Great points Pubby, LPPT, mojo and Glassdogs.
I thought the same thing when I saw the video. How the Chicken World 4 is selectively outraged at keeping the promises their worshippers like, but don't care about the promises that they don't.
We are hell bent on keeping a verbal promise made by Chairman Shearin, but not ok with keeping a written, legal promise (contract). The hypocrisy of this made me think that maybe a reality show was being filmed to see who could possibly be gullible enough to fall for this, but then the applause reminded me.
Crafting your responses around hopeful applause lines from your worshippers makes you a great activist, but a terrible legislator.
Of the guys up there I know, they seem like good, decent men (on both sides of this issue). I would defend them more if they could present to anyone ANYTHING that they have done in the past 2 years to help attract businesses with good paying jobs to Paulding.
The above comment about the housing industry is very thought provoking, and may be the "new normal" that we need to all accept. That there is no plan for growth other than homes, low end retail, thrift shops and fast food. When the forthcoming higher taxes on the homes push the lower income folks out of the county, then who is going to work in all these businesses?
Great debate on both sides.
