Few of us know, how deep the cancer reaches. Still waters run deep.
I said this investigation would come to nothing and it would all get swept under the rug from Day 1, right here. And now it has come to pass. Evidence likely exists, of crimes committed by people still in power, which will never see the light of day. Just like 3-Wire, YVHA, our pet police station, and any number of other fiascos -- it's getting awful dirty, under that rug.
If I had more detailed information to provide, I wouldn't anyway, fearing some sort of accident, that's how deep they run... but the little I do know, tells me it's business as usual in the 'Boat. The Powers That Be in this town are untouchable. The trials and meetings are morality plays, the outcomes predetermined behind closed doors, often over drinks. A few heads might roll, scapegoats and minor players, to protect the regime -- and the shell game moves on, nothing to see here, move along, but look over there now!!
Maybe the thing to do is to go ahead and vote for this albatross, then buy up the school bonds which are issued. Municipal bonds are supposed to be a good investment. That way we'll get our money back from the poor losers who didn't.
But wait... if I can barely afford rent and buy my clothes at LiftUp -- partially because they robbed me to begin with -- how am I gonna buy into this school, Intel, or anybody else?
I lost money in the stock market, I lost money in Vegas -- follow me around; I lose money all the time. I need better investment advice. But I try not to throw it away whenever I can. Meanwhile I'll stick with my NO vote, and see what they come back with next time.
Those unreleased reports must implicate a person or people still in power, or what would be the problem releasing them? So the cancer continues unabated, a few pesky symptoms have been removed, the criminals have escaped, some might still wear badges, it's been effectively swept under the rug, back to business as usual, there's no more to be seen here. Move along, folks.
Good question. Maybe we judge too soon.
Now I'm thinking back on Carol #1, my best girlfriend ever, high school... shoulda stayed home and married her instead of joining the jarheads... who knows where that might have gone... but we would have had 14 kids in about 10 years 6 months, if my calculations are accurate.
Yer durn tootin. On both counts. You took the bait late, Jeff, I had to chum again for that one.
Russell -- I don't recall calling into question your propensity for procreation -- but I see your arithmetic is up to snuff. Did you pick that up in the Old School, or is that the New Math I heard about 50 years ago? When you just do 0's and 1's like I do, it gets real easy. (snicker snicker)
Jus' funnin' ya Russell, but Cindy raises a good point, 14 IS a little pretentious. His brood alone will tax the system, so of course he wants all the freebies we'll buy him.
(which could explain why I have no kids. I left that one open for somebody)
When one is blessed with superior genes, one is obligated to propagate like rabbits.
Yeah, and for a couple more mils we can call it Yale Prep West, and then watch the demographics jump!!
I guess if this doctor is so educated, we should all pay heed to what he says, those of us of inferior intellect. If he says build what we don't need and don't what we do, that sounds like sage advice to me.
Scott merely seeks an honest discussion of the flawed projections upon which the Yes faction bases their claimed need for us to spend $92 million right now lest our schools turn into slums -- yet nobody seems willing to undertake that discussion; instead, they flaunt their own flawed numbers, further crying the need, it's for the kids, the poor deprived kids...
I see nothing demeaning in Scott's comments. He only points out flawed logic and projections, quite politely, nothing personal in that, unless you take it that way. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. You're the one who turned it up to begin with.
