Thank you Uber and Lyft for making for hire transportation easy and efficient and thus lowering the drunk driving rate.
"It's Sierra Club's position that we need to leave all fossil fuels, including gas, in the ground." Scott Banbury
Just curious... What is powering the boat that Mr. Banbury is piloting?
Welcome to reality unionized government workers. We private sector workers have our benefits change every year. If you are unhappy with your benefits, you are welcome to test the job market to look for a better opportunity if you feel you are not valued.
As far as the huge increase in monthly premiums that no one can seem to afford, this is the case because the plans that these workers have currently are "Cadillac" plans with virtually no out of pocket expenses other than the premium itself. The city has encouraged you to explore additional coverage through the Obamacare exchanges, a government program which I am sure your union supported. You can find lower premiums there. Both my wife and I lost our PPO plans last year. Our out of pocket health care costs have gone up a lot as well. So much for "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
Vasquez not withstanding, the other teams can have the past players. Lowry gets the most pub, but he is a physical, get in the lane point guard and that doesn't match as well with our bigs.
Would still love to have Vasquez as a back up at his pay rate vs quality. Q-Pon is rounding out to be a very sold and balanced player, but a good point guard is still more valuable.
... and Rudy Gay looked as lazy as ever. 3 of 17 shooting with zero assists. What a waste of talent.
The pension structure needs to be changed before any taxes increase.
John, the property tax and sales tax affect businesses much more than residents. This is just another reason to move a business out of the core or into Mississippi.
And we wonder why people are leaving the city.
My wife is from Brazil. She is Latina, not Hispanic.
Does all this matter. I guess it depends on who asks who.
But if the question is asked, the distinction matters. Is a Hatian (most Hatians) Black? Yes. Is a Hatian Hispanic? Yes. If a Hatian is seen walking down Poplar, would it be correct to refer to them as African American as would probably happen? Of course not.
I wish none of this mattered unless your doctor wanted to know your ancestry for health reasons. Most of the time, the only reason this matters is political.
