed Georgia there. It is surprising news people are not talking. They may be part of the conspiracy to keep Georgia at LIRC.
