    I hope you realize how lucky you and all those close to you are to be "normal". These children did not ask to be born the way they are. They are each special and individual. Special Education programs are tailored to meet each child's needs so that they can be the most productive citizens possible for their individual bodies. This is nothing less than they deserve and no more expensive than locking them in institutions as was the practice a few generations ago.

    Property ownership in NOT a fundamental right granted to all. The forefathers of this country deliberately altered John Locke’s cry for “Life, Liberty, and Property” to say “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. They recognized that property ownership is guaranteed only to those who can afford the investment. A wise decision I realize now that I can look back to the homeowners’ fiasco of the past few years. It would be nice if everyone could own their own little corner of this country but not at all possible. I say that if you do want to own a piece of this country then you should pay the government of this country to maintain the basic services desired by the majority. Joe it seems as if you like having the services offered to American citizens by their communities but you do not want to have to pay for them. Eliminating property taxes is not a feasible suggestion especially not during a recession when all budgets are being hacked away at. I am a property owner and I pay my taxes because it is my duty as a citizen and a human being to be sure that my community has the resources it needs to operate efficiently. I have never been hindered in my property ownership by taxes nor have I heard of anyone else opting out of buying a home because they didn't wish to pay taxes.

    I 100% agree with this proposal. It seems that it is those that need the jobs the most that lose them first. Cuts come first, to part time and low level employees and work their way to towards the top. This only enlarges he unemployed population and further burden the social services sector. Why is it not discussed to begin pay cuts at the top before eliminating jobs at the bottom?

    If something has to go it should be the extra things. Athletics are fun and I know that they keep kids out of trouble BUT if we are debating whether or not to cut sports or to cut academics then sports should go first. I send my kids to school so they are academically prepared for college there is no other alternative. If sports were cut from schools I could always put them in little league.

    This idea and any votes to support it sadden me. As the mother of three and a teacher I know firsthand how important the skills learned in Kindergarten are. It is not just coloring and snack times. Children are reading independently by the end of their kindergarten year. Eliminating this program would only push the kindergarten curriculum into other grade levels. Privatizing Kindergartens would only benefit those who could afford them. Those that could not would be sending children ill prepared on to first grade as a burden to a teacher already forced to teach extra curriculum. Not to mention the fact that unprepared students would drag down test scores costing districts more money when the schools fail to meet the requirements set by NCLB. Shouldn’t we look to cut money where it would do the least harm to the kids?
