another republicjerk ploy to discredit public schools, and "sway" thinking to privates and charters. How can a school system be scored as excellent with distinction, and next year have "f"s? All Bull sh$t!!!

Kurt W: While talking about perks in public service......... How bout some private perks......... Bonuses, buying of shares, vacations on the "company", which is a corporate tax write off, GIVIING of shares to kiss asses, who pays in the end for that?? WE also!!! Its called price increases. I didn't hear you bitchen in 2008!!! Who caused the near fatal crash?? Police? Sanitation workers?? I don't think so. Sounds like you applied for a public job when no one in the private sector wanted you, you didn't get it, and your pissed?? You chose your path. Detroit was full of greed, but not all was the employees you so blame for. This BS goes on in the Private sector also. they call it ceo buy outs when they get caught dirty and "step down" Oh buy the way, when public employees retire, they don't get the Millions to "step down" with the usual millions in stock options that drain private companies bankrupt. so, quit your bitterness of being overlooked and know facts instead of your opinions!

Parley............ Im sorry, you seem to me to be more of the problem than the solution... Just because I don't agree with you, Im now worse than a middle eastern terrorist? Whats next: Punishment for going against your views? You see where im going with this???? Most likely not. What happened was indeed tragic. The jury spoke. If justice was not served, the ultimate judge will decide in the end, don't you agree Parlay?? Maybe that guy did skirt justice, Maybe not. We all get ours in the end.

Parlay: Have YOU ever said anything racist about whites, Mexicans, Italians, Latinos, etc.? You bet you have! You failed your test. I think its lookie in the mirror time, eh?

V. Rogers house was fully engulfed by fire BEFORE firefighters arrived. Also, before you start running your mouth, remember that there were 12 other fires going at the SAME time around the south side. Did you want firefighters to die for a vacant, fully burning, uncared house for decades??? Is this how you view the firefighters who let this historic house "burn" down?? Get your facts straight before you self-invoke your thoughts on a public forum!

As I wrote the last post, I came to the conclusion that I know of more than one female in their dept. who can do the job! again, TRAIN FOR IT!! Put the work in and rewards will follow!!!Do not expect anyone to hand you anything!!!

There is no such thing as an " easier" fire for females, or for anyone else for that matter. The fire ground is a hard, dangerous place, and not a place for the weaker, less qualified individuals, regardless of sex, race, color, or creed. If a female, or anyone else for that matter wants to pass a physical to obtain one of these jobs, the answer is simple: TRAIN FOR IT!!! Weights, cardio, cross fit......... no excuses. You want it bad enough? where there is a will, their is a way. You got an excuse, you shouldn't be there. period. I know a particular female in Youngstown fire dept. who can "hang" with her male co workers all day long. How? . She trains physically for the job. No excuses!
