Yes, it's a stupid question and even more ridiculous when you understand that schools, municipalities, large corporations all take advantage of self insurance program which can be customized by insurance actuaries and risk management calculations that tabulate a combination of self/commercial insurance to have adequate coverage. Complete self insurance is very rare since the cost of a earthquake, tornado or other catastrophic event exceeds a calculable risk do to the unpredictability of the event. Most catastrophic events are covered by commercial insurances with a designed deductible to reduce cost.

I would suggest these schools were most probably covered by a combination of commercial/self insurance.

Our government putting Americans to work is NOT a waste of our taxpayer money. It's how much money is wasted in the process to put them to work that is.

I never have been able to find any info on just how much money is spent in that process. That tells me either the government doesn't know or it is classified.

Here's a challenge for everyone. Go to grants.gov and find the most ridiculous waste of taxpayers money you can find.

There is a abuse of taxpayer money I would like to report for the month of May. One of our NASA Astronauts floating around the international space station, lip singing and pretending to play a guitar.

When I saw that all I could see was OUR tax dollars floating out in space.

This is how 'Tio' responded to justaliar's anti-Hispanic post...hilariously funny and so appropriate.

Finally someone immediately calling her out on her biased, intolerance rants.

Welcome to the board Tio! In my opinion you have justaliar figured to a 'T'. Well done my man well done indeed!

Even the Hispanic Republican that was in charge of Hispanic Outreach quit the party and became a Democrat. Did you miss that last week? You know that was when a big Republican mag and online site came out with the story of how Hispanics were mentally inferior...

I would say when it is private contractors getting the money and making big profits and paying Mexican low wages to do the work and gets away with it because most white American will not work those kind of jobs yes I would say the taxpayers are getting screwed. I actually did not see that big of improvement getting people off unemployment with all the stimulus money being given out by the government. The job market is still not that good.

Oh, I didn't think you were Packing Hater...I just remarked that he must have been in bed..
But you sure do catch the wingnut meme on this board pretty quickly for a new person....
After abusing this Hispanic man every way she can and she realizes he is ignoring her then she claims she really didn't think he was Packing Heat all along and tried (without success I might add) to lie about what she had posted earlier....does any of this sound familiar?

Tio, my man I salute you! You handled justaliar with finesse and with ease of a pest control professional eradicating a infestation.

I know the school I worked for had insurance. Now I never gave it a thought at the time with whom they had it with. But I do know the school system I worked for would have adjusters look at the damages and get paid for that claim. The they would do the repairs as cheaply as possible and usually had janitors do the job and get very little extra pay and the money was spent some where else.

Moore schools are not self insured. Moore schools and the City of Moore are insured by an insurance company in this state that also insures a lot of the other schools and municipalities in this state.

Good morning. There is information available on the so called green energy jobs that Obama claimed was such a good idea. These companies received mega millions of loan guarantees which all was supposed to produced jobs for America. Didn't happen. The companies jobs creation is a net loss in most cases and those jobs that lasted a few weeks or even months cost the taxpayer millions of dollars per job.

Can't make this stuff up. Terrible waste of taxpayers money but Obama did repay some of the people who supported him for president the first time around.

That's because most of the jobs added to the economy have been government jobs. The government does not generate income. For any positive effect to happen, the private sector would need to produce its own jobs.

Misty posted some info about risk management and how schools, cities and corporations handle insurance coverage. She's really smart so I would believe something she posted over anything justaliar would claim!

WE were in a major employment tale spin then, so it is hard to say just how many jobs it effected.

I know it seemed to me that a lot of states were more concerned about politics than putting the money to good use. Take Oklahoma for example, they were against taking the funds to begin with, so when they decided to finally accept the money did they spend it correctly, or did they blow it to prove just how big of a waste it is.

Just so you know; the politically correct term is Hispanic not Mexican. The workers you are referring to are from Central America and South America not just Mexico.

I just remember a private insurance agent coming to the school and filling out a loss report for the claims. I don't remember what companies it was. This when my boys where in grade school and junior hi.

Plus, Tio Mio, that won't be on the front pages tomorrow. This bridge with people on it came crashing down...and it needed repairs...but Repubs sure hated to have any funds for infrastructure... or the jobs that would come with it. Maybe you should get your jollies from reading about that.
Hey, justanut this post is a lie. The bridge rating is easy to find on line and was IN COMPLIANCE when the incident happened yesterday evening and what actually happened was a oversize load hit several girders causing the bridge to collapse!

Again attacking Tio over your own laziness? Your whole attack is done under a false premise. Your post on the Washington State bridge is like most of the crap you post all bullshit!

For me it is also another example of our money be use to innovate, only to have China steal the technology and take jobs away that was meant to be for us.
