Thats hilarious!!! knee slapper, rib tickler....
i am surprised that a mention of a DNA Genome specific ray was being tested to see if a particular species could be killed within the rays area of effect,while leaving everything else untouched.....While you WILL get results for such a search on the Net,...I'll just get mum about any other theories and simply raise an eyebrow and give you "that look"
But I thought thats what we have NOW...a handful of people deciding how to divide the "community pot" unequally, thus causing this current event of City VS County. I've already seen the schools under the Government control with "taped over windows".
Under the current system you pay a tax for school whether you have a child who attends or not, the money that is sent in is then quabbled and bickered about by highly paid buearocrats driving BMW's. Which results! in parents and children putting their hands up and saying "WHY CAN'T THIS WORK???
The answer is perfectly clear in the headlines, of why it isn't working.
And your return comment, Sir, is automatically saying that IF parents in a lower per capita area were given the power to get directly involved by choosing a private school to send their kids to, would NOT be proactive and lead to "taped windows".
but if you are refering to the corporate studentship that I was talking about, exactly how could a Company blatantly cater to one community and disregard the other communities when ,most likely ALL communities are potential customers who can BOYCOTT said company for blantant discrimination in the studentship program???
@Jeff....with respect, which part of "tax reduction to put cash into parents hands to make a vote with their dollar on which school their child(ren) will attend."
AND, the motivating factor of "Best education at LOWEST price", by school superintendants.
"Cadillac" schools already dot the countryside, and yes they are expensive, but thats only because they intentfully wish to open the door to a targeted affluent community.
Widespread Competitive privitized schools would immediately spark a price war to fill the school desks with students. I feel that the schools which couple a strong basic education with hands on labor apprenticeship programs will flourish in the lower capita communities (i.e. plumbing, electrical,nursing, administrative), that upon graduation, highschool graduates will be SKILLED LABOR READY. Which is EXACTLY the USA needs!
Exceptional TAG (Talented and Gifted) students could be scouted by higher education schools to become eligible for private studentships to attend those types of schools which garner their student body toward Universities, which then leads to: chemists, doctors, dentists, space and aeronautics, law...). Even invite local corporations to talent scout for future employees, much in the same way that the military and universities scout to fill their ranks and desks (respectively).
Looks like a win-win situation to me, the local job market benefits, the Nation benefits, our youth benefit, and the burden of the public school system is lifted from the bickering politians, that hold all our children at ransom for personal gain.
I propose that ALL(City and County) schools within the borders of Shelby County, be turned over to Private schools, AND that City and County taxes be REDUCED to afford parents the Right to vote with their Dollar where to send their children to school.
"May the school that provides the BEST education, at the LOWEST price, WIN the prestige and respect of all Citizens"!!
Former clients of Backstreet shouldn't see this as an opportunity to raise BS from the ashes, but instead as a chance to open a NEW club, and set a new HIGHER STANDARD for the Memphis GLBT club community!!! I've been around the "scene" for several years, and I quit going simply because I couldn't take the environment, poor stewardship, and the drama.
I think its time for the Memphis GLBT club community to step up with CLASS!! With CLEAN clubs, with respectibility, and engaged involvement in the immediate area to outreach to ALL Memphis citizenry;INSTEAD of the status quo which brands us as a heathenistic, drug addicted, filth-mongering crowd, as such described in the District Attorneys charges against Backstreet!
The charges not only condemn Backstreet, and its owner, but also the community at large who patroned it!!!
A proper and classy club, will attract the same, and demonstrate to the rest of the community that such a club can co-exist and be successful.
