Like so many of my overtaxed California peers, I stand 100% behind the spreading faculty strikes that are being engaged in by the high paid Cal State university faculty. They do much less damage to the State when they are on strike than they can possibly do while occupying taxpayer funded classrooms.

I recall reading that faculty salaries were the MAJOR driver for increased tuition.

Let me see if I can find that citation...

OK, Mark Kantrowitz, an expert in Higher Ed, identifies instruction is the NUMBER ONE factor and says that "At public colleges, the following are the primary contributors to tuition increases: Instruction

Percentage of Total Expenditures or Total Income 31.1%

Percentage of Tuition Increase 26.8%."

http://www.finaid.org/calculators/tuitionanal...

OK, but enough complaining already...

SOLUTION:

My petition appeals to both liberals AND conservatives, and IS a 'real'solution, since it needs only 150 signatures to become permanently archived in the Whitehouse website.

Here's my petition: http://wh.gov/jU8

It's not just complaining, but rather a solution:

Try IT out for size, and see if it doesn't help get some restoration to balance the scales of justice.

If you AGREE, sign it & ask your friends to sign it.

If you DISAGREE, contact ME with your complaints --besides monitoring this board periodically, I DO post my real name and phone number online, and my real address is even in the PRWeb.com petition which is searchable in Yahoo! or Google.

Let me know which it is -- agree or disagree re: http://wh.gov/jU8

Thx,

Gordon

This doesn't make sense. Last November, we made the clear choice to continue to shovel most all of the State's resources into the pockets of the most expensive Public Empl contracts in World History when we gave the Unions complete ownership of Sacramento.

We voted to sacrifice everything else to our Union Masters and must accept every disasterous out come as all our families deserve.

Why just complain - do something about it!

While I do not like liberals any more than you, I will not limit my options here -- I signed my own petition, which uses a conservative solution to solve the mess -- Observe:

http://wh.gov/jU8

Liberals are happy cuz is helps them -- Conservatives are happy cuz we know that excess taxation (tuition in this case) & interference by the government in the Free Market is what bid up tuition to VERY high levels -- would you take a look at my 149 word petition here?

If you can get me to 150 signatures, it becomes permanently archived in the Whitehouse website like that LOSER with the Evolution petition, which is still there even after it expired -- if not, my petition gets deleted -- I have 54 an need 96 more -- can u check out out? http://wh.gov/jU8
