Has anyone considered the number of unemployed that have stopped looking and their benefits have expired? Do not think so. as for EBT cards well why work when you can make more by staying at home and have some else pay for your needs.

Mack711 9 months, 4 weeks ago on School board approves tax hike

Thought that the job of the schools was to educate, not have the kids raise money. My daughter brought a fund raiser home with a letter instructing the parent to take it to work and sell the items. It got so crazy at work that the company wrote a letter that said not to bring these things to work. Sent the letter in with the sales information and was told that she should go door to door. Imagine that every kid in the neighborhood was coming by trying to sell the same stuff.

We have always avoided this intersection for years due to the high volume of traffic in the area. If this is anything like the one in Dekalb it will be nightmare. For those going south on 85 to go to Pleasent Hill get ready for long delays due to the lane changes. Best thing to do is to avoid this area as it is to overdeveloped and Jimmy Carter Blvd. will be the next mess to deal with. Think it is bad now just wait.

Mack711 10 months, 2 weeks ago on THOMAS: The coming Obamacare disaster

Why do you think that so many come from other countries come here for medical care rather than stay in their country? The medical services here are far superior to any other country on this planet, but that is about to change when obama care starts. Those who think obama care will help them will find out when they must pay more for medical care and get less. When they get fined about $3K for not having insurance when they can not afford the premiums for insurance then you will hear the people cry foul but by that time it will be to late. It is, as some have said that, the low infromation voter is the one who will find out that he has been snookered. To late then.

Mack711 10 months, 2 weeks ago on Woman arrested at Parkview graduation after fighting with cops

Ms. White's behavior is typical of what we are seeing on some of the so called reality shows on TV. The one that comes to mind is Hardcore Pawn. We are seeing a culture that says the rules do not apply to me and will get what they want and when they want no matter what. She seems to think that she is above the rules of society as demonstrated by her arrest records as pointed out by another poster. We as a society can not survive with this type of behavior and should not have to tolerate this behavior. It is time for her do do Hard time if found guilty.

If this is the case then why is she still on the street? If she is a habitual offender then she should be put away for a long time. The courts probably will not do anything to her again. Maye fine her, give her probation then she can tell everyone that she beat the system again. Seems that she thinks she is privliged person. Maybe one day she will pay.

Mack711 10 months, 3 weeks ago on Gwinnett unemployment lowest since 2008

Did they count the actual number of residents that have stopped looking for work and their benefits have run out? probably not. Remember that you can make the numbers say anything you want them to say. How many took an early retirement to avoid being a statistic. Like Haughton said when the number of people that are recieving entitlements drops then along with the unemployment rate then we have cause to celebrate. We as a workforce can not afford to pay for those that do not much longer. Something has got to give. Also you must ask how many took lower paying jobs or are working 2 jobs just to generate income to prevent a finicial disaster.

Mack711 11 months ago on Group wants atheist books alongside Bibles In Ga. state parks

Here is a simple answer to this whole situation. Should you check into another room and find a Bible, do not open it and start reading it leave it alone. No one is requring you to read anything you do not like, but there are many who want to. So because it offends you it may not offend others. By requiring the removal you are infringing on others and inposing your will on others.

Mack711 11 months, 1 week ago on CEPEDA: A very lethal plaything -- real guns that look like toys

In a way Ms. Cepeda is pushing for gun control in her own way. She has the opinion that if it can be stopped at a young age then that will carry on into adult hood. Take Chicago, think that is where she is from, they have no firearm stores and no concelled weapons permits. Yet they have the highest crime rate for weapons usage in the entire country. Why? Because the criminals and gangs are the only ones who have the weapons. As you know a criminal does not care about the laws that you and I do. Armed Gangs are a lot of the problem for the law abiding citizen. A lot of the armed gang members are under the age of 21 so what does that tell you, they do not care about the laws.
