    A new ALICE study, which stands for “Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed”, reveals that 54 percent of Borderland households struggle to keep food on the table, and are only one crisis away from falling into poverty.

    Who oversees the board? Looking at all the new positions (waste) Cabrera keeps on creating, I can’t help but wonder who is approving them? The C&I department has grown exponentially as well as other departments. They’ve created a “Transformation Zone” department as well with very high salaried employees. How can they get away with it?

    A funny thing happened on the way to the forum. It seems the EPISD is trying to sell Alamo Elementary in South El Paso. It has been vacant for about 10 years. They went out for bids and got a bid from an organization named La Fe that has a lot of interests in the Barrio. Including a Charter school. The bid was below fair market value so the district did not accept the bid. However, the head of La Fe said he wanted the building for a community center and some offices to help the community so the EPISD is not considering going into Partnership with La Fe.
    If this is like other deals the EPISD makes you can expect it to cost the district money rather than getting money for the surplus property as was previously envisioned.
    I guess the EPISD can run things like a business and close schools and put kids on busses but are able to help a non-profit provide services to the community at taxpayer expense.

        To arrive at that number, they went back more than twenty years! So, how many elections over that period of time. And, the article also says that there are questions about those voters, but not that they are illegal, or anything else. The headlines are very misleadin.

        The argument is between a progressive POV versus an evolutionary POV. To the progressive, the past is evil because people were not sufficiently progressive. Therefore, it is necessary to denigrate the culture and history of the past. Tear down statues, invalidate its documents and achievements because they were men of their time, not women or the LBGTQAP types lovec by the Left today. Read all about it in Orwell’s 1984.

        To the evolutionist, the question is, “Compared to what and compared to when?” Thus, 50 years ago, Jim Crow was the law in the South. But in 2008, the country elected a black president. The evolutionist calls this progress and expects it will continue. The evolutionist sees no reason to rewrite or denigrate history as long as we’re engaging our problems in the context of the rule of law.

        For example, the progressive loves it that mobs tear down Confederate monuments. The evolutionist wants the fate of such monuments to be decided by legal bodies such as city councils. If they are Democrats, all the better, since Democrats erected them. That is evolutionary progress.

        White fragility is a construct of the Left, academics divorced from reality who can’t see that the average person of any color doesn’t give a damn about who is offended by the past as long as we’re moving in the direction of e pluribus unum and a better future for all.

      And btw, the last time I was in DC those caps were everywhere. Street vendors of all colors were wearing and many were selling them. Cab drivers had them. The kids probably bought them to fit in. They appear to be popular with tourists.
