There is ONE solution that nobody is talking about and that is affordable to everyone. Allow CCW at schools. Allow teachers to carry. This won't cost us a dime. Teachers who choose to carry will do it concealed. Janitors and administrators who choose to carry will do it concealed. Parents who choose to carry... will do it concealed. I already know teachers that want to carry and be ready to defend themselves and their students in the unfortunate event that a mass murder comes around. Take a lesson from Israel on this one. Gun Free Zones kill.... not guns.4 months ago
It is actually fascinating to watch progressives discuss the issues of the day. You are right Mike.... the Tea Party is an amazing and powerful influence. You should get it right, however, who and what the Tea Party is. The Tea Party are your neighbors.... grassroots Moms and Dads and children whose goal is to restore government to its proper role. You mentioned a few things.... the reduction in funding charitable organizations. The proper role of government is to NOT get into the role of spending other people's money for the sake of their charities. Private money and plenty of it bolster these organizations as they should. You also misrepresent "funds" set aside to create jobs and attract businesses to the city. You also about cuts in bloated school budgets as if it were a bad thing. As a person who has worked with school boards and their budgets in the past.... the waste in these programs are mind boggling. A school district is not about the benefits and desires of the teacher's union.... it is about educating children. Recently it has been a breeding ground to develop young misguided activists... see TUSD. It is time the schools get back to educating and get out of political agendas. 8 months ago

Alpine Valley Bread used to have US Citizens working for them. Somebody should ask the owner why he got rid of the guy running his bakery for 10+ years? I happen to know he got rid of him because he didn't speak Spanish. Jul 14, 2011
The first thing they need to do is get off the nipple. Then assimilate into society. Their nations are the poster children of Socialism, entitlements, and dependency.Jun 11, 2011
Well.... it is over and it appears the big government union progressive lap dogs have been booted out. Now... time to cut some government and some taxes and get on with some honest city management. May 17, 2011
