Incognito was fun while it lasted.
Oh sure, I could come down to your level. But I take my elevator shoes off for no one.
This makes me happy. Very very happy. Now....where did I put those stillettos?
For the first time in over 20 years I have been forced to live more than a mile from where I work. I don't like it. But I have tried to be a good Memphian. If there is one thing Memphis doesn't like, it's a good Memphian. I live in Memphis-for now-but I'll be vacating soon. There is abolutely nothing here for me-and I say that with sadness.
Along with a fully functioning consolidated school system, light rail to the airport and low property taxes, I'm really enjoying the new Bass Pro in the Pyramid.
What I find interesting is the lack of *anything* from Hollywood or entertainers in general. Don't those folks usually jump on this kind of stuff?
It's pretty simple. People don't run the Government any longer.
I'm pretty ancient but isn't fourth or fifth grade the first year that girls don't have cooties? He might have pulled little Martha's pigtails and she planted one on him. And he sorta kinda didn't get cooties.
You may never come back to this page, but I stand corrected. You were right on the taxes. All go to TDZ and no payroll. Opps.
It's my understanding that only a portion of the sales tax goes to directly back into the TDZ. The rest still goes to the state. As well, this is not just a tax on existing residents, but a tax on outside dollars coming into the City/State. Outside dollars helps no matter what. Recycling our own money is not smart business.
As far as payroll tax, I paid someone payroll taxes. In fact, I remember my employees up in arms a few years back because the City Council was considering raising payroll taxes.
Unless something changed that I am unaware. But I do agree with you that it is the "hidden way of doing things" that bothers me too.
