The 50,000 so far i beleive would be most of the normal cost of maintence on the eqipment. I get the sticker increase but it sounds like your still going to rob from peter to give to paul for the rest. My question would be with the city cleanup coming up in sept, at a cost around $50,000 each year to the taxpayers,its was proposed in the private haulers contract free for the next ten years $500,000…

The raised sticker prices....remember? The only real change right now is buying one more truck then they had planned to. I'd like to see more of an analysis on the maintenance costs. Since central services does a lot of the repairs I wonder how this is all accounted for. What does the $50,000 spent so far this year include?

"It’s a coincidence", there are no coincidences in politics. One hand washes the other and politicians hand out favors to supporters like people hand out candy at a birthday party. A bigger concern for me is whether these political hacks did any work for the big money they were making? Handing out make work jobs for political support is an abomination and those that did it should be punished.

Sometimes I just put a bag of popcorn in the microwave and simply read the comments for a good laugh. You caught me at a moment where I happen to be out of popcorn.

REBEL MEDIA: Don't take anything for granted

2 months, 2 weeks ago by Bob Gough

“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?” Ronald Wilson Reagan

Cantor's immigration position didn't help, but this stunner is because he was out of touch with the district that had elected him by rote seven previous times, although his percentage of the vote had dropped in each of the last four general elections. 

On primary election day, Cantor was in Washington D.C., not his home district. Retail Politics 101 is you vote in your home district on election day. You do it if you're from North Dakota and you especially do it when your home state is Virginia, in the shadow of the nation's capital. 

Cantor became the darling of K Street and Wall Street and his constituents were secondary. 

There are many congressmen and senators who deserve Cantor's fate. Those who no longer vote the wishes of the constituents, but vote to secure their power base among the Beltway Elite and their benefactors. They are in both parties.

There are many more bums who need to be thrown out. Don't stop now.
