  1. That is true across most of Texas. Schools can kick you out with bad behavior. But that stuff won't happen if you are sending them extra dollars, meaning that the district will head downhill, because administrations want money more than discipline in schools these days. But hey lookie, his county allows choice--which is what I have been telling you from the beginning. Imagine that?
  2. Reading your last Question, kind of makes wonder, if we can extend that opportunity to "education", why not extend all tax dollars to every whim in this country. Heck, give me my tax dollars so I can buy an airplane, a bus, a car, a vacation--I am sure you'll tell me to buy my own stuff. Private education is exactly the same thing, you want it, earn it/buy it.
  3. Lawsuits are just beginning for the next 4 years. Like they did for the last 4 years, and the 8 years prior. Nothing happens, except more and more lawyers make buck, while Americans lose jobs, income, and their pursuit of Happiness, all because we allow CRIMINALS into our country.
  4. And I posted the other day, there are 6.5 million jobs open right now in the United States. 6.5 million more workers, means they are spending more money, meaning other places have to hire more personnel, which means more jobs for more workers. Imagine, less than 1 year ago, we have a workforce that was basically full employment, then we have this wonderful virus and not we have 16 million needing food. Just how far have we fallen with shutdowns and mandates.
  5. But it is NOT fair, because one school district might not have as high of property taxes as another school district. So some kid from Elkhart is not going to get enough money to go to a private school in Tyler, so where does the rest of the money come from? But the fact is LOCAL PROPERTY TAXES stay in the local property tax district--that is just plain common sense....Doesn't matter if the money is earmarked for education, building maintenance, or whatever, it stays with the local TAX DISTRICT. Would I be for getting to earmark my tax dollars--heck yes, who wouldn't want to....but
  6. That is one way to look at it. But it also helps out in elections, when you can elect people who will promise to cut spending instead of creating more taxes. IT can go either way, but a great amendment would be to have a balanced budget amendment with a growth percentage attached that congress could NOT go over. Such as 1% more than the year before. Awe--wishful thinking. LOL.
  7. I am NOT wrong, because property taxes are based on TAXES of property in a designated area. Taking those dollars from one property designated area and giving it to another is nothing more that REDISTRIBUTION of WEALTH. Again, you don't seem to understand that KIDS already have the right to choose where they want to go to school. All you are wanting is what I said before--the REDISTRIBUTION of WEALTH. What do you expect to happen, some kid from Woden is going to take his tax dollars and head to Southlake--are schools going to have to put in dorms, so those long distance kids have so
  8. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/mlb-world-mourns-death-of-atlanta-braves-legend-hank-aaron/ar-BB1d06l1?li=BBnb7Kz Good bye Hank--I hope you enjoy the big ball park in the sky!!!!!
  9. Yes, we've talked about this before, local taxes stay local--you don't get to earmark your own taxes. That has NEVER been done in this country. And there is no way in the world that the amount you pay in your local property taxes is going to pay to keep a poor kid in private school. It IS NOT enough money. School choice is there, you just have to move or accept the conditions that are presented. But the school choice that our state legislators want you to think you get is nothing but a way for rich white folks to get their money back for sending their kids to exclusive private scho
  10. THAT IS NOT FUNNY--I work with a lot of those Turni.....students daily!!!!!! LOL
  11. And remember the old saying about opinions...... LOL
  12. Maybe it is, I will have to read the article again, when I get time. But they keep saying a penny a trans action, so maybe I put the wrong percentage down. When I find it, I'll share it, but then again, I could be wrong a heck on the numbers, but it still effects me monthly. Don't care how much it is, the government DOES NOT deserve more money from me or anyone else, until they can learn to live within a balanced budget.
  13. Get ready for an onslaught of attacks by the leftists. They will conclude that this article is "fake news", and all lies, because Trump only told lies for 4 years, colluded with Russia, and was a fascist. But look at the bright side, uncle joe has already wiped out 2 of those accomplishments, without reading the science or understanding. We will not be dependent upon foreign oil again, because he has cut the keystone pipeline and cause at least 11,000 people to be unemployed. And drilling on federal land. And he is rejoining the Paris Climate Accords, so we can pay Chin
  14. I am in total agreement with you. And now they are pushing a .01% tax on every stock transaction. Read about it this morning. That means that every month when money is taken out for my 403B plan, I have to pay 1 cent for every dollar they put into my accounts. While that does not seem like a lot--but if I put in $100 a month--That's a dollar per month, $12 a year, for that one account. Imagine if I am putting $1000 dollars a month away? Or if they do this to TRS retirement systems, every month, more comes out. According to article, you will have to work extra 2.5 years to have the same amount
  15. I loved his press secretary saying "he was celebrating". And whoever said the follow up question should have been "if I am celebrating, does that mean I don't have to wear a mask" was dead ON!!!!! Freaking hypocrites, just hours after telling everyone else in the country they have to wear a mask on federal property, planes, trains, and buses. Again, it's "do as I say, not as I do". What a great mentality by the left. Bu then look at our resident leftists and see how they act.
