Gidget, you do get it. Mountain Laurel and Just one womam are city employees. We are filing open records to the city IT server for these dates and times. These folks are defending the theft of public resources.
LOL Go for it! That might prove quite interesting. I doubt you will publish your findings. But I would love to see it.
Mountainlaurel, stick your head in a mountain rock because you are not interested in the truth, and the FACT that Missy Crutchfield runs a private LLC on the taxpayers dime. While that does not obviously bother you, it does the majority of taxpayers, and further it is illegal use of public resource. So, you dare right Missy Crutchfield needs to go, and I am in very very good company with that opinion that is based in fact. Try something new for a change and read.
April, you are starting to sound jealous. Were you up for the job when Missy got it? You know, I might take you more seriously had you been up in arms when all the others were doing private work on county and city time. Missy might have been doing wrong, I don't know well enough to comment yes or no. But I do know that to me, you sound jealous.
"stick your head in a mountain rock", Really?!! Cause your truth is all there is, right?..... Grow up!
Montainlaurel - you just don't get it. It's not the city's responsibility to provide aesthetic, cultural or educational experiences/enrichment to residents or visitors. The creative and talented folks who fill this city should have the opportunity to build businesses which provide aesthetic, cultural and educational experiences without having to compete with the government.
I think it is Gidget that does not get it. It IS the city's job to provide and mantain public areas. And while I might not agree with the money being spent during bad economic times. I cannot agree that culture should only be for those that can afford to pay for it. Gidget, are you saying that only those that could afford the beauty a private business can provide, should be able to see art? Or do you really not know what a city does?
As soon as I saw the cut and paste from Con, I cringed. (I think Con has a thing for Al but that's another story.) I, like most, are really tired of this constant sinning/judging from con to the point that I don't even read his stuff anymore. But Al, you chewed him up and spit him out. That was fun to watch. Dont ever stop. It often becomes tiresome and we tend to just let them rant. But ever so often, someone like you will have had enough and the result is that we are blessed with posts such as yours. My hat is off to you Sir!
Because Con can't count........
Betty Bowers Explains Traditional Marriage to Everyone Else.
That would make WalMart the welfare queen, aye? Any company that doesn't pay a living wage is subsidized by us, the taxpayers.
Lansing – Less than 24 hours after Governor Snyder signed his damaging “Right to Work” legislation into law, analysis shows that the flawed legislation may not even have the result the Governor claimed it would, raising serious questions about whether the Republican leadership even read the language of the bills before voting it through and signing it into law.
“It's become increasingly clear that the Governor presented the legislature with bills written by out-of-state extremists who had no understanding of Michigan's constitution or how our laws apply to Michigan workers,” said Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer. “This is what happens when the Governor does an 11th hour about face in a lame duck session showing utter contempt for our people by cutting out all public input, scrutiny and debate. That isn't leadership, it's epic incompetence .”
Isn't it ironic that the ones that cry state's rights are also the ones that would rather the federal government just handle it for them. Hilarious!
Spot on! Rickaroo, I certainly do agree. I hear so many speak the talking points of no spending. It is like saying, well hun, since we are carrying a note on the house and car, we can't buy groceries. Anyone with a bank loan does deficit spending. The trouble is they don't understand it. Or they are too short sighted to see the big picture.
from the editorial......"Wanting taxes raised on them to even the playing field is revenge?
Think again. Such a move will cause serious consequences to the consumer by raising prices on every facet of your lives: Walmart, manufacturers, oil companies, etc."
What did you call it when the Bush Tax Breaks happened in the first place? Do you not see that you are reverse descriminating?
When this great country was in full economy swing, the tax rate for the rich was 95%. The tax rate on capital gains is now 15%, less than the working man's 27%. So exactly who do you think is getting the shaft here? If the rich do not want to pay their FAIR share, let em move. They use cheap labor abroad anyway. They are the welfare queens. Let em go.
