School bus stop sign

A family member is a school bus driver. We were talking about people not stopping for the school bus stop sign. My family member told me that this school year seven police officers have run the school bus stop sign, and the last one was on a cell phone. How nice of our police officers to break such an important law. What if it were your children getting off that bus and someone were to run the stop sign and hit them?

Indecent photo

I am appalled at the picture of the scantily clad woman attending the Cape Comic Con. There are decent people who read the paper. Can a more appropriate picture be used?

School bus stop sign: Yeah, well I love how the bus drivers pop out that sign as you are passing them in the opposite direction. You slow, hesitate, they don't deploy the sign so you move on. But...just as you get beside the bus, they pop out the sign and honk. Idiots!

Not much to comment on...so in reference to Cape's budget problems...

I don't believe sales tax revenue is falling because of the increase. Rather, the economy in general (caused by alarmists in the media) which are scaring people into not spending.

I do think Cape's budget woes stems from mismanagement at the top. Public Works, Finance Manager, etc.

What it really appears to boil down to...Cape builds wonderful facilities and then fails to maintain them. Costing the city much more in repair and fix than it would cost in routine maintenance. Who does the inspections, is he/she doing their job, if so why doesn't the city listen to him/her?

Anyone else have information?

Theorist,

I'm like you, I don't think Tax Revenues are falling due to the increase in Tax; however, I do feel that tax revenues ARE falling due to continued poor economy, job loss, poor sales, etc.

Additionally, I don't think "alarmists" are causing this poor economy either. (If anything they are keeping the citizenry in check and keeping us from over-spending more) It's plain and simple. The Country is going broke, we're still suffering the woes of inflation and over-priced goods and services, along with a healthcare industry that is slowly (now quickly) sapping our financial stability.

Realistically...Heathcare needs to cost about $30 per month per citizen, an average home needs to cost about $35,000, and an average car about $7,000.

I missed the scantily clad woman pic (darnit)!

Ive experienced the same thing with passing a school bus , I slow & start to inch by then out pops the sign as I'm even or slightly past it.

Another thing I constantly see is a school bus rolling through stop signs without stopping, ( I was under the impression they were bound by the same traffic laws as the rest of us).

Theorist, you are as disrespectful as anyone on here, you just go about it in a more oblique manner.

-- Posted by D'oh on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 10:13 AM

JUMY,

I said AVERAGE car, AVERAGE house, AVERAGE salary. What you would pick or buy or make is up to you. Additionally, the $30 per month for health care is reasonable.

When you go to a buffet you pay $8.95. Now you may go to the buffet once, but another guy may go up 25 times. It's the cost of doing businesss. If the restaurant owner isn't making money on $8.95 per head, then he can either raise his price (reasonably, close his doors, or the folks who think they don't eat that much and $8.95 worth of food can decide NOT to participate in the buffet.

Additionally, this is already the same philosophy instituted through an insurance program. You have a co-pay (presumably) when you visit the doctor. You pay your ($30 co-pay) and you either are in and out with a hand shake and a pat on the back, or you get more tests done, pricked and prodded, and the works. So....do you complain to your doctor because you're not getting as much for your co-pay?

$30 per month, per individual (including children) is very reasonable. You eliminate TAX to pay for it, and you eliminate FREE healthcare. It's a simple solution. The law of numbers still makes this a profitable venture for healthcare bringing in nearly $270 billion dollars a year. If you personally think YOU would be over charged, then go and and pay what you pay NOW for healthcare per month and have fun with that.

Here's Ron Paul's reasoned view about the present Swine Flu situation. As usual he is right on the money. We could have had him for president. What a shame.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB5-Y08qb...

Ron Paul and Rep. Larry McDonald were the only people who voted against the foolish Swine Flu vaccines that Gerald ford mandated in 1976. More people died of the vaccine than got the flu. The vaccine also injured hundreds of other people with permanent disability.

( Larry McDonald was killed on Flight 007 in 1983 Many people, including myself at that time, believed the government was not truthful in their account of the event.) McDonald was requesting a congressional investigation of the Council on foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission before he "died". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_McDon...

Don't take any government mandated vaccines.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 10:50 AM

JUMY,

I am not placing a exact cost, I am merely suggesting lowering the average costs. EVERYTHING is OVER-PRICED. Additionally, if you're whinging about paying $30 per month in one statement...then saying your current health plan is fine with you in another, you must be getting free healthcare from your employer.

-- Posted by ..Rick on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 11:15 AM

JUMY,

I'm already in the insurance business. (among other things) Insurance is not the problem, it is merely the reactionary of the COST of medical services, facilities, pharmaceuticals, and all the other little "tack-ons" the healthcare industry over charges for. (Aka...$10.00 per pill aspirins)

Additionally, You and I (or anyone else) wants or NEEDs to make more money. Why? Costs. Case in point, my recent Moped purchase. Last year...the cost of a new moped was around $1200-1500. This year that same moped is going for $2300. Why? Gouging. Consumers were gouged by last years high fuel prices, and needed cheaper transportation. Therefore, there was a surge in moped sales.

Then...the moped dealers doubled their prices to gouge us even more. What did you and me have to do? We had to demand more salary for our services due to the jump in price of food, fuel, and fuel efficient vehicles.

If the average price of a home was $35,000, and the average price of a car was $7,000...then you and I wouldn't have to make so much.

Look at our Ford Stock. Hovering around $5.40. Now, look at Chrysler (hovering around $70.00) See anything wrong with that? What I am saying is eventually the mass over charging will or (is) finally taking it's toll on the economy.

I fully expect there to be a huge adjustment in pricing acrossed the board. Infact, I'm hoping for it. Even with the failure of GM and Chrysler, do you think Ford is going to see a $70.00 stock? Very very unlikely. But that's ok...that SHOULD mean the price of Ford cars and truck will go down.

In closing, we can afford to make less IF the prices of everything else also goes down. And it's not a matter of if this is going to happen, it's just a matter of when.

Aww geez...I was merely adding a realm of sarcasm to KJT's post.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 11:39 AM

JUMY,

I'm not sure there is ANY comparison on how Cape is being run (ruined) by our city fathers. Government/plain stupidity/or otherwise.

Now....personally, I think they are running it like a bunch of "newbie" oil speculators. Did we ever get that $25 Million wind fall from "Killshot?" LOL! How about that $50 Million dollar windfall we'll get from the Bike Regada?

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 11:43 AM

Cycle,

Yes...I walked right of World of Honda, got on the net and found a scooter/moped on Craiglist for a third of their price. Additionally, what they did with fuel prices IS gouging. Sure, it was a trickle down for every business affected by the fuel gouging, but the bottom line is Oil Speculator know that Fuel keeps everything in the business world moving. Unfortunately (like air) the United States thrives on Oil. We don't have it, we die. So while it may not be a physical need, it is a "financial" need.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 11:58 AM

I think (and this is just my personal take)that children who are handed everything, do not learn the pride and discipline they need. For instance, provide a child the opportunity (lessons, sport,skill, materials etc.) then let them earn medals, ribbons, awards, scholarships. They have learned what work and practice will provide.

-- Posted by Theorist on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 11:59 AM

JUMY,

I actually bought the moped for my High Schooler. (Though I've enjoyed it myself) With as many trips as he take down to CHS during the summer for band practice and what not, I figured it'd save me a few bucks in fuel.

"Healthcare may be different, but most other goods' and services' worth is determined by us."

And you hit the nail on the head. It is different. (Unless you want a death wish)healthcare is a need. Do you want gouged for it? The fact is, that's what's happening.

I was also in the funeral profession for 15 years. Do we want to die? No. But the fact is...we will. Do you want gouged for it? Sure you can adapt, get cremated, but guess what? They'll also start raising the price of cremations.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 12:05 PM

JUMY,

LOL! I was ready to pay CASH, and they informed me the CASH price was the price on the tag.

As many times as I haggled prices for people's funerals, I have to laugh when this type of rubbish happens. Like I said, we've become a country of over-charged, over-hyped, goods and services. If you're haggling over funeral prices, you best cut YOUR prices in half. Because I guarantee you, no one wants a dead corpse lying around unattended.

It's just like ditch digging, garbage collecting, ect. No one wants to pay the folks that do it that much money, but ask that same person to personally do the "dirty job" and they don't want nothing to do with it.

LOL!!! I just got one of those blasted Highway Patrol "wanting money calls."

"I like deciding what is worth buying and how much I'm willing to pay for it."

JUMY,

Exactly, but we don't really have a "freedom." Let's face it, some products are still over-priced, even when the "market" doesn't justify it.

I should have pulled one of these on World Of Honda. (I think the skit was on "In Living Colour".

Example:

Me: What's the cash price on the scooter?

World of Honda Dealer: The sticker price, $2300.

Me: How about 50 cents and a jelly bean?

JUMY,

Sure, my kids will end up with something too, but by doing such, kids will just expect it.

LOL....JUMY, the national debt was left there for us to pay to. It's not a debt that YOU will personally leave for them or me for my kids.

To me, that National Debt is a joke. Sure...I'm paying taxes, but is it really going toward paying off the national debt? That thing will never be paid. They might as well stop counting it all up and forget it.

I think this is exactly why I am for a "barter" type system. Each individual paid for his or her individual talents. That way when the doctor kills off enough patients, I could exchange my services to remove them, in exchange for a heart-transplant, broken leg, Swine-Flu vaccine.

"Does your child now expect a moped every year since you gave him one?"

No, but my 13-year-old will expect one when he gets in High School. And the 4-year-old will expect one when he does.

I don't see a problem in "helping" your kids and leaving them that "little edge" that will give them a boost. However, a million dollar trust to never work again? Useless, you're not serving any "good" purpose in doing that. Infact, it would be a huge dis-service to a child.

I think overall, kids do "expect" it. We've become a society of convenience. These kids that work in these restaurants have no idea of customer service or pride in their work.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 1:02 PM

Nall,

Let's face it, some consumers would by a ketchup popsicle while wearing white gloves. Some consumers justify price based upon their own laziness or lack of knowledge.

This is the reason we now get poor service, poor products, and poor pricing. The average consumer "accepts" things as "it is what it is" and never looks back.

Busch beer? Headache city! Parking Lot? On Broadway? Hey...let's loiter and cruise! I thought it was cloudy out?

JUMY,

No, No, No...you're missing the point. While drinking (and wanting to eat) you go to a bar that serves food. (like the pilot house) or...you "could" go to Apple Bee's *rolling eyes* or my old 1980s Friday/Saturday night primer... BG's.

After aquiring your preferred level of intoxication it "was" Taco Johns, (but in the late 80s they raised their prices too high, after all...the point of drinking is to drink yourself "broke" and have a few pennies left to eat and pass out on)

However, after the big price increase in 1989. I started going to Taco Bell where one of three things would happen in the AM hours. We'd eat at THE BELL, drink more, get sick and vomit. Or We'd be drunk and beligerant and smash burritos on the inside window of Taco Bell on Broadway and race them. OR We'd order 50 Tacos in the drive-thru, and leave and never pay for them.

Mr. B's was great, but when the cross dressers started showing up (after a night of heavy drinking) we'd make fun of them and get banned.

Then...There was the time we were in Denny's after a heavy night of drinking (I used to carry a flask of scotch) and I dumped it in my soda at Denny's and stupidly ask the waitress to "sniff" my soda because something was wrong with it. Yep...Banned again.

But McDonalds? *tisk tisk* That's where I pulled into while cruising broadway at 16 and drinking and driving. I used it to "dodge" the roziers whenever they pulled behind me.

Theorist,

I guess i am not going to amount to anything. My parents gave me everything i have every asked for, they help me out in every way possible. I have had a job since I was 14, and only had to pay for dinners when i took out girls(well most every once in a while the old man would hand me a $100), had to pay for the engagement ring i bought, and a few other things. But all that money i got from work went in a savings account for when i got married. But i will almost bet every dollar i have that if my Civil engineering and surveying degree end up to be a bad choice i can always work with my hands. I have always told people i feel that i am the most lucky person that ever put on a pair of shoes. I was told that if i get my Eagle Scout award before i am 16 i can have any car or truck i want new or used, of course i got a truck because i am a man from the country and yes it has loud pipes on it. However my old man told me the same thing he told me about the money i get when he and my mom pass (which will me a long time from now i pray to God) once it is gone there is no more, which means he will only buy me one truck, and that is it. there is nothing wrong with giving your kids money when you die, i plan on working my *** off and making lots of money and giving it all to my wife and kids. And if you are a good parent then your kids will do the same .

Willy I was talking about Joe and John. Joe died in the service of his country during the war and John was injured in the war and later became president. Bobby worked for civil rights for all. Actually 3 died serving their country. I guess that doesn't mean much, because their dad did something illegal. Many of that family still work for the rights of others...too bad it doesn't mean much or count.

GENEVA -- The World Health Organization has raised its pandemic alert for swine flu to the second highest level, meaning that it believes a global outbreak of the disease is imminent.

WHO says the phase 5 alert means there is sustained human to human spread in at least two countries. It also signals that efforts to produce a vaccine will be ramped up. more... http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/swine_flu_wor...

Efforts to produce more vaccine it says? They already have vaccines produced. Yes they have good vaccines for the people who they want to keep alive and bad vaccines which are a crap shoot if they work or not or worse yet full of more live flu virus. You are in more danger getting the vaccine than taking your chances with the flu.

Either way big pharma makes a killing. ( Pun not intended ) In my opinion anyone taking one of these vaccines is rolling the dice. I do not trust the vaccine makers. If they go to a level six, they will have forced vaccines. You will be a subversive if you do not take it and could be imprisoned or worse. Read the government documents already in place.

They can not pull this off unless the people as a whole say no to the vaccines. But they will do everything they can to scare you into submission or use strong arm force.

I know this subject is not as cool as talking about motorcycles or drinking beer, but if you don't care about yourself, at least care about your family. Please read the Baxter story about vaccines and other published news about vaccines and pass it on to everyone you know. Don't believe the government propaganda. Sure some will say you are crazy and our government would never harm us on purpose, but just ask them how their 401K is doing these days. http://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/20...

InfoWarrior. with all due respect...how many times has this happened, contaminated vaccines, contaminated meat, veggies, wasn't too long ago that doctors' office had some problems w/cross contamination..it happens, I prefer to think of it as human error, b/c that happens as well.

btw, just out of curiousity, did u have ur vaccinations? the routine ones given from birth-5?

-- Posted by Turnip on Wed, Apr 29, 2009, at 6:06 PM

Nevermind, Infowarrior...I did some research, Gulf War, not really forced...more of a hindsight thing, anthrax was never enforced..so....

how many people die from influenze in the US annually, alot...and that vaccine is not mandatory by any means, merely suggested. Heck, kids can go to school w/o their 'immunizations' therefore possibly exposing other children to those diseases. Vaccines are not bullet-proof, I don't think anyone implies that they are.

They are indeed thinning the herd Northwoods.They look at anyone who is not working for them as useless eaters. It's hard to resist when you are sick. Those globalist evil bastar8s think nothing of killing millions of people. They don't care if you lose everything including your life. 9/11 and Oklahoma City were child's play compared to what's coming.

They are satanic psychopaths. Some of you reading this don't believe in Satan or pure evil. I'm not particularly religious but I do believe in God and I believe in evil. It doesn't matter if you believe in Satan or not. They do, and that is what's important. I have studied these people for years and learned most of what I know from people who have observed them from many years before.

Some people say why haven't we been told about these people. Simple. The major news is owned by them and they are not going to expose themselves. And those of us who have exposed them have been ridiculed and dismissed as kooks.

Many of their writings and beliefs are not secret and are out in the open. But their books are so dull and their speeches so dry, that only their fellow believers and those of us who pay attention to them know what they are doing and going to do.

Their evil is so despicable and horrific that the common person does not believe those of us who try to expose their evil. They have a blood lust and they hate goodness. They get power from death. It is too late to try to convince anyone now by suggesting reading material. Most people won't even take the time to watch a you tube video exposing them, but they call people like Northwoods and me crazy.

It breaks my heart to know what is going to happen to our country. It may not happen with this current episode of swine flu and this might blow over, but if not this time it is coming soon.

Janet Napolitano said last weekend that worse stuff is coming.

This country has turned over our sovereignty to the United Nations, The World Health Organization, and the rest of the New World Order.

I believe that the Air Force One flight through New York City this week had an esoteric meaning. I don't know what it was, but I'm sure it was for evil purposes. The satanic people running the world work with magic and signs and symbols. Let's just say I'm not planning any trips to NYC.

Sorry Willy, must have missed it, was someone criticizing your family like they were the Kennedys? One of your relatives was the president of our country? Wow - didn't realize. My point was judging the whole family by what one or two have done and ignoring the good and accomplishments of the rest.

To answer your last question - because they accomplished a lot in their short lives for all America and are recognized in our history books for that...are your relatives?
