Kathleen Parker has slipped into the realm of the useless. For the most part she hasn't written a sensible column in two years and this is yet another example. Along with her brethen she wants to tell is what to think and revisionist history is often at play. As pointed out by kmsimpson the whole thing was overblown. For the most part, the media sits back and watches the current president totally disregard the Constitution and they support it. The constitution helped to correct the Nixon mistakes will it work now.
It appears you omitted tha fact that 50+ % (30M) is Federal stimulus $$$$$ that the US taxpayer would have to borrow to fund this project. Not sure why we think that is ok.....hopefully you have no children because they will be paying off the greed of this generation for a long time.
I am glad others quickly focused on the fact that "federal stimulus" money is indeed taxpayer money. With the deficit and the debt at out of control levels why does anyone think the US taxpayer (including those of us in Gwinnett who pay taxes) should bet on what is being described as a private sector project. It doesn't matter if it was two sentences-three sentences or a whole paragraph taken out of context, it it is such a great project finance it with NO Taxpayer funds.
As for the forever tainted BOC I hope here hasn't been any funny business on this - they have already lost all credibility and it would take a long time to get it back. Danny and the team needs to look very closely.......
Shirley betrayed the public trust and the fact that some in Duluth (Nancy Harris) are supporting her is amazing. She STOLE from us and in addition to her jail time should lose ALL public pension money coming to her. There is no rational reason for supporting anyone who steals from the public. Kudos to Danny Porter - he smelled a rat and he caught one.
