Mark, I'm just reiterating a point. IMO cops are paid way too much. Cops should not be paid commensurate with licensed medical doctors with 10-15 years of higher education and $300,000 to $500,000 in student loan debt when they finally are officially declared to be medicial doctors. Sorry if you don't like my opinion. If I consider it the higher truth. Truth that many wish to attack or ignore.

My concern is that this is so much firework activity in Andomeda's neighborhood. Firecrackers are illegal! You should contact the police. Oh right, I forgot ... Call Pinkerton instead. They will solve the problem! Secondly, I'm concerned about Andromeda's phone service. It would cost you $500 a month to call 911? Wow, that's expensive! I have an unlimited cell phone for a mere fraction of that cost. Or you should consider MagicJack at $19.95 a year for unlimted calls! Or possibly your math is once again skewed?

Freddy, do you always take everything so literally? As far as the cop's salaries go I've already provided the data that supported my math. There should be no question about it now. Math supported by raw data. So I don't know what else I can do to convince you, Freddy 'ol boy. Maybe you should call yourself 'Thomas the Doubter'.

Andro O' pal, I am just worried about your safety and the firecracker marauders! I certain the OC Sherriffs will protect you despite your anti-police sentiments.
Andromeda December 07, 2012 at 07:12 PM
Oh, I can handle most problems on my own without calling the cops, Freddy. If something bad happens they just come out and take reports anyway. Nothing gets accomplished. So it's better not to call them and waste my time. I know that they have more important things to do like roust drunks and homeless people from the libary grounds. Oh, and I am not anti-police at all. So your assumption is wrong. If you knew me you would understand that. I am anti-paying cops like medical doctors and letting them retire at 50 or 55 with $4 million dollar pensions. But I know people like you would ignore that line of rational thought and paint me to be some kind of bad guy. That's pretty much how you folks operate. Enjoy your Friday, Freddy. Go have a donut.
