    Here’s what Colbert and Stewart do well:  they point out how rediculous some of our policies (on both sides of the political spectrum) are in a humorous way, and simplify it so that the points become powerful.  Anyone read “Earth” yet?  When reading it, you can’t help but see how nuts we humans can be at times. 
    I don’t care if you drink PBR at Raleigh Times, or sip martinis at the Country Club… this stuff is worth watching, because it smacks the FoxNews/MSNBC right out of you.

    I know some friends of mine aren’t happy about being featured nationally like this, but I for one couldn’t be happier.  I’m glad that the wrongheaded and backwards policies of our Board of Segregation are being nationally mocked for exactly what they are.

    I am a little concerned that the attention John is getting could somehow work in his favor, making him some sort of conservative celebrity.

    John, if you’re reading this, I’m still waiting for a plan, and some numbers to back up your assertions. Less time doing interviews, more time working. OK?

    Clearly the only real solution to this problem is to relocate all of the black people out of southeast Raleigh and distribute them throughout the county.  We could even use some of the buses(just the front seats, of course) that won’t be needed for the diversity program when we round them up.

    Pick a horse.  It can’t be about re-segregating schools and the implications of a return to Jim Crow and be an attack on economic diversity in schools.  Especially because the people who oppose the board’s policies are considered racists.  Racists are usually poor and ignorant. 
     
    Although, racists are pretty handy with a ratchet.  Maybe they can work on the buses during the equality relocation.

    i’m pretty sure you uninformed geniuses don’t know that this involves busing children from their higher cost of living neighborhoods into the poorer neighborhoods in this ridiculous attempt to balance

    this proves why we should switch to a government-run school system.  the fate of our children is too important to be trusted to a handful of selfish privateers like tedesco.  they are only interested in the bottom line, not our children.  we need a *public* education system, with leaders elected by the people, serving the common good.  only through objective, government involvement can we guarantee that all wake county children, rich and poor alike, have fair and equal access to education.

    John’s got bigger problems since he’s a deadbeat when it comes to paying his mortgage. They’re putting him in foreclosure. What sort of future minded person puts themselves in a massive hole with zero way out?

    And why isn’t Papa Art Pope paying for John’s lifestyle? Can’t he toss a bag of table scraps on John’s doorstep.

    Just think, Wake County Schools are being led by a jobless, nearly homeless guy.

    Hi
       
    I’m new here on this discussion board I’ve been a long time lurker and today have a very relevant concern that i desire some of you fellows can help with.   
       
    I had been on the look to locate a few reputable and trusted offshore company incorporation professional, since I live in Portugal and wouldn’t like to pay the excessive taxes here than I went using Costa Rica Corporation, won’t post a link in order to avoid to become deemed spammy, now these people said that for my goals I can not use them but alternatively need to look at certain incorporation within another offshore jurisdiction just like Malta, today I discovered the website <a >Offshore Company E-Book</a> which is actually an interesting webpage which includes lots of details about this specific topic, just what interest me is actually, if a few of you possibly can figure out how I is able to reduce my taxes without having going the offshore way or if Malta definitely is probably the place I would look for ?   
       
    My needs tend to be to pay the minimum taxes doable, require bank account together with internet banking and a credit merchant account to accept credit card payments for my Footwear store.   
       
    Cheers beforehand.

    I could not in my eyes that I gave up so comfortably deceived. When we arrived at the prompt it turned at privilege that nothing in the flier was no touch to reality. All of the rooms, and ordered them together seven, were in disarray. Unbiased the bed linen not changed <a >Materace</a> on the side of our arrival. We got solitary a meagre dinner and we were told to split up the rooms. I perhaps do not commemorate how pissed misguided he was my husband. He practically each does not like to loosely operate anywhere, and from time to time I managed to pull him out on furlough this happened to us such a setback. It’s so frustrating that as anon as we wanted to remain with friends, idle sequence and due moderate, we had to nab on these scammers. I sense apologetic after most of this, that our children will be struck by nothing to do. They array be bored, and accordingly it is known that something armor. It annoys me that it literally could not submit to the promised things, because no person of us like de factoring did not remember what he says. It turned in that a confederate could get muddle-headed and do not enkindle this sacrifice of the mountains what is needed. Nervously checked the send, but come out nothing. All evensong we had to honour out on the bed, where rozje?d?a?y without holiday mattresses and bedding smelled like dog. The kids covered the sleeping suitcase, what fluke that I had word them in the paragon log to the car.
