What am I missing?

I have been reading about the tax increases in some districts and also about the problems they are having in the Sayre Area School District. After looking at enrollment numbers, I found two that were very different and interesting. Canton Area School District has approximately 900 students and they employ roughly 70 professional staff. Sayre Area School District has roughly the same amount of students and they employ close to 100 professional staff. What am I missing? I think it’s about time the Department of Education, the Attorney General or whoever else can come in and clean up this mess!

In case you missed it: “Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team ‘were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.’ Not fit!” ‘Nuff said.....Donald Trump tweet: 4:12 a.m. 06Jul16

Not my president

Donald Trump’s upcoming foreign trip needs to be cancelled. We can’t allow the rest of the world to believe that he represents our country’s shared values and principles. He clearly doesn’t. He has jeopardized our relationship with our allies, who share critical information with our intelligence agencies — with the understanding that such information will not be shared with our common enemies. He has backstabbed those allies. Who could blame them for any reluctance to share valuable intelligence information with us in the future?

Nightmare on Pennsylvania Ave.

This nightmare keeps getting worse and worse. Donald Trump has revealed highly classified intelligence information to the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador in the Oval Office — information so secret that we have not even shared it with our allies. What are they to think? Can they still have confidence in our support? Impeachable offenses keep piling up, and we haven’t even had time to investigate previous treasonous offenses that warrant impeachment. Can we please wake up?

Not making it rain

America is supposedly the richest country in the world, and we are richer now than ever before. Yet more than one half of our population live below the poverty line. There’s something wrong with this picture. The process of the transfer of wealth from the poorer classes to the richest classes started with Reaganomics, and has continued for 40 years. Nothing has trickled down to me yet, and I say we scrap it as a failed idea.

Spilling secrets

The U.S. won’t have any intel sources left if this president is given access to classified sources. He can’t be trusted with any secrets or sources. He is in the pay of the Russian mob in my humble opinion.
