They evidently do not understand their responsibility in our political system, i.e.: Pay your taxes. Sit down. Shut up

Mr. Hill. REALLY!? We should just blindly let the government run things, question nothing, and pay out our hard-earned money without question?! I don't think so. Government should be questioned. Leadership in government should be truly representative of the wants of the People. They shouldn't be beholden to anyone but the People.

Over-crowding is and has been an issue in our schools in Hamilton County and in other counties across the country. Projections made when East Hamilton was built were obviously not enough and now we are left with the aftermath. If rezoning is neccessary, as I believe it probably is, why should the parents of the students directly effected not be involved to some degree?

Easier to do when you have someone paying the gym bills for you isn't it?

Mr Green- The current generation is stepping up. Those currently drawing social security, medicare, and welfare of other types, are having it paid for by those of us working to support the system. The main problem with this is that when we are old enough to draw social security, it will most likely no longer exist. Who will foot the bill when we are old enough to draw social security?

It's about time. This family needs to be able to try, as hard as it will be to do so, to be able to move forward. Holloway's disappearance was indeed a terrible event but, how much longer should they be expected to live it out. They will already be without their daughter the rest of their lives afterall.

Get over it folks. This is TFP's playground. If they want to take their ball and go home, that's their business.

Yeah...and his performance sucked. What does that tell you?

The outcome of the events held in and outside the space aren't always good...no doubt about that. The intent of bringing kids in and meeting them where they are is a good idea. Bible thumping kids in the head does nothing but drive them further away from what most people in this part of the country see as the only way they can be good citizens. Which that way of thinking in and of itself is ridiculous. Religion is not always the answer.
Something does need to be done to address the gang problem in this city and in others as well. I don't think we can place blame solely on one place, be it a church/nightclub/event space/art gallery, whatever you want to call it. Our local law enforcement has its' hands full already but, if you look at their job descriptions I doubt you'll find that it says they shouldn't have to deal with things of this nature. They are charged with the act of protecting and serving the community and enforcing the laws that are on the books.
The problem isn't with the venue. The real problem lies with the fact that gangs exist in our city and are taking over our streets. Less energy spent on closing down whatever the operation actually is at 412 Market is and more time trying to do something about the situation on the street would probably be more productive in the end.
