Vangaurd and Mr. Stogner
Interesting perhaps we could outsource all the public jobs including Police, Fire and Teachers to India or the Philippines. Sure we could give the Police a Prius as a patrol car, the Firemen could pull little red wagons with a garden hose in it and the Students could call in for class.
If Mr. Stogner is endorsing this idea he is neieve at the very least. This would go against all the union contracts as it would be bargaining outside the unit in poor faith.
Maybe it would be of benefit to talk with the current employees, I would say in an economy like this you would have your hands full.

The unions say a free market compensation system (the backbone of capitalism) would be bad faith. This can only mean that unions know their comp plans are above and beyond what the free market would bear.

Hey Haha Thank Wall Street for screwing things up along with Prop 13
there the ones that sold you down the trail of greed and loss. I think people who live in Atherton should pay more in taxes to subsidize everyone else on the peninsula who is scraping two nickles together just to exist. I don't live in a castle like some. A workers revolt would set you straight me thinks. No services for fat cats. Nuff said
