Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
This is a matter of practical administration.
I do not understand how my post could be construed for the later or are you trying to make some sort of BS ‘slippery slope’ argument?Should this be only for education, or for all “needs”, on a statewide basis?
Exactly how do you reason that ISDs are useless? Further, how exactly is the State taxing State residents taxation without representation? Oh sure there can be property tax on non-residents but that is no different than the current state of affairs…except it would occur even less often [by definition] since a Texas resident voting at the State level may not live within the ISD that they hold a particular piece of property in.Local gov’ts (ISDs) are thus useless, so they should be abolished to save even more tax money, since taxation without representation is a VERY bad idea.
ISDs are already overseen by the State. There are a number of stipulations and requirements placed on them, and the State has the power to step in and dissolve an ISD.If things are funded at the state level then they should also be controlled at the state level.
EDIT: Not that I have unshakable confidence in Austin on the education front, incidentally.

Where did you get this paranoid jealousy idea from?What is your excuse for not being part of the elite that you seem to be jealous of?
And I would argue that I am part of the "elite" in many ways, at least every way that I feel really matters.
What issue has not been addressed?How about addressing the issue?
We're not their trading partner, we're their trading bitch as in they trade us a lot of crap and we give them a lot of money.Since we are China's biggest trading partner, yes, it helps people here.
When did I make up a bunch of nonsense and attribute it to you?Apparently just following your lead

1. Increase their spending
2. Maintain current spending
3. Cut back on spending
I think any sensible person goes ahead and cuts back just in case, lets things settle down, before cautiously resuming spending at prior levels (or not!). Same goes for most businesses. That's not the psychological behavior of "money hoarding", that's conservative business practice, that most everyone engages in. And you do realize that for most businesses, payroll + benefits is by far the largest expense. Personally I'm even worse than that. I cut down to living well below means *at all times, good or bad*, that way I don't have to constantly re-adjust. Would you prefer business takes that approach instead? (in general, things like R&D for example may need to be maintained for technology roadmap reasons that are not cyclical...meaning you have one less place to make cuts to!).
What do you think happens when jobs are more scarce Tucker, that market labor rates should just ignore supply/demand and remain fixed? That sounds like union-insanity. Most of our economic woes would be fixed if a lot of currently illegal jobs and practices were legalized. Not saying we should, but let's not blame market forces for anything other than the absurd increase in quality of life AND Security we've enjoyed over the past 100+ years.
And another thing, if you're going to make big cutbacks in a business, you can't just do them every week or every month, you want to plan for some months ahead, and cut enough at once to ensure you don't have to make cuts again too soon, for morale, appearances, logistics/cost, etc.
