Carson, Trump and Rubio have all called foul on Cruz campaign spreading false rumors about Carson to take votes in Iowa. Will it hurt Cruz for organizing a campaign prior to Iowa caucus falsely telling voters that Carson dropped out of the race, and they should vote for him? Do you think the GOP party should do anything about this, if so what? Is Carson right to ask voters to reconsider any support for Cruz, via playing dirty tricks to win? …………..CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin said Ted Cruz’s blaming of a CNN report for the rumor that primary rival Ben… Read more »

I saw something new to me yesterday while looking over a survey/solicitation from the RNC.

After the expected questions and the suggested tiers for donations was this option: “No, I cannot contribute at this time, but I am enclosing $15.00 to help defray the cost of processing my survey.”

What? I can’t imagine they really expect people to send them 15 bucks. Has this been going on for a while?

Former UGA president Michael Adams has been out of office for two years and he gets paid over $676,000. Other university presidents are paid over $1,000,000. We hear nothing from our legislators.

Government pay is more often increased by comparing to other government scales as they left the private comparison behind long ago. Remember the article where if 3 super paid teachers retirement admins they didn’t want to write the $250,000 or so checks for unused vacations.

Aside from the working pay, fear the pensions and benefits no private firm could afford for another 30 years not working and sometimes double dipping somewhere else.

Put an equal effort into demanding corporate executive pay cuts and maybe you could save enough from buying their products to afford the extra teacher pay.

Corporate execs don’t work for me but I do have options on their products.
Teachers work for me, they are underpaid and over administered workers and overpaid retirees. After 10-15 years they are burned out by folks like you and waiting on 30.

Would love to read one of our interns give us some insight on the millennials leaning to Progressives and social democrats. Just listened to Hillary claim she was more progressive than Bernie who was said to be drawing great support from millennials and is a professed social democrat.

What we hear is the reasons reside in mostly social issues. As a spark, Perhaps it is a smoke screen as their real concerns are economic. Education costs, Student loans, employment, health care, home loans, a scary world that progressive politicians promise to save them from.
