Note: I am so glad I understand politics and business as it relates to boards and etc. I find it so funny at times when some folks have a problem with some things that takes place because of personal reasons.
I have some issues with some folks that sits on boards in Edgecombe County especially the school board. However I will not allow my personal issues with them about things as it relates to all children in Edgecombe County cloud my what is justifiable and what is not. I will not bash them for doing things that makes sense.
Board retreats and etc. are figured into the budget and required by most boards especially the school boards. So just because there are some areas that need to be improved, the board still must should attend retreats and etc. so they can get some knowledge of what they can bring back to share within their systems.
I have no problem with monies being spent for the boards to go and learn things that can help Edgecombe County. However I have a problem when the members go to the training but don’t actually attend the sessions and/or do not come back and put into use what they have learned.
It is not the board members fault that the state cut their budget so therefore they have to layoff employees.
I say let’s not get caught up into dollars and sense when there is really no validity to trying to justify boards attending retreats and etc. vs. the need for layoffs which is totally beyond the board’s control. Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator

The Bush economic policies first led to a surge in food stamp applicants in the summer of 2008. The Washington Post reported on November 26, 2008, “Fueled by rising unemployment and food prices, the number of Americans on food stamps is poised to exceed 30 million for the first time this month, surpassing the historic high set in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina.” (Read more)
Note: Well Beck I am not on Food Stamps never and have been. I have been working since I was 5 years old.
But this article validates some of the mess that President Obama inherited. It is clearly stated, The Washington Post reported on November 26, 2008, “Fueled by rising unemployment and food prices, so why in the hell does President Obama haters want to blame him for the unemployment rates?
