Re: SCE Will Lay Off 500 IT Workers and Hire 500 Foreign Wor

They are lowering overhead to help with the San Onofre cleanup expenses. A big boondoggle for them.

Re: American Sniper

Mr. Bongo: I don't believe you have a realistic grasp on Chief Petty Officer Kyle's mission during his combat deployments. War is a horrible thing. There are snipers in war. Their job is to kill the enemy. Unless you know a sniper personally with actual combat deployment, you are only guessing with ...

1. He deserted. 2. This is a spectacular p.r. boner for the administration. 3. From interviews with his teammates, he displayed increasingly erratic and unusual behavior. 4. The UCMJ will only apply if someone very high up in command isn't preventing him from being punished. 5. He will have a very d...

Re: Benghazi email timelime

Read the chapter on Benghazi. Then post your response.

Men died due to inaction by people who shouldn't be in high-level positions. The inaction of those listed in the Seals account of the incident is inexcusable. Criminal actually.

Re: OC homes too expensive for most public school teachers

"In fact cops and firemen make a heck of a lot less then teachers over a nine month work period."
Completely false, if your making a statement about those in California.

Do you ever search the salary tables available online for police and especially firefighters?

Re: OC homes too expensive for most public school teachers

Well said MDDad. Neighborhoods often get more expensive and harder to afford to live in. How many teachers that teach in Beverly Hills live there? What some don't discuss is the lifetime pensions and medical coverage that many teachers receive. I live next to a couple of retired educators that each ...

Justifying this is pure insanity. He should be removed and another put in his place that is compensated realistically. Makes you wonder how many situations such as this are out there in these spectacularly over-compensated positions.

Re: Parents stunned that union is seeking a $10K severance!

Lose their pension? I don't believe that's correct. That was one of the proposals In the last pension reform in Ca, but Governor Brown didn't go with it. I think that any public employee guilty of a felony or serious crime should automatically forfeit their pension. That would provide some incentive...
