I have never understood why our southern border is so special that it needs a big beautiful wall. It seems to me that most of the terrorist attacks that hae been thwarted in recent years came over the northern border.
After all, all those canadian actors and comedians are taking our jobs.
As it moved thru the various committees in both the House and the Senate, the ACA was repeatedly amended and given yes votes by multiple Republican members of both the House and the Senate. Many of those Republican changes remain in the bill to this day.
Yes, on the final vote, the Democrats shoved it thru without any Republican votes but to say that it was passed without a single Republican vote and no input to the process is misleading at best and falls under Mark Twain's definition of "Statistics"
"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics."
Senator Susan Collins voted yes on the ACA several times in order to move it forward.
Tell us again how not one single republican voted for the ACA
Debbie, I did not "attack" Fred. What I did was criticize his comment about Margie Huron "seizing control" and being "presumptive". That kind of dialog is not helpful IMO.
I also called for an issues based discussion instead of talk about individuals. Along that line I would call on the board to discuss their disagreements and work towards votes that can win a majority of the board. When they cannot even come to a consensus about who their leadership is, it does not bode well for their ability to make good decisions for the children they are supposed to be educating.
Fred writes "It seems very presumptive to seize control of the board on the first day after being elected."
Yes, getting your fellow board members to vote you into a leadership position is very presumptive. Come on Fred, not even you believe that Mrs. Huron did something unethical to get votes for the position of Board President and to imply that she did something nefarious to gain that vaunted role diminishes any argument or point you are trying to make.
Are there serious disagreements within the membership of the board? Yes, at this point we can assume that there are. The real question is how to move forward and throwing about inaccurate accusations about the people you disagree with is not the way forward IMO.
How about we try to discuss issues instead of individuals.
James got this one right. It should not matter what color you are or who you love. Experience and agendas should be more important.
Our leaders too Ken. I support you in this.
Open borders Harvey? Yes these killer opiates are coming in on delivery trucks to City Market, Safeway, Wal-Mart and Walgrens. Your ignorance on the subject of addiction shows every time you post your opinions on the subject.
I said before the election and repeat here now. I respect the decision of the American people. I hope that President Trump will work for all of us and that we as a country will come together and support one another.
I said before that the true measure of what Brita did would be measured by the final numbers. It would appear that she stuck to her guns and got Peabody to pay what was owed without any special treatment. Nice job.
Why private lawyers required and why/how a public official allowed to sign confidential contracts are separate questions regardless of who paid the final bill. There is still some smoke here that needs to be looked into. Treasurer Horn still needs to learn that she works for the people of this county and owes them a full accounting of her reasoning and actions on our behalf. Transparency demands nothing less.
