Look around the state and see all of the students who worked hard to get into college and, when they got into college and graduated, they are hit with thousands of dollars worth of loans. There are not high paying jobs in Maine to support them and allow them to pay their loans back. Do you think they are angry that inmates are getting free college educations? People who have killed other people, maimed other people, stolen, lied and then got free living expenses in prison while the students are [paying for dorms or apartments. The first word that comes to mind is 'RAGE'. and I don't blame the students for having that at all. The inmates may regret what they did and they will have job skills when they get out. If you kill somebody, you should never get out. You won't need job skills or a degree then. What about supporting the victim's families and sending their children to college? They still have to pay for everything, even when they are paying emotionally and mentally for what was done to their loved ones. This is stupid. When ITV classes started at UMA, they learned very quickly that the prisoners who were allowed to take the classes had to have a delay because they were calling in with questions and comments that were totally inappropriate. Some things never change.
I don't think that we KNOW that the teachers in charter schools have our children's best anything at heart. I do believe that they are sucking up to lepage and/or he and the Koch brothers have paid them off. There are plenty of charter schools in Florida, which is one of lepage's favorite states and topics. Take your kid and move to Florida and see how great it is. While you are at it, please take lepage with you.
Wow....let's ban all alcohol in Maine too because people drink, drive and kill. Oh, I forgot that the politicians like to have cocktail parties and Paulie likes his little nips frequently. Can't do that so go after the smokers AGAIN. What are you going to ban next? How about governors?
Please, please, please don't waste time thinking about it. We need you and we need some sanity back in the Blaine House again. Governor Michaud is music to a lot of people's ears!!!!!
Nobody got shot there. You are a real joke. I am sure your fellow police officers were happy to see you retire and move.
This guy should never be allowed to own a gun. I would say he is one of the mentally ill who should have a psych exam and sent back to Massachusetts. If everyone has to own a gun, how many kids are going to get shot? How many domestic violence battles would end up with at least one dead? Not everyone wants a gun and not everyone has the need for power to shoot anyone who might knock at their door. Look at the facts, Marsters. More people get shot when more people have guns--especially when they don't know how or when to use them. It's almost worth buying a print of him for target practice. Almost, but not quite. Why did you retire in Maine? Massachusetts wouldn't have you anymore??
Can any of you --besides Lepage---start on Monday??
If Mr. Folsom went after Mr. Savage from behind, how did he punch him in the face? From what I understand, both of the Savages know how to complain, threaten and other interesting things that should be obvious to their reputations. There are other options than Savages.
I know this is a start for students to attempt to understand what life in a wheelchair may be like, but knowing they can get up and walk away from the chair is a long way off. I have been in a chair for seven years, now with an amputation. Recreation takes a back seat to surviving. There are more basic and important things than recreation that need to be considered. Try crossing a street without getting hit by a speeding car or being yelled at by the driver; try going into a store and having a clerk talk to someone behind you who may or may not be with you, since if you are in a wheelchair, you must not be able to understand or communicate; try finding places that really are wheelchair accessible, including bathrooms; try finding parking spaces that allow you to get into or out of a wheelchair van with a ramp or a lift. The list could be infinite. It can be pretty difficult to even think about recreation when functioning in a "walking world" where you don't fit in challenges every emotion every day.
And this has what to do with the rabbits.....?
