Political correctness has gone way overboard. Some of these people should get a life instead of getting there little feelings hurt.

If the Port has all of this revenue rolling in and fields to harvest? Why are they subsidized by the taxpayers? What am I missing?

Obviously this is more of the "We have to pass it to know what's in it?" Obamacare rollout. Confusion personified.

This should have been exploited before this legislation was even passed. If your on Medicaid - you don't care. If your on company insurance you already know what your limits are. If your on Obamacare you have the normal (approx.) $6000.00 dollar deductible to be paid before your insurance even pays on any procedure. The Hospital or Clinic at the time of a procedure has already briefed you on your out-of-pocket expenses.

At that point, unless if you have a bankroll, you will decide whether to go through with the procedure or wait to save the money or take out a loan. Not much of a choice for some people but if you have the money you can enjoy the luxuries of living. It's sad to think that people thought this would be the chance to get everyone on a health insurance plan. Surprise - Surprise . . . . . . . . . .

Yes Sir - The US has Iran right by the throat-latch and we're still running that red line for Syria? Really! I must have missed something? Iran is still making Nukes and Syria is in a war mode.

No arguments but just for drill I pulled out my assessors statement for this year and this is the stats: total school taxes for the year $1171.09 which computes to $97.59 monthly in turn is $6.93/$1000.00 before any additional bonds added.

Numbers are just that - numbers.

No - not at all - but just because I have questions does not constitute that I am a whiny property tax payer. :) Trust me I know it goes both ways.


namvet60 1 week, 1 day ago on Letter - Burden of funding schools is shared by all

Is this the typical letter to bring the masses to a yes vote? I'm actually tired of the overbearing terminology being used in some of these letters. To be positive is to exude confidence but the negative approach breeds animosity.
