Good for the students! I'm glad to see them take a stand for what they believe and feel is right. Maybe there is some hope for this country. The political scum (both parties) in this country can't seem to stand for what they believe or anything else for that matter. They just want to enrich themselves on the backs of taxpayers.5 months ago
Let's be clear! Sheriff Joe has never met a camera or a microphone that he didn't fall instantly in love with. But no more so than the President we also just re-elected. Politicans, Joe and Barrack (and all the other politican scum) treat voters like we're stupid. Biggest problem is that we keep proving them correct. And as to immigration, we absolutely need reasonable comprehensive reform but lets get over the idea that they all want to be Americans. Seems to me that during the protests, they don't carry U S flags but Mexican flags. And Mexico tends to get off scot free. The Mexicans I know are good, hard-working people wanting to support their families. The government in Mexico is worse than the U S government (and that's hard to do)5 months ago
Start the discussion with how the existing funds could be used much more efficiently! We have heard consistently for the last 20 years that we need to give more to education AND WE HAVE but during that same period, the quality of education has gone down even more than the funding has gone up. The mayors can play an important role but it will have to involve a lot more than just another demand for more money to throw at the eduction unions.6 months ago
First, $250,000 makes a couple comfortable, NOT rich these days. Any tax rate increase should be on those at $1 million and above. Second, the day after any tax increase on the "rich", the rallying cry from the unions will be to have the "rich" pay their "fair share". IT NEVER ENDS. I'm an independent that believes that ALL politicans are 3 steps below the common street prostitute and that goes for union LEADERSHIP as well. It makes sense that we hold elections in November as that is traditionally the time we pick out our turkeys.6 months ago
