Points to Ponder

Why do Town Managers and Mayors threaten to cut Fire and Police service every time a buget "crisis" strikes a community?

Ever notice that Government is very inefficient when it comes to managing money and resources?

Why to teachers clamor for pay raises when they only work 8.5 to 9 months a year WITH all the guaranteed Holidays and Vacations built in that people in the dreaded "Private Sector" don't get off?

Why do we place limits of how many hours a truck driver can operate his rig yet in Massachusetts we place no limits on how many off duty DETAILS a police officer can work? Keep in mind the Police Office has to make critical split second decisions involving life and death as a matter of course. Shouldn't we demand that he/she should be as rested as a truck driver?

Why do Celebrities such as Rosie O'Donnell, Babs Streisand, George Clooney, Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise feel they are an authority on matters of international politics, specifically the Middle East, when none have ever spent any significant time there?

Ever notice the "news" rarely reports anything POSITIVE unless it is in the last 30 seconds of the broadcast?

Why is there always one ASSHOLE neighbor in every neighborhood?

Why does Comcast suck at being a cable operator in terms of customer service but is excellent in customer service as an ISP? Wouldn't be that little thing called "competition" would it?

Why did the Catholic Church continue to cover up their Priest's sex abuse problems for years? And why isn't Cardinal Law in JAIL for his part?

Does anybody watch Katie Curic on CBS?

Does anybody listen to the Felonious Felon Tommy "Taxes" Finneran on WRKO AM 680?

WHY WHY WHY did Panera Bread eliminate Dr Pepper from their fountain drinks and replace it with a Raspberry Ice Tea concoction? For that matter why is a high end eatery like Panera serving a low class drink like Pepsi?

Anyone have any answers or thoughts?

some serious issues to ponder here. but i completely agree about the cop issue. w/out a doubt you are right about this.

and yes, the catholic church should seriously do something to the priests that sexually abuse children. it's been happening for sooooo long and they want to bury their heads in the sand instead of facing the problem.

and isn't that right about the neighbors... so true, so true.
