On Projected lower deficit could slow any budget deal
Are you kidding me? How could a budget deal get any slower?
On Poll finds support for school-funding increase
Actually donnaw most things I read, or watch, do say the 'wealthy' contributed much of the money. It's not an indictment of people.....most of us try to minimize our taxes.
I posted this before on a different article about the State budget surplus. The surplus is nationwide and is in large part because individuals paid taxes in 2012 to avoid tax increases in 2013....... this resulted in the surplus and will probably result in lower collections in 2013.
On Education helps build awareness of white privilege
In my view there are many inequalities in this country as there are in other countries. While I'm no authority on other countries I'd guess that a white male living in Japan, China, Nigeria etc. would be whispered about and stereotyped.It is also my view that most of the privilege in this country is reserved for the economically advantaged. Recently there has been a spate of articles about the challenges that the economically disadvantaged place on our educational system......my guess is that the majority of these children are white. Am I to believe that a white child living in poverty has 'white privilege'? How about those in poverty who have alcoholic or drug abusing moms/dads etc., are underfed, and not cared for at home? Do they have the security of 'white privilege'? It takes money to bestow privilege in this country.I'm not saying that different ethnic groups in this country don't face challenges in our society because of their ethnicity. However, I also abhor painting whites with the broad brush of 'privilege'......it makes the plight of the impoverished white seem somehow less urgent.
On Wisconsin budget gets $500M boost
You can also google 2013 increased tax revenues and get many more similar articles.I'd never knowingly mislead a fine, impartial group such as we have here.....
On Illinois company to lead Janesville city manager search
Whoops....too early in the morning for me.Sorry for the double post.It does seem that with all the emphasis on 'shop locally' that our tax money should be spent in State...but maybe that's just me.
So there are no Wisconsin recruitment firms qualified to do this search?
So there are no Wisconsin search firms qualified to do this search?
The extra money is also being collected this year by all other States and the Federal Govt. It has happened because many wealthy individuals chose to be taxed on items this year to avoid next years tax increases. This has NOTHING to do with State policies.P.S. This will most likely result in a significant decrease in next years tax collections.
