Fewer students being enrolled in public schools means less taxpayer funding for those schools, many would shut down and consolidate with a mass withdrawal and that's the point. If all children were to be permanently withdrawn from public schools, then those taxes would stop being collected altogether.
Attendance matters for funding. Number of lunches served is a basis for funding. Smaller class sizes would result in consolidating and eliminating courses and downsizing faculty. Etc etc. Theoretically a 30 or 40% reduction of students could kill a school. (OK, I made that number up). Eventually, my tax contribution would go down because the budget would shrink. Well, again, in theory.
Actually, in many locales it means that they'll raise property taxes to make up for the Federal per-student funding they lose. If you have separate School Taxes, those will go up, as well.
Still worth the cost.

His feet were on the wall and the tarp when he made the catch, making it an OUT. After his momentum led him into the stands, off the wall and the tarp, the ball is dead and the runner advances one base. Not all that complicated.

Ronald Reagan would disagree.

Wow, Blaze editorial staff. Because you piggybacked off the NY Daily News for the article, you didn’t do any actual journalism. That’s why you use a stock photo of a white guy instead of the actual photo of the young black man – the red flag was, “whose father is a police officer in Jamaica”. Was this an attempt to make it appear as if this individual issue of police misconduct was perpetrated on a Caucasian? Does The Blaze do any actual reporting themselves or have your just turned into a conservative Huffington Post, an aggregate news site? If compared side by side, I don’t even know if there’s an original word in The Blaze’s version. Looks like you just copy/pasted different parts of the News’ real journalism to create the illusion of an original piece of work.
I guess it would never occur to a racist like you that the blaze is using a stock photo, perhaps because it doesn't have the rights and permissions to use a photo of Oliver Wiggins.
You're a whiner without a clue.
This story is a trick. If we had known that the perp was black, then we wouldn't have been so sympathetic to his claim of police abuse.
By showing a white man in the picture, we're lead to believe that the police may have done something wrong.
Jamica is a town in NY
Ianimibus Did you know about Jamaica neighborhood in NY. Maybe you assumed info.too
If you read the article at the NY Daily News, you would see that it was not "copy/pasted" from the DN. Actually looks closer to an article run in The Grio, an online news source. Although Wiggins is a young black man, it doesn't change the story, nor the wrong that was committed by the officers involved.

This article, in comparing reactions to Sharpton and Duke’s respective Presidential runs, completely ignores the different media environment. Instant media – Twitter, Facebook, camera phones, YouTube – changes everything. A David Duke running today would get the same vitriol as Trump; Sharpton would be even more of a gadfly candidate if he ran again – all this is because of the instantaneous nature of the media today.

Given that nothing in the recent SCOTUS decision overturned Reynolds v. United States, the lower courts can’t grant him the additional marriage license.
How so? Reynolds v. U.S. was a case regarding religious observation/practice. Since SCOTUS has declared that marriage is a constitutional right whose to say he can't?

Yeah, she was there.

How is that censoring free speech? You’re still free to make the speech. The newspaper, with it’s own First Amendment rights, is free to determine the content of their newspaper. Do you not believe the newspaper has the right to editorialize and decide the content of its periodical? What you’re proposing is to censor Freedom of the Press.

And if the newspaper were somehow required to print these stories, would Freedom of the Press be dead too? No one’s Free Speech rights have been infringed, only a newspaper, using it’s own First Amendment rights to editorialize and decide what they want in their newspaper.
If we follow the logical process provided by the legal suits against Christian businesses, it is improper for the Newspaper agency to limit speech or input of any kind even if they do not agree with the input. The Newspaper is specifically a business regardless of whether it is a news source. If you are going to apply the restrictive rules that state Christian business people may not express their religious views in the business setting then you must universally apply this to all businesses regardless of whether you agree or not. If this is not the case then you have supported tyranny, and a complete lack of equality.
The proper thing to do is to recognize that the original decisions are in error, and resort to previous rulings in relation to business rights. In absence of that decision, then the current rule must be applied completely.
I don't, but tattoos though forbidden under the law was not the reason God was driving out the pagans who were in Canaan at the time. God was driving them (not the Children of Israel) out of the land because of a society that had given itself over to the sinful customs in Leviticus 18. This is not about the laws. This is about God's thoughts on a society given to evil.

I don’t think she’s apologizing for choosing to have the baby. I think she’s apologizing because she preaches abstinence-only education and the concept of waiting-for-marriage, something she is clearly incapable of doing herself. And shame on you for advocating, albeit I assume jokingly, for people to commit suicide. A real Christian would never advocate, even in jest, for someone to commit a sin.

Fact: different movies have different trailers. I’d imagine that after the 2nd or 3rd trailer attached to a horror movie would be a little different than that of a Pixar movie. Should’ve been able to figure even before the movie started.
