City Hall’s wish list for the Gold Dome. So many laws, so little time. Will this deal ever close? If you still care, look at how your neighborhood voted in the presidential election. Give that man a flame-thrower. Yes, there will be tests. Don’t fail. A 2016 list… Hilarity ensues. Did you say BRRRR, sir? Lowest bidder super-glue, maybe? Want to buy a president? Share this:TwitterFacebookTumblrRedditEmailPrint Related About Author Ginny 7 Comments Benevolus That list of 7 tests for the GOP is shallow and if that is the sort of thinking that will result in policy decisions then we are in trouble. For example “Does it add to the economic power of the US and create good jobs for Americans?” That’s a great soundbite and a nice sentiment, but that can be a complicated issue. Something that looks good in the short term can be disastrous in the long term. We should be training people to become fluent in complexity, not always dumbing-down complex issues into bumper sticker slogans.

Customers have expectations when choosing a brand name from cars to sandwiches. Parolee tax credit for business, another reason to end the Ga corporate income tax and the bureaucracy to keep it live as a low revenue contributor and maybe negative net worth.

Would it be tough to defeat de Blasio? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/5/hillary-clinton-being-urged-to-run-for-mayor-of-ne/ January 6, 2017 10:29 AM Log in to Reply Saltycracker Macy’s and Kohl’s had a rough Christmas and are closing a lot of stores. A Macy’s in Athens is one. Circumstances vary and I’m a fan of both of these stores but my holiday purchases from them were off. Time was tight for me and, my bad, in purchasing I found their sales marketing confusing and complicated. Last holiday purchase from Macy’s was a leather chair, on line. Paid sales tax, but still wonder how much GA missed on internet sales tax, Athens might need it to cover legislated exemptions like tax free days and closed stores.

Totally unrelated, but there is a rumor going around that Publix bought the Varsity and DQ and maybe a few more lots at Broad and Milledge. The Varsity, it is further rumored, may move to the Epps Bridge development. That would be weird. January 6, 2017 2:25 PM Log in to Reply xdog Holy shit. Epps Bridge is Oconee County. Weird isn’t the word. I haven’t felt so displaced since Barnett’s closed. January 6, 2017 6:16 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Heck, I’ve felt displaced ever since DaVinci’s closed. Best stuffed pizza I ever had. Nancy’s in downtown is close… January 7, 2017 8:27 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
