In fairness, the Cape School District's new dress code should apply only to families having an income of more than $250,000 per year.
Recently when the House voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, a vote decried by Democrats as a political charade, it marked the 33rd time that Republicans have acted to defund, dismantle or repeal the health care law. They have wasted so much money and could have been doing something to help get jobs back, but not them. They are only going to try to do something to help them, they think. The people should make them pay for their own health insurance, and provide their own pension without the use of the American people's money to give them a free ride.
Penn State: Now you can see what money and greedy can lead to. They wouldn't bring him down because they didn't want their apple cart turned over. Just keep reaping the profits and big money.
It's not free health care. It's is simply forcing you to buy health care. If not, you will be fined, or "taxed" as they say. Those of us who want it repealed want politicians to go after the insurance companies to make it affordable for everyone, like Bush tried to do for eight years while Democrats shot it down. Do your research, people.
Constant criticism comes from the White House accusing the GOP Congress of doing nothing to improve the economy; how is that possible when they send bill after bill to the Senate and Sen. Harry Reid will not put the bill on the floor for a vote? No one man should have absolute power in the Senate. It's his way or the highway.
In a recent editorial, Mike Jensen wrote that we have lost the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty and the War on Education. I agree that we have lost the War on Drugs. I am not ready to throw in the towel on the War on Poverty, although the Bush recession resulted in a big setback. Finally, I disagree completely with Jensen's view that the War on Education has been lost. Far from it. I think so-called conservatives, charter school advocates and school choice proponents are on the verge of victory in completely destroying public education.
Taylor Crowe's caustic editorial cartoon takedown of the vacationing-while-the-deer-issue-continued-burning Cape Girardeau City Council member Trent Summers was priceless and worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.
Kudos to Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon for vetoing legislation essentially designed to allow for denial of birth control insurance.
