Oh, I see, so it's OK for the Republican candidates to campaign all over the country, but the president can't because he's the incumbent??? Do you really think the taxpayer pays for campaign trips, or do we only pay for Democratic campaign trips???

But Mickey, the difference between schools and companies is that we don't directly pay the salaries of those who work for private companies ... Just like when the salaries of public employees were made public, I would argue that it's one of the prices you pay for being a public servant ... And quite honestly, if you're doing your job, you shouldn't care if the world knows how well you do your job ... Keeping them private only covers for those who aren't doing their jobs.

Duke, with all due respect, BULL!!! The whole concept of trickle-down economics has proved to be an abject failure as far back as the Reagan administration ... Want proof??? How about the fact that household wealth -- the value of assets like homes, bank accounts and stocks, minus debts like mortgages and credit cards -- suffered its biggest quarterly loss in more than two years and average household income, adjusted for inflation, fell 6.4% last year from 2007, all while corporations have increased their cash reserves to a record level of 2.1 TRILLION dollars??? Does that sound to you like they're putting their money back into the economy, as the trickle-down philosophy posits???

In the name of accuracy, let me correct one statement: She spent only nine days in jail after her arrest. The point remains, however, that she did not get off without ANY punishment. Her sentence, as it is called for in the law, took into account mitigating factors.

So let's see, safny, if you get hurt on YOUR job and the injury affects your judgment, you're telling me you would want to be held COMPLETELY responsible for your actions??? It's not like the woman got off scot free; she spent more than a year in jail after her arrest and is going to serve home confinement, probation and do community service ... What you call a "dangerous activity" was her career ... Would it have made a difference if she had been a firefighter or a construction worker or taken part in some similar "dangerous activity" that you approve of???
