Enough, but what does that have to do with anything?
If you are a teacher and not paying SS taxes, then you are a tax cheat, plain and simple.
Do you pay double taxes for your job when you can only receive any benefit from one? Again, Galt, you're way too old and out of the loop.

WalMart announces that they will build an additional 53 Neighborhood Markets in Virginia.
In other news the existing Burger King in front of the old Belo's store will be torn down to increase the parking lot size for the Market. The old Rally's, that has been closed for 5 years will be torn down also but a new, bigger Burger King will replace it. This following McDonald's tearing down and rebuilding their outdated store across the street. Good things happening because of WalMart.
The oppressed middle class, with no more money left after taxes finds relief and low prices at Walmart!

Thank's God for Walmart!

PS: Walmart can ONLY sell low thanks to their NON-UNION stand! Looks like NON-UNION is the way to go!

The penalty for practicing engineering in Wisconsin without a license, or representing oneself as an engineer without a license, is a fine of up to $500 and imprisonment for up to three months.
The fkn guy wasn't practicing, he worked for the engineering department in a supervisory role, hardhat, truck, shovel, motorola radio, state credit card. He wasn't signing plans you stupid fk.

Most of the state of PA mining engineers of 40 years ago weren't degreed engineers either but inherited the jobs from the dads, uncles etc.

Now go play with your trollmates.

John Stossel's 'Stupid in America'
By JOHN STOSSEL
Jan. 13, 2006
"Stupid in America" is a nasty title for a program about public education, but some nasty things are going on in America's public schools and it's about time we face up to it.
Kids at New York's Abraham Lincoln High School told me their teachers are so dull students fall asleep in class. One student said, "You see kids all the time walking in the school smoking weed, you know. It's a normal thing here."
We tried to bring "20/20" cameras into New York City schools to see for ourselves and show you what's going on in the schools, but officials wouldn't allow it <<---<<<

Therefore, codifying the rights and responsibilities of government and its citizens into a Constitution bothers the hell out of them.

So... the founders of the original US Constitution were liberals?!?!?!

wow. Now THIS is a new one!

Interesting...

I remember this too.

"The next time some teachers union twit tells you their protests are about the “children” be sure you remember this clip and the words of the NEA union boss (video!):

"Don’t forget the infamous quote from Albert Shanker, past president of the American Federation of Teachers “When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children.”

The IRS declined comment for this story.

A yearlong audit by the agency's inspector general found that IRS agents had improperly targeted conservative political groups for additional and sometimes onerous scrutiny when those groups applied for tax-exempt status.

Safe environments would be nice but student violence has become an epidemic because liberals want to "leave them alone".
No, liberals want the government to 'leave the kids alone'. Teachers have always been the primary disciplinarians in the traditional classroom. When the state intervenes by sending in the police or hires private armed guards to patrol the school corridors it undermines the authority of teachers for maintaining an orderly environment where learning can take place . In that context, young people are smart enough to know who they need to obey and who they can safely afford to ignore. It's the person with the big gun not the person with the book who gets the respect now.

Fox News?
Bwahahahaha
Holly Paz, who until recently was a top deputy in the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, told congressional investigators she reviewed 20 to 30 applications. Some requests languished for more than a year without action.
The account undercuts the narrative that senior officials only learned of the practice after it had already started in the Cincinnati office.
