Do the Kwanzaa principles include following the rules of society? Do they include doing what the cop tells you to do?

Some similarities with other recent notable incidents, among them, an airsoft gun being mistaken as a real gun. No mention in this story if the orange tip that identifies it as not a real gun had been removed, as the Cleveland kid did. But even so, there's a notable difference: The cops said "put your hands up" and the guy did. Lo and behold, nobody was shot, nobody was killed.
Is there a lesson here?

When I see an article touting how the unemployment levels have dropped to wondrous lows in this area, my first thought is that it's because people have simply given up. They don't qualify for unemployment, or have exhausted it. And they're either living on handouts, selling drugs, or otherwise existing "off the grid."

Lip service. When charter schools have to meet or exceed the requirements of public schools, with no loopholes, I'll believe he's committed to better schools and better-educated students.
Now before the pro-charter, anti-public employee crowd starts, for every top notch charter school you can name, there are a handful of sub-standard ones that churn out undisciplined, uneducated kids with no hope of bettering themselves.

11 paragraphs, and we still don't know what they're doing. Are they just doing work on the shoulder, or are they re-decking like they did at 224/680?

Ah, another Sunday, another "I hate YSU" rant from deSouza. Apparently, there's nothing else politically noteworthy going on in the region, week after week, so the political "writer" has to use the same subject, over and over.

Not even one mention of the mayor's name? Is Infante on some sort of protected list or something? What's his salary? Maybe Niles can garnish the wages of Infante and his crew to make up the lost funds. You know - punish the people responsible, not the underlings who just go to work and do what they're told.

Reality, topper. Reality.

I've said it before - this should have been settled BEFORE the work started. Now, Austintown gets to supply the cops and fire/EMS, Austintown's roads and infrastructure take an extra beating, and all they get is the runaround.
Drone - they COULD actually deliver the $500K. They choose not to.
I see nothing wrong with Schiavoni's idea - a 50/50 split between the two parties (who are raking in the cash). But neither side is even willing to go halves.
Austintown should refuse to have anything to do with the racino. And any tax abatements should now be rescinded.

I'm naturally distrustful of any "private" deal that any elected official unveils with no explanations. And I'm growing more distrustful as time passes with no information being released.
What do both the US and Cuba expect to get out of this deal? What's in it for us? What's in it for them?
Cuba has long-established ties with Russia. What happens to those ties? What happens to US-Russian relations?
Why was this deal kept secret?
I could go on . . .
