The millionaire tax is the political version of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. As 100% of the people if 2% ought to pay more and a good majority of the self-centered 98% will vote "heck yeah...it doesn't affect me". A good example of why we have representative government and not a true democracy.

Mabey the "on time in jeopardy" is a little alarmist this early. However the longer they hold off the harder "on budget" becomes if you plan on keeping the original target date. although I don't think its uncommon for deadlines to get pushed back a time or two on a project this size. Knowing the schedule they are under there is probably a reason overtime and double time contingencies were put…

McCaskill: Governor to pull county cops out of Ferguson

9 months, 1 week ago From USA Today

From From USA Today:

Gov. Jay Nixon will pull St. Louis County police out of Ferguson after four days of angry protests over the killing of an unarmed black teenager, Sen. Claire McCaskill confirmed on Thursday.

Nixon traveled to Ferguson Thursday to meet with church and community leaders about the unrest.

"It is my understanding that the county police will be taken off the investigation," the Democratic senator said.

"The police response needs to be demilitarized, " she said after meeting with clergy. "I think the police response has become part of the problem as opposed to being part of the solution. We all got to take a deep breath and realize that the vast majority of people protesting have a constitutional right ... They are my bosses and I want to make sure they have an environment of safety and respect."

St. Louis County police have been in charge of the investigation into the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on Saturday and with securing the streets of the city during the confrontations between protesters and police.

It was not immediately clear how removing the county police force would affect the Ferguson police department, which is a separate law enforcement entity. It was a Ferguson police officer who was involved in the fatal shooting of the teenager that has angered the largely African-American community of around 20,000 people.
