There is no need for me to head to the store, I've still got my unused bread and milk from the snowstorm last winter!
There's nothing "altruistic" about this "assumption". It's a simple response in a capitalistic economy.
You really have to look no further than your neighborhood to see examples of this "assumption" that you mock. Do you shop at any of the following places? Home Depot, Lowe's, Kroger, Publix, Walmart, Target?? These companies ( substitute "evil corporations" if it makes you more comfortable) compete by price. They don't lower prices to be altruistic, they lower prices to gain a competitive advantage and earn more business.
With all due respect DavidBrown, the 4th District does not belong to Congressman Johnson, it belongs to the people of the 4th District. It is not "Congressman Johnson's district".
And you'll want to make sure you get to the polls on Tuesday. I was not estatic when redistricting moved me out of the 7th District and into the 4th District. I have already voted and I did not vote for Congressman Johnson.
It's a truly sad story for all parties and I'm not sure anything can be done to fill the hole in the Durden family's and friend's lives. I think this young lady will be living with a very heavy burden for her life. I think one way to try to create some good from this situation is to have her go to high school and driver's education classes and tell the young teen-aged drivers about the horrible accident she caused. While these actions won't undo this accident and the pain it has caused, hopefully these actions might prevent future accidents and future pain.
I feel for them. That's a crappy problem to have. I read a list of suspected causes (higher temperatures, over-fishing, oil dispersants, drought), but it doesn't seem like they know what's really the reason behind the drop-off in oysters. Before they start making decisions that will negatively impact our lives, how about they precisely identify the cause of their problem.
Does anyone know who has to pay for replacing the patrol car? Is a claim filed against the county's insurance policy (which pushes the costs to the taxpayers) or Mr. Matt's policy? It doesn't feel right that the taxpayers should have to pay to replace a patrol car destroyed by Mr. Matt's illegal and poor choices. I don't know the answer and was curious if any of you do know.
"Agree Mack, Wilbanks and his cronies have contributed more to the downfall of public schools than anyone. Oh, yeah the graduating students can take a test but once you past the test on a job you then have to perform.
After 24 years of dealing with Gwinnett Co Schools I can attest that even currently your graduates can not spell. Thanks to phonics."
You might want to edit your post and check your spelling.
Mr. Vernon: "What was that ruckus?"
Andrew Clark: "Uh, what ruckus?"
Mr. Vernon: "I was just in my office and I heard a ruckus."
Brian Johnson: "Could you describe the ruckus, sir?"
This guy is a crook. End of discussion about him.
This story is another great example of government ineptness. Why isn't the Teacher's Retirement System doing the same thing the private pension plans (for payout annuities and pension plans) have been doing for years and checking the Social Security Death Master File to see who has died???? Private companies are smart enough to go to this source to find out who has died and thus no longer gets their pension checks. Why doesn't the Teacher's Retirement System do the same thing???
(Maybe the answer is they would do it, but they don't have time because they're stuck waiting in long lines at the government-run DDS)
...for the same reason that UGA admitted him
