  1. Today
  2. I admit I'm a bit confused. Before last week's Special Meeting to vote on the 2024 Budget, I thought I'd seen some source (WETM and/or legislator?) refer to the pay raise being voting on at the regular Legislature Meeting tonight (12/11). I assumed I'd recalled that wrong when they voted last week (12/04) and Moss announced that he signed the Budget. However......the Agenda for tonight (linked HERE) does in fact include a resolution specifically for the Legislative pay. Perhaps @Lawana Morse can clarify if (like the ARP funds) expenditures in the Budget require a separate vote to finalize??? (Although I'm sure it's very improbable to hope that one of the eight will swing their vote from last week.)
  3. Mahomes' little temper tantrum was pretty unbecoming yesterday. And no, Miller was NOT offsides on the very next play. Every slowed down post I see trying to show it was actually proves otherwise.
  4. Yesterday
  5. It was the original broadcast. We weren’t impressed but you guys seemed to enjoy the show.
  6. Maybe I’m a tiny bit from each. Nothing I read screamed completely me.
  7. The cost of the 'Home Alone' grocery trip has nearly doubled in the past year. And we had a spike of higher inflation the year before. When you add household bills, gas, clothes and everything else.....I have no doubt that the total for all the goods/services for a household is up $300/week ($15k/yr). Source There seem to be a few competing price estimates, but many of them relied on "generic" brands at Walmart or Aldi to trim this years price down to around $50 to $60. While that is, in fact, how many consumers are managing to get by these days, the actual comparison is the kid buying name brand items at a local grocery store in his neighborhood. If he'd had purchased the suggested generic alternatives in 1990, it would have been a lot less then.
  8. I saw somewhere that in order to live the same lifestyle you did in 2021, you’d now need $15,000 more dollars a year. At first that seemed crazy, but looking at inflation but also “shrinkflation” that’s happening at the same time I’m inclined to believe it.
  9. I’m not what you’d consider an “easy mark” for pressure tipping LOL. Bartenders, servers, etc., always get a tip. If it’s shitty service, it’ll be a shitty tip ( as someone told me, “So they know you didn’t just forget.” ) but that is extremely rare as I’m pretty easy going. If I see them having a bad night, I’m more understanding and more liable to tip extra, just because. But the tip jars and the tablets prompting you everywhere you go is nuts. We were at a coffee shop out of town one time and the “barista” had a surly attitude, yet didn’t fail to mention the button “if you wanna leave a tip.” Heres a tip princess: Lose the attitude.
  10. I don’t like to put myself into any pre-determined box, but I guess the closest I could come to would be #4. And even then, I don’t know. I just believe in older ways I guess. Do what you say you’re gonna do, be true to your word, do t tolerate BS, look a person in the eye when you talk to them, firm handshake, etc. Novel ideas in this world, I know. Maybe that’s why people frustrate me so much.
  11. Lucas claims he had no part in its making, but I recall reading something that said he actually did but walked away from it at the last minute. My guess is because he knew what a steaming pile of crap it was. I love Star Wars, and I always will. But man, this is bad. Funny enough, I actually have a vague memory of seeing it when I was really little. But I’d have been four, so I don’t know that it was the original broadcast I saw. However it was only shown once. Who knows.
  12. Last week

    Taxes

    The city also spent nearly $30 million in grant money and is trying to get more. You'd think they could budget a little better. My guess is that they need to raise taxes again because of their waste on frivolous projects and their incompetence.
  14. If you’re blocked from Joe’s legislator page, you’re not going to see anything he posts using it. Even on other pages apparently. Legally deemed a violation of your civil rights by the courts, but Joe only cares about freedom for those who agree with him.
  15. That drives me nuts. Especially when it's on my own page and on something I posted.
  16. That's FB completely useless algorithm that arbitrarily decides what is or is not "relevant". I am constantly forced to select "All comments" when checking comments on any page I visit.
  17. i can only see 3 actual posts there....truth must've pissed off more people than i thought over the years
  18. You can find it in response to a post on this page. In a follow up, apparently just doing the job you were elected to do in the first place is enough to justify giving yourself a raise:
  19. I missed where he posted that garbage. I'd love to hear more of what Joe considers "better government".
  20. So … exactly what is Brennans definition of “work” ?! Wouldn’t it be great if us plebes could be paid fairly for actual work … we could if we were allowed to arbitrarily give ourselves raises !
  21. 🙄 What ever helps you sleep at night Joe. But guess what? A lot of us haven’t gotten raises that have kept up with the rate of inflation. As to the argument that it’s “fair for the work we do”, I’ll once again refer to my above, uh, literary reference: Again, I applaud McCarthy, Morse and the others who voted against giving themselves a pay raise.
