This Is What Happens When Chicago Privatizes School Janitorial Services

Remember, private business is there to make a profit at virtually any way they can. Government doesn’t need to make a profit but needs to keep it’s taxes at reasonable levels Add in the questionable bidding process most governing bodies use, taking the lowest bid is just insane.

Racism exists? OF COURSE! You can't read "Social Justice" droppings for a minute without being splattered by racism! White people are racists, black are racists -- EVERYONE IS RACISTS! Now move on. The racial narrative has not advanced society one iota in some 50 years. When something doesn't work, STOP USING IT.

Or admit that it has been used as a panacea, rather than a symptom.  Too many have thought that recognizing it was enough and would resolve itself.  Well that is as wrong an answer as your solution to ignore it and expect it to wither.  Human nature requires an aggressive stance to cure social ills.  Current work standards were not handed out as a reward from society for working hard.  it was paid for by Blood.  The minimal rights to vote an access to courts and education that non whites currently enjoy were not given over by a grateful nation for past services,  it was paid for with blood.  NO advancement for the majority of people in any society in the written/known history of Humanity was ever given without blood.

Yes I’m posting this response.

Hey! Wasn’t crushing austerity in southern Europe supposed to solve the massive government debt problem? Wrong! It’s actually getting worse. All Austerity did was to bail out the banks that caused the problem in the first place.

Conservative policies are FAILURES.

It’s the same as telling a starving person to eat less.

Exotic:
1. of foreign origin or character; not native; introduced from abroad, but not fully naturalized or acclimatized:
2. of or…

Not disagreeing but cherry picking your definition isn’t helpful. From Merriam-Webster the 3rd entry is ” strikingly, excitingly, or mysteriously different or unusual”

Good point. And when applied to a naturalized person it tends to reinforce the second implication of the comment. A way of saying, “I don’t get out much.”

Yes. Personally, I’ll just call certain plants exotic.
