A politician to seek chairmanship of a political party?
Stunning news, indeed!
Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson?
That Jesse Jackson?
How much did his redemption cost?
This is the second time the people of Gwinnett County are buying this building.
Along with all the rent paid.
This article doesn't mention that the board also voted to buy back its headquarters building for $52 million.
The same property they bought in 2004 for $12.5 million, sold a year later for $17 million, and have paid roughly $26 million in rent since.
But then it's always easy spending other peoples money.
Edit: just saw the companion article to this one; my apologies for posting before looking at the other headlines.
With the DNA, the government can clone armies of criminals to do their bidding..........
Odd that this columnist supports laws requiring honest citizens to submit to background checks by the government to purchase guns, yet opposes the collection of phone and internet data by the same government to (allegedly) prevent terrorism.
Aren't both issues about security?
(Just to be clear, I prefer freedom over security.)
But...but....but Ms. Pelosi said paying unemployment was good for the economy and now you suggest that it's better for people to be working?!?
Maybe there's hope for you after all!
Ms. Pelosi has claimed that every $1 spent on unemployment creates $1.73 of work output.
How then, does the logic of my statement escape you?
BTW, I am not a right winger.
I am just as dismayed at mindless Republican cheerleaders as I am with myopic Democrat myrmidons.
Liberals and pedagogues are just easier to pick on due to their over-inflated sense of the value of their own opinions
“Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses to our economy. Economists will tell you, this money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and it’s job creating. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

So any loss of jobs through sequestration should be a boon to the economy.
One can assume those critical of the Fair Tax for being unduly burdensome on the poor will be turning out in droves to vote against any SPLOST.
