On Parkview School Board OKs borrowing $391,000 for iPad plan
Spedbmp25, I agree they may fall behind and it is good to stay up on technology but rolling out this much of expansive plan isn't wise in a district already strapped, but tell that to the fools that think the money is an endless stream. I will sit back and wait to see how this plays out, hopefully someone with an ounce of common sense and the ability to add and subtract will revise this plan to avoid the damage.
justoneof, learn math. Spending money you don't have doesn't work, I can expand on that 'complicated' concept if you like.
On Evansville Bible group, communty efforts lead to large cross by Highway 14
oneheckofaguy, you got me I am mainstream that's why us libertarians are in power, when does the victim mentality stop with you people?
go 20 miles south to that state and see what kind of a mess the public unions have contributed to, and yes the politicians had a hand at it and the public unions had a hand at giving them that power, it is a vicious broken circle.
oneheckofaguy, look at the state of CA, and yes the union (public) are part of the government and the costs... duh, it was happening here as well, not rocket science, how do you tie your shoes in the morning?
oneheckofaguy, yes and I negotiate those things myself, ok I will play your games, thank you unions of the 1920's the ones that hadn't become a haven for 'victim' mentality and an arm of one particular political party, satisfied? Good lord, broken record, what else do you have? I see you conveniently avoided the fact public unions are bankrupting many states and municipalities, I would avoid that one too if I drank the union kool-aid.
On Gov. Walker proposes income tax cut
not much of a tax cut, needs to be more, much more or lower property taxes, at least it isn't a proposed increase. We are currently the 5th highest taxed state (just behind CA) and nowhere near number 5 in wages, so we need to balance that one way or another, the quickest way is to lower the tax burden across the board.
keep telling yourself all that fluff, glad i won't be on the hook for it. As I said there are ways to accomplish the same things without rolling it out to EVERY kid. But its not their money so they don't care instead they get the warm and fuzzies from the people that blindly follow along with images of futuristic schools.
prounion, I agree completely it is very similar to how union members get angry when outsiders point out how damaging unions are to private business and how public unions are bankrupting many communities and states, excellent observation by you.
justoneof, you are right I don't care, you should be concerned with a district that is spending money they admittedly don't have when there are other ways to accomplish the same goals, but like usual people sit on their hands and get all warm and fuzzy with these type of proposals without looking at the long term consequences of those programs. At what point do any of these genius school board members or teachers go out and find experts in these industries that can develop programs at an economical cost? They are no different than the clowns in government they think there is an endless supply of money so they just keep going. So yes justoneof you are right people do sit on their hands and don't speak up, I think you found one in a mirror. Enjoy your iPads that will be obsolete long before the 3rd phase of their plan is implemented and the district will be looking to update at even more added costs.
