Pilots Protest In Front Of Airline Clients

Bonnie, I have SEEN what "unions" can do...to people AND to our economy. Tell me...when your husband took a paycut did his UNION DUES go down? Probably not...they have lawyers to pay! Also, nobody ever answered whether or not AA had the highest paid pilots of any major carrier (still).  (Apr 16, 2008 | post #42)

Pilots Protest In Front Of Airline Clients

I am sick and tired of AA pilots picketing and stricking over pay! I understand they are the highest paid pilots of all the major carriers...does anyone know if this is correct? I am sorry but I think unions are a big part of the economic troubles we are experiencing today!  (Apr 15, 2008 | post #1)

Teen Suspended After Accepting Call From Father In Iraq

Just a few points (opinions): "Zero Tolerance" is put in place because some teachers are incapable of making judgements. They are bias towards their "favorite " students and dole out punishments based on their mood. My son is on his second tour in Iraq and he calls WHEN HE CAN! I will take his calls day or night, work or home. I love my job but would walk away if they EVER tried to stop me (they wouldn't). There should be an internal investigation. If the teacher felt as if his/her hands were tied due to policy then I understand, however, IF there is found to be some bias based on personal polotical views (anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-Republican, etc.) then they should be fired IMMEDIATELY. As retired military I know Copperas Cove. It is a military town and though I was never stationed at Fort Hood I visited friends there on more than one occasion. I would expect this from an inner city school not a military (predominantly) school. LALA1, while I respect your opinion as always, I somehow get the feeling you are just playing "devil's advocate" here. I do not believe (or hope) that you agree with this school administration on this.  (Apr 15, 2008 | post #70)

Arlington Man Nearly Loses Home Over $250 In HOA Dues

I think eventually your neighborhood is a reflection of your actual self. If it is worse than you you either fix it or leave it. NONE of my neighbors will tolerate crime and everyone watches and helps everyone else. If we had a place where teenagers "hung out" many more people than just their parents would have something to say.  (Apr 11, 2008 | post #118)

Lewisville Undercover Operation Targets Day Laborers

Yes, I have been hungry AND cold. I have sold everything I had worked for, sold my plasma and delivered pizza seven nights a week to feed my kids and put a roof over their head. BUt both I and my children know right from wrong "Right isn't always easy...but it's ALWAYS right."  (Apr 11, 2008 | post #171)

School Says Girl Lied About Immigration Poster Assault

How many 13 year old girls do you know who have a problem with illegal immigration? Hell...most 13 year olds I know can't even spell it! Somebody needs to talk to these parents!  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #34)

Police Arrest 2nd Suspect In Fatal Birthday Party Shooting

Lewisville Undercover Operation Targets Day Laborers

Is it OK to steal from you because I am hungry? Is it OK to drive 100mph because I am in a hurry? Is it OK to thro a bag of trash out my window because I have no place to put it? Is it OK to punch your son/daughter in the mouth because I don't like what they said? I am sure the answer to all these questions is a resounding NO. So why is it OK for people from another country sneak into AMERICA? How is this law any different than laws against stealing, speeding, littering or assault? Just an honest question.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #160)

Dallas Deputies, Constables Asked To Review Chase Policies

First of all...the fact that a chase ended in a "shootout " is EXACTLY why they should be pursuing these people and getting them of our streets! I understand sometimes "breaking off" a chase but it should be at the officer's discretion based on the crime committed and the safety of the general public (NOT the safety of the perpetrator!) If you run from the police (who are trained in high speed driving) because you think you have a fast car (or bike) and are a better driver you deserve what you get.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #4)

AA Expects More Than 900 Cancellations Thursday - Travel ...

I agree. I really think it is a FUEL COST thing. AA could have worked out a deal with the FAA to inspect/repair (add a wire tie) these planes as they landed and end up with a few delays over a few weeks time...and accomplish the SAME THING...EXCEPT for the money saved on fuel!  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #2)

Arlington Man Nearly Loses Home Over $250 In HOA Dues

Most HOA's I've experienced build in power until they self destruct eventually anyway. Where I live now began as an HOA and everytime there was a turnover the new board members felt they had to "make it better" by raising rates or creating strictor guidelines. People will only take so much and eventually everyone who is not a board member quits paying, attending and listening. Some people should NOT be given power!  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #91)

I wonder if she even KNOWS that she is racist? This girl caused physical harm to herself in order to get revenge against the "Latinos "...she needs help! The boys who took the poster are/were serving an in school suspension.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #6)

Teen Charged With Attempted Capital Murder After Standoff

I believe if you SHOOT at anyone it is more than a simple "assault ". It is a given that nobody shoots to harm...they shoot to kill. You can punch, kick or cut someone to "hurt" them (assault) but if you are discharging a weapon at someone...its attempted murder. Just my opinion!  (Apr 9, 2008 | post #14)
