  1. Where does your tax money go (NC version)?

    the point was a raise was going to happen for the first time in many years but the focus wasn't on that for some odd brainwashed reason. https://www.google.com/amp/amp.newsobserver.com/news/local/education/article203186954.html And budget cuts always suck no matter the profession. Here is a more recent budget cut https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wral.com/state-board-of-education-approves-2-5m-in-budget-cuts-/16840289/%3fversion=amp

    the salary has changed quite a bit from even 2014. the teachers went almost 6 or 7 years without a raise. then McCrory gets a raise on the table and the cynics cry it's for votes. so dumb. now the Charlotte superintendent is giving more raises and State is pushing for more.

    Not sure how the conservative label of the workmen add to this but ok. Then I would bet most on the school councils are libs and they control the money so we see how that works. lol In a nutshell you describe the main issue of the mindset when its other people's money. I bet if you ran schools as cost centers and incentivize the principal or superintendent to find savings or ding them for upkeep or having too many outdated things it would change quickly. I still contend many? not all school districts poor mouth or let stuff go because they will use that as a political fulcrum each election. Had a former roommate in college just recently run for school board in Charlotte. He is black but ran as independent and instantly caught heat for that and also instantly was deemed radioactive by Black Political caucus. But he ALSO caught heat for saying how he would communicate and show how money is spent and the sports budgets. He said no matter what group he spoke to they didn't want to hear that. He said there was a young girl will little to no experience in the school system but who checked all the right political boxes was pushed to the fore to win. Basically a puppet. This why schools stay the same year after year after year after year. .

    Have you ever requested access to see the budget for the State and local? Be curious to see what you come up with. I think far too many school districts do a horrible job of properly allocating the funds they do get. And some sandbag to constantly get money for their own gain.
  5. there have been many more bubbles and Freddie and Fannie were the last to pay off their TARP money. the Dodd act was a dog and pony show to cleanse those two flabby messes of any guilt for screwing all of us. repealing Glass Stegall was ground zero for what happened in 2008.
  6. The Walking Dead season 8

    dont do chocolate chips but coconut pecan cookies from Harris Teeter has a narcotic hold on me.
  7. love Vue. Use thru Roku and have Netflix and redbox beta for now. like someone said I may buy 1 month or get a trial just to watch a particular show. I up the package on Vue during football season then back to the low tier after. MLB I may do free trial stuff or watch a game on its app in Roku. edit- to add I also use antenna and easily get 45 channels

    not watched since 2nd ep in S7. just couldn't roll with the video game big boss at the end of the level anymore.
  10. you should care who writes the rules. I have tremendous disdain for both these idiots and their amazing inability to properly lead the very thing they were entrusted to do. Cap requirements need to be smart. you cant tell a bank to increase cap requirements then turn around and tell them to loan money. cognitive dissonance ftw. most, if not all bubbles happened due to too much govt encroachment. oh but speaking of bubbles. the bond market says hi.
  11. name me 2 other Senators who directly benefited more than either Frank or Dodd from big banks or mortgage companies...
  12. A Quiet Place

    as 9/11 was going on in real time after my building shut down in uptown Charlotte I had the surreal experience of being with my wife as she had an ultrasound for our second child. I have just 2 kids because of that day.
