15.00 for flipping burgers? You are flippin crazy or out of your flippin mind. I have a kid with a college degree that we busted our butts to provide, they now work at a bank for less than 15.00 an hour. I agree with jesse 110%, these jobs are more about learning to get your butt out of bed and getting to work on time in preperation for a real job, never intend to be someones life goal - all this just proves why Americans are slipping in the world. This entire subject just flips me out...
Are you really that stupud? " Taxpayers should be glad to award spousal benefits to employee's gay partners" and "doing so will improve the quality of the work force". Why would you think that I would want to pay more taxes and fund more benifits? Isn't that why you guys elected the current President, freebies? The Affordable Health Care Act will solve this issue so before we jump in there and start breaking the bank lets see what President Wonderful has already planned. There is no reason to get ourselves painted in a corner so quick.
One queer councilman was elected and the first act is to start a new policy that will cost taxpayers millions of dollars in a few short years.
I don't support it, I don't care what two peopke want to do. Marriage is no longer taken seriously, the divorce rate will confirm that. I do wish we could spend this much time and effort addressing real problems rather than creating them. We have nuclear weapons being pointed at us and we are too busy worring about whos humping who. Also, EASY123 the attitude you have saying "No one gives a damn if you agree" is wrong and about 99.9% of the entire problem. Now if EASY123 does not give a damn what AndrewLohr agrees with that's fine. I, for one, care about what each of you agree to eveb though I agree with Andrew, he an I will not be the deciding factors when the courts do the wrong thing - the minority groups (not blacks) will make the most noize and get the results they want. Always have, always will.
Travel Shallowford Road between Commons and Jenkins on your way to vote. This is a PRIME example of Jack Bensons leadership and the exact same way he has reoresented us on the City Council. First the project was only done for CBL and Ken DeFour. Second, it has cost twice what they estimated, Third it has taken three times longer to complete than scheduled and is still less than half way complete, Fourth, go by any time this week and you will count the numebr of poeple on the job site on one hand (and their hands will be in their pockets, Fifth, ask Jack about it at the gas station (as I did) and he will look at you because he dosen't have a clue, Sixth, thats the project that is located within 4 blocks of his door step and he has to pass it everytime he leaves, JACK - IF THIS IS YOUR EXAMPLE OF LEADERSHIP YOU TOO SHOULD VOTE FOR LARRY. SHALLOWFORD ROAD ALONE HAS ME WORKING AGAINST YOU. Why don't you plaster that road with your "stab em' in the back Jack" re-election posters? With the money you've made off the defour's and CBL you can afford to take a long vacation (or a hike)!
Piss on him. You play, you pay. They should have killed the bastard. This is not a black/white issue. It is about doing what you are told when you are told to do it. If the TFP has been "more investigative lately" then why did the not include the attack on the worker last year at the same Salvation Army where a guard was nearly beaten to death? I don't want my ass beat so you can bet that I will do what I've been told - when I am told to do so.
Roger Tudor is for Roger Tudor, nobody else. He is rude, crude and will do whatever it takes for him to come out on top. Always has, always will.
Is this the same Tom McC that did the bankrupt number on David Brainerd School and then F@@ked over the kids there? Or the same one that walked out on the kids from Signal Mountain? Yes, I think it is and I can't believe he has the balls to run for an office. Wake up district 1, he will do a number 2 on you!
Do you really want to look at the problem in Chattanooga> It's right above you on a tab called "right2know". Look under Chattanooga City Government and look how many hundreds of thousands of dollars our city government waste on salaries alone , tack on the benefits and we are talking millions. There is your problem.
inquiringmind, all I said was "I disagree" and you respond that I am a racist? Houston, I think we have a problem here...
Cut everything 15% across the board and introduce a spending freeze for 3 years.
