A husband-and-wife pimp team ran their prostitution ring remotely out of a Miami beachfront condo housed in Trump Towers III.

*Second guy with gun may not be “good”
The Florida school where a former student shot and killed 17 people is grappling with word that the armed officer on campus did nothing to stop the shooter.
Got to laugh at the people I went to high school with on Facebook about the pledge “controversy”:
“I always stand for the pledge, my parents raised me right!”
– yeah dude, you’ve been to prison three times, have multiple DUIs, been arrested for beating women, and have been unemployed for the past two years. You stand for the pledge though…..you’re a real Citizen ? #fuckYourPledge ??
People were sounding the alarm bell on Houston for years, sadly no one listened.
Houston is the fourth-largest city in the country. It’s home to the nation’s largest refining and petrochemical complex, where billions of gallons of oil and dangerous chemicals are stored. And it’s a sitting duck for the next big hurricane. Learn why Texas isn’t ready.
No more high speed transactions to make billions in a split second, slow them down by passing the Robin Hood Tax. Isn’t it time to rein in Wall Street? Contact your Rep today –>http://goo.gl/mjsbMp
Most towns fund schools from property tax. If the town is wealthy with high property values, schools are extremely well funded. If the town is poor, with very little wealth in home values, schools are underfunded and failing.
The State of Vermont funds schools by creating a shared fund state wide. Property tax from around the state is deposited into the fund, and then distributed to schools based on pupil count to equalize money spent per student. They also fund schools with an income tax mechanism. This way all students receive a fair education, regardless of which zip code they live in.
