What's the real reason these kids went on this "mission"?

Andy, the "real" reason these young people went to the Navajo Nation was to help otherRead Morewho were in need. There's no mystery to it; just the desire to help others. My son was part of this group and I could not be prouder of him.

Make sure you pick up all the ugly, unauthorized campaign signs.

We in RSM have constantly seen teens assembling at the Central Park amphitheater and city hallRead Morewater fountain area to perform skateboarding tricks. Yes, our youth need a place to play. But, not only are RSM taxpayers waiting to be hit a lawsuit when (not if) a teen gets hurt on the property and sues the City, these teens constanty leave their fast food trash on the ground. Every time I'm in Central Park, I pick up fast food bags, cups and other trash left on the ground after the skaterboarders leave. City officials, please be proactive and address this.

I really hope you find your kitty AND that if you do, you Keep Him Inside! Coyotes, other WildRead MoreAnim als and Vehicles are everywhere. It just not safe for them to be outside.

One private school (Chaminade) must have out recruited another private school (SMCHS). [Here kid,Read Morehe re's a free ride to our private high school; we'd appreciate you putting the "ball in the hole" for us. Don't worry about grades, we'll "take care" of those for you.]

Candidate Raths is correct to focus on mission. Much of the waste in the Pentagon is directlyRead Moreattrib utable to the fact that they don't seem to have a cohesive mission. The President wallows from one misbegotten enterprise to another and the military wastes millions, maybe billions trying to adapt. Weapon systems are developed as though someone is preparing for a high tech version of WWII, while terrorists cross our borders with impunity hidden among nascent Democratic voters arriving without legal authorization. If you don't believe me, just take a drive along our border with Mexico and see the signs that the Administration has erected warning you away. It seems that our government has decided that surrendering sovereign territory to drug lords and terrorists, and erecting signs is far cheaper than defending America.

Jack, you know, I think you are correct, My hairdresser told me the exact same thing. And one rinky Read Moredink congressman from South OC is going to be able make a big impact to changing things. Let's be realistic, What the pentagon or president or federal government does is 99.999% out of our hands. Your kitchen top can opener breaking has 69 times more impact on your life than a congressional or presidential election. Life is too short to waste your brain's clock cycles on essentially irrelevant "issues". Anonymous posters commenting on the workings of the pentagon and the federal "machine" is like anonymous posters commenting on the workings of a neurosurgeon. If you think you know what's best for the federal government, then you don't know what's best for the federal government.

Can “one rinky dink congressman from South OC... make a big impact”? Read CharlieRead MoreWilson 's War by George Crile and then ask me that question. You may also watch the film version starring Tom Hanks, but you'll miss a lot of the key answers to your question. Charlie Wilson, a member of Congress representing a district in Texas, felt that the United States should help the people of Afghanistan repel the Soviets who invaded their country in 1979. Despite indifference in Congress, a doubtful President, and the active push back from the State Department and the CIA, Charlie pressed forward. With the aid of a CIA agent, Charlie secured funding and weapons for the insurgents known as the Mujaheddin. When he equipped them with shoulder-fired Stinger antiaircraft missiles, they were able to drive the Soviets away. That's what one rinky dink Congressman from Texas was able to accomplish. Why couldn't I have a similar impact on the Pentagon where our national treasure is being wasted on weapons systems that our warriors don't want or need while our soldiers, sailors, and airmen are going without proper training and suffering cuts in pay and benefits? Don't get me wrong. There's a lot more for a member of Congress to do than flush out the problems in the Pentagon. Members of Congress are ombudsmen for their constituents. If you ever have a problem with a bureaucracy, you'll be able to count on me to go to bat for you if I'm elected. I'll also help other members of Congress with their projects. Every person elected to Congress arrives with talents and background that incline them to focus on their special interests. Healthcare professionals in Congress will necessarily be focused on the unique problems of that industry. Business people will have special knowledge that will be useful in solving problems with the economy and jobs. Unfortunately, politics have gotten in the way in recent years and members of Congress have been legislating their ideology rather than the interests of their constituents. Even more egregious, they've been working for their political allies while allowing the Administration to use its bureaus and agencies to attack political adversaries. They can't seem to comprehend that a political adversary is not an enemy, but rather a fellow citizen with a different opinion. Yes, one rinky dink member of Congress can do a lot of good while one ideologue in Congress can do a lot of harm. We have the legislation to prove it, don't we? Look at Obamacare...
