I'll agree to disagree. Yes, I'm quite conservative and very proud of it. I have morals and live by them. Lessons in trust aren't where many of our problems come from. Destructive cultural behavior largely is.
Pretending this can all be remedied by "perceiving" certain cultures are good isn't going to solve anything. Some demographics drastically stand out from the rest, so why not accept that and appreciate those who deviate positively from that culture?
Until the culture changes, nothing else will.

I wouldn't feel too bad about Lindsey Bruce getting hurt. He raped and killed a little 5 year old girl.

My comment about your liberal stance came from your statement "We all could use a lesson on how to use trust."
Michael Brown was shot because he was being dangerously aggressive with the police. He just got done beating a store owner as he robbed them, which is what put him on their radar to begin with. What part of his behavior warranted "trust"?

@Billdog - spoken like a true liberal. Agreed, there are good in all skin colors, but cultures are a very different story.
If someone walks like a thug, talks like a thug, acts like a thug, do you think it's reasonable to give them the benefit of the doubt? Profiling works most of the time, so why ignore those basic instincts?

Let's see him try that stuff around here. We know how to hide bodies very well.

Remind me again why unions are necessary...

"We’re paying higher, but it’s a good quality of water."
Not really. Maybe you should mention how your friends and family are financially benefiting from it in order for them to get a clearer picture of why you want to leave the contract as it is.
While you're at it, how about giving Robert Marino a big lump on the head for taking away a lot of the credit we get on our Niles Income Taxes if we have to work outside the city borders? After all, it's not like well-paying jobs in Niles are plentiful.
Instead of burdening the taxpayers more and more, how about making the needed cuts and give us a break?

Maybe they should consider a 72-year waiting period instead.

If you don't know what everyone else is laughing at, then they're laughing at you. Congrats on the idiot award.

Imagine how this would have gone if he were elected back in 2008 to be a Judge in the Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.
