Whose European program are you citing? German healthcare insurance costs 14.9% of gross salary. The employer picks up 8%. On $60k, that means the worker pays $400 per month. I've never once paid as much as $400/mo. under my employer sponsored health insurance and I've had exceptional coverage.posted @ Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 13:25

[quote][b]Chief Weems[/b] -
That is not correct. According to state law, court house security is the responsibility and jurisdiction of the Sheriff. The Sheriff is required to author and implement a security plan and file it with the chief judge of the Superior Court for review. The County Commissioners only part of the process is paying the bill.
See O.C.G.A. 15-16-10 (a)(10)
A county may not create a county police agency unless there is a public referendum to do so. Such a vote can only be held every four years.
See 36-8-1 O.C.G.A.
Even if their were such a vote in a county to create a PD, the courthouse security plan an implementation would still be vested in the Sheriff. Private security can only be utilized if the Sheriff and Chief Judge agree to do so. Again, the Commissioners have no say so in the matter per the state law.
This is what it boils down to from my strictly outside-looking-in perspective: The commissioner in question is completely freaked out because he was doing something he shouldn't have inside that place. He was unaware that the sheriff had this mandate by law. Now, there is concern on his part about who will find out what. This is the picture painted by this p***ing match.posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 07:31

The only person truly exonerated by the release of these 100 documents (let's not yet speak of the thousands not released) is Susan Rice.

@Mr Lightborn: There are no true grassroots movements any more.
[quote]But the Occupy Wall Street admission that there was no right to turn a park into a tent city calls into question the true significance of the movement. Instead of calling it Occupy Wall Street, a more accurate term would be Occupy AstroTurf. The political term "AstroTurfing" refers to phony movements that appear to arise from the grass roots. Tobacco companies created the front group National Smokers Alliance to lobby on their behalf. MoveOn.org used automated emails to create the impression that a Michael Moore agitprop film was popular. China employs a huge army of "50 cent" bloggers who get paid for each Beijing-defending post.
Similarly, the Occupy Wall Street idea was launched by a magazine called Adbusters, based in Canada, which over the summer created a hashtag on Twitter called #OccupyWallStreet. This encouraged people to converge on Wall Street for a "leaderless resistance movement." A small group found its way to the half-acre Zuccotti Park, in a largely residential part of the financial district, when barricades blocked them from their top targets of the New York Stock Exchange and J.P. Morgan Chase Plaza. Their own blogs posts at the time expressed surprise that they were allowed to camp out.[/quote]posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 03:19

Your initial premise is wrong and will continue to be so. I will not engage you on a new and even more pointless venture when you already know that you are wrong and you're looking for wiggle room.
