Hey riverman, did you know that in order to live in public housing you HAVE to pay rent? The government doesn't let them live there for free. People living in public housing ARE producers. A lot of people who live in public housing are elderly, far past the working age, yet many of them still have jobs. There isn't room in the job market for everybody to have a well paying job. Some people are stuck making sub-par wages their entire lives. These hard working individuals don't deserve to be kicked out on the streets, and they HAVE to have somewhere to call home. Public housing is the answer for their needs. We provide medicare for older adults who can't afford the outrageous costs of health care, and social security for the people unable to work, why shouldn't we help pay the cost of housing for people with no access to good jobs? Throwing people out in the streets to die is no solution. It perpetuates the problem. Employers don't hire homeless people.
Go out and talk to some of them, maybe you'll learn a thing or two.

Preach, preacher. And other guy, YOU VOTED ON THE CITY CHARTER, or had the chance to.
ITS DAVID COOK!!!!!
He's saying the law is unnecessary, which it is, because every school I've been to has rules against sagging, sports bras, spaghetti straps, and short shorts. I don't see the state legislature passing laws about short shorts, which was just as much a problem as sagging in my high school. Mr Cook is one of the only writers to draw the connections between these ridiculous laws being passed. That is, our representatives are ignoring the real cause of all these problems.
We're not going to solve the "gang problem" by arresting every black person we see wearing a red or blue shirt (current gang laws legalize racial profiling, in my opinion. Anyone who 'looks like they're affiliated with a gang' is subject to this.). One way to actually help is programs like the Taft center. Other programs are also disappearing. After school programs, like music and the arts, are being cut every year. Most communities where this is a problem have nothing in them for kids to do besides hustle and do drugs. You wonder why we have a "gang problem"? Look to your representatives: they've been taking away what little the black community had without even asking the community how they think the problems can be solved. It's ridiculous that people think they can solve someone else's problems without even talking to them. I talk to people in the projects almost every day. They have ideas, they have solutions, but they do not have the resources to put these into place.
I HATE NATIONAL PARKS!!!!!! SELL IT SO WE CAN EXPLOT ALL THE RESOURCES UNDER THEM!!!! THEN WE CAN BLOW UP ALL THE MOUNTAINS FOR DIRTY COAL!!!!!!! SCREW THE EARTH - I WONT LIVE HERE MUCH LONGER!! LET OUR GRANDBABIES FIX OUR PROBLEMS
Some of the people on the forums need to get in touch with their privilege, starting with Chet. I haven't seen that much racist rhetoric come out of someone's mouth in a while. If you want to have a conversation about race then get in touch with your own.
Evolution does not seek to prove the origins of life, only how life evolves. Thats why it is called evolution, not creation.
Go ask the Hill City residents.
You're right. There's no need for transparency and public input in the magnet school business.
