OK Numerouno I game, what rights? You answered your own question in the second sentance when you said "HE IS FOR DENYING" not Chick-fil-a. I mean when you get right down to it whats different between straight people and gay people other than what they do in the privacy of their home.
Love is not defined by a piece of paper and if it is that is a pretty shallow way to commit to another person. Your rights, his rights and my rights are spelled out in the Bill of rights written by our fore fathers, so again I have to ask what rights?
WantingFacts did you flunk out of school? I mean seriously. The GCVB gets most if not all of their funding from the hotel/ motel tax which tourists pay when they stay in Gwinnett. So how is that "our money"?
People generally hire an economic development director to bring new businesses into the area they serve. In case they didn't teach you this in economics class, new business = sales tax dollars and JOBS + lower property taxes in some cases. If you haven't been to downtown Lawrenceville and the surrounding area we have many vacant properties. The EDD will work to lure businesses to those properties.
While I'm not a fan of big government spending, Lawrenceville has done a good job of holding costs down in tough economic times. AS a resident this is one job I can get behind.
Rob14 First the County/ City budget is seperate from the school system school budget. Since this is a "CITY" project it in no way would have anything to do with your school in Mountain View, which happens to be a few miles away from Lawrenceville.
Second schools per say ask for these materials for many reasons. One of which may be that your school may have a larger portion of poorer students than other schools. Schools these days tend to treat all children equal and want them all to have the same stuff. So if you can donate then great. If you can't then don't feel like it's your burden.
Look at your map. Mountain View and Lawrenceville are a few miles apart. Lawrenceville can afford to do this because of SPLOST funds and the city has been wise with it's budget unlike some other government entities.
Also think about this. The County/ City taxes are seperate from those of the school system. Schools ask for donations because all children have to be equal in the eyes of the school officials. It could be that your school has a large population of poorer kids whose parents can't afford these items.
