W had his chance to stop what’s happening today. But he grew our Gov and added to the problems. N is gone now anyway. Let the private sector deal with her.

I know.

I was just commenting on the disparity

Also, though, we are not talking about the private sector. This is academia state school. Ripping children off at their parents’ neglectful consent. To get brainwashed What is she doing taking multi millions to run a lib tank school

Kids are coming out of school 20 g in debt on average. I have multiple degrees Total about 7g. 60$ per mtt for a few years

No this is out of control

‘W’ contributed plenty. He’s a lesson though for any aspiring GOP er. They’re going to nail you anyway, so just go all out conservative. ‘W’ as much hope as we had has at least for now mediocrity. Though personally I like him

I know she sounds expensive, but it’s worth every penny of the cost to get her out of the national feral government and confine her predations to the People’s Republic of California; besides, what’s a few million more to the self-appointed geniuses in Sacramento?

Not so fast. Butch may no longer be employed federally, but she certainly has not joined the Dreaded Private Sector! It's just that, with .edu at the end of her url, she'll be able to extract that unearned and undeserved surplus value even more efficiently than with .gov.

As for Blake House, I'm sure your average low-information puke can relate to the luxury in which it promises to cosset his betters:


Gov. Christie might be interested in the infrastructure at right

Might take considerable embellishment from the MSM, however. Wish 'em luck!

It’s a 13,200-square-foot house with more than 10 acres of gardens.. Pretty much what politicians feel they deserve. I’d rather see her in a 10x10 cell.

Aw, heck, MrShoop! Eight feet square is big enough.

No, my liberal friends acquaintances continue to assure me that "W" is unable to read above the level of "My Pet Goat".

College presidents actually have to produce. They have to fund raise. Johnette is just an ugly, unpleasant person and getting uglier and more unpleasant. let’s see how much dough she brings to the UC table.

It is just time for the big one in California that makes it fall off the map into the Pacific. Sorry California FReepers, there is plenty of room for you in Kansas.

Then there's Taft's Chair (1909), to be seen at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.

The guy who had his feet blown off in the Boston Marathon, where is he living?

Maybe John Nepolitano could have him over for a sleepover.

A rented $10,000 a month house is nice digs for a Single old Bull Dyke.

Private sector? She is going to a UC. California will foot the bill until the rest of the country will be forced to bail them out.
