Where is this country going?

---- — I recently read about the tax hikes the local districts are doing. It is just wrong. There is no teacher or administrator worth that. They only work six months out of the year and get everything paid for.

Why don't they get paid by the hour like everyone else? The people that are on disability or retired don't even make that in a lifetime. I get one-tenth of that a year and have to make it go. To me, unions are going too far; there is not a person in the world worth that. Years ago, they only $39,000 to $40,000 a year.

Where is this country going?

The government took everything out of the schools and other places, even the Constitution. What is wrong with these people?

It is time to put the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer back where it belongs.
