Nett: Details would inflate 'job creation' as political f...

The article was informative about the types of jobs created being of the low wage variety. I was hoping to hear more about how 'job creation' is being used as a political football. Unfortunately from where I sit, the football doesn't exist. I don't see poiliticians as being concerned at all about the unemployed.  (Aug 28, 2011 | post #1)

Third pedestrian hit by vehicle in two weeks

Speed limits are too high here in Lubbock. All speed limits should be reduced by 10mph. Life is worth the cost of time.  (Dec 6, 2010 | post #2)

Gay Marriage - Lubbock, TX

I can't immagine what it would be like to born liking the "wrong" gender. Most of the comments are dripping with self-righteousness . We heterosexuals need to practice humility instead of judging that which we don't comprehend. Some will say, "I'm not judging homosexuals. It's in the Bible." Remember people used the Bible to justify slavery too. http://historyscoo p.wordpress.com/20 08/10/27/biblical- verses-used-by-sla veowners-to-justif y-slavery/  (Oct 11, 2010 | post #34)

Lubbock's Congressman among the richest in TX and U.S.

A 1979 Carnegie study ("Small Futures: Children, Inequality, and the Limits of Liberal Reform", Richard de Lone principal investigator) found that a child's future to be largely determined by social status, not brains. Consider Bobby and Jimmy, two second-graders, who both pay attention in the classroom, do well, and have nearly identical I.Q.s. Yet Bobby is the son of a successful lawyer; Jimmy's works infrequently as custodial assistant. Despite their similarities, the difference in the circumstances to which they were born makes it 27 times more likely that Bobby will get a job that by time he is in late 40s will pay him an income in the top tenth of all incomes in this country. Jimmy had about one chance in eight of earning even a median income. http://www.trinity .edu/~mkearl/strat .html  (Oct 11, 2010 | post #11)
