Seafood -- Folk other than GoPer Madfish look at the EVIDENCE rather than at their sorry, MIS-guided Political Faith ! ! !

In a CON-$ervative Community, schools will ALWAYS be deprived.

The Cons thrive on dumb and ignorant voters who starve themselves to feed the 0.1% -- They being $oooooooooooooooooooooooo needy ! ! !

vote no. all that money will wind up lost in a system of spend, spend on non educational needs. create a system that puts schools back in the neighborhoods were the students live, get rid of the antiquated busing issue.

DOAshrimp - You really hit the nail on the head. QUOTE - "how much money has been spent for schools... Trillions?? but we keep hearing of bad results for the dollars spent. Way behind the world in math and reading etc. Do we keep pouring money into this old clunker..or do we try something very different? This isn't working + money isn't the whole problem. 1500-2000 new students a year? WoW! 2-3 new schools a year? Interesting to know where everyone is from + if they are legally entitled. Love NY! Welcome! Darn Shame the people of NYC elected a radical "liberal" Democrat Communist sympathizer to the Mayors spot after Rudy cleaned it up. Why are Americas long term Democrat controlled cities in ruins with corruption, violence + overall decay? Obviously way too much "liberal" control in our schools & Universities.. Easy to see a pattern of Democrat/"liberal" ruin with everything they touch."

Nice LTE Chris but in the back of my mind I'm thinking how much money has been spent for schools... Trillions?? but we keep hearing of bad results for the dollars spent. Way behind the world in math and reading etc. Do we keep pouring money into this old clunker..or do we try something very different? This isn't working and money isn't the whole problem. 1500-2000 new students a year? WoW! 2-3 new schools a year? Interesting to know where everyone is from and if they are legally entitled. Love NY! Welcome! Darn Shame the people of NYC elected a radical "liberal" Democrat Communist sympathizer to the Mayors spot after Rudy cleaned it up.

Just the usual Twaddle that we have all come to expect from The Seafood, never touching on the issues -- Just Twaddling along ! ! ! -- Like a "GOOD" Pol

What on earth can possibly motivate the public spewing of such rank BS ? ? ? -- Apart from some attic problems.

The poor things a-livin on stained and troubled con-droppins and got his self all riled a-thinkin he's a-slinkin down into an angree black well hole of Merican servitude all the while a-watchin King Midas a-hordin Right in plain daylight while he's livin on con biscuits. That's terrible! Yet, just too proud to ask fer a loan straight out...I do ad-mire that in a humble man.

Chris, I beg to differ :

"Conservatism" actually refers to the political, economic and social stances of most Elites and also of those rather comical “Wanna-Be” Elites -- Folk who blink not even once while the lion's share of the wealth of the nation continues to be hoarded -- in broad daylight, Midas-Style -- into the coffers of the Elite, (Much of that moved by Tax-Stealth and by criminal violence imposed upon our environment).

Altogether, these are Folk who faithfully and obediently "Belly-Up to the Big-Buck" on virtually every political, economic and social i$$ue.

Meanwhile, most of the masses of we Americans – shamefully obediently -- struggle to live on the Con-Leavings -- That while we necessarily exist in a troubling, ever-deepening state of corporate-conceived and approved unAmerican "Conservatude" ! !

You have called attention to at least ONE stain on your record regarding taxes.
