Sorry. I'm just not willing to pay higher taxes for higher teacher salaries. They do just fine. They knew the wages were not get rich type when they decided to teach. And as for oil money? That needs to go towards fixing the infrastructure its wore out. After that we will see.

so i suppose the only solution would be to raise our already insane property taxes once again? then if we raise city employee wages again, will that mean the potholes, etc will finally get fixed? it seems the majority of our tax dollars to go wages and benefits and if anything is left over, maybe fix a pothole or two. i'm tired of paying for public employees that retire in their early 50's, thanks to the taxpayer.

Let me see, libs were in charge in Washington in the 90's and the budget was doing well. Republicans got in charge with Bush and the boys and the economy trashed...Yep, changie, you sure got that economy thingy working.

Gee changie, did not the republicans help for wall street/banks almost bankrupt our country. Didn't the republicans say they could handle the economy better? Better than what? Complete destruction by the obstructionist Republican party? Yep, you sure have it right... It is wonderful to have such an intelligent Republican winger on board....not.

Regurgitate the right wing conspiracy theories and lies, changie. You talk about someone who shoots his mouth off with false information and hatred, you are completely lacking in common sense, intelligence, and reasonable thinking. Why don't you lay the facts on the table if you have them. With a congress that has obstructed our governmental process for years, a racism and hatred bent right wing media, and absolutely no direction from your side, you still bloviate. Come on, changie, tell us all the facts and forget your false charges. Oh, that is right. False charges are all you have. Sad.

Bill Gates has 80 billion dollars. Warren Buffett has 39 billion dollars.

All North Dakota has is 1.6 billion dollars and it's not that much compared to what Bill and Warren have.

Ask Bill Gates or Warren Buffett for some money, they have plenty.

"With a congress that has obstructed our governmental process for years, a racism and hatred bent right wing media, and absolutely no direction from your side..."

All this depends upon a certain perspective.

Is the right 100% correct 100% of the time? The short answer is no. But bloviating (interesting word) can be done just as well by the left. Ditto that for name-calling.

The HeadStart program began in 1965, and today many of those children are now the political and civic leaders in Detroit. How well is that cradle to grave nanny state system working?
