Re: “Suburbs Hang a "Bagel" on Unified Schools; How Should Memphis Respond?

Thanks for telling me about zillows!! What a great sight!!!

Here is what I learned!!!!!

Gosh!!! That's awfullll!!!! That is, unless you live in midtown or downtown. Maybe that explained a few things. Like, maybe those people run everything into the ground while their property value rises because they don't need schools?

I don't know what do you think? Do families buy property in midtown or downtown?

It isn't my fault you "progressives" no longer know which end is up. Maybe I should say "which end of the match to light"?

Whatever.

Local control. Municipal home rule. Progressivism.

You do the math.

Maybe these words from a lyric entitled "Rock it for Me" (Caravan Palace, not Ella) will help form understanding...

"Bad boys" are not so picky 
They ride away and feel so happy 
To fight for girls they do adore 
Snorting like boars rolling on the floor 
With their leather jacket and their rocky voice 
They hit, fight, kick, wreak havoc and rejoice 
Nobody knows what they are looking for 
A kind of battle axe or maybe more

All of that is interesting, but doesn't have anything to do with the school funding structure, which is what I and my friend were talking about.

Did you miss it?

Surely not!

Should have written "only if you DON'T take in to account".

Sorry about that!

@Musa

Only if you take into account the fact that in order to believe what he, and you believe, y'all have to completely ignore the fact that both city and county schools are listed on everyone's county property tax bill, which just came in the mail. Today.

That's right. The truth is right there in front of you. You just can't see it. Neither can he. And you know what. That isn't my fault. It's yours. And his.
