Makes perfect sense:
Hamas commits war crimes by purposely fitting at civilians from civilian locations and refuses to admit Israel's right to exist.
Hamas is elected by Palestinians into power after Israel 100% evacuates Gaza and then spends millions of humanitarian aid building tunnels and rockets.
And Israel calls neighborhoods and texts Palestinians hours before firing to warn them.
So OF COURSE Israel is wrong to act after allowing thousands of rockets to be fired on them for years!

I agree strongly with DrDan: more education money for TEACHERS and classrooms.
Often these capital construction projects are about expanding non teaching aspects of the bureaucratic power centers (administrators and staff) vs students and learning - not to mention the construction unions.

Nice try but the CO2 emissions caused by the mining of needed material, transportation of same and manufacturing of solar panels plus the installation and maintenance to power the desal plant are only slightly less than the CO2 released by the use of natural gas to do the same thing.
And for that tiny CO2 savings the cost is 400-600% more.

The fundamental difference between Christianity and Islam is that Christianity was founded by a pacifist and Islam was founded by a warrior who waged brutal, deathly battle at the head of an army.
This fact (no one disagrees with this) is literally the root of Islam and how many flawed people (which is all people) interpret how to deploy Islam.
On another note:- What is the reason that the Indy doesn't have a Jewish or Hindu or Christian column? It's just not "hip and trendy" for the PC lefty's at the Indy.

Fracking itself has caused ZERO environmental damage. (reports of earthquakes are ridiculous as they are typically sub 0.01 on the richter scale and similar to that of coal mining with zero damage to anything).
Fracking itself HAS released huge amounts of natural gas which is rapidly replacing coal and releases 1/2 of the CO2, bringing US CO2 emissions back to 1993 levels!
Fracking has been the largest contributor to CO2 reduction by 1000x (or more) than that of solar and wind combined (due to natural gas replacing coal for electirc production).
Fracking itself has NEVER poisoned or hurt ANY drinking water anywhere in America. EPA agrees.
Fracking uses less than 1% of chemicals in the water mixture *all of which* are same as common household detergents.
Fracking and cyclic steam injection does NOT use potable water or compete with ag water or ground water that would be used for drinking or ag. Myth!
Fracking reduces the excuse to enter into foreign wars or be tied to regimes that hate us.
Fracking supports middle class, skilled jobs.
Fracking is "made in USA" with support for suppliers, oil prices, etc.
The problem with Fracking is that:- It doesn't match up with the vision of crazies on the environmental left.- It's is a GREAT way to raise money scaring the bee-geezus out of low-information voters via fundraising: most of them on the left fo- Being against fracking is "cool" to a lot of lefty intellectuals and upper Eastside rich Prius drivers.

Awesome. Anti-gun law #46 to add to the 45 current laws that did *nothing* to stop mass killers in CA recently.
Finally, we can all feel safe! Thanks HBJ, you're the best.
(and thanks for the anti knife bill and the anti-car-driving bill too! --- oh, wait, those are not included?)

1. It's public access property. The lobby and the parking lot. Public.2. The constitution bans *CONGRESS* from *ESTABLISHING A RELIGION*.
News flash: the Jail is not the U.S. Congress and the Jail is not establishing anything. They provide access to the PUBLIC. The public can include people with religious beliefs (any religious belief) who decide to TALK to other adults (protected by 1st amendment).
I know all this must be very, very hard for you to hear.
And how terrible it is! People freely and transparently reaching out to people with an agenda (in this case Christian) that includes horrible things like: compassion, forgiveness, conversation, support, etc.)
Only a GIANT massive left wing controlled big government program led by political cults of personalities could ever possibly be effective at doing these good deeds. People could NEVER do it on their own.

Congratulations and welcome to perpetuating a long tradition of overspending on Union backed administrators at the expense of students combined with massive under-performance of your curriculum that fails our kids while you laugh and smile in front of cameras and happily pay your union dues that will give you 120% of the equivalent base pay for same job in private sector and almost 190% total pay (for base + benefits) during your tenure + 223% of average retirement benefits if you decide to retire at 55 and 283% if you decide to retire at 60.
And the massive drop out rate?
And the massive broken ESL programs that leave latino's behind?
And the crappy teaching supplies and tools that are not up-leveled because *your* Union prefers maxing out layer upon layer of unnecessary admins in the district (to increase union dues and influence)?
You should be ashamed of yourself for hopping on board such a terribly destructive organization. Shameful!
