"cryptoguardian - you claim "No president of the USA has or will ever have ABSOLUTE POWER." If you want to believe it, go right ahead and keep on believing. It's all an illusion anyway, isn't it?"
AS I was saying what the naive and haters believe. View Comment
Isn't it strange how people,like activist B, think the president of the USA has all the power to change any and everything? The government of the USA is based upon power balance isn't it? The executive seems to be hamstrung by the lack of "What is best for the country" and more of "what is best for the party."
This president has done some very positive things in-spite of the biased right political wing opponents. This president will never be allowed to be credited with doing "great things" because of the balance of political power.
Despite what some people may claim, No president of the USA has or will ever have ABSOLUTE POWER.
Did you say, "JamesG - the only reason Obama was SELECTED to be President is the obvious - he's black. "?
I did not vote for Obama because he is half white or half black, I vote on character and I am entirely colorblind. Yes bill perhaps you should change your handle to Activist B. that way it could stand for what you really are and believe me it has nothing to do with political correctness. I was hoping, like others, for change.
What I see is hatred for the president because his hue is more brown than pink.
I also see that the more conservative, "Give us back our country," groups are road blocking, at our expense, any positive legacy for this half white man. This country is headed for, in my opinion, disaster due to hatred and bigotry. This country, in the eyes of many of its citizens, must not have any success under a non-pink leadership. Additionally many people, in this country, will never realize why the USA has become the target to hate by the majority of the races. Political correctness is one thing, but survival is another. Until we learn tolerance and respect for each other, regardless of skin color, religious beliefs, other factors and if the USA is suppose to set the example for world leadership, then the examples set so far must change.
And you reside in Mount Vernon surrounded by "blackness?" With your views on the color , not character, of people, it must make you hate the environment in which you awake each morning.
Yes bill, you are an activist of what? What's the matter cannot afford to move to locale of the lighter hue? View Comment
“SEEING IS BELIEVEING AND,” in the same respect, “BELIEVING IS SEEING”
OK, accept the standard intro with the niceties of the man in the flannel suit. Now take off the tie and roll up the sleeves; make us believe.
"Seeing is believing; Believing is seeing."
A seat has been filled on the gravy train of guaranteed pension income.
The question will be does he deserve this gift of 250k or is he in it for the soft touch? I can only hope that this person has the integrity and will not take what is not truly earned by honest toil.
NOTICE THE HEADLINE:
"Rides into retirement" True professionals leave it all on the field of battle. deserving the right to "RIDE." the question to those, who have not earned this right, is on WHOSE BACKS, ARE YOU "RIDING?'
TOO much emphasis is being placed upon the position of school superintendent. More the spotlight should be illuminated on the elected board members. I have watched this School district decline since the era of the ICA to the now clergy controlled party. My children attended this system when there was less political turmoil within it. I watched as Ronald Ross, who a lot of people criticized, as board members, like the now National Republican Party, road blocked his, every proposal thereby forcing him to leave.
The Coleman led forces that did not like the fact that he had very strong and determined personality.
He cleaned house and fired the under-performing teachers who rode the gravy train of tenure.
I realize he is in hot water presently, but he was on the right path for the education of our children, politics never deterred his motive
I have watched the weak “YES” personalities follow. I hope this hired superintendent has the gonads to stand up to the political and corrupt forces that are so deeply ingrained within this system. These forces, and you know who you are, could care less about the education of the children. Their main goal is MONEY, POWER AND FAME.
WE must clean the SCHOOL BOARD, house and just, maybe this superintendent and those who follow, will wipe their feet before entering.
The only people who claim to be optimistic are those compensated by our taxpayer dollars. Are they high fiving knowing they have another superintendent that has the potential to be manipulated?
I believe you are shooting at the wrong target,have you lost sight of the Black Clergy of Mount Vernon? Think about the group formed to challenge the Italian power structure, there are many targets to aim at in this group.
In my opinion: Davis is, and has always been, a TOOL in this education process.
As a matter of fact the way he is running and has run this city displays part of the lubricant needed to grease the powerful Democratic Machine politics of this entire county.
If this man is principled, and the school board members are principled, perhaps the citizens might have some reason to become optimistic.
Until this school district rids itself of corruption and the entire associated “ism” (crony, nepot, and patriot), the more the superintendents change the more things will remain the same.
IN MY HUMBLE OPINION:
Until honest non-political board members, who have the education of the students as the highest priority, are found, I shall remain pessimistic about this school district’s present leadership. Superintendents may come and go, but until the future board members become MORE non-political and LESS self-serving, this district will never function properly.
WE shall see how this guy handles himself in this district.
I suggest to those speakers, who are outspoken, at the board meetings, view the following link:

I can only hope that Ms. Darcy miller will pay heed to the following quote:
"If power corrupts, WEAKNESS IN THE SEAT OF POWER, with its constant necessity of deals and bribes and compromising arrangements, corrupts even more."
As the days past, I pay more attention to what is done and less to what is said. I believe the worst form of any crime or deception is the misuse of children to accomplish the goals of those involved.
Seeing makes one believe; one may believe when one sees. I wish you well and hope that I am wrong on what I believe will happen.
What has happened in the past, concerning proposals and unfilled promises, is relevant to the present. Promises and incomplete proposals, of the past, have led to a community of non-believers with attitudes of cynicism and distrust towards politicians and religious leaders. If this project comes to fruition, it MAY create some trust for those who HONESTLY mean what they proclaim.
