In Jesuit parlance, "The ends justify the means". Officials at UNC evidently bought into this concept. For UNC to restore its integrity, they must:
As the handling of the much more egregious Penn St.scandal, UNC must be held to a significantly higher standard to once again gain the trust of NC taxpayers. Enough is enough.
In full disclosure:
GO VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES!!!!!
@teufelhunden, Good Comment
I recall in the 2000 election, GPA's and transcripts from both Bush and Gore were released to the public from both Yale and Harvard Business School (for Bush). Why is it that Obama refuses to release any of his academic records at Columbia? Why not release the actual birth records in Hawaii (I'm still not convinced he was born there)? Now come on folks, documents from both Dems and Republicans are not released. This is just another example of moving the focus away from the real and very important issues America faces.
BTW, McCain only released 2-years of tax returns and nobody squawked. Is it because Romney is successful? You bet.
Your argument that voter fraud is low falls to pieces. Please note the following reasons:
Thank you for your short sighted liberal editorial Pilot.
@ Bentpan. Thanks for the response but you didn't mention the most staggering number.
We have approximately 23 million people who are either classified as unemployed, under-employed or discouraged workers (people who have given up looking for a job). If Dusty wants to have a real discussion about the success of Maobama, we should start at that number, instead we're playing "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain". The only way Obama can get reelected is by redirecting our focus away from his dismal performance.
The continued call for additional funding of public education continues to be a sore point for me. I believe that most of education expenditures are due to mismanagement, waste and continued "non-market" wages and pension costs.
The gains in test scores were not a "nice to have" but a "have to have" and that's why the goals were accomplished. Primary and secondary education will have to innovate to educate our students in a more economic and value added way.
Please see the link below about how VA Tech has found a way to reduce costs and increase performance of their students in ten lower level mathematics classes. I believe this is the future in education and many agree. The program at Tech was the brainchild of a $2 million research grant from the NSF. Money well spent in this case.
Let's not focus on budget but rather ways that we can be more efficient.
If Mitt just explained that his plan was to open the U.S. economy to open market solutions, that would be enough of a plan for me. Nonetheless, he does have a plan as the above poster has provided. It's just a matter of liberals and the elite media refusing to address reality.
You only need read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged to see what has transpired here in our country. It's almost "spooky" in the way she described a socialist economy and its eventual collapse.
I do not ascribe to all of Rand's philosophy including her staunch defense of atheism. Nonetheless, she was ahead of her time.
In addition to the above, please see link below on Michigan's DONR management of the goose population. The solution is a managed hunting season for geese in NC to reduce the population.
Please read the link below. The article explains the parasitic, bacterial and fungal issues connected with goose feces. Goose feces are a public health risk and goose feces in abundance is even a greater public health risk. The CG population has exploded and we need a solution. I might suggest what many Chicago area suburbs have done in recent years with an over-population of deer, hire professional hunters to reduce the population. I don't believe we need professional hunters here for the geese as we have great sportsmen in the area who could easily take care of the problem.
Are you daft?"
Again, we have people proposing the TAKING of private property. Why should the owner donate and take a tax write off?? The write-off is only worth the marginal tax rate that the individual pays. for instance, if the owner has a MTR of 30%, the the charitable the true economic value is only worth 70% of the market value of the property, independently appraised for IRS purposes which will probably be below the actual asking price..
Additionally, I don't give a flying frick what the local realtors say the property is worth, it's the owner's personal choice to hold the property until he gets his price which may never come. If the property is so darn important to the city, purchase the property at the asking price. Otherwise, butt out!
Let me get this straight... vaccuous?

Compared to that clown sitting in the White House, Romney is Mensa and Maobama is EMH
