I see no mention of Kaepernick's problem with the law.Did it just go away?

What a publicity stunt. There is simply no way these two bozos can experience what it's like to live on a minimum wage for a week with this caper.When in DC Ryan spends more on cab fare than a person earns in a year on minimum wage.As to Strickland, he could alway go to the emergency room for his health care like others on the minimum wage are forced to do.The two have never visited a food pantry for groceries or had pick up used clothing to outfit them and their families.Politicians are so out of touch with the rest of us.Now living on minimum wage for a year would impress me and really give them a taste of the hard times but that ain't gonna happen.Politicians are so good at spreading the wealth why don't they spread a little of their own and stay out of my pockets.

Unfortunately those who have no skin in the game will never respect programs like this to better their community.I'm afraid that if you plant it they will come and destroy it regardless of fencing and cameras.Look how affective the border fence has been in keeping out those who want in.Good luck with this project.I'm afraid you'll need it.

Nice that we knew about this ahead of time instead of after the fact.

Did R.J. Reynolds tie this man up and force smoke down his lungs?Where is personal responsibilityWhy must someone else always be responsible for the bad things that result from our bad choices?

Law enforcement on official business should be able to park adjacent to the courthouse. Handicapped placarded vehicles occupied by handicapped persons not just others taking advantage of the privilege should be able to park adjacent to the courthouse.All others who are for the most part parked for the day should have to park elsewhere.We pay public officials well and they should be able to foot the bill for parking their personal vehicle.Government owned non emergency vehicles should be provided parking other than at the curb of the courthouse.As for the security concerns of the judges, no judge has been assaulted near the courthouse during my lifetime.

I'm with Ed FitzGerald.Who would want a 5th generation farmer who has been very successful and grown his family farming into a million dollar business having any say in farm policies.I'd much rather have a farmer who is struggling and barely getting by with his farming practices be the person who sets our next generation's farm policies.

And the deer. Let's not forget about the deer killing because they were eating the foliage and destroying the atmosphere at Mill Creek Park.

Getting caught does have a way of shaming you.This seems to be a very light sentence for a judge who violated the public trust.Squeaky is throwing others under the bus to save himself but can we trust his word this time?
