Very disappointing comments from Mr. Chronister.
I don't begrudge the real estate business he is in.
His critics have torn into him over the years for that.
But it seems like the real estate industry wants to prop up the "public school industry" with its outrageous benefits and salaries.
They want to get rid of property taxes and replace them with sales taxes without addressing the outrageous salaries and benefits that exist in our public schools.
Shell gaming the public with a new tax for an old tax to get more money out of people's pockets isn't the answer.
Since the public schools waste money on big salaries and benefits perhaps it is time for school choice (demonized as "vouchers").
I would prefer my tax dollars go to schools that have lower salaries and don't build Taj Mahal facilities.
Wouldn't you????????
Yea, those BIG teacher salaries. It only takes about 20 to 25 years to get that BIG Salary. And of course, all along the way there is nothing that is expected of them, they just sit there. And those BIG houses teachers live in, makes me what to do that.

Vouchers are nothing more than transferring middle class tax monies so the rich can send their lovely kids to private schools and keep that family wealth, in the family, the rich getting richer courtesy of the taxpayer.
