Really hotdog? As a woman, I am not a pre-existing condition, i did not and have not paid 50% more than my husband, I did pay maybe 15% more, but that was due to possible pregnancies. I have never been denied coverage on any procedures. I will vote Republican, I shouldn't have to pay for anyones irresponsible behavior i.e. birthcontrol pills, abortion. I agree that teachers are only teaching to pass a test, but NoChild Left Behind was an attempt by Bush to work with the Democrats and if I am not mistaken, endorsed by Teddy Kennedy. If teachers were allowed to actually teach instead of having to meet state mandates, then our scores would go up. Parents have responsibilites in their child's education too. Too much "education " money goes for fluff, not books, teacher salaries but for non essentials. Look at the private schools and see how they educate students at a much lower cost per student. BTW I am in the middle class, pay more than my "fair share" of taxes and I am tired of supporting those who will not work, but think they are entitiled to my money (and Social Security is not an entitlement - I, my parents, your parents paid into this program, and it was the Democrats that voted to take the money and put in IOUs)

I too live on Valley and am ashamed of the attitude of my fine upstanding neighbors, especially the recent past chariman of the board at the Anchorage whose name was on the petition to save our neighborhood from this "blight". What better way to show our love for Christ than to show love to the least of these, to be His hands and feet. Again, I say shame on you
