Andy, do you understand how the opinion of the 12 year sentence being "too short" withRead More the average homicide criminal only going away for 5-7 years? Does that opinion make sense to you, especially with jail overcrowding and early releases of felons back into the community?
andy fischer April 18, 2014 at 02:06 pm
Not really, but I don't know all the facts either. If you have a very, very good lawyer theRead More probability of receiving a reduced sentence or being found not guilty are much higher.

Andy, oh, you mean we don't have 'equality under the law' like they taught me in grade school? HowRead More disappointing. My evening is ruined now. And what exactly is a 'good lawyer'?

From Highereducation.org and not specific to CUSD: "The California State University (CSU), aRead More large public university system, for many years has applied placement or readiness standards in reading, writing, and mathematics that are linked to first-year college coursework. All first-time students at all 23 CSU campuses must meet these standards, principally through performance on a common statewide placement examination. Despite systemwide admissions policy that requires a college-preparatory curriculum and a grade point average in high school of B or higher, 68% of the 50,000 entering freshmen at CSU campuses require remediation in English language arts, or math, or both. Should the same standards be applied by the California Community Colleges with their open admissions policies, their remediation rates would exceed 80%." I defy anyone, at least anyone who is intellectually honest, to look at those statistics and not be frightened about what they represent for our society and its future. The current system of education is failing the vast majority of students in California, and the continual attacks on those trying to reform the system is sickening to me.

Thanks Capo Mom- I have actually spoken at past Board Meetings and asked Trustees to be moreRead More transparent about the lack of funding. If the District told parents- the public and Staff- to write their legislators and explained that the base grant is not sufficient to fund even a basic education, then you would see a lot of pressure being put upon those in Sacramento who control of how tax money is allocated. But as you see on these Boards - there is not interest in discussing funding allocations - just a constant call to increase taxes? I am puzzled as to why that is. The State has a surplus- and is not fulllfilling its constitutional obligation to provide a FREE and EQUAL education for all.

Let's not forget the "summer blend" that we are forced to purchase. This does nothing butRead More increase the gas prices, as this article states, the ethanol for the summer blend was a factor of the increase. There's no proven need for this more expensive blend they roll out when more gas is being consumed.
OldTimer April 18, 2014 at 11:54 am
Megan, the average price of gas NATIONALLY has skyrocketed over the last 10 years. Review the priceRead More charts. All public information. The California electeds love higher gas prices because the State collects the tax based on the PERCENT of the standing price per gallon. The higher the price the more you pay the governor. So they will use any old excuse to make you pay more. I expect gas to hit $5 a gallon this summer, even with the claim that we (the US) is producing more oil than ever. Supply and demand???? Sure. Pull my other thumb!!!

As I get older I have come to realize rarely are things the way they are fed to us or as they appear on the surface. The other sad thing is the media will quickly ruin a guy's life but never after being found innocent go back and recant or disclose the facts for what they really are. Why is that? Because it sells more news to tear down than to report truth on a follow up.

We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.
