Certainly their could be some people with another agenda. But to say it's anything more than a small fringe group is ridiculous. People showing ID to vote is something you even think makes sense. more »

Turk as you are so fond of saying, maybe you should prove that is what peoples intent is. a national Id is fine with me. I show Id for everything much like you do. I just don't see it as an issue. more »

They think it's fair, oh oh to taxpayers.

If the student felt uncomfortable then it was over the line. A suspension seems more reasonable than termination if the concenous was this was a bad joke with no intent behind it.

I don't want to look at are my ever again. At some point he passed being a concerned parent and turned into an enabler.

Didnt say it was, Turk, but even if the median icome is 51k, their are plenty of people who work for less. Comparing your bills and financial situation to a younger generation, admittedly in bad shape more »

Turk, looking at wages based on what you made when you retired is not really fair either. 35k in many parts of the country is just fine. In Boston, its survivable but tough. And I agree to a point wag more »

Its not their money either Harry. And the board of directors are other CEOS who rubber stamp each others salary increases. The money should be going back to investors, to expand the company or paying more »

Normally I dont like govt involvement but something needs to be done with corporations to push the money down the chain of command. To much is going to few who dont even own these companies. They are more »

Any one here illegally should be held until deported. Why a story about criminals who are not even welcome back from the 3rd world dumps they come from?

Icepack, with billions in unfunded pension obligations, it's very reasonable to question the high pay compared to the average boston taxpayer. The pension system should be 100percent funded and salar more »

Maybe the economist should have pointed out that median wages in this state are around 50k and falling yet the state his paying more and hiring while Deval increases the states budget yet again? 12 bi more »

Troopers are way overcompensated. We could pay returning vets 40k Plus details and 401k and get the exact same service, or lack thereof from them. more »

Paid for with tax dollars. I understand who there boss is turk, it doesnt mean there isnt some accountability? more »

Public sector salaries are paid by the taxpayer and should be looked at to make sure our money is being spent in the best possible way. No one is trying to hurt your feelings. more »

The main problem is that most politicians are not qualified to run anything. They have little understanding of the long term consequences of the money and pensions they happily dole out. Median income more »

Turk it's interesting to me someone as well read as you refuses to except the negative impacts that illegals have on wages in this country. They hurt all these groups at the bottom almost as much as more »

hey Turk--I think its a combination here, Im not sold raising the minimum wage will do much to any of the problems with "supporting your family" and the like. Im still convinced minimum wage jobs are more »

If progressives cared about helping out minorities at the bottom of the pay scale and those unemployed they would go deport illegals. But we all know its just a point the finger shell game for liberal more »

Tough call, there certainly is an income gap where many corporations are keeping the money at the top and outsourcing jobs. On the other hand, minimum wage is not and never has been intended to suppor more »

And I'd cite reuters and Rasmussen polls who want illegals out. Even most people on this very liberal board feel that way. You included, so you claim.

What consequences!!! Most Americans dont want them here! Show me a poll that says otherwise. It' is possible to do and possible politically. If anything it would help republicans pull working class more »
