I would think that if Piero actually depends on his salary and benefits from his public worker jobRead More he would have serious concerns about an overly ambitious, opportunistic and out of control politician who is AGAIN cheaply and unfairly targeting middle class public workers in his state in order to score some national recognition points from Republican extremists. And as corporate, non-executive employees in this country have been increasingly treated unfairly for years with their CEO's pay continue to explode upward as their pay is remains stagnant and their benefits shrink, that shouldn't mean that public workers should also accept that same fate. Non-executive corporate employees have to also learn to unionize and organize to stand up to the continuing mistreatment.

Abby Normal- a bit of your own medicine right from that Sept 2013 Rolling Stone article...In 2011,Read More an industry website called 24/7 Wall St. compiled a list of the 10 brokest, most busted public pensions in America. "Eight of those 10 were on my list," says Tobe. Among the worst of these offenders are Massachusetts (made just 27 percent of its payments), New Jersey (33 percent, with the teachers' pension getting just 10 percent of required payments)...Some states have been caught in the act of doing this, but the penalties have been so meager that the practice can be considered quasi-sanctioned. For example, in August 2010, the SEC reprimanded the state of New Jersey for serially lying about its failure to make pension contributions throughout the 2000s... --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The the article goes on and tells us how Wall St coned the public sector unions into investing in risky securities that took a beating after the market collapse in 2008. Now I guess you want the taxpayers to make up for those losses???

Bunch of YING YANGS....where is all this outrage when a child is molested or killed...I love my dogRead More but really....I guess you took off from work to do this or are you on the dole and us tax payers are paying your unemployment...this is why America is in the SHI@@ER. Just sayin
vtxvulcan July 24, 2014 at 06:00 am
Let's get real I am sure there is outrage when a child is killed or molested. And what does itRead More matter if people took off or on unemployment, if they didn't show up at this protest they could have been off and on unemployment anyway. See people like you will always just conform to what society brings. You probably don't have a passion for anything or something you believe in. By your post you sound like a very passive aggressive person. This man killed his dog and the people in charge of protecting animals failed them. They are high salaried people who should uphold the law. Instead of doing there job they played doctor and evaluated him before he was diagnosed. They deemed him an older man with dementia but didn't take him directly to a crisis center, they allowed him to keep a cat, instructed him to drive to the animal shelter every two weeks to check the condition of his cat. Then they also said they were going to have him evaluated by senior services several days after this crime happened. What kind of urgency was there to make sure this person was ok? Plus they never actually came out and stated what were the circumstances that prevented them from charging this person. So before you bash others get your facts straight. Please follow us along at justice for mocha on Facebook. You might meet a couple passionate people who stand up for what the believe in.

Any communication concerning illegal and/or criminal activity should be discoverable and usedRead More against any party. The intent of the law and the goal of justice are both undermined when criminals stand behind a technical rule that should not apply. A great start to dealing with the reality of crime.

Interesting. Does anyone know where I can get a policeman job description for Berkeley? Not sureRead More if they should be patrolling, but every morning there is a police cruiser sitting at the corner of my block, in South Seaside Park talking to friends, I guess for over an hour? Should they be patrolling?

This really did not require any sort of marketing consultation. The name change to Donovan CatholicRead More has been floating around for years. Gere never liked the "Mon Don" moniker. There are issues at that school that should take a much higher precedent than the name. The current regime of Gere, D’Andrea and McCullion has been there too long. Too much nepotism and politics involved with that group…

Jersey Girl for Life July 24, 2014 at 07:05 am
I like the name change. It modernizes the school and still pays homage to Msgr. Donovan. I alsoRead More appreciate that the school is looking to redefine its image and attract more students. The school has so much to offer. My children had wonderful experiences and a great education there. Change is never easy, but it is necessary to grow and improve. I believe that Donovan has made a difference in the lives of my children and has given them a solid academic foundation as well as providing them with leadership skills. They had the opportunity to live their faith and the school reinforces how important service is in a community. Worth every penny and sacrifice.

@Winston Smith I noticed on another "Patch" you were asking somebody if they had vinylRead More records. If you go onto "Brick Patch", conversation section and scroll down you will see somebody is selling some "old vinyls" with their original sleeves.
