the event center at 924 West broad is where the shootings are at - that place needs to be shut down.

I think the Carmike theater offers the best ingress and egress with exit points in all directions. Secondly with the Grocery store and drug store right in front of the theater The close proximity of the grocery store,drug store and bank would create an efficiency born out of convenience that none of the other locations offer.

  just my two cents...

ustaknow 1 year, 3 months ago on Bishop: Congress ought to be punished

i am ready for a 3rd party in 2016,-one that runs on a platform of abolishing income tax and replacing it with a national sales tax. Because the rich abuse tax codes and the poor abuse welfare.

i am sick and tired of republicans and especially democrats One borrows and spends- the other taxes, borrow and spends. One is bad - the other is much worse

We are tired of wars and welfare.

The food stamps need to be changed to labor stamps If you need food, you trade labor hours for food credit. If you are already working full time then this ,of course, would not apply to you. Also if you are disabled this would not apply to you.

The history of welfare in the U.S. started long before the government welfare programs we know were created. In the early days of the United States, the colonies imported the British Poor Laws. These laws made a distinction between those who were unable to work due to their age or physical health and those who were able-bodied but unemployed. The former group was assisted with cash or alternative forms of help from the government. The latter group was given public service employment in workhouses.

As to Sanford Bishop wanting to give Washington a raise- LOL Washington is already the largest employer in the nation. Washington spends more money annually that the entire mkt cap of the top 30 DJI companies combined. Many of these federal offices overlap state government offices and is nothing more than duplicate services and a waste of money.

For Sanford to endorse pay raises in Washington without a budget in place tells me He is part of the problem.

Liberalism will collapse when there is no one left to tax.

" In all, the government committed more money to the 10 million former public servants last year than the $690 billion it paid to 54 million Social Security beneficiaries."

USA TODAY 9-29-11 article titled " Federal Retirement plans almost as costly as social Security' If we raise age on SS then i say we should raise age on fed pensions the private sector working class is always paying for everyone and every body but when it comes time to take it on the chin- the private sector working class is the punching bag of choice

The Rich Abuse tax codes and the poor abuse welfare The working class is paying for it all I say we should abolish income tax and replace it with national sales tax this way all have skin in the game and not just the working class ( We exempt disabled people and needs based goods - like food from the tax )

This move would capture revenue from an underground economy that currently pays no taxes.

If you ask me- The democrats need to do a little cleaning up in the senate. It took Mitch McConnell going around Reid to get something done.

Reid doesn't want to negotiate and Obama does not know how to negotiate.

may 15th 2010 Nancy Pelosi tells musicians they can quit their jobs because they will have healthcare May 15, 2010 tags: Democrats, healthcare reform, Nancy Pelosi, policies, Politics

Earlier this week Nancy Pelosi stated that she considers the healthcare reform bill an entrepreneurial bill because it will allow people to quit their jobs. Huh?

This is what she had to say:

We see it as an entrepreneurial bill,” Pelosi said, “a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care

I am not sure if you can call a musician an entrepreneur, but that is just a side note (pardon the pun) to the main issue here. The bigger issue here is that Nancy Pelosi is urging people to quit their jobs to pursue their dreams because the American taxpayer will foot the bill for their healthcare insurance.

There is nothing wrong– of course– with pursuing a dream, but to encourage people to quit working because those of us who work hard will also support these people as well, is just irresponsible. People have been quitting jobs to better themselves and to follow their dre#$%$ince the foundation of America and before, but never before have we had a congressman stand up and tell an audience that if they do so the government– meaning of course, the taxpayer– will take care of them.
