So. People are upset because Kansas City's new school superintendent from Pueblo COLORADO wants to close schools and cut teachers because of the max exodus of students from the overpaid, overfunded KCSD! Funkhauser's an accountant. Accountants know you can't take ten pounds of money out of a five pound bag! Everybody in America has cut back except the bankers. And the KCMO school distruct.
I've cut back. Love to have a new car but more than one payment is enough for us. And a bigger, big screen TV, now that prices are low enough to just write a check for it. Remember when they were at Sears for $9.995 not that long ago?
We Americans need to get used to cutting back. Did any of you see Paul Volker former Treasury guy on Sunday talk?
He's right. We need manufacturing jobs back BUT IT WILL NEVER BE THE WAY IT WAS!. Asia will work for pennies because they don't have all this Five Star Health Care, private room with cable and triple the number of body scans, and two car garages and cars to fill em.
Fact is, NO body scans. And families bring food to their hospitalized kin. And buy fancy medical heart parts off the black market. Surgeons will INSTALL them but hospitals won't BUY them. In China, you're only allowed once child. Chinese are very serious when their only child is in medical deep shit! People take high speed trains to work, built by the government and US import dollars. And willing to love modestly, and with grandma.
No state Medicaid-paid, nursing homes HERE for Grandma!! She just dies without a valient $50,000 last ditch ICU effort to save her so she can go back to the nursing home for a few more months.
STOP. So this. This isn't China. This is AMERICA, JACK! Do you want to pay for a few more nursing home months for grandma with all those incidents of shortness of breath, or heart palpitations, and nurse aids feeding her babyfood.... , or spend those same state TAXDOLLARS to pick up a FULL TUITION RIDE for her grand-child to get a college degree, or trade school skills and then a good lifetime job?
Whereas US families today expect a cab ride to a hospital paid hotel! What a bunch of shit we ratepayers have to pay for spoiled, demanding Americans who are too quick to sick channel five on the health care industry for being 'uncaring!!'
The right, and their minions, need to STFU and lisen to reason. Ya can't have it both ways. Can't support NASA engineers on space travel to do experiments in the space lab, and say that alcoholics here in town can't get heath care when all of them need to do inpatient treatment if they have any hope of getting off the bottle.
?What screwed up thinking Republican elitists have! Can't wait for their banks to call in their Olathe and Leawood mortgage loans and seize their houses after they're beached from their six figure job for a few months after taking long-shot, greedy, financial risks !
I loved what Paul Volker said last Sunday. Don't bail out the bankrupt banks. Liquidate them.
Put all those bad decision-makers out of work! Whatever you do, don't REWARD them with a government bailout!
What a great idea! No problem with unjustified bonuses a few months later.
That was a GREAT idea!
