"we all know what the Democratic agenda is and that is to bankrupt this country to turn it into a socialist nation. Obama and the democrats main goal is to destroy this country." Is that true or did you hear it on FOX News? LOL!

do your homework, KIA. "It's rather ironic that this misinformation campaign was paid for with our tax dollars — the same tax dollars Issa says he wants to protect." http://www.savethepostoffice.com/bailout-bs-darrell-issa%E2%80%99s-misinformation-campaign-about-postal-retirement-funds

you've got that right! but that's just one small piece of the overall Republican agenda to dismantle the federal government entirely. If they get their way, everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) that is currently owned or administered or held in public trust by the government will be privatized. So, you can do nothing and kiss it goodbye (your Social Security, pensions, national parks, Post Office, public schools, libraries, roads, etc) or you can vote the @#$%ards out in 2014.

whodat 1 year, 8 months ago on School police chief: Security a top issue

In at least one high school, parents have been known to bypass the office and go directly to the teacher's classroom to demand an on-the-spot parent conference. Never mind that class is in session. Never mind that the protocol is to sign in first in the office. Never mind that parents must schedule a parent conference with the parent facilitator. Oh nooooo, we can't follow the rules, can we, because that would inconvenience us. I blame the administration who can't even be bothered to put a sign on the front door to notify visitors of the expected protocols of on-campus visits. School safety is a joke in the DCSS---for students, teachers, and staff.

I didn't say Exxon "earned" $10K, I said it was accepting government subsidies. "– Exxon received an estimated $600 million in annual tax breaks. It paid just a 13 percent federal tax rate. (on earnings of $35 BILLION)"

"For 20 years, under Reagan and the Bushes, the national debt increased compared to GDP every single year." http://zfacts.com/p/318.html

"Historian Bruce Bartlett, former domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan, has called Starve the Beast "the most pernicious fiscal doctrine in history", and blames it for the increase in US government debt since the 1980s.[18]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starve_t...

why is it you Neo-cons always harp on poor people on social welfare? why don't any of you have any complaints about the subsidies paid to corporations that make billions in profits? in the time it takes you to bitch about some poor person buying a cart of groceries, Exxon has walked away with $10,000. Betcha don't hear about that on "fair-and-balanced Faux News. So, you still want to talk about people who don't need it taking government handouts?

best thing for RQ, in my opinion, is for it to become part of ASU in some way, so that it can continue its educational function. Considering our geography, it's way past time that ASU offer diploma programs for conservation biologists, environment and sustainability, hydrology, and water conservation management. These are growing fields and will become vitally important in the years to come. Vision, people!

whodat 1 year, 10 months ago on Massacre prompts security reviews

Well, like most security measures, it sounds good on paper but in the school where I work, the plan is sorely lacking. There are multiple ways for anyone to enter the building, aided by “helpful” students who are so naïve as to think nothing of opening a “badge-accessed” outer door to strangers. None of the schools have line-of-sight monitoring of who enters and exits, relying on closed-circuit TVs in the office. Offices are very busy places and no one really pays attention to the TVs. There are signs on most front entrances that tell visitors they must report to the office first (to sign in and get a visitor badge) but you would not believe the number of times a parent has knocked on my classroom door, wanting an impromptu conference, without following this procedure. And no one stops them because they are not aware of the person being on campus! Look, anyone who is intent on murder and mayhem can do the deed at just about any school. The bloviating by Fowler and Conley to the contrary, the security just isn’t there.
