    Senator Durbin is either uninformed as to what has been going
    on at the organization Acorn which is possible? We saw he is
    clearly uninformed on the current Health Bills.
    If he is informed and is aware then one can only see Senator Durbin
    as a criminal. Someone who tells us the truth is a lie. We have seen 3 different Acorn offices employing people whom have no problem telling others how to breaks our laws in there own words. Senator Durbin condons this behavior he gave Acorn his vote of confidence.
    Character does matter. Senator Durbins is questionable. Very few people spend other peoples money as carefully as they spend there own.
    Senator Durbin see’s no problem sending my money to a group with serious questions. Someone who was working for us would say we need to halt funding until we get a clear understanding about this group and what they are in fact doing with this money. If they got a clean bill of health from the Inspector General that would be different.
    Senator Durbin should have been the one calling for a halt not sitting around waiting for it to happen. He’s always the last one in
    on matters important to the country and our state.

    RE: Obummercare Mar 25 2010 article in Wanderter (just received)

    1. You Chicagoans obviously have difficulty with big words: It’s “Obummercare,” not “Obamacare.”

    2. Do you really think Nancy O. is leading the Hard Left People’s Revolitonary Party of Death and Deficits over a cliff? How wonderful! How many Catholic Bishops who have their ECONOMIC heads buried in a dark collectivist, Marxist hole will go over the cliff with them? Lots, I hope? Health care was definitely better when the Church ran it on its own. Health care on fiat money deficit steroids won’t work. Neither does the Post office, Medicare, socialist security, public education or any other program the Gov’t runs at the federal, state or local level. Wasn’t it Dorothy Day who pointed out the Gov’t doesn’t own the poor? Sorry folks, it looks like they are going to own all of us very shortly. Interest burdened deficit spending and borrowing has raised the cost of college tuition from $250 per year when i went to Loyola U., L.A., in the 1950’s to perhaps 50-100 times that amount today. Nite Law School at USC was about $500/year or semester, I can’t recall which. One of my sons graduated from McGeorge in Sacramento (we always refwerred to it as “McDuck” and hisa tuition for his last year was about $25K. Sorry, the poor could afford education and lots of health care before we all got saddled with unbridled inflation. How the devil do we get out of this mess?

    This is not a response but a concern. When does the Watson corruption stop? It appears never. For more info check the CSU Facility Blog.

    What is the true reason Watson retired before his contract had expired?All appearance is he cut a deal ith the BOT of CSU. Watson announced his retirement effective 01/04/2016 for reason or reasons unknown prior to the term of his contract. Therefore, why is he not in breach of his contract? His contract was until July 2016. I would think that since he opted out of his contract before the contract expired, all provisions in that contract would be nullified. “Breach of contract is a legal cause of action in which a binding agreement or bargained-for exchange is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract by nonperformance or interference with the other party’s performance. If the party does not fulfill his contractual promise, or has given information to the other party that he will not perform his duty as mentioned in the contract or if by his action and conduct he seems to be unable to perform the contract, he is said to breach the contract.”

    Watson’s contract called for him to remain as CSU president until July of 2016? Therefore, since he did not, the BOT does not owe him any provisions in his contract and for sure they do not owe him tenure. The BOT needs to be held accountable for their actions and an apology given to the new president. In addition, a body needs to explore the legality of the BOT’S action regarding these latest episodes with Watson.

    The BOT of CSU do not understand “Black Lives Matter.” The BOT has put “Watson Matters” in front of the university, facility,students anfd tax payers. There needs to be an investigation into the perks Watson received for his early retirement.
