Click the header. Please? (I found it very interesting.) ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide is that considered a hostage situation? ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ A few days ago, I came across something that might explain this picture: "THE BUDGET SHOULD BE BALANCED, THE TREASURY SHOULD BE REFILLED, PUBLIC DEBT SHOULD BE REDUCED, THE ARROGANCE OF OFFICIALDOM SHOULD BE TEMPERED AND CONTROLLED, AND THE ASSISTANCE TO FOREIGN LANDS SHOULD BE CURTAILED LEST ROME BECOME BANKRUPT. PEOPLE MUST AGAIN LEARN TO WORK, INSTEAD OF LIVING ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE". CICERO, 55 BC How did Cicero know this might happen? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- While I'm at it, here's a look into the poor level of our schools when it comes to teaching English. "Among the proposals are a quarter-cent increase in the gross receipts tax and a 50-cents-a-package increase in cigarette the tax (sic). Another measure will reinstate a portion of the gross receipts tax on food." Now, that could have been done in several locations while preparing for print media. But nobody caught it. Here's something else: "Lawmakers Consider Sales Tax Increase" was the headline. The thing is that New Mexico does NOT have a sales tax. Never has had a sales tax. But I find this kind of thing in common usage here. Does it indicate the schools are not doing their job in teaching our State economics to the kids? You betcha dupa it does. Not a big deal? Open to argument. But it is symptomatic of the erosion and destruction of knowledge going on in our schools. Just sayin'.
