Think. Ballard is going to be on permanent vacation soon.

Melina Kennedy was a key player in one of the worst administrations in City history. Why would anyone who thinks want her back?
#3 Nov 6, 2011
I agree, Steve! Why would anyone want her back? Do they think she'll be any different than Peterson? They put this city in the mess it's in and everyone is trying to blame Ballard. Ballard is ahead so I don't look for him to be on a permanent vacation anytime soon.

Melina Kennedy is garbage.

Ballard hates Blacks and poor people. He is part of the problem. He is with a pack of crooks.

Perfect quote regarding Ballard:
'He'll doublecross that bridge when he comes to it.'

LOL, most poor people are a waste of resources. Look how much money has been wasted on the stupid IPS. It still is a failure.
#8 Nov 7, 2011
I agree.The money being used by IPS should've been used to build a much larger stadium for the Colts and new uniforms for the Pacers. Or even used for the benefit of Eli Lilly executives.
Education is waste of money.

Einstein once said,
'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again
and expecting different results.'
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats ....
Yet they are still POOR.

Actually it has been proven that more dollars does not fix the education system. Also teachers, admin and parents need to be held accountable. This is done with a voucher system along with holding parents accountable for their children.
