@ SassyItalian

For all you Monday morning quarterbacks...try having your house robbed/invaded a couple of times (as stated in the article) so that you have to have a loaded rifle by the door...then ask yourself how many of those police reports led to arrests (my guess is zero). Then imagine encountering the same (or similar) criminals rummaging through your truck on a Sunday morning...

Great post, Incognito. Where's the community outrage? When will the tea party and other grass roots movements aim their anger in the right direction?

there is a third option, dipstick - raise tuition (although this is could be construed as a very narrow tax and unfair tax that favors the wealthy).

tuition and fees @ UNLV = $4,500
------------------
tuition and fees @ UC Merced= $8,411
tuition and fees @ Arizona State = $6,334
tuition and fees @ Rutgers (NJ) = $11,886
tuition and fees @ Hawaii = $7,168

You might also like to check out how Australia deals with funding the private and public benefits of education (basically the government gives a loan that is only repaid when a student earns above average wages - i.e. when they start receiving a private benefit from their education).

The last two posters are hilarious (in their ignorance).

According to Wikipedia:
"The president [of the United States] earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 non-taxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment." Not to mention free accommodation.

How much do you think the President of a corporation that makes $2 billion a year in revenue earns? Answer: "A chief executive officer of a Standard & Poor's 500 company was paid, on average, $10.9 million in total compensation in 2008, according to final data from The Corporate Library." So are they 50K/year jobs too, misterright?
