I can pay the same tax rate I'm paying now and have Penn State receive a more appropriate appropriation if taxes are applied to businesses in the state such as those in the natural gas industry.

Again why should tax payers, individuals or businesses, pay any of the costs of your non mandatory higher education?


here in CA tuition at state colleges is going up 9%, if students or their families don't want to pay it, they do not have to go.

Pa. state pension system records show Paterno in line for six-figure annual benefit

By Associated Press, Tuesday, November 15, 7:04 PM

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno’s long service at the university theoretically puts him in line for a pension of more than $500,000 a year, according to an Associated Press analysis of state public pension records.

Paterno’s pension records obtained Tuesday from the State Employees’ Retirement System credit him with more than 60 years in the system. The formula used to determine benefits makes him eligible for a pension equal to 100 percent of the average of his three highest-salary years.

His pay rose from $541,000 to $568,000 over the past three full calendar years.

When Paterno retires, he will have to make a set of choices to determine his pension, including whether to designate a survivor to receive benefits after he dies and whether to obtain a one-time, lump-sum payment of his own contributions.
As Headache stated, this is a discussion for elsewhere...but c'mon...you're equating roughly a half million annually for Paterno's salary and subsequent pension to Penn State costing too much? When the football program (Which was until a week ago essentially Joe Paterno) nets roughly $50 million profit annually for the school...you're smarter than that man.

As part of Penn State being a state university, the university has to put millions of dollars of time and resources into state-requested research projects.

You seem to be making the argument that no tax money should go to any public university. Is that the road you want to go down?

So now McQueary (sp?) is saying he DID go to the police.

Okay. So .... what did the police do? Did they do nothing as well? Or did they do an investigation and kept it under the radar?

and if he did go to the police, does that mean he lied to the grand jury? one would think they would have put that in there...

so he's either a perjurer or a liar?

He's using a technicality. Part of Schultz's duties was to oversee the University Park Police Department, so as far as he was concerned, he did technically meet with the police.
