Leslie, You have a right to be concerned. Corporate Money and the Politicians bought by Them now are no different than when the Patriots dumped Tea into the Boston Harbor Years ago due to Taxation without representation as a protest against the East India Tea Company and Their bought and paid for Politicians.

There are ways to get the Republican's attention and that is with Money or the lack thereof. They (Pubs) have eliminated the taxes on Franchise Fees so the People Who own Franchises could profit even more. They are the ones who own the Hardees, McDonalds, Chevy, Ford and all other Car Dealerships, Pro Sports Teams and many more Who can afford to Pay the Politicians for their votes.

How to correct this ? How about a Month of not patronizing Franchises at all and buying from Local Folks?

An even more powerful statement that would get immediate results is that if EVERY Teacher and Teacher's Assistants would call in sick for a Month or so with the McCrory, Tillis, Berger and Rucho Flu ! :!thinking:

Please do not believe the lies our leaders are telling us about the great 7% "on average" teacher raise and how it's the biggest raise ever. There's alot hidden in the words "on average". This is just a political game that's really a form of wealth redistribution. Some new teachers will get a raise as high as 18% and some experienced teachers will get less than 1%. What they don't want the public to know is that they are taking away our longevity pay which is a lump sum bonus beginning at 10 years and ranging from 1.5% - 4.5% and giving it to new teachers! This is our reward for persevering through all the junk and for our experience. We are the ones who help the new teachers getting 18% bonuses, yet they treat us in a despicable manner. Some teachers will lose money. A teacher in year 29 will lose their 4.5% longevity and get a "raise" of 1.67%, resulting in a LOSS of 2.83%. I wish we could give our leaders a "raise" like this. How about we give them a "raise" but subtract a percentage of the state budget as an incentive to spend less? On a personal level, I will not get my longevity check on Aug. 31 that I have gotten for the last 12 years. I had already planned what bills to pay with it since I haven't been paid since May 31. Instead it will go to a new teacher for an 18% raise. This is a slap in the face, a violation of my contract, and a new form of wealth redistribution. I hope everyone will remember this and we can clean house come election time! Every profession rewards workers for seniority, even fast food restaurants. Why do our leaders want beginning teachers to make as much as experienced teachers?

I really enjoy the old photos posted by Lewis Smith. I was wondering if there are any landmarks or date for the one of 105 E Mercer Mill.

Let us all say a Prayer Today for the Central and South American Parents and Grand Parents Who have used Their life savings to send Their Children to the "Shining City on the Hill" for safe Haven. Surely Their Hearts are hurting Today. Let's do Our part as Christians to open Our Hearts and Homes to the Children.

Let's show them open Arms, instead of a clenched Fists. :o

The article about the school supplies is wonderful. I manager a low income housing and I have approximately 29 students between the prek and college. I am trying to find a way to fund schools supplies for the children. At this point they will be coming out of my pocket. I believe it is a great idea to help the students with school supplies. Just imagine how a child feels to start school without any school supplies. Any little amount will help.
Great Job Toni

The pain is felt by all tax paying citizens about how our tax money is being spent.

Those who are Christians are also concerned about our school system allowing sports events to be scheduled on mid=week prayer service nights. That seems to be an accepted thing for many years now.

Now the Lord's Day is being attacked by allowing our impressionable young people to participate in school sponsored events on the Lord's Day. What's so wrong with starting a tournament a day earlier or even better not having any games scheduled on the Lord's day. Don't get me wrong, I know the Lord's Day was made for man and not man for the Lord's Day. The question arises as to how many of our school young people and their coaches are finding themselves in the Church house on the Lord's Day and on mid=week prayer service night. Our priorities seem to have the same "sucking sound" that one poster says is coming from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. If our "blind leaders" fall into the ditch, where do we expect the young people being led to end up. God have mercy on us, and if we are not willing to wake up; rest assured there is One who will wake us up eventually. May it not be too late for any of us.

One last thing, football practice will soon start for our two high schools, may the coaches be challenged to not practice on mid-week prayer service night.

I like this quote better

"You are completely entitled to your opinions that are not supported by evidence. But the moment you spread that opinion as fact, you are a liar. And if you spread it as fact knowing it is not supported by evidence you are both a liar and a fraud". -Occam's Razor

There is much to be said about presenting a calm, steady, and phlegmatic front. It’s another thing entirely to go out for a Cheeseburger In Paradise while pretending nothing out of the ordinary was happening. One demonstrates leadership, and the other its opposite. That sucking sound at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the leadership vacuum at full bore.

about sums things up doesn't it
