Why are the schools funded unequally to begin with?

This is wrong!

This inequal funding is all about where millage requests get approved by the taxpayers and where they don't....

Of course towns and cities with a lot of wealthy retirees, nursing homes, and religious terrorist training schools are more likely to reject millage requests and areas of deep poverty where people cannot substain a decent standard of living let alone pay more taxes.

No mention in the article about wealthy corporate folks who pay no property or school taxes thanks to Corporate Welfare programs stared by John Engler and continues by his comrade Jennifer Graholm.

So where are all the jobs these tax free businesses created?

(Besides the jobs that went to undocumented immigrants because the INS only fines employers who hire them $50.)

When is the INS going to raid the apple orchards and blueberry farms? When are they going to force the food processers to hire Americans again?(And pay a living wage?)

Time to take action!

Those who benefit the most from the Republic best start paying their FAIR SHARE for its defense, the maintenance of the infrastructure....and the GENERAL WELFARE of its citizens!(The wealthy few of course!)

See the Preamble of the USA what it says carefully!

Time to make the richest pay more! Time to close the loopholes the rich hire lawyers to find and the average middle class Joe and Jane don't get..

(Pretty nice....if you make enough money to report on form 1040 instead of form 1040EZ like us peons do!!!)

To find more school funding is a simple thing...

Closing loopholes for the rich and the religious!(Failure to do so will result in the emergence of Communism by election in America!)

The alternative is revolution and civil wars. Because authoritarians answer crime waves started by poverty with more police and bigger prisons!

And more loss of liberty!:-(

They Cut our income to Equalize school payments? What a Bunch of Idiots. This kind of thing should wait until after the State gets back on its feet. More of the Democratic Tax and Spend Mentality! Time for them to GO!!!
