Super proud and honored to have you guys as a part of this experience. We were so excited to watch your determination and perseveranece! We are really happy to read about the positive sides to the stress. Keep doing what you are doing to make Indy a better place!
"It's sad to me," Perez said. "How do I encourage kids graduating now? They just want to go to school. How bad can that be?"
Pay for it yourself. No one owes you anything, just as no one owes me anything. I can't expect, whatever the circumstances, the citizens of Mexico, Ireland, Guatemala, France, China, etc. to pay do anything for me or my family if just happen to randomly show up in their country. I am not their responsibility and they have every right to deport me.
If the policeman yanked you out of your car, that is an issue of the police state out of control, but you want the same people in charge of the police to take more money from the citizens of the U.S. and subsidize your parents illegal behavior. Yes, it is not your fault they dragged you across the border, but it is not my fault either. Put the blame where it properly belongs - on our fascist government and your similarly corrupt / tyrannical former homeland - and finally your parents.
You frankly are depending upon the corruptness of the American fascist state to give you want you want - a free pass - well nothing comes free, and you will understand that later in life.
There is also the issue of that pesky constitution. At its core, a request for donations for a cause, ANY cause, is free speech. How one makes these requests can be legislated, but only within certain legal parameters. From this article, it sounds like someone will not be able to simply hold a sign downtown. That's chilling.
The difference between a charitable group asking for money and a panhandler doing so, is the same. One of them is deemed undesirable and less powerful, and so the city is going to limit their rights. Do we have rights or is that all relative to one's economic and social status?
Directly asking for money is not extortion, especially as panhandling activity is currently legislated here. They are not using power and $$$ to manipulate legislation to favor their own interests. They also are not taking tax-payer money. You have the option to donate to them or not. It's one of the few non-manipulated economic endeavors around.
Let me apologize, Dear Readers, for jelled instead of gelled. It's quite embarrassing...we'll see if I can fix it. I even thought that little error through before hand, lol. Can I blame it on my love of Jello? How about lack of sleep? It is ugly. I'll try to keep mistakes like that to a minimum.
We are rooting for you, Procrastinators!! Stay strong, Stay positive, Stay awake!!
I'm dying to know how you guys are doing! Hope all is going well, GOOD LUCK!!!!
Love you guys
Gas taxes and wheel, plate, driver's license etc pays for
some 65% of roads and repairs.
Some 16% of that tax goes to mass transit.
High speed rail in Indy? What are you smoking. The
Acela high speed rail between NYC and Boston is where millions ! of people live and barely breaks even.
Get on the clue train. Geeeez
Look up critical mass and get on the clue bus.
A mega-bus is the best answer for now as it is flexible, much much cheaper, and not funded by the tax payer.
Quit trying to get tax payers to pay for your fantasies.
Dear Miss bus seat...now you know why everyone prefers cars.
You are on the bus alright...just not the clue bus.
Shoot drones down. Simple. It is not illegal.
You would need a crossbow or pellet rifle, since you it is
illegal to fire a gun in city limits...but...if you felt your
life was in danger....hmmmm.
Maybe drone buyers will find another hobby.
Shabazz is right on target. Indy is losing millions in lost revenue. Other charitable groups should have a tax id or some such identifier.
The lone panhandler is NOT in that group. Many are very aggressive in their approach and border on economic extortion not free speech.
And there are plenty of social agencies for those truly in need and should be supported.
The lone wolf panhandler often doesn't need/want help but just wants cash for drugs,booze, smokes or to support a free range lifestyle and just scam folks.
I have to ask how many of the 30% who were deported for traffic offenses were for DWI? Is Mr. Guerrero suggesting that driving while intoxicated is not a threat to the community?
How about a category for "Most Confusing Venue Name?" Haha.
Thought the same thing, Concerned Indy Resident. Hadn't heard of it, Kat. Of course, I've been to the original Hoosier Domea few times 900 years ago :)
No one needs to implement reforms or any other changes. The problem is execution. It doesn't matter how many meetings had or education laws passed; the results of these changes are not evident.
"It's been called the world's most complex cocktail for a reason."
Really magnetizing writing. I'm on the edge of my seat.
I love Hoosier Mama products! And these two women are so, so friendly! I bought stuff from them at a booth at the Fair Grounds one time! Hoosier Mama Bloody Mary Mix is the perfect gift for people who need to experience something great from Indiana!
It was the other way around, sir. The ambulance owner has threatened the restaurant guests, employees and HIS employees. "Google" Samaritan Ambulance Service and you'll see numerous posts and complaints re: the ambulance company.
Yeah, I am wondering why the bus driver doesn't just call the cops and refuse to drive. One arrest would nip this in the bud forever...
Oh, wait, I just figured it out: He doesn't have any union protections and is concerned he'd be fired for doing the right thing, since this person might turn out to be deranged, homeless, or connected to somebody in the Carson clan.
How is it "good government" to remove the equalizer that prevents gerrymandering this city into GOP domination, despite the fact that the GOP is a vast minority here? At-large seats ensure the majority is actually represented by the city council, not ruled by it.
