Re: “If Wake County Doesn’t Have Extra Money for Schools, Should It Spend Millions to Turn a Failed Golf Course into a Park?

Comment: "Parks and Schools are not mutually exclusive."

Actually, they ARE mutually exclusive if they are the only choices and you don't have enough money to pay for both of them. In this case, you don't have enough money to pay for even one of them! Normally, if you don't have money, you don't have money, period. I can see terminating existing spending or going into debt and borrowing to cover an emergent unforseeable situation, but you don't start a dialog about spending money you don't have.

"Then you'll have a school located next to a beautiful park. You have all sorts of opportunities."

Who exactly, will have all sorts of opportunities? Aside from not being able to envision how students might practicably be let loose safely in a very large public park during school hours, the hours prior and after concern me more. An adjacent park will be a natural place for unsupervised school kids as well as child predators to loiter, the latter not easily identifiable as such.

Re: “Those Kids HB 2 Is Supposed to Protect? They Don’t Want Your Protection.

Dumite, you seem pretty worked up about something, but I am really not seeing what could be upsetting you. Maybe I think differently--I grew up in different countries, and long ago too, when things were quite different.

You keep insisting that there was something (what?) to be done by school officials (which ones?) using their wisdom (how?) in such large quantities that even the smartest teenagers can't have (Mayday! SOS!?) about something (what?) that was going on.

That's a lot to answer after having already said so much, but it would help me understand.
