Charter School

The students in the Utica charter school did not out-perform all of the Utica public schools. If you check the scores, one elementary school (Utica's largest) scored better and some other schools were about the same as the charter school. Considering the demographics of the schools and the longer school day, one would think the charter school would have done considerably better. I guess the charter schools don't have all the answers.  (9 hrs ago | post #29)

Time to address CEO wages

Since we were discussing CEO salaries, how many of the wealthiest 400 are corporate CEO's. Don't include those who actually owned the businesses they ran? I'm guessing there are very few CEO's in that group. Which leads to another discussion; are you suggesting we limit overall wealth? Should the government be in the business of wealth redistribution more than it already is? Remember, fair does not mean equal.  (Thursday Aug 14 | post #38)

Time to address CEO wages

How does decreasing the pay of top executives affect the wages of the workers? If we cut the salary of every CEO to $1.00, does that do anything other than make you feel better? Or, are you saying we need laws to decide how much everybody gets paid? Maybe we need wage standards that indicate the proper wages of all workers based on how much they “feel” they deserve.  (Wednesday Aug 13 | post #24)

Time to address CEO wages

I think people should be allowed to decide for themselves how much money they want to make. If you want to make minimum wage, don’t worry about things education or personal appearance and apply for jobs that anyone can do. If you want to make a little bit more than that, graduate high school and take whatever is offered you. Don’t worry about working hard; just put your time in. If you want to make a decent living you might have to work hard, learn a trade, make some effort and try to improve yourself. If you want to make “the big buck”, go to college, get a Master’s Degree (or more) in a marketable field, start at the bottom, work hard, show initiative and do what is needed to work your way up the ladder. The other alternative is to sit back, whine and complain about how life isn’t fair, bitch about the people who did what it takes to succeed and wait for someone to hand it to you. Remember, life isn’t always fair, but it helps if you play be the rules. The main rule is - you only get out of it what you put into it.  (Wednesday Aug 13 | post #18)

Time to address poverty

And the poor in this country are better off than the poor anywhere in the world. The poor in the US would be the elite in most other countries. Our poor have computers, video games, cars, air conditioning, and many other amenities that are considered luxuries in other places. They also have the option of bettering themselves through hard work and determination. They have access to healthcare, education, food stamps, housing, legal services, family planning, etc... Although being born into poverty is not a choice, staying in poverty for most Americans is a choice. Those born into poverty may never be wealthy, but in most cases they do have the opportunity to better themselves through education, hard work and determination.  (Friday Aug 8 | post #6)

Boiler Maker

13,000 people run the Boilermaker and have a great time doing so, but five or six self-righteous idiots on Topix think they know what is best for everyone else and can't resist the need to display their divine idiocy by disparaging them in multiple posts. Amazing, simply amazing.  (Jul 10, 2014 | post #4)

notre dame sends in recruiting complaint??

Maybe you should check your facts a little better. Byron was not employed by Proctor when he went to that camp. He didn't get approved by the board till earlier this month. If he wasn't on the payroll then he was acting as a private citizen, not as a representative of the school.  (Jun 26, 2014 | post #14)

wawawawa Tenney

Ever since Reagan the Democrats have won elections by running from the center and ruling from the left. You ignorant right-wing wackos are still blindly following your talk radio heroes and losing ground. Forget the tea-party extremists and learn from your mistakes. If our party would have run a conservative moderate we could have easily beat Obama. The presidency was ours for the taking. You can't change Washington if you can't win the Whitehouse. Run from the center and rule from the right. Get over yourselves and fight a battle you can win. If we can't read the writing on the wall we are doomed to eight years of another Clinton in the Whitehouse. Is it really better to stand your ground and continue the way we have been going or would it be better to gain control of Washington and make the changes we need to make. Keep your eye on the prize and do what needs to be done to achieve it. Remember, pride goeth before the fall.  (Jun 26, 2014 | post #30)

wawawawa Tenney

Is it possible that the local Republicans are fed up with their party moving so far to the right? Is it possible that we realize that we are losing support from the party moderates? The tea party take-over has outlived its usefulness. If we hope to ever win a national election we will need the support of those Tenney was trying to defeat. We need to court the right wing moderates. If she would have stuck to economic issues and left the social issues for after she was elected, she might have won this race. You can’t hope to win by excluding a large section of your support group. She should have concentrated on winning the middle ground. She already had the support of the far right.  (Jun 26, 2014 | post #13)

Both Sides Deserve To Lose

If the vote fails - Campaign finance complaints will fly. We cannot let the standard for campaign finance in Utica become what Nice N Easy did in this case. Bobby, Can I assume that this has already been sent out?  (Jun 12, 2014 | post #38)

Both Sides Deserve To Lose

I'm all for good government but making up violations that aren't there is no better than what is going on at city hall. I'm not in favor of the way Nice-N-Easy is handling this situation but I am not going to chastise them for something they have every right to do. Two wrongs don't make a right. If you feel as strongly as you do, file the complaint and let the chips fall where they may. One thing I would ask of you though, when you get an answer on this complaint, let me know so I can say "I told you so". Have a great day Bobby and keep up the good fight. Although we may not agree often and I disagree with your methods, I do respect your intent. We both have the same goal, we just disagree with the path to that goal.  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #21)

Both Sides Deserve To Lose

But this isn't an election and they aren't advocating for anyone but themselves. There are no contributions to claim because they haven't contributed to anyone. They aren't advocating for any candidates because there are no elections, hence no candidates. They don't have to file anything because there is no candidate or committee. They haven't violated any campaign contribution limits because they haven't given to any candidate or PAC. You are really stretching to make your argument. You may not like what they are doing (as I don't) but that doesn't make it illegal.  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #17)
