As human trafficking becomes a greater issue around the world, and here in the United States, maybe it is time to revisit our laws regarding prostitution. In Nevada and in Germany, prostitution is regulated; they are licensed, tested, and taxed. If there were a legal option throughout the country, I suspect most would use the safer, legal option.

You did such a great job with the elementary schools, but what about high schools. I went to a volleyball game at Morton and they had no air conditioning and one fan for the whole gym.

If middle-class wages kept up with the rate of inflation, as the cost of health care has done, we would be able to afford to pay more, as we would have more money available. The real issue is that our wages are stagnant as inflation continues to rise. Maybe the Repubicans would like to address this issue.

I think President Obama needs to turn his phony Nobel Peace Prize over to President Putin.

I can’t believe they send kids home from school because of the heat. Come on! I went to school in the 1970s and there was no air conditioning and we never missed one day of school because of the heat. It’s no wonder the kids are soft. Boo hoo and toughen up.

What’s the difference between Syria and their poison gas and us and Agent Orange during the Vietnam War?

In case John Kerry reads Quickly: I’m so sorry about the hick from Northwest Indiana’s comment about your military service. Obviously, they don’t know what the term “Swiftboating” means. Not all of us are that stupid. Thank you for your heroic service in Vietnam.
