Jen Psaki said they will try to introduce a bill, the liberal left, to help pay student loans up to $10,000 or more by August 31. Who is going to reimburse me for all the tuition fees I have paid? It’s the same as standing in front of a polling station and handing everyone a $20 bill and saying vote for the Democrats. They use taxpayers’ money to get 20 to 30 year olds to vote for them saying we’ll pay off all your debt.
I just saw a A news story about how Florida is removing Disneys special status will negatively affect Orange County. A quick Google search shows that Orange County generally votes Democratic. Gee. Shocked.

If you are sick in disgust at Putin’s efforts to exterminate the Ukrainian people, remember those here in America who supported Putin with words of praise. If you are horrified by Putin’s desire to destroy democracy in Ukraine and elsewhere, remember those in our country who acted to destroy democracy here in America. Remember all of this, especially when voting.

Thank you Donna Vickroy and JR Willard-Rose for the column about talking to your kids. As a former substitute teacher, students misbehaved before COVID-19. Can we please stop blaming the pandemic? Parents are buying their kids all new phones, laptops, anything and everything. It’s time for parents to step away from their own phones, televisions, extracurricular activities and spend time with their children. Bad behavior is an attention seeking mechanism. I am appalled at the behavior I hear at Homewood-Flossmoor.
