Dignity Village (the project of this sort that has the longest track record I have been able to find in the US) is providing housing at less than 1/3 the cost of putting people in "shelters". The residents of the community have a "buy in" similar to that of Habitat for Humanity and are self governed (each adult resident commits to weekly labor on the premises and that includes security) It works!
It really doesn't matter whether ECB "wants" the bus drivers to join the teamsters, they already have. I am loving the idea of the kids taking pictures. Launch a social media campaign!
I personally don't want anyone dumping chemicals on my head who doesn't know what they are doing and I expect my government to make insure that I don't have to personally make sure that the people who are in "the business" are qualified to do their job.
Billy, I don't know where you get your idea that paramedics need less training than cosmetologists do. By my calculation to get a degree from TTC as a paramedic one needs over 3000 hours education and training.
Eh, get yourself a marshmallow gun anyway (or build one out of pvc pipe so you don't add to the coffers of the NRA) My daughter's boyfriend likes the one she made him for Christmas except that teh marshmallows really aren't edible after using them as ammo (ie they get on the ground/floor and get dirty)
As a retired homeschool parent who willingly paid taxes and even actively campaigned for school bond referendums in Berkeley county, I have to agree with Matt to a great degree. The truth is my (and your) tax dollars are NOT paid to "better our own children" they are paid to ultimately better our society by educating a new generation of informed taxpayers and voters. We tried to "play the public school game" when our children were in early elementary school but realized that when it is YOUR child it is 100% and while the state was willing to provide a "minimally adequate" education we wanted more for our children and because we could afford to do it we did. I understand parents deciding to put their child in a different environment but have a major issue with them expecting me, the taxpayer, to fund it (through charters, magnets or private school/homeschool vouchers)
