You can purchase any type high capicity firearm or magazine you want, if you have the money to do so. All you have to do is find the right person, that is what the criminals are doing. So all the firarms laws that you pass will not affect the criminal element. Basically you are dis arming the law abiding citizen. When will the legal citizens realize this? probably when some one breaks into their home with one of these illegal weapons. We have gangs in Gwinnett ( lots of them under 21 carring weapons) that want these laws passed so that they can reak havoic upon the law abiding citizen. Passing these laws only protects the criminals, not the law abiding citizen.
They were out there today and everyone was flashing their lights at them. The radio was busing with their location. Just slow down and they will not bother you.
The seniors are not in the same house, they are 3 seperate houses. They all total do not generate enough to fill one can. They saved money by combining the 3 houses into one can but under the current plan they must pay for one can that is not totally full in a month. by the way one has moved out of Gwinnett and one more has his house for sale. Not saying this is the reason but has something to do with it. They say that taxes here in Gwinnett are higher than other places.
Too much government in our lives. Who is to say what is a loud color. Why should this group have the power to say what color our business can be. If it offends you then pass by it and do not look. What is one persons trash is anothers treasure.
Way to go Ryan this is what we need. Wish other former Major leaguers would do the same. There are probably more that do this but we do not hear about things like this that often. Mostly criminal news.
The Fair Tax idea came from Rep; John Linder of the 7th Congressional District of Georgia, he is a Republican and Neal Boortz with Linder wrote the book. I like the idea of the fair tax but it must be implimented on the Federal level first. My question is what affect will this have on a lot of our seniors that are on fixed income. When we do away with the income tax the funds for running the State must come from some where and the Seniors will be hit hardest. Can some one say how this will affect the seniors.
If you are going to blame the BOC then have a look at the BOC that approved this plan. Bannister: reisgned to avoid being jailed and charged with a crime. Kennerly who is being charged and will appear in court to answer charges. Lassiter who admitted taking a bribe and was sent to jail. and oh yes Mike B who may be under investigation for expense account charges.Those are the ones who stuck us with this plan along with Connie Wiggins. We need to know exactly how much Connie, often refered to as Connie's Commies, gets for the sale of the items that we recycle. You want transparenticy, start there. The sale of these recycle should be paid to the county in order to offset the cost of the service and reduce our payments to the county. We need to know all about the deals and payments that are being made and who gets the money.
In our neighborhood there are 3 senior citizens homes who used on trash service and split the cost of the service. The service they had was cheaper than what we have now. They did not even fill one container. Under the current plan they pay for the entire container empty or full. One of these familes can not fill the container in a month. Prepaid bags is the way to go. You pay for what you throw away. Fair and simple.
"My gut reaction is that for the Supreme Court to undo what the county had done ... would've cost millions of dollars and would've spawned more lawsuits," he added
This is the real reason for this ruling. We are stuck with this social plan until it comes up for renewal in a few years. If you do not want this plan then vote in some one who says that they will stop this plan and vote the ones who want it out. There are pros and cons to this plan, but most want to use the free enterprise and freedom of choice to do business with whom we wish. Most want less government in our lives there by reducing our tax burden. All that had to be done was to say you must have trash service, get your own just like car insurance. We will see how government operates when Obama care goes into full affect. Same principal but on a smaller scale.
You may not pay additonal sales taxes but rest assured that some of our tax money will be used some where. The CID may get some of the funding from the reatilers who pass this along to the customers who purchase items from them. There by raising the cost of an item the reataile can not afford to lose money. Any way you look at it this may cost the taxpayer in the long run. Believe in giving tax breaks to attract business to a certain area but not in this case for Gwinnett Place Mall.
