[quote][b]shawn706[/b] - Closing to many loopholes while keeping the ridiculously high tax rate will just cause companies such as Apple to move the entire business overseas. Who can blame anyone for trying to keep as much of their hard earned money as they can.
what a crock of crap ... these are just other repubatard " talking points " just like the BS about how higher taxes are job killing ...
what we should do is close ALL loopholes and raise the import tax to the same level as the export ... AND set the corporate/ investment tax rates at the same level for working class people ... equal rights , so why not equal tax rates ...
and as for apple and others moving overseas let them and then do something patriotic for your country and buy american ... americans are apple's best customers if we stop buying thier crap who else would ???posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 09:51

the christain religion not only HAS been the largest terrorist group on the planet ... being responsible for more deaths in the name of thier supposed god than ALL others religions combined ... they STILL pursue the exact same agenda today ...
and in NO way am i saying that the muslim radicals are any better just that why should we allow ANY religion to promote thier beliefs on government ( aka ) taxpayer property ... that is what they build those million dollar temples for right ??? that way IF i wish to see thier dog and pony show i can just go there ...posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 10:31

okay ... just for the morons which in this case covers MOST people in this state ... remember that the ten commandments were removed from all government buildings ??? why ??? because the government can not show a preference of one religion over another ... you backwoods nuts really should try some book learning that comes from some place other than your fairy tale the bible ...
the bibles need to go and keep ALL religious text out of government buildings ... and as for the crap about the fact that the state didn't pay for them is a none issue ...posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 08:00

Witch Hunt? Four Americans, one a diplomat died and the Administration lied? Dosen't this concern you? One of the whistle blowers are career foreign service officers, one of them is a stanch Democrat and voted for the the President. Now we know the IRS was used as a political tool to target conservative groups. There is also new information that Chevrolet Dealers who were closed when the Government took over GM were operated by owners identified as Republicans. Many Democrats also favor an investogaton, the most notable is Difi. We have not seen such a budding scandal of government abuse since Richard Nixon. I favor an investigation because an investigation will prove the facts.
where was all this when the repubatards were in office letting americans get killed ??? and how about the TRILLIONS in debt the the repubatard party ran up and now wants to act like Obama did it ...

so we should act in the same manner that christains do ??? christain way of life = kill or destroy the way of life for anyone that disagrees with them or will not convert to thier beliefs ...
after all the people the christains have killed in the name of some fairytale god that doesn't exist ...
the fact that anyone would still believe ANYTHING said by a christain that person would have to be a bigger fool than the christain telling the lies ... you can't hate my post all you want BUT everything i have posted is completely true ...

a few simple points here ... first these would be the same nuts crying about abortions being murder but it is okay to kill a LIVING child ... second and maybe even more important science by its very nature proves that there is no god just man's caveman mentality that refuses to accept such ... just as there is no santa , easter bunny , great pumpkin , fairies or ANY OTHER fictitious characters ...

You are correct, it is supposed to be changed. The problem is that, in many cases it has been ignored. If we want to do something, as a nation, that is not enumerated in the Constitution, we must amend the document, not ignore it, or, twist it.
you just need to except the fact that not every law passed will be to your liking ... as for the process by which those laws are past i blame the rich and thier lobbying of " buying " our government for thier own gain ... you want to fix the process get the rich lobbying cesspool out of the government ... judge those that are guilty and publicly execute them as an example to ALL that would follow in thier footsteps ...
we need to fix this problem now while we MAY still have the ability to do so ...posted @ Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 11:04

But, our Constitution was written to LIMIT what the government does. That fact has been ignored, by the Federal Government, for the past 100 years or so.
okay farmer just because you do make sense ... sometimes ... but NOT this time ...
the constitution was written with the intent that it would change based on the changes " needs " in the world we live in ...by your statement we should also go back to giving convicts a horse , 20 dollar gold piece and a 3030 when released from prison ... or some other out of date practices ...
gay marriage is another ...the civil rights issues ... women's rights ... all these thing were made possible through CHANGES made in the constitution as our forefathers intended ...
maybe you should read and TRY to understand the constitution as a whole not just some short excerpt ...posted @ Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 10:11

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
